I really must say..

...sorry. I have been completely useless at posting these last few weeks. A combination of Christmas and feeling awfully ill has not helped :(

I hope everyone had a good Christmas! Anyone any exciting plans for New Year? I think me and my friends are just going to a local pub and spend the night getting rather merry on wine.

So, tonight I decided to dye my hair. Now, I dyed it a slight red colour last time and liked it. This time I've done it that little bit more redder. I used Loreal Paris Feria colour 3D in Plum Power (P37)

I've used the Loreal semi-permanent colours before so thought I'd try a permanent. It comes with a conditioning shine shampoo which is actually quite a big bottle and is enough for up to four washes!

004

I won't lie, when I first put it on I nearly cried! It goes on bright red and I mean BRIGHT red...think pillar box red. It does say that this should happen in the instructions and that it will calm down but it was a bit of a shock at first! So after 30 minutes of watching it slowly turn a less vibrant shade of red it was time to rinse it off. Let's just say washing it off very much resembled the shower scene from Psycho!! Ha, not good! Mother bears white shower curtain will never look the same again, oops.

My hair is now silky soft and a lovely dark red colour :) I shall have to post pictures tomorrow when the lighting is better as you just won't get the full colour effect now. Plus I'm sat here with a head full of rollers looking hawt ;)

Eyeko...

So, I've never used any Eyeko products but I've seen a lot on other blogs about them so thought I'd give them a go. I went onto their website and found myself wanting so much! So in the end I decided on Vampira Polish and thought I'd try the 'Suprise Bag' they had on offer (unfortunately I can't find it any more on the website so guess it must have ended!). The Suprise Bag cost £10 and you were guaranteed £20 worth of products :)

I was impressed with how quickly they arrived especially with all this snow! I only placed my order on Thursday and they came this morning. So I'll start off with the nail varnish. I wanted something a bit Gothic to go with my outfit for tonight and this was perfect

002

It's a black with a blood red shimmer going through and it looks really good on! Also it goes on really nicely, not too runny or too thick and I only needed one coat, so for £3.50 I'll defiantly be trying out other colours :)

(This picture doesn't do it justice but it really is a nice colour!)

Next the surprise bag

001

As I said before it cost £10 and you got £20 worth of items inside...obviously pot luck but I like the fact you never know what you're going to get ;)

001

Inside I received one of these London Lip Glosses in Shorditch and is worth £13.

006

It goes on nicely, it does feel a little bit thick and sticky at first but once you've applied it, it has a nice smooth, soft feeling. It also smells really lovely too!

Next is Cheeky Colour Blush Duo in Glow Getter and is worth £8. It comes in cute little packaging too :)

005

004

It goes on really lightly and gives you a nice pinky glow that you can use in both summer and winter. Also it's perfect for either day or night wear and it's not too heavy or powdery :)

Last Item I received was this Magic Bronzer Blush in Rio worth £5.

003

Now normally I don't use bronzer, well actually I've never used it! So this is the perfect chance to give it a go. I've not had chance to use this yet but when I do I'll let you all know how it went :)

So, for £10 I got £26 worth of products, really was a bargin!!

Blast from the past..

You ever have it when you've not listened to a song for ages and when you do it brings back great memories?! These songs are doing that right now :)




Poorly sick

I'm in bed poorly sick :( I have this stupid cold/sinusitis...I wish it would go! I rocked up to work only to be told to go home 10 minutes later..boo :(
So am currently in bed with hot chocolate and Muppet Christmas Carol on, starting to feel very festive :)

This has to be one of my favourite Christmas films...although Love actually has to be my absolute favourite! This is the best scene from it, always makes me cry...'To me you are perfect'

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

So who's had snow? We've had a little bit about a couple of inches or so. Thankfully we've got off lightly and not had as much as some places.

003x

The snow has given me a good excuse to wear wellies again...super comfy and super warm :)

I also had to buy some gloves, my hands just aren't up to surviving this freezing cold weather! So I bought these mittens from River Island for £12.99...cosy and cute!

I've been reading on quite a few blogs about Eyeko and wondered what people though about it? After nosing on the website I've already got a bit of a list of things I'd like to try, here's just a few..
