Collection 2000 photo shoot for LOOK!

Evening my beaut's hope you all had a fab Christmas yesterday i received a CD in the post containing all the photos from the day.It was a truly fantastic day which i will always treasure as a memory<3>

Firstly we were all given our "theme" so to speak and i got the 1960s! hence the HUGE hair!
(can u believe it wasn't even back combed! just an amazing blow dry ! )

Then for MAKE UP ! obviously the best part!

And then the dreaded posing ! i was really nervous but the photographer was really nice and all the girls felt the same.

And to end the day we all got given our goody bags :DHope you all like the photo's and have an amazing new year!

Vichy Normaderm

I am always drawn into the concept of having beautiful flawless and perfect skin i have tryed many prescription treatments and micro dermabrasion but I'm always on the hunt for the next micricle working product!

So with that said i popped into boots to grab the botanics eye make up remover that Plink278 recommended on youtube "which they did not have by the way NOT IMPRESSED!" and as i was browsing i came across this new Vichy products, i have never used any vichy products before but have herd great things so when i read how it claims to purifies mattifies and hydrate whilst reducing blemishes and pores i couldn't not buy it !?

This products cost me £11.50 for 50 ml in boots and most the products in the range are around £10.Ive not tryed it yet but the smell is really fresh and light and the cream its self seems very thick so i think it will last a long time.

Thats all i can say on it now but il write a review in about 2 weeks to let you know how i got on with it.
Take care

Say bye bye !!

Thats right long nights and sunny days are long gone now and its time to say bye to some of are summer must haves!, and first thing is first get your storage at the ready because these things are never to be seen again until summer 2011!!

1.FAKE TAN!! - No body not one person expects you to be bronzed within an inch of your life in September! its not like your going to have hardly any skin exposed anyway so put it down!! This  A/W has a bit of an 1920's feel to it so if you want to be on trend this season girls im afraid the tan HAS to go !

2.CORAL LIPPY! - Sorry ladies but its a no brainier! The color coral brings out tans and brown tones in are summer skin but thats no good in the winter for a Winters alternative go for a burnt orange/red lipstick it has that orange color to it still but with more red than peach tones.

3.SUMMER FRAGRANCES! - In my opinion the winter months are all about strong statement sents some of my favorites are Dior pure poison,Angle,Alien both by Thierry Mugler and Prada the one in the rectangle bottle.

And thats it as far as your skin smell and make up goes, I hope this helped you guys out and i'l be writing a lot more posts to get all of us ready for A/W 2011 !!

I cut my HAIR !!!

I got the chop!
Yes fellow bloggies i went for the bob !

My hair was very long thick but really dry on the ends.I Had always wanted long locks but it just got so hard to manage if it was straight it would look straggly and if it was curly it would take far to long.
I love the bob its an iconic 1960's style that has varies so much mine is a very slightly graduated bob with long layers and i love it !
It falls natural straight now were as before it was curly and frizzy,my hair now shines and lays just like i wanted it to ! 

so what do you guys think ?

Meg ryan hair !

My mum has always wanted and loved meg's hair ,she has tryed several perms and curling tools but never managed
to create the look.

After 2 long hours i managed to make it happen! I used my Babyliss conicle wand Frizz ease hair spray and harmony extra firm hair spray .

The trick to getting thease seperated curls is to take tiney sections each section should be about a cm wide, The curls at the back need to be ulternated but at the front should all be curled away from the face. to keep a longer lasting curl spray with Frizz ease hair spray before you curl and harmony hair spray once curled.

take a look at my pictures to see the finished result :D x

How i take care of my skin

In the past i have sufferd with realy bad acne and as a result i was prescribed Roacutain ( not spelt correctly lol ) it was a really tuff treatment to have it works by stopping the production of oil meaning the pores can not get blocked with oil stopping spots and black heads.This treatment is very popular with TV presenters and other people on television a lot because it stops the face purspurating (sweating) meaning presenters will not sweat under the hot studio lights.The side effects of the treatment can range from depersion to weight gain .. luckly for me i didnt have anything like that although my skin became extreamly dry and flakey but my lips were even worse i could litteraly peel the surface skin of my lip off every morning i went through multiple lip cream ,balms and salvs but in the end it was worth it my skin is so much better now i still get a spot here and there but nothing like it was.The only hang up i have now is the scaring my skin is very red and has a lot of dips were the spots were.Being a beauty therapist i feel under extream presure to make sure that my skin looks the best it can at all times so i have tryed a lot of products, heres my skin steps.

1.Every morning and night i will cleanse my face to get rid of any oil dirt or debry left on my skin my best cleansers are: Dermalogica Ultra calming cleanser and NO7 soft smoothed gental cleanser.Both of thease are ok to remove eye make up with because they are so gental.

2.Three times a week i will exfoliate This aids the removal of dead skin cells and encourages cell renewal my best exfoliators is:Botanics (boots)

3.Twice a week i will use Boots tea tree nose pore stips This will keep my nose as decongested as possible and prevent spots.

4. After i cleanse in the morning i will moisturise before aplying my make up in the morning i use Nivia Soft and in the evening i like to use an anti wrinkle moisturiser i use Derma intensive + anti wrinkle night cream

5.Twice a week i will use a mask my fave is simple moisturising mask it really intensive and had a luxury texture!

Hope you enjoy and if there is any one out there who has had a hard time with acne and such things im only a email away if you ever want to talk ! take care xxx

oh summer were have you gone :O

im so borred :( that loviily summer sun we had has vanished and left us britt's with dull skys , rain and humidity in the air to top it all off ! i hate this kind of weather it just puts me in a picklee as to what to wear it June so you want to look summer'y but then again its dull so you cant pull off the cropped shorts and vest top you normaly would and then AS FOR THE RAIN!! well what do you do wedges are a no go dont want to slip on them bad boys ! but then plimpsoles get soaked although flip flops look the best option they they make your tootsies chilly and as for ballet pumps ..have you ever got a wet foot in a pump
(its not good spesh the squelching sound it makes !)

so my verdict is .... Bare Foot

Ladies get your pedicure its summer time !!!

Well its safe to say we have all been bitten by the summer bug! why do i know this you may ask ...well because of all the stunning sandal's ive been seeing of corse ! i had been wearing a snake skin 'ish type pair which i snagged from Peacocks last summer for under £10 and had been wearing them this summer untill they broke ! :( ... yes the saying buy cheap by twice came in just about here lol so in a state of shock i thought i best buy some new ones and found my Beauts from ASOS OUTLET

My Park Lane Tribal Detail Flat Sandals were ment to retial at a heavy footed £35.00 but on ASOS OUTLET they were a no swet £18.00 and there is no delivery charge if you opt for the super saver .

SO let me know what you think i love the african tribal look this summer i think its a trend that will never fade out and the gold embelishment will realy kick off that summer tan !
