☆ Presents I got my sister for her 21st Birthday ☆

22/11/2017

As some of you may know my sister’s birthday was at the beginning of October. As this was a special birthday for her I picked up quite a few presents. Some which are practical and she can use and some are for her to keep and treasure. ☀

To start with I picked her up two tops, She had her eye on them and I said they could contribute to part of her birthday present. Both tops are from Topshop. One is black with embroided flowers on and the other top is pink with ‘uh huh honey’ on.☀

Next I picked up her up a personalised Hoola. This is a makeup product she will use and she loves bronzer and contouring. The box comes personalised with her name on and the brush also has engraving on. I was disappointed with Benefits customer service and delivery. ☀

Also I picked Sloth notepad. She is a sloth in physical and spiritual form. She can now stay organised and make lists of things she needs to do. ☀

I picked her up the Jeffree Star Nude Volume lip collection. She loves nudes liquid lips so thought it would be a good idea to pick up the mini collection so she can fit them in her bag on a night out and try new shades.☀

☆ La Violetta Restaurant Review ☆

19/11/2017

I tried this restaurant a few months ago when I went with a few friends from work. Ever since then I have been meaning to go back. I took my sister there one day to have lunch so I thought I would write my review up even though its a little late.☀

This restaurant is based in Colliers Wood in Abbey Mills. It is a Italian restaurant that serves pizza, pasta and cakes. The space is nice filled with fairy lights, tables and has a relaxed vibe. We both ordered a garlic bread to share which comes with a wholemeal base. It was very yummy. Then for main we both had a pizza. The food is cooked fresh on site and tastes amazing. ☀

I think the restaurant is amazing and defiantly worth a visit. The staff are very friendly, the food tastes good and the vibe is lovely.☀

Let me know if you have tried this restaurant and your thoughts on it.☀

☆ Holographic Makeup ☆

15/11/2017

If you have know me for a long time or followed my blog you will know i love holographic and unusual coloured makeup. I love being unique and I can channel the vibe by wearing a highlighter that shifts colour or is holographic. I love being creative and the way I like to express myself is through makeup.☀

In the beginning it was hard to find unusual makeup that stood out, but when Anastasia released the Moon Child glow kit, I knew I had to have it. I loved that a highlighter could shine and look beautiful, but when in certain light or turning your head the colour shifts. I think it is beautiful. I believe every brand has then followed on from that. High end brands first copied or felt inspired and now drugstore brands have followed. I think this is amazing as it makes products more accessible to people with different price ranges.☀

Then companies moved onto lip products which have a shift to them. I think it is amazing, companies are listening to consumers and creating new unique shades.☀

I have listed some products and pictures below for you all to see.☀

ABH Moonchild and Aurora Glowkit

☆ Craig David TS5 Concert ☆

12/11/2017

I love Craig David so much and after falling in love with his music last year and attending a concert he held at the 02 Brixton academy. I have followed him ever since on twitter, Instagram and snapchat. I was so excited when he was creating his newest album and when he released the first single of it.☀

IMG_7370

I had previously signed up to his mailing list and when the time came pre ordered his new album to play in my car. When his album became available I had 24 hour early access to try and get some tickets to his small TS5 event he was holding at Brixton academy. I was able to get 3 tickets when the day. Which was amazing as I woke up early to try and get the tickets. I was so excited for it and had a count down on my phone. ☀

The event was on the Friday 3rd of November and after getting my hair done, I travelled with sister to go and see Craig perform. It was a truly amazing night we managed to get good seats and his performance was amazing. Craig played lots of songs new and old ones and did his usual remixes.The crowd loved Craig and he performed so well. ☀

I loved the event and have got many videos and pictures to remember the night. I would 1000% recommend for anyone to see him in concert as he was truly amazing. ☀

Let me know if you have been to any concerts recently.☀

☆ My New Hair☆

08/11/2017

After having a love/hate relationship with my hair for a while I decided it was time for a change. I wanted my hair to be blonder and look nicer. I always wear it up as either I don’t have enough time to do my hair or I don’t have the energy to do it. Now from tying it in a high ponytail for a while, my hair is beginning to show damage. Where I tie a hairband in my hair, my hair is snapping and breaking off. Plus my hair is in need of a good cut to make it look healthy and appear fuller.☀

This is a before photo, which shows my colour was warm and blocky.☀

So I first went for a consultation with a well know hairdresser in London, to help me achieve the look I was after. After having lots of different conversations on way to achieve the look I was after we decided I needed to have a good hair cut to create a lob (long bob) and then discuss colour again. This is because my option was to have extensions or a cut to create the colour and fullness I liked.☀

I had my hair cut by my friend who is a hairdresser, and then travelled back for another consultation with the hairdresser. We discussed the options and I then I paid a deposit and booked in for two weeks time. I was so excited to see the end result of my hair that I had a countdown on my phone and kept talking about getting my hair done. ☀

On the day of the appointment I travelled to the salon which was Michael John in Knightsbridge. I arrived 15 minutes before my appointment. I met with Despina again and we discussed what look I was after I showed her a picture of the hair I like saying I like the colour a cool, ashy blonde that looked natural with pieces running through to break the colour up. ☀

She started on the transformation which took around 3 hours in total. She did a full head of balyage on me starting with sectioning my hair and painting pre lightener on pieces and placing clingfilm in between sections. After she completed my whole head I went under heat for about 5 minutes and then she went through and applied colour to the pieces of hair in between. She washed off the back and then I went back under the heat for about 10 minutes. Finally my sides were washed off and I had one shampoo and an Olaplex treatment, before having another shampoo and an toner. After that she washed my hair and applied conditioner before going back over to her section.☀

I then had my hair dried and lightly tonged. I was so impressed with the colour as she was drying my hair. I was in love and felt the colour she had achieved was the best colour I have ever had. We took lots of pictures and videos with the ring light of my hair. I was so amazed and shocked with the colour.☀

My hair looks and feels amazing and I would 100% recommend Despina. I will link her instagram here:  https://www.instagram.com/depiboo3/?hl=en☀

Let me know if you are interested in getting your hair done by Despina, she is a hair magician.☀

☆ Huda Beauty Foundation ☆

05/11/2017

My sister always love makeup and especially base products as she likes her skin to look nice. She’s always been the girl who loves full coverage foundation, so when it cam to Huda releasing a foundation, she was keen to try it. My sister has suffered with acne for most of her life and now her skin is dry. So she has to be careful of matte or dryer foundations.☀

IMG_7326

Last Friday we travelled up London to Selfridges where we visited the Huda Beauty counter. It was heaving. We waited in line and my sister was put on a list where a makeup artist would try to match a foundation shade to her skin. We waited about 10 minutes. The lady matched her to a foundation called vanilla. ☀

After Chloe had been matched the lady used the primer, foundation and brush to apply the colour all over her face. Then she added a bit of bronzer to warm her face up. Chloe liked the colour and coverage the foundation gave her, so bough it there and then.☀

IMG_7327

The next day was my sister graduation and she wore the foundation, her face look beautiful and even in pictures her skin looked amazing. Chloe loves the foundation and is excited to try other items from Huda Beauty’s range. ☀

The foundation is £32 and she received a small sample size of the primer. The packaging is lovely and looks elegant. It is plastic but you can’t tell until you pick it up.☀

Let me know if you have tried the foundation and your thoughts on it.☀

☆ Disney Store Haul ☆

01/11/2017

On my day off I went up London with my sister we travelled to a few different areas and when we were up near Selfridges, we popped into Disney Store. I have never been in there before and it was lovely. All the Christmas decorations were out, which made me happy. ☀

I had popped in to pick a friend up a gift and ended up with a few items for myself as well.☀

When I went to the till I ended up buying this super cute carrier bag, so I can take my lunch to work in.  ☀

I picked up one tsum tsum and then two sets of the new Ufufys . They are super cute and love them. I am thinking about collecting a few more. My friend loved there tsum, which makes me happy as I felt a lot of pressure to pick a present. ☀

Let me know if you love Disney store and if you have picked anything up recently. ☀
