being a little naughty... well alot:s

okay.. so my excuse for buying all these sweeties is..... me and my boyfriend were going to the cinema so we picked up a few sweeties to sneak in with us. BUT we found a new american sweet shop so we had to go in £18.00 later we'd purchase a few things to try; lucky charms cereal, we also bought two lucky charms marshmallow bars which we ate in the cinema, we bought a box of cupcake bites which we ate and also bought more in red velvet flavour, hersheys chocolate twizzlers, coca-cola vanilla (zero;) like that makes me feel less guilty hehe), raspberry jolly ranchet soda and i think tbat was all the american sweets we bought! i'd deffo buy more if it wasn't so expensive because of it being imported from america:( damn you english sweets!!

what i'm using on my hair atm..

I always switch on products and like to try new things, usually all drugstore because thrre more likely to be on offer, so i normally grab a bargain when i see one, these are the hair products ive been using at the moment and tools that i go for on most days!
Batiste dry shampoo; i always use dry shampoo in between hair washes, i normally wash my hair every couple of days sometimes less because of work (i work part time as a waitress). i dont usually go for a specific scent,i just grab whats there or on offer. schwarzkopf got to be styling powder; This is a powder which creates volume, its basically a sticky powder which u put on the roots of your hair and work it in, i normally then backcomb the root and it gives amazing volume, however your hair doesn't feel too nice with it in but it definatly looks big and volumized. schwarzkopf GLISS hair repair; This has liquid keratin and is for brittle, dull hair (mine!) i usually spray some on my hair all over whilst its damp and then after ice styled it ill spritz abit on the end of my hair, it does work and makes a difference too my hair, adds shine and feels smoother and silkier. Loreal paris studio silk and gloss hot straight spray; Just a basic heat protectant for your hair, nothing spectacular but does the job! clairol herbal essences split ends protection cream; This product is amazing it does everything it says on the bottle, i distribute oy through the ends of my hair whilst damp and also when dry, it makes them feel so much healthier and as if ive just had a trim, it smells amazing too soo fruity! Primark bristle brush; I'm not sure whether this is still available from primark as it was bought well over a year ago, its just a standard.bristle brush, i always go back to this brush, its so multi-purpose. you can use it for backcombing, brushing, blow drying etc. i just love it! GHD hair straightners; i cant rave about these enough, they make my hair stay straighter for so long, they make my hair more sleeker and silkier and it doesnt take as much effort or as long. i love these babies!. Andrew barton hair dryer; I love this hairdryer it is so powerful and has a turbo button and a cool button as well as other settings such as heat and power, a bog standard.hairdryer, dead easy to use and does the job! hope you all enjoyed !x

Had to share this yummy little treat with everyone, my mum went to asda yesterday and picked up some banoffee crunch cereal? its sort of like a granola consistancy, but much naughtier and nicer;D i've been eating it with natural yoghurt (fat free of course!) i'd definately reccomend trying some! mmmmmmmmm
And with yoghurt!

new hair?

i'm debating whether to have a change in hair colour, i'm thinking going either a caramel or a dark ash blonde colour. i've currently got my hair dresser trying different shades on a few hair samples, and i'm going in next week to see how they are. if i do go lighter im not going to do it all full head straight away i'm thinking of gradually building the colour so its not too much of a shock to the system-ha! this is my hair colour currently!
It looks quite dark on this picture but it more of a medium brown colour. what do you think?!x

The things i do when bored... pamper!

its my last day off tomorrow, well college not work:( i decided to have a nice hot shower after work tonight and use a few beauty products to make me feel all nice and refreshed:D oh the things that cheer me up haha!. i like to switch up on skincare products so i searched through my huge drawer or never ending products and picked out some to try!
dove summer glow nourishing lotion; i used this just on my legs, ive only used this a few times so im still undecided whether or not it does actual gradually give me a 'glow'i like it though, it moisturises well enough and doesn't smell like fake tan. soap and glory the righteous body butter;bThis is my all time favourite body butter its sooo rich, smells beautiful and feels amazing. everyone should own it! planet spa facial mud mask; i just found this so i thought why not give it a go, my skins not too good at the minute anyway but have to say i did feel really clean and a my face was really sofy after using it for around 10 minutes. Schwarzkopf gliss hair repair; This is a spray in conditioner, i didnt wash my hair in the shower tonight as i washed it this morning so after i got out the shower o sprayed some of this on it, it has liquid keratin in it and is suposed to repair your hair, my hair is quite damaged so im hoping it makes a difference after some frequent use of it, lets see! NSPA lime body scrub; I got this in a gift set for christmas with a few other bits to match, i really like it, it smells really fresh and would be great for an early morning shower as its nice and refreshing, its also a great exfoliator too! Barry M high shine nail polish in blueberry; A really pretty pastel blue crayon xolour its also nice and glossy chips easily though i think i need to invest in some good wuality top coat varnish, any reccomendations?. hope you liked it, much love xx
