I just can't wait the moment when I'll see you all... all my family and my soul friends. It passed almost one year since I haven't seen you. It's a long time but I still have patience and I'm waiting the day when I'll put my bag in the airplane and I'll fly to get to you. Many feelings are pushing my heart into a sad mood, but I keep my strength up, my smile on my face and that's it. Many times I'm asking myself if I can do it, but I realize that I must do it, I don't have a choice. A new world, new friends, new habits, new me...
Hi everyone! I don't know if you have guessed by now but I am a big fan of Denman Brushes! See my post history if you haven't seen my review on a previous Denman brush. I absolutely love their brushes especially the quirky designs that they do. I have tried the Tutti Fruitti brush and I have been using it everyday up until now... I have cheated on my tutti fruitti with this amazing new brush that I have just got (D80L code). How amazingly gorgeous is this zebra print denman hairbrush?! I love animal print and this has impressed me no end. If you didn't know Denman brushes are renowned for their quality so much so that hairdressers worldwide chose to use them on their clients... mine uses them too! This one in particular is a D3 Denman brush this is probably the one that I see the most at my hairdressers as it is ideal for smoothing, shaping and styling my hair.
There are various styles of the D3 brush out there but I just had to share this one with you are I am sure that all of you will agree when I say its the best looking hairbrush that I've seen. The animal print range comes in 3 different colours of Zebra print: White, Purple and Blue. The brush is suitable for all hair types and lengths and the close set pins don't damage your hair like I have found other brushes to do. You also don't get static that you do from other brushes. Another great thing about Denman is that for such high quality hairbrushes you would expect a high price tag... well guess what they are affordable! I think they are great value for money this brush in particular costs $10.99 from the Denman website. Check out Denman's website where you can browse all of their products.
Well it's been slow-going but I finally have time to show you what I consider to be the jewel in the crown of Pretty Serious's debut "Hello World" collection - BSOD. Or for you unfortunate (says the smug Mac user) PC owners - "Blue Screen of Death". Funnily enough, when my well-worn Mac's hard drive crashed last week, the only thing I couldn't recover was my photos of this polish! How gorgeous is this blue? Complete slam dunk for me as it combines one of my favourite colours with jelly glitter. Plus it reminds me of this princess dress. Ah... one day... It goes from a rich, dark midnight to a vibrant electric blue depending on the light. No problems at all with application, and it's quite densely glitter-packed so although this is three coats, I probably could have done with two. I cannot fault this. If Kaz would release this polish texture in a myriad of different colours, I would happily buy all of them (hint! purple please!). If you're a bit hesitant to try anything from Pretty Serious, I suggest you try this one first, you'll be a convert. BSOD is available from Pretty Serious for $9.95 with matching eyeshadow and lip gloss, too!
Skin special this week ladies, feel free to share your tips below.
1. If you run out of exfoliator dont use salt on your face, use sugar its less harsh to your skin.
2. If you have a spot and have no tea tree oil to hand use sudocrem or toothpaste they both dry out the spot causing it to heal over quicker.
3. If your skin feels tired and dull. Slice a cucumber and rub it all over your face. It will refresh the skin and the coolness will make your pores glow causing a healthy complexion.
4. Fancy a facial at home? Boil the kettle, pour hot water into a bowl, hover your head over the bowl with a towel over your head and relax for 10 minutes whilst the skin opens your pores. Be careful not to burn your nose though... that has happened to me and its not nice!
5. Take a Vitamin E tablet! It helps your hair, nails and skin! Its a beauty must.
I went to Ulta today and got the new Urban Decay Build your own Palette! I love it so much! Here's what I picked. Inside before filling comes with a free eyeshadow called Walk of Shame. I chosesix colors before de-potting. The six shadows I chose after they got into the palette. Swatches with UDPP base. In order they are Blunt, Chase, FreeLove, Bordello, Roach, and Radium. The new eyeshadows are much softer and more pigmented than their old ones. I love them! I forgot to swatch Walk of Shame but its a matte soft taupe color. Highly suggest doing this, it's so much fun!
Dieting is not an easy thing to do. First of all you know that you got to be persistent. Some individuals are weak and can’t manage their diets. Here’s the list of advices you shouuld not do while dieting and losing weight: healthy diet don’t start with the most rigid diet; Don’t challenge yourself with the most rigid diet you find. This an ordinary slip when a diet newbie tries to stick to the most rigid diet and, as the result, fails. Choose the diet that is sane and that is healthy for you. If you’re a dieting newbie and not sure about the diet, then find another that makes sense for you; Don’t expect things to come over night. “Good things come to those who wait”. You can’t expect whenever diet you chose to help you losing half of your overweight in short period of time. You can have to think of your health first and then the result will come. Exercises while dieting don’t do physical exercises too often; Don’t do physical exercises too often while dieting. You have to give your muscles and body a time to heal. Hard everyday exercises are not a natural situation for your body. Unless if you’re an Olympic athlete; Don’t miss by your meals. There’re dieting newbies who miss their meals. They think this will help them lose weight because they’re not gaining any weight eating their meals. Dieting is not about just losing weight or starving, dieting is about eating correct and healthy foodstuff.
Happy Sunday Everyone! It has been so gloomy here in my neck of the woods lately. We had rain for 4 days non-stop! Thankfully this weekend is much nicer and today is supposed to be a great day for cooking outside and hanging out with family and friends. Recently a representative for "Jamberry" nails asked me to test out these nail shields and see how I like them. I googled "Jamberry Nail Shields" to see what it was all about about. These are vinyl nail shields that you warm up with a hair dryer before applying to your nails. The instructions are easy and if you want to learn more about this product search for Jamberry. I loved all the patterns I saw on their website. They all look so adorable and fun to wear! Now on to my thoughts about this novelty. I followed the directions that came in the package to the best of my ability but, for some reason, I had a real tough time getting the shields to go on smooth on my nails.
I also had a hard time heating the shield with a hair dryer. I used tweezers to hold the shields while I heated them. As you heat the shield it gets soft and maleable and that is when you apply it to the nail. This is where I got stuck. No matter what I did or how well I smoothed the shield on my nail it just didnt want to stick to my nail bed properly. In short, I messed it all up and could not do a full manicure with it. I must have done something wrong. There are a lot of good reviews of this product on YouTube, even videos on how to apply it properly. Since I wasn't successfull in aplying these I really can't give an apropriate review of the product. There are plenty of shields left in the sheet that was sent to me so I will let my daughter (who is a LOT better with these things than I) experiement with them to see how well it works, Have any of you tried Jamberry Nail shields? What did you think? Share your thoughts!
