Brow Update

So in one of my first posts, I spoke about my eyebrows and how I was going to try and correct years of over plucking with castor oil, as advised by a threading therapist... well, its worked!

I finally grew back enough to get them threaded.

Body Scrubs

I though I'd post about something a little different from beauty and makeup today... body scrubs! I have tried lots of different scrubs, which I've either brought myself or been given as part of a gift for birthdays or Christmas. There are two that have really stood out to me and that I've purchased regularly since first trying them.

Handy Nail Tips and Tricks

For ages, I've kept a little folder with beauty tips and tricks I've heard or seen. I also picked up some valuable jewels of information when I trained as a nail technician. So I thought that I'd share some of them with you :) I'll do more posts with skin, beauty and hair tips, but I thought it was only right to start with nails as that's my forté.

This is just a short little post to say sorry I haven't blogged yet this week, I haven't been feeling well. I've started writing a 'tips and tricks' post, so I'll hopefully be posting that tomorrow :)

My Haircare Routine Part 2

As promised, here is part 2 of my haircare routine...

I am a huge advocate of using heat protection sprays. Any sort of heat styling isn't at all good for your hair, especially things like straighteners which are often set at high temperatures, so using a product that helps counteract the damage they can cause is a must! I spritz some heat protect on my hair while its still damp before drying it, and sometimes I'll add a bit more to the ends if I straighten or curl my hair.

My Haircare Routine Part 1

So as I've told you my nightly beauty routine, I thought I'd share my haircare routine with you guys too. I have quite long, thick hair that is naturally quite curly so my hairdryer is my best friend!

I start off by washing my hair with Garnier Ultimate Blends The Strength Restorer shampoo nd conditioner. I like to leave the conditioner on my hair for about 10 minutes as I find my hair is less frizzy and much easier to blow dry.

My Nightly Beauty Routine

A few years ago, I didn't really have a night time beauty routine. I used to just remove my makeup and moisturise if I felt like it. But when I hit 20, I decided that I should probably take a little bit more care of my skin. I didn't have very good skin as a teenager and always felt really insecure, like many teens, about spots, oily skin and large pores.
