Project 10 pan (or 11 in my case)...

So I recently bought a new MAC foundation, and as I was putting it into my make up storage, I came across these...

Ergh! WHY did I need to buy another MAC foundation?! WHY?!

I am offcially not buying another foundation until I have used every last drop of these! Full stop.

Foundation is probably one of my favourite products to buy and experiment with, so I am definitely going to miss buying it. But, alas, I need to start saving my money a little more.

For now I'm just going to have to start thinking about which foundation I am going to treat myself with once I've finished...

Lots of Love

Tigi Bed Head Dumb Blonde Reconstructor...

On the subject of Tigi Bed Head, I thought I would share my thoughts on the Dumb Blonde Reconstructor Conditioner, which is made to be used after highlights - although anyone can use it as its just an intensive conditioner.

Now the fact that the Tigi Bed Head shampoo and conditioner in my last review impressed me so much, I was expecting bigger and better things from this intensive conditioner too. I'm a big fan of intensive hair conditioners, and I figured that seen as I have bleached high lights, this would be fabulous.... nahhhahhhh.

It smells nice, and although its quite a thick consistancy, its not too hard to work with. But my hair felt greasy and horrible after using it, and felt like it left a thick film over my hair. It was awful, and I found myself washing my hair again pretty much straight away.

I've tried it a number of different ways, using it as a normal conditioner, using it once a week as an intensive one, keeping it on over night, using a lot, using a little, everything, but it just doesn't seem to be for me.

I don't know whether its me or not, but there does seem to be some pretty positive reviews out there of it - have you tried it? What do you think?

Personally, my hunt for perfect hair continues!

Lots of Love

Tigi Bed Head Urban Antidotes Resurrection Shampoo and Conditioner...

For a long time I was under the impression that shampoo was there to clean hair, conditioner to make it softer and easier to brush, and it was the treatments and serums that you used that really made the difference to your hairs condition.

That was until I started using the Tigi Bed Head Urban Antidotes Resurrection Shampoo and Conditoner.

I had always heard good things about this shampoo, but I never really saw the point in spending so much money on it. So when I saw them on for £15.99 for two salon sized bottles a couple of months ago. I decided to go for it.

Each bottle is 750ml, and when I compared the price and size to my Herbal Essences, it didn't actually work out that much more, which I was happy about.

These sets come in 3 different strengths depending on what kind of condition your hair are in. I opted for the most intensive ones, and I am very concious that bleaching my hair is definitely having a negative effect on my hair.

So what do they say?

'Urban Anti-Dotes, Resurrection Shampoo and Conditoner is designed for weak brittle hair which needs some extra attention! Micro shields boost strength and stamina creating great results.Resurrection shampoo and Conditoner will cleanse, condition and thicken hair, help prevent colour fading and adds a thermal protection, detangles and smooths cuticle, hair will be 3x stronger and 12x smoother.'

This is the most amazing product I have ever used on my hair. It smells really good, and leaves my hair so UNBELIEVABLE soft, I literally can't stop touching it. It makes my hair look bright and shiney, and doesn't leave any stickyness. The best thing is it is used just like your regular shampoo and conditioner, so there's no waiting around.

The bottles are pretty big and bulking, and are nothing to write home about on the looks front, but they have a very useful pump, meaning your not fannying about squeezing too much out of the bottle.

Cheapsmells stock several different types of twin sets, and every now and then have them on offer - this week being one of those times :)

Each of the discriptions for the different types are fairly specific, so go have a read through them and find the right one for you!
Although its a fairly big payout, it works out roughly the same as drugstore shampoos, and is so worth it. I don't think I could use another shampoo again.

Lots of Love

Hey everyone!

I hope your all very well! It feels very strange being on here, it feels like its been years! I decided to give myself abit of time off from all forms of technology - you have probably noticed I haven't been on here or twitter too much at all in the past month or so.

Without boring you too much - and I no I kind of touched on it a couple of posts ago - a lot has been going on with me over the past couple of months, both good and bad, and I really try and put my all into my blogging, but I just felt I couldn't, so I decided to just take a step back for a little while.

But I'm back now and ready for a fresh start, both in my life and my blog :)

Firstly the blog - you will notice that it has got a bit of a new look. I felt that my blog got a bit messy and a bit child like, so I wanted to go for a cleaner, simpler look, thats a little more grown up. Let me know what you think!

Next my life - I've been living with my parents for the past few months, but I am going back to uni at the end of september, so next week I will be moving into my new house. I'm really looking forward to seeing all my lovely housemates again, and as much as I love living at home, it can get pretty manic at times, so it will be nice to have my own space again.

I finished my bar job last week in preperation for starting a new job nearer to where I live. Last year I traveled back to my home town EVERY weekend to work, and although I loved it there, and it gave me chance to see the boy a lot, the travelling took its toll and I felt as though I missed out on a lot in leeds. I have an exciting new job working, which I will tell you more about later, and it is only a 10 minute train ride away from my house. It may mean that I see the boy less, but we're so strong at the moment , we will definitely make it work!

Thanks to all of this change, now also felt like the right time to start blogging again.

I have lots of things coming up, including my first giveaway to celebrate getting to (over) 100 followers aswell as my return.

I've been out of the loop for so long - I want to know what you've all been up to!

Lots of Love


PS have any of you tried out the new blogger yet? just doing my first post on it now, its so strange! What do you guys think?

I'm sorry I can't reply :(

Hi Guys!

I just wanted to pop a quick post up to say I'm sorry that I haven't been replying to any of your fabulous comments you've been leaving. For the past few months blogger has not been letting me comment on any blogs at all, including my own, which is really annoying! So please don't think I'm ignoring you, I'm not. I love reading your comments, so please keep leaving them!

Remember you can always email me, or get in touch via Twitter.

So sorry again, I love you all so much, and thank you for all of your lovely comments!
