How I got my hair wavy without using heat

Hi All!!

I wanted to show you the easiest way for me to get wavy hair without using heating products such as straightners etc and this is by using twist rollers or flexi-rods whichever term you prefer. You can buy these from almost any store such as Boots or a hair shop but I actually bought mine from the £1 shop! I got a pack of 6 rollers but I am planning on purchasing some more as that really isn't enough.

Right so if you have never used these rollers before all you need to do is twist your hair into the rollers, once all hair is twisted use some hair spray to set it and leave you hair protected for a while for it to work.....

I left mine in for about 2 hours, so not very long to make my hair curly but enough to gain some beach waves. If you want more wavy/curly hair then it is probably best to put these rollers in before you go to bed and sleep in them. But this time I just waited a couple of hours for it to take effect before the start of my day.....

Here is a closer look at the rollers.....

Once I took them out this is how my hair looked.....

Considering my hair was bone straight when I put the rollers in there is a difference and I will re-edit this post with a before photo so you can see the difference....

This is one of my first attempts at using the rollers and I will be buying some more and also leaving the hair in for much longer so look out for a post of that! I think it's also really great that there are ways of getting some hairstyles without using heat all the time. Gives my hair a nice break from the damage straigtners can do sometimes.

Do you use twist rollers? What are your thoughts?

Help: Choosing a Mask??

Hi All!!

I have been invited to a friends 21st Birthday Party next month which I am really excited for as it will be a Masquerade theme. I actually had the same theme from my own 21st birthday so it will bring back memories for me!

However I have a problem, I don't know which mask to order?!! Firstly this is what I will be wearing, the sparkly heels my colleague's gave me a voucher for.....

New Aqua dress I purchased in the 80% off sale....

So I kinda what a silver mask to match the heels and I really don't mind if it's on a stick or has to be tied around my head. These are my options...

Which mask do you prefer?

Outfit of the Night: Animal Print

Hi All!!

I went out last night to a night called Spin in Sutton Coldfield and really enjoyed myself. Although not a late night; because I can't seem to do these much often anymore! I did feel as though I was in an episode of The Only Way is Essex haha, the venue was really nice and everyone was so well dressed sort of similar to the show? Also there was a bit of drama which lets face it if your a fan of the show you know shiz is about to go down nearly every episode!!

Anyways here is what I wore......

Dress: Topshop
Heels: Republic

Here are a few photos of the night...

I hope you liked!

Cancer Research UK: Help sponsor Richard!

Hi All!!

Just a serious post guys, my boyfriend Richard, is doing a sponsored run for Cancer Research this month at the Major Series. I would really really really appreciate it if you could find it in your heart to sponsor him from as little as £2?! Richard's father, John has recently been diagnosed with Lung cancer so this is a cause close to our hearts!

I won't blab on about it as to be honest I am never quite sure what to say of these topics. All I can say is he is being treated, the cancer seems to be shrinking due to treatment he is receiving which is the best news we have received. So if you wish to sponsor my boyfriend who I am so proud of then just click here!!

So far he has raised £270!!!!

Thank you in advance if you do

Haul: Superdrug Bargain

Hi All!!

If you have been a follower of my blog for a few years then you may remember that I used to work for Boots and I worked there for seven years and enjoyed it very much! I don't miss the job but I certainly miss the people I worked with and of course the discount so much!! But since leaving almost a year ago I have worked out where to get the same items at a cheaper price. I do shop in Boots still but I will only buy something at their prices if I really have to just so I can get my Boots Advantage Points. Because lets face it, it really is the best points card on the high street.

But I have been buying more products from Superdrug lately and I wanted to let you all know about the current offer on the L'Oreal products where selected items are currently £3 off! I adore the Voluminous mascara which usually costs £8.49 but at the moment they are only £5.49

So me being me the bargain lover I am decided to snap up two mascara's! If you are a fan of L'Oreal then get down to Superdrug now and get yourself some treats!!
