New Year, New 'Do!

So, it's half past 1 in the morning and I'm typing away for the first time in a long time because I'm finally feeling brave (and delirious) enough to share a pic or two of my newly dyed hair.
Those of you follow my blog know that I'm currently having a love affair with vintage and rockabilly style, so I thought it was almost necessaryto do something a little fun and retro-ish to my hair. I've wanted a blonde stripe in my hair for a while, because I think it makes victory rolls and curls look a little more awesome. When I get an idea in my head, it's inevitable that I'm going to go through with it, no matter how ridiculous it looks on paper, and my hair is no exception.
Because I have a mop of thick, dark hair, a lot of hairdressers looked at me like I'm nuts (I am a bit) before promptly turning me away, telling me there's no way they could make me blonde. I was about to give up, when I came across the Ginger Group in Ealing  - a salon staffed by a lovely bunch who seemed positively excited about the prospect of bleaching where no man had dared before.
Cue five and a half hours in the chair, 3 magazines, 2 cups of coffee and 1 determined hairdresser and this is the result:

To be honest, I was a bit freaked out at first, but it's definitely growing on me (quite literally, sorry) and I like the fact that it's a little different to your typical highlights. I'm excited to play around with it and try out some victory rolls and pin curls.
P.S. My lovely sister got me Ruby Woo by MAC for Christmas, so thought I should take this opportunity to show that off too. It may just be the perfect red lipstick...


Thanks for reading :)

Your friendly neighbourhood insomniac...

Pretty Polly + House of Holland Tights: Roadtested

A few weeks back I did a post on the insanely sassy House of Holland for Pretty Polly AW11 collection featuring Jessie J.
Jessie looked so darn amazing in the ad campaigns that I instantly fell in love with the Super Suspenders she's wearing in one of the posters.


Anyway, I felt like it was simply my duty to pick up a pair of these tights from River Island and show you what they look like on a real girl (me) with a real bum and thighs (mine), without the power of photoshop and airbrushing. (not to say Jessie isn't real of course but she is abnormally hot!).

Jessie is wearing the Mesh Super Suspender Tights in the above pic. I bought the regular Super Suspender Tights, which are a little more sheer around the top. Yikes.

Anyway, here's a little looksie at me and my pins :o
*Hope they're not too offensive*





I picked these up for £12 from River Island, but they're currently on offer for £8 direct from Pretty Polly HERE.

These tights are super comfy and quirky and are a great find for vintage lovers like me.
 I think they would look awesome with shorts and Doc Martens :D.

What do you reckon? Fancy taking the plunge with Pretty Polly?


Thanks for reading and hope you've not been scarred for life by my wobbly bits!

Wishful Listing: My Fantasy Christmas Wish List

Besides peace on Earth etc, there are many more unobtainable things I would like this Christmas so I thought it would be fun to put together a little fantasy wish list of shamelessly indulgent and completely unrealistic goodies.


Behold!:


  • Anything that smells edible/ festive by Philosophy.


Philosophy has been my favourite bathing brand for years. I'm a sucker for beauty products with gourmand-esque scents, and Philosophy just do it so well!

I can't walk past this in Boots without giving it a sniff! Philosophy Old Fashioned Eggnog Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath - 14 gbp at Boots

warming + scrub + gingerbread fragrance = Awesome. 26 gbp  (part of a set including gingerbread  man shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath) from QVC UK

Melting Marshmallow including shower gel, body lotion & lip shine. 22 gbp from Boots. I don't think I need to explain my reasoning for adding this. :) 

  • Flowerbomb has been my favourite perfume for years, but everyone I know hates it so much they refuse to buy it for me! This is Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Extreme Eau De Parfum - an amplified version of the sickly sweet original. Pleeeeeeease Santa?!?

67.50 gbp for 50ml at Boots

  • Laura Mercier Creme Brulee Honey Bath. I've owned this before and I'm pretty sure my bathroom needs it again. One of the loveliest bathing products ever in my opinion.

31 gbp at Liberty  and other department stores


  • Essence of John Galliano candle by Diptyque - a compelling oriental blend of white incense, bay leaves, rosewood and 'burnt leather'. I know Galliano isn't exactly in the good books at the moment but this candle is beyond indulgent.

40 gbp from Space NK

  • Some goodies from MAC - including my most coveted lipstick, Ruby Woo. 

Cleanse Off Oil. 7 gbp. I've heard good things about this and would love to make my own judgement.

Lipstick in Ruby Woo. 13.50 gbp. I blog about beauty - I need this. Please. :)

Strobe Cream. 12 gbp. A little luminosity would be most welcome this Christmas.

  • Tigi Bed Head Candy Fixations styling products. I'm happiest when my hair smells good and apparently these products are beautifully scented. If I don't find one (or all) of these under the tree, I'll be clicking over to Feel Unique for a sweet fix.
Left to Right: Sugar Dust micro-texture root powder, 9.35 gbp, Totally Baked volumizing & prepping hair meringue, 10.65 gbp, Sugar Shock hair bodyfying sugar spray, 10.00 gbp.


And finally, (though I could go on):


  • The Luxury Essentials by Creme De La Mer. Decadence personified really...

260 gbp at Selfridges


So there you have it, a depressingly expensive selection of my most lusted after Christmas treats. Who knows, maybe one of them might make it into my stocking this year :o

P.S. sorry about the repetitive use of gbp (great british pounds). I'm using an Australian laptop tonight so therefore don't have a pound symbol on my keyboard!

Lucas' Papaw Ointment

We all know that winter can do various nasty things to our skin and as an Australian, I'm used to living in a climate that rarely drops below 10 degrees - so you can imagine how much my skin freaked out when I experienced my first British winter a few years back.

I was over here with my sister for Christmas in 2008 and after a few days in the face-freezing winds my lips were chapping, my elbows felt a bit like sandpaper and my hands dried out so much that my knuckles even cracked and bled :o

I found my salvation with a cult Australian beauty product -  Lucas Papaw Ointment.

picture of Lucas' Papaw Ointment
Back in Oz this stuff is a handbag fixture thanks to its multitude of uses, neutral scent and exceptionally long shelf life.It can be used on minor cuts and abrasions, burns, rashes and chafing and is perfect for soothing dry skin and flaking lips. It's also great for taming brows or mixing with lipstick to tone down pigment - basically like an inexpensive version of (the very lovely) Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream.


The ointment is made in Brisbane, Australia (where I'm from!) using locally grown and fermented Papaw fruit. It is manufactured using pharmaceutical grade petroleum jelly and absorbs pretty quickly. Scent wise, it has a very slight sweet smell which I find really comforting, probably because I've been using it since I was little.

I felt compelled to write about this ointment because my skin is starting to feel the chill now so I've been reaching for it quite a lot lately. I feel like Boots or Superdrug should really stock this because it's a seriously wonderful product, but in the meantime you can find it online at Amazon. Prices vary but a 75g pot like mine will cost you around 10 pounds. Naturally it is more expensive here in the UK than  Australia, but if you're after something to soothe your skin this winter I think it's worth the investment!

Have you jumped on the Lucas Papaw Ointment wagon yet???

ELF Cosmetics Studio Stipple Brush

When it comes to applying foundation, my fingers have always been my blending tool of choice and I'll freely admit that I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to foundation brushes. I tend to steer clear of many of the nifty make up tools on the market simply because I've never been quite sure how to wield them properly and the only base brush you'll find in my make up kit is a kabuki I stole from my mum! As a beauty blogger, this is a fairly terrifying confession to make but let me assure you that this situation has now been rectified, thanks to the genius that is the Studio Stipple Brush by ELF Cosmetics. 
This brush is one of my first ever purchases from ELF and it's certainly been a great introduction to the brand. Unlike generic foundation brushes I've used in the past, I find this incredibly easy to use with my liquid foundation and it really seems to produce a rather air-brushed effect.
Made for each other: ELF Studio Stipple Brush & Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation

I've found the stippling technique of 'tapping' the foundation on to the skin to be a really quick and highly effective way of achieving a near-flawless base, so I can't really imagine using a different technique now.

The stipple brush isn't the only ELF product I decided to sample - I also snapped up the High Definition Powder. I've wanted a translucent powder for a while so when I saw that this one was up for grabs for only £6 I had to have it.


ELF High Definition Powder

This powder is incredibly soft to the touch, masks lines and imperfections and adds radiance to the face. The perfect finishing touch for my freshly stippled face :)
I'm loving ELF so far, and now I understand why the brand is so popular in the beauty blogging community!I'm so glad I bought the Studio Stipple Brush and I'm pretty sure it's going to be a permanent fixture in my make up bag from now on.

The ELF Studio Stipple Brush is only £3.50, so if you're keen to try stippling there's no reason not to treat yourself :)


Thanks for reading!

Biotherm Skin Ergetic Anti-Fatigue Serum

I'm a little obsessed with serums lately and while I don't want to go overboard on serum related posts, I feel that this product definitely deserves a special mention,

Presenting Skin Ergetic Anti-Fatigue Serum by Biotherm


At first glance, this just looks like your average serum, but I can assure you that it's definitely far from average. The really unique aspect of this potion is that it comes in 2 parts that are combined by you, which makes for a seriously fresh skincare experience. Extracts of Soya and Apple (to increase cellular energy) and Sugarcane and Lime (to gently exfoliate and enhance radiance) are the active ingredients in one of the components, while Broccoli extract is the star ingredient of the other.

So how does it work?
When you open the box, you'll come across the glass bottle filled with liquid (as pictured above) and a silver sachet that looks a bit like something you'd find at a space station.
Zip it open, and inside you'll find a little white capsule.
This mysterious little customer contains 'sulforaphane-rich'broccoli extract in the form of bright yellow powder. In case you were wondering, sulforaphane is a compound that works on defending the skin as it stimulates the production of detoxifying and antioxidant enzymes. Each little capsule contains approx 150 broccoli sprouts :o

Once the capsule has been removed, you then unscrew the dropper from the serum bottle and screw the capsule on in its place.

Then you simply press down on the top of the capsule until it clicks...

...releasing the powder into the serum. Hurrah!

Then it's just a matter of replacing the dropper top and giving the bottle a jolly good shake to combine the ingredients.....
...then waiting 24 hours to ensure the powder dissolves properly.
I haven't photographed it, but there's actually a section on the side of the label where you can write the date you mixed the two components together. This is a good idea because the mixture is only active within a 3 month period, because the aformentioned Sulforaphane has a limited shelflife when suspended in liqud. A very fresh concept indeed!



The end result is a milky, gel like serum with a rather fresh fruity scent. It smells a lot like apples and a bit like broccoli, and i find it a real pleasure to use. Skin experts Biotherm claim that this serum will make you look more awake and radiant with a smoother complexion.
I've only been using it (morning and night) since last monday so I can't comment on the end result just yet, but I'm loving it so far. The texture of my skin is distinctly softer and smoother and my foundation seems to be smoothing on more easily.
The serum is available on Amazon.
Have you tried Biotherm Skin Ergetic Anti-Fatigue Serum? What do you think of the 'click, mix, apply' concept?

Thanks for reading!

Lipstick I Love: Collection Volume Sensation Lipstick

Hello beautiful people! Now I know that I recently featured this lipstick in a recent post but I've become so impressed with it I thought it deserved a post of its own!

I'm an avid believer in the power of the red lip and have been sporting one at work everyday in an effort to appear at least a little bit groomed and ladylike. I work in a well known indpendent book shop and one of the lovely things about my job is that we don't really have a dress code so we're free to express our personal style (to a degree of course!) so I like to do strange things with my hair and wear fabulous lipstick. I switch between shades and brands but in the past week something strange has happened - three different customers have complimented me on my lipstick and each time I've been wearing the same one - Collection 2000 Volume Sensation Lipstick in Cherry Pop. Two very nice ladies asked me where they could find it and were gobsmacked when I told them it was £2.99 at Boots or Superdrug :)

I've found it to be a really wearable colour - Cherry Pop is vibrant, densely pigmented and Christmas perfect. On top of this, it sort of stains my lips a bit, and is quite difficult to wipe off, surely a good thing when lipstick is concerned?



in the tube...

on my lips :o
I put it on before I leave the house and usually don't need to re-apply until my break, especially if I've put a cheeky layer of Lipcote over the top.

Cherry Pop is my pick, but it's also available in the following shades: Forever Heather, Perfect Pink, Ruby Red, Plum Perfection, Pretty Please, Sugar Pink, Hot Chocolate, Grape Glitz, Sea Shell and Peachy Keen.

P.S. Next on my Collection 2000 to-try list? Cream Puff lip creams - the name alone has caught the attention of my very sweet tooth :)

Skincare Gets Personal

So we all know that no two skins are the same and when it comes to the epidermis, we've all got our issues. Dehydration, breakouts, smile lines, crows feet, oily in bits, dry in parts, flakey on the cheeks, spotty on the chin, I could go on but I'll spare you. :)

Today I was introduced to something created on the basis that our complexions are as unique as we are - a personalised skincare system called Forest Secrets.



Forest Secrets Try Me Set
Of course there are already loads of great products on the market that are tailored to individual beauty concerns, but Forest Secrets is particularly interesting for a few good reasons:
  1. There are only 3 (very concentrated) serums/elixirs in the line which are mixed together according to your skin needs.
  2. It's up to you to combine the products yourself. You can't get more personalised than that!
  3. The products are 100% natural, GMO free and vegan

The Serums

iRejuvenate PLUS Elixir
Containing Lupin Seed extract for elasticity and collagen promotion, Organic Argan Oil for nourishment and antibacterial Honeysuckle extract, this face oil is easily absorbed and light. Used in conjunction with the iRejuvenate PLUS Serum, the elixir forms one half of the iRejuvenate PLUS anti-ageing system. 

iRejuvenate PLUS Serum
So this serum is the second half of the anti-ageing system, and contains Chlorella Extract which fights collagen deconstruction, radiance encouraging Monk's Pepper and plant derived Kinetin to improve texture.

iBright Serum
This serum is designed to tackle skin pigmentation and contains the extract of the very rare and rather expensive Matsutake mushroom. The mushroom was used in ancient China as a means of brightening the complexion and preventing/ treating discolouration.


The serums/elixir are housed in very cute glass bottles with pipettes.

Forest Secrets personalised skincare consists of 2 core systems: Anti-Ageing and Anti-Blemish.
The Anti-Ageing system consists of the iRejuvenate PLUS Elixir and Serum, while the Anti-Blemish system includes the iRejuvenate Plus Elixir and iBright Serum. Each product comes in 15ml bottles.

A great way to discover the system is to go for the Try Me Set containing all 3 products in little 2ml bottles. This way you can find out which serum combinations work the best for you.
The products come with 'recipe' suggestions according to your skin concerns. For example, here is the suggestion for combination skin:

Morning: For the face and neck, mix one drop of the iRejuvenate Plus Elixir with two drops of iRejuvenate Plus Serum and apply to the skin. For the “T” Zone (the forehead and nose area) use one drop of iRejuvenate Plus Serum.Night: Blend 1 drop of iRejuvenate Plus Elixir and three to four drops of iRejuvenate Plus Serum and apply to the face and neck area.

It's way too early to tell you if this range works for me but I wanted to share it because I think it's a really cool concept. I love the ritualistic feel to Forest Secrets, it just adds that bit more to that little pampering buzz I get from using gorgeous skin products. The serums have a light, sort of velvet texture, while the elixir is more oily and nourishing. Did I mention how lovely the products smell too? Beautiful!

The Anti-Ageing and Anti-Blemish systems retail for £70 (for two 15ml bottles) while the Try Me Set is £15. You can also purchase the products individually for £35. The products are very highly concentrated so a 15ml bottle should last you up to 6 months.

To discover more about Forest Secrets or to try out the products yourself, visit their website here.

Have you tried Forest Secrets? I'd love to hear you thoughts :)

Review: A Very Yummy Face Treat

My skin has really been feeling the wrath of the Autumnal climate lately, so you can imagine my delight when beauty gurus Montagne Jeunesse asked me if I wanted to review their latest offering - the ultra hydrating Very Berry Face Masque.


This masque is packed with skin loving natural ingredients including antioxidant rich cranberries and blueberries, nourishing peach kernel oil and soothing Aloe. I thought it sounded amazing, so naturally I couldn't wait to get it out of the sachet and on to my face!

Cranberries contain Omega 3, 6 and 9 to fight premature aging, while mood-boosting blueberries are extremely high in vitamins and  great at clearing blemishes, so this masque is perfect for combination skin like mine.

The first thing I noticed when I opened the packaging was the scent - it smelled exactly as I'd imagined it would - really fruity and sweet. The product is a blue/purple colour and the texture is very thick and creamy and I found it really easy to apply as it smoothes onto the skin like a dream.

The masque works the same as most - cleanse, apply over face and neck, chill out for 10 minutes, rinse. Unless you're me, in which case you cleanse, apply over face and neck, act like a moron in front of a camera for 10 minutes, rinse.


 Oh dear...
As you can see above, it's best not to answer the door/ be seen in public while the masque works its magic.

How did it feel on my face? A little cold, even slightly tingly initially, but after a while I actual forgot I had it on. It doesn't dry (I can't use masques that do as my skin is too sensitive), so it just feels like a rather thick layer of nourishing face cream. Overall, it felt really nice and soothing on my face.

How did my face feel after I rinsed it off? I used a muslin cloth and warm water to remove every trace of the masque and I'm happy to report that my skin felt really nice - nourished and more 'plump'. It also felt really smooth, with no uncomfortable tightness and I felt clean and refreshed but also totally nourished.

I applied my night serum immediately after rinsing and drying my face, followed by Creme de la Mer and I'm really happy with the results. My face feels soft and hydrated - almost like I've just indulged in an expensive facial at a spa.

This delicious masque is the perfect remedy for winter-dry skin and is an absolute steal for around £1. Got to love a little affordable luxury :)

The new Montagne Jeunesse Very Berry Face Masque retails from £1.01 and is now
 available at ASDA, Boots, Clare’s, New Look, Savers, and of course http://www.montagnejeunesse.com/

Just Off To Powder My Hair....

I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to powder styling products for your tresses. This is probably for 3 reasons:
  1. I thought they probably wouldn't do what they claim to
  2. I was naturally a bit sceptical about shaking something white and dry onto my black hair
  3. I just didn't get it
I have used dry shampoo in the past and I hated it - I can't remember the brand (think it was Batiste) but it left my scalp itchy beyond belief! I know many people swear by dry shampoo, but I'm not one of them, which probably added to my reservations about powder styling products!
In the past month however, I have not only taken the hair powder plunge for the first time, but also managed to aquire 2 very similar products in the process.

Boots had a 2 for £6 deal (I think) on Tresemme a few weeks ago, and because I am on an eternal quest for bigger hair, I took advantage of the offer and snapped up 2 products from the new 24 Hour Body collection - the Finishing Spray and the Sky High Plumping Powder.

Then about a week after I made the Tresemme purchase, my monthly beauty box from Feel Unique arrived, including a full sized Osis Dust It Mattifying Powder!


So then I was faced with 2 products I'd never used before...and I was equally afraid of both.
What to do?
What any self respecting beauty blogger would do of course - figure out how to use them, then decide which one I prefer!
Both of these products feel the same, look the same and claim to do the same thing - give quick and easy (and considerable) lift and volume when dusted on and massaged in.
 This was going to be a tough one.
Tresemme

Osis
I tested these products over two days, washing my hair in between tests, and this is what I found:
Both powders have a really weird, dry texture that sort of absorbs all the moisture out of your hand.
In terms of fragrance, Osis doesn't really smell like anything, while Tresemme has a really nice clean, shampoo type scent.
To use, I tapped the powder directly onto the roots, massaging and messing up as I went.

Both these products gave really impressive results and it was a genuine surprise to use something that does exactly what it says on the packet. Hurrah!

They really lifted my hair from the roots, provided great volume and had pretty good staying power in terms of hold. I've used these powders to create a lightly backcombed look, a bouffant ponytail style and to provide hold for some faux victory rolls I wore to work the other day.
The white powder didn't turn my hair grey at all, and I found both these products were great for re-styling throughout the day -the powder seemed to stay put even when my style had fallen a little flat, so I just used my hands to give it some oomph again. Easy!

Even though they're quite similar, my favourite is definitely the Tresemme Sky High Plumping Powder - it just has a really nice scent and I found it delivered slightly longer hold.
I love!
Osis Dust It retails for £9.55 for 10g from Feel Unique while Tresemme Plumping Powder is available at Boots for £5.50 for 10g. Both are really good products, but I'll be sticking with Tresemme for the scent and the price tag :)

Have you tried hair powder volumising products? I would love to know about any other brands who do them. :)

Thanks for reading!

Pin-Up For a Day? Yes Please!


As you may have gathered, I have a growing infatuation with vintage beauty.
When I say vintage, I mean the unrivalled glamour of pin-up sirens and Hollywood darlings from my 3 favourite beauty decades - the 1940's, 50's and 60's.

Think Rita Hayworth with those tumbling curls, Veronica Lake with her sultry stare and the girl-next-door smile of Betty Grable. Gorgeous!

I've previously blogged about the stunning work of vintage make up and styling experts Lipstick & Curls, but today I'm going to tell you about how you can take the experience once step further - with your very own pin-up photoshoot!


In collaboration with leading international pin-up photographer Rocco Rolls, Lipstick & Curls run regular studio sessions so ladies can indulge in vintage fabulousness and discover their inner pin-up cutie!

These ladies are true experts, and photographer Rocco has been featured in magazines including Harper's Bazaar and Vogue, so you're guaranteed a truly wonderful experience with fantastic results.

Just look at this!





The Lipstick & Curls girls provide a complete vintage makeover including the hair and make up that's perfect for your pin-up shoot. It's up to you to decide the kind of pin-up goddess you want to be, whether that's a Mad Men inspired glamazon, a flirty Marilyn-esque vixen or a cheeky bondage beauty a'la Bettie Page, the girls will work their magic to make you the best pin-up Queen you can be. The know-how of the Lipstick & Curls girls, coupled with the expertise of Rocco Rolls means you'll be guaranteed photographs that are unique, professional, and above all, absolutely gorgeous!
The pin-up photography sessions are private and the girls will make sure you feel comfortable and confident as you blossom into the vintage beauty you were always meant to be. Upon booking you are asked to bring along four different outfits, so you will feel at ease in your own lingerie or two piece, but  all props are provided to ensure an authentic vintage vibe and you'll even be given professional posing tips :)


The next Lipstick & Curls pin-up studio session takes place on the 10th of  December, so if you're interested, make sure you get in quick so you don't miss out on securing your place!

So, the big question - how much does this cost?

The whole session, including four prints of your choice (A3 12x16 inches or A3 + 12x18 inches) is priced at £250.

Here's a break down of what you'll receive for the cost:

·  A complete vintage makeover from the Lipstick & Curls experts
·      A photo-shoot with leading international pin-up photographer Rocco Rolls
·      The use of an extensive props collection
·      Direction and advice on posing and getting the look.
·      Four photographs of your choice  A3 12x16inches or A3+ 12x18 inches
*To enquire about group shots, additional prints etc, drop the girls an email and they'll be happy to help.

I think this is a pretty good deal personally as it's one cost up front. A lot of 'makeover and photography' studios lure customers in with an unbelievably low session cost, then charge extortianate amounts for the photographs at the end!
 With this Lipstick & Curls pin-up session, you get a unique and glamorous experience with no hidden costs - and for this, I commend them!

I think I know what I want for Christmas...

To book please email info@lipstickandcurls.co.uk or call Amanda on 0787 907 6449
or Natasha on 0776 5166 460
