A Crowning glory

Have you ever walked in to a store for some shampoo and been bombarded with 20 different types?
Some people, like me have hair that can fit in to a few categories. I have greasy yet fine hair that can get dry at the ends. Do I go for a moisturising shampoo or one to add volume?
This problem has been solved by the clever Liz Earle!
200ml tubeA shampoo that suits all!
I would think, like me your first reaction would be...nope won't work for me! Well I was kindly sent some to review. For a all natural shampoo the foam was amazing, a little bit of shampoo with plenty of water produced a mass of fragrant bubbles. It rinsed clean and I was hesitant to follow with conditioner, but I did out of routine. After drying my hair my brush just slid through with no knots to contend with. My hair was in no way lank, at this a sigh of relief let slip. My hair was shiny and clean all day and my FiancĂ© commented on the lovely herby, organic smell.
As a one for all shampoo this is amazing, I will buying a bottle to give to my sister in law who has opposite hair to me just to see the results.
One little tip I would like to share is if you feel like you need more shampoo try adding a little water instead as this will activate the foam and you will use less shampoo!

200ml tubeI also tried the conditioner. Same gorgeous smell and it conditioned without weighing down my hair.
Unlike the shampoo the conditioner comes in 3 choices ,dry and damaged, oily and one for normal hair and with a hair care set just to make one choice is fab.
There are so many beautiful ingredients in theses shampoos and conditioners it would take ages to write them all down, lets just say each one works a little bit of magic.

Both shampoo and conditioner come in at   £7.65 each, great value

Leighton Denny nail Angel or nail God?

I have watched Leighton Denny on QVC for what feels like forever. When ever his show come's on tv it is like a private consultation with Leighton, so leave me alone lol
Apart from being a cheeky chappy you can tell that Leighton is really passionate about what he does and also really genuinely cares about his customers. This has led me to this post.

I have always painted my toe nails, going for deep vibrant colours but I have never had the confidence to paint my finger nails. When ever I have tried before the polish was streaky and took 4 coats that of course smudged before they were dry. Or they chipped within a day....I hate that!!
Any way recently I have had to take a lot more care in the appearance of my nails. Having just gotten engaged I didn't want to feel self concious when showing off the rock.
After forever watching Leighton I felt I could trust his brand and took the plunge for the second time in a month lol

I bought the French fascination set, it has every thing to start off a fab collection

As you can see the set is mainly for French tips but don't let it fool you there are so many looks to be had. As you can see there is  Amazing Grey, a shade that can be worn sheer or full coverage and also included is Cascade, a clearish top coat with the best sparkle ever.

I attempted a French manicure first, I did not hold out much hope because last time I went near white polish more ended up on my skin than nails!

Look at the results!!
All thanks to Precision Corrector!
Use the little brush and Corrector to make a clear edge to the tips. 

Amazing!!Leighton is a nail God!

The polishes are easy to apply, go on even and last forever!!
Next time I am totally going to go for Amazing Grey with a coat of cascade

I am going to be buying even more collections I just know it, but shhhh don't tell the hubby 2b lol

Thanks Leighton it was worth the wait!
Verdict... Nail God!!!!

A little update, 5 days on the polish is still going strong, not a chip in sight!!

Friday, 11 February 2011's in the bag!

Forgive me blog world for I have sinned, it has been at least 3 weeks since my last post!
A lot has happened in the past three weeks that has taken my attention away from my now neglected blog.
I have gotten engaged! So I have been immersed in excitement and girly planning and of course a new diet...I must not be a fatty bum bum bride lol And I have been to hospital a few times.
Anyway getting back to the point, I was sent some great eye shadow duo's a while ago from Accessorize.
I love their bags but I did not know that they did make up. Well it turns out that I have been missing out... big time!
Please be kind, my first go at my own Photos

On the left is a nice very pale Vanilla shade with hints of gold partnered with a nice Sage green, again shot through with gold.

This is the set that I have found that I have worn the most as it is softer than the set on the right.
I wonder if the guys at Accessorize are Prince fans as they have named this striking duo Purple Reign!

The wear of these shadows are great, there is not fall out and they blend like a dream. I bet that you could get really creative with these. Purple reign would look great used wet as a liner. My hand is not steady enough for this so I will leave it up to you to create looks.

Top no flash, bottom with flash
The best thing about these are that they are only £4... bargain!

Grab yours from Accessorize and Superdrug.
