I absolutely love getting my hair put up and although I can make a good effort myself, nothing beats getting it tackled and tamed by a pro! One thing that stops me getting my hair done before an event/wedding though, is the amount of time that I need to factor in to what usually is usually an already tightly planned schedule!!
This is where Toni & Guy’s Fashion Fix is a dream 😍! Going to your appointment with pre washed and dried hair, means that once you pick from the below Fashion Fix styles, you can be out and looking fab in 30 mins.
I’ve made no secret of my love for Primark’s false nails over on my Instagram (if we’re not following each other, click HERE and let’s be Insta friends 😀), so thought they deserved a wee shout on the blog.
At £1, you can’t really go wrong with these bad boys. They do them in a couple of different shapes, catering to individual styles and preferences, but my fav are def the Almond range. Giving a bit of length and a soft shape – they’re ideal for day and night use.
This sunny weather has got me in great mood and I’ve decided to do a giveaway over on my Twitter!
If you fancy getting your hands on all 10 of these fab NailsInc Magnetic Polish, all you have to do is head over to my Twitter Page, RT my pinned post and Follow! Simple!! 😀
The giveaway has 10 different coloured polishes, so there’s plenty for you to choose from!
After getting back my holiday and sending a picture of a sparkly new addition to my finger, after the initial ‘oooohs’ and ‘aaaaahs’ from family and friends, I was hit with a resounding ‘now you need to get your nails done’!
I’m a terrible nail biter, so I felt my short little nails could also do with a bit of elongating. Having never had any form of gel polish before, I was a little hesitant on what to go for – gel or acrylic? I also struggled on where to go. Sure there are plenty of nail salons in Aberdeen, but I’d heard some horror nail stories and didn’t want to end up with wrecked or super broken nails after.
Upon recommendation, I got in touch with Linton and Mac who were great at giving me advice over the phone, telling me the differences between acrylics and gel extensions. Opting for the gel (a lesser evil on nail damage compared to acrylics – apparently!) I booked my appointment and headed along.
Kayleigh was also so good at letting me know the process and was lovely chatting with her through the 1hr 15 appointment. With a great selection of colours, I opted for this festive red.
Advising that the nails usually last 2-3 weeks before needing infills (or removal), I left the salon admiring my talons!
I love love love my longer nails, if only I could grow my nails this long in real life (and save me from the £45 bill! 😀)
I recently took the plunge and went to the dark (brunette) side!! After spending years highlighting my hair, this was a big step for me…but I LOVE it!!
The only problem was, with such a light colour before, it was fading too quickly!
This is where JOHN FRIEDA came to the rescue… Continue reading

The nail designs below are all really easy to follow and take next to no time to do). My nail art skills are limited (especially when it comes to using my left hand!) so some of the lines aren’t perfect….but hey – it adds a bit of character! 😀 Continue reading
