Following the call of the disco ball this weekend, we went back to the 70s and created some retro looks with fantastic clothing and accessories from The Closet – Vintage Aberdeen.
I’ve heard lots of good things about Nip+Fab’s range, so when a colleague mentioned that Superdrug are currently offering half price on their products, I couldn’t resist trying some out!
So January is here again and yet again I found myself over indulging during the festive period (will I ever learn?! 🙈). This year is a big one for me and with a wedding in December, I want to start making some healthy lifestyle changes – so that I can avoid a last minute crash diet, but still look my best come The Big Day 👰🏼
If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you might remember that last year I signed up to Results with Lucy, which was good (you can read more HERE) however there were points where I felt a real lack of food made it difficult to keep it going on a long term basis.
With this in mind, I was slightly dubious about signing up to another ‘meal plan’, but after receiving an email from Food for Fitness inviting me to join their first 30 day fat loss challenge, it drew me in…
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! 😀)
Happy Halloween Everyone!!! I hope you all enjoyed a spooky weekend – I’ve loved seeing everyone’s fancy dress efforts on Instagram and Twitter 👻
I had a lot of comments on my DIY Unicorn costume, so thought I’d post a step by step guide for you to follow. It might be a little late to for your trick or treat costume this year – but you don’t always need an excuse to dress up as a unicorn (right?!) 😜
Everyone loves a bit of snapchat action, so if you’re looking for some inspiration this Halloween, why not try looking at some of the filters. Whether it’s classics such as the dog face or floral headband – or newer ones such as the dear or diamond glasses, there’s plenty to get creative with.
You might have read my previous post (Lucy Bee Intensive Hair Mask) where I put Lucy Bee’s Natural Beauty Book to the test and made an intensive hair treatment for my coloured hair…with mixed results! In this post I mentioned how a Cacao Face Mask also took my fancy and I finally got round to making it.
