How To Styling a Ballerina Bun

Steps :
  • 1 : If your hair is straight, curl the ends with a curling iron. This prevents little hairs from poking out of your bun!
  • 2 : Gather your hair into a ponytail on top of your head.
  • 3 : Pull your hair through one last time, but only half way! Take the loop you’ve created and spread it out.
  • 4 : Take the end of your ponytail and wrap it around the base of the bun.
  • 5 : Secure with bobby pins.
  • 6 : Finish with hair spray! See, that wasn’t so hard!

Chalked Crown Hair

Steps :
  • 1 : Starting with a side part, french braid the side with more hair. Keep the french braid against your head until you've reached the ear, then continue the braid away from the head.
  • 2 : Braid the other side in a loose braid starting at ear height (leave some hair down below the braid to hang over your ears).
  • 3 : Pull the braid across the front of your head and pin it in to the french braid so that it is secure across your forehead like a head band (tuck the ends of the braid into the french braid to make it look like one continued braid around the head).
  • 4 : Pull the french braid around the back of the head and pin it in to the opposite braid.
  • 5 : Use different colours of Kevin Murphy Color Bugs or any hair chalk to add colour to the braided crown!

Curly Hair With Paper Towels

How To :
- You basically wash and comb your hair.
- Cut the paper towel into two inch strips and roll the hair onto it like you would a curler.
- Then you pick up sections of hair, the smaller the section the more curl you will get.
- Tie the ends of the paper towel tight so it holds all night.
- Go to bed. In the morning you unwrap the hair and voila!! beautiful curls.

How to Pack Smart for a Trip



How to Pack Smart for a Trip





Small (Bra/Undies)
     
Keep everything natural nude so it will work under all clothes, 
Even if you have a white top it's always best to wear a nude bra as it's less likely to be seen. 

           Multiway bras are always super handy to pack!



Clothes

Pick a colour scheme and stick to it.


Pick items that all match so you can vary your outfit without over packing,

I stick to these rules:
Black                or           Brown
Red               or           Pink

I never pick a brown top if I pack black shoe, or a red top with a pink jacket

My colour scheme is usually 
Blacks, 
Greys, 
and a pop of colour usually Pink or Red.
But hey that's just me!

Get Easy And Sexy Beach Waves

How To Style :
  • Step 1 : Start with slightly damp or naturally dried hair. Then Divide the hair into three sections: One on top, two on the bottom. Pin up the top section on top of your head.
  • Step 2 : Now, in each section, start working with smaller 3-inch chunks at a time.
  • Step 3 : Spray the Ocean Mist on each sub-section, making sure not to saturate the hair. Then Gather the sprayed section in your hand in an S-shape.
  • Step 4 : Scrunch the coiled hair slightly as you heat it with a dryer.
  • Step 5 : Intensify the new wave shape where needed with a straightener, making sure to follow the direction of the wave.
  • Step 6 : Finish it off with the Medium-Hold Hairspray and some Straight and Shine Spray on top to give the look gloss.

Make an Old Hollywood Waves For Your Hair

Steps :
  • 1 : Begin with dry hair parted to the side. Prep hair with a thermal protectant like Hot Off The Press by Paul Mitchell.
  • 2 : Curl all of your hair in one direction using a one-inch curling wand. The side with the heavier part will curl towards your face and the other side will curl away from your face. Uniform curls are key to this style! The size of your sections and the way your curl each one should be consistent.
  • 3 : Brush through your curls when they have cooled with a boar bristle brush to make them blend together and form a wave .
  • 4 : With a comb right under each wave ridge, comb upwards to make the ridge more prominent.
  • 5 : Set with your favorite hairspray.

Make a Roll and Twist Side Ponytail

How To Style :
  • Step 1 : Spray some texturizer into your hair to give it hold. Next, grab a section of hair from the front left (or right) side of your head and pull it across the back of your head. Secure in place with a bobby pin.
  • Step 2 : Take a piece of hair from the base of your neck and tuck it over the first piece of hair. Secure with another pin.
  • Step 3 : Continue to take pieces from the base of your neck and tuck them into the roll. Continue using pins to ensure a good hold.
  • Step 4 : Once you’ve reached the opposite side of your head, pull the majority of your hair into a ponytail right by your ear and tie with an elastic.
  • Step 5 : Take the remaining free section and pull it next to your ear and underneath the base of the pony. Wrap it over the top and around again until there’s virtually no hair left.
  • Step 6 : Secure the remaining end of the loose strand under the pony with a bobby pin to keep it hidden.

I have podophobia



Micro-Pedi




Not something I like to admit but....*whisper* I have horrible feet.

I have podophobia: A fear of feet!

I hate feet, even the word Feet or Foot turns my stomach, I think this is because ever since I can remember I have had dry horrid feet. 
I even remember going to the doctor about it as a kid!

I have tried everything to get smooth feet,
scrubs, lotions, potions, files everything!! 

(If you want a review on products that I have tired before, let me know)

So I had to review this because in my option this is AWESOME!
Best thing I have EVER tried hands down (or should I say feets up) 
I finally have smooth feet with very little effort at all!! 


  
Pop two AA batteries in 
(not included by the way)

Press the button so it starts to rotate....

Run it over the foot Never hold for more then 2 seconds in the same spot

You'll see the flakes fall away...
Do it over a bin or towel, its gross lol





AND DONE SMOOTH FEET!!

It is pretty expensive at around €50 but I have spent more on stuff that hasn't worked so taking that into account it's not bad and at least it really works. 

I have been going around showing everyone my feet and with my podophobia that's HUGE for me!

All in all I love it!

I just don't know!!



Vichy Normaderm 
Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care


This is gonna be a very mixed review, 
I dunno where to start with it one....

I guess I will start with WHY I bought this. Vichy claim this moisturiser is for "imperfection-prone skin, to help with redness, shine, scarring and uneven texture." All issues I have. My skin is prone to breaking out but I have to be careful what I use on it, as it can become very dry if I use the typical "Acne" type products. 

This product includes Salicylic Acid, Glycolic Acid and LHA. This combination creates a peeling action penetrating the deep layers of the skin. "Treating from within"


So that's what it claims but what does it actually do...


Pros 
  • It does seem to treat blemishes on the face, I feel a tingling feeling for a few second on the areas that I have blemishes and acne scars. 


  • It hasn't affected my dry skin patches. Keeping them comfortably moisturised.




Cons  

  • Doesn't seem to sink into the skin, it sits on top of my skin making it feel greasy.  


  • I didn't notice my pores on my nose and cheeks were any smaller.


  • The packaging makes you think you have lots left, so its hard to judge when you need more.

  • Its expensive!!

  • Does NOT work as a makeup base! Unless you like it melting off in a few minutes!



I honestly cannot decide what to do about this! 
Should I get it again...What do you think??

Love, a very confused Sinead :/

Best Mascara Ever! NO MORE!


I love this MASCARA! 

If you follow my videos and my Friday favourites videos then you will know that I love Maybelline one by one "waterproof" mascara!

but for those of you who don't here is the reasons why this is...



THE BEST MASCARA EVER!

Lets break it down into points!
  1. The wand grabs hold of each lash and as it combs through, each one gets a generous amount of product.
  2. It creates length and volume without the clumps!
  3. Its build-able and each layer brings you closer and closer to that fake lash effect! 
  4. The black shade is a true black, no grey here!
  5. Its waterproof!
  6. Once you apply it to curled lashes and lashes STAY curled all day! Prefect for that doll eyed look!



The down side! :(

Its becoming harder and harder to find which leads me to believe that it IS being discontinued after months of speculation!! 

However on a brighter note Maybelline have launch the new
Volum' Express The Rocket Mascara

With very similar claims and packaging...





here's hoping its just as good!! 
I am off to Boots to give one ago and I will post my thoughts on my blog soon!!


Much love Sinead xx
