Funky Tights....I applaud you!!!

Brrrrr! It's definitely getting colder now!
With winter just on the doorstep,(even closer in Scotland lol) It's time to layer up girlies!

Now I don't know about you guys but I'm not a trousers kinda gal and the thought of bare legs in the snow just ain't happening, so it's time to get the funky tights on the go!

Unfortunately this picture doesn't show the black spots on the tights but they go from the feet up. I bought these from Primark, which Is fab for cheap, cheerful and warm!

If you really want to push the boat out and go crazy it has to be ebay shop Refuse To Be Usual!

Winter detox a good idea???

A few days ago one of the beauty therapists at the salon convinced me to have a facial for the very first time....now I have to say that I wasn't expecting much but anyway, I went for it.
She recommended the micro dermabrasson facial as I have a few scars from acne that I had as a teenager. This involves using this machine to 'shoot' tiny crystals at the skin and 'sucking' them (and any dirt etc) back up.
Kinda feels like having someone hoover your face lol.

I have to say my skin feels AMAZING!!!!
It gave me the push to start looking after my skin. So I started with my skin care routine(Which is non-existent at the moment lol)
Harriet (The beauty therapist) used Dermalogica products on me which I'd need to rob a bank to buy! But fear not I came across  http://www.adonisgrooming.com which offer starter packs like these....




normal-oily




For only £16.55!!!! :D

I'd also heard that drinking green tea is great for detoxing the body so about 3 days ago I started.
Now I don't know If any of you guys have been on a detox before but basically you normally end up breaking out in spots and/or having a cold before it gets better as all the crap is coming out of your system.
Guess what I woke up today?
Yip ..... a right nasty cold!!! :(
I'm so tempted to give up but I'm determined not to!

With that In mind I thought a wee spot of retail therapy would be perfect to take my mind off it!
I came across http://kawaiigoods.com/ 
This site is FULL of loads of lovely, handmade kawaii goodies to die for! 
Here's two of the things I bought.......

I also bought a Harajuku inspired strawberry clip but I couldn't find a picture after I bought it sorry!
I'll pop a wee review up to let you guys know what the quality etc of these products are when they arrive.

Halloween!!!

It's that time of year again and I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited!!!

I only decided yesterday that I was actually going to go out at the weekend so It's been a bit of a rush to decide what to go as and get an outfit together.....In the end I've decided to go as a vampire!
I've still got alot of work to do on the outfit but I was totally delighted when I came across this....





I love Michelle Phan!
I'm so glad to have come across this. So I bought the fangs, ordered some contact lenses and thought I'd have a wee try for myself.......

I decided to go for white loose powder rather than nude colour to make me paler and I also don't own any dark lipstick so I think I'll grab some tomorrow on my lunch.

I'm still toying with the idea of fake lashes though.....I know Michelle doesn't use any but I love them. I think I'll wait till my contacts arrive and see how they look first.  :D

What a day!

Well guys today has been a mad one!
Busy day at the salon as usual!

Went off to view a venue for the next photo shoot I'm organising, which is bloody difficult in Inverness!lol
Merckinch Community Centre was fab!With four different halls to choose from I was a bit spoilt for choice. Although It felt a bit alien trying to explain how the day would work to Rose (The wee old wifie at reception). I think she thought we were planning a rave the way she questioned me. Ha ha!

Out of all the rooms I think I prefer this one ....

I thick curtains will be great for keeping out the light for Jodie our photographer/make up artist :)
Just got to wait for Rose to e-mail me with a price before I do any planning though.

As for the rest of today, I was feeling I an uber girlie mood! So what better way to express this than with my clobber??

Hurrah!

Well it's happened I've finally entered the world of blogging!


Well I have to say I'm a little peeved today!
I love ebay but today I've had my 1st EVER bad experiance....
I bought this lovely playsuit from this seller and when it arrived the zip was broken so I sent it back.
Then I got a nasty e-mail saying I wouldn't get a refund due to the fact that the tags had been taken off(I must have caught them or something), so I apologised and can understand why I couldn't get a full refund but could the zip be fixed.

Now I thought this was a pretty reasonable response......This is what she sent back to me....



"No to be honest i dont think the zip as broken! i check these things thoroughly before sending and as you can see on the picture the zip is up and is not broken with all the teeth missing how you sent it back. also too long has passed now 21days has passed now since you ordered it and its a bit ridiculous you not coming back to my messgaes after so long so sorry the answer is no. i am happy to send it back to you for £3.99 if you want it back."

Total shock! What has happened to customer service? Being self employed myself I know the importance of customer service and the next few messages I got from her were(From a business point of view)disgusting!
She then went on to say that she thought I'd actually wore this item and broke it! Did I magically expand??? LOL
Charming!
