Live Laugh Carnival by OPI

Hello lovelies, spring is very much apon us and to celebrate I'm busting out the brights! This has got to be my favourite coral polish to date! It is from the new Brazil collection from OPI and its called Live Laugh Carnival. This is going to look fabulous with a tan and electric on toes! I love this colour and will most probably wear it from now till the end of summer! OPI always comes out with wonderful  collections. I think it is one of the best brands for nail polish. I find it so easy to apply, two coats and away you go.You can purchase OPI polishes pretty much anywhere, I got mine from John Lewis for £11.95. I would say that's quite expensive for a nail polish, but the quality is second to none.
What is your go to polish at the moment?

Sunday's FOTD

Hello lovelies. It was the most glorious sunny day yesterday so me and the bf decided to go for a pub lunch by the river. I was feeling summery so decided to bust out the bronze! This is one of my favourite looks in the summertime. It's so easy but looks so effortless and you don't feel like you are caked in makeup. It feels light and fresh, perfect for a day in the sun. I find a coppery eye paired with bubblegum pink lips such a complimentary combination.

Benefit Gimme Brow Review

Hello lovelies. So I caved and bought this after one of the lovely girls at Benefit tried it on me. She said I would love it and I do. You know how new things always get hyped up so much you get put off, well I didn't think this teeny weeny product would do much but I was wrong! This stuff is amazing! Gimme Brow is a brow volumizing fibre gel. The buildable micro fibres attach themselves to your eyebrow hairs creating a much fuller brow. It basically cuts out the need for filling in eyebrows with pencils or powders. It does it all in one quick application. Now I have Brow Zings and love it, but sometimes I just don't have time in the mornings to apply it, Gimme Brow takes half the time and gives the same effect if not better! It comes in two shades, light medium and medium dark. I got the light medium which is perfect for me.
How it works: sweep it back and forth through your brows starting at the outer end to create an instant filled in brow. The tiny brush gives the most precise application. It's that easy! Gimme Brow is waterproof and smudge proof! This is a summertime essential for natural, groomed brows in seconds. Gimme Brow retails at around £15.50 which I think is pretty pricey for such a minuscule product and I wonder how long this will actually last if used on a daily basis. All in all I like what it does to my brows.
What do you do to your brows?

Thank you for reading :)

Hair Care Essentials For Fine Limp Locks

Hello lovelies. Today I wanted to share with you my three must have products to boost lifeless hair.
I have baby fine hair that is highlighted. If I don't put any product in my hair, it will just look like a limp mop!
I have found these three beauties to cover all bases. Heat protection and hair repair, detangling and boosting roots for mega volume. Once I've stepped out of the shower, I spray Revlon Equave liberally all over my hair, this is a volumizing, detangling leave in conditioner. I have used this for years! It really helps with my super knotty hair plus the added volume is a bonus. I then use the Kerastase Ciment Thermique a heat activated reconstructing milk for brittle, damaged hair. Again I have used this for years!it's amazing for over processed hair. It leaves my hair silky soft and in great condition. For roots I go in with my trusty Paul Mitchell Extra Body Daily Boost. This is great because its specifically for use at the roots, giving mega lift and the handy nozzle is brilliant for really getting in there.
I typically wash my hair two to three times a week. On "dirty" hair days I just spray in some Batiste XXL Volume which brings my hair back to life in seconds and works brilliantly at keeping a pony tail in place.
