Feather Hair Extensions Put Onto A Clip

I get so bored of my hair, it's plain brown and I never dye it so I love the thought of hair feathers to add a flash of colour!
I wanted to be able to clip the feathers in and out for work purposes.
I bought 5 loose feathers in various purples which cost me around £12 online. I then got hold of a single "snap clip" that regular hair extensions use to be clipped in close to the head.

Ear Candle Tutorial

Every few months or so I like to use ear candles, so recently when I had been a bit ill, my ears kept popping and feeling really blocked I bought a pair ear candles from Amazon for £1.59
There is a lot of talk on ear candles and if they actually work or not. I find the process quite relaxing, so even if it isn't actually making a difference to my ears, I enjoy it anyway.
Equipment you will need is
  • A pair of ear candles
  • A lighter/Matches
  • A bowl of cool water
  • A small toddler hand holding a Custard Cream....Just kidding.

Kate Middleton "Hairspiration"

I love Kate Middleton's hair, It always looks so effortlessly put together. The hair style inparticular that I love is when Kate wears it sleek and controlled through the top and mid lengths with a big bouncy curl to the ends. So today I had a go at it.
I used these three pictures as my inspiration:

My nail of the day was inspired by FleurDeForce's new video on youtube. She had a blue and a pink polish and had switched the colours around on each hand. Subtle yet interesting! Watch her video here.

Beauty Box Kisses

One clever girly suggested that the swappers of Beauty Box Swaps share their pictures of their red lips. We all jumped at the chance and photo's of every shade of red on every shape of lip were soon filling the page!
Here are a few who shared their "red lip pic" for my blog...
Starting with mine:
I am wearing MEMEME lipstick in Ruby Rich.

Benefit Erase Paste Review

Benefit Erase Paste is a creamy concealer that brightens and camouflages. It targets dark circles, discolouration and imperfections such as blemishes and spots.
I just so happen to have a spot (what are the chances! hmmm! ¬_¬ ) so here you can see it in action!
Packaging a little different as this is a mini from the Finding Mr Bright set

Pastels are the number one style statement for Spring 2012. I am not very fashionable, so it's surprising that I even know that... But never the less here are my pastel "ice cream" coloured nails...

Nail Polish Haul

In the last two day's, I have aquired 11 new nail varnishes...That is not good! That is an addiction!
Welcome to Nail Polish Addicts Anonymous.
The first step is realising you have a problem so here goes.
I'm Emily, and I'm a polishaholic...
Now I didn't buy them all, so technically, I don't have a problem...That sounds like the second step to me... Denial!

L'oreal Nude Magique BB Cream - Fresh Face To Full Face

L'oreal Magique BB Cream is such a strange product. I thought I would hate it and that it wouldn't work. However I love the look it gave my skin and the overall finished makeup look I achieved, just not for this time of year. Here is my Fresh face to full face review.

Fake Benefit... Moral Of The Story- Listen To Your Dad!

Don't ever assume... It makes an ASS out of  U and ME.
These are my dad's wise words and I should really take more notice of what he says.
When I got invited by a friend to join a facebook page belonging to a girl selling Benefit makeup cheaply, I jumped at the chance. I just ASSUMED it would be genuine and above board.
It wasn't. And I am now the unproud owner of FAKE Benefit makeup.
I want to point out the dangers and ways to spot fakes. So here we go...
