LVL Lash Lift

After hearing so much about the LVL Lash Lift I couldn’t wait to try it out for myself.
For those who haven’t heard of the treatment before, the LVL Lash Lift is a natural lash treatment which leaves your eyelashes looking long and beautifully lifted.

What is the LVL Lash Lift?

Unlike traditional eye lash perms, the LVL Lash Lift straightens your natural lashes from the root, using products gently tested to ensure that there is no damage to your natural lashes.  The treatment lasts between 6-8 weeks which is perfect if you have a holiday coming up, or just looking to simplify your makeup routine.

Unlike many other lash treatment, the LVL Lash Lift does not use adhesive or extensions, which is one of the many reasons why it is so popular at the moment. The idea is that you won’t need to bother applying mascara, as your lashes look perfectly polished after having the treatment.

The treatment.

I recently tried out the treatment, applied by the talented Sherrie at Bella Beauty. The process takes around 45 minutes and is one of the most relaxing beauty treatments I have ever had.  The process is pain free and you can even use the treatment as an excuse to take a quick nap.

As you have to keep your eyes closed for most of the treatment, Sherrie ensures that you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the whole process. She made me feel at ease at is was my first time trying out the treatment, and better yet the end result was amazing!

My result.

I am so impressed with how the treatment turned out.
As you can see from the before and after photos, my lashes look extremely long and are curled beautifully.

I decided to try the treatment just in time for my holiday and I am so pleased that I did. Now I won’t need to worry about applying mascara throughout the trip and I can spend more time sunbathing!

If you’re looking to try out a LVL Lash Lift then I would definitely recommend you book in with Sherrie at Bella Beauty and give yourself a well deserved pamper!

Benefit – Bold is Beautiful Brow Project

thumbnail_image1

When it comes to getting my eyebrows done, I always visit my nearest Benefit Brow Bar to get a wax and tint. I love how quick and easy they make it for me to achieve the perfect look.

This month I was pleasantly surprised to find that Benefit were giving 100% of their profits from their Brow Treatments to the charities Look Good Feel Better and Refuge.

It was great to see such a well known brand supporting a good cause. Along with giving the full price of the treatment to these charities, they also offered all customers a free gimme brow mini as an incentive to purchase the treatments.

After having my brows done, my brow technician also explained to me that they were also taking additional donations for the charity. With every donation they were giving away Benefit Popcorn and a sample of their new foundation, The POREfessional – Pore Minimising Foundation.

I took up the opportunity to help out the charities and in turn was gifted with some cute items. Not only did I enjoy munching on the popcorn, but the sample of the foundation worked wonders on my skin. I feel that it will definitely be a product to watch.

As always I left feeling very pleased with my brows, along with the customer service and acknowledgment I received. It’s always great to see brands helping out charities and I would definitely recommend you check out their Brow Bar.

befunky-collage

Last week I was lucky enough to attend a sneak preview of the Lace in Fashion exhibition at The Fashion Museum in Bath. The exhibition runs from February 4th 2017 until the January 1st 2018.

“Drawing on the riches of the Fashion Museum’s collection, as well as generous loans from contemporary fashion designers, the exhibition showcases 50 exquisite pieces, showing how lace has been used in fashion from the 1500s to the present day.”

On arrival we were welcomed with refreshments and had a chance to admire the collection whilst waiting for everyone to arrive. We were then given an amazing tour of the collections, enabling us to revisit the history behind each piece.

It was interesting to see how lace had began as a hand made art, taking hours to complete and only to be worn by the wealthiest of people. Many of the pieces we visited included collars and cuffs, carefully designed and perfected by delicate hand made lace.

It was amazing to see how far lace had come in terms of both technology and fashion. Lace can now be easily found on both the high street and catwalk, which makes it interesting to see how it has transformed throughout the years.

There are many collections to see, featuring some interesting and inspiring work.  Glamorous pieces come into play throughout the exhibition and there are some beautiful dresses which definitely caught my eye.

If you’re looking to spend the day admiring wonderful fashion, then I would definitely recommend you head to the Fashion Museum in Bath. Not only will you find this extraordinary collection, but you can venture through galleries filled with historical and contemporary fashion.

iS Clinical Bristol Blogger Event

Copy of isclinicalgroupwithwaterswish350dpi.jpg

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to a blogging event hosted by iS Clinical in Bristol. iS Clinical is a brand which features some amazing cosmecutical products, all of which help the signs of aging and fight against skincare problems such as acne and rosacea. 

On arrival we were greeted with prosecco and nibbles, then we proceeded to find out more about the company. It was great to hear about this brand as I didn’t have much knowledge of it beforehand. After listening to the staff talk about the brand and products, I was definitely impressed.

 Many of the products are 95-98% botanical which is incredible. I love skincare products, especially those which don’t include harsh chemicals.

After spending the evening hearing about the amazing benefits, I decided that I would give these products a try for myself. The products which stood out to me the most were  Cleansing Complex and Active Serum.

We found out that Cleansing Complex has some amazing benefits including; helping to control acne and breakouts, effectively removing makeup, gently resurfacing and removing dead skin cells, along with deep cleaning the surface skin and pores without drying.
If that doesn’t make you want to try out the product then I don’t know what else would!

Before reviewing this product I thought I would try it for at least a week. Even a week isn’t usually enough time to see the true benefits of a product, but I am very impatient and wanted to let you all know how I feel about the products I received.

After a whole week of using this cleanser both day and night, my skin has visibly improved. The blemishes I had before starting the treatment have completely disappeared and I haven’t had any more breakouts which is incredible. I also feel my skin tightening and I feel fresh every morning.

If you’re looking to try out a new skincare regime, you should get yourself booked in for a consultant with the team – they all seem lovely and the products they offer are incredible!

Holographic Glitter Gel Nails

thumbnail_img_2507

I absolutely love having my nails done. As my nails are naturally pretty strong and grow really fast, I love to treat myself to a gel or shellac manicure once in a while.

I’ve recently been really disappointed after trying out a new salon which absolutely ruined my nails, not to mention the shellac polish peeling off after just three days! But two weeks ago I had my faith restored when I had this amazing polish put on.

For somebody who loves glitter, this holographic gel polish is literally a dream. I’ve had it on my nails for just over two weeks now and it hasn’t chipped or peeled at all. I am so happy to have finally found somewhere who has decent gel polish.

Did I mention how much I love the glitter?

Bridget Jones Blogger Event

Last Thursday I was lucky enough to attend a blogging event to celebrate the release of Bridget Jones’s Baby. The event was held in three venues, all of which you will find in Aspects Leisure Park in Kingswood, Bristol.

There were seven bloggers attending in total and our first stop was Chiquitos.
My plus one and I had arrived at the event early, so I was able to get some snaps of the amazing set up before the rest of the girls arrived.

The staff working in Chiquitos that night had set up a cute little table for us all, filled with nachos, cocktail menus and even a sombrero each. The atmosphere in the place was great and it wasn’t long before the cocktails started flowing and our starters arrived.

 

The table was filled with so many delicious dishes, including battered Piña Colada prawns, chilli and cheesy garlic bread, along with several traditional Mexican platters. These went down very well with the wonderful cocktails they had to offer us. My favourite cocktail being the Gin Fizz.

After feeling very full from our starters, it was then time to head across the car park to Pizza Hut Restaurant. The Pizza Hut Restaurant in Aspects Leisure Park Bristol has recently been refurbished and it looks incredible.

The restaurant has a real American Diner feel to it which we all enjoyed. After being offered various new pizzas and sides from their menu, I finished my evening feast with a bubbly glass of prosecco.

 

Once we had finished stuffing our faces, it was time to head over to the main event. With less than a five minute walk away we arrived at Vue to watch Bridget Jones’s Baby.

We were lucky to have the back row of the cinema reserved for us, which made the experience even more incredible. The film itself was hilarious and I would even go as far as saying it’s the best one yet.

I had an amazing evening and met some wonderful people.
It was great to experience so many different establishments, all in one place.

If you’re looking to spend an evening dining in a great restaurant or visiting an entertaining bowling or cinema complex, then you should definitely try out Aspects Leisure Park.

Estée Lauder Blogging Event – Free Gift For Readers!

 

thumbnail_IMG_1771

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to an Estée Lauder blogging event at Cribbs Causeway Bristol. The event was held in Scavi & Ray, an elegant prosecco bar found in The Mall Cribbs Causeway.

On arrival we were greeted by our amazing host Karen. She welcomed us in and ensured that we were comfortable and well equipped with mini bottles of prosecco and delicious nibbles. Karen and the women at Estée Lauder also gifted each blogger with an amazing goody bag full of Estée Lauder gifts which I will be reviewing very soon!

Once we were all settled, Karen began explaining to us the history of Estée Lauder. I have used a lot of their products before, but it was really interesting to find out that Estée Lauder was in fact a woman who created the first set of samples for make-up and skincare. Estée Lauder was an inspirational woman and she has definitely made a huge impact in the beauty industry!

After we were all filled in with the knowledge we needed on the brand, Karen began to demonstrate some of the amazing products Estée Lauder has to offer.

My favourite products were those taken from the Genuine Glow range. This range is well suited to a younger audience and is guaranteed to leave your skin looking and feeling gorgeous. The two products I loved trying out the most were the Genuine Glow Eyelighting Creme for Face and Eyes as it makes the perfect highlighter, along with the Reviving Oil Lip Tint. What was amazing about the Lip Tint is how it adapts to suit your skin tone. Several bloggers tried out the product and we each saw the shade change to best suit our complexion.

Once we had watched several amazing demonstrations and tried out some amazing new products, we headed over to the Estée Lauder counter at Boots to be colour matched to a foundation of our choice. We were then able to take a sample of our matched foundation home.

I had such an amazing evening and I couldn’t wait to get home and try out all the products generously gifted to me. I will be reviewing these products in depth very soon!

thumbnail_IMG_1805

Before leaving the event, the women at Estée Lauder wanted to make sure that our readers were also able to benefit from this amazing experience. If you take the voucher below to the Estée Lauder counter in Boots you will be able to receive your own free gift! The voucher is accepted by showing it on your phone, along with in print form. I hope you guys enjoy and I am sure you will love their products as much as I do!

I would like to thank Karen and all of the Estée Lauder team in Cribbs Causeway for allowing this amazing event to take place. I would also like to show my appreciation for Scavi & Ray for providing us with prosecco all night- you guys are the best!
