I have always been pretty adventurous with my hair. So it was only a matter of time before I delved into the pastel and metallic hair trend. I have been oohing and ahhing about it for a while now. Then out of blue I was emailed by the fab people at BBlonde and asked if I would like to try one of there toners, As soon as I saw they had launched a new silver shade I jumped at the chance.

In the box you get a golden bottle of toner. Taking a peek in the bottle you see a sparkly purple liquid. However it is actually more of a liquidy gel which makes applying much easier.

Refresh and improve the condition of your hair whilst adding a stylish silver shade of colour. Easy to use and protects and conditions whilst colouring hair. This colour toner adds soft silver tones that last up to 8 washes.

The toner is perfect for those who are naturally or already blonde and just want to spruce up their shade. Or for the more daring who have just prelightened their hair and want to get a shiny new colour. With my roots coming through anyway I thought Id go for it and hit the bleach.

BBlonde recommend not using a conditioner before use so your hair can soak up the colour. Then on towel dried hair slap on the bottle of toner from root to tips. I used two bottles as my hair is quite long and would definitely recommend more than one bottle if your hair is shoulder length or longer. After massaging the colour in pop your head in a plastic cap ( I used a plastic shower cap) give it a blast of heat from the hair dryer for 5 mins. Then leave on for up to half an hour depending on the depth of colour you want.

I left mine on for 20 mins as my hair had just been bleached I knew my hair would take the colour quickly. You then rinse until the water runs clear I then popped in a conditioning treatment before rinsing and leaving my hair to dry before styling.

So here is what my hair once dried and styled looked like!

I absolutely love it, its a pretty, shiny, light silver shade! I love how multitonal the finish is and the softness of the silver. I will definitely be using this again although I cant wait to try the pink toner from the range! To get your own silver toner take a peek at the BBlonde Website here.

An alternative to traditional braces


Flipping through any newspaper or glossy mag one thing you can't fail to notice the stars perfectly straight and shining white teeth. If you have anything less the Hollywood smile you may well have experienced pangs of jealousy at these fab smiles. You're not alone!

Having spent my teens with the classic train track braces, I dreamed of achieving the perfect set of teeth. However my teeth weren't as straight as I had originally hoped. I personally think my braces where taken off too soon. I would love to get my teeth sorted but I'm not keen on having a mouth full of metal all over again.

Just like me, many people are put off getting their teeth fixed by the thought of metal fixed braces. So what do you do if you;re looking to perfect your smile but don't want to look like your a school kid! Well the people at sensu have the answer! With Invisalign you can straighten your teeth without feeling you need to hide your teeth.

Invisalign is a truly modern orthodontic system. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to straighten the teeth. Put simply, it is an amazing clear brace system, which provides an innovative, inconspicuous alternative to traditional fixed braces.
You can also see the expected outcome before starting the treatment using the latest computer technology, so unlike my previous experience with braces you won't be left feeling disappointed.

Fake Tan Friday - Sienna X Q10 Bronzing mousse


SiennaX - sienna x tan - bronzing mousse - Q10 bronzing mousse - fake tan friday - fake tan - false tan - self tan - tanning mousse - review - swatch - pictures wearing the product

Today's trip into the bronzed world of tanning sees us trying out an industry leader! Sienna x made famous by its celeb following and use on strictly. Sienna x regularly wins awards not only for their at home products but also in the salon and spa sectors.

I was sent the Q10 tanning mousse* and balance body wash by the lovely people at sienna X. The tan comes in a 250ml golden can with sienna x written in pink on it! It looks like a professional product with a girly feel. The metal can adds weight to the product making it feel like a high quality product. as well as keeping the ingredients fresh.

The tan is described as a mousse which is one of the easiest ways to tan in my opinion, especially for beginners. However it's so much more luxurious than most mousses I have used. With an almost whipped cream like consistency, the mousse expands quite a lot so you actually use a lot less product than it appears. I been using this for the past few months and I still have some left! Obviously I can't tell how much as its a can but I haven't had any lighter mousse come out implying it's running low.

When you first apply the colour guide can be quite scary as it's really dark! However the dark colour guide makes it so easy to see where its applied. However when you wash off the guide colour you're left with a natural and golden tan. The formula itself is really easy to move around the skin and extremely blendable, so this combined with the dark colour guide makes it's almost impossible to end up with a streaky or patchy result.

Packed to the roof tops with natural ingredients such as blackcurrant, Vitamin E and pomegranate. as well as Q10 which helps fight the signs of ageing. After use your skin fills silky and moisturised which I think is down to these ingredients.

The tan has a sweet fruity smell, it reminds me of the fruit salad sweets. Perfect for giving u that summer feeling! With no dodgy biscuit scent at all!

I really recommend using the prolonging body wash between tanning. As my tan lasted an extra few days by using it before needing to be scrubbed off.  Also it faded so much less so I will definitely be purchasing that again, with the tan. Without use of the wash the tan lasted 4 days which is great but with it prolonged it to a whole week. One thing I really loved is its easily scrubbed off for me to start the tanning process again. rather than with other tans  which I have to scrub myself raw to get it off.

If ur looking for a salon tan at home this mousse couldn't make any easier to achieve .

Escentual Wishlist #2 2015

I'm constantly adding to my wishlist and today I thought I would share some of the items I'm really longing to own from one of my fave beauty sites Escentual.

 bareMinerals - bareskin foundation - perfecting face brush - Darphin - dark circle illuminator - Covermark - leg and body make up - bumble and bumble - creme de coco masque - rapid brow - brow enhancing serum - Guerlain - rouge automatique lipstick - Marc Jacobs - Daisy Eau so fresh Sorbet - Schwarzkopf Professional silhoutte mousse - wishlist - escentual  - givenchy - bb cream

1. BareMinerals Perfecting Face Brush

Ever since I first saw this advertised I knew I wanted to give it a go. The idea is you add drops of your foundation into the crater in the brush for the perfect application. The fact that you can use the same brush for different levels of coverage, by varying the amount of foundation added, is a major plus for me.

2. BareMinerals Bareskin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation

This is the foundation meant to go with the Perfecting Face Brush, so it's only fair to try them together. Offering adjustable mineral coverage and supercharged skincare in one. I also heard really good things about this foundation. I'd love to add this to my hoard.

3. Darphin Ideal Resource Anti- Dark Circle Eye Illuminator

I suffer quite badly with dark circles and anything that can help is without doubt on my wishlist. This lightly tinted moisturiser is said to give instant and long lasting results, with continued use over time leaving under eye skin looking more radiant and younger.

4. Covermark Leg Magic Perfect Cover Waterproof Makeup for Legs and Body

I bruise like a peach and nothing ruins my outfits more than a big blue bruise on my legs or arms. This sounds like the perfect answer! It's waterproof as well so unlike my current diy coverups I don't have to worry about drink spillages or the makeup coming off in the pool.

5. Bumble and Bumble Creme de Coco Tropical-Riche Masque

With my constant hair dying my hair is always dry and damaged. I'm always searching for ways to restore the moisture as well as giving myself a bit of a pamper. Made with a trio of moisturising butters, this restorative masque improves flexibility, suppleness and smoothness, Just what the hair doctor ordered.

6. Rapid Brow EyeBrow Enhancing Serum

I'm really trying to grow out my brows and get them reshaped and tinted. However my eyebrows are growing at a snails pace (well apart from the crazy odd strand) So anything that can help me get my brows in shape, would without doubt make it on my wishlist.

7. GUERLAIN Rouge Automatique Hydrating Long- Lasting Lip Colour

As soon as I saw this I knew I needed this, the shade is called Tonka Imperiale. This Limited Edition Lippie is the perfect browny nude. Complementing sunkissed skin and in keeping with the 90's lip trend. This lipstick ticks all the boxes for a spring/ summer look.

8. Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Sorbet Edition

Not only do Marc Jacobs perfumes look stunning they smell divine! I'm a big fan of the Daisy range, so its no surpise this is on my wishlist. I'd love to add this new version to my perfume collection plus it looks so pretty on a dressing table.

9. Schwarzkopf Professional silhoutte Flexible Hold Mousse

I love my hair big and bouncy, one of best ways to achieve this is by using mousse. However I hate when my hair goes crispy so a flexible hold is a must. This lightweight mousse promises natural shine and bounce, With long-lasting yet invisible hold,what more could you want.

10. Givenchy hydra sparkling nude look BB Cream

With summer hopefully on it's way here in the UK I start looking for less coverage from my day to day foundation. A BB cream is the perfect answer to this. This one from Givenchy has SPF 30 and is infused with a sparkling water complex so really hydrates the skin, Definitely what my dryer skin needs.

Do any of my picks take your fancy? Do you own any of these products? What products have you added to your list? Let me know all your thoughts by commenting below.

Lots of Love,
Laura x
