Envy Professional Style Hero

For those who know me well, you are well aware of what an addictive personality I have to things. When I was younger I had a DVD collection that rivalled all family and friends combined. This then moved onto clothes, fashion and beauty as I got older, and now I just love it when something comes along that I can obsess over. Envy Professional certainly has the products that I can obsess over and in this blog post I want to share with you (not my own one though!) the power of the Envy Professional Style Hero.

It is used by thousands of hairdressers worldwide and there is one simple reason for this- it works for everyone! No matter if you have fine, thick, curly or straight hair, the Envy Professional Style Hero works with it all to control, protect and repair damaged hair.

It has a very similar scent to freshly cut rose stems, just divine. Its key ingredients include Keratin amino acids and silk proteins which penetrate into each hair strand to lock in that all-important moisture we all love.

The Dubai Series: Day Three

So onto The Dubai Series: Day Three – the last day of our 72 hour holiday. Let’s start with some pretty awesome hair if I do say so myself…
The Dubai Series- saharasplash-55
So I did a mixture of French braid to the nape of my neck, and then I tied them up and did fishtails to the ends. I really liked the results of this spontaneous do! I think it went really well with the look from day three.
Paul and I took a taxi to JBR, the Jumeirah Beach Resort on our last day to spend some time with each other. We had a sizeable lunch at the Cheesecake Factory, I absolutely love their raspberry lemonade! The marble table at lunch provided a perfect opportunity to show off my second pair of nail wraps from Thumbsup nails, on the Dubai Series: Day Three I’m wearing ‘Mars’.

After that, we ventured out to find a great location to do some shooting.

I’m wearing a biker jacket with chiffon fall from Her Boutique, I love how unique the jacket is with this extra bit of detail. I decided to pair this with some crochet trousers from Primark. They are super comfy and perfect for hot weather down at the beach.
We found a stunning staircase and so we took advantage!

The Dubai Series: Prepping for an Exotic Getaway

I’ve been working really hard recently on a very secret project. This project involves a plane, an exotic destination and some pretty awesome products. I have had to keep this a secret over the past couple of weeks as our holiday has been an undercover mission to surprise some family who are living in Dubai! Paul and I booked the flights ten days before flying out and have been working with just one of our Dubai residents to organise and surprise the rest of them. So here is the first instalment in what I’m calling The Dubai Series: Prepping for an Exotic Getaway.

With just ten days to plan for our getaway, my first stop was travel money. There is only one place I go to for any travel money, it beats all the other competitors out there and you are guaranteed a fantastic rate. They are Ace Fx and they are located on my journey home in Canary Wharf. I reserved my Dirhams and got a great rate as usual.

 

Also in preparation, I reached out to my favourite hair salon to help get my hair travel ready-

The day before the flight, I went to visit the Aldwych salon to get a cut and blowdry. My hairdresser Craig gave me the top treatments from the Kerastase range, and one hour later my hair was fabulous and ready to go!

Next, onto the nails.
The Dubai Series- saharasplash-100
Barry M of course were the top choice when prepping for my exotic getaway. I used 2 colours from the new coconut infusion range- Bikini for my toes and Starfish for my hands. These are both lovely colours for a weekend getaway as they last so well and the colours would match what I had packed in my suitcase. The new range is infused with coconut oil to help hydrate and strengthen your nails.
The Dubai Series- saharasplash-8
Finally, on the morning of the flight, Nair was to the rescue!
The Dubai Series- saharasplash-97
I was lucky enough to try out the new Argan oil nourish range, and I was so happy with the results. I used the facial cream for my upper lip, the glide on for my underarms and for my bikini area and the shower power cream for my legs. The cream is super easy to apply, and you can wash it off in the shower after just ten mins. It really was the final touch to my preparations for Dubai, and I couldn’t wait to get on the plane!

 

Here is a snap from the airport. I chose to fly in my favourite shirt from Her Boutique, it’s so comfy and had me feeling holiday ready with the bright colours.

Stay tuned for Part 2 in the Dubai Series as up next it’s my travel essentials!

Blonde Hair Pale Skin – an incredible night!

I really have had an incredible few weeks recently with blogging. I have been to so many wonderful events and also had some fabulous experiences too. This post is all about blonde hair and pale skin as I visit RUSH hair and beauty salon and attend Em Ford’s fan event at YouTube headquarters all in one night.
 BLONDE HAIR PALE SKIN FEATURE IMAGE SAHARASPLASH
I recently went to RUSH on Piccadilly Circus to have my hair done and after the incredible results I really wanted to do something with them again. RUSH have opened a brand new salon in West Hampstead and so I was invited along to their opening week to get my hair done. I tied this in with a very exciting event hosted by Em Ford of My Pale Skin Blog.
After work I headed to the new RUSH salon, it’s a 5 minute walk from West Hampstead station so really easy to get to. The salon is brand new and so classy. It is fresh and open  with plenty of space. I was greeted by the staff who took my coat and we discussed what style and treatment I was going to have. We decided on loose waves to go with my glam dress.

The hair wash and treatment using the Kerastase products was divine. The treatment was massaged gently into my scalp, such a relaxing feeling! After this my hair was curled using the roll and pin technique. This gives the hair extra volume and bounce.

I had a lovely green tea, sadly no chocolate as it’s not gluten free, but RUSH really do go above and beyond when it comes to your appointment.

Fluffed, prepped and dried I was ready to hit the city just in time for Em Ford’s fan event!

I was so thrilled to get an invitation to this event, I love Em and My Pale Skin Blog so this was turning into a very special night.
I arrived at YouTube space London just in time to get to Em’s Q and A where she answered all our questions about her blog and her skin progress. It was great to see her and how far she has come from such hard work. She is a real inspiration to the blogging I want to do and so I am looking to get stuck in and start doing some makeup and beauty videos on my YouTube channel very soon!

After Em’s Q and A I headed over to the makeup station. Guests could have their hair, nails and makeup done so of course I had to do my makeup!

I met a lovely mua called Aine, she did such a fab job, and here are the results!

You don’t know me | Jawbreaker Clothing

I have been meaning to do this post for a while now. I have had such an incredible start to the year and have worked with some fabulous brands from Colette Green to Kent and Fraser, but I want to show you that I have many more sides to me than what you’ve seen so far. I have shown you my love for brands like Karen Millen and Boohoo, but I have a darker side also for brands like Jawbreaker. Here is something a little different to show you that you don’t know me… just yet!
jawbreaker-logo
Here are some facts which I haven’t mentioned on my blog to start things off:

 

1- I am a massive sci-fi fantasy fan. Everything from the latest Marvel movies to old school Star Trek.
2- I have an Astronomy GCSE. I love the stars and I also know why they twinkle… scintillation!
3- I have a darker side. This includes loving vampyric mythology and gothic trends, and so this is what inspired my brand new hairdo and wanting to work with Jawbreaker Clothing! 

 

Jawbreaker are an alternative clothing brand who I had the pleasure of meeting at this years London Edge show. I love how their clothes are aimed at all ages and they have a real variety which includes bright designs like this Mexican Skull bag or more traditional gothic styles like the Silencio Dress.
I really wanted to time this post right as I think it really ties in with my new hairstyle. Paul and I took a trip on a bloody cold Sunday afternoon to the rooftops of One New Change which gives you stunning views of the London City skyline and is pretty darn close to St Paul’s Cathedral too.

Above I am wearing the Wild Idol Vest from Jawbreaker and have paired this gorgeous vest top with some wet look leggings from Black Milk Clothing and the best faux fur jacket from Forever 21.

Below I am wearing Spin Your Web Top which I wore out to London Edge and also before I had my hair done! The lace up detail at the back is just divine.

You don't know me Jawbreaker_-7 You don't know me Jawbreaker_-8 You don't know me Jawbreaker_-10
We know we all have a wild side to us, and I hope that this post and the Jawbreaker brand has shown you that it’s ok to go with different styles. Be a chameleon with a hundred different looks and passions.
That is why you don’t know me and why you should stick around to see what I do next!
