5 Things that only girls with fine hair will understand



  1. I can DE-tangle my hair as much as I like, but the minute I leave my house BOOM its already knotty again
  2. Your hair gets greasy quicker I guarantee you within 4+ hours after I have washed my hair there will be a small patch that looks oily
  3. volume is a foreign concept when it comes to fine hair
  4. you have to spend a small fortune on dry shampoo 
  5. curling your hair is a time consuming process you have to re curl it sooooo many times and then you've got to REALLY lock it in with hairspray

RAT & BOA WISHLIST

I'm not going on a holiday for a while but I stumbled across rat and boa just over a year ago on Instagram they've had me hooked for a hot minute ever since 

Here's what I'm loving from their site





Hand embroidered in a lilac sheen yarn covered with  iridescent sequins, this shimmering conversation starter will definitely catch everybody's attention you could layer this by paring it with a new a nude slip underneath for dinner at a restaurant or by wearing it over a bikini to laze on the beach either way it'll take you from day to night and make you forget about the £150 price tag.  






Have you ever seen a more perfect dress your entire existence (yeah me neither) if there was ever a dress that would make me feel empowered,sexy and goddess like all at the same time this dress would be the one to take on the challenge and win ,it also doesn't hurt that it looks comfortable AF ,so book yourself a mini break and show off those pins.








Nothing screams luxury quite like a velvet jumpsuit so whether you're going to the club to get your Saturday night boogie on, or meeting a friend for dinner just remember this sexy little number would get you so many compliments like' "I love that jumpsuit where'd you get it" Circa Mean Girls 2004  (The 70s never looked this good before).

The Zodiac

Setareh Hosseini, aka  starlit_makeup, a makeup artist with over 100-thousand followers on Instagram.
she uses many diffenrent techniques to breathe life into each characters star sign using make-up to create a realistic embodiment/trait of all members of the zodiac .

As a lover of astrology and constellations I am fascinated with the artists' unique interpretation of the different star signs ,her use of props to help convey the member of each zodiac

♐️Sagittarius- The hunter
She's a restless wanderer; always on the hunt for new innovative ideas and experiences. Her arrow symbolizes her desire for direction and a higher purpose. She's the maven of adventure, the learned healer whose higher intelligence forms a bridge between heaven and earth. ♐️

♏️Scorpio- The Secret Keeper
It's all in her penetrating stare. Dark and calculating, her eyes are foreboding yet hypnotic. Powerful, passionate and intuitive. She wears strength and darkness equally well; half goddess, half hell raiser. Nevertheless, she is divine, and in her eyes is where your soul is truly revealed. ♏️

♌️Leo- The hunger
You can usually pick her out from a crowd – she’s the one with the loudest laugh, the brightest smile, and the most confident strut of them all. Her hair is a mane made of gold, and her skin glows like a sunset in the height of summer . She is the alpha, the lioness, the leader and the warrior. She may appear soft like a daydream, but she has a never ending fire burning inside her. ♌️

♊️Gemini- The gifted
Recognized by her contradictory nature, her mind is often torn between logic and absurdity. She's a combination of high intelligence, wit, and eloquence. Forever battling mystical forces of left and right; she'll mirror your best and worst traits and show you things you never knew you needed to see. ♊️
♍️Virgo- The Virtuous
She personifies innocence, purity and justice. Her earthly nature makes her tremendously clever and analytical. All that is beautiful to her erupts in subtle, though magnificent spectacle. She's a maiden & belongs to the pristine; always striving to bring back the balance between order and chaos. ♍️

♉️Taurus- the Idealist
Unapologetically stubborn with a strong willed character, great perseverance and determination. She has a hot and fiery temperament, and will unleash it when pushed to her limits. Even so, she loves anything that exhilarates her senses. Controlled by inner serenity and a unwavering sense of stability, she is & always will be a force to be reckoned with. ♉️

♋️Cancer- The Soulful
She is the tide, the gentle glow around the  moon, the waves that wash over on the shore. She feels everything deeply, even though she may not like to show it. Her shell may be hard and at times impenetrable but it is forever guarding her tender soul. Surely it is harder to break something soft rather than rigid. You touch her and she is far more real than anything you have ever felt before. Cosmic particles of moon dust line her veins. For she is like the moon, you'll see her with a new face everyday. ♋️
♒️Aquarius- The Visionary
She's a mad scientist in her lab, inventing and creating night and day. Her rapid influx of thoughts and subsequent surprising actions make her unpredictable and restless. Anarchy is her middle name. Forever fighting valiantly for the soul of the world, she pours her wisdom and equilibrates your mind. She is dazzling and terrifying. Always tipping the scale of genius and insanity. She lives in the future and who she is comes in waves.
Galaxies in her lungs, stars in her eyes. She is a child of the cosmos, a ruler of the skies. ♒️
♑️Capricorn- The Methodist
Her determination is admirable, her self-containment powerful. She's concrete, ambitious and in charge. Always leading loyally and achieving relentlessly. No mountain peak is high enough for her to climb, and her love is as stable as the earth under her feet. ♑️

♓️Pisces- The Dreamer
Ethereal, and deeply mysterious.
Her mind swims at a depth most would drown in. She's always floating in opposite directions, this represents her soul's duality. She is the ultimate enchantress & her heart is an ocean of emotion; always changing and dreaming of realms that only she may enter. ♓️

♈️Aries- The challenger
Fiery and fiercely passionate, she wears steel armour and her horns always  ready for battle. Forever taking charge and always searching looking for dynamic and competition. Driven by her avidity and born to be a fearless leader, she bares a pure and almost childlike soul; untainted & unafraid. ♈️

♎️Libra- The Charmer
Her charming personality is praiseworthy, her voice melodious, her heart just. To truly understand her, you must understand the riddle of the scales; forever weighing her thoughts and emotions. She is a flower with carefully hidden thorns & without her, life simply wouldn't be as fair and justly. ♎️

Gracie Francesca


I have been watching Gracie's channel and reading her blog for just over two years now and I still get excited when she puts out a self confidence video or a really thought provoking post about body image as I still at times as I'm sure 99 percent of the population will agree as they too struggle with self love/confidence

I find that she is a breath of fresh air and that way she uses her social platforms to help encourage new/upcoming bloggers or talk about topic that may be considered controversial is exactly why she is named the Internets big sister to me she has never been about how many designer handbag she owns but rather how can she tackle a subject the isn't talked about enough so I suggest you stop what ever you doing and check her out

Gracie if you ever get a chance to read this know that your I think your amazing and continue to make great quality content as you made some of my dull days a little bit brighter

The Manchester Attack

22/5/17 will forever be a date ingrained in the minds of the UK 

An IS attack that has left 22 dead and 59 injured and many more missing 

It deeply saddens me that this was intended to be a night of merriment for these concertgoers seeing their idol performing mere steps from their faces which has now become a harrowing memory of IS fuelled attack claiming many innocent lives and the actions of a man who chose to take his life but took 22 others with him  

I send my love and prayers to the victims and their parents ,injured,missing,first res-ponders and all emergency services for the support during this difficult time

Soigné {Pronounced 'Swahn -Yey'}
                                   English Translation - 'To take care of'

 I know I am not the only one who picks up nail polish remover just for the the sole purpose of removing the polish without any disregard to the affect it may have on my nail bed or picking at my nails the moment that it start to chip so I have been searching for a nail brand that could solve my nail woes but would tick all my boxes too
  1. Timeless packaging
  2. Timeless colours 
  3. Good for my nails
  4. Wont break the bank      
and I think I may have found it but I wont know until I have tried it but thats another blog post for another time ...

soigné claims to be one of the safest nail polish brands on the market,yet still provides a high standard of quality and luxury as their fomula does not contain any harmful carcinogens ,does not test on animals and is completey vegan

My Wishlist

Beauty And The Beast Review

    Director: Bill Condon
          Cast: Emma Watson,Dan Stevens, Luke Evans and Josh Gad 
          Year: 2017


After leaving her small provincial town to find her missing father  the beautiful ,independent Belle, becomes imprisoned by a hideous beast who was once a young spiteful arrogant prince cursed by an enchantress not to be deceived by appearances, living inside a dark enchanted castle with living antiques as his only companions, the longer Belle stays with the beast they both learn that true beauty is found within


I dont think the right words to describe this movie even exist ,I was absolutley blown away by Disney's retelling of a beloved classic it answed so many questions that the 1991 animation did not, ill give you one example so that I dont spoil it  such as '' How did a small rural village not notice a giant looming eeriee castle in the middle of the forest ?'' however if you like tales as old as time and songs as old as rhyme  I recommend that you go and see it you wont be disappointed.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit Review and Swatches

Anastasia Beverly Hills; 
In my opinion it is one of the highest ranking beauty brands I have come across! Why? I hear you makeup lovers ask;
Well in short it gives me BANG for BUCK $$ !

Ever since my first Anastasia purchase of the Dip Brow Pomade I feel that her products are without a doubt the epitome of Hollywood Glamour without the Sunset Boulevard Prices.
Which has made online late night beauty browsing, increasingly difficult without using some serious refrain, not to buy everything on Anastasia's website. Whoops ! 

A couple of weeks ago I finally gave in.
It was my birthday and well every girl knows that on her birthday she should have something she really wants!
I purchased the light to medium contour kit because there were so many exceptional reviews on various beauty blogs and social media.
One of these reviews came from Melissa Alatorre - The Queen of Conture



The palette will remain a staple in my make up collection for years to come; with its finely milled pigments, shade selection, ability to go from natural to sultry with a few strokes of a brush and flawless coverage.

Defintions By Rudy Francisco

Defintions By Rudy Francisco

Envy is when someone walks around with a pocketful of ''that should've been me'' 

Hate is what happens when you put a shotgun to the face of understanding and it cowers in the corner

 Truth is everything you tell yourself when you realize no ones looking 

Courage is ripping your heart out of you chest and saying ''here.. hold on to this for me''

Trust is when you jump into someone's arms knowing they would never let you hit the ground 

Love is a tablespoon of hemlock that I've been dying to try 

Faith is doing what you love for a living an watching the bills pay themselves 

Failure is when you talk yourself out of  becoming something amazing

A Little Rusty

I dont know about you but not wearing nail polish is the equivalent to me not wearing underwear I feel naked and vunerable with out it.

During a shopping trip with my mum as she wanted to look in John Lewis for christmas presents I went over to YSL and was curious to see if they had the nail polish in Brun Henne the lady behind the counter then handed me this tiny gold box Ive never handed over a £20 note so quickly in my life and to my amazement she told me it was now £9.50 due to the shade being part of ysl's summer collection.

The wide, flat brush covered my nails in one or two strokes and dried almost instantly not only that but the shade itself is devine I would describe it as a rusty reddish brown that has a vintage feel to it like a 50s screen siren wouldnt be caught wearing any shade other than this.
