Breathe in the air if you care, you compare, don't say farewell.

Merry Christmas you guys. Hope santa was good to you all. He was definitely very generous in our house (': I havent updated as i've been spending my time being incredibly lazy (i injured my foot last week) and watching tv so on and so forth. I've had an A+ christmas. Pity the sales have been rubbish, i've had my eye on things that should have been on sale but were not. Disappointed much? None the less...
It's new years eve. Have a great evening :D
Happy New Year xx

It's Christmas Eve tomorrow <3 oh the excitement. Can't wait to put all the gifts under the tree and sit back and watch whatever movie is on (':


From now until Christmas all i'm going to do is watch Christmassy movies and tv shows i associate with Christmas..... like the chrismukkah episodes of The OC and such (':
The lack of snow this year is depressing. It just doesn't feel like Christmas at all which is kind of disappointing cause if the world does end next year (and lynx seem pretty sure it will) this will be our last ever. But I'm just being dramatic...
Going to crack on with the movies and blast some xmas music on my ipod for the next 5 days.....

Review : Fat Hair Shampoo & Conditioner.

Let me start by saying that I only bought this shampoo cause it was in zoella's hair care video a few months ago and being incredibly jealous of her long voluminous hair i was willing to try anything to achieve the same results. I bought this a few days after seeing her video cause it just so happened that i was up north and able to go to 'Superdrug' and buy was also on offer, at 2 for 6£ ie. bargain!

The shampoo is described on the website as so :
This revolutionary sulphate free, 100% vegan, thickening shampoo is the first step toward thicker, fuller, stronger hair. Samy’s exclusive Thickening Complex—a blend of natural extracts and proteins—penetrates each hair strand resulting in thicker, fuller, stronger, healthier looking hair.
With the conditioner being described as :
This ultra lightweight, 100% vegan, thickening conditioner transforms fine, limp hair into thicker, fuller, stronger hair. Specially formulated not to weigh hair down. Samy’s exclusive Thickening Complex—a blend of natural extracts and proteins—penetrates each hair strand resulting in thicker, fuller, stronger, healthier looking hair.

Unfortunately it was nothing like this for me. My hair has a tendency to be very dry (years of dying it kicking me in the face) so I need a shampoo and conditioner duo that really helps nourish it as it does become extremely brittle. This shampoo completely dried my hair out and the conditioner didnt do much conditioning. It wasn't very nice. I didn't like the feel of my hair and because i don't like to waste things, I continued using it till i could go out and buy something else. I give it 10/10 for thickening my hair. It really delivered there. For only it dried my hair out so much and made it look so unhealthy i'd be completely in love (Especially as its 100% vegan).

Although at times when i hadn't gone hardcore on the straighteners i reminded myself of monica in that episode of friends, not as bad mind you but getting there. My main problem upon my first wash with this? The smell! Its AWFUL. I don't even know how to describe it but trust me its not nice at all..
But this is just my experience. If you're not prone to dry, disastrous hair then by all means run to your nearest superdrug ;) you'll love this as much as i wish i could. But if you are like me and have been dying your hair every colour under the sun since you were 12? Then stay far away as it won't help give you a glowing volumised head of hair..

If you've tried this let me know in the comments below.


O.P.I - Katy Perry Collection.

Now I know this nail polish has been around for a while, but i live in the middle of no where so its hard to get my hands on 'high end' sorta stuff. In other words if its not drugstore make up I won't get it here. But one of the days I was wandering around the shops where I go to college where lo and behold I saw a small little 'O.P.I' stand. I literally never see 'O.P.I' in Ireland. Unfortunately they only had two shades and at €13 its a bit pricey so I settled on this one from the Katy Perry collection. I love Katy Perry and I love anything sparky and girly so there wasn't much hesitation. I've had it a couple weeks now and I adore it. You do need two or three coats to make it stand out but it dries quickly so its not that much bother. I like to wear it with another blue nail polish I have from Rimmel, it really makes it pop. My favourite thing about it? How easily it pulls off. I know how random. But i get bored with my nails being painted so i like pulling it off and this just comes off in one. It's brilliant haha.
Let me know in the comments some of your favourite 'O.P.I' shades, I'm going to order a few online for Christmas...x
