Update on curly hair products

In a previous post i mentioned about trying out a new curly hair product which i found.
After trying twisted sista for a week i have decided its not for me as i either don't use enough product or it just doesn't work cos my hair was quite frizzy.
I am going to stick to the john Frieda dream curls for now as i like the spray bottle and it is keeping the dreaded frizz at bay,however i am going to try some other products as recommended by fellow bloggers and lovely ladies wardrobe wars,so will be back with more reviews :)

I got these little lovelies from my latest charity shop spree,all items came to less than £8

stunning warehouse vest top

these are some of my best Charity shop finds for a while all good quality items and i paid next to nothing for them too,love it! :P

Today i tried my hand at a little customising,well,nothing adventurous just changing some buttons.
i I bought a top shop cardi from the charity shop the other day and when i got it home i realised that 3 buttons were missing,i was disappointed as i love the arm detail on the cardi,then i remembered that i cut some metal buttons off a pair of ripped leggings that i was throwing away the other day,so i stitched them on and voila!

The cardigan looks much better now i think :)

New boots

I saw these boots in Tesco the other day and i love them,
i did at first resist the urge to purchase but after two days resistance was futile and and i gave in,they were a bargain at £10 they are usually £15 but there was an offer of  1/3 off all boots

they are really comfy and will look great in the colder weather,the heel height isn't to high either

what do you think? what sort of footwear will you be wearing this winter?

feel free to leave a comment :)

Its a curl thing

Having curly hair i have tried many a product over the years to try and tame the frizz but not weigh my fine hair down.
i have been using john Frieda dream curls for a while now and it seems to do the trick but at nearly £5 it is a tad expensive but does last me about a month.

I went into my local home bargains store yesterday and came across twisted sista curl activator

for a mere 99p its worth a try,so tried it this morning and it is great,just as good as the john Frieda.
i am going to stick to this product for a while and will let you know how i get on.
are there any other fellow curlies out there,what products do you swear by? please leave a comment :)

Foundation Application

I was wondering ladies,how do you apply your foundation.
there are a few ways you can apply

Foundation brush- i like the way it blends the foundation but feel it uses a lot more product,better used for a night out or special occasion in my opinion

Sponge wedges- This is what i use at the moment as they blend well and are soft and don't pull the skin

Fingers- This method is great when your in a rush,some say you shouldn't use fingers as the the oil in your skin affects the outcome but then on the other hand others say you can blend really well using your fingers

what do you think?
which method do you use,i would be interested to know,
please leave a comment :)

Estee lauder offer at boots

When you visit boots until the 5th Oct you can have a free 15 min consultation at a Estee Lauder counter where you can get advice and bag some free mini samples to try at home.
i went along today as i wanted some advice on the best foundation for my skin type.
i was professionally cleansed and foundation applied,looked really good and felt pampered,i was given little freebie samples of the foundation,moisturiser and others to try at home,so far the foundation has stayed put most of the day despite the rain and wind,i am definitely thinking of purchasing.
get along to your nearest counter!

Bootsale bargain of the week

last week ot the bootsale, i came across a fellow shopaholics stall which was crammed packed with lots of really nice quality items in as new condition and the most she was asking for 1 item was about £2,i was beside myself and dived right in :P
i acquired 2 pairs of new river island leggings,a ruffle top,2 long vest tops,Zara cardi and pair of shoes all for £5.50
she was there again on Sunday but understandably did not have as much as the previous week but still managed to bag a few bargains.
by far the the best bargain was a Rio muscle toner for a mere £3
