Nail Art- Autumn Trend ( Better View)

Coloured Hair

I dyed my hair again, but this time I had to dye it twice because first time had too many patchy, ginger looking colours all over my head.

This is my colour ( I was shopping and I wanted to see the effect store lighting had)

New hair colour- achieved without bleaching
The colour is very bright, compared to the effect of just one dye. I suppose it's less damaging because I don't bleach it. Nevertheless, my hair is extremely dry.

I am currently looking for good shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair, so far I bought some Khiel's olive  oil shampoo and conditioner. I am also waiting for my Moroccanoil to arrive,as some deep treatment is needed.

Nail Art Tutorial- Autumn Mood

Hey guys so I tried out the ombre nail art you use with the sponge. And I added my own little touch with a layer of glitter nail polish as well as sequins.

It does look very dramatic, but I never aim for subtle nails. I think if you take the effort to do you nails, why not make it fun and go the extra mile?

I chose 3 colours initially, a purple, metallic, and a clear pink glitter one. It is better to have a base coat, I chose a black colour,  and carried out the 'dabbing' (stamping? you get the idea) over it. When dried, I painted the glitter polish over it again, giving it a subtle tint. Next I used a sequince nail polish over the top part of the nail two times ( waiting for first layer to dry before painting) , this is so that I get maximum cluster of sequins.

I will be uploading a video soon so hope that helps :)

Hey guys please follow my blog!!

Photo Bomb

I thought I would make a effort with my makeup this time! I apologise in advance for the photo bomb that's going to take place.

Being the lazy person that I am, I usually don't go out with circle lenses or eyelid tape. In fact this is the first time I'm trying out eyelid tape. I do have double eyelids but its the inner double type- meaning you can't see it from far away.

I think the eye enlarging effect is pretty good, but I wouldn't recommend doing the whole routine everyday. And of course the eye lid tape is pretty obvious, especially when you blink, covering with eyeshadow will only camouflage its appearance slightly. So be warned!

Mission In Life

We should be thankful for every breath we take, we are alive because God believes we are valuable,

 and that we have a purpose. He breathes life into us because we are all destined for greatness. 

Everyone has a mission in life, God will guide you unto your path. But you have to be the one who 

strives for it.

No one has a empty life, you just haven't found your purpose yet. 

This is only the start of your journey :) Don't waste God's faith in you!

Kpop Girl Crushes

My list of Kpop girl crushes-  just for fun! ( Please note these pictures are not mine, and this is just my personal views :) )
  • Goo Hara ( Kara)
 She has often been labelled with 'elementary school kid's body' but I think Goo Hara has such a perfect waist. I mean everything is just so toned and flat! In fact, all of Kara members have the perfect waistline, which I can only assume is due to their diet plans and regular exercises routine. Her adorable personality makes her my favourite Kara member.

  • Tiffany ( Girls Generation)
 I feel like Tiffany, along with the rest of Girls Generation have become even more pretty with time. After watching ' Girls Go To Shool' Tiffany has become one of favourites with her personality and determination. I was really impressed with all the member's preserverance. Some people may not realise the hard work they put in to become where they are now.

  • Sunhwa ( Secret)
She's such a sweet and elegant girl. I like Secret a lot too but I only knew Secret through her at first. Her personality is also very different to what you expect from her, which makes me like her just alittle more.

No Pain No Gain

So I used the blackhead extractor for the first time

Blackhead extractor/ Tear producing device
And my gosh was is painful. My nose was very red and painful afterwards. I couldn't see the results immediately, but after the redness has faded a little, I could see  a lot of my blackheads are gone. My blackheads were never severe to begin with, but I was tired of using blackhead scrubs, and this just produced results a lot faster.

I bought mine from Boots, but I think you can also purchase from amazon. I suggest the Tweezerman make, because it is really good quality.

Process of blackhead extraction: ( warning- cases of infection can occur if you are not careful!)
1.  Wash face using warm water and a facial scrub. This will open your pores.

2. Pat dry. And apply disinfectant/ antiseptic to extraction area. Also wipe the longer end of the device so that no dirt is transferred.

3.Now press hard on the area until dirt start to exude from the pores. This part will be painful, so be mentally prepared.

4. Every time you extract, try to wipe your nose and device with disinfectant/antiseptic to decrease chances of infection.

5. After the extraction has finished, wipe area with antiseptic/ disinfectant as well as device.

6. Apply toner to face in order to minimise pore size. And apply cream to whole face.

It takes awhile for the redness to calm down, so I suggest don't do this before leaving the house. Unless you want to be mistaken for Rudolph... My redness actually went away the next day so be warned.

It is best to carry out extraction a minimum interval of one month. The longer the interval the better. But of course the frequency depends on your condition.

Discovery World

As a sufferer of frequent runny nose, I always have a sore nose tip. Ontop of this, I accidentally scrubbed too hard with my face sponge yesterday. So when I saw the Balm,  I thought I would give it a go. At this point, my nose was pretty painful. The pain went away after applying it, it also meant to help to moisturise dry skin. It's good but it's not a miracle worker, so I'd say it's on the same level as Vaseline. Considering it's really just petroleum, I was expecting a little more, maybe calming affects etc but for £1.29 I think it will be handy during winter.
Kleenex Balm

Most people's beauty woes consist of acne, blackheads, blemishes, dry skin etc, so after hearing about  a definite way to get rid of blackheads, I jumped on this magical device bandwagon, It's actually a torture looking device by Tweezerman, with double ended loops. Using the longer side, pressing hard on areas with blackheads, the gunk will come out. I still have yet to try this. It's advised before using the product, you should have open pores ( from hot towels pressing on area, or hot shower etc) in order to maximise efficiency. All I am wishing for is that the blackheads will come out!
