Songs to cry to.

add a caption

Hello everyone!

Sorry for the depressing title. This is going to be a depressing post. It's been one of those days. Plus it's Valentines Day. Personally, I'm not bothered about being single today, but as the internet decided if you're single it's trendy to be depressed on the 14th , I decided to join it.

Sometimes, hopefully not all the time, you just need a good cry, so I've made a playlist of cheesy pop songs that you can listen to when you want to sit in your room, eat ice-cream from the tub (never done it personally, but it looks fun.), and be a sobbing mess for an hour or two. Have fun gals.

Breath Me by Sia

Let Her Go by Passenger

The Only Exception by Paramore

Someone Like You by Adele

Explosions by Ellie Goulding

Bad Day by Daniel Powter

Say Something by A Great Big World ft. Christine Aguilera

Skyscraper by Demi Levato

Fix You by Coldplay

Skinny Love by Birdy

Wake Me Up by Ed Sheeran

Mad World by Roland Orzabal

And once you've finished I want you to listen to this song.

 I hope you've enjoyed this post, leave below other sad song suggestions please! I love a good crying session...

Supplements That Make You Beautiful?

Hello everyone!

You are probably here because you read the title and thought, wait what?

It's a bold statement to make and I'm not convinced. 
Beautify Me Vitamin Complex by Inner Me just by the name claims to do so though! 

I first heard of these on a UK Television show called 'Dragon's Den' and I was intrigued so I was beyond excited when these arrived in a 'Love Me Beauty' Box a while ago and couldn't wait to give it a try.

You take two capsules a day for 2 weeks and claims to be good for your skin as well as generating cell growth in hair and nails. Basically it makes them grow stronger and faster.

The first thing I was drawn to was the packaging. How cool is it? It has two pull out trays and it just looks so nice compared to your average glass jar  of capsules that I usually associate supplements with. 

In terms of effectiveness, it did work , but I am doubtful that it is worth the RRP of £15. For me that is a ridiculous amount of money to pay for supplements will only last two weeks...

I saw a small amount of hair growth and my nails did get a bit longer and definitely stronger. My skin was where I saw a massive improvement. Almost overnight all my spots practically vanished! Unfortunately though after the course was over they came back and I didn't want to spend any money on getting more as it is very pricey.

Overall I did notice a difference with this and I really did like it but in all honesty, I'm sure you could find less expensive supplements that do the same job because I feel like you are paying for the packaging with this one! I love the ethics of the company and if you are after a quick fix for your skin and nails this might be for you.

I hope you enjoyed this post :)
See you soon!

Tips For Going To The Hairdressers.

Hello Everyone!

Today I went to the hairdressers! I now have a long-side-fringe-thingy going on and I love it. Saying that though it was probably the most unpleasant hairdressing experience I've ever had. 

My stylists idea of a head massage was like being tortured- I genuinely thought she was pulling my hair out. The customer service was rubbish, she was clearly more focused on getting it done than making sure I was happy with the end result. Plus the salon was freezing, I was pretty surprised a penguin didn't walk in to get it's feathers manicured.

So today I thought I'd give some tips for going to the hairdressers so that you (hopefully) don't have the same experience that I did.

-Bring Pictures

I know, it's obvious but giving your hairdresser an idea of what you want is always a good shout. My hair inspiration is Fluer De Force-her hair is stunning. I also love Jennifer Aniston's hair. I've never had a haircut that I'm unhappy with and I think bringing in images of looks I like is the reason why.

Love makeup
-Look Your Best

I learnt this the hard way last year when I sat in the chair for 2 hours with no makeup on, with my oldest clothes on staring at myself in the mirror. This combined with the worst lighting in existence left me feeling very underwhelmed as I left the salon with my new hair. Look your best so you can walk out the door feeling like a supermodel flicking your beautiful, freshly-cut hair as it flows behind you in the gentle breeze. Lovely.

-Bring Snacks

Especially if you are going to be at the salon for more than an hour, you may get peckish. Bring some dried food or some nuts if you want to be healthy although let's be real here, if it was me I would bring chocolate.

-If you aren't happy, say.

There is nothing worse than going home unhappy with your hair- you have payed good money for it and spent time getting it done. Think of it as buying something and realizing it's broken, you wouldn't keep it, you would get your money back or ask for a replacement. It's the same with hair. It might be awkward but you need to make sure you are satisfied with it. Also, your stylist would much rather have you like it than have you tell people you are unhappy with it, it's bad for business.

Also as a side note, I would always ask for a slightly shorter cut than you were planning. I find that it always seems shorter in the salon but after a while there doesn't seem to be much of a difference. Plus it saves you having to come back for a while.

I really hope you enjoyed reading this post! I would love to know any of your tips or experiences of the hairdressers!

See you soon x
