Wardrobe Envy

At home I imagined turning my "cupboard of doom" which is packed full of folders, teddies and stuff into a perfectly organised "wardrobe of wonder." I never quite managed the transformation before I headed back to Edinburgh. In my flat I've got a wardrobe which acts as a home for my clothes for 6months but it's perfect. Yet again I've logged onto weheartit to have major envy and lust over the amazing wardrobes.













Babyliss Wave Envy

Babyliss Wave Envy

RRP £49.99 available in Boots, Currys and Argos


Easily create gorgeous, beach-like waves with the BaByliss Wave Envy styler. If you’ve always had straight hair and envied those with beautiful wavy locks, then you’ve probably spent hours using traditional curling tongs and rollers, trying--without great success--to create that natural, wavy look. The Wave Envy takes the struggle out of this process. You simply press the hair between the ceramic plate and barrels to create a beautifully natural look. The technique is so quick and easy and the results are longlasting. Just don’t be surprised if your new wavy hairdo becomes the envy of all your friends.”






The Babyliss Wave Envy has...

  1. A top temperature of 200°c 
  2. Three heat settings for different hair types 
  3. Ultra-fast heat up - takes less than 60 seconds I reckon.
  4. Ceramic plate and barrels
  5. 2.5m salon style swivel cord
  6. Cool tip for safety and ease of use (which is very useful for avoiding burning your fingers!!)
  7. Heat protection mat
  8.  3 Year Guarantee
  • I’m really impressed by how easy it is to use. There was no disasters trying it out, I unpackaged it, sectioned off my hair and I was good to go. My hair is really thick and quite long so divides into 3 sections and takes less than 20minutes to do.
  • The waves hold really well. I've styled my hair using the wave envy 3 or 4 times now and have never had to use any hairspray or products afterwards to hold the style. I've been able to sleep on my hair and get up and go without having to touch it up at all. It's an easy, hassle free way of maintaining a gorgeous look.
  • The style is extremely versatile. I've worn my hair wavy for both nights out and for chilled out days and received loads of complements.

This is my hair on a night out on day 3. I love that the waves don't take away any length from my hair and still looks shiny and frizz-free.

This is my hair today, just after I styled it. I tend not to use the wave envy on my fringe as I just don't suit it but it's quite easy to gently wave it so that it blends in. I've just pinned as section to the side using kirby grips and to add a bit of volume. 





New Room Inspiration

Hey Girls,

This Thursday I'm moving into my new flat. The plan for today is to get a move on with my packing but I've been slightly distracted by weheartit looking for inspiration on how to decorate my new room.

Here's a couple of pictures of my blank canvas and a selection of pictures that have caught my eye on weheartit.


















Website Recommendation; Zentosa.com

It was one of my best friend's birthdays at the beginning of January and I had a slight panic on boxing day when I realised that I hadn't bought her anything yet. I searched the internet for inspiration and decided jewellery would be perfect for her. I had a quite google and landed on the Zentosa website.




I was tempted to buy her something from the Disney Couture range but came to the conclusion that was more suited to me and that Zentosa had the perfect jewellery from the Sex and the City range. She's a big fan of the film and they had some lovely necklaces. I narrowed my choice down to 3.


 



I loved the cocktail glass pendant but didn't think the writing on the card would go down too well with her boyfriend so chose the diamond shaped pendant which cost only £12 down from £44!!


Not only was I impressed by the range on the website and the fantastic price, I was amazed by their delivery. I made a few orders on Boxing Day and none arrived before New Year... except Zentosa's! It landed on my front door mat on the 28th of December. It was also perfectly packaged in a small card box and a cute black gift bag.


I'm gutted that I forgot to take a picture of it  before wrapping it up but I do have a snap of it wrapped up with the birthday card. I used the cardboard box and filled it with shredded tissue paper and hid the necklace and gift bag inside.




Since having such a good experience I've been tempted to make a purchase for myself, all I have to do now is choose what! I'm definitely loving the Disney Couture bracelets and earrings; at a good price too.
