Astrid & Miyu...If you don't know you need to get to know (after you read my post of course), their jewellery Is AMAZING! If you are like me and prefer your dainty pendants and delicate pieces then I will not be held accountable for you spending the next half an hour of your life on their site umming and arrhhhing over what you want to purchase.
To make life easier, they have release a secret box..."what's the secret box I hear you ask" well Its a subscription based service that can be cancelled whenever you wish. For £39 including free UK & EU delivery you will receive jewellery and surprise treats worth twice the value which are hand picked and selected for you based on a mini style survey you fill out one subscribed.
These pieces were selected for me from the march box, I also received two sample size creams and some fashion tattoos as a little added bonus. These pieces are so me! I just kept gasping when I opened each little pouch.
If your a jewellery lover I definitely think that this service Is one you will fall In love with, and If Its not....well the site alone will become your new addiction.
You can check out Astrid & Miyu HERE and you can find more Information on the secret box HERE
Last order dates for the March box end on the 11th, so get In quick If you want that little special something tailored to your personal style.
Another beauty box I hear you cry...well no not just any beauty box, this one Is tailored to suit the needs of women of colour. There has always been a gap In the market for something like this and I am glad that someone has finally jumped Into that said gap.
Like any other beauty box Glowwbox Is a ran subscription service, It £10 per month plus p&p and contains 4 - 5 beauty related products relating to skincare, haircare or makeup. As you can see from the picture above the products are a mixture of full and trial size.
The box above Is February's box and It contained
Leor- Vanilla bath milk
HELEN E -Nubian pressed powder In plum
Argentum Apothecary - La potion infinie
Nourish - Golden glow illuminating face shimmer
Of course my favourite Is the face shimmer, It reminds me of Macs strobe cream but with a golden hue! I have yet to try out the others, but the plum pressed powder Is screaming out my name.
I would say this months box was actually quite universal product wise, but I can not wait to see what products they showcase In terms of haircare.
You can check out the Glowwbox site HERE for more Info, and Its not too late to grab February's box If your quick!
I hear the word epilate and I Instantly think tweezers yanking hair out of my legs, and In hindsight that Is what It Is...but as technology has moved forward, the process of epilating has become somewhat of a comforting pain.
The Skin Spa Silk Epil 7 Is the first epilator I have ever tried, and Im not sure I would ever need to switch. Considering I'm a newbie, there's so many extra features In this mini device to keep the experience as comfortable as possible. The feature I love the most Is that It can be used In the bath or shower, and we all know that when our pores are open, things become a lot less painful. I also love the exfoliation brush attachment which stimulates and regenerates the skins surface. You can check out a full list of features HERE
I have only used this a handful of times, with the pain getting better with each use, and If I'm honest Its not so bad. My legs are hair free and feeling softer with each use.
This device Is said to be better than wax on short hairs, and better than manual exfoliaton! so maybe those smooth silky legs I'm constantly envying on TV aren't a dream after all.
ghd...a trusted name that has been around In the hair Industry for many years, you hear the name and you already know whatever the tool may be the quality and performance will always deliver and this Vsapphire Styler from the jewel Collection Is no exception. Aside from the gorgeous packaging, this kit also comes complete with a large contrasting coloured paddle brush to aid all your hairstyle needs.
Automatic sleep mode after 30 minutes without use
Advanced ceramic heater technology for smoother, shinier results
Universal voltage for consistent performance when travelling
Smooth black plates with a hint of sparkle for snag-free styling
Contoured plates for easier curls and waves
Extra long 2.7m swivel cord for freedom during styling
Sapphire ghd paddle brush
ghd V sapphire straightener
You can also use the styler to create beautiful curls and beachy waves, Its really easy when you know how. Overall I can't fault this styler In any way, Its a lot lighter than your original ghd, and I suppose my only gripe would be that you can't adjust the temperature, but they are a lot prettier to look at than the usual black pair.
So people are always asking me how I curl my hair, so I thought I would share with you once again how I do It. I honestly don't do anything special other than curl It with My Lee Stafford Chopstick styler (google for stockists) It takes me about 25 min to do my whole head, but that's because I'm pretty used to curling my hair, so the pace I move at Is quite rapid.
Once Its done, It lasts a few days, I just neaten up any areas that I feel need It. There Is a video HEREdetailing all the ins and outs, but aside from being armed with this trust little tool, there's nothing else I do.
The hair I use Is Bleuribbon Virgin Peruvian (here) I honestly adore this hair, I have had It for about 5 months now and the condition Is still second to none.
You can shop any of the Bleuribbon hair collection using code "beautyandtheblog132" and you will receive a cheeky discount.
