“Aaaaaaaaaah! I broke a nail!” I hear this all the time, but can’t ever relate because when I break nails, it’s usually the metal ones.

My nails always have a layer of gel, which makes them harder to chip. However, a secret of mine is that I use Barielle’s nail strengthener cream.

It costs less than a tenner and you can pick it up from Amazon, where it’s received rave reviews!

If you want “tough as nails” nails, get yourself some of this stuff!

This is a CREAM (which is better than polish). I can only Polish one hand. That, right there, is another reason why I get my nails “done” – as opposed to do them myself.

Supplements? I wish! I get some pretty bad side effects so it’ll be creams FOR LIFE!

Conditioning, revitalising and beautifying, RevitaBrow Advanced enhances the look of even sparse, over-plucked eyebrows with dramatic – but believable – effect. Starring a proprietary blend of scientifically-advanced technology and natural botanicals, this daily treatment promotes strand strength, resilience and suppleness – minimising likelihood of breakage, and addressing the visual signs of eyebrow ageing, stress and fragility. High impact BioPeptin Complex – a cocktail of peptides and botanicals – saturates each hair with moisture, while the convenient doe-foot applicator permits fast and precise application (men can also use it to enhance the appearance of sideburns, moustaches and beards); just apply directly along clean, dry eyebrows every morning or evening, and allow to dry thoroughly before applying any pencil or pomade. Et voila!

Howdy partners!

I’m back for the second time in one day to bring you a review on RevitaLash – a lash growing and lengthening conditioner (which I’d researched in detail before purchasing).

The story behind this product is that a doctor invented this for his wife after she lost all her hair whilst tragically battling cancer.

What is RevitaLash?

This is a natural conditioner that regrows the lashes and lengthens those already there…

How does it work?

You apply it like mascara or lash primer (twice a day) and watch your lashes grow and/or get longer over time.

Those who know me in real life know that I have pretty lengthy lashes, but they’ve been getting quite patchy recently (even though I’ve never worn fake lashes).

So, I’ve been on the lookout to lengthen my lashes and grow new ones in place of the gaps…

I bought it via Amazon for £45. (I know!) But, in my mind – it costs around the same for an LVL treatment which you do once and can’t maintain.

Whereas, with RevitaLash, you can apply it as many times as you want – and it’s a gradual, more natural treatment.

I have booked an LVL treatment for next week, but I am reluctant to actually get it done as I’ve read quite a lot of reviews of those who get it done who say some lashes fall out.

I’m notorious for booking appointments for stuff like this and never going through with it out of nerves and paranoia from reading bad reviews online.

The fact that people have mentioned their lashes have fallen off is the main reason why I’ve never tinted, applied false or even curled my lashes… I am scared as heck! My lashes are my most prized feature.

I’m one of those people that literally just lets them exist on my face for as long as they like, and when one falls on my cheek, it’s usually my mum who picks it up and asks me to “‘make a wish!” …

Alas, I’ve made so many wishes on so many lashes that I’m starting to think they were all rogue nostril hairs.

So, I don’t know whether to invest in another RevitaLash bottle – ’cause I did notice a difference, or bite the bullet and get LVL done… It’s the same price and they last relatively the same length of time – one is just more natural and gradual than the other, and is more DIY too.

I love nail art and typically get my nails done twice a month.

I use shallac on my nails and there’s such a wide variety of base colours that I’d tend to choose two on each hand.

However, I’ve recently discovered an awesome place that does incredible nail art on shellac nails and the work they do is something else entirely!

There’s a range of nail designs on their Instagram: @BeautyBoxNW5.

Here are a few of my favourites:

If you’re in London and want to get your nails done, pay them a visit. You won’t regret it…

Hello!

Eye believe in miracles… Creamy miracles!

Yes, that’s right… Eye cream/creme review time.

It’s Friday, the day to go out on the town after work… So, here’s a great tip. Look awake past 6pm by applying eye cream!

My eye cream of choice is by Yves Rocher. I love Yves Rocher. A bit like Rocha John Rocha but not because it’s Yves Rocher.

Your favourite day cream … improved version!

Its rich formula releases the ideal dosage of oils beneficial to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and nourish the skin. Your skin is so soft, smooth and well hydrated throughout the day.

Creamy AF! Look woke. Stay woke. Apply cream under the eyes. It helps with dark circles and in my case: eyebags. I’ve got two of those. PARDON?

So, there you go. It helps with wrinkles and eye bags, oh and it keeps you woker than a resident of Woking, U.K.

Speaking of nights out, you can apply this in the day, but they have a night cream too.

My rating? 5 starz ’cause I heard Jay Z uses it.

ICYMI: … #MyHairDares!

Aloha! Welcome to another post, and this time it’s the turn of a #SponsoredAd! My friends over at Gold Collagen sent me some of their new-ish Gold Collagen HairLift shot supplements to try, but I’ve only got round to trying and reviewing! It has been HELLA busy on my end, my job means I wasn’t able to keep up with my blog until now,,, But I’ve taken a well needed break, and I’ll be using the rest of my break to blog consistently – for now.

What do Gold Collagen say?

Full, vibrant and healthy hair puts an extra spring in your step, wherever you go.
The makers of the UK’s original liquid beauty supplement developed a specific formulation to support healthy hair growth.
It contains Hydrolysed Collagen, Hydrolysed Keratin, Biotin, Amla, Nettle, Rosemary, Pantothenic Acid, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin E and more.

  • Nourishes hair from within 1Helps maintain healthy hair 1Helps support skin 2 and nails 3Drink one bottle a day, stop worrying about bad hair days and start turning heads.

First impressions:

I’ve tried Gold Collagen in the past and have always been pleasantly surprised. I’m a regular skin supplement drinker and cannot live without it. But, this isn’t about the skin one, is it? Oh no! This post is strictly about the HairLift and how it turned ‘Mii into Beyonce’s answer to ‘Becky with the Good Hair’ (with a hint of class and decorum).

HairLift is well packaged, like all other Gold Collagen products. Each shot bottle is made of glass and comes packaged inside a white and gold box. It looks very posh, and for the price you’d pay for a 30 Day supply, it’s well worth it.

Second Impressions:

Let’s get down to the taste… Fruity. It tastes delicious, as do all their previous supplements. The thing I love most is that it doesn’t taste medicinal, even though it actually is, (for the hair, skin and nails at least)! That’s right, Gold Collagen’s HairLift has added benefits for skin and nails too, in keeping with with the Gold Collagen brand.

Third Impression:

My hair dared me to try it,  I tried it – and saw results. My curls look bouncier than ever, the overall feel of my hair is softer, and it’s easier to maintain. It also looks glossier too. Honestly, the results post 30 Days are very noticeable. I will be continuing, I’ll be keeping it as part of my morning regimen.

Thanks, Gold Collagen for sending these over, I absolutely LOVED them. I don’t even know why I have to write this, but I’ll do it anyway, these thoughts are 100% my own. This is an honest post.I’ve even posted about their products before, unsponsored. So, THERE!

Cost: £79.98 for a 30-day supply

Rating: 4.5*

I dropped .5 because I think the overall RRP is expensive. However, as I’ve said, the taste, results and packaging are well worth the price.
