This is an appreciation post for my new eyebrow lady. I don’t actually know her name yet, therefore she will remain anonymous for the time being, but what a legend she is.
I’ve been to see her twice thus far because my last eyebrow lady seems to be going on 6 month holidays twice a year! Lucky babe! I mean, how else would you explain never being in your place of work without a reason? I went to her salon on several ocassions in the space of 4-6 months and she was constantly “off on holiday”. She took my eyebrow game with her to Lanzarote and left me with Epping Forest growing under my forehead and above my eye. 😭
This post isn’t about my old eyebrow lady (who by the way is very sweet and lovely – albeit selfish! 😂).
My new eyebrow lady though – amazing. I’ve been to see her twice. The first time she saw me, she was like “OMG!” I was like: “tell me about it, girlfriend!” Then she says: “do you not have one regular eyebrow lady? Your eyebrows seem to be all over the place…” I could’ve got offended by that comment, but it takes a lot to get me offended so I just replied with: “does it LOOK LIKE I DO?” – in a more sincere tone. The cheeky so-and-so! Anyway, she tried pulling it back by saying: “no, it’s just there’ve been some chunks taken out in the top and bottom.” FML! Never tweeze them yoursleves unless you’re a pro, girls! I was so worried that she wouldn’t be able to fix it, but I’d worn a fringe for much of the year anyway that I could just put it down to cover what lay beneath…
Cut a longer than this story short (I could go on forever, but I’ll spare you because it’s Christmas, Hannukah and almost the New Year), she sorted my eyebrows out there and then, HURRAY! I loved what I saw then so much that I pulled my ‘at a really annoying length-stage’ fringe back and enjoyed showing off my new stronger than ever ‘eyebrow game’ whilst also getting some much anticipated (and needed) fresh air to my previously suffocated forehead pores.
The second time I saw her, today, she sorted them out even more as the “missing chunks” had started growing. YAY for hair growth in the right places! I love how feathered they look. You can see each hair strand by strand. 😍
*will upload a photo later when I look less like Frankenstein’s wife 1000 times divorced instead of removed*
My eyebrow lady is boss. She better not go on holiday or else I’m going with her – the beach. I legit will just invite myself and when I see her I’ll just shout: “fancy seeing you here *insert name here*, want to do my eyebrows here on the sun-lounger as we sip on some pina coladas and catch a golden glow or two?”
I am thinking of revamping Beauty Bae in time for 2017. Ideally, I’d like to start by changing the theme (web design) of this site along with the logo. However, I’m struggling to come up with ideas… That’s where YOU come in!
Anyone care to offer me some advice? What would YOU like to see on Beauty Bae? How can I improve it for your viewing (…reading) pleasure?
This could be anything from suggestions on how to make the logo or web design/theme look better to new ideas for posts or topics.
Get in touch with me via Facebook, Twitter,YouTube, Snapchat/Instagram: @miamii.mansour or here in the comments section below and share your thoughts.
Above all, Beauty Bae is for YOU! With that in mind – it’ll be good to know what YOU want to see more (or less) of, and how you’d want this blog to look.
Have a good rest of 2016 (or try to, anyway). I know it’s hard, but don’t let the sudden and shocking passing of icons get you down too much. It’s been an awful year on the face of it, but there are plenty of blessings in our lives that outweigh the crap that’s occurring around us… RIP to all the greats.
If you follow my blog consequtively, you’d know that I blogged about SugarBearHair earlier on in the year…
Now, I live in the U.K. and I haven’t got the money to spend on extortionate international shipping costs just to have something shipped from the States to here!
So, although I agree that SugarBearHair worked for me, it’s not feasible to keep purchasing it from America. Instead, I’ve got my hands on the next best thing… HairBurst Hearts.
Hairburst Chewable Gummies are an easy way to ensure you are taking the essential vitamins to maintain healthy, faster hair growth. We created this product for people who find it hard to swallow tablets. So now everyone can have the benefits that hairburst adds to your body. The yummy strawberry and blackcurrant flavour will want you taking more than just 2 tablets per day but please stick to the recommended 2 per day.
Hairburst provides a different approach to hair maintenance, a professional product that works from the inside out. The tasty new way to improve your hair.
Hairburst is designed to combat the negative impact of poor nutrition, hair products, age and genetics so start your journey with hairburst today and fall in love with your hair.
These strawberry flavoured chewy hair supplements aren’t bad. They are used by some of the Made in Chelsea stars and have been proven to grow and strengthen the hair – leaving strong, glossy and healthy tresses.
I ventured into Holland and Barrett, my favourite shop on the high street, and purchased these bad boys when they were on ‘buy one and get the other half price’. I love a good bargain and have yet to see a bad one…
I’ve been using them for a month now and I can actually confirm that my hair has grown a little. I mean, split ends doesn’t and will never take away from the fact that it’s grown, right?
I’m going to be honest, if I hadn’t had tried SugarBearHair, I wouldn’t know what to compare these (HairBurst) to, so I probably would’ve said they taste good. However, when you’ve had a taste of something good, you won’t want to go back to the mediocre, would you? HairBurst don’t taste bad as such, kinda like powdered strawberry… They’re just not as delicious as SugaBearHair.
The packaging of HairBurst is pretty cute but it’s no SugarBearHair. The mane things I love about HairBurst (oh, come on!) is the fact that it’s cheaper than SugarBearHair, is heart shaped (I love love) and shows slight results for the duration that I used it.
According to the HairBurst website, the HairBurst tablets/capsules (in white packaging) used in conjunction with the brand’s shampoo and conditioner gives better and faster results. So, if you’re in need of a faster and better way to grow your hair, choose that route instead.
Still, taking this all into account, if you get the opportunity to purchase SugarBearHair’s gummies over HairBurst chews, take it because I still believe they’re better. With SugarBearHair, I noticed more of a difference in hair growth, the taste of the blueberries and creaminess of the gummy bears together with the light blue (my favourite colour) ribbon around the lid makes it my winner.
However, by all means try both and let me know your thoughts. Happy hair growing (even though I’m going to sadly be getting mine cut in the New Year).
Holland & Barrett is my home away from home. I wouldn’t be surprised if I looked at my finances and realised that 95% of my monies per month went to Holland & Barrett. It’s like a retail charity that I sponsor. I’m paying for good health. I’m paying for organic produce. I’m paying for quality. So, yeah… I suppose it is a charity in a weird non-charity sort of way. 😆😂 (I’m not drunk, honest!)
Holland & Barrett stock Alive fruit vitamin chews. There are some for children, men and women. Each vitamin is packed with vitamins and nutrients that help with the healthy growth of its target market. For instance, in this instance, Women’s ones (which I purchased believe it or not) include Vitamins C, B6, B12 & Biotin for normal energy release and Vitamin D for normal bones as well as their unique dried blend of 26 fruits and vegetables.
All of the above ingredients aid to boost us ladies’ energy levels. I must admit that in Winter, my energy levels and the immune system drops considerably. However, since taking two of these a day, I’m a lot more energetic and feel a lot better in myself. My hair has grown too (albeit split ends, we can’t win ’em all…)
So – get yours tomorrow or after the Christmas and New Year celebrations, you won’t be disappointed. 💪
P.S. these soft chews do not contain gluten, soya, dairy, yeast, artificial flavours, colours or preservatives and are suitable for vegetarians.
