My Pamper Routine

AD | Hello beautiful's! This blog post has been requested so much since starting this new blog so I thought I best get around to doing it. I'm doing to do it in steps as I think that will be a little bit more explained than just saying what products I use.

MUA Nail Varnishes | Review

Hello beautiful's! I hope you’re all having a wonderful week. This is just going to be a really small mini review on the MUA Nail Varnishes.

As many people know already I really like the MUA products (the eye shadows are awesome!) but I wasn’t too excited about the nail vanishes after trying them. I felt that the colour was pretty thin and came off really easy, so I looked like I had chipped nails the same day I’ve done them. The packaging isn’t great either, the labels wear off pretty easy and I haven’t actually done anything much with the polish to make the silver writing come off.

TMI Q&A! [Part 2]

If you want to read Part 1 of my TMI Questions, you can do so by clicking here
I done one of these blog posts on my own blog a really long time ago (almost three years ago) as I kept getting the more intimate personal questions from people, and to be honest I've always got them type of questions but I've never included them in a Q&A since then because, well you don't really want the question of public hair right after a question like "what is your favourite lip gloss?" if you know what I mean.

My Autumn & Winter Goals | 2015

Hello my lovelies! First things first; go and grab yourself a warm drink, some munchies and get comfortable because this blog is going to be a little long.

I will be completely honest, I hate winter. I hate the cold, the rainy, and the dullness - it makes me feel miserable. But things are different this year, I'm not sure why honestly but I am actually excited for the autumn and winter time; cosy booties, jumpers and cardigans, warm drinks, candles, home cooking, movie nights, crisp air, Halloween and Christmas. Plus this year on 12th December is going to be Phil and my first year wedding anniversary and it will be so nice to just relax and not have the stress building up that we have had over the past two years.

Advance Techniques Oxygenating Scalp Treatment | Review

I wanted to a review on Advance Techniques Oxygenating Scalp Treatment because it's such a good product. If you don’t know this ready (and you probably do as I’ve asked about this so many times) since dying my hair so many times and probably because I have eczema as well which can get pretty bad. And anyone who has eczema themselves knows how much it can be to reveal an itch, more so one on your head. But if you’re out socially and itching your head can be very embarrassing – especially to us girls! – but I now have really dry hair and my scalp is always run of dandruff – which I hate! I’ve tried so many products from high and low-end companies and still haven’t found a product that is an amazing 10/10.

AD | I've wanted to do a review on the Rimmel London Fix & Perfect Pro Primer in 002 for ages but wanted to really use all the product up first so I have a good idea about it before I gave it a good review.

Back To School Makeup

AD | It's September - wow! Where has this year gone? Its unbelievable, but exciting. September means lots of things; Autumn, Halloween time, crisp mornings, cold cosy nights, hats and scarf's, warm drinks, good books, soft fluffy socks, toffee apples, proper English cooked meals, riding boots, pumpkins... and summer coming to an end. Summer coming to an end means going back to school, and a lot of people hate that so much. 

I hated school so much. I went to a very strict Catholic all girls school ran by nuns, and it was very intimidating when I first started there, I was scared, but the more the years went on I made some good friends and that was mainly because I stepped outside of my comfort zone which I do recommend everyone does at least once at school as it may surprise you. 

This blog post is going to be my view on back to school make up. I was never aloud to wear make up in my high school (but I naughtily did) so this is what I used to wear;

Exfoliating Hair Mask | DIY

This is a really quick and easy blog post about how you can do a Do It Yourself Exfoliating Hair Mask on your hair from only two items instead of paying loads of money for a designer brand one. It honestly works just the same! 

Mix two table spoons of brown sugar with one table spoon of olive oil, massage into hair, leave for three minutes, rinse and wash. It's that easy! 

With love, Alisha Valerie. x

Barry M Cisel Cheeks Contour Kit | Review

I will be honest, I only bought this because I was in Boots buying paracetamol for my back pain and was browsing, seen this and realised I didn't own it - which shocked me as I honestly adore Barry M products. 

Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit provides the perfect tools to shape and define your natural bone structure. It's an awesome travel-sized palette includes a light powder to highlight, a bronzer to warm, and a dark powder to sculpt for a perfectly enhanced appearance. This really is a must have in any make up bag!
