Real technique brushes

This will only be a short post because i am at Tom's and i was excited to all tell you about what i purchased  yesterday, I finally have some real technique brushes (I know I'm way behind) the fact that they were expensive put me off a lot but from all the reviews I have seen I really wanted some. At boots it was buy one get one half price so I purchased the core collection brushes and a stipple brush at the same time. I've actually been asking Tom if he knows what each one is for and he said either blusher and eyeshadow, bless his cotton socks! I decided I would explain to him what they are used for so now he is all clued up on the brushes I have, bless his cotton socks! I love that the core collection has come with a case that I can stand up and it has room to put other brushes that I use too, that's such a good selling point for me.

The reason I wanted new brushes was because mine were basically shedding and dead so I thought I would treat myself, I managed to get the stippling brush for £5.99 because boots had a buy one get one half price offer on. I used the brushes this morning and I can notice a big difference in my make up from using my old brushes to my make up now, this is a good difference because my skin looked flawless and less cakey to how it would look before. I'm actually really glad I purchased them yesterday because I'm off out tonight for New Years Eve with Tom and my make up actually looks great for once and I feel confident with how it looks. I hope you all have a wonderful night and don't get too drunk so you can remember it in the morning (unless you would rather not remember it), I'm off now but don't worry I will be blogging in 2014!


My Christmas gifts.

I had a wonderful Christmas I spent it with my family and some of it with tom, then stayed at toms yesterday and had a lovely time with his family. I'm currently blogging from Tom's PC which feels strange because I'm so use to using my laptop/phone/Ipad, but he has better internet connection at his house. I got so many wonderful presents which I wasn't expecting, people are too kind! I actually got a few things from my Christmas wish list which I'm ever so pleased about. You all know two of the presents tom got me (a ring and a necklace) he also got me some my little pony comics, a hello kitty Ipad case and Chloè perfume. 

My lovely friend Catherine got me lots of sweets, a hello kitty DVD /mug set, a zombie poster and kitty socks!!! My sweetheart of a friend Elle sent me a cat jumper and some kitty treats, I have to sort out her present to send because I'm a lazy moo! Toms family members got me kitty earmuffs, soap and glory gift set, a cat mug, a cute purse and jellybeans with a jelly bean bowl. My family got me some gifts which I've wanted a while one of them being Lauren Conrad's book beauty, I was so excited to receive it, I also got now that's what I call Disney princess, Disney Pixars brave, Les Misérables soundtrack, fashion the ultimate book of costume and style, genius speaker for my iPhone and the 9 stack shimmer kit by Bellápierre cosmetics (which i will be reviewing sometime soon).

I've tried to mention everything I got but it's hard to remember, I have hardly any room in my bedroom as it is for all this stuff, i've also brought a few things in the Boxing Day sales which are presents to myself!  I've eaten far too much food over Christmas so I probably should have a detox or stop eating so much, oh yes I forgot to mention I've no longer got pink or purple hair, my hair is back to ginger so I'm going to try and embrace my natural colour. I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and I hope your new year is a good one, thank you to all my followers for continuing to follow and read my blog, I love you all!!

Argan oil.

For a while now I have wanted to try out Argan oil because I have heard such good things about it, I had been putting off for a while because it is expensive and I wanted to try it when I could get it cheaper to see how well it worked for me. I was walking around Buyolgy in Par and came across some Argan oil leave in oil for when hair is wet, as soon as I saw the price (£1.79) I had to get some and give it a go. I've been using it over a week now and I've noticed such a difference in the condition of my hair, it's shiny, less fizzy and doesn't looked as damaged as it normally it does. 

After using the leave in oil I really wanted to try the conditioner so when I saw it for £1 along with Argan oil hair mask I immediately purchased them. First I tried the hair mask which did make my pink hair fade a bit but left it soft and I had beautiful wavy curls. Then the next time I washed my hair I mixed my directions dye with my argan oil conditioner which left it feeling and looking the same as the mask, my only problem is of I use the conditioner and then the leave in oil after washing off the conditioner (the conditioner is quiet thick as is the mask) my hair will get too greasy so now I don't have to use so much leave in oil as I did when I first used it. Once i have put the oil in my damp/wet hair i like to brush it through with my tangle teezer I find it easier then a normal hair brush. 

I really recommend Argan oil for those who dye/bleach their hair or those who have curly hair like me, it doesn't smell bad either in fact my boyfriend loves the smell of it! I always tell people to get a sample of a product before buying the full size because it may not work for you and you would of wasted money on that product, but those of you in the UK who would like to try Argan oil and don't want to pay out £12+ get down to Asda and try the conditioner and mask for £1 each, i'm not sure where else will do the actual leave in oil cheap like i got mine unless you have a Buyolgy near you.
