Unique Beads

I was recently contacted by a small online business by the name Unique Beads, asking if id like to share some of their jewels with you. I must admit I get asked this a fair bit but its rare that I accept, but after I clicked on their little link, I fell in love with these cross bracelets. 

I actually posted these on Instagram and had quite a few people contact me and ask where they were from...well now you know.

These bracelets also come in other colours and are only £5 for the standard shade and £6 for the mix, or you can bagsy the set for £22

Im also loving this one which is also £5

If your a lover of small beads that make a big impact and bracelet stacking, you really should check out their site.

And if anything catches your eye they were also kind enough to give you lovely lot 15% off if you enter BEAUTYANDTHEBLOG23 at the checkout.

Let me know if you too will be owning these cross bracelets in about 20 seconds time! haha

I was recently invited to the party which I sadly could not attend, yes I was upset but I was even more distraught after I had taken a look at their site. I had to share the little treasures I found!!! Above is just a selection of cute/badass affordable shoes that they have pimping out their site. I love how the bottom two are very Sam Edelman/Louboutin esque!

I think I have just found a new site to feed my shoe addiction....

You can checkout Nelly HERE

Moustache Nails

When beauty bloggers get bored what do they do, they search the interwebs for nail art-spiration in hope for something cute that they just might be able to create a post from... well that's what I do anyway!

I was getting a bit bored of my nails so searched the net for something cute yet basic to spice things up a little. I saw a lot of pictures of tiny moustaches and decided I would give it a whirl myself and this is the finished result.

The moustache is easy to create, I used a black nail art pen but if you want to cheat just use black liquid liner.

I used YSL Beige Leger as my base colour, this shade is from their most recent La Laque Couture collection, which includes 30 timeless shades to represent the couture legacy. If your a fan of YSL nail polish I really would check out the collection as they have some amazing colours, this particular shade can be found HERE

I used to do quite a few nail posts in the past, I think I may start dabbling back in that area again...

So what do you guys think on these teeny moustaches, cut no....

Foxy Locks

So some time ago now I was sent some Foxy Locks extensions, so long ago now in  fact that my hair colour has changed so I'm reviewing the second pair I own, which I actually bought myself.

I was originally sent a Deluxe (£74.00, 160g of hair) set in #2 Darkest brown  which you can see me sporting in this video HERE ,    the ones you can see pictured above are the Deluxe set in #6 Chestnut brown. If you have quite thick hair like myself I do advise that if you plan on investing in a set of these extensions, the deluxe set is the way to go, the hair is 20" long but can be trimmed down to your desired length. As you can also see they are a perfect match to my current hair colour ( I don't know what this is people! I coloured my hair blond, hated it so dyed it brown and when I washed my hair this it what happened lol) I'm so in love with them its a joke, they are thick, shiny and very easy to style, and I love the fact that when you take them out the packet, they have a fresh blunt cut so your hair looks stupid healthy.

You can probably tell that I love these seen as I purchased another pair myself, but that aside I can honestly vouch for their durability because I put my first pair through their paces. Like I said a few months back I went from dark brown locks, to blond and so did my extensions.

.... As you can see they are still in perfect condition. I stayed blond for about 3 days before I hated it and went back to brunette as did my extensions haha! they were still in good nick but all that bleaching and colouring did cause them to have the odd split end, but nothing blatantly noticeable. I still wore them but as I washed my hair the colour started changing so I decided to invest in another pair rather than colouring my extension yet again to a colour I probably couldn't match.

Iv washed them a bunch of times, the key to this is make sure you use a deep conditioner. You can let them air dry but I like to blow dry mine for that little bit of added shine. Hairspray is not your friend when wearing any form of hair extensions, it dries them out and makes them gather, so if you have to use it, do so sparingly.

I hope I haven't left anything out, If I have feel free to ask any questions. I have linked all the colour and the site within the post but for those that may have missed it, click HERE

Oh I'm also on Instagram now people - beautyandtheblog
