Can't Wait to See What Arrives

Is it going to be these?

I can't wait to see what I get from @ChandraVorhies as a surprise order



An Addition To My Bow

Just before the end of the year last year I joined Jamberry the nail gel and wrap company which supply people with fantastic wraps and gels to do themselves rather than going to a salon. I now provide the finished looks as well as just make-up. I can provide everything you need to look your best or either just the make-up/nails depending on what you need.

I am going to be doing lives in not my usual surroundings as I think that has been part of the problem because I don't feel comfortable recording at home

Love and Peace



Sparkling Surprise

Well as I said I was going to post up about having my nails done at my local Superdrug and I was pleasantly surprised with the treatment I was given.

You do your shopping as normal and pay for the treatment that you require before going to the treatment area. I had gel nails reapplied after being done somewhere else previously. The nail technician was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly.

She had to get my previous gel off which took quite a lot of time. This was because rather than using the electronic file to roughen the gel she used a proper nail file. Then with my nails covered in foil with cotton pads on each finger I had time to choose the colour/colours that I wanted.

The foil wraps to remove the gel is very clever in the sense that the cotton pad is attached to the foil. To which the technician soaked the pad with remover. The company the technician is trained by is #Orly which is a really well known company that looks after your nails and hands.

After this was done she then buffed my nails with a manual buffer. I have never had my nails buffer so well as I did at the nail bar in my local Superdrug. Then the nail gel was applied in the normal way.

As a mum I asked what age when it would be able to do for my daughter and the technician said 16 as everything is still developing however a standard nail polish could be applied.

She also mentioned the aftercare for my own nails in which she said that I mustn't wash up or wash my hair for 24 hours as the gel is still setting internally and to obviously put cuticle oil on daily.

The pictures above are the result of my treatment and I absolutely love it. 
I would really recommend that you check out your local store and see what they do as mine is also in the process of doing eyebrow and lash treatments. 
Thank you Roo for doing my nails. I certainly will be back 

I give the place 5/5



Bespoke boxes

Who loves getting surprise boxes each month ? I know I certainly do.

Well being a #younique presenter I don't need makeup in the surprise box so I asked a friend of mine #DebbieLynes if she does them and she said yes she does. The minimum amount is £5 with a £3 making it £8. There are 3 sizes of boxes that she does  £5, £10 and £15. The products she uses are Simply Scented, Jamberry and a few unique products that she has in.

So for my first box came a few days ago and I absolutely love it.  She sent me various different scents as both as soya waxes and sizzles. These include Drumstick lollipop smell, Love Heart sweets which are named Candy Hearts to avoid copyright infringement, Banana, Strawberry and Berry Burst, just to name a few.

The Drumstick one smells like the old style Drumstick lollipop and is one of my all-time favourites. In the box she also sent me a room and linen spray of White Musk which is gorgeous and subtle. She included a small bag of chocolate ladybugs with caramel centres and a weekly planner that you tear off as you go.
From her Jamberry business she sent me a gorgeous half set of wraps and a nail file and a cuticle stick and alcohol wipe to clean your nails with before applying the wraps.

The box I ordered was a £15 one and for that price I think what is included is amazing and so worth the value. 

My little girl is into makeup and other girly things so I asked if Debbie could do a box specially for little girls and she said yes. I won't know what is in the box as it's designed specifically for a little girl as a monthly treat . The £5 box is what she is having as is perfect for pocket money and i said that I would pay for the postage. If you want to know more about these please contact #DebbieLynes on If you want to see her jamberry store check it out
And her other store is Folkestone gifts galore on Facebook as a private page which you can  ask to join
