Revlon Double Twist Mascara Launch Event

The Friday before I went to New York I was kindly invited to The Revlon Event to launch their new Double Twist mascara held at the Dorchester Hotel in Mayfair. When I arrived at the hotel it was beautifully decorated and felt very Xmasey. I also felt underdressed as everyone was wearing fur, cocktail dresses/suits so I was relieved when our gathering was in the bar which had a more relaxed atmosphere.

I had a lovely afternoon and was nice to meet other bloggers. Alessandra from Revlon talked through the history of Revlon and ideas and concepts behind the new products. Christian Loubotion is a fan of revlon and his famous red soles were inspired by revlon red nailpolish - so im dying to try out Revlon Red as it looks like the perfect red!

We had a specially designed red and black cocktail which was gorgeous, dainty sandwiches, cakes, scones with jam and cream and Champagne. The staff were so kind and boxed up the leftover cakes to take away (although mine didn’t survive the train journey home :()

We were presented with goody bags which included….A case of Dorchester Tea, Revlon Pedicure set (similar to the Ped Egg but pink!); makeup brushes, sweets, nail polishes, lipsticks, eye shadow quad, several tubes of foundation and not forgetting the new Revlon Double Twist Mascara! I was so pleased to recieve a Cherrys in the snow nail polish and matching lipstick as its my favourite revlon shade.
I was given a couple of tubes of darker shade foundations that isn’t suitable for my skin tone so I thought I would do a giveaway to my lovely followers. Also stay tuned for a review of the products once I’ve had chance to properly try them out!

I would like to thank the girls at Revlon for organising such a wonderful afternoon, it was a nice treat and great to feel appreciated.

Hair Growth Experiment

Apparantly hair grows around 1.5 inches every month, although my fringe grows out so quick i never see much difference in length as my ends tend to go whispy. As of Dec 2009 my hair although cut into different layers measures approx. 29cm and im planning to measure it again in 3 months time and see how much it has grown (may do monthly updates).

In order for my hair to be looking in better condition I have started doing a number of things such as:

1. I have started getting my hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks to get rid of split ends

2. Not dying or bleaching my hair as often and giving my hair a rest (even tho my roots are starting to look terrible as its about 3 months since I last got it coloured!) I am also gradually going darker so it looks more glossy and in better condition (also the roots wont show as badly)

3. I am using less heat on my hair – if im not in a rush I will let my hair dry naturally after washing

4. I am using a mix of good (expensive!) shampoos and conditioners by loreal professional and keratase.

5. I only wash my hair never more than twice a week – my hair doesn’t get greasy and is naturally curly and dry so doesn’t need it.

6. I am also using dry shampoo if my hair is looking a bit dull and slightly greasy inbetween washes.

7. Once a week I use a strethening treatment by either loreal professional or ketatase.

8. I am using a heat protective spray before I straighten

9. Im only using straighteners on my hair after I have first washed it or if I am going out. Sometimes If im just in the house I just tie my hair back and leave it without styling.

10. Using bumpits instead of backcombing.

11. Drinking more water and better diet

12. More excercise

13. Planning to detox in Jan 2010

14. Weekly Deep Treatment

15. Vitamin Supplements and Herbal Tea

Do you have any top tips for making hair get in better condition?

Nailene Non Chip Stick on Nails Review


Hello guys! sorry i havent posted for a week or so but as you will know if you follow me on twitter that I have just got back this weekend from New York. It was fab and i got a few things i will share with you in a later blog. Before i went away i was really busy with work so have lots of blogs to catch up on!
I just wanted to share with you these fab stick on nails from nailene - im really impressed! I tried out the original nailene stick on nails and the first couple of days i was really impressed with them - but was disapointed that the white chipped off really badly. These new versions promise to be chip free and im pleased to say they work! I stuck these on in the airport whilst waiting for my flight to new york....i filed them more of a rounded shape as i felt they looked too fake square shaped. I have had them on a week now and no chips at all they look perfect - i have had a few girls passing comment on my nails and asking where i had them done!
Here is just after i applied the nails:




This picture is taken after 7 days of wearing them - and i have to say i have been rushing around, shopping, no not taking great care of them and they look perfect and natural! I prefer them to gel nails. Im very impressed and definately recommend them to you all :)
