Feather Ray is an awesome brand I came across one day after I was searching the internet for 'Feather extensions'. A girl at work had them in and they looked awesome, so I just wanted to do a little bit of research to find out more about them. Whilst doing so I found just the thing, Feather Ray. They are an online brand (although now you can buy them in Topshop Oxford Circus over the weekends) who specialise in these hair feathers. They come in an array of colours from fluorescent pink to a natural warm brown. This really is a new, exciting and easy way to pimp up your hair. They are literally so easy to put in too and are done so with little micro rings which come with each pack you decide to purchase. You get 7 individual feathers in your pack, varying in size, length colour and pattern, which is a good way to get variety but can also be annoying if you have your favourites (which I do!). They were originally £15, but they have recently gone up to £20 (must be due to growing popularity) but I think they are worth it! They last up to 3 months, but in theory if you treat them as well as you do your own hair, I reckon they could survive longer. They are amazing as you can straighten, wash, blow dry and literally care for them as if they were your own hair. I've had mine in now for over a month or so and they are still in perfect condition. I get so many compliments and queries over them so thought I'd post.
Do any of you girls have them if so what do you think? and what colours?
Well, yesterday I went up to London town to try and do some Christmas shopping. As you can guess, it was pretty mental. There were so many people coming from every angle, a lot of hustle and bustle so didn't actually manage to buy anything for anyone else apart from me (ooosh!). I had a 30% off Christmas voucher from work (Topshop) so wanted to go up to London to the Oxford Street store to spend it (secretly the main aim of the visit). I will do another post about what I purchased soon, but firstly wanted to share my WAH nails that I got done whilst I was in the Topshop store. I've wanted to get my nails done by WAH for yonks, and finally decided to go for it. They are a little bit pricey and cost more for different designs on each finger, but I decided to go a little crazy! I went for the POW, Ying Yang and Polka dot nails, and my sister went for the Hot Lips. Mine cost £33.80 and my sisters was £32 (they work it out per nail). I love my nails but do feel they are a little overrated, I reckon I could learn to do them pretty swiftly, especially on someone eleses hand. I'm glad I got them done, but I think this will be the first and last time! It's too much money for what you actually get, plus they only last a week, pffft.
About 3 million years late but here are some Halloween snaps. I decided to go out anti-halloween as it was actually the day before, and I wanted to try and look nice & sophisticated for a change as hadn't been out in a while! (haha saying that there are a couple of joke pictures including the random scary crazy clown mask). I got a bit merry. The lack of blog posts has been a bit of a joke recently, I've been so busy & ill so just haven't had the time! But I'm back on ittttttt, so watch this space.
The first time I saw this polish I fell in love, so went on a mission to try and find a store that stocked it! Unfortunately this seemed like mission impossible, after finding it only really being stocked in the USA (and costing a fortune for shipping & handling) I decided to give up on the idea. But after recently posting about other Deborah Lippman nail varnishes, I was on the hunt again. I finally came across the exact one on eBay so couldn't resist purchasing, (although it was about £12, which to me is expensive for a nail polish) It's totally worth it! I have not come across any other glitter polish as stunning as this before. I have used a light blue base colour first, as I found without this it comes out very light and pearly (which is fine if this is what you like/want but I prefer a bit of depth and vibrancy to my nails). What do you think?x
Here are a few of my bargains that I've got recently charity shopping. I must admit you do have to be in the mood for a good rummage and it's also useful to have an eye for a particular pattern or fabric you like or you've seen elsewhere so you know the type of thing you are looking for. It can be quite overwhelming otherwise. I know I like sheer fabric, chunky knits and geometric/retro patterns, as you can see from my collection of treats. All of the items are under £7 which is just amazing considering how expensive these items would be on the high-street or in a 'vintage' shop today. The shoes were a particular favourite of mine, at £3 and being the right size make them even more awesome, they are also super comfortable which makes them a great buy. What's your best buy from a charity shop?x
