UPDATE! New Camera! Youtube videos in 2014 & more...

Hello my lovely readers!

You know the exciting news I mentioned in my last post? Well its been delivered! I GOT THE CANON 700D. I'm probably far more excited about this any of you but it's a news that will be effecting us both as having this camera along with the tripod means I can make better quality youtube videos in 2014 and the pictures on this blog will be of better quality too! 

sorry for the bad quality the pictures were taken using false lighting rather than natural as i wanted to get this post out as soon as possible...im too excited not to!



Once my memory card for the camera arrives (expected to come 4th January) I will be able to start taking good quality photos for this blog as well as good quality videos for my youtube channel - if you're not already subscribed what are you waiting for? Links at the top of this page and here.

I just wanted to thank you guys for reading my blog and for those who have watched my videos it means the absolute world to me, hopefully I can continue making posts and videos for you in the new year and who knows what could happen? Happy new year guys and thank you!

If you have any requests/suggestions for videos that you'd like to see come 2014 please don't be shy and comment them bellow! It will help out a lot and it will mean I can make them more frequently.

Birthday/Christmas Beauty gifts 2013!

Hello guys! Merry Christmas! Long time no see...

It's been my fault that I haven't made posts in what seems like forever but with all the Christmas shopping, sales and my birthday (19th December) it got to be very busy, but also it's been because I'm very very lazy. My apologies! 
But i'm back now and I wanted to share the beauty things that I received for my Birthday/Christmas and the beauty related items I purchased with the gift cards given to me by my amazing friends (shout out to them).
May I just add that I am in no way bragging or trying to show off, I love reading/watching these kinds of things because who doesn't like being nosey once in a while? And I thought you guys would enjoy it too. 







This year was the first time that I have owned high end beauty products and i've got to say they are amazing! Let me know if you want a review of any of the following : urban decay naked basics, benefit rockateur, mac studio fix fluid!

The black and pink ted baker bow makeup bag was something that i've wanted to have literally all of this year and after receiving giftcards from friends I thought it would be a perfect time as i've always been unsure if I was willing to spend £25 on a small bag...but hey now its like my friends bought it for me!

I'm also very thankful to receive the maybelline products as it's one of my favourite drugstore brands and the baby lips are amazing! We can't get those in the UK but a friend of mine was lovely enough to order them for me and I have to say these smell amazing! 

It's a short post today as I dont think I have to go through each invidiual product, the pictures speak for them selves! I have a present coming in the mail and I cant wait to share what it is with you guys!! Hopefully you'll all be as excited as I am, because it'll be effecting both of us! 

Did you guys receive any beauty products? Did you buy any for your self? Would you like a review on anything? Let me know! I love hearing from you♥

Review: L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfection - Cleansing & Perfecting Milk

Hello lovely readers i'm back with another review,

I've been using this product for a while now and I can honestly say that I love it. Seriously love it. It's such a nice, gentle product perfect for when you're skin needs something less harsh.
On with the review:




I like to apply the product straight onto my skin with my fingers then use a cotton pad to wipe it off, and straight after quickly rinse my face with a splash of water. 

It removes all (but dark, stubborn eye makeup) perfectly and leaves your skin feeling moisturised and silky smooth which is perfect for this time of the year because I know my skin tends to dry up and start to flake when the seasons are changing (as it's not officially winter yet) so using products that have an extra little something in them helps me skin stay looking baby soft. 

Normally I dislike the smell of products similar to this however I actually really like this, it reminds me of babies and just generally soft smells like that which I think is really soothing especially if you're using this product at night. 

This is a very short post considering there's really not much to say apart from the fact I think you should all go try it...wouldn't necessarily recommend if you have super oily skin all year around as it does seem a tad oily (doesn't make me breakout). 

Thank you for reading, tell what you guys think if you decide to try it out? Is there anything similar I should buy? Let me know in the comments bellow!

Review: Rimmel Wake me up concealer (Classic beige)

Hello lovelies, how are you all doing?

I feel like lately my blog has been going a little off the track of the 'beauty/fashion' side and i wanted to pull it back onto that path with a review! This is going to be a rather short one today, I hope you enjoy and as always all feedback is appreciated! I'm sorry I haven't made any videos in a while its because I need a decent camera as using my phone to film is really inconvenient. 
On with the review...


I purchased this concealer as sort on an impulse simply because I wanted to try it, and I have to say i'm very impressed with it. I received a small tester of the matching foundation in a magazine when it was first released and I have to stay i wasn't impressed at all, I felt like it was too orange, far too shimmery and the consistency wasn't up to scratch but the same definitely can't be said about the concealer - because of this i might even consider giving the foundation another go!

Consistency - Surprisingly I love the consistency of this, a light, smooth and very liquid like consistency to this means blending is so easy, especially with your fingers, and looks super natural. 

Coverage - I feel like the coverage on this is great, even though its a light concealer the slight illuminating effect of it means that my dark circles are covered in 1-2 light coats! 

Finish - Illuminating and bright, I find that it needs to be slightly powdered to remove the harsh glow it seems to have when a strong light hits that area. However the same glow that it has also means the inner corner of your eyes are lightened which helps wake you up - matches the name 'wake me up'.

Wear - I hate to say but to all those die hard Collection Concealer lovers I think this one lasts longer! The horror. But it's true, on me personally this concealer stayed put all day without mixing weirdly with the powder I use to set it  - something the collection concealer often does to me after a long day. 

Colour range - Not the best colour range but I don't think any of Rimmel's face products have a good enough colour range, if you're skin is fairly dark olive and on wards I don't think you'll find a colour right for you. 

Overall I think this concealer has become a staple in my makeup routine and I won't be giving it up any time soon! If any of you guys have tried the matching foundation, what do you think? Is it worth buying? Comment bellow!

The Sunshine Award ☼

Hello butterflies!

As promised i'm posting more regularly now! I've been nominated/tagged for the 'Sunshine award' by the lovely Bess at http://daisychainprincess.blogspot.co.uk. The idea is to tag people who add a little sunshine to your newsfeed or life!
So straight on with it...


The rules:


  • Picture of the sunshine award must be included (there's a variety to choose from if you google it)
  • Have a link to the blog of the person who tagged you!
  • Post 11 random facts about your self
  • Answer the 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you
  • Nominate 11 lovely bloggers
  • Let the bloggers know you nominated them!
The rules are very similar to the 'Liebster award' I was nominated to do a while back (Click here)


11 Random Facts:


  1. I was nicknamed 'Spider' or 'Spida' for around 4 years.
  2. My birthday is 6 days before Christmas making me 15 on December 19th.
  3. I like to think that i keep to my promises, I take them very seriously. When you make a promise, you keep to it. 
  4. My hair is at my waist, but it's not always been this way at one point in my life I had a bob and had a fringe for many many years.
  5. I do fine art at school and i'm really worried that I won't be able to reach the high expectations that my teacher has for me (My target is an A)
  6. Children in Need is my favourite UK charity that is big and schools organise 
  7. I'm absolutely obsessed with 'The Vampire Diaries' |(TVD) so much so that I went from season 1 pilot to the most recent episode in Season 5 in less than a week (there's around 22 episodes per season)
  8. I've been shipping Delena (TVD) since the pilot
  9. I have 2 younger siblings who annoy me to the point where I consider murder, but I love them dearly.
  10. Finding out people's secrets makes me feel trusted and it also means I get to know the person a little better
  11. I really like Doctor who, not a lot of people know this about me but I've always really liked it and I cannot wait for the 50th anniversary because it means i get to see David Tennant on the show again.
If anyone has any questions about me or this blog please feel free to comment i'll happily answer them!

Questions I was given by Bess:

  1. What is your favourite genre of music? I don't really have one, I pretty like songs from any genre it's pretty much the case of 'If I like it, I like it'
  2. What was the first CD you ever owned? I can't fully remember this but I purchased a few around the same time and one of them was a 'Bratz' CD and another was 'Pop Princess'
  3. Whats your favourite flower? Daisies! I absolutely love daisies, i'm not 100% sure why but really love them. Not as flowers to be given in bouquet but they're definitely my favourite none the less.
  4. What is the purpose of life for you? Wow this is a big question, I guess to live a life filled with as little regrets as possible, to enjoy every second while it lasts and be surrounded by people you love.
  5. Why did you start blogging? I've always enjoyed creating content and writing, but never really been good at writing fiction/stories i'm better at informal style articles/posts and blogging seemed like the perfect way to do this and hopefully, with time, have plenty of lovely readers. 
  6. What is the meaning behind your URL? This is a really interesting question because I wonder this about a lot of people's URL. Well, The first very person I ever watched on Youtube who did beauty videos was 'Jlovesmac1' this was around 3 years ago before I even had an account on Youtube to follow them, I also began watching videos of a thrifter called 'ThreefeathersVintage' and my name is almost a combination of the two amazing girls who inspired me to start Youtube/Blogs.
  7. What is your favourite time of the year? If I HAD to choose it would probably have to be mid to late December, partially because of my birthday but also because I love the Christmassy feeling around that time, when everyone is shopping for loved ones and there's so many presents around, the snow more often then not comes around that time too and I just love that period. 
  8. Do you wear glasses? Yes, but mainly only at home. I wear contacts when going out. 
  9. What is the best film you've seen this year? I don't think I can even answer this there's been so many good films out and more yet to come, sorry i'm going to cheat with this one and not answer.
  10. What is the best book you've read this year? This is like asking someone to pick a favourite child...there's only really two that come to mind right now but there's so much more and that's  The time travellers wife and The fault in our stars
  11. Who was your favourite author when you were a child? Definitely, hands down, will have to be Jacqueline Wilson.
I nominate:

I realise this is not 11 people however after checking the blogs of people I follow many of them haven't posted in over 2 months and i'm not sure if they are active, but I tag ALL OF YOU to this tag and don't forget to comment the links if you do!

My questions for the people:

  1. What's your favourite season and why?
  2. If you could only use ONE product for this winter what would it be?
  3. Currently what's your favourite TV show?
  4. What do you enjoy most about blogging and have you ever thought of stopping?
  5. Would you say you like beauty or fashion more? and which one is your blog more about?
  6. Who was the first person to inspire you to start a blog?
  7. What kinds of posts do you most enjoy making?
  8. If you could receive any present this Christmas what would you want and why?
  9. How did you spend your last birthday?
  10. Favourite current song?

Thank you all for reading and I would just like to thank you again for all my amazing followers who have helped me reach over 10,000 views!

Hellooo!

Im here, keeping to my promise, with a post! Three cheers for Aida. As we're all fully aware autumn is here and winter isn't too far away and of course with it chirstmas! So many of you will probably have already started shopping for the new season and I thought I would share what I've purchased so far (I have bought a lace black dress that isn't in this post as no matter what I did I couldn't get the light to look right and it didn't do it justice, also I still need to buy a winter coat)
This is what i've purchased over the course of roughly 2 months and therefore many of the things have been worn. Many of the pictures lack quality compared to my other posts this is because the only time I could take them was at night, I apologise for that. 

Sleek blush in 'Rose Gold', Rimmel London Stay Matte powder 'Translucent', Loreal le blush 'Rosewood', Bourjois Happy light foundation 'light beige'





Maybelline Colour tattoo 'eternal gold'



Striped jumper -H&M, Mesh top - H&M, Tarten scarf - primark, Crop top - Republic, Necklace - Republic


Worker boots - H&M, Arabel 2 - Topshop
From left to right:
Topshop, River Island, River island.




Thank you for baring with me while I slowly get back to higher quality pictures and more frequent posts. I realise the picture quality here is bad and again I'm very sorry for that.

OOTD: Shopping in Leeds

Hello guys!

I feel like i'm always apologising for the lack of posts, but my laptop is still not fixed therefore i can't do many posts and making videos has been exceptionally hard as there never seems to be a moment where I sit down with good lighting and no noise. 
This post is lacking quality and I hope you don't mind too much as the pictures were taken in a rush before i headed out, but I couldn't not make a post as it's been a while.


 Due to the picture not being of too quality (i blame the app used to take it) I can't have the photo large but this should do for now. 


I'm wearing:

  • Cream studded blouse from BHS
  • Cream with Pink&blue detailing Jumper from H&M
  • Skinny jeans with Slit from TopShop 
  • Frilly socks from Primark
  • Arabel 2 cut out shoes from Topshop


My next post will be much longer, possibly a haul or review so please stay with me while I get back on track with this blog. 
Till' next time butterflies,

Review: Sleek Blush 'Rose Gold'

Hello guys,

I'm trying to keep to my promise and write more but it's been difficult because recently I've had zero motivation to do anything. However i did a little online shopping from SuperDrug as it was free delivery and one of the item I purchased was a sleek blush. 




A lot of times I find that I have no real need for more than one blush (even though I always get an urge to go out and buy thousands) and i'm perfectly happy with my Revlon cream one, but with the amount of people obsessing over Nars Orgasm and many other blushes I wanted to have more of a variety. I'd heard that this is the ultimate dupe for it, so of course I had to have it.....and I have no regrets...

Its a pink based creamy blush that blends perfectly, with specks of gold within in hence 'Rose Gold' and honestly I think its such a beautiful beautiful shade although not very Autumn(fall)/Winter like (I still need to go shopping for that) it's a lovely blush that can be worn all year around. 
Also I've found that sweeping this across your lid and into your crease with a fluffy blending brush looks gorgeous, the gold really shows through on your lids and the pink looks more clear in your crease. Effortless eye makeup - what's not to love? By having it both on your lids and on your cheeks ties together the look and I think that the almost metallic like shimmer of the gold allows us to use this in double and still not look over the top or crazy. 

The size of the packaging is tiny, but comes in at around 9g which is a fair amount and I don't think i'll be going through this any time soon because, luckily, it's very pigmented for such an affordable price. 

I suggest you all run out and buy this if you like to look alive by using blusher, and although I don't own Nars Orgasm from pictures, swatches and videos that I've seen this looks incredibly close, if not the same!

Till' next time,

Autumn Tag!

Hello guys I know that it's been such a long time since i've posted and that has been for various things; my laptop is dead, the family laptop had to be restored to original settings and now i've lost all my post pictures, youtube clips and so much more :(. Very sad times.
 
BUT a lovely reader has tagged me to do the Autumn Tag! Go check out http://daisychainprincess.blogspot.co.uk/! Unlike the liebster award this tag is a straight forward answer questions one and I think the questions are the same for everyone! No tag backs please :)
 
 
For Autumn what is your....
  1. What is your favourite thing about it? - I personally love the crunchy leaves you get to tread through and if you do manage to get a good autumn I love the fact its cold but the sky is clear and everything is very crisp and cold.
  2. Favourite drink? - Well i've never really been into many warm drinks (im hoping to discover some this year!) so i would have to go with my favourite all time drink which is from Boost and it's the "Raspberry Relief" (with extra fruit)
  3. Favourite candle/scent? - very easy for me! Most deffinetely 100% would have to be spiced orange by yankee candle, although I do want to buy more as Autumn and Summer scents are my favourite.
  4. Best lipstick? - Generally berry colours are my favourite which is very typical autumn colour but it just works so well and suits every single skin tone (in my opinion) I'll go for 'Berry queen' by Rimmel Moisture Renew....just because its the first berry colour i can think of that I love.
  5. Go to Moisturiser? - Clean & Clear Dual Action Daily moisturiser (featured in alot of previous posts)      
  6. Go to colours for the eyes? - I just normally wear black eyeliner (felt tip liner by collection) and mascara however if I wanted to have a hint of colour I would most likely go for the maybelline color tattoos (favourite shade - Pink gold )
  7. Favourite Music or band to listen to? - There is no way I can answer this question because honestly I don't know, I have so much yet so little and I wouldn't even know where to start.
  8. Favourite outfit to wear (i.e boots & a scalf combo) - well for autumn i tend to go with some sort of jeans or a skirt and jumpers and boots, its warm comfy and you look like you made SOME effort, perfect.
  9. Autumn treat? - Hmmm.... i'm not sure about this apart from a hopefully decent sized winter shopping and autumn too, we'll have to see if i decide to treat my self or not...
  10. Favourite place to be? - Online, with food nearby, preferably with a bank account full of money to do online shopping.  
I Tag ALL of you!! Simply because I love being tagged and I get disapointed when I don't, deffinitely let me know if you do this tag I love hearing from you guys!
 
Till' next butterflies,

DIY: Honey Hair lightener (mask) - Step by step & personal experience

Hello! I feel like its been such a long time since I've done a DIY and this has been on my 'Blog ideas' notes for a while now so I thought I should just do it!

To begin with My personal experience : 

I originally found this idea from a video of 'Andreas choice' on YouTube, she suggested that you do this 5 times (spread over a few weeks) before you start seeing any results however given how dark my hair was and still is it took me over 9 times to finally see results, so yes this is definitely something that needs patience, especially if your hair is as dark as mine. I think results will be seen on lighter hair much earlier. Even now that I notice slight changes its not as though my entire head of hair has magically changed 3 shades lighter but I feel as though its brought out the natural highlights that could previously only be seen when I was in direct sunlight (sunlight is known to lighten your hair!) however now those natural highlights can be seen. (they're still incredibly subtle and need certain lighting) I'm going to continue using this method to get my hair to a stage where I'm happy with it.

This mask doesn't damage your hair, it uses natural ingredients (conditioner can be swapped out for olive oil/coconut oil  to make the product 100% natural)

The recommended time to leave this mask on (with a shower cap over or a plastic bag) is 30 minutes - 2 hours .
Also how much product you make depends on how much hair you have and how long it is, i have thick hair (as in a lot of it) and its long, my dark hair also means i use slightly more honey than suggested. 

You're looking to use 1 part honey to 2 parts conditioner but it's a recipe I have adjusted to meet my own needs. 



Ingredients: 


  • Honey - any type will do, I'm using this large one for Holland & Barrett as its £4.99 which is amazing value in my opinion. 
  • Conditioner - again any type will do but I prefer to use a moisturising one as when i use this mask its to treat my hair. 

Equipment: 


  • Spoon - any 
  • Container (old hair mask ones work great)
Remembering the Honey : Conditioner ratio of 1 : 2 eyeball as you pour the two ingredients in, if you want a more lightening effect add lemon juice or more honey! For a deeper treatment use olive oil, coconut oil or conditioner!

Leave the mask in the container with the lid sealed tight for around 30 minutes then apply all over your hair and leave on for 30 minutes to 2 hours. After rinse and wash using a deep cleansing shampoo (any shampoo will do really) to ensure all residue has been removed. 

I hope you liked this short DIY let me know if it works for you and if you do try it!

Review: LOreal Skin Perfection - 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution

Hello my little daisies how are you all doing? Summer is coming to an end guys....how fast did it go?!
Anyway I hope you've all seen my new Back to School video if not click here 

So i'm here with a review on a new product guys which is the Loreal Skin perfection 3 in 1 purifying micellar solution...phew... what is it with brands using ridiculously long names?

On with the review: 





To begin with the packaging of this product is wonderfully classy...for a makeup remover anyway. However I think the fact that it's rather long fools your brain into thinking that you have purchased more product than you actually have which could be a marketing scheme (a clever one at that) but with the money you pay 200ml is a pretty fair amount to receive. 

I find that the nozzle is slightly inconvenient when you want to pour the product onto a cotton pad but its not exactly something too off putting and with the shape of the bottle it would be hard to have a convenient nozzle while still maintaining it's looks. 

Having this product and the fact that its also a toner saves a lot of time and makes it cheaper because you don't have to go and purchase another toner too however I find with my routine I would have to because after removing the makeup I then wash my face and would tone after all this. 

The solution may be slightly TOO gentle for removing waterproof makeup however it could be because I had high expectations and didn't apply too much pressure or rub much at all, but it does actually work beautifully and has no scent what so ever so its perfect for those who's skin gets irritated by fragrance. 

Overall I think is an amazing all around product and I will definitely be stocking up soon as there is currently an offer going on boots! Its on for around £3!

Till' next time daisies,

Back To School: Simple, Fresh Faced Makeup

It's official my back to school series (which will continue on my You~Tube) is kick starting today and I know that it's incredibly late but I do plan on doing some during the school year which will hopefully help/inspire you, or just give you a little something to read/watch when you're bored.

I absolutely love this look because its so neutral and although you are wearing makeup it's still a natural look and completely adaptable to meet your skin needs.

Let me know if you'd like to see a photo of the finished result for future posts!

A rather dark photo today, sorry!
 Starting with a clean face I recommend using Garnier Moisture Match - Illuminating light lotion for normal skin, this product is super light and feels amazing on the skin as well as creating the perfect base for BB creams/Foundation (optional) , the fact that this has SPF 20 means you're protected from the suns harmful rays without having to take an extra step and applying sun cream which more often than not is white based and leaves you looking washed out as well as sticky also this product does actually make your face glow (in a good way) which is amazing for looking wide awake in the morning!

The BB cream/Foundation step is completely optional (as is this entire look!) however for the purpose of this post i included it, I love this BB cream and prefer it over the 8 in one BB cream simply because my skin looks better with this but if you have oily skin the other would be perfect (click here for review)

The concealer I've included is one I'm sure you're all familiar with, the Collection Lasting perfecting Concealer which i think is perfect for covering those under eye circles!
I've not included a powder as i have yet to find one that i'm in love with.

The Revlon photo ready blush is perfect for school as its subtle and goes onto the skin beautifully (can be applied with stippling brush or fingers)

As for lips this is a product that i have recently purchased (along with another shade) that I'm head over heels in love with, its in the colour 001 Pink Truffle and its just like my lip colour but better! So in a way this is my way of wearing the 'nude lip' as i find beige colours don't suit me and of course the Revlon lip butters are amazing (currently on for 2 for £10 in boots)

For the eyes i wanted to keep it simple with just a mascara and eyeliner, I like to apply the eyeliner as close to the lash line as possible and make it slightly thicker towards the end, not winging it out as I find this makes my lashes look thicker without being too dramatic for school. The eyeliner is the collection extreme felt tip liner in black and the mascara is the Maybelline Mega Plush mascara (perfect natural yet long lashes)

Till' next time beauties,

Product Obsession! - Garnier Simply Essentials Eye Make-Up Remover (Review)

Hi my little butterflies (slightly cheesy but lets go with it) how are you all? 
I'm here to announce to the internet my obsession with a certain product...I have repurchased this more times than I can count but it was only a few months ago when i thought to start collecting the empty bottles in case i ever made a post..and here i am making that very thing....

3 on the left are the empties. 




The reasonable price of around £2.99 and the fact that its advertised for sensitive eyes (can also be used by contact lens wearers like my self) meant that when I first saw this product months and months ago I simply had to have it, and to this day I'm still using and loving it. 

Unlike some thick and gloopy eye makeup removers that I've used in the past this one has a thin watery texture meaning your lashes won't clump together (i speak from experience of previous products). I personally prefer the watery like consistency of this much better.

Although it is for sensitive eyes be careful when using this (soaking a cotton pad, placing on eyes for a few seconds and then sweeping off) because when the product mixes in with eye makeup it can cause your eyes to become slightly irritated but then again I guess you can never find a product that's completely soothing on the eyes AND removes tough makeup.

If used correctly i think the product does deliver amazing results day after day and I can honestly say i have no idea how those who use wipes (ew - separate post on why you shouldn't use wipes may be coming up) and those who use nothing and just wash their face can cope when there are things like this out there that make the job so much cleaner and easier to do. 

The nozzle/opening where the product comes out of is very typical Garnier as this can be seen across many of their products but when it comes to eye makeup removers this is perfect as it soaks the cotton pad just as you need, the lid also 'clicks' into place and becomes completely sealed meaning no spillages in case you are wishing to travel with it although planes don't allow this as it is over their 100ml rule, but buying separate 100ml clear containers and pouring some of this into it will work fine.

Review: Herbal essences - bee strong strengthening cream

How's everyone's summer? I hope you're all having a lot of fun because August is flying by and sooner or later it'll be School/College/Work/University soon....
On a lighter topic...i'm back with a review! I personally always use a product from Herbal essences and when i found a new product by them at the exact time when i needed a new leave in treatment i jumped right on it!

I have a new background again! tell me what you guys think, would you rather have this or the floral folder?





















I actually purchased this product thinking it would be a pump with a serum like liquid like a Tresemmé product i had used previously but i was pleasantly surprised to find its actually a thin spray and the nozzle works great as it spreads the product all over your hair. 

The colour is nice shade of gold which i believe is there to represent the honey and apricot found in this, Herbal essences managed to find a shade of gold that isn't too tacky which is what happens often when brands deal with yellows and golds. 

The smell is what won me over with this product its a very sweet yet rather mature fruity smell (not a strong fruit smell, slightly floral too), hints of the classic Herbal essences shampoo scent can be found in this which i'm used to.  Normally products that smell great compromise on the effect on the hair, i don't think this happens too much with this and it still works good. 

Apply this to damp hair and using a wide tooth comb, spread it from the mid lengths to the roots of your hair. 

Rather short review from me today, tell me which you prefer long or short posts?  Will you be trying this out? 

Till' next time honeys
