My 5 Favourite Necklaces!

Hey guys!
Today I wanted to show you 5 of my favourite necklaces.

Let me see if I can remember where I got them from. Hmm, I think:
1. Claire's
2 & 3 (as a set). Superdrug
4. Claire's
5. A random jewellery stand

My fave (well, faves) are 2 & 3. They are gorgeous. Perfect to wear together or separately, knotted or looped.
You can probably tell that I like long necklaces. Yeah, short ones strangle me.

Which necklace is your fave? And what type of necklaces are your favourite type to wear?

Lots of love,

Crazy Cool Nails!

I like to be unique. Well, not crazily unique but unique enough, if you get what I mean? That's why I don't do boring Barbie Pink like most other girls.
Normally, I don't go overboard, I just paint my nails a funky colour like a bright yellow or do a simple nail art like my last post
But today I've done something kind of hmm, different. Let me know what you think!
First & second finger in blue, second finger with Barry M Instant Nail Effects on top
What's your favourite colour to paint your nails, and do you do anything unique to them?

SUPER EASY nail art!

Hellloooo! I'm so excited to show you guys this. 

This was on my left hand, so excuse it if it looks a bit messy! I was taking the pic with my right hand ^.^

Here's the finished look!

  1. Paint the half of your nails black diagonally. Use tape if you don't have steady hands!
  2. Grab a white nail art polish and make dots, around 8-10. If you don't have a white nail art polish use a toothpick and white nail polish.
  3. Where the black polish ends, draw a straight line diagonally in silver nail polish. Again, I used a silver nail art polish.
That's it!

How I scrunch my hair! + I got an award!!!

I got an award! From the lovely Holly
The Liebster Award is designed to bring well deserved additional recognition to those bloggers with less than 300 followers. If you receive the award you link back to the blogger that nominated you and nominate 3 more blogs.
I decided to chose 3 blogs that I discovered recently..
My awards go to:



Moving on to part 2 of the post- scrunching hair!:


Everyone scrunches their hair differently, so I thought I'd share mine with you guys. It's an overnight process and requires styling in the morning, but you don't need to do the overnight part. That's just for more defined curls :)

The Overnight Part #1
It's simple, braid damp hair into 2/3/4 chunky braids before bed. Since I want looser waves, instead of super tight curls (almost like crimps) I do 2 braids.

In The Morning #2
1. If your hair is still slightly damp, great, but if not, just spritz some water.
2. Get your hands on some mousse. Any kind works fine!
3. Bend your head upside down, and scrunch using the mousse. Scrunch for at least 2 minutes!
4. Lift your head back up and scrunch the front, using another blob of mousse.

That's it, you're done! You will probably end up with curls/waves like this:

Thank you everyone, for commenting and following! xo

Creating an Outfit from my Favourite Clothes!

Hey! I've found some pieces of clothing which I really like. I thought I'll make it into an outfit and show you :)

Blue Pleated Bow Belted Playsuit
Topshop
This actually isn't a dress, it's a playsuit :) I hate dresses, they're so annoying!

Grey (Grey) Canvas Pump Wedge | 216207904 | New Look
New Look
I wouldn't actually wear these in public... well maybe I would. They're so cool xD 
For a less crazy brave look, I would wear these:
Debenhams
Aah, that's more like it. <sighs with relief>
Image 1 of ASOS Grey Feather Clutch
Asos
This clutch is soooo cute- I just hope they're not real feathers :o

For this outfit, I'd probably do my hair really laid back, something like loose waves :)
Makeup wise, well, not much. Subtle is key!

Anyway, let me know which clothing item you liked the most. Mine is the clutch!
EDIT: This post previously got deleted, and so did the comments. The post has reappeared but the comments are lost :( Hopefully they'll come back, but new comments WILL show up so please comment! xD

Aussie Hair Products!

Heya!
I've had these three products for a while and I thought that I would review them.
I have:

  • Aussie Frizz Miracle Shampoo
    3 Minute Miracle Luscious Long Treatment
    Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Luscious Long
  • Aussie Frizz Miracle Conditioner


First I should explain what my hair type is- I DO NOT have frizzy hair, but I do have loads of flyaways. Other than that, my hair is pretty normal well it would depend on what you call normal. It's long (ish) and a bit wavy. OK, enough of my hair... lets start the actual review.

SMELL
I honestly don't get all the hype for the smell. I mean, it's naaaaaaasty! It's sickly sweet- eww. Oh, and all 3 of them smell the same.

HOW THEY MAKES MY HAIR FEEL
Shampoo: Soft.
Conditioner: Softer.
3 Minute Miracle: Softest!

DO THEY DO WHAT THEY CLAIM TO DO
No. I still have flyaways and my normally non-frizzy hair has turned slightly frizzy.

Extra comments:

  • The shampoo lathers up nicely
  • The 3 Minute Miracle does pretty much the same job as a good conditioner
  • I repeat: they do not smell good
Have you tried out any Aussie products? If not, what hair products from any other brand do you recommend?

Barry M Nail Paints Review!

Aah, Barry M Nail Paints. They are awesome! I have them in:

  • Berry Ice Cream
Barry M Nail Paints Berry Ice Cream


  • Mint Green
Barry M Nail Paints Mint Green


  • Turquoise
Barry M Nail Paints Turquoise


I also have an Instant Nail Effects in Black, review here
And I have a limited edition glittery navy colour and a limited edition pink.

I don't have too many actually, I used to buy different brands. BUT, now that I've found these, I won't be switching back to any of my more expensive nail polishes which are nowhere near as good as these. These last, without chipping, for a week. That is loooooooong for a nail polish, trust me.

My favourite is Turquoise, it looks gorgeous on my tanned skin and also my friend's pale skin. I'm not sure how it looks on dark skin, but I'm pretty sure it would look good too.

Pros:

  • Cheap
  •  Long lasting
  • Beautiful colours!
Cons:
  • Some of the nail paints are really sheer and need 3 coats to get a decent colour.


However, if anyone knows any other good nail polishes, let me know please! I'm a nail polishaholic xD

love,
