B's thoughts: Twist band.

I've been looking for a hair tie that doesn't damage my hair for the last year or so, I was previously wearing the ones with a metal attached to it and every time after using it for a long period of time  I could feel my hair breaking and getting frizzy .
So, after talking to my hair stylist she recommended the twist band, after hearing she talking about it I decided to give it a go.

I'm so glad I decided to buy it, I can now see how good this hair tie is, it doesn't damage my hair because of the soft fabric and looks super cute!
I ordered a pack with 15 hair ties from a Etsy store called BePampered, you can choose different colours and prints, and you can also choose how many you would like in a pack. It is a bit more expensive than the normal hair ties but I would gladly repurchase it.

So, what do you think about it? Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments below.

NOTD: You Don't Know Jacques by OPI + Vampsterdam by OPI

First of all, I'm sorry for being absent, I just been busy but I'm for now on I will do my best to post regularly.
So, that is out of the way, I'm here with another Nail of the day, it's been so cold in England and it is starting to look like fall, so I decided it's time to wear dark nail polish. (yay!)
I am not a fan of cold temperature but I love autumn, just makes me happy, is that weird?
Anyway, You Don't Know Jacques is one o my favorites dark nail polishes and I thought it would be perfect to start autumn with it. Vampsterdam is a new addition to my collection and at first I didn't think I would like it, but i turn out to love it!
And again I applied two coats each, and I don't think I could get away with only one, it first applies very streaky and sheer, but after the second coat it looks awesome!
What is your favorite dark nail polish? Let me know in the comments below.

NOTD: turquoise and Caicos by Essie + Knackered by Butter London

As you've probably seen I love to combine Knackered by Butter London with blue/ green nail polishes, but this time I add one coat of it over Turquoise and Caicos by Essie, so I could get a different effect and I actually like this way better!
This combination looks even better against my tanned hands, and I've been wearing a lot this summer!
Both nail polishes are very easy to apply and I could get away with applying only one coat of the Essie polish, but I like to apply two coats, so I can make sure every single nail is opaque.
Do you like it? Would you wear it? Let me know in the comments bellow.

Is it worth the hype? Benefit They're Real mascara

I know I'm a bit late with this one, but I decided to post it anyway. I wasn't going to buy this mascara at first because it is a bit expensive and I know I can find mascaras just as good on the drugstore, however last week I was walking around with some friends and we decided to look around benefit and I thought I would give it a try.
Also after seeing the reviews both positive and negative about it I thought I would try so I could give you guys my review.
Bad Gal mascara from Benefit is one of my all time favourite mascaras and I didn't think this would be as good, but fortunately I was wrong, this mascara became one of my favourite mascaras ever, but I could see why people don't like it as much. The only two points that I'm not a fan is the tip of the brush, it accumulates a lot of product and could make my eyelashes stick together, another negative point is definitely the price tag, retailing for £18.50.
(one coat. I did not curl my eyelashes before applying mascara.)

So, do I think this is worth the hype? Yes, absolutely.
Have you ever tried this mascara? Do you like it?

B's thoughts: LUSH No Drought Dry Shampoo

When I first saw this at LUSH I was very excited to try, and after seeing some review on-line I started to get even more excited, so after a while debating if I would purchased or not I decided to give it a try.

So, after months scared of it I decided to take it to Malta with me, I thought it was a good idea at first but after going through the airport security with this bottle full of white powder in my backpack and the airport guy staring at me like I was the weirdest person ever I realised it wasn't very clever of me.
However, the situation did not improve when I realised I did not have any backup in case I didn't like this product , and for my luck that was exactly what happen, I didn't like it then and don't like it now!
First of all I don't like the idea of putting a white powder all over my dark hair, I have to say that is not what I don't like about this product, actually the powder is very fine so I could not see any residues after I massage it in. What I don't like it is how my hair feels and looks after using it.It gives a very matte finish and my hair feels very sticky, and at the end of the day my hair looks very oily.
However it smells great but not an overpowering smell.
Have you tried it? Do you like it or not? Let me know in the comments below

NOTD: Red Lights Ahead...Where? By OPI and Bronze by Nail Girls

I'm back! I had a lot of fun on my holidays but I also missed blogging like crazy!
Anyways, after I came back my nails were in a horrific state, so yesterday I decided to do something different and that was what I came up with.
Both nail polishes are a dream to apply and they clean up very easily too. I could have applied one coat each but I always like to apply them twice.
First I was a bit unsure about the colour combination, but I now I'm in love with it!
Do you guys like the colour combination? Have you ever tried any nailgirls nail polihes? Let me know in the comments bellow

I just wanted to let you all know that I will be away for the next 10 days, I'm not sure about the internet situation, so I probably won't post anything, or reply to comments.
Enjoy the Sun!
