Hello Love!

Hello there,

As you can see there has been a distinct lack of pictures added for my foxy locks hair extensions and the reason for this is really that I'm lazy! I have nothing of interest to report and sadly for me no new beauty discoveries to write about. The month of July has been thoroughly dull and full of Dr's appointments and horrible things. I have spent the majority of this month watching Disney films and cuddling my beloved Lolly (who is beginning to look slightly more streamlined) and wishing I was feeling better. Morbid! Speaking of Disney films I love them all and could sit here and write about Disney until the end of time but I fear that only I would read it.
Any way the hope for this week is that the weather will pick up and I will be able to do fun things like see friends and walk Lolly and wear summer clothes, if any pictures are taken I shall upload them.
The purpose of this post is non existent I just wanted to prove I hadn't forgotten you and that as soon as I have something even slightly interesting to post about I will.
Same goes for the youtube videos, there is no point posting endless vids of me in my pj's with unbrushed hair and spotty skin. YUCK!
I'm hoping things will begin to improve soon and I can get going with life again.
For all of you that have been lucky enough to have summer holidays this year, I hate you!

Foxy Locks Hair Extensions

Hello there,

This post isn't really a proper blog post it's sort of a pre blog post... sort of. It will eventually be a proper blog post with pictures and possibly a video but as of this moment I am sat in my pj's with my hair greasy and up in a bun so can't do these beautiful hair extensions justice by attaching them to my awful hair. As you may know I spend most of my time in the dark, trawling through youtube videos and pretending I have friends, well I stumbled across the "foxylocks" channel and was amazed! Imogen of "Foxy Locks Hair Extensions" has made a beautiful channel dedicated to her gorgeous clip in hair extensions that are 100% remy grade human hair (for those who don't know, what remy means is that the root and the end of the hair are all in the same direction so it should prevent snagging and tangles). I have been willing my hair to grown for about 4 years now and so far it's just past my shoulders (stupid hair!), so hair extensions are a must for me. I considered for some time getting the bonded hair extensions, but they are crazy expensive and I've had a pretty bad experience with them before so these clip ins are clearly they only logical choice (I mean I could just wait for my hair to grow, but that's just boring).
SO I hopped on the internet and bought 160g of beautiful "caramel blonde", they arrived so quickly and are just gorgeous!!
The clips are such good quality and just don't budge when in your hair, they have a silicon strip so they don't hurt your natural hair. The hair itself is thicker than my natural hair and is so soft, that I really want to wear it at all times.
I would say it's worth getting the 160g even if you have fine hair because it really isn't that much more money and you get so much hair.
Anyway there will be some pictures and possibly a video to follow.
All in all I am over the moon about these extensions and I think every one should by them.

lots of love

P.s Imogen (the foxy locks lady) is gorgeous (small girly scream followed by blushing).

The Sanctuary Spa Skin Care

Hello there,

I have suffered with bad skin for years now, it's never been full blown acne everywhere, but I had a lot of spots and black heads and just yucky skin. For quite some time it's been something I've been incredibly self conscious about and as a result have covered myself in thick makeup to try and cover my imperfections, which in turn just made it worse. Along with having quite bad skin, I'm also pretty lazy when it comes to skin care and carrying out about a thousand different steps every day to combat my skin was just out of the question. Saying that though I have tried and spent lots of money on hundreds of products to try and help my skin, but really I've never stuck them out long enough to see any real benefits.
Well a couple of months ago now I decided to visit one of The Sanctuary Spa counters in Debenhams and asked for help. I was fortunate enough that they gave me a  mini facial so they could have a look at my skin more closely and decide what products would be best, after a gorgeous facial where they demonstrated some of their products I bought a range from them. (For those of you who watched my 'April Favourites' youtube video you can see the range there).
I got these products:

Now I realise this seems like a lot of things for someone who can't really be bothered to wash her face, well I kind of got carried away, but I'm so glad I did. One thing I really find annoying is the whole motion of washing my face, mainly because I end up soaking myself and the floor and then my bathroom because a slidey death trap for the rest of the day, but that purifying wash (which I'm proud to say I have used twice a day every day since I bought it) basically doesn't require that much water. You squeeze a little out onto your hands then splash some warm water onto the gel, and then obviously rub it all over your face (it even takes off your mascara without hurting your precious peepers). I use the gel wash, the toner (which I just spray onto my face) and the lotion daily, the exfoliator twice or three times a week and the mask once a week (usually in the bath, I promise I do bathe slightly more regularly than once a week).
One thing I really liked is how quickly it began to make a difference to my skin, in just over a week my skin was noticeably better!
I would highly recommend this range, especially the lotion as it also works as a perfect base for makeup.
Hope you found this helpful and to any of you with bad skin out there, just keep trying new things and don't always get stuck using products "designed for acne prone skin" you can use other types too.

lots of love
