New Schedule

Hello you lovely bunch.

After making a return to my blog last week and then being incredibly busy, I have decided that I'll be changing my blogging schedule until after Christmas. I've become a right busy bee and just cannot find the time that I want or need to put into my blog posts. I think you all know how much of a perfectionist I can be and I'd rather give you one or two decent posts than three half-assed ones. So, in light of this, I'll be changing my blog schedule from Tuesday, Friday and Sunday to a Wednesday (possibly an additional post each week if I find the time, keeps your peepers alert for those). I'm sorry if you'd like to see more from me, I know I've been a disappointment recently and this is just adding to that list, but I'd rather give you the best of my abilities than rushed and semi-thoughtless posts.
I hope you can all stay with me and I'll see you on Wednesday!

Love you all and thanks for being here for me!

Beky
Xx

Christmas Wish List 2014

Usually, I must admit that I find it very easy to sit and put together a wish list. I (shamefully) consider myself a shopaholic and because of that, I find it difficult to not have a list as long as my arm of things that I'd like to own. Unfortunately, sometimes because of this it does become harder to suggest things for people that are in their budgets as I often buy most of the things I want myself. However, most of the time it is easy for me to reel off a list of things that I would like, whether that's the new Mulberry bag or the latest L'Oreal lipstick release, but this year, I've found it very difficult to think of anything that I'd genuinely ask for for Christmas. Don't get me wrong, Of course I've managed to finally put a very hefty wish list together, but it has taken me the best part of 3 hours and a couple of failed attempts previous to sitting down to write this post today. I'm actually very happy in my life for once and there's  nothing I feel like I need or desperately want to have in my life. The below products are things that I'd like, but could definitely live without. I'm actually quite proud of myself for this and can't wait to get paid and get back to buying presents for my friends and family.

Review | Luster Premium White Pro Light*

I don't know about you, but having white teeth is such a must nowadays more than ever. Now, I'm not talking Simon Cowell bright, but as women, it's nice to have some pearly whites. There's nothing worse than popping on your new bright red lippie and noticing your teeth aren't as bright as they could be. Recently, I've been testing the Luster Pro Light Teeth Whitening System* which uses an accelerated whitening method to brighten your teeth quickly and without causing any tooth sensitivity. I've never tried a tooth brightening product before that hasn't been a tooth paste and I've really liked the results of this product. 



This Product is based on 20 treatments for you to see a difference - I know what you may be thinking, that's a bit much perhaps? But no, this is just 20 simple 2 minute treatments. The Luster Pro Light Whitening System* prides itself on being easy, without messy strips, uncomfortable trays and can be completed in 3 simple steps. I really like the fact that this kit also comes with a treatment guide, with guidelines on the best time schedules for best results, whether you have only the time on the weekend (20 treatments over 2 days), during the week (20 treatments over 5 days), or the full week treatment (20 treatments over 7 days). Honestly for me, I think I'd find the 7 day schedule easiest after I trialled this product over a weekend and 10 treatments on each day, although not too time consuming, was a bit of a pain in the bum. 


The kit includes a 'pretreat' Whitening Solution, an Activator Whitening Gel and a Dual-Action Whitening Light. Both solutions have an applicator brush attached to the bottle lid and surprisingly, smell appealing. In the past, tooth whitening pastes that I've tried usually don't smell too good. I found the minty scent of the Activator Whitening Gel freshening and found that the pretreat Whitening Solution was almost odourless. 



To the results! 


As I said before, I opted for the 10 treatments over the 2 day weekend. Using the shade guide to determine what shade of white I wanted for my end results , I decided to aim for four shades lighter and I wasn't disappointed. I wouldn't say that I saw a huge improvement after these 20 little treatments, however there was definitely a noticeable difference, more so than with other products I've tried in this short amount of time. I've been pretty impressed and I'd definitely buy the refills for this product / this product again in the future. 


You can purchase the Luster Pro Light Whitening System from Boots for £37.49 .RRP £49.99   Link

It's almost that time of year again. The cold winter is upon us and the nights are getting darker and darker earlier and earlier and that just means one thing. Christmas is coming! I can't tell you how excited I am for Christmas this year. Not only, have I got some lovely Christmas and New Years plans, but this year I also have the wonderful Jordan to share it with (sorry soppy moment over with!). This year, instead of doing the usual Gift Guide for £xx and under, I've decided to just do two simple gift guides for him and her. Slightly Lazy, I admit, but this year, I want to keep all of my ideas safe to my heart so that Jordan doesn't get any ideas!

Top 5 Christmas Fashion Must Haves

top 5 christmas

Christmas means one thing. Crazy Fashion. And if there's one thing that I love most about Christmas, it's most definitely the crazy fashion. Who doesn't love a good Crimbo jumper?? I think the one above is honestly the best I've seen in a while - I have to say, I'm still absolutely gutted I missed out on the Topshop Gingerbread man one last year, but this is definitely becoming my chance to redeem myself! 
The New Look Red Bodycon dress is also a fave for this year. I'm very tempted to buy it for New Years in Leeds and can't wait to try it on!

Guest Post | Top 10 Long Hair Tips for Women

Long hair is a dream of every girl and woman of the world. Every one of them wants long stunning hair but a huge majority of them don’t know how. Majority of us don’t know what we put in our bodies can affect our hair growth too. Using a good routine for hair care can prevents us from hair breakage as well as dull and dry hair; and it can also give you what you have always dreamed about long perfect hair.

Source 

So let’s go through the Top 10 Amazing Tips to grow your hair long and strong:



1 -The first step in growing your hair long is to removing the damaged hair. Go to your hair stylist and ask him/her to remove all the damaged hair and style the rest of them. This is a hard step for most of the women but believe me, you can never get your desired hair if you don’t do this.


2 -Never shampoo your hair more than thrice a week, and never use hot water for washing your hair. Otherwise it will lead to hair breakage and make your hair dry. Change the manner you wash your hair; use cold water to wash your hair. If it’s not possible for you to shower in cold water you can simply wash your hair in the sink with cold water.


3 -Massage your hair 1 – 2 times per week, it will flow blood to your head and all the hair growth nutrients will be transported to your scalp; resulting in better hair growth.

4 -Dry your hair with precaution when they are damp. Never rub them; just gently dry them otherwise there is a chance you might break your hair by rubbing them with towel.  Try to use wide mouth comb while combing damp hair, but make it a habit to comb while your hair are dry.


5 -Conditioning is must. Try conditioning your hair after showering, it will add moisture to your hair and prevent hair dryness.

6 -Raw eggs remedy is the best and most natural remedy for your hair. Apply raw egg on your scalp for 20 – 30 minutes and then wash your hair. It will bring such positive changes to your hair which no other thing can.


7 -Say no to harsh chemicals. Try using natural oil and remedies like avocado oil, almond oil, olive oil as this natural oil have no competition when it comes to effective hair care.


8 -Eating more protein will ensure proper hair growth. Eat fish, chicken, beef, eggs etc. Moreover eating omega 3 fatty acids will ensure proper shining and freshening effect to take place in your hair. Eat avocados, salmon, nuts and flaxseed oil.


9 -Proper, stress less-less, sound sleep will ensure that you have healthy natural hair. It will give your head more time to transfer effective nutrients to your scalp.

10 -Drink fresh water. At-least 3 – 4 litres a day. It will ensure proper functionality of your body cells, resulting in an indirect hair growth advantage.
