imPRESS Press On Manicure

Afternoon my lovelies! 

I recently reviewed* the imPRESS Press On Manicure by Broadway.

imPRESS Nails: Rock It, Totally Busted & Shout.
A revolutionary new way to apply nail polish, in minutes, available in 36 different designs too you wont be stuck for the perfect shade to match your outfit or for that special occasion. 

Nicole Scherzinger is the ambassador for imPRESS & she surely knows a good mani when she sees one right?! 

The design of the imPRESS manicure is so clever, its design is made to look like a polish bottle, and it has a twist on cap so you can keep them in your handbag without loosing them.

The nails come in 12 sizes in each pack, so they will fit all nails, and the no mess, press on application makes them so easy to apply. 

Prep is so simple, just use the enclosed wipe and wipe your nails down, this simply cleans any dirt and grime off the nail plate ready for the nails to be applied.

Then you simply need to select the right size nails for your hands and lay them out in front of you ready for application.


When you are ready to apply simply peel off the clear backing paper to expose the sticky tab on the nail, being careful not to touch the sticker hold the nail up close to your cuticle and apply pressure for 10 seconds to ensure a good hold.

Repeat for all your nails...and voila!



Salon looking, instantly dry manicure, in under 10 minutes!

Personally I didn't get on well with the press on nails, but that doesn't mean to say that I think they are not worth the money. I would use them in an emergency say for a wedding or an event if I didn't have time to do my nails before hand. I found that they caught on my hair if ran my fingers through my hair, and they lifted off really easily, but I know people who have got on really well with them.

Enrapture Extremity Heated Rollers

'Enrapture... When everyday hair just isn't enough'

In today's society modern women are always looking to create new looks for less, yet get amazing results. Over the last few years straight has been the easily achievable style using straighteners, providing women with a quick and easy everyday style. 

However with the celeb world putting big hair firmly on the pages of the glossies I think so many of us are now hungry for tools that deliver curls, waves and glam hair just as easy as your trusty pair of straighteners.

 I was very lucky indeed to be sent these* to review, I can definitely say I have just found the rollers of my dreams...

As you know I love a well packaged product, as the old saying goes you get what you pay for I think you can tell a lot by the quality, look & feel of a products packaging.


The Extremity Rollers come in this gorgeous royal blue/purple box, with a sleeve that slides over the top giving you the product details. It has a real salon quality feel to it and sets the rollers off before you've even got to play with them!

The attention to detail even down to the chrome bar that runs along the front of the roller box, gives it a real high end salon feel. 

I wanted to pick out some of the amazing features these rollers have to offer, and how better to explain them to you, than via video...


The whole design is perfect, down the the very last detail. 
I love the hard storage case, and the fact that the clips all store neatly around the rollers, so you never have to worry about them getting lost or finding them when you need to use them! 

A sleek and modern design, you will want to keep these on show.

The cord storage is something only the Enrapture Rollers offer, and personally I LOVE the cord storage, such a simple yet clever feature to keep everything neat and tidy when your not using your rollers. 

One of the many pro's to this set of rollers is the clips that come with them, their unique plates allow heat to be retained whilst the rollers are setting, creating the best results, but there are so many good points, and in comparison to the other heated rollers on the market these really are the very best that money can buy.

Here is my simple guide on placing the rollers in your hair...

The soft flocked design of each roller means they grip in to the hair better and are cool to hold in your hands whilst applying them to each section of hair.

The rollers retail (as do the 2 other stylers in the range) at £74.99, and that equates to around £25 a year, with the 3 year guarantee that Enrapture give you with each styler. Also Enrapture offer a 'Love it or your money back' scheme, meaning you can return your styler within 30 days if you don't get on with them.   

Enrapture are the next big name in hair styling, and you'll want to own all three of the stylers they have to offer, especially is the other two are as good as these rollers! 

Removal is so simple too, in under one hour you'll have locks you'll want to go out and show off!

The only products I used were these...

Loreal Elnett Hairspray £6.49 Boots
Umberto Gianni Glam Hair Backcomb In A Bottle £5.61

I wouldn't recommend applying lots to your hair prior to use, as they could over time create build up on your new rollers and affect the results, when really the rollers do all the work in curling for you, without the need to weight your hair down with lots of products. Simply spritzing with hairspray after you've taken your rollers out will be enough to hold your curls in place for the night.

Here's some pictures to show you my finished results...

What I really love about the Enrapture brand is the fact that they cater for everyone, and really bridge the gap between salon & high street products, giving us all the chance to own real luxury tools for less.

Here is a list of all the Enrapture Stockists

Trevor Sorbie Hair Care


 Trevor Sorbie, a genius in all things hair related. And his hair care range is no exception! 

I was kindly sent these products* to review...

 Beautifully Straightened Shampoo & Conditioner £5.10 each & Beautifully Moisturised Hair Mask £5.61

You know that lovely feeling you get when you've just stepped out of the salon, a feel your only truly get when you've pampered yourself in the salon...well the good news is you can now re create it at home! 

These products have blown me away, and I think anyone who tries them will be impressed, the smell is gorgeous & I love how the straightening range comes complete with a built in easy iron system,
which really does help make easy work of tackling your tresses post wash. 

Gone are the days of having to blow dry and wrestle with your mane to get it looking half decent.

The Ultimate Moisture Mask is a real deep treat for chemically damaged over processed hair, and its thick and creamy texture (and lush smell) make it a pleasure to use, after shampooing simply slap it on the ends and mid lengths of your hair, you can feel the improvement even whilst your washing it out.

What ever your hair worries Trevor has the answer, so have no fear!

Have you tried any of the TS products? If not head over to the Online Shop where all the products are on 2 for £6, barg! 

You can also find Trevor Sorbie on Facebook or Tweet them @tsorbiehair

No longer can you use the excuse that your busy due to washing your hair, these products will make sure of that! Here's to great hair days my beauties...

BioElixia BodyShaper Contour Cream

Hello you gorgeous people!

I wanted to share with you the fantastic body shaper cream that I have been trialing for the past few weeks, recently launched it's the BioElixia Bodyshaping Contour Cream*

It's a revolutionary new anti-cellulite product from Australia containing unique Tricellite Active™ ingredients and a concentrated blend of antioxidants and moisturisers to assist in reducing the appearance of the bumps, dimples and bulges associated with cellulite in 28 days.

New BioElixia™ BodyShaper Cellulite Contour Crème is scientifically proven:
A reduced appearance of the bumps, and 'orange peel’ dimples associated with cellulite by an average of 38% in 28 days.
An average of 57% reduction in the appearance of cellulite after 56 days.
A significant increase in skin hydration and elasticity.87% of women in our study saw a visible improvement to skin's firmness and smoothness after 28 days.

BodyShaper includes patented TPM™ Delivery Technology that is scientifically proven to improve the absorption of key ingredients into skin. Legs appear smoother and visibly redefined after 4 weeks of use!

This magic in a bottle really does what it promises to do, although the only thing that may put you off is the hefty price, with an RRP of £49.99 it's a big investment, but ultimately as the old saying goes you pay for what you get, so it is worth it!

Do excuse the tiny amount of product on my hand, but holy hell this stuff is so good I didn't wanna waste it!

Personally I am so fortunate and don't really suffer from cellulite, I had one dimple on my thigh, but this body shaper creme is for anyone who wants to firm & tone and generally improve the condition of their skin in just 28 days.

I have been using it on my legs, bum, tummy and upper arms...here are a couple of comparison pictures... the left picture being before use & the right after one month of use. 

Don't just take my word for it, head over to this page and see the evidence for yourself...
the proof!

Champneys Spa Products

Champneys collection

You'll have no doubt seen Champneys products in store at your local Boots, unless of course you've been lucky enough to visit the spa itself! 

Champneys bring you the luxurious spa experience in your own bathroom & leave you feeling refreshed, revitalised & totally unwound. 

I was asked to sample a few products, not that I need any excuse for a soak :) 

The two products I tried are from the Spa Indulgence Range, there are 6 different scent varieties available, but I am trailing the Exotic Retreat Range.

As a lover of coconut these really were a pleasure to use.

Here are the products I reviewed....

 Exotic Retreat Shower Cream £8.00 & Exotic Retreat Body Cream £10.00

These products are both of amazing quality & have a really luxurious feel.
The body cream has the most yummy thick and creamy texture and simply melts into the skin, its delicious!

And the shower cream is a gorgeous gold, iridescent colour which makes it an absolute pleasure to use, it really lathers up and gives lots of yummy bubbles to wash your bod with, delicious!
