Why I decided to cancel my Glossybox Subscription.


To be honest I have been unhappy with my monthly boxes for the past couple of months now so decided to finally take the plunge and cancel my subscription. I received my September box and am so unimpressed that I'm not even going to bother to put a post up on it. In the beginning when in was a £10 a month box and the contents was actually excellent value for money I thought Glossybox was the best thing since sliced bread. The next thing I knew it was up to £12.95 and the contents was slowly decreasing in quality. 

The Beauty Profile thingy-ma-bob is a load of crap because they keep sending me creams and potions for my wrinkles even though I'm 17 and have said so in my beauty profile. I also remember them asking me what I would prefer to be sent (such as skincare, haircare, make-up etc) and I chose make-up and haircare. So for them to keep sending me skincare products, and for them to be all wrong for my skin it just goes to show it means nothing. 

Last months box came with two broken products in and I actually tweeted Glossybox to tell them about the problem and they never answered although I could see that other subscribers had the same problem. I do love the concept of the beauty boxes though so am thinking about changing over brands. If anyone subscribes to another one pleeease could you leave recommendations of the boxes you like as I'll feel a bit lost without my monthly beauty fix!

Last of the Summer Nails..

As Summer is about to draw to a close, even though we haven't really had one, I thought I'd get the last of my bright nails in whilst I can.

What you will need:
-Base and Top Coat
-Nail colour of your choice.
-Nail art tape (I got mine from here. )
-Scissors (to cut the tape)

What to do:

1: Apply Base Coat.
2: Apply 2-3 coats of your chosen nail polish.
3: Apply top coat. I applied the top coat before the tape as it quickens the drying time of the varnish so it doesn't smudge when it's time for the tape.
4:Once top coat is dry apply first colour of tape from about half way down the nail, diagonally downwards. Repeat with the next 2 colours of tape around 1mm above each other.
5:Apply another layer of top coat.

P.S Don't forget to follow as I have an exciting GIVEAWAY coming up! :)

Hope you like it! Have a great day! xx

Bed Head Dumb Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner Review

First of all I want to apologize for not posting for a while, I've just been super busy getting everything ready for college as I start on Monday! 

I mentioned a while back in my July Favourites that I loved this shampoo and conditioner and would do a review on it. Well since then, my opinion has changed big time on them. At first I loved them because they made my hair feel super smooth, and helped keep my hair vibrant as I'd just had it highlighted. But since then the condition of my hair has changed drastically. It's dry and frizzy and feels sooo sticky no matter how well I rinse my hair after the conditioner. I literally can't do anything with my hair as whatever I do, it just looks frizzy and dull, and if I wear it down it just gets knotty because my hair sticks to itself! Gross, I know!  I had little travel bottles of Toni and Guy Shampoo and Conditioner so I tried that, and my hair just felt so much better afterwards. I'm really gutted about this as its quite expensive and I bought the trade-size bottles :(

Let me know if you've tried this, and if you had a similar experience. Have a great day! xx
