Graduation day!

So I haven't blogged in a long time! I don't really have a reason why. I'm not great at writing and I've been having lots of fun making videos on Youtube. Subscribe to my channel if you don't already :). I made a little  graduation day vlog!

So Tuesday I graduated from university and I'm so glad, it was a long 4 years and the final year writing my dissertation was an uphill struggle!

I studied International Fashion Branding at Glasgow Caledonian University and I graduated with a second class upper classification which I was so happy about! I didn't find the process easy at all and so many times I felt like I had no chance of achieving a 2.1 grade. I was stressed, didn't know if ANYTHING I was doing was right and often felt overwhelmed with the huge task I had to complete, especially towards the end of my final year. 
After my dissertation was handed in I was so relived! I was even more relieved when I received my results, I was on holiday in Rome and I had to check the email over and over! 

The whole process taught me how important it is to always, always, ALWAYS believe in yourself and never give up when you have a goal set! Nothing is too difficult if you put your mind to it and hard work really does pay off!

January Favourites

I feel guilty for not blogging very regularly, but I'm so busy with this last semester at uni. I've been finding it easier to just try and commit to a filming some sort of video once a week!

So here is my January favourites video :)!

Etsy Favourites: Paper Cut Art Shop

Yesterday I received this amazing little family portrait in the post and I'm in love! It's the cutest little drawing ever! Totally nailed my cats little sleepy, smooshy faces and made my hair look totally fancy!  

I ordered this from Papercut Art Shop after seeing amazing pictures of their other portraits on Instagram. I sent some pictures of what I wanted the final to look like and I'm soo pleased! 

Also I didn't have a photo of us all together as Snarf and Cuddles actually live in different houses, but they are my babies and I wanted them both in the picture! So it was amazing that from my photos Tom and Kiki were able to make those little changes! I would totally reccomending checking this shop out on Etsy as everything they make is totally adorable and really unique!

Review: MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer

I have been loving so many MUA products recently. So when I saw these Luxe Lip Lacquers I wanted to try them out! Every shade was sold out in the Glasgow superdrug store which happens a lot with more popular products, but online I managed to get the shade Funk. These are an amazing Limecrime dupe for only £3 the only thing they are missing is the Limecrime cupcake smell.

I made a review video with swatches!

Brazilian Blowdry, before and after/ review!

On Friday I was really brave and went to the hairdressers for the first time in ages. I had a bad experience with a hair relaxer in 2008 and this is pretty much my hair fully recovered and growing nicely. I've heard good things about brazillian blowdrys and came across a deal on for Style Ikon in Tollcross glasgow, they were offering a Brazilian Blowdry for £79 instead of £250 a pretty amazing saving. After seeing the before and after pictures on their facebook page I was sold. 

The website states that this Brazilian blowdry treatment will 
"1. Eliminate frizzy damaged burnt hair your hair will start growing 
2.Gives shine damaged hair even blonde , amazing beautiful healthy hair 
3.Amazing straightening effect for curly frizzy hair and all hair types
4.Will repair hair to the extent you'll think you have new hair 
5.No heat humidity on holiday or on nights out 
6.Cuts your styling time down to minutes 
7.In most cases no need for straightening irons
8.only takes about an hr to complete treatment and can last for 6 months
9. No need to wait 4 days to wash hair , this is instant results
10.Botox for hair , you will be amazed with results expect a miracle "
Before the treatment I was nervous that it would be really strong and possibly damaging to my hair or scalp, but throughout the treatment there wasn't a strong chemical smell and my scalp didn't burn or feel strange! From start to finish I was at the salon for 2 and a half hours. My hair was washed with a clarifying shampoo the treatment applied then blow-dried and straightened. After that my hair was soooo soft and smooth I was amazed with the results its silky smooth, looks a whole lot longer and even the split ends were magically smooth! I would agree with pretty much all the things stated on their website I have never ever had such smooth, healthy looking hair, my natural hair is extremely coarse and dry so I can't stop touching my new hair!
Since Friday my hair has stayed perfectly silky smooth and I am so pleased with the results! To make sure this treatment lasts you need to use products that are sulphate free other than that I can do everything I normally would. I would definitely recommend this treatment for anyone with thick frizzy/damaged hair or just anyone who wants some amazing shiny hair! I'm also on a hair growing mission so hopefully this treatment helps with that.
I've not washed my hair yet, but I'll do an update when I do so I can compare the before and after!

I made a video about the treatment where you can see my natural hair better! Also today I hit 100 youtube subscribers! I'm still a newbie and getting used to the whole video making thing, but its been so fun so far and it means a lot to me that people have been really kind and supportive :)!

Style Crush: American Horror Story's Marie Laveau

American Horror Story Coven is my current TV obsession I recorded all the episodes so far and watched them over Christmas and oh my goodness so much amazing! I loved season 2 and season 3 is equally as fabulous, but with more amazing witchy outfits. Generally I love all the black sheer dresses, floppy hats and Myrtle Snows glasses are giving me serious jealousy. However, my absolute favourite is voodoo witch Marie Laveau. OH MY WORD, from her glam super long extensions to her hoop earrings and head scarf's she is so fierce and fabulous.  

So excited for the final few episodes!
