Blouses, bouffants and bad shampoo choices!

I'm forever on the search for an all rounder shampoo! I'm usually a Tigi girl as i love the huge pump bottles they come in, they last me months!  However after working my way through most of the range i hadn't found one that i completely loved, there was always at least one niggly thing i didn't like.  Mainly i look for a shampoo that volumises, nourishes and foams well.  I have so much hair that i need the shampoo to froth a lot to make it feel clean, if that makes any sense lol :)

Any way i popped into TX maxx the other day and they had no Tigi in stock so i was lured into the pretty packaging of Tilly Parker. It didn't smell great but i thought as the rrp is £25 i thought it must be worth a whirl!  The moral of this tale is don't be tempted by pretty, professional looking packaging! The shampoo resembles hand soap and i need around eight pumps to wash my hair....and i do two shampoos so you can see this isn't going to last me long!  The conditioner is thin and resembles how the shampoo should be! However it did leave my hair feeling full of volume!! So now I'm catch twenty two, i love the results but hate using the product! Has any one else tried this range?  It allowed me to create a nice bouffant today that i did a couple of hours ago and it hasn't deflated as of yet :)

On another note i got this lovely blouse, its sold out in my size from newlook so i went to my next port of call...Ebay!  Unfortunately the picture looked nude but when it came it was pink! I will still be on the hunt for the nude one because its the one i actually wanted!

Review: Vaseline cocoa butter oil

Well its officially winter, and with that come even drier skin for me!  Lately the skin on my shins has been itchy and almost shiny in appearance as it is so dehydrated.  I have countless body creams in my drawer but i hate the way most leave a white film on my skin and leave me cold whilst they're soaking in!  So when i saw a review on Vaselines Cocoa butter oil i just had to try it!

Firstly it smells like brown sugar and cocoa..Yum! Brazilian nut and almond oil make this oil so hydrating and softening on the skin.  The best part about this product is that when you rub it in its so warming, perfect for winter.  I have used this for the past week and a little goes a long way, plus my skin has never felt softer!
I was worried that oil would stain my cream bed sheets, however i haven't found this to be true as it soaks in very quickly and is almost gel like in formulation.  All in all this gets a big thumbs up from me, it really is the lazy girls answer to moisturising as you don't have to spend so long laboriously trying to rub heavy creams into the skin.  Definitely worth popping into your trolley come next tescos shop :)

Has anyone tried this yet?


Hi everyone, i had some spam messages on my blod a while ago, since then i have been told via email that peopel are unable to coment on my posts! I think the spam was maybe a virus etc as i have checked all my settings and nothing looks out of place, could i ask that you guys try and comment and if i dont recieve any  it think im going to have to start a whole new blog as i have tried everything to get the comments to work lol!!

Lots of love tiffany xx

Feeling peachy :)

Hope you're all having a wonderful Bank Holiday weekend!

Ive been obsessed with everything peach lately, i find it compliments my skin tone and most importantly it makes me look darker, thumbs up all round!  Ive decided to give Essie polishes a whirl, i usually stick to Jessica and OPI but after seeing haute as hello on khloe kardashian i HAD to have it!  I also decided to pick up Van d Go which is a gorgeous creamy peach! First coat applied, i did start to worry that id fallen for a streaky polish, however after two coats the colour evened out and I'm in love!
I then decided to use peachy tones on my mug :)
Estee Lauder double wear
Ysl touche eclat
Mac harmony blusher
Mac peach twist blusher
Nars laguna bronzer

NYX peach mousse
Mac Pollinator on outer third
Clarins chocolate liquid liner
Mac Zoom lash mascara

Mac eurobeat

I really want to try cha cha lip tar now as it looks like an amazing peach/coral, so come pay day it shall be mine!

Im sure ill be craving peaches even more soon as come Tuesday ill be on the Cambridge diet..ekkk!  I have done this diet before and lost 10lbs in a week! Although it is extreme, i find i stick to it as it takes the thought of food away completely as you just have 3 milkshakes a day! Anyway i will be taking before and after pictures and when I've lost some chub i will pop the piccys on here and tell anyone that wants to know a little more about it :)

I'm off to the harvester this evening for the last supper lol! Enjoy the rest of the bank hol xxxx

Attack of the frizz!

My hair is so prone to frizz, its uber porous and the slightest bit of moisture or sweat sets it off into fuzz mode!! Anyone else have this problem?? I always feel like everyone elses hair looks sleek and shiny and mine looks frizzy and dull, maybe its just me!!
Anyway for the last week I've been using a dynamic duo that have seemed to work!

Ive been using Tigi's afterparty which is a smoothing cream on the ends and headrush, which is a shine and anti-frizz spray near the roots.  Normally any products near my oily roots is a no-no, but this product is so light so no problems there! As you can see from the before and after pictures the two together definitely make a difference and, for now have solved my little dilemma!

Does anyone else have frizz problems...if so tell me your secrets lol!

These are a few of my favourite things...well at this moment anyway!

I lost my mojo....For the past month Ive had writers block!!  We've all been there!  I think the summer in general is a lot quieter on the blogging front, i actually peel my booty from my bed and go out when the weathers nice lol!! Also I'm on a huge saving project for Florida next year so i haven't spent much on makeup!

I have however had a few splurges, and here are a few of my favourite things:

Earrings accessorize

Necklace Primark...I'm in love with how expensive this looks lol!

Dress h&m...i have it in taupe too :) a little daring for me (its not black lol) but i love how feminine it is!

Anne summers bra, i normally find their stuff tacky but this im in love with, and it really gives good support, normally pretty ones don't for me!

Ive wanted this sign for ages,ebay!


Move over ghd!!

A while ago i was approached by style rush to review their straighteners, now as an avid GHD fan with crazy thick and wavy hair i was doubtful that they'd be up to much! How wrong was i.....My GHDs are now currently gathering dust and i now use stylerush straighteners..shock horror!  I even took them on holiday (soooo much less weight that ghds,more case weight for shoes :)

Theses seem to run more smoothly through my hair than my GHDS, the plates are also more "cushiony" so it doesn't feel like I'm clamping my hair in a vice lol!  All in all i love these babies...even though they are smaller than my large paddle GHDs they straighten my hair in less time, i find i don't have to go over the same piece twice so that's a plus!

I love the colour, sleekness and how light these are :)....I know most people own GHDs but just encase they break, or you need a new pair you should definitely give these a chance.  They also are the only straighteners that I've managed to curl my hair with..yaaaayyy..i always found GHDs tugged towards the end of my hair!

Before eeeekkk!

One side after :)

They will be available soon in Tescos (use you club card points?!) and ASDA for £94.96.  They come in lots of lovely colours too: White and lime, White and purple, White and orange and white and black!!

I now feel i should give other brands a chance, i tend to only trust and use the market brand leaders, and often end up missing a better product through stubbornness lol!!!

Kerastase hair masque review :)

I'm going on holiday in less than a month, and given how long and thick my hair is i thought id better start prepping it for the sizzling sun! Because of the length of my hair and the colours I've applied over the years, its quite damaged and brittle at the ends! It can often feel waxy and rough at the ends so it was time to take action!

 So i went to my salon and had a treatment, they shampooed my hair and then left the masque on for 30 mins. I was so impressed i bought a tub of kerastatse nutritive, the smell (which i think smells like fresh stayed in my hair all day and night, a few friends at dinner asked about my perfume and it was actually my hair they could smell! My hair felt so silky, bouncy and not at all weighed down and limp.

Since then i have deep conditioned it every two weeks, i wash my hair and then towel dry it..this is important as wet hair means the hair cuticle is flooded with water so it cannot absorb any product until slightly dried! Then i slap on the good stuff from my chin down through to the ends and pop in a bun....then i grab a sexy shower cap and let the heat from my head help the product absorb! I tend to leave this on for hours, the longer the better in my opinion, as i like the scent to last! I may look like a deli worker, but my hair loves me for it :)

Now i know hair masques can be expensive, this one cost me £23 (cheaper online tho :)) but i have tried budget masques and they just do not compare. For one the scent does not last in the hair, and they left my hair limp  :( I tried the superdrug coconut and henna ones, and seriously, yes they're cheap but its an utter waste of money for someone with hair like mine who needs expensive nutrients and minerals (it contains glucose, proteins and lipids) to repair the my advice is spend a little extra and you wont regret it!! 

Has anyone tried this masque? Or do you have any other faves from the kerastase range? 

Loves and hates


Gu chocolate banoffee pots: Banoffee is by far my favourite desert, and its my pudding speciality when i throw dinner parties!! So im slightly addicted to these little pots of joy, they're quite pricey normally but in tescos they're £2 at the moment for go treat yourself..also they come in cute little glass pots (I'm guessing this is why they are so expensive) which im going to re-use to make mini banoffees :) how very come dine with me esque lol!!
haha look at pheebs lusting lol!

Come dine with me/coach trip: I love these shows, I've bracketed these together as they're equally as geekish..i love the narrator and when things go wrong in come dine with me, plus i love having a snoop at peoples homes!! And Brendan is the best tour guide like....ever lol..i want to go on coach trip lol!! The funny thing is..i used to watch both of these shows years ago and my friends used to rip me for these shows have become cults lol!!

MAC hue: Nothing new here but god i love this lippy, been wearing it non-stop!

Vlogs: I love these..mainly due to the fact that i am a nosey parker...i cant get enough of glossgoss' im hooked lol, and she always shows yummy food and makes me hungry!


Stress: With all the interviews Ive been having I'm so stressed, it really does effect everything, hair, skin and the way i react to other people (been a right snap dragon) i hate it go away soon please lol!



Its no secret i love Jessica polishes, I've worked with them for five years and really cannot fault them.  The colour range is phenomenal, along with OPI it provides by far the best choice of colours. It dries ridiculously quick, but doesn't drag and the brush for me provides perfect movement to sweep around the a good'n lol!
However I'm usually into my plums, chocs and raspberries! The only light colour I've even gone back to time after time is "tutti frutti" Pinks usually leave my hands looking ashy and lifeless, but tutti has a coral tinge to it with gold shimmer running through it to warm it up :)
I really recommend this colour if you suit gold jewellery...warm tones basically...I've used it on cooler tones countless times and it doesn't work so well. I really couldn't get a good picture to do this justice, it really is such and unusual colour..I've never seen anything like it and wanted to share the love :)
Anyone tried this colour, and do you share my passion for Jessica?

Cloud 9 :)

For a long time now..things have been do i put this....tits up for me lol!! Nothing has been easy, i know in comparison my problems are a mere scratch when it come to real problems, but you know what its like when everything is just going so wrong and all you want is a tiny bit of luck!
Firstly I couldn't afford to run my huge engine car anymore so i popped it on auto trader...two days later the clutch i ended up having to let it sell for peanuts :(
Then my best friend of 14 years goes travelling :(
And finally, they say it happens in threes i blogged before..i left my job at a salon to work as an estate agent with the promise of better hours so i could concentrate on my makeup..putting myself on courses and doing lots of wedding makeups with my free weekends! Well, that was an absolute disaster...9-7 no lunch, no contract, horrible boss and out trying to sell a property on my own on the second day...joke right. Id hoped that job would provide me with lots of confidence etc but in reality it was making me less confident as i was left to deal with things i had no idea about which made me feel stupid...i was promised adequate training also..boy do estate agents lie lol!!
Well anyway since then I've been doing freelance work for a studio near me and just general bits and bobs to ensure bills are paid etc! Then here's where fate steps in....I'm a huge believer in fate and i truly believe no matter what the situation..all things happen for a reason, we may not realise the relevance of the lesson at the time..but one day you'll be thankful for all that went wrong as it led you to good places in life!
So i went to MAC to get my back to MAC (remember I'm unemployed, this was the only way to get a free fix lol) and every time i go in i do the same...ask if any jobs are going and what courses they would recommend...and it turned out i was chatting to the manageress..who noticed i had a pro card and asked what part of the industry i was in etc...We got chatting about the makeup i do for photo shoots and she seemed very impressed and then passed me a receipt with a link on it..she told me to go to the site and said id be perfect for the assistant managers role. Me being me with no confidence, thought id never get through the phone interview..but i did :) Today i had my verbal interview, and then when i got home an hour later i had a note from my excited mum telling me to call mac back...i have my practical interview i am practically over the moon...i know i shouldn't get so excited as the job is by no means mine yet, but its so hard not to, this is my dream job...i think id cry if i got it..and trust me I'm not a cry baby lol! So just wanted to share my excitement..and if i don't get the job..i guess that's fate again..but things seem to be looking up for me now, happy days :)

Have any of you girlie's interviewed for mac..if so let me know if i am getting over excited or if the job is almost mine?!!

Small haulage!

I popped to Cambridge on Sunday to get some flip is it me but are there no nice flip flops...well correction there are some lovely ones in accessorize if you don't mind forking out £45..jeeez!! I don't like the ankle strap ones as i feel they make my legs look even thicker than they already are..i just want some bronze/gold thong leather ones...impossible lol! Well anyway..disappointed with the selection i ended up buying 2 cheap pairs for round the pool in primark..and then i came back with loads of stuff i really didn't need...why oh why do we do this lol?!!

Orange sherbet stripey top...river island, this looks so cute with leggings, heels and a cardy,makes me look super tanned too!!
Floral primark top! I love that this is long enough to wear with leggings..i live in leggings if you couldn't tell already lol!
 Mink ruffle top: Topshop! This is sooooo super soft, makes me feel super feminine. I also got the peach/nude cardi from topshop too! I just love all of the nudes and peaches around at the mo!

Also guys and dolls let me know what you think of my new layout etc i love it but im still unsure if its a bit too fussy?!!
Hope your having a lovely bank hol! :)
