Review: Loréal wild ombré kit

Well hello to you my reader chums! 

I've been into the ombré look for a while now and really wanted to have it done on myself. There are many different ways of having it done. When I was on YouTube an ad came up at the side of the Loréal wild ombré kit. I loved that it looked really easy to do so I did some research on tutorials. After watching them I decided to go out and purchase it. 
I got colour number two which is designed for dark blonde to medium brown hair because I have light brown hair. I didn't actually ombré it myself but got  got  my friend Chloe to do it :) the kit came with easy steps to follow. There were four labelled items: a sachet of lightening powder, a tube of lightening creme and an applicator bottle of developing cream which all had to be mixed into the applicator bottle. The last labelled thing was a bottle of shampoo which smelt lovely! The kit also came with a brush which made it really easy to apply the mixture to the hair because you could just brush it through. Here's some before and after shots: 
Here's the back of my hair, as you can see the difference is quite subtle and natural because I didn't want too much of a dramatic transition between the brown and the blonde. 

Here's the shots from the front. 

Overall I would highly recommend this product, it was really easy to apply and gave me the natural look of ombré that I wanted. I think if I left it in a bit longer it would of gone blonder so if you would like a lighter ombré leave it up to the full time on the box. I only left it on for about half an hour. The brush that it came with was such a bonus because it really did help! If you want a good easy ombré kit, this is the kit for you! 

Thank you for reading , I hope you enjoyed! <3

Review: Rimmel scandal eyes liquid liner

Well hello to you my reader chums! 

As I've purchased a few beauty products recently I thought why not do a review on one of them? This product I'm reviewing is called scandal eyes precision micro eyeliner by Rimmel.
I think these liners are new out because I haven't seen them in my local boots/superdrug till I bought one. I was on the look out for a good waterproof liquid eye liner that will last as my eyes tend to water especially in the heat which is weird and also when it's windy. The fact that the tip was really thin intrigued me and I really wanted to test it out.
Here's what the tip looks like and there's a swatch of the eye liner.
When I first used this liner I fell in love with it, it glided on well, stayed put for a long time and even survived tidal wave! (a water ride at Thorpe park) 
This is what it looked like on the first day I tried it out. However after a few uses I've found that the colour doesn't go on too easily and that the eye liner fades quite easily as well. The liner has dried out pretty quickly which I'm disappointed about and it doesn't resist water as much as it used to. I'm not sure if its because I've been applying it over eye shadow that has caused the liner to be drier or what. I would say that I do like the application of it though because I find felt tip eye liners are the easiest to apply, so that would me a positive for me! Also that it does agree with the name because it can create the ultra thin line. 

Overall I'm a little disappointed with the product because I expected the liner to not dry out as quick and to stay water resistant. I think as I used it to create a thicker line by building it up caused it to dry out quicker because its designed for the thin line. I think for the quality it wasn't too expensive I got it for £3.99 but that was due to an offer. Let me know if any of you have tried this product :)

Thankyou for reading, I hope you enjoyed <3

Precious family moments!




Well hello to you my reader chums!

As you probably know from my previous  blogs that I have spent a lot of time with my family this holiday. This is because my auntie, uncle and cousins who I haven't seen for a few years came down to England from Greece! It's been a very busy last couple of weeks but I've honestly had the best time! We went in so many days out and had sooo much fun! I absolutely love my family and now they've gone back, I really do miss them! Due to them coming down it did really bring the family together again just like old times! Okay here's the pictures of the past couple of weeks, enjoy!
Me and Maria with the new baby colson <3

Going in the sea in your clothes is definitely the best idea! ;) This is the day we went to Folkestone beach but done of us didn't bring swimming costumes.. Maisons running to me, too cute!


Maria and Maison :)

Mini golfing, the beach and back to nannies all in one day :)



Dover castle :)

Family day in the garden :')




Paintballing and then a meal at the Toby carvery, kind of like our last supper with them! I can honestly say the last couple of weeks have been amazing! We've had so many days out to different places where we had a blast! I love the Driscoll family to pieces and I'm so glad that this summer we spent so much time together! Seeing auntie Helen, uncle bubbles, and cousins George, Christios and Alex after a few years has made my summer! Everyone is so close again and it's just like old times! It was sad to see them go home but I'm really thankful of the precious memories we created this summer with not only them but the rest of the Driscoll clan! I hope you enjoyed this very picture heavy blog and have all had a great summer too! I think 2013 has been one of my best summers spending a lot of time with friends as well as having these precious moments with the family <3 

Thank you got reading, I hope you enjoyed! 

Update and mini haul!


Well hello to you my reader chums!

It's been a while again I know so apologies for the lack of blogging! I've been very busy spending time with family, having lots of days out and it's been really fun! A blog will be up on that soon! 

For my UK readers, you'll probably know that on Thursday was A level results day,ahhhh  nervous times! However I was extremely shocked and happy with my results! I received a B in my English well an A in the actual exam but my coursework grade brought me down.. However I was over the moon about it! In history I got a C and in philosophy a D meaning no fails, yay!
As a treat afterwards my parents decided to let me and Maria (my twin) have a shopping day with my mum! First thing we did when we were there was go this this posh little cafe and this is what i got:

The cake was delicious and so rich, mmmm! Here are the few things I picked up at the shops:
The first thing was a navy crop top with the words vintage written in floral from republic. It was £12 and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it because its just super cute! 

The next thing was this blush in morning dew from topshop. I've wanted this blush since I saw Tanya burr do a tutorial on it! The problem was the topshop closest to me doesn't stock the make up range, so when I went to the bigger topshop in Canterbury I was really happy to see they had it! As you can see I've already used some because I couldn't wait to try it out, it gives such a lovely subtle glow to the cheeks  :) 

The last thing from this shopping trip was the blush brush from real techniques which I've also wanted for ages! It's such a soft brush! 
I went shopping yesterday to our local town because my sister wanted to buy this bag but I ended up with a couple of things..
Another collared top for the collection, I'm literally obsessed! This one was from new look in the sale for £9, what a bargain, I absolutely love it! 

I also picked up some baby lips because they have finally arrived in the uk! I got the flavour peach kiss, purely because it was purple haha!
The last make up item I got when I was out with my friend the other week was a waterproof eye liner as I was in need of one! I got the scandal eyes micro fine liner in waterproof by Rimmel because I've never seen it before so I wanted to test it out! 

I'll probably do reviews in these products later this month :) 

The final item is this Clinique floral tin that I got off eBay as I needed something to store my brushes in! 
I thought it was really cute because I love floraly things! 

I hope you enjoyed this haul and my little update! I'll do reviews on some of these products very soon! Thank you for reading <3
