A Quick Hello......

Hi Girls,

This is just a wee note to say I'm in the middle of moving house so won't have Internet for a coupla weeks. Posting from the iPhone is proving a complete disaster so if you wanna get in touch, contact me on twitter; @nicolalalalala

See you soon!

NOTD; Chanel Paradoxal

I'm blaming this purchase entirely on peer pressure.

Picture the scene.........after weeks of umm-ing and ahh-ing about whether to purchase Paradoxal on it's release, I had decided to leave it. Somehow I found myself in John Lewis ridiculously early on Saturday morning hovering around the Chanel counter, having ran away from the Bloke who wanted to do grown up things like buying cushions.
 I only went to just look at the bottle in person.............honest. 

And then it happened...........somehow the Chanel Boy convinced me I needed it in my life. Out came my debit card and one £16.50 transaction later this little baby was mine!

It's mostly grey-based, with a purple shimmer through it. Blink and you'll miss it though.....

Having said that, I think I may have found my new most favourite thing ever. Just look at's all murky and dingy. 

And I LOVE it.

This is a ltd edition, so if you really want it I suggest you hotfoot it to your local Chanel counter ASAP.

FYI - this product was purchased by me for review.....i am considering purchasing a back-up cos i love it so much....

NOTD; Models Own Misty Grey

(with added bling)

I love this.

That's pretty much all I can say about this colour.

I want more grey polishes now.....

Pantene Aqua Light; I've got that loving feeling

Hi Girls,

Are you having a good hair day? 

I have long fine hair, and I have lots of it. In the past, this has generally meant I can wash my hair on Day 1 and by Day 1.5 it looks rank......all weighed down and a wee bit greasy.

It has been roughly 10 years since I used Pantene....I loved the smell, but it just did *nothing* for my teenage wannabe gothic hair. Luckily, that phase passed pretty quickly. I think it coincided with me discovering fake tan......but that's another story.

So you can imagine my excitement when I discovered Pantene were releasing the Aqua Light range, specially for crap fine hair like mine! Off I trotted to Sainsburys, where the whole range was half off. Not thinking about whether I'd like it or not, I bought the biggest sizes possible........

So.........what did I think?

It was love at first wash.

My hair has never felt so bouncy and swishy...and I can honestly say I can make it to Day 3 before I need to wash my hair again. Hurrah!

Girls, you need this in your lives.

FYI - this was purchased by me for review, and will continue to be repurchased forever more.

Review; Vaseline Cocoa Butter Gel

This doesn't look like the most exciting of things....does it?

For me though, this is my new Holy Grail body nourishment.

I've been a Palmers Cocoa Butter Oil girl for ages now, I tried the Johnson&Johnson Baby Oil Gel...neither of them were right for me. So imagine my delight when I spied this in Boots last was in my basket quicker than I could blink!

Now.....I haven't used this every day. I think if I had, I'd have probably left grease marks on everything I touched. But the two days this week I have used it have been the happiest, most moisturised days ever.

You can buy it from Boots here where it currently has 1/3 off.

Guess who's back?!

Hi Girls,

Firstly I'd like to apologise for the lack of posts recently.............I've had some personal issues and have quit my job in the Tanning Salon for fear of an imminent breakdown.

Anyway..............this means I've got much more blogging time on my hands!

Coming up over the next couple of weeks;

Yet more Models Own polishes
Nutrogena Pink Grapefruit cleanser
No17 Wild Curls Mascara
Pantene Aqua Light range

Stay tuned!
