Tangle teezer dream

Why oh why, did i wait so long to buy this! Honestly for anyone who has troublesome tangled hair, this is heaven. In the past few months for some reason my hair has become more troublesome than before, tangling all the time and when you attempt to detangle you feel like your pulling half your hair out, causing more damage. I was having nightmares about going to the hairdressers. However since my recent purchase of the bubblegum pink tangle teezer, its literally takes no effort to detangle my hair I'm loving it!

Tangle teezer claims "Tangle Teezer Original professional detangling hairbrush is loved by hairdressers and used in professional hair salons. It's a super smooth operator that works the minute hair is lathered and rinsed. Glides through wet, vulnerable and colour treated hair with no pulling, tugging or yanking. Hair peace at last!"
And i can say that's it defiantly doesn't pull,tug or yank your hair, it really is a dream. I cannot praise it enough and best of it its cheap.
Retails at: £10.20 on the tangle teezer website but it available at all the main drugstores such as boots.

Delicious decorations for your home

Here a snapshot of some the fab items Ive fell in love with on the Victoria and Albert's website:

Ceramic doorknobs wall hooks £25.00, love these fab for hanging necklaces.

Floral stag wall object (medium) £45.00, this brightens up any room with its uniqueness. Can be used inside or outside, comes flat packed.

ceramic squirrel stacking game £50.00, this is a lovely quirky item to have on a side table, however not suitable if you have small children around.
And finally my favourite, the hidden animal teacup

£18.00, i had to purchase this cup it's so unique but due to the colour will go happily with any colour scheme. There's also a bear and owl in the range but unfortunately they appear to be sold out. Please note these cups are MASSIVE!

Please note images are from v&a website, not my own photographs.
All available on the v&a website.

Feelunique beauty box!

So i was awoken the other morning by a knock on the door, thankfully it was a lovely surprise... my feelunique beauty box yay!
And what a great one, i can honestly say i cant wait to try them all out!
Heres a peek
Classy and elegant box, great for storing lipsticks or nail varnish's or even as gift boxes!
Fab november box!

Brief summary of each product and 10% off the full sized products with feelunique.com

So what were the products:

Schwarzkopf Osis+ Dust It Mattifying Powder
States its a lightweight powder that turns into a cream when you run it between your hands and then gives you light control. I've been wanting to try this for ages, so Ive already had a play around with it and so far i can say its a good product! However I'm struggling to make it turn into a cream, I've found it best to sprinkle a little straight onto your roots. This is the full size  product 10g which normally costs the price of the beautybox itself, so I'm well chuffed!

Bella Pierre Shimmer Powder
This is a multi-purpose powder, the shade i go was reluctance which is a green silver colour should be good for a smokey eye look. You can use it as an eyeshadow highlight, cheekbone highlight and even adding it to lip gloss, but due to the colour i got ill just be using it as an eyeshadow. 

Xen Tan Deep Bronze Luxe
Ive use the xen tan  dark lotion before but not the luxe before so I'm looking forward to trying this :) Just remember to exfoliate!

Goldwell Dual Senses Ultra Volume 60 Second Treatment
Ive used this last night in replacement of my normal conditioner and it definitely gave my hair volume, so I'm impressed!

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Natural Lift and Sculpt Moringa Cleansing Balm:
 I have used the eve lom version of a hot cloth cleanser, and I loved the product however its not cheap. This was easy to use and you only need a tiny amount, its takes off all your makeup including mascara!

Prada Candy perfume sample
This smells lush! Ive definitely gonna keep wearing it and decide whether to purchase a full size

Very happy with the feeluniques beautybox :)
6 products for 9.95 a month bargain!

OPI alpine snow

Ive always lusted after a white nail polish, but I've never come across one that was exactly what i wanted until i found this;

This gives the perfect all over white colour, for those lusting after a white as snow nail varnish. But also double as a great tip for french manicures, so all in all with OPI's normal high quality i thinks its a bargain.
