Recently I’ve found myself at somewhat of a crossroads hair-wise. I haven’t had my highlights touched up since November and while I thought for a while I could live with them while I grew out my colour to an ombré I’ve decided I just can’t.. So what to do? If I retouch I’ll be in the same position in a couple of months time but if I choose a darker hue and go with some rich, chocolate lowlights as well as perhaps some subtle lifts here and there perhaps my colour will blend a little better as it grows. I dream of low maintenance glossy locks which resemble the above but each time I see a photo of SJP I notice subtle differences in her shade. Although some would say go brighter for summer and darker for fall I think the sun kissed dark blonde works beautifully with a tan just as well as a thick coat and winter boots, no?
So there’s my dilemma.. Go lighter or try a lower maintenance blonde. Another thing of course is the cut. My grown out asymmetric bob from last July is in dire need of attention but I don’t relish losing another inch when I’ve just got in to a nice length
PS. I ordered the blue batik jeans from H&M.. They’ll have to do for now!
Imagine my excitement when a “new stuff” email from H&M popped into my inbox today with these rather stunning tie dye “batik” trousers featuring centre stage. Unfortunately I discovered that they are actually not available online at all, only the deep blue colour are which is quite frankly not the same!
If anyone sees these in store or has already see them PLEASE let me know.. And if they’re not in stores then where the frick are they and why are they advertising something I want yet cannot have????
After first picking up the L’Oreal version of the Glossy Stain and loving it (post to come) I was excited to try another brand to see how it held up. Maybelline describe this as a ‘Tint Gloss’ and I think I should have listened to them because this is not the same thing at all. I will be comparing the two in a video next week but I was just massively underwhelmed at the performance of this having been so impressed by the L’Oreal. That being said when you look at this as a standalone product with no preconceived notions of how it should work it’s actually very good. There’s no real ‘gloss’ aspect to it, it’s more of a cream formula which sets to enable it to last longer than your average lipstick but it is drying and within for hours it’s completely gone.. not quite the 10hr wear Maybelline is promising!
I love the shade range available and would consider buying more because of that (along with the deliciously fruity scent) as the other drugstore equivalents just don’t offer the colours I’d like them to. For £6.99 I think it’s a decent product, it does transfer, it does fade but it’s not sticky and you can layer and reapply without it going all goopy and weird. I’d consider it a good lip product for a night out where you’re willing to reapply but don’t want to worry about your lipstick smudging all over your face.

I had a lovely, healthy dinner, chicken, rice and vegetables.. Only to totally ruin it with a carborific late night snack. Why when you’re hungry do you only crave carbs? I guess it’s not so bad since my other option was a bag of maltesers (which I still haven’t ruled out eating) but still.. Not ideal at this time of night!
We’re currently in bed watching Frasier (from the very beginning on Netflix) eating our ever so healthy snackaroo and hoping of an early night.. Although I may see if I can negotiate a foot rub first
Today on Miss BB we’re talking hair removal, specifically legs! A while ago I had quite the twitter debate going over how often you de-fuzzed and I was in the serious minority in answering every single day! I don’t know when this first started, I know I used to do them every third day but now I cannot stand the feel of any stubble whatsoever. Some girls can leave them months!! To me that’s the equivalent of not washing my hair for that long, at some point I associated smooth legs with feeling fresh and clean and I feel grubby going more than a day, I’m starting to consider it somewhat OCD. I have been known to get up in the middle of the night to do them ’cause I can’t sleep!!
So I know I’m the extreme but I want to put the question out there to the masses, how often do you reach for the razor?
I’ve considered permanent hair removal but it can be expensive so I’d be interested to hear from any of you who’ve tried that but absolutely do not recommend an epilator. They are evil torture devices!
A few weeks ago I wrote about this range and promised to talk about each product individually, today it is the Choppy Cream Wax. This is probably the one I thought I’d use least and I’ve actually used it the most, not for perhaps it’s intended purpose but use is use right? I think this is designed for cropped, pixie styles as anything longer would be left looking slick and potentially greasy. It would be great to create texture and ruffle up a very short do by in my hair it’s a bit rubbish.. until I discovered another use! I wear my hair up a lot and I use this to smooth down all of those tufty flyaways I’ve had since my infamous post pregnancy hair loss.
It’s perfect! It slicks back those pesky bits and pieces but leaves a matte finish so I don’t look like I’ve plastered my hair with half a can of hair spray.I know it’s not what it’s meant for but if you have the same problem as me I’d recommend it for that use!
