#BEAUTY | How to get a salon blow dry at home w/ PRO BLO

Hey guys,


I thought I would write a segment on here about my experience with PRO BLO.
I'm so sad because I done a whole speaking segment about my thoughts on the Pro Blo Curl Me set on my YouTube channel, yet when I went to edit it on Premiere Pro the audio was missing.....I honestly am so frustrated and if anybody can help or send me a link on how to sort it please do! So I'm going to link my vid here but also write a little bit about how it went.


Hair Backstory - 
Straight, Thick, Long-ish...


I got sent the Curl Me set as PR sample which contains :
X 6 CurlME Barrels. (x 2 Small, x 2 Medium x 2 Large)
X 6 Hair Clips.
X 1 Handle
X 1 Travel Bag

At first I was thinking that the 6 barrels wouldn't be enough but to my surprise they was, and I believe anymore wouldn't of fitted in my hair due to the size of them. Its all about the way you segment your hair and getting the correct amount in each section.

It gave me the volume I wanted and also the ease of use was such a big thing for me, to be able to easily roll my hair and then clip it up saved me a lot of time! I feel like toward the end when I was doing the front of my hair I started getting in to the swing of it :)

#FOOD + DRINK | The Piano Works bar/restaurant review (Farringdon)


On Friday I had the pleasure of being invited to enjoy a 3 course meal (feeling like Belle from Beauty and the Beast) and some cheeky cocktails at the Piano Works which is situated in Farringdon, London. I was also allowed to bring a guest with me so of course I bought along my mum :) 


Before I go most places I like to do a little snooping and research to know what I'm letting myself in for aha so I pretty much picked out my cocktails and food out before hand and had the excitement of finding out whether they lived up to the expectations I created in my head!


On arrival I was excited and intrigued to find out that the venue was actually downstairs in a type of basement area, meaning it was very cosy! It was dimly lit with low lighting with purple hues and tables with lamps which gave off all the chilled vibes. With the band area in the middle of the room, a bar at one end and tables dotted around.
Listening to the singers play the piano and sing songs like Drake's Hotline bling with its own twist whilst we was seated was just really cool. Drake fan gurrl right hurrr...


I swiftly ordered my cocktail and it had to be RUM PUNCH, boy was it tasty....it was so refreshing, fruity and beautiful presented. Sipping on my rum punch whilst bopping along to the live music, basking in the hustle and bustle of the place ..thinking about good times and food :) 

I feel like I have to warn you that the images you are about to see will induce food thoughts for the rest of the day and will make you want to eat!

Look at my Bruschetta looking like a piece of art <3 I cant even really pinpoint what ingredients was on this, I'm going to tell you though it was a match made in heaven. There was small hints of spice, citrus but also sweetness. I could eat this for the rest of my days.  

With my main course it was all about the #sweetpotatofries...the waitress actually recommended them as they go really well with the chicken and boy was she right. Full of flavour, they complimented the chicken which was seasoned just right and cooked to perfection. It was during this time I had to pull out those song request napkins and request a bit of MJ "Human Nature" #kinging 


Now, the crucial part. The dessert. The make or break. This is it.
I am definitely a give me all the cake kinda gal, and my did they give me all the cake. I was surprised at the size of cake that appeared before me, the photo does no justice and I'm still waiting for smell-o-vision, taste-o-through-the-interweb to happen. Succulent, sweet and choccy.... ahhh 

The food quality was so much more than I could of ever expected and I was so happily surprised how good it was. The whole ambience of the venue was spot on. #chilled #cool #friendly 
Its a great venue for the food and a sit down meal, but also for a big party of friends to spend the evening as the music is LIVE and fab, perfect for a boogie.


My verdict:

Food 5/5
Ambience 5/5
Service 5/5

Price : £
(well in budget for the quality) 

Location - 113-117 Farringdon Road, Corner of Ray Street, Farringdon, London
EC1R 3BX

#REVIEW | Nature's Sunshine mini haul

 
Hey guys!
I got sent these vitamins/tablets & cream from Natures Sunshine a few weeks ago, let me tell you how I got on.
I picked Papaya Mint Chewable tablets, High Potency Garlic tablets and Tei - Fu massage lotion.
My favourite one out of them all was probably the Papaya Mint Chewable tablets! They were super easy to take, just pop them in your mouth and chew. They didn't have a yucky taste either, they smelt very strongly of mint, the chewing gum type of mint :) 
They are good for the digestive system, and can also be used to freshen breath between meals!

The high potency garlic are to help the immune system, as I have read before garlic is good to help keep colds away. As it has a special coating to contain the garlic smell it is a lot easier to take, and to me I love pure garlic anyway but I really couldn't smell a strong odour. I'm not 100% if they have worked, I mean I'm sure I will take them a lot more in the coming months as it will be winter/flu season! I mean I would rather reach for these than I would medication. 



Lastly, I tried the Tei- Fu cream, of which I would probably compare to tiger balm or those medicated creams like I-believe or voltoral. It had a strong smell of Vicks, so as well as helping aches and pains it opens up the nasal areas!! My mum really loved this when she used it, as she is used to the odd aches and pains! Its definitely worth it if you are a bit weary of using medication and want to try this natural product out before you try medicating! Its not greasy and leaves the skin quite smooth :)
