I'm ready to get my lash on! I love a good pair of lashes for a party. I dont like to go too over the top but to boost what I dont have, I have to fake it. There are now tons of brands on the market setting fake lashes, its easy to get drawn in. Girls with Attitude have a great range of lashes and nails to you can go from day to party in one big swoop.

You can buy them from Boots or Superdrug or from their website where they are having a sale! You can get 25% off when you spend £10 plus you get free delivery. Get yours now!

Rapidlash...the results!

When I first heard about Rapidlash I was excited. I had wanted to try a lash growth product for ages but really didnt want to spend £100+ on a product that I wasnt sure if it would definitely work on me. For a rival product, readily available and for £39.99, it was worth a try. At first I saw a couple reviews and knew I wanted in. When it comes to products like this, you dont know how your eyes will react. Some people report redness, soreness and stinging. Me? I had no issues at all. The first few nights I used this I did wake up with dry eyes but I cant say if it was this that caused it as it didnt stay.

I have used it everynight now for 12 weeks give or take a few nights where I forgot or was just being lazy! I'd say about 5-6 nights this wasnt applied. In the first couple of weeks I saw a little growth spurt then nothing until all of a sudden at 8 weeks they started again. I would say my lashes have grown 3-4mm using this and you can definitely tell my looking at my lashes. They were quite short for my liking to start with but now they are a nice length that when I layer on mascara, I dont feel like I need fake lashes to boost my look on nights out, although I sometimes cant resist!

I am really happy with the results I have had so far with Rapidlash. I am going to continue to use it for a further boost and see how I go. The tube is said to last 8 weeks which is the recommended time of use but I am 12 weeks in and no sign of it running out any time soon. You definitely need to try this. You can buy yours from Boots.

Pantene Pro-V Colour Protect Range

My new (yes, I have once again changed it!) hair colour is red. Now if you have been red before you'll know that getting the red out of brunetter hair is a hard task but keeping it vibrant over blonde is even harder. Lucikly Pantene have launched a new range called Colour Protect. Thew new range offers up to 8 weeks colour protection and you can choose either smoothness or volume.

There are 7 products in the range from shampoo to shine spray which means you can protect your colour from shampooing to styling. It has that clean Pantene smell and the results last. My bleached out hair is pourus and means that it is loving the frizz right! The smooth range from this collection has really helped to make me look more sleek chic and less Side Show Bob!

The range is out now and all cost under £4.

John Frieda Precision Foam Colour

John Frieda have launched their Precision Foam Colour. A permanent colour range which takes away all the stress and mess of home dye. Instead of your usual cream or liquid colour, the foam means no dripping, no staining and even, flawless colour as it expands through your hair.

There is no horrible smell to contend with and you can carry on your day while you wait for the developing time to complete knowing you wont leave drips around the house or on your forehead!

There are 20 colours to chose from in the collection from Blonde to Red. You can become the shade you want without the worry of patchy and uneven colour. Development time only takes 20 minutes and 30 mins to cover stubborn greys.

Precision Foam Colour is out in stores now ready for your new Christmas shade! For more in formation on Precision Foam Colour visit
