L’oreal Colorista Washout Yellow Neon review

I dye my hair, a lot, if you hadn’t noticed by now! Growing up with a mother as a hairdresser, from the age of 15 have always had some sort of colour in my hair. It is kind of like a security blanket, but I don’t feel myself if my hair is brown or blonde, it has to have some splash of colour in it!
I found the Colorista Yellow Washout on an end of line clearance and was skeptical. Some yellows I have had in the past such as Crazy Colour, W7 or Directions didn’t come out very yellow, even on the lightest parts of my hair. I initially got this colour to mix it in with reds and oranges but thought why not try it on its own to create my ombre hair.

I think I paid £3 for this, but normal Colorista products retail for around £7.

ION SEI Electric Toothbrush Review

A few weeks ago I was contacted by ION SEI to try out their electric toothbrush. This is a different direction to my usual posts however I do believe it is imperative to keep up good oral hygiene. After being born with no enamel on my teeth, to having a tooth growing in the middle of the roof of my mouth and having braces for 4 years to drag it to the right place, to some teeth removed for silly mistakes I’ve made in the past, all the way down to infected teeth, I’ve seen it and been through it all. So if anyone can tell you to look after your teeth, I can definitely stand up and say please do because the pain isn’t worth it.

This electric toothbrush retails at £149, this sleek and light weight toothbrush claims to help remove plaque build up, help get rid of bacteria in the mouth using an LED sensor, and you can even use the toothbrush without toothpaste.  Accessories such as additional heads can be bought for £12.99.

To find out how I got on with it, read on!

Kat Von D Lock It Foundation Review

While at the Kat Von D Blogger Event I was given the opportunity to try a Lock It Foundation. This is something I had been dying to try for years as I had heard friends and bloggers online rave about the coverage and lasting power of the foundation.

Time trialled; 7 months

Shade chosen; Light Neutral 45

Cruelty free; Yes

Price; £27

What’s your favourite Film and Book you’ve read 2014? #Currysfiresidefiction

As part of Curry’s #Currysfiresidefiction and their competition to win some amazing kindle and Amazon prizes that can be seen here , I have been asked to write about my favourite book and film I’ve read and seen this year and I must admit it’s been quite tough to pick just two from the amount I’ve read and seen!

Eventually I decided on one of each. My book of choice is The Further Adventures of An Idiot Abroad by Karl Pilkington, and for my film choice, The Wind Rises by Hayao Miyazaki.
