Top Bun Hair Tutorial

(Video Tutorial Below)
For the last 3 weekends I've worn the same hair style... boring you may be thinking but this is such an easy hair style and I think it looks amazing!

The top bun has been around for a out 2 years now, recently I've been using a larger donut ring and no extension and it's something I think nearly everyone can do!

All you need to achieve this look is:

- Batiste Dry Shampoo XXL Volume
- Hair Brush
- Hair Ban
- Donut Ring
- Bobby Pins
- Hair Grips
- Hairspray

1. Spray Dry Shampoo through hair and make sure you rub in (this is to add volume and make your hair more workable)

2. Brush hair

3. Tie hair in a high ponytail

4. Put donut ring over ponytail (pulling through the hold)

5. Brush hair evenly over/around the donut ring

6. Sweep hair from one side all the way around until all the donut is covered

7. Apply bobby pins - I place these at the front, back and sides

8. Use the larger pins to secure the hair and bun in place, sometimes I need a few but sometimes up to 10, it depends how soft and silky your hair is

9. Apply hairspray


You can also change this look up... why not try having your fringe down? Put some flowers around the outside of the bun? Tie a scarf round your head for he 50's look?

Miners Solo Eyeshadows

Miners have released four new eyeshadows in four dazzling shades perfect for the party season!

These shadows come in plastic packaging, contain 4g and are priced at £3.49.

The colours are:

Luna:        shimmer white/silver
Stardust:   light gold shimmer 
Nautical:   matte cobalt/navy blue 
Jewel:       shimmer emerald green

The shades apply really smoothly (I use an eyeshadow brush and blending brush if necessary). Personally I find it better to apply them a small amount and build up the colour. They are pigmented well and don't have too much fall out.

Overall these colours are great, Stardust is literally my favourite eyeshadow at the moment for the inner eye and lid, really glam and brightening! I will definitely be having some tutorials coming up including this shade.

LUNA                    -                    STARDUST

NAUTICAL                         -                        JEWEL
LUNA       -       STARDUST       -       NAUTICAL       -       JEWEL

To purchase these shade visit Miners website HERE or check out the STOCKISTS

Whats your favourite eyeshadow colour for the party season?

Sunday Pedicure Times...

I had a delightful pedicure today... I love getting a pedicure, always nicer to sit back and get pampered wouldn't you agree?!

I'm channelling the chilly weather so opted for a darker blue shade

I went for Gelish which is my favourite gel product. The colour is 'Deep Sea' - and it's a gorgeous deep blue with purple undertones. Then to add a pop it was topped with 'Izzy Wizzy, Get Busy' glitter - this is a hologram look glitter, again with purple undertones so it really brings out the overall purple.

Now my toes are done I want to show them off.... definitely too cold for flip flops so might opt for some peep toe heels!

Hope you all had a great weekend

Keeping it Cool

Both nail varnishes are £2.99 each

Hola Ladies!

Picked up 2 new nail varnishes today in Boots. I wanted a pale blue shade as I don't didn't own one...

I went for the 17 brand as I've used their nail varnishes before as they're great quality, reasonably priced and the range of colours is brilliant!

'Mint Choc Chip' is the name of the blue shade. As before it applied like a dream ( 2 coats) and looked great on it's own.

I fancied jazzing it up a little so picked up Barry M's Rose Quartz Glitter - this is a pinky/gold toned chunky glitter and looks fab on! Again I applied 2 coats as I wanted it extra glittery!!!

Both products can be found here: and are currently on buy one get one half price!!!

What do you girls think? Fan of the glitter nail varnish or dread having to scrub it off?!
