Schwarzkopf Got2B Beach Matte Mermaid Look Texturizing Salt Spray review!

Such a long title! however I decided to do a little review on a product that I recently got back in January because I’ve been using it more lately so thought I would share 🙂

I got this when I was back at home and trifling through sainsburys and noticed it on the shelf, I love it when my hair is curly and I love it even more if I can curl it naturally rather than using curling tongs! So I thought I would try this little spray that claims ‘Beach Matte Mermaid Look’ and I when I was reading the bottle I thought “Oooh how interesting!”. 

Initially what led me to buying this was 1. The design of the bottle (haha I love nicely designed bottles and such!) and 2. The promise of ‘beachy waves’ so I thought why not lets give it a go! Now were are past the descriptive part lets move on to the review part…

The spray itself smells lovely, it’s obviously salt spray as it states on the front of the bottle and I know sometimes salt spray can dry out your hair but this spray doesn’t do that, my hair feels super soft afterwards still! Further to this the spray is light and works with a blow dryer or just spraying and going outdoors and letting the wind do its business, so I’d say it was a good buy 🙂

Going Nautical This Summer

So the temperature has cranked itself way above the normal average for England and has made it perfect beach weather and what better way to shine with style at the beach than dressed in one of this summer’s favourite wardrobe trends – Nautical!

Looking like a sailor has never been so fun! In the past if you told somebody you wanted to look similar to that of a man that stays on a ship for long periods of time, you probably would’ve just got some weird looks and glances. But now thanks to marvelous world of fashion this vibrantly quirky reoccurring trend is making its debut once again!

Think anchors, ships, blazers with gold embellished buttons and stripes! Blue, red and white are the most commonly associated colour with the nautical trend and it’s such a great style to pull off because the colours are so complimenting of each other. This summer however all our favourite stores and retailers are quickly equipping nautical themed stock, there will be a mass of our favourite clothing pieces mixed with this quirky and fun style and will be sure to bring the sailor out of you!

NOTD – Nail Paint In Cyan Blue (294) By Barry M Review

I wasn’t very interested in painting my nails until I got into secondary school when it was key to always have brightly coloured and vibrant nails, I never really took an interest in Barry M until then and I didn’t really like the brand to start with as I thought it was too runny and didn’t dry quick enough but now years later I am happily buying Barry M nail varnishes with a smile on my face because I love the colours and types! 🙂

So the other week I brought another Barry M nail varnish because I was complaining that I didn’t have any summer colours in my nail varnish collection! So I went and I brought cyan blue which is a light blue but not too light that it turns into a pastel blue.

I love this colour because it is so light and summery, I like blues as well which is probably why I picked it 🙂

Saturday Blogger Interviews – Blogger Kiki Vogels

Image

Name: Kiki Vogels

Location: Antwerpen, Belgium

Age: 19 years old

Blog link: http://www.awayofdreaming.wordpress.com

Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/awayofdreaming

Twitterhttps://twitter.com/Kiki_Vogels

What three things do you blog about most: I’m talking about fashion: inspirations, street style looks, new brands, … about music and travelling.
Name three words to describe your blog: Honest, young and different

When did you first start blogging: I created my blog in September but since January ’13 I’m really busy with it.

Why did you begin to blog: Of course because I’m always been interested in fashion, since last year I’m done with my fashion education but I still wanted to do something with fashion so then the most important reason came up: I’m 19 years old and I don’t have a designer budget. Most bloggers talk about high fashion brands and I want to show people that you can look good even if your budget is not that high. Fashion can be fun for everyone because you have many options and I like it to show people new things; ‘See things through my glasses’.
What’s one blogging tip that you would share with other potential bloggers: Be yourself, talk about the things you like and your interests. Be honest and kind because you can learn a lot of other bloggers/people.

Do you see yourself still blogging in three/five years time: Yes, I hope so! It takes time too reach something with a fashion blog.

What’s one of the best things about being a blogger: You get the chance to know many people. It takes you to many different places and that’s really one of the best things.

Has blogging helped you significantly in any other way: My English is way better then before and I get to know new products and people that I didn’t know yet.

Summer Favourite: Sweet Pastels

This Summer there are many trends to be released and I thought I would focus on one specific one – Pastels. Pastels make some of the best colours for outfits because of the sweet innocent hues that are used, and it will be big this Summer! So I thought that I would show you guys some of the best pastel pieces that will be around! 🙂

Baby pink, powder blue, sweet honey yellow, mint green and summer orange are all big hits this Summer and I love them! They look so beautiful as an outfit or as an accessory and I think it gives the right impression of Summer, something sweet and playful.
