Hello there guys, hope everyone is well, as Sunday's are pay-day for me, I tend to go straight to Boots after work and see what new products there is to try and buy. This weeks goodies I bought V05 Treat Me Right deep hair conditioning treatment. I am yet to use it as I haven't washed my hair yet (laaaazzzzy but your own natural hair oils is good for your hair) but as soon as I do, pics and reviews will be up A.S.A.P.

As I have been M.I.A in the past and bought a lot of goodies over the weeks, I vow to have a catch up and show you some of the products I have bought on my 'Treat Myself Sunday's', so if you have been interested in certain products in the past but not sure to buy them, I hope my experience with them will help you out on your decision.

I find looking through other people's blogs it tends to be really expensive items that are a bit out of my price range, even though I would love to have them in my possession, working part time and a uni student, it will be a dream I will have to wait on, but I hope to find similar items that won't break the bank.

I'm going to see Ted this week which I'm excited about as the trailer for it looks really funny, has anyone else seen it yet?

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

I wanted to start reading again as I found myself relying on technology and using my phone quite a lot, so i did some scooping round and found this amazing book. I read a review on it and thought it was right up my street, and for £7.99 at Waterstones I thought to give it a read.

I cannot praise enough of how amazing this book is. I could of read this in a day but wanted to pace myself. It is about a young girl named Karou with two seperate lives, on one side she is a young art student living in Prague, but on the other side she is a errand-girl to a montrous creature who is the closest thing she has to family. She is raised in half in our world and half in 'Elsewere' and has never understood Brimstone's dark work. She dosn't know how she came into Brimstone's keeping, she is a secret even to herself, overcome by the sensation that she isn't whole.

Now the doors to Elsewere are closing, she must decide to live in the safety of her human life and the dangers of a war-ravaged world that may hold the answers she always sought.

It is a fantasy book by Laini Taylor that will be part in a series of books and I cannot wait for part two of this book. Laini Taylor has wrote other books in the past which I'm yet to read, but reading some reviews, I found that her past books are more for the tween generation which is not my cup of tea being 23 and all, but this book is aimed for young adults who want to escape reality and dive into the fantasy of magic, monsters and love.

International Space Station

Just witnessed it flying over the U.K and I must say........it was amazing. From what I could see, it was a tiny bright dot moving at a fast speed, but to know that it was the international space station was amazing!!

Oh and I saw a shooting star =)

Models Own - Ibiza Mix

Models Own - Ibiza Mix Nail Polish - Boots £5.00

(I do apologise with how dark the picture is - it took severl attempts and this was the best out of the bunch)

I was intrigued to try this out as I seen it on quite a few blogs and thought to give it a try. Oh my Zeus was it hard to get. Every single time I went into boots it was sold out, I had a lot of frustration trying to buy this product but one day I was in town quite early and there it was.......BACK IN STOCK!

So I grabbed hold of it as quick as I could and went straight to the till. I was a bit worried at first as it looks like black nail polish with glitter sparkles inside, but I still bought it anyway =).

So later that night I tested it out, my first attempt of trying it out I used Barry M in 504 Mint Green and put the Ibiza mix ontop.

It worked out very well and looked quite girly but was I shocked with the smell of this product (Ibiza Mix). It reminded me of car paint and was very strong and over powering but I procceeded through and was pleased with the outcome despite the smell.

It lasted for at least 5 days but I chipped it in work (dont know why I bother sometimes as I always chip my polish in work) and thought it was time to take it off.

I used the Boujoir 1 second nail polish remover.

This has been on every blog I've read so far, but it is great stuff. The smell is a lot more pleasant than normal nail polish removers but it still does have a hint of the smell. I wont bore you with how the product works as im sure you have read it plenty of times before (that you stick your nail inside the sponge, a couple of spins and hey presto the polish is off - although is dosnt take a second to come off)

When I used the remover, I found that it took of the colour polish off but not the sparkles so I had to do it manually with normal nail polish remover. You need to have patience of a saint as it does take some time and force to get it off. It is incredibly strong (which I suppose it has to so the sparkles dont fall off) so I suppose it's great in that sense but after a while of forceful-ness to try to get it off, your nails do hurt after a while, and yet I still continue to use it lol.

How did you find on using these products? Any easier tips to get it off without the strength of the Hulk for help?

I cant believe its been sooooo long since i last wrote a blog. I am very sorry but as you know, you could have a quiet spell in life and can update at least 4 times a week but my life atm has been really busy that I have had no time at all to write. but while the boyfriend is watching the match I thought I would sit down properly and make a comeback and write a couple of blogs tonight.

I have been totally gripped by the olympics as well has anyone else? How proud are you at our very talented country!!!

Hope everyone is enjoying this rare bit of sunshine we've been having and FINALLY having a bit of Summer for a change.

Hope you are all well.

Moroccan Hair Treatment Oil

Moroccan Hair Oil Treatment - £30

As you all are pretty much aware from my previous post, that I'm trying to grow my hair out and will try any new lotions and potions to keep my in good condition so my hair will grow strong and healthy (and hopefully thick). I went to get a trim on my hair last week and prayed that she didn't had to take too much of my hair off, as I haven't had my hair cut since January I thought she will be like; 'ooooh your hair is full of split ends from all the dying and straightners I need to cut alllll this off!!'. To my surprise I was being commented on how healthy my hair was an had no split ends at all, which as you guessed made me extremely happy and I could get a cut I asked for.

I mentioned to the hairdresser that I've been using this product, 'Moroccan Hair Treatment Oil', and she told me how amazing it was for your hair. I got it recommended to me by a close friend of mine who has been using it for years and I've always admired how she keeps her hair in such great condition. As she's a sales assistant she sold the product to me really well so after work the next day I walked up to the local hairdressers and asked questions about this 'miracle' product. I was told how;

'Moroccanoil Treatment’s really versatile, nourishing and residue-free formula can be used as a conditioning, styling and finishing tool. It blends perfectly with other products and even speeds up drying time. This treatment for hair completely transforms and repairs as its formula transports lost proteins for strength; fatty acids, omega-3 oils and vitamins for shine; and antioxidants for protection. It absorbs instantly to fill gaps in hair created by heat, styling and environmental damage.'

Which funny enough was what it said on the website (which I copied this from) so she has memorized this pretty well. A little really does go along way as my hair is still short, 1 pump of it is perfect for me, but you can use more if your hair is longer or quite thick. I use this product every time I've washed my hair and I must say you can notice the difference straight away. My hair is a lot softer, feels thicker and has a great shine to it. The smell is lovely, not to over powering which is great for me and lasts for most of the day. The price is a killer........ready......£30.00 a bottle!! Which is pretty expensive but as I said before a little goes a long way, leaves your hair in great condition, and helps protect your hair from heat, styling and environmental damage.

I also found this video about this product and found out that it does so much more for your hair. I've posted the link below so you guys can check it out, personally I think the price is still quite high but worth it I suppose as it does seem to be the miracle product for your hair.

Hope you guys are well, and enjoyed the sun while we had it.
