An Evening at the Classic Brits 2013

Hey Dolls!!

Treats at Classic Brits 2013
VIP - Private Box
Last night I was invited to the Classic Brits and was feeling a tad skeptical about going as I wouldn't say classical music was my genre. However I went with an open mind determined to have fun and let’s face it who turns down an excuse to get dressed up not to mention we had our own private box (very posh).
The evening entailed a variety of amazing performers including Lang Lang, Nicola Bendetti, Jack Topping, and Amy Dickson to name a few.

Attending the ClassicBrits opened my eyes and taught me things that I didn’t know about music and film.  For example if someone mentioned Hans Zimmer I would have said who?, however last night I learned that he is a composer and a music producer who has composed music for over 100 Films including Batman, superman, Pirates of the Caribbean and The lion King. Last night I had the pleasure of witnessing in person a medley of only a few tracks he has composed and it was to say the least a magical and enjoyable experience.
The whole evening was amazing with great presenters including Johnathan Ross and Michael Kane who had me in stitches, as well as a very heart felt tribute Luciano Pavarotti that almost brought a tear to my eye.  
Myleen Klass not only looked amazing but was a wonderful host and I can see why she has been the host of the awards for a number of years.

All in all a brilliant and memorable evening!!

As it was so last minute I had to scramble through my wardrobe and I put this outfit together

Review: Essie Cocktail Bling

Hey beauts!!

So my colour for this week is Essie's "Cocktail Bling", which is a delicate grey shade to go with London's gloomy weather.
Essie - Cocktail Bling
"Cocktail Bling" is great for any occasion whether it be for a fun loving party or a lazy day at home, this shade will be sure to add an a edge to your look.

I've always been a fan of Essie as the consistency in their polishes are always great and rarely become gloopy or sticky.

Essie have changed the brush of their polishes and have made them slightly wider which makes it much easier when applying the lacquer to each nail.

Review: Miracles with Moroccan Argan oil

So I finally got my hands on some Moroccan Argan oil*!!.....I have been researching about this oil as I have heard it does wonders for your hair as well as your skin.
Moroccan Argan oil
Argan oil stems from Morocco where the oil is extracted from the nuts of an Argan tree, for years Moroccan natives have been using this oil so it’s no wonder why they always have long beautiful hair. This product is packed with Natural Anti-Oxidant Anti-Inflammatory which acts as anti-ageing tool for your hair and skin.
This particular oil is rich in vitamin E which is said to be related to thickening hair; it also helps to nourish and repair dry and delicate hair. I have also heard Argan oil is amazing when it comes to increasing elasticity, reduces splits ends and contains unsaturated Omega 3 and Omega 9 fatty acids which are said to be linked in repairing damaged hair follicles.

Secure in this knowledge I was on a mission to find the best argan oil available on the market, as you know I’m always looking for new ways to promote healthy looking hair. I recently came across Moroccan 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil* which is one of the purest oils available, which is why I was so excited to use it.

The oil comes as a spray which helps reduce mess when it comes to applying it to your hair or skin, I find that it’s quite thick oil and found it easier to apply it on wet hair. I definitely feel that my ends were completely nourished and gave my hair a healthy shine.

Healthy locks
If you have thin hair you might find the oil a little thick to apply it to dry hair and therefore might find it better to apply it to damp hair.
On the other hand If you have thick, frizzy and uncontrollable hair this product is great to apply on dry and damp hair in order to tame the appearance.
With winter’s arrival this product is a must when it comes to hydrating and locking in moisture after exposure to this harsh weather.
