Triple White Nike Thea | Fashion

(Sourced from my instagram @beauyandtheblog)

One thing I panicked about last summer, was what I was going to wear on my feet come Winter! I lived in sliders and I just couldn't see anything else gracing my feet. But then something random happened, I found a new love for trainers, but not just any trainer...the Nike Thea. 

Im very picky when It comes to footwear, but these are so streamline and simple they are literally the only ones I will B-line for. I literally craved an all white pair of trainers and sat tight in hope that Nike would come through and they did!  These babies are everything , they make any outfit pop and although I have worn them a few time , I think I will be boxing them up until summer.

If you're a lover of the Thea, you can find the triple white HERE .

Nicky Lazou Experience

There comes a time in your life when you just want change and my time came a few months ago. I'm sure you all stumbled across my urges to become a blondie, but this wasn't something that I was going to dabble in doing myself. After some extensive Instagram research I  came across the lovely Nicky, after analysing nearly every picture on her page, without seeing a yellow or brassy tone In site, I was certain I had found my fairy hair mother. I contacted Nicky and my journey began.

First time round Nicky happened to be in London so she swang by my pad to kick start my journey. Previous to this I had sent her copious amounts of pictures so she knew exactly what I wanted. One thing I love about Nicky is that she is all for healthy hair, My hair was a very dark brown to begin with and unlike most salons, she wasn't about to over process my hair in a bid to see me happy for a few days, for it to be left damaged and basically just a hot mess. Nicky is all about lifting the hair slowly over time to keep your hair soft, shiny and in the best condition it can be.

First time round, I was elated, I was more than happy to say the least, my hair had lifted near enough to the Kim K blonde I had requested, but Nicky assured me the second time round I would love it even more (If that was even possible). 

Second round, I travelled up to Birmingham to get my balayage slayed at Nickys lovely home. When I arrived (late as per usual) there were a couple of lovely ladies already in the chairs. We all sat and had girly chit chat as you do, why Nicky single handedly dealt with us all on rotation. Even though I was getting my hair done In Nickys home the experience was still grade A to me. Whether my hair is getting rinsed out over a basin or a bath really doesn't matter (although she now has a basin!) , as long as my hair looks dreamy and I leave feeling like a queen there's nothing I can complain about. 

Right so onto the colour, the second time round I actually could of died, It was even more perfect than the first, not a brassy or yellow tone in site.  Nicky also tends to colour my hair slightly darker than what I want it, so that over a couple washes it brightens and still keeps its tone, rather than it looking yellow sooner than it needs too. I get nothing but compliments about my hair on a daily basis, especially when I upload pictures on Instagram. I love how Nicky pays attention to where she places the magical hues through my hair, and Its not just a slap dash stripey highlight job with no depth or contrast. Even after my appointment Nicky constantly checks up with me to see how  my colour is fading and I don't think there's any salons that are taking their time out to check in on their clientèle.

All round if you were considering getting your hair done by Nicky, I would say go for it. She's amazing at what she does and not only will she colour your hair, she will look after it too. Everytime I wash my hair the colour gets better and better, I couldn't of really asked for anything more. The experience at her home was like a girly afternoon in, full of chit chat and laughter. The end result was more than perfect and I can say hand on heart I don't think I will ever go anywhere else. If you are looking for a balayage slayer, Nicky is your gal!

My Secret To A flawless Base | Beauty

I get so many questions on how I make my foundation look so flawless, and besides the fact that I am quite lucky to have good skin, the real techniques beauty blender Is definitely my secret weapon. 

This pint size sponge Is literally my holy grail when It comes to foundation application. I simply soak this baby in water and dab away until my foundation looks like Its been airbrushed onto my face. The top picture of me has not been airbrushed or tampered with at all, I uploaded It straight from my camera as I thought I depicted the results the sponge gives perfectly. I haven't used a brush to put my foundation on for nearly a year now, and I swear by the complexion sponge, and for only £5.99 you cant go wrong.
