Remember Remember the 4th? of November

My friends and I had the most amazing time at ALC's Bonfire and Fireworks night on Friday 4th November.  The atmosphere was electric and there was even a fair ride! Admitidly I could walk properly or stand straight for about 5mins after I got off the ride but it was amazing!  What did you do for Bonfire night? Enjoy the photos!

Amazing friends 

Screaming for my life! 

Vexed cos the ride scared me and I couldn't walk straight for about 10 mins afterwards ;)

My gorgeous house-mates and I

Amazing friends pt2

Hair and Beauty Haul

Firstly, sorry for the long absences between posts- I've been unsure of what to write about but now have a long list of reviews and 'What's in my bag post' that I shall be concentrating on :) Also sorry for the orientation of the photos in this post- I have tried to turn them around but nothing seems to work! Bare with me as I improve my technological skills ;)

So as you all know I've started my hair journey and so far so good.  I have been washing my hair twice a week and using different oils to moisturise my hair instead of creams that contain petroleum (cos they're bad for your hair apparently)  

I picked up a satin cap (£2.49) to put over my head when I sleep and this one has 'hair growth' conditioner in it but I think its a bit of a gimmick.  Its the perfect size for my head though and doesn't fall off when I sleep- so I'm happy! The hair scissors are for when I need to 'dust' my hair- £1 from Poundland and a mignifiying mirror so I can see more detail- also £1 from Poundland

TRESemme hair products were on 3 for 2 at Tesco- these specific ones make my hair soo soft its unreal! Plus they smell pretty good and will last me a while

Lastly for hair, these are the Oils I got and they make my hair so soft and shiny! Amla and Vatika are Asian brands that I found in Tesco (£2.99- £3.49 each).  Herbal essences split hair cream from Superdrug and the castor oil (£1.99) from my local black hair shop

Superdrug are having a 3 for 2 on ALL beauty products so I picked up everything on my wish list: Gosh nail glitter in gold, Rimmel matt top coat, Rimmel 5in1 Nail treat top coat, Barry M instant effects in Gold and Revlon 'Facets of Fuscia'

I also picked up the new Sleek brow kit and contour kit: both in 'Dark'

I was in need of a new eye-liner and heard amazing things about this Maybelline one so decided to try it out- its amazing! And the Bourjois intense eyeshadows are the best I've ever tried- the black one is, in my opinion, better than MAC's carbon

Some more essentials: Nair Hair removal cream- £1//Poundland, Nailpolish remover £1.48//Superdrug, Nivea mini deodorant (for my bag)- £1.19//Superdrug and Vaseline- £1 each//Poundland

Lastly for part one of this haul, I've picked up some really nice jewellery from Primark. Yes, I did get the earrings in both colours but they are perfect for Christmas time and pretty so why not!

Hope you enjoyed the 1st instalment of this haul- the cloths are coming soon 

Love xx
