Review: Models Own Varnish (Peach Sherbet/Juicy Jules/Pinky Brown Beetlejuice)

May 16, 2013

Untitled

Recently I was sent these lovely Models Own polishes to review and today, I finally got a minute to try them all out – though I have been sporting the glittery ‘Juicy Jules’ for the past few days. I’m quite a fan of Models Own; they’re reasonably cheap, they stay on pretty well and they come in a brilliantly vast range of colours and styles. I need to get my hands on some of their nail art pens now! Also, apologies in advance for my grim 6-year-old hands.

Passion For Fashion – Moneysupermarket.com Competition Entry Part 1.

September 19, 2012

Like most fashion/beauty bloggers, I spend my mornings trawling through Twitter looking for something that catches my eye – be that the latest RT and follow competition, more recently gorgeous Instagram snaps from LFW or big competitions: like this amazing Moneysupermarket.com addition!

So here’s my entry:

Namely in a bid for people to stop thinking that my name is Lauren and that Ebony is just a bizarre nickname I use to make myself seem dark and mysterious. I decided to try Nice & Easy’s Colour Blend Foam (accidentally in Permanent) in Black. I bought two boxes from ASDA as they were reduced to £5 each and I’ve only used one thus far – though my hair is about 2% patchy so I may have to re-do soon.

SheSaidBeauty: August Box Review

August 29, 2012

This month I received my first SheSaidBeauty box in the mail, after using their 25% off offer that I blogged about a few weeks ago.
