Pearl Drops Instant White Ultra Tooth Veneer!

If you have been following my blog for a while you will know that i am addicted to teeth whitening and i will give anything a whirl that's available on the market.

I dream that one day i will have veneers but in reality i know it will never happen and to be honest i don't want to ruin my own teeth.

So when Pearl Drops released a tooth veneer i was really excited and thought wow i am reeeally going to have "Simon Cowell" teeth *tehe*

Boots often have offers on Pearl Drops and when i saw the tooth veneer was on offer for 2 for £7 me and the boy took up on the offer.

Now i must admit my expectations for this product where pretty high...i knew it wasn't going to give me the teeth i dream of but i imagined it making them pretty white.

Well i am 100% totally gutted and disappointed with this product.

What Pearl Drops Say:
Simply brush on to leave a white veneer that dries in seconds. To remove, simply brush off with a toothbrush at the end of the day.

Beauty Advice From Pearl Drops:
For best results, clean and polish your teeth first by brushing with Pearl Drops Replenishing White or any other tooth polish from the Pearl Drops range. For optimal results, apply to each tooth in one even stroke.

The packaging looks pretty much like a lip gloss and is great to pop in your hand bag which is what i initially thought i would do.

It is basically a white liquid which you brush evenally on each tooth claiming to give you a natural looking white veneer.

Well after i brushed it onto one tooth i noticed it drying instantly but drying to a cakey flakey cream "smudge" on my tooth.

For 1 it wasn't even white and 2 after i applied a thin even layer it just left a smudge in the middle of my front tooth.

My boyfriend just looked at me in horror and i quickly ran to brush it off.

Like i said before my expectations were pretty high but i no way thought it would turn out like it did.

I do usually like Pearl Drops products and maybe this product has worked for you, and maybe i was completely rubbish with the application but i really didn't like this and felt really disappointed after!

I would love to know if any of you have tried it and if it has worked for you?

I mean i haven't lost out on a lot of money as i only paid £7 but i used it the once and went back to it today to do my review and i cant even open the packaging as it seems it has all dried up and it impossible to open :(

Recreating My Aussie BeeHive :)

One morning before work last week i decided i wanted to try something different with my hair, so i thought why not try and re create my Aussie beehive which the gorgeous stylists had kindly created for me at the Aussie Volume Party a few weeks ago.

Thanks to the stylists tips and tricks i was able to come up with this....

It's not perfect however for my first try i don't think i did that bad at all :)

Next time i will definitely go for a bigger beehive but what with it being my first try i didn't want to go toooo Big...especially for work lol!

I also used two Aussie products i was given in my goodie bag after the event.

Aussie Aussome Volume+Conditioning Mousse
Great to add volume whilst blow drying your hair!!
Aussie Texturising+Conditioning Gel Spray
Great for giving the look that "sleek" affect and placing and stray hairs!

I love these products and will be doing a separate full review on them both so keep an eye out for that.

I'm really sorry the pictures are reeeeally bad quality...they were taken quickly on my web cam before i headed off to work..please forgive :)

So what do you think of my beehive?!

Natural Collection Vanilla Body Spray! Perfect Summer Spritz :)

We all want to be cool throughout the summer months right?

Some days you wish you could just jump into a swimming pool or pour a bottle of water over you...but that's not always possible lol.

So i have a gorgeous alternative for you..

Natural Collection Vanilla Body Spray ♥

Smells absolutely scrumptious.

Really cools the skin down and leaves a yummy scent.

I use this in the morning after my shower and carry it around in my handbag to use when I'm feeling hot out and about.

Good job it only costs £1.99 from Boots as i use gallons of this in the summer!!

These also come in other yummy summer scents such as strawberry, ice musk, passionfriut, mango and papaya and apple and lime to name a few.

I do always use a facial spray/spritz so i will do a review of those soon :)

New Hair Cut&Colour ♥

Morning everyone!!

Just like to say a MASSIVE Hello to all new gorgeous new followers :)

So on Thursday i decided to take the plunge and have my hair cut :( I have been growing it for nearly two years now and in that time it hasn't been cut once...purely for the fact i was too scared, after having such short hair and wanting long hair so badly, to get somewhere with the length i could never bring myself to cut it. However i knew it had to be done and plus my hair had no shape or style.

All my hair dresser did was add a few layers and take some weight off the ends so the length is pretty much the same :)

I had the exact same highlights as normal however my hair seems to be getting a little blonder now as my hair must be taking to the colour a lot better :)

As promised i will take before and after pictures of my hair once i have used to John Frieda Go Blonder Shampoo&Conditioner so you can see the true results!

Hope you all have a lovely Saturday!

60 Second Post For A 60 Second Product ♥

Elegant Touch Vitamin E Rapid Dry.....

Does exactly what it says on the tin...

Dries Nail Polish In 60 Seconds- I tend to paint my nails at the most inconvenient times i.e before bed so this is a life saver as it literally is touch dry after 60 seconds and doesn't leave any bed sheet marks on my nails..always a plus.

Contains Vitamin E To Condition Nails- Leaves a silky shine on the nails.

Be Warned it is an aerosol can so a lot of product does spray out so make sure you use this in quite a large room or with the window open.


Can be found in any Tesco or pretty much any drugstore!

I ♥ this
