To celebrate the launch of TGI Friday’s new cocktail menu, last Thursday we were invited along to the Glasgow venue for an evening of cocktail tasting and live art creations, not too bad for a Thursday night! To celebrate the menu launch, 100 bespoke artworks are being created from the inspiration of the 100 cocktails on offer, inspired by the colours, flavours and origins included in the menu. While the art creators were working their magic we did get stuck in with a little bit of art creation ourselves, though after a few cocktails it’s safe to say our attempts were ..interesting. Here’s what happened.
It always amazes me when the world of beauty comes up with new formulations and things out of the ordinary. It wasn’t too long ago when all the new nail polish textures were introduced and everyone was sporting crackle nails. It’s safe to say, I love a bit of a gimmick. In my recent Summer Fragrances post I mentioned that a special new perfume had entered my life and this is the day I tell you all about it. When I was introduced to the Escentric Molecules Molecule 01 perfume, I was so interested in the concept that I had to pick one up and see what all the fuss is about.
I love a good beauty sale as much as the next beauty blogger but mention the words Diptyque, Space NK and sale and I can’t be held responsible for my actions. Also with the excuse to treat myself after graduating and finally getting my degree (woo hoo!), my usual self restraint was nowhere to be found. I don’t shop in Space NK that often, mainly because I can usually find offer codes for elsewhere or the fact that the nearest store is roughly 2 hours away but my oh my do they know how to do a sale. Being the candle obsessor that I am, I picked up not one.. but 5 candles, ouch! Here’s what I thought of them.
No matter what your hair type, colour, length or style is, we bet you’re searching for that wonder product to sort out your hair nightmare. We had both been looking for something to really add a bit of life and shine back into our dull locks and we found it in the form of these two lovely products. The Chroma Riche range from Kerastase delivers a blast of shine and protection to coloured or dull hair. The range is primarily for those with coloured hair, but also works wonders for hair that’s looking a little more lackluster than luxurious.
Believe us when we say we put this to the ultimate test. As Sami had recently highlighted her hair, the Bain Chroma Riche Shampoo* really helped her maintain a rich healthy vibrancy to the colour without weighing the hair down. Whereas Lisa (who has never dyed her hair) is stuck somewhere in between shades so feels her hair can look quite dull. The Chroma Riche Treatment Masque* really helped add shine and life back into her hair. Rambling aside, we were both thrilled with the results we achieved when using these products. Even more exciting one of our lucky readers is in with the chance of winning a Shampoo, Conditioner and Treatment from the Kerastase range courtesy of Bellezo.com, one of the UK’s top quality suppliers of hair and beauty products from a wide range of haircare brands!
Sound good? Heres how to enter the giveaway!
Recently we’ve both been redecorating our bedrooms and looking for inspiration online. We both have quite similar tastes in colour but while Lisa has a lot more old fashioned decorative pieces, Sami’s taste is slightly more modern. It probably shows in our blog photographs, we’ve even been told people can tell exactly who’s writing the post before seeing the name! While collecting these images it’s often a bit difficult to remember where it came from or even remembering to bookmark the page, so thats where Pinterest comes in.
Pinterest is a website which has just launched in the UK and if you haven’t heard of it, it basically enables you to “Pin” images from around the web and compile them into boards. Basically it’s a little bit like scrapbooking, with less mess!
