Crazy Babes Quick Colour

by Babyliss. “Colour your hair to match your mood!”


I am so impressed with this gadget! This has to be one of the best things my daughter received for Christmas – so often these girly things look so good on the adverts, but are crap when you try to use them.
It’s a little hand held battery operated (batteries even included!) hair highlighter. You simply choose your colour and slot it inside, then you put the hair in the compartment and press the button as you slide it down your hair. Small brushes spin round taking the colour off the palette and brushing it onto the hair. I thought this was going to be a nightmare to clean, but I just needed to pull out the brushes and give them a quick rinse under the tap.
I also expected the colours to run out quickly, but there are plenty included and I think it will last for years. I’m so impressed! And it will save me so much time in June. I always dye my hair pink for Glastonbury and do streaks in the kids’ hair too. So I cover them in old t-shirts, find a paintbrush and paint streaks of pink in their hair; then I have sit them in front of the telly for an hour hoping they don’t touch anything while it works it’s magic; then washing it out without making a mess of the bathroom is difficult. This wonderful gadget will save me all that trouble. And it washes out in one wash so they won’t get told off at school either.
One warning though. IT says in the instructions that you have to make sure you hold it the right way up otherwise the hair will tangle. Well there’s a helpful ‘This Way Up’ written on it; but on my one, it’s actually up-side-down, so my daughter’s hair did get tangled up the first time. So check you can slide it down the hair before you press the button. I don’t know whether this is a one-off fault on my one, or whether they’ve made a massive cock-up and actually they all have to have the writing the wrong way round to work properly.
Anyway, this is a highly recommended present for all girls who like dressing up for a party. I think next year when my daughter’s ten, she’ll be able to use it by herself.

Beauty,

No longer living in limbo-land! 3 tips if you’re thinking about emigrating
September 5, 2018
I feel like I’ve been living in limbo for the last two years. If you watch my YouTube channel, you may have noticed the odd subtle hint of something big changing soon. That change was a move to America for a year. At first it was a small idea that went away again when we found that we couldn’t take our dog, Loki with us. However, after our trip to Connecticut last July, we looked into it again….
Full Review of Glastonbury Festival 2016
June 29, 2016
This year will be known for two things: the referendum and the mud. I hardly saw an act that didn’t mention both of those things. I’m sure you will have heard about both from plenty of other people, so I’m not going to dwell on either. This is going to be one long post about the entire five days, so fetch yourself a mug of hot chocolate and if you don’t quite make it all the way through, just leave the tab open and come back again later! ….
Boots No 7 LIFT & luminate Day cream review
March 8, 2017
For me there’s a fine line between looking young and dewy, and looking fat and sweaty. This is the problem of having a round chubby face, and I’ve always gone as matte as possible with my make-up to avoid the second scenario as much as possible. However, as Boots no7 changed the formula of their Protect and Perfect Day cream, and I wasn’t as impressed as I was with their older version, I thought I would try out this one, which is part of their new Lift & Luminate range…..

Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall
August 31, 2018
Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..
