I work out....

Nothing gets me in the mood for working out faster than a fabulous new outfit! So with that in mind,  I trawled the internet for some new goodies and was actually really disappointed.  I couldn't find one place that had all the stylish gym gear I was looking for.

However, I did find some lovely bright pieces, which would get me to the gym in a jiffy!

I would absolutely love to know where you get your gym gear! Am I missing out on somewhere fantastic?

Ultra Bond Lash Glue Challenge and Review

I was asked a couple of weeks ago to take part in the #ultrabondchallenge. We were sent the new Ultra Bond Strip lash glue (£12.95) and instructed to keep our lashes on all weekend, without removal. We took selfies along the way to document our progress.

UltraBond Strip Lashes Adhesive has been developed by Nouveau Lashes in association with the World’s leading experts in medical grade adhesives. This collaboration has spawned a new and superior lash adhesive that has amazing bonding strength as well as being non irritable (Latex free), heat and humidity resistant and suitable for use on natural and synthetic strip lashes.

The glue was very easy to use and the tube it comes in makes for easy application to the lashes. After applying glue to the fake lashes I would advice you wait at least 2-3 minutes before applying lashes to eyes, purely because the glue takes a while to get tacky.

Once dry the lashes will stay in place for at least 24 hours. Mine did start to come loose at the ends on the 2nd day, but for a whole day they were very secure.

Over all I really like the Ultrabond lash adhesive. Is it better than the duo false lash glue I am use to? I would say for longevity and security, yes.  I did feel more confident that the lashes would remain in place.

The only thing I didn't like about it was the sticky residue left on removal. I found my regular cleansers and eye makeup removers didn't take this off.  The one thing that did work was something more oily which I don't really like to use.  Something to bare in mind.

What eyelash glue to you use?

How to keep fresh flying long haul

Hi all, sitting here at Heathrow waiting for my flight to Las Vegas and thought I'd let you know my top tips for feeling fresh and feeling fresh while flying long haul.

1. Lip balm. This is literally a life saver, with all that artificial air your lips take a battering so keep them topped up with moisture.

2. Water. What ever you do keep hydrated. Even if you don't feel thirsty drink water, you will feel 10 times better when you land.

3. Sleep. Try to make sure you sleep as much as possible on the flight.  My trick is to not get much sleep the night before, take an early flight and I end up falling asleep pretty quickly. It means that a) I feel more awake when I arrive and b) less jet lag.

4. Moisture moisture moisture. For your skin as well as your body. I apply plenty of Arbonne rejuvenating cream in the morning after my shower. Its lovely and rich but absorbs nicely. (Tub labelled RC in picture) Then I pop on either a tinted moisturiser or my latest love, Arbonne cc cream. It covers any imperfections but doesn't leave me feeling caked in makeup.

5. Spray it. Me of the best things I've found to keep me feeling really fresh when travelling on planes is a water mist or spray. I'm currently trying out the Arbonne advanced toner which is a spray on, lovely and refreshing.

And that's it!! Do you have any tips when travelling?
