£8 PRIMARK CURLING TONG

I recently went into Primark and stumbled across a whole new range of products. There were hairdryers, curling tongs, straighteners.. in Primark.. All for under £10! This came perfectly timed as I had been really wanting to buy a curling tong for the summer. After imagining the damage these products could possibly do to my hair I decided that I just really needed to test them out and for £8 I didn't have much of an excuse not to.. so I bought the small curling tong.

The range consists of three types of curler, the small curling tong, a super skinny curling tong and a curling tong that is 1.5 inches thick and doubles as a straightening iron. They also do a hairdryer. I'm not 100% sure if they do any more products, these were the range that my primark had. All of these are being sold for £10 or less.

I have to admit I was pretty terrified of testing these curlers.. I am very protective of my hair and all I could think of what that video of the girl burning her hair off. (VIDEO)...

The first thing that really surprised me was that the curlers heat up so quickly! They were at their hottest within 5 minutes of turning them on. That may seem like a long time but to be honest I wasn't expecting them to heat up at all..

I chose a very discreet section of hair to curl first, after drowning my hair in heat protectant spray. I did it.. all I could say was WOW. I actually called my sister into my room to show her the curl. It was amazing! I held it on the tong for under 10 seconds and I was given this perfect tight curl. I was so shocked! I originally only wanted to go for a natural, beachy look but I got totally carried away and ended up with huge hair!

These curlers are incredible! I have used them a couple of times now and it honestly takes no time at all to do a who head of hair! For the look in the photographs I left each strand of hair on the tong for 6 seconds each (that was all they needed) and it took me about 20 minutes to finish. This includes the time it took for me to section my hair off and brush it before curling as well as hair spraying it.

Of course I don't know what these will be like long term however they are perfect for people who can't afford expensive curlers or are saving for more expensive curlers but want some in the meantime.

Primark have done very well with this new range and I am so happy to finally understand what the craze is all about! I am very tempted to go back and buy the super skinny curlers because, as those of you who know me, I am obsessed with big and curly hair. I am sure I will end up posting my very first tutorial at some point to show off these curlers a bit more as I will be experimenting a lot in the next couple of weeks!

Trip to London

Last weekend I went to London to celebrate my boyfriend, Jorge's, mothers birthday! We celebrated her birthday on the saturday however I went up a few days early as I didn't have work. I thought this would be great opportunity to show you what I wear on a day to day basis as well as when I dress up a bit more for special occasions. I was in London for a total of 2 full days which I have included in this post. (The day I went up to London was taken up by travelling and so there wasn't much to include in this post for that day!)

DAY 1:  On day one we went out for breakfast to a cafe called The Regency in Victoria. The Regency is a usual for us as it is right round the corner. It is a classic English 'greasy spoon' breakfast kind of place where the food portions are HUGE and the food is incredible! This place is definitely one to check off your list if you are visiting London as not only does it have an amazing typical Full English Breakfast but lots of films have be…

WINTER GLOW

How do I keep my skin looking fresh and glowing over the winter months?

I love the winter months for wrapping up warm in big faux fur coats and having cosy nights in with the fire lit while watching my favourite movies. However my skin hates the winter months. It turns dull and dry and makes me look as though I have never seen the light of day. For previous winters I have always fake tanned to keep my summer glow but this winter I haven't had the time to keep up with it all meaning I have had to take extra care in making sure my skin looks just as good without it. I have done a few things that have helped massively with keeping my skins glow from diet to skincare products to making sure that I exercise regularly enough. 
First of all, my diet. I am vegetarian however I do try to eat plant based meals as often as I can, this means no dairy products! - I only drink cows milk with a cup of tea and only the tiniest splash! Other than that I drink plant based, my favourite is almond mi…

EASY GOING AT HOME

Today was a pretty relaxing day and I didn't have much planned so I decided I would do a blog post! I spent most of my day just tidying up the house and experimenting in the kitchen (something I love doing when I am home alone). I am currently planning my next post as I am about to go to London for a few days but I'll save the details of that for next time!

As I was at home for most of the day I put together a casual outfit to make tidying the house and doing other bits and bobs a little bit easier. I kept accessories to a minimum and just focused on the clothing. I styled together my blue jeans from Zara with a navy blue oversized shirt also from Zara! I love this shirt! I wear it both for smart and everyday however more recently for everyday as it is so comfortable. For when I did leave the house I wore my black healed boots that I have had for years! I don't wear them very often as they aren't the most comfortable to wear for hours and hours. Usually I would style …
