Salon Treatment Boo Boo and Rant: Benito Brow Bar Review


My cousin turned 16 last week and since she has always been obsessed with eyelashes, I purchased the Wahanda deal for Benito Brow Bar (Nationwide) to get their “WOW – Lash Extensions” a 45 minute express lash treatment. I have heard of Benito Brow Bar before (seen them in Selfridges and they now have concessions in Debenhams, Selfridges, House of Fraser in various locations). They do brow threading as well as lash tinting and the […]

Pre Holiday Pamper: Minx Toe Nails at Urban Oasis Spa!


Just a quickie – if you follow my Twitter then you will know that I got my toes Minxed thanks to the Wahanda deal! I was going to get my nails done but basically a lot of people warned me that Minx barely lasts on nails. Considering how poorly long lasting polish performs on me, there was no way I was going to get Minxed up just to have it chip on me whilst I’m […]

Pre Holiday Pamper: Lash Perm at J Crystal Salon – I love my lashes!


I’ve had a few lash perms now but the last experience gave me shudders and scared the life out of my eyeballs. The woman was so incredibly rough near my eyes, I had the end of cuticle sticks near it, it stung, it was far far far more uncomfortable that it should’ve been. But since I was going away I knew that I couldn’t be bothered curling my eyelashes – when your lashes are like […]

Tepid, just tepid: Friday Facial at the Urban Oasis Spa, Debenhams Review


You know how you really, really look forward to something all week, and then when it comes it’s just a big disappointment and you just feel kind of…cheated? I felt this way twice this week. The first was dinner at Market Kitchen Restaurant, Manchester – the food was bland, the portions small, the service slow. The waiter got shouted at so many times I felt sorry for him and left him a tip even though […]

Screw You!: Skin Deep Beauty Salon, Manchester and bad, bad customer service


It’s been a while since I’ve done a Screw You! post… Well, here it is. This one is dedicated to Skin Deep, a beauty salon based in Didsbury, Manchester. I got the £2 for £20 worth of treatments for Skin Deep, via Wahanda on the 19th July. So for a week after the voucher arrived in my mailbox, I tried calling the salon a few times. The first few times the line just rang and […]

I got Shellac’d! Testing the CND Shellac Hybrid Nail Color at Gielly Green Salon


There has been much chatter about CND’s (Creative Nail Design) Shellac. It looks like nail polish, it applies like nail polish but you set it like a gel, and it lasts for 14 days without chipping (possibly more!). It also comes off in 10 minutes easily and dries immediately – before you leave the salon! I am no nail expert – I have recently become really fond of polish but I can’t tolerate anything that […]

More Semi Permanent Extensions: Xtreme Lashes Review


I was invited to try Xtreme Lashes, done by the lovely Esme Winterflood – a make up artist by trade who has also trained in applying lash extensions. Lash extensions are glorious, although there are pros and cons. One of the major cons is damage to the lashes – depending on how good your technician is, you can really end up with a lot less lashes after the whole process is over. Esme took some […]

Salon Review: Cut & Colour at Eleven Hair, 11 Blenheim Street, London


I was sent to Eleven Hair on 11 Blenheim Street, London over the weekend to get my khaki coloured hair sorted out (it was lightened to almost white, then I dyed over it with an ash and it went green). So off I toddled to Eleven Hair Salon, which is nice and central, just off Oxford Road (if I can find it, anyone can)… Inside the little salon (well it looks small from the outside, […]
