Well that was traumatic: Thai Massage at Chiang Mai Thai, Manchester


A few weeks ago I bought a deal from Living Social for Chiang Mai Thai, a Thai Massage place not too far from me (is anyone else finding some of these ‘deal’ sites impossible in terms of getting appointments and once your there, getting a good level of service?).

Kose Salon Style Precious Head Spa Day Damage Care Milk UV Review


Salon Style is a Kose hair care brand. It’s a shame shampoo and conditioners are too heavy to ship over otherwise my shower would be lined with Shiseido!

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 […]
