Lean, Mean, Fat Reducing, Sucking Machine: Bliss Fatgirlslim

I have to say, squeezing spa appointments into busy working weeks can be a bit of a nightmare, leaving no time to eat my lunch, let alone relax. With a shift in cosmetic technology it is now possible to turn our bedrooms into an ‘at-home-spa’.  While doing some DIY spa research I came across the new Bliss Fatgirlslim Lean (mean, fat reducing, grilling - sorry George Forman) Machine. It makes some pretty bold claims, to beat cellulite and encourage detoxification and contour the body. Hello bikini bod!

How is that possible? I hear you sister. Apparently, by using a mixture of sucking, rolling and pulsating massage it boosts absorption of their own fat busting cream and stimulates circulation. They recommend using it every day on your wobbly bits for maximum effect. 

The term hoover scares me first of all. How can something hoover up your fat? It sounds painful, all that skin being sucked up into what sounds like a hand held vacuum cleaner, the type my dad uses to clean his car. But Bliss are a reputable spa brand, so I hope for all the women out there shelling out £120 for this that it gives you a body like Gisele. If you want to try it, it is a lot cheaper than having a body wrap in a spa, you can buy it HERE or at Harrods.

Stay beautiful,

How blooming cute are these lip balms?! These little cubes are the brain child of lipcare brand Balmi, which I haven't heard of. They come in small plastic tubs, perfect for your handbag and have a unique conical balm. It contains a natural blend of shea butter and jojoba oil, leaving lips moisturised, soft and smooth with SPF 15, so great if you are off skiing.

Balmi is available in four flavours: strawberry, coconut, raspberry and mint, priced at £4.99 each. I don't think they are available yet, but stockists will include Boots,, Tesco, Snow & Rock and Mountain Warehouse stores, or you can get them HERE.

From Hungers Games to Dior

Can we just stop for a second and appreciate the beauty of this woman!! Okay so she, herself has admitted these photos are heavily Photoshopped, but still! 

These are the new images of Jennifer Lawrence, well know for her role in the Hunger Games, in her ad campaign for Dior.


Pastel Power: L'Oréal Paris Feria Pastel Toning Conditioner in Pink Panther

A/W 13 Fashion Week was jam packed full of ambitious hairstyles. Some you would wear to the office and some you just wouldn't. Perhaps the Givenchy show in Paris is one of the latter.

But, never one to give up on a trend I thought I would give it a go. Armed with my latex gloves and a tube full of pink toner I set to the challenge. I used L'Oréal Paris Feria Pastel Toning Conditioner in Pink Panther, hoping to get beautiful dip dyed ends that would make my hipster sister jealous. The directions say to leave it on for 15 minutes, but after 30 I felt the toner had sufficient time to sink into my porous, damaged tips. I was surprised to see the water running off the hair was clear, so I wasn't expecting brilliant results.

Once I dried my hair, this was the result.

You can see some hint of pink...

My verdict on this is pretty underwhelming. It washed out after one wash, but if you want it for a festival or party then it would be perfect. I did get a lot of compliments. The girls in the Vogue office loved it so much they asked me to write it on the blog, you can see that HERE.  The L'Oreal Paris Feria Pastel Toning Conditioner in Pink Panther is £5.79, available from boots or HERE.

 Stay beautiful,
