Daily Routines – Daily Beauty – Kittens vs Hair Dryer

Today of all days (28.8.18) I had to have a shower and needed to wash my hair otherwise I would left it greasy and looking rough. I then thought no I need to get it done because I hate looking rough and everything. So I did my normal routine as per normal; well try to anyway because I was drying my hair and the kittens were like what is it that loud sound, so I did my normal turn it on and off again for them to get use to it. 

However they didn’t like it very much even though they have heard my hair dryer and two other peoples hair dryers in the house hold. They still haven’t got use to it; in the end I turned it off because I didn’t want to get them become distressed or anything, and I left my hair to dry itself. 

I carried on doing what I do in my normal routine; put my hair extensions in whilst my hair was still wet part dried, and my make up on as per normal whilst my hair was still drying. Completely forgot that my hair go completely fizzy and curly as bad as it can go. But luckily my hair extensions were in because it would of been a lot worse that it is right now. 

I don’t mind it going fizzy and curly but would be nice to be able dry monjority of it. When it’s just you and the kittens no one else was in incase they went nuts. They haven’t done it for awhile for something that they didn’t know what’s going on. Yet sometimes they are alright but it’s funny that one of them doesn’t like my hair brush because they don’t know what it is. What’s even more funny is that sometimes they want to get into my make up when the box is open because they are so intrigued by what’s inside then again they know to sit away near me and not go near it. 

Daily Routine – Daily Beauty: E.L.F Primer goes wrong

Going inside with my Superdrug Haul August 2018 post the other day (20.8.18) I wanted to share the E.L.F Primer gone wrong because it literally did go wrong for me; well not for me but for the company that makes it, I literally picked up my usual E.L.F Primer from the company that Superdrug sells it. I didn’t think much of it especially having it’s product inside the bottle. So I did my usual thing by putting things in my basket as one do whilst finishing of doing my shopping in there. You may think why do you need four things to put in a basket. To be quite frankly my hands can’t hold so many things especially if they are different shaped packages. That is the reason why.

By the time I got home I normally would wait until a bit later to put things away but due to the fact of the kittens I had to put everything away so it would be out of their little paws reaching them or their little mouth eating it. I was still not aware that there wasn’t anything in it at the time; 24 hours later past since purchasing the item I had started doing my normal make up routine, I had reached to my primer from E.L.F and I started to press the button of the bottle. 

I heard the whole thing trying to bring something up but there wasn’t anything coming out it was just air coming out; I opened up the bottle lid up to see what was wrong with it and there was literally nothing in it, no product or anything. I picked up the other E.L.F product to see what the weight of it was between the two; continued to figure it out why, and how this could be possible work. Have people been taken out of the packet and using it over time? I looked at the bottom of it and it’s still down. I only know this because of the other one was down it would of gone up if I was being used. 

I soon realised that the manufacturers sent a empty one because of the machine product either broke down or didn’t sense that there wasn’t one there. I told my mum what was wrong and she was like that is very weird and we both weren’t expecting to go back into town that day to exchange it for a new one.

So we went into the store; I went up to a sales assistant to explained that there was nothing inside it when I went to go and use it, I didn’t have the packaging due the fact that my sister has kittens and I had to throw them away quickly before they got to them. 

They literally asked the team leaders and etc. They came to find me and my mum to say that they can do part exchange it for a new one; also let me have a look if there was product in the pot to which there was and I exchanged the one that I previously purchased and to the full product that had it. 

All in all when it’s not you’re fault but the actual manufacturers of these sorts of things; you realise that you have better leg stand on, plus sale assistants who know their make up brands and also other assistants know that it’s been used or not they will know. So don’t use the trick of “I haven’t used it but can do exchange” when clearly you have used it no matter how much you try and clean it. 

Daily Stories – Daily Beauty – Redying my hair

On Sunday (22.7.18) after having my sister stunk the whole house with lots of things I decided to redye my hair because I really needed to have done. I had a another packet ready to dye my hair so I literally saved like £4.95 on my next hair dying but need to touch up my double intake on things. You guys know my system by now but yeah my system needs to come back asp I hate not having things that I use everyday or will need later on in the future. 

I’m going to write some things down for you guys on how I dye my hair and I will give you advance warning I’ve been doing it for a very long time probably 15/16 years now so I’ve got experience in doing it on my own afterwards. Yeah I missed a few places still but it actually looks nice have bit of my natural hair being part of it. You guys probably thinking “wow 15/16 years” I literally started about 12 I think of maybe 13 it was around then I started to colour it. 

It was nothing to do with peer pressure or anything I actually wanted to do it and I was so determined that I wanted to do my parents had no option but to let me do it at the time. Plus my hair was lighter colour then and I wanted to maintain that colour that I wanted at the time throughout school. The colour was blonde at the time o would get one of my parents to do it then for my prom the hair dresser at the time did it and then from then on I had different colour hair until I finally reached the longest colour I’ve had since having the blonde. Would I go to my normal hair colour again I doubt it I get bored and want to go back red again. Maybe when I’m getting really old maybe. 

Anyways let’s get cracking shall we. Whether this is your first time dying your hair or you been doing it a few times or naturally been doing it and buying the product yourself I recommend always check the products are all in there because you don’t want to get half way through and you don’t have all of the products in the box. Trust me I’ve had that happened to me before ever since then I just been checking the boxes every time I need a top up. 

If you’re doing it for the first time always make sure you have someone to help you out making sure you doing it right even for a few times. Until you feel confident in doing yourself or trusting someone else to do it for you. I pretty much since I got confident with myself in doing it I didn’t need my parent to do it for me; however I’ve also gone to salon and had it done for me but that was years head when I first started.

I only went to salon when I had a proper job that paid well and I let them go wild with my hair cut and we would go for the colour that would suit me better. However I haven’t been for a while and I need my hair cutting but that also involves money that I don’t have at the moment. 

I recommend using a old towel and old t-shirt when you’re applying the dye on your head all the time whether it’s the first time or you’ve been doing it all the time. Old towel you need to use for about a few washes or so just to make sure that the colour is truly come out that you’ve missed when you first washed it. Well put it on your head; don’t panic honestly it will all still be on your head the colour it’s just washing out the excess out, I forget about it all the time and panic then I’m like you plank it’s still looks good after you blow dry it. 

Most importantly rule ever especially in my bathroom don’t forget to take your old towel with you because you know why? You’ll be screwed when you get out of the shower and you look over to the towel rack. You see the towels and they are bloody white towels! Red hair and white towels don’t mix especially when you forget you dyed it you go for the white small towel start drying your head. Then you look at the towel and see pink/red on the towel you know your dead. 

Even with having a flipping bathroom that’s white I’ve got better in not making so much mess like I’ve murdered someone in there. Hands up right now I haven’t killed anyone. I manage to clear up some of the mess that was made and it was all fine. Once I dried my hair it was so vibrant once again I don’t do anything to my hair to be honest I just let it go naturally what I mean when it goes naturally it literally goes into a fizzy curly mode. You probably telling me or thinking that you wouldn’t be able to cope with it being all that and straighten it. To be honest I’ve tried to straighten it but it doesn’t stay straighten for long no matter what I do I just let it go like it. 

It’s taken me this long to actually like it for years I didn’t because it would go notty and etc as well but now I know how to deal with it and I like it I just let it be. I do have to put my hair extensions in when it gets really fizzy and curly to tame it but at the end of the day it always looks nice. 

Daily Stories – Daily Beauty – Maintaining my make up in this heat

The worst bit when you’re wearing make up in the “Uk heat” is that you need guttering for your sweat or for your make up; due to the fact that it’s like a river flowing straight off my face like nobody knows by lunch time, it’s like what’s the point in putting any on when it comes straight off your face. 

I’ve literally tried everything well not everything but you know what I mean; using some of the stuff that you already got to try out things to make it better, for me I’ve tried to do foundation, concealer, loose powder and compressed powder which is my normal routine. I have tried doing it with foundation, loose powder, compressed powder, concealer, loose powder and compressed powder.

To which it actually works because it has so many layers on it to the point of I have to sweat more if I needed to. I forget when I do my make up and stick to my normal routine because I don’t do the whole system because I look outside and think yeah it be fine. Then by lunch time I just forget about how hot it can get then all of the sudden bam sweat start pouring and I’m like you plank. 

You forgotten haven’t you like you’ve been slapped around with a wet fish on your face. Anyone else have the same problem with that they sweat so much that their make up comes off their face? Could you guys let me know how you deal with it and what products you use to stop your face leaking from sweat and ruining your make up? Please let me know because I don’t know how long we are going to have this awesome wether for.
