Just thought some of you may be interested in going to the Woman’s World Show, I’ve been before and it’s a great girls day out.
You can get free tickets for the show here :))
Let me know if you go and what you thought?
The Irish Beauty Show is held every year in the RDS Dublin and boy do I love this show so much!! It’s every beauty lovers dream place to shop ;) Lots of great brands and businesses and of corse discounts/bargains and pampering to be had too! I also love finding new brands to try out at this show too.
I met some other lovely Irish beauty bloggers there too, Karen & Joanne from LovelyGirlieBits, Sue from CherrySueDointheDo & Nina from NinasBeautyBargains. So it was nice to have a catch up with them over a coffee.
Well I just wanted to show you what I bought and I’ll be doing reviews on them all which I’m looking forward to over the next few weeks :D
I dyed my hair….again! This time a blue/black shade by Schwarzkopf, the Shake it up foam. My hair is naturally a very dark brown and I’ve been trying to get it red without having to bleach it. I’ve put in a few reds and it sort of comes through but very dark and would only be noticeable in the sun more so. As you know red washes out very quick and goes almost orange. I was going to dye it a reddish shade again but decided it’s washing me out, making me look very pale you know?
The only person I’ve seen who can really pull it off is Rachel from A Pretty Obsession have a look here
Right so onto my thoughts of the Schwarzkopf Shake it up foam. I bought it in boots a I thought it looked quick and less messy than your average hair dye.
I put the developer in the sort of milkshake tub 1st then the sachet of colour (it was already half burst open in the tub though, boooo!) closed the lid and shaked (40 odd times like it said) I was terrified it’d go everywhere what with me being a bit of a clutz haha! But it didn’t :) So I scooped out the foam and started applying.
Now I found this to be more watery than I expected so it wasn’t that clean and quick as I though. Also I noticed when I got to the bottom there were powdery clumps but there were bitty bits through out it too?! But sure I couldn’t shake it anymore to mix as it was all just foam. Anyway I worked it all through and got there in the end. My hair is now a nice shiny black, I wasn’t really expecting the blue to come out anyway. The only reason I don’t buy normal black as it seems to look really harsh and not as shiny.
I love Schwarzkopf colours but I won’t be buying the foam again because it wasn’t any less messy than normal bottle dyes and I didn’t like the fact that it didn’t mix great and left lumps, but it did smell great.
If you’ve tried this let me know how you got on?

I bought these for my boyfriend to give to me for Christmas haha, was horrible not being open them when they arrived!
So here’s what I got in each
My little girl is 5 and not the easiest to get her to sit still and do her hair, lately though she’s been getting better and asks me to do her hair ”pretty” like a princess, curled, crimped, french plaited and other confusing hair styles I can barely manage lol!
These look great for quick and pretty hairstyles especially for back to school. The Rapunzel Straightener and Crimper is already on my princesses Christmas List!
These all come with a safety plug, so your little one can’t use it without you and comes with a princess style guide. And remember these aren’t for kids to use alone.
