holiday & hair

Hi everyone! I've had my hair cut! Go and check out a picture of it at my other blog, Alissa Loves.

I chose a long blunt bob, because:
- Liv Tyler and I have almost the same face shape, and her hair looks amazing
- when I was researching hairstyles for oblong face shapes, the only info I got was to not have the kind of cut I used to have! and to make sure that there was a lot of volume to the sides of my face
- it looks awesome!

i'm heading off on yet another holiday (it's ridiculous but brilliant), this time down to devon, where i shall drive over the cornish border and grab myself a pasty and some clotted cream scones...yummy. i look forward to catching up with you all when i get back.

just on a quick note, if you're thinking of having your hair cut differently, book an appointment and have it done soon before winter sets in. there's no real reason, except that it will make you feel a whole lot better about the onset of cold winter weather.

oh, and don't forget to enter my youtube contest, which ends on Friday!

vaseline eye make up remover

its october! isn't that scary? it's officially autumn here in the uk, with our house feeling cold and everyone starting to get ill again...not me thank goodness :)

anyways, i was watching a YT video about cheap, effective beauty products, (click here to watch) and i thought that the vaseline tip was really interesting, as i have a massive tub in my room that ought to get used up sometime. so i tried it out, and it does actually work really really well.

basically, you just get a little bit of vaseline rub it over your lashes and eyes, then remove it with a washcloth, and it works really well to get everything off, and it feels nice and smooth afterwards too! have a go, you won't be disappointed :)

You know you all want to enter my youtube contest right? :) the prizes video will be loaded really soon i promise...just wait and see!
