I mentioned on Twitter, that I attended Scarlett's Bloggers festival a month ago. It was sick, and I showcased the event on my snapchat, and did a Saturday #fblchat during the event. As well as the lovely food and peeps. I got to mingle with brads galore. I actually missed Browhaus at the event, but as a thank you for attending, I received a discount from Browhaus, the Islington branch. Since, I have alot of time on my hands, I decided to go and have them done, so I could feel somewhat glamorous. I mean, who doesn't want to feel glam every now and again?
The service I went for was the lashes in bloom: strand by strand extensions. Which is usually £58. Now you maybe thinking woah! But good lash extensions are usually around the £40-£50 mark; and I have had too many horror stories, to cheap out on the service. A swollen eye, reaction to the glue or lashes that fall out after a few minutes isn't worth it! The whole service was so calming, I almost fell asleep. It started with the beautician laying me down and explaining in full, the procedure. We discussed the length and the overall look I was going for. Since I have pretty long lashes, I just wanted to enhance what I had, to look more natural. She worked away for about 30-40 mins and I let her do her thing. When she was done, I loved the results! I was given a complementary infill a week later to replace the lashes that had grown out. But I deffo felt glam, and looked it too! Aftercare was also discussed, so I just have to be careful with removing my eye make up, and use a water based make-up remover.
As I have been dying to show off my lashes, I have also been dying to show of my grey wrap maxi dress that I got from Ebay. Literally, Ebay has been saving me y'all. I have always had a soft spot for splits and wrap shirt dresses, so this dress encompassed both my loves in one place. The colour and style make it a perfect outfit to be styled in different ways. I chose to (albeit begrudgingly) embrace Autumn/Winter and pair this dress with my trusty select fashion oxblood, floppy hat and pair it with my oxblood new look lace up boots.
I am glad that I was able to wear these boots, cause last time I wore them, they gave me a bit of trouble. In hindsight, I should've gone a size down, but they seemed comfy this time. They were a mission to walk around the whole day with a few months back. But I couldn't give them away! Great decision to keep them, right?
All in all I love my dress and my lashes? What do you think..are you a fan?
