Apart from being your saving grace during a cold that just won’t quit, the vitamin can help brighten dark spots, even out skin tone, and support collagen production. In other words, there’s a reason why there are so many serums with Vitamin C — it’s a versatile ingredient that can work wonders for the skin.
Whether your dermatologist recommended adding one to your routine, or your friend is swearing by their vitamin C splurge and you want in on the hype, here are a few of the best out right now.

My hair journey isn’t unique at all, and like so many, I’ve experienced a love-hate relationship with my brown tresses. After years of dyeing, straightening, and neglecting my hair, I decided to go heat-free. And while my hair is the healthiest it’s ever been, after many years of embracing my natural hair, it felt like my hair never fully healed.
The healing process was disheartening at times since many girls would comment on my hair. While I would change in PE, one girl would make a point to touch my hair and inspect my hair and say it looked “really dry”. There were also many instances when people told me my hair would look “so much better” if I just “did it” (a term referencing the straightening of your hair).
As I grew older and less susceptible to snarky comments, I realised there was absolutely nothing wrong with my type…

While filing your nails I bet you don’t really think so much about your nail shape! In this post we will go over different styles of nail shapes and also a how to guide on how to file them into the shapes. its important to take into consideration your lifestyle when picking out nail shapes, stilletto nails are a no no for a hairdresser etc. if you are still unsure about following my instructions there are so many good tutorials on youtube on how to create shapes on filed nails. Happy filing !
First off we will start with the most common nail shape :
Round Nails : Round nails are the most common nail shape and are suitable for just about any woman, very suitable for people who are hairdressers or beauticians, to achieve this look file the free ridge from side wall to side wall in a round manner.
Square shape : This is a very glamorous classic nail shape, it will make any nail polish look fabulous. To achieve this look file the sides of the free ridge up and down and then file the tops straight across, These style of nails are perfect for an office girl who types and picks up the phone, as there are no pointy ends getting in the way.
Squoval or squared oval : The squoval is basically a squared off oval shape, to create this look create a square nail by filing the sides of the free ridge up and down and filing the tops straight across and then gently just round of the left and right sides ever so slightly to create the squoval vibe!
Oval shape : This shape is very similar looking to round shaped nails but there are differences, oval nails are longer and a bit higher and rounder will be smaller in height, the roundness on the sides of the oval nail are more prominent than on round ! To achieve this look you will keep the sides of the free ridge straight and like you are doing a square and then you would round of the right and left edges. Similar method to a squoval nail but on squoval the left and right edges of made obviously square and not rounded !
Just wanted to share with you a very quick review of makeup revolutions neon orange nail polish, as you can see in the pictures it definitely delivers as being ” neon ” This is one of my all time favourite nail polishes. When you are outside the shine off it is even better it just seems to glow in the natural light and looks so so pretty !
You can find this nail polish online or instore at Superdrug, they also have more colours in the neon range to choose from. Let me know in the comment section what your thoughts are on the makeup revolutions neon nail polish, I think the neon nail range is the best on the market if I’m honest but who knows, does anyone have another neon polish to suggest ?
Ikrush.com like a few other fashion boutiques do mystery bags called ” lucky dips” they have a clothing one and a footwear one. you receive one item and can give them your shoesize and dress size and then wait on a surprise in the post! I ordered a few just for a bit of fun and I want to show you what I received and also how I styled it.
So in my lucky dips I received, a pair of black fluffy slippers, Black shiny boots, Brown leather style boots, velvety grey heeled boots and a green dress. See all the pictures below, it was a bit of hit and miss. The items I liked most were the brown boots and fluffy slippers.
Overall I enjoyed the process of waiting on my surprises and the fact I didn’t know what was coming, it was fun. So I would recommend lucky dips from online boutiques but there will always be items that you don’t like and that’s just part of the surprise because not everyone’s taste is the same.
