Heyy lovelies :)
I'll start with my standard apology for lack of blogging, life has been and still is going by in a complete blur due to it being the end of uni! Next week I have my final coursework hand in and my final exam...where did the last 4 years go?!

Anywho, heres an OOTD from last Friday lol. It was a St George's day themed night at Flirt so I stole this festive hat from my friend :)

Entire outfit courtesy of New Look :D

Its payday tomorrow so hopefully a shopping trip will take place and I'll acquire some pretty new bits and pieces to blog about.

Hope you're all having a lovely week!

Review: Remington SpinCurl

While I have seen great results achieved with the Remington Spincurl (Zoe, pour example!), I have come to the conclusion that it is not for me.

I have annoying hair that is a complete pain to do anything with. It is bleached blonde, to my shoulders, and hasnt grown in length in probably about 5 years, possibly because I straighten it half to death. Either way, it is at a length that I personally think does not suit curls, not on me at least. I've tried numerous curling tongs to attempt to make it look pretty and curly but I always end up looking like a poodle, and the Remington Spincurl pretty much made me look the most poodle-fied that I've ever looked lol.

It isn't complicated to use, basically you just insert sections of hair into the curl attachment and the hairdryer whips the hair around into a sort of matted dreadlock, which when brushed out should leave you with beachy waves. But no, poodle hair for Holly. Luckily I purchased my Spincurl on offer in Sainsburys for £26...I would be absolutely kicking myself if I'd paid the full £39 for this product!

But yes, overall I am disappointed that this product didnt work for me. I think for girls with longer hair, this product can achieve some amazing results, but sadly my short blonde mop is stubborn and refuses to curl properly:P

I'm considering sticking it on ebay for around £20, if anybody is interested do let me know. I've only used it twice and still have all original packaging and instructions:)

Bonjour blogsphere.

No excuses for my posting slackage, only that uni is mad as its coming up to the end of term. Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines! I can't believe my time at university is finally coming to an end. Sad face. However this does mean getting a proper job, and earning money to spend on pretty things. Happy face!

The lovely Dev from Radio one came along to DJ at Flirt. He was such a sweetheart!

(ignore my dodgy appearance...Wild West theme!)

Not alot to report, due to being broke I havnt been able to buy anything new and exciting however I did purchase the Remmington SpinCurl hairdryer, which I will roadtest and review over Easter break:)

Hope you all have a lovely Easter!
