The importance of Girls Night

It's a Monday night and I'm sitting next to my one of my best friends in the cinema, watching the hilarious Girls Trip movie,and I haven't stopped laughing. Girls Trip is about a bunch of friends - Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, Regina Hall, and Tiffany Haddish - coming together after a long time apart, reconnecting with each other, reliving the good old days and coming to realisations about their relationships and futures during a wild weekend in New Orleans. All I can think of that this movie sums up my relationship with my girls. I am here to admit that I am one of those annoying people that found my soul mates as a teenager and have been lucky enough to grow and love with the greatest women in the world but it hasn't always been that way. 

We have laughed together, loved together, drank and thrown up together, and we have been absolutely outrageously foul mouthed together - one of my highlights of the film was that the women had filthy chats that we could actual…

Get the look with Kiss Products

Nails and Lashes are big business in 2017; whether you're wearing naturalistic enhancements or going for the full blown fake look, there is no doubt in my mind that you've tried them.

When glued the nails last ages - my maximum is three weeks - and if you choose to wear the stickers, I love that each set comes with both options for you to choose, you will get a full night without worrying about damage to your natural nail. They come in a huge range of s…

The Ordinary by The Abnormal Beauty Company (or how I dipped my toe in to Deciem)

The Ordinary by the Abnormal Beauty Company; If you haven't heard about this cult brand yet then you might not know they are hot shit right now and with their parent company, Deciem, being bought up by Estée Lauder they're only going to get bigger.   The internet has been a buzz for months now with beauty gurus far and wide raving about these high end products for low end prices. I couldn't believe it myself when I saw that there wasn't a product in the range that cost more than 8.00 quid! 

So I joined the cult. I have to say that I was really impressed by the counter staff in House Of Fraser Belfast, they were friendly, knowledgeable and able to point me in the direction of the products I needed with just a short chat about my skin. I bought the Hyaluronic Acid 2% and the Niacinimide 10% Serums. If you have no idea what these mean then basically the Hyaluronic is for hydration and, whilst The Ordinary say that Niacinimide combats blemishes, I would actually say that the…
