Laser Hair Removal - Test Patch Results & First Full Treatment

Way back when on the 3rd Jan 2014 I had my first full session of laser hair removal with the Soprano XL laser. This was 2 weeks after I'd had my test patch. I didn't shave my legs in this 2 week period to see if anything happened, I didn't notice anything quite yet and had to shave my legs the night before my next treatment.

The procedure was very much the same as described in my first post, but this time done all over my legs (apart from my tattoo). We popped on our protective glasses, added the ultra sound gel over my legs, a leg at a time, then off we went. 

We started with the top half of my right leg, once that was done the ultra sound gel was removed and an aloe vera gel was applied. This was repeated on my top half of my left leg, then I flipped over and we did the backs of my legs. For convenience I recommend wearing a dress or shorts, if it's a little cold wear tights and a dress. Then you don't have to be sat in your pants with a towel over you whilst being treated by someone you don't really know.

A day after my full treatment I actually started noticing a difference in the test patch area! The hairs on my legs grow so quick, I shave my legs and the next day there's hair growing back again. This was the case with my legs apart from the test patch area! There were hardly any hairs growing back.

Here's images of my legs 13 days after my full treatment. In the first photo that is how most of my legs looked (knee down anyway, I only have fine faint hairs on my thighs). The image below is the test patch area. Already a reduced amount and the skin looks better too.

Now this doesn't mean in the test patch area it's going to be hair free forever. Around 20% of the hairs in that area will have been killed though, but a lot of the hairs will grow back, but thinner. The more procedures I have, the more hairs will be killed. It should take around 6 treatments, I will also have 3 more top up treatments after if needed.

I found the treatment really relaxing, especially the backs of my legs as I was laying on my front, I really could have fallen asleep!

You can watch the second part of the mini documentary following my experience here.

So sorry I've been behind on writing these posts! I have been filming the procedures myself too for my YouTube Channel. How would you all like to see them? Grouped together in a longer video or kept separate in parts about the test patch, first treatment and results, second treatment and results etc?

Nicole X Missguided outfit + Giveaway!

 Top c/o / Missguided
Leggings c/o / Missguided
Heels / Primark
Necklace / Vivienne Westwood
Lipstick c/o / Missguided, Barry M 160

So I had to get this outfit as Nicole looked seriously amazing it the crop top and leggings combo, but *sigh* it's not quite the same on me. I do love how high waisted the leggings are, they help lengthen the look of the old legs! But I just wish they fitted better as I did already size down.

The top has a seriously classy and flattering design. Although it's rather cropped, the high neckline balances that out and the flirty glimpse of the shoulders through the mesh sleeves gives a more feminine feel.

Nicole X Missguided

Missguided have collaborated with the beautiful Nicole Scherzinger for an exiting new collection! You all must have heard about it by now, it's all over social media and you can see why!

The collection ranges from £15-£50 with a play of textures like faux leather and fishnet. The colour palette is monochrome and cobalt. Perfectly minimal and very wearable.

These are the pieces I've picked out:





Received the black crop top with faux leather leggings so far, I just had to get that outfit as she looks incredible in the lookbook!
The crop top fits like a dream! How ever I got my size in the leggings and they were tooooooo big. I got them in a size smaller and they fit better, but ideally I would size down once more to get them to be skin tight like they are on Nicole.

My Company Magazine Photoshoot!

 photo IMG_1215fw.jpg

Photographer - Paul Whitfield
Stylist - Sarah Barlow
Mua - Sophie Higgingson

January 24th was the day I had a photoshoot for Company Magazine! I was one of their bloggers used for their Street Girl feature, and this was the East London special.

I was so excited for the shoot, I was intrigued with how I would be styled and excited to get my makeup done and be photographed for a magazine! The MUA actually like my eye makeup so kept that and then re-did the rest. Quite a compliment for a makeup artist to say they liked how I did my makeup.

I also got to hang around with Amy who kindly filmed some footage of me being photographed which you can watch in my vlog above.

I almost peed my pants when told we made it onto the cover! I'm so happy with my double page spread inside. It's so surreal and it was such an enjoyable experience. And Company also featured my vlog on their website!

Thank you to everyone who's tweeted and mentioned me on instagram saying they've read my feature, it all means a lot. I'd not be doing these exciting things with out you guys after all <3

Idle Hands Jewellery

 Jewellery c/o Idle Hands

That necklace! The most beautiful taxidermy butterfly, it's just so perfect! The first thing I fell in love with from Idle Hands

I then spotted the hand carved ox bone ring and was thrilled to see there was a matching necklace too! If you like those there's also earrings to complete the set.

There's something so timeless about these pieces, they are quite different to my recent jewellery items which makes me love them even more <3

Cage City Meets Photoshoot!

At the start of the week I ventured down to London for a shoot with Cage city!
I styled these 6 outfits myself and had a fun mini shoots in their studio, see my interview on their website here.

I've been following these guys for a while now, I love seeing their shoots with other bloggers, seeing how everyone comes in and styles things in their own way. The stock is amazing! SO MANY amazing Mink Pink and Evil Twin times, I was in love!

Cage City is perfect as they are on trend but different, also stocking an amazing range of independent designer pieces. 

All items worn (apart from the jewellery and shoes) are stocked at Cage City, which item or outfit is your favourite?
