MUSIC I'LL BE LISTENING TO ON HOLIDAY

I am going on holiday in tomorrow and whenever I go on away I always make sure that my phone is stocked up with some really good tunes! So for todays post I will be sharing some of the songs I have downloaded and that are my current favourites, that I will be listening to religiously in the next two weeks. I love tropical house music and anything that is really summery, I first discovered this genre of music about three years ago and this has been my preferred music choice ever since. Soundcloud is my go to for this type of music, these are just a minute selection of my favourites - you can follow me on my soundcloud account here although a lot of the music I listen to is on my 'likes' here.  This doesn't include the songs I'll be listening to on my Spotify which are a bit more 'main stream' like Ariana's new album etc.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH EYELASH EXTENSIONS

When I was preparing for this blog post, for a moment I got stressed thinking that the eyelashes my beautician uses were made of real mink fur! But after some research I found that the brand of lashes my salon uses (Hollywood Lashes) only use synthetic fibres which are meant to mimic the look of mink fur. If I had found out that they used real fur I would have cancelled my appointment as the method of collecting the fur is obviously not just by 'brushing the animals coat' as a lot of beauticians on the internet like to claim it is. Honestly how naive can you be to think in countries who have minimal to no animal welfare laws, on huge fur farms sit and brush aggressive mink's coats daily to collect their fur?!? I highly doubt it pal!!

So because I found out that they were synthetic I was as happy as can be and kept my appointment. I get them done at a local salon and first had them done for my summer holiday last year. I was so impressed with how they looked I wanted them again for this summer holiday. Having eyelash extensions cuts down makeup application majorly. Applying mascara is the bane of my life and with eyelash extensions you don't even need to bother! Its like permanently having false eyelashes on but you can't feel them at all! The application process takes about 1 to 1 & 1/2 hours and it is so relaxing, you just lie there with your eyes closed and you can bearly feel the beautician doing anything to you! The lashes are individual and your beautician separates your natural lashes with a tool and places the extension in the middle of two, right on the lash line. The actual eyelashes are so light, when they have all been applied you can't feel a difference at all, it just feels like your natural eyelashes, they're not heavy and do not feel uncomfortable like regular false eyelashes.

WHY AND HOW YOU CAN SWITCH TO CRUELTY FREE COSMETICS

(Photo of my late rabbit Salt and I for a blog post I did for Lush Cosmetics cruelty free kisses campaign in 2013.)

In this day and age you would think companies would have realised that testing cosmetics on animals is completely unnecessary and extremely cruel. I first became aware of animal testing when Lush brought their 'fighting animal testing' campaign out years and years ago, and ever since I vowed to never buy products from companies that tested on animals. I admit I have had the occasional slip ups as some companies claim with misleading disclaimers that they are cruelty free when they infact aren't, but for the most part I've only bought cruelty free products since then.

SOAP AND GLORY COLOUR CORRECTING CONCEALER STICKS

With out fail whenever I am in a boots store I check the Soap and Glory counter to see if they have any new products in. For a while they never did and I already had almost every product they sold! Recently they've been expanding their range and I couldn't be happier! Extreme colour correcting has been a trend for a while but I'm no way a pro when it comes to make up so I have never had the urge to try it. Soap and Glory is one of my favourite make up brands and when I saw they had brought these out I had to try them. They come in a stick type style and because of this I think it makes the whole correcting thing look easy.
