My Balayage Experience- Live True London Review

So I finally took the plunge and entered the wonderful world of hair dyeing. For those of you who know me, I've never dyed my hair before because I've had a bad experience with a box dye, which damaged my hair quite a lot. But having grown out my hair for 5 years, I've been wanting to try this awesome technique called "balayage", which means a natural sweep in French. 

I was lucky enough to be able to get my hair dyed at Live True London in Clapham, and I want to talk about what happened at the salon, my experience with the stylist and everything that happened afterwards. So I entered the beautiful salon and my stylist greeted me with a friendly smile, talked to me about what colour I wanted and got started. The salon features independent stylists who work under one shop, but every stylist is responsible for their own client. 

I chose to get a balayage ombre highlight, which is a technique used to create a natural ombre look. I love it because it's stylish, and I saw on Live True London's instagram that they do quite a lot of these. Take a look at my photos below!

The salon is beautiful and looks extremely well-lit, bright and friendly. Everyone working here was really nice and they offered me tea before doing the highlight. My balayage stylist talked me through the steps, which involved first dying the hair with a hand-painted technique called balayage, and then heating the foils using a machine. It took a while because the stylist was detailed, meticulous and took her time to paint the colour on my hair.

I also did an Olaplex treatment, which meant that my dye was mixed in with a hair protector to maintain the bonds in the proteins. I had to bleach the hair which could be damaging, but the treatment really did it's job well. My hair feels smooth and shiny right now, so I wasn't too nervous.

As you can see, the balayage highlights turned out stunningly well, and it looks amazing in the light. It is a light caramel shade which shines under the sun, and it's blended extremely well with my black hair. The hair feels smooth and soft because of the treatment, and the colour is so natural that I don't even notice any lines where the colors come in. It's really well done, and took around 3 hours to do. The results are totally worth it, and I really enjoyed my salon experience.

Overall, my hair used to be boring and plain, but now it's got this extra movement and shine that I have always wanted. Live True London did an excellent job on my hair for the balayage, and I cannot recommend them enough!

Femmeluxefinery 3

I love this shop called Femmeluxefinery a lovely shop that sells some of the most stylish and awesome clothing for women. I styled my beautiful Poppy top with a pair of trousers and sandals, and it's so lovely to be able to wear this out to meet my friends. 

The top itself is also flattering and lovely to wear - it's definitely a slimmer cut which gives it an extra level of sophistication. This staple piece can withstand the test of time, since it has a classic silhouette featuring a slim halter neck style in front. It looks like a top that Kate Middleton would wear, and I'm absolutely loving the design.

Springtime Haul- Shein Review

I love SHEIN- it's the best shop ever! I recently started wearing more sleeveless tops and shorts because it's warm and springtime. To get myself in the mood, I motivated myself by buying lots of tank tops from SHEIN, and I'll show you them below! Its spring and I just want to say how much I'm looking forward to the summer. This time I want to introduce you to my new wardrobe favourite of this week- the Satin Wrap Dress from Shein, a huge boutique that I'm sure many of you will have seen before. As you know, some online shops aren't reliable as they don't have good quality items. 

A bit about the brand- the brand I'm featuring is Shein, a famous clothing brand that is totally the hottest thing right now. They're affordable and releases new clothing styles every day. However, what many people don't know is that they have an awesome range of mens styles too. 

I got these new clothing, long sleeves, leggings and t-shirts and took photos to show you. I've also included the links for you below so you can check them out. They look totally identical to the photos on their site, and I'd highly recommend Shein for their beautiful designs, gorgeous quality and affordable pricing.

I love these tank tops from Shein as they came in perfect condition, and is surprisingly high quality for the price I paid. I got 2 pairs of leggings which were suitable for sports. Although the material was a bit thin it was extremely comfortable and soft, and was so flattering!  The material is smooth and silky, and the dress is definitely not transparent as you can see.










Items, from top to bottom:

The tank tops that I got are also lovely, as some of them look so flattering on my body. For example this white one looks beautiful and has a lace detail. Also it has adjustable straps at the back, giving it a lovely, low-back look. It's also ribbed, so I'm more into this trend as it's quite flattering!

I also got some underwear because I wanted some new panties, and they're amazing in quality.

No more Painful Feet- Fitflop Review and Giveaway

Hey everyone! I've always suffered from sensitive feet- my feet are prone to bunions and are extremely wide. Sadly, I can't wear heels anymore! However, I want to review some comfortable and stylish shoes from Fitflop that has changed my life. The brand's shoes are versatile and cute, and best of all they suit people with sensitive, painful feet really well.

A bit about the brand- being one of the most well-known brands worldwide, Fitflop is driven by the goal of designing comfortable yet stylish shoes for people with wide or problematic feet. The brand focuses on making high quality footwear for women and men, and they don't create heels because they believe that shoes should be comfortable and healthy for your feet. Fitflop delivers quality shoes through their impeccable designs, lovely styles and high-quality service. 

I want to talk about two pairs of shoes that I got in time for spring. It's really hot in the UK and it's getting sunnier, warmer and happier. I want to tell you all about the shoes that I got from Fitflop's new spring collection, as well as offer an exciting GIVEAWAY for you all!

I got two pairs of lovely shoes, both ballerinas from Fitflop. For those of you who thought that this brand only creates shoes that look wide, think again. The new range from Fitflop features some awesome shoes that look awesome, slimming and has super supportive soles. That's right, these flats are no ordinary flats because they feature special technology that makes the soles thicker, bouncier and healthier for our feet.

The first pair of shoes that I got were these Twiss ballet flats in a gorgeous nude beige colour. Fitflop has done it again and given their sleek ballerinas a twist - literally. Designed with chic intertwined leather straps at the toe, these shoes are so versatile that I can wear them as party shoes or for a touch of daytime sparkle. The soles feature a Dynamicush™ tech for 'bouncy' cushioning and all-day comfort. They're one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes that I've ever worn, and I can walk a mile in them. They're definitely worth the money.

The quality is also awesome. Fitflop always makes shoes that are light and soft, and these shoes are so lightweight that at first I didn't think they'd last long. However, after using them for a week or more, I've realised that they stand up to all types of weather and pressure, and don't wear out as much as my other flats. 

GIVEAWAY ALERT!

I'm giving away 1 free pair of Fitflop shoes for a lucky winner! All you have to do is fill in the Rafflecopter form below, and the winner will be announced on the 18 April 2019. Note that you will need Instagram for this giveaway (please create an account and follow me @florythefish)!

Little Pretty Dress- JJ's House Review

Hi girls! Today I want to do a short review of a grey lace prom dress that I got from my favourite bridesmaid and prom dress shop JJs House  For those of you who has read my blog, I've been reviewing Jjs House stuff since a few years ago after buying a few dresses from them. This time, I tried a customized prom dress with embellishments, customized to my size.

JJShouse also has the option of fully customizing your dress, so you can measure yourself and enter the details on their page. It also allows you to customise the colour and design of the dress, so if you're shorter or taller, there will not be a problem! How cool is that? 

I just adore their site because they have hundreds of designs and styles to choose from. The prices of their dresses are also very cheap and affordable for poor students like me. I always want new dresses, and JJs House gives me plenty of great choices.

So onto my review- this beautiful A-line princess dress has a lovely halter neck design. I have never owned a halter design in my life, and this gorgeous one was chosen because it had a lace body which was something I love. I also loved the embellishment on the top and it would make a cute casual dress. I have to say, this JJsHouse dress is one of the most beautiful cocktail dress  I've ever owned. It's really delicate and well-made, and the fit is perfect on my body. I love how it is fully lined with built-in bras so I don't have to wear underwear that might stick out unnaturally. The cocktail dress is also super good quality and well-made, so there's no skimping involved unlike other factory outlets out there.

Also the design is totally like the photo on the JJsHouse website! I'm so in love with this, and got lots of compliments when I wore it to a party last weekend. My friends said that they couldn't believe it was only around $100 GBP. What a bargain! 

I entered my custom measurements and everything was perfectly fitting although the chest was slightly large. It wasn't too big or too small, though I was quite nervous at first. The skirt was a bit long though, which is alright as I'm quite tall. I love the skirt as it's made from a lovely satin material. The top is made from lace and embroidery and looks so elegant! 

Overall, I'm super happy with my purchase from Jjs House- it looks so amazing and lovely, and it is sure to get me lots of compliments. Get yours too!

Spotlight on Masks- Daytox Mask Review

Hey lovelies! I want to talk quickly about my experience using Daytox's masks. This skincare brand is amazing and unique, and rather undiscovered I have to say. This brand

The first thing I used was this Clay Mask from Daytox. I love this mask as it's cleansing and refreshing, and it helps moisturizes, heals inflammation and regulates excess sebum. It really helps me prevent blackheads. The best thing about this mask is that the active detox ingredient, ‘BioDtox' which cleanses deeply and evens the skin. I adore this mask and it helped with my acne.

day tox review, butter london review, day tox aqua moisture vitamin c, butter london nail varnish

The second mask was called the Peel-Off Mask. This mask uses black activated carbon, which means that it thoroughly cleanses your face. Carbon helps remove all the impurities from your skin, which helps remove acne and clear the oils from your face.

After leaving it on for 10 minutes, I removed the mask form my face. It was very easy to remove, and did not leave my hands sticky like other masks do when you wash it off. I'm very pleased with how my skin felt and looked afterwards- my skin literally glowed and was as smooth as a baby's skin! It felt really soft too, so that's a plus. The mask gave my face an extra smooth look for the rest of the night, and I'm really pleased with how clean and supple I felt afterwards. It seemed to control the oil from my face too.

My Favourite Fluffy Towels- Casual Avenue Review

It's nearly Mother's Day and I want to talk about some of the best gifts you can get your mum or aunt- or pretty much anyone in your family that loves classy and useful kitchen accessories. I want to talk about some of Casual Avenue's awesome towels and tell you what I think of them.

A bit about the brand- Casual Avenue is a kitchen and home accessories store which sells a variety of home accessories and towels. They have a lovely range of luxurious bath towels which features gorgeous fluffy towels in a range of colors, as well as home clothing more. The brand is quite comprehensive in their range, and you'd be amazed at the selection of possible gifts that they offer.

I got this lovely Valencia Towel for my mum this season- this towel is absolutely gorgeous as it features a simple fluffy texture. My mum loves showering and bathing, so she's always telling me how she needs more towels for the toilet. Casual Avenue designs impeccable-looking products, and this towel is no exception. It is really luxurious, thick and lights up my toilet, and my mum absolutely loves it! I would recommend it to anyone who wants something cozy, thick and lovely.

I also got this smaller Alston Towel for my mum.  As a person who loves washing her hair, my mum owns a fair share of old towels which are broken and worn out. However, this towel is special since it is especially thick and of good quality, being made from pure modal and cotton. Cotton is great as it's easy to care for and wash, so all you have to do is throw this in the wash when it gets dirty. I think this towel would make a great gift for anyone in the kitchen, as it's cute, fun and totally chic.

Overall, if you're looking for some cool gift ideas for your mum or aunt, do check out Casual Avenue for some great ideas!
