Too wax or not to wax!

hello y'all! I am in the last few weeks of my beauty therapy course (7 weeks exact) and its all very exciting. Though i have a very busy week ahead of me. I have a make up acessessment and a facial one too but after that no more! Yah!

I was reading an article in allure just this min about the Brazilian wax. I think the bikini wax isn't as much as a must have as it is in USA and other countries.( how else do us scots stay warm) not am not saying we don't look after our lady gardens but its quite an expensive up keep I feel in this country and home waxing can take alot of time. What do you think?

In America its the norm where we over the pond are abit slower in catching up. In the salon we always have ppl coming in for waxing but bikini seems to only be had by the people going on there holidays. Why is this? too expensive? too little time? cant be bothered?

Talking to others they all seem to say "take the lot off" as British are we too much of a prude to get it all out for a therapist (who has seen it all before and doesnt really care, I know)
I have had lots and lots of waxes and dont find the experience to embarrassing though the first was rather a strange experience it now feels like the norm!
Are you put of with all the options? What is the difference between a brazillian and a hollywood? or a bollywood and a shaped? It quite confusing!
This is slowly becoming more and more popular in the UK but its not just waxing that we are years behind. Our whole beauty industry is light years behind. Who is Britain has a weekly facial? Prices are too high, too many to choose from will we ever get there?

I lovea the fake bake!!

this is the body polish, tan lotion and skin smoothie

At college we did our fake bake training. I have always loved fake bake and have used it since I was 19. I have tried them all, st tropez, zen tan and more affordable high street brands. I always go back to Fake bake, I like the colour and its very manageable and you can easily build it up to a deeper colour.

The lady, karen who was training us was super fun and was a great laugh. She filled us in about the new fake bake formula which now has no parabens. Now i am not an expert about ingredients but I know paraben are a cause of cancer and I try to avoid products with these in them. You will be surprised how many of your fave products contain them. naughty naughty!

We used the fake bake original which works on all skin tones but fake bake also have fair and extreme. I have never used the fair but I have used the extreme which is for the extreme tanners which I am but I dont like to look that "fake" My sister uses this as she like the " I am almost black" look.

We applied the exfoliate to EVERY inch of our clients body(girls in our class) and removed it. If doing this at home I do this in the shower, less mess and easy to remove. The the lotion is applied all over the body. At the end of it I looked a big reddy muddy mess (the colour guide so you can see i you have missed a bit) and had to head back home on the bus. I got many a stare and felt very sticky. I normally do this before bed as the colour takes 6-8 hours to take and I dont notice the stickiness.

Fake bake is def my choice of tanning its safe and leaves you with a deep believable tan that last for up to 5 days.

I really want to try the airbrushing tan that fake bake have. It looks like an easy way to keeping your face nice and tanned.

What you fave tanning product??

Sorry I cant help myself!

I am so sorry! It has been so long! My computer has exploded and I am too tight to buy a new one so using my BFs when i get the chance!

I have been converting the new GAGA lippie from MAC but its completely sold out! I have been assured it will be back in very soon! I love the colour so bad. I was in Mac yesterday and tried it. AMAZING!!

So as i said I was in MAC and you know I cant go in that place and not bu something! I have had my eye on a few things at the moment and NONE where is stock gutted. Firstly I wanted the naked lip liner from the too fabulous range(You all know about my love of nude lips) but alas SOLD OUT! Tho my Mac artist, Kelvin recommended In sync which is the closest nude colour they have. It is a lovely nude reddy colour that goes well with all my nude lippies I have. I also got fashion snoop which is a cremesheen gloss from the too fab range.

Its not at pigmented as it looks in promo picture but is a glossy sheer nude pink with a very glassy look which is great! I also purchased a dazzleglass which I wouldnt normally have picked because i dont like glitterly glosses but was surprised by this one. I couldnt feel the glitter in the gloss, it wasnt gritty at all and it was (just as it says on the ti) dazzly! lol It made my lips look gorgeous and interesting! Great for a night out I say! It got this in Moth to flame and guess what! Its a nude!Its a natural beigh with a violet peal through it lovely. I wear the In sync lip liner under it to add a more pigmented colour and also so make it last longer!
