Damn Rebel Bitches: Reek Perfume

Its not often that a perfume campaign makes any sense at all, let alone resonates with actual, real women. Forget retouched snaps of glamazonian goddesses with action men on a billion dollar yacht, I’ve found a perfume that not only smells good but does good too. Damn Rebel Bitches by Reek perfumes is a bold, unmistakable scent that encourages Bitches to Unite. It looks to the past for inspiration, playing homage to the historic heroines of Scotland, yet is forward thinking in its marketing, with all-natural, rebellious badass women who aren’t afraid to make a statement.  (more…)

Arbonne Cruelty-Free Skincare

 
On Saturday 22nd October, I hosted a Fashion and Beauty event at The Scottish Design Exchange to promote our local fashion designers with special offers, mini makeovers by Cait Owens MUA, styling advice by Kimberley Grahame of Wardrobe Conversations and contemporary portraits by Deryck Henley. We also had Iona May, brand ambassador for cruelty-free beauty brand Arbonne, with lots of lovely product samples.

The Secret to Lasting Pink Hair

Having been a true blonde, a grey granny, a bleach blonde, a silver fox and a lilac violet, I have finally settled on pink hair. After years of admiring stunning bloggers like Honey Pop Kisses (hair goals!) and trawling through Tumblr and Pinterest for inspiration, I bit the bullet and got my hair dyed a dusty rose shade at cult Glasgow salon, Blow (read about my experience here!), but unfortunately this kind of ‘fashion colour’ never lasts more than a few weeks, and is generally quite high maintenance.

However, I am proud to claim I have discovered the answer to (semi) permanent pastel pink hair! Read on to find out the two miracle products you will need to stay pretty in pink for months after your salon treatment! The best part? You can do it all for under £10! Perfect for my new student budget!
