Tuesdays Treats

Hello Lovelies!

Its been a few days since I last blogged, because A)I've been struck down with yet another infection and B)...I got a new desktop PC and have been getting re-hooked on The Sims! Haha! I can't help myself...I get so addicted to that game and its been sooooo long since I was able to play it! :)

But I'm back and I intend to get lots of posts written and scheduled for the next week....I'm planning on including some more article-type posts on my blog as I enjoy writing them, but of course there will still be lots of make up and fashion type posts too! :)

But first things first, its Tuesday - which means its time to link up to Tuesdays Treat over at Frances blog Spot Of Tea!

This week, I am lusting after this:

Amplify Jumbo Waver by Enrapture - RRP £74.99, currently on sale for £49.99 at Amazon!

I read about these while reading a magazine interview with Made In Chelsea's Cheska Hull who swears by them for achieving her wavy look - I don't watch the show and I have never seen this girl before other than in the magazine, but her hair looked lovely!

I LOVE wavy hair, and I get so bored of my naturally poker straight hair - I would LOVE these and have started dropping hints as its only several weeks until my birthday! Fingers crossed for me guys! haha!

Oh and while I'm here, I wanted to let you know about a fab giveaway that the lovely Laura is having on her blog - you should definitely check it out! :)

  1. Hiya hun, its good to see you back! I hope you are feeling better now? Me and Gracie are finally over our horrible colds thank goodness.

    That waver looks fab hun. I know how boring it can be to have straight hair, mine never holds a curl for any length of time & I do get bored of wearing it straight sometimes. I saw a really good review of this & she said they are the equivalent in quality to ghd's! I hope you get them for your birthday, I've got my fingers & toes crossed for you lol x :-)

    1. Hiya! :) Aww thanks! I'm glad you and Gracie are feeling better! :)

      Mine is the same, will NOT hold a curl to save its life! Lasts about 30 minutes if I'm lucky then drops straight back to poker straight, no matter what curling tongs or hairspray I use :(

      I hope these would work on me! If I plait my hair wet and sleep on it, it does hold a wave for a couple of days but its not ideal to have to do it that way - these would be much better! :0P

      hehe, thanks hun - hope your crossed fingers and toes work! :)


  2. Here is that review hun x :-)

    1. Aw thanks hun! Sounds like they're really good! yay, I hope I get them!!!


  3. I've got a cheaper version of these that I got whilst I was at university years ago and they are AMAZING!! Better still, it will hold the waves for a couple of days which is great so you don't have to worry about them!


If you're feeling generous, please consider leaving me a comment as they brighten up my days and make me feel all warm inside!
