What I have in my summers sports day bag?

Hello Ravingbeauties x
Today i had sports day and i thought that most schools will be having their sports days to so i decided to share what i have in my sports day bag with all of you. Just because i have called it my sports day bag it does not mean that, that is all it can be. It can be for any sports or activities days you want.

In my sports day bag i have:
-my makeup bag to touch up throughout the day,
-a mirror so you can see what your doing when touching up you makeup or adjusting your hair,
-sunglasses to protect your eyes against the sun,
-a hair brush to brush out any tangles in your hair,
-the TED BAKER London body spray,
-comb to do my hair,
-deodorant so i can keep smelling fresh,
-the Midnight Fantasy perfume to keep me smelling sweet,
-a energy drink just in case you need any energy boost before a race,
-sun cream to protect yourself against the sun,
-my purse so i can buy food,
-grips to secure any loose hair,
-my favorite lollipops to eat,
-bobbles just incase you forget to put your hair up,
-a lip balm/butter so i can keep my lips soft and moisturized,
-earphones to listen to music,
-my blackberry that was to keep in contact with my friends and family and to put reminders for my events, to listen to music, to keep up to date on the social sites,
-your lunch which i have already ate,
-keys which i haven't taken pictures of for obvious reasons,
-my event timetable which i didnt take a picture of because it has my school on the front,
-a dark blue hoodie so that if its cold i can wear this,
-my 2 litre bottle of water,

I also in that picture should of included a huge 2 litre bottle of still water and a dark blue hoodie but i forgot about them and had already taken, edited and put the pictures in my post before i realized so i have taken pictures of them and they are going to be added below but they will be alone.

So thats whats in my sports day bag, what would you put in yours or would you take out or add anything to mine because i have another sports day coming up soon, so any tips would be helpful.

I Had My Eye Brows Threaded

(the day i had them done)
(about 6 weeks later)
(the overall look the day i had them done)
Hello Ravingbeauties x
About two month ago i had my eyebrows threaded and i thought i would do a post on it. In this post i would  like to share my experience of the treatment, after care and the overall look, so here it is.

It was only £5 to get my eyebrows threaded and i never really bothered with my eyebrows before so i decided to get it done. I sat down in the chair and she just started, she didn't ask me what shape i wanted or anything but even if she had i wouldn't of known what to go for anyway. So she got her thread out and started the threading process. I'm not going to lie to you it does hurt. I would best describe the pain as like when you are plucking your eyebrows and you get that one stubborn hair that you really have to pull for it to come out and it hurts in the process, well its like lots of them all at the same time. It did feel like it went on for ages and your just led there waiting for it to be over, but in actual fact it only took here between 5-10 minutes and after i sat up my friend was laughing at me. She said that when i was having the treatment done i kept clenching my purse tighter and she found it highly amusing.

After trimming my eyebrows at the start of them where they sometimes can get a bit bushy and then she got a brush and dusted the hairs of my face. After that she applied a type of gel but i'm not sure what it was but it was so soothing and nice of my sore eyebrows, it was literally the most amazing feeling ever. I then sat up and she handed me the mirror and i instantly fell in love with the shape and the look and everything about them. WARNING The only problem was, i had a massive red stripe across my face where my eyebrows were and it was the most embarrassing thing going round with a red stripe across my head because i had never had it done before i hadn't brought any makeup with me but in future i will but then again thinking back it might have irritated my face even more so i probably wouldn't recommend it but just expect it.

The good thing about the place i went is that they give you at card i think if you get them to mark it in your book every time you go on the 7th time you go the next treatment is free which is good but i have just been maintaining them myself. I wanted to get them done so i could have a shape to follow and i think they did it well. I have not been back for another treatment because i don't really think i need one. Every time i see a new stray hair i pluck it and thats it they are back to the way they looked when the lady did them so i don't really think there is any point to getting them done if you keep on top of them. The only other thing i do to my eyebrows is i fill them in using the Rimmel Professional Eye Brow Pencil in 002 hazel which retails for £3; MUA mascara in clear shade 1.

I feel like the lady did a really good job at threading my eyebrows and i would go to her again. I like the shape and the thickness because i think it goes well with my face shape. So anyone whos thinking of having them dooooo it, it is one of my best decisions yet.

Exposé streak free self tanning mousse

Hello Ravingbeauties x
This product is available from Bodycare at 99p and Homebargins at 89p which in my opinion is a real steal.
Exposé streak free self tanning mousse claims to be for you face, legs and body but i personally have not and will not be trying it on my face because i never put any false tan on my face because i do not want to upset my skin.

It is formulated with aloe vera which is meant to keep your skin moisturized. I am not sure whether it actually  does this because my skin looked and felt the same before and after i put it on so it could be that the fake tan drys your skin out and then the aloe vera moisturizes it so it looks the same or it could of not dried my skin out at all (i'm not sure) but my skin looked the same as before.

Also it claims to:
- Develop an even and natural looking tan in hours.
- No streaks formula.
- Works with or without the sun.
I feel like it does develop a even and natural looking tan in hours but it does take hours to develop so you cannot see it instantly when you first apply it. This means it would not be a good product for a last minute night out because you would have to apply it the night before for it to have fully developed.

I have found that it has left me with no streaks but i think thats because i apply it with a tanning mitt which i feel can give you a streak free finish with every tan.

For the best result, i exfoliate with my exfoliating gloves then when i have come out of the bath or shower and  my pores have closed up. Using my tanning mitt i apply the tan all over my body but not my face or stomach because i have recently had my belly button pierced and it was recommended not to apply false tan to that area until it has properly healed.The next morning i moisturize all over my body. Later that night i apply another coat of the fake tan. I repeat this process everyday for the best and darkest look.

The bottle contains 140ml of product and it has lasted me about a month which i would say is about average.

Exposé streak free self tanning mousse give me a deep golden glowy tan to my skin. A really nice healthy glow. You do not look dirty and have to shower it off for it to look natural after the application but i feel like you need to give it 24-48hours to fully develop and then have a shower to get rid of the small smell you have. The only downfall in my eyes is that their is no guide colour, the mousse is white and drys clear and also the small smell but with fake tan i think you have to expect it really because i have never found a false tan that smells nice and stays smelling nice after being applied.

I will definitely be repurchasing this product and it will have a permanent place in my collection of fake tan but i will probably still try out other fake tans.

Today's Talk #1

So today we have had some lovely weather in England it has been even hotter than abroad (woweeee). So today I have been inspired to create a new post because literally i felt so inspired by the gorgeous weather we have in England today.

I am literally just sat here in shorts and a strappy top (really in England). Anyway I just got back from school and when I looked in the car at the little temperature thing it said a wopping 30 degrees. I actually cannot believe it. On the radio this morning as i was getting ready for school it said its going to be hotter than abroad and I am going to be honest with you, I thought no way. But I am so happy to admit it and say they were not wrong, it is.

So I am going to go and continue on with the rest of today which involves writing another couple of posts for my blog and then after continue sunbathing and then go and meet my mates.

So I hope if you are in England that you have a lovely day to in the sun,
leave a comment below telling me about you day.

for anyone whose wondering this post was actually wrote on Friday afternoon on the 25th, sorry i did not get it out on the day but i had another post to upload that i needed to put up first
