Magical Mermaid 3D ring

I’m in love with this beautiful resin ring. Looking at it makes me feel so happy and amazed, as it’s a work of art and something that would look lovely on my fingers. The artist makes this by gand and I love how it features a mini figurine trapped inside a sea; basically like a snowglobe you can wear. How cool is this?

According to the description, the mermaid’s name is Lorella, and she spends her day combing her hair and looking in the mirror.

Curlipops hairdryer is cute, could be a curl saviour

Browsing Amazon can be entertainment in itself and when I stumbled across Curlipops I thought I’d found something ridiculous and novelty-like, a throwback to the eighties where crimping was big and everyone wanted a Molly Ringwald bouffant. But it seems I was mistaken, going by the rave reviews anyhow, some as recent as 2014, espousing the wonderful curling qualities of this funky looking dryer.

“Never thought the blow dryer made a big difference….always thought it was the styling products…guess again,this will be the only blow dryer i will ever use or buy again…. awesome for curly hair.” – Autumn

“Curly girls, you’re hair will love this. Gives my curls volume without frizz. My hair dries quicker this this dryer, but it is not super hot. The shape of it allows you to shape your air while you dry it. If you have curly hair, get this now! I do wish it had some sort of attachment that was similar to a concentrator so I could blow dry parts of my hair out. “- Kate

Review: Bunny Tree of Life Necklace from Jewel Street

I’m a big fan of jewelry, as it’s a great way to dress up a dull outfit, and is just generally a sparkly addition to any style. I was excited when I was approached by Jewel Street to try something from their store, as they seemed to offer a really cool selection of items. When I investigated more, I found that they are actually a boutique that stocks 300+ designers, most of whom seem independent. They have many lovely items, and you can narrow your search field by style, color and price-point. Its’s kinda like a high end Etsy, unique items carefully curated, with a quality promise.

After some insane amount of deliberation  ( I like so many things here!) I decided to try a pendant from a brand called Martick Jewellery, called the “Bunny and the Tree of Life Pendant.” I liked the delicate silver filigree style, and the gold bunny accent was adorable.

Animal Cling Rings from the Fowndry

You know I’m a sucker for rings, and add a little quirk to them and you get an essay glamorizing polar bear fingers and growling cheetah faces. What can I say – these are so striking, that you have to enjoy them. Again and again and again. These rings are called “CLing rings” and are apparently spelled like that AND a thing in Japan. Well, you know Japan, right?

The animal kingdom is represented  with everything from chipmunk to tiger and pig. Yes, a porky pie, Miss Piggy-less porcine can be on your hands. The red squirrel also gets adorable points, well most of this really does. I could see wearing just one for shock value, or layering them for an all round zoo-licious time on your fingers.

Around 20 dollars from The Fowndry

Jewish Nail Decals For Oy Vey Yay

I had to share these jewish nail decals from “midrash manicures” as they made me smile. Spotted at NY Now, a big home design show in New York, these nails take a religious twist on the traditional decals. Here you can opt for the ten plagues — on ten fingers, right?? — or go all patriotic (depending on your heritage) with the Israeli nails. And yes, obviously it has a Star of David. Can’t confirm if there is a picture of chicken soup or latkes though.

What do you think – would you wear these?

Estee Lauder Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Cream for Dry Skin

Winter has not been kind to my skin. Not so much the horrible rain and wind that bite away at my face and leave my nose resembling Rudolph, but more that terrible dryness, that makes me wake thinking my throat has closed up, with my nails all raggedy and my skin parched.
The Hydrationist describes itself as “maximum moisture cream” and when Chemist Direct sent me one, I leapt upon it like a woman finding an oasis. Though I hoped this would not be a deception and I’d actually regain feeling in my extremities again.

The packaging is lovely – hey, it’ Lauder, and the cream itself has a white, thick consistency and smoothes on like a cold cream. It’s quite heavy, which I liked, as it felt very nourishing to my parched skin and though it took a little while to absorb, applied between teeth-brushing and dressing gave it enough time to sink in. At night I like to wear it slightly thicker so it can soothe me while I sleep.

Nail Armor Review For Dragon Claw Fingers!

It started with the idea that I might go all out for a recent video games convention, and then – dispirited after looking at the effort that people put into their outfits – and omg, the cost of real anime wigs—I thought maybe a low key look was in order. These dragon claws are awesome. I’d seen pictures online and though up-close they might be tacky, but actually they were so much more.

Available in a few color ways, I’d opted for silver – classic, and might be good if I ever go Danerys on something. They came in a cute silver box, nestled in soft cotton and are the most beautiful things ever.

Product Review: Joico Color Endure Treatment Masque

I know, I know, I should be kinder to my hair, but I just can’t stay away from that bleach bottle. My hairdresser tries her best, but in between salon visits, straw is a fair comparison for my hairs texture. On a bid to get rid of that oh so prevalent crispy feeling I’ve been trialing hair treatments. This Joico Color Endure Treatment Masque was provided to me my Chemist Direct and I’m here to document my experience.

First off, it’s a thick white conditioning cream that smooth’s nicely onto the hair, making it feel weighted and heavy, like slugs of silk down my back in the shower. It washes off easily and my hair has that nice conditioned feel to it, but the big test – what would it feel like when dry.


Sure, the bottle has words like replenishing and “multi spectrum defense complex” (what? Yeah, exactly) but I cared about my blonde staying bright and y hair feeling soft.

I’d say it achieved that. My hair was bouncy but not fried and I like d that my blonde didn’t get muted with washing. It’s not the softest thing ever, but considering how I abuse it, I’m pretty happy. So long Herbal Essences.. I think this is a new staple.

It doesn’t seem to be listed anymore on Chemist Direct, but keep checking back and hopefully they’ll relist it.

Pop Out Jewellery is practical and pretty

Jewelery is wonderful. Pretty, shiny objects that you can use to adorn yourself, statements of your personality, your expression and the hopes of what you’d like to achieve. Or, if that’s too high-faluting for you, pretty baubles that draw attention. But jewelry doesn’t travel super well, it gets knotted and frustrating and can lead to hours with vaseline and a needle (this works, but soooo time consuming).

I recently came across Pop Out Jewelry and was blown away by its style and its sass; what a cool way to transport jewelry, and also make people feel involved in their items, as they have to physically pop them open! You purchase a slim piece of metal, press out your item and then transform in into a wearable using the clasps or ear hooks provided.
