Hi guys and welcome this post is going to be all things beauty. I’m going to give you a little insight and some information on the things I got done before my travels. Obviously this all almost cost ths same price as my flights.. joys of being a girl 👸.
The number one thing I wanted done and is such a common thing. As eyebrows are what define your face and I don’t know about you but there literally all I stress and worry about to make sure there in perfect shape and I literally don’t pluck what so ever as I believe in growing them out as much as possible. Before getting this done I did a lot of research and was slightly freaked out as obviously I didn’t know what to expect.
The process is you get it done once> then wait 4-6 weeks and get your second touch up then this will last up to 2 years (amazing).
I would say the first procedure was very mild compared to the second. I had worked myself up so much for it and came out of the salon feeling “wow that wasn’t so bad after all”. However the aftercare is pretty irritating your brows feel so itchy after the 4th day and you literally just want to scratch them off (obviously you don’t do this) but I just had to put a thin layer of coconut oil on them and this did prevent the scratching and helped them heal.
The second touch up (4 weeks later) was a lot more painful as I knew what to expect I thought it would be the same level of pain but no. It was a little more painful but nothing unbearable. The Pain is hard to describe but to me it felt like the irritation of scratching the same area over and over again.
The aftercare for the second time around is the same as the first and the scabbing process roughly starts from the 4th day til 10th day. You’re not allowed to be using sunbeds, in direct sunlight, soaking them with water (in shower try to keep them out of water), no saunas/steam rooms, intensive sweating, no make up or creams within the eyebrow area. Now I did fully stick to this and I applied coconut oil twice a day (morning & night) and mine healed perfectly after getting them checked. However if you don’t which I don’t recommend you will loose pigmentation and it would be a total waste of money and your time.
The total cost for both procedures was £280. I think this price is reasonable and is totally worth it just think for 2 years your brows are going to be sitting perfect without a worry of drawing them on everyday.
I got mine done in La Bella Vita Salon, Dundonald by Agnes Wells.
Agnes is absoutely brilliant and I would 100% reccommend her as shes so professional and made me feel very relaxed during both sessions. She asked me what shape and colour I would prefer and she did them exactly how I wanted them. I had a few gaps throughout the front of my brows and in my before and after pic below you will see the difference just “wow”.
Agnes is self employed but works from the salon so your best to contact herself about any questions or pricing you have.
Before & After…
Now before anyone gets freaked I didn’t get botox to my head or anything extreme lol.
This procedure is a very mild shot of botox to relax the muscle of the mouth. This is always something that made me feel very self councious about taking selfies or close up pics and the before and after is just amazing!
Okay it’s called “Gummy Smile” and the procedure was a small shot of botox into each side of the mouth between the upper lip area. It took about 10 seconds which I was so shocked!! The pain was so mild I didn’t feel anything just afterwards it felt strange and I had a mild headache but nothing traumatic.
It costed £60 however I think this normally costs atleast £100 for 1 area of botox.
I got this done by “Fulfilled Aesthetics” on Anderstown Road. Deborah is absolutely amazing at her job and I 100% recommend her, I also got my lips done by Deborah and 8 months on I’m still fully satisfied with them also. Everyone reading check out her Instagram page!!

3) HAIR COLOUR
Going away to live in a hot country I obviously wanted to lighten my hair I think it’s just the essential even going on holidays in the sun.
I got a balyage in “La Bella Vita Salon, Dundonald”. Anyone wanting a real summer blonde I definitely recommend visiting the salon and getting Morgan to sort your locks. My hair costed £100 and this included fresh cut, toner and curly blow dry.

4) HAIR EXTENSIONS
Something I have wanted for a long time due to my hair taking so long to grow is extensions however I didn’t dive into this without doing my research and finding out which extensions are best for looking after especially with my hair going to constantly going to be within the heat.
I got 1/2 head fitted by the fabulous Laura in “XO Extensions by Correne”. I 100% this salon to anyone wanting extensions all the girls are so professional and give you exactly want you ask for.
All prices for different lengths and styles are on the salon’s Instagram/Facebook page. However my 1/2 head of nanorings costed £200 which was very reasonable for the experience compared to other salon’s I had consultations with.
