Sally Hansen maximum growth | review

So a while back now I decided to take the plunge and go back to college! The search for an ideal career wasn't getting anywhere and I thought I should just return to education and start getting qualified in a field that I love in beauty therapy!

So for an college interview there was a condition that you weren't allowed to wear nail enamel or extensions which I don't really know why I didn't guess before and I freaked!! I had nail tips on and knew that underneath was going to be a train wreck and yes yes it was 

Thankfully I got the email two weeks before interview so I had time to improve 

I have always had quite brittle and thin nails but as soon as I take extensions off like everyone my nails and just non existent which can be very irritating , I've also never really spent more than 3 days without nail enamel as I just can't stand the sight of bare nails but I had to push though and just get over my fear of it!

So I rushed to the shops to find some products which would assist with nail growth and just strengthening the nails and I came across Sally Hansens maximum growth for £4.89 

I thought it was a great price and has read really positive review about it and with promises of stronger nails in a week I knew this was the one I had to try out 

So two weeks down the line I can tell you this product is a definite go to with trouble nails , I got into a routine of filing and re applying every two days 

I think the strength was more noticeable than the growth which really wasn't a problem cause it was so strengthening I didn't see any breakage in the nail which I get very very often and why I usually cover up with fake nails , I would recommend this to anyone have trouble with short brittle nails!!

Thanks for reading :) :)

Summer dress bargains | thegreatcatsbyx

So I was browsing my wardrobe the other day fr a nice outfit since the sun was shining and I wasn't feeling any dark colours at all

And all I noticed was a very dull outdated wardrobe , definitely called for a trip to town I had a scan around River Island and New look and saw some nice pieces but at this time 'im trying to save money so I thought I bet head to my trusty Primark not expecting to find much.

Until I came across these two beauties!

Both very floaty bright summer dresses and only £5 each! They have a nice fit to them more so the white than orange.

The white has ties around the back to pull the waist in which I was impressed by , it definitely hid my bumpy bits with but with only on issue , it is extremely see through I would invest in some white undergarments. The thing I like the most about this dress is it's so easy to layer with accessories and if I gets chilly on summer nights it's easy to shove on any cardigan without worrying of clashing colours. This one is my favorite!

Now the orange one , the first thing was definitely the pattern that attracted me to this , the gorgeous floral print and the bright and vibrant colour , now this dress does not do your figure justice at all I feel though if I got the bigger size this would have been a bit less obvoius and clingy 

Let me know if you'd like to see an outfit of the day with one of these dresses :)

thanks for reading
