The Vintage Beauty Box

Hello and welcome to nicspicknmix. On the blog today I will be writing about this little gem which has had a makeover and a new addition to the team. The vintage beauty box based in ST Andrews has been growing from strength to strength that the need for expansion was a must.

The Vintage Beauty Box is owned by Aileen ho has vast amounts of knowledge both as a professional make up artist and as a skin specialist. They specialise in customer satisfaction and will do everything to make you feel comfortable. The treatments that are available are tremendous they offer a wide selection from waxing to wedding make up. With the relaunch comes even more variety. They now offer vita liberate spray tan. I had never heard of this brand before but was intrigued to find out more. I don’t often spray tan due to being very pale and I’m not a fan of the tango look. Aileen recommended this brand to myself as it is designed to avoid the orange tint and that nasty I’ve just been tanned smell. So I’ll definitely be trying this tan out and share my before and after results with you. If this is right up your street Aileen currently has a great offer on, Tan Thursday any appointment made between 2pm-8pm will be discounted to £15 instead of £25! Just in time for the weekend prep. If tan isn’t your thing then why not opt for some nail treatments from their shiny new nail bar. They also offer make up applications and lessons at their glamorous make up stations. The Vintage Beauty Box loves students, in fact they have two days dedicated to them on a Mondays and Tuesdays where a discount of 10% is available.

I was invited along to attend the relaunch of the beauty salon which was very exciting. The salon is situated in the heart of St Andrews which is a fantastic location. Parking is a little difficult but there is on street and other places nearby to park which means the salon is in walking distance. On arrival at the salon I was very impressed with the new layout. I was so excited to see all the new add ons and what the new beauty room would be like. They have still kept the very essence of the calming, clean and natural colourings as before which I am a fan of . The atmosphere is still very relaxing – in fact I felt relaxed just being there which was a lovely feeling. They now have two beauty rooms and a tan room which means more availability. I have attached images of the beauty rooms and tan room for you to get a feel of the set up. I will also include links to the websites and social media accounts so you can all check out the treatments .

I am really excited to see what else is in store for this beauty salon and look forward to booking myself in for treatments. Please do check them out.

Period charity project (Period Friendly Project)

Hello and welcome to nicspicknmix. Today I am introducing you all to something completely different to what I normally blog about.

I put myself forward to spread the word about an amazing charity project, which helps homeless women to overcome certain obstacles in their lives. The Simon Community Scotland charity helps over 500 women. They aim to help women to gain control of their lives and to be given emergency accommodation to keep them safe and off the street through their street team. The Simon Community Scotland along with the street team are now launching a Period Friendly programme to help these women to maintain their dignity, to show that there are people who care and services to both support and listen to them. We need to stand together and make a change as no woman or girl should ever have to be in the position to have to make a D.I.Y tampon or towel, wear the same pair of pants for days on end. No woman or girl should ever have to change behind a bin either! He Simon Community Scotland makes a good point that “the smallest bit of generosity can go a long, long way” and I couldn’t agree more’!

In order for this to happen and to give these women the help that they need, Simon Community Scotland are launching a brand new project on the 23rd August 2017 in Glasgow which has been called: Period Friendly Point (PFP). This is hoped to help homeless women to have ‘a period of dignity’.

So how exactly will this project work?
The Period Friendly Points are locations which are catered for the homeless. The project once it has grown overtime more organisations will hopefully be keen to help out. The PFP’s will have a display which will have free and easily accessible sanitary products, wipes, pants and disposable bags and information leaflets about the products. There will also be pregnancy tests and infection tests there to give women the peace of mind should these be required. Not only will there be products handed out but members of staff will be there to chat to should there be anything the women need to talk about.

Not only are they doing all of the above but the street team are to be handing out Period Friendly Pax which are discrete and compact bags for women who are sleeping rough. The bags include tampons, towels, pants, wipes and disposable bags. The perfect thing about these bags is they can be refilled by the street team or at the nearest PFP. There will also be information given in the bag about what this project is about and where they can go for help etc.

This project is a fantastic idea and one I am happy to be blogging about. Every woman experiences periods and we all know how expensive these products are to buy. Periods shouldn’t be seen as a topic that we don’t speak about instead we should be supporting one another through it like the Simon Community Scotland are setting out to do. Women should be empowering one another and by doing a small it it will make a huge difference to a woman or girl somewhere.

How can you help ?
It will cost the Simon Community around £15 for a five day supply which includes: 5 towels, 12 tampons, 3 pairs of pants, travel wipes, disposable bags and information. If you would like to donate please textPFPR28 to 70070 with the amount you would like to donate: £5 or £10.

There is another way that you can help, if you have have a couple of hours to spare a month or a week we’d welcome your help. What we need our P.F.Pals to do is:

Visit the period friendly points and restock their supplies

Collect and sort donations into Pax and refresher packs at our warehouse in Glasgow

Help raise funds and products to maintain the period friendly points and pax.

Support, promote and raise awareness of the issues homeless women experience.

Be a listening ear and a support to the women we reach out to.

I think you will agree that this is a fantastic project and one that is long overdue. I hope we can all do our bit to help and support to keep this project alive to help,our fellow sisters.

For more information please visit the web links below:

I would like to send a huge thank you to Kirstin and all the team at the Simon Community Scotland for all their hard work. I am honoured to be blogging about this project and I hope to help out more.

Thank you for reading and I hope you are able to help out in some way.

Much love

liebster Award 2

Hello and welcome to nicspicknmix.
I am delighted to share with you all my second blog award. I have been nominated with the Liebster award (2). It's over whelming to have been nominated again. As the saying goes 'hard work pays off'. And this is a saying that sticks with me.

I was nominated by Mika Yoshimura from the blog A shade of mikachuu. Where she specialises in fashion blogging. I really enjoyed reading her posts and feel she grasps what we want to see from a blogger. I would like to thank her for taking the time to read my blog and for nominating my blog , it's such a boost when you see that your work is being enjoyed. I hope her blog grows in strength too.

I am required to give two pieces of advice to new bloggers. So I will give my opinion on what I felt would have helped myself looking back.

1) Find the time to blog regularly. This is something that I struggle with and an area I'm working on still. This is very important as you want to be as active as you can be to gain exposure. Once you get your theme and topics you'll be raring to go. You need to spend a lot of time researching what's important to include and having content that's relatable your followers. Making time will become much easier once you establish a routine around your other day to day priorities.
2) pick one social media platform which you are comfortable using and stick with it. Link it to your blog so your followers can read your posts . By using only one social media platform you gain knowledge of what works best for you. The best times to post on that platform so you gain more exposure too. The more active you are on that social platform the more interaction you will gain . Your audience will know where to find you online.

All in all, blogging is great, can be fun and really rewarding. Stick at it!

Rosamund of Scotland

Hello and welcome to nicspicnmix, on the blog today I am introducing Rosamund of Scotland to you all.

Rosamund of Scotland is a new Scottish design brand for women using sustainability sourced textiles. Rosamund's designs are quirky, original, beautifully crafted and luxurious. Rosamund of Scotland is a family run fashion brand. In fact it is a mother and daughter team behind the brand- Girl power indeed! The whole process is carried out in their workshop. From sketching to creating the finished piece. The materials used are of top quality.

This brand is so unique and very different to any I have worked with before and I love how creative the pieces are. They certainly do stand out. It is a brand where you can tell who made it straight away- which is fantastic. I really enjoy fun and unusual designs. It fits in really well with my motto of experimenting and pushing boundaries with fashion. There really is not another brand like Rosamund of Scotland which is exciting. I am waiting eagerly to see what they design next.

I am so fortunate to have a bespoke dress designed for myself from the Love letter collection. With the dress being made to measure it makes it more special as it's designed to fit you only. The dress compliments my shape very well. It has an elegant style to it. The cream material compliments my skin tone which surprised me as this is not a colour I usually wear. The dress is so comfortable to wear and it makes me feel like a 1950's pin up girl.


Dress costs £130.00

Dress also comes with matching clutch. Price £48.00

The company have been getting a lot of attention from the media which is great and very exciting for a local company. The team behind the brand are so passionate and hard working that I am so pleased that they are getting the recognition that they truly deserve . No one realises how much time and effort that goes into creating and maintaining a business until you start one yourself. I enjoy reading about what they are up to next and what fashion show they are taking part in – maybe one day I could walk in their designs!

I honestly can't recommend this brand enough- I could rave about them all day and still have only touched the surface. Please check them out . They are so different and I can guarantee you'll fall in love with them and their designs. The company are one to look out for.

Thank you to Rosamund of Scotland for giving me this opportunity. I am forever grateful and I hope to work with you again.

Please check out their websites below:

If you do purchase a design please let me see you wearing them as I'd love to see your outfits.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and I hope you enjoyed learning about Rosamund of Scotland.

Much love

Blogger Recognition Award

Hello and welcome to nicspicknmix. I am so excited to share with you all that I was nominated for the blogger recognition award. This is my first award and I am so pleased to have been nominated . It actually means so much to me and shows that my blog is being enjoyed and read by people. It has encouraged me me to keep blogging and to push even harder.

How did I get the award?
I was nominated by Sophie Buchan of the blog trafottoz . She specialises in reviewing films, TV and restaurants in Glasgow (her hometown) and sometimes whilst abroad. I would like to thank Sophie for taking the time to read my blog and for believing that my blog was worth the award. I am over the moon.

How did I get into blogging?
I started of working in the fashion industry as a model and an actress. I have always had an interest in fashion and would experiment styling my own outfits and found that I really had an eye for it. I enjoyed seeing and wearing the different outfits on shoots and felt that I could express myself creatively through both fashion and make up. I have always been a creative person and felt by blogging this would allow me to keep being creative and hopefully inspire others through my work. Being petite has always brought barriers my way, be it getting trousers/ dresses etc to fit properly or being too small for certain modelling agencies. I wanted to stay working in the fashion industry and through blogging I feel I am able to achieve my dreams.

What advice would I give to bloggers?
Please don’t go into blogging if your only wanting to be famous or receive “freebies”. There are lots and lots of bloggers out there and some have been working hard for years and only now have they got to where they have aimed for through hard work and dedication. Blogging requires time,patience,a creative eye and determination amongst many more requirements.
You need to stand out from the crowd. Never copy other bloggers as that’s not going to help you anyway shape or form. Do lots of research on what’s current. I’m. It saying that being old school/vintage isn’t great but keeping up to date in your blogging area is crucial.
Don’t ever give up!

I am now required to nominate ten other bloggers who I feel deserve this award. It’s always really hard to choose by chosen bloggers are as follows:
1) Carly Philips : hicarlymarie
2) No serendipity: stylishmaze
3) Chr Marcel:kostantin
4) Cassidy Slockett : cassidysadventures
5) Wasifa Ahmad Hasan : sifascorner.
6) Curtis Roscoe : curtisluke
7) Media Verna Bector: hoppingfeet
8) Ellis Ellis : blackellis
9) Chanette Bing: chanettebing
10) Stephanie Omogun: melaninwonder

Here is What You Need to do now:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
2. Write a post to show your award.
3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
5. Select other bloggers you want to give this award to.
6. Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated and provide the link to the post you created.

Thank you for reading. I hope you are looking forward to seeing and reading what I have coming soon. Lots of exciting things coming.

Much love

SixPlus cosmetics make up brushes

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I am writing about Sixplus cosmetics make up brushes. This company provide make up lovers with good quality products at affordable prices.

20160815_000016

Sixplus 12 PCS Shining Handle Soft Horse Hair Eye Blue Makeup Brush Set: £35.99 Amazon

These brushes come in various sets and single options. Which is great if you are looking to try new brush options. They are not expensive yet the quality is of a high standard.  I like how there is a good selection to choose from. You can choose from various colours which I really do think works well. They are very professional looking and can easily be stored in the multipurpose make up bag which has individual spaces for each brush – perfect for storing.  The makeup bag is very sturdy yet is compact which is great for travelling. There are also instruction booklets in the makeup bag.

 

The brush sets are excellent value for money. In the twelve-piece eye blue brush set which I received includes:

Handle material: wooden handle +aluminium ferrule

Bristles material: horse hair +high quality synthetic hair

Brushes Length:15CM-18CM

Maintenance: after use, please make it clean and dry, can provide a better cosmetic effect.

  • Powder brush, apply with natural pressed powder products
  • Round foundation brush, apply with liquid foundation
  • Angled blush brush, apply with blush products
  • Highlight brush, apply products to eye or nose corner
  • Small highlight brush
  • Eyeshadow brush, with horse hair
  • Blending brush
  • Eyebrow brush, to have a tattoo eyebrow effect
  • Eyeliner brush, apply with cream eyeliner products
  • Lip brush, travel lip brush

20160814_183636

How the brushes are stored in the makeup case.

The box also shows you a diagram of what the brushes look like and are all numbered so that you can easily tell the brushes apart-great for those who are not familiar with the various brushes. There is also information on what each brush should be used for again this is really helpful and will allow those less experienced with make-up application to achieve the best results possible from using the correct products with the brushes. Each brush is very soft and does what it is designed to do. I felt that the application with these brushes was of a good standard and didn’t leave me with any brush marks like some brushes have done in the past. I felt that the finished outcome from using sixplus cosmetics brushes was really good and I have been using them ever since. They are my go to brushes and I feel they have made me to feel more confident in applying my makeup.

Another aspect that I am really happy with is the fact that the handles are not too chunky. I have very small hands and have found that some brush handles are far too chunky for me to get a good grip of but these brushes just fit my hands like a glove. The products look great and I like how they are kept very simple in terms of the logo. One thing that might be a good thing to add to them would be to have the number of the brush on the handle for those of us not so proficient with what brush does what area etc- again this is only a small thing I would add.

These brushes and all of the other brush set options can be purchased from eBay and Amazon. I would recommend that you give this company a try and I can honestly say that you will be very satisfied with the brushes. I was a bit hesitant at first as I do like my MAC brushes and Eco Tools but I love to try new companies and Sixplus Cosmetics have blown my away. I like how there is a good variety of brushes in each set and feel that they are a good investment to have.

I would like to thank Brian at SixPlus Cosmetics for allowing me to review these brushes and for introducing them to me. I am very happy with them and can say that these are one of my favourite brushes that I have used.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog . I hope you enjoyed my post and I look forward to hearing from you.

Fortemsports

Hello, and welcome to my blog. Today I will be introducing you all to the sportswear brand Fortemsportswear. This company is based in the United Kingdom and specialises in both men’s and women’s gym and fitness gear. They take their inspiration from the American West Coast of dressing up but still having that laid back feel to the fashion. Fortem create, design and engineer a unique range of activewear, CrossFit and fitness lifestyle apparel and clothing. They aim to have ultimate comfort and truly limitless functionality. They also want you to feel able to do your best in the gear you are wearing and still look stylish.

 

I have been really impressed with this company –Kieran the founder behind the brand works extremely hard to promote his business. I found that his communication with myself was next to none and very quick. He was really happy to go out his way to help with any questions that you have regarding the gear. Which is brilliant from a customer’s point of view. Makes you really feel welcome and valued. You can really tell that he cares for his business and puts in the extra effort required to make it a success. And it makes me feel really privileged to be given the opportunity to promote this brand.

 

When the garments arrived I couldn’t have been happier with what was sent to me. Every item arrived just as described and really well wrapped. I was sent: Limitless 1/4 Zip Pullover – Black/Red, Pro Performance Racerback Tank – Black/Charcoal and Pro Performance Leggings – Charcoal. All of the outfit fitted me perfectly and it actually gave me a feeling of confidence to be wearing it. I felt that I was really smart and looked the part. Being petite I often find it hard to get sportswear to fit me and to look good on. I was really impressed with this brand. I liked the colours and the design of the gym gear. I also felt that the branding was just right – not too in your face yet you could really recognise where it was from. The quality of the material used in creating the products felt good and not cheap. I felt that I could go for a run or go to the gym wearing these pieces and not worry about it ripping or falling apart. I did feel free to move and not restricted at all in fact I could wear this brand all day every day.  When I was out wearing the pieces I could see people looking to see what the brand was and them taking a great interest. I like wearing brands other than the big names and feel that this brand will be one to watch out for in the future.

 

Here are some images showing the items I received.

The Bangle Bear (Bela Bracelets)

On the blog today will be featuring the very simple yet great idea, The Bangle Bear. The Bangle Bear’s creators are two sisters who are big fans of all things classy yet affordable.

Once in our lives we will all have made the mistake of putting a hair bobble on our wrist just in case we needed to put our hair up later on in the day. You may have also forgotten about having one bobble on your wrist and added more throughout the day making a collection on your arm. Or getting a photograph taken and later finding out that you had a bobble on your wrist the entire time and it doesn’t quite go with your outfit you had on at that time. Well fear not as The Bangle Bear has this covered. The Bangle Bear is an affordable solution to the above problems. They can be worn almost anywhere, at work or on a night out. They magically transform your hair bobble into a piece of jewellery which compliments your outfit.

I was very intrigued when I saw this company as I have never heard nor seen of anything like this over in the UK. I am always very interested to try new and exciting things and felt that this brand was right up my street. I got in contact with Bela Bracelets and expressed my interest in working with the company to promote them over in the UK. And with great delight they said yes! They very kindly sent me over a selection of bangle bear bracelets that will be featuring on various outfits over the next coming months.

 

IMG-20160529-WA0012

Cost £9.72 +Shipping (other offers available)

They come in various styles and colours which means that there will be a bangle bear bracelet to complement each and every outfit. There is gold, silver and rose gold options to choose from. The exciting thing is that you can mix and match your hair bobble with the bracelets as they come off. This is a great idea as you may have a little black dress on which means you could have a black hair bobble etc. Even without the hair bobble the bracelets look great and add simple detail to your outfit.

They are very easy to use once you get the hang of how the bobble goes on. The bracelets themselves are a u shape which means that they will fit everyone.

I have worn my Bangle Bear since the day they sent me them. I can’t leave the house without using it. Not only does it look better it also stops your arm from having the horrible marks left from the hair bobble or from feeling like the circulation is being cut off from the bobble being too tight.

13402532_1673068906348915_716374057_n

I would like to thank everyone at Bela Bracelets for allowing me to work with them. I really do enjoy wearing my bangle bear and I hope you all agree that it is a great idea.

The Breath-taking bralette

Hello everyone, and welcome to my blog. Today I am going to be introducing you all to my personally handmade bralette. The bralette was designed and made by Rebecca Jayne, from the Midlands, who is also a very good blogger might I add.

Rebecca Jayne offers the made to measure bralette which is great as you know that it will definitely be a good fit. The bralette comes in lace and in two colours, pastel mint green or black. I chose the black option. The bralettes are very eye-catching and can be worn a number of ways depending how daring you are! You can quite simply just wear them as a bra but bearing in mind that there is no under wiring  so maybe best to do this if you are small busted. You can wear them under shirts and leave the top button open to create a flirty and sexy yet sophisticated look with just a little of the bralette to peer through. The possibilities really are endless.

1169252_588692167945965_1182986699_n

My bralette was beautifully presented 

The lace design that Rebecca uses is so beautiful and very elegant. The bralette that Rebecca designs are a great essential in your wardrobe especially as they are made to measure. Rebecca takes great care in designing her bralettes and you can see how much time and effort she really does put into each piece that she makes. With her having a great love of fashion it reflects in her work.

 

I chose to take my bralette on holiday with me to Gran Canaria. I felt that the design and the landscape would complement one another.  The sunshine in Gran Canaria is also very flattering! I have attached a few images of the bralette so you can see for yourselves how beautiful they truly are.

I would like to take the time to thank Rebecca for creating and designing my very own bralette and urge you all to check out her work and blogging. She really is a true talent and very professional. Links to Rebecca’s work are below. I hope to get the opportunity to work with Rebecca again in the future.

 

Thank you all for reading and as always get in touch with comments/questions etc. Collaboration requests are always welcome. If there is something you would like me to review do get in touch.

HOUSE OF WONDERLAND AKA H.O.W

 

House of Wonderland was started by Tess in 2012. Tess’s mission was to start up a quirky jewellery brand in the heart of Edinburgh. The company now includes accessories and gifts.  In 2015 H.O.W relocated to Berwick- Upon- Tweed. Tess uses local designers and sources materials from local / independent shops.

House of Wonderland now offers the first jewellery club in the UK. It is really easy to join the club and there are a few options to choose from. If you are wanting to try the jewellery club but don’t want them monthly you can order a one of box which costs £19. If you would like to try a trial period there is a three month subscription which costs £50 and finally if you would like to receive a jewellery box every month it costs £17 per month. Every month there is a different theme and a guest designer.

 

I was lucky enough to have been sent a jewellery box and the month’s theme was 50’s Diner. On first inspection of the jewellery box it was filled to the brim with goodies. You certainly do get your money’s worth and more. The planning that goes into the theme for each month, the designing, the creating and sourcing a designer to feature really shows how much pride and joy that Tess puts into her business. You do get great customer service and you truly are valued as a customer. Her communication is very good and she keeps you updated with how things are going and when your box is being delivered.

As I mentioned earlier the jewellery box was filled to the brim with so many wonderful items. I hear you all asking “what was inside the box?”  In the jewellery box included:

  • Metal Vinyl Record Charm Necklace (RRP £10)
  • Vintage inspired diner large magnet (RRP £6)
  • It’s only Rock n Roll A6 art print (RRP £6)
  • Metal pink fabulous badge (RRP £5)
  • Large red hair bow from Miss Cherry Makewell (RRP £3.49)
  • Make your own burger garland kit (RRP £8)
  • Mini burger candy (RRP £1)
  • Pizza wish bracelet (RRP £4)
  • 50’s diner sticker pack (RRP £5)
  • Burger cross stich pattern from Geeky Stitching Company
  • HOW Newsletter with Miss Cherry Makewellinterview
  • A clue to next month’s theme

 

I personally feel that this box is a great idea and you can see how unique it is from any other monthly subscription out there. It gives you the chance to own quirky jewellery that you won’t get from the everyday shops. It is also a great opportunity for up and coming designers to showcase their designs and to gain new customers.

 

 

 

I have had so much fun wearing the jewellery and have had so many compliments regarding the pieces. The jewellery really does work well for day time and evening outfits. Go on and treat yourselves.

 

 

I am so excited to seewhat the other themes for the months are and I hope that you will all go check out HOUSE OF WONDERLAND and even subscribe to the jewellery club. It really is a great investment.

Fabulous badge featured top right and bottom left. Pizza bracelet bottom right.

I would like to thank Tess at HOUSE OF WONDERLAND for sending me my jewellery box it really was a fantastic opportunity and I hope to work with her again in the future.

 

Thank you all for reading. As always if you have any questions or recommendations please do get in contact with me. For collaborations please email me.
