Why does my image look always nicer in Photoshop, and then once I upload them on Imgur or Blogger they became darker. Any tips for what to do please let me know. Okay, going back to the actual post, today I just wanted to share my thought on the John Frieda Go Blonder Set. I love having blonde hair and I will do everything to get rid of the gingery tone from natural hair colour. As well as I am maintaining the blonde ombred ends. 

The John Frieda Go Blonder range is just a life saver of mine, always make my hair colour look amazing! I know that Fleur De Force didn't like this range, as they done some damaged to her scalps, where as I haven't been having any issues. I tend to use the Shampoo every second wash, along with the conditioner. Sometimes I tend to use the conditioner with other shampoos. To be honest my hair did get lighter, it's not a dramatic change, but something did happen. The shampoo smells really nice, my hair don't became flat after using it, indeed they have lots of volume. The conditioner does make my hair softer and less frizzy, again the frizz is less visible but not something amazing, I still use a serum at the ends of my hair to smooth everything down. Although I would recommend you the duo if you want your hair to look a bit more lighter, as well as you want to get rid of the brashy tones from your hair.  Have any of you had a chance to try it out before?

bronzers for pale girls

NARS CONTOUR DUO in OLYMPIA, CLARINS BRONZING DUO in SHADE 01 LIGHT, THE BODY SHOP HONEY BROZNER in SHADE 01 LIGHT

I never been into bronzing before, as I am pretty pale and every bronzer looks orange on my face. I just wanted to introduce you to my three new lovers, decided that I won't include the Nars Laguna, as it's been featured on my blog so many times and I don't want to keep on repeating myself how much I love it.

NARS Contour Duo in Olympia: While browsing at the counter, I came across Nars Contour Duo, I never seen it before so I guessed it was something new. The product is matte, haven't noticed any glittery particles. The powder blends really well on the face. The highlighter is very powdery, and it isn't really illuminating on the skin, I mostly use it to pale out a bronzer if I just apply too much. I also like to use it under my brows. The product is amazing for pale girls! Although I would say it's not really a product that you need, for the price there are many other contouring/bronzer out there.
Clarins Bronzing Duo in Light: Ahh this have been on my wishlist for so long! I bought it at the end of the summer. The Left side is more matte, whereas the right side is more glittery, it's a perfect duo once mixed together. I would only use the left side as a contour as it not that glittery, although if you want to add more warm tones to your pale skin, I would recommend using it on the places which the sun would normally hit. Looks absolutely stunning on the skin, easy to blend, is not as powdery as the Nars Duo. The packaging is also really beautiful.
The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in Light: Finally something that is a lot more cheaper, I would recommend you to watch out for Body Shop offers before buying it for the full price. This is a powdery products, but once you tap off the excess product from the brush it looks flawless on the skin! It's a matte bronzer, doesn't look orange on the skin. I find it to be really similar to the Benefit Hoola Bronzer. Doesn't have any scent to it. If you on a hunt for a cheap, but amazing bronzer just go for it, you have nothing to lose.

my foundation collection

Holy Molly! I just realised how many foundations I actually own. Okay this is scary. One face doesn't really need 10 foundations, but I just can't help myself, foundations are my favourite things to try out. I already have a list of foundations I want to try out next, if you have any recommendation of medium coverage, dewy finish foundation, please let me know.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation: The Studio Fix Fluid will be forever my favourite! The colour match is great, works so well with my skin. The coverage is medium, but once it dries out you can build it up to full coverage. I will soon update you with a full review.
L'Oreal True Match Foundation: I have mention this foundation, quite a few times on my blog. I do still like it, but mixed with other foundations. Apparently it's very similar to Giorgio Armani, but I have never tried any GA foundations, yes they are on my wish list. You can read my thought on the True Match here.
L'Oreal Nude Magique Foundation: Haven't used it lately, just because the coverage is a lot more lighter and the texture is really runny. I love to wear it during the summer, as it goes along with the heat. More indept review is over here.
Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation: Ahh this is my true love! I can't express how much love I have for this foundation! My all time favourite summer foundation, I think this is my second or third bottle. It's so tiny, so you can easily take it on holiday with you. Again the review is over here.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation: Winter favourite, I call this a full coverage foundation, although it's a medium coverage foundation. I love how long it lasts on the skin, does make the skin look slightly cakey, when you just apply too much. I really wish it would come with a pump, that would be so much easier.
Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream: My first ever CC Cream, so I can't really compare it to others. I wonder if all CC Cream are so light weight, but have such a great coverage. It's very similar to the Foundation, but more watery in the formula.
Dior Star Foundation: I can't say much about this foundation just yet, as it's fairly new to my collection and I only used it three times so far, but I do really like it.
Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation: I don't really know what to say, I have a love hate relationship with the Silk Creme Foundation. Sometimes it looks so flawless on my skin, but on the other day it just sits on my pores and looks really bad. I do love the coverage, but I think I need to work out which primer would be perfect for it.
Chanel Vitalumiere Compact Foundation: Ehh I could say it's £40 of waste! Looks so bad on my skin, it's really thick. Very yellow on the skin, I much more prefer the liquid version. I will try to give it another go, as it did cost a lot of money.
Bourjouis 123 Perfect Foundation: I am currently using this on daily basic, as I am trying to use it up, I do really like the way it looks on my skin, the colour match is perfect. It's very light on the skin, blends really well. Lasts around 6hours on the skin.

What are your favourite foundations? Have you tried any foundation I've mention above? After having a read about my current foundation collection, are there any foundations you would recommended me to try out?

meet the kitten: casper

Hello my lovelies! It's finally time to introduce you to our new family member, Casper. Our little ghost Casper, he is such a cutie! I love his blue eyes, he is a really active cat, guess like most kittens are. If you may already know we already own Maya (she is turning 4 this year), she is also a Persian cat. She is still getting used to Casper, he wants to play with her, but she just keeps showing him she is the boss in this house, although she likes to be in the same room with him, as whenever he is not around she will go and look for him.

Casper was born on the 11th of November, he is 10 weeks old at the moment. I been spamming my facebook and instagram profile with cute photos of him, I just want to document his childhood, as it's our first cat which is with us from kitten. Maya have joined the family when she was almost one year old, as we bought her in Poland and she grew up with my grandparents, while we were waiting for her passport. I might do one post one day about what vet stuff you need to do with your kitten etc, although I am not a pro. I love how he falls asleep on my laps or next to my neck, such a warm fluffy feeling. Will definitely keep you updated on how he grows and his health.
