Huge Autumn Inspired BOOTS Beauty Haul…

Hola Chummies…

As my favourite time of year vastly approaches it’s no surprise that a haul is in order to celebrate it’s imminent arrival. And with the gorgeous colours of fall looming, my creative side works overdrive looking for fabulous new shades of cosmetics… along with a sprinkling of decent anti-frizz hair care to smooth my wavy locks from the damp & drizzle that Ireland so generously produces.

Needless to say, with a ton of points on my advantage card (and a list of products I’ve been lusting after) I’ve hauled myself right into fall with a bag full of new makeup and hair care goodies to help celebrate my favourite season on the calendar… autumn!

So grab your biggest cup of hot chocolate, put your feet up for a few minutes and check out some of the fall inspired makeup purchases I managed to grab from the shelves of my local Boots store! Don’t forget, you can *Click Here* to subscribe to the Confetti & Curves YouTube channel so you never miss an upload – and I’ve a few exciting videos planned over the next number of weeks so be sure to keep your eyes peeled!

Creating Silky Smooth Curls…

You gals should all know by know just how much I adore testing new hair appliances! Heck, in almost every video my hair’s been styled in an eclectic mix ranging from soft beachy waves to poker straight & partially plated. However, there’s little I love more than a head full of gorgeous springy curls… cue my latest investment: Remington’s Silk Curling Wand.

Being a bit of a novice when it comes to odd shaped wands & their newly acclaimed features (yes, I’m a bit of an old school gal using my rather ancient clamp style curlers) I was super intrigued to find out just how much technology has advanced since I last purchased a curling tool… not to mention the vast choice of styling tools that’s now available to beautify our tresses in an instant! However with my own hair being shoulder length at the moment I had to rope in an extra special little helper (who has much longer locks than I do) to really put this appliance through it’s paces 😉

So if like me you’re a fan of fabulous bouncy curls then maybe you should grab your cuppa and take a few minutes to check out this weeks first impressions video to see how I got to grips with the Remington Silk Curler!

Broken Nails, Split Ends & 30 Day Mascara! Random Beauty haul….

It feels like an age since I last topped up my shelves with a few little random lotions & potions, however over the past week or so I’ve been spotting a few bargains here and there that have caught my attention enough for me to part with my hard earned cash… along with repurchasing up a few beauty essentials that I’ve repeatedly fallen in love with.

I’ve opted for some interesting little notions that have been lining the shelves of my local drug store and discount store, it’s amazing some of the finds you pick up for such great prices when you really aren’t expecting it! In fact, pretty much all of my staple essentials, as well as newbies, were under £5  – just goes to show you really don’t have to break the bank to enjoy some great cosmetic treats gals!

Beautiful Star Electric Straightening Brush….

As most of you know my Achilles heel lies in finding a great bargain… specifically one that promises to banish any of my many flaws; frizzy hair included. So when my darling little sister (aka the enabler) introduced me to the Beautiful Star Electric Hair Straightening Brush that’s currently available from MAKS Blowdry Bar in Lisburn for just under £35 *gasps of disbelief* I was more than intrigued. Of course like any mortal being I simply couldn’t resist the temptation – and at the grand old age of 8, my current straighteners are indeed appliance pensioners & well beyond their hay day.

So in today’s video I thought I’d introduce y’all to my latest ‘me spree’ treat as I test out the highly acclaimed straightening brush on my own follicles. Fingers crossed the results reflect just how in demand this hair care appliance seems to be!

How often do you use your hair straighteners? Is switching to an electric brush something you’d consider? Whatever your thoughts do let me know in the comments below. Hope you enjoy the video chums…
