    The Wet Brush - Pro 'Ombre Collection'

    As a hairdresser the idea of 'brushing' your hair when wet has always gone against the grain. You see, back in the day when I was training we were told to never brush wet hair! We were to use a wide tooth comb to detangle the hair followed by our cutting comb to section and cut the hair. So you can understand why the idea of The Wet Brush baffled me......until now! The Wet Brush is specifica...

    I haven't used my Barry M Matte Nail Paint for a little while so decided to dust them off for this weeks 'Nails' post. This is very easy to do. Just select three colours that compliment each other and get a dotting tool or use a kirby grip for the polkadots.  These are matte polishes so I applied OPI Start to Finish for my base coat. You can you it as a top coat too but I like the matte look ...

    Dental Hygiene for Children

    My husband text me a link last week that he had seen on the BBC News* website. The article comes afterThe Royal College of Surgeons recommends that parents should brush their children's teeth until the age of 14 years old. This is due to the high levels of tooth decay in children, leading to the premature removal of baby teeth. This has spurred me onto writing this post, which I’ve been thin...
