The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus live @ Rock City, Nottingham

The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus live review at Rock City Nottingham

The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus live review

There are some bands you just love from childhood and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus are one of mine.

Arriving at Rock City in Nottingham on a very chilly March evening I was surprised to find the bands playing in the smaller and more intimate downstairs ‘basement’ room.

Rat Attack

The first support, Rat Attack, began their set quickly. Their lead singer wearing a black sparkly shirt to die for, energetic as he encouraged crowd surfing throughout, diving in himself towards the end of the set.

The “party punk” band proved skilled and I can see their upbeat music becoming popular, one to watch.

Tantrum to Blind

It seemed crowd involvement would also be key as the Swedish band Tantrum to Blind took to the stage. Led by feisty blonde, Melanie Mohlkert, the female-led foursome proved just as impressive as their side cuts.

It was a slow and quiet start but the crowd were soon singing along and bouncing about as they got more familiar with the band, preparing themselves for the main event. Tantrum to Blind proved very fun indeed with their dabbling in electronica, rock and pop, a mix of genres to satisfy most.

The foursome appeared ecstatic as they exclaimed Nottingham as the “best crowd we’ve had this tour” and left with beaming smiles, lurking around the merchandise area to speak to their new and squealing fans.

The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

As The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus arrived the crowd went wild on their feet, appearing a lot more plentiful as people gathered around. They began the set perfectly with ‘False Pretense’ from their first (and my all time favourite) album Don’t You Fake It. The lively crowd moved and snapped along, cameras in hand. Moving  on to newer things they began ‘Don’t Hate’ from the 2010 EP The Hell or High Water with Ronnie Winters showing just how loud those screams can be.

However, it was not long before we were back to the popular and classic Don’t You Fake it of 2006 with the songs ‘In Fate’s Hands’, ‘Cat and Mouse’ and ‘Damn Regret’, encouraging a mass of mosh circles and big smiles. Winters humbly asked if we could recall the older music as people swayed to the softer ‘Cat and Mouse’, before demanding the crowd to become rowdy for  ‘Damn Regret’: ” We came all the way from Florida for you guys, get those fists in the air”.

So, what did I think of The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus live?

We then got round to ‘The Crazy Ones’ off their new album Et Tu, Brute? Unfortunately, I couldn’t really hear Winters on the microphone but the fast pace of the music kept people going and it proved itself to be a popular and anticipated song. Back to the past again with ‘Reap’ from the third album Am I The Enemy 2011. Everyone went a bit mad here, their arms flying about nicely to Winters impressive set of lungs and the rest of the bands impressive guitar riffs and drum solos.

The band from Florida then gave us ‘Justify’ with Winters saying: “not the most popular but one of our favourites” before encouraging a mosh circle and a load of screams with ‘Casting the First Stone’ from The Hell or High Water.

Onto calmer things we got an acoustic version of both ‘Your Guardian Angel’ and ‘Seventeen Ain’t So Sweet’, the latter done by Winters as a solo as he exclaimed: “I sing and you sing,  just you and me, no effects.” Calm entered the basement as arms swayed and the crowd sang along, an experienced Winters singing strongly with them.

However, this is The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and we all know they don’t do things quietly for long. The band finished with the oh so powerful ‘Face Down’, a favourite of many from their first album. I am sure that the sounds of clapping and vibrations from the movement of the mosh upon the floor echoed that intimate basement for some time after we all departed.

Do you like The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus? Have you been to one of their live shows?

Hair Care: Lee Stafford As Ruff As You Like Clay

Lee Stafford: AS RuFF AS YoU LiKE review

Oh, don’t you just love the fluorescent pink packaging of Lee Stafford products?

I just knew the Lee Stafford As Ruff As You Like Clay would be just perfect for guys hair. I have never had a need to use clay products and tend to go for mouse or hairspray to add a bit of volume to my hair.

This clay works to give the beloved messy hair look and can be used upon dry or wet hair depending on how extreme you want your styling. It has a nice fragrance, texture of a putty, and is suprisingly the colour of actual clay!

SO, WHAT DO I THINK OF THE RUFF AS YOU LIKE IT CLAY?

What I really like about this product is the inclusion of  both palm oil and Shea butter to treat the hair. It makes the clay easier to work with, giving you that perfect look with a wonderful matte finish.

After washing and towel drying , I applied a small amount of the clay and styled as usual. My decision was unanimous, the clay was really easy and nice to work with – and doesn’t leave your hair greasy like other clay products.

Giving a messy look without leaving lots of residue in their hair. Lee Stafford promises that the clay will give the hair “texture, definition and control” and I indeed found that it did. It provides a rough and ready, just-got-out-of-bed style, and an impressive hold, what more could you want?

Have you tried any Lee Stafford products? What hair products do you use daily?

Trying the limited edition L’Occitane Shea Honey Hand Cream

L'Occitane Shea Honey Hand Cream

L’Occitane Shea Honey Hand Cream Review

Introducing the limited edition Shea Honey Hand Cream. L’Occitane recently hosted a giveaway on their Facebook page. On reaching 75000 likes, they promised to send out vouchers so customers could redeem one tube of 30ml hand cream.

Customers were allowed to choose between Shea Honey, Shea Butter, Lavender, Cherry Blossom and Rose des Champs.

To be brutally honest, I’ve never purchased an item from L’Occitane before. My previous experience with the brand comes from sneaking a dash of my mum’s creams from time to time.
The L’Occitane Shea Honey Hand Cream offers a delicious and sweet scent of honey, which proves to be very long lasting.
In addition, the hand cream contains twenty per cent natural shea butter. This works wonders, nurturing and revitalising winter damaged hands.
The thick white cream soaks into the skin, leaving hands instantly soft and nourished without the usual stickiness associated with hand creams.

SO, WHAT DID I THINK?

The creamy formula is also gentle enough for those with sensitive skin thanks to the lovely natural ingredients within. They work in tandem to soothe and comfort tired and aching hands.
Finally, the packaging is adorable! A little illustrated brown bear sits eating his honey as his bee companions buzz around him tending to their hive.
Have you tried L’Occitane hand creams before? What was your experience?

Dressing for your body shape, not dress size

Body Shapes-tile

Why you should be dressing for your body shape and not your dress size

Dressing for your body shape is so important. The amount of times I’ve been out with my female family members and friends and heard the frustrated cries from their dressing room while jumping about in an outfit is ridiculous.

Worst thing is, I too have been guilty of exclaiming ‘why doesn’t it look right?!’ before giving up and slinking off for a coffee and depleted chat.

Shopping can be both a pain and a joy. When it comes to finding the perfect outfit, the amount of damage changing room blunders can cause us girls is shocking.

I’ve decided to take Trinny and Susannah’s 12 body shapes as a definitive guide to help you dress to suit your body shape. It’s time to avoid body criticism and dress to show off your best assets!

A guide to different body shapes

APPLE: Average chest, larger tummy, flat bum and average legs.

BELL: Small shoulders and chest, small and short waist with large thighs and bottom.

BRICK: Broad shoulders, undefined waist, average tummy, flat bum and large thighs and calves.

CELLO: Large chest, hips, bottom, and thighs with a  short waist and slim lower legs.

COLUMN: Slight waist, long legs, same width shoulders, and hips.

CORNET: Broad shoulders, small breasts, undefined waist, slim hips, and long slender legs.

GOBLET: Broad shoulders, large chest, undefined waist, narrow hips, and long legs.

HOURGLASS: Large chest, small and short waist, big hips, and generous thighs.

LOLLIPOP: Large chest, slight waist, slim hips, and long legs.

PEAR: Small chest, long waist, flat stomach, and large legs.

SKITTLE: Average chest, slim waist, average stomach, large thighs, and calves.

VASE: Large chest, longer defined waist, hips to match, slim thighs and legs.

Which body shape am I?

Trinny and Susannah Body Shape Quiz

Dressing for your body shape

Now, onto dressing for your body shape. Here’s what to opt for to flatter the following shapes:

Apple: 

To avoid attention to your midriff, wear clothing that elongates your figure and adds structure. Items such as blazers, ruched dresses and shirts, tunics and empire tops that gather below the bust and flow outwards. ‘Opt for bootcut and flat fronted trousers to lengthen and compliment your legs. The use of large vertical print and patterns also works a treat on highlighting your best assets. Avoid baggy, tight and high-necked clothing that will swamp your figure.

Bell: 

The bell, like the pear and skittle, means you’re bigger on the bottom. As bells naturally have a narrow top half, balance needs to be restored to keep you in proportion.  To do so, use volume in clothing to increase your upper half. You need to avoid use of the same colour, v necked clothing and long jackets which will emphasis. Use of turtle and cowl necks, vests and frilly shirts will make your upper half appear larger and your lower half smaller. Wearing pleated heavy fabrics and wide trousers will cover and compliment your widest parts.

Brick: 

Draw attention and create the illusion of a waist with the use of belts and dresses that clinch your midsection. Avoid shapeless clothing and opt for well fitting and structured items that compliment your figure. Strapless items will broaden your shoulders and mini skirts will throw off the proportions of your lower half. Opt for draped fabrics to create curves. Fitted tops and knitwear will compliment your figure. In addition, patterned items will create shape and panelled skirts will define your waist and elongate your body.

Cello: 

The cello is voluptuous and often tall. Everything remains proportionate with a defined waist which needs to be focused on. Wear fitted items that flatter your figure and chest and stand tall. Items such as scooped and V necks, long fitted jackets, empire waist clothing and wide-legged trousers will define and flatter your slim torso, long legs, and large thighs.  Avoid mini skirts, skinny jeans, and polo-necks as these will draw attention to larger areas.

Column:

Like the brick, you must draw attention and create the illusion of a waist. It’s key to use belts and items that clinch your midsection. Use solid colours when choosing clothing. Be sure to avoid prints which will fail to highlight your slender figure or create curves. Opt for high waisted or wide legged trousers. These will frame your waist and show off your legs. Additionally, you can get away with wearing round necklines which will balance your frame. However, avoid cropped items as they’ll elongate and emphasise your long limbs.

Cornet: 

Cornets have athletic and slender figures. Be sure to draw attention and create the illusion of a waist with belts and dresses that clinch your midsection. Shapeless clothes are a no-go. They will throw off your proportions even more. Opt for asymmetric clothing that creates shape and proportion. Skinny jeans will give the illusion of curves and show off your long and slender limbs, as well as flared dresses.

Goblet: 

Known for larger upper halves and slender legs, goblets must take the emphasis off their upper body to create proportion. Avoid baggy clothing (such as shift dresses and wide legged pants), bright colours that will create emphasis on your top half and create disproportion and high neck lines. To compliment, choose empire waisted tops that cinch your waist and flatter your midriff. Wide-necked tops compliment your chest and low-rise trousers skim your hips to compliment slender legs.

Hourglass: 

An evenly proportioned shape that needs simplistic and fitted clothing that works with your natural curves. Opt for items that compliment your chest, hips, and waist and avoid shapeless items. Wrap dresses work well to define your shape, as do scoop and v necklines, three-quarter length sleeves, small belts at the waist, pencil skirts and skinny jeans. Hourglass shapes must avoid layering, baggy clothing, tunics, chunky knitwear and high necklines. These will swamp and covering up throws off proportions and can lead you to feeling and looking frumpy.

Lollipop:

Lollipop’s are tall and slender with long limbs and a sizeable chest so the idea is to broaden your hips and shoulders to maintain proportions. Avoid high necked and high waisted clothing that will over emphasise your chest, long legs and create unbalance, shapeless items are a no go also. Opt for fitted items and draping fabrics to create curves, wide neck lines that will compliment your chest and bring in your waist and flared trousers to balance out your chest and make the most of your slender legs.

Pear: 

Pear are a slim shape with wide thighs, not necessarily hips (a common misconception). To create proportion you must balance your small upper and wide lower half. Opt for items that compliment your chest, hips and waist and avoid shapeless items such as tunics and wrap dresses. Wide and straight-legged pants are great for slimming thighs and adding length to legs, especially dark colours. An A-line skirt works wonders too when covering thighs and creating a classic look. High necks are good to broaden your torso. Avoid skinny jeans that will hug your wider half, mini skirts that will elaborate your thighs and bright colours on your lower half. These will draw unwanted attention and throw your proportions off  balance.

Skittle: 

Similar to the pear, skittles have wide thighs and calves along with voluptuous legs. Once more to create proportion you must balance your small upper and wide lower half. Opt for fitting clothing on your upper half to draw attention away from your lower, detailed blouses work wonders also. The addition of a flared skirt will skim your thighs and highlight your enviably small waist. Like the pear, wide and straight-legged pants are great for slimming your thighs and adding length to your legs. Avoid skinny jeans that will hug your wider half, mini skirts that will elaborate your thighs and calves and bright colours on your lower half that will draw unwanted attention and throw you off balance.

Vase: 

A vase closely resembles an hourglass but with a much longer and gently curving torso that must be complimented in similar ways. With long limbs, it is best to show them off with straight leg trousers and high waisted pencil skirts. Opt for fitted shirts to compliment your waist. It’s best to keep clothing simplistic and to avoid covering up with layers, especially baggy or high necked items that will swamp you.

The key to dressing for your body shape is to understand your proportions and flatter them. At the end of the day, wear what makes you happy and confident!

Feeling festive with Lush Season’s Tweetings Christmas gift box 🎄

Feeling festive with Lush Season's Tweetings Christmas gift box 🎄

Lush Season’s Tweetings Christmas gift box review

I found the Lush Season’s Tweetings box at my door this festive season containing an amazing variety of skin-loving treats to aid you against the chill.

Who can resist Lush at Christmas? The bright wrapping paper, the array of content and the delicious scents filling the air of your bathroom – and lets face it, the entire house. Actually, who can ever resist Lush products?

So, what did I think of the Lush Season’s Tweetings gift box?

The box includes the Twilight shower gel, Ro’s Argan body conditioner, Tiny Hands solid hand cream and Snowcake star soap.

Twilight shower gel (100g)

This is my absolute favourite of the Christmas limited edition shower gels. It smells absolutely amazing and is a ridiculously unique fragrance. It is a very sweet lavender smell.

I often associate the smell of lavender as a harshly lasting and a rather dull fragrance. However, this shower gel has taken that smell and added a load of sugary goodness and some wonderful silver shimmer too!

It really does get me off to sleep after a long day at university and leaves you feeling wonderfully calm and relaxed.

Tiny Hands solid hand cream (60g)

Tiny Hands is a solid hand cream bar shaped as a delicate little palm. It’s a very creamy bar and although small proves to be a very hard worker indeed as it nourishes your hands, soothing and repairing the skin.

It leaves my hands feeling fabulously smooth and fresh with its beautiful floral fragrance of chamomile, marigold and lime flower oils. Leaving you, and your hands, feeling wonderfully relaxed!

The addition of cocoa and fair trade shea butter provide a gorgeous feel for that additional moisturisation. I find it goes on quite oily but give it a few minutes and the product sinks in a treat! I prefer an oilier product on my hands anyway, and this is perfect for winter damaged skin!

Ro’s Argan body conditioner (45g)

This rose oil scented body moisturiser is just delicious. Packed full of nourishing oils and butters. The ingredients include argan oil, brazil nut oil, almond oil, fair trade shea butter, cocoa butter, cupuaçu butter and oji berry juice!

The smell of the rose will leave you feeling luxurious while the ingredients work their magic softening the skin. All you have to do is smooth it all over and rinse off!

Snowcake star soap (70g)

This beautiful festive soap comes shaped as a glittering gold star smelling of sweet Christmas treats with its marzipan and fruit fragrance, it works a treat also!

This soap cleanses and nourishes the skin and lathers up wonderfully, leaving the beautiful rapeseed and coconut oil to treat the skin.

This box is a festive exclusive! Fear not though, Lush gift boxes are available all year round with a variety of amazing products.

Lush FUN in pink review

FUN By LUSH review IN PINK

This has got to be one of the most entertaining products Lush have brought out yet!

I decided to get my FUN by lush in pink (girly skin care stay winning). FUN is a delicious sweet smelling putty  that reminded me of the smells of candyfloss at the fairground and fruity shampoo, defined by lush as the “fruity, candy smells of childhood.” 

FUN is a mouldable putty available in a variety of colours. It has a huge variety of body and hair care uses. It can be used upon the entirety of your body, to wash the hair, as a bubble bath and to mould shapes when you are bored during wash time! It is also available in a variety of different scented FUN colours, as well as being offered in tri-colour rainbow-esque additions – I kind of want the mermaid FUN.

So, what do I think of the Lush FUN in pink?

What I love about this product is its longevity, the smallest amount lasted ages and it comes in a huge 200g slab. It really lathers up, creating lots of bubbles, perfect for entertaining the young and young-at-heart.

This product really brought me back to childhood as I moulded away, creating a variety of odd little shapes and models. Its name says it all, it really is a lot of fun!

Ingredients in FUN include talc for softening the skin, cornflour for its mouldability, glycerine for moisturisation and tonka absolute for that mouth-watering smell.

Overall, FUN is an amazing and unique product, promoting long-lasting giggles in the bathroom and maintaining a squeaky clean routine.  It is perfect for kids, brightening the bathroom, or if you just need a little bit more FUN in your life. Be sure to store it back safely with a twist in its biodegradable wrapper!

Have you tried FUN? What colours would you choose?

Beauty: Soap & Glory Fabulipstick in Perfect Day

Soap & Glory Fabulipstick

Soap & Glory Fabulipstick in Perfect Day review

I have always adored Soap and Glory products and have used them for numerous years, stocking up madly at Christmas time on all their gorgeous limited edition boxes.

When I discovered that Soap and Glory had really worked on their cosmetic range I was desperate to try some of their new products. I chose the collagen boosting, super-colour Fabulipstick in Perfect Day*.

The packaging a mix of pretty pink and cheeky black, a 1950’s British pin up boldly clutching onto her oversized prize (Fabulipstick of course!). The casing is black with pink print, the body gold as you remove the lid, a very glamorous looking item. What I noticed instantly was the delicious smell, probably down to the addition of shea and monoi butter.

So, what did I think of the Soap & Glory Fabulipstick in Perfect Day?

It has a creamy matte texture yet applies like a dream, with a luxuriously rich dark beige colour and a warm rosy pink finish. It is one of those shades that works day and night, utterly versatile and extremely wearable, with enough oomph to make a bold impact in the evening. I think the shade would compliment any skin tone and managed to look good on someone with one as pale as mine.

I found the lipstick really did make my lips look plumper. However, I am not entirely sure if it was down to the collagen boosting ingredients or the amazing colour!
I can only put the moisturisation and long-lasting nature of the colour down to the vitamin E in the Fabulipstick. After a few days of wear my lips continued to feel in a great condition with a lovely softness.
The colour of the lipstick is just perfect, a staple shade for any lipstick lover. It is long lasting, offering colour for hours and a subtle shine. The Fabulipstick is also available in the shades Naked Beige and Red My Lips, here is to hoping they bring out more!

Soap and Glory products are only available from Boots online or retail stores and the Fabulipstick costs only £9! Get your hands on one now, your pout will love you for it!

STEAMCREAM Wendy edition

STEAMCREAM review - Wendy edition - The LDN Gal

A STEAMCREAM review

I have been intrigued by STEAMCREAM for a while now. It is a product handmade in small batches in the United Kingdom and Japan entirely out of fresh, natural and vegan  ingredients. A brand that has recently been causing a storm in the skin care world.

STEAMCREAM is made via a unique steam process. A shot of steam is used to force the ingredients to fuse together, creating a lightweight, effective and absorbent emulsion packed with essential oils. These oils penetrate the areas most in need of care and are suitable for every skin type.

So, what did I think of STEAMCREAM?

I chose the Wendy special edition tin, featuring makeup artist Wendy Rowe’s portrait and the advice to use STEAMCREAM as “a great pre-makeup base”. Taking this advice, I used the cream over the entirety of my face. The cream has a simple and fresh (what I believed to be lavender) smell. It left a light, almost matte, texture upon my skin. I found it took a while to sink in, but I was left with such wonderfully smooth skin that the wait was worth it!

The cream is made with an impressive and beautiful smelling selection of natural materials including, oatmeal, orange flower water, almond, jojoba oils and cocoa butter.

In essence, every tin of STEAMCREAM contains an identical product. The variety comes into play when selecting your tin design. They have a huge variety, suitable for all tastes, some limited edition by well-known designers! These robust tins are made from stainless steel and perfect for reusing, be it to hold more beauty products or as storage! I admire STEAMCREAM for this eco-friendly and conscious attitude, and their use of raw and sustainable materials. To top it all off they are 100% against animal testing!

Is STEAMCREAM worth the hype? Definitely! It can be used all over the body, is ethical and moisturises like a dream! Your body deserves the treat!

Have you tried STEAMCREAM? What do you think of the gorgeous variety of tins?

Fashion: White Leaf Company Bird Print Scarf

White Leaf Company Scarf

White Leaf Company review

I love bold prints and with Autumn well and truly here I needed something to keep myself warm without an overload of knitwear. This delicate Bird Print Scarf in Yellow by the White Leaf Company* was just perfect.

This scarf is very large (measuring 180 x110cm) making it perfect for wrapping it around your neck or looping it delicately as I did to keep you cosy. It has a beautiful chiffon feel and is 100% polyester. Not only is it warm, but the lightweight nature of the material leaves it feeling lovely on, not overly stuffy like most outerwear.
The print is wonderful and what I adore about the scarf. A light yellow contrasted against the bright colours of the swooping, resting and calling birds and delicate butterflies upon it, the combination is just brilliant!

What I love about White Leaf Company is the huge selection of snug and pretty accessories they offer, including a selection of jewellery, bags and scarves. This gorgeous scarf is only £13.95, offering the perfect practical and fashionable solution to all your A/W troubles! You’ll never have an excuse for dull accessories again!

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Tweezers and Brow & Lash Brush

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Tweezers

The Vintage Cosmetic Company review

The Vintage Cosmetic Company is centered around the production of 1950’s vintage inspired cosmetic accessories. Ridding woman’s attention of their household chores, their motto is ‘ditch the baking and focus on the glamour’. I did just that with The Vintage Cosmetic Company Tweezers* and The Vintage Cosmetic Company Brow & Lash Make-Up Brush*.

The Tweezers are just gorgeous, super girly with a detailed floral print. The reverse is a candy pink and features The Vintage Cosmetic Company’s italicised logo. What makes these tweezers different you say? Well they are made from high quality stainless steel and have an impressive sharp slanted tip to pluck at those stray hairs, leaving you with perfectly shaped brows every time!

So, what did I think of The Vintage Cosmetic Company tweezers and Brow Lash brush?

Having quite large and shapely brows, I was impressed to find that my eyebrows were looking groomed in a matter of minutes! The slanted tip really ease the usual sting associated with tweezers and I finished without the slightest bit of redness!

The Brow & Lash Make-up Brush features the same candy pink colour. The brow side of the brush is fitted with thick and sturdy bristles, grooming those wild brows into submission. The lash side is plastic, separating lashes to avoid clumping when applying your mascara and giving you a nice wide-eyed look.

I found the strong bristles of the brush to really work wonders for my eyebrows, really complimenting their new shape (thank you tweezers!) as I fanned out my eyelashes with a few slicks of mascara.

These products are a necessity for any beauty enthusiast, not only are they pretty, they also work to a professional standard, both long-lasting and sturdy. They are also very affordable at only £8 each for the Tweezers of Brow & Lash make-up brush! Definitely in the running against the cosmetic accessory giants.

Ladies it is about time you started treating your lashes and brows! Eyes are the windows to the soul, so lets frame them properly!

Have you tried any products from The Vintage Company? What is your favourite make-up accessory?
