Bindis, Blowjobs, and Bikinis – Malia 2014!

This post should sum up the great time my girls and I had in Malia and some of my favourite outfits of the week! Enjoy…

My outfit for our first night out! I couldn’t wait to wear this tropical print top from New Look. I wore it with my foil print cut off Levi shorts, pink jelly shoes, and white bumbag. As you can see, I don’t own a strapless bra so I had to tuck in the straps – hence why it’s poking out in this picture! I’ll add it to my shopping list.

I wore my high waisted bright green/yellow bikini for the boat party (which I was extremely apprehensive about as I got motion sickness on my first one in Ibiza…thanks to my friend Storm who bought travel sickness tablets, I was fine!). I thought my Nike’s looked quite cool, so opted for those instead of sandals (although my feet were quite warm). I didn’t bother wearing makeup or doing my hair. Although the bikini is quite plain, it got lots of compliments…cheers Topshop!

I absolutely loved this outfit! I wore it to go to see Skepta, and loads of people commented on it and asked me where I got it from – Hotmess Clothing, incase you were wondering. They even featured this picture of me on their Instagram and it had almost 900 likes last time I checked, wahey! You’ve got to wear something under this though, as it’s see through. I hadn’t really planned on what I was going to put underneath, so I used the Topshop green bikini and thought it looked quite cool. My girls did my hair for me in these fabulous mermaid curls using a wand, and I wore my new Mac lippy ‘Heroine‘ which is a gorgeous purple colour. The one thing I will say if you’re going to buy some Hotmesh from Hotmess, is watch out for anyone with a studded bumbag…I got stuck quite a few times and had to carefully de-tangle myself!

I couldn’t wait to wear this top and shorts, although it was towards the end of the holiday when I finally did so I felt quite bloated from all of the drinking, eurgh. At least I got to wear my gorgeous flatforms though! The top, shorts, and shoes are all from River Island.

I wish I could do plaits like this myself, but my clever hairdresser friend Sian did it for me. Wearing Mac – Heroine again on my lips, and a bindi.

I did try to take a quality picture of this outfit, but it didn’t work. This is the best one I could find! Wearing my River Island mermaid bag, long Primark kimono, River Island shorts and Topshop crop. I got my bindis from eBay.

We went to one of those nights where everyone gets a matching t-shirt to wear, which I’ve always wanted to do for some reason. It was called ‘guilty pleasures’, and they played loads of old school rap, hip hop, R ‘n’ B, and garage. I loved it! I bought my flower crown from eBay last year for Leeds fest and decided to recycle it.

My beautiful friends, AKA the Princess Wolfpack! I let everybody have a bindi, because that’s just the kind of friend I am.

I needed a beach bag and found this in one of the tat shops. Absolutely love the pattern and am still using it now I’m back home!

I just had to get a Henna tattoo – I asked for a Mehndi design for 10 euros and this is what I got. It’s wearing off now *sadface*.

These are what Nikos from Charlie’s Bar calls ‘blowjobs’! Very nice shot and I highly recommend giving him a visit. Such a fabulous guy!

 

Although I looked forward to my holiday in Malia, I was worried that It wouldn’t live up to my last girly holiday in Ibiza. I was wrong! It might not be as glamorous as Ibiza, but the drinks are cheap; the people are lovely, and everywhere is so easy to get to (not like Ibiza where you have to take 3 coaches and a private helicopter to get to a club). I definitely recommend it!

HK (Headkandy) Hair Extensions Review

Due to being so busy these past few weeks, this is my first post in a while. I’ve been desperate to do it, but my pending holiday to Malia has meant that I’ve had no time to do anything at all apart from my work and the gym! Aren’t up-coming holidays supposed to be exciting? Anyway, I fly tomorrow, so I’ve calmed down a bit now and feel a little excited. I should also have lots of lovely outfit posts when I get back in a week (if my besties don’t mind being my photographers), so I look forward to doing those!

Now, moving swiftly on. Today I’m reviewing my HK hair extensions, also known as HeadKandy hair extensions. I much prefer the old name, as there’s a Chinese/Cantonese restaurant in my town called HK Takeaway and it reminds me of that…ha!

Anyway I won’t babble on too much, I’ve never done a review post before so I’ll just say what I think is important and then leave it at that.

These extensions have always been amazing for me. This is my fourth set, and they’ve never changed quality. You might think that they’re expensive when you compare them to extensions you can buy from a market, but you get what you pay for in my opinion! Mine always last for ages too, so the money is well worth it. A piece from my last set is shown in the last picture (I think it was called ‘Hot Toffee’), and I haven’t brushed it or anything there (didn’t have time for that either, lol!).

I’ve been wearing them for a whole year, and even though I’ve had more blonde put in my hair over the year, they still matched perfectly, like you wouldn’t believe! I had my hair way more blonde this time, so I decided to order a new set to match; ‘California Highlighted’.

I’m sorry I didn’t style my hair better or take a better picture for this post, but I’ll be wearing the extensions in Malia so you’ll be able to see them in all of their glory in my future posts. I also have a little bit of brown still underneath my hair as you can see, but I think my new set still match well. I could carry on talking about them forever, but here is what I love about them in a nutshell:

  • They’re gorgeously thick and give my usually flat, fine hair so much volume.
  • There are a huge range of colours to choose from, but you’ll often find that multiple colours would match your hair as they’re so versatile.
  • They last for ages (I didn’t even use heat protection spray on my last set – naughty me!).
  • They come with instructions on how to apply them for extension newbies.
  • It’s really easy to choose your shade; either browse through the shade matcher feature on the Dirty Looks site, or send some pictures of your hair in natural daylight to the ‘Dirty Looks’ Facebook page.
  • They come in a cute little box that you can store them in safely.
  • You don’t have to sew them yourself like the extensions we all bought from the market like when we were 14/15 years old.
  • Everybody always tells me how natural they look (they can’t believe it when I tell them It’s not my real hair!).
  • You can dye them yourself if you need to.
  • They’re human Remy hair which means you can style them just like your own hair.
  • There’s a good range of lengths to choose from. I chose 16-18 inches with my last set just to thicken up my own hair rather than add length, but this time I went for 20-22 inches because I fancied looking like a beautiful blonde mermaid.
  • You can mix wefts of different shades to create a whole new look.
  • Their delivery is super fast!

Things I Don’t Like About These Extensions:

  • They now refer to themselves as HK extensions, which reminds me of my local Cantonese takeaway! That is literally all I can think of,  lol.

I’ve been wearing hair extensions since the age of 14, so now at the age of 22 I’d say I’m a seasoned professional. These are by far the best extensions I’ve ever had, and I wouldn’t dream of buying them from anywhere else!

Here are a few random pictures of me wearing HeadKandy hair extensions at different times:
