Amazing Lashes- Channel Le Volume Mascara

With thousands on the market and all adverts telling us the same thing, some more persuading than others, i decided to take risk and pay a cheeky £22.50 for Channel Le Volume Mascara. This was a purchase i will never regret and i am sure i will stick to religiously. 

Do you ever find yourself in the middle of a beauty store browsing for a mascara and then realise you have a selection in your hand to still choose from? I am very guilty of this, after realising that by the time i had purchased three disappointing mascaras over a period of time, i could have chosen the more expensive option in the first place and had the dreamy lashes within the first purchase but still paid the same amount of money. Sometimes waiting to discover the perfect mascara can be frustrating and costly.

Realising the truth made me feel like a fool however I am now on my third tube of Channel Le Volume mascara in just under a year and a half. Thats one mascara every 6 months which is pretty good going considering I apply it most days. 




In any mascara you want volume, length and colour, this one seems to have it all. It has a perfect, pointed and sturdy brush, suitable for applying as many layers as you may need. Due to the brush bristles being so close together it individually separates the lashes and extends them without creating any clumps.  Also, the second best thing about this mascara is how quickly it drys, this enables those fresh and curled lashes to dry instantly, increasing volume. 

Normally, my mascara will last me a whole day in the office however if i am going out in the evening i may add another coat to define the lashes a bit more but generally it will last a solid day. 

This Channel product is a no smudge, lasting and defining mascara that is definitely one of my favourite to create a generous amount of volume whilst keeping clumps at bay.

T'is the Season to be jolly!


Two breakfast events,  300 Christmas invites sent, drinks out and a visit to Oxford St Christmas Lights - what a busy but exciting week it has been!

I organised a flat night out to Oxford St Christmas Lights, however I had second thoughts when I realised how busy and manic it would be- not sure about you but crowds of people really do make me feel uncomfortable!

Anyway off I went, I finished work early and jumped on the tube. When i arrived at Oxford Circus station I could not believe my eyes, it wasn't busy at all! After all that worrying the excitement soon kicked in! 

After joining my friends in the queue for about 10 minutes we were then herded like sheep into the main central arena. For those of you who know Oxford St the arena was located right outside John Lewis. 

Before Cheryl Cole kick started the festive excitement and pushed the button to turn all the lights on, Jess Glynne, Neon Jungle, Charlie and Chocolate Factory and Rixton amazed us with their singing talent, I must say Jess Gylnne was by far my favourite.


It was pretty impressive how this huge blanket of light lit up the whole of Oxford St, which is a mighty mile and a half long! ( The longest high street in Europe! ) As you can imagine everyones first words involved the word 'beautiful', the pictures do not do it justice at all.



I am sure half the nation, if not more, know of the famous Monty the Penguin who has been all over our televisions this week. John Lewis added to the Christmas spirt by playing their festive advert on the large screens, which of course brought a tear to my eye and pulled on my heart strings. Afterwards they dropped the curtains on their window displays, i cannot describe how awesome and brilliant they are.I hugely recommend if you can walk pass John Lewis and admire their imaginative windows to do so. It may not sound that exciting but trust me your festive sprit will increase ten folds.

I'm so so glad I decide to go, it honestly started the festive period of with a big bang and lots of sparkle!

Hopefully i will also make it to Regent Street lights next Sunday too!

What Christmas Lights do you plan to see this Year?
