HD Brows Treatment

Sooooo, had my brows done today via the HD Brows treatment. I like my brows, but felt that there were uneven and needed tidying up desperately!
The HD Brows was completed by Anycia, of Anycia's Nails & Beauty. What is great about this treatment, is it is tailored to you and what suits you. A combination of threading and waxing helps tidy the brows, whilst a soft dye and some HD Brow shadow is applied.
As I am quite fair, Anycia used soft tones to gradually define my brows to frame my face, without them looking overpowering.
Anycia was very professional, she gave me a patch test beforehand and provided forms for reference and information. She even showed me how to use my HD Brows Foxy palette and most importantly, took her time to get perfect results! HD Brows is not just limited to the ladies, gentlemen can have the treatment too!
Would I do this again? Definitely!

You can read Anycia's column about the HD Brow treatment in the next issue of glean magazine, out 3rd January 2014 at

Footner Exfoliating Socks

I used to have ok feet but some years spent teaching have taken their toll on my poor tootsies.
Religious about regularly slathering my feet with richly formulated creams or Vaseline and removing hard skin with a pumice, they still didn't improve, whereas beforehand this was enough. So when I heard of the new Footner Exfoliating Socks I was willing to give it a go, despite the £20 price tag.
In the pack you are supplied with a pair if exfoliating plastic socks containing glycolic acid which you don for an hour whilst the hard skin is removed to reveal newer skin. These were fine on my feet but probably the least attractive, do a little dance if you have to but be careful not to rip the socks! I wouldn't advise using these if you have sensitive, sore or cracked skin.
After a couple of days my feet were peeling a lot, but revealed improved skin.
I have a mixed verdict on these, the price is high and don't expect all the hard skin to be removed. It was improved but I still had to use the pumice stone.
If you want to try them and have the money then give it a go!
