After how well my last experiences with Garnier products went, I jumped at the chance to try something else from the range! When they offered to send me a bottle of Garnier Fructis Miraculous Oil I was very interested as I am a big fan of hair oils.

With all of the bleaching and damage that I do to my hair, drying it out is a big concern for me so any product which can keep it healthy is very important.


So what is the idea behind the product?

I was contacted a little while ago by to try out some of their products and considering my hair obsession we settled on a GHD to play with!

As you guys know by now, I’m trying to make my life a bit better one tiny thing at a time in hopes that all the tiny things will add up to big things and being happier in general. As silly as it sounds, when I look good I feel a lot happier and more motivated.

In my ideal life where I’m so rich that I never have to worry about money or anything other than which beautiful gown I’ll wear that day I think I would spend a large amount of time doing my hair every morning. Unfortunately in real life, time-to-do-my-hair tends to get over run by time-doing-the-washing. So the age old problem: how to look cute without having to spend hours doing it?

So I’m taking on bad hair days with the help of RY and GHD! I came up with 10 hairstyles that can be done in less than 5 minutes, perfect for busy and lazy days!

But before we get into the hairstyles, let’s do a quick review of the GHD 😀

Lottie was totally begging me to straighten out her crimps but I don’t trust her to use hot appliances without supervision.


How To Use The L’Oreal Rowenta Steam Pod Hair Straightener – Violet LeBeaux

Today I’ll show you how I use my L’Oreal Rowenta Steam Pod to get super smooth straight hair. It’s totally awesome and doesn’t damage hair as much as a traditional straightener, I love it!

FOREO LUNA Cleansing Tool Review! Mini Life Overhaul

Over the last few months I’ve been trying to change my life a bit. Nothing crazy but James and I are trying to eat a bit more healthily, treating my skin better and work in actual routines rather than just going to bed when I’m too tired to work anymore. We are even trying to exercise a bit… that’s a bit much though so baby steps!

Anyway skin care is something that I want to learn more about. I tend to get frustrated at the possibilities of allergic reactions so I put it in the “too hard” basket and don’t put in the time and effort to research things thoroughly. It’s not a great attitude to have really so I decided enough was enough, time to take better care of myself!

A few weeks ago I was contacted by FOREO to test out their new product, the LUNA Skincare Device, so I jumped at the chance! A fancy face cleansing system has been on my “to buy” list for quite a while but I had never gotten around to researching and pricing them either. I seriously need to stop being so lazy and find time for all of this stuff.


Garnier Goodbye Damage Review, Event and Competition!

A few weeks ago I was invited by the lovely ladies of Brand Meets Blog to attend an event to celebrate Garnier’s new Goodbye Damage range.

Originally I had just planned on putting the photos in a Snapshot post but after I actually used the products properly at home I really wanted to review them fully because they made such a ridiculous difference on my hair! I am alway so sceptical of hair products that make massive claims like the ability to fix split ends but this time I was really pleasantly surprised.

Garnier was nice enough to provide some products for me to giveaway as well down the bottom of the post if you want to try them!

I hadn’t been sure what to expect because Garnier’s branding is usually a little playful, I definitely hadn’t been expecting this…

How To Dye Pink Gradient/Ombre Hair Extensions

I was sent some human hair extensions to play with by VPFashion so I set about dying them to match my actual hair colour. I ordered the lightest blonde but my hair is almost white so I needed to bleach then add the pink over the top as I do on my normal hair.

The results were very good and I had a lot of fun playing around with them. I will wear them quite often to give my hair more volume in places.

You can an $8 discount on the VPFashion site by entering violetlebeaux1031 in the “Referred By YTB Guru” option when checking out.

These clip in extensions were from vpfashion: 

Hair Length – 24 inches
Hair Color – 613A# white blonde
Hair Texture – Straight(Silky)

Pink Gradient/Ombre Hair Extension Instructions!

Hello! Today I’m going to show you how I dyed my hair extensions in the same sort of pink gradient that my real hair is.
I love my hair but sometimes it’s nice to have extra length and volume so… HAIR EXTENSIONS!
I’m using human hair extensions provided by VPFashion.
These ones are #613A- White Blonde. Use the code “violetlebeaux1031” to get $8 off your order.
Link in the description.
These extensions are great quality but the colour is just not quite right.
I used the extensions, my usual blonde dye, my pink dye, scissors, a brush, some paper and my phone as a timer.
Firstly, lay out some paper to protect your surface from the dye because it’s going to get messy!
I would think that most of you would do this in your bathroom rather than your living room so it probably wouldn’t be nessecary.
The next thing I did was mix up the bleach. Please read and follow the instructions that come with the bleach you’re using.

For the rest of the written instructions check my blog or turn on closed captions!
