Harley Medical Group Consultation & 1st Session

Hey lovelies as you may know if you follow me on twitter, I have been talking about the non surgical treatment I have been receiving with Harley Medical Group and that I was going to be reviewing and sharing with you guys my progress. I had been planning this for over three years so had been thinking about it for  long time and wanted it to be with a trusted company with professionals you could rely on. And with that I took the plunge!

So one day I went online to book a free consultation with a nurse to see what treatment I need. I have never been too comfortable with my skin, as I have really large pores which is what makes me have oily skin and as well as that when i was younger in school I suffered from acne and have some scarring as well as discoloration and hyper-pigmentation in some areas of my face which is why I resulted in always wearing foundation to cover and give me a even colour. 


So on valentines day February 14th I went to the Finchley clinic where i was seen by a lovely receptionist who was very welcoming and offered me complimentary chocolates (bonus). Whilst waiting for my time I had my skin analysis done, I had to remove my makeup in order to get a clear picture and I was surprised with how quick it was done. Shortly after I was seen by one of the head nurses called Laura or Lauren (I wish i actually remembered because she was so nice) who talked me through the treatment that would work best with my skin to have the best possible result. I had thought that I would be having a skin peel but she explained to me that a Medical Microdermabrasion would benefit me better (click link for more info here). So after talking for just over a hour and filling out forms I decided to go for one microdermabrasion for £95 as a course of six cost £399 and I wasn't sure if I wanted to fork out such a substantial amount of money on something that may not work. So i booked myself in for one session so then if  I saw positive results with the first, I could then continue with the rest of the package.

Treatment- 1st Session

Two and a half weeks later I was back at the Finchley clinic where I was ready to have my fist session. I was surprised at how the treatment felt as I was laying on the table with my eyes protected from the crystals. It was like a cleansing brush rubbing on your skin a little prickly and warm to the face, as the session went on 'Laura' continued to talk to me making me feel so comfortable ensuring there was no awkward silences. The session was around thirty to forty five minutes and I was covered with little crystals on my clothes and even in my mouth hehe. After cleaning myself and trying to look presentable I paid for the products to use in conjunction with the treatment which was the cleanser, sunblock and exfoliating scrub ( I will go into these products further in the next post).


I was told that my skin would be healing from three days up to two weeks but I should see progress within the first week, and not to wear any make up for the first few days or have any hot baths or saunas as I left, due to my skin being open and sensitive.Whilst using the products I saw results within three days I was astonished my pores were noticeably smaller my skin tighter, smoother and more even in tone and some of the lighter scarring I had reduced. So on that day I was certain I wanted to continue with the rest of the package and called to book myself in with Finchley.

I will continue to write posts on my treatment days and progress and hopefully at the end I will insert before and after pictures to show the stages of each session and my overall review. So keep an eye out for my posts on those and my next post on the products used. I am now having treatment every two weeks till June and have already had my second session(a few days ago) which will be posted next week! Keep Your Eyes Peeled!

A little wishlist

Hey Dolls,

I haven't had a decent wishlist in a little while and whilst browsing the world wide web, I came across River Island and as usual my basket suddenly became full of bits and bobs. But out of the pile I found these little gems that stood out the most.

1. Navy Patch Pocket Utility Vest- £18.00
2. Black Pinafore Skater Dress- £22.00
3.  Blue Floral Print High Waisted Leggings-  £16.00
4. Grey Acid Wash Motorcycle Leggings- £22.00
5. Black Fringed Backless Boxy Crop Top- £25.00
6. Denim Contrast Check Sleeve Boyfriend Shirt- £20.00

Now that the spending ban is nearly over (even though i didn't really need one) I have been carefully picking key items to join the wardrobe family instead of going fairy tale shopping crazy. Bare in mind a lot of these picks are black but I always find that it can mix with anything, even if some of you may disagree with it.

A lot of people I find aren't too keen on River Island clothes and i don't really get why but it is one of the high street stores that i adore the most, there's is always something in there that i wouldn't mind owning for myself.
All the pieces picked in the list above i feel can mix and match with each other which is what i love the most. Yes these items are very casual but I tend to like dressing down and comfy, its the best way to be. 

My fave of the lot has to be the denim shirt!!! I love how the sleeves look like its a completely different shirt underneath and how it pairs beautifully with the plain blue vest and grunge motorcycle leggings, all you have to add is some black combat boots or dr martens. I also love how the beautiful floral print high waisted leggings (ready for summer... if we have one) can be paired with the tasseled crop top. 

-Ahhh Bliss-

What i love most about the wish list is that everything can be so versatile. This wishlist might soon be purchased in a day or two because they are all absolutely gorgeous.

Let me know what your eyeing in River Island

Jewellery Heaven!

Hello again, the post is a day late oops...

But anyway, I have recently been like a magpie spotting and buying anything shiny and attractive that I can put in my nest (jewellery box) and treasure for ever. And over the past two weeks I have found these beautiful gems that I adore.

{Mickey Pearl Earrings £2.00, Long Gold Cross Earrings £2.00,Gold Spike Necklace £3.00}
Sister Vintage
{Black Skull Cross Earrings £1.50, Gold Hoops £3.50}
{Long Gold Chain Necklace £12.00}
River Island

When i was younger i used to be a lover in all things silver, they just seemed less in your face but then again what did i know back in secondary school days? But now my favorite buys are anything that can jazz up an outfit.

These few finds are so easy to pair up with an outfit whether it be casual or fancy, anything goes. But I am still on the hunt for more so if anyone knows of any places then don't be afraid to comment and remember I am a girl who indulges in cheap and cheerful finds that don't break the bank. 
Although these pieces may not be so unique like what I have found at vintage fairs I just couldn't put them down. I usually don't spend anything over £10 on fakes but sometimes I guess you have to make an exception depending on what it is!

Have you got any hidden beauty gems or found any goodies lately?
x Let me know, Enjoy your Sunday x
