It's a wrap!

As I'm creeping into my mid forties and the middle age spread is taking its toll, I know That I should be eating better, exercising more and of course drinking less alcohol... But where's the fun in that.... ?!

So, I decided to have my first ever inch loss wrap.....I know it's not forever but I was curious to see if and how it worked.  I rocked up to the salon in my bikini (obviously with clothes over the top whilst on the journey!) a sight rarely seen at the best of times, let alone now that I weigh more than I did when I was 9 months pregnant! But I knew it was for a good cause! 

Sharon explained that this was of course only a quick fix and not a permanent solution, tho it would be a boost to help get me motivated to live a healthier lifestyle.

We took my measurements (I could tell you but then I would have to kill you!) and Sharon proceeded to massage the inch loss gel into the offending areas.  This is a specially formulated aloe Vera and herbal gel that once wrapped helps to achieve fluid loss through lymphatic drainage. In the deeper layers of our skin lies the adipose tissue or fat cells around which fluid and toxins collect.  Normally this is discharged through the lymphatic system.  If these toxins and fluid are allowed to collect, the fat cells become compacted and cellulite will form (shudder..... We all hate the c word!), so I was happy to have a go at drawing out the all those nasty toxins before they became the c word!

Once the gel was applied, I was then tightly wrapped in cling film from the knee up.... Not a pretty sight!!

After being neatly wrapped up, I laid down on the couch and was covered in a blanket and told to relax for half hour.....well that was the plan, however we decided this was a great opportunity to wax my eyebrows and top lip....what a fantastc use of the time! You super busy ladies out there can multitask your treatments at the beauty salon! I did then have my little rest and enjoyed a warm and cosy power nap.  I'm not gonna lie, I may have looked pretty hideous but once I was cosied up, it was a lovely and warm feeling....and not as uncomfortable as it may seem!

Finally the time came for me to be cut out of my cling film cocoon, yes cut.... My fear of being spun out like someone's lunchtime Sarnie was thankfully not going to materialise!

And Then, the moment of truth... the scary yet exciting part..... Had it worked...was I on my way to my Kylie body?

My results...!

Upper arm - 0.5" loss per arm... Ok it's a start...
Waist - 1.5" loss... Excitement rising...
Thighs - 2" per thigh!!!!!!!!! Be gone with you cellulite!!

Total loss 6.5"!! That is the equivalent of a dress size! Not bad for a half hour lie down! Move over Kylie! (Well ok that's a bit far.... Not quite ready for the gold hot pants yet!)

Now I know it's not permanent, but believe me, if anything gives you motivation it's a head start like that! For anybody needing that little incentive back to a healthy lifestyle, it is most definitely recommended. Should you be invited out to a special function and suddenly realise that your favourite LBD is a tad too tight...this is just what you need pre party to get you back into it.

Again, remember this isn't a weight loss program it is an inch loss treatment and in order to keep off those inches a healthy, active lifestyle is imperative.  This is an amazing, relaxing treatment that can give you between a 3" & 9 " total loss immediately and therefore give you the morale boost we all sometimes need. (Not to mention the well deserved relaxation and me time!)

The inch wrap system is currently available at Heavenly Beauty for an introductory price of £35 per treatment. Call Sharon on 01329 663637 to book your ultimate inch loss treatment now!

Save The Blowdry Showercap....Your hair extensions best friend!

As a wearer of hair extensions and also a qualified hairstylist & extensionist, I definitely know the importance of a decent shower cap!  It is imperative in the fight to ensure the bonds of your hair extensions remain moisture free to avoid the breakdown of the tips and shedding.

Since wearing hair extensions, one of the big issues I have found is finding a shower cap that is big enough to cover all that hair!  Ill fitting shower caps mean moisture gets in and renders them pointless as far as protection goes!

My shower cap crisis has come to an end........!

No, I haven't stopped having extensions! I have discovered the Save The Blowdry Showercap! This revolutionary bathroom headwear is designed with a combination of a waterproof outer layer and an inner layer made from a super absorbent micro weave towelling which zaps humidity and condensation.  Combine this with the fact it's is extremely roomy with a comfortable flex grip to stop strands escaping it really does leave your crowning glory bathroom proofed!  

And...... it's also very pretty!!!!!

Save the Blowdry ticks all the boxes when it comes to helping the longevity of your hair extensions and I recommend it on both a personal and professional level!

All Change!

It's been a while!

So what has been happening???.....I got married!!!!

I married the gorgeous Matt Castle on October 24 2013...and it was a truly amazing day!

My husband and I!

Our family.... My girls and Matts boys all looking stunning!

As well as getting married ....I moved salons! I am now working in Stubbington, within a beauty salon, it is still my own private salon, but with the added benefit of being able to get other treatments too! As it is nearer to my home I am able to spend more time in the salon and less time sat on the M27!

I have also launched my "I dye, you Dry" Colour Bar concept, where as a quick fix between main appointments you can pop in and get your colour touched up and then dry it yourself and go, enabling you to top up that colour without a cut and without the mess of colouring it at home in a speedy time.... With prices starting from £15! Full prices can be found on my online booking system at

I also took a make up course and am now a qualified make up artist at VTCT level 2. I love doing make up and offer special occasion make up as well as individual or group make up lessons.  I also did a vintage make up and hair day with my lovely client Honor as my model and we chose to do an Audrey Hepburn look......

It was a lot of fun! We then had a play with a quirky 40's look.....

Will definitely be doing more of those...I also want to do a special effects make up this space!

So what is new for 2014, there are still things to be done in the salon, some new furniture etc., In February I hope to train in La Brasiliana Blow Dry...if you haven't heard of it, it is a smoothing process which rids you of frizz and gives u the same look as if straighteners have been used.... But every day for about 4 months...imagine straightening for 4 much extra time in bed would you gain?!

I am also planning on doing a weave extensions course, not my preferred method but a lot of people do ask for it and possibly a body wrap course.....and that's just a start!

So keep in touch, watch the Facebook page ( and the website ( as well as this blog to keep up to date...I will also be looking for models for the training courses and possibly a a photo shoot!

Stay gorgeous!
