Braun Silk-épil 9 // #BreakFree...

Seeing as summer is just around the corner I thought this post fitted in quite nicely as I don't know about you guys but right now my legs are no where near summer ready. Well that was until I used the new Braun Silk-épil 9. I was sent this to review and I must say I was a bit sceptical as my previous experiences with an epilator has not been great but this one has converted me. 

Like most people I am sure, I normally just shave my legs and it is normally done is a rush so that without meaning to I am still left with hairy knees 9 times out of 10 (what a lovely thought) but in all honestly I would say I was no shaving expert. I think that is why I love the  Braun Silk-épil 9 because it makes hair removal so easy and my finished results made my legs feel like I had just had a professional wax at a salon. 

In the Braun Silk-épil 9 box you get:

  • Silk-épil 9 
  • Exfoliation brush head (incl. protection cap) 
  • Shaver head 
  • Trimmer cap 
  • Facial cap 
  • Skin contact cap 
  • Pouch 
  • Electric cord 
  • Cleaning brush

When I tired it out I used the skin contact cap as this I felt gave me a better result on my legs and the exfoliation brush which I was so surprised how soft it made my legs. Its not until you use a product like this that you realise how dry your legs actual were!

I am not going to lie when I first started using it there was a little bit of discomfort but I wouldn't say it was painful. After using it for a while the pain went away and it does say that the more you use it the less you will feel it. It also says that if you are a first time user of an epilator that you may experience slight pain at first but that will subside after continued use.

You may be wondering what exactly an epilator actually is but it basically removes hair by mechanically grasping multiple hairs simultaneously and pulling them out. The way in which epilators pull out hair is similar to waxing so you get extra smooth results.

The only real downside to the Braun Silk-épil 9 is that to do both your legs it does take much longer than shaving. I would say I spent about 15 mins in my bathroom doing it however that did include exfoliating my legs with the exfoliating brush as well. I am also a bit of a perfectionist so I didn't want to miss a single hair and actually I quite enjoyed giving myself a little pampering session in the process, it gave me a good excuse to take some time out and give my legs some much needed TLC!

A day in the life // Lunch with Bollare...

Time for another day in life post as you guys seemed to love the idea of doing them more often and I love sharing them with you. I headed to London today to catch up with the lovely girls at Motel Rocks and grab some new bits for my summer wardrobe. After that myself and Lucy headed to lunch with American PR company Bollare. It was held at Bourne and Hollingsworth Buildings which I would definitely recommend if you are looking to try somewhere new in London to eat. The decor was so beautiful, perfect for bloggers as we definitely appreciate an Instagram'able restaurant.

In the bag...

I just want to start off by saying thanks so much to all of you who helped me with my photo dilemma, it is now all sorted! In future I will definitely be asking you guys any of my technological questions seeing as it is really is not my strong point, some days I even wonder how I run a blog!

Many of you have been asking about this Steve Madden bag and where you can buy it, I however purchased this when I was in Dallas so I am not sure if it is available to buy in the UK however I will keep my eye out for you all.

A day in the life...

Hey guys, something a little different today. I have decided that along with my outfit posts I am going to do some more 'day in the life' style posts on my blog every so often just to bring in some fresh content. Please leave me comment if you think this is a good idea or not, I would love to get your feedback. 

Today I had a few meetings in London, one of which was a trip to Kurt Giegers head office but I will get those amazing shoe pics up tomorrow! I then headed to the New Look AW15 press day with Lucy and of course had to fit in our fave Yo Sushi! I have linked the details to my outfit I wore today below 

Also I wonder if you guys can help me, I am currently having a problem when I upload my photos onto my blog... they go all blurry? However the image on my commuter in clear and when you click on the actual image on my blog its clear. Any ideas?
