So yesterday my sister and I decided to have a girly day and a special treat I booked for us to have our eyebrows done at a local salon called Shine Hair and Beauty. I have never had my eyebrows tinted before and they haven't been waxed in over two years *gulp* so I was actually really nervous.
As soon as we entered the salon we were greeted warmly by Nicola, who I recognised from doing my nails in March last year. I hadn't been to the salon since it moved premises and I was taken aback by how gorgeous the décor was inside, I simply had to take some pictures (which confused the ladies working there until I explained it was for my blog!)

I was amazed at how hot the wax was. I'm not quite sure what I was expecting, but it took me by surprise all the same. I felt truly pampered laying there allowing Nicola to work her magic on my previously Chewbacca-esque eyebrows.
Naturally both mine and my sister's eyebrows are quite light, so it was really lovely to have them tinted to properly match my natural hair colour (I need to remind myself to dye my hair soon as my roots are becoming pretty prominent...)

We had a really nice time at the salon and it was lovely to spend some proper time with my sister, as she is at school until 5pm every day and is always out and about at weekends. She had asked to spend more time with me so this half term was the perfect opportunity.
I took a quick before and after picture showing how tragic my brows were before and how fabulous Nicola had managed to make them. I now feel so much more confident taking selfies knowing my brows are totally 'fleeking', as my sister would say. I am aware of the slight resting bitch face on the after photo, it adds a touch of sass I think *smirk*

After having our eyebrows done, we went to the pub for a spot of lunch (I made that sound really posh, but in reality I had bangers and mash) then being the crafty bitches that we are, we went to Superdrug and used the foundation testers to cover the red patches on our foreheads left by waxing. I also bought some Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for £1.99 as I have been desperate to try it after seeing it advertised in Cosmopolitan magazine.
Our next port of call was Homebargains to buy some popcorn for the film we were watching later in the evening. After previously trying Homebargains' own brand and finding it almost inedible, we decided to try the Despicable Me Minions version! I am hardly the world's biggest fan of minions, finding them rather annoying, but even Minions popcorn is better than nothing.
Being the shopaholic that I am, I couldn't resist buying some pretty notebooks for 99p and 59p each. Don't judge me, they're for blog ideas and they also make gorgeous props.

How do you enjoy a girly day?
Any other sisters out there?
