My hair history....

Hi guys :)
I thought i would take you through my hair history as i got blonder and blonder then from blonde to brown a million times...ok that maybe a bit of exaggeration but youl see. I love seeing these types of posts so thought i would share mine with you :).
The first two were taken in 2005 in my last year at high school i had been getting high lights for a while but i think this is around the time that you can really see and i cant find any earlyer pictures on my computer lol.


Then here is 2006 when it starts to get blonder and i wore extensions alot, glued in ones aswell, not good i would not recommend and would NEVER have them again! It hurt so much trying to get them out and half my hair came out with them. I have worn clip-in ones since.

2007 (september)
This was taken when we went to butlins in skegness for my birthday (30th september). I cant belive how much weight i put on in a year!
2007 (sometime between october and december.
I noticed while looking through my picture my hair got a lot blonder as i lost weight.
I think i lost 2and a half1-2 stone between my birthday pics (30th sept)and christmas.

2007 new years eve.
Christmas time :) very happy and blonde :)

2008 jan-feb
This is a few days after i found out i was pregnant i decided to finally go dark i had been thinking about it for a while and this was the decider.I didnt want to put bleach on my head all the time while pregnant so i went for it.So scary!!
Half way through and still rocking the brown with little jake in my belly :)

Our yearly trip to isle of wight (jason has family there) as you can see here i was missing the blonde and had a few highlights.(after looking on the internet alot and finding it isnt as bad as dyeing your full head as when bleaching the product does touch you scalp).

2008 august day before sisters wedding around 34weeks pregnant.
And here with my hugeee baby belly i when a bit lighter it was summer and my sister was getting marryed :).

2008 somtime between oct and december.
I went dark again! Its was easyer especially having a newborn to look after i didnt think about my hair for a while.

August 2009 jasons mums wedding abput 35-36 weeks pregnant.
Few highlights again-no extentions! pregnancy worked miricals for my hair lol.
Cringe!!hate this picture!

2009 December

Around may i think, summers coming and i miss blonde!

My Christmas nails :)

As soon as i saw this nail polish i knew i had to have it to where through christmas.
Its red, green and sliver colour and its glitter!
What says christmas more than that.
The colour is Party hearty my china glaze.

This is my first nail polish i have got from China glaze and as i have seen so many reviews about them floating around on blogger/YT i was really excited to add it to my little collection :).
I picked this one up from ebay.

As the polish itself is just glitter i decided to as white under it so show the colours more.

I used Barry M as a base coat,
Sinful.. confession
and China glaze Party Hearty :)

Would you like to feature on my blog?

I’m 18 and from London. I only started blogging one month ago and I love it so much already, I’ve been welcomed into the blogging world by everyone and I love the comments I get. I have a lovely boyfriend who I’ve been with for two years, and my dream job would involve beauty and PR. :)

1. Whats your top 5 must have beauty items?
My top five are; a decent foundation (it makes all the difference if it works, it is something I will always be willing to pay a lot for); mascara (I love any that increase volume); lip balm (nothing worse than dry lips, especially in winter!); nail polish (I hate having bare nails, I feel naked); and eyeliner (I feel lost when I don’t have any on, I look scary)

2.What things do you use everyday with out fail?
The Body Shop Seaweed Facial Exfoliator
The Body Shop Seaweed Day Cream
The Body Shop Seaweed Night Cream (big fan of this range as you can tell!)
Garnier Soft Essentials Make Up Wipes
3.Whats your favourite makeup brand?
At the moment, I would say Barry M as I just love the variety of colours. Once my finance budget increases I’m sure it will change to MAC. :)

4.I love fake tan, whats your favourite brand (if you wear it) and why?
I use Johnsons Holiday Skin body lotion, which gives you a natural glow. I put it on every day and I can see a huge difference.

5.What has been your favourite nail colour/brand for this season?
Up until last week it was Barry M, but then I discovered Models Own and I’ve fallen in love. My favourite colour is Nude Beige.

6.How would you describe your fashion style?
I think I would describe it as casual, I love matching simple bottoms with a nice top. I always make an effort with what I wear.

7.Which celebritys style do you love?I love Mollie from The Saturdays, she always looks great, and most of her clothes are from the high street, so it’s great to find similar buys.

8.What has been your favourite beauty or fashion trend this season?
I think it has to be all the warm colours. I admit, I love summer, but this Autumn I am so excited to buy brown and grey things. :)

9. What are 3 random facts about you?
Erm, I am in a long distance relationship. My boyfriend lives in Portsmouth and I see him on weekends. I have a Chihuahua who is adorable .

What you can expect to see at Away with the fairies

As you know, I recently bought Models Own Nude Beige so here’s a photograph

I adore this colour, I thought it would be similar to Barry M mushroom (see the review here) but it is much much lighter, and I prefer it as it is more natural.
It was very easy to apply and only needed one coat (but again, I applied two) and it did not chip at all.
I would honestly rate this ten out of ten. Models Own nail polishes cost £5 and you can purchase them here.
Please excuse the short nails, I started biting them again and have now resorted to putting on false nails so they grow! :)
What is your favourite Models Own nail polish colour?

About who is she???

Hey my name Ray aka Who is She, I’m 25, and I come from Durham. I find the simplest of things amusing and at times don't make any sense.. you're about to find this out for yourself haha.


1. Whats your top 5 must have beauty items?
1- Lipstick- any nudes/pinks from Mac make me happy
2- Crest Whitening Strips. I use these once or twice a month to brighten my smile.
3- Mascara- I like the spider eyes look.
4- Bronzer. Mac Refined Golden is my holy grail of bronzers. My motto is “how bronzed is too bronze?” haha
5- Black Eyeliner- the thicker the better. I’ve just about mastered the hang of doing flicks J I use Mac Fluidline in Black track and a small angled brush.

2.What things do you use everyday with out fail?

Hmmm this is a bit of a toughie- I always moisturise my skin. I use Hawaiian Tropic body butter, and then Johnson and Johnson Hydrating Cream on my face. Wear Mascara/Bronzer/Mac Eyeshadow in Shroom- I don’t like to wear too much make up to work, but these are my staples. Wear perfume- my favs atm are Prada, Chanel Chance, Victor and Rolf Flowerbomb.

3.Whats your favourite makeup brand?
Mac is by far my favourite make up brand, to some it may be pricey however I believe you get your money worth and it lasts. Although sometimes I think the make up brushes can be a bit over priced *cough- blush brush* I love the wide variation of products which they do, and the fact that their products are so pigmented anyone regardless of their skin tone/colour can wear their products and look good. I swear by their blacks and greys for a smoky eye, and their nude/pink lipsticks/glosses (my all time favourite is Plink!).

4.I love fake tan, whats your favourite brand (if you wear it) and why?
I am obsessed with being tanned- the browner (not orange) the better. I swear by St Tropez Self Tan Mousse, as it doesn’t streak and lasts quite a while. I get the large bottle from ebay normally for £15 (shop around to get a bargain). A tip to keep your tan in longer is to keep moisturising- I swear by Hawaiian Tropic body butter- this keeps your fake (and real) tan in for longer, and it smells just like holidays.

5.What has been your favourite nail colour/brand for this season?
Best brands has to be Models Own and Barry M- depending on what colour I want to wear this dictates which brand I use. Eg baby pink- Barry M is better than MO, MO Black is better than Barry M’s. Favourite colours at the moment- Mushroom and Flamigno Pink by Barry M and Misty Grey and Nude Beige from MO. However you can never go wrong with Black nails.

6.How would you describe your fashion style?
Its hard to describe-its a mish mash of high street and designer- I can be a Topshop clone at times. I wear head to toe primark for work. Ultimately I believe that accessories make an outfit- be a ring, a bag, or a pair of shoes. My go to items are gold bangles (I am obsessed with ghetto gold) and lots of rings.

7.Which celebritys style do you love?
Rasin face aka Rachel Zoe. Who else can wear flared jeans, a fur gillet, oversized sunglasses and a statement panther ring and look good? Erm not me. I also love Khloe Kardashian, as she shows that being tall you can still wear 6” heels and look fab.

8.What has been your favourite beauty or fashion trend this season?
As long as your happy and comfortable in what you wear and you love it and feel good- that is fashion. You dictate fashion. For me at this time of year is a leather bomber jacket- dress it up or down, it always looks good and Animal Print.

9. What are 3 random facts about you?
· I am too tall- I’m 5’ 10” in flats and I have shrinking feet. I used to be a size 9 now I am an 8. This is the one good thing about getting older.
· I nearly had a fight with a granny when I went to see Take That last year at the Stadium of Light- she was walking too slow haha.
· I am quite intelligent, however I have no common sense at all.

Heres what you can expect to see at who is she???

Unleash your inner Bet Lynch…

Autumn/Winter is my favourite time of year for fashion (excluding the rubbish weather of course)- why… two words…


I honestly can’t get enough of the stuff- be it shirts, ballet pumps, boots, tees, jackets, underwear the more the better. These are my favourites off the High Street- however a word of warning… under no circumstances will you EVER wear animal print with white heels. That is a major fashion no no. Wear dresses with blazers, shirts with jeans and a bomber jacket, brighten up a plan black outfit with some killer heels- the list is endless.

Topshop Vintage Faux Fur Jacket £98
Topshop Dress £45
KG Ellison Boots £150
Reiss Blouse £59
Whistles Chevron Dress £150
Louis Vuitton Scarf £455

Mighty roar or a grrr anyone?? xx

About vipxo
Im 21 and im starting my final year as BA fashion design and production student. I live with my boyfriend in a small apartment outside of Leeds. I like bubble baths, cups of tea and orange chocolate! Im a real bargin hunter, and thinks Topshop is really overrated!


1. Whats your top 5 must have beauty items?

The most important thing to have is make up wipes, i can't live without them. I use them all the time, i find them so refreshing.
A good foundation, i hate girls who have the massive orange lines on the side of their face. I got mine from Clinique after a consultation.
Eye lash curler, they make such a difference.
Vaseline, because nothing else is better for keeping smoochy lips.
Hair clips, i always carry a few around in my bag incase you have an emergency

2.What things do you use everyday with out fail?
Im not an everyday make up person, but i always try to curl my lashes and put some colour on my cheeks.

3.Whats your favourite makeup brand?
Barry M! I've been buying their glitter dust for ages, i love the variety of colours they offer! The nail polishes are lush too!

4.I love fake tan, whats your favourite brand (if you wear it) and why?
I've never used fake tan.

5.What has been your favourite nail colour/brand for this season?
Im loving the mushroom/brown colours.

6.How would you describe your fashion style?
Im still wearing things i wore 3 years ago, i don't like to wear the same as everyone else. So i'll wear it a few months later.

7.Which celebritys style do you love?
Im not one for following celebs, they have the money to look amazing 24/7 which is just not realistic. But i love the quirkiness of Gizzi Erskine

8.What has been your favourite beauty or fashion trend this season?
Im obsessed with coats/capes! Im seriously lusting over cream coloured ones.

 at the moment my hello kitty bag has a tester for the eva perfume by benefit, a cheapy new look lipstick that adds just a bit of colour and lightens my lips, mac myth and benefit lip gloss in life on the a list.
 in my bigger bag i have a chanel compact mirror that comes in a little pouch to keep it clean, a comb, shine eraser papers by elf, a mini benefit bad gal lash mascara, a mini UDPP that i got in my naked pallet, a mac lip conditioner in petting pink and a mac blot powder in medium.
