Style Notes
: It was a warm and humid day, so something light weight and summery was definitely what  I had in mind. I recently picked up this cute summer dress with Christening and wedding season around the corner. But when this event came up it felt like the perfect choice. I’m not normally a girl who likes to wear pink but little touches of it like in this floral print dress can be very elegant and pretty.

Semi permanent make up (Tattooed make up) has been around for quite some time now.

However if like me you have seen your fair share of dodgy looking facial slugs when Googling images of semi permanent brows?  Then it’s fair to say the reality of how they turned out wasn’t quite what your imagination had in mind! 

I am one of those women who doesn’t feel she could possibly attend anything other than the gym with out a full brow in place. So with that in mind getting my “brows done” is something that has been on my hit list for many years. I’ve been literally dreaming about the amount of time I would save by waking up in the morning  with my brows already done! However being that I’m an over the top perfectionist, finding an equally over the top perfectionist like myself was the challenge I had ahead! 

Fast forward 5 years… I recently bumped into two friends; on separate occasions I might add that had FANTASTIC looking brows. I’m talking shape on point, extra special arch, even colour, no sparse sections and groomed to perfection. So obviously I had to comment “Wow your brows look amazing babe”. Both women credited there brows not only to semi permanent make up… but also to the very same practitioner – Sian Dellar! 

That was it ! Hey presto I’d found her… too capture my attention not once but twice I wanted a piece of the Sian Dellar pie! 

Making an appointment is easy she has an online booking system and a fabulous receptionist Jaya who is friendly and informative. She is based on the famous Harley Street in London so the perfect location just a 5 minute walk from Oxford Circus station.

The clinic its self was lovely, it was decorated white and spotlessly clean and Sian was so welcoming and friendly. 




Needless to say I was rather anxious, I’m a person who has never even let anyone else pluck , wax or tint her eyebrows let alone tattoo them! #ControlFreak

Sian took her time in discussing the shape I wanted and she even asked me to show her images of how I would usually apply my eyebrow make up.

She then went on to design my brows using a brow pencil and a measuring tool, tweeking the shape upon my minor adjustments. Sian made clear she would adjust as many times as I wanted as she wanted me to “Love my brows not Like my brows”. I loved the fact that she was clearly so keen for me to be happy and for my brows to be perfect. 

The procedure itself took around 1 hour. The first thing Sian does is put on a gentle numbing lotion on the area to take the edge off the discomfort when she does the outline. Once the shape is in place she then she begins to apply all of the individual hair strokes using the micro blade tool and MicroBlading technique. This does feel quite scratchy and sharp at times but the additional numbing cream she applied did work wonders.


 
I have to admit I was so nervous before getting this treatment. I would tell anyone considering getting semi permanent make up of any kind to remember if you have your procedure with someone  good at there job then the results can be absolutely incredible, so pick wisely. I am absolutely blown away by the precision of  Sian’s treatments and her professional manner, I also don’t think my eyebrows have ever looked so good. Sian also gives you a follow up treatment to fill in any areas that flake away reducing the pigment during the healing process. So this is most definitely a two step treatment. I am so excited to wake up every morning with my eyebrows already done, I am off to Mykonos on holiday in three weeks and these new brows are most definitely the best beach accessory I’ve ever taken away with me! Permanently perfect eyebrows.

I heard that Dr Mike Comins was the very best in dealing with fat removal and reduction and like most women who are body conscious, I of course have a list as long as my arm of things I would like to tweak and improve! Most of the things on this silly list I know are completely irrational and can probably be tackled with an even healthier eating plan and some extra personal training sessions and others are a little less easy to fix! Hans Place Practice is a clinic based in Knightbridge London that offers Vaser Liposuction, Anti wrinkle injections, Dermal Fillers, Facial Peels, Aqualix, lymphatic drainage massage, Velashape to name just a few of what they have to offer.

Insert my obsession with my knees! Yes I said it my knees 🙈.

Now I don’t know if you have ever tried to work out or loose weight on your knee’s, but let me tell you short of loosing enough body weight that the only place left in your body for the fat to now melt from is your knees ( No I don’t fancy becoming a skinny bobble head I do appreciate my curves ) there isn’t much you can do about knee chubb!

So I booked an appointment with Dr Mike Comins at Hans Place Practice in Knightbridge to have a consultation and see what he could suggest on my quest for  skinny knee’s! 


Dr Mike Comins owner of Hans Place Practice & fat removal expert.

Dr Mike and his staff were so lovely and friendly and instantly put me a ease. They are a young fun bunch who aim to please. 

During  my consultation Dr Mike who is often praised for his moral code of practice,  double checked that I was a healthy woman who had tried other methods of weight loss ie: exercises and diet first before coming to him. Only then was he happy to let me try the relatively new to the market and innovative Aqualix injections.

What is Aqualix? 

Aqualyx is a fat dissolving procedure that helps to dissolve stubborn fat simply by injection so it is much less invasive than having surgery. Sometimes stubborn areas of fat can be resistant to regular exercise and a healthy controlled diet.Even a drastic diet and high intensity exercise can sometimes fail to shrink areas of fatty deposits. This is because of the way that our fat cells are structured in certain areas of our bodies. The body naturally stores fat so that it can be used to release energy when required, but it doesn’t mean it is always evenly distributed around our bodies. 

What about the medical stuff? 

The body produces desoxycholan-acid; this is a bile acid which is made in the liver and helps the digestion of fat. Aqualyx contains this bile acid and its fat dissolving properties are utilised in this treatment making fat dissolving possible. 

Aqualyx  has the power to lock onto the the fat cell to make it unstable and weak. This then releases the content of fatty acid inside the cell itself. Next the body then uses up the fatty acid as energy and removes the cell residue in its normal way. It’s almost like a detoxing process. 

What areas can you treat? 

Aqualyx can be used on the entire body, but is only recommended by Dr Mike for use on smaller area’s . 

Areas include:

Double chin

Pre jowl sulcus

Upper arms

Arm pits

Waist

Hips

Saddle bags

Knees

Fat depots on buttocks, chest and inner thighs

What happens during Treatment?

The treatment takes place in his office on a treatment couch, Hans Place Practice does have a newley installed state of the art theatre on there lower ground floor for all more invasive surgery. It was so quick and easy, it was also unexpectedly & relatively painless to be honest. The needle is rather long so if you are needle phobic it maybe isn’t the treatment for you. But it was over in 5 minutes and practically painless. 

So what happens post treatment?

Post treatment you can expect tingling, plenty of redness and swelling, itching along with a little discomfort. The idea is that the Aqualix swells your fat cells until they effectuvely burst and expel naturally through the body. Results are permanent and you can expect to see results after 2-3 treatments administered 4-6 weeks apart.There is no downtime following treatment. You should avoid extreme heat and avoid strenuous exercise for the next seven days. As the fatty acids are being released it is essential to maintain a healthy diet as alternative fat depots in the body may be used to store the fat.

Check back in over the next few months to check out my results!

Check out my style at the launch of NudeStix make up launch UK.

Event: The launch of NudeStix make up collection.

Location: The Light Box

Goodie Bag: Nudestix, Tweexy, Coffee Scrub, Can water, Proper corn.

Celeb Watch: Pascal Craymer, Casey Batchlor, Arielle Free, Kat Shoob, Cally & Lewis (Love Island), Gemma Oaten.

Event Highlight: Meeting the gorgeous and adorable owner of Nudestix, a mother daughter team from Toronto, Canada. Discovering an amazing make up brand for quick and easy natural make up looks.

What am I wearing?  Dress by Rare London, Shoes by Miss Selfridge, Clutch by Ecco.

Style Notes: Being a girly make up launch I knew it would be a glam affair, so it was 100% a party dress occasion. Navy is such a cute colour and I think it just about suits everyone. Weather you are porcelain, olive or black skinned navy looks warm and flattering. The gold button detail and the cleavage cut out on this flattering dress by Rare London makes this otherwise simple body con dress stand out from the crowd.  The amazing structure and support around the breast area could comfortably support a lady with a much fuller cup size than mine so ladies usually afraid of going bra-less fear not with this dress. I also loved the material as it was thick enough to add support to my curves. 10/10 for this dress from me.
