Valentines Weekend

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentines weekend.

Chris and I decided no cards or presents this year but that we would just go out for a nice meal.  We booked a table at Lockards Farm.  I have heard mixed reviews about it, but we had a lovely evening.  The service was a bit slow, but the girl who was serving us was lovely so we couldn’t complain.

Now I’m looking forward to a busy week at work.  Loads of lash top-ups this week, but there’s still space if you want to book in.  Either Classic Semi-Permanent Lash Extensions or Russian Volume Semi-Permanent Eyelash Extensions.  If you’re undecided why not head over to my facebook page for some more information: https://www.facebook.com/AdoreNailsandLashes

 

Stobo

OMG I went to Stobo for the first time a couple of weeks ago.  It was a last minute thing, as someone in my friends group had dropped out.  I had the most amazing time!  I’m not going to lie, I looked at the prices etc and thought they were pretty steep, but from the moment I arrived it was pure luxury.  We stayed for two nights which was just perfect.  I don’t think I would want to go for any less time, but equally I think 3 nights would have been too long – I would have felt a lot more guilty for being away from my boys.

We had lunch on arrival instead of departure as we had to leave sharp on the Wednesday to get back for School pick ups.  The food was so good, 3 course meals for lunch and dinner (the portion sizes were pretty big), and the breakfast was hot and cold buffet style.

As I went last minute I never had time to book any treatments – they need to be booked about 10 days in advance.  But when I got there there was a sign up to say there were spaces available for a sports massage, which was top of my want list!!  We relaxed in the outdoor hot tubs, the sauna, steam rooms, lazed by the pool after a swim, we even took our adult colouring books!  We tried to read our books, but we got too carried away chatting to each other.

We had such a fab time and I would love to go back sometime, the time went so fast, but it was nice to get home to see my boys.  J was so happy to see me when I picked him up from School. 🙂

 

Oh! I almost forgot, the Ladies Rest Room…….Well! There was a menu telling you what to do – I will only say two words “Lady Wash”

Russian Volume Lashes

I have recently trained in Russian Volume Semi-Permanent Eyelash Extensions.  Instead of applying 1 extension to 1 isolated natural lash, I use lighter extensions and make a fan with 2-6 extensions and apply the fan to 1 isolated natural lash all using the same dip of glue.

Because lighter lash extensions are used in volume in can make the lashes look more natural and fluffy, however a much more glam effect can also be created.
