Last weekend, my Glam squad, aka the babes over at Dollymixers, kindly invited me round for a full on pamper sesh. With a date at Pitch lined up, and a full on dependency for acrylics, I really couldn’t say yes quickly enough.
You will have seen me tweet in the past about my favorite salon/life-line, you know the place – shared it’s name with a Rihanna & JT song… Well, a quick scrub & spruce, and a new (top) coat of paint – and the brand new Dollymixers was born! The salon is brighter and fresher has has a chic homely feel to it. Or rather, has the look you wish your home had. I mean, if my living room had a blow dry bar, gel lamp and a team of fully trained staff – I’d pretty much be a recluse.
For those you you who’ve never visited, not only do Dollymixers offer; Nano, and Micro Ring Extensions, Cuts, Colours, Gorgeous Blow Drys, St Tropez Spray Tans, Pedi’s, Gel & Acrylic Mani’s – but possibly best of all, they offer you a glass of wine when you step through the door. It genuinely has all the perks of a bar, without the sleezy lads in scoop neck t’s. What’s not to love!
However, on this occasion, I was visiting early Saturday morning, and whilst I’m always keen to get the party started, I rather sensibly opted for a coffee instead (mature or wa?!)
The Hollywood style make-up station that even Marilyn would be proud of
Yes I had a head massage, and yes I almost fell asleep
How cute are the new foot soak tubs in the pedi-section?!
All the lush Orly & Fake Bake products on sale, with Invisibobble pick & mix

I dunno what it is about being pampered like, but it deffo increases your apetite! So, in the spirit of Galentines day, my bezzy Nina met me from the salon, & we headed over to Stag Coffee for a bite to eat, which btw, is another place on Crwys Road you should deffo check out!
I hope you all had a lush weekend and you were spoiled rotten too!
