GoldCrush Hair Vitamins – Week Two Update

Hello my Doves!

If you are subbed to me on YouTube, you’ll probably see that I have started the GoldCrush Hair vitamins trial. I have been supplied with two months worth of capsules and I’m looking forward to seeing if I have any noticeable results during that time period!

I started taking them on the 24th January (Saturday) and I am now two weeks into my trial. So far, I haven’t noticed any side effects of the vitamins at all. I did get a few more spots within the first week of use, however this coincided with my period, so I think its more likely that it was just hormonal spots as I get them every month lasting for a few days.

I was inspired to write this post the second she posted her cover shoot photo for Love magazine on her Instagram account.

If you had asked me whether I would have ever admired “blackface” being used in fashion, the answer would have course have been a solid HELL NO! Due to the oppressive history behind “blacking up”, I am personally of the opinion that it has no place in the modern world!

Pretty Hurts…..So Why Do We Let It?

The beauty world isn’t anyone’s friend.

It’s structured so that none of us will ever really attain the standards of beauty. Even the models we see in the magazines aren’t real.

One minute you’re tall, blonde, blue eyed, skinny, big busted and labelled as gorgeous….the next….you need to be brunette, dark eyed and olive skinned with a rump like Kim Kardashian to be pretty.

None of us can ever win. The whole aim is that we’re always striving to be something that we aren’t, so we’ll always pay for someone or something to alter our appearance. Make-up. Weaves. Wigs. Sun beds. Skin bleaching. Butt job. Nose job. Boob job. Liposuction. Lip Fillers. Push Up Bras. Padded Knickers.
