New Nail Releases 2013!

Image
Nail art is something that has sky rocketed in popularity over the last 3 years or so. With so many new innovations and DIY kits to create stunning nail looks at home it's no wonder that companies are constantly looking to release the next big thing for your finger tips! It wasn't long ago that we saw the introduction of the 'Caviar Manicure'and more recently the'Chalkboard Manicure', but here is a round up of some of the latest nail polish picks to hit the shelves soon that we are ever so excited about:

From sequins to denim, there seems to be a mixture of trends which are flooding the nail art world for 2013. The new denim effect nail varnish fromBad Apple Cosmetics is a lovely denim blue shade with a hint of shimmer, which will be well up to date with the 90's come back in fashion which seems to be happening right now. We can just picture it - our Lady Boys of Bangkok rockin' the dungaree's with jellie sandals and denim nails! In a slightly more…

Since the Lady Boys of Bangkok hit UK soil it's been an absolute whirlwind of shows and performances - enough to make your head spin (right round, baby right round, like a record baby). The opening events in Derby went down a storm, and included a guest appearance from the Mayor of Derby herself; Lisa Higginbottom! Which you can read all about here. The Sabai Pavilion was as lavish as ever, with the usual welcoming atmosphere and electric ambience! TheLadyBoysare currently doing a small bout of theatre dates before their triumphant return to Bristol this Friday where the Glamorous Amorous tour continues at Castle Park. Glamorous Amorous will be situated in the purpose built Sabai Pavilion from Friday 19th April until the 27th! A short but sweet stop indeed.

Image
If you weren't already aware, theLadyboys of Bangkok take their appearance very seriously. They are always playing with the latest make up brands and trying out the latest trends. Despite wearing a wonderful array of wigs and hair pieces throughout some of the acts, the Lady Boys like to show off their natural locks as much as possible!

The Macadamia Natural Oil Range is a selection of those products which the Lady Boys now simply cannot put down! From root to tip, start to finish, there is a perfect product to keep hair in top condition.

Happy Songkran 2013!

Image
Songkran is the annual celebration of New Year in Thailand. Meaning 'astrological passage'. It is the time of the year when traditions reign supreme in Thailand, with many Thai people taking part in the festivities. Celebrated from the 13th to the 16th of April annually, celebrations include travelling back to their home towns to celebrate with elders and the more hands on activity of taking part in the water fights around the streets Thailand! The most famous area of Thailand to celebrate the new year is the largest  and most cultural Northern City, Chiang Mai. Hosting many festivals throughout the calender year, Chiang Mai is renowned for being one of the most popular locations of celebration in the country. Lasting up to 6 days in Chiang Mai, it's no wonder that natives and tourists alike travel to the region to take part in the massive water fight that takes place. The traditional greeting is "สวัสดีปีใหม่" (sawatdi pi mai) which basically translates to "…

Bearded lady Mariam, from Germany....

Image
If there's one thing the Lady Boys of Bangkok know about, it's about feeling and being different from everyone else. And this is why we have now got a new icon in our lives.... Bearded lady Mariam, from Germany, who has never felt sexier in the 28 years since sprouting her facial hair after the birth of her son in 1985. On 'This Morning' Mariam tells Holly Willoughby all about her experiences with the decades of plucking and preening her 'goatee' and how she has now finally embraced her new look - never feeling more confident! In 2008 Mariam decided to let nature take over and now this admirable lady makes a living from her new found follicles of confidence by travelling the world as part of festivals; even taking part in a Circus show as the bearded lady! 
As with anything or anyone who decides to break from the 'norm' Mariam's journey has not been an easy one. Receiving horrible and cruel comments about her appearance is something that unfortunat…

A Millie Mackintosh Inspired Golden Glow

Image
The new series of Made in Chelseahit the small screens last night, and it was just as explosive and action packed as ever (we say action packed, but about as action packed as long awkward pauses and looks between sentences can be). Twitter users whipped up a storm, Spencer getting the brunt of the drama whilst many others simply seeked a golden glowing complexion like super babe Mille Mackintosh.So today, in honour of Millie, we are showing you a collection of our favourite products to create that beautiful golden glow! 
Getting that golden glow isn't about looking bronzed or tanned. It's more about achieving that beautiful healthy gold hue to your skin. Many highlighters are more of a light pink shimmer rather than this 'perfect for summer' gold colour in the above products. The Giordani Gold Make Up Basefrom Oriflame is the perfect primer ready to prep your skin for foundation. It works from beneath to create a lovely dewy finish creating a slight richness to your c…

China Wish List - Top 10 Tourist Attractions

Image
Even though the sun is just beginning to appear in the UK we're still thinking about jetting off for a holiday. After blogging about the Handou Panda Hotel we started to contemplate a taking a trip to China and have compiled a list of the 10 things we'd really like to see there;
The Great Wall of China
Obviously a trip to China wouldn't be complete unless you paid a visit to The Great Wall, one of the seven wonders of the world, but did you know after you've studied the cultural history you can opt to toboggan down it!

Wangfujing Street
Wangfujing provides the best Chinese shopping experience by combining high end malls with the bustle of a flea market. The street vendors offer a wide array of authentic food; if you've ever wanted to eat a scorpion on a stick, this is the place to do it! You can also sample snake, starfish and spiders.

Pandas! There are two sanctuaries where you can pay a visit to see the giant bears in their natural habitat. You can also have a cudd…
