Tape Me Up, Im a RockDoc!

I`ve recently been on a sports kinesiology taping course and I cannot wait to use it on my clients. I first spotted this taping at the Olympics and on Rafael Nadals leg at Wimbledon. I then happened to suffer a shoulder sprain and decided to give it a go. It didn`t erase my injury but it certainly helped me continue training and eased the pressure I felt on my joint and muscles.
Theres a massive amount involved in this, so I`ll keep this post generic for now and post individual reports on different techniques and problems as we go along in the future. I discovered that it can even be used over a pregnant ladies tummy, to help offload some of the extra weight and strain.

After much research, I chose Rocktape, as its the leader in the industry and the quality of its tape is unrivalled. Let the taping begin!

Twilly Good Fun

I also absolutely LOVE "For the Twill of it" , its like a peacock two toned petrol like polish and I`ve got it on order!! I`m putting my money on this one as flying in winter.

Christmas Nail Sparkle

Just started exploring whats out there for christmas this year. Whats going to be big in the nail sector?
I really like the Essie Lux Effects range. Theres dramatic colours such as blue and red to choose from, or a more subtle gold and silver. I think the silver would even work really well for winter brides. Just going to try and persuade one of my brides this year to try it!

Geeky fitness!

I wouldnt say I`m a techie, but I do like my gadgets.
It was my birthday recently and I received a brilliant gadget that has me hooked.
I`m really into healthy living right now and understanding how my body is reacting to different foods and different types of exercise.

Its the Nike fuel band, which can be purchased at Apple stores, and no doubt on line. £145.FUEL BAND VIDEO

Its a funky wristband type bracelet, in black, opaque or green, in various size, with spacers too.

To set it up on my laptop took a simple 5 minutes, even I managed not to get confused or mess it up!
Then I downloaded the app on my iphone, synced it up and away I went!

You can select what level of fuel you want to burn up each day - inactive, active etc etc. And basically you just get on with it!
It tells oyu all sorts of things, Im still learning now what it can tell me! Steps taken, calories burnt, how far off you are from your target. Theres graphs on there, comparisons by day, week or month.

Theres even a really funny man that jumps up and down when you achieve a goal.

I`ve found it really good that if I`ve had a lazy day in the office, it makes me get up and move!! Its also been really useful in showing me what types of exercise are actually more effective for me.

I`ve been doing quite a few eyelash extensions really and I remembered one client that I helped out a few months ago, when she damaged her lashes. I can get you thick glamourous lashes, or a more natural finish if you`d like. And dont make any judgements about age, they are not just for the younger client. They are amazing at making sparse and thin lashes come back to life again. x

wedding styling

Wedding styling at OMG is really popular. We also do a lot of prom hair, makeup and nails. Its wonderful being part of someones special occasion. Heres a montage of a wedding photoshoot we were involved in recently and one of the brides styled.

Tonights The Night

We are really delighted with the introduction of Sienna X at OMG.  Its a really handy spray tan to have in, as it develops within a couple of hours, so it helps us with our Thursday night rush, as people can come in on a Friday or even Saturday and still be brown to go out at the weekend. It also smells of coconut and goes on quite dry. Some of our clients who dont like to sleep in their tan like this spray tan as they can wash it off before they go to bed.
