Frends Rose Gold ‘Layla’ Headphones Review

Hey guys! I was recently brainstorming ideas for blog posts, and I realised that I’ve had my Frends headphones for so long, and I’ve never given them a full review. So today I thought it’s about time I rectified that, so I’m going to take you through what I think of this product.

The aesthetic. Let’s be honest, these headphones really are quite gorgeous, particularly perfect for youtubers/bloggers, whereby you can constantly take pictures of them, wearing them, and just in general talk about how fabulous they are. In the very words of Frends, “Rose gold delivers a soft, warm glow whilst creating a sense of opulence and romance. Paired with supple white leather, this headphone is the portrait of femininity.”

They are also designed not only with femininity in mind, but the Layla headphones are significantly smaller than the Taylor ones, as these are designed with jewellery in mind. The fact that the headphones are so small means that they can be worn comfortably over the ear, while staying away from the lobes, so you can also wear earrings.

I also think that the fact you can personalise every set is a fun pro to have when it comes to headphones. You can choose from a range of different caps to change up the look as often as you want, it’s like having 5 headphone sets in 1!

The portability. Not only are these headphones very pretty, but they are also perfect for use on the go, as they fold away into a very compact little bag, so they’re not bulky and in the way like most overhead headphones can be.IMG_1889The sound. Ok, so now onto the actual make-or-break of headphones, the quality of the sound. Now after a long and torrid affair with all types of headphones, in ears, overhead, cheap and expensive, I’ve learned what to expect from certain headphones. So when I test out a new pair of headphones, I can really hear the difference.

With cheap headphones, you tend to get a reasonably monotone, tinny sound. You’ll also hear the occasional crackle, and usually the cable is incredibly weak and will break within a couple of days.

That’s why these headphones are my favourite, and have been for over a year now. They are obviously an expensive investment, but I think that they are more than worth it. In my eyes, instead of buying 12 cheap sets over the past year, I’ve saved my money by investing in these. These provide a premium, full and unfiltered sound. They aren’t the bass-iest of all of the headphones I’ve tried, but they definitely provide a much fuller, quality sound.

The cable itself is also similar to a rope cable, and the connecting jack is at a right angle, meaning that it isn’t under a great deal of pressure when it’s in your bag or pocket, and thus at a much lower risk of breaking/being damaged.

Cons

Honestly, the only con I can think of for these headphones is the price, not everyone can, or wants to spend this amount of money on a pair of headphones. Other than the price, I can see no faults or drawbacks to this product.


That’s it for my Layla headphones review, let me know if you’ve tried these headphones, or if you’ve got them!

March Favourites

It’s that time again and I know everyone says it, but I cannot believe how quickly this year is going already. So without further ado, here are some of the things that I have been thoroughly loving this month!


bath and hairspray

Lush’s Dragon’s EggThis is hands down, one of my favourite products that Lush do. It’s one of my favourites on account of many reasons, firstly, just to look at it, you’d assume it looks quite simple and maybe even a bit boring. But when it meets your bath; that’s when the true magic unveils itself. This bath bomb actually turns your bath water gold, and on top of all of that magic, it smells amazing, and if you don’t want to put the whole thing in your bath, you can split it and get two amazing baths out of it!

Radox’s Unwind Bath SoakAs you may be able to tell, I’ve really been enjoying a good bath recently, and nothing makes a bath more relaxing than bubbles. This product is almost always on some kind of deal, so I’d really recommend picking up some and giving it a try. They come in various types of ‘soak’ and you can select whichever one you feel that you’re craving, for example, ‘Muscle Therapy’, ‘Moisture Soak’ and ‘Nourish’. I’ve been loving ‘Unwind’ because it has a really deep, relaxing smell and it turns your bath water into a pure blue. Perfect for at the end of a long day or whenever you’re feeling a bit tense.

Salon Professional’s Extra Hold Hairspray | I have actually been loving this product for months. It does exactly what it says on the tin, providing extra hold for any style that you may choose. It prevents fly aways, and keeps your style in place all day. It’s not sticky, and something that never seems to come into the game of hairspray; it smells amazing. It doesn’t leave you choking on any fumes and it actually leaves your hair smelling amazing.


headphones

Frends Layla HeadphonesI’ve been after these headphones for a couple of months, and this month, I found them on offer by Urban Outfitters, so I grabbed them. I absolutely adore these headphones because they aren’t huge, like most headphones, instead they are really small (perfect for people with small heads and ears such as myself). They have a really beautiful design, and are quite cute and girly, the perfect overhead headphones for me. Frends actually designed these with jewellery in mind, not only keeping the design pretty, while still delivery outstanding quality music, they are small enough to not press down on your ears if you are wearing earrings. They also come with this very handy case that makes them even easier to slip into your bag, and prevents the cables from tangling.


kitty and socks

This one is a little bit of fun, because he is really handsome and special. Here is Puss in Boots, entirely hand knitted by grandmother for me! If you, like me, think he’s handsome, let me know in the comments below and I’ll let my grandmother know!

New Look’s Floral SocksSince Spring has sprung, I’ve been slowly fading out all of the dark block colours, and bring in lighter colours and florals. These socks are a perfect in between because they can work at any time of year, but right now they’re perfect for wearing with heels or shoes with cut outs in them, so you can show off the daisies. And on top of all of that, they have an adorable frilled edge.


nivea and hairmask

Oz Botanic’s Major Moisture Deep ConditionerI mentioned this product in my Ombre Hair Care Routine, and it really is amazing. It has revived the ends of my hair, and leaves my hair soft, shiny and manageable! And as I’m sure I mentioned before, it smells good too, unlike most other deep conditioners that are more expensive, they do the trick but they don’t smell as lovely.

Nivea Creme | This moisturiser is such a staple for me, I always have it on me and it really is a miracle in a pot. There are no added colours or scents, so it’s amazing on sensitive skin, and it’s quite thick so it lasts you all day, and you don’t need to apply a lot; in this case, a little really goes a long way. They are also available in handy tiny pots that would fit right in your handbag or make-up bag, perfect for on the go.


Those are some of the things that I’ve been loving this month, let me know what you’ve been loving, whether it’s something you’ve always loved and used or if it’s something that you’ve newly discovered, I’d love to know!
