Feather Hair Extensions by Feather Ray!

I love feather jewellery & own a whole stack of feather earrings, so when I recently heard about feather hair extensions, I was super intrigued! I started to notice celebs rockin' the hair feather look, Ke$ha in particular kept popping up with feathers in her hair:


As I don't really like to dye my hair, so the thought of using brightly coloured feathers to create highlights sounded uber appealing! After a quick Google search, I found out that Steven Tyler is to blame for the sudden feather frenzy. The craze is MASSIVE in the US, hair salons will apply feathers to your hair for muchos dollars & they can last weeks, if not months.


A further Google search led me to a UK website (not to be named but they are total rubbish) who sell hair feathers that you can apply yourself. I placed an order & after watching this amazing tutorial by Kandee Johnson, I was convinced I'd be able to put them in myself:

How adorable is she!?

A few days later my feathers arrived & I ripped open the package!! My heart sank. The feathers were TINY, I couldn't believe I'd wasted £15 on them. I was absolutely devastated and it seemed my hair feather dream was over. I began to give up on the idea of having ridiculously cool hair...UNTIL I discovered the amazing Feather Ray!



They have a fantastic website that clearly shows what you get in each feather pack. They also have pictures of girls wearing each pack in case you aren't sure which look(s) to go for! I was slightly dubious (after the last feather disaster), so I got in contact with Ro to ask her about the size of the feathers. She was SO helpful and gave me lots of information and advice.

I decided to go for the 'Rainbow Festival Mix' which is £15:

I wasn't disappointed!!

I re-watched Kandee Johnson's video and put them in! The great thing about real feathers is that you can wash, curl & straighten them as if you would your own hair. Also, if you look after them they can last up to 2 months! Wowza.


I personally like separating the feathers to create a funky all over feather look. However, because you get at least seven feathers, you can apply them in twos or threes, or even all together to make a fierce statement!


After finding Feather Ray I would never buy hair feathers from anywhere else. It's run by 2 best friends, Neal and Ro who are feather fiends, festival crazy & super sweet. I 100% recommend them to everyone!!

For more Feather Ray news, follow them on Facebook & stalk them on Twitter.

T- Totally buying a few extra packs to take backpacking! No dodgy backpacker hair for this Rawr Girl. XoX


Please note: For those who have concerns about the feathers, Feather Ray use the best quality, ethically produced, real feathers. They carefully choose their feathers and source them from the worlds top producer, Whitings Farm. You can expect nothing but the best from Feather Ray.

Rawr Girls LOVE Punky Pins!

Punky Pins offer a range of fun, young & edgy designs that can't be found on the high street! The brand was established in 2005 and all of their jewellery and clothing pieces are produced and handmade in-house. Us Rawr Girls have been rockin' Punky Pins for years but last week we received our best haul yet!

Our new bling...

Soda Pop Name Necklace, £10. We ADORE our RawrGirl necklaces so much! They're SO cute and just the perfect size - we literally squee'd when we opened the boxes!


Scrabble Initial Necklace, £7. These are perfect for adding a bit of pop to an outfit, and you can layer them with other pieces too because they're so light and neutral in colour.


They've become a bit of a RawrGirl staple - J & T = double style score!



Love & Hate Tattoo Studs, £4.50. These earrings are fierce. Totally love the little broken 'Hate' heart - adorable!



Chunky Metal Lightening Bolt Necklace, £12. Wow, this piece slayed us, PP weren't joking when they called this chunky! It's shiny, weighty and just gorgeous. The chain is a nice length too, it looks pretty darn good with our fave Wildfox tees ;)



Reversible Metal Mix Tape Necklace, £12. How very 80's!? We absolutely love this chunky necklace, it's like a trip down memory lane! We remember recording our favourite tunes from the radio & then blasting them on our Sony Walkmans ;) The best thing about this necklace is that it's reversible, choose Pink or Blue to reflect your mood!



Pink Metal Retro Car Necklace, £9.
Bubble Pop Electric! How cute is this!? It makes us think of Grease & is perfect for adding a quirky touch to any outfit. Totally adorablz.



We think it's awesome that they're constantly releasing new designs & everything is so darn affordable. It's even been spotted on numerous celebrities such as Alexandra Burke!

You can view the full collection on their website & make sure you stalk them on Twitter & Facebook for all the latest news & giveaways.

J & T- Never taking our 'RawrGirl' necklaces off! ;) XoX

T's Prodigy Red Dress!

A Rawr Girl can never have too many cute dresses. So when I spotted this One Shoulder Belted Lace Dress, £17.99 from Prodigy Red, I just had to have it!


As mentioned in a previous post by J, the delivery was practically light speed! When I ripped open the package, I soon discovered that it's even cuter in person. EEK! It has a really comfy fit & I feel like I could run around in it all day & night and still look & feel fabulous. The belt is removable, so in the below pic I changed it for a slightly darker one to match my handbag!


The picture doesn't really show the bag clearly but it's the Whipstitch Saddle Bag, £8.00 from Matalan: I think it compliments the dress perfectly & it looks like something I would have picked up along my travels! I paired it with a Stone Necklace from Next, an armour ring from Forever 21 & some random bracelets I got in Cambodia.

I can't believe this whole outfit cost less than £40- amazing! If you're looking for something super cute but you don't want to break the bank, I definitely recommend Prodigy Red! They have a great range of products & everything is SO affordable.

What do you think of my outfit? Is it a big thumbs up!? ;)

T- Lady in (Prodigy) Red. XoX

Rawr Girls REVIEW Stunning Hair and Beauty!

As well as being fashion OBSESSED, us Rawr Girls are also passionate about hair and beauty. We're always on the hunt for the latest must-have make up item or hair product/accessory, and this is what led us to Stunning Hair and Beauty!




Based in the UK & established this year, Stunning Hair and Beauty offer a wide range of hair and beauty products from hair and feather extensions, to styling tools & hair accessories...All at affordable prices!


Tara's favourite product on the site was the large Swarovski Crystal Clips (£6). They are perfect for adding a bit of sparkle to any outfit & at that price, she had to have them!


T- Delivery was super fast! When they arrived I was surprised at how beautifully they were packaged, they were tissue wrapped & came in a lovely little gift bag with a ribbon tie. There was also a really thoughtful covering letter enclosed (which I think is a really nice touch), it almost felt like I was receiving a gift from a friend!



Jade's fave item on the webby was the Braided Head Band, £4, available in six natural colours but shown here in Blonde, though J chose Dark Brown obvi :)

J - I'm growing a short style out and finding it really hard to find hair accessories that look good in my all over the place hair right now, this headband looks natural and blends in really nicely, whilst holding firm. The packaging is a nice touch and really does feel like a gift, loved it!


Close up:



You can view their full range of products (which is constantly growing) on their official website! Make sure you stalk them on Twitter & like them on Facebook for information on new products and giveaways.

What do you Rawrers think? Do you have a favourite item from their website?

J & T- In the words of Gaga, as free as our hair! XoX

J's Prodigy Red Blazer!

A blazer is a girl's best friend at the best of times but pop it in a cool grey marl jersey and it becomes so much more versatile! This one is from Prodigy Red, and the price is pretty sweet! Grey Jersey Boyfriend Blazer, £19.99.


Delivery was super fast, and I'm really impressed with the jacket. It's strong and well made with a good cut, plus there are nice details like striped cuff linings that show if you turn them over or push them up.

So, I harnessed a sunset for you (and my BF with his camera) and snapped a few pics! I teamed it with my fave trousers of the moment - the Motel Jordan Striped jeans, a Wildfox Couture 'Let Love Rule' tee and Iron Fist Gold Star wedges, I think the neutral colours of the tee and blazer really work with the bold stripes :)







I think this outfit will be coming to foggy London town with us this weekend, perfect for hopping around the Garden!

J - Blazing.
