Hey loves, welcome back to my website :-)
I think we all need to take some time out for ourselves to pamper our bodies. I try to take at least 1 evening a week to put on a hair and face mask, then relax! I also love to spend relaxing days in with the girls doing DIY spa days. In today's blog I will be sharing some things I like to do when I relax and ideas for a girls night in!
Firstly I like to make sure I am stocked up with snacks so I don't have to leave the house when i'm all relaxed. I love to have fresh fruit to snack on as it's super important to take care of yourself from the inside out :-) I then like to put on some comfy clothes...usually my dressing gown and slippers!
For a DIY facial firstly I remove any makeup I have on. I then like to steam my face to open up my pores for a deep clean. To do this I simply pour boiling water into a large bowl and put a towel over my head, then lean over the bowl for around 5 minutes. It gets really steamy and hot which is great to open the pores and get out any trapped dirt!
Following this I like to put on a face mask. My personal favs are clay masks and tea tree mask as these draw out impurities from the skin. I have blemish prone skin and find these 2 work best for me. However you can use whatever mask works well for your skin, depending what you are trying to achieve!
While my face mask is on I also like to give my hair some TLC. One super simple option for hair is to get some coconut oil and put this all over your hair. I like to tie my hair up in a bun once the oil is applied to keep it neat and tidy. You can leave this on for as long as you like, however I find it works great if you leave it on for a couple of hours. After washing your hair later that evening, it will feel super soft and healthy.
Again there are many options for hair masks, this is just one I like to do personally :-).
Then it's time to relax and eat your snacks!
Even though this is relaxing time, sometimes I like to bake cakes or fudge with my friends when having a girls day/night. I sure do have a sweet tooth! If you are interested in seeing any recipes please let me know.
Also while your face/hair mask is on this could be great time to paint your nails or whiten your teeth! I find painting my nails quite therapeutic at times :-) for teeth whitening I just use the Crest 3D whitening strips which are super easy to use.
These are just a couple of ideas which I enjoy and thought you might too!
Please do remember that is it important to take time for yourself, we all deserve it <3
Hey my darlings, hope you are all well!
In todays blog thought i'd share some beauty bargains I have found lately. If you can get a product for a fraction of the price which does the same job as a high end product, I think it is definitely a great find! I really love all these products I have listed below and will be repurchasing for sure :-).
1. MUA Lip Liner £1 - I picked up this nude lip liner this week and i'm absolutely loving it! It is the perfect shade for my lips and very similar to the more expensive lip liners I have found. The lid also includes a pencil sharpener which I think is a very useful accessory. I do find the liner is quite soft and needs sharpening regularly but overall a great product and for £1 you can't go wrong!
2. MUA Highlighter £3 - This is a gorgeous super pigmented highlighter, a little goes a long way! I would deff recommend giving this a try if you are on the look out for a new highlighter.
3. Mango body mist £10 The Body Shop - This has to be my favorite perfume... it smells so yummy and sweet/fruity, I find the scent last all day too which I love! This is a lot cheaper than many other perfumes on the market but up there for sure when it comes to quality :-)
4. Boohoo skater dress £12 - I was on the look out for a new black dress and found this one on the boohoo website. I find it such a flattering design, as well as being super comfy! This dress comes in a variety of colors which I think would be perfect for nights out. Definitely think it is a bargain for £12!
Thanks so much for reading! I hope this post has been helpful for some of you on the look out for cheaper options. If you have any bargain buys you have found please let me know, as i'd love to check them out :-)
Lots of love
