Spring Pamper Evening♥

Hiya angels!

I hope you are all VERY well and have had a lovely start to the week! Mine has been AMAZING .. as I have been off work so have really just had the time to RELAX and get things done at a good pace! I have COMPLETELY cleared out and organized my wardrobe (YAY!).. I was honestly quite scared to do this… BUT I was SO chuffed to have finished it within 2 hours (WOO GO ME!)… I think it is honestly one of the BEST feelings when you have a beautifully organised wardrobe…. I CANNOT STOP LOOKING AT IT HEHE!

Right darlings… I have a VERY exciting post for you all… WOOP! One of the fist things I blogged about was my pamper routine … but I did write that during winter so it did feature “wintery” things.. i.e. peppermint & gingerbread body scrubs … SO.. I thought it would be PERFECT to talk to you all about my SPRING THEMED pamper routine! I LOVE changing up the products I use depending on the season… so expect to see lots of fresh/fruity/bright beauty bits in this post! YAY.. lets get on with it!…

Firstly… I like to do this routine maybe 2-3 times a week.. it is so nice to put aside a few hours or so to just make yourself feel relaxed and pampered.. you deserve it after all you hard working lot!

Face

So.. the first thing I HAVE to do is get rid of the mask of make-up I have been wearing ALL day… and I have been LOVING using the Supernatural Beauty Glorious Cleansing Balm to remove my make-up. It is an oil-based balm (similar to The Body Shop Balm).. and all you need to do is rub some between your fingers and then massage ALL over your face.. you will have SERIOUS panda eyes after.. but it does SUCH an amazing job at removing ALL your makeup!

Then..  I give my skin another cleanse to make sure EVERY bit of makeup is removed .. and I use the Magnitone brush (which is my BABY) with Clinique’s foaming wash. This does such a FAB job of cleansing my skin SO well.. BUT my skin does feel slightly dry after… so maybe my dry skinned girlies will be best staying away from this!

Bath♥

No pamper routine would be complete without some sort of Lush product involved! So .. get your bath running… and get your Spring Lush products ready to use! I have been LOVING the Bunch of Carrots bubble bar (HOW bloody adorable are they!?)… and also the Think Pink bath bomb… both these make your bath the PRETTIEST pink colour and just make it smell SO sweet!

Before I actually get in my bath, I like to wash my hair with the Coco Loco shampoo from Lee Stafford (yep you guessed it… it smells like coconuts.. yum!) and then apply the deep conditioning mask! THEN… I am ALL set to jump in my bath! I like to use the Bouncy Bunny shower jelly from Lush on my body after to just make my skin feel SO soft! It is literally the CUTEST thing ever! AND it smells like chocolate oranges.. can you think of anything better? Nope.. me neither.

Moisturize

Once I get out of the bath… it is time to MOISTURIZE! Now… I would be the biggest lover of vanilla/chocolaty scented body butters (my go to was the Palmers cocoa butter in the tub.. IT SMELT LIKE BROWNIES).. BUT for Spring time I like to use something lighter and with more of a fresh scent.  My FAVE as been The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit body butter.. as you can imagine it has a citrussy scent AND it feels SO beautiful on the skin! On alternate days.. I use coconut oil for a VERY intense treatment… every time I use this I wake up with the SOFTEST skin ever. As you can imagine.. this leaves you feeling QUITE oily… so I would do this an hour or so before bed so it has time to soak in properly. ALSO… don’t neglect your poor hands guys!! I have been LOVING The Body Shop Petal Soft Hand Cream.. it really has the MOST perfect scent for Spring and leaves your hands feeling SO soft! I then moisturize my face with the Avon Truly Radiant Night Serum, which makes my skin SO glowy.. and on alternate days I will use coconut oil!

PJ’s

RIGHT once we are all pampered out.. it is time to put on your FAVE PJ’s… now as you know I am the BIGGEST lover of fuzzy pj’s.. BUT unfortunately in the Spring these can make you feel SLIGHTLY sweaty.. SO you need to get yourself some light pj’s .. if they are flora/pastel.. even better!

IMG_9499

So lovelies.. that is how to have the PERFECT spring pamper evening… LOTS of fresh, citrussy scents and plenty of florals & pastels… what reminds you of Spring? Do you change up your pamper routine once Spring comes around? Let me know darlings!!

I really hope you enjoyed this post angels.. I am having the BEST time during my week off… It is honestly exactly what you need sometimes.. I am SO excited to be going to a Lush event tonight too (eeeek!!)… I will hopefully be meeting some bloggers AND getting to learn more about Lush.. cannot wait!!

OK lovelies.. look after yourselves… enjoy the long Easter weekend.. and I will see you all in my next one!

Lots of Love,

In Love With: Coco Loco!

Happy Monday lovelies!

Hope you had an amazing weekend! Did any of you get up to anything fun on Valentine’s? Me and Hubs don’t really celebrate Valentine’s anymore – however, this didn’t stop hubs from surprising me with flowers, a balloon and chocolates (it was so unexpected but so sweet at the same time!). I will give you an update of what I got up to on the weekend before getting on to the actual post!

So… Saturday I was up SUPER early to do some shopping – where I picked up the most perfect denim pinafore (something I have been wanting to buy for the LONGEST time – I will be featuring in a blog post too!) and also a few gifts for my dad as it is his birthday today! Happy Birthday!♥ I then went back home and took some blog photos as THE LIGHTING WAS SO PERFECT! The rest of the day was just spent with family! Then .. Sunday I had a quick rearrange of my room (I get SO bored with my room set up.. anyone else the same?.. I cannot be alone surely hehe!)… took some outfit pictures, then went for a long walk in a nearby country house, had a takeaway, came home, had a quick pamper night and then OFF TO BED! I honestly love making the most of my weekends .. as I work full time I am absolutely SHATTERED when I come home. I am thinking of writing a post about how I fit in blogging whilst working..let me know if you would like me to?

Crazy Over Coco Loco♥

ANYWAYS LOVES.. should we get on with this post? So.. I was recently kindly sent some products to try from NBPR.. who are the PR team for Lee Stafford products*! I was honestly SO excited when I received a hot pink package in the post – which can I add also smelt ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! Now.. I have been such a massive lover of Lee Stafford products.. a few years ago before I wore my hijab, I was OBSESSED with their “Poker Straight” range! Since I have been wearing my hijab.. I have definitely neglected my poor hair! I would just use whatever shampoo/conditioner was in the shower.. but I definitely noticed the toll on my scalp/hair (boo!). My hair would be SO DRY … and I started to suffer from a dry scalp :(.

So…. I received the shampoo, conditioner AND hair treatment from Lee Stafford’s fabulous Coco Loco range! As you can probably tell from the name, ALL THESE PRODUCTS contain coconut oil, which I am sure we all know is AMAZING for dry hair! 

The actual packaging of this range itself is SO ADORABLE… It is SO girly and pretty, and definitely looks amazing in my shower! OH MY do not even get me started on the scent.. it is literally like a tropical paradise in a bottle. Is it just me, or does anything coconut scented remind you of being on a beachy holiday? Let me tell you about my first experience using it… and also how it has helped my poor hair!

First Impressions

:The shampoo itself smells GORGEOUS… I used it on my hair twice to give it a really good clean! It lathers up SO nicely, and I could just tell how soft it made my hair straight away! I decided to use the hair treatment on my first go. The consistency of the treatment was VERY thick (as you would expect with treatments!).. and I left it on my hair for around 10 minutes. As soon as I washed it out, I could feel how soft and nourished my hair felt! The smell also lingered on my hair whilst it was drying! I always leave me hair to dry naturally, and usually it would feel quite rough and start to frizz quite a lot! The day I used this shampoo/conditioner, my hair felt SO SOFT and did not frizz at all! I was also able to smell the GORGEOUS coconut scent the day after!

A Week After

After a week of using this range, I have definitey noticed a HUGE difference in how my hair/scalp feels! I don’t have that awful “rough” texture to my hair, and my scalp just feels so much healthier! My hair in general is so much softer and constantly smells of coconut!

Overall Impressions

The packaging of this range is absolutely stunning, the scent is GORGEOUS, and it has definitely made my hair feel so fabulous! I highly recommend it to girlies who suffer from dry hair.. I am not sure how this range would work on those who have slightly oilier hair.. maybe it will be too nourishing/moisturizing? It is definitely perfect for the upcoming summer months – who doesn’t want to have hair that smells like coconuts? It is also amazing for  winter, as the hair treatment does such a fabulous job in nourishing your hair! It is my go to treatment for pamper evenings!

So.. there we have it! My impressions of this FABULOUS RANGE.. Hope you enjoyed it! Let me know what you got up to on the weekend! I am all set for a very busy week at work… however I have some time off next week which I cannot WAIT for.. it is definitely long overdue! I will see you in my next one darlings!

Lots of Love,
