2019 - My New Years Resolutions

12/30/2018

It's hard to believe we only have just one more full day until 2019! I have always taken time out to reflect my resolutions from the previous year and make some new goals for the year ahead. I enjoy having something to aim for and achieving something you believed you could is a good feeling. I am extremely excited to see what 2019 has in store for us and I cannot wait to be able to share most of my special moments with you. I feel like everything happens for a reason and gets you to where you are today. We create our own lives and how we want to live them and for me I feel that is important to be the best I can be, there's no such thing as perfect and we should always feel the happiest version of ourselves. Here are some of my goals for 2019. 

---------------------------------------------------------

1. I want to take 2 hours out of my time a week to shut off my phone/laptop and read a motivational book. I currently have 'The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck' on the go, but I heard 'The Secret Book' books are good! So I hope to try this whilst relaxing in the bath.

2. Learn to love myself and stop putting myself down. Realise that no one is perfect and just learn that being myself is more than enough! 

3. Making more time for myself and learning to love my own company. 

4. Put 110% into getting my blog back on track, creating content I love and possibly starting up a YouTube, vlogging life/memories and talking to you guys!

5. Show more gratitude to the people I love and care for in my life. I love showing people I care and have a lot of love to give. Showing it more would be my main goal of the year. You never know what may be round the corner so to make sure my loved ones know how appreciative I am of them and how much I love them is definitely something i'll be making sure to do.

6. I have my own Eyelash Extension business so be able to do that full time by the end of the year would be amazing, I get to meet so many lovely girls! 

---------------------------------------------------------

These are just a few of my goals that I aim for by the end of the year and some of them for life! I hope I have inspired you to do the same. It's such a great feeling to get organised and get things done.  What are your goals for 2019? I'd love to hear them!




















The Hair Care Treatment Every Bathroom Cabinet Needs

12/28/2018


Philip Kingsley has easily become the worlds go-to 'hair guru'. He has a very long list of Hollywood clients that trust him to provide them with the best of the best when it comes to their hair care routines. He is the world leading hair care expert on hair and scalp care. So if you're having a struggle finding the right hair care routine you should definitely invest in this beautiful set.

This contains 5 of the most popular hair care items in the Philip Kingsley range. It caters for people who are looking for the ultimate volume and shine. 

I have always been anxious about introducing a new hair care routine into my life as I have tape in extensions and coloured hair, so, as you can understand, I always have to be careful! I only had to use this full regime once to realise why it has so many amazing reviews. My hair was left feeling the same as when you leave the hair salon, soft, sleek, lightweight and so fresh. The smell of the products is incredible and it is suitable for coloured hair too, which for me, is a bonus! 

What does the 5 piece set contain?

Body Building Shampoo (250ml) - this is ideal for fine and textured hair, the shampoo gently cleanses whilst adding lots of volume, body and shine. This made all my flyaway hairs I normally have when I blow-dry, smooth and sleek. 


Moisture Balancing Conditioner (250ml) - this conditioner works so well with the shampoo above, it is ideal for medium, wavy hair. This conditioner made all my dry ends disappear gliding it through the mid lengths of my hair to the ends. It definitely provides easy detangling so I could just brush through my wet hair, no problem. 




Elasticised (150ml) - This is a pre-shampoo treatment that delivers a rush of moisture inside the hair cuticles to increase the manageability of your hair but smoothing the outer lay of the hair to give a sleek silky texture. This is put on for 15-20 mins before you shampoo to give your hair an extra treatment. Almost acting as a hair mask. 



Maximiser (125ml) - This is a volume styling spray for fine, limp and flyaway hair that helps provide  body whilst adding some shine and smoothing any frizz. This I use on towel dried hair before I blow-dry in my roots. I sometimes use this after I have styled my hair to provide extra shine and to flatten down any unwanted hairs.



Polishing Balm (75ml) - This is a rich balm that protects and styles the hair in one smooth application without leaving any residue in your hair behind or built up product. I use this on towel dried hair before I style as it leaves me with smooth hair that I can easily brush through.

Feeling The Fever with Jimmy Choo

12/27/2018



This year Jimmy Choo have definitely been the ones to raise the temperature with a brand new fragrance the Eau de Parfum Fever. This fragrance is an addictive one, not only is the smell divine with notes of black plum nectar, vanilla orchid and jasmine amongst many other exotic, unique smells this fragrance is effortlessly flirty and glamourous. Definitely one for the floral perfume lovers. 

I have always adored the Jimmy Choo range of fragrances, they have always been my go to and I was so excited when I saw they brought out a new one, I just had to have it! I was extremely excited when my partner had gifted it to me for Christmas and I just couldn't wait to wear it! 


The packaging of this fragrance is beautiful. The outer packaging and bottle matching the fragrance being a deep plum colour and the matching plum metallic effect on the outer box is truly stunning. 

What is it like to wear?

The three words I'd use to describe this perfume would be - addictive, sexy and flawless. I feel like I can wear this perfume so easily during the day and it's also perfect for when you want to chuck on your best date night outfit with your bouncy blow dry and red lippy. It's a win-win! It lasts all day on the skin, definitely a perfume to give you ultimate confidence and make you smell like a goddess.



Is this the fragrance for you?

If you love any of the other Jimmy Choo fragrances you'll love this one even more! Also, if you're drawn more towards the fruity and floral hints in a fragrance you'll really enjoy this smell. If you're a fan of the Viktor and Rolf Flower Bomb then this is a similar scent for you to try but fancy a slight change. I do feel like this scent is suited for the majority of people as it's not too overpowering and I've received so many compliments from friends who wouldn't normally go for something floral, so it's definitely worth going into your local perfume shop and having a sniff!



My Fake Tan Routine 2018

6/08/2018




Hey girls! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve last done a blog post but I’m back and I want to share with you my current fake tan routine.

I have definitely experimented and tried the majority of tans on the market. I have found my top products I will 100% be sticking too for my current routine. I have done a post about my favourite fake tan products, but never shared my routine with you, so I thought I'd do this today. I thought it would be fun to share the process with you.

PREP


Prepping your skin is so important and definitely a skip i'll never miss, even if I'm in a rush. Smooth, moisturised skill will take to the fake tan better, without leaving any streaks or patches on drier bits of skin. I will always fake tan straight out the shower, so whilst I'm in the shower I will start off by using an in shower moisturiser. My favourite is the Nivea Body In Shower Moisturiser. This leavings my skin silky smooth ready to shave my legs for the perfect tanning base. I will then use an exfoliating scrub. I have been enjoying the Flake Away scrub by Soap and Glory. I always use exfoliating gloves for this step, I just get these cheap from primark! When I get out of the shower I use my NIP and FAB body slim fix cream all over my body. This leaves the skin firm as its a thick moisturising cream, that also smells amazing! I leave this for about 30 minutes to sink into my skin properly otherwise the fake tan won’t apply how I want it too. 




APPLICATION


My favourite fake tan currently is the 1 HOUR EXPRESS TAN BY BONDI SANDS. I have always been a lover of the Bondi Sands tan but this one has stood out for me along with some other products in their range I use to keep my tan looking it’s best. I usually like to go for a deep, dark tan and this gives me exactly that with just one application. The product comes out quite dark so you can see where you have applied. It only takes 1 hour to develop for a dark tan. Me being me, I do tend to leave mine on overnight and wash off first thing, just to guarantee that deep tan. I am currently just using any fake tan mitt to apply this. It does dry quick so you have to apply quite rapidly. I apply in circular motions around my body till I feel that it’s blended in. I do grab my mum to apply the tan to my back just so I don’t miss any bits! It does have a very strong smell mixture of coconut and biscuits but it does smell nice! 

The reason why this is going to be my go to fake tan is because I feel that it has lasted a lot longer than any other tan I have used. I’d normally get 3/4 days with out of a self-tan. However this one I do reach the 7 day mark before I restart this whole process again.

MAINTENANCE


In between showers to top up my tan and to keep up its golden glow. My go too product is the Bondi Sands Liquid Gold Tan Oil. I tend to put this on my face, chest and legs before bed and it keeps my tan going for longer. This product also gives my skin such a glow and a perfect base for make up. I always make sure I moisturise my dry patches, (knees and my elbows) just to make sure the tan doesn’t dry to these places whilst it’s developing and to maintain the tan there as well.
