Pamper / Lazy Day

pamper day

After having a bad week or finishing all your assignments you just want to sit back and relax and have some ‘me time’.

Heres a few things that i do to help me relax;

pamper 1

First thing i do is get into some comfy clothing. I either opt for pjs or joggers and a slouchy top and slipper socks. I hate having to get dressed if I’m just going to lounge about all day so i put on my comfiest clothes.
The Hello Kitty pjs are from primark and the slipper socks are also from primark.

I’ve recently got back into painting my nails as I’ve always been busy to take my old nail varnish and put a new coat on. But since getting new nail polishes i’ve been putting new colours on my nails each week. This week i went for these No7 Gel – look shine & No7 Nail effect. These are in the shades ‘Neptune’ & ‘Sun Rays’.

When I’m in bed i love reading when i get some free time, i love getting lost in a book but since being at uni I’ve found no time to read. So at the weekend or my day off i love reading a few chapters. My current favourite book is Fangirl, i got this at christmas and i haven’t put it down yet!

I also love magazines and i have a box full of old ones i can’t bear to throw away! (yup I’m a hoarder of old magazines) I love Vogue but being on a budget this is a treat when i have money, Vogue always reminds me of when i was in high school and i desperately wanted to read it but as it cost’s about £5 i couldn’t bring myself to buy it. Then while i was at my dads we went to the shop and he bought Vogue for me and i still have that magazine now as i was so happy to finally get it. I also love reading ‘Teen Vogue’ ‘Seventeen’ ‘Company’ & ‘Elle’.

Face mask’s are a great way to help you relax and also pamper yourself. When i have free time or when i go for a hot bubble bath i love putting on a face mask, these two are my favourite face mask’s and they always leave my face feeling so soft and brighter looking.

Pamper 3

Bath bombs are bath fizzes i don’t use every time i have a bath, i like using them when I’m feeling stressed or ill to make myself feel better. I got a few bath bombs for christmas and i can’t wait to use them. Yesterday i used the Lush bath bomb my sister got me and i absolutely loved it! (review coming soon)

On my pamper days i use a hair mask to give my hair a break and to restore the damage that colouring my hair has done to it. The L’Oreal Elvive leaves my hair feeling softer and also a little thicker and the John Frieda leaves it feeling healthy and smells amazing. I have yet to try the Sanctuary hair mask, i got this off my mum for christmas and i will be doing a review on it soon.

When i have free time or I’m having a pamper day i love watching films and catching up with tv series.
Currently I’m loving Heroes, i watched this when it came out years ago and me and my family have been watching a few episodes every night and i can’t get enough of it!

I’m also loving 90210 as i used to watch it when my sister watched it and its on Netflix so I’ve been re watching it from the beginning.

Netflix has put Pretty Little Liars on and I’m so happy and me and my friend used to be obsessed with it and i watched every episode when it came out but recently I’ve had to watch it on online sites and could never find one that didn’t buffer or freeze so I left it. But now i can catch up on all the episodes i missed and get back into it again!

What do you do on your pamper/lazy days?

*The natural light wasn’t on my side while taking these photo’s so had to opt for a nice filter to make them look better. Getting natural light can be a pain to bloggers!*

Face Mask Review

santuary

sanctuary-logo

Sanctuary is a high end product and a little on the pricy side. I only use them once in a while as a deep skin treatment.

Here are my two favourite face mask’s and my review on them

Warming Charcoal Detox Mask

The warming charcoal mask is amazing! My mum had the little sachets of them and i decided to use it while i had a bath as the weather and the stress of university has both joined forces and broke my skin out! As soon as you put it on you can feel it warming up and it’s so nice, i only put half the pack on my face and left it on while i relaxed in the bath. After i washed it all off and my skin felt so nice and smooth and i can see it actually helped my skin and my blemishes go down.

If you want to go all out and purchase the 100ml bottle (£10.50) click here
or if you just want the 15ml sachet (£3.00) click here.

Moisture Boosting Mask

The moisture boosting mask i wasn’t too keen on. It’s a good face mask it does what it says on the packaging but i didn’t like the way it felt on my face.  It made my face feel nice and smooth and look a little brighter but i didn’t like what it felt like when it was on. It felt greasy and it took me a long time to take it off and after it felt like i still had it on. But if you prefer this type of mask then the peal off ones or the paper makes then this would be great for you.

You can buy this from boots (£3.00) here
