I hope you’re having a great weekend? I went out for a very rare night on the town last night, and ended up sleeping in all morning, oops! I had the best time though, and it does make me wonder how I used to do it every weekend when I was younger, I’m knackered today! I really needed it as haven’t had the best week. My anxiety has flared up again, seemingly out of nowhere and I’ve been feeling pretty rotten, so last night was just what I needed to help me feel like me again! I also decided to cut my hair off before I went out, as you do – I’ll have a post on that later in the week! So here are the things I’ve been loving this week…
(£85) I’ve been really really good and haven’t bought any beauty products for a while now, ok except for a couple of bits from MAC’s Wash and Dry collection, but apart from that, I really have been restrained. I then happened to notice that Sunday Riley’s Luna Night Oil was on pre-order at Space NK, now this really has been top of my wish list ever since I read Caroline Hirons rave review, so I decided to treat myself! If you haven’t heard of it, this oil is described as ‘A next-generation retinoid oil to reduce pore size, improve appearance of damaged skin and help fight wrinkles.’ It sounds AMAZING – I’ve only just started using it and I’m loving it so far, I’ll save the details for my full review which will be up in the next 2-3 weeks.
La Montana Candle in First Light (£35) This beautiful collection of candles are inspired by the founders’ new life in a Spanish mountain village – so if you’re a fan of the Mediterranean, you’ll be sure to like these scents. The First Light candle is described as ‘A unique, intoxicating blend of wild, aromatic mountain herbs: fennel, bergamot, rosemary, mountain pepper, and rockrose.’ This is La Montaña’s signature fragrance, representing the scent of their new mountain home. This candle has a beautiful scent that’s comforting yet fresh, I’ve been burning it all week and my house smells divine.
Skins. My latest Netflix obsession. I watched Skins when it originally aired on TV in 2007, and I guess I kind of forgot about it till I noticed it last weekend when it popped up on my Netflix recommendations. I’ve literally been watching it all week, it’s really additive! If you haven’t seen Skins, it’s basically a teen drama with lots of drugs and sex, and a good helping of comedy. I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a new series to get stuck into!
(£4.00) These sweet little eye pads arrived only yesterday morning, and I’ve already used two sets! The box contains 10 sets of pads – which are printed to look like cucumber slices, and they’re infused with cucumber extract and aloe vera to soothe and cool the eye area. I popped mine in the fridge before using them so they felt amazingly cool and comforting on my troublesome puffy eyes. After 2-5 minutes you’re then left with a brighter and rejuvenated eye area!
ESPA Naturally Radiant Tinted Moisturiser (£32) I was actually surprised with now much I loved this product. I’m usually a medium to full coverage kinda gal, so tinted moisturisers are not something I would automatically reach for. I was sent a sample to try though, and even though you don’t get much coverage – as expected, this tinted moisturiser leaves your skin with a really healthy looking glow. I actually love it! If you’re after coverage then this product won’t be for you, but if you have decent skin and you’re just looking to even out your complexion and add radiance, this is definitely worth trying. I have the two lightest shades Nude and Blush, which both worked fantastically well on my fair skin tone.
I hope you enjoyed my post! xxx
