I have always been lucky enough in my life to adore my day to day job, but nothing compares or even comes close to being a Mum! I think I do a great job. Both of my children are self confident, yet not cocky nor arrogant. They are smart, clever, funny, sharp but above all they are kind. I have always said I don’t care what grades you get, as long as you have given it your very best shot!
Being a mum can be hard but take every day as it comes & you will do just fine!
Talking more about Self Care & what I love to do to take a few minutes out from day to day life, I thought I would look at what products i use to help me unwind and relax. Here are a few things I recommend:
1. Good skincare
You can’t beat a good skin care routine, whether it be face, body, hands, there is nothing better than slathering yourself in rich, beautiful creams to suit your skin. Feel nourished, moisturised and pampered! My fave brand for Skincare has got to be La Mer.
Their moisturisers visibly smooth, plump and soothe fine dry lines leaving you feeling hydrated and renewed.
2. A nice warm bath & essential oils
I absolutely LOVE having a bath with essential aromatherapy oils to really relax my body and mind.
3. Surround yourself in beautiful fragrance
I can’t think of anything better than to light some candles and switch off! My favourite treat for lovely fragrance around the house and even at work is Jo Loves.
Scented candles are my ultimate go to. Nothing else compares to Jo Loves or Jo Malone!
There is nothing i’m more passionate about (other than my kids of course!) than HAIR HAIR HAIR. It is so important to not spend more time loving yourself, but also taking time to LOVE YOUR HAIR!
Lived in, sexy, feminine low key hair will always be my thing but it always has to have the element of ‘undone sexiness’ about it and of course GREAT COLOUR is essential!!
As for #SelfHairCare products, I like clean hair but with support and/or a good finish. Products such as Moroccan Oil Dry Texture Spray is THE best dry texturiser EVER!!
Your hair will go from L to XXXXXXL with just a few sprays in the right place! I love that stuff!
As it is the month of LOVE, I thought it was a great time to discuss the importance of Self Care and putting YOU first! Loving yourself!
In all my years it has taken me so long to master this, but you just have to learn to say NO! It took me a long time but I now I find it much easier to balance my life.
I also love QUIET! Quiet time is essential for a sound mind offering clear thinking time. I learnt how to breathe properly and it makes me laugh typing this because we all know how to breathe right? Even so, i find that sitting quietly and focusing on deep rhythmic breathing really works for me.
Do you struggle to make time for yourself? Don’t feel guilty about it, but try to set a goal by spending 30 minutes a week in silence, with a book or even writing down your goals. It is amazing what a bit of ‘Self Care’ can do for the mind!
We are offering a ‘Pick Me Up’ package this month – if you are looking for ways to unwind and look after yourself, this could be one way! Check out the offer here.
Colour glossing is for EVERYONE!!
This time of year, our hair can feel a bit ‘tired’ even slightly parched and in DESPO need of some hair TLC – hair glossing is perfect for this. It is quick, affordable and only benefits the condition.
Glossing comes in all different shades and gives hair a glass like finish.
They work like a semi permanent colour so are completely non committal – most people this time of year start to warm down their blonde, they make their brunette a touch richer, but even for the cooler shade wannabes colour glossing works a treat!
Come try it out!
I absolutely LOVE this product at the moment, especially for use in the Summer!
The Nuxe Paris shimmering dry oil ‘Huile Prodigieuse®’ contains tiny shimmering mineral particles that illuminates the skin and hair in one go! It is a unique, nourishing and non-greasy product that is a handbag must this Summer!
Apply this to your face, body and hair all year round but especially after sun exposure to get an incredibly radiant enhanced effect!
I love LOVE that you can use this product on your hair too. Apply a few touches of Huile Prodigieuse® to instantly illuminate the hair! Even better, the smell is gorgeous!!
Top Tip: go for the 100ml which is a spray, it is so much easier to apply!!
