Wahanda has Christmas covered

Wahanda has Christmas covered
This Christmas I am hoping to get all my lovely girly friends together and spend a wonderful day together doing something totally relaxing and zen, I certainly know that working full time, running my business AND being a wife and friend is bloody hard work and my friends are no different.

Wahanda has launched a personalised gift finder on their website which might be just up my street! In the one place I can find the best spas and then pick and choose my treatments and gifts to suit my friends…. I could buy a massage for my stressed office worker friend, a heavenly pedicure for my chef friend on their feet all day, an afternoon of hydrotherapy for my water baby friend or the Spa brand gift pack for the friend overseas… the choices are endless!!

Personally, I used the gift finder to look for new spa’s in our area and I have picked out the Serenity Spa Day at the wonderful Armathwaite Hall. I would take my best friend for this day as she is amazing and really deserves some TLC (who doesn’t eh!). I’ve heard so many good things about this place I know we’d have a wonderful time. That’s another thing I like about Wahanda, the sites detailed and I can find reviews on each venue.

The tool was super easy to use and gave me options I probably wouldn’t have thought of if I had gone about it myself! Go try it now.

 Will you be buying anyone a lovely spa treat for Christmas?

Review : Proactiv Solution – Green Tea Moisturizer

Review : Proactiv Solution – Green Tea Moisturizer
As part of a recent post about holiday beauty HERE I was determined to give this whole in flight beauty malarky a go and while rooting round my box of smaller sized products I picked out the Proactiv tube to ensure it was within the 100ml plastic bag rule. I had originally been planning on taking the Biotherm Skin Ergetic Concentrate but sadly the active ingredient component of the product made me break out in a rash due to the pureness of it.
This moisturizer truly is the most amazingly fresh, light, cooling scented moisturiser I have ever smelt. It instantly makes you feel refreshed and a little bit more composed. It has a light, almost cucumber like smell to it which I really can’t put in to words how refreshing it feels and smells once you rub it in! And we all know how iffy I am about scented products!
The product is a very light, slightly opaque lotion that spreads easily and is absorbed evenly and quickly. You do get a lot of slip to the product though so a little does go a long way. A small pea will do your full face.
I did cheat during the flight and didn’t take my make up off, but just kept re-moisturising over the top (tsk tsk I know, I don’t know what posessed me!) and not once did it make me feel clammy or overloaded. It just kept on replenishing my dry tight feeling skin with minimal disruption to my slap.
As I’ve mentioned in just about all face related posts, my skin is very sensitive and this didn’t once break me out. Mr T even dabbed a little bit around his eyes after bout 7hrs in to the flight and he said he was amazed at the cooling effect. After about 9hrs I even dabbed a little bit behind my ears and along the back of my neck and it really did perk me up.
I stepped off that plane feeling cool calm and collected, despite having no sleep, and my skin didn’t look bloated, sallow or aggrevated which is a first for me as I usually look like I’ve been dragged through a hedge backwards when I step off a plane!
I have kept the remainder of the tube on my desk as I am that enamoured with the Green Tea Moisturizer and I now know what will forever be in my flight case for travel! It has come in very handy for soothing my tender burnt nose and hairline – Don’t ask! – without aggrevating or smothering the skin any further.
I can imagine this moisturizer coming in handy on those dark dingy mornings of winter when all you wan’t to do is sleep but need to feel pepped and awake at 6am… I’ll probably be reaching for it then too!
You can buy the Proactiv Solution Green Tea Moisturizer in the following way :


Bye Bye Frizz

Bye Bye Frizz


Today, I am booked in for my first Brazilian / Keratin blow dry and I can’t wait.

I don’t have too much issue with my natural hair being curly as such so i’m not wanting it for it’s straightening powers but for helping fight frizz on the ends so I won’t have to heat treat my hair.

I’m also excited to see how it copes in high humidity for stopping my hair frizzing out in to a giant fuzz ball.

It will be perfect for my holidays and those odd balmy days we sometimes get in to September where it’s still a bit too warm to wear a big winter coat, but it’s still raining… y’know those days? They play havoc with my hair!

And to follow in line with the lovely Monica Gellar monster hair, my husband has threatened to lock me in my room if I try to calm it with a baseball cap or seashell braids… that’s love isnt it!

I am going to the appointment today with a little trepidation. I don’t want to have huge expectations and be disappointed with the results but after speaking to the lovely Louise from Get Lippie on Twitter (@getlippie) about her experiences of having the treatment, I think i’m prepared.

The only thing that really puts me off is the no washing hair for 4 days… it’s not even like I can tie it back during those 4 days either! I bloomin’ hope I can get away with some Batiste on the roots to tide me over! eep!

For information, I plan to review my treatment and salon visit but I am in no way affiliated with the company. I purchased my treatment via a deal on Groupon : £59 – Conditioning treatment, cut, blow dry and brazilian blow dry.
