February: Wishlist

Wish lists, online shopping carts, and making lists for me are never ending. Weather they are make-up, hair, clothes, shoes, accessories, skincare, tools, toys, gadgets... I could go on but you get the picture right?

Don't get me wrong, at the top of the list are things like health, love, wealth and practical everyday and life things, but for today were talking about the superficial side of life. The colourful, bright fun side that make my obsessions grow and my bank account decrease.

Here's a peak into some of the things that are on the top of my current wish lists.


SKINCARE WISH LIST



GLAM GLOW: Supermud clearing treatment mask
MAC: Mineralize charged water moisturise
MAC: Prep + Prime line filler
PHILOSOPHY: Purity made simple facial  cleanser
PHILOSOPHY: Hope in a Jar facial moisturiser


My skin has been up in down in the way it's been acting lately. I have combination to oily skin that has recently been very dry around my chin/ cheeks area and I also have milla, blemishes and dark pigmentation from previous blemish scarring. Also as it's turned the new year that means another year older and getting into my mid 20 something's and worrying about things like fine lines and wrinkles! Eeekk!!!

In my wish list for skincare are things to help me keep blemishes at bay and keep my oiliness under control while also trying to moisturise to help with my extreme dry patches and finally my fine lines under my eyes that have recently gotten more pronounced.


MAKE-UP WISH LIST



NARS: Bronzing powder in Casino
NARS: Highlighting blush powder in Albatross
NARS: Pressed powder in Beach
NARS: Creamy radiant concealer in Custard
BENEFIT: Hello Flawless foundation in I'm so money honey.
BENEFIT: The POREfessional in agent zero shine powder
URBAN DECAY: Naked basics pallet
LAURA MERCIER: Silk creme foundation in medium ivory


My make-up wish list I think is the main list that is endless. It's my obsession, my love, my passion and my weakness. 15+ of the same product in different shades and by different brands... Arghhh, just give it too me now, please!! I could happily talk and shop for make-up all day long. On my days off or if I'm bored I just continue to search and add too my wish list.


FASHION ETC WISH LIST 



HAIR: Ombre and Extensions 
LOUIS VUITTON: Speedy 30
MICHAEL KORS: Blair Glitz
KAREN WALKER: Daisy ring
BELLAMI HAIR: 6 in 1 curling wand

Lastly is my wish list for materialistic things. My handbag collection is another area that proberly doesn't need added too yet I always find a replacement for. I haven't yet spend up large for a handbag quite as expensive as the one on my list here so really it could be a first? Or am I just making excuses for myself now? I've wanted this bag since forever so now just to save and get the beautiful bad boy!
QUICK FACT: My favourite youtube videos are the "what's in my handbag" types.
They are so interesting and to be honest, who doesn't want a noisy look into what other women carry around day to day? I haven't yet filmed one of these videos but think I will one day soon. Or at least blog it, since that's what I've been 'feeling' lately.

A Michael Kors watch because all mine are broken and I need one for work to keep an eye on the time and the running of the day. This gold one I'm wanting is come serious eye candy, yet still classic and beautiful that'll go with anything. Another item I've wanted for the longest time.

Hair curling tongs. Sometimes I want a bigger, more natural and messy or even tighter curls that I can't create with my GHDs. I have heard lots of good reviews about the Bellami Hair 6 and 1 curling wand so I need to get my hands on it and try it out!

Another Karen Walker ring because they are too cute too pass up! The Daisy ring is next on my list from this beautiful jewellery brand.

Lastly I need some new extensions in my life as my old ones are starting too matt up and are looking very old and dry. Can't wait to purchase new ones from foxylocksextensions.com . Also to get my ombre re-done. Mine has washed out so fast since I got it done because of how light my hair was previously and it's starting too look like I just have roots!! Let's freshen up!!!



I hope you enjoyed this look into my wish list beautys.
What top items are on your wish list?







Sundays Were Made For Pampering

Hi Beauty's!


Sundays = Pamper Sessions.



For me Sundays mean not only is it the end of the week were its time to relax, but it means a day off! Maybe for you Sundays are a day to recover from a hangover, get over the crazy, busy work week you just had. Family day or a day spent with God. It could even be the a start to your work / school week. Whatever the case I believe Sundays were made for pampering. Pampering that gets you ready to conquer your next week ahead.

So break out your nail polishes, face masks and comfy pants & welcome to my sunday sessions.

If my partner has Sundays off we usually have the day together watching movies, taking our dog for a long walk in the redwoods or disappearing on an adventure/ road trip away somewhere fun.

However if I have Sundays to myself I prepare for the week. My work week starts on Tuesdays so usually I clean my house, go for a walk with my dog Beau, then treat myself like a Queen.



My favourite things and recommendations for Sundays:


Cleanse Your Skin
I start by cleansing and cleaning my skin, using my clarisonic for a great deep clean. I can't recommend this product enough! It is defiantly a luxury skincare tool but if you save up and get one, you won't regret it!



Face Masks
Too follow up from cleansing your skin I like to put on a face mask. My skin in particular lately has been breaking out and I like to help it out by using a deep pore cleaning mask. Its perfect for pamper Sundays because it prepares your skin for the week.
Quick Tip: I like to put a face mask on before I hop into the shower so its eaiser to wash off.




Wash Your Hair & Put On A Hair Mask 
If you have crazy, curly, unruly hair that takes you 2hours to wash, blow-dry and straighten your hair then your days off are beyond perfect for this. I use several different products in my hair to help it get back into tip top shape after having bleach in it, so hair masks are essential. I smother my hair in one and let it sink in while I shave and exfoliate the rest of my skin.



Shave & Exfoilaite 
While waiting on purple shampoo to work its magic on your blonde hair or for your hair mask to soak in I occupy myself by exfoliating my skin using exfoliation mits followed by my new favourite product- Frank Scrub!!! It works wonders on making your skin baby soft and preparing your skin, follow this up with shaving your legs and underarms and voila!



Moisturize
When your out of the shower follow up by drenching your skin in moisturiser. Make sure its smells extra yum so it oozes out of your pores all day.
Quick Tip: Rub in and then layer moisturiser on your feet and cover them with big fluffy bed socks. This locks in the moister and keeps your feet soft and keeps that dry, flakey skin at bay.



Pluck Your Eyebrows
After the shower is the perfect time to pluck your eyebrows, this is because your pores are open after the heat and it tends to let the hair come out easier. I pluck out any stray hairs that ruin my makeup highlight and need to get off my face!



Blow-Dry & Style Your Hair
After my hair has air dried for a little while I add in all the products to save it from heat damage. Unfortunately I have to straighten my hair every time I wash it or it'll stay frizzy and knotty. So I finish it with a blow wave and a GHD finish.



Give Yourself A Manicure and Pedicure
My favourite part! My nails!!! I sit down and get some inspiration off pinterest of how I want to design my claws for the week.  Don't forget to start with a base code, use 2-3 coats of the colour your using then finish with a rapid quick dry top coat.




If I'm staying in for the day I then follow up with a few girly movies and chill out with my dog. Girly movies are the best and make me feel good by how cheesy and amazing they are!!!



But if I have plans and leave the house I take my time and put my make-up on for an hour or so... follow up with a few selfies and bamb! Hello new profile picture. Haha.



Treating yourself every now and again is important. Its a great way to make yourself feel better after a busy maybe even stressful week and I recommend a Sunday or "Day Off Session" to anybody, anyday.




HAPPY PAMPERING LADIES
