Hey there, I decided today to have a bit of a pamper day. I have never had one of these just because I don't know I've never really thought about it. Today was very productive I did all my homework and even a little bit of study, so I finished up early and decided to have a pamper evening. I did a blog post yesterday (and if you have not read that it's just after this one) but because I haven't blogged in like three weeks, I decided to do another one.
So, from eleven o'clock this morning to like four o'clock (I had a break in between) I was doing homework and revision, so I was pretty productive for me anyway.
Whenever I've had a stressful day I love to relax by having a shower, I don't think anything in the world will ever feel as nice as a shower. It's just a great way to relax, and as a bonus you smell great! Some people like to have their shower before their productive day, but personally I like to have it after because it means I can just relax and take my time with everything.
- I condition my hair first using the L'Oreal Paris Elvive Smooth Intense Anti-Frizz Conditioner. I know conditioning your hair first before shampooing may sound weird (unless you do it) but honestly it makes washing my hair that little bit easier, it tames my hair. I have extremely frizzy/curly hair and I find that conditioning it first softens it and makes it easier to shampoo.
- I wash my hair with the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Shampoo. I love this shampoo so much, because I find it so easy to lather and I feel like it makes my hair really soft, and it smells so amazing! I wash my hair every three/four days and on day three/four I can still smell the shampoo, which is amazing!
- I wash my body using Soap & Glory Foam Call. I love this so much, it's so soapy and smells amazing! The smell lasts a really long time and its just great!
- I wash my face with Nivea Gentle Cleansing Cream Wash. This is tailored for people who have dry skin, and let me tell you it is amazing! It leaves my skin feeling so soft and I can't get enough!
- On Sunday, I use Simple Kind To Skin Smoothing Facial Scrub. This leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean! It's amazing.
When I'm having a comfy/lazy day I love wearing pajamas and having a no makeup day! The top is from River Island and the bottoms are from Penneys/Primark. Excuse how bad my skin is lately, I'm having the worst breakout and also my eyebrows badly need to grow back! SO please excuse.
My favorite scent is the Zoella Let's Spritz. I love this so much! It is perfect for this time of year, it is from her Tutti Fruity Range it is just beautiful. Nothing is better than smelling amazing.
My friend got me a a facemask ages ago, I've never used one before and I didn't use half enough product as I was supposed to but that's okay I'll know next time. I used the 7th Heaven Creamy Coconut. I love this because even though I only used a little bit my skin felt so moisturized and soft. I left it on for fifteen minutes. And to add it was so relaxing and calming.
Painting My Nails
Unfortunately I am really bad at painting my nails, but nevertheless I still love painting them! I used this beautiful silver by Rimmel London in 239 Your Majesty. Can we just take a moment to appreciate that name! I love it! This color is so beautiful, I can't get enough! Painting your nails can be such a relaxing and calming thing, and I love it.
I have incredibly dry hands, and showering can make my hands so dry so I use my trustee Zoella Wonder Hand (I have a review on this if you would like to read, after this of course: http://lookitsfifi.blogspot.ie/2016/01/zoella-wonder-hand-moisturising-hand.html ). I love Zoe so much, and all of her products that I have! I cannot wait to get my hands on her new range Sweet Sensations. This hand cream is so moisturising and amazingly scented. I can't get enough! It makes my hands feel so luxurious and they smell amazing.
Lounging around and relaxing is my favorite thing to do, I love it. After dinner I treated myself to Zoe's
(I have mentioned her so much throughout this post, I love her) new video! Please excuse how low quality that photo is, you can even see me through it which is really embarrassing but what can you do. I made some Chamomile Tea which heads up I don't like, I just said I'd try it because I've never tried it before.
Lighting candles is so realxing, and slightly romantic and I am a romantic person I love everything like that! I feel like it adds a really nice atmosphere and it's so relaxing.
One of my all time favorite books is The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. I have read this three times already, I LOVE IT. Reading is something I have loved since a child, now I'm so busy with school I don't get the time to read as much as I would like.
Enjoy your day!
This morning when I was contemplating having a pamper day or not I was questioning if I deserved it. Honestly I haven't done much revision yet (which is so bad) so I was like really Fiona you shouldn't be taking ANOTHER day off. However it's not like I took a full day off, because I was working from eleven to four on school work (I'm still not finished) but I found myself getting really anxious and just blah, so I just did it.
Honestly I felt a little bit selfish doing it as well, but you know what I've never in my life done anything like this, and it was so nice. I could just relax for a few hours and it was lovely. I would highly recommend it if you have not yet tried it. You deserve it, it is important to take breaks and relax! It's good for you.
Thank you for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post. This is probably the last you'll be seeing of me on here until the end of June, just because I have exams really soon. I do have my social medias which you can follow me on if you like. Twitter: @ lookitsfifi Insta: @ http.lookitsfifi Snapchat : fifimc99
Until then, best of luck in exams if you have them and stay strong.
Lots of Love,
