Happy Valentines Day!!
I am the least Valentines person ever! I am such an affectionphobe, I hate cuddles and kisses… Seeing PDA’s and would just rather another person and their slushy self wouldn’t come into my space because it freaks me out but that doesn’t mean I’m opposed to love because I think it can be a wonderful thing. Now although I do think Valentines day is a massive money making holiday who can really get mad at a holiday that celebrates chocolate, flowers, hearts and love whether you are with someone or not there are loads of things you can do to make you feel loved up or at least love yourself on the most self indulgent day of the year… No more feeling lonely!.
Now I shall be spending tonight with my favourite man and thought I would compile a little getting date night ready and then post a valentines FOTN over the next couple of days. I’m going to break it up into four sections of Bath, hair, make up and fragrance.
Sometimes I can be a simple soul and love simple scents when I’m getting ready for a night out or a date night because I love for whatever fragrance I’m going to be wearing to be the centre of attention that’s why I have chosen the Shea range from The Body Shop which includes the Body Scrub, Shower Cream and Beautifying Oil which are all firm favourites of mine and have been mentioned in previous blog posts.
The Beautifying Oil is the show stopper here though with it’s non greasy moisturising properties and soft subtle scent, I also find it makes perfumes really last and hold their smell for a very long time when applied before spraying.
For my hair I want to create a nice smooth wave because of the weather we have been having, I can’t go full on straight as it will king and become a frizz ball and I can’t have it natural as the wind and moisture in the air shall make it become highly uncontrollable.
To create my desired look I am going to treat my hair with Schwarzkoptf Repair Rescue Shampoo and then use the Oil Miracle Gold Shimmer Treatment which leaves my hair feeling and looking absolutely amazing (blog post to come).
After washing I shall be applying my VO5 Miricle Concentrate and blowdrying my hair as straight as I can and then use my Cosmopolitan Wavers to create my desired waved look, to finish this off I shall spray a bit of my beloved Schwarzkoptf Sparkler shine spray and a bit of Tresemme Hairspray to keep it in place.
My make up shall be kept simple with a bright lip which seems to be my trademark look, I shall use my Revlon ColourStay to create a flawless base with my Naked Palette creating a soft neutral smoky eye with a flick of eyeliner and tons of mascara.
My blusher shall be kept simple with Benefit Hervana and MAC Soft & Gentle as a highlight and my lips shall pop with one of the Rimmel Apocalips in Stellar.
My chosen scent shall be Stella by Stella McCartney just for it’s gorgeous scent and the fact it would be the perfect addition to my night.
How shall you be spending your Valentines?
