Easy how to make avocado face mask

Sunday night calls for a pamper night! Yes it is the one evening I try my best to spend a couple of hours just relaxing… and what better way to to do that than with a face mask.

Me and my housemate are always experimenting new recipes but this time we went the extra mile and decided to try a nutritional recipe for your FACE. The veggie, considered as one of the healthiest foods on the planet, is not only enjoyed for it’s tastiness in guacamole but also known for it’s nutritional and healing benefits for skin.

Personally, I actually can’t stand avocado- but my ozzy housemate and everyone else i know love it! So I trialled on Sarah. The veggie deeply hydrates and nourishes skin without any irritation so it is suitable for all skin types – particularly dry and de-hydrated skin. It is also ideal for removing make-up!

This DIY at-home face mask is so easy to make with just three ingredients and three simple steps. This recipe makes enough for two masks.

Ingredients:IMG_1575

  • Half an avocado
  • 2 tsp of honey
  • 2 tbsp of water

Steps:

  1. Mash the avocado
  2. Stir all the ingredients together
  3. Apply over face

 

I decided to give this Passion deep cleansing face mask a go from Boots – thought I would treat myself on my loyalty card points and I’d never tried a peel off one before. As you can see… it comes out very different to how it looks on the packet. Instead of having a pretty light pink cream on my face, I actually just look heavily sunburned!! My skin did feel pretty soft afterwards though.

 

Have a go and see what you think with this super easy face mask recipe!

#MidweekManicure: Hand to Toe Shellac

I love love love having shellac nails- the varnish just keeps your nails looking fab and shiny for ten times longer than standard polish! That’s why I normally always get a shellac mani and pedi before any holiday so I know I won’t suffer from any bare or ugly chipped nails while i’m beaching it up. Unfortunately I’m not going anywhere abroad soon… instead the beauty pamper was an Easter present from my lovely mum and I decided to make use of it in preparation for my sister’s birthday celebration in Bournemouth.

I went for a bold coral shade on my fingers and peachy coloured toes… topped with glitter of course. I thought everyone who would be out on Saturday night would appreciate these summery statement nails because I just loved them.

I had already planned on wearing my peep-toe strappy heels so couldn’t resist designing my toes to sparkle the night away.  Pastel shades are the ultimate holiday paint and with a little glitter it can take them from the beach to the cocktail bar. You will definitely see these shimmering bad boys out for Ibiza this summer!

And if getting our nails done wasn’t enough pamper time for me and my sister, we treated our hangovers to a relaxing spa day at Norton Park in Winchester on the Sunday. We thought we deserved a massage and facial after all that dancing and champagne in Bournemouth. 😛

Hope you all have a lovely week!
