This month has mostly been spent eating and drinking lots!
Black and Blue Pasta from Frankie&Bennys. My favourite meal but annoyed that it is only on their lunchtime menu.
That also being the same night I thought it acceptable to walk home (a 2 minute journey) in my pyjammies.
I attended the Edinburgh Spa in The City day where many different beauty retailers gave free treatments and/or demonstrations from marquees erected in St Andrews Square. I initially wanted a Molton Brown facial but they were fully booked so opted for a Lush facial where you actually make the face treatment using fresh ingredients. As I had pre booked my treatment my goody bag was different from Yvonne and Jade’s and I was delighted to receive this Label M Split End Sealer. Haven’t really noticed a difference on my split ends but it’s great for adding texture to layers. Although all natural products were used my face definitely did not like the treatment and I took a reaction to it! My face was rather red, sore and hot for a few days but I’ve never heard of anyone else suffering like this. Just my skin being ridiculously sensitive again.
I didn’t know that Lush sell cosmetics – the coloured pigments are suitable for eyes/cheeks/lips apparently. The consultant spun the wheel and told me to choose the first 3 colours I was drawn to, she then picked accent colours. Each colour has a trait and mines were rather amusing! Ambition, Focus Motivation,Perspective, Sophisticated.
After Spa in the City I checked out the Bebaroque pop up shop where I lusted over the beautiful embellished tights
The month of May also saw me attempt my first PowerHoop class where you use a weighted hoop to enhance your core muscles and slim waists. All I’ve got to show for it is a very bruised middle section but I shall battle on in the hope it gives me a waist.
What have you been upto this past month? Have you ever taken a bad skin reaction to any products?
