A rare pampering session and a wedding road trip

This week I did something I've never done before. I got my hair and makeup done for a night out (a wedding party), and it was a proper treat! I didn't even put that much effort in for my school formal, although there's a reason those photos have been banned for life!

I quite enjoyed getting pampered even though it's an oddly self indulgent experience. Luckily my hairdresser (Sharon from Stafford Hair) and MUA (Rebecca Bryson) are also my friends so it's just as much of a catchup and a gossip as it is a beauty session. 

The results as captured by Rebecca (go see her at Bexberry.co.uk) are fab!


And sure wasn't I being the selfie queen on the 2 hour trip to Donegal, just because I felt fab!



All ready to go and still holding up!
Cardigan and A-line Mesh Panel Skirt from Tesco both £3 in the sales, T-shirt from Primark and Shoes from Newlook. 

And lasted well through the night (even after a few vodka blackcurrents)

Awk you have to be good yourself sometimes don't you? Maybe next time I'll up my pamper game with my first ever facial or a massage! Stay tuned to find out!

Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems. This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take. And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low
