I started off sugary, sweet and very saturated, now that I have lost all those qualities I'm left with something which starts to look a little more like me. It's a never-ending process of change.
Stick around?

Get ready with me: Bank Holiday/ Warm Day Out

I have something new and exciting for you today!
Since it was a such a lovely and sunny day today, I though I'd do a "Get Ready with Me" post to show you what kind of products I use in my shower, hair & skin care, hair styling tools along with make-up & outfit of the day! Enjoy, and be sure to let me know if you'd like to see more of such posts for different occasions?

Here we go!

Let's begin with showerrrr!
I always like to start with my Pro Voke Touch of Silver shampoo, I massage it into my head and leave it for couple of minutes. You can find the Pro Voke shampoo here: thhttp://www.boots.com/en/Touch-Of-Silver-Silver-Sensations-Shampoo-200ml_1047907/
Next after I wash the silver shampoo off I use another shampoo which is the Wella one from their Colour Preserve range, the reason I like to use two shampoos is, because they both do different things and I find my hair to look better& healthier when I use such combo.You can find the Wella shampoo here (I could only find it with the conditioner): http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wella-Color-Preserve-Repairing-Shampoo-and-Conditioner-Duo-33-8-oz-Each-/271107889252?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f1f4a1864
Of course finishing off with the Toni&Guy conditioner from their Nourish range, which I also like to leave in for a while. You can find the Toni&Guy conditioner here: http://www.boots.com/en/Toni-Guy-Nourish-Conditioner-for-Dry-Hair-250ml_1234295/
I use such random, products on my hair, nothing really is from the same brand, but it really works for me! Also I keep switching between hair products, because I'm still on the hunt for my ultimate holy grail shampoo&conditioner.

For my shower gel I just used Palmolive Damask Rose & Musk, not much to say about this except it smells like roses and doesn't dry the skin out. Not crazy about this to be honest.
Find it here: http://beauty.mysupermarket.co.uk/asda-compare-prices/bath_and_shower/palmolive_shower_gel_damask_rose_and_musk_250ml.html
I exfoliated my face with Ocean Salt Face Scrub from Lush, which is AMAZING (I'll do a seperate blog post on this). Find it here: https://www.lush.co.uk/product/306/Ocean-Salt-Facial-Scrub-100g
And I finished off with my Peaches and Clean facial cleanser from Soap&Glory, which smelss DIVINE. It's just a really lovely and soft cleanser, I like to use this after I've used a scrub, because it just makes my face feeling even more soft! Find it here: http://www.boots.com/en/Soap-Glory%E2%84%A2-Peaches-And-Clean%E2%84%A2-Deep-Cleansing-Milk-200ml_1214926/

& my super soft heart sponge is from TK MAXX.

Next comes the moisturiser! I love Body Shop's body butters, and that's all I really use on my body.
Here I have the Passion fruit one, which I use all over my body except for hands and neck area.
For my hands and neck area I use the shimmery coconut one, I love the glow it gives, and of course hands and neck are body parts that are normally exposed, so I'm enjoying the shimmer!
I believe the Passion Fruit was limited edition (at least it was when I worked there), but you can find the shimmer coconut here: http://www.thebodyshop.co.uk/bath-body-care/body-moisturisers/coconut-shimmer-body-butter.aspx

Now when my hair is towel dried, and still quite wet I go in with my EVA Leave in Conditioner (which I actually ran out from, so you'll see this in my empties at some point) it's just a nice leave in cream, nothing super shocking or amazing. (which I couldn't even find online).
And when my hair is a little more dry'ish, but still quite damp I use some of my Moroccan Oil (I also use it after I've styled my hair as a finishing touch), which is just a perfect product. I've featured it in my favourites, it's just the best. Find it here: http://www.lookfantastic.com/moroccanoil-light-treatment-100ml/10387667.html

At this point I'd paint my toe-nails just so they can dry out whilst I'm doing my hair and make up.
Here I've used beautiful fiery red called Snap Happy by Essie, which was from their limited winter collection and I'm actually running out of this as well :(. In which moment I'd like to take a second for Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Essie-2012-Winter-Collection-13-5ML/dp/B008V1I2MI

Hair styling:
I like to start of with the TRESemmé Heat Defence Styling spray, which you can find here: http://www.boots.com/en/TRESemme-Heat-Defence-Styling-Spray-300ml_14150/
Then I curl all my hair with Toni&Guy 38mm Jumbo Hair Tong, which you can find here: http://www.boots.com/en/Toni-Guy-TGIR1921UK-38mm-Jumbo-Hair-Tong_44024/
And then I use my Philips ProCare Keratin Straightener to style my fringe and smooth out the top layers of my hair. Find it here: http://www.philips.co.uk/c/haircare/230degreec-ceramic-keratin-hp8361_07/prd/
To finish off I apply a little bit of the Moroccan Oil I've used before and go trough the curls with my fingers.

Here's my finished hair and makeup!
Now the sweet outfit!
The Dress is from TFNC London, which was a gift a while back so I'm quite unsure about the price.
I don't think they stock, this particular one still, but check out their other range at: http://www.tfnclondon.com/
H&M Denim Jacket, which I got like 2 years ago and I think it was around £20
Green Sandals are from Urban Outfitters, and they were £22
H&M plated bag, which I also got last year for £12
The floral headband I bought in New Look last year for £7
And the Lip Butter is from Revlon and it's in the shade Sweet Tart

Lastly, Essies Funny Face on my nails!

Wow, that was a journey!
I've really enjoyed doing this Get Ready with me, please let me know if you like it.
