Now that Spring is almost over, I wanted to share my favourite pastel shades I’ve been wearing on my nails. They’re all lovely ice cream colours and my favourite out of every season, so I’ll more than likely be wearing them throughout the year.

So I’ve been absent in the blogging world for a while once again, and it’s down to quite a few things! Shortly after my last post, I had an exam, which meant plenty of boring revision, then I went on holiday to Ibiza! Now I’m back I’ve got a post-holiday cold so all of my time being ill has given me an urge to get back to posting.

Now that my blog has been handed in to be assessed, I’m going to start posting about all things that I’m interested in, and won’t solely focus on beauty. It doesn’t mean there will be less beauty posts, as I’ll have the same amount. But there will be lots more things going on and I’m hoping to post more often than weekly!

I wanted to share something that was one of the highlights of my holiday, and that was the body paint my friends and I got done for Zoo Project. It looked amazing, and it’s something I’d definitely recommend. We went to Kiss My Fairy, that specialise in fancy dress and body paint for special events like Zoo. We all went for different styles and colours, and they turned out really well. If you weren’t wanting to pay for this look, it can easily be DIY’d. All you need is coloured spray for your hair, face paint, glitter and some body adhesive to help it stick. To stop it from smudging, using hairspray once it’s finished keeps it in place.

I’ve been using this hair treatment for the past couple of months, (I’m coming close to the bottom of the tub as you can see from above!) and the packaging says that “For really damaged hair, we recommend applying this once a week for six weeks”. I can now give a thorough opinion on this, after following the tip.

I walked into Lush, and one of the assistants pointed me in the direction of H’Suan Wen Hua (£8.50)a deep conditioning mask to treat damaged hair. My hair has had pretty much everything thrown at it, from bleach to a different hair colour every 6 months. I abuse it with blow drying, straightening and curling, so every now and again it could really use some TLC.

I’ve been slathering this on my dry hair once a week, covering it with a thick layer and leaving on for 20 minutes before washing it out, then shampooing and conditioning as normal. This stuff is quite amazing! I noticed a difference in my hair the first time I used it; my hair felt thicker, softer and brighter. I’m still using it now, as my hair is quite short naturally so I don’t need a lot to cover it.

There is one big downside to this hair treatment; the smell. It has a very, very, strong and questionable scent. It contains all, fresh and natural ingredients, but there’s a few I can definitely pick up on; egg, balsamic vinegar and cinnamon leaf oil. When mixed together it’s very pungent, which can be hugely off-putting at first. The smell also stays in your hair for the next day or so afterwards. It’s not a bad thing, as long as you can get used to it.

I definitely recommend this product as a good hair treatment, but not for the scent! When I was in the Lush store I was recommended another hair treatment, Marilyn, when my hair was ombred. I didn’t think it would be much use at the time, as only my ends were blonde, and that one was specifically for blonde hair. However, now I’m fully blonde, I think this will be the next hair treatment I’ll try, and from what I can remember, it smelled much better than H’Suan Wen Hua!
