Garnier Hydration Hair Mask

Hola! After my vacation to Spain and ascertaining a high 2.1 in my degree, I can say with certainty that I am fully recharged and ready to start the next chapter in my life. And of course, with more free time (and less books to study from) I shall be focusing more time on my blog and other aspects to it too, which for me, is something that I have wanted to do since starting this blog last year. It has become my favourite thing to do and I've never been happier. So with my skin sun kissed and my skin feeling less congested due to the masses amount of Vitamin D, my hair however, has not exactly benefited from the sun. Prior to my holiday my hair was pretty hydrated and in good condition (well perhaps with the odd split end or two). But now the ends are slightly dry and brittle. I picked up the new Garnier Fructis Sleek Hydra Mask in Spain and I love it!

This hair mask intensely nourishes dry and hard to straighten hair. In just 1 minute, its formula with Phyto- Keratin (a form of protein) and Argan Oil on your hair will help to strengthen the fibres in addition to adding softness and shine. This product is perfect to take away with you on holiday, even if you just pop it in once or twice it will sincerely help protect your hair from the sun. After coming back from holiday it has improved the condition of my hair in such a short space of time, so if your are impatient like me, then product is perfect for you! You can buy this product from the Garnier website by clicking here.

Don't forget to treat your hair in the sun!
Much Love

Primark Haul

Well ladies and gentleman I am off to sunny Spain in a few hours! Woo. And of course like a true Brit girl I went shopping in Primark! Now just to let you all know, I am planning on creating a Look Book (both blog post and video) so that all of you can have a little nose at my 2014 Summer wardrobe. Some of the Primark goods you may see in the video may be in the Look Book (but I haven't decided what to include as of yet). But any who, I hope you all have a lovely week and the weather is good too! (apologise for the short post as I haven't packed as of yet!)

 Much Love

LUSH 2014: New Products & Favourites

Well you all know me, I'm that girl in the corner of your cyber world who is a die-hard LUSH fan. Everything about it I love, the products, the quirkiness, and most importantly, the smells! The scent in that shop is a cocktail of amazingness, if I could pile up at least 100 bath bombs in my room I seriously would. So with my LUSH stock running to an all time low, I decided to go on a massive splurge and boy... did I not feel the slightest bit guilty. Due to the sheer volume of products bought, I decided to put it all in a video for you all. This video contains both new and old products, so feel free to ask me any questions relating to any one of them as I am happy to help. So without further ado, enjoy the video! But firstly, let's briefly meet some of the new products mentioned:

Brightside- & so it is!
"When you're chewing on life's gristle, don't grumble, give a whistle! Hop in the bath with one of these uplifting bubble bars, Sicilian mandarin, bergamot and tangerine essential oils to help you look on the bright side of life! Its jazzy bright colours will create magnificent orange bath water, and the sunny citrus fragrance is sure to leave you jolly and refreshed".
Eltoria's thoughts: I am so happy that this bundle of joy stuck around after Easter. For me, Brightside is the perfect bubble bar to use throughout the Summer months as it is refreshing, revitalising and extremely nourishing on the skin. When you're next in LUSH give it smell, because you will be sold straight away!

Sakura makes a return!
"This is a celebration of spring in a bath bomb, bursting into a floral fragrance. Inspired by the cherry blossom in Japan, this pretty bomb is designed to evoke the burst of optimism the first sign of spring begins. We've used calming mimosa and jasmine oils complemented by lemon oil and orange flow to bring to mind the smell of this colourful season."
Eltoria's Thoughts: Oh wowee the smell of this one is just amazing! The bath bomb turns the water a pale pinky colour which is just fabulous for anyone who doesn't like anything too strong. So give it try because it's well worth the buy.

Mask of Magnaminity- it's not self preserving! (Sorry for the messy pot)
"A multi-purpose mask with a mixture of gentle yet effective ingredients to clean, calm and clear the skin. Easily smoothed over the skin, this mask is made with peppermint oil to stimulate, marigold oil and chlorophyllin to treat the skin; evening primrose seeds and aduki beans to gently ex-foliate as you remove it. You can use this mask anywhere" (even the back!). 
Eltoria's thoughts: This for me is the best facemask that I have ever used. When my skin is oily or dry, it seems to magic away any impurities or irritation that I may have. This facemask leaves the same sensation when you brush your teeth, minty, cool and fresh- shamazing!

The Kors brand can be described as American luxe and sportif chic which has become the 'go to' for modern women.
