June 2015 FavouritesWednesday, July 15, 2015
How on earth has it got to Mid-July already? This year is flying by far too quickly. My June flew buy as I spent half of it in Lanzarote and I’ve mentioned my holiday far too many time already on this blog and I’m starting to bore myself talking about it. I’m already lusting for the next break.
OGX Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner
I’ve been reading so many positive things about these products and I am in love. I got the shampoo in a beauty box and it annoyed me as I’m one of those people who likes to use matching shampoo and conditioner. I decided to bite the bullet and buy the matching conditioner in boots.
I feel like this is what I’ve been looking for as far as shampoo and conditioner goes. I’m not going to repurchase at the moment as we have so many products on the go but I’m keeping my eyes peeled for any special offers and I’m sure I’ll end up with the full size sooner rather than later.
Sanctury spa body scrub and beaded shower gel
These were part of the huge Christmas box I got in the boots Christmas sale and I was saving it for best but if I do that nothing will ever get used. Up. I really like the smell of these which is unusual for me. It’s really refreshing and it doesn’t linger in a powerful way. I feel like the beads in the showergel aren’t needed and are a bit early 90s. I was using the scrub pre-holiday and it was pretty effective.
Elixir treats and tonics
I went for an afternoon out in Manchester for a friend’s birthday and we spent quite a bit if time in Elixir having birdcage cocktails, we got to sit outside under a bit of a cover and they have the most amazing loo’s.
My work is trying to make things fun and exciting and they decided to get on board with national donut day which I’m pretty sure is an American thing but we had 24 donuts between 5 of us and we managed it. We had a crazy five mins divvying up the left overs before home time.
I couldn’t not mention it, I had such an amazing fortnight. Shadebathing, reading books, going shopping (a lot) eating good food. I would whole heartedly recommend going to Lanarote for a holiday and I have a few more holiday posts planned. I have a huge holiday haul I need to take pictures of and get written up.
One of the best moments of the holiday was going to the café on the 17th floor of the Aricife Gran Hotel. The view was stunning and it’s made me want to stay at that hotel next time I go (It was nothing to do with the poster advertising Gin tastings at all!)
Over all June has been a pretty good month and I’m sure there were a lot of other things I wanted to mention but I think we’ll leave it there for now
