So with Glastonbury well and truly over, it’s official – we’re now in the midst of festival season. Festivals are awesome. Great music, great atmosphere and most of all, great food. Ok, maybe not so much the food, but they really do rock. Sure, the weather might not always be top notch, but who cares, that just makes it all the more fun right? Are you heading to any festivals this summer?
Continuing with the whole summer, festival theme, we have headwear. Last year, floral crowns were all the range. One might even say you were practically naked without one delicately placed upon your head. This year, however, it’s a little different, for there’s a new accessory in town. Ladies (and gents) say hello to the headdress. A slightly less subtle take on last summer’s trend, these bad boys certainly know how to jazz up an outfit, and rather well, I’ll add. Currently the ‘must-have’ piece of the blogging world, your attire is simply bland without one.
Although I do love a good Starbucks frappe from time to time, I don’t want to physically transform into one. To balance it out, I also happen to share a deep, meaningful connection with homemade smoothies. Healthy, energising and delicious – I can’t get enough. I personally like to add a cocktail of strawberries, blueberries, nectarines and raspberries (or any other fruit I can find) and finish off with greek yoghurt and flaxseed. Blend it up, and you’ll be thanking me later.
How I Met Your Mother
92.63% of the time, I much prefer tuning in to a movie over classic tv. Don’t ask me why, just view my Netflix account and you’ll see visible proof of this. Recently, however, I’ve found myself thoroughly enjoying a wee series called How I Met Your Mother. It is raaad. The last show I really got into was American Horror Story, and boy was that good too, but this is more on the light-hearted, funny side of things rather than the whole scary, sex every five minutes, kinda theme. Are you a fan?
Origins Drink-up Intensive Overnight Mask
Ok, so I’ve been a part of the Saint Kidd crew for just over a year now, so I’d say we’re pretty close, right? In that case, I’ve got a pretty great secret to share with you. A skincare secret. Sure, you may not exactly be jumping for joy at the topic of this said secret, but I think I may have possibly found the best skincare product ever. Really. My skin can sometimes get a little dry, be it from the sun, the heat, or the typical British breeze. Dehydrated skin, as I’m sure you’ll already know, is not only uncomfortable, but also a bad canvas for foundations and concealer. As much as you attempt to cover it up, your skin frustratingly rebels, and instead, attracts more attention to the problem area. …Enter the Origins Drink-up Intensive – a.k.a. the best facial mask ever. Apply a dollop over freshly cleansed skin, brush your teeth and hit the sack. In the morning, you’ll arise with a face as soft as a babies butt. Seriously – it rocks. Your skin basically ‘drinks up’ the product, leaving it hydrated, with no dry patches in sight. Can you tell I’m a fan?
Now tell me, what’s been rocking your boat this week?
