Superdug Online

Lovelies, I found myself in a quandary the other day. I had no body moisturiser. I had 3 bottles of shower gel, 2 tins/cans of deodorant and no body lotions or creams, not even a spare body butter left over from winter.  

To make up this shortfall I ordered some of the Garnier Beauty oil moisturiser  along with 2 Pantene Pro-V Hair serums from the Superdug  via the website. I must commend the service. the ordering process is very simple and easy and the goods are delivered promptly. All in all it has been one of the better online shopping experiences I have had, and I hate online shopping. Also superdrug offers free delivery to store and you can choose which store you would like your items delivered. 

Superdrug online is a winner.

Spring Scents: Nina Ricci, Davidoff, Sanctuary, Ralph Lauren, Vera Wang

I've rotated my clothing, skincare and now my fragrances. These are all perfumes that I already in my collection, the Nina Ricci is the only new edition.
My taste in fragrances lean mostly toward citrus and floral scents.  This means that I have a great range to choose from when it comes to perfumes.  

Vera Wang, Sanctuary, Nina Ricci, Ralph Lauren, Davidoff

The Davidoff cool Water Wave is an EDT I use this along with the Sanctuary Body spray for work. They are very light, great for perking up my mood, however they do not last very long. I keep these scents going with top up spritzes throughout the day.

Very Wang - Lovestruck Floral Rush I wrote a blog post about this fragrance last summer. This is an EDP great floral fragrance, which lasts all day ( prefer to touch up around 3pm).

Ralph Lauren - Romance I love this perfume, it is one of my absolute favourites. (I already bought a backup). 

Nina Ricci- Ricci Ricci this is the new kid on the block. This scent is a bit heavier/muskier than the others, I will using this in the evenings. 

My spritzes for 2014 Spring/Summer.

Love Your Hair Challenge Phase 2

Hey guys I know I know I have not written a hair post for w a while. I am still interested in growing my hair healthier and retaining more length. I have joined the Kibibi Love Your Hair Challenge which is now in its second phase. This phase will last for three months (finishes June 30th). The aim of this phase is to retain 1 inch of hair. 

The Rules during this stage of the hair challenge are as follows:
- Moisturise - I will continue to moisturize and seal my hair twice weekly, on Thursday and Sunday evenings. 
- Protect - My forms of protective styling will be buns and pin up styles for the firs two months of the challenge.  Then I will wear my hair in braids as a protective style during the last month/4 weeks of phase 2.
- Growth Aids - if you follow my blog you will already know that I am committed to two things, Cod Liver Oil/ Flaxseed oil  and water. I have a bottle of Flaxseed oil capsules at the moment (enough for three months) I will continue taking 2 of these capsules daily, these will serve as my hair growth aid.
- Before and After pictures 


- Exercise - I walk to and from work every day and i am fairly active. However I am prepared  to amp up my exercise regimen preparing the summer body and all of that, lol.

The Boudoir: Butterflies for Spring

I am pretty sure the last time I bought new bedding was in 2008. 
 It was a duvet set with green background and cream/brown designs all over it from John Lewis. It was 100 cotton, thick and lovely fabric. Ok back to present day, I needed a new duvet, since the one I currently own is years old (easily between 5-7 years old). 
I went to Primark on my duvet hunt and left with not only a new duvet,  2 new memory foam pillows and 2 new sets of bedding/linen. 

the first duvet set I bought this lovely duvet set it has a cream background with pink and purple butterflies. 

The full effect 
Butterflies up close


There is just something about a well made bed, that makes me feel relaxed.
 I can just forget about the stresses at work/uni and have a nap. 

Have a great day my lovelies.

Spring/ Summer Haul: GAP

The GAP is one of those stores, where I never quibble about paying for clothing. 
It is not the most trendy/fashionable place to shop, I will be the FIRST to admit. 
However, one thing about clothing from the GAP is that once you take care of it, it will last. I have fond memories of saving up  weeks of my paper round money and going to the GAP to buy clothes in the sale. Some of those items I still wear them today. All of my work trousers are from the GAP, and you have seen them several times in various posts. 
Trends come and go, a basic item can be stylish forever. Less is more and all that, moving onto the haul. 

Modern Boot - Irish Cream Green
Linen Shirt - White
Slim Cropped Double Weave Pants - Mulberry
Slim Cropped  double Weave Pants - Deluxe Green
Bowery Supersoft Boatneck T-Shirt - White
Pleated Print Skirt - Red/Navy

I will be putting a few looks together with clothing from this haul, along with other items from my wardrobe. Some of the clothing you might have seen before in previous posts, other items I might have never posted on the blog. 

I purchased 2 classic trench coats  from the GAP last November, they will be featured in their own W. W. W. posts soon. 

*whispers* Barack Obama was spotted shopping at the GAP in Manhattan earlier this month. What other reason do I need to love this store? lol lol 

Be Stylish my lovelies.

Braid Maintenance: Products I Have been using to maintain my braids

For the last three months, I have had my hair in braids. Originally I braided my hair as a protective style against the snow. The snow which has yet to arrive. Though I have had my hair "protected" I have still been carrying on with my healthy hair regimen. 

Below are the three main products I have been using:

ORS Creamy Aloe Shampoo
ORS Oil Moisturising Hair Lotion
Infusium 23 Pro-Vitamin Leave In Hair Treatment (the same bottle from way back when, lol) 

I decant my Infusium 23 into a spray bottle for easier application. 

Have a great hair day my lovelies.
