I would be lying if I said I didn't wake up on a morning wishing I like a bronzed goddess. I am one of those people who forever chases their tan once I come back off holiday. I don't seem to maintain a tan very well, so I tend to use self tanners whenever I want to look sun-kissed.

In fact I am a little bit fake tan obsessed. I love how I can give my skin an instant bronzed glow. I have tried and tested lots of different tanning products over the years and I have to say I have my favorites. I have a list of top tans I tend to stick to in order to avoid any embarrassing you look like you've been tangoed instances. So what I am trying to say is that I do tend to stick to what I know until I received a new tanning product from Palmer's a couple of weeks ago.

Palmer's do some amazing natural products. The thing I love about their products is that they do not contain any nasties and they use fair trade ingredients.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Natural Bronze Body Lotion - £5.69:

I cannot believe I have found a new favorite tanning product. This is such an incredible product at a fraction of the cost of a lot other tanning I like  to use. The formula is a super creamy moisturising lotion which combines cocoa butter and vitamin E to deeply nourish the skin. The thing that's amazing about this product is that its two in one as it not only gives you the perfect golden goddess glow but keeps your skin in tip top shape also. I love the colour that this product gives my skin as its a natural bronze tone so you look like you have just come back from a holiday abroad. I like to use this product daily to build up the colour but also because it keeps my skin moisturised. This is the perfect product to use when you come back from a holiday to try and maintain your tan. I also love the smell of the product as you smell like you've bathed in coconut milk rather than smelling of ginger biscuits.

I love this product and know you will to. If you interested in trying this product it is available from both Boots and Superdrug.

If your anything like me and love washing your hair but dread having to dry it afterwards then I may have found the perfect product for you!. 

I have weave which means my long thick blonde locks need drying every time I wash my hair in order to keep my extensions in tip top condition. The days before I had a weave I would do just about anything not to dry my hair as it always seemed like such a chore. If I had discovered  this gem of a product back then I would have always dried my hair. 

I received a parcel in the post a couple of weeks ago from Batiste and I was super excited when the parcel contained their new Speed it Up Blow Dry Accelerator sprays. 

There are three different sprays in the range:
  • Smoothing - Containing nourishing Baobab Oil smooth out your hair from root to tip - (turquoise bottle)
  •  Frizz Taming - Formulated with Tamanu Oil to defrizz your locks - (Purple bottle)
  • Shine - Enriched with Ginseng to give you shiny and lustrous locks - (Pink bottle)
They all smell absolutely incredible and I was amazed at how much quicker my hair dried. The spray claims to dry your hair 30% faster and it didn't disappoint. The amazing thing about these sprays is not only do they help you dry your hair so much quicker but they also contain a heat protector to stop any of your hair tools damaging your hair. The heat protector built into the sprays can help protect  the hair from heat damage up to 230°c. I also love the fact you really don't need to use a lot of this product as a little goes a long way. I tend to use around 6-8 sprays across all the different sections of my hair which considering how thick / long my hair is this isn't a lot of product. 

These amazing sprays are only £4.49 each and for the amount of time they have saved me they are well worth the money. I think this is such an amazing price for quality of this product. I am in love with this product and couldn't imagine blow drying my hair without this now. I love the fact their is a spray for everyone as they cater for different hair types. 

Which spray would you like to try?

Hey everyone long time no speak!. It has been a while since I have took time out to sit down and write a blog post. Life seems to have gotten in the way and I have took time out to focus on filming for my YouTube channel but I am back with a bang and some amazing hair care you guys need to know about.

You may or may not know depending on whether you guys follow me on YouTube or not I decided to get hair extensions back in December. I have always wanted super long hair and over the years due to me repeatably bleaching my hair blonde it has faced some damage. So last year I made the decision to get a decent amount of it cut off in order for it to grow back longer, stronger ect. So with all the said when having hair extensions you have to make sure you look after the hair because in my opinion what's the point in spending all the money getting them fitted if your not going to look after them?!

So a couple of months ago a package turned up on my door containing some hair care products from a company called Maui Moisture. I had never tried their products before although I had seen their products in passing when shopping in Superdrug. I have to admit I have always thought the packaging looks super pretty and it always made me want to be on a beach in Hawaii (I WISH!!).

I was lucky enough to be sent their Revive and Hydrate Shea butter collection including shampoo, conditioner and a hair mask. All the products in the range retail for £8.99 per item and the range smells absolutely incredible!. The main the reason the range appealed to be also is because the range doesn't contain any nasties. Their products are free from a lot of things such as silicones and sulfates. The range is also vegan. 

Revive and Hydrate Shea Butter Shampoo - RRP £8.99:

I love the consistency of this shampoo as it lathers just enough as I find sometimes sometimes shampoos are too soapy. It contains aloe vera which leaves the hair feeling super moisturized and thirst quenched. 

Revive and Hydrate Shea Butter Conditioner - RRP £8.99:

I love the creamy texture of this conditioner and my hair feels silky soft after using it. The mixture of different oils used in this product such as coconut, Shea butter and macadamia really help to deeply nourish the hair. It leaves hair super soft and not at all greasy.

Revive and Hydrate Shea Butter Hair Mask - RRP £8.99:

This hair mask is the bomb. I am in love with it, it literally leaves your hair in tip top condition. Its the perfect texture for a mask and is super creamy to help nourish the hair. Whenever I use this I feel like it really penetrates the hair to ensure every strand is left conditioned. I like to apply this on dry hair about half an hour before I am going to get into the bath/shower to let it really sink into the hair. Then I get into the bath/shower and rinse my hair. I then follow with my normal shampoo and conditioner routine. 

Which hair care brands do you guys love?

Did I Achieve My Goals For 2017?

Leave a Comment
 So at the beginning of last year I set myself some goals to achieve and thought I would update you guys with how I did with them and what I achieved. 

If you want to watch my goals for 2017 video click the link below:

So lets get into this!, I thought I would write down the list of my goals below and go through whether I achieved them or not!

  1. Pass my driving test- I am so unbelievably happy I managed to achieve this one. After years of trying I finally did it and I really don't know how I would manage without being able to drive now!.
  2. Graduate from University- So as some of you will know I decided to go to university to study to become a teacher but then life sort of got in the way and it changed how I felt about what I wanted to do in life. It got to my final year and I really struggled through passing my dissertation which I needed to do in order to graduate with honours. I have finally done it!. I decided that even if its no longer what I want to do, I have put to much work in not to complete the course. I resat my dissertation and passed so now if I do decide its something I want to do in the future I have it as a back up. 
  3. Get motivated to achieve my goals - After a tough year of ups and downs I feel like this one was a hard one to achieve as it was hard to stay motivated every day. I think the with this goal its just more about staying focused and keeping my eye on the prize! - I feel like this is something that needs to be ongoing into 2018.
  4. Get a new Job - This is one of the goals I am most proud of achieving as I did actually get a new job working at Marks and Spencer as part of their specialist selling team. I have then moved into the bakery and worked super hard doing all sorts of shifts at all hours to get the job I really wanted. I then got offered full time on their Beauty counter which is something I have decided I want a career in. Beauty is my passion and its the sector I want to create a career for myself in. 
  5. Lose weight - This is one that has been hit or miss!. I have an unhealthy relationship with food and when I get down in the dumps I eat, when I have a reason to celebrate I eat. I did lose a stone this year but have since regained that weight. I have decided that I need to make a lifestyle change rather than dieting. I need to start and make an effort to eat healthier and exercise plus drink lots of water. I am determined to do this in 2018!
  6. Keep a diary- Nothing much to say about this other than the fact I completely and utterly failed 😅
  7. Grow my following and regularly upload content- I feel like this is something I have massively improved on. I do have a long way to go and I do want to try and put out more content!
I feel like I did a really well in trying to achieve these goals and I cant wait to set my goals for 2018 and see what I can achieve this year. I just get this feeling that this year is my year!

What where your goals for 2017 and did you achieve them?

Thats all for now .... Amber xox
