Guest Post: Make time for Me time

Hello. . This blog post has been created for a guest post which will feature on Coleoftheball

Im so obsessed with finding time for myself and being able to pamper myself . . im seriously a believer of making time for yourself whether it be an hour, a day or a few minutes . . you will instantly feel better when you've pampered yourself . .
My pamper night is a Friday and to be honest, it gets me through the week - I loveee seeing Friday because I spend the night getting ready for my Saturday night
So what does my pamper night consist of?
A hot bubble bath with lots of bubbles, candles and a magazine
I use my Soap & Glory exfoliator and Shower gel
Its then facial time - my favourite part. . I love getting all the dirt off my skin and out of my pores. . I use the Skin Truth products from Sallys beauty supplies . . these smell gorgeous and honestly leave my skin feeling super soft - I even use the brand on my clients when they come for facials
I then pop a facemask on and whilst it sets I go and make myself a cuppa, light more candles and turn on my spot lights - just to add some relaxation to the room
After 10 - 15 minutes I remove the face mask, then tone, then moisturise
I then pop on my teeth whitening strips and leave them on for around 45 minutes (only use whitening products once a week to make sure you don't cause too much damage to your teeth)
Its then time to do my nails - this takes up a bit of time but its worth it because I always feel better when my nails are done . . when there not painted I really feel euggghhhh - even my toes get done in Winter !!
I use nail products from the Skin truth range also . . Im usually a red kinda gal . . I love red nails because they are classy, timeless and go with everything . .
After my nails its time to spritz a little bit of coconut oil onto my pillow, put on a good DVD and kick back, relax and chill out !!xx

I hope this post has inspired you to take some time for yourself  to just chill out & relax

How to: Spring outfit

Hi everyone !! ..
Now that the nights are getting brighter, the weathers getting a bit warmer & the shops are looking more colourful I decided I would create a very Spring outfit to give you some inspiration for your next night out. .
Im a big fan of colour, even in the winter I enjoy mixing colour into my wardrobe whether it be pink coloured tights or a green handbag . I just love a pop of colour :-)
So I went online and put together this outfit with items I found . .I have an outfit very similar at home so wanted to recreate the look to give you all a bit of inspiration.
Ive chosen a pink blazer, off white peplum lace top, a floral skort and pink strappy court heels. I decided on pink to help bring out the pink flowers on the skort. .
For hair & make-up I would go for a sleek hair do, tied up in a pony with a funky twist at the front teamed with a smoky eye & bright pink lippie. . I know they say to never go for smoky eye and lip but I don't follow this rule because I love a colourful eye teamed with a bright lippie. . I have tried to go with a simple lip but I just don't like the look . .I like dramatic lips lol. .
Tip: to add some length to your legs add some highlighter & body oil along the shins and add some highlighter to shoulders & collarbones for a healthy natural glow . .
Whats your spring / summer make-up tips ? x
