Hi everyone, I'm back after a week in Sicily and I have some huge news...I'm engaged! The holiday was amazing and being proposed to made it even better. We are both thrilled about the whole thing. I've posted a pic of the ring but it's not that clear...silly camera I have is rubbish at focusing! But you get the idea...it's gorgeous! To be honest, I wouldnt mind what the ring looked like, I'm just happy to be marrying the guy of my dreams (very cheesy but true!)
Anyways, the temparature in Sicily was on average 34oC so I had to be super vigilant with the sunscreen, it was SPF 30 all the way. I managed to get a fantastic tan, probably the best I've ever had and I'm glad I did it in a safe way. The Joico hair products I mentioned in an earlier blog post worked wonders too and they have successfully shielded my hair from the blistering heat. My hair is in good condition and I can't see any damage at all. Result! So if you're heading on holiday, you should definitely check out that range (available on http://www.lookfantastic.co.uk/).
The one thing that I did notice after being in the sun was how much it affected the texture of my skin. It's usually very smooth but became very bumpy and generally quite dry. I have posted a pic below of the products that I will be using to get my skin back to it's former glory. From the first use, I noticed a huge difference in the softness and texture of my skin and I would highly recommend you use these products if your skin has been dried out by the sun. I am using St Ives Moisturising Body Polish which I have used all over the generally exfoliate and smooth out my skin I really like this product! Palmers Cocoa Butter as it's great for making your skin super smooth. I will also be using The Body Shop Retexturising Vitamin C face mask, which I have mentioned in my blog before...it's amazing for making your skin really smooth and soft and it peps up your complexion.
I have also bought the new John Frieda Sheer Blonde Tone Refreshing Shampoo and Conditioner just to freshen up my londe hair. I will let you know how I get on with that.
I will be going shopping tomorrow and I'm on the hunt for some YSL products and also to pick up some items for a swap so you can expect a post tomorrow about the goodies I get!
