The Friends Set

The Friends Set

Oh my was I excited for this! My amazing friend Hayley surprised me with a trip to London to see the friends set. I was so excited before… On the day… During and after.

It was in Haggerston Park, there was a huge stage, and different sections like a shop, central Perk.. The boys apartment and cocktail bar, Monica’s apartment, Diner etc. It’s £24 a ticket per person and the tickets sold out really quick!

Here are a few pictures from the day…

I didn’t get many pictures without us guys in the picture but the girl to the left (bottom picture) is my friend Hayley, (I’m next to Hayley) and Rose is on the left. They’re such amazing girlies and had such a wicked day with them! Really want to do it all over again. It was great to spend the whole day with Friends fans! The food in the Diner was good too.. I had a pulled pork burger.. Amaze!

If Friends Fest is back next year I 100% recommend it if you love friends! You also won’t be out of place quoting the random Friends scene haha. X

Garnier Body Intensive 7 Day

Garnier Body Intensive 7 Day

I’m very fickle when it comes to moisturiser, if it’s non greasy, smells good and moisturises I’m pretty happy. I bought this on one of my very rare trips to Boots (haha…) and I picked it up as it was on offer. I got the one for dry skin, not because I have particularly dry skin but because it has mango oil in it and it smelt good. It really does smell good, reminds me a bit like sun cream but not as strong.

It claims to give you moisture for 7 days, I’m not sure about that though as I wash every day so not sure how to judge that side of the product. I moisturise every time I have a shower and I don’t necessarily feel like I need to. Perhaps if I had dry skin I would notice the difference. Although it does have a little * by this claim which says “after twice daily application for 4 weeks. It also says it is fast absorbing which I 100% agree with. I popped some on the other and put skinny jeans straight on without that horrifying feeling of sticky legs. (Cringe).

It also got approval from the very fussy other half when he used it on his hands… So that alone is saying something haha.

L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox Mask 

L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox Mask 

As mentioned in my last post I said this was the mask I couldn’t wait to try next but was out of stock. Well I finally got my grubby little mitts on it and oh my… It smells gooooood! If you’re sensitive to smells this probably isn’t for you but it really does have an “mmmm ahhh” effect and if you don’t like the smell, the mask is that good that it’s worth dealing with.

The packaging is really sturdy and I like that it’s a pot, I usually use the plastic lid that’s inside to scoop some out to save dipping my hands in. The glass jar looks quite nice in the bathroom cabinet too.

It applied really nicely, smoothly and a little does go a long way. Especially if you do the multi masking that L’Oreal have been promoting. To be fair I don’t think I would ever have the motivation to use more than one mask at a time.

It dried evenly, and I could really see the oils being pulled out of my pores, it’s disgusting yet amazing.. If you like that sort of thing. The mask claims to detoxify and exfoliate and I agree!

Taking the mask off was probably the best part, it didn’t take ages like some I’ve tried and with a warm wet face cloth it just eased off, I didn’t have to tug at my face to get the last few dry bits, and my skin felt really soft after.

I have tried the mask a few times now and I am really enjoying using it, I still need to try the Purity Mask from L’Oreal but I don’t feel in a rush to buy it as I think I will be using this for awhile.

Have you tried it? If so let me know in the comments or feel free to find me on Twitter 🙂 @lucyluvsbeautyx

Hope you’re all well, and I know I haven’t posted in awhile. I struggle to have motivation for anything in August! No excuses I know! Thank you for sticking around 😘

L’Oreal Pure Clay Glow Mask 

L’Oreal Pure Clay Glow Mask 

I saw this in Boots, and it was the one that stuck out. They had a few there and they all look good but this mask claimed to exfoliate and brighten. It did have a big sign next to the masks saying all about multi masking.. Who has time for that?! Anyway I bought this one and it didn’t disappoint. It does exfoliate as it has micro beads in.

The colour is quite cool too and the smell isn’t offensive. Not as nice smelling as my LE ones… But this is a nice mask. It certainly brightened my skin and gave it a boost.

Was easy to apply, and wash off for a clay mask. I didn’t get any redness or stinging etc which is a winner in my book. I hate looking like a tomatoe after a face mask. It was on offer in boots too for £5 but even full price which I believe is £9.99 I would definitely buy it again to mix up with my others. Although I do have enough to be going on with for now.

My Current Everyday MakeUp

My Current Everyday MakeUp

I have been rather lazy with my make up the last couple of weeks but it’s been so muggy and hot who wants loads of foundation and a cut crease?! (Well actually I do but I can’t be arsed haha)

I’ve been using this Tinted Moisturiser by Nivea which is perfect for those hot days, it has SPF 15 in, gives just enough coverage and doesn’t feel heavy… Also I’ve been applying it with my fingers so been giving my buffing brush a break. To give my under eyes an extra boost I’ve been applying the Rimmel Wake me up concealer, I love this concealer!!

To purely save time I have been using my Sleek FaceForm contour kit, the bronzer to make my face have shape and a bit of blusher. I haven’t even been bothering with eyeshadow so just a splodge of Benefit Rollerlash mascara, then I whack a bit of the powder from the Sleek Brow kit through my slugs and a dab of 8 hour cream and I’m out the door…

Just don’t want to waste time painting my face when I can be playing Lego, play dough or in the garden with my lad haha.

Anyway, just wanted to add a little note: I’m sorry I haven’t been posting up, I do work a job and a mum (I know many bloggers do it too) but I don’t want to be sitting there writing posts during the day I would much rather be playing and having fun and in the evenings that’s when I pamper up and catch up on TV and spend time with my man. I will be posting but it’s impossible for me to post every day 🙂 that said I LOVE blogging and it helps me relax. Xx

Currently Loving – Top 5!

Currently Loving – Top 5!

I thought I would chuck a little post together telling you what I’ve been loving lately! 

I’ve done a blog post on these but I really love them, and my hair feels so nice! It’s the Boots Fresh and Nutty Coconut Shampoo and conditioner. It’s so clarifying and smells incredible! Feels like such a treat when I use these. The conditioner definitely rivals my expensive deep conditioners. 

Nivea Tinted Moisturising Day Cream, this was quite a new addition but I bought it a few weeks ago and used it every day since. It’s so light but gives me just enough coverage. It also smells really nice but so strong that it makes me breakout. 

Essie cute as a button nail polish, this has to be my 6th or 7th bottle I love it, always my go to when I don’t know what colour to have on. My mum loves this colour too! It’s just a great polish and Essie do make some good ones! I have also been loving stay yummy which is a red but a deep red (I think I subconsciously want Christmas haha) 

As mentioned before I am always finding ways to relax and this unicorn colouring in book is ideal, mainly because it has unicorns but I love colouring in too whilst I watch TV. Instead of being on my phone I try and do something else. 

I know so many people that have mentioned this game but I had to get it to see what the fuss was about (no not Pokemon..) but Best Fiends. It’s so addictive and not as annoying as Candy Crush.. Although I did spend £1.49 for gold bars to get through a level because I just wasn’t doing it haha that was a 3am induced purchase though and regretted it straight away!
