Coconut oil for beauty?

Wednesday, 29 June 2016

I've started to use coconut oil!. yes I know how Did I not get on this band waggon until now but truthfully I never realised their was so many uses and I was a little terrified of putting oil on my face, as you know oil is always something we're supposed to get rid of or balance out. However,  I really wanted to see what the hype was about. So I picked myself up a jar from Holland and Barrett and I'm giving it a go!.

What can It be used for?

Cleansing

You can use coconut oil as a make up cleanser. I know the sound of putting oil on your face doesn't  sound great. But give it a try. The coconut oil has anti bacterial properties as well as that it makes an amazing moisturiser so you may be pleasantly surprised. You'll need a couple teaspoons of coconut oil, a nice warm flannel.

So how you do this is take the coconut oil and start massaging it into your face for about 30 seconds, then take your warm cloth and place it over your face to open up your pores around 20 seconds and then gently remove the oil using the cloth. and voila a nice fresh hydrated face!.


Moisturising

Coconut oil has amazing moisturising properties. If you want to go a bit more Au Natural with your moisturiser coconut oil is an amazing start. It sinks in so quickly and makes your skin feel super smooth and hydrated. And it smells super nice too!.

Leave in conditioner

This is by far my favourite one. After a shower or hair wash I take a tiny bit of coconut oil and run it through my damp (towel dried) hair. This has made my hair look healthier and feel so smooth. I'm trying to grow my hair so if anyone has any tips please please let me know in the comments, much love!.

Oil pulling
I hadn't heard of this one until recently but I'll be defo giving it a try. Too me it sounds like giving your teeth a super deep clean. This wont as such bleach whiten your teeth, but it does help to get rid of yellowness, and plaque as well as help bad breath.

All you need to do for this one is take a table spoon of the oil and swish it through and around your teeth for 10-20 minutes and spit it out easy as pie!.





A nice little break to Torquay.

Tuesday, 7 June 2016

Holidays are my favourite thing!, just going somewhere you don't know and attempting to find your way around. Making lots of memories and just having a lovely relaxing time.

So recently it was my boyfriends birthday and I didn't want to just give him some generic present. Last year for his birthday we were long distance (I'm talking like nearly 300 miles away). So despite any present it was nice to be with him for his birthday this year. So back to the gift, I thought instead of clothes or a gift that's most likely not going to have much meaning We'd go to Torquay for the night. I did want it to be for a week. However, It was such short notice that we had no chance of having It off work.

It didn't take us long to get there maybe about an hour and a half, so we checked into our B&B, chucked our stuff in the room and hit the shops. We went into Primark and came out with a few clothes and bits and bobs about an hour or  later (never let me in Primark I will be in there ages). I found the cutest little  candles in there for like £1 one was sea salt and lavender and my god it is super relaxing and one was Madagascan vanilla which I loved. We then just walked around a few random shops and went into one of those little photo booths and took some photo's which I've framed.




There was a rather high big wheel there (Coming from someone who is relatively scared of heights) We couldn't resist but to go on it and I'm so glad we did. Although I was a little anxious the view was worth every second of it. We had a nice little walk along the pier and around the sea front. and ended up going for our dinner at Weather spoons which was lovely.




The day after we woke up to a full English which was so nice, the staff at the B&B we're jst so lovely and friendly and we went back around town to see if there was any shops we missed and then went for our train.

Even though we were there like 2 days we somehow managed to get through like £100 in spending money. Never the less I had the loveliest time and hopefully my boyfriend had the best birthday. He can't wait to go back, so that's a good sign!.

I think going away somewhere even just for a day was so much better than just buying him stuff, memories are worth so much more than possesions.
