Who gets sick in August?! I don’t know how I managed it but in the middle of a heatwave I got sick – nothing major just a cold. The exact opposite of a summer illness. Now when I’m sick in the winter I know exactly what to do and I get in bed with candles and a cup of tea and stay there until I’m well again. But I could not imagine putting a candle on in this heat never mind lying under the covers in bed so I did what I know best and went home to my mums for the day.
I had a full day of girlie pampering which actually managed to cure me – yes I did nearly faint in Primark but it was all in the name of new PJs! To make the most of this sick day me and my mum went shopping for said new PJ’s before watching Mamma Mia 2 (highly recommend) and getting pizza. Pizza cures all, the only downside was not ordering a wine as I could just about taste and nobody wants a wine headache when their sick especially when you can’t even taste the wine!
When we got home I decided to run myself the bath or all baths and have a full pamper routine. I’m talking Lush bath bomb, hair mask, face mask, shaving every inch of your body and Netflix. I managed to finish SAFE on Netflix in two days and it is so good if you haven’t watched it definitely add it to your list!
For my bath, I used the Lash Intergalactic bath bomb which is my all time fave mermaid-like bath. Whilst in the bath I applied the Lacura Exfoliating Mud Mask and Luseta Coconut Milk Hair Mask. I felt so squeaky clean when I got out of the bath and had my new PJ’s and fluffy socks waiting for me! I then used the Origins Drink Up Intensive and let it soak in before using The Ordinary Retinol 0.2% in Squalane, Kheils Midnight Recovery Eye and Clarins Multi-Active Nuit night cream. These three used together make my skin look really glowing and plump the next morning. I love the Retinol I started on 0.2 but it hasn’t caused any issues with my skin so I’ll definitely try a higher percentage next time!
Maybe it was purely coincidence but when I woke up the next day I felt a million times better! I can’t believe I got sick in August that’s a new one for me!
