Thanks to the lovely ladies at nzgirl,I had the chance to try out the Tangle Teezer Aqua Splash for this week’s Tried & Tested review.

I’ve found the secret to tangle-free mermaid hair!

I’ve found the secret to tangle-free mermaid hair!

My hair is thick and curly, and sometimes it can be a nightmare to try and wrangle it into anything other than a tangled mess. This is especially true over summer, when I’m spending quite a lot of time at the beach or in the pool. My hair is also coloured, meaning that it can sometimes need a bit of extra TLC.

What a wonderful week #4

I know, it’s Monday and technically I’m posting this late. And I realise that one of my highlights from the week actually happened today. It’s because it’s Auckland Anniversary weekend, and I kind of lost track of the days – oops!

1. I kickstarted my week with an amazing shoot with the gorgeous Dani McAllen from dani just is – she’s a total babe and super fun to shoot with, so we had loads of fun creating so fab images … that I can’t share with you just yet. But hold on to your britches, because she is definitely worth the wait (and I’m hoping to include a whole post about her soon).

Fresh fruit

2. Summer fruit is where it’s at. I’m going crazy for fresh fruit salad at the moment, and this is how I kick off most days – with a bowl of whatever tasty fruit I have on hand.  My fave fruit is definitely nectarines right now, how about you?

Review: I love … mango & papaya body butter

Mango and Papaya Body Butter

Beauty Review sent me this delicious new body butter to test out, and I have to say that it’s got my mouth watering! It smells deliciously tropical, and makes me smell like sweet exotic fruits as well.

It is super easy to use – slather it on your whole body (not the face!) and rub it in for silky soft skin that is nourished and beautifully fragranced.  I recommend coating your feet with this delicious body butter before you go to bed, pop on bed socks, and when you wake up your feet will be super soft.

Nailed It! Hot Summer Pink

FF 2

This week I am rocking Revlon’s Fuschia Fever (shade 040) on my toes – this stunning pink shade is a bit bluer than your average Barbie pink, and I’m not sure that my photos really do it justice – it’s pretty close to the colour you can see on this product shot from Revlon though.

Review: Solution Buds by Hil Cook

Bye bye panda eyes...

Bye bye panda eyes…

I got these in my Sample Bar Glam Pack, and they’ve definitely come in handy. Hil Cook Solution Buds are essentially cotton buds that are filled with eye makeup remover to help you remove mascara and eyeliner smudges quickly and easily.

They contain aloe vera and Vitamin E, are lovely on sensitive eyes, and are pretty simple to use.  I get panda eyes all the time, because I have a tendency to rub my eyes when I’m tired, so these are the perfect addition to the make-up bag I carry in my purse.
