My Latest Chilled Weekend: Facials, Fortune Cookies And SEAHAM

I have to say that this weekend was perhaps the most chilled I've had for an awfully long time. Usually I spend my weekends stressing about work, family or something I've dedicated myself to. This weekend was an interesting breath of fresh air and I only hope that I'll get more chances to relax fairly soon. On Saturday I paid my weekly visit to my great-grans house before going to a Body Shop party. It was there that I got a relaxing facial as I sipped mojitos, I'm glad I volunteered to be the guinea pig for the products because my skin was feeling awful. It's safe to say that I'm now feeling much more positively about the condition of my skin. We used products from the chamomile range as well as products from the vitamin c, vitamin e and tea trea ranges. I then returned to my great-grans where we ordered a Chinese takeaway, I ordered a chicken curry whilst my gran ordered something with prawns and a sweet and sour sauce. My fortune cookie said 'Look for more outlets for your own creative abilities' and I plan on doing just that, I just need to figure out how. The message was eerily potent as I have been trying to figure out what I want to do as an extra hobby, I just knew I wanted it to have a creative element. Anyway, by the end of our meal it was too late and too windy to consider walking home on my own so I stayed over hers, I borrowed a nightie of hers (made of satin, so comfy!), and we relaxed as we watched a few horror films. 

Backtracking a little bit, I received this Instant Hair Revival brush last week which apparently helps the hair through the use of kinetic energy. I had a chance to test it out over the weekend and it's actually really helped out with my frizzy mane, I'm trying to remember to use it when I get a chance but I do revert back to my trust paddle brush. I plan on posting a review for this hair brush later in the week so look out for that. I'm trying to keep my hair in good condition because my hair needs to be redyed sometime soon and I want to limit the damage, what I'm really saying is that this brush couldn't have come at a better time. Anyway, without saying too much on the matter, I also have some raspberry ketones from a different brand to review but that will likely take longer as I have to trial the product for... 28 days, I think. 

Last but certainly not least in the agenda for today's lifestyle post is the details of Sundays trip to Seaham. After Sunday lunch my dad suggested a trip out to take advantage of the good weather. My mum had a nap and my brother decided to do some exam revision so that just left my dad, myself and my little sister to have a little adventure. We didn't really decide we were going to Seaham until we got lost in Sunderland but it was lovely once we got there, we hopped from rock to rock, my sister fell in a rock pool, we collected pretty rocks and then we had a wander around the town. All in all it was a very pleasant trip, it always seems to be the three of us that end up wandering the most random towns, it's getting to be quite a habit! Anyway, thank you very much for reading about my chilled out weekend... What do you like to do to relax? I'm quite partial to a Montagne Jeunesse facemask and a chocolatey treat myself.

  1. For me, there's no better way to relax than on a quiet countryside walk with my dog. :)

    1. Thanks, Kanwal! I have to agree with you on that one, the beach is the perfect place to chill. :)

  4. Sounds like you had a great weekend. I think it's fun to wander around the most random towns. You get to explore stuff and have fun.

    1. I actually had a conversation with my gran the other week about the difference between young and old people - She seems to think that the elderly are more inclined to explore, shop and learn about the place - I'm more of the opinion that our generation are more likely to do so. I'd rather explore than spend all day at a water park or whatever if I'm being honest. :) xx
