That Friday feeling!

Yay! Thanks to the Bank Holiday and swapping my working days this week.....my weekend started today! It's the first outing for this Zara linen blazer that I purchased in Lanzarote whilst on holiday.

What has really made my day is that I tested out a couple of new hair products sent to be by Cult Beauty. I am always nicer when my hair goes right! I used the Virtue Restorative Treatment mask for the first time this morning. I used it on the ends of my hair when I got up and left it on for an hour (with a plastic bag over my ponytail to give the treatment a boost) and then shampoo'd it out.

I dried my hair off a little (I have a Dyson hairdryer which I have found is a lot kinder to my hair - not such an intense blast of heat) and then let it finish drying off naturally. Then I spritzed it with a little Playa Endless Summer Spray before using my GHD straighteners on it. I got the perfect beachy wave without the dry scrunchy feel. It's actually really bouncy and soft. What a result!

Really chuffed with both products. I thought it might be useful to link the technique that I use to get the wave that I've "borrowed" from George Northwood here. I've also been checking out a different way of doing it......thanks to the super stylish Anine Bing (tutorial here) who uses a couple of the Playa products.....a very good endorsement if ever there was one!

Back tomorrow with my outfit of the day!
