If you have been reading my blog for a while, you would know by now that I am a big fan of Latest In Beauty. If you don't know, Latest in beauty (or LIB for short) sell a range of "beauty boxes designed to accommodate your needs, whatever the circumstances".
The latest box to cause a stir in the blogging world is the Origins Mix & Mask Box put together by the ever so lovely The Brit Beauty Blog.

I have been a fan of Origins for a good three or so years now and regularly use their face masks. My favourites being the Clear Improvements mask and the 10 Minutes Out Of Trouble mask. Both do wonders for my skin.So when I heard that this box was going to be released, I knew I had to get my hands on it. It comes with nine products ranging from full sizes to sample sizes, which to me look very generous!
Also within the box, you get an exclusive offer to receive £10 off at Origins when you spend £30 or more which is perfect and is something I will definitely make use of.

What's in the box?

Maskimizer Skin Optimizing Mask Primer - 95ml full size, £18.50

This Week I'm Loving...#1

This Week I'm Loving, Benefit Rockateur, Sunshine, Garnier Cleansing Lotion, Pink Lemonade, Givency Live Irresistible
I thought I would add a new series to my blog and post every week, mainly on a Sunday, a weekly round up on the things I've been loving for the past week!

Sunshine // Finally, England has had some sunshine! Yes that big ball of fire in the sky does exist. It's amazing how a bit of sunshine can instantly make everything seem so much better.

Pink Lemonade // I have probably been drinking a little too much of this lately. I find it such a summery drink, especially with lots of ice and a colourful straw.

Garnier Fresh Cleansing Lotion // I love using this to remove my makeup. It's great at removing all makeup, including waterproof mascara. It also leaves my skin feeling super smooth afterwards.

Benefit Rockateur Blush // This has been my go to blush this week. It's a lovely rose gold blush which gives the cheeks such a lovely flush of colour. It's also got a bit of shimmer in it too, which adds a lovely highlight.

White Gel Nails // I love how white nails look especially against a tan. I have white nail varnish but I love how shiny gel nails look. I'm tempted to purchase a gel kit just so I can have lovely glossy white nails for Summer.

Givenchy Live Irresistible // I bought this perfume back in September last year (when I went to Florida). It smells amazing and is such a lovely summery scent. It also reminds me of my holiday to Disney!

What have you been loving this week?

Reminiscing of my holiday back in June. I went to Greece and had the most amazing holiday. It was crazy hot, I ate too much, drank too much but had an amazing time with my fiance and friends! If you haven't been to Greece before I would definitely recommend it!

This Halloumi salad is just one of the salads I had whilst away and it was so good! My addiction for Halloumi cheese has started! I even made my fiance buy some for the BBQ we had yesterday!

I finally bought a new car. It has been a long time coming but decided to take the plunge and bought a new Vauxhall Corsa. I previously had a older Corsa which I had since I passed my test back in 2008, so it was about time I had a little upgrade.

I'm done adulting, let's be mermaids. This couldn't be more true haha.

So far July has been filled with birthdays, including mine, BBQs, days out and sunshine (finally). I have a week off in a couple of days, which I can't wait for which will hopefully consist of beach days if the weather lasts!

BBQ time selfie! The first BBQ of the year was for my father-in-law's birthday. BBQs are one of the reasons I love the Summer time and we've finally had some good weather to actually get the barbecue out.

I am loving having a natural tan at the moment. Doesn't it just make you feel much better about yourself and I feel clothes just look better? Am I right?!

#HotDogLegs. The typical holiday pose.

I'm trying to be a bit more positive on how I look on life and I'm starting with Monday's. Now everyone seems to hates Mondays, but I now see it as the start of a new week. A chance to try something new, forget about last dramas week and focus on moving forward!

Review // RUSH Hair Ipswich

Review, RUSH Hair Salon In IpswichReview, RUSH Hair Salon In IpswichReview, RUSH Hair Salon In IpswichReview, RUSH Hair Salon In IpswichReview, RUSH Hair Salon In IpswichReview, RUSH Hair Salon In IpswichReview, RUSH Hair Salon In IpswichReview, RUSH Hair Salon In IpswichReview, RUSH Hair Salon In Ipswich

My hair was in serious need of some TLC and I was lucky enough to get invited to RUSH Hair in Ipswich to review their salon and try out a full makeover for my hair.
RUSH Hair is a franchise with salons all over the country and are British award winning in hair and beauty. The salon I attended is based in Ipswich, right in the town centre and was very easy to find.
From first impressions of the salon, it looked very sleek and modern with shiny black floor tiles and long lit up mirrors. The products they use are Kérastase, GHD, L'Oréal Professionnel and Nanokeratin.

I was greeted by a lovely lady at reception with a massive smile and a salon full of customers. What I liked when I entered was that she knew who I was straight away. There's nothing worse when you have been invited to review a place and you turn up and they're like 'who are you?', not that I expect everyone to know me, not at all. But if I'm coming to review you then at least do you your research before and have a quick glance at what I look like so you know who to expect.

I was seated at the diagnostic area where I was offered, tea, coffee or a glass of wine. I had a lovely glass of Rose with Lindt chocolate and some salted pretzels. Here is where I also met my hairdresser for the afternoon, Cherie.
She asked me what I wanted and I explained that I was after a full head of highlights and layers put in. I also showed her a couple of pictures too as how I would like the style.
Cherie moved me over to another chair and got started with the highlights. She was very chatty and put me at ease. 
After the highlights were done, we headed to the sinks where she washed the dye out and gave my hair a lovely wash and treatment.

Back to the seat, she began to cut my hair. She didn't even ask to see the image again that I showed her, she just knew what I wanted.
To finish off, she gave me a blow dry. I've never had a blow dry before but after the results I guess you can say I kinbd of want them all the time! I best start learning how to do them at home.

If you're in the Ipswich/Suffolk area I suggest you check out this salon or a RUSH salon near you!

Check out their website and what they offer.

Have you visited this salon before?
