Hi girls! What's up? Is the heat wave doing you well? Over here, I'm loving every minute of it. The light was on point in my room so I thought what a perfect time to shot some pictures for the blog before heading of vacations. Yes, vacations are just around the corner and I'm more excited than ever.
I truly need some time away, sleeping all day on the beach and eating good things. This year was quite rough and I need a serious time off from all the stress and the pressure haha!
I currently in the 'vacays prep' mode. You know all those things you need to do before leaving. Check list, buying more bikinis and SPF 50 - yes my skin is very sun sensitive - picking all of your outfits, making sure your luggage is not overweight but also getting your skin ready. After 6 months of horrible weather and a little bit of lacking in the pampering sessions due to pure laziness, now I need my pins to be looking their best, my teeth whither than ever and my hair looking healthy.
Ok so the shaving part. Usually I don't shave all year round, I try to throw a little epilation session or two in the mix to avoid the 'yeti legs' syndrome at the end of the winter but this year I was just so over the weather and pretty much shaved all the time. Shaving is good, I'm all for it but I believe that it's good to alternate with an epilation to slow the growing process. Now that I'm going on vacays, I don't want to shave every day so I need to be brave and go for that epilation sesh! I've received the new Braun Silk Epil 7, right in time for my torture session haha. Ok it's not THAT bad, I have had many bad memories with electric epilator in the past but this one is the best I have every used by far. The torture process was super quick, I was really shocked at how fast I was done with it. It does hurt but less than the others I have used in the past.
Of course, I'll still take my mini Venus Snap razor with me, you never know what can happen haha!
To get your skin ready before vacations, you need a lot of scrubbing and a LOT of moisturizing.
My skin has suffered from all of those cold months. I have been using the Kruidvat Spa Secrets Jelly Body Scrub with my massage glove to make sure I get rid of all the dead skin so my tan is going to last much much longer. Then I moisturize with this new Kruidvat Spa Secrets Coconut Water & Frangipani body butter aka the bomb dot com. It's SO good I am obsessed with it. It smells like monoï, it's absolutely divine.
On my face I have been loving the new Olaz Pro Vital and Sensitive day creams. They both have a very subtle scent - which I love - and also SPF 15. The Anti-wrinkle label is not my thing, I'm more of a pro wrinkle kinda person and I don't feel like a cream is going to get rid of my wrinkles. If one day I don't want them anymore I'll just get botox haha!
I'll bring this shampoo with me on vacays as it's apparently strengthening & soothing = everything I love/need during vacations at the day.
Teeth wise, I get them bleached with my favorite Crest product and I'm going to try using this new Oral B toothpaste to up keep the whiteness!
What are your must haves before going away?
