Loving this week

Macaroons! Can you believe I hadn't tried it before? I have passed by them a zillion times but never thought of getting them.

Besides looking pretty enough not to eat, they are equally delicious and like a hybrid of a cake, biscuit and chocolate in my opinion, for those of you who haven't tried it yet.

These one's are from Marks & Spencers. Know where I can find great Macaroons from? Let me know.

John Frieda Volume Thickening Mousse

Does exactly what it says on the can. Instructions say its meant to be used on slightly damp hair and at the roots for volume. I however prefer to use it after I have done styling my hair and massaging some in at the roots and crunching some at the ends. 

It immediately adds a tonne of volume on the crown area and thickens any thin hair at the bottom. It keeps curls intact for quite a few hours, adds shine and is very light  - so there are no questions of limpy hair. 

Use if before of after styling, on damp or dry hair, it works just as well! 
Aah the Good Things Five Minute Facial Mask is bliss.

I have tried a few skincare bits from Good Things before but have never been a fan or gotten to finish what I had. This however is simply gorgeous to use. It really does moisturise, brighten and clear the clean from blemishes at one go.

So I would assume all skin types should be fine using this. It's main ingredients are Goji Berry and Avocado and it looks like a clay mask when squeezed out but surprisingly  it did not dry out my skin at all or make it feel tight or parched after washing off.

My skin was left supple and bright and I absolutely loved the fact that I could achieve that in simply 5 minutes. Great for night outs of occasions so for £5.99, everyone needs to get their hands on this.
