Mummy pamper evening feat OPI*

Once a week I gather together my favourite pampering goodies and lock myself away in the bathroom once Ava is in bed. The next day I feel happier, relaxed and a little more tanned, thanks to Fake Bake.

Soap & Glory are a staple in my bathroom, every Christmas I receive one of their gift boxes and I add to my collection throughout the year.

Nath bought me the Daily Soothe for Christmas. It's almost finished but it will be repurchased, I love it. It's basically bubble bath which you scoop out with your hand and swirl into your bathwater. It has a strong fragrance which leaves you smelling sweet after your bath. I've recently bought the Breakfast Scrub which smells as though I've mixed some porridge oats and maple syrup together and smothered it onto myself. It takes every amount of self restraint I have not to eat it!

My hair is terrible at the moment, luckily I'm booked in for a hair appointment next week but I have been using my Wella hair mask in the meantime. It's a heated hair mask which feels slightly strange at first but it leaves my hair feeling lovely and glossy.

Fake Bake is by far my favourite tanning brand. I hate looking pale and peaky and over the years I have tried every fake tan out there, but I always go back to Fake Bake. "Flawless" comes with a pair of latex gloves and a velvety mitt which makes application a doddle. If you are looking for the perfect tanning product for the Summer months, I highly recommend this one.

A few weeks ago I bought some Origins products, they really didn't agree with my skin and left it looking red, spotty and angry. I have always been lucky to have quite clear skin so I was gutted. I contacted REN & Pai who sent me a few samples of their products and I adore the Pai facemasks. My skin has completely cleared up and using the facemasks helped. They are specially formulated for sensitive skin so I will be buying the bigger versions once I have run out.

Coconut is my favourite, I love to eat it, to drink it and to smell like it and slathering myself in coconut butter is the best! I buy mine from Boots and it's thick, creamy and smells divine.

I have a "thing" about nails. I hate them being nude, nude nail polish, sure but nails without nail polish make me feel a bit ill. Especially toes... anyway, I was recently sent the new Hawaii gift set from OPI and I couldn't wait to give the colours a whirl. The shades are perfect for Summer, two pretty pastels for daytime and two bright, vibrant colours for evening. The small sizes are ideal to pop into your handbag for a quick touch up during the day and I love the wide brush which makes application a lot easier.

"That's Hula-rious"

"Suzi shops and island hops"
I adore pastel shades, especially in the Spring/ Summer months so both "That's Hula-rious" & "Suzi shops & island hops" are right up my street. I did find that both shades were quite watery and needed a few applications before they became a strong colour. Still beautiful polishes all the same.
"Aloha from OPI"
This was my favourite shade from the gift set. I love this bright, vibrant coral that would look perfect with a Summer tan. I think this shade would compliment every outfit. This polish gave a good, strong colour on first application.

"Lost my Bikini in Molokini"
Again, this polish gave a good strong colour on first application. I was worried that this shade would be too dark but once it dried it is a lovely, bright purple.
The giftset can be purchased from Justmylook for £9.95 and would make the perfect travel companion.
*I was sent the OPI Hawaii giftset free of charge in exchange for an honest review. Thoughts are 100% my own
