Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturiser

I'll admit it, I am lazy when it comes to moisturising my body. With it being Summer however, I have been fake tanning a lot more and yes fake tan is still needed in Summer in the UK! So, since fake tanning more I've found the need to moisturise my body more in between applications. 

The moisturiser I've been reaching too is this one from Vaseline. I actually brought this a while back, when it first came out however, have only just recently began using it. This is such an easy moisturiser to use, I can't believe I haven't used it earlier than recently. One of the annoying things about moisturising, for me, is the sticky feeling you get left on your hands. I know that's not the biggest deal but you do not get that at all with this product. 

My only tip is to either stand on a towel or carpet, as the floor can get pretty slippery if not when doing your legs especially. It only takes a couple of minutes to sink into the skin and you're ready to go! This product is definitely a new staple for me due to it being so easy to use. Another great thing is that even when spraying those 'awkward' places, you can hold it upside down and it still sprays! 

Definitely check out this product if you're after a new body moisturiser that's different, yet super simple and does the job. Within this range there are different 'scents', the one I have is cocoa which smells lovely.

MIA: Moving Out

The reason I've been practically non-existent recently is because I have finally moved into my own home. Life without certain luxuries has been different, one of those being broadband, hence the lack of posts on practically any social media. To make matters worse, I've also used up all my data on my monthly phone contract and with just moving house, spare money is non-existent also. Therefore I've just been a bit MIA and busy with both moving out and work.

Minus the slight down falls, moving out has been something I have wanted to do for quite some time now, so being able to finally do it is amazing for me. Yes, it's definitely been one of the most stressful times of my life but it has been worth it of course. I still have a to do list longer than ever but it's so satisfying ticking things off one by one, I do love a good list. As I said, although I have a long way to go, until it's fully the way I want it, it's definitely heading in the right direction and I'm loving it.

I never went away to uni, so have never lived away from my parents. I think that may have been part of the reason why I wanted to move out. I've been saving ever since I can remember, so to be able to buy my own house independently is something I'm proud of myself for. It's such a big step to do alone but I know I'm not actually alone. I haven't moved far away from my family or friends at all however, it just gives me more independence than ever. I remember when I first passed my driving test and everyone was saying "you've got your independence now". Which yes, is 100% correct but living independently is on a whole new level due to the responsibilities. I obviously haven't lived alone for very long yet, it has only been a couple of weeks now, but I'm excited for the future in my new home.

I had been collecting bits for a long time prior to moving in so when it came to it, I was pretty much set. Doing so has definitely helped me, when moving in, as I think it was a lot less hassle. Also doing it so early prior, in stages, meant I wasn't parting with so much money all in one go. This would definitely be my top tip for anyone moving out for the first time. Although I definitely forgot I even had some things and did forget a couple of essentials, lists are everything!

So this is just a little update to explain where I've been and I'm finally getting my broadband go live tomorrow, so will be back up and running very soon! Above are just a few decor photos that I have posted on Instagram since moving in. If you have recently moved out, for the first time, then I'd love to hear how your getting on? :-) I'm thinking about doing more home decor, living alone and first home posts etc in the future too, so keep your eyes peeled for those if it interests you!

John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Agent & Miraculous Recovery Serum

Since cutting my hair quite a bit shorter, the one thing I was worried about what it going frizzy due to there not being so much weight to weigh it down. However, I still took the plunge and cut it, I just went online to Boots and made an order. I went straight to the John Frieda range simply because I had previously heard of this range. 

First I picked up the John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Agent Touch Up Creme, what a mouthful. I wanted a product that could be applied to both wet and dry hair basically so I just had one for each of those times. This product is the one which is to be applied onto dry hair and can literally be used whenever you need it. It's a super easy product to use; you simply just use a small amount of product and run it through the mid-length to the ends of your hair. I would recommend starting off with a smaller amount of product and keep working like that, as too much of this product in the same area of your hair can make it look slightly greasy and wet. However, I've really been enjoying using this product more when I'm being lazy and cannot be bothered to properly style my hair. It definitely helps with the frizz and tones it down, making the no effort I've put in look more sleek.

The second product is the John Frieda Miraculous Recovery Creme Serum which has many claims which are; eliminates frizz, repairs damage, treats split ends and nourishes. This product can actually be applied on either wet or dry hair but because I purchased the other product for dry hair, I have only been using this product on wet hair. After washing my hair and leaving it to towel dry for a little while, I then go in with this product from the mid-lengths to the ends of my hair. I use 3 pumps for the whole of hair and I do feel that it does cover the majority of my hair. Now with this product being from the Frizz Ease range, I would have liked this product to have helped with my frizz. I don't know whether it is because I am using it on wet hair, and I haven't tried it on dry hair, but I don't notice a difference after using this product. However, I do feel like this product helps with the damage on my hair, which is relatively minimal, but it does therefore help protect it.

Overall, I'm enjoying the first product much more than the second one in terms of helping with the frizz of my hair. The second product is good but it doesn't fully do what it states, which is unfortunate. Let me know your favourite product to help eliminate frizz, I'd love to hear them!
