Toss the shopping list and improvise!

Ahhhh! I couldn't be more excited about my finds so I have to show them off here. Nothing that I really "need", but things I wanted oh-so-much! 

A nice group picture!
A beige and black sort of Zebra-striped beach towel from H&M (we got matching ones, cute huh?).

I've been checking these sunglasses out all summer and now I got them for a mere 2e! I can't wait to wear them.

This is not taken by me because my camera/skills suck. The point is that this is tea tree oil and I SWEAR by it to keep my skin clear and healthy. I'm all about natural solutions to problems so I find this a lot better than synthetic spot-treatment products. It's a natural antiseptic so it helps with all sorts of skin problems (like infections, bug bites etc) so I never go a day without it. Plus it smells great! :)

I left the best for last. This is a bar of henna- TO DYE MY HAIR RED! Yes, I'm finally doing it. The shade is "caca marron", so it's not going to be BAM! red, but more of a subtle maroon like I hoped (or that's what they promised me at LUSH). It takes quite a while to dye with henna, and since I haven't done it before it should be fairly interesting. The same friend (let us call her J to make life easier) is coming over tomorrow and I will hopefully remember to document the process  and tell you lot all about it.

I actually found the henna cake by accident while looking for a hair mask at LUSH. I was talking to the shop assistant and I mentioned that I wanted to get my hair into good condition before dying it red so I wouldn't have to cut it. She recommended henna to me since it apparently works as a hair mask while dying your hair (said she uses it in her shade so it doesn't dye just to get the moisturizing effect) . Needless to say I was sold. Luckily the cake (or slab) of henna cost 15 euros (I expected more for a natural product, the tend to be expensive here) and there's enough for two treatments. More about henna and the entire dying-shebang tomorrow. I can't wait!

I want to take this time to thank all of the lovely people who've been commenting and reading my blog. Though I do this for myself, it's always so nice to get good feedback. Also a big thanks to my followers!

All the best xxx
