The Weekend Edit ~1

The Saturday Sanctuary

I love Saturday mornings. The boy kisses me goodbye after bringing me my necessary black americano in bed, and I get to sorting all the things that I either, A. couldn't be bothered to do or, B. didn't have the energy to sort in the week. As I browse my current faves on bloglovin' and get my caffeine fix, I thought I should share with you this sanctuary that is my Saturday morning. 

The Weekend Edit ~1

1. Lime Water. This is my beverage of choice post black coffee. Coffee creates an acidic environment in your tum, so it is a good idea to counteract this with either a shot (great for an instant immune boost!) or a tall class of Lime Water. 
2. Grazia. Need I say more? LOVE this glossy and thankfully I have a continuous weekly supply thanks to my future Sis-In-Law purchasing me a sub for chrimbo. So lucky that this week I have a super big issue to coo over. 
3. The Valentines GlossyBox. Super cute pink packaging- loving the themed beauty boxes, review to come shortly.
4. My new toy. Early birthday present from the Boyf :) Aren't I spoilt!!! Can't wait to play more with my new Canon 1100D and splash out on matching accessories. 

FYI- I am also going to be attending The National Wedding Show at Olympia this weekend with MummaFish. We shall be attending on the Sunday. Will I see any of you there? Will be sure to take my uber cool SLR and get snap happy. 

Have a totes amaze Saturday readers, whatever you are getting up to.

Hair Treats!

Treats without the Cals ~ Hair Masks, Leave Ins and Oils 

Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque*, Unite Moisturising Repair Treatment*

Kerastase Noctogenist Voile Nuit Overnight Revitalising Treatment

Macadamia Natural Oil Nourishing Leave in Cream*

Moroccan Oil Oil Treatment, Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Spray*

Herra Hair Care Hair Perfume*

Hair Masks

Unite Hair- Moisturising Repair Treatment*
A hydrating, light weight creamy formula that leaves locks smooth and bouncy. Apply to clean, damp hair in an enormous lush bubble bath and leave on for ten for optimal hydration. 

Macadamia Natural Oil- Deep Repair Mask*
Not one I have personally put to the test, but an industry fave amongst fellow bbloggers. Give it a whirl and let me know how you find it?

Hair Leave In Products

Kerastase- Noctogenist Voile Nuit for Fine Hair
Apply this weightless serum to the ends of your damp locks after washing and wake to rapunzel- like, ultra high shine lengths. I love this nocturnal loving product and what makes it amazing is that all the work is done whilst you grab your uber important beauty zeds. 

Macadamia Natural OIl- Leave In Cream*
This product smells divine. Be careful to only apply a petit poi sized amount, otherwise your hair will be crunchy and crisp. Think LizFish1 circa 2000, when mousse was applied to damp hair and scrunched within an inch of its life. Not a good look.

Hair Oil

My first test in the hair treatment regime I have commenced- this is now a cult classic product. It does what it says on the tin, but dare I say- it leaves my hair a bit too soft?? Remember I am blessed with super fine, wavy locks- I require structure and hold, not taming. What do you think of it?

Macadamia Natural Oil*
Love that this little guy comes in a spray bottle- it has a strong scent though, which may offend. Do I rate it? Am on the fence with this one, but i can't deny the shine and softness it gives.

Hair Perfume

Herra Haircare- Hair Perfume*
Hair product phenomenon. Who doesn't want their hair to smell amaze? LOVE this stuff, firm favourite in my handbag beauty essentials. Spray it on multiple times throughout your day to refresh, hydrate, protect and scent. What is not to love? I've said it before, but will continue my mantra- Beauty obsessives need to get their insanely manicured mitts onto this- Its soon to become a must have. 

Watch me talk about them all at length???

How do you care for your hair?? Let me know below- this will greatly help in enabling to buy more product and for that, I thank you :)

Nutty- Locks

Forget Goldilocks and her bears, I've got Nutty- Locks!

Macadamia Natural Oil Products* 
Blurry- Locks
Muggy Shot, Nutty Locks...

Shiny Locks 
Star Product! Macadamia Healing Oil Spray*

 What do Macademia say???

"Macadamia Natural Oil™ products meld the lightweight and nutrient-rich properties of Macadamia nut and Argan seed oils to revitalize even the most problem hair, nourishing from root to tip for effortless health and beauty."

What does LizFish say???

A fantastic little travel set to get you started on your hair oil journey! Sound a bit too philosophical? Lets get down to the nitty gritty. 

Each Luxury Travel Set contains:
  1. 100ml Rejuvenating Shampoo- it cleans, but doesn't deep cleanse. NOT for the oily haired teen. 
  2. 60ml Moisturizing Rinse- light conditioner, leaving your hurr soft and yet not weighed down.
  3. 100ml Deep Repair Masque- not tested as of yet, don't want to overload my barnet- BUT word on the bblogger street is, it's good :)
  4. 30ml Healing Oil Treatment- my star product of the travel set. Smells way better and is lighter in consistency than its arch enemy Morrocan Oil. 
  5. 60ml Nourishing Leave-In Cream- i get a tad overzealous with this stuff. Its shoots out the tube and I end using more than the recommended pea size amount. Hasn't done me any harm though.
  6. Healing Oil Infused Comb- don't get this? not necessary in my opinion... a comb infused with oil? sounds like mumbo jumbo to me and I DO NOT recommend combing hair when wet- when your hair shaft is fully swollen with water it is at its weakest. 
  7. Travel bag- cute, but this shall be tossed afterwards. I have a much better range of wash bags stuffed in my beauty trunk, trust me. 

All that for £45??? Yeah, alright it is on the pricey side, BUT it does contain a sizable amount of high quality Argan and Macadamia oils for your pennies. 

What do you think of the Oil hair craze? Are you in? I AM, did you see the pictures above??? My hair is super soft, shiny and the frizz factor is definitely on the decline.
