Holiday hair and getting beach body ready…


Well it’s pretty good timing being handed a self-tan Today’s Special Value to road test the week before I go on holiday don’t you think? Not being one who self-tans very often, I have to say I was a bit reluctant but in the name of research I was more than game to give it a go with this Tan-Luxe Tailor Made Tan Collection – besides, anything has to be better than rocking up to a beach party in Ibiza looking like I’ve just come out of hibernation right?

So we are jetting off this weekend and I’ve already been practicing holiday hair as you can see!  Holiday skin however takes a bit more work so, coupled with my L’Occitane Ultra Rich Body Lotion   I donned a mitt (just to be sure) and so far after two applications am already not feeling too bad about getting my knees out which means by the end of the week and hopefully by the time I’m on the plane on Sunday, I’ll be bronzed and ready to wear my bikini – waistline not so much but hey ho, its amazing how much better we all look with a bit of colour on the skin!

So, this “before” pic was taken last Saturday ahead of Tan-Luxe’s TSV this Friday – Good Friday – with the drops for the face and the body. Just add to whatever moisturiser you prefer to use and there you go, you’ll wake up in the morning a whole new shade of beautiful!  BTW whilst you’re ordering, check out the beauty deals on the website over the Easter weekend!!

I’ll post some sunny pics whilst we are out there although the family rule is no screens on holiday as I think it’s important to disconnect from life and reconnect with each other. Saying that, as the children get older these things have to flex so I’ve said, phones after supper are OK

which means that’s when I’ll pop the odd pic up too. I need to mention in advance that the holiday hair as pictured is indeed my natural untouched “curl” – I’m not sure I can really call it a curl though, it is more like a kinky wave!

Anyhoo, have a wonderful Easter break whatever you might be up to and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts! Keep a look out on my social media for updates, here are my TwitterInstagram and Facebook links.

Love as always

Pipa x
