Since Spring has sprung I’ve noticed how much the simplicity of sunshine or blossoming flowers actually affects my mood. It’s amazing the way bright colours can perk you up, no matter how dreary the day. I’ve recently started a new Sunday night ritual, taking time out and indulging in a face mask, episodes of Sex and The City and some chocolate or nail painting. Sometimes I’ve felt so stuck in a rut that it’s been easier to waste time on Twitter or mull over pointless worries, when actually all I needed was to stop and take stock.
Already a big fan of La Sultane de Saba, (as seen in my Premium Pampering post), I jumped at the chance to sample their Honey, Rose & Ginger Mask. Coming in at £30, I can vouch that this gorgeous goo is well worth the price tag. Using it once or twice a week has not only provided the perfect excuse to sit still and chill, but also made my skin soft, soothed and plumped up. The main problem is trying to avoid eating it alongside my SATC Dairy Milk, because like all La Sultane de Saba items, this mask smells ridiculously scrummy. A good friend visiting on Saturday even commented on my skin- and I thought that kind of thing only happened in cringey tv ads.
