Hydrated hair during Summer is quite a goal, right? All the high temperatures, the UV rays you expose your hair to during Summer can produce damage and dehydration to your hair. Trust me, been there, done that. I know how hard it is to make your hair shiny and smooth after a day at the pool. And it’s especially hard if you have dyed hair.

I believe every one of us out there wants her hair to look like a shampoo ad, right? Well, this Summer I’ve discovered the secret for that: Morroccanoil! As long as you maintain your hair fresh with the right products you’ll have no problem in achieving a hydrated hair. Continue reading to uncover my newest routine.

Moroccanoil Hydration set

This Moroccanoil Repair Set is all you need! All the products come in a cute travel bag making everything really aesthetic. These are the only four products that you really need: hydration mask, conditioner, shampoo and a hair treatment.

All of these items are rich in nutrition, offer smoothness and are made to keep your hair frizz free. You can use them on every type of scalp and hair. Also, I promise their scent is incredible. Plus, you’ll see results after the first use. How amazing, right?

The First Step

Before entering the shower brush your hair. You can then abundantly wet it. After your hair is ready, use the Moroccanoil Shampoo. Massage your scalp and take your time. After you’ve cleansed your hair entirely you can rinse it. Make sure you’ve cleaned all the product in it.

The Second step

After you’re done with shampooing, gently squeeze the excess water in your hair. It’s now time to apply the conditioner. Apply the product from the mid-length to the end of your hair. Make sure you’ve applied it and leave it on for 2-3 minutes (I try to do a little meditation whilst I’m at it because my patience is 0). After the time has passed, rinse your hair well and get ready for step three.

The Third step

Your hair is now super clean and you can continue with your normal shower routine. Once you’ve finished, dry your hair a little with on old T-shit (avoid towels as they dry your hair out).

The Fourth step

You can now apply a small amount of the Moroccanoil Treatment to your towel dried hair. Don’t apply it to the roots. Use the product from the mid-length to the ends of your hair. After you’ve finished you can style your hair however you wish.

This hair routine really helped me get through this Summer with healthy and hydrated hair. The heat has always been quite problematic to my hair, therefore I love my newest hair routine. Being able to look this fresh has a great impact on my mood and way of being. Believe it or not, but these products have made wonders for my hair.

Have you tried them? What is YOUR hair routine? Slide in my Instagram (@notagirlygal) DM’s and let me know.

Until next time,

Creating and developing a self-care routine is crucial in maintaining a strong relationship with yourself. Actually, being able to take care of your body and to treat it as your temple is quite therapeutic.

A good self-care routine can also help you become more self-confident. You will feel better in your own skin and more empowered to action your day.

How to create your own self-care routine when you’re busy?

If there’s one thing that I completely understand nowadays, it’s how challenging can be to balance your career with your life & well-being. However, it’s SO important to take some time out just for yourself. If not, you’ll soon feel like you’re running a marathon. It’s actually OK to have leisure time and to use it however you like.

Your self-care routine shouldn’t take too much of your time actually – if time is a constraint for you. For example, you can start by paying attention to you when you wake up. Your skin will need hydration, you might want to take a shower, do anything that feels refreshing. With a great morning routine, your day will flow with positivity and your productivity level will increase significantly.

You should also dedicate a bit of time for your self-care routine before you go to bed . Therefore, even if you’re busy you can save one or two hours per day only for your self-care 🙂

My updated skin-care routine

I’m into more organic and more natural products lately. I was able to find some very exciting organic brands on the Notino website, so I had to try them for myself and share my experience with using them today.

First of all, I run a warm bath and apply a sheet mask. Actually, running a warm bath does wonders from time to time. It will relax you and set the a calm mood for the night. You blood will flow easier and you will be able to breathe much better. Moreover, it can also improve your immunity system, because the higher temperature is killing bacteria.

Then, I add this bath foam from Natura Siberica to the running water for it to lather. It smells divine and leaves my skin so soft. I highly need the hydration right now as I’m currently on my Roaccutane treatment. If you have dry skin, you have to try this.

Up next, I wash my body. This body wash – Fiora Siberica from Natura Siberica is very different from all the products I have used before. At first, it smells very strongly as straweberries, then it fades away. And that’s a GREAT aspect – it means it’s truly organic. As the label states – its ingredients are 99% organic.

When I have more time, I apply a body scrub too. This one smells so nice as honey & cinnamon – it reminds me of a sweet shop. Also, scrubbing your body is very beneficial – it will improve your circulation and it will also help in removing dead skin cells from the body’s surface.

After I dry my skin with a fluffy towel, I apply a hydrating body butter which is highly needed for me these days. I love the Rich Siberian White Body Butter by Natura Siberica as it’s VERY heavy. The benefits of using body butter are many but my favourite one is how well moisturised your skin is after you’ve applied the product.

In the end, I love the smell of the Dolce & Gabbana The One perfume. Therefore, I spray it on my wrist before I go to bed.

All things considered, having a self-care routine is really therapeutic. I love spending time with myself and I believe everyone should focus more on themselves, at least from time to time. What is your skin-care routine and what tips do you have for mine?

Until next time,

Miss Andrada 🙂

How to set your meditation space might not come so natural when you’re just starting out with your practice. Think of it this way, in order to have a deep meditation session, the state of your mind in that moment is just as important as your surroundings. Today, I’m walking you through the way I am organising my own space and share with you some of my best kept secrets about having a successful meditation session. Let’s begin!

#1 Declutter your surroundings & create your meditation space

A busy space equals a busy mind. No matter what you might think right now, having a cluttered meditation space will actually negatively impact your session. Also, the more you’ll try to ignore it, the more you’ll notice it. Instead, take 15-20 minutes before you start to tidy up your surroundings. I love having a neat desk & night table when I meditate, it’s just one of those things that help me better connect with my mind. Next time you’re considering how to set up your meditation space, make sure this one is up on your list.

#2 Look for natural lighting in your room to enhance your meditation space

This one is powerful! Last Spring, whilst in my Chelsea flat, I came across Bob Proctor and his meditation practices. I was engaging in them quite often. This flat that I mentioned was a real gem for natural lighting. I remember the sun hitting my face once during visualisation. That ray of sunshine stays with me until today. It was the perfect sign for me to know that I can do whatever I envision. Since then, whenever I meditate during the morning, I ensure I get enough natural light. You should definitely try this; begin with little light until you can handle being in front of your window!

#3 Use aromatherapy to lift your mood

One of the most important things I do when I meditate is to use aromatherapy to get into a more spiritual vibe. This way, I ensure I’m offering myself every opportunity I have to make my meditation session a real success. I really enjoy using an aroma diffuser – the ones that I adore right now are by Villa Hermanos in Fig & Amber. Its fragrance makes me dream of a small villa on the Spanish coast, surrounded by pam trees and beautiful flowers. Also, it frees my mind and makes me better focus on my meditation.

Alternatively, in days when I prefer the warm light of a candle and a calm crackle sound, but still want a wonderful fragrance, I turn to my WoodWick Candle. At the moment, I’m using the Island Coconut one and trust me when I say – it smells divine. It takes me back to Punta Cana and makes me believe that everything is possible!

For wax melt lovers out there, I’ve got you covered with the WoodWick Rosewood. Who doesn’t like the smell of a fresh garden while meditating? It’s one of the most freeing scents.

Whatever your preferences are in regards to aromatherapy, on Notino, you will be sure to find your meditation scent.

#4 Adjust your body posture & find comfort

The next thing you have to consider is to adjust your body posture until you find comfort. Contrary to the popular opinion, I like to meditate in my bed – both in the morning and at night. I find that more comfortable, but others prefer a chair, sofa or their floor. Find what works for you and stick to it.

#5 Browse your favourite guided meditation sessions or guide yourself

There are so many apps you can choose from nowadays for guided meditation that with a simple search you’ll be provided with various options. I suggest you to try a few apps or videos until you find those ones that TRULY resonate with you and with what you would like to achieve.

It would be wonderful to know, how are you currently setting up your space? Is there anything you would add to my recommended things to do?

Lots of love,

Andrada

Three ways to style your curls? I’ve came across this wonderful curling iron from Philips that enables me to create more curly hair looks at once! Let’s have a look at my favourite easy to do hairstyles with only one device.

More looks, just one hair curling iron – sounds good, right? I’ve been on a hunt for a big barrel hair wand, but haven’t really spent time to research a good one…until last week.

I was sitting at my desk looking for new inspiration. I was thinking to cut my hair. But that would only mean I’d have to wait for it to grow back again (to a medium size). So, I was wondering, ‘What could I do instead?’. Then, I remembered my old advice! Just try a new hairstyle! If you’re looking for new ways to style your hair too, you’re in the right place.

I’ve became obsessed with this Phillips Philips StyleCare BHB868/00 curling iron to the point that I’m using it almost everyday because it gives me that look of effortless curls. I’m showing you three ways to style your curls, so that you won’t get bored of your looks.

Turn on the curling iron by pressing the round button and set it to your desired temperature – I usually go with 200 Celsius degrees.

Voluminous Curls

Next, to get voluminous curls, start curling your hair using the curling iron as a curling wand. Make sure to diversify the sizes of the pieces of hair you’re curling.

After you finish curling your whole hair, use your hands to give volume to your hair. Moreover, brush your curls and you can enjoy beautiful Hollywood curls.

Bobby Pinned Curls

This look makes me think of beautiful princesses of the 18th century. Such an innocent and feminine look. Perfect for Spring that’s about to come (thank God). To achieve this, you only need one bobby pin. Choose two pieces of hair from the front and secure them together at the back using the bobby pin.

The end result? Simple & elegant.

Half Ponytail

Khloe K vibes anyone? This must be my favourite look. I often use this hairstyle when I’m working out – it just puts me in the right mood. Furthermore, to get the look, you need to section the upper part of your hair and tie it with a hair band. That’s it!

Voilaaaaaa

Let’s do this! Show me your looks on Instagram – tag me @notagirlygal so I can see your beautiful creations.

Lots of love,

Andrada

5 Christmas Decoration Ideas You Don’t Want to Miss This Christmas

It’s beginning to look a lot like… Black Friday! And what better time to go ahead and invest in some very nice Christmas candles and decorations to get the holiday spirit started? Let’s discover some ideas that will turn your home into Santa’s workshop👇🏻

As an example, in today’s post, I’m going to show you how I’ve decorated my chimney for Christmas. You can of course use these ideas for your kitchen table, living room coffee table, your bedroom or your own chimney. Let’s GO!

Pick Up Your Crackle Wick Candles

AHHH, what a difference do these make! It’s like they sing to me. They do make such a great duet with Frank Sinatra to be fair. I love curling up my sofa, listening to carols, drinking mulled wine and hearing the crackle wick candles in the background. Christmas Eve will be so complete: wood crackling, family cheer, love and laughter. What more can I ask for?

They might be more on the pricy side, but the great news is that this Black Friday, you can find them at a more discounted price on Notino. Also, they really go a long way because they smell quite strong, so perhaps after 30 minutes you’d want to blow it off and allow the scent to fill up your room.

Decorate your Chimney with Small Yankee Candles and Christmas lights

yankee candles christmas eve 5 Christmas Decoration Ideas You Don't Want to Miss

I adore small Christmas candles, especially the ones that Yankee Candle launch every season. This time I went for: Christmas Cookie, Warm & Cosy and Christmas Eve. Needless to say, they smell divine. The best part is that I can light one up at a time and enjoy a different scent for an hour or two. I can’t really commit to one scent per season, so this gives me more options.

5 Christmas Decoration Ideas You Don't Want to Miss

Besides displaying these cuties on your chimney or coffee table, ensure that you put on some Christmas lights in proximity as well. They’ll create that cosy ambiance. Also, here I placed them behind the candles for extra light warmth.

Christmas Decoration DYI Idea: Create Decorations for the Small Candles

5 Christmas Decoration Ideas You Don't Want to Miss

Furthermore, I love to find new ways of displaying these scented candles. You can even create small decorations out of plastic branches and add on some candies. I’ve found these in a cute Christmas shop, however they’re quite easy to make. It can be a fun DYI project for the whole family.

Remember your Wood Decorations

Wood decorations will make your room feel extremely Christmassy. They’ll give it an authentic vibe and cheer up the empty corners. Although, in my opinion no corner should be empty during Christmas haha! See that nutcracker behind me? There’s no Christmas without it.

Have you considered chocolate as decorations?

As weird as it might sound, you’ll have to trust me on this one. Go to your supermarket’s chocolate isle and turn on your designer vision. All the candy, confectionery and chocolate come into an extra special packaging for Christmas. Why not get some and put them under your Christmas tree? They make a nice decoration and a yummy treat!

These were my 5 Christmas Decoration Ideas You Don’t Want to Miss. Which one are you going to try?

If you’ve started your Christmas shopping, there some great Black Friday perfume deals on Notino that you don’t want to miss out on.

Have a wonderful Christmas,

Pedicure at home can turn into a relaxing ritual. Especially after a Summer where I’ve mainly spent my days at the beach, I feel like I need this more than ever. Unwind while reading this article, together with a warm cup of tea and let’s get silky smooth skin again.

Hello, my soft feet

To begin my pedicure, I’m going to soak my feet in lukewarm water. For a hint of a gorgeous smell, I would add a few drops of essential oils in my water. I normally spend 5 to 10 minutes there, thinking about my day or trying to do a form of a quick meditation. In this way, I would feel like I’m actually winning more time to my day, than just impatiently wait for the water to do its job.

The Scholl Velvet Smooth file

My home pedicure ritual then continues with this velvet smooth file from Scholl infused with marine minerals. My feet had never looked so moisturised and ready for the day ahead. The process: I just take my file and with firm movements I focus on my heels and the sole of my foot. What I love about this product is that it doesn’t take long to see the results. I maximum spend 10 minutes for both of my feet. Furthermore, if you haven’t tried an electric foot file before, I’d say it’s about high time to give this one a go.

Shaping the nails

Shaping my nails comes next. Also, I’m blessed with a shape that I’m happy with, so after I cut my toe nails, I just go over them with a file to ensure they look even. I don’t tend to get cuticles here, but if I do I’m just pushing them back with a stick or my nail file.

Two coats of nail polish, please

As the care part of my ritual has finished, the next thing is to apply my nail polish. I always ensure that I apply two coats of it for a lasting effect. I’ve fell in love with this OPI nail polish. Also, a premium black will give you that expensive looking pedicure, so I love to wear it as often as I can.

Get me ready

As a last step (I promise) of my pedicure at home, I ensure that I’m wearing this Scholl anti-perspirant foot spray. I’ve been using this product for about 3 years now and I have to say that it keeps my feet fresh all day. As basic as it might sound, we have to always look after our skincare, including the one of our feet.

All in all, I’m very happy with how my pedicure turned out and if you’re currently going to the salon to get it done, I can 100% recommend that you try my tips for a faster and more relaxing experience. Get that time in for yourself and disconnect from the everyday stress. Do this for you.

Also, I’m very curious, have you ever tried to create a ritual alongside your pedicure or manicure?

Lots of love,

Andrada

Summer Glowy Make-up looks are obsessing me at the moment. Right now, it’s the perfect time for catching a stunning tan and creating a glowy make-up look to complement it. If you’re hitting that sun bed in your backyard or escaping for a weekend at the beach, you will want to look the part. Have a look at how I created this look while also protecting my skin from UV rays.

Perfect your make-up base

After you moisturise and hydrate your face, you shall gently apply foundation with a beauty blender. I find it very important to perfect my make-up base by also applying a translucent powder in the T-zone after putting foundation on. To get the perfect summer glowy make-up look I’ve used this powder by NYX and it’s one of their best sellers. High Definition Finishing Powder in 01 is truly one of the products that I highly recommend. It has done major effects on setting my make-up from the first time I’ve used it.

SUMMER GLOWY MAKE-UP & SKIN LOOK | NOTINO UK

Creating copper eyes & a nude lip

In order to create copper eyes I am using a NYX pencil. I will apply it directly to my eyelid with gentle touch. However, it’s important to use a subtle technique in order to avoid harsh lines. As a final step I always apply 2 coats of mascara, creating a gorgeous effect of glamurous but still natural eyelashes.

Moving on to the lips section, I have applied the stunning Soft Matte Lip Cream in ‘London’ by NYX. Its touch has the perfect glowy summer make-up look effect, making your lips fuller and also natural.

Remember to wear UV protection

The final touch in reaching the perfect glowy summer make-up look is to always remember to add UV protection. Protecting your skin from UV and pollution usually one of the Avène Skin Care products shall be the best to use. For this look I’ve used the Avène Sun Sensitive Spray SPF 30. Its rich and velvety texture shall smoothen, enlighten your skin and also help in protecting you from UV skin damages.

Moreover, whilst you sun bathe, always remember to hydrate your skin with thermal water. You can also use the Avène Eau Thermale and enjoy good hydration on your skin.

SUMMER GLOWY MAKE-UP & SKIN LOOK | NOTINO UK

You’re now all set for a stunning look whilst you’re out this Summer. If you’re wearing white or nude, this glowy make-up look will POP! If you need any advice on shades or anything like that for the products available on Notino, please contact me below or via DM on Instagram at @notagirlygal. I would love to hear from you 🙂

Summer hair tips are much needed – the heat wave this season will be real. Therefore, I promised myself that this time around, it won’t catch me off guard. If you’ve been following me for a while now, you might now that since this year I’m taking extra care of my hair, including chopping it frequently. Also, my mantra is ‘why have unhealthy hair, even though is long?’. Stay close to discover my three ways to achieve the healthiest hair this Summer.

Summer Hair Tips

Tip 1: Go for Keratin

Firstly, you need to choose your shampoo and conditioner according to their ingredients and the ‘problem’ you’d like to target. I have thin hair, without too much volume. Therefore, I prefer a keratin hair treatment that will bring my hair the nourishment and volume it needs. It’s so important to use keratin, especially during Summer time because your hair is in great need to become fortified internally and externally. Keratin does just that. It takes great care of your locks while making it stronger. This range is also anti-hair loss, perfect for Summer.

Summer Hair Tips | 3 Ways to Healthy Hair

This range basically has two benefits in one: keratin to give you strong hair and other ingredients that prevent hair loss. All at a very reasonable price. How can you resist it?

Tip 2: Start using leave-in treatments

Another summer hair tip from me would be to start using leave-in treatments. The one I’ve been using recently comes from the same brand, Brazil Keratin. It improves the quality of the structure of your hair, while it activates the roots as well. Moreover, it’s not thick at all on my hair. I apply it after I towel dry my hair and I leave it in to work its magic. Therefore, it’s totally worth it!

Tip 3: Protect your hair against heat

At all times, protect your hair against heat. I’ve chosen a Protective Serum from Kallos which provides a glossy protective film around the hair. Also, it leaves my hair shiny and bouncy, without an oily touch. Although I prefer applying it on dry hair, just before I curl it, you can apply it on damp hair and it will work just as well. Remember to always use it even when you blow dry your hair. Using a protective spray for the past year really helped with not having split ends.

LAB Kallos Summer Hair Tips | 3 Ways to Healthy Hair

In Summer, I also love to use cosmetic ingredients such as aloe vera, tea tree or lavender. I love to have a skin peeling once every two weeks. Thus, I’ve chosen this Saloos Naturcosmetics peeling (enriched with Lavender and Tea Trea). I ensure that I exfoliate all my skin, including the beginning of my scalp. That’s my trick for removing build up 😉

Summer Hair Tips | 3 Ways to Healthy Hair

There you have it: my Summer hair tips and three ways to healthy hair. I hope you loved this article as much as I did writing in for you. If there’s one thing you need to take away from today’s post: invest in keratin rich products. Notino has some amazing options for any hair type, targeting a variety of issues.

Until next time,

How to fake tan at home is one of those hot topics at the moment. Hope you’re doing well and that you’re all safe. Since we’re mainly spending time in our homes or outside in the garden, I thought it would be the perfect time for me to show you how to fake tan at home. It’s very simple process and dare I say even enjoyable if you’re in the right mood for it. Follow my tips below – you’ll have a nice experience and a wonderful summer tan in less than 2 hours. 

Choosing the right tanner 

First and foremost, you need to choose the right tanner for yourself. Depending on the intensity you want to go for and the ease of application, you will want to choose a mousse. Your best bet is the St Tropez Self Tan Express from Notino because it offers three levels of tanning according to the time you leave it to develop:

– 1 hour: light tan

– 2 hours: medium tan

– 3 hours: dark tan 

Furthermore, the ease of application really surprised me. But that is not everything, to be fair, I had no patches as a result of the fake tan. I will show you before and after images below. Let’s go into the tanning process! 

Prepare your skin 

Remember to exfoliate your skin one night prior to applying the tanning mouse. I’m using a skin colour balancing exfoliant, but I have used normal scrubs before and the tan process worked perfectly fine. If you don’t have a scrub at home, you could even prepare one with sugar or coffee. 

Remove your clothing 

You might want to remove your clothing and choose the bathroom as your place to tan. Just to avoid mess and stains on your bedsheets or carpet. Remove your clothes and leave them away from the bathroom.

Moisturise your wrists, elbows and knees

This is a trick I’ve learnt from watching loads of videos on tanning last year. It works! Take a tick body cream and apply it on: joints, wrists, elbows, knees and your feed. This will help to prevent patches and will smooth out the mousse. There’s nothing more unpleasant than having a concentration of mousse in one spot. If you’re not moisturising in these spots before, you are very likely to get that. 

Cover your hands

I did not cover my hands while tanning here. You can see that my hands turned a bit darker. To avoid this, you can wear gloves and then apply a small amount of mousse all over them. 

Start the process

You will want to start the process from your feet to your cleavage. Apply mousse on your St Tropez mitt and with circular motions, distribute it evenly on your skin. 

Watch the IGTV video

Fancy watching the video on how to apply fake tan at home? Please watch the full IGTV video on my Instagram (@notagirlygal).

The process continues

After you’ve applied your tanning mousse evenly, it’s time for you to leave it on for it to develop. Depending for how dark you want it, you can leave it on for one, two or three hours. I stayed on my bed, on a sheet that I could easily wash (but it was unstained anyway) and I was watching podcasts and responding to emails.

The results?

I left the tan lotion develop for three hours and it turned out very nice, glowy and summery! I’m beyond happy with the results, there’s no better product for tanning out there.

Remember to wear SPF

Remember, to wear your sunscreen especially when you’re fake tanning to protect your skin. It’s very important! Wearing SPF on your face will help you with keeping a young looking skin.

Head over to Notino to get your summer tan ready – enjoy your time tanning and looking fabulous for the season ahead.

Lots of love,

Andrada (NotAGirlyGal)
