The Weekend Post #50: The Ultimate TWP

Today marks my 50th (!?!?!) Weekend Post. Which means there’s been 50 posts full to the brim of preening, pampering and primping with a hell’a load of skincare, body and haircare treats along the way with some Sunday beauty chores thrown in as well. Phew. These are easily my favourite posts of the week to write and to test out products for – who doesn’t love an hour long soak in the bath all in the name of blogging research? But to celebrate, somewhat, this milestone I thought I’d note down my favourite posts and products from this category that I happily partake in most weekends. These are rituals that (I hope) will never go away, welcome to The Ultimate Weekend Post…

One product I use everyday Sunday is the aptly named Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo which I did a whole post dedicated to here. And by golly does it deserve it’s own post – I think I’m now on my third bottle of this stuff and it cleanses my locks like no other. I’ve recently had my hair coloured (post on it’s way!), so I’m going to have to rein in my use of this but I’ll still be massaging this into my scalp on extremely greasy hurr days. Three face masks that make up a ritual that I try to squeeze in time to complete around the time that the shizzy TV reality results shows, make up ‘The Triple Threat Facial‘ – you remember that one? Some weekends I only manage the time to apply one and call it a day but if I’m feeling a little luxe or my skin is playing up big style then this is one of my favourite routines to follow. Sunday night, always means tanning night (much to the boys disgust), and although I’ve been trying out some new tans recently, nothing compares to the Xen-Tan Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe, which featured in my tanning round-up here. It’s a dream to apply, leaves my skin feeling moisturised and looking nice and sunkissed by the morning and is the last thing I do before I get tucked in on a Sunday. Finally a Weekend Post, wouldn’t be a Weekend Post without a candle sneaking it’s way in would it? It hasn’t popped up in a TWP of it’s own, but Diptyque’s Amber Oud is currently creating a warm, comforting and Christmas ambiance to long ol’ Sunday routine.

So that’s documented what I’ll be doing tonight and happy pampering everyone – here’s to more 50 Weekend Posts *raises a champagne flute while sitting in a big bubbly bath* – oh I wish

Since your Triple Threat Face Mask post I’ve been doing it at least once every two weeks and I can’t believe, still after many times of doing it, how amazing it leaves my skin feeling! Lovely post Anna, and happy 50th Weekend Post! xo

    I just picked up the Bumble and Bumble Sunday shampoo on yours and Estee’s recommendations and wow!!! Amazing. I have picked up quite a few other items, Origins Drink Up, on your recommendation and can’t wait to try them all! Keep up the great work (:

  • Andreanne X

    I really want to try out the Sunday shampoo! My hair hasn’t been great lately, it’s dull, crispy and just generally pretty sad-looking.

  • Hearts&Crosses

    50th! Congrats and keep them up!! Love everything origins related, hope you enjoyed your weekend


  • sarirah

    50th eh? Time sure flies. I’ve probably read every single one and each of them has convinced me that I need another skincare product to fuel my skincare junkie tendencies. Keep up the amazing blogging and I look forward to reading numero 51. πŸ˜‰ x

  • Eleanor

    Ooh, I love an indulgent Sunday pamper too. I’ve been using the Toni & Guy Cleanse Advanced Detox shampoo. Not been wowed by it though. The Sunday shampoo is next on my clarifying list, just wish it was a little more purse-friendly.

  • Eleanor

    I have the exact same faucet o.O
    Love your weekend posts! πŸ™‚
