Getting prepped for Valentines day is no easy task. It's the one day of the year that I always want to feel sexy and like arm candy for my husband-to-be as we take our seats at our regular favourite restaurant. Tonight we will be dining in candlelight, eating Thai food, which is of course my favourite.
My makeup look today is bold, yet demure. I'm wearing fake eyelashes with black cat flick mascara, coupled with relatively nude blushers and lipstick.
Stepping away from the makeup, my hair is one of my problem areas. It never does as it's told, so on Valentines day I know I have to be extra vigilant. My approach this year was to invest in a good sturdy brush and a small hair kit that would give me the thick, long and wavy tresses I desired for this evening. Of course I'm wearing hair extensions, but it's important my own hair is in good health. When the rest of your hair looks hideous, hair extensions don't blend that well - especially when it comes to my hair.

My next fail safe hair kit was the Berber Oil hair mask and shampoo. The Berber Oil duo have argan oil in them that help restore dry and damaged hair. The hair mask can be left on for up to five minutes for extra shine, which has proved rather successful for this evening. Finally, the kit includes a lovely mini berber oil perfect for blowdrying and keeping away all the damage My hair looks the healthiest it has been in a while. The Berber oil kit costs around £9.75.
I'm looking forward to my meal out this evening and feel incredibly glamorous What are you doing for valentines day?
