Weekend Friday Favourites

I hope you’re having a great weekend! This weekend’s a puente here as Monday’s a festivo or holiday. Which is perfect as if the weather apps are right there’s some beach siesta time to be spent!

A short and sweet Weekend Friday Favourites of things that have caught my eye or made me smile this week, so I’ll get right to it.

Druni PerfumeriaIMG_5729

My local centre commercial recently opened a new Druni perfumeria. Usually I don’t go in these type of cosmetic shops as most products aren’t cruelty free. Something said go in and I’m glad I did. A whole corner dedicated to ecological and organic brands! I think I spend 45 minutes smelling, deciding, being overloaded with the choice of body scrubs. I kinda went a little crazy stocking up. My reasoning better to stock up than go in every week and end up buying twice as much. I’m keen to try out all the cruelty free, palm oil free, made down the road in Valencia body soaps now I can’t get Pacifica body soap from iherb.com anymore. A lot of brands are Estonian, Polish and Spanish which was another surprise as I don’t hear much about European ecological brands. Be sure to see them in up and coming Beauty Finds!

New HairIMG_6058

Pas Peluquería made my hair healthy again after the summer with a long overdue OWay rebuilding treatment and some autumn fall equinox moon magic. The ends were a little fried as while I love the sea, my hair doesn’t.

Side Lunge to Leg Adduction with Plate

This is a move I picked up from Tone It Up and adapted for extra leg/bum work. Start with feet hip distance apart, holding a plate on the side of your bum, perform a side lunge keeping feet facing forward, making sure the knee doesn’t go over the toes, weight in heels, with good posture and abs engaged. Step back to start, keeping the plate on the side of the bum perform a leg addiction with the same leg that side lunged before returning to start. The plate adds more resistance. I then later in this circuit targeted the glutes/bum some more with BOSU up and overs or fast moving squats up and over. I felt them later!
