Hey all πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹

It's week 25 as #faceofmint
Yaaaaay!!! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ‘πŸ‘

I was so excited for this week!
Me and my lovely mammy were heading up to the Bloom garden festival in the Phoenix park, Dublin!!
As you could imagine, with me being a florist... This was like heaven to me!
And with my mam being a florist too, well..... We were basically in our element!! lol πŸ˜„πŸŒΈπŸŒΌπŸŒ»

It was a proper girls day out! πŸ‘­
We went up on the train nice and early to make the most of the day... We wandered round all of the beautiful gardens...we had a little vino πŸ·πŸ˜‰, listened to music and had some seriously good munches on the food stalls πŸ˜‹πŸ“πŸ…πŸ©πŸ•β˜•
Absolute bliss!!

We even bumped into the gorgeous Sarah, Mints manager 😊
Sarah was there on behalf of Kilkenny tourism, giving information on places to stay and all the great amenities and things to do in our lovely city and county 🐱

.....Of course, we couldn't miss out on this chance for a selfie!! lol πŸ“·πŸ˜™

......And thanks to Sarah and the fab girls in Mint, I felt "selfie ready" πŸ˜„

The day beforehand I had popped up to mint for some beautifying!

I first had my appointment with Lesley to get a new colour gelish on my toes.
We picked out a nice blue colour called "one cool cat"  And Lesley got started by removing the old colour, filing and buffing the nails and doing any necessary cuticle work 😊

When she was done with the nail prep, she applied the colour and I was delighted with how the turned out!! πŸ‘£

My next appointment was with Nadine to have my gelish redone on my fingernails. As usual, Nadine done all of the nail prep and then we decided on what colour.

Now because, I was going to be going to bloom, I really wanted to do a mixture of nice bright colours to reflect the beautiful colours that I would be seeing up there! So I went with blues, bright orange and gold on different fingers ........and they were fab!!!!!!
The gelish colours used were: "one cool cat", "I'm brighter than you"  and "All that glitters is gold"
I just loved my Bloom inspired nails πŸ˜ŠπŸ’…

Next it was on to the spray tan! Yay!!!
I just love having a little colour. I myself just feel a little more confident with a tan and feel, even my clothes look better on with a little bronzed help πŸ˜‰
Mint use the Vita Liberata range and I have had it done here before and I have to say it is by far, the best tan I have had and used!!

Vita Liberata is the world’s first completely non-toxic tanning brand, with spray tan solutions free from all those nasty parabens, alcohol and chemicals.

It uses advanced Organic Technology "Advoganic" and natural skincare extracts that are key to offering more than just a tan. So not only does it give you a great colour, it's actually super kind to your skin too πŸ‘πŸ‘

This tan is is Hollywood's best kept skin secret!!
First off, it's odour-free, natural looking and gives lasting skin enhancing results.
It has a host of celebrity and A-List fans, like Sofia Vergara, Sienna Miller, Emma Watson....... AND.... it was also Victoria Secret approved, being used to create the natural glow on the the likes of Gigiand Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner!! 😱

Well if it's good enough for Victoria Secret Angels, then it's good enough for us!! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

I went for the medium spray tan. It dried in super quickly and I wasn't left feeling sticky for ages after βœ…

I left it to develop overnight and rinsed it off in the shower the next morning and I was left with a gorgeous caramel colour 😍 ...no smelly fake tan odour πŸ‘ƒ  ....no orange in sight!! 🍊🚫

I was absolutely thrilled with it!!

Of course bare in mind, it is important to prep your skin before a spray tan by exfoliation all over in the days leading up to it to get the best results βœ…
And to prolong your tan, you should keep it hydrated daily with a body moisturizer and that's about it 😊😊

Victoria Secret runway, here I come!!!!!!!!! lol πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜™πŸ˜™πŸ˜™

That's all for this week guys,
If you'd like to get Summer ready, give the girls in Mint a call 😊

Bye for now πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹
