What I Wore Wednesday: Natural You

After a crazy few weeks, including Blondie Boy getting the chicken pox, I was more than happy to go for a night of pampering at Natural You Salon, Scottish Beauty Salon of the year 2013. I headed up with the lovely Paula and with only a slight sat nav hitch we made it to the salon in East Kilbride.

Natural You Salon has over 20 years experience in the Beauty Industry and recently underwent a glamorous new makeover. We were invited to try out some of their signature treatments on the night and first up I had a PRIORI® CoffeeBerry® facial.  Now I'm not normally a facial kind of girl; I tend to have sensitive skin and treatments leave me broken out and red. I was assured that Coffeeberry was for me and would act like a peel without any redness or irritation. I was a bit skeptical if I am honest but I had no need to be. My skin was all glowy and unbelievably smooth afterwards and I didn't break out or go red. It was so relaxing and I could see myself having them again now I know how my skin reacts.

Next up celebrity make-up artist Kevin Moore converted me again! I almost never wear foundation. I just don't like it. The new Vitage® Colour Minerals create a fresh faced, healthy look and are made using only natural occurring minerals that are mined and perfectly mixed to create concentrated colour pigments that perform differently to other minerals.  Kevin tried out the  Natural Daily Perfector mineral mousse on me and I was really surprised. The weightless formula delivers amazing coverage without feeling like you're wearing a mask. I've actually got in on today which is shocking because I never manage anything other than eye makeup before work but it really is that quick and easy.



To finish up my night of pampering I got a Shellac manicure in Grape Gum. It's no shocker I went for purple and I'm such a fan of Shellac manicures. With the proper care (almond oil before bed and in the morning) can last up to two weeks. Who wouldn't want a chip free manicure? If you are someone who is really rough on your hands they also offer a gel base to make your Shellac longer, too.

It was a really lovely evening and I'd 100% go back again. All the staff were so lovely and really did have your best interests in mind when recommending treatments. I also got to catch up with my bloggy bestie Susan who got a stunning makeover of her own.

It was a cold and dreary night and since I'd been home playing nurse to chicken poxy all day I didn't really have it in me to get super glammed up. So I decided to go a little bit rock and a little bit glam and a whole lot of comfy with my outfit.




Guns 'N Roses tee- Target
The Flirt Jeans- Old Navy

My BFF Sabrina got me this amazing Crown and Glory Gala Glitter Bow for Christmas and I've not had a reason to wear it yet so I decided tonight was the night. Ignore my wonky sleeves on my tee; originally I had both rolled but then I had a facial and got all blissed out and forgot!  I got the tee on mega-sale at Target; it's a men's tee but with the exception of the longer sleeves I like them because they are a longer fit than most women's tees and in general way cheaper.

In my head I was channeling the fab Miss West End Girl but I'm still not 100% if this outfit was a hit or a miss even though I got lots of compliments on my bow.


What do you think? Do giant glitter boys and 80's rock tees work together?

Your pink hair and purple nails are adorable. I also love the pink hair piece. But my favorite thing is that band tee.


My pleasure being one of the first to link up this week. Stop by the blog and show some love.


Happy Wednesday, Ada. =)

I love that pretty bow, it is such a fun, pretty thing to wear.xx

Melaina25 said...

I've been trying to use a color supplement rather than foundation as well! I love the difference :)

Melaina25 said...

So sorry to hear about Blondie Boy but it's better to get chicken pox as a child as opposed to an adult which is worse. Love the color you chose, I get Shellac manicures every 3 weeks and enjoy the staying power.

Melaina25 said...

I love shellac manicures. I only treat myself to them every few months though. Your day of pampering sounds like a much needed treat.

Melaina25 said...

love the manicure! I've never tried shellac, basically because I'm too lazy to drive somewhere to have my nails done... but yours look so good! :)

Melaina25 said...

Ahh, I have always wanted to try Shellac! I love that color!

Melaina25 said...

I hope you son is getting better. I had chicken pox as a kid and all I have to remember it by is the giant scar on the bridge of my nose. Great color on your manicure.

Melaina25 said...

I do find Shellac lasts well--about 2 weeks for me. They offer a gel base though for anyone who's hard on their hands, too.

Melaina25 said...

Go for it! Grape Gum for everyone :)

Melaina25 said...

Thank you! I've got the best BFF :)

Melaina25 said...

Chicken pox are the worst right? Luckily he didn't have too many on his face.

Melaina25 said...

DO IT! You won't regret it; it is especially amazing if you are going out of town and don't want to worry about your nails chipping.
