A Cleaner Lifestyle Part 1: Skincare + review

Throughout my wedding journey I have taken this opportunity to become a happier, healthier me. I am really getting back to basics with my health, lifestyle and diet. I thought I owed it to myself to become more conscious of what I was putting in and on my body and this is where my journey began. This post is Part 1 ! I have followed Nourished Life on Instagram for a while now and I decided it was time to take the plunge and order some of the natural and vegan products they had to offer. I want to look the best and feel my best on my wedding day and I started my lifestyle changes with what I was putting on my skin on a daily basis. I decided to order The Black Chicken Remedies Axilla deoderant paste which had great reviews. I wanted to have something with no aluminium, no alcohol and no paragons or chemicals and also something that could last me all day without reapplying. This was the BEST. DECISION. EVER. I love the deodorant because it makes you smell …

Plantae Certified Organic Skincare

Plantae Certified Organic Skincare Roundup

Plantae organic skincare range has slowly become my holy grail skincare brand over the summer period. I have been fortunate enough to have been sent some great products from the team at Bare PR and Plantae. I have already written a previous review of Plantae’s Hydrating Essential Rose Water a must have summer essential and since then I have been taking my time to try the eye cream, cleanser and day cream of the same range. I decided to take at least few weeks to try the products so I could accurately note how they affected my skin positively or negatively. A common mistake with people trying skincare is they don’t give themselves long enough to gauge the benefits and changes that different products can have. Ever since my battle with skin problems I never thought I would find something as calming nourishing and hydrating as the Plantae skincare range. Going natural in 2014 was my last ditched attempt at getting great skin and after trying a vast majority of skincare both prescription and pharmacy strength I …

I What I use primarily on my face is the beautiful and natural Trilogy Advanced Skincare Range.I have a history of bad skin so for me it is to really important to look after my skin in a holistic way. The Trilogy Advanced Skincare Range is perfect for this as it treats my skin with natural ingredients, slowly fades my scars with rosehip oil and isn’t harmful to me as it has simple natural ingredients and not tons of chemicals.

Karen Murrell Lipstick Review

Springs here and summers coming! So what better way to celebrate than with a beautiful bright lipstick from Karen Murell!  <br></br> These lipsticks come in a great range of colours I tried Coral Dawn perfect for my olive skin, but still wonderfully pigmented for a pop of colour. It’s Suited to a variety of skin tones, porcelain, olive or chocolate brown and one application of Coral Dawn transforms lips to welcome the warmer months with sunshine-like brightness and head-turning happiness.  I have never used this brand before, but the designer in me is so in love with the beautiful packaging it’s very floral and feminine.  <br></br> The lipstick finish I would describe as a Demi matte finish and the orange tones and the  demi matte- matte finish are currently a very in thing on the catwalks with the likes of Nanette Lepore, Donna Karan, Prabal Gurung, Rag & Bone, and DKNY using it in their recent 2014 shows. This will be an on trend colour its perfect for the warmer months as Karen Murrell creative director …
