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 …

Valentines Day

Valentines Day 2015 Gifts for Him & Her

Valentines Day, the one day people hate, loath or enjoy ! For me it is a bit of both and being generally crap at gift giving my other half is either surprised completely (fluke) or  possibly underwhelmed. V Day the day where both halves of a new relationship are trying to get a non- awkward gift for each other that isn’t to creepy and for seasoned couples who aren’t sure if they should bother or not. Then theres the other side of Valentines Day where singles either cry into their wine and eat chocolate while cuddling up on the couch with their cat, or really simply don’t care. But no matter what everyone needs adorable love themed gifts and no matter if you have left it to the last minute I have complied some sure fire gift ideas for HIM and HER.

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 …

My Skincare Routine: Au Naturel

A few posts ago I told you that I was going to share with you my skin care routine and what I put on my face this is that post! 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.

The Amazing Trilogy Everything Balm Reformulated!

I was pleasantly surprised about receiving the reformulated Trilogy Everything Balm. The packaging is really cute using an orange, red and pink scheme with insects, perfectly summer themed. What’s even more important is that it’s packed full of new ingredients. Pawpaw fruit extract is new to the formulation; rich in phytochemicals, which provide antibacterial and skin healing benefits.
