Brand Overview - Pai Skincare the sensitive skin experts

I have a new brand overview for you, this time from one of my all time favourite skincare brands Pai Skincare. I discovered Pai shortly after I started exploring natural and organic beauty brands, before this blog began and it has easily been one of my most repurchased over the years.

New in: Willowberry Skincare

There have been some fantastic new launches lately and Willowberry skincare is definitely one of my favourites. I have known Jenni, the founder of Willowberry for some time now through her work in the beauty industry and I was both surprised and excited to receive an email letting me know she had created her own line.

The Yogi Tea #7Minuteschallenge (Sponsored)

**This post is sponsored by Yogi Tea**

Life is hectic and it can be a challenge to find time for ourselves. As a busy, work from home mum, I try to incorporate short moments in to my day to rest, focus or even pamper myself. These small moments of calm have become even more important since I had my second child, life with a toddler can be full on, so I need to find small ways to reset and unwind. For this reason I am delighted to team up with Ayurvedic tea brand Yogi Tea to bring you one of my favourite pamper routines in their #7Minuteschallenge. Read all about the challenge on the Yogi Tea Blog

Christmas Gift guide - Gift sets, stocking fillers and home fragrance

It's that time of year again when we all start to think about which Christmas jumper to wear, what drink to have with our Christmas dinner and what to buy for Grandma who has absolutely everything. I loving putting the annual gift guides together, they are really fun to do and I hope you find some ideas for things to buy for others or to buy for yourself. My favourite part of these gift guides is showcasing natural and ethical brands, there is an amazing amount of choice and it means you can  choose something that not everyone will have. 

Aromatherapy Associates Miniature bath and shower oil collection

When I think of Aromatherapy brands, Aromatherapy Associates is one of the pioneering names that springs to mind. With a great variety of blends and classic packaging.

The Formula Botanica conference 2017

Last weekend I was invited to attend the Formula Botanica conference in central London. Formula Botanica is an online accredited organic cosmetic science school run by Director Lorraine Dallmeier. I have known Lorraine online for some time and last year she kindly invited me to be a speaker at the conference, talking to the students and graduates about beauty blogging and how to work with bloggers, which was a fantastic experience.

Weleda Wild Rose creamy body wash and Cream bath

Usually at this time of year I turn to my favourite Weleda scent which is Pomegranate. Pomegranate has a slight warm undertone to the scent, think vanilla and blood oranges, comforting but still fresh and fruity. But lately I have also been reaching for Wild Rose, slightly more delicate, floral but with a gorgeous slightly spicy undertone.

Brand Focus: Inika mineral make up, vegan, cruelty free and organic

Inika is one of my absolute favourite organic, mineral make up brands. I have been a customer for around eight years and many of their products are make up bag favourites. Inika is one of the best mineral make up brands I have found with gorgeous clean ingredients lists and impeccable quality, they are also certified vegan, cruelty free, halal and organic. Recently the brand has been bringing out lots of new products and they have also had a bit of a make over so I thought it would be the perfect time to talk about my collection!

Boxwalla beauty box - Recap and favourites

Recently I have been a little out sync with posting the reviews of the Boxwalla beauty boxes, even though I have been posting about them on social media, I wanted to recap the boxes I have received in the last six months and some of my favourite discoveries from the boxes. For anyone new to Boxwalla it is a bi-monthly subscription service covering, food, film, books and beauty (you choose which one you would like) that is based in the USA. Each of the boxes is themed and sneak previews are posted on the Boxwalla social media channels, so if you are curious I highly recommend following them, especially on Instagram.

New in: A'kin Weightless Rosehip oil

Australian brands have a history of doing natural very well indeed and A'kin is a fantastic example of this. A'kin provide a great selection, consistent quality and value for money. It is also a brand I have used for a long time and have bit of a fondness for, their recent rebrand brings the look bang up to date but they are still providing the same great formulas we know and love.
