BLOGMAS – DAY 21 – December Favourites

Hey guys,

Welcome to the 21st day of my blogmas! Only 4 days left! Today’s post is going to be my favourite products from this month!

So let’s get started!

Body care

Sleepy, mask of magnamity, snow fair body conditioner from Lush and VeeBeautyLdn’s eyelash and eyebrow serum and two lip balms. I love using all of these, definitely would recommend for you guys to try it out!

The body scrub by what’s in it for me, smells edible and leaves your skin feeling incredible! (Haha rhymes)

Fragrance

So fragrance were kind enough to gift me with these beauties at the Blogosphere Christmas festival last weekend and they all smell so lovely! So affordable and pretty! You can purchase these from most boots stores and would make great stocking fillers!

Face mask

Im loving this face mask at the moment! You can check out my full review on L’Oréal’s pure clay masks here.

Makeup

This is a recent buy of mine from Urban Decay and it is the Heavy Metal palette. Don’t let this picture fool you, this palette is HUGE well.. in comparison to their other palettes. I swatched it in the shop and bought it then and there that’s how much I loved it! Will do some looks using it soon!

Hair care

I was also luckily enough to be gifted these at the Blogosphere Christmas festival too by Ogx! I LOVE their hair products! Been using their shampoo and conditioners for maybe 2 years now, my hair definitely thanks me for it!

Books

This is my favourite book of this month! I love it! Check out my review for it here.

Netflix

These are my two favourite series at the moment, not just for this month but they’re what I’m watching this month! If you haven’t seen either or any of them I definitely suggest that you should!!

Christmas Eve bubble bar

The magic of Christmas bubble bar

Star light star bright

To purchase any of these you can get them from a Lush store, from the Lush app or online here

Thank you for reading today’s post!

What is your favourite Lush bathbomb?

BLOGMAS – DAY 13 – Winter Self Care Tips

Hey guys,

Welcome to day 13 of Blogmas! I am pretty shocked that I’ve made it this far tbh but here we are!

Today’s post is some winter self care tips! As I know Christmas is all about giving and loving others it is also important to take care of yourself!

Here are some tips, I hope you find them helpful:

Get plenty of fresh air – I know it’s tempting to stay snuggled up in bed watching Christmas movies and drinking hot drinks during this season but it is so important to get fresh air. To make it more festive you could go visit Christmas markets and Christmas lights, that way you’re getting fresh air in a festive way!

Pamper yourself – as it’s the holidays take this time to completely relax and de-stress! Face masks, manicures, bath bombs…you name it! Do something that makes you happy.

Organisation – this season gets super busy and hectic for the most of us, and if you’re like me you can’t survive without a diary/planner. Without mine I’d be lost as my memory is like a fish. Organisation doesn’t just work by note form it also could be in your bedroom, organising a shelf, cupboard or draw can really help to declutter your space. You don’t need to declutter all at once, do bit by bit and make it fun! (Well as fun as you can)

Sleep more – yes more! Sleep is SO important for your health and is a good way to recuperate after the stress of Christmas. Resist that urge to watch another episode on Netflix, I know it’s hard but it’ll still be there tomorrow! Your body will thank you for even one more hour of sleep!

Take a break from social media – I really do feel that we are all very dependent on social media nowadays (myself included, I can imagine Graham nodding his head right now as he calls me ‘hooked’). Don’t get me wrong social media is great! But too much….not so great. This links along with the pamper yourself point. We all need some ‘me’ time, without it we would crack up. You can be the most chattiest person alive and still need a break from socialising. And like the famous saying “too much of a good thing is bad”.

When I say take a break I don’t mean be drastic and not go on your phone for a week, because people will definitely worry! Just take a few minutes out of your day to put down your phone, read a book, have a bubble bath, meditate or go for a walk! It definitely works as I’m starting to try myself! I do this before I go to bed, I put my phone down, read some of my book then go to bed; and I’ve definitely been sleeping better since!

Spend time with those you love – it is so important to spend quality time with those who are close to you, that may be your girlfriend/boyfriend, best friend, friend or family member. Every moment is a memory so let’s make each moment count! Spending time with others doesn’t need to be expensive! It could be as simple as a movie day or a pamper day, I love having these sort of days as it’s nice to just chill out together and catch up.

Be positive – yes it is hard sometimes to maintain positive but even just one quote a morning can really help. Standing in front of your mirror and saying to yourself “you can do this” became you can! You can do anything that you put your mind to! Don’t let anyone tell you any different.

Embrace the season – don’t be a Scrooge! It’s Christmas! Eat that chocolate if you want too, buy that dress if you want too, it’s okay to treat yourself! (I tell myself that every time I buy myself a new palette from urban decay or boots..)

The ultimate self care tip is to love yourself!

These are all I have today. I hope they have helped you to think of ways to take care of yourself this festive season!

Thank you for reading today’s post, your ongoing support really does mean the world to me!

Product review: ERA Natur – Bilka

Hey guys,

Today I am writing a review on two products I have got from ERA Natur, this is an amazing company which produce high quality cosmetic products that are all natural and contain herbal extracts and minerals.

We are passionate about using products for personal hygiene and cosmetics made with natural ingredients and with minimum chemistry. – ERA Natur

I ordered two products from ERA Natur which were the Bilka upgrape caffeine + body care – slim fit effect and the Bilka intimate hydrating gel wash.

Bilka upgrape body care caffeine+ slim fit effect cream

What does it do?

It is a body cream with a slimming and firming effect. It’s designed especially for stimulating the blood circulation and reducing fat. If used daily and in combination with the right activities and diet, a visible slimming effect can be noticed!

What does it have in it?

  • Caffeine – a proven stimulant which increases the blood circulation, helps for disposal of fat and water from the body.
  • Combined extract of horse chestnut, ivy & green tea– drains retained water, tightens and smooths the skin
  • Organic grape extract – an antioxidant, strengthens the collagen and elastin structure in the skin
  • Macadamia oil – deeply regenerates and hydrated the skin
  • Shea butter – rich in vitamins A, E & F
  • D-pantherol – increases skins moisture
  • Vitamin E – maintains skins elasticity
  • Menthol – gives immediate feeling of freshness and cooling

How do I use it?

Apply to wanted areas (e.g. stomach, thighs, arms..etc) with massage movements, use after a shower/bath twice a day.

My review

I’ve used this for the past week and I am definitely starting to see a slight difference! I’m using this on my stomach as that is the area I’m focusing on losing weight. Alongside this cream I am eating healthier (mostly) doing more exercise and drinking more green tea. I love the smell of menthol and can definitely feel the soothing feeling straight after. However if you dislike the smell of menthol I wouldn’t recommend this as the smell is quite strong.

My rating : 5/5

Bilka intimate hydrating gel wash

I mistakenly ordered this thinking it was a face wash, I was wrong. This is a cleansing wash for your intimate area.

What does it do?

It provides delicate cleansing in the intimate area without drying out the skin, gives a sense of freshness and comfort

What does it have in it?

  • Organic rose water – hydrates and freshens up, eliminates dryness and discomfort
  • Glycerine – restores skin elasticity
  • Bio ecological agent – neutralises harmful bacteria
  • Lactic acid – soothes and maintains the optimal PH in the intimate area

How do I use it?

Apply an appropriate dose, lather in your hands, wash and rinse with water

My review

I’m not going to go into great detail with this as that’s a bit personal. However after using this for a week I can definitely say it does make the intimate area feel fresher and more hydrated. It also smells really nice.

My rating: 5/5
