Glow

Hey guys! So, Spring is full under way and I know a lot of you girls are going to looking for products to help you shine like the sun, so I’ve decided to give you guys a little run down of the products I like to use on my Dry/Combination skin to help keep me hydrated and glowing! Obviously in the sun you don’t need as much moisture as you do in the colder days but I tend to get dry really easily and jugs not a cute look when I leave my house glowing but have foundation dried up in patches on my face. Here are the products I use on a daily basis to help keep me soft and glowing…

Moisturiser/Suncream: Simple
Suncream is very important to using products that already have it mixed in is a good time saver and a way to make sure you don’t forget to put it on.

Facial Oil: Superdrug Vitamin E Facial Oil
This facil oil is an absolute favourite of mine. I actually got this last year to use while I found one I loved just so I could have extra hydration and ended up loving it so much I didn’t bother looking for another facial oil. It leaves my skin glowing and a little goes a long way! I use a couple of drops morning and night and press it into my skin after toning.

Liquid Highlight: Sleek Barekissed Illuminator
This product is so beautiful and you can build it up as you please! I use a little bit mixed in with my foundation on days where I want to looo extra dewy. It also comes in a couple of colours so you can play around and find what works best for you or you enjoy most.

Powder Highlight: Sleek – Solstice Palette
I’ve been using this palette for the last 2 years or so and I’m just as obsessed as I’ve ever been. I do try other highlighters here and there but as far as drugstore highlighters go, this is a firm favourite and nothing seems to ever outdo this one for me.

That’s pretty much the products I use on a daily for extra glow! Hope this is helpful to you guys and please do share any products you’re in love with so I can give them a go too!

Happy Sunday guys! This last week has been a really busy one for me with most days ending very late, hence the lack of posts. But I have been taking lots of pictures of you guys so you will be getting bonus posts during the week! 
I’ve had a lovely Sunday with family and just relaxing and catching up on some sleep. I wanted to give you guys a sneak peak of an amazing shoot I did with one of my favourite photographers; Marianne (@marianneolaleye).
I have so much great photos to share with you guys but for now you’ll get this one as it’s my current “Sunday Mood”.
Hope you’re all having a wonderful week and have an amazing week ahead of you. x

Let’s Hit Pause

I think it’s really important to take a minute to hit pause and take care of yourself, especially during the week. I love taking a bubble bath during the work week, either in the morning or evening, depending on my work schedule. Here’s a little guide on a very simple mid-week pamper mesh…
Ingredients:
Essential Oils of your choice; My fave at the minute
Bubble Bath/Bar: My fave from Lush
Bath Bomb: For added luxury, I love the range of bath bombs at Lush
Set the Tone:
Light some candles; one of my favourites
Pick up your favourite or current read/put on your favourite show or something new your watching: Netflix
And now all that’s left is to get in and enjoy! I wash myself in the bath before I get out but you can do this with whichever products you’re using or loving at the minute. But hopefully this little guide has given you a nudge to take a little bath and help yourself unwind and relax in the midst of a busy week. Feel free to come back and follow the little list whenever you need a pause.

Like a Rose

You all know by now that bubble baths are one of my favourite “me-time” activities and I’m always sharing my baths with you guys, but there are a few things I do before and during to take extra care of myself. When I want to have an extra relaxing pamper routine, there are a few things I do to relax myself even more than just having a bath, so I’ve put a little list together for you guys to have a read and maybe you could incorporate them into your self-care routine as well.
Bubble Bath:
If I’m not using a bubble bar from Lush (usually Rose Jam Bubbleroon), then I’m using a super delicate Rose Bath Essence (own brand) from Boots. It’s very gentle and has a gorgeous fragrance (obviously of roses) which I like to use if I’m adding more pampering products to my bath.
Rose Petals:
I use different flowers for my bath, usually the flowers I pick up on my Friday walk to the farmer’s market in my area, but most of the time I do pick up roses so that’s what I use for my baths the most. Flowers are a really simple way of making your self-care routine more indulgent. Just make sure you’re picking up flowers which are organically grown and don’t have pesticides and chemicals all over them, you don’t want to be soaking in that! 
Essential Oils:
I like adding Rose Essential Oil (currently using this one) in my bath just for extra Rose goodness (can you tell I’m obsessed yet?) but any essential oil you love will work great! And if you don’t have any essential oils at hand then bath bombs are a a great way to get them into your tub with some extra added goodness. Of course my go to for most of my bath products are Lush, click here to browse their bath bomb range!
Face Mask:
Getting in the bath tub with a mask on and some relaxing music is literally one my favourite ways to unwind after my work week is up. Here is my favourite face mask, again, from Lush.
Candles: 
Giving the bathroom a good clean and removing an clutter and lighting some scented candles is a great way to set the mood for bath time. Just make sure you’re being safe while they’re alight! Here is my favourite fragrance to burn.
Those of my tips for a relaxing bath time and unwinding session! If this isn’t new information for you guys then I hope it’s a good reminder to take some you time and look after yourself in the best ways possible. Everything starts with you so it’s so important not to neglect your health and well-being. 
Happy bathing my loves. x
