The Abbey Rose Honey & Spice Candle

I am an absolute sucker for candles. There’s nothing quite like lighting a candle and enjoying the delicious scent that wafts through the room. In fact, as I type this post I currently have one of my favourite candles burning. It’s a Sunday afternoon, I’m sitting in front of the heater, the rain is pounding on the roof, and I’m…

Safer Beauty … So What Should I Avoid?

Today I wanted to talk about the ingredients to avoid if you are looking for  safer and more natural beauty products and cosmetics. Now I do not claim to know everything about this, I’m certainly no scientist, and I’m still in the stages of learning what to avoid too. But there are a few key ingredients that seem to be…

MOTD: Living Nature

Living Nature is a New Zealand brand which I’ve talked quite a bit about on the blog in the past. It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of their Summer Bronzing Powder and their Luminous Pressed Powder, and these are both products that I use on a day to day basis. Living Nature are a natural brand, and they use…

Naturigin 4.0 Brown Hair Colour

When I started my natural beauty journey, the one beauty product I was concerned about finding a replacement for, was hair dye. I’ve always used the Nice N Easy brand, as its easy and gives me the colour I’m after, however I’ve always been aware of how this product really isn’t good for me or my hair. I did some…

Rhino Repair By Oasis Beauty

This year was one of the first winters that I’ve really felt the cold, and as a result  my skin has been suffering; it’s been feeling really dry and my poor hands have been rough and cracked. I’ve also been experiencing some mild eczema on the insides of my knees and on my elbows, and I’m pretty sure this is…

The Living Nature Thickening Mascara

I can’t tell you how much fun I’m having on my new safer beauty journey. I’m getting the chance to explore new brands, new ingredients, and new products and it’s such a refreshing change from the same-same products I was reviewing. Some of the brands I’ve stumbled across, I’ve never heard of and I get to experience and try out…

The Nude By Nature Contour and Highlight …

When I decided to begin my natural beauty journey, I was tasked with replacing about 99% of my makeup. While I had quite a few natural skincare products, I owned hardly any natural makeup, and many of the products that I thought might be safe, really weren’t.  I knew a few people who had been using the Nude By Nature…

The Linden Leaves Soothing Eye Makeup Remover

Linden Leaves has been a brand I’ve liked for quite some time now, and every product I’ve tried from them over the years, I’ve really enjoyed. When Oh Natural recently had a sale on their Linden Leaves range, I decided it was the perfect time to pick up a couple of things, including an eye makeup remover that I had…

The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Foundation …

Just a quick post tonight, but I wanted to share with you this little gem that I came across at the Body Shop  quite a few months back now. I actually own two of these brushes because I love them so much and they are currently my go-to’s for applying mineral foundation The Extra Virgin Mineral Foundation Brush is a…

So Why The Change?

I’m still so excited to have been able to share my big news with you all on Monday and I’m really excited about the new direction of my blog. This has been a big decision, but it was also an easy one and I can’t tell you how happy I am to be able to share it. I’ve been finding…
