Neom Cocooning Candle

I was really excited to take part in the #NeomStressLessChallenge , simply because I find all their candles an absolute godsend when it comes to dealing with stress and anxiety.  The April campaign features a 3 wick Cocooning Home Candle*(£39.50), a  light and fruity scent with comforting floral notes, described as 'the perfect antidote to tired, weary bodies in need of some well-deserved me-time'.

Love Me Beauty April 2014

Love Me Beauty are definitely the most impressive subscription box service on the market and every single month they deliver a fabulous selection of products. After looking at the April menus, I opted for edition 2, simply because I really wanted the Models Own Nail Art Pen :) I am happy with the rest of the contents as well and the lifestyle extra made the box even better!

Pur Minerals are known for their skin friendly makeup products and this Spring they added even more goodness to their formulas. The new range features two wine-extract based ingredients: Resveratrox and Vitisin, both packed with anti-oxidants.

Planning Summer Holidays

When it comes to holidays, planning one with a toddler is probably the most stressful task for mums (and dads). We actually booked 2 weeks in France for the end of July and I am already worried about the journey, how Zachary will handle it etc... He will be turning 3 this year and he hasn't been abroad yet, so I am excited and stressed at the same time. We are also considering going for a short break within the UK and it will definitely be a seaside location.

Homemade Nut Milks with Vitamix

I eliminated cows milk from my diet about 2-3 years ago, but I do eat small amounts of yogurt or cheese occasionally. Everything in moderation is perfectly fine in my opinion. I replaced cows milk with almond or hazelnut milk and my brand of choice is usually Alpro. I also love coconut milk and I use it with porridge and in everyday cooking. Yum! When I was sent the Vitamix Pro 500* to try, I was really excited about making my own nut milks. It is much cheaper and you know exactly what goes into it. No additives, no added sugar, just fresh, delicious homemade milk! I was also sick of running out of nut milk, so this is life changing for me :) Soo... how do you make nut milk? It's super easy!

Bumble and Bumble Creme De Coco Range

My hair is a real pain in the butt. It is fine and flat most of the time , but sometimes it becomes dry and frizzy... How is that even possible? I also have damaged ends from styling it with heat, so I have to use repairing products, which always comes with a risk of weighing the hair down. Thankfully, I was introduced the the Creme De Coco Range from Bumble and Bumble and I fell in love with it!
