Pixi Beauty Glow Cakes

This post includes gifted products and affiliate links.

I was kindly sent a selection of Pixi products a while ago and I was instantly drawn to the Glow Cakes*(£24.00), which combine subtle contour, blush and highlight in one and are an absolute dream to use. The formula is lovely and the colours are super flattering on most skin tones.

AD: What does healthy mean to you?

This is a paid advertisement for Mobility Plus.

With everyone discussing health on TV, social media and in real life, it is hard not to wonder what actually defines us as healthy or unhealthy. We all know that it's not as simple as someone's BMI and level of activity, but we choose to focus on these two factors the most. But health is so much more complex than weight. Smoking, alcohol, drugs, sun exposure, pollution, toxic chemicals in products and food, stress, the amount of sleep we get, mental illness and so much more! It's not black and white and there's always new research taking many factors into consideration.

AD: Interior Style Tips Based On Your Star Sign

This is a paid advertisement for fishpools.co.uk
I am always switching things up in the house and I don't think I will ever be fully happy with it, till I actually get to design my own property from scratch. From little changes like adding new art, cushions or throws, to painting the walls a different colour, I have done it all and I am always thinking of a new project. But did you know that your star sign can influence your aesthetic taste? Interesting, right?

My St Tropez Self Tanning Favourites

This post contains gifted products and affiliate links
I was a self tan enthusiast for a long time, but in the past few years I completely stopped using it, as I just couldn't be bothered with stained clothes or bedding etc. But... last Summer I attended a St. Tropez event and was introduced to their Purity range with a clear formula and let me tell you - it's an absolute game changer and made me fall back in love with fake tan!

Travelling abroad with Home Exchange

Disclaimer: I was previously gifted points  by the company I am discussing.
I was meaning to write about our trip to France a while ago, but I thought I would wait till this time of year, when most of us start looking into Summer holidays to discuss how we booked last years villa with Home Exchange (previously Guest To Guest). We used their website to book a cottage in Wales (read about it here) last year and then a villa in France during the Summer Holidays and it was pretty straight forward. It does take some effort though, so let me tell you how the process worked for us.

Spring fashion with Elvi

this post contains gifted items
 I was recently contacted by Elvi Clothing who kindly let me pick a few pieces from their website, including this stunning maxi dress which I am completely in love with it! With Spring weather approaching (fingers crossed!) I though I should probably switch up my style a bit and opt for lighter colours and more floral patterns, which I have a soft spot for, but I also chose a navy high neck pleated number (you will see it at the end of this post).

Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lips Review + Swatches

 This post includes gifted products and affiliate links
Are we ready to give up matte liquid lipsticks yet? I don't think so, haha. Can we welcome back other formulas into our lives? YES! Yes, please! After cold Winter months, our lips desperately need more nourishing formulas, like the new Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lips*(£19.00) and I am all about the glossy finish lately.

L'Occitane Rose EDT and Fragrance Waters

This post contains gifted products and affiliate links
I don't own a huge selection of L'Occitane fragrances or products, but everything I have tried from the brand in the past has been incredible and I repurchased a few favourites over the years, like the Almond Shower Oil and Shea Butter Hand Cream. I also feel very sentimental about their Pivoine Delicate EDT, so it's safe to say that I was really excited to try the new Rose EDP* and Burst Of Vitality Fragrance Water* which launched in February nationwide. I think they're a perfect option for Spring/Summer and with a choice of three fragranced waters to compliment the Rose scent, there is something for everyone.
