Amelia Moss Natural Skincare*

Amelia Moss is a skincare company providing 100% natural oils, cleansers, toners and face masks at more than reasonable prices. Before we get on to the effectiveness of the products can we take a second to praise Amelia for the packaging because my heart skipped a beat when I opened this package. Not only is Amelia bang on trend by using the copper wrapping but the personalised boxes of products add a touch of luxury that really sets this company apart from others. I was gifted a bottle of pure rose water, Jojoba Oil and Argan Oil and couldn't wait to start testing out some natural skincare remedies.

Mate, have you got a HydrateM8?

Yes, this is a while post dedicated to water bottle and no, I haven't lost the plot because this is the water bottle to end all water bottles. I am terrible when it comes to staying hydrated, I'm just not a particularly thirsty person - there's been times when I've done full days without drinking water. I've always worked in offices that have had water tanks in and when I've been on a health kick I've tried to make a conscious effort to drink a certain amount of cups per day. This usually resulted in me getting ahead of myself and downing too many cups of water in one sitting.

Spectrum 4 Piece Contour Face Set*

When Spectrum Brushes kindly offered to send me their 4 piece Contour Set I did a little dance - I have been lusting over the Spectrum brush collections for a while so you can imagine my excitement at getting my paws on my own set to try out. Spectrum hold the most instagrammable collection of make-up brushes on the earth, and if that's not a good enough reason to need something in your life I don't know what is; not to mention the fact that I have read so many positive reviews about these brushes as well as Spectrum as whole.

Lavender Fields OOTD

Lavenders blue dilly dilly lavenders green, actually it's purple. Last week Luke and I decided decided to take a little trip to Hitchin Lavender to wander around the Lavender fields and take some pretty pictures. The lavender fields are absolutely beautiful and at only £4.50 per adult including a bag to fill your own cuttings of lavender in, it's dead affordable too! There's also a beautiful sunflower field where you can pick your own massive sunflower for 50p.

Do you know your normal?

Contrary to popular belief I'm not opposed to discussing periods, especially when having sensible discussions can lead to potentially saving someone's life. When Ami contacted me asking if I wanted to get on board with the fantastic know your normal campaign, I jumped at the chance.

St Tropez In Shower Tan

Firstly, what kind of blogger are you if you don't have this fake succulent from Newlook in your blog photos? Secondly, my bank balance and Luke will be pleased to know that I didn't bankrupt us and by Xen-Tan but found some affordable yet high quality gradual tan in the form of St Tropez. Unlike most gradual tans this one can be applied in the shower, this means no slathering on a moisturiser and having to frantically wash your hands after application for fear of the orange-in-between-the-fingers. This was a concept that I eagerly anticipated and the main reason why I snatched this off the shelf in Superdrug when I noticed it was on offer for £9.99.

SmoothSkin Gold IPL | Week Six

Back in June I was fortunate enough to meet the SmoothSkin ladies at the Bloggers Ball, I had first read about the Gold IPL over at LadyWrites and was desperate to try one out. Unwanted body hair has long been the bane of my life, I've dabbled with shaving, waxing and epilating as well as hair removal cream and, experienced a few horror stories along the way (burned my face with wax when removing my moustache and left hair removal cream on for too long in places where you really don't want to leave hair removal cream on for too long). At the Bloggers Ball I was given the opportunity to enter a competition to win my very own SmoothSkin Gold IPL - and I DID! I can't tell you how thrilled I was to have won this little badboy.

The Block Heel Edit

Block heels are a trend that I readily jumped on this year. It's no lie that I love heels, I wear heels  for work (don't worry, no one makes me) I feel better in heels, I'm quite a casual with my style preferring jeans over dresses and baggy T-shirts and jumpers galore, shoving on a pair of heels can make any outfit feel more feminine and little more dressed up. This is all well and good but there is no denying that heels are a bitch - Lord knows how the likes of the Kardashians manage to parade around in stiletto style heels all day long but my little non-famous tootsies can only hack a few hours (and I have a high pain threshold when it comes to heels) Not to mention the fact that walking wears heels away; who else has had the end of the heel vanish and has been left making that obvious and annoying metal-heel sound at every step? Not only does it make walking slightly more dangerous but it also screams 'broken shoes' which, is never a good look.
