Hello December - hair, hands and body


Adverts calendars, present panic, wrapping, hot chocolates, Christmas films, dark and cold nights in, the list can go on and on listing all the things I love about December and the run up to the big day. I have some beauty staples that are brought out of my stash every winter to help me through this month.

Cocoa butter: skin therapy oil - £9.99-  I love to use this in December for so many reasons. I can really suffer with dry skin and this can sort that our straight away. After the shower or bath I like to slap a nice thick layer all over my skin and jump into a onesie or some thick pjs. You feel a bit sticky for a while but when you wake up the next day, it feels like you have baby soft skin. To top it off........ it smells like mint chocolate!

Soap and Glory Hand food - £5.50 - A staple in a lot of peoples hand bag or bed side tables, this hand cream is a winning for me any time. I tend not to use this during the other months of the year as I find that it is quite thick and my hands don't really need that much attention. The smell is lovely and typical to Soap and Glory products. Not an expensive product and you get a lot for your money and lasts a long time. I tend to apply this after I've done all my skincare routine and brushed my teeth. I wash my hands and smooth in a generous amount into my hands so it can soak in over night. Bliss.

OGX Keratin oil - £4.99 - I have very dry hair naturally as well as having a lot of bleach through it so I need to take more care in the colder months. I have re-purchased this twice as I found it to be so lovely to use. With other hair oils it leaves your hands feeling so horrible (I'm a bit weird) but this one doesn't leave the strange feeling which made me very happy. I apply it on towel dried hair and a small amount after blow drying. It makes my hair feel advert quality, smooth and silky and the dry horse hair is left behind.

Do you have any winter staples that you swear by? I would to know.

Thanks for stopping by xo

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
