Sophie portrait | April Lily Rose

Hello, thanks for visiting my little blog!

I'm Sophie and this is my website dedicated to my obsession with natural + organic + skin kind beauty products. It all started when I began an internship with a small company that sells a brand of supplement. Doing research into the vitamin industry suddenly changed my perspective on nutrition. And after heading along to CAM Expo in London for market research, my views on alternative medicine changed (especially after attending a seminar by Alliance for Natural Health). My choice of beauty products quickly followed as I began to struggle with acne and searched for new ways to tackle my skin problems. I've been exploring and researching the world of all things natural ever since - including issues such as natural health and beauty products, good nutrition, and food as medicine.

What does the blog name mean?

As this blog is focused on using as many products sourced from nature as possible, I wanted my blog name to reflect this. I'm an April baby, I like wild Easter lilies, and my Nan's cottage garden roses are my favourite flower! Roses especially symbolise natural beauty to me, not just their delicate appearance but they have incredible skin-healing and aromatherapy properties. Rose essential oil and rosehip seed oil are two of my herbal favourites to use in my skincare and beauty concoctions.
