The Spa at Armathwaite Hall bath tea

Bath Tea for Silky Soft Skin

Today’s post is based on something I like to do sometimes after a stressful day, and that is making a fancy bath. When plain hot water is not good enough on these occasions, I like to add a few more lovely ingredients to transform the sad old bath into a luxurious spa. Bath Tea for Silky Soft Skin As a tea-drinker, the concept of a bath tea sounds rather brilliant. Making myself a human biscuit in a large bath-shaped teacup. I’ve never tried a bath tea before, so I’m excited to embark on a new bathing experience. The bath tea [...]

Botanicals Lemongrass Mandarin Body Lotion Review

With the glorious hot weather these last few weeks, cooling lightweight body care products are what you need for summer. My trusted coconut oil is sitting on the reserve bench, whilst refreshing and quick-absorbing lotions are my current go-to in the morning. Natural and 91% organic, the Lemongrass Mandarin Body Lotion*, kindly sent to me from Botanicals, has been my in my daily routine for the past couple of months. Looking to try green beauty body care from a British brand? Read on for my Botanicals Lemongrass Mandarin Body Lotion review.

Green People Quinoa Body Care Range

Green People truly excel with reliable, natural and kind-to-skin beauty products. I've been a regular customer of theirs for a while now, so when I was sent the new Green People Quinoa body care range I knew I'd probably love it! Last June I reviewed the Green People quinoa and artichoke hair care range, which gave me super soft locks and are still firm favourites of mine. Now they've formulated a shower gel and deodorant also featuring the superfood quinoa. After trialling for a month (my shower gel is now empty!), here's my review... Green People Quinoa and Calendula Shower Gel Scent Ginger, [...]
TOTM Organic Pads and Tampons

TOTM Organic Pads and Tampons Review

One of the main early changes I made when transitioning to a green lifestyle was to start using organic cotton pads and tampons. As a sufferer of chronic period pain for three years, it has been a key element to help reduce monthly pain, and maintain healthy feminine care without the use of harmful synthetics. There are a small number of organic brands available in the UK to cater for the eco girl. This is my TOTM organic pads and tampons review. TOTM Organic Pads and Tampons Review Organic vs Synthetic TOTM organic pads and tampons* are made of non-GM cotton, meaning [...]
Sukin Body Creme

Feeling Tropical: Sukin Moisture Rich Body Crème Review

For most days, I like to use good old coconut oil to moisturise in the morning after a bath. There are times when coconut oil is a royal pain in the arse. For example when your brain turns to potato and you forget that coconut oil is an oil. And that getting dressed with oil on your hands will saturate your clothes with oil. Which will then take 7 washes to come out. Or the time you put too much on your under arms and you had oil patches on your new Topshop tee in said area for a fortnight. [...]

St Valentine’s Pamper Night

I've seen a lot of people saying it this St Valentine's weekend but it's true - every day should be love yourself day! As it is all lovey dovey today I thought I'd pick out some of my favourite indulging beauty products for an extra special St Valentine's pamper night. This might be something you'd like to do before getting ready for a date, or getting ready for a night with Netflix. This year I'm afraid it's just me watching a very dashing Tom Hardy and these treats I bundled up for this post... Balm Balm Frankincense Deep Cleansing Balm [...]

January Mini Survival Kit

Freezing cold, wind, rain, snow, winter blues, anxiety and difficulties with low confidence (thanks to a crappy break-up) have started to take their toll on me this month. Why is it when you're going through stress the natural reaction is to not look after yourself? Since when does self-destruct help any matter? After neglecting my body proper nutrition, and surviving instead on Amazon Prime movies, tea, rage and excessive worrying, I realised taking good care of myself needed to be part of my healing process. I have found a few things that have helped me survive what has so far been [...]
Green beauty swap box 2015

Christmas #GreenBeautySwap 2015

This Christmas I was lucky enough to be part of the #GreenBeautySwap! My lovely swap partner and organiser of the gift-giving was Ria from the blog NaturiaBeauty.

Caudalie Tinted Legs Bronzing Oil

Caudalie Divine Legs Tinted Body Lotion

It's Sunday afternoon and what a beautiful day! As I'm writing this it's ridiculously hot here in Cumbria (one of those days when you walk outside and you get blasted in the face with the rare and endangered warm breeze!). Following a night of constant rain, thunder and lightning - we are usually very excitable with storms and will stare out of the window with all the lights off for a good hour and exclaim at each flash in the sky like weirdos - it's been lovely to see that today turned out to be one of the best warm days [...]
Lani Tropical Hair & Body Treatments

Beach Vibes: Lani Tropical Hair and Body

These long summer days have been lovely especially up here in the Lakes, which has been a nice change from previous wash-out summers! And with the higher temperatures, hours spent outside in the sun and recent re-ignited love affair with my hair curling wand (bad I know but I wanted boys to think I was a mermaid), my hair has taken a bit of a beating. While I wouldn't say it's terribly sun damaged, I have noticed my hair has become quite dry with a lot of split ends. I don't use heat styling tools very frequently (maybe once or [...]
