Like I have said 1 million times, I am not a makeup person. I feel like I am quite a basic makeup user, I find products I love and I stick to them. I find a look I love and stick to it. Simple as that. I am not one who has lots of time nor patience for sitting around for hours painting my face into a masterpiece. I am pretty much the most basic biatch out there when it comes to my makeup! However so many of you message me and comment asking me what makeup I use and to do a routine! Instead of a video I thought I would put together this blog post!

 

I have used the same makeup brand and products for around 2 years now. THIS IS NOT A SPONSORED POST. I just love them. Honestly. A friend of a friend who is now a friend (LOL wrap your head around that) introduced me to the brand and products a while back and I can honestly say I will never change my makeup brand. The makeup is made from high quality swiss ingredients, it is vegan friendly and is good to the skin. I have always had issues with my skin whether it be spots or dryness, something has always got to be an issue on my face! I have found that good high quality products, a clean diet, lots of water and sleep have improved my skin to where it is now. (I thought by the time I reached 23 I would have the face of an angel but no still struggling like a 16 year old!). I don’t think you ever escape your skin issues but you sure can improve them.

Like I said I found this brand around 2 years ago and WILL NEVER GO BACK. Like most people I looked for trending makeup that cool people were using, or cheap makeup that wouldn’t break the bank. Truth is, you get what you pay for. Now this brand is not expensive by any means but it is not the cheap nasty stuff you find in local drug stores either, probably because it is not filled with cheap nasty ingredients!

Arbonne transforms lives through pure, botanically based ingredients in scientifically tested products; a pure, healthy lifestyle; and the pure joy of helping others.

 

WHAT I AM WEARING:

 

SHOP: Arbonne Primer, Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation shade buff, Arbonne Pressed Powder in shade light, Arbonne Glow on Bronzer, Arbonne Smoothed over Lipstick in Currant.

 


As stated this is not a sponsored post but I do have an affiliate link and I will tell you why. Like I said my friend actually introduced these products to me. She was an Arbonne consultant. What this means is she actually built her own online business with these products and also receives a cracking discount at the same time, save money and make money all in one. I joined her because saving money is my favourite hobby besides sleeping and eating! You can shop these products through my link but if you find you like them you can reach out to me and find out how to get yourself the discount too so every month your shop your newly found products, you can save money at the same time. Winner winner tofu dinner!

Hey guys! I am writing up a blog post for you guys regarding Marco and I ‘s latest holiday adventure to Tenerife. I will show you our favourite vegan restaurant, where my clothes were from and where we stayed so keep reading !

We stayed at Hotel Gala in Las Americas of Tenerife. We stayed half board so had breakfast and dinner buffets included. The food was decent enough but just not what we are used to eating (i.e. no beans, tofu etc! ). The breakfast buffet was standard fruit, oats and toast which was fine to start off the day but usually meant a big lunch! We sourced an amazing restaurant called Buena Vida 100% Vegan and went there 3 times it was that good! For dinner the buffet options for vegans consisted of salads, pasta, potatoes, sometimes a veggie paella rice dish which was awesome and bread! Like I said, decent enough :)!

For those asking about my bikinis on instagram I shopped online at both Misguided and pretty little thing. Bottoms here and top here !

 

As for night time outfits my favourite had to be the dress by Miss Holly the label which is now unavailable.

 

My next favourite was this flare sleeve top by River Island that you can shop here. Trousers were also River Island from last year.

 

WINTER IS COMING. And for me that means dry skin. This may be the case for many of you but i can tell you what helps save our faces from flaking off. Exfoliation. Yes exfoliating off the dead and dry skin helps keep your skin soft and moisturised during the cold winter months. My favourite one right now is by Noir Body. Noir Body has a charcoal body scrub that is all natural, cruelty free and vegan. Now you know i love anything that has those magical 3 ingredients! So I gave it a go, loved it and now sharing it with you today! This will be sure to help keep your skin in check when the weather is not.

Hey guys and happy saturday night! Yes it is a saturday night and i am currently bathed, tanned and cosy in bed writing this blog post at 10:30pm … wild one right?! Haha there is nowhere else i would rather be to be honest! I was planning this evenings mini pamper session for one and though i might as well share it with you all so you can see my favourite products.

Whilst running the bath i poured in some Twaburds rose bath salts and some original source body wash to make bubbles

Ful size laniSo they have done it again. Lani have produced a second product and dare i say it may even be better than the first! Previously i had introduced you to Lani tropical hair treatment; a hand sized blue bottle filled with the most glorious mixture of oils to nourish your hair. Well let me introduce you to Lani tropical body treatment; a hand sized pink bottle filled with the most glorious mixture of oils to nourish your body. Now i know what you might be thinking … oil all over your skin, ew how greasy! Let me put your mind at ease! Lani is magnificent, it is almost like a dry oil which soaks right into the skin immediately, smells like you have just had a very expensive essential oil massage and nourishes you from the outside in! Once a week i indulge in Lani after a delightful bubble bath and exfoliation to leave my skin irresistibly smooth to the touch and smelling like fresh flowers. Head over to my youtube channel to hear my talk more about Lani HERE or check out the website HERE for yourself !

Beauty starts from within, that is why i eat a (mainly wholefood) plant based diet to nourish my body from the inside out. I also only use 100% natural, good quality, vegan friendly, cruelty free products on my body as around 75-100% of what we put on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream … scary right?! I wanted to share with you some of my everyday beauty essentials!

1. LANI:  I have ranted and raved about Lani since the day i started using it! Lani is a mixture of the most beautiful oils and the range of products include skincare, body care and hair care so i can nourish my whole body with just one company! I love you Lani, you tropical ray of sunshine

2. TRULY ORGANIC: Truly Organic skincare range includes this glorious body wash made of fruits and veggies from nature. Just drizzle some on a loofah and get scrubbing! It smells DIVINE.

3. SPIN FOR PERFECT SKIN: I have always had trouble getting all of my makeup off my face at night, having little bits left here and there and then resulting in breakouts! I also suffer from pretty dry skin, especially on my face! Spin for perfect skin is a rotating face brush that cleanses and exfoliates the face removing excess dirt, oils and dead skin! Combined with Lani skin oil, my face has never felt so good!

4. BOTANICAL TEETH WHITENING: I have wanted to whiten my teeth for a while now but did not want to do it with nasty chemicals that would damage my teeth in the long run, behold the botanical system! 30-40 minutes a day and hello whiter smile!

Time to get beautiful naturally

Hello Lani! This is a lifesaver, a 100% natural and tropical hair treatment that has drastically helped my damaged hair! When i regrettably dyed my hair 6 months ago i noticed it was very dry and well…damaged! Before i had dyed my hair i had long natural brown hair that was soft and shiny, so i needed something that would get my hair back to this! Lani is a combination of natural oils that are full of fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and will nourish, revitalise and hydrate your hair from root to tip. I have tried coconut oil on its own to help my hair but it was no where near as good as Lani. Of course Lani is 100% vegan, cruelty free and not tested on animals so that is another big bonus!

Ful size lani

Not only does Lani help with damaged hair, but it also helps to retain moisture, add shine to your hair, tame frizz and protect against future damage and split ends! This little bottle available HERE comes in at £10.99 but is well worth the price. You literally need a droplet or two or the oil blend to smooth through your hair coating it from root to tip. You can leave it in for 30 minutes or do as i do and leave it in over night for the best results! The simply wash it out the next day! I use Lani once a week in my hair so i can imagine this little bottle will last me a good few months, then i will definitely be getting some more!

You know when you get a new makeup product and you love it so much you sit and apply it 13762910475700 times a day just to look at yourself in the mirror with it on? Yeah that has happened to me. I came across a new luxury vegan lipstick brand on instagram called “Axiology Beauty” and am now the proud owner of two new gorgeous lippies.

I am a firm believer of living a natural lifestyle and for me that ranges from what i put in my body via eating and what i put on my body via skincare and cosmetics. Axiology beauty products DO NOT contain any chemicals or synthetics but rather contain natural and organic derived ingredients to produce earth-based tones for truly kissable lips. Not only that but the cardboard packaging for each lipstick is made from recycled products. Oh and one more thing, they also donate a percentage of profits to organisations that heal the planet and save wild animals. This is the kind of company i like to support. Not Mac or Clinique or any other careless brands on the high street.
