The Little Green Soap Company

Good Morning Everybody!

I am back with a little review on a couple of items I purchased a few weeks ago from a lovely little shop on Etsy. The shop name is " The Little Green Soap Company" and they hand make natural  products with a good range to choose from. They are based in the UK and everything is very affordable.

A little background to what I was looking for:-

Every winter I suffer terribly with very dry, hacked, chapped skin on my finger tips and it can really affect my mood and activities throughout the day. I have mountains of lotions and hand creams but none really ever soften or take the problem away. It usually subsides as summer approaches but come Halloween and the chill starts again, well hello chapped hands. In the past I have bought heavier creams and balms but they always left my hands way too greasy so they were never a practical option, especially when your a mum. As I'm on a bit of a natural and organic switch up at the minute I decided to try The li…

Good Morning and Happy Easter!

   I wanted to share with you all the things I've been loving this month and most of the new year.







Welcome 2018

Welcome 2018!

I have finally gotten round to this blog thing again lol. I missed it and I'm hoping to make more time for it this year. I've really just been off being a mum and other general life stuff so I don't really have a big dramatic excuse lol.

I feel that in my absence a lot have changed, especially with me. I haven't really posted anything in about 2 years and in that time I have grown more and my taste and attitude has changed so as a result I feel that my past posts and content really aren't me anymore and I have picked up quite a few more hobbies along the way, other than just beauty and nails, so I think an overhaul is due on this blog.

I intent to keep up with the beauty products that I'm finding interesting at the time but throwing in a few of my new hobbies. I'm currently learning to dress make and crotchet at the minute so we'll see how that goes lol, I  may even show you some bit along my journey :D, along with a few other bits and pie…

Where have I been you ask?

Where have I been you ask? Well I've only been off having a baby!! A baby boy to be precise! I've pretty much taken time out from absolutely everything I used to do and it's been the best time ever. I am absolutely in love with my son and being a mum. It's been one of the best things I've done with my life lol.
Before having my son I wasn't in the best head space and was still grieving strongly from previous events and my job was getting me down and stressing me out. So giving myself time off and getting away from everything that was just not working for me has really calmed me and really helped settle me into motherhood!! And I LOVE it :D


Mac Madness...

Hey Everyone!!

                        Well I'm back with a new review of the new Mac Cosmetics goodies I picked up yesterday!! I had a lovely amount of Debenham beauty card points to use up before they expired so of course I had a nosey round Mac..lol. I knew I wanted to try one of the mineralized blushes so I instantly fell in love with "New Romance". It is a soft pink with a hint of peach to it and is very light. In the swatch it is darker but on the cheeks it is just gorgeous. It has a lot of shimmer in it, not big chunks but enough that you could over load on it. This shade is perfect for us paler girls who run away from dark berry or bright purple/pink shades (or maybe that's just me). Saying that, this would still work for darker skin tones as it would work as a highlighter more than a blush. You could also use it over a different shade if you want more colour as it is a very soft, light pink.


You can clearly see I am pretty pale lol but this is a great examp…

Lush Haul Part 1!!

Hey Everyone!!

                             I'm back with a quick look at what I treated myself to from the Lush Boxing Day Sale! I love Lush Cosmetics so knowing that my favourite Rose Jam shower gel was gonna be in the sale, I just had to get one!! So of course I got a 500g size and I do not regret it lol.

Rose Jam smells like strong Turkish Delight and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!

Next up is the So White shower gel which I had bought a smaller size of before Christmas and just fell in love with the crisp apple scent this gel has. Really refreshing and pleasant to use.

Snow Fairy I believe is everyone's favourite from what I have read in other blogs. I personally enjoy the scent but it is far from my favourite. It smells like sweets, very, very sweet and candy like. I do enjoy the scent and look forward to using it in the summer but I can see myself getting sick of the scent.

Celebrate is my first body lotion from Lush Cosmetics. I generally find Lush lotions over priced which i…

#LIPHUG!! Makeup Revolution

Image
Hey Everyone!

                        Well I'm just gonna get straight to it today ;). About 3 months ago I decided to try the new Makeup Revolution #LipHug lipsticks. These lipsticks remind me of others like Revlon Lip Butters and Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks. I own several of the Revlon Lip Butters and 1 of the UD Revolution lipsticks. Honestly I like them all! So when I seen these I just had to try them as I love these types of lipstick formulas!! So I debated with myself long and hard to try and pick the best colours for me and decided on "Love Can Set You Free" and "When You Came To Me". These are both nude pink shades with "Love Can Set You Free" being the darker, more pigmented shade. Both are very wearable and definitely great everyday shades, almost your lips but better kind of shades but not quite that natural :D. The staying power on these lipsticks I found were actually really good, for a product that costs only £2.50 they last a goo…
