    NAKIN Natural Anti-Ageing Skincare is a HIT!

    I am super excited to share this up and coming skincare range. I recently came across this brand and after test driving this, I am fully hooked. Its Nakin natural anti-ageing skincare. My recommendations: I decided to pick the face serum as opposed to the oils, as I have several oils in my collection. This is a much welcomed change. The formula includes hibiscus & hyaluronic acid that condition, smooth fine lines and improves elasticity, restoring the appearance of skin. This serum is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin. Costs £25 but use my discount code of NIC25 for 25% discount off this and the whole range. This is my favourite moisturiser to…

    Be kind to your face & SPF it!

    I once that applying SPF to your face was just for those sunny days, how wrong was I and even though i’m approaching the forties, its never to late to start. So be kind to your face & SPF it! I’m currently using the Sarah Chapman Insurance Skin SPF 30 but I was looking for something a little stronger. Thanks to the super talented Eilidh @addicted_to_face I picked up this SPF 50 from Heliocare from Amazon. The sun has definitely been showing its happy face and I’m hoping for more of this. I already have some pigmentation on my face and I want to grow old gracefully, so anything I…

    Yoga has improved my life and my struggle with anxiety!

    A few years ago I shared a personal part of my life, my struggle with anxiety. Its been a difficult journey and one that I continue to work on each day. Last year I had another bad episode, where I was once again broken, mentally and physically. I felt venerable, scared, isolated and lost. I am lucky enough to have a fantastic support function around me. However, when faced in these difficult times, for me it feels like no one can help. During this difficult period, I wanted to seek ways in which my recovery would became more permanent, as I knew this would lead to my emotions feeling more…

    100 needles for younger looking skin? Read my thoughts on when I had the Facial Acupuncture treatment.

    I find myself in the last year of my 30’s with the big 4-0 only 10 months away. I had been considering whether or not having botox could be an option in the next few years. However the idea of going through with it scares the life out of me. So when Emily from Embody Nantwich (CTC Healthcare) contacted me about their Anti-Ageing Facial treatment through acupuncture, this immediately got my attention. What is it and what are the benefits? Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese treatment. Its more commonly known for backaches, migraines and in in some cases helps with fertility problems. The anti-ageing facial involves inserting fine needles through…

    My Holiday Outfit Shopping Treats

    With less than a week to go till week set off for our family holiday, I decided to take myself off to Cheshire Oakes for some holiday outfit shopping treats. I went a few weeks ago and took Grace and my friend but it was not meant to be. Grace was on form and pushing all limits from running out of shops like a speed of lightening along with throwing herself on the floor having numerous tantrums. I needed (scrap that I wanted) some new pieces to complete my holiday attire and the list consisted 1 x pair of shoes, 2 x swimsuits & a top or two BUT like…

    My Anxiety Struggles

    As we come to the end of another week of raising awareness for Mental Health, it shouldn’t stop there and we should continue to talk about it.  It’s taken me years to pluck up the courage to write this post but I’m now happy to share my experiences and how I cope with what was once described as my demons. Here’s my story… I’ve struggling with anxiety and panic attacks for 10 years plus. I am now in a place where I’m better at controlling them. I recognise the signs & triggers which then allow me to start putting the relevant steps into place. For as long as I can…

    Wild Flowers & Weeds, the new scents from Jo Malone

    Jo Malone has released a limited new collection of scents and this time it’s inspired by the unruly weeds and wildly-wonderful plants and flowers that line the banks of a winding river (says the lady herself). I sampled these little gems in their Chester store before they went live online and instantly fell in love which let’s face it isn’t that hard, wish I could drape myself in all things Jo Malone, head to toe! Here’s a run down of the ones I fell for… Willow & Amber – The expressive weeping willow, gently draping across the fresh morning water. Captured in the woody pairing of cashmere wood and smoky…

    Omorovicza Elemental Emulsion Moisturiser |Full Review

    Before February this year I had never even heard of Omorovicza.  Thanks to MINTD box (the Spring Clean edition), I was able to try the Omorovicza Elemental Emulsion.  My skin type is combi to oily and I am prone to breakouts each month but after trying various lotions and potions over the years, I’ve now found the best type of moisturiser for me is a light, oil-free lotion that both hydrates and helps control shine and this little treasure does exactly that.  Thanks to its thin, milky texture, not only do I need very little to apply but within seconds its soaked in and appears grease and silicone-free whilst leaving my…
