At the end of last month I was lucky enough to be invited to the Biome Eco Store at Hawthorne to check out their DIY Naked Beauty initiative. A bit of background about Biome – they’re an eco and environmentally conscious brand who seek to do no harm to animals or people through any of their business practices. And they follow through on their ethical stance recently removing all products with palm oil from all stores and online in a bid to protect the orangutans meaning they can no longer sell any liquid foundations or mascaras as well as dozens of other product lines. The brand also seeks to reduce, reuse and recycle selling products with minimal plastic packaging and naked, glass or paper packaging where possible. Which leads us to the advent of the DIY skincare range.
Mother’s Day is one of the hardest gift giving days to buy for, what do you get the person who gave you life? Lush has some ideas this year and they’re all absolutely lovely and I was sent the range to try. I’ve been around for a few Lush collections in my time (just scroll through the blog and see how many) and this one has been, in my opinion, the best overall. There isn’t one product here I didn’t love the smell of and all the bath bombs, bars and solid scrubs are gorgeously moulded and coloured.
Skincare favourite Weleda has released a new range of tinted lip balms and sent me a couple to try! They are lovely and nourishing, perfect coming into the cooler months.
Ok it’s March and I’m only just getting around to doing a Favourites post – we’ll count this as my first quarter favourites and then maybe go back to monthly from here on out. I haven’t really been buying that many new makeup things lately but out of what new things I have bought most of them have quickly become part of my everyday routine.
Long time no post. I really have no excuses I’ve been lazy and busy and just generally not in the mood for blogging.
My life has kind of changed this past month and I’m getting to grips with that but it’s taking a minute. I’ve finally realised I don’t have the safety net of uni to keep me occupied and away from life responsibilities. I have to actually commit to setting long term goals and figuring out the direction I want to go in and finding out how to get there and that’s very daunting to me.
