If we’re friends on social media you may know that this comes to you in place of a Prague travel post. Unfortunately, a series of unfortunate events en route to the airport led to us missing our flight. After some angry words and hours on the phone, we sat in the car determined not to waste our week. There were very few flights available and the limited last-minute options decided on the Eurostar to Paris for us.
The Natural Wellness Box is a wellness and beauty service offering a variety of subscription options. A new, themed, collection is released bi-monthly. The boxes include 5-7 full size products: Luxury skincare, supplements and healthy snack products. Everything featured is Vegan and CF which is a lovely bonus for me but particularly amazing news for those who are vegan.
I was in two minds about whether to write this post for one simple reason: I’m in no way techie. Ultimately though, that’s exactly why I’ve decided that I should. The majority of bloggers that I know are in the same boat, we write about lots of interests but coding isn’t one of them. Beauty gurus? I follow plenty, but IT gurus? Only a couple.
The weather in the UK recently has done a great job of confirming that it is, in fact, spring. The sun has been out quite consistently and whilst some days are colder than others, I’ve definitely been reaching for fewer layers.

Recently, ELVI kindly allowed me to choose two items from their spring collection and these are my picks:
SKN-RG’s ethos is one which I can fully get behind: visible proven results via clean beauty. Their Evolution Alpha serum launches on Monday 1st April, so I’m here to give you a weeks notice in case you wanted to be first in line!
After endless demands from skincare lovers, Floracil has ended a three-year hiatus to grace our lashes once again. From this month it’s available nationwide. I was lucky enough to be one of the first to bag one and it’s a product I’d definitely recommend.
Nude lipsticks are key players in any makeup collection. They can perfectly complete any look, from understated and minimal to full on Kardashian. I heavily rely on nude lipsticks and they’re definitely the tone I tend to wear the most. Despite having a rather large collection, the following five are the select few which I reach for over and over again. All of the following score strongly when considering formula, shade and longevity (I’m also a sucker for cute packaging).
Last month I had the pleasure of spending a day in St Ives with Hall & Co Event Design in honour of their Easter Feast launch. The experience was a very subtle lesson in entertaining. It channelled my inner Martha Stewart and since I’ve been itching to pass on some tips to make you the host with the most.
At the end of last year, I participated in ‘No Plastic November’. I’m a little late in sharing how I got on but really wanted to continue to implement changes and learn a little more beforehand. I soon learned that a no plastic month was near impossible, considering how little preparation I had done. Despite the set-back and the feeling that I’d already failed throughout Novembers first supermarket trip, I was determined to cut down as much as possible. Since November, I’ve continued to make changes and have considerably reduced my plastic waste. Here’s how you can reduce yours too (in order of difficulty, beginning with the easiest).
