After a kind invite from the lovely ladies at Liz Earle I hopped along to the Flagship store in Chelsea for a Wreath making evening in aid of their new addition to the ever so popular energising range. We were greeted with Mulled wine (elder flower for the non drinkers like myself) and minced pies with a display of beautiful wreath making goodies! 

January will see an amazing launch of ‘Energising Body Lotion’, a potent yet silky body cream packed with 19 naturally active ingredients including: Caffeine, ginkgo biloba, chestnut, vitamin E, borage, grapefruit, rosemary, peppermint and many more. This luscious blend will have you picked up from those Winter blues in no time at all! The body lotion comes in a sleek long bottle that’s easy enough to carry with you, the texture of the lotion is lovely and silky and it absorbs into the skin very quickly and of course, the smell is to die for as with every other Liz Earle product!

Here are some pictures from our lovely Wreath making evening!

The lovely table full of Wreath goodness!

Majority of the props used for our wreath’s were in fact the main ingredients which you will find in Energising Body Lotion!

I’m forever getting compliments on how nice my nails are, so when I reply and say I barely do anything to them most individuals are shocked. I’m lucky to have quite long nail beds which I hear many woman long for. Having long nail beds to me makes me feel like I have two large beetles sitting on my thumbs however i’ve learnt to live with them. I don’t enjoy overly long nails so I think having long nail beds can be a pro as you can grow your nails a small amount for them to look long. So my dilemma is this awful weather, a few weeks ago I noticed a vast change to the health of my nails, lets just say they were a ‘hot mess’, dry cuticles, split cracked nail beds and even when I filed them down they were just not growing how they usually do. I spoke with Farrah from Makeup It Girl who advised me to use Nailtiques, now I have to admit, I had never heard of this brand before, Farrah kindly sent me some products to try out.

Nailtiques Formula 2 – This formula is for weak, soft, bitten or nails that are just unhealthy, it consists of a unique blend of protein and conditioners that will immediately help nails that are in need of some TLC. Ingredients include: hydrolyzed keratin and protein in combination with gelatin and calcium to help bond nail layers together building a stronger and healthier nail. I applied this daily for about 2 weeks, in fact I applied it so much that my nails were over healthy and so hard they broke :p. Apply this formula daily but keep an eye on your nails, if they seem to be back in their normal form then use formula 1 to help maintain! This formula is truly magic, I highly recommend.

Nailtiques Formula 1 – Like mentioned above, this formula is designed to help maintain healthy nails, it will continue to help bond your nail layers together. Formula 1 is recommended for people who have previously been using formula 2 and also for those who already have healthy nails but need that extra little help. I have now switched over to formula 1 and I apply it around 2-3 times a week, I can see such an amazing difference in my nails since using these formulas, my nails are indeed back to their healthy selves! Happy days 🙂

Nailtiques Oil Therapy – Another hero product from Nailtiques, enriched with fabulous Vitamins which help to get rid of those ugly brittle stubs. This formula can be used on toe and hand nails to help dry flaking nails. Since using Oil Therapy my cuticle’s are super soft and for someone who has a calcium deficiency this oil has really helped get rid of any white spots on my nails. Another great tip- If you use this over your wet polish it acts as a drying agent and also helps to set your polish. Kudos for this amazing oil!!

Nailtiques Nail Moisturiser – Enriched with collagen, jojoba and aloe this Nail moisturiser helps to restore moisture back into the nail whilst maintaining flexibility. I apply this cream generously to my nail at bed time for it to really penetrate.

Ladies.. if you are having a hard time with your nails I urge you to try out Nailtiques products, amazing formulas that really do work!! www.nailtiques.com.

Nailtiques is available to buy from the Ritz London and also on the Salonskinare and Lookfantastic websites!

Prices will be updated on the products soon

I’ll keep this short and sweet as I tend to babble on! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this face wash.  Geranium is one of my all time favorite scents in skincare products. The smell of this face wash really does awaken the senses in the morning, It vanishes any sign of dirt and grime on your face, leaving it clean, refreshed with no sign of dryness. It’s an SLS and chemical free formula that foams only a small amount leaving you skin toned moisturised and ready to face the day!

Organic Surge Daily Care Face Wash-  £4.99.

Available to buy at Boot’s store and also online at Organic Surge

I came across the Lord & Berry brand whilst browsing on ASOS (as you do). Lord and Berry is a brand that is not very well known in the U.K with only one retailer (that I know of) who sells the range. Its fast becoming one of my favorite makeup brands along side NARS of course. Lord and Berry deal solely with eyes and lips and woooaahhh are the products amazing!!

Lord & Berry Active Spa Extra Care Lip Balm SPF 15 (£10) – A lip balm that provides the highest level of moisturisation, keeping your sexy pout exactly that! Also contains an SPF15 which appeals to me in a big way. I have been using this a lipstick base, I apply this about 10 mins before putting on my lippy, it really helps to keep your lipstick looking fresh whilst delivery that high level of moisture you need in these icy cold months.

Lord & Berry Black Wardrobe High Definition Volume & Treatment Mascara (12.50) – A mascara that gives you definition, volume and treats your lashes at the same time! What more would you want? Considering Lord and Berry are a brand that concentrate on lips and eyes, I can tell you that this formula is amazing!! I will add a lash picture soon 🙂

Lord & Berry 20100 Shining Long Lasting Lipstick Crayons (£8) – I LOVE these lipstick crayons, the texture is basically like a matte lipstick with a slight tinge of shining gloss coming through. I have this in the colour NUDE! Lasts long and doesn’t dry out! I recommend for sure.

Lord & Berry Black Wardrobe Raincoat Protecting Waterproof Mascara (£8.95) – Another fabulous mascara, protects your lashes whilst keeping the colour run free! If your a fan of water proof mascara you will love this one. 🙂

Lord & Berry Black Wardrobe Silk Kajal Kohl Eye Liner (£9) – I have to say that this liner is probably one of the BEST I have used! For starters it’s the longest eye pencil I have ever seen so the value for money is amazing. The pencil is thick and the colour is so saturated that it lasts for ages. It smoothly applies and feels like silk!

Lord & Berry Matte Velvet Lipstick (From £8) – I’m totally in love with these lip shades! The Red is called ‘China Red Vogue’ and the dark cherry colour is ‘Black Red Vogue’. im not much of a lipstick wearer but recently I have decided to start wearing more daring shades, these two shades are definitely VERY daring for me who normally wears a nude or very light pink lip colour. These lipsticks are amazing, you guys should check out the colours for sure!

Lord and Berry products are available from ASOS. You can also check out the latest from Lord and Berry on their site.

I have just gotten over a terrible bout of Flu and the most awful chest infection one could ask for!! Here are some of my all time Savior products that got me through the torment!!

Les Fluers De Bach Anti-Stress Treating Fragrance Organic – 50ml (£19.50)- This amazing blend of Lavender, sage, bergamont and Eucalyptus essential oils really do put the mind at ease! Even though I was overly bunged up, I would spray this every night all over my bed, pillow, curtains and anything else I could think of at the time! I hate the feeling of being ill and always like having a fresh smelling room and clean fresh sheets!  This anti-stress treatment worked perfectly! Also a great product to help you sleep.

Les Fluer De Bach Anti-Stress Shower Gel – Organic – 200ml (£19)-  This shower gel has an amazing blend of natural mind calming ingredients! I found using this whilst having the Flu very helpful. It really does help to unblock your sinuses and helps out with all the awful aches and pains you have.  I highly recommend! This product is also great for individuals that play sports it really does help to relax the muscles.

Les Fluer De Bach Anti-Stress Body Lotion – Organic – 200ml (£29) – After a nice hot shower I lathered myself in this yummy Body lotion. Infused with organic Shea Butter and Sesame Seed Oil, enriched with Aloe Vera and organic Bach flowers to calm, restore and ease the mind. It left my skin velvety smooth and again helps with all the aches and pains that come with an awful bout of Flu!!

Davina Peace Body Oil (£45) – Since attending the launch of the Davina Peace range im am now a complete convert! The body oil is my nightly ritual and a little really does go a long way. This nourishing body oil is great for the winter months when your skin decides it wants to be naughty because of the climate change. Another reason why I love this body oil is for its healing properties, since using this on my legs every night it has completely healed any shaving bumps and ingrowing hairs that I have. I was also told by Farrah from Makeup It Girl that its great for healing minor burns, My mum had a nasty oil burn the other day and I have given her some of this fabulous oil to use and its healing the burn pretty quickly.

Products above can be found at www.davinapeace.com and Les Fluer De Bach
