So this week, I’ve tried, tasted, smelt and heard new things, which I thought I’d share with you all :
Touch – Flora No 1 Fine Radiance Oil by Mitchell and Peach
My night-time skincare staple has to be a good face oil. I have combination oily skin and the best way to keep the shine under control is to combat it with oil. I’ve always opted for an oil as opposed to a night cream as well, it just feels nicer on my skin, when I wake up I don’t feel so greasy and well they smell amazing.
I’ve tried a few oils now and still only have 2 stand out products (which I’ll pop up on a new post very soon) but I’m pleased to say I’ve found a 3rd and it’s a must have lovelies.
Mitchell & Peach Fine Radiance Oil is a wonderful little bottle of magic. A super lightweight oil which absorbs into your skin almost immediately, leaving you with soft supple skin when you wake up! Delicately scented which leaves you calm and relaxed ready for a perfect nights sleep.
I received a sample in my You Beauty box some months back, but never got round to using it until now and it was worth the wait. The Mitchell’s have been farming land for 5 generations, today keeping with their roots they have created a wonderful brand of gorgeous body and bath products.
Taste – Ham, Egg and Cheese Pastries
I decided it was time to ditch the mundane breakfast and try a few new things out in the kitchen – Enter Joe Wicks AKA The Body Coach, if you haven’t heard of him and his #Leanin15 and #guilty catchphrases then where have you been?
As you know I loves me a bit of Instagram and Joe has pretty much built a cult following through the use of insta, so I decided to give one of his quickie breakfasts a whirl.
So here’s The Body Coach….
Et voila here’s my first attempt…
I served mine up on a bed of spinach and WOW, this was so delicious. I was concerned with the use of feta and parmesan but once cooked, the taste was so subtle. I went with Serrano ham but you could go with whatever you like really. So that was me getting my cook on! Have you tried any of Joe’s recipes before ? I know the Avocado and eggs has proven to be a popular favourite.
Smell – Floral Bloom by Next
Whilst out on my many visits to Next to check out new seasonal arrivals I was kindly given a sample of Floral Bloom a light scent perfect for sunny spring days. As you know I’m a sucker for a good scent and high street brands are (excuse the pun) not to be sniffed at! Next is a perfect example of how to get it right without smelling like a teenager from the 90’s.
So Floral Bloom is described as Fresh & Floral, which I can agree I find the Waterlily and Narcissus definitely come through the strongest on my whilst the neroli and papaya flower give it the light delicate fragrance. If you’re passing Next anytime soon, I highly recommend checking out their fragrance section.
Sight – Tarte Cosmetics
It’s not like I don’t have enough palettes in my life but I’m seriously obsessing over Tarte Cosmetics, Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette. The shadows are so rich and pigmented every time I go to the site of browse their insta page I’m immediately drawn in, especially with shades like “Fashionista” and “Bombshell”
Sound – Anne-Marie – Do It Right
No words…just watch and listen xoxo
Well that’s your lot for today! What did you think? Anything new you’ve tried this week? Let me know I’d love to hear any recommendations.
Until next time lovelies.
