Atijah Organics Cocoa Butter Bars

As well as giving me the excellent Nubian Twist Body Butter to review, Atijah Organics also gave me two lovely cocoa butter bars, one tea tree and one lemongrass flavour. I soon found the tea tree cocoa butter bar had become a staple in my handbag, as it was small and compact, and the mesh bag it was presented in did a really good job …

Mimi Moment

This is Mimi. She smiles. I know why she smiles; I don’t know any dog that has it better. She eats mostly organic meat. To keep as many nutrients in the meat as possible we feed it to her raw. However, over time, and with the treats bestowed upon her (think kippers, smoked salmon, pate, livers, Bruh Estate stuffed chicken legs and Aberdeen Angus seasoned …

The Butcher, The Baker, The Candlestick Maker!

I have been a big fan of Jonathan Ward’s candles for quite some time now. I love the Black collection, inspired by South American travels. True, I have a yearning to go back to South America and travel extensively, but I also love the dark, earthy fragrances of these candles. Walk in Machu Picchu and Kiss in Rio are my two favourites. I’ve recently been …

Balance Me Seven Day Hand & Body Wash With Petitgrain & Green Myrtle

The Balance Me team gave me this wash to try and I must say I am now quite partial to it. The smell is very green, which is something I don’t usually go for, but it really is quite charming. Green myrtle, from whence this green smell comes, is antibacterial, and has been beautifully combined with the citrus aromas of sweet neroli, orange and petitgrain. …

My Organic Indulgence

Every month or so, I try and make it down to Spa Fabulous in Surbiton, another brand I represent. The salon is beautifully presented, and Neena Trehan, the owner and founder, is always an absolute pleasure to be or work with. It’s no wonder she counts Lisa Snowdon among her best clients and is currently working on a very exciting project with her (watch this …

My Evening Beauty Bask

Some evenings, I like to unwind with a nice hot bath. I used to love baths, then went through a stage of thinking they were a good idea but as soon as I got in the bath I was either too hot or bored and wanted to get out. I have now come full circle and enjoy a good long soak in the tub. Whilst …

REN Active 7 Radiant Eye Maintenance Gel

When it comes to wrinkles, I’m fairly lucky in that I don’t have any to really talk about. Dark circles/discolouration around the eyes however, was a different story. I always thought this was partly down to one New Years Day on a beach in Peru, having covered all of me but my eyes with P20 (this was way before my organic kick) I fell asleep …

Atijah Organics – Nubian Twist

Whilst at The Vitality Show with Evolve Beauty, I met two lovely sisters from Nottingham. They were very excited about my blog, and so I promised them my first blog post. I’ve fallen for their Nubian Twist Body Butter, which I have utilised in several different ways. First I tried it out on my body. I love the way the balance of fragrances in each …

My Morning Beauty Fix

I truly love Evolve Beauty products. I handle their PR and marketing and it is so important to believe in a brand you represent.  As my blog progresses, I will be recommending products to friends to get their feedback on them, however I wanted to share with you my top picks and what makes them so great. Fear not, my blog is not going to …

Movers & Shapers : Session 8

Being my first session in a week and a half I was wondering how I’d fare today.  The session was with Idi, and I still had memories of my exhaustion after the 1 to 1 so upon seeing her I felt a little nervous! She commented that she hadn’t seen me for a long time so I told her I’d had a week and a …
