Elemis Superfood Facial Oil 

Yes, this should of gone up yesterday but I was enjoying the sunshine ... so here we are. The first and best step in my morning skincare routine is the Elemis Superfood Facial Oil, and with the current heat my skin is drinking this up! 


Using 1-2 drops of the superfood oil I drop these into the palm of my hand, warm it up between my hands and press it into and all over my skin yes face and neck, never neglect your neck. This oil is so nourishing on the skin that it starts to perk your skin up within a few days and really enhances your glow factor, plus it starts to hydrate and nourish from day one. The natural blend of highly concentrated superfoods deeply nourishes with Anti-oxidant and omega-rich Broccoli, Flax Seed and Daikon Radish feed the skin, helping to plump and smooth.



It's super lightweight, non-greasy and easily absorbed, this oil will leave your skin balanced and refreshed every day. It's also great for starting to heal old spots, I've found that it's helped to heal any spots I've had once they've had there moment. It helps to repair the skin's natural balance and keeps it looking young and refreshed!

Elemis Foaming Facial Wash

Elemis Foaming Facial Wash

Say hello to my new favourite refreshing facial wash, the Elemis Foaming Facial Wash is the must have in my evening skincare routine and makes me feel just oh so lovely! A deeply purifying foaming cleanser that gently sweeps away pollutants and impurities whilst respecting the skin’s natural oils.


This cream cleanser carefully lifts away the debris of the day, including make-up, in a light but luscious lather, helping to reduce any excess oil that may have built up, leaving the skin feeling purified and deeply cleansed, refreshed and balanced without stripping the skin of it's natural balance. The scent is the most unreal I've ever experienced, it's bright / aromatic / balanced but so so simply happy, it contains  a blend of lemon, orange, ylang ylang and peitigrain and these all contribute to making the cleansing ritual a pleasure. 
Sympathetic to even the most sensitive skin, this gentle wash combines extracts such as Fig, and Apple amino acid, which all help to produce the foamy texture and protects the skin’s moisture barrier. Pracaxi oil, extracted from a tree native to the wet, tropical terrain of the Amazon, works to soften skin, but also helps maintain its delicate balance, respecting the skin’s natural oil levels.

How To Get Sh*t Done | Adulting 101

How To Get Sh*t Done | Adulting 101

You've just moved into your first place and the realisation of being an adult sets in ... sh*t it's time to get serious. You have a few weeks of keeping on top of things but then every week you have to have one day or evening where you just blast through all the things you've been putting off! So today we're going to run through all the ways you can make the life admin day so much easier. 


Write a to do list as you go, on your phone or on a piece of paper just write everything down that you need to sort and you won't forget anything!

Set your jobs in order of priority, always make sure you get your most important tasks done first. 

Separate your work and personal tasks, so if you need to buy a bag for work and also buy your nephews birthday present make sure you keep them on separate lists... the birthday present is probably more important. 


Make sure you block out time to get stuff done, whether that be a Sunday or one evening in the week. For me, Fridays are great evenings. I get the shopping done and come back clean up and get all my life admin bits done. 

Remove physical distractions .... yes, put your phone on airplane mode and ignore it!! 

Try and physically manage your tasks, so all your paperwork bits put into one pile so you know you won't miss any!


Be realistic, if you know your to do list is too long then split it up and chill. Take your time, no one said there was a time limit. 

Start to organise yourself when your completing your to do list, a tidy mind will in turn equal a tidy life and trust me it makes EVERYTHING a lot easier. 


How do you get sh*t done?

Elemis Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream

Elemis Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream

Birthdays are all about getting that must have skincare and makeup that you don't want to fork out for yourself .... and my 23rd birthday brought me all the very best the skincare game has to offer! Todays little feature is on the Elemis Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream although I haven't been trailing this product for long it's already creating an impression. 


This is a super thick, luxurious feeling night cream that makes you feel super posh using it! I am a massive fan of the Elemis brand and always have been because they create products that work and give your skin everything it needs. The Elemis night cream is an oxygenating night cream that helps your skin's natural regeneration process, it essentially just gives your skin a helping hand. The blend of active ingredients like Laminaria Mediterranean algae and Padina Pavonica helps to improve skin suppleness, firmness and elasticity. The science behind the oxygenating is supported by anti-oxidant rich Sesame and Avacado oils delivering free-radical protection, this allows you to wake up with actively firmer looking skin with a radiant complexion. 



This night cream is suitable for all skin types *hail the Elemis creators* and will also help to delay the signs of premature ageing! The consistency of this cream is very thick and you would think it would be very heavy on your skin, but it just sinks into your skin and is really easily absorbed  Especially if you have dehydrated skin your skin will just drink this up like there's no tomorrow! They say you need to start using anti-ageing products or more targeted skin care at the age of 25 but there's no harm in beating the bus and getting in a tiny bit earlier. 



Have you tried the Elemis brand yet?
