I ordered a couple of things from Cult Beauty which arrived yesterday...nothing super exciting but just some bits I saw on the website while picking up my moisturiser (Tata Harper Rebuilding Moisturiser for Combination/Oily Skin). I do love this moisturiser and even though it's very pricey, I think it's worth it as it is 100% natural and I don't buy it very often as it lasts a long time! I actually didn't even need to buy it right now as I have quite a lot of my other bottle left but I just like to have back-up! The other Tata Harper product I swear by is their eye cream but unfortunately they were sold out so I'll have to wait to repurchase!
I haven't found a shampoo & conditioner that I'm absolutely in love with yet which is why I decided to trial these two brands: the first is Davines and I picked up Volu Shampoo & NouNou conditioner. I thought the packaging looked kind of cool & different and the reviews were very good so I'm excited to see how they work! I also got the Rahua Shampoo & Conditioner which are made from organic and 100% natural ingredients. I actually used them for the first time last night and am pleased to report that my hair looks and feels silky soft and my colour looks fresher & more vibrant for some reason! (Which is odd, because I actually desperately need a visit to the hairdresser's).
Lastly I treated myself to a new eyeshadow palette...I got the Stila Soul Palette which is full of the most beautiful natural & earth tones in both shimmer and matte finish (I'm SUCH a sucker for shimmer even though I do try to balance it out with matte shadows in the crease so I don't look like a disco ball!). I had been using the Tarte Amazonian Clay Eyes and Cheek palette which I loved but I've run out of some of my favourite shades so it was time for a change! Plus who doesn't want an excuse to buy a new palette ;) I've worn this the past two days and so far I'm really liking it!
This has been my uniform for the past while of
hibernating staying home with the kids & making the most of these post Christmas snuggly days before the New Year starts and everything goes back to normal again with work, pre-school, playgroups, activities etc. Big cosy jumpers, skinny jeans and my UGG slippers which were a Christmas present from my mum and one of my most-used favourite gifts ever! They are SO comfy! My jumper is in a dusty pink from Ganni, the jeans are light grey skinnies from 7 for All Mankind and my Christmassy bedsheets were a great find from Homebase (they are the really soft flannel kind!).
I hope you are all having a happy New Year's Eve...I will leave you with this gorgeous video that the very talented Ellie made for us which shows a little look back at what 2015 brought to us. I really love this, it just shows how much has happened & changed in one year! I will be back in 2016 with lots of fun new posts & videos for you guys. Thank you for continuing to read here and for sticking with me! Your support is always appreciated :)
