11th May 2017 - Beauty, Style

A few months back I put together a post all about some of the things that had been sent to my mailbox and you guys seemed to love it! Since I received such a positive reaction to that post I decided to put something similar together to show you guys some of the things that I’ve received/bought over the last few weeks. I’ve acquired some beauty and fashion pieces that I thought you guys might be interested in so I thought I’d snap some pics and tell you a little bit more about the things that are ‘New In’ for me this month.

This month I’m super excited to try out the range of ‘Color Full’ haircare products by Rahua. If you haven’t heard of Rahua before then you NEED to go and check out their products, Rahua shampoos and conditioners are actually some of my favourite products. What I love the most about Rahua is that their products are completely vegan and organic as well as being paraben, sulfate and cruelty free, not only that but every time I use one of their products my hair feels so healthy and full of life. Read my full post here.

The Color Full Hair Mask is something that I’m itching to try out on one of my spa nights. Ever since I started dying my hair blonde I’ve noticed that it tends to get quite dry and can look a little dull, so I’m always on the look out for a good treatment to make my hair feel nourished and restore it back to tip top condition. This Rahua Color Full Hair Mask has been specifically formulated for colour-treated tresses, so I just know that this stuff is going to work wonders on my hair and give it the boost of hydration that it needs. There are so many wonderful, natural ingredients within this mask including Amazonian Lilac Clay which helps to reduce brassiness (great for blondies like me), Cranberry Seed Oil which deeply hydrates and adds shine, as well as Hibiscus Extract which works to maximise the strength and volume of your hair.

Alongside the mask, I’m also excited to give the Color Full Shampoo and Conditioner a whirl. Much like the mask, the Color Full shampoo and conditioner have been specifically formulated for colour-treated hair, and these babies are a great way for me to give my tresses a boost of strength and vitality every time I jump in the shower. The formulas contain a complex mix of Rainforest grown oils and enriching mineral pigments which help to preserve all shades of colour-treated hair (not just for the blondies!) They also contain Flaxseed Oil which is packed with Omega 3 and Vitamin E (both of which encourage hair growth and boost strength) along with Safflower Seed Oil which provides intensive moisture and colour retention. If you suffer with dry or dull hair then this range might be one to try. Give ’em a go and let me know what you thought!

Something that you might not know about me is that I just LOVE to try out all different kinds of deodorants (head over to my Japanese skincare haul to see what I’m talking about!) and the Schmidts ‘Rose & Vanilla’ deodorant pot has been a favourite of mine for quite some time. Schmidt’s deodorants are completely natural AND they work. I know a lot of people that have their doubts about whether natural deodorants will actually do the job, but trust me when I say that this one works wonders. Although the deodorant is Rose and Vanilla scented, it also contains tonnes of other gorgeous ingredients such as lavender, sage, bergamot and cedar wood. Applying this deodorant is a different process to your average roll on or spray product but once you’ve done it a couple of times it becomes second nature; to apply just scoop out a little of the formula using the spatula provided, warm the product up between your fingers before applying onto your underarms.

Since I love the Schmidts deodorant pot so much, as soon as I saw these natural deodorant sticks I knew that I just HAD to have them! If you’re new to natural deodorants, I would say that these sticks are a really great place to start because the application is much the same as that of a normal roll on product. I love each and every once of the scents, but for me the tea tree fragrance is the one I’m gravitating towards; it smells so wonderfully clean and keeps me feeling refreshed all day long. Love this stuff!

Onto the makeup now and I just HAVE to mention this absolutely beautiful limited edition Mac lipstick which was designed by (and named after!!) my good friend Alessandra Steinherr. You guys know that I’m a sucker for rosie lips and let me tell you, this baby has made all of my lipstick dreams come true! The ‘Alessandra’ lipstick is the most gorgeous nude-pink shade that I’ve ever laid my eyes on and if you guys are in the market for a new Spring colour then you just have to get your hands on one of these. The formula is so wonderfully creamy and feels so comfortable on my lips, it’s the perfect go-to for your everyday lip colour. I’m in love! Pick it up in-store at Harvey Nichols or online here.

Since Spring is kind of here…ish I thought I’d mention this new bronzer from Dior which is absolutely gorgeous! It’s a limited edition product that gives a gorgeous glow to your complexion. It also comes with a mini kabuki brush which is cute!

It’s no secret that I’m a huge self-confessed hoarder when it comes to fragrances and this perfume by Maison Louis Marie in the scent ‘No 4’ is a welcome addition to my collection. What I love about this fragrance is that it smells so warm and woody. No 4 is a sandalwood fragrance with notes cedar wood, spicy nutmeg, cinnamon and vetiver which come together to form something really sexy and sophisticated. If you love this scent as much as I do then you’ll be pleased to know that it also comes in candle form. Perfect! Shoutout to Carrie for showing it to me!

If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen me wearing this AMAZING zodiac sweater by one of my favourite brands, Chinti & Parker. I’m totally obsessed with Astrology and absolutely love learning about all of the different zodiac signs and what they mean, so this sweater is a dream come true for me. I’m a Leo and I love to think that I like to thing that I have a lot of ‘Leo’ traits. Leo’s are said to be very loyal, headstrong and optimistic and we’re also known to be quite straightforward and tend not to ‘mince our words’ which is also quite true in my case! I’m totally proud to be a Leo so I love wearing my sign for all to see!

This month I totally jumped on the ‘mules’ trend when i picked up these beautiful blush velvet heeled sandals by Dune London. I thought that these mules might look a little dressy for me, but paired with my fave jeans and a simple tee these shoes actually look super cool and casual enough for me to feel comfortable. Love these!

I hope you guys enjoyed seeing some of the new beauty and fashion pieces that I’ve acquired this month!
