My March Birchbox

I was really excited about this month’s box. Birchbox were helping us subscribers search for the ultimate beauty discovery and as I had not heard of most brands except one, it definitely was refreshing. Firstly the box design was a word search. I haven't done one in years so it was a great pastime and why not, if there’s £400 worth of goodies up for grabs! So back to the amazing selection of products I received. I was excited to give these a go, because I had not heard of them and they sounded like the perfect kind of products anybody would want.

Sunday Funday: Pamper me up

What a horrible weekend it has been filled with icy winds and hailstones. I've enjoyed the weekend at home just pampering myself and drinking lots of tea and staying away from the coldness. My skin has been looking rough too and I deserved a much well deserved pamper. Honestly, I dont manage to give my self a facial or mask every week, so this weekend was all about me. I started by just cleansing with my normal facial cleanser.As the moment I am using Emma Hardie’s Amazing Face Balm. Its soft balm which melts once warmed up with the fingers and against your skin. Its gentle and nourishing and works a treat. It leaves my skin feeling soft and clean. I used a hot facial towel to remove the pro
