The Vegan Kind Subscription Box #TVK12

IMG_2933 IMG_2932

Another month and another fantastic Vegan Kind box is delivered to my door. I receive a Vegan Kind* subscription box every month and I have never been disappointed and although I’ve had quite a few boxes now I always get excited to discover what is inside. Although I’m not a vegan I am definitely a foodie so finding out about new vegan foods excites me. The Vegan Kind boxes may also include beauty and household products along with the yummy vegan snacks. Each box also contains a delicious recipe and this month it was a cake recipe which made my mouth water – it looks so good! To subscribe to The Vegan Kind’s lifestyle box click HERE, it costs £10 per month (+£3.15 P+P) and 10p from every box sold is donated to a charity which is chosen by us, the customers, on their Facebook page. This month the charity is Manchester & Cheshire Dogs’ Home which was where that dreadful fire took place.

So whats inside #TVK12?

 * Angelic Gluten Free Double Chocolate Cookies 125g RRP £2.60 ~ who doesn’t love a bit of guilt free chocolately goodness? I’m such a chocolate lover I couldn’t wait to munch into these. They tasted pretty yummy but afterwards left a little bit of a powdery taste in my mouth. However, for only 70 calories per cookie I can live with it. These cookies are perfect for vegans or those who have allergies to wheat, gluten, dairy and eggs as they don’t have any of these sometime problematic ingredients in them. I’ve still got a couple of cookies left and writing about them has made me want to eat one with a nice cup of tea – perfect on a gloomy day.

* Howdah Onion Bhajis 100g RRP £2.39 ~  A family sized bag of crisp-like onion bhajis are a yummy savoury snack which are great to share. Made with locally sourced ingredients and the best herbs and spices, this snack is actually quite spicy and so flavoursome.

* Premae Skincare Triumph Creme Balm 10ml RRP £33.66 ~ A luxury and intense moisturiser which includes anti-aging properties from vitamins A,C & K. It is also enriched with Frankincense – fancy! This moisturiser is fairly thick in consistency so I suspect it will last a long time. When I tried it I popped it on my hands and made them really soft and my hands are so dry from pushing my wheelchair, however, this product is actually for the face so didn’t I feel silly! I would love to use this product on my face before bed so it can sink into my skin and work its magic. The full sized product of this is 15ml and costs £51 so to get this 10ml sample is fantastic. If you’re interested in this product you can get 20% with the code TVKPREMAE at www.premaeskincare.com

* Landgarten Organic Dark Chocolate Covered Raspberries 90g RRP £1.99 ~ Although I’m not a dark chocolate fan I found these dark chocolate covered raspberries to be quite tasty. I really like the fact that the raspberries used are organic and the chocolate is fair-trade – its the little things but they make all the difference. These would be a great healthy snack – I just hope they taste nice! If you fancy trying some snacks like this you can get 10% off your order with the code VEGAN at www.landgarten.co.uk

* Nom Organic Oat Bar 52g RRP £1.49 ~ This oat bar was delicious and definitely an energy booster which makes it great for before or after you workout. This oat bar is packed with nutrients and anti-oxidants and is free from dairy & refined sugars and is made using virgin coconut oil. Nom strive to make products which are healthy alternatives whilst you’re on-the-go.

Get The Look & Get Ready With Me ~ Plum Seduction Makeup & Hair

grwm plum IMG_2844

Happy Friday beautiful people, so sorry I have been a little quiet on the blog lately but I’ve been working hard on my YouTube channel. I prefer putting up blog posts I’m happy with so I’m not going to force myself to blog if I have nothing interesting to offer you. Today I thought I would share this weeks video and give you the links of where to purchase the products for yourself so you can do a little shopping…it is the weekend after all. Anyway, this weeks video is a get ready with me and I love filming these videos as they’re always a bit more spontaneous than a tutorial – even if the voiceovers are a struggle to record with two yappy dogs going crazy. I had no idea what look I was going for when I filmed the look above all I knew is that I wanted to wear the Gerard Cosmetics lipgloss as it is so vampy and perfect for the upcoming months. Also, for once I show how I have my hair curled with GHD’s by my lovely assistant, Fiona.

Check out the video below.

Bring The Spa To Your Home With Janjira

IMG_2681 IMG_2686 IMG_2695 IMG_2696 IMG_2697

 

Janjira is a brand I have recently been introduced to and I adore it. Janjira is a brand which was born in Thailand and they offer their customers only the best natural skincare products. Along with leaving our skin satisfied Janira believe their products also helps to relax the body as well as energise the mind. I love anything to do with wellbeing so I couldn’t wait to try a couple of products from the Thai Lime & Ginger range and the Massage Candle. Before I continue let me just say that the smell of these products is absolutely incredible.

Janjira Massage Candle *~ When I first heard of this I was intrigued as I am sure you are. Initially I thought, how on earth could you pour hot oil from a candle on to your body without burning yourself. However, I gave it ago and was so surprised that the oil was only slightly warm as I massaged it into my skin. Afterwards my skin felt so soft and looked shiny but didn’t feel greasy at all. The smell of this massage candle is very difficult for me to explain but take my word for it, its lush, it has hints of zest to it but also a creamy very slight floral scent. Once you have lit the candle and let the oil melt a bit you blow the flame out and easily pour the oil into your hand with the spout end of the holder. Once you have used it the oil then solidifies again so you never waste any product. This would be such a romantic gift or great for somebody who could do with a bit of TLC.

Janjira  Thai Lime & Ginger Sugar Milky Body Scrub * ~ With a combination of very beneficial natural ingredients from argan kernel oil to ginger root extract and lots in-between (click the link to read all ingredients) combined with refined sugar this scrub really scrubs away your dry skin sins. Once you have scrubbed your body you are left with a phenomenal smell of ginger and lime which lingers on your body all day.

Janjira Thai Lime Ginger Shower Scrub * ~ This has to be the product out of the three which I have used most. It is a shower gel and scrub in one however, the scrub in this product isn’t as intense as the previous scrub which makes it suitable for everyday use. Each time I use this I feel so clean, it lathers up well on my shower puff and just leaves my skin smelling so zesty, like I have literally stepped out of a spa. The only flaw in this product is that the pump doesn’t work too well so I have to undo the top to release the product – this may just be mine though.

I am obsessed with how amazing this line of Janjira products are, I just need to get myself a everyday moisturiser and i’ll be good to go. Who needs a spa?!

September 2014 Wish List!

wish1wish2

 

Sitting in the house over the weekend only encourages online shopping so instead of going crazy and burning a hole in my pocket I thought I’d put together a little wish list! The pricy items from this wish list are very unlikely to end up in my possession but you know its my birthday next month if you fancy treating me!? Ha ha!

1) The Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette ~ This palette looks so stunning how could I not want this!? I first saw it on Kandee Johnson’s giveaway a few days ago and have wanted it ever since. The Vice 3 palette has a variety of finishes from matte, metallic, shimmer and satin, along with a variety of different shades, which means something for every look! The thing is I can only see it on the US website not the UK one…argh. However, I’m guessing it will be available in the UK soon right?!

2) Moschino Long Sleeved Jumper ~ Well hello Barbie. All over my social media I’ve seen so many posts about Moschino’s Barbie inspired runway show previewing their S/S 2015 line of a girly girls dream collection. Once I watched the show I felt like this collection was made for Elle Woods (Legally Blonde). I really want this cute cropped jumper in my life but for £292 I’m going to have to just want it…forever.

3) River Island Dark Floral Bardot Top ~ I love Bardot tops as I find them so flattering and feminine as well as kind of effortless. I’m really glad they are making an appearance this Autumn and this one from River Island is perfect. The floral pattern reminds me of tapestry and could even be worn into the winter months and its only £18.

4) Lorac Mega Pro Palette ~ OMG, when I saw this palette on Lorac’s Instagram I knew I instantly needed it in my collection. It has a whopping 32 shades in it and I’m guessing the quality will be amazing. This isn’t out until October but I will be on a mission to get it even if I have to have it shipped from the US.

5) Seletti Wears ToiletPaper Lipstick Tray ~ This is a bit of a random one but I just love it. It is a tray with what appears to be business men holding lipsticks. I think this will look great to place lippies on or just bits and bobs.

6) Burberry Colour Block Check Blanket Poncho ~ OK, I know, I know, even if this was in stock I wouldn’t buy it because it would end up costing me over £1,000. However, I have been known to spend this much on handbags but I have a sensible head which says this may not be my cup of tea next year but for now I LOVE IT. After seeing copious amounts of celebs wearing it I’ve been drooling. It looks so cosy yet chic and I just love the idea of the initials on it too.

7) ASOS Floral Crochet Top ~ I love the laid back look of crochet and I would usually be only obsessed with this boho style in the Summer but somehow I just love this top and the shape of its sleeves so would consider wearing it in the Autumn months.

8) Lapaige Trends Pout Tree ~ OK, one thing that excites me about moving house is having lots more space for my makeup and I can’t stop thinking about it. I know that I need this ‘pout tree’ in my life. It is a lipstick holder which spins around but you can also put brushes in it and anything like that. WOW, That wasn’t the best explanation but you get my just. I think I would purchase it in white. Love it!

I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend xx

W7 The Honey Queen Blusher

IMG_2735 IMG_2741

Its obvious but sometimes affordable makeup just isn’t the best quality but amongst the bad we can find hidden gems which become some of our favourites. Just last week W7, an affordable cosmetic brand, sent me their Honey Queen blusher* and I haven’t stopped using it since. The first thing I noticed about this blush was the packaging, its bold, pretty and looks suspiciously similar to another brand *cough* Benefit *cough*. Inside the boxed blush you’ll find a cute mini brush which has a small black handle with white and pink bristles. I have to say I never use these brushes as I never need to and they’re never great but I guess it is a nice touch if you’re somebody who likes to touch up throughout the day whilst you’re out. The blush itself is made up of a combination of shades which is made up into a honeycomb pattern. I’m not the greatest at describing colours so won’t go through what every honeycomb pattern shade is but you can see in the photo above. Once you swirl your brush through the combo of colours you’re left with a pretty peachy rose gold colour which is slightly iridescent. It looks so beautiful on the cheeks and although it isn’t the most pigmented blush in the world it is definitely one that you can build up to intensify the colour. I’ve also found that with this blush it isn’t necessary to apply a highlighter because it leaves such a pretty sheen to the cheeks. The blush doesn’t look talcy (although, obviously contains talc) and the shimmer it leaves isn’t made up of chunky glitter but a fine shimmer – yay. The best bit? It only costs £4.95! Such a bargain.
