This post is up a little later than usual as I'm having some medical treatment (for my Ehlers Danlos) which is ongoing for the next few months. It's called Prolotherapy, if any of you want to look it up, and in the past I've posted about it here. I may do a blog post on here about it if you guys are interested? It's a very painful and draining treatment and therefore everything, including my blog work, is taking me longer than it usually would! 

It's that time again, today I'm running you through a list of items/products that I have been loving this last month. I have loads of new favourites to share with you!

Elemis Omega Rich Cleansing Oil | You all know by now that Elemis is one of my hero brands when it comes to skincare! I was intrigued to try their new cleansing oil, I got it about last December and I must admit it took me a while to love it. I think it's because I've been used to usually cream cleansers, foaming ones or cleansing balms and using an oil to clean my skin just seemed a bit alien to me. However I persevered and have been using it daily over the last couple months and I literally LOVE it! Blended with 90% natural oils including Winter Rose oil (rich in omega-9), skin conditioning Chia Seed and Pomegranate. Designed to remove even waterproof make up whilst maintaining the skins natural barriers and optimum PH. I find it gentle enough to take over my eyes yet it effectively melts off all of my make up. I will often spend a while massaging it over my face in the evenings a bit like how a therapist does when you're having a facial, enjoying the fragrance and it's so relaxing. Then once you introduce water it turns into a milky consistency and is easy to remove without leaving a residue. I also like to put it on before I get into the shower and just let it rinse off in there. My oily skin type seems to really love it, it feels soft, hydrated and comfortable after use. I've just bought this new one (pictured) so clearly a repurchase means it's a definite thumbs up from me!

Nails Inc Polish And Breathe | Seriously, how perfect is this nail polish shade?! Rose Gold Heaven. This shade is from Nails Inc's brand new Mindful Manicure Collection. These polishes are infused with real gemstones for a unique iridescent finish and are apparently mood enhancing! "Each crystal has an electromagnetic poetry that is said to intensify a persons aura, helping to clarify thoughts, channel energy and heal." This particular one, And Breathe, is infused with Tourmaline and is supposed to help with stress relief & positive energy. Now I can't say I have noticed any of these spiritual effects myself since I've been using it, unless you count just being completely in love with the colour & look of my nails - that's positive isn't?! But it's very long lasting, remains shiny and I've had so many compliments on them and people asking me wear they can get it. I hope Nails Inc bring out some more shades now. I've got the whole Mindful Manicure Collection so I will be doing a blog post with swatches of them as well as the 4 new SS17 colours which you may have also seen me wearing a lot on Instagram lately!

Lush Honey Lip Scrub | I have a bit of a thing for Lush's lip scrubs! Let's face it all their products smell good enough to eat but they are the only products that you can actually taste (as well as the lip balms) without making yourself ill! I think I've tried almost every single one so far, I have a draw full and use one every other day to keep my lips soft & smooth. Lush released this Honey Lip Scrub in their Mother's Day Collection. This one smells like gorgeous honey cut through with a hint of refreshing peppermint it's become one of my new favourites!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette | I felt like I was the only beauty blogger in the entire world who didn't own this coveted palette! However I finally caved and bought it recently and I must says it truly lives up to the hype. You barely need to touch your brush to the shades for an amazing pigment pay off! At first I was a bit afraid of the brighter pinks & red tones in there but they're actually incredibly wearable when blended with the more neutral shades. Or you can use a liner brush to just add some pink underneath the eye for a nice little hint of colour. I've been using the neutral shades mostly though and I'm particularly liking the pale mauve one. Overall every shade blends together beautifully for endless looks! I also was surprised to find that the packaging of the palette itself is actually a textured Suede material which you can't tell from pictures. I think it's a lovely effect to add that extra feeling of luxury! Available at Cult Beauty.

Secret Selma Lipstick by Charlotte TilburyThis has been my go-to lipstick of late! Secret Selma is from Charlotte Tilbury's Hot Lips Collection and is the perfect winter berry-mauve shade. It just seems to go with all of my make up looks at the moment particularly my modern renaissance palette! The square angled tip makes it easy to apply neatly and it's enriched with orchid extract and voluminising 3D pigments to create cashmere soft lips with a lit from within look. I think the texture & finish on the lips is somewhere between her Matte Revolution Lipsticks and her K.I.S.S.I.N.G ones it's not completely Matte it's more of a velvety/suede finish which I love! I got this in the Dreamy Look in a Clutch gift set which is still available and comes with the exclusive Legendary Muse Eye Shadow Palette.

Yankee Candle Driftwood | Driftwood is possibly my favourite scent from the new Coastal Living quartet recently released by Yankee Candle. It reminds me a little of there old classic Beachwood fragrance only richer, deeper and slightly sweeter. It's very woody with notes of driftwood, tonka bean and crisp cedar but also contains some eucalyptus and then some sea salt & waterlily in the top notes making it really unusual and complex. I think it's quite a unisex fragrance so you could buy this one for the man in your life whilst still enjoy it yourself. I've enjoyed burning this one in the evenings. Described as "Like a salty favourite plucked from the beach sand, woody and sun weathered."

  1. All your picks are so nice! I picked up the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette, which is similar to the ABH one and it's growing on me. Looking as gorgeous as ever! So sorry you're going through such draining treatment, I'd definitely read and share a post about it to raise awareness!
