Beauty Heroes June Box Modern Minerals

19 Jun 2016

This month's Beauty Heroes box arrived whilst I was on holiday but luckily for me I saw a sneaky peek on Instagram at the beginning of the month so I knew what was going be inside when I got home to it! I'm only just getting round to posting so you'll all probably have seen it already but I love sharing each month's box!
Beauty Heroes June Box Modern Minerals Review
Modern Minerals have created their Emotive Make-up Collection including two lip glosses, a highlighter and an eyeshadow. The total value of this box is $96, well above the $39 retail price. When I found out it was make-up in this box I have to say I wasn't that excited, however now that I've had a play with the products I'm seriously impressed!

"Proving that beauty radiates from the inside out, this Modern Minerals color collection is infused with Lotus Wei gem and flower essences, silky coconut and a touch of rose to uplift and awaken positivity while minimizing the effects of negative emotions."

The products in this box took a year for Modern Minerals to create and they simply couldn't decide on the perfect lip gloss shade, so they released both! Padparadscha is a Lotus Wei infused lip gloss that is a rare "rosy sapphire" colour whilst Citrine is a "golden nude shade".

Padparadscha isn't as bright on my lips as it looks in the tube but it's a gorgeous shade and suits me really well. I haven't tried Citrine yet but it looks like a lovely clear-nude gloss.

Their Modern Moonstone Cream Highlighter is being exclusively launched to Beauty Heroes members so if you want to get your hands on this, you need to subscribe by 20th June, although boxes have been selling out fast so be quick! It is a golden shimmering highlighter and is absolutely gorgeous.

The last product is the Rose Quartz eyeshadow which has been selected for its perfectly universal shade.  This look a lot darker in the circular pot than it does when swatched. It is infused with the essence of rose, coconut and Vitamin E for "long-lasting, crease-proof luminosity". Almost all eyeshadows crease on me so it'll be interesting to see how this holds up...I'll do a full review shortly.

Summer Holiday Essentials

31 May 2016

Today I am bringing you a post all about my top holiday essentials, in collaboration with my good friend Sarah from Sugarpuffish. I'm heading to Corfu on 3 June for a week and Sarah is going abroad for her sister's wedding this Summer so we thought it would be good to share our holiday essentials.

The first and most important product for holiday is suncream and I'll be taking the Green People SPF 30 with me. It's scent free so ideal for sensitive skin or those who get prickly heat often and it offers UVA and UVB protection. I'll also be packing the Green People Soft Lips Lip Balm which has SPF8 to protect my lips whilst sunbathing.
A couple of balms that I'll be taking with me from WiDEYE are the Sun & Wind Repair and the Barefoot Rescue. I always get dry feet when on holiday from wearing flip flops and sandals all day long so I'll be applying this in the evenings along with the repair balm on any patches that I might have caught the sun on!

Kure Bazaar have launched a new range for Summer and I'm absolutely loving the shades. I have Pistache which is a unusual yellow/green shade and Jade which is a gorgeous turquoise-blue green shade. I'll be taking both of these on holiday with me.
Petits Rituels are one of my favourite natural candle brands and just in time for my holiday, they've launched a range of Travel Candles. I'll be taking Minty Bonbon with me to make the hotel room smell amazing! This is such a beautiful scent, so uplifting and refreshing.

I've really loved People Tree's Spring/Summer collection and a favourite of mine is the Aspen Dress which has a gorgeous blue floral print on it. I also picked up a white & blue striped 3/4 top from People Tree on Amazon which is the perfect nautical outfit! Keep an eye out for some photos on my Instagram of me wearing them on holiday!

An easy skincare routine is essential when I'm holiday as I can't really be bothered to do an extensive regime at night. I'm taking the Mallow & White Blossom Balm and a travel size Therapi Honey Skincare Lemon Toner which will also come in handy for refreshing my skin on the plane. A new product I'll be packing is Cacay Oil from Ooh! Oils of Heaven which you can get on Love Lula. Apparently this is the new "rave" oil! I'll also pack the Mahalo Rare Indigo Balm in case I catch a little too much sun or get any pesky spots!
I'll be packing one of the newest products to my green beauty stash which is the Bodhi & Birch Botanic Dew Hand & Body Wash. This smells so gorgeous, the peppermint really comes through and it's refreshing so perfect for a warm holiday.
I also love a body oil on holiday...I was sent this MyCoco one a little while ago and never got round to using it, purely because it's mainly coconut oil and I can't be bothered to wait for it to melt! Another essential is a good natural deodorant and I'm packing the Schmidt's stick deodorant in Lavender & Sage.

Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream (or the little that I have left!) will be making its way into my make-up bag as this will be perfect for applying in the morning to give my skin a little glow, whilst offering sun protection at the same time. A couple of other make-up products that I think are essential for a sunny holiday is a highlighter and lip gloss. I hate applying loads of make-up when it's too hot so these three products will be enough for me. I'm taking the Ilia Butterfly & I which is a beautiful peach shade and the Ere Perez Highlighter. I'll probably take a few extra little bits for dinner in the evening but not much more!

I hope you've enjoyed this post! Head over to Sarah's blog to read all about her Summer Holiday Essentials too.

Introducing Nectar & Bumble...

27 May 2016

As I announced in last week's #GreenChat, I have recently been working on a website and I am so, so excited to announce that it has now launched!

Nectar & Bumble is a new online store stocking a range of products all based around bees. If you can't tell from my blog design, I am a little obsessed with bees and you'll often find me taking photos of them whenever I see any and buying anything that has a bee on it! I have a lot of favourite brands who sell bee related products and I thought what better way to bring them all together, than with my own online store, where I'll be donating 10% of profits to bee charities too.
There's three sections to the store; gifts, homeware and natural skincare. We have beautiful candles from Beefayre that have hand-drawn designs on the glass, honey-filled moisturisers from Therapi Honey Skincare and super cute bee print mugs from Creature Candy, just to name a few.

I have also been working on a collaboration with Mallow + White founder, Joanna, on a 100% organic multi-purpose balm that will be exclusive to Nectar & Bumble for now. We fell in love with a beautiful blend of apricot kernel, sunflower and camellia oil, with beeswax and lavender & rosemary essential oils. It's perfect for cleansing the skin, as an overnight mask or simply anywhere that needs a bit of nourishing. I'm so, so excited about this balm and it's been a pleasure working with Joanna on choosing the ingredients and collaborating together!

There will be a blog on the site where we'll share post on how to save bees, identification of bees, photos of days out to National Trust gardens and we also stock Seedball Bee Mix so you can play a part in helping to save the bees too by creating a bee-friendly haven for bees in your gardens!
We'll also be stocking a few handmade items including bee print make-up bags, lavender filled bags and last but certainly not least are prints and notebooks  designed by my sister, Mia Felce. We both came up with a few design ideas and Mia got drawing, then put them onto the computer to digitally alter them into prints. There are three different designs to choose from and these will be launching in a few weeks time!

We will be donating 10% of our profits to bee charities and conservations in order to help save the bees and we hope it encourages others to take an interest too! We'll be gradually expanding the ranges over the next few months, introducing more stock as we go along!

I hope you all love the website. If you would like to shop, I have a 10% discount for you "ABT10" valid until midnight 8th June.
