Spring Haul feat. Miss Guided; Boo Hoo; Very; Miss Pap; American Eagle & Miss Selfridge

Hey Sweeties,

I feel like I haven’t done a haul post in FOREVER… that’s not to say I haven’t been haulin’ though, it means I just haven’t had the time/weather/patience/opportunity etc. to shoot everything. Normally, when I’ve fashion hauled I either photograph it on which involves standing in the garden with my camera on a tripod and the self-timer; or occasionally I have made use of the washing line (for example here). Today, I have tried something new… the fashion flat lay!

My spring haul has been building since January when I picked up a couple of bits in the sales, and then gradually over the past couple of months I have been adding to it. At the end of April I am off on honeymoon to America (so freakin’ excited!) for a couple of weeks, so I am also beginning to look at my current wardrobe and identify any gaps for warmer weather attire that I might need for my trip. So without further ado, here are some of my recent purchases –

What Makes Me Happy? | International Day of Happiness

Hey Sweeties,

A bonus post today outside of my routine weekly posting days (Tuesday and Thursday fyi), but as it’s the International Day of Happiness I thought I would share all the things that make me happy. Fortunately, I am a glass half full kinda’ gal; I have my low days, sure but even when things are looking pretty shit, I can see through to the other side.

What makes me Happy?

Naturelle Cosmetics Face Cream | Skincare Review

Hey Sweeties,

I am excited to review for you today another organic skincare product – the Naturelle Cosmetics face cream*. Not only do I love finding new organic, cruelty-free products to try, my skin more often than not responds to them really well too.

Naturelle Cosmetics is a private, family-owned business based in the UK. The company take huge pride in being able to source and supply their customers with cosmetic products from organic, certified farms in France, Italy, Portugal, Spain and the UK. This is the the first time I have tried anything from this brand so I was looking forward to giving the face cream a go.

The Packaging

To be brutally honest, the packaging doesn’t do the Naturelle Cosmetics face cream any favours. The box arrived a bit battered from the post, and while the bottle itself is okay, the branding and labelling doesn’t scream try me. However, the cardboard packaging and branding aside, I like a good pump on a bottle and this one distributes enough product nicely.

For ages I thought I had normal skin that loves a good hydrating moisturiser, but following my recent deep cleansing facial at No. 1 Hair & Beauty (here), I learnt that I actually have combination skin -a mixture of dry and oily. I now totally appreciate why my skin adores a good hydrating moisturiser and this Naturelle Cosmetics face cream is brilliant for this.

On the box – A daily treatment specifically designed for sensitive and dehydrated skin enriched with organic argan oil, organic orange blossom water, organic shea butter, beeswax and tocopheryl. Nourishes, repairs and restructures the epidermis owing to its anti-free-radial effect. The skin’s tone, softness and radiance are all improved.

I like also that a little goes a long way -a single pump or two delivers a pea sized amount which is ample to cover the face. For a good 2-3 hours after application I can still feel my face hydrated and radiant from the product, which absorbs quickly but its effects I feel for ages after.

The Verdict

The packaging lets the Naturelle Cosmetics face cream down a little, but the product itself I really like and retailing at £8.45 it hardly breaks the bank. I think for your money, you’re actually getting a very good product and for that I would definitely recommend this product to you.

What are you favourite organic, cruelty-free skincare products?
