From Nature, Simple Goodness Skin Care Review

Finding the perfect body wash and moisturiser is something that have been trying to do for a while now. I find that I'm very fussy with strong scents and consistency, along with the packaging (this shouldn't really matter, but to me it does) and price.

From Nature isn't a brand I'm familiar with, but I was gifted the bath and body set at Christmas time and have only just got round to using it. I'm slightly annoyed with myself for taking so long to eventually use these products as they are A.mazing for my skin

The set includes Cleansing Coconut Body Wash, Softening Coconut Body Butter, Softening Coconut Lip Butter, Cleansing Mango Body Wash, Moisturising Mango Body Butter, Conditioning Lemon & Lime Hand Lotion and Conditioning Cherry Lip Butter.
Unfortunately for me I don't like the smell of coconuts so I haven't been able to use any of the coconut based products and have given those to my sister, but I have loved using the Mango, Lemon & Lime and Cherry products.

Cleansing Mango Body Wash: Firstly the smell is delicious, it makes me want to eat it but more importantly it's so moisturising and leaves my skin feeling lovely and clean.

Moisturising Mango Body Butter: I love love LOVE this body butter, it has the same smell as the body wash but as it's a body butter the smell stays on your skin all day. I'm very sad that it only came in a 50ml bottle as I have used three quarters already after 2 applications! Must buy some more!

Conditioning Lemon & Lime Hand Lotion: This hand lotion is actually now my favourite hand cream, it has taken over from my Cherry Cupcake hand cream ( you can find the review for that  HERE). It smells so citrus-y and is moisturising, conditioning and non greasy. 

Conditioning Cherry Lip Butter: This lip butter is probably on par with Carmex and I love carmex! It doesn't leave a tingling feeling on my lips which, to me, is a little disappointing but it is super moisturising. It also smells and tastes delicious, like real cherries. I find that I put it and end up licking it off, is that weird of me? Ha I guess it is. 

I think From Nature is a great brand and I love the Simple Goodness range. I like the packaging as it's simple and colourful. It certainly brightens up my shower! Sadly I'm not sure on the prices of these items as they were a Christmas gift and I'm also not too sure where to buy them from. I've had a quick google but haven't found anything as of yet. Alas! I will ask my step-brother and his girlfriend where they bought this from though as I need some more in my life! A bit dramatic but hey ho! 

Do you have a favourite brand of Bath and Body Products?

Charmed, I'm Sure

 I have always been a huge fan of bracelets, bangles and any other sort of jewellery that can go around my wrists as they just really tickle my pickle ha! I like to jazz up a plain outfit with something colourful, sparkly and different and I seem to have accumulated a vast amount wrist jewellery. 
My favourite bracelet has to be my LoveLinks charm bracelet. At first I thought that it was just an exact copy of the Pandora charm bracelets, without the extortionate price tag, and in some ways I was right, but the main difference is that there is a wider range of charms for LoveLinks bracelets than Pandora bracelets. This pleases me very much as I can make my bracelet look exactly the way I want it.

I absolutely adore the little frog charm as frogs are my favourite animal and I think it's super cute! You can find the LoveLinks website HERE.

Does anyone else own a LoveLinks Bracelet? Do you love it as much as I do?

Xtrasonline Order

Every now and then I have a little shopping spree from the comfort of my own bedroom. I'm not one who can spend hours online buying cosmetics as I'm quite fussy, indecisive and I love to shop on the high street (what girl doesn't?).  I bought the products below from xtrasonline, you can find their website HERE. I love this website as it's almost giving you a second chance at buying products that may have been discontinued or cosmetics that can be difficult to find on the high street at wonderfully low prices... intrigued yet?
Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipsticks: Apricot Shimmer, Rose Sunrise & Flamingo

Maybelline Shadow Liner Bordeaux 

Maybelline Shadow Liner Bordeaux

Revlon Creme Gloss: Crush on Coral

Revlon Beyond Natural Defining Mascara Black

Rimmel After Dark Eyeshadow

The great thing about this little online shop was that the total price was around £19 including postage and packaging. I would definitely urge you to have a little peruse on the website and I'm sure you will find some products that will float your boat! 
If you would like a review on any of the products above then please let me know.
I have just started a YouTube channel which will have reviews, tutorials, chitchat and general bits and bobs so please check it out.

YouTube Most Recent Favourites

Apologies for the absence lately girlies, my life has been absolutely hectic and I haven't had the time to do anything exciting! But I am back on the blogging scene and I have just entered a new realm! That realm being YouTube videos.

I have just uploaded my first ever YouTube video about my most recent favourite products. It would really make my day if you had a little looksee at my video and I would like to know what you think :)
I'm still a little shy in front of the camera and I did feel like a bit of idiot talking to myself but I did really enjoy doing it and can see myself making some more videos in the near future. The link is
I have a few collective haul (ergh I hate that word) posts to do so they will be up soon.

Hope you've all had a fantastic few weeks
