Having grown up in the UK, when I was in my school days a cartoon character brand that was very popular was “Forever Friends”. If you’ve never heard of this brand, it’s basically really cute drawings of cuddly-looking teddy bears, and back in the 90s, a lot of girls adored these lovable characters.

With a lot of my friends at the time in their life where they’re getting married, Bridesmaid invitation cards are a thing that’s come into my attention lately. In helping one of my best friends to plan her wedding, we’ve been looking together at Bridesmaid invites and I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite ones that I’ve found on Zazzle; a personalizable online invitation shop that delivers worldwide. They have a “Customize it” button that allows you to change the text however you wish which I thought was really cool.

I recently discovered a talented British artist called Caroline Hely Hutchinson who does the most beautiful, colourful hand painted ceramics, porcelain and bone china work. Her work is available on a lot of different products and I just wanted to share some of my favourite examples of her work with you, because her pieces are just so vibrant, uplifting and beautiful! Have a look!

Today I received an email from Amazon letting me know that they have an “Amazon Local” service that previous I had not heard about. I had a look at local.amazon.co.uk to check out exactly what it is, and turns out that Amazon has branched out yet again (past expansions including the invention of the Kindle, and the introduction of Amazon Prime’s video-streaming programme); expanding beyond selling books, food, clothing, electronics and other products, to also selling tickets for theatre shows, sporting events, festivals, concerts, restaurant / hotel deals, courses for learning different skills, therapeutic treatments (from massage to pedicures and reflexology) and other “experience days”!

If you’re looking for cool bedding and fun bedroom decor ideas, glow in the dark bedding seems to me to be a good road to go down! I didn’t even know this existed until today. Isn’t it a cool idea? I thought so! :)
I found these neat girly glow-in-the-dark bedding sets on Amazon.com made by a company called Veratex:

In my last post I mentioned that I’ve been watching beauty vlogs lately on youtube, and that made me think that it could be fun to give you a list of some of my favorite girly fashion and beauty youtubers that I would recommend. In no particular order (since they’re all equally awesome!), here goes! (more…)

I’ve been watching a lot of Beauty Vlogs lately on youtube, and inspired by this, I thought it would be fun to share with you one of my favourite beauty products which I’ve been using for several years now. I’m going to talk about one of the best facial cleansers I’ve come across, which is this one:
It’s by the company “Green People” and it’s called “Gentle Cleanse and Make-up remover”. (Link to this product on Amazon.co.uk) Now, I know it’s classed as a make-up remover as well as a cleanser, but I use it as a straight up cleanser, including on days when I don’t wear make-up (which for me is most days if I’m honest!), and I really do love it.
Why do I love it?
Beautiful Smell: First of all, it smells *amazing*. It’s florally sweet and feminine and just divine. It’s scented with Rose Geranium which I think is what gives it that classy smell that always makes me feel pampered.
It is gentle on the skin: I have quite sensitive skin, and Green People’s facial cleanser is really gentle, alcohol-free, and has never caused any irritation at all. Even my most sensitive area, the eyes, aren’t irritated by it. You can wipe it over your eyelids and it just feels cool and soothing.
It cleanses really well: The way I use it, I take a little round cotton wool pad, soak it in water, wring it out, and then put a small dab of the creamy cleanser on the pad, spreading it round, before applying it in circular movements to my face. Without going into too much detail to avoid gross TMI, you can literally *see* it does a good job by looking at the cotton wool after using it (it always amazes me!), and it leaves your skin feeling fresh, clean, smooth and soft. Since using it, I hardly ever get blemishes any more.
I like the natural ingredients:
As someone who has studied Naturopathy and Nutrition, I often look at the ingredient list of products and I’ve found that the ingredients list includes aloe vera, calendula, shea butter and jojoba which are all great natural ingredients for healthy skin. I also love that it’s free from SLS, parabens, propylene glycol, alcohol, harsh foaming agents, petrochemicals and other chemicals, and I like that it’s mostly made from organic ingredients. (The tube I have says that 91% of the contents are organic).
I like the texture: It’s creamy, silky and smooth, which I like.
It lasts a really long time: Which makes it good value for money. I think one 200ml bottle usually lasts me a good 6 months or so, if not longer.
It also works as a great make-up remover: Which isn’t that important for me since I don’t wear much make-up, but I know it will be a good bonus for other girls out there.

So yeah! I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a healthy-option, “green”, (91%) organic, natural facial cleanser. If you’d like to read some other people’s opinions on it, you can check out the reviews on the Amazon.co.uk product page that you can get to via this link. There are also quite a few reviews on the Green People website – here’s the link to that. I tried to see if you can get it on Amazon.com but couldn’t find it on there at the moment. It may pop up at some stage though, so here’s the link to Amazon.com for you just in case.

Ok, so I know smell is a very subjective thing in terms of what a good smell is, but today I discovered what for me is one of the best smelling hand soaps I’ve ever smelled, and I wanted to share it with you!
The soap is called: “Rosewater Pure Natural Hand Soap” and it’s made by the brand Jason. The name sometimes varies since they occasionally change it when they alter the packaging, but it’s usually got “Rosewater” in the name.
Why do I love it? I feel like it literally smells like the most beautifully smelling rose. It’s sweet, fresh, delicate and ladylike and just.. mmmm! heavenly!
Another reason I like this liquid hand soap is that it is made by a company that makes an effort to put good things in their products so that they will be better for your health and the environment. This handsoap for example doesn’t contain parabens and SLS, and isn’t tested on animals, which I think is great. And it cleans using natural antibacterials like grapefruit extract, and has natural moisturizing factors like wheat germ oil, which I also think is awesome.
The only minus is that the bottle it comes in isn’t as pretty as other bottles you can get. But you can always decant the liquid soap into a pretty soap dispenser. You can find some pretty kitchen or bathroom soap dispensers both on Amazon (.com or .co.uk) and lately Zazzle (.com or .co.uk) has also started making soap dispensers in a huge array of designs (I think currently it’s almost 50,000 different designs! And the number of designs is growing every day so it’s worth checking out if you’re on the look out for one.) Add the type of design you’re looking for in their search bar eg floral soap dispenser etc, to help you find exactly what you’re looking for. Below are some of my personal favorite Zazzle soap dispenser designs. You can click on the photos and it will take you to the corresponding product page on Zazzle:
Just wanted to share this with you! If you have any recommendations for other amazing smelling soaps, let me know in the comments below – I’d love to discover more great-smelling hand soaps. :)
