Day 16: A slight deviation from the plan...

16 May 2013

Today's topic: Something difficult about your "lot in life" and how you're working to overcome it. I have been thinking about this a lot today and the words were just not coming. It felt stilted and incomplete. So I have decided that I will hold off on that post and work on it. Instead I am going to talk a little bit about a few products that I have been loving lately:

1. Aveda Stress-fix Body Lotion (here)
I slather this on after my evening bath or shower and immediately I feel comforted, relaxed and calm. The aroma includes "essences of lavender, lavandin and clary sage from organic farms and is formulated using the science of aromaology and the power of pure essential oils". A total treat and one that really does work.

2. Clarins Gentle Foaming Face Wash - Combination/Oily skin (here)
Since I have been over hauling my diet and lifestyle my skin has had a bit of a "moment". Breakouts all over the place. This face wash has really gotten my skin back under control, cleared up my spots and kept it nice and fresh throughout the day. And it is not drying whatsoever!

3. Aveda Smoothing Body Scrub (here)
One of my favourites to take away with me when I am not able to make my own. An absolute luxury to use. If you are ever in the Sloane Square area make sure you take a gander to the Aveda counter in Peter Jones to speak to the lovely ladies there and have a try of these products!

4. The Body Shop Deep Sleep Dreamy Pillow & Body Mist (here)
Another product that helps me sleep like a baby! I spritz this all over my pillow and into the air when I get into bed and it really does help me drift away from the day and slip into dreamland. 

5. The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector (here)
A total must have for nourishing super dry hands. I slather this on before I go to bed and before I leave the flat in the morning and it goes a long way to making my hands look less like an old woman's!! 


  1. This has just reminded me that I have that sleep mist, I have not used it in ages but I'm going to dig it out after I've hit publish, maybe it'll make me fall asleep in less than two hours! I love the hemp hand cream too, I've run out though so have been using the soap and glory one, I have tubes upon tubes of it.

  2. You have such a cute blog! I really like the sound of the pillow spray.. I really suffer from Insomnia, and always struggle to sleep. I'd give anything a try, and this sounds so lovely xx
