Born Wild Tea Review

A lovely company called Born Wild Tea recently sent me 4 of their beautiful tea blends. As we all know here I am a massive sucker for tea, I bloody love the stuff. I was asked by Charlotte at Born Wild Tea what blends I would like, I replied and said that I was happy with a mixture but caffeine free as I do not live that caffeine life. Anxiety and caffeine do not get along.

When I received my teas, I could smell all the gorgeous blends through the envelope. Which obviously made me excited to try them. I invited one of my friends over to do the taste test with me, 2 opinions are always better than one. So without further ado…

 

‘Do Not Disturb’ tea:

This was my favourite one, you could really taste the camomile and lemon grass the strongest. Such a lovely tea for the nighttime, I found it very calming. This is the tea I am definitely going to be reaching for when I need a good nights sleep. The blend in the packet is so pretty with little camomile flowers and lavender.

‘Reggae Refresh’ tea:

Now this one literally smelt incredible in the pack and when it was brewing, the smell of mango and papaya floating around the room. This tea is a very fruity mix but also very uplifting with its hints of lemon grass and ginger.

‘Chocolate Strawberries’ Tea:

The aroma of this tea is very chocolaty but as soon as you brew it and taste it, it literally tastes like chocolate covered strawberries. This one was an unusual one for me as I have never had a tea blend with cocoa in but my friend absolutely loved this one, it was her favourite blend.

‘Detox Delight’ tea:

This to me would be the all time tea during winter, with some of the ingredients being; fennel, cloves and cinnamon. Those were also the main flavours I could taste. If someone was to tell me to describe the scent in one word, it would have to be Christmas. It’s such a warming, comforting blend. Also its such a lovely colour when it’s all brewed.

Reasons To Love Spring

As we are closing the door to winter and opening a new door to spring in a couple of days, I thought why not blog about all the reasons why we should love and be looking forward to spring. Ya know, get us all in the mood for it, so let’s get to it and spring in to spring the right way…

Reasons To Love Spring

  1. The weather starts getting warmer.
  2. Flowers, flowers, flowers. Everywhere you look there are flowers blooming.
  3. Longer days, lighter evenings.
  4. All the baby animals – need I say more?
  5. EASTER!! (Give us all the chocolate, thanks)
  6. We can start to wear pastel shades again. Yay.
  7. No more winter skin – say goodbye to flaky, dry, itchy skin.
  8. Spring clean your home, get rid of clutter & open all your windows.
  9. Laters to winter colds/illnesses. Girl bye.
  10. Driving with the windows down and not freezing your butt off.
  11. The smell of freshly cut grass. Mmm
  12. Dust off that BBQ baby.
  13. Ditch the heavy winter clothes, its time to start packing them away till next time.
  14. People seem to be more optimistic and happier when spring has sprung. Love that a lot.
  15. Picnics, all the picnics.
  16. You can just go outside, breath in the air & live that spring life.
  17. Majority of all the fun events start in spring.
  18. You can just do so many more outdoor activities when its warmer. Bring on all the fun.

 

I really hope you enjoyed reading all the reasons why you should be loving that we are coming into spring very soon. Let me know in the comments below why you love spring and what your favourite things to do are.

I feel really sorry for the people who suffer with hay fever to any degree. It makes the spring and summer months quite hard I can imagine. Try and enjoy it as much as you can though!

Thanks for reading, see you next week.

Neal’s Yard Facial at The Beauty Spot

Hello my lovely little readers, hope you are all well!?

This weeks blog post is going to be all about the relaxing facial I had recently at The Beauty Spot. I was invited to come and have a facial by the lovely Chloe who owns the salon.

The Beauty Spot is a lovely salon, very calming & professional. They also only use Neal’s Yard products, which is amazing as Neal’s Yard is organic and all ingredients are natural. I find great comfort in this as you know that what is about to be put on your skin is all natural as apposed to lots of other products that are packed with chemicals.

The Facial

My facial consisted of, eye and lip cleanse, facial cleanse, toning, exfoliator, steam, extractions, mask, massage, eye cream & facial serum. At the beginning and end of my treatment Chloe would ask me to do some breathing exercises with her. This is something I have never experienced during a facial, I actually felt that this was very relaxing and calming.

Chloe was very attentive during my treatment, she made sure I was ok and asked if the products felt ok on my skin as I had told her prior to my treatment that my skin can be sensitive to products. I felt very looked after during my time at The Beauty Spot.

After my facial was finished I felt very relaxed. I could have laid on the beauty couch for the rest of the day. My face after looked really healthy and glowing.

I was so impressed with my experience and would 100% come back and have more treatments.

The Beauty Spot salon is based in South Woodham Ferrers, Essex.
You can reach Chloe at chloe@beautyspottherapy.com

There is a vast range of treatments to be had at The Beauty Spot, from facials to spray tans to gel nails.

Go and pamper yourself!

February Faves | With Lifewithmcm

Its that time of the month again, favourites time. This month I will be doing my first collaboration with the lovely Megan McCoig who runs an amazing lifestyle blog Lifewithmcm. Make sure that you go over and check our her February favourites. She has included a ton of wonderful products.

I have found so many products that I have absolutely loved this month, so lets get in to it!

Make up

Dior Skin Forever Foundation

I have reached for this foundation pretty much everyday. It gives such a great coverage, has great staying power and doesn’t seem to go cakey which is something I struggle with when it comes to foundations. This foundation definitely gets my vote.

Soap and Glory – Archery

archery-brow-pencil

Now I am bit late to the party when it comes to brows. I only started plucking my brow in the last couple of years. I finally decided to go to a professional and have HD brows done. Probably one of the my best decisions ever. Since having my brows done I came across Soap and Glory’s Archery pencil which has a brow brush on one end and brow crayon which is very fine and not too heavy. Such a great colour match for my brows as well. (This image is not my own as all of the writing on mine has gone due to using the products so much)

Maybelline – Lash Sensational

I have been through a ton on mascara in my time and I actually think that this one is by far the best one I have ever used. Makes my lashes look full and long. The mascara never leaves little crumbs on under my eyes. It also separates my lashes like no other which is something I love in a mascara.

New Look – Pure Colour Baked Eye Shadow-  No 13 Cream

This was one of those products that I picked up in the queue waiting to buy clothes. I am so glad I did. The colours in it are a mixture of light gold, beige and cream its so shimmery & its got a marble effect running through the product which is beautiful to look at. It just makes my eyelids happy.

Seventeen Instant Glow – Pink Bronze – Shimmer Brick

I really love this product, its so affordable and does such a great job for how inexpensive it is. I apply this to the tops of my cheek bones and down my nose and it just leaves such a healthy highlight where you want it too.

Body Products

The Body Shop – Coconut Body Milk

Anything coconut scented I am a complete sucker for. This body milk smells incredible and feels amazing on my skin. It is also in a bottle which has a spray so its just less mess and nicer to use.

Elizabeth Arden – 8 Hour Hand Cream

1363365388-52215300

I picked this little guy up in TK Maxx. I know everyone raves about Elizabeth Arden 8 hour creams so I though I would give this hand cream a try as my hands have been really suffering this winter. I really love the texture of this products and I find that it sinks in to my skin really quickly. It doesn’t leave my hands feeling greasy at all.(This image is not my own as where I bought this item it has a sticker on it that I cannot get off)

Hair Care

Lee Stafford – Treatment For Hair That Never Grows Past A Certain Length

I have used this product for absolute yonks and I still swear by it. It literally just makes your hair grow. I am pretty sure that it is made with magic haha. I would definitely recommend this if you want your hair to grow or struggle with it growing.

Fragrance

Next – Velvet Bloom

This has definitely been my signature scent this month. I absolutely love it. It has tones of Orange Blossom, Vanilla and Sandalwood. It is a dupe for Tom Ford – Velvet Orchid which is a TON of money. So if you like the Tom Ford fragrance save yourself the pennies and purchase this one!

What products have you guys been loving this month? I would love to know in the comments.

Go over and check out Megan’s February favourites where she includes products she has been loving such as Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette , Kiehls Youth Regenerating Eye Balm and many more.
