November December 2017 Beauty Finds

Beauty Finds is back!

These are a few finds from way back in November and December last year. Some products you know what will work or not work straight away, others takes a few weeks. As our skin renews itself every month I like to give most products a chance to see if they work.

I have a few requirements with beauty finds. No animal testing and no animal ingredients apart from honey as I’m a bad vegan and eat it. Bee venom, royal jelly, snails slime, shark squalane, lanolin, no. No crap ingredients like SLS, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil aka petroleum Continue reading “November December 2017 Beauty Finds”

Weekend Friday Favourites

Nothing all week then, 2 posts in 1 day. Let’s just say someone made time to do something else she loves other than working out and sorting out that pile of books that’s been building up. 

I hope you’re having a great weekend! Once again I’m left on a Sunday wondering where the week went. It went by with its usual workouts, runs, cleaning up after the cats (do all male species miss aim peeing?), catching up with friends and working on a better routine. I’ve identified where non productive time goes vs chores, Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

What’s Happening To Me?!

I’m not sure what’s happened. A leopard never changes its spots, right?

I always thought by not dying my hair I got out of hair treatments and expensive trips to the hairdressers. I mean no damaging bleach or other chemicals got me a free ticket to good hair. I found myself sitting in the hairdresser’s chair this week laughing at my self wondering what’s happened to me. Back in my 20’s you’d never have found me in trainers, duvet/puffer coats, wearing less make up than I wear now, using cotton toe as a handbag, having higher maintenance hair or even long healthy looking hair.

Now I wear trainers. This is thanks to being told after nearly tearing my Achilles I can’t wear heels or plimsoles anymore not that I was wearing heels back then. I wore slip on or lace up plimsoles. Only low heels or trainers were allowed as they were kinder to feet. Trainers were in the rehab stage Continue reading “What’s Happening To Me?!”

Weekend Friday Favourites

This week’s been a little slow paced and yet all over the place. A nearly 2 hour visit to a new dental hygienist, being shown how to brush my teeth properly, a routine all over the place, watching the Cabalgata de los Reyos Magos/Kings Parade and weather like Spring. A few days of sunny 20C sandwiched in-between days of cold and wind that’s been non stop for over a week. Hello January!

Anyways, more importantly, the first Weekend Friday Favourites of 2018! Things that have caught my eye or made me smile this week or 2 as I missed last weeks. Feel free to Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

Healthier, Stronger, Longer Nails, Hair and Eyelashes Naturally!

Today I’m sharing with you my recently discovered inexpensive, natural not so secret trick to longer stronger hair, nails and eyelashes naturally! No Lilash, castor oil or other lash enhancers required! 

I’m sure many of you have heard or know about brewer’s yeast. It’s main use is for healthy skin, hair and nails. My Mum’s been taking them for years I think to help with thyroid issues. Doggy Ben my parents last dog, bless him, used to have a tablet a day. Continue reading “Healthier, Stronger, Longer Nails, Hair and Eyelashes Naturally!”
