Weekend Friday Favourites

I hope you’re having a fun weekend. After over a week of grey skies, storm winds and a few rainy days this weekend been cloudy sunny. There’s always a big storm that changes the season so I’m hoping the temps start to get more spring like next week. It’s climate change and pay back for a sunny mild winter.

A short and sweet Weekend Friday Favourites this week. Things that have made me smile or caught my eye recently. 

Cristalljoia. AKA The Crystal Shop

I have to ban myself or limit trips to Cristalljoia a small crystal shop near El Borne as I’m always coming back with tumble stones. I discovered it’s previous location a few years ago and it’s a great place to get crystal cheaper than online. Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

Smart Shopping

We’ve all been there. Not shopped for a few days only to come back with items you’re left thinking why from impulse buys. Or got swayed by pretty packaging, offers or an online shopping basket where you can’t physically see the items to think about pennies, only to again to be asking why when you got back or excitedly opening the parcel.

 

Today I’m sharing tips I use to try to keep pennies in the bank account, stop unwanted items left unused then donated or thrown out. Try as I have my moments where all sanity left my brain. I know just don’t shop. It’s nice to look at things! 

Ask yourself what mood you’re in. Have you not shopped for a few days, weeks and it’s I must satisfy spending need day? Is it a feel better buy? A quick fix purchase? The times I get caught up in this, 9 times out of 10 I’ve Continue reading “Smart Shopping”

Beauty Finds. Skincare Empties

This edition of Beauty Finds features oil cleansers, a toner and a sheet mask. As usual all products are cruelty free! It’s also the edition where I learnt a lesson reading ingredient lists.

When it comes to Beauty Finds I have a few requirements. Cruelty free, contain no animal ingredients (honey I’m okay with. I’m a bad vegan I eat honey but draw the line at bee venom, snail slime), contain no petroleum derived ingredients if I can help it. I’m okay with maybe 4th or 5th generation derived. This also covers silcone, PEGS. I also try to avoid SLS, parabens and other nasties if I can. With skincare it’s little easier to find more natural ingredients however make up I usually have Continue reading “Beauty Finds. Skincare Empties”

Earth Day 2019

Happy Earth Day!

Protect Our Species is this year’s Earth Day theme. Everything in nature’s balanced and linked. I don’t have to tell you us humans have altered the balance and links causing climate change.

Bees, giraffes, great apes, coral reefs, whales, insects, elephants, sharks are just a few of the thousand of trees, plants, birds, animals, fish, crustaceans that could be wiped out this century due to climate change. No bees or insects to pollinate plants, no food for everyone. Bee’s are amazing insects. They dance to tell the hive Continue reading “Earth Day 2019”

Weekend Friday Favourites

I hope you’re having a great weekend! Here’s been quiet which is fine with me. I get to hang out with this little guy. Who sleeps most of the time and is currently sleeping on my lap helping me edit.

I can’t believe that Tone It Up’s Summer Series starts in a week. Or that they’re celebrating 10 years. Makes you think what you’ve done while they’ve been conquering the fitness world. Anyway, this weeks Weekend Friday Favourites. Things that have made me smile or caught my eye recently. As usual, animals included. Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”
