February Playlist

February Playlist
Here // Alessia Cara
Basically the perfect song for introverts and anti-party people, probably why I like it so much. I have never heard any of her other music but I think this is the song that got her noticed. It samples the same beat as Portishead Glory Box which is one of my favourite songs and basically is all about her hating parties. I actually really like listening to the lyrics, it is all about being some place because your friends are, but you really hate being there and would prefer to be sat in the corner being anti social. I think it speaks to a lot of people but I genuinely think it is a great song. 
Secret Love Song // Little Mix
Just reading the title of this song in person it wouldn't be something I was keen to listen too. But I was in the car one day listening to the radio and this came on, I knew I recognised the voices but couldn't work out straight away who it was. I think it is great that we have a British UK girl band but usually there music is not something I immediately listen to. However I find this song really catchy and find myself singing it out loud an awful lot.

My Top 8 Leonardo DiCaprio Films

My Top 8 Leonardo DiCaprio Films
I've always had a little soft spot for Leonardo DiCaprio, but it was only when I got older that I appreciated not only his good looks but his great acting. As the Oscars are happening this weekend and Leonardo being up for the Best Male award (hopefully he will finally win an Oscar) I thought I would do a little fun post about my favourite films of his.

Dr Organic Aloe Vera Concentrated Cream

Dr Organic Aloe Vera Concentrated Cream

One of my newest favourite ingredients in skincare is Aloe Vera, I have fallen in love with the scent and find it really refreshing. Like many people in the colder months I use a lot of moisturiser and I sometimes find it really difficult to find one that can keep my skin hydrated throughout the day and especially under make up. I picked up this Aloe Vera Concentrated Cream from the Dr Organic Range recently and here are my thoughts on it.

What I Eat In A Day #1 (Vegan)

What I Eat In A Day Vegan

I love all sorts of food posts, but one that I really enjoy reading are the What I Eat In A Day posts. I guess I am secretly nosy and find it interesting to see what other people eat. I don't have a YouTube channel so I can't make a fancy video showing you, but I can type it up for you to read. So if you are interested in what I eat on a vegan/plant based diet then here we go.

Crazy Rumors Raspberry Sherbet Lip Balm

Crazy Rumors Raspberry Sherbet Lip Balm

Wherever I go I will take a lip balm with me, especially in the colder months because my lips just cannot hack it. I'm definitely a lip balm girl over a pretty lipstick, usually because they are a lot easier to apply but also due to there helpful qualities. Personally I was getting a little tired of using lip balms that required me to apply them from the pot, and trust me I only felt like that when I was outside with gloves on and had to keep taking them off whenever I needed to reapply. So I began the hunt to look for an easy lip balm to use that required no fingers but also moisturised. Here are my thoughts on the Crazy Rumors Raspberry Sherbet Lip Balm.

Easy Baked Bananas

Easy Baked Bananas

Making quick and speedy meals is very important to me, especially if I just want to come home and not be spending hours in the kitchen making something from scratch. Whilst savoury meals are the first priority, desserts are also the perfect way to end a meal. Now I first started making these baked bananas when I was at university when my cooking skills were pretty non existent. I would make these now and again as an easy dessert to satisfy my sweet tooth. Whether you are making this for yourself or for others I promise you it really is easy to make and takes 10 minutes to create.

Lavender Oil: My Experience Using It

Lavender Oil

Ever since I switched to cruelty free make up and skincare I have been really interested in using natural ingredients in products. Essential Oils are something that I had heard of many times but I usually just assumed they were more for aromatherapy and massage. But because of their 100% naturalness they provide so many benefits and I was eager to see if they were that great, so I picked up a teeny tiny bottle of Lavender Oil to start with. Here are my thoughts on the oil and how I used it.

10 Foods I Love To Snack On

10 Foods I Love To Snack On

Long gone are the days where I snack on crisps or chocolate bars if I am feeling hungry, I find myself feeling a lot more energised and awake if I eat more healthier snacks. One of my biggest mistakes was to snack throughout the day because it meant at meal times I would not feel very hungry, but if you eat the right things then you can make your stomach satisfied and still eat as much as you want at dinnertime. Here are my favourite top 10 snacks.

Essence Lash Princess False Effect Mascara

Essence Lash Princess False Effect Mascara

Essence is a brand that I had never acknowledged before and I had passed by so often on my visits to Wilkinson to buy bird food or homeware bits. They usually have a small selection of makeup brands on stands and one day after hearing good things about Essence I had a good look at there products. Despite being slightly dazzled by how many different products they had, including an amazing range of nail varnish, I noticed the mascara section. After trying to find a cruelty free mascara for a long time that I liked, I figured down to the affordable price that I would give this one a go. Here are my thoughts on the mascara.

Banana Smoothie To Help You Sleep

Banana Smoothie To Help You Sleep

On the occasions that I know I really need to get some sleep to be feeling energised the next day, I tend to drift to making a hot cup of specialised tea that helps you sleep. But if you are not in the mood for a hot drink or simply do not like them, then this banana smoothie helps really well with making you feel sleepy.
