Arbonne Skin Care | Initial thoughts and Reviews

‘Arbonne develops world-class products with botanicals and cutting-edge science.’ Maimie Yelland, an Arbonne consultant contacted me and asked if I could try their skincare range. I was initially sceptical for two reasons. I am a creature of habit, I don’t like trying new things. Yes, I am that person who orders the same meal all the time, if I like it. Choosing something different is a tough decision for me. I didn’t want to put some unknown cream on my face and wake up to a irritated face full of rashes. Also, I know that once bloggers…

Natural Hair | 4 Recommended Products

I am not criticising people who do love talking about natural hair, ‘pre-poos’, ‘co-washing’, ‘tex-laxing’ and other things that I may have missed. If you love talking…

I remember this stage in my life well, I had skin that produced more oil than a water fountain, and severe acne. It really affected my self esteem. Seeing people with smooth skin and wishing that my skin would just behave for once! I didn’t know what to use for my skin, and just used cocoa butter or Vaseline to cream my face….yup I was that clueless! Now things have changed and more information is out there, people are more open in their skin struggles. However, one thing I have noticed is that we can neglect…

‘Different Stages, Different Needs’ Series | Skincare tips for Pregnancy

Ahhhhh pregnancy. Pregnancy can be such a different experience for women. Some women love being pregnant, they glow, they float, they barely gain a pound. Other women like me….lets just say we see pregnancy as a necessary means to an beautiful end. Just get through these nine…sorry ten months with gritted teeth! That awkward stage where people are unsure if you bloated or pregnant stage, and that incredibly hormonal stage where you just cry at everything. But all in all pregnancy is a blessing and a wonderful experience. During pregnancy your skin changes, due to…
