6 Things I'm Thankful For | Lifestyle

Basically today I wanted to take some time to mention the things that I am thankful for, I spend so much time on social media that I don't notice the good things around me.

1. My Friends & Family : Without them I wouldn't be the person I am today!

2. My Boyfriend: I know he probably should go under the friends category but I think he deserves his own. He has been there for me through everything and I love him very much.

3. Sunshine: You might think I'm crazy but if I wake up to sunshine I am instantly happy all day.

4. Orange Juice: Another random thing that makes me smile.

5. Good Books: There is nothing better than getting completely lost in a good book that times just slips through your fingers.

6. YOU: I am so thankful for all of you who take time out of your day to read my posts, watch my videos, like my Instagram pictures and everything else.

What are you thankful for? 
List them below :)

Thank you for reading, 

Love,

Review | Lush Tea Tree Toner Water

Review | Lush Tea Tree Toner Water

Hello my loves,

I purchased this Lush Toner a couple of months ago as my skin was breaking out and I heard that tea tree is supposed to be good to prevent that and for zapping zits away!
Since this product is an astringnt toner I cannot use it daily as I have dry skin and astringnt are normally used for oily skin but I wanted to give it a shot to see if it would clear up my breakout.

I only apply it once a week or when I break out in certain areas. I have normally good skin so I usually only break out during hormonal times. I apply a spray onto a cotton pad and rub in circular motions over my face. I didn't particulary find that it zapped my spots but I did see a decrease in redness. Also my skin seems to have calmed down even during hormonal times.



With some toners that I have used I have felt it tightening on my skin but I don't find that happening with this product which I am surprised about. I find this makes my skin feel refreshed and I sometimes use a little spritz to refresh me.

As you can see by the bottle in the above picture, this product has gotten a lot of love from me and it will continue to! I will 100% repurchase this again. I'd recommend anyone with spot prone skin to give this a shot because it's definitely worth it!
It is priced around €10-11 and can be purchased from here or check of the shops in Dublin and Cork!

Review: Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub

Review: Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub


I've heard numerous people talk about how amazing this scrub was so of course I was intrigued and let me tell you I was not disappointed when I tried this.
It was instantly love at first try. My skin felt squeaky clean, super soft and smooth.
The smell is unbelievable, lemon, jasmine and orange flower, its fresh, citrus and just instantly boosts my mood.

I don't find the sea salt to be too abrasive but use ALWAYS use before shaving, the citrus it contains burn like hell, trust me I'm speaking from experience.




I would recommend this to anyone who love citrus fragrances. If you have dry skin and you're looking for a scrub that will exfoliate you without irritating, then this is the scrub for you.

This retails for €12-14 in Ireland, I know that's a little on the pricey side for a shower scrub but it's totally worth it in my opinion!

My Top 5 Soap & Glory Products

My Top 5 Soap & Glory Products
Evening loves,
Over the last year I have managed to collect numerous amounts of Soap & Glory products, these are the products I use quite regularly. What are your favorite Soap & Glory products? Here are mine:

1. Hand Food 
This has been my go to hand moisturizer for about two years now.  It has a perfume scent, the same scent as most Soap & Glory products which I just love but it might not be for everyone!
It is packaged in a cute, pink, convenient squeeze tube which is useful for just throwing in your bag.
It is priced at €7.99 and can be purchased here




2. The Righteous Body Butter
This has a similar scent to Hand Food yet it has a little fruity, girly scent to it. It is quite thick which I personally like in a body butter, it won't leave you feeling greasy though! t contains Shea butter and aloe Vera which will do wonders for your skin.
It is priced at €14.99 and can be purchased here.
