Salt Of The Earth Roll-On Unscented Deodorant Review

Salt Of The Earth Roll-On Unscented Deodorant Review
I'm pleased to be reviewing the first Roll-On Natural Deodorant which has been added to Salt Of The Earths Range. Click here to be directed to Crystal Springs website to view the collection.
The Roll-On Deodorant is 100% natural and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It's also unisex, gives long lasting protection, is not tested on animals and does not stain clothes.
My first impression of this product is that it comes in a handy size which is perfect to use at home or when travelling. I love the roll on feature with it's smooth application on the skin and it delivers good even coverage.  My skin feels great, protected and moisturised.  
The roll on formula includes magnesium oil, natural mineral salts and organic aloe vera.
This product is another success for Crystal Spring.

Dolcino Bloggers Event

February 18, 2018 0
Dolcino Bloggers Event
On Friday 16th February at 7pm I was invited to Dolcino which is independent gelateria-cafe located in the heart of Nottingham city centre.
Local bloggers were invited to sample some of the wide variety of gelato and desserts which are on offer. I can confirm that the food tastes great and it's set at a fair price. I'm already looking forward to my next visit.
I think a strong selling point of Dolcino is that it caters to all dietary requirements such as gluten free, vegetarian and vegan. All you have to do is ask and they will customise your order.
The interior of Dolcino is retro and funky with strong teal green theme. I thought the bike on the walls added a personal and quirky touch. 
Shortly after bloggers were greeted with friendly smiles and a glass of bubbly from the staff. Francesco Arcadio (manager and founder) gave us a talk about how the family business began and his passion for making gelato.
A small group of us were shown a tour of the kitchen and how gelato is made in the cafe. We learnt how to make a amaretto, caramel syrup and Twix gelato. It was fascinating to learn the process and see how the gelato making machine works. We got to smell the industrial size tubs of amaretto and caramel syrup (which made my mouth water). I had recently shared with you on my birthday gift haul video (click here to watch) that amaretto is one of my favourite flavours and alcoholic drinks.
I had also sampled a mini unicorn sundae and blueberry waffle dessert. They both tasted delicious.
There are so many flavours of gelato to try. If you pop in for a visit then please let me know your favourite flavour in the comments below

January Favourites

February 17, 2018 2
January Favourites
Hi everyone.
Welcome to my January Favourites. All make up products mentioned are cruelty free :)
Aquarius Horoscope Book
I've always been fascinated with astrology and what my horoscope birth chart indicates about my personality, relationships and career. I find it spookily accurate and I love to learn about how I can use the planetary energies to add to my strengths.
For Christmas I got gifted a Aquarius 2018 horoscope book which lets you know what's in store for the year. Everyday has a little paragraph of what to expect for that day. I really enjoy reading the book as part of my daily routine.
Gosh X-Ceptional Wear Foundation
Gosh X-Ceptional Wear is my favourite foundation it's a staple in my make up collection. This is because the shade "Porcelain" matches my skin tone perfectly. The coverage is buildable and it hides blemishes well. The liquid formula feels light on the skin and a little application goes along way. £7.99 is a good price which makes me come back to it every time.
Elf Lock Eye Primer
The eyeshadows that I like to wear are pigmented and glittery. Because my eyelids are naturally oily this causes the eyeshadow to crease and eventually slip off. I have to use a eyeshadow primer to keep everything in place. In the month of January I was browsing for a eyelid primer which was budget friendly, cruelty free and long lasting. I found one at Superdrug priced £3, which was the Elf Lock Eyelid Primer in the shade Sheen.
To achieve maximum results for long lasting eyeshadow it's best to apply the primer with the application wand provided. Then apply the eyeshadow straight away when the primer is wet.
Soap And Glory Thick & Fast Mascara
Soap and Glory's Thick & Fast Mascara is another staple in my make up collection because it makes the lashes longer and gives more volume. The formula lasts throughout out the day and I've never had any smudging with this mascara. The applicator wand has a variety of sizes of bristles to capture and cover the lashes beautifully.
Whittard Chelsea Blueberry Cheesecake Hot Chocolate
I find great comfort in curling up in bed with a nice cup of warm hot chocolate especially when the weather outside is cold and miserable. I was gifted from a friend for my birthday Whittard Chelsea Blueberry Cheesecake hot chocolate. I love everything about this product from the luxurious packaging to the flavour (it tastes sweet and delicious). I love how it turns the milk purple when you add the hot chocolate in. You can also make it with water which doesn't make it so calorific.
So there are my January favourites which I would recommend to you. Have you tried any of these products? let me know in the comments below.
