Favourite Items, June 2012

Yes to Cucumbers Body Lotion RRP £9.99
I hate the sticky, greasy feeling you can get after applying some body lotions, you know, when your jeans stick to your legs? Not the case with this one, it's light and non greasy thanks to glycerin, jojoba and safflower oils, smells fresh, not like a cucumber sandwich, and really hydrates. Love!

Jane Iredale Quad Bronzer in Rose Dawn, RRP £38 and Fan Brush RRP £8
From one of the mineral make up pioneers comes this fab bronzer with 4 shades, sweep one or more of these shimmery shades across cheeks for a glow, or use individually, depending on your tan. The light shades can be used as highlighters and the brown also makes a great eye shadow! For best results use with the Jane Iredale fan brush which picks up and delivers just the right amount of product so you won't end up looking like a clown. Hand tied from natural bristles, it's a fantastic brush, a real game changer. Click here for more details
Neal's Yard Rejuvenate Frankincense Facial Oil RRP £25 for 30ml
This is a new product from NYR, a gorgeous face oil (and we know how much I love those) that is ultra nourishing yet ultra light. It smells divine (thanks to Mandarin, Bergamot, Frankincense and Myrrh) and sinks in well, leaving barely anything behind, which is surprising given that it contains Macadamia, Baobab, Evening Primrose, Apricot Kernel, Castor and Hemp Seed oils. This makes it perfect for all skin types, but particularly for combi/oily who find most face oils a bit greasy. I've been using it at night as well as after face peels and it leaves your skin soft and plumped. Click here for more details
Iris Maxi Dress, People Tree £29 (reduced from £85)
This gorgeous maxi dress is made from hand block printed cotton, in an array of uplifting bright colours, goes with anything, one of my best purchases this spring! Click here for more details

Organic Surge Face Wash RRP £5
One of the nicest face washes I've used: cleanses well without stripping, smells lovely and at only £4.99 is a complete bargain. Contains Aloe Vera and Rose Geranium essential oil, feels like some I've used which cost £20! Click here for more details
Eau D'Elixir Perfumes, Fleurs de Bach RRP £35 for 55ml
Organic perfume? yes! Fleurs de Bach have created a line of 6 scents (2 eau de parfum and 4 eau de toilette) each made with organic grain alcohol, and a blend of essential oils and Bach Flower Essences. Each one is different, both in scent and effect, my personal favourite is Allegresse, which contains Verbena and Bergamot in a Woody base for scent, along with a Bach Flower combination to invigorate and energise.

Aden and Anais Muslin Washcloth, RRP £12.99 for 3
I do confess to having a slight obsession with muslin cloths, I use them to remove make-up and am always on the look out for bigger and better so, I give you Aden and Anais: designed for babies, these are larger than average, but, better still, they are 4 ply, yes, 4 ply, so not only are they lovely and thick, they retain heat for longer, essential for a deep cleanse. I admit they are not cheap, but worth every penny. Click here for more details
Easy Rider styling creme, Kevin Murphy RRP £14 for 110 grFrom celebrity hairdresser Kevin Murphy comes this brilliant styling cream, perfect for those with thick, frizzy hair, it provides soft hold without greasiness, oiliness or dreaded silicones. Is also water soluble (easy to rinse out) and paraben free. I love it! Click here for more details 
Shower Gel, Nourish Skincare RRP £9.95 for 250 ml
Gorgeously scented with organic essential oils of orange, mandarin and lemon, this shower gel also contains shea butter to gently cleanse your skin whilst leaving it lovely and soft. All Nourish products are free from sulfates, parabens, silicones and mineral oil. Click here for more details

  1. Hi

    I really like the people tree dress, but I cannot find pictures anywhere of what it is like on the back - sometimes these type of dress have elastic or a tie cord but I can find no info! Can you help?

    Thanks very much

  2. If you email me your email address I can send you a photo, I'm wearing it today! The hem that goes round your rib cage and under your breasts is slightly elasticated, there are no buttons, zips or ties. The should straps tie which is good as it makes them adjustable, the back of them kind of mirror the front, in the sense that they are triangular, hope this helps!
