Every year at around late March/April, everyone and everything takes on a green tint as what used to be Earth Day now stretches into Earth Month, and everyone takes on an “I’m greener than you” persona icon razz Empties for Origins samples and Earth Month awareness with Estee Lauder Group of Companies

Cynical? I’m afraid so. I do my bit but I prefer to not talk about it because I don’t agree with everything out there and what I do believe in would likely draw the ire of most, so I prefer to hunker down, and quietly do my bit for the planet without shouting about it and being deemed a hypocrite.

But I thought a free sample of Origins products in exchange for something you’d throw away anyway, was something to mention icon biggrin Empties for Origins samples and Earth Month awareness with Estee Lauder Group of Companies (Terms updated below)

Hola bloggers! icon biggrin Simple Blogging Tips: Busting 5 myths about beauty blogging

I’ve gotten a few emails recently about setting up a beauty blog or how to start one (I’ve given you the headstart here if you missed it) but I’ve also gotten some queries about what one must do, or mustn’t do when it comes to blogging or blogging about beauty. Really, there are no rules, so if you want to blog about beauty or already do, just do what makes you comfortable!

A few months … actually, many months ago, I was introduced to English organic brand, Neal’s Yard Remedies. The previous post has a little more about my introduction to the brand so I’m not going to repeat it here. I do however, want to share 1 product I’ve tried from the brand that I really enjoyed using, and I wanted to quickly talk about it because I just realised I’m a little more than halfway through a bottle already!

It’s the Neal’s Yard Remedies Rejuvenating Frankincense Facial Oil and my skin loves this stuff!

Facial oils aren’t something everyone will like, I’ll concede, but I love them when they work which isn’t always. The great thing about facial oils for me, is that they really do help balance out my skin when it’s gone off kilter. With some, I use them as a serum, where I layer a moisturiser over to seal in the oil, sometimes I mix a couple of drops of oil into my moisturiser to give it more slip but with this Frankincense Facial Oil, I could do one more thing – I could use it alone as moisturiser!

Being a voyeur, I love seeing what people fit into their handbags. This is especially true of smaller bags. Not being one for a small bag myself, I am always curious to know how people manage to carry their daily essentials in a tiny little bag. Me? I used to lug around gigantic sacks, filled to the brim with everything, including the kitchen sink.

Recently, thanks to a poorly back and shoulders, I’ve cut back. So over the weekend, as I finally got round to switching things out of my regular daily handbag to another one, it struck me that I’d never done a “What’s in my bag?” post.

So basically, I go around perving at what other people stuff in their bags but haven’t shared what I put in mine. Well, let’s remedy that shall we? icon biggrin Whats in my bag? (The raw, unedited version)

The bag du jour for the past 6 months (gasp! Not getting my cost per wear for the rest I own!) is a black leather Gucci Vintage Web Boston Bag which I lusted over last year. It’s just plain black leather with subtle Gucci Guccisima embossed strips down the middle of the bag and on the detachable strap. Part of the reason I’d been loathe to switch out of the one, is just how practical this bag is.
