“Let’s Avocuddle!!” Happy Mother’s Day to all you mamas out there (we celebrated back in March here in the UK) but we wanted to share the love and celebrate again with you all!
Willow is modelling this seriously cute tee from the vegan run brand, Happy Hooves! The tee is really good quality and made from 100% cotton. It’s age 2-4 so plenty of growing room for Willow. Absolutely love this design and the quirky slogan! I’ve also got my eye on a Harry Potter inspired hoody (you’ve gotta check it out!) and their Happy Hooves mug. For all you makeup addicts out there, there’s even a design for you guys! Happy Hooves is regularly coming up with new designs so keep your eye for them. I can’t wait to see what else they come up with. If you pop on over to their site and see something you like, I have a 20% off promo code for you guys so feel free to use it (valid until 11.59pm on 19th May) : JPXV0S2C9ZC5.
I hope you’re all having a wonderful day and that you mummies are up to something really special!
Hey guys and gals! I cannot tell you how happy I am that these have arrived! My skin is crying out for help. It did not like my Body Shop face wash at all. It made my face sore and spotty and gave me dry patches so fingers crossed Angels on Bare Skin will soothe it and make it feel much better. As well as using Celestial moisturiser on my face, I’m going to use it on my hands. They are so awful atm and my palms are so itchy and sore! I made sure I went for a product that has mostly natural ingredients and NO perfume because my skin is quite sensitive and I have dermatitis/eczema so a lot of things can set it off.
The other day I thought I’d have a play around with some new makeup that I’d received over the Christmas period. I don’t really get much chance nowadays but thought I’d grab a spare moment whilst Willow had her nap.
All products are cruelty free and some are also vegan which I’ve put in brackets next to the products.
💜 Primer: Illuminate and Glow correcting primer by Pür Cosmetics (vegan)
💜 Foundation: Matte Clay Skin Clarifying foundation by The Body Shop (vegan)
💜 Eyeshadow: Shade and Light Contour Quad eyeshadow palette in Rust Kat Von D (vegan)
Style Eye-Con No. 7 Eyeshadow palette in Starlet using the rose gold metallic shade by Marc Jacobs
💜 Mascara: Beyond Limitations mascara in Jet Black by Saturated Colour
💜 Lipstick: Powerful Color Natural Lipstick in the shade Tender Heart by Pacifica (vegan)
💜 Setting Spray: Glowsetter setting spray by Glamglow
I am absolutely bowled over with the eyeshadow palettes! I am no longer a KVD or MJ virgin! The KVD palette is so buttery and soft and the MJ palette is gorgeously pigmented. What I will say about the style eye-con palette is that there is better colour pay-off when you apply with your finger! It is such a gorgeous metallic rose gold shade that I just know I’ll be reaching for all the time. Can’t wait to try out the other shades in the palette though!
The Pacifica lippy is such a pretty shade and is quite longwearing too! I think it may have converted me back to using lipsticks again rather than liquid lippy! I also love that the brand focuses on natural ingredients! This is another brand I’ve not tried before and as well as the eyeshadow palettes named above, I received it in my Christmas swap box that I spoke of in my blog post here. Check it out to find out what else was inside! I would love to try more of their products and hope they ship to the UK!
Have you used any of the products? What do you think to them? Let me know in the comments below.
I would just like to add, that I discovered Glamglow is NOT entirely cruelty-free as they test on animals when required by law (normally this means that they’re trading in mainland China). I actually feel quite disappointed by this considering how the brand started out. 🙁
