A raspberry and blueberry smoothie

Here is a second recipe for a healthy smoothie, made with raspberries and blueberries 🕊🌸 I just made the smoothie on Sunday, and added a couple of ingredients we had at home I enjoy a lot and are quite healthy. The smoothie recipe is quite simple and easy to make and you could hopefully find the ingredients for the smoothie in your garden or at your local shop too. The ingredients included in the smoothie include banana, raspberries, blueberries, almond milk, Greek yogurt, ground almonds and chia seeds. I enjoy making the smoothie both in the morning for breakfast, or for morning or afternoon tea as it is quite healthy and filling with the banana and the Greek yogurt.

Organic coconut oil

I use an organic coconut oil (by Blue Coconut) from our local supermarket often on my skin and face, both in the morning just after cleansing my skin and in the evening, just after having a shower 🕊🌸 Organic coconut oil feels so soft and nourishing to use on the skin and helps my skin to feel moisturised and smooth. I sometimes use a small amount of organic coconut oil on the tips of my hair too, to help to moisturise and nourish my hair and organic coconut oil could also be used as a lip conditioner, to help to soothe sun burn, or to help to remove make up (including eye make up).

June favourites

Here are a couple of natural beauty, skin care and life favourites from the month of June. The natural beauty and skin care favourites I chose include the beautiful rose quartz luminizer from KORA Organics, the balancing rose mist from KORA Organics and the organic coconut body lotion from Mailelani Samoa. A couple more favourites I chose include the treasure yourself cards by Miranda Kerr, a chocolate brownie recipe from a recipe book we have at home and a light pink silk top I bought from Trenery 🕊🌸

Oats with almond milk and raspberries

Here is a recipe for oats with almond milk I often make in the morning for breakfast in the autumn and winter, when the weather is a bit cooler, or for lunch, as the oats feel so warming and nourishing to eat on a cold day. The recipe has just a couple of ingredients (including oats, almond milk, maple syrup or honey, cinnamon, almonds and raspberries) you could hopefully find in your garden or at your local shop and the recipe is quite easy and quick to make in case you don't have a lot of time in the morning 🕊🌸

KORA Organics cream cleanser

I just bought a couple of cream cleansers from beautiful KORA Organics by Miranda Kerr to try, as I had not tried the cleansers before and had just run out of a cleanser at home 🕊🌸 the cream cleansers come in beautiful light blue, green packaging with a white lid, which has a rose gold rim. The cleansers are also noted to be suitable for suitable for dry skin, and although my skin is quite sensitive the cream cleanser feels so lovely to use in the winter as the weather is a bit cooler and can be a bit drying on the skin.

A couple of favourite art works

Here is a post about a couple of my favourite art works (including a couple of paintings and a monument). I studied environmental studies at University, although I also studied art history at high school and it is one of my favourite subjects. I enjoy learning about different artists and the culture from where artists are from and how they are inspired to create paintings and sculptures. The paintings I chose include the Water Lilies series by Claude Monet, a French Impressionist painter, and the Kiss by Gustav Klimt, an Austrian painter from Vienna, of la belle époque. The monument I chose is called the Winged Victory of Samothrace from the Louvre in Paris and the monument is noted to be from about 190 to 180 BC and to be made of Parian marble🕊🌸

Balancing rose mist from KORA Organics

I made an order for a couple of products to try from KORA Organics a couple of days ago, and the parcel just came yesterday. The products I bought to try include a face mist called the Balancing rose mist and a face mask called the Clay purifying mask (a blog post about the beautiful face mask coming soon). The Balancing rose mist is so beautiful, has a light and delicate floral scent and feels light, nourishing and so refreshing to use 🕊🌸
