I pre-ordered a copy of Dr Libby's new book called the Beauty Guide a couple of weeks ago, and a parcel with the book just came in the post. As noted in the book, Dr Libby is an internationally acclaimed nutritional biochemist, author and speaker who holds a Bachelor of Health Science (nutrition and dietetics) with Honours and a PhD in Biochemistry, and has twenty years of clinical experience. I bought a copy of another book by Dr Libby called Beauty from the Inside Out, which was published a couple of years ago, and enjoyed reading the book a lot. Dr Libby's new book the Beauty Guide is also so beautiful and so lovely to read and shares a lot of generous and lovingly written information, beauty care tips and solutions about how to look after yourself and to uplift the way you see and feel about yourself as best you can 🕊🌸
I have been using a natural hair conditioner by Earthwise, a natural and eco friendly brand who are based in New Zealand, and who make gentle and natural body care and cleaning products. The conditioner is called the Nourish Revitalise natural Conditioner and comes in a white package, and I enjoy using the conditioner a lot. I have also tried a couple more of the shampoos, conditioners and soaps by Earthwise too, and we often buy Earthwise cleaning products to use at home as they are gentle, natural and safe, and help to care for the environment 🕊🌸
I bought a Cherry Blossom fragrance from L'Occitane en Provence in 2017, and was kindly gifted a couple of natural skin care samples from L'Occitane to try. The natural skin care products are included in the samples include the Amande concentre de lait (milk concentrate) and the Creme ultra riche (ultra rich cream) and the samples are generous and in a beautiful packet with illustrations. I had not tried the natural skin care products before, and enjoy and appreciate using the samples a lot 🕊🌸 L'Occitane is a lovely natural beauty, skin care and body care brand with products made in France, and I am hoping to try a couple more products from L'Occitane soon to include in a couple more blog posts 🌸
I just bought a Very Gentle Restoring Oil from Trilogy Products, a lovely natural, organic and eco friendly skin care brand who are based in New Zealand, and a couple of trilogy samples were included in the parcel (thank you Trilogy Products) 🕊🌸 the skin care products included in the samples include the Balancing Face Lotion and the Rosapene Night Cream, and both of the products are noted to be made with rosapene. I had not tried the skin care products before, and really enjoyed trying the face lotion and cream.
Here is a recipe for chocolate chip cookies, from a lovely cook, food writer and publisher from New Zealand, called Annabel Langbein. Annabel Langbein has a lot of baking and cooking books published with lots of beautiful photos, and her recipes are always so lovely and reliable and are often made with fresh ingredients. I opened a tin of condensed milk a couple of days ago and was a bit worried about how we could use the condensed milk, though I thought of baking chocolate chip cookies, as we also have some dark chocolate at home. I am hoping to bake the chocolate chip cookies today and the cookies would be so lovely to have for morning or afternoon tea or with a cup of coffee or tea in case you feel like something sweet 🕊🍪
I bought a very gentle restoring oil from Trilogy Products, a lovely natural and eco friendly skin care brand who are based in New Zealand (where I am from), a couple of days ago. The parcel with the face oil just came today, and also included a couple of beautiful skin care samples from Trilogy Products (a blog post coming soon) and a soft red lipstick from Karen Murrell lipsticks, as a gift with the order. Karen Murrell are a lovely natural lipstick brand with a lot of colourful pink, red and coral lipstick shades, who are also based in New Zealand (thank you Karen Murrell) 🕊🌸
