January favourites

Here is a post to share and note a couple of natural beauty care, skin care and other kinds of favourites for the month of January πŸ•Š it is summer here in NZ (where I am from) and the weather has been so so warm and sunny, with a lot of blue skies 🌸 I have been being careful to wear a moisturiser and sunscreen with an SPF each day and I hope a couple of the favourites noted, including a very gentle moisturising cream by trilogy natural products, a natural face oil by L'Elu skin care and a rose quartz luminizer by KORA Organics, could be helpful for you too in case it is warm and sunny where you are 🌸 a couple more favourites include a nourishing turmeric latte recipe and open heart meditations I often do just before bed.

A couple of eco friendly tips

Here is a post to share a couple of eco friendly and green tips (or goals) from a quote found on Pinterest πŸ•Š the quote is noted to be made by hello nature blog, and includes 10 eco friendly and green tips (and goals) about how to make careful choices and be as eco friendly as possible in a simple and easy way, in day to day life 🌸 a couple of the tips noted include planting a tree (or two), using reusable shopping bags and buying second hand where possible, and I am hoping to do as many of the eco friendly and green tips (or goals) as possible, to help to look after the environment πŸ•Š I also studied environmental studies at Uni and often try to learn as much about being as eco friendly as possible, and be open to and listen to others' ideas, notes and tips.

A cookie recipe

Here is a post to share a recipe for cookies with chocolate m&ms I made just in December, with some m&ms my younger brother Chris gave me for Christmas πŸ•Š I found the full recipe for the cookies on a beautiful blog called tried and true, and the cookies came out as being so soft, a light gold colour and with a lot of colourful m&ms inside 🌸 please note, although the recipe is not plant based (I often try to post as many natural and plant based recipes as I can, which help to look after and support health and wellbeing) the cookies are so delicious and could be ok in moderation πŸ€— I hope the recipe could also be helpful in case you love cookies a lot too, or could be looking after or babysitting small children who could enjoy doing some baking.

Natural beauty care favourites of 2018

Here is a post to share and note a bit about a couple of natural beauty care and skin care favourites of 2018 πŸ•Š although I enjoyed trying a lot of different natural, organic and eco friendly beauty care and skin care products in 2018, I just chose 6 products I enjoyed a lot, use as often as possible and found to be gentle and helpful on my body and for sensitive skin 🌸 a couple of the favourites include a rose quartz luminizer and a rose quartz heart by KORA Organics, a very gentle restoring oil and a rosehip cleansing oil by Trilogy Products, organic maca powder and eco friendly body care by everkind. I hope noting the products could be helpful in case you could be hoping to try a couple of natural beauty care or skin care products too.

Hope you had a merry Christmas, and are enjoying a safe, happy and playful holidays πŸ•ŠπŸŒΈ here is a post to share and note a couple of natural beauty care, skin care and a couple of other favourite things for the month of December πŸ•Š a couple of the favourites include an organic coconut body lotion by mailelani samoa, an organic matcha latte recipe made with almond milk noted by the minimalist baker, a vanilla cupcake candle made by sweet treats and co, eco friendly body care by everkind and an album by Carla Bruni with kind and gentle songs, in both French and English.

Eco friendly body care by everkind

Everkind are a beautiful and award winning natural, organic and eco friendly body care brand who are based in NZ, and who make a couple of organic self care and body care products, including a couple of natural deodorants. The everkind brand is a kind combination of a love for nature, being careful toward the environment, kindness and self care, and everkind kindly posted an eco friendly deodorant to try. The deodorant is light pink, and called the ultra deodorant stick, and the deodorant stick is so beautiful, and is the most gentle, caring, helpful and effective deodorant I have used before.

A vanilla candle by sweet treats & co

Here is a post to share and note a bit about a beautiful candle from sweet treats & co, a candle and melts company who are based in NZ (where I am from) πŸ•Š sweet treats & co kindly offered to send a discount code for a candle or melt from the sweet treats & co online shop, and the candle I chose is called the Beauty and the Beast candle, and is noted to be inspired by the glass enclosed rose from the classic movie 🌸 the candle is so beautiful and looks so lovely in the glass holder, and you could also add the lid in the day time or when the candle is not being used πŸ•Š the scent I chose for the candle is called vanilla cupcake, and is so soft, creamy and light.

A gentle moisturising cream by trilogy

Here is a post to share and note a bit about a gentle moisturiser for sensitive skin, called the very gentle moisturising cream by trilogy natural products πŸ•Š the gentle moisturising cream comes carefully packaged in a light pink and white box, and I use the moisturising cream each day, both in the morning and just before bed 🌸 I made an order for a couple of natural rose and sensitive skin care products from trilogy natural products, including a gentle moisturiser, just a couple of weeks ago, as the moisturiser I had been using (a soothing day and night cream by KORA Organics) just ran out (a link to a post about the beautiful soothing day and night cream by KORA Organics is here)

A rosehip cleansing oil by trilogy

Here is a post about a gentle rosehip cleansing oil by trilogy natural products, a natural and eco friendly beauty care brand who are based in NZ (where I am from) πŸ•Š I bought a rosehip cleansing oil a couple of weeks ago with a couple of other natural rose and sensitive skin care products, and use the rosehip cleansing oil each day 🌸 the rosehip cleansing oil is one of the most gentle, beautiful and thorough cleansers I have used, and does an excellent job in carefully cleansing the skin, removing make up and helping skin to feel soft and looked after.

Coco mademoiselle by Chanel Paris

Here is a post to share and note a bit about the Coco mademoiselle (edp) fragrance, by Chanel Paris πŸ•Š the Coco mademoiselle fragrance belongs to my younger sister Bid, although it could be my favourite fragrance and if I could chose a fragrance by Chanel, I would choose the Coco mademoiselle 🌸 although the Coco mademoiselle fragrance is not a natural or eco friendly fragrance, it could be ok to wear a fragrance each day or couple of days if you would like to, and if it helps you to feel light, joyful and is kind and uplifting.
