5 Awesome Things You Will Love About Garnier Miracle Sleeping Cream

garnier miracle sleeping cream

I’ve been a big fan of sleeping masks waaaay before they were the “in” thing.  In fact, one of my first few blog posts { with terrrrible photos and terrrible writing – thankfully I’ve improved since then! } was reviewing that Korean sleeping mask which started it all.

Garnier recently launched their version called the Miracle Sleeping Cream which you can use like a night cream.  I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and it’s a winner.  Here are 5 awesome things that you { & I already do! } will love about it :-

Tried & Tested Trio : Argan Oil Based Beauty Products

argan oil based beauty products

Firstly, thanks for all the supportive messages (comments, emails, etc) from my previous post!!!  I’m slowly but surely back on the blogging bandwagon (I even blogged about sausages on my lifestyle blog LOL!)

Anyway, let’s get on to today’s post…

An influx of beauty products recently landed on my desk and I noticed a popular trend – ARGAN OIL.  Makes a change from moroccan oil / coconut oil / rosehip oil.  I decided to pluck out 3 (yes, there were more!) of these argan oil based products and tell you a bit more about them.

Life Lately

bobbi brown newest collection

Life has been pretty full-on lately with a lot of “things” and I haven’t exactly been in my usual happy place because of these “things” hence the lack of blog posts { and lack of email replies / reader requests posts / all that jazz }.  Sorrreeeee!!!!

Apart from the “things”, I’m not gonna lie but it’s hard doing this blogging gig because I work 5 days a week in a physically demanding job and I’m a full-time wife and momma to a highly energetic toddler { with a recent visit to A&E!!! #anotherstoryforanotherday }!  Plus I have a highly committed relationship with Netflix!

Anyway, I’m in the process of training my beauty blogging minion protege, Bunty Boo, to take over but she’s still learning the ropes.  We’ll get there!  One day!

Amongst all the busyness, I have attended some bloggie events, trialled some awesome new beauty products, painted my nails, got my hair did and other beauty stuff so stay tuned for future blog posts 🙂

Thanks for reading, as always, even though I am not a consistent beauty blogger! x

P.S.  Photo features the soon-to-be-released Bobbi Brown Limited Edition Telluride Collection.  Deets soon!

Skincare Review : L’Occitane Aromachologie Revitalizing Body Scrub

L'Occitane Aromachologie Revitalizing Body Scrub.

One of the things I missed the most when I had a newborn bubba was a LONG HOT SHOWER.  Emphasis on the “long”.  Because it just was not possible.  I’m sure all mothers reading this will be nodding their heads in agreement.

It’s only been recently that I’ve had a bit more time to enjoy my showers.  And thankfully, I’ve been enjoying it even more with the help of  L’Occitane Aromachologie Revitalizing Body Scrub.

Physicians Formula Powder Palette Multi-Coloured Custom Blush For Blondes & Brunettes

A few weeks ago, Physicians Formula kindly sent me a huge care package (thanks so much!!) – it was like Christmas – and I ooh’ed and aah’ed over everything before deciding that the first product I would review would be the Powder Palette Multi-Coloured Custom Blush.  Well, technically, blush-es because there are 2 in the range – catered to complement your hair colour – for Blondes and Brunettes.

How interesting right??  Let’s take a closer look at them…
