With Mothers Day just around the corner (10 days in fact!) Olive and I have put together a Mothers Day gift guide featuring some of are favourite and inspirational brands who create some really lovely sustainable and ethical products. From beautiful natural skincare by Evolve Beauty to gorgeous handcrafted home accessories at Nkuku there really is something for every Mum to enjoy.
Burts Bees have recently launched a natural beauty range that includes a full line of make up products that make you feel your beautiful best because of how they are made, not in spite of it. Blanch and I have long been big fans of natural make up and couldn’t wait to get our hands of these lovely products.
Olive and I cannot begin to tell you how obsessed we are with a skincare brand called Tropics at the moment. First introduced to us by a good friend and incidentally a Tropics Skin Care Ambassador (check out her fab Instagram page here) we very quickly became hooked on their amazing skincare products.
We love the fact that all of Tropics skincare and beauty products are always 100% natural, vegan and cruelty free. Even better Tropics only use pure ingredients in their products that are free from harmful toxic chemicals and always include a ‘best before’ date ensuring you are always applying the freshest ingredients to your skin.
As the clocks go back and our days get cooler it can be tricky looking after our skin and hair during the dark winter months. The arrival of colder days means cosy jumpers, woolly hats and endless amounts of tea however it can also mean dry, flakey skin from that bitter winter wind especially when strolling across the beaches of Devon.
Taking a bath is up there as one of my favourite past times, there is something just so relaxing about stepping into the warm, soapy water with a mug of tea (or wine!) in one hand and a good book in the other. I find my stresses and concerns from the day just seem to drift away as I sink into the tub.
Recently Olive and I came across the The Recycled Candle Company a company that creates the most beautiful smelling candles that have been made from already used candle wax. In todays disposable world its so nice to see an independent business create such lovely products from materials that already exist.
