Morning Skincare Routine

I realised lately that I have never done a Morning Skincare Routine post. I know, where have I been? I can ensure you I've been around but definitely not on the trend wagon that's for sure ("please can someone wake up Marie on the back sit please?"). But lately I am definitely feeling that wagon and mostly the love that I have found again with my skincare routine. Skincare is my thing, although I love make up and I would never have enough lipsticks (despite my partner saying otherwise), I just really can't live without smothering my face with nice smelly lotions and potions! 
So what has been on my morning routine lately:

Soaper Duper | Review

Soaper Duper is the new kid on the block, the little one that I feel will soon be on the trendy wagon BUT here to stay.
It perhaps doesn't look like much but when you know their products are supporting the Water Aid & Clean The World foundations and that it is made without plastic microbeads, parabens, colourants, sls/sles or any of the other usual suspects you'll then know that whatever is in those bottles is good stuff for you and the planet.

So you want to start a blog | Part 2

This is my part 2 on my little series: 'So you want to start a blog'. On my first part that you can find here, I talked about finding the right platform for your blog, choosing a blog name, design and writing posts. Overall it was the blogging starting point a bit like if you were packing, getting your passport & flight ticket ready for a trip abroad if you like. But if you still new and you have now your brand new blog for few weeks in this fantastic world of blogging, or just curious to know more perhaps there is few bits and bobs that you should know and in my opinion follow. hence again I would just address that I am in now way a professional blogger as such but I been there a little while, almost 4 years for that matter, and I guess you could say I learned from my mistakes and also by observing, making note and interacting. I see it as a community and I like to share too. So here my second part and this time around I'll talk about Honestly in blogging, comments, posting or not posting & worrying about your blog.

Génifique by Lancome | Review

Lancome is for me a brand that we don't get to hear very often, and that is a shame. I've known this brand pretty much since I was at school and had pony tails on each side of my head (and trust me when I said this was many, many, many years ago) & when my mum had shelves full of this brand along with a few other iconic ones. I still remember the smell of her Lancome lipsticks and all her creams and potions.

The Past Few Weeks #5 | baby, Wedding & New House.

Its been a while since I have written a new chapter of my The Past Few Weeks series, the last one was in October last year which you can find here
So since end of last year, what have been happening?  As you may remember I announced my pregnancy last October. I was at the time about 5 months pregnant and now, obviously, I am no longer pregnant and I have, as I am typing this post, a 6 months adorable baby lying by my side. Her name's Émeline, she is our everything, a little bunch of pure happiness for my fiancé and I. She was born the 4th February at 38 weeks weighing no more than a little 2 kg 540  (5.5 pounds) a very little baby that made her even more precious to us. She is healthy, beautiful and we love her more than words can describe. 
I would love to show her to the world though my blog but I never agreed on plastering pictures of babies / kids in general on social medias so she'll stay off those platforms until she is big enough to decide for herself.

Wales | A Romantic Picture Tale

Wales...One of my favourite locations for a romantic get away. For the beaches, the colours, the nature, the wildlife and their people...
At the back end of last year my fiancée decided to take his pregnant lady as in : ME! To a week away far from London, work stress & city noises for a well deserve rest for the mind & body and what better place than the very lavish and green Wales. We stayed at Saundersfoot a pretty little sea side town with it's harbour on the South East Coast, it's long sandy beach, picturesque pubs & local delicateness.

Star Wars Identities at the O2 London | Exhibition

In a galaxy far far away....
I am a... what people seems to call us these days... 'a geek'. I am proud to embrace it and I certainty have no shame about it. Star Wars is for me the ultimate space opera adventure and the love I have for these movies and all the characters is immense. Since I was no bigger than 3 apples this space adventure always filled my dreams.

Drops of Youth By The Body Shop | Review

Something that I rather love about The Body Shop is that they always innovate when it come to their facial skin care, or any of their skincare products for that matter, their packaging is always really pretty and appealing and we all know their products are using ingredients that are not tested on animals, these are 3 significant points that will always attract me.
I started my 'after birth time' with a fresh new cream and I went for Drops Of Youth by Body Shop to give my skin a boost of hydration that I kind of lost during my pregnancy and especially right after the birth.

Cream Cleanser By Bee Good | Review

I discovered Bee Good Cream Cleanser about a year ago at a Bloggers event where I was kindly gifted few mini samples, enough to keep me going for few months. I am not going to lie but it was love at first sight or shall I say love at first try. Recently I finished a couple of my cream cleansers including all my mini Cream Cleanser ones by Bee Good and all I've been thinking is to get the large Cream Cleaner version Honey & Propolis by... you guessed it : Bee Good.

What's new in my makeup bag?

I am not going to lie but with the imminent arrival of my 1st baby with my fiancé , I haven't been shopping much for beauty products but mostly for baby products which is a rather different, and sometimes emotional, shopping experience. I can officially say that we are finally ready to welcome our munchkin to the world, but this is not the theme of this post. It's mostly about bits and bobs in the make-up or skincare range that have been getting during the festive season.

What I heart in December

Oh do I love Winter, probably my favourite season and I am not ashamed to say that I can never wait until the end of summer, which I dislike, for a winter of comfy socks, blankets, DVD nights, hot chocolate, cold countryside walks and candles. For me right there is my happiness with the addition of my loving boyfriend, my purring cat and this year winter came with a little extra: A 8 months baby bump!  
This month's favourites are surprisingly pretty much just beauty, I usually love including non-beauty products when I do monthly or a season favourites but I think am I going to keep the non-beauty for a future upcoming post.
