Love Shea

I’m not one for new year’s resolutions anymore, but I do like to try to use the new year as an opportunity to start a new healthy habit or work on an unhealthy habit.  I mean this in the very loosest of terms.  This year I have decided to focus a little more on self-care.  The last 3.5 years have been about pregnancies and babies and now that this part of our life is over (sob) I’m trying to move forward.

I’ve kept my self-care intention very simple – to wash my face every night.  I know, shame on me.  Honestly, it’s only recently that i’ve started taking my mascara off before bed time; and that’s only because it irritates my eyes.  Anyway, I’ve discovered this great product that fits my new intention perfectly.  Nature’s Gold Argan Face Serum by Love Shea.  I was chatting to my friend about it and she was saying that Argan Oil is a all the rage in the beauty world.  Who knew.

It’s consistency is a little oily (duh), so you only need a very small amount, which means it’ll last a good while.  IMG_1462

(Excuse my hands – they suffer terribly in the winter).

After using it my face feels like it’s had a mini facial.  And due to it being an oil rather than a cream, it’s perfect for me as an overnight moisturiser.  My new favourite beauty find.

Please note: This review has been organised by the Vegan Lifestyle Association. It has not been paid for and the products were sent free of charge. Nonetheless this is my genuine and unbiased review of the product.

Happy 2016!

Happy new year, lovely people!

This year has started well.  There are no resolutions, no diets or detoxes; only hope.  Hope for more sleep, hope for a new normal now that we have left the baby bubble behind (sob).  This year promises to be busy as I’m returning to work (long story short – this wasn’t initially the plan but I need to maintain my nursing registration for now).  I feel a little apprehensive about work, and getting the right family-work-life balance.  We’ll see.

So my blogging obviously was lower down on the priority list than I would have liked come December of last year.  And the photos of the week fizzled out.  After all these years of blogging I should just accept that I cannot blog on schedule.  I’d much rather blog as and when I feel I have something that others may want to read; a product I love, a new recipe, a great restaurant I’ve discovered.  So that’s my plan.  The focus will continue to be all things vegan (obvs).  Stay tuned!  I have a great product review coming up this weekend too.

Hope your new year has started well! x
