I have been struggling for a while with really dry elbows, I am not sure why they get so dry but I wanted to find something I could put on them before bed as my usual body moisturiser wasn’t working. I have been using this dry skin cream from cuticura for about 3 weeks now daily and have noticed a massive difference.

My elbows now feel soft and I don’t really have to worry about them so have cut down to just using cream when they need them rather than having to apply it daily.

This cream is designed for any dry patches you may have and can be used to treat eczema.

Pretty pleased with how well this worked 🙂

It’s that time of the year where the swimwear hits the shops. I wanted to find a few bits for my upcoming holidays so picked a few bits from PrettyLittleThing. Not only do they have a massive range of swimwear they have a lot of cover ups too so you choose a whole outfit and mix and match.

I love how many different choices they have, there really is something for everyone. Some bikinis come as a set but most you can pick the top and bottom separate so this is great if you like mixing colours or if you are a different size top and bottom!

I find it so important when looking for swimwear that it is something I feel good wearing as well as looking good. I want something I can wear around the pool to sunbathe and also swim in as well as something to put on top of my swimwear if walking about or going to the bar!

All of the options I went for were a size 10. I am usually an 8/10 in bottoms and a 10 in a top. All of the things I chose fitted really well.

Outfit number 1

I opted for a black scallop bikini and teamed it with a gingham dress.

Outfit number 2

I picked a separate bikini top and bottoms but both in black so they went well together. I chose high waisted bottoms with the plunge bikini top and finished the look off with a green halterneck dress.

Outfit number 3

I decided to mix it up a bit and went for zebra bikini bottoms and a simple black triangle top. I also went for a white dress.

I was impressed with the quality and prices of all the items I picked and they all fitted well and were comfortable to wear.
Roll on the sunshine so I can wear them!
Are you going away this year? Where do you usually buy your swimwear?

I have been trying a couple of products from Oil Immanuel the last few weeks and wanted to share my views with you.

Face Butter with Frankincense Patchouli and Myrrh

This face butter feels so luxurious to use. I have been using it every other night along my usual skincare routine and have noticed it has helped to heal my acne scars around my jawline. It is not too thick and it soaks in nicely. I always look extra moisturised the morning after using this. I like to use things like this at nighttime before bed.

Body Oil with Frankincense

This body oil smells great and I have been using it on my dry elbows and ankles as well as on my legs and it is so lovley to apply. I use it as a treat after a pampering bath and feel so soft after applying it. A little goes a long way and I really like using an oil over a mousturiser for my legs.

I love coming across cute home ware websites, this one also does clothes and they have the cutest cat items!

Kittens cushion

£26

I love this design and I love how it is two cats as we have two cats that are best friends and are inseparable so it reminds me of them. I think the bow feature is so cute. The cushion is a good size and a neutral colour scheme so would go with any colour scheme.

  • Dark grey base fabric
  • 40% wool felt
  • Applique embellishment
  • Velcro back
  • Comes with cushion pad / inner (polyester filler)
  • Measures approx 35cm in diameter

 

Claudette cat t-shirt

£20

This t shirt is so so comfy and a great oversized fit. I love light grey clothing and it looks great with leggings. It is so cute but not too in your face. The bow is super cute too. I went for a M so it would be longer.

  • Grey marl T-shirt
  • Loose fitting silhouette
  • Round neck with rib trim
  • Short, rolled up sleeves
  • Cat embroidery / applique

Bright side cushion

This cushion is so bright and cheerful. I love the contrast of the bright colours on the black cushion. It will certainly brighten up any room!

The Vegan Larder supplies a wide range of subscription and gift food boxes, as well as individual items. They make cooking, snacking and eating plant based exciting, healthy and easy. They were listed as the Best Vegan Subscription Box by The Independent!

Each box is packed with at least 7 products, exciting cooking helpers such as super sauces, special dipping oils, marinades and spice mixes, a sweet treat (sometimes two!), healthy snacks and something unexpected.

The Vegan Larder only uses products which are completely vegan and palm oil free (with a
gluten free option). They also focus on independent and ethical suppliers, especially those who are not well known, or who have limited stockists. This makes each box truly exciting to open!

I wanted to show you what was included in the March box this month to give you an idea of the variety of products:

Hoisin Sauce by The Garlic Farm

Steenberg Organic Herby Lemon Stuffing

Hot Beetroot and Horseradish Relish by Gingerbeard Preserves

Creative Nature’s Organic Chia and Cacao Superfood Brownie

Vegan Creamy Easter Eggs

Boundless Activated Nuts and Seeds

Lime, Chilli and Ginger Energy Bar by Hala Bar

Nim’s Beetroot and Pineapple Crisps

I am currently working my way through using the products, the creme eggs did not last long and I will be making the brownies this week! I really like the variety of the products included and the chance to try things I haven’t seen before.

It is a great idea for anyone vegan/ wanting to try new things or anyone with an allergy that avoids dairy.

You can use code: SARAH5 for £5 off your first box!
