Toxic Beauty Products in your cupboards. Know what you are applying…

Today I am writing about the dangerous toxins in regular everyday beauty products and how they can affect us. I think people need to be more aware of the dangers and so I am going to explain what the worst offenders are and how to spot them. The truth is, most people don't even look at the ingredients on their fave products and just assume if they have passed the tests they are obviously safe.

I recently watched a documentary on just how many chemicals are in our beauty regime and learned the ugly truth about cosmetics in todays market. It was called "Our Chemical Lives".

The Power of Positive Thinking

Hey there,

Today im sharing my experience with the power of positivity and the effect it has had on my life so far. A few years ago, a friend recommended the book “The Secret” to me.

“Hygge” for Life

Back to my blog after a long winter hibernation there! It's been a very cosy and relaxing environment at home and i have enjoyed the snug winter whilst wrapped up warm in front of the fire most days! I have to say it is a novelty for me, since it's our first winter in our own home. Last winter we were extremely busy with the renovation of our house and ended up having Christmas at a relatives house due to the mess and coldness of our own.

This year was really special as it was a chance to decorate and have a proper Christmas in our own place!
