New Decleor Rose D'Orient Bath and Shower Gel

Decleor have just launched a beautiful new trio of bath and shower gels.

Let your troubles melt away and choose from three stunning scents; energising Neroli, relaxing Lavender or soothing Rose.

Featuring 98% natural origin these decadent gels gently cleanse your skin while leaving your body and soul feeling soothed and calm.

Harnessing the power of Essential Oils they provide a unique, sensorial experience to your daily routine and the 97% natural formulation is suitable for sensitive skins thanks to its PH Neutral base.

Yay for me and my sore skin!

I absolutely love the Rose D'Orient soothing gel which sits like liquid gold waiting to be used in an elegant, tall bottle.

It can be used to create a frothy, relaxing bubble bath or a foamy shower experience but either way the experience is delightful.

The rose scent isn’t at all over powering, it is soft, subtle and you can definitely detect a hint of the additional essential oils contained within.

Rich and decadent it produces thick, frothy, relaxing bubbles in the bath and a gentle abundance of cleansing foam in the shower. 

I’m not a huge fan of Rose as a scent ordinarily, but there’s something about Rose D’Orient that I just cant put my finger on but leaves me excited for my next shower or bathing experience!

Decleor’s new range of Bath and Shower Gels including Rose D’Orient are available on and at salons and spas nationwide now and cost £18.00.

Seventeen Minutes: Subscription boxes for Mums

Seventeen Minutes is a brand that offers self-care boxes for mums, because while you’re busy looking after everyone else whose looking after you?
Founded by mum of two Sara, Seventeen Minutes offers the ultimate dose of relaxation straight to your door.

Did you know that the average mum has just 17 minutes a day to herself? 17 minutes. Not a lot I’m sure you’ll agree so Sara created these boxes to help you enjoy what limited time you do get to yourself.
Each box is filled with a selection of goodies designed to help you take some time out, remove yourself from mummy duty for a while and chill.

The best part is unlike many other brands you don’t have to sign up and commit to a long term subscription; you can purchase as a one off (£15 +p&p), or sign up for two (£35+p&p) or 4 boxes (£65+p&p) and included within each box is a motivational message along with a personal thank you.
It’s a sweet little touch that reminds you that you’re not buying from a big brand, you’re buying from and supporting a small business.

The launch box is brilliant and features two of my most favourite things; Spacemasks and Chocolate. Preferably to be used together!
For those of you unfamiliar with Spacemasks, they are self heating eye masks of pure joy that transport you to a land far, far away.

Lasting approximately 15 minutes that gives you just enough time to chow down on the super cute  Creighton’s Chocolaterie chocolate heart.
Generous in size and creamy and delicious in taste you will need to hide this from your children, no question!

Also within the box is a Teapigs bolly good chai tea sachet. I have to be honest I’m not a chai tea latte kinda girl but if you are or have yet to try them and want to then now’s your chance!
Last buy by no means least is the inclusion of a book called ‘Life Lessons from Remarkable Women’, a book about tales of triumph, failure and learning to love yourself.

If you could share one lesson from your life with every woman, what would it be?
That is the question this book by Stylist magazine asked a group of women from the worlds of entertainment, politics, sports and fashion and is perfect when you find yourself with some spare time and wish to feel empowered.

If all of this was not enough, £1 from the sale of every box goes to Pandas Foundation UK who give support to people coping with Pre and Postnatal Mental Illnesses, as well as their families, friends and carers.
As someone who has struggle with mental illness and postnatal depression this is a cause close to my heart and I think it is a wonderful and generous gift that founder Sara has offered.

So ladies, lets support one another!

Know a mum who could do with a little pick-me-up? Know a mum who is struggling? Need some ME time desperately? Then check out Seventeen Minutes.

Their boxes will leave you feeling better about yourself for far longer than just 17 minutes.

Urban Decay Naked Reloaded

They seem to be bashing them out one after the other at the moment with their Naked Palettes, not that you’ll find me complaining and Naked Reloaded in the newest addition to the Naked range.

For all die hard Naked palette fans you’ll quickly notice that that there’s a few changes with Reloaded. 

Firstly, there’s no brush. Shock horror! No seriously though, that’s so that there’s more space for more pigment and also it makes the price the point slightly cheaper too.

This Naked palette has literally had a complete overhaul!

The palette itself is nestled within a unique silky soft fabric packaging, making it both light and travel friendly and there has been an updated pigment design from the OG (Naked 1).

When Wende Zomnir created NAKED, Urban Decay was the first beauty brand to bring out a 12 pan palette and now nearly 10 years later, she’s created another original design; with NAKED Reloaded.

Reloaded is a reimagined version of the original but with 12 new shades and 4 of the pans are extra wide meaning you get more product for your buck! 

It really is a stunning palette with 12 all-new, universally flattering shades designed for everyone nd anyone, any age, gender, and skin tone.

The new neutrals are here and there are 12 nudes you’ll always need, all in one place.

Featuring the same luxurious, rich and highly pigmented formula we’ve come to love the shadows are velvety in texture, rich in colour and offer extreme bendability.

There’s a selection of essential warm and cool mattes, metallic and iridescent micro-shimmers and  a bright peach hue which really stands out from its couterparts.

So here we go, within Naked Reloaded you’ll find the following shades;

Bribe (a warm ivory matte)
Barely Baked (a soft yellow gold metallic)
Angel Fire (a pale rose-gold with an iridescent micro-shimmer)
Retro (a mega bright peach matte)

 Reputation (a deep rose-gold with iridescent micro-shimmer)
Burn (a gorgeous, rich copper-burgundy metallic)
End Game (a chocolate brown matte)
Dreamweaver (a cool brown with an iridescent 3D sparkle)

 Distilled (a bronze, soft metallic)
Bucked (a warm brown matte)
Boundaries (a warm, soft terracotta matte)
Blur (a light nude matte)

There’s usually a couple of shades within a palette that I’m not that fussed about or don’t particularly like, but my goodness I love every single shade in this one!

I’m a huge fan of ‘Burn’, its just so soft, rich and decadent. 

Just gorgeous.

The Naked Reloaded palette is available now and costs £38.
