Five Products from Nude by Nature you HAVE to try

(Features press samples - see disclaimer)

Mineral makeup brand, Nude by Nature is Australia's number one brand for cruelty-free make-up and with the brand on our shores, I've been trying out exactly what is worth your time. 

Nude by Nature was created in 2008 in Sydney - born from a demand by a society that was becoming more and more conscious of their health, lifestyle and environmental choices. Skincare was becoming increasingly important, however, whilst people were trying to avoid toxins and harsh chemicals during their morning and evening skincare routine, they weren’t spending the same energy selecting the best make-up and so the brand was born. 

Starting with a capsule collection of just three mineral foundations, a bronzer, a finishing veil and a make-up brush, Nude by Nature quickly became a household name and since trying a selection of their products (they've expanded their range massively in ten years) I have some thoughts.

Introducing Nursem's NEW Bodycare Range

(Features press samples - see disclaimer)

Nursem has featured a few times over the last two years on my blog, I first discovered them in 2020 and I've had a tube of their hand cream on my bedside table ever since. Excitingly, this year sees the launch of two new products - a body cream and a body wash, both of which I've been trying the last few weeks. 

Nursem was founded by husband and wife team Jonny and Antonia, a paediatric nurse - who knows first-hand just how much hands go through with constant washing while looking after patients. Nursem is a passionately advocated brand, loved by nurses, mums and many more. They're on a mission to make sure that every nurse and midwife in the country gets Nursem for free and at the same time help all other hard-working hands in need.

The new body collection launched recently and so having used it for the last few weeks it's time I give a little rundown and share my thoughts.

This year's Brickosaurs Evolution arrives at Marwell Zoo for 2022

(Complimentary tickets for the purpose of review - see disclaimer)

One thing we have been looking forward to doing again post-pandemic is heading back to the zoo, especially as we have a new addition! We have a wonderful zoo near us called Marwell Zoo and as it's dubbed as one of the best days out in Hampshire, that's exactly where we headed at the beginning of May. 

Marwell Zoo invited us to experience their all-new and interactive expedition which is on until 4th September. If you're unfamiliar with the experience, Brickosaurs is an interactive adventure featuring more than two million LEGO® bricks turned into Dinosaurs so it's sure to excite children and adults of all ages.

Five Happy Things // May 2022

I feel as though we've blinked and May was over, what happened?! For us, it was a super exciting month full of plans, birthdays and days out - we had a lot of fun, made lots of memories and really made the most of being able to live again. 

The weather could've been better, and while we have had some sunny days it has been a lot wetter than the last couple of years; I'm desperate to set up the bigger paddling pool in the garden and have a few fun days with the little ones. 

I'll be praying for sunshine and blue skies for June but in the meantime let's take a little look back on last month.

Three Pixi Face Masks to add to your Bathroom Shelf

(Features press samples & affiliate links - see disclaimer)

Face masks are my skincare go-to whenever I want ten minutes on my own in the evening, sometimes I apply them while I'm bathing the children and I have quite the collection. Over the last year, I've added a number of newbies to my bathroom shelf including three from Pixi Beauty. 

Now... you only need to search Pixi Beauty to see just how much I've tried over the years so it was about time I added this little review to the mix. 

There are three mask tubs to choose from, each for a specific skincare concern - what one will you try?

The Bok Shop // Southampton

(Press visit for the purpose of review - see disclaimer)

If there's one thing (I mean there's lots but stick with me...) that Southampton is great for it's the foodie scene and oh has it just stepped up a notch with the addition of The Bok Shop, now found at West Quay. The Bok Shop is known for its fried chicken and vegan chikn so much so that they've won a few awards along the way. 

Founded in Brighton, 2017 by friends Jamie and Howard, The Bok Shop is inspired by London style fried chicken culture, the menu is a balance of contemporary and nostalgic street-style food, cooked with fresh and homemade ingredients.

With influences from Asia, Southern United States and London, they've collaborated with published chef Adam O’Shepherd to offer a classic chicken shop menu with a ‘Bok Shop’ twist. Southampton will also see the first-ever fried chicken and sneaker shop as they collaborate with Offgrid Ldn with a sneaker pop-up store.

Beauty Solutions, new from Latest in Beauty

(Features press samples & affiliate links - see disclaimer)

I'm a big ol' fan of Latest in Beauty so discovering their all-new Beauty Solutions was music to my beauty-loving ears. It was created to make skincare simple - providing you with a recommended set of products for a simple and effective routine to tackle the issue you're most concerned about. For each solution, they'll also provide information and tips as well as an overview of what could be causing it and how to soothe or rectify it. 

At the moment, there are three beauty solutions to choose from - two skincare and one haircare. As I get older and start to notice fine lines around my eyes, I thought the Look of Lines & Wrinkles (£60.00) would be best suited to me. 

Shall we take a look inside?
