Eos hand lotion - Berry Blossom

Eos hand lotion
When it comes to my hands, I can't really say that I look after them. I can often be found in a bucket of cleaning product or with paint all over my hands. I don't wear gloves to do any of these tasks and as a consequence I have rather tired and sorry for themselves looking hands. 

When Eos released their circular lip balm many bloggers got really excited and shared how wonderful they were. On this recommendation I purchased a lemon drop lip balm but I certainly didn't love it. You can see my review here.

I since have discovered this has more to do with the flavour I picked, others are lovely especially sweet mint.

So when Shiny from Bright Shiny Day suggested trying their hand lotion, I thought well let's give it a go.

I opted for Berry Blossom

Eos Berry Blossom
A few things to share, the smell on applying the hand cream is lovely, it has the right balance of a refreshing berry scent which is floral. A little goes a long way and unlike other hand creams there is no sticky residue left once applied. 
Eos hand lotion
The lotion though is not creamy, it is more liquid in consistently which makes it absorb quickly. There is no greasy residue, but it does leave your hands feeling fully softened and moisturised. 

It is a perfect size for a handbag, travelling or on the desk at work. It is paraben, animal and cruelty free.

Molami luxury Headphones

Stylish headphones
I have a love hate relationship with flying. I love the end destination, but the getting there part I hate. It hasn't always been the case, believe it or not I used to love flying. I loved the peace and quiet, being locked away where there are no phones or Internet connection and the pure relaxation time with no distractions. 
Plane
But after two awful flights, well the love has turned to hate. Yes it may well be irrational but there you have it. 

So when a friend suggested packing good quality headphones to drown out the sound of the planes engines. I thought well anything is worth a try. 

I am a fashionable woman however and massive ugly headphones aren't my bag. I normally wear inner ear headphones that are discrete, but these can be uncomfortable after a little bit of usage.  

I love design. Molami headphones are effortlessly stylish without compromising on the audio quality. For a while I had been eyeing up Molami headphones and was lucky enough to get a pair of Pleat headphones for my birthday.

Pleat are over-ear headphones which are gold and black and encased in napa leather.

They have been designed to frame your face, they are really comfortable and the audio quality is superb.

The headphones fold up and rotate allowing for a comfortable wear and when done you can safely store them away. They have a pleated fabric cord which means no more tangled cords.

The headphones come with noise isolation which allowed me to focus on my music and tv shows without hearing the planes engines. 

What more could you want, stylish headphones designed by women for women, that have brilliant sound quality. Sound with style.

Zakynthos Greece

Zante Greece
Kalispera (Good evening)

Did you miss me? For the last ten days I have been in Zakynthos in Greece. To be honest you probably didn't even notice I was gone, I've been writing my posts out in beautiful Greece.

Life recently has been a little hectic to say the least, so I really needed a break to recharge the old batteries.


The Villa I was staying in was set in beautiful Romiri.

Set high up in the mountains with wonderful views.

Peace, relaxation and a menagerie of animals.
This place has animals in abundance. I have had this little gecko jump on my back whilst in the pool.

I am clearly easily mistaken for a rock.

We have rescued a bat in the pool. Look so cute.

I am pleased to report he survived despite taking in a phenomenal amount of water. A tough little blighter.

Swallows have regularly taken an afternoon dip in our pool and the butterfly's have flown around the plants that surround the pool so beautiful.

For those of you who haven't visited Greece, it has 15,021 Kms of mythical coast line.

6,000 mythical islands and islets

2,844 hours a year of sunshine. The weather has been glorious. It has consisted of a morning swim, lunch by the pool, an afternoon read or outside adventure and another evening swim. Perfect.

Afternoon adventures have existed of visiting beautiful coastlines with clear turquoise waters and dramatic cliffs.

Zante is the most important breeding ground for loggerhead turtles which breed here.

Oh and the food. I have eaten so much fresh salad and fish.

I flew home today. When I left England it was definitely Summer but it feels as though the change in season has happened whilst I was away and we are most definitely in Autumn. It is a little bit nippy.

Well I am pooped from all this travelling. 

Wishing you all a nice weekend. Any nice plans? 

Antio (bye bye)

Bubble T Bath and Body

Bubble Cosmetic
The British love their tea, we simply cannot get enough of it. At Foodieforce towers it's not uncommon for me to consume six to eight cups of tea a day. My absolute favourite being Earl Grey, but I am not a quintessential Brit, taking mine with milk rather than a slice of lemon. 

So when I spotted a new cosmetic range dedicated to my favourite drink, I just had to give them a go. Bubble T bath and body products are rich tea based infusions, mixed with fruit essence and extracts. They use antioxidant technology.  

The range of products are split into three benefits:

After a busy few months at work, I am in need of restoring and recharging the batteries so opted for Hibiscus and acai berry tea - fizzy bath bombs £6.

I really love bath bombs, to relax and unwind with.

Dropping two bombs under running water my bath is infused with:

Wild strawberry helps to relieve insomnia.

The Hibiscus flower known as the 'Botox plant' holds rejuvenating properties for the skin, including the ability to firm and lift.
bath bombs
Acai berries help to smooth fine lines and wrinkles which form when the skin loses elasticity. 

Stepping in for twenty minutes I slowly brew myself, leaving me with a cleared mind and hydrated skin

All products are parabensSLA and SLES free meaning they are kind too sensitive skin. They also don't test any of their products on animals. 

I really love the new Bubble T cosmetics, ranging in price from £5 - £10 they are affordable and smell fantastic. Next on the list to try is the Moroccan 

What product would you go for? Do you have a favourite go to bath and beauty product?
