  3. Long Term Beauty Treatments That Can Save You Time and Money

    Posted on

    Saving time and money on beauty are two things that I love to do.  I don’t enjoy doing beauty treatments at home.  I’d rather be doing something else, like running my business and making money, or exercising and enjoying nature!

    I also find it frustrating having to spend money on beauty.  I do like to maintain myself as well as possible, but with working from home and my other daily activities only usually involving exercising and the school runs, I can get away with a minimal beauty routine which saves me money each month.  There's no point in being all made-up just for myself working at home all day, and I simply don't have enough time.

    You can't buy time, but you can invest in beauty treatments that'll keep you looking great for longer, and save you money in the long run.  In this blog post, I will explore some long term beauty treatments that can improve your confidence, save time and perhaps even save money!

  5. How much does a smile makeover cost?

    Posted on

    For some people, if their teeth aren’t perfect then it can really affect their confidence.  I used to be like this and would never smile with my teeth and was often too embarrassed to even talk to people as I didn’t want them to see my teeth.

    Now I don’t have to worry.  I spent over two years with train track braces and perfected my smile with cosmetic dentistry once the braces were off.  In total I spent over

  6. How to save money on cosmetic dental treatments

    Posted on

    A trip to the dentist is often at the top of most people's “things we tend to put off” list.  It's a necessary evil and a hassle at the best of times; especially now with current circumstances, it makes the process just that little bit more annoying.  In addition to the inconvenience and time consumption of a regular dentist appointment, we also often put off cosmetic dentistry even though many of us wish we had a better looking smile. Cosmetic dentistry can be expensive, which is probably the main reason here.  Fortunately, whether you can’t make it to the dentist right now or if cost is a major factor, there are some alternative treatments available to order online from the comfort of your home.

  7. Beauty tips: how to save money at a hair salon

    Posted on

    For many people, especially busy working mums, going to the hair salon is more reminiscent of a spa day than a menial task.  It’s a chance to interact with someone else, even if small talk is not your forte, a moment to shut eye whilst having a soothing head massage and letting someone else take care of us for a short while.  Going to the hairdressers becomes an experience, rather than a beauty maintenance task that must be complete.

    However, the luxury of a hair cut by a professional hairdresser, especially with a wash and blow dry, does come at quite a cost. 

    I’ve regularly spent up to £45 per haircut over the years at various hairdressers just for a simple cut and blow dry.  It’s quite extortionate!

    I remember even being charged more once because I had long hair.  A £5 surcharge if your hair was longer than a certain length!  Penalised for having long hair!!

  11. How to prepare your skin for spring and summer

    Posted on

    Read on for lots of tips for how to prepare your skin for spring and summer.  Finally the cold harsh winter and surprise March snowfalls we’ve had this year will soon be behind us.  I cannot wait for the warmer weather and neither can my body.  The cooler months play havoc on my skin with cracked lips and dry rough hands.  It’s never something I suffered with in my twenties, but now I’m in my thirties just a brisk walk outdoors in low temperatures is enough to split my knuckles.  Transport me to a sun drenched summer and my skin will soon glow!

  12. Natural beauty review: Sunrise-Sunset Facial Primer from Angelica Botanical Therapy

    Posted on

    Around one month ago I was sent the Sunrise-Sunset Facial Primer to review from the natural beauty company Angelica Botanical Therapy.  I have religiously been using this primer every day since receiving it, not only in order to review this item on my blog if I liked it, but because I can genuinely see the benefits of using a primer each and every day.

    The primer glides on so easily; it makes it so satisfying to apply it every morning.  Once absorbed and left for five minutes to settle, it does exactly the same to my makeup.  It makes my makeup glide on to my face effortlessly giving a more perfect finish than without using any primer.  Even with natural BB cream added on top, and a lot of concealer to hide my dark circle ‘mum bags’ under my eyes, I can see my complexion looks more even and glowing thanks to this primer.

  13. Angelica Botanical Therapy Manuka Hand and Body Lotion review

    Posted on

    The team at Angelica Botanical Therapy kindly sent me some of their delicious smelling Manuka honey hand and body lotion around four weeks ago to trial.  I’ve been using it every day on my hands and arms, and occasionally on my legs if it’s been hot enough to whip them out!  Angelica Botanical Therapy sells a range of high quality natural plant based body care to suit your natural beauty needs.

    Over the past few years I have changed nearly all my makeup, toiletries and body care items to natural products which contain no nasties.  Not only to protect myself from toxic ingredients, but to prevent so much chemical waste from destroying the environment.  After all, where do you suppose it’s all washed away to once you’re finished with it?
