Happy Easter...

Hello.. Hello guys!
Guess what.. it is Easter in a few days? Can you believe it? cause I can't, Easter already, it literally feels like Christmas was last month....
Any way have you noticed that the sun does exist and so do Daffodils, which if you didn't know are one of my all time favourite flowers because they remind of new life and forgiveness and the that hot weather is finally on its way.

Chocolate shaped rabbits have been grinning at me from shop windows! which is why this blog post is all about an easy Easter gift idea that I am defo going to be using this year.

Also one last thing is if you didn't already get the hint.... SPRING IS HERE!!!

Now lets get on with the Easter treats........ Yummy chocolate!

Firstly you are going to need....
Glass Jars (as big or as little as you like depending on how many chocolates you want to give)
Tissue paper (for wrapping and for putting in the bottom of your jar)
3 creme eggs or how many you want
4-6 bags of mini eggs or mini easter eggs of your choice
Some string or ribbon
 Now lets get on with the fun stuff......

Firstly you going to need to line the bottom of your jars with some tissue paper. I did this as it gives your jar a bit more of a sophisticated look and also helps to make your jar look more full so you won't need as many eggs.

Next you will need to place one large ish egg in the bottom of your jar (well on top of the tissue paper) then cover with mini eggs.

Do the same again with the last two large ish creme eggs and then cover them with the mini eggs of your choice.

Once finished place the lid on your jar quickly so you aren't tempted to eat to many of those Eggs before you give them out to your friends or family, as I can tell you I did eat one or two little eggs :).

Finally wrap your jar in the left over tissue paper and tie the ribbon of your choice around the jar to give it more of pretty look. And there you have it a quick, easy and cheap Easter gift, that is better than just buying a plain old egg and shows the person you have put some thought in to it even if it did only take your 5-10 mins. Its the thought that counts.

Happy Easter guys and girls
 I hope you have a lovely weekend with family and friends where ever you are
and if you don't celebrate easter, just enjoy eating loads of chocolate.
Loads of love Drew, Drewella what ever name you have for me hehehe

Neal's Yard Remedies haul...

Happy Friday...
How lucky are you guys 2 blog post in 1 week! What has happened too me I'm organized for once....

 Welcome to my Neal's Yard Haul...
For those of you that don't know what Neal's Yard is or aren't to sure about what they do or there ethics behind there products I'm just going to give you a little background knowledge.
"Organic health and beauty is there passion. They're on a mission to transform people's lives and protect the environment by encouraging a more natural and holistic way of living."
For Information go to Neal's yard link
 Facial skin care:
Firstly I'm going to start it off with Skin care-
Our skin is forever changing, so many factors effect our skin on a daily bases from pollution, the weather, stress and even the food we eat. So don't be afraid if you skin type doesn't stay the same forever because our skin goes through so much. Being the largest organ of the body we need to take our time to look after our skin and I found the perfect way to do that is by going all natural and all organic and the answer is NEAL'S YARD.
Benefits from- Rehydrating rose toner
*Leaves skin feeling beautifully refreshed
*Helps prepare your skin to better absorb moisturisers
*Also contains balancing damask rose oil
This toner has worked wonders on my skin, my skin has never been so clear apart the hormonal days of the month but thats just normal for a teenage girl. Putting this on after my bath or shower really refreshes and brightens up my skin. LOVE IT!

Benefits for- Orange flower facial wash.
*Effortlessly lifts away grime and make-up
*Leaves skin feeling soft and fresh
*With soothing calendula and aloe vera
This facial wash has been a life saver the last few months with the cold weather and the wind has made my skin so dry and dehydrated, From using this cleanser and the rose toner my skin has been rehydrated and has never felt so fresh. Highly recommend this cleanser to anyone who suffers from dry skin. It's a must...
Organic eye make up remove.
when I first saw this I thought how can eye make up remove be organic, I just couldn't get my head round it. But since using this eye make up remover I've noticed how gentle it has been on my skin and how I hardly need any to remove make up from round my eyes. (but it stings like hell if you get it in your eye, but of course how gets it in there eye any way not me hehe).

Now where to start with the rose beauty balm, this has so many amazing properties but sadly my skin just doesn't agree with it :( I believe it is because I'm so sensitive but I'm definitely going to try it out again because I just love it. And it smells amazing.
*multi purpose beauty must have
*cleanses, exfoliates, moisturises and I even found it really lovely to put on before my make up, I found that my make up seemed to stay on for much longer.

White tea facial mist is what I call (insert Miranda's mum haha) life saver in a bottle. For those hot summer days;which we get all the time in the UK, it is great to spritz all over the face for instant hydration and to freshen up the skin. I'm definitely going to be taking this too Australia with me for that long flight and the hot sunny days to freshen up my skin. Its also great because you can even do it over make up.

This one is new so I haven't tired it yet but I've heard its amazing.
*Purifies for a clearer complexion
*Decongests, Ideal for blemish prone skin
*Perfect for on the go blemish control.
Sounds amazing to me, can't wait to try it out.

Sadly all of my mineral powder foundation has ran out, I'm so sad because it has been  amazing on my skin and has been great for touching up my oily T-zone. A new one is going to be ordered this week for sure. 
*light and buildable for silky soft beautiful skin.
*it is also enhanced with beautiful skin nourishing organic oils.

Mineral bronzer.
This bronzer is absolutely beautiful, it is so easy to apply to the skin and gives an effortless effect. 
*a sun kissed glow
*long lasting nourishing coverage.

Bath and Body

Geranium and orange hand wash is beautiful not like anything I've used before leaves hands feeling beautiful and soft. 
 This is my new bath and shower gel, as I've previously used Aromatic foaming bath which was too die for. My skin felt so soft and conditioned after my bath. I thought why not try a different one, so I can see which one will be my favorite in the end.

I love essential oils.
I have quite a few so I just picked out my two favourites the Lavender for relaxing and the Lemon which is great for cleansing .
I love to put drops of these in my bath or add them to grapeseed oil when doing massage. I love how each and every essential oil has a different form of healing properties. Just blows me away. 
Love them.

Have a great weekend.
Enjoy Shopping at Neal's yard.
Loads of love

Room Tour...

Afternoon lovelies....
What's everyone up to on this very sunny and warm Tuesday afternoon?
How's your week going so far?
Mines been very positive actually I had a great day yesterday at college, I had dermalogica training in the morning which was very interesting and then had 2 exams in the afternoon which I am very pleased to say I passed both :)......

I have finally got round to doing my room tour blog post (sorry about the wait) but I wanted to wait until I had made my bed (I don't just mean my bedding, I'm literally making my own bed) but I couldn't wait any longer. So here it is.

Room Tour -(Links to certain things will be below)

I loved redecorating my room because I wanted it to represent who I am/ Who I have become! I also wanted it to feel more like my own, I feel it is really important that everyone has there own space that they feel comfortable in and that you really truly love yourself. I don't feel that it matters if someone else hates it because its my space where I spend at lot of my time so I have to feel peaceful and comfortable in my own surroundings.

February favorites...

Hello you lovely people,
How's your week been?
hope you're having a lovely weekend? and you're going to spoil your mothers on Sunday for mothers day.

Sorry for the lack of posts recently I've just been super busy with college and assessments and going to the London beauty show, which was amazing!

Any way lets get on with the post. February favorites! No way March already, this year is flying by..

February Favorites. 

Greys Anatomy is literally all I've watched for the past few months and I don't even care. Its that amazing! I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves a good drama, hospitals and doesn't mind blood cause I'm gunna give you the heads up there is a lot of it. I'm on series 9 at the moment, so I've almost caught up with the showing on TV which means I'll be down to 1 a week and I don't know how I'll cope. 

I love blogilates. I started doing blogilates just after Christmas and it's so good but sooo hard. I can really see it working, which is amazing because I'm trying to get bikini body ready for Aussie but I'm not really trying to loose any weight I just want to tone up. I highly recommend blogilates to anyone and everyone as there's workouts for everyone and its so nice to be able to do amazing workouts from the comfort of your own home. so if I was you I would defo check it out. (link below)

Back at the girl online books. I just love them, I don't know what it is but there is something about them that I really truly LOVE. Almost a comforting book. All I have to say is great job Zoe.

Aveeno cream... what a life saver! my skin has been so bad this month and I don't know why, its really been getting me down but the one thing that has got me through the bad skin is this Aveeno cream. It has really hydrated my skin and it has really started to clear up my dry patches. Thank you Aveeno!

I have also finally redecorated my room. 
Here is just a sneaky little pick at what i've done. 
Next blog post will be a new room tour.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
Have an awesome week 
see you on tuesday
loads of love
