The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig

OK so let's be honest, fig scents have been a bit of a thing over the past few years, haven't they? It all started with the likes of Diptyque Philosykos, a fragrance which has taken the beauty world by storm and adorns more than a few bloggers dressing tables (including mine - read review here). One of those blogger inspired purchases that everyone had on their wishlist and everyone needed to have in their fragrance collection. 

A few brands over the years have brought out fig-themed products and ranges, hoping to stir up that same adoration and lust as Diptyque, but none have managed to get the scent right for me. That was until The Body Shop released their Italian Summer Fig range, and finally I've found a fig-scented beauty range that's budget-friendly and more affordable than it's high-end counterpart. Listen up fig fans, because this is a range that needs to go on your wishlist.

Baby Friendly Brands

One of the first things I talked to my partner about when we found out we were expecting a baby, was what we would use on them products wise. Although I'm not a 'green blogger', using brands and products which are natural, organic and free of unnecessary ingredients where possible is extremely important to me, and that's something I want to carry on with our baby too. The way I see it, if there's ingredients, brands and formulas I avoid using on my own skin, why would I put them on my baby? Especially when they're a newborn and their skin will be so sensitive and easy to react. 

Thankfully, my partner agrees and he's more than happy for us to use natural and organic brands where possible, going for brands which avoid ingredients which can be harsh to skin and ultimately are pretty unnecessary ingredients just used to bulk products out. For today's pregnancy post, which marks my 26th week of pregnancy, I'm going to be sharing with you some of the organic, natural and baby-friendly brands we plan to use with Gizmo, giving you a little introduction to each brand and why we think they will be a good choice for our baby.

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette

The Urban Decay Naked range is constantly expanding, and it always seems to be the range which gets beauty adorers worldwide excited the most. What started with the perfect everyday neutral eyeshadow palette has turned into a huge phenomenon with eyeshadow palettes big and small, foundations, beauty balms and concealers, cheek palettes with everything you need for blush, bronze and highlight, lip-glosses and finishing powders. Undoubtedly one of the most famous beauty ranges out there, in everyone's makeup collection, on everyone's wishlist.

The latest Naked product to join the range and one which has been cropping up on quite a few blogs and Instagram accounts lately with mandatory swooning comments, is the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette, but is it really worth all the hype it's getting?

Autumn is creeping it's way in, with summer soon to be a forgotten memory. The perfect way to keep a touch of summer, a glimmer of nature growing strong whilst everything around us turns to ambers and golds, with leaves falling from trees and rainy days becoming regular, are beautiful bouquets of flowers. My favourite way to brighten up our home, a beautiful sight to wake up to each morning, with the scent of fresh flowers being a comforting scent to envelope yourself in.

OK so October is technically autumn, but seeing as the UK has been getting some pretty nice sunshine and very warm days over the past week or so, I think the FeelUnique Summer Time Beauty Box will fit in nicely, especially for anyone jetting off before the end of the year on a dream holiday.

A Double Cleanse with Vichy

Cleansing. It's probably the step most people find the biggest chore in a skincare routine, but for me it's my favourite step - and the step I think is the most important. I have more cleansers than any other aspect of skincare and I've always said that if you don't cleanse your skin properly, it won't matter how expensive or scientifically proven the rest of your skincare is, without a clean canvas they simply won't be as effective as they could be. 

For me cleansing both morning and night is a daily habit, it's part of my routine and something that signifies the start of a new day and the evening wind-down before bed. I'm a cleansing fiend, and lately there's two products which have taken top spot in my evening cleansing routine, leaving my skin pretty darn happy in return.
