New Beauty Buy: The Organic Pharmacy Carrot Butter Cleanser


If you've read any of my previous skincare posts or watched my skincare routine on YouTube, you'd know that I try and only use products which are as natural as possible on my skin to help avoid sensitivity and breakouts.

Recently I made an investment into a carrot butter cleanser by The Organic Pharmacy, after coming across the brand on the Selfridges website and learning that they are a completely natural and organic beauty company - a match made in heaven!

The only way I can describe the brand is that they are a little bit like The Ordinary, but much more expensive! Usually I don't like to splash out on skincare as I tend to run out of product pretty quickly, but I thought I would spend the £43 and give it a go to see if it really is worth investing in skincare.

Carrot butter has properties known for making the skin soft and radiant. After using this product, I've found that my face instantly feels softer and I have also noticed that my complexion is sometimes much more radiant when I wake up in the morning - however other factors such as a good nights sleep or how much water I drank the night before could also play factors in this.

The product also has a strong lavender scent to it, which is one of the first things I noticed when I tried it for the first time. This could be make or break depending of if you're a lover of lavender as the scent does stay on the skin ever after the product has been washed off, however I find this quite soothing and calming as I tend to head to bed straight after doing my skincare.

This cleanser is a balm cleanser which melts instantly when in contact with the skin. It is quite an oily consistency once on the face, so it's probably not the best product for someone with oily skin. I don't use this product everyday as I would definitely break out if I did, so I tend to use it once a week if I have been wearing heavy makeup or if I just want to give my skin some extra TLC. 

Overall, I do think this product is worth the money due to the fact that it is completely natural so you can have the security in knowing that no harsh chemicals are being applied to the skin. It's not a cleanser that I would personally use everyday, however it may suit other skin types better to be used more regularly such as drier complexions.

Have you ever purchased something from this brand or have you tried the carrot butter cleanser?

Finding Your Life's Purpose.

Last year I wrote a post on why it's okay to not know what to do with your life, and to date that is one of my most viewed and most well-received post I have ever written.

The general feedback I got from that post is that a lot of you really don't know where you want to go in your life and sometimes seem pressured into needing to know or hit milestones at times which are deemed as the "norm". If you've clicked on this post, chances are you too don't know what to do with your life and feel stuck in a process to figure it out.

Everybody goes through this and that's okay!

At the start of this year I set up my own business and since then things have just got better and better. I have found a true passion which pays me and I'm well on my way to achieving one of my biggest life goals of being my own boss. Let me know if you want a post about my business and what I do!

Finding what I want to do for the rest of my life, I'm going to refer to it "purpose" in this post, didn't come easy. For most of my life I felt like I was lacking and behind everyone who seemed to know what university course they wanted to do, or what they wanted to do as a career. I simply felt as if I was plodding along, knowing I wanted to run my own business, but not knowing exactly what the business was going to be and feeling like there was no way little old me could ever set up something of my own. That's when I found this concept of "Ikigai".

Ikigai translates to "a reason of being" in Japanese and is a Japanese concept which brings together 4 elements: passion, mission, vocation and profession. In other words, your ikigai is finding an occupation which you love, are good at, helps others and pays you!

You're probably thinking, "well...duh?" 

And I don't blame you. That's what everyone is searching for, but sometimes it can be difficult to put a finger on just what exactly that is. This is where the ikigai comes in!

What would you do if money was no object?

If you have an answer to this, then why the hell aren't you doing it?! In life the hardest yet most rewarding thing you can do for yourself is to not care about other people's opinions and eliminate your battle of self-doubt.

If you don't have an answer to this question, grab a pen and paper.

In one corner of the page write down everything you are good at, absolutely everything.
In the second corner write down everything you love to do and things which get you excited.
In the third corner write everything you think the world needs more of or could benefit from.
In the fourth corner write down everything you can be paid money for.

Be totally truthful with this exercise - nobody else has to see this list except for you.

If you have found something which fits in all 4 categories (and there will be something), then congratulations, you have found your ikigai!

Your passions are what make you feel significant and you can turn absolutely any passion into a career. Once you have found your purpose your life will start to lead more direction and happiness. Money will merely be a bonus. 

Let me know down below if you try this technique, or if you have already found where you want to go in life!

Malta Holiday Vlog



Who else doesn't want Summer to end? Because I know I definitely don't! 

In June I hopped on a plane with my boyfriend and went to Malta for the week! I had been to Malta before, however this time I stayed in a different area and explored different places and honestly, it will be a holiday to remember!

Since I'm on a flow of creating YouTube videos at the moment, I decided to film my whole trip and upload it as a vlog for you all! If you haven't already, please go and subscribe and leave a little like and comment!

Hope you like it!




Get To Know Me Tag!

When you have a blog, it can be difficult to get across your true personality through writing. I have had my blog for 3 years now (wow) and I feel like I haven't done a post to really help you get to know me. 
Since I now have a YouTube channel, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for me to do the get to know me tag so you can get to know me a bit better! I'll be answering loads of questions from personal to random to help you get a better understanding of what I'm all about! 

Do you have any other questions I should answer? Leave them in the comments!

Also leave a little comment telling me what other videos you would like to see from me!
