EGX Event


On Saturday A and I went to the EGX exhibition at the NEC. I don’t usually write about anything like this on here but I had such a good day so I thought I’d take you through some of the highlights. I wouldn’t say I’m a massive gamer but I do like certain games and play them whenever I get chance, so when A managed to get 2 tickets I jumped at the chance to go. The NEC is only a 10 minute train journey from us, so we thought we’d have a nice day out being gamer geeks – which I love to do! We got there for 11 o’clock and ended up queuing for 20 minutes in the wrong queue at first! Turns out we were in the queue for collecting wrist bands and we already had ours, but the event staff were just directing everyone into the same queue when we arrived. I’m glad we realised after only 20 minutes though as the queue was actually massive - it would probably have taken 2 hours to get round and if I’d queued in that for no reason I would have been majorly pissed off!

Organic Beauty Week Buys

Organic Beauty Buys

Last week was Organic Beauty Week and a lot of brands had offers on over the course of the week. I love a good bargain and as you may already know (because I haven’t mentioned this 100 times before!) I’m switching my beauty stash to include more natural and organic products, so I thought I would take advantage of some of the offers. I’ve put together a little post of all the things I picked up and my first impressions. I may do full reviews of some of these products in the future once I’ve had time to properly use them.

Inika
I found out via Annabel’s post that Inika were doing a fabulous offer in September where you buy a Mineral Foundation Powder and get a free Blush Puff Pot. I went straight to the site but alas it wasn’t there and no one seemed to know when it was happening. Then I had an email from Inika last Monday

Blog Love

Today’s post is a little different - as it’s Organic Beauty Week I thought I’d share some green beauty blogs that I’ve recently discovered and have been loving lately.





Amber’s Beauty Talk

Twitter: @amberbeautytalk
I found Amber’s blog through Ana’s Organic September post and it has become a firm favourite. Amber is posting every day through September in aid of Organic September and covering a variety of subjects - from organic beauty and fashion through to saving the bees and organic holidays. She also has a brilliant Green Beauty Newbie series that’s a must read for anyone who is new to organic and natural beauty. As a newbie myself this series has been a god send for me!

Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil

Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil

As I mentioned in my last post it’s Organic September this month, so carrying on with the theme I have a review on an organic product for you. Today I’m talking about Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil and it’s all good things.

A couple of weeks ago my skin had a major breakout and my chin and the bottom of my cheeks were covered in blemishes. A few days later I read about Organic September and remembered that I had a bottle of Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil in a drawer, so I dug it out to try and clear my skin up and I’ve been using it ever since.

All of Pai’s products are certified organic by the Soil Association and they have a list of all the ingredients they use on their website plainly laid out so you know exactly what you are getting. You
