DIY Body Scrub

Body Scrub

This is a lovely recipe for a home made body scrub given to me by a really good friend of mine (thank you Dimitra)

All you need is really three ingredient and all your love and care:

  1. Brown sugar
  2. Almond oil
  3. Essential oil
       
and the recipe goes like this.
Step 1:
Pour 100 ml of Sweet Almond oil into a bowl so you can have space to work.
Step 2:
Add brown sugar – you can measure it with your eye, you need to add as much brown sugar so the mixture it is not runny nor thick .
Step 3:

Mix the two ingredients well with your hand till they look like the photo below:
Step 4:
Now its the time to add your essential oil, you can use any type of essential oil.
I  chose to use Grapefruit which is good for cellulite and keeping your skin nice and tight. You can always go for levander oil perfect for relaxation after a hard working day. You can add from 5 to 10 drops.

And your body scrub is ready!
You can pour it in a spare jar and enjoy the feeling that your skin will have after using it.
Enjoy! x

A 1930’s inspiration

A look inspired from the 1930’s

Although the scenery might be a bid modern, my friend’s beautiful features take you back to a decade that I personally love. The 1930’s!

The red lipstick, the defined eyebrows and the subtle smokey eyes inspire an elegance that will never go out of fashion.

{Warm golden browns combined with rich red lipstick give a modern feel to a 1930’s look}

{This elegant 1930’s look is perfect for a special night out}

Have a look of the outfit I put together for you.  A bright coloured clutch makes you stand out and accesoireses your look complimenting your red lips.

Summer is here!

One thing is sure when living in Ireland…. You can never trust the weather!

{A typical summer day…. it could even be a typical winter day}

You will never know when a summer day will come… but when the calendar hits June you now that your summer spirit should be here!

The summer is in our heart and if we feel that a summer look is the way then we must go for it and not let it depend on the weather, just wear a few more layers of summer clothing and you will be fine!! 🙂

My look today is inspired by the colours of the Greek sea! Green and blues!

Having booked my tickets for my summer holiday I am mentally preparing myself for it by playing around with different summer make up looks.

{last finishing touches}

Brighten up a cold, rainy summer day by wearing a pink scarf and a bright umbrella, accesoirize and always have your nails in bright colours, this will definitely up your spirit!
