Natural & Organic make up round up

The natural & organic make up products that I use & love.

I use these brands as I choose to use cruelty free, natural, organic, chemical free skincare & cosmetics.

My Products

🍄 Living Nature Black eyeliner – I got mine from Health 2000

🍄 Inika certified organic brunette brow pencil

🍄 Miessence porcelain translucent liquid foundation – light coverage can be used like a B.B. cream too. I find it builds up well with the concealer – for dark under eye etc & then powder to set.

🍄 Miessence concealer in two shades – one darker shade for contouring and one the same colour as my foundation. I use the lighter one under my eyes, brow bone & along the bridge of my nose and up between brows to forehead

🍄 Miessence blush in ginger blossom – I don’t use this a lot. When I do I only need a touch.

🍄 Miessence mascara – not waterproof but I find it really good unless you cry. And it’s organic of course. ( they’ve taken the mascara offline at the moment 😢)

🍄 Miessence translucent powder – to set my foundation

🍄 World organics – the organic skin co eyeshadows. I have two pallets – Espresso Love (left) & Twilight Star (right). The packaging is bamboo with the metal insets with the powder inside. I wasn’t 100 on the ingredients but I had looked for an eyeshadow for so long that it was the best I’d come across in the natural realm.

🍄Miessence bronzer – I use this sometimes like a contour round the ‘3’ and under my jawline.

🍄 Karen Murrell Red lipstick – number 12 Rymba Rhythm. I got mine at Health 2000.

I’ve been using Miessence for 10 years now, I love the products & ethical heart of the brand. Love that it was started by a mama concerned about chemicals.

What’s your favourite natural makeup product & brand? Always looking for options.

Much love

You are worth the gold standard

You are worth the gold standard
I used to buy literally the gold standard for my husband  – this facial serum which has a good lid and bottle.

And is divine AF to use & makes your skin feel like a dream.

Anyway here I was just using a standard daily moisturiser.

Then I was like hang on I deserve the best stuff too. The gold stuff. The slightly pricier ( a word ?!)

So now I use it everyday now & its divine.
This gold standard that I’m talking about = 

Facial serum line up
Rejuvenessence facial serum its a luxurious facial oil – you will feel like you are getting a spa facial every morning when you apply it.

It’s applied at the moisturiser ‘stage’ of your skincare routine. It’s super concentrated too so a little goes along way.

If you have especially dry skin this is perfect for you & it’s not heavy so still absorbs nicely into your skin. That’s why it’s also ok for all skin types. My husband & I have different skin types & we both use it.

Suzanne loves it too

Mum life

This might sound familiar  Mama

💟 settling for second best

💟 making do for you

💟 letting everyone else go first

💟 not getting a fuss made about you

You have probably been guilty of buying an outfit from a kids boutique for your child while you can’t possibly spend 💰 on that new dress for yourself. ( and while I think about that. It’s so much more economical to buy the dress for yourself anyway as kids grow so damn fast!)

Just know you are worthy of it all. Choose the gold standard for yourself when you can.

That doesn’t just mean spending money but taking time for yourself, celebrating you & accepting when others want to celebrate you and all aspects of self care.

 

Prioritising family life

I’ve heard some say that your priorities should be you, your marriage/ relationship then your kids. Conflicting & it can make you feel like abit of a heartless b but when you think about that.

💖 When you are doing you & taking care of yourself, you have a lot more patience & understanding in your parenting.

💖 When your relationship game is tight you are creating a positive environment for your children & role modelling a healthy relationship.

So really it’s with your children’s wellbeing in mind you take care of yourself & your relationship so you can show up for your kids. {click to tweet}.

Whew some days it just flows here I was starting off about some gold standard facial serum & now we are back to the subjects I love self love, parenting & mindset.

Go well Mama 😘

Have you heard of Fulvic acids? 

What are Fulvic Acids?

 
Fulvic acid is one of the most powerful natural electrolytes known to man. Electrolytes are important because they are what your cells use to maintain voltages across their cell membranes and to carry electrical impulses across themselves and to other cells.
Cellular electrical energy could be called the life force of the body.
Fulvic acids are supercharged biochemical and phytochemical batteries.
They store massive amounts of the suns energy.

How was Fulvic Acids created?

The energy was captured by the plant during photosynthesis, and then through many generations of microbial decomposition and digestion (as that plant broke down after it died), it is transformed into the most refined and complex natural substance on Earth.

My wish for the planet 🌎

My wish for the world

I wrote this 3 years ago.

I had written ‘birth wishes’ for both of my children & had wonderful births which lived up to my wishes.

So I wrote this as I was reflecting on climate summits etc & always feel like there is not a lot happening.

I’ve always had an interest in environmental issues but have felt helpless.

I could have mentioned more in my wish but this is my basic planet wish.

Start where you are quote

Start where you are

I had already started by the point I had written my wish –

💜 I try to live sustainably

💜 Eat local

💜 Minimize household cleaning products & chemicals in general

💜 Trying to move toward zero waste

💜 Support those that are standing up & making their voices heard on the issue

💜 Being mindful about the impact what I’m doing, has on the planet.

💜 Organic skincare & cosmetics

💜 Support sustainable ethical companies.

These last two are what drew me to Miessence and why I continue to choose their products & remain a product partner. They are organic, natural & carbon negative ( one step better than carbon neutral).

So I feel confident supporting such a sustainable ethical company & sharing it with others.

I could go all out on this issue but I’m keeping this post positive, as my wish is, and that’s where I started it.

What is your wish for the planet? Environmental or otherwise. Let me know in the comments below.

Wellbeing Wednesday ~ We had a great idea

We had a great idea and then made it a reality. Lucky for us the wonderful team at Miessence followed through on their dream for chemical free skincare, cosmetics & nutritional products. Creating the worlds first organically certified nutritional, health and beauty products.

If you want to know more about what they created, check it out their vision here.

Spirulina – richest source of nutrition in the world

Spirulina contains over 100 synergistic nutrients and is the single richest and most complete source of total organic nutrition in the world!

As natures richest whole food source of Bio-chelated Organic Iron, its 58 times richer than raw spinach and 28 times richer than raw beef liver! It is also natures richest whole food source of Beta Carotene (Pro-vitimin A) being 25 times richer than raw carrots!

Spirulina is one of nature’s near-perfect foods, as it is up to 70 percent protein by weight and is rich in B vitamins (including B-12), minerals, GLA, natural iodine and phycocyanin

  • “Spirulina was found to have very positive effects for radiation sickness when given to children exposed to radiation after the Chernobyl nuclear accident
  • Many studies have found that Spirulina can serve as a “radiation shield,” helping protect your thyroid gland, strengthen your immune system and blood, protect your kidneys, and bind to heavy radioactive isotopes so they can be more quickly eliminated from your body
  • While spirulina is an excellent source of nutrition, you must be very careful about its source, since it can be contaminated with heavy metals and other environmental pollutants” (www.mercola.com)

Certified Organic Spirulina is in both the Deep Green Alkalising Superfood and Inliven Probiotic Superfood.
