Keeping Your Summer Glow

September is upon us and with that comes colder weather and the end of the sunshine (not that we had any of that). I'm trying to hang on to the summer feeling for a little longer.

In order to keep that feel good feeling I've been making an effort with what I'm eating. Eating the right foods can really help keep the glow going. Since making the full time change to veggie I've been eating lots of fresh veg and have noticed a great change in my skin. To snack on I'm trying to eat less processed foods and more healthy snacks. Aloha do a great range of snacks that look super tasty!

Microdermabrasion at The Summer House

I was really kindly invited by Amy to have a microdermabrasion facial at The Summer House. The Summer House, is exactly that, a cute little summer house in a gorgeous garden in Bourne End. This is a little location specific compared to some of my posts, but you'll just have to make the trip.

I'd heard of microdermabrasion from late night QVC watching with my Dad, but I'd never experienced it myself. I wasn't sure what it would be like to have it done. It looked like it might hurt. I can confirm, that is doesn't.

Where have I been?

So, hi. It's been a while...sorry about that. Life got in the way.

Since I last wrote, I've been away, twice, I got a job and a crashed my car (I'm ok, it's ok £300 excess later). But I'm back now, hopefully a little more regularly!

I've been here
 And I saw these

And I had the best time. I'll write a big post about Shetland and the Folk Festival soon with some more photos. 

I work in social media and I spend a lot of time on my computer and Twitter, so it's hard to want to do that in my spare time as well. But now I've settled into it a bit more hopefully I'll get more done!

So thanks for sticking around. There's some beauty related posts to come too, so let's get back into the swing of things.

As part of my on-going leave the house more campaign I went to the Reading Oracle shopping centre. I was excited to discover that there was a KIKO store there. I did some Googling and I believe that KIKO is cruelty free. I hope I'm not wrong about that!

Wishlist Wednesday: ASOS

I love trawling through ASOS, it's up there as one of my favourite pastimes. You can pick up fairly inexpensive clothes when the season changes. Coupled with the fact that I want to change most of my current wardrobe. Here's some things I'm lusting after right now.

The Vegan Kind #TVK18

I've never signed up for a monthly box subscription, I've been tempted but there's never been one that grabbed me, especially since going cruelty free. I wanted to be able to guarantee that nothing would be tested on animals.

I came across The Vegan Kind on a Google search, but didn't take the plunge until there was a code on instagram. I ordered my box on the 1st April at about 10:30am (cut off for subscriptions is 12 noon) and it arrived on Saturday (11th). Not bad at all! I missed it because I was out but picked it up this morning. Here's what was inside:
I ripped my address labels off, hence the damage
