CHANGING THE RAZOR GAME WITH ESTRID - VEGAN AND SUSTAINABLE RAZOR FOR ALL WOMEN

*This post contains gifted items.

Now, I don't have to tell you how difficult it is to find the perfect razor for a bump-free and smooth finish. I have tried many different brands, including those specific for men which I find give me a better finish than those that are directed at women, odd right? 


I have seen a lot of adverts for Estrid razor subscription and was really intrigued to see if this was going to be the one for me. So when Estrid got in touch with me about trying out a started kit, I jumped at the occasion as I spent so much money in the past on razors that did not work very well for me. Before I received my Peach razor I made sure to not shave for a few days/weeks to get the full effect from the first use.

LIFESTYLE || FILMS AND TV SHOWS I LOVE TO (RE)WATCH IN AUTUMN


I hope it's acceptable for me to post this on the first day of September even though it's technically still Summer? Autumn is by far my most favourite season of the year. As much as I love hot summer days and nights, Autumn definitely holds a close place in my heart. As I'm writing this I am sat down on my bed in the fluffiest dressing gown, got my Jo Malone 'Orange Blossom' candle burning, a cup of tea on the side accompanied by Morrisons' Quadruple Chocolate Cookies (the best cookies in the world). Now all I need is a good film or TV show on to complete my autumnal mood.

2020 || JULY FAVOURITES


Oh boy, it has been a long while since I last shared with you my Monthly Favourites. I know that these are the type of posts that everyone likes to read to see and compare your favourites to others'. This month has been a bit hot and cold, hasn't it? Hence why all of my favourites are skincare related as I am still furloughed and not wearing much makeup!

FASHION || 5 SUSTAINABLE FASHION IDEAS FOR A GUILT-FREE WARDROBE

We all have a responsibility to prioritise sustainable items of clothing, including brands. I'm definitely pro thrifting and recycling old garments, but I do find myself shopping for new pieces to add into my wardrobe without a reason which is something I'm trying to move away from and make more sustainable choices. Eco-friendly alternatives are becoming a big part of our daily lives, and the fashion world should be no different. If you are looking to create a guilt-free wardrobe, then I hope some of these five sustainable fashion tips will help you as much as they've been helping me.
