#SKINCARE | Crabtree & Evelyn Body Duo's - White Cardamom / Cocoon & Pomegranate





If you are looking for a gift that gives comfort and indulgence for your body, here it is. I feel like this cream is so nourishing it penetrates all layers of my skin. As much as I wanted to re- gift this because it is so beautiful, I had to try it out for my blog so I can tell you whether to buy it or not!
The smell is something I cannot describe, it is so spicy and long lasting I love it. Here is a quote from their website describing the smell

The scent is an unexpected delicate combination of sweet iced vanilla, mid-winter mimosa, and mulled spice essences of cardamom.

I could tell that the scrub had sugar in it because of the texture of the grains, and that is something I really like as it is a natural ingredient not like the plastic beads that harm the environment. It really is a luxurious scrub, it feels so silky smooth when you rub it on and gets rid of dead skin and dirt :) the cream is also smooth on application, they are a true dream duo. 




The Pomegranate and Argan Oil range is a lot more sweeter than the Cardamom one, it is just as moisturising and luxurious. Which I have come to notice is what Crabtree and Evelyn is all about. The scents are really uplifting as they are super strong and well lasting. This fragrance is described as ..

Warm Mediterranean fruit notes of orange, juicy pomegranate and sweet fig mingle with the heat of ginger and black pepper spice.

As gifts these really wont disappoint as they are beautifully packaged and gloriously fancy! If you are buying as a gift I would browse the website as they have plenty of scents to suit everyone. As for price, they range from £19 up to £30 per item, but as a gift you cannot complain and if you are buying for yourself they do go a long way...so don't think you are paying for a small amount!

#REVIEW | You MUST binge watch these NETFLIX shows

I am now back to flicking through Netflix, deciding what to binge watch next. Once you have typed with much difficulty… psykolgifal thrilkers….and then deleted and re typed, PHYSCOLOGICAL THRILLERS , browsed through the comedy section and realised you have seen it all or don’t fancy this or that, definitely NOT that…then its no fun anymore. So I am going to tell you what exactly YOU should be binge watching on your television, not just any television mind you…make sure its high definition, with crisp displays like the Oled TV Panasonic to get the best viewing!    *there are NO spoilers  : )*

The following programmes I recommend are my personal favourites and I either became obsessed and finished the whole series in a day or 2 OR I couldn’t wait until the next episode went live :)

1.       The Sinner –
Watched in a day…a day I tell you. I had the numbest bum after, but it was worth it. Jessica Biel is the main character and she kills a man, unprovoked and doesn’t know why. From this moment on I began to suspect anyone and everyone, and it went on like that for the whole series…I had my theories like she was previously abused, so it set her off in a frenzy and other ideas. I always seem to have a certain kind of sympathy for the mental struggles characters like this go through and Jessica Biel played the part so well, I was hooked until the end from the first episode.



2.       Mindhunter –
I didn’t know the term “serial killer” was coined in the 70’s until I watched this show, may I add in 3-4 days : ) I do love a show set in a time gone by and this being set in the 70’s didn’t disappoint. It’s basically a who’s who of serial killers, with the likes of Manson, Brudos, Kemper, Speck and many more. Some of whom I had never been that too familiar with and now I could tell you all about them, I admit the show took me a bit longer to watch as I had to keep pausing to google all about the real life serial killers 0_0 I mean it’s not pretty, but its mind numbing the crimes that they undertook. The FBI agents in the show interview the serial killers (which was unheard of and pretty much thought weird in those days) to try and understand why they do what they do from a science/psychological perspective. I was fully gripped from episode 2, so bear with the first 2 episodes as its much better after that!


Some other shows that are very similar to these, that I also recommend I have listed below. But once you start you will get hooked I am tellin you ….

Bates Motel
Alias Grace
13 Reasons Why
The Jinx
Making a Murderer
The Keepers


If you already have watched these programs, then I would love to know and discuss what you thought of them :) or if you plan to watch any of them also let me know!

#SKINCARE | Nip+Fab - You NEED this scrub if you want smaller pores!



This is the first time I have used any product from NIP+FAB, and as any skincare product or brand I try for the first time I'm always unsure of how it will work with my skin. Obviously when you read reviews of products its from someone's personal use and doesn't always mean it will work the same on your own, but  I believe this product could help out a lot of skin problems. Everyone needs to exfoliate so the old skin shifts and the new skin has life :) this product is honestly now my holy grail.....like I'm Holly Golightly when she finally finds the cat with no name after all the emotional torture of not knowing where he is! (such a dramatic comparison but we'll go with it aha)

I bought it when it was on offer for £6 something and I believe its £9 normally, but truly its worth the £9 ; when my one runs out I definitely will be buying another. As you can see from the photo its a sort of white paste, with the exfoliating bits in it. I massage it all over my face and leave it for 1 minute and then I add water and massage again and then rinse off. You will not believe how soft and levelled out your skin feels as SOON as you wash it off!!!

Its not only an immediate affect scrub but it also has long lasting results. As you must know by now I always tell you how I have larger pores than I like, after using this scrub for a couple of weeks now about 3x  week I have notices the difference in the size of my pores! Where the scrub gets deep into the pores it really helps to cleanse them and make them less noticeable


Besides all the good stuff like IT ACTAULLY WORKS, the smell is the dreamiest thing ever. It is a grapefruit scented scrub which just seems to put me in such a happy mood, it wakes up my senses and my skin. I cant stop touching my face ^-^

( 3% glycolic acid and salicylic acids to refine, brighten + renew)

Please, just give it a shot if you suffer with large pours, blemishes and blackheads then use it a couple times a week and if you have normal, dry or sensitive skin then I would say use it 2x a week. You wont regret it.

Anyone recommend any other products from NIP+FAB, as its now a brand I trust :)
