I wasn't going to do another post but this is just too exciting not to mention.

...A few weeks ago one of our kittens went missing and we had no idea what happened to it, then today when my daddy and I were outside we heard a cat meowing extremely loudly so, of course, went to investigate! The sound was coming from a vacated barn conversion across the road that used to house tonnes of wild cats, so we expected to find a rather large stray. I tapped the front window and saw the upstairs curtain move and who appeared but my kitten!

I was so happy that she was alive! I had preyed everyday for the three weeks that she was missing, but there was a problem, how to get her out! Firstly, we had no idea how she got inside in the first place unless a door was open. We noticed a new letter box and padlocks on the door so that could only mean she was locked in by the people that changed them! (An RSPCA report will be filed if I find out who!) Her cries were so loud it was heartbreaking to hear :(

Eventually we found a hole in some boarding covering a window and she came to our voices. When we got her out she was skin and bone! We most certainly found her in the nick of time! We assume she had been living on mice otherwise she wouldn't be alive, but she recognised us and was almost tripping me as we brought walked her back across the road to our house.

We took turns making sure she was doing ok, she was eating and drinking well and just wanted a snuggle, so seems on the way to recovery :) (Her meow is so loud that even the older "boss" cats were scared of her!)

Her brother seemed content to welcome her back, however her mummy and sister were hissing at her, (most likely because of how loud she was and her smell,) but I'm hoping they will soon accept her back into the family as they were all so close before.

I knew in my heart that she was still alive, I'm very close to any pets we have but more so the cats, they seem to gravitate towards me, (especially the mummy as she wouldn't go near anyone else (she was wild when she brought her newborn kittens to us)). We've had other cats disappear, which they usually do when they're older and find somewhere to rest for the last time, and I subconsciously know when this has happened. I sent all the energy I could to the universe and the gods to find her because she had to still be in this relm and she was :)

Mog back on my knee where she belongs :)

See Ya!

I'm going off on holidays for a week tomorrow so won't be doing any more posts until I'm back. I'm not going far, just to the north coast of Northern Ireland but we have many fun activities planned; body boarding, surfing, visiting National Trust sites as well as other things we'll find to do along the way. I'm also glad to be going back to Blue Moon, a sort of metaphysical shop in Portrush which sells beautiful clothing and jewellery as well as books, incense, CDs and a whole array of other pagan-y stuff!

I'll be taking LOADS of pictures so I can share my experiences, some old and some new (hopefully), so until then, Blessed Be! xx

p.s. I hope everyone has had/is having/is yet to have a wonderful holiday, I'd love to know what you get up too when you have some time off, so let me know!

Quick Pic!

Just wanted to share another snap of the moon.

It was taken from inside and with a flash but it was just outside my balcony doors and I thought it was beautiful :) I tried to get a picture of the moon a few nights ago as it was red and very low down at the horizon but the flash messed it up. Although here's a lovely picture just before sunrise, (I don't tend to sleep in the summer.) Again through the glass doors, but the view from my room never fails to impress me,

Reviews Galore!

Ok so, I've accquired a lot of products and haven't reviewed very many, (some samples I've yet to use) but I've nothing better to do so I might aswell get stuck in or I'll never get it done! This will be a review of just random products from Love Lula. So... I shall begin!

Lavera Intense Volumising Mascara

I have quite sensitive eyes which can react easily to mascara so I was happy to try a natural one that would be more gentle on my eyes. Firstly, I LOVE the brush, (it reminds me of Benefit's Bad Gal mascara,) the fact it has bristles and is not made of rubber/plastic as so many mascaras are these days is a bonus as I hate them!

As far as how the product actually works, it did make my eyelashes longer and more defined, and quite a bit thicker. The only downside to this product is that it isn't available in a waterproof version, which I would like as my eyes water if I even smile never mind crying while I laugh, (don't ask!) Overall I think it's just your average mascara.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Alcohol*, Stearic Acid, Besswax (Cera Alba)*, Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters, Algin, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil*, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Liquorice) Root Extract*, Silk (Serica), Shellac, Jojoba Esters , HippopHae Rhamnoides Fruit Extract*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, TocopHerol, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Butter*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil*, Camelina Sativa Seed Oil, Vegetable Oil (Olus Oil), Hydrogenated Lecithin, Tilia Cordata Flower Extract*, Rosa Centifolia Flower Extract *, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Flower Extract*, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Fragrance (Parfum)**, Citronellol**, Geraniol**, Limonene**, Linalool**, [+/- Iron Oxides (Ci 77499), Ultramarines (Ci 77007)]  (* ingredients from certified organic agriculture)

Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Original Foundation SPF15
I was able to get a free "make under", as it is called in the world of bareMinerals, with a coupon from 30 Days of Fashion & Beauty last September, which I brought to my nearest bareMinerals counter and I fell in love! I've been looking this foundation ever since but as it is quite costly I kept putting it off. Love Lula had a £5 discount code which could be used in July, (as this month marks their 5th birthday!) So I decided to treat myself and I'm so glad I did! Although I'm still looking for the perfect brush, (the bareMinerals brushes are just as expensive as the foundation) the technique is easy with any face or powder brush and a little goes a long way. There are 11 shades available for all types of colourings with specific undertones; I chose the palest shade "Fair" which is for the lightest porcelain skin with cool neutral undertones, (my skin has more golden/yellow undertones but the next shade wasn't light enough in colour.) It worked wonders for evening out my skin tone, as any discolouration shows up quite easily because my skin is so light; it's just like having another layer of beautiful dewy, natural looking skin, and the best thing is... it doesn't look like you're wearing any makeup! (A key feature I think all foundation show achieve.) The added SPF of 15 is also an added bonus as my current moisturiser does not contain any SPF. My only critique is that the starter kits only have 4 shades available, which contain all you need to get introduced to the brand, leaving many people missing out on saving money if they want to buy all the products but have to do so separately. However, I'm looking forward to buying more mineral makeup, not just from this brand but from others that have caught my eye.

Ingredients: Zinc Oxide (CI 77947), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163), Mica (CI 77019), Iron Oxides (CI 77489, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499)

Badger Unscented Healing Lip Balm

I managed to misplace my Badger Vanilla Madagascar Lip Balm while I was out, (either that or it's fallen down the side of my bed :/), so I bought a new one, this time the unscented version, and to be honest I'm not really sure why I did. To begin with I thought it was great, a lip balm that actually worked! But after repeated use I've found it's not working as well as I had originally hoped. This is the first Badger product that has disappointed me, which I'm quite sad about as I love the brands other products. (which you will see in a moment!) Again, like the other products in the brand, there's a herbal undertone although it is "unscented", but I think I shall have to return to my quest of finding the perfect lip balm for me.

Ingredients: *Extra Virgin Olive Oil, *Beeswax, *Castor Oil, *Rosemary. (* = Certified Organic Ingredient)

Badger Cuticle Care & Foot Balm Duo


Badger Balms have never failed to impress me, (apart from the lip balms.) This combo is a dream for hands and feet that need some TLC and are quickly outshining other lotions I have!

Badger Cuticle Care
As a piano/keyboard and guitar player, it's safe to say my nails get a lot of battering on a daily basis. They grow extremely fast but are very brittle so break and peel easily. I rub this into my cuticles, on the nail itself and the area around it on nights that I have removed polish so they are soothed and healthy after being in contact with acetone, (I'm soon to switch to a non acetone remover) and before being re-polished, giving them a chance to rest and repair. This balm is a lot thicker and most easily melted than the other balms. There are bubbles throughout the balm which are caused by the shea which gives it soothing and restorative properties. 

Ingredients: *Wild African Shea Butter, *Extra Virgin Olive Oil, *Castor Oil, *Golden Yellow Beeswax, *Seabuckthorn Berry Extract, and Essential Oils of *Geranium, *Ginger, *Cardamom, *Rosemary, *Litsea Cubeba, *Mandarin & *Lemongrass. (* = Certified Organic Ingredient)
Badger Foot Balm
I walk around in my bare feet more than I wear shoes or socks, it's just so natural for me. Unfortunately this means the bottom of my feet are more like a hobbit's than those from a sandal add :( (I don't know how people cared for there feet before shoes were invented?!) Before trying this balm I was using Boots Gorgeous Feet Cracked Heel Repair which was AMAZING! I was stunned at how soft the skin on my feet was over night, never mind "visible results in just 3 days", it is a miracle product. I thought to myself wouldn't it be great if I could get something that was as good as this but was natural... and voila! Badger Foot Balm just happens to exist. Firstly, the smell doesn't do it justice; it's not THAT off putting but it's not the nicest of smells, (I love the smell of the Boots moisturiser) however, it works just as well which is what I was hoping for. I put it on after getting out of the shower or bath, then put on some cuddly bed socks to lock in the effects and I wake up in the morning with lovely soft soles!

Ingredients: *Extra Virgin Olive Oil, *Castor Oil, *Jojoba Oil, *Golden Yellow Beeswax, and Essential Oils of *Rosemary, *Peppermint *Balsam Fir, *Eucalyptus, *Tea Tree & *Cardamom. (* = Certified Organic Ingredient)

NOTD: Nails Of The Day!

Today's colour is... O.P.I.'s Can You Tapas This?

at night with indoor lighting and camera flash

Well actually I've had this on for a few days hence the white nail tips, (my nails grow so fast!) It's a sort of dark red-brown colour; reminds me a bit of BBQ sauce. I used a base coat, one coat of polish and a top coat. Usually I use 2 coats so the colour is more opaque, but I just wasn't in the mood for waiting around for my nails to dry and I wanted to get this up before I change the colour tomorrow. I'm not sure if I like it or not, I'm a fan of dark colours but it's kind of strange, sometimes it's more red, others it's brown and it even has a purplish raisin tone to it. Maybe with another coat I could get a better idea of it's full potential but until then I'm undecided!

p.s. I've noticed that I'm all about natural and organic products at the minute and haven't been able to find any nail polishes in this category however, O.P.I are one brand that are part of the "3 free" bandwagon. These are brands whose lacquers are free of the 3 toxic chemicals that were once found in most nail polishes, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde & Toluene. The Body Shop products are also not entirely natural or organic but responsibly source their ingredients from Community Trade farmers and growers which ensures ingredients are grown in a traditional and time honoured way as well as providing growers with long-term, stable incomes. You can read more about this here.

Pai Skincare Review!

I bought trial sizes of Pai's cleanser and one of their skin creams and have been using them both for over a month so thought it was about time for a review. Firstly, these products have lasted for a very long time, even now they're not even half gone! Secondly, they have quite a strong floral smell at first, which you get used to after a few uses. The smell doesn't last on the skin however, it fades as you rub it in.

Pai Camellia & Rose Organic Cleanser

I used this at night about once a week by massaging it into my skin, leaving for a while so it could get to work, then removing it with warm, damp cotton pads then I splashed my face with cooler water to close the pores. I didn't use it that often only because I always forget about doing my night time skincare routine (or there's something really good on tv), but from the times I have used this product it has been lovely. It leaves skin soft, smooth and it feels hydrated, not tight like I find other cream or milk cleansers do. I will most likely buy some more trial sizes before deciding for certain if I will make this my new evening cleanser.

Ingredients rose water*, water, camellia oil*, castor oil*, sweet almond oil*, coconut and corn-derived emulsifier, shea butter*, vegetable glycerine*, natural vitamin e, corn extract, manuka oil, rosemary extract*, basil extract, lavender oil*, geranium oil*, may chang oil*, rose oil*, lactic acid. (*Certified organic ingredient. This organic cleanser is certified organic by the Soil Association under their organic beauty standards.)

Pai Organic Chamomile & Rosehip Sensitive Skin Cream

Like my hair my skin doesn't know what it's at! As I'm a teenager my skin is more combination, not just of oily and dry but of sensitive too. After a year of being ill my skin had taken the toll, becoming extremely pale and often very dry with patches of discolouration and pigmentation, particularly on my cheeks. Areas like my forehead and between my eyebrows can get very dry and flaky, (which is rather annoying) but can end up quite oily by the end of the day. This skin cream has definitely helped my skin dilemma. As I've mentioned, I've barely used any so a little goes along way even though the cream is quite thick at first it melts on contact with the skin to cover a large area. I find most moisturisers to be too heavy, where they stay on the skin for a long time or too light, so they are not able to moisturise the dry parts as well as I would like them to. This product is in the middle; it's thick enough the moisturise anywhere that really needs it but still absorbs quickly into the skin (which is a bonus as I've started wearing mineral foundation.) This was the only skin cream sample I've been able to try so far as others have been out of stock. I'm particularly interested in trying the cream for combination skin to see how it compares, but if I don't think much of it this will be my new staple moisturiser!

Ingredients: purified water, chamomile water*, apricot kernel oil*, corn-based emulsifier, jojoba oil*, rosehip oil*, thistle oil*, shea butter*, vegetable glycerine*, natural vitamin e, chamomile extract*, rosehip seed extract, corn extract, manuka oil*, rosemary antioxidant*, lavender oil*, neroli oil*, rose geranium oil*, basil extract, lactic acid.

New Mini Series!

I was making my usual evening cup of tea and noticed I've collected a rather large amount of samples that I've yet to use. Starting tomorrow I'm going to lay off the Earl Grey, to the best of my ability, and begin a new series called 10 Days of Tea. As a tea enthusiast I love to try new teas so I might as well take you along on my journey through the world of tea. Blessed Be! xx

p.s. I looked out my window when I sat down to the laptop earlier and look what I saw!

Someone's Trying To Tell Me Something!

After seeing those 12 spiders a few nights ago I've been pondering the changes I am currently making and can still make in my life. I hadn't noticed the spiders since then, they were tucked away during the day, and just as I was closing my curtains this evening, there they were again! I counted and it was still 12! I'm having a bit of trouble figuring out what choices I'm meant to be making and how they will affect the web of life, perhaps this is why the message is still being sent to me.

A few weeks ago when I was in an exam a money spider dropped down onto my paper. I find money spiders soo cute because of their size, and fond it strange that it would let itself down on a strand from a ceiling that's two stories high! The chances of it landing on my tiny desk among hundreds was so small I definitely took it as a sign.At the time I assumed it had something to do with my exams as they weren't over, perhaps telling me to make the choice to work harder or revise more, but now that the number and size of the spiders has increased I'm worried that there is an urgent matter to be addressed but I am unable to see what it is. Maybe it's staring me in the face or I'm currently going through it and I'll know which choice is right, but for now I have been left thoroughly perplexed.

Blessed Be! xx

O.P.I Lovin'

I have a new obsession, and it's for nail polish! We're not allowed to wear nail polish at school so I rarely take the risk of getting a lecture, so in the summer my nails are almost always covered, (to the point that they look strange unpolished.) Yesterday my order from Lena White, the online UK stockist of O.P.I, arrived, with 3 new polishes that I treated myself to. With Lughnasadh coming up, the beginning of the harvest and autumn (my favourite season!) I got into the spirit a little early by choosing some autumnal shades, and I love them!

L-R: Here Today... Aragon Tomorrow SUEDE, Can You Tapas This? & Ginger Bells!
 I can't decide which to wear first! Blessed Be! xx

Message From The Universe!

I was out on the balcony this evening having a moment with nature, pets gathered round, (which isn't that odd.) When I turned to go back inside I felt beyond calm and just plain good! Anyway, when I got to my room and was closing the curtains I happened to spot a spider outside in the top corner of the window and as I moved my eyes across I saw another, and another... and another! In total there were 12 spiders, all relatively small, equally spaced out, seemingly of the same breed, individual webs joined. After a moment of pondering this sight I, of course, began researching the meaning.

When spiders appear matters of choice are to be addressed; how your choices are affecting the web of life, the people in it and how can they improve this grand design? As there were twelve in total I of course believed this to be a serious matter to address, it definitely caught my attention! Twelve is a number used so commonly but the reason is unknown; there are 12 months in a year, 12 signs of the zodiac, two sets of 12 hours in a day, 12 inches in a foot. Twelve is said to be a number of space and time. It corresponds to the Hanged Man Tarot which represents letting go of troublesome parts of your being so you can just be.

I believe that together this message means to sacrifice the things that act as a hindrance to better help the earth, other people and myself. We're all in this world together, to take care of it, appreciate it, and to live as one universal being. Like the spiders weave a magnificent web, we too should work together to make this world an ideal home, where we can live together in peace, harmony. We rely on the earth and other people as they rely on us, no matter what race, religion, age or gender, each choice we make affects every living energy around us. Know that the actions you perform, for good or bad, have equal reactions, so be sure you can live with the consequences.

Blessed Be! xx

Quick Pic!

I was looking out over the side of the house this evening and just remembered about the picture I took on midsummer night;

The river runs a few fields over, and I'm always captivated when mists come off it. I think one of the most breath taking and mysterious sights of nature have been on a winter's night; trees bare, a full moon with whisps of cloud and fog moving eerily closer to my house. It feels like a scene from a supernatural or horror movie and I love it!

Hopefully when it is winter again I can take a picture and share it's magnificence (if my camera picks it up that is). I'm always grateful to live in the countryside as it gives me the oppurtunity to witness the undisturbed energy and beauty of mother earth, (meteor showers and planets included!) Blessed Be! xx

John Masters Organics Review

I think I am in love... with hair products! My hair has grown so much in the past few years, (and is far longer than I think it is), so it needs all the care it can get. I've tried a few samples of the John Masters Organics hair products and have to say they are great! The full sized products are quite expensive but are definitely worth their price.

John Masters Organics Evening Primrose Shampoo for Dry Hair
I'm not one to use products for dry hair, when I was younger anything for dry hair would leave mine greasy, so I was wary about adding this sample but there were not other samples I wanted to try so I gave it a go, and boy am I glad I did! I used it with the lavender & avocado conditioner and it left my hair so moisturised, but not greasy. The quality of my hair has changed as it has grown, (it's about waist length now), the ends can be very dry so I wash my hair less often and let it air dry, but this doesn't make it greasy. The smell was quite overwhelming at first but it wasn't over unbearable,  if you don't mind floral and herbal scents that is. All in all I think this is another trustworthy product from a brilliant company!

John Masters Honey & Hibiscus Hair Reconstructing Shampoo & Hair Reconstructor

I used these products together, (as intended) and was very impressed by the results! Again I was cautious about whether they would leave my hair greasy, but the following day even my roots were fine! Like the primrose shampoo the smell is quite strong, but not unpleasant. My hair was in need of some TLC and these delivered. Like all the products I have tried, the quality is evident across the brand. This is one brand that I will come back to time and time again! Blessed Be! xx
