I am sure I do not have to begin this post by telling you of the complete devastation Japan suffered on and after the terrible events of March this year, one can only imagine what these people have gone through.

Whilst browsing in Lush I came across these limited edition Japanese Aid Soaps.
Designed in the shape of the Japanese flag this soap has the coconut scent of another named 'I Should Coco' that lingers on your skin after use, containing ingredients such as coconut oil, orange oil and coriander oil.

A slice of this soap costs £5 all of which goes to a charity called Peace Boat who,

'are organising teams of volunteers, transporting aid goods and cooking hot meals in the disaster zone.'

A lovely idea by Lush I thought and one I wanted to share.

I have commenced a search for the perfect sandal/wedge! A key trend this Summer and with the season fast approaching ( though you wouldn't know it with the constant rain!) I seek to find the perfect wear with everything pair for to accessorise a pretty summer dress or a pair of jeans.

With so many to chose from I thought a blog post might assist my decision making process.

 Sam Edelman Nude Kellan Lace Up Cut Out Wedge  - £196

Straight from the wonder that is so very out of my price budget but beautiful all the same so elegant and classy.

Juniper Espadrille Wedge Sandal French Connection -  £120
I looove these! Exactly what I had pictured I wanted. A little pricey again maybe and perhaps a little too high
         for everyday wear?

   Love Label Norton Two Part Wedge Sandals  - £40
                                                 Again another great price! Like the high fashion look these ones have!
Tan Gladiator Espadrilles Next  - £45
Like these perhaps a tiny bit bias as I love Next shoes at the moment! Only thing I wonder has the gladiator trend been done?

                  Peacocks  Wedge Sandal - £28

A real bargain and a major contender!
Only thing I hesitate on is the colour, a darker tan than I had imagined.
Is more than one pair of tan wedges in a girls wardrobe out of the question? :)

I have heard many a mention of the Soap n Glory product range but it was never something I had got around to trying. However the lovely Boots were doing a delightful 3 for 2 offer so i figured that was reason enough to cure my curiousity.
Upon casting my eyes over what seemed an endless number of products i came across the newest additions , a skin care range.
I purchased ‘Scrub your Nose in It’ and ‘Glow Job’ the names make me giggle such a clever and quirky marketing tool.
Normally i am very reluctant to buy skin products other than what i have been using  for years. Ive had a lot of problems with my skin in the past and it reacts to almost anything new i use but i havent yet experienced any problems after several weeks of use.
Scrub your Nose In It, is a face scrub that can also be used as a mask. The product has a beautiful minty aroma and means to ‘refine large pores and prevent blemishes’.
I think it is fabulous!! I use it 2/3 times week and i am left with that deep clean face sensation and i have noticed my skin is less oily after use.
Glow Job is a moisturiser that has micro bronzer beads. I selected this product to try for i was getting fed up wearing heavy foundation to work everyday and wanted a cheaper alternative!
I have definitely found it. When rubbed together between your fingers the beads burst and release tan so you get a sort of tinted moisturiser effect. It doesn’t give u a deep colour, more of a subtle glow, but a swipe of bronzer on top is my solution. Its a product i also think i would take on holiday to wear once ive caught a bit of sun.
These are two great products that i highly recommend trying and have helped me begin a new addiction to the world of Soap And Glory products that i feel will only worsen from hereafter.
They have a great website also that I discovered the other day if you wish to take a peek
