A Green Beauty Haul

I know what you must be thinking: 'WengYee, what happened to your New Year's resolutions?' Well, does it count that I ordered (nearly) all of these just before the new year started? The longer I blog and get to understand beauty products, the more I tend to steer away from chemical products and try to embrace the natural. Over the past few years I've been slowly (and I really mean slowly) integrating some bits and bobs in my routine and I think 2015 may be my year. And perhaps the year of green beauty? Anyone?

Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm

Omorovicza has always been an uber-luxe Hungarian spa brand in my mind. Products infused with Hungary’s mineral-rich healing water and naturally sourced ingredients, all packaged in heavy glass packaging accompanied by a hefty price tag. Living on a student loan doesn't exactly allow me to indulge in such luxury products, but having generous parents does. After gushing about Omorovicza's Thermal Cleansing Balm to my mum, the deed was done and I received this lil' pot of goodness for Christmas.

The Product I Recently Fell In Love With

Indie Lee has been a brand I've always been meaning to try, but I never got around to trying for whatever reason. One day I was just browsing around to seek something new and their Squalene Oil grabbed my attention – I just had to get it. Maybe it was the free shipping promo or maybe it was the fact that my skin was a mess and I needed something to comfort me. Whatever it was, I'm so glad that I finally bit the bullet, 'cause it's awesome.

(Not) Feeling The Monday Blues

So iCal told me it's Blue Monday today, and according to a quick Google search, it is supposedly the most depressing day of the year. Why? Because someone decided it is. That being said, something blue that still brings a slight smile to my face are my new ZARA pointed-toe pumps in blue python print. Aren't they just gorgeous? Perfect to wear them down, paired with rolled up jeans and a simple blouse or look super sophisticated when worn with a nice (and simple) dress. Oh the choices!

An Other Story, An Other Candle

Can we all take a minute to appreciate the utter Scandinavian gorgeousness that's in front of our eyes? Yes? Thank you. When I booked my ticket to fly back to Amsterdam, the first thing on my to-do list was to visit & Other Stories. My weekly hang out spot when I still lived in London, so I couldn't be more excited when they finally opened their doors on my home-turf! Aside from great streamlined and simplistic clothes, shoes and jewellery, they recently brought out a candle range. Being a big lover on candles and the store, I had to try these. And okay, the packaging played a role as well...

The 'Magic' Soap

You know those products everyone seems to love and talk about and you're just like: meh? Well, Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap was something like that for me. I won't lie, it did slightly intrigue me – how could it not – however the packaging and price tag left me uninterested and I just carried on living my life, cleaning my make up brushes with Olive Oil and baby shampoo. That was until I found this bar of soap when I was doing a winter clean of my beauty drawers and decided to give it a go. And I get the craze, I totally get it.
