Bubbles and Chocolate

It's been a long couple of weeks, so spending the day with my favourite two things - bubbles and chocolate - was exactly what I needed.

Firstly, I got to try out the new Toblerone. It's one of my all time favourite chocolates and the new packaging is out in time for Valentine's Day. Aptly named 'You're my Number One', it is less chunky and comes in a triangle shape. It still has the same great taste!

There is also a 'To My Love' bar, perfect for couples to share (or eat it all for yourself if you're like me).
Both are out on the 2nd February 2015, so keep an eye open.

I also headed out for Afternoon Tea courtesy of Echo Falls. Mainly known as a wine brand, they've branched out and created a Zero Alcohol Sparking Infusion. It contains no alcohol, perfect for anyone on a health kick. It contains fermented grape juice and green tea infusion - and the combination is so delicious. It's strong and sweet, and has a refreshing taste.

Also, each glass is just 26 calories - so perfect if you've been over indulging recently - like I have. It's a great alternative to alcohol and other fizzy drinks to have and the gorgeous bottle will look great on any bar or shelf.

Rainbow Club shoes

My first outfit post in quite some time. I did come down with something a lot more serious than what I first thought I had, and between that and constantly being on the go, my body did decide to give me a warning. I'm more or less recovered now, so hopefully I can show my face again.

I got this dress for a wedding last year and definitely need more of an opportunity to wear it. I love how it fits and pretty much everything else about it. I need more friends to get married: *hint hint*

And these shoes are to die for. I gave you guys a sneak peak last week, but here they are in action. They're from the Rainbow Club, who focus on white satin bridal shoes. They do have a colour studio however, It allows your to customise any shoe on the site with any colour you want. Having them in different colours allows you to have unique shoes that can be worn to many different occasions.
I chose the Antonia shoes and really love the diamante on them.

What Skin Needs - Beauty Review

For those that don't know, today is Australia Day. So what better opportunity to look into some new Australian beauty products.
I recently came across 'What Skin Needs' - an Australian skincare brand that's perfect for sensitive skin. While my skin isn't really sensitive, it is still a bit and I do have various scars and skin allergies.

What Skin Needs is a natural skincare solution that helps with the likes of irritation from cold weather, dry skin, cracked skin, and skin issues such as eczema. The ingredients are natural and includes Plantolin (a plant extract) that helps to soothe and protect skin. These products also protect skin cells from damage and promotes natural skin cell renewal.

I got the chance to try out a few products and I'm a fan.
First up was the 'Cracked Skin Cream', perfect for rough and damaged skin, particularly in areas such as heels and elbows. I do have quite dry elbows and wearing high heels has not been kind to my feet, so I've really been using this. It actually works pretty well and my rough areas seem a lot softer.

I also had the 'Skin Balm'. This looks like it might be a saving grace for any one who has dry skin, rashes or severe irritations. This cream helps to revive skin and reduce irritations. Again, it's a really soft cream and works well in helping the skin renew itself.

Finally, the 'Soothing Skin Gel'. This is more of a relieving solution, helping with the likes of sun damage and windburn. It uses natural ingredients to protect chapped skin. It's great for dealing with the after exposure to the elements. I'm off on a sunny holiday in a few weeks time, and I often become sun burnt, so this is definitely coming on holiday with me.

If you do have sensitive or damaged skin, I definitely recommend this brand. Give it a look and the products will definitely help soothe any skin issues.
