Myza – the go to store for getting a fabulous night sleep

We spend around one third of our lives sleeping and it’s one of the most important things for maintaining our health and wellbeing. I’m one of those people that needs a full 8 hours a night to be able to function properly. As soon as I come home from work, I am straight into my pyjamas. I feel that it’s important to relax as much as possible in the evening ready for a good nights sleep. There is literally nothing nicer than treating yourself to a brand new luxury set of nightwear or loungewear. And isn’t it just the best feeling when you stay in a boutique hotel and there is a fluffy dressing gown waiting for you! This is really easy to recreate that little bit of luxury in your own home for every day.

I recently came across the website Myza and they specialise in gorgeous products that are all designed for creating a lovely relaxing sleep. Just looking through the website makes me feel chilled out! There is something for everyone on here, whether its a treat for yourself or a beautiful gift for someone else. If you know someone who has been stressed out lately or perhaps a pregnant friend or someone who has been having trouble sleeping, what a thoughtful gift that would be to make a little package of items to help them relax better!

Nightwear

There are some really pretty Pyjama sets and gorgeous cosy dressing gowns to choose from by various designers. I particularly like the Nightire collection as the bold prints and designs are just my kind of style. There are classic pyjama outfits as well as cute little short versions and so you have an option for if it is warmer or for a colder time of the year. If you want something really luxurious though, there is also a beautiful silk range by the brand Ronja which is really chic.

Body Products

What better way to relax before going to sleep than having a relaxing pampering session? You guys know me and I love skincare and body products and I’m impressed by the varied selection on Myza. There are a variety of brands with products ranging from face masks, soothing body oils, lotions and creams.  Again, there is a great section to choose beautiful gifts in this section. I particularly like the 1001 remedies set which you can find HERE. 

The majority of the beauty products contain natural ingredients that help to aid a relaxing experience which sounds heavenly.

Cosy Homewear

Of course the other best way to relax is with beautiful bedding and cosy comforting linens or pillows. Especially now we are moving into the colder seasons, you cannot beat lovely warm blankets to curl up in and watch a good Netflix series or two! I love buying things for my home so this is a really nice way to get something functional that also looks good and accessorises your bedroom or lounge.

Accessories

If you just want to try out a little item as a treat then there are a lot of really lovely accessories to choose from. I absolutely love the eye masks I am going to have to get one of these for myself. They are made from 100% silk which will feel beautiful and cool against the delicate eye area. Also it’s well known that silk helps to reduce the pulling of the skin, which in turn helps to reduce the creation of wrinkles. This particular accessory would also be fabulous for a flight or long train journey somewhere.

I am also really intrigued by the selection of relaxing teas. I can just imagine having one of these in the evening with a nice book before settling down for a gorgeous relaxing sleep. Divine.

3 body products that are perfect if you have a sweet tooth

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I’m obsessed with body products that smell like sweets at the moment. I recently reviewed a gorgeous bubblegum flavoured lip scrub from Lush Cosmetics here and my love for sweet treats has continued to grow! I have been testing out a few brands and these are my top 3 body products for the month that are all sweet themed. If you have a sweet tooth like I do, then I can guarantee you will enjoy using these too!

Bilou body wash shower foams

I hadn’t used a shower foam before and I really enjoyed trying this! It is exactly like a shaving foam consistency and has a similar nozzle on the can. There are 5 flavours available – Fuzzy berry, Coco Cocktail, Cotton Candy, Tasty Donut and Pink Melon. The scent is more on the subtle side but it’s something a little different and a really nice sweet treat.
Priced at £3.99 each, these are also super affordable and fun to try out. You can buy these from most Superdrug stores or online here

Baylis & Harding hand washes

As soon as I spotted these I instantly fell in love with the pretty packaging. How pretty are these?! I could picture the bottles displayed in my bathroom or kitchen and they are such a sweet little addition to have by your sink.

I was really impressed at how fragrant these are as well. They smell absolutely beautiful and they leave a long lasting scent on the skin which I love. Out of the three that I tried, the Tropical Cocktail version is my favourite and it smells just like watermelon. Delicious!

Imperial Leather gel shower washes

I had to pick these up as soon as I saw them as they were giving me pure nostalgia about retro sweets from my childhood. They smell exactly like the real thing too and are literally good enough to eat.
Priced at only £1 per bottle, these were such a bargain and a really affordable little treat. I have received so many comments on these on Instagram and from being noticed on my bathroom shelf. They seem to make everyone smile! So, I think these would make great Christmas stocking fillers for someone that loves their sweets.
These are part of a great collection of gel body washes that Imperial Leather has out at the moment and they have some fab scents to choose from. You can buy these from most Boots stores or online.

Prepare your skin for Autumn with Lush Cosmetics

I admit that I haven’t been into a Lush store for a while as I mainly just associated them with their famous bath bomb products. However I visited the Brighton branch recently and I have to say that I have completely fallen in love with them!

As soon as you walk in the door of any Lush store the beautiful fragrances hit you straight away and this has become one of their signature traits. As I was walking around the store, I was really impressed with the huge variety of products from hair care, to skin care to body products and had such fun testing all of the samples. I hadn’t appreciated how many products that they offer.

    

I could have walked out of the store with bags of gorgeous items, but I picked out 2 products which particularly caught my eye that I was so excited to use and they certainly did not disappoint! I chose a pot of bubblegum flavoured lip scrub and a very unusual body scrub.

Lip scrub

You really have to smell this yourself to believe it. I’m not exaggerating when I say that it’s absolutely divine and just like the real thing! This little pot was only £6.50 and part of a collection of other flavours including Mint, Chocolate and honey so if you have a sweet tooth like I do, then I can guarantee you will enjoy these. I seem to be reaching for body products at the moment that are all sweet themed but at least it’s saving me on overindulging in real calories!

As we are transitioning into the Autumn season, I felt that it was a good time to get a lip scrub as when the weather changes I know that I will start to get chapped lips. This is also going to help to combat the dryness that you can get from wearing matt lipsticks or being in air conditioning during the day like I am.

This lip scrub is a great way to prep the lips by gently buffing and polishing away any dead skin cells and will keep them looking plump and healthy, as well as creating the perfect base for lipsticks. There are only 6 ingredients that are used to make this product. 2 natural (caster sugar and organic jojoba oil) and 4 others which make up the colour and flavouring but these are all safe synthetic ingredients.

Scrub Scrub Scrub

This body scrub is a brand new product on the market and it’s so unusual I just had to try it out! This body scrub is made up of black exfoliating crystals and I have never seen anything quite like this before. You don’t normally associate bath products that look like this but don’t let that put you off as it’s absolutely incredible. The lady in the store joked that it looks like it will clean the depths of your soul which made me laugh as it is definitely different.

As soon as I opened the lid the smell was beautiful and a rich mixture between blackberries and a kind of almost menthol scent. The crystals are actually infused with toning rosemary, grounding pine and refreshing buchu oils so that explains the aromatherapy type fragrance that this product has.

Powdered charcoal is also one of the key ingredients (hence the colour) and this is perfect for deeply cleaning the skin, leaving it with a great glow as well as having antibacterial properties.

The texture of charcoal is soft and dry which helps to exfoliate and cleanse so you will find this often in toothpaste products. There are a few jet black charcoal toothpastes that are available on the market at the moment and I have been seeing these in the stores and on Instagram.

An interesting fact about Lush is that they don’t use imported charcoal for their products. They use a UK based supplier as they are campaigners of encouraging and supporting local industries. Another key ingredient to mention in this scrub is sea salt. This is fantastic for softening and hydrating the skin, removing dead skin sells without stripping away too much natural oils.

I love the way my skin felt after using this and the deep, rich scent stayed on my skin for quite a long time which was really lovely. I feel that this is a great Autumn/Winter bath product and is going to help to keep my skin in excellent condition as the colder weather sets in. Also, if you are a fake tan fan like I am, this is also a great product to prep the skin before tan is applied.

Final thoughts about Lush

I love how this brand is all about ethical products and that everything is animal cruelty free and 100% vegetarian. Their packaging is all the same uniformed look which can be slightly confusing when trying to browse in the store. However, if you take your time and look into each product, the information is all there printed on the outside. If you have any questions though the staff are really knowledgeable and happy to talk about the products. Another cute detail is that every pot has a picture of who made the product. Everything is handmade and I think that’s a lovely little touch.

The last thing I have to mention is the fabulous pre-wrapped gifts that you can buy in Lush. I hadn’t realised this and will definitely be considering this in the future. I am a complete stationary addict and to see all of the beautiful gift wrap and selections that have been put together was really exciting. I am a sucker for good packaging!

I had such a great experience visiting Lush and will definitely be returning! Do you have any favourite Lush products? Leave me a comment below with any recommendations!

An afternoon at Jo Malone

The iconic branded cream box, wrapped in black grosgrain ribbon and the crisp black tissue paper inside that has been spritzed with one of their beautiful scents. This is just one of my favourite parts of shopping at Jo Malone. Known for their elegance and style, Jo Malone is a British brand, specialising in fragrance, candles and beautiful, body products.

I spent such a lovely afternoon at the Brighton store this weekend trying out the products. You are always welcomed by such friendly and professional staff in Jo Malone stores and it really adds to the whole high end, luxury shopping experience. In the middle of the store there is a table displaying samples of each scent for you to try and let me tell you, choosing a favourite is no easy task.

We were seated at the back section of the store which was decorated in the usual monochrome styling that they are so well recognised for. My mum and I were treated to a complimentary glass of British sourced bubbly and a beautiful hand and arm massage testing out a selection of products. The staff are so knowledgeable and it was really interesting to learn about the huge range of scents and ingredients that are available. Even the names of the scents are fabulously decadent – how could anyone be able to resit smelling of Lime Basil & Mandarin, Orange Blossom, or Peony & blush suede?!

Overall we both felt amazing when we left the store with our new goodies. My skin felt soft, pampered and smelled gorgeous. I learned today that using a body cream together with a perfume layered on the top makes such a difference and a much longer lasting scent. You can also mix and match different fragrances to create your own bespoke design as the scents work together rather than clashing.

I chose a body and hand wash in one of Jo Malone’s best selling classic scents Pomegranate Noir. This is the description that can be found on their website for this particular product which is absolutely divine:

Our refreshing Body & Hand Wash with meadow foam seed gently cleanses and deliciously scents your skin with enigmatic Pomegranate Noir. Ruby-rich juices of pomegranate, raspberry and plum are spiked with pink pepper and laced with Casablanca lily and spicy woods. The enhanced formula helps leave body and hands feeling conditioned and soft. Its crystal clear gel transforms into a rich lather and its uplifting fragrance fills the bathroom, immersing you in delicate scent.

For those who haven’t shopped at Jo Malone before, you can full their full collection here.
