What I Got For Christmas/Recent Buys!

I thought I'd combine my Christmas gifts with a few recent purchases as i was kindly given some money for Christmas. So here's my recent buys/Christmas gifts/sales haul! Hope you enjoy and as always no bragging intended,I just love reading these posts so thought I'd do one this year!

My gift from my parents this year was a pair of Dr Martens! EEEEEEE I can't even begin to explain how excited i am to finally have a pair! They were bought from a shop in my town called Sole Trader I'm not sure if there's many around but it's worth checking out if you want a pair of DM's as they're a little bit cheaper than the Dr martens website.

Sweet Things

Introducing Depop- An App for selling and buying clothes/shoes!

Before last week i had never heard of 'Depop' until a fellow youtuber mentioned it in one of her recent hauls! Instantly i downloaded it and I've been addicted to it ever since.So i thought I'd give you guys the heads up on it if you haven't heard about it yet!
The concept of the app is a platform where you can buy/sell and swap items.Much like ebay,but it doesn't involve bidding which makes the whole process a lot quicker! 
The payments are sent through paypal. I love it! 
I highly recommend downloading it (It's free) and trying it out for yourself! 

My user name on there is Aimee Leila and if you want to have a nosey at what I'm selling I've screenshot my depop page. 

Let me know if you make an account and I'll follow you!

DIY-Citrus Sugar Scrub!

(Both pictures are from Google)
Now that the Sun is peaking out from behind the clouds and scaring the rain away,your legs are all of a sudden are taken out of their protective cocoon of tights and trousers and thrust into daylight,squinting and looking, well, a little unloved.But this simple homemade citrus sugar scrub will buff away the winter residue and return your body to its full, moisturised glory.

1 Small organic lemon
1 Small organic lime 
1 cup of organic pure cane sugar
1/2 cup organic coconut oil 
1 Teaspoon organic peppermint essential oil/extract
You can also add extras like mint leaves or lemon/lime peel.

How to make:
Mix the coconut oil,the peppermint oil and juice from both the lemon and lime.
Then pour in the sugar and mix well.
If you want to add your extras, you can do this now.
Transfer the mixture to a clean,dry container or an old jam jar and you're ready to scrub!

Exfoliating is great for polishing off dead skin cells and encouraging new ones to take their place.The oil in the recipe adds a beautiful moistening quality-essential after any exfoliating session!

Don't exfoliate more than once or twice a week as you can damage your skin.And don't do it after shaving as you will be left with red lumps and bumps and not the smooth silkiness you were after!

For more natural beauty treatments you can check out Pampered Perfection
Thank you to for the recipe for this scrub!
I tried it out just before my holiday and it really does do wonders,my legs feel great!
Let me know if you try out this recipe!

Have a wonderful day!

DIY Glowing Skin Summer Face Mask

Recently i was contacted by a lady who works for a spa called Skana in Upstate NY She let me into a few tips and tricks of how to protect your skin in the summer months! Most people are aware of the dangers the sun causes on the skin but not many people know about the bad chemicals found in most sunscreens.She gave me a recipe of a great facemask that protects your skin  for you guys to try out!

The warm summer months are typically when your skin looks its best; however, it's also when your skin probably needs the most care.  Apart from the obvious trauma associated with sun exposure, your skin can also suffer from excess oil buildup, pore blockage, and premature aging.

Fortunately, mother nature also provides a ready-made cure for the ills the sun brings - if you know where to look.  This natural face mask, inspired by Skana Spa of New York resort, Turning Stone, is choc full of antioxidants, which help ward off inflammation, give evenness to your skin, and even help smooth out wrinkles, removing oil and dirt in the process.

Midsummer Bounty Face Scrub
Start by dropping a handful of blueberries - about 1/4 cup - into a blender.  Rough chop 1/4 of a large, ripe tomato, and add that to the blender as well.
Note:  Make sure to wash your produce thoroughly before using to remove all traces of pesticides.

Put the lid on the blender, and pulse gently in 2 second increments, until the blueberries and tomato are fully pureed.  If necessary, scrape down the sides with a spoon, and then pulse again
Transfer the mixture to a small bowl and add 1 teaspoon of apricot kernel oil and 2 to 4 drops of your favorite citrus oil or essence - sweet orange essential oil works especially well.  Stir thoroughly, and transfer to an airtight container for storage.

Because the mixture contains no chemicals or preservatives, it's best used within a few hours of when it's made, although you can store the mask in the fridge for a few days.

How to Use
Start by washing face gently with a gentle exfoliating scrub.  Use your favorite face wash if you have one, or just use a pinch of sugar rubbed onto your palm for a natural alternative.  Rinse your face thoroughly and pat dry.

Open your pores by laying a hot, lightly damp cloth over your face for a few moments.  Apply your summer fruit facial mask liberally to your face and neck, and allow the mixture to sit for about 20 minutes.

Note:  If you've refrigerated the mixture for storage, it's best to allow it to warm back up to room temperature before use.

After 20 minutes, gently wash away the mask with cool, clear water.  Pat dry again with a clean towel.

With regular application of this mask, you'll notice fuller, more vibrant summer skin in just a few short weeks!

Thanks to Michelle for this face scrub recipe,you can find out more about the Skana Spare here!
