LoveLula Beauty Box - September 2014

I'm still ill so I haven't had a chance to do any reviews, but here's what's in my LoveLula Beauty Box this month.

PAI SKINCARE Exfoliator and Day Cream
"Two beautiful organic solutions for sensitive skin: Ultra-gentle, skin-softening and brightening Exfoliator and hydrating and replenishing vitamin-rich Day Cream. For glowing, revitalised skin."

"Perfect for all skin types to refresh, purify and condition skin. Contains Witch Hazel to tighten and Aloe Vera to revive. Made with 97% organic ingredients."

"Fragrance-free, 100% organic Face Balm that leaves skin silky smooth and protected. Use day or night to soften lines or when skin needs extra nourishment."

BENTLEY ORGANIC Moisturising Hand Sanitizer
"The innovative British family brand making organic lifestyle choices accessible for all. This alcohol-free Sanitizer is gentle, moisturising and hygienically clean."

BALM BALM Little Miracle Rosehip Serum
"A rich and refined blend of Rosehip, Jojoba and Borage oils infused with Frankincense and Mandarin to feed skin and moisturise for total rejuvenation."

"Tasty, organic care and protection for all weathers; offering nourishment and gloss in a convenient stick ideal for your handbag or travels."

Again, there were plenty of decent sized products, ones that I'm really happy to try out, so I'm pretty pleased with the box this month.

I hope you're all having a good weekend.

Autumn Pinspiration

I've not been well, thus the lack of posts, and despite the fact that the weather has been lovely and warm, I've been tucked up under layers of cardigans, scarves and blankets. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the bright, dry weather, but at this point, I'm dreaming about the crunchy leaves of autumn.

Hopefully I'll be back into my regular posting schedule soon, I'm just a bit overwhelmed with work, college, and personal stuff just now.

However, I hope you're all well and have a brilliant weekend.

Vitamins and suppliments

I'd say that generally, I eat a pretty varied diet. However, I don't eat a lot of meat or dairy, so over the past few years I have incorporated lots of nuts, grains and vegetables into my meals to help maintain my protein, iron and calcium levels.

Sometimes, on busy weeks, or if we're running low on money towards the end of the month, my diet isn't so great, which is why I take vitamin tablets just in case. I also suffer quite badly from PMS/PMDD so during certain times of the month I take supplements to help boost my serotonin and stay on the cheerier side of life.

I get asked this sometimes so I thought I'd share an updated post about what supplements I usually take.

I buy them from Holland and Barrett when they have good deals on, or from

Let me know if you recommend any vitamins/supplements that are good for low moods or are particularly useful for women.

Hope you've had a good week.
