Loving Lately #31


Just incase you thought I'd gone and quit blogging... Surprise! I have lots to share with you but unfortunately no time to do so, I promise I will be back soon though! I plan on blogging every day next month, a mammoth feat for me as I've not done that since I started blogging 3 years ago! I'm very excited to finish university but also extremely nervous for my future as I can't seem to decide what my "forever career" will be, I'd like to say a blogging/artist combo but dream on sunshine ;) 

Anyway, here are a few of my favourites lately.. Only yesterday I got a new Tangle Teezer and it's already an amazing difference from my old grubby one (if a little sharp) I love Tangle Teezers, they are miracle workers for my hair, it's not too thick or thin but there is a lot of it and it requires a lot of effort to brush, even though it's short! Plus look at that amazing neon orange, instant happiness. 
Another tool I have been loving is the trusty Konjac Sponge. You may remember me talking about these a few months ago when I picked up the green one on a whim. I did love it but you can only keep them for a little while before they start falling apart. I now have the pink one (for dull skin) which contains pink french clay and have been using it every morning and most evenings too. I use it in the mornings with my Osmia Black Clay Facial Soap or sometimes on it's own as it still works well to give the skin a quick clean. In the evenings I use it with my second cleanser of choice to help it on the way and exfoliate too. I really think these sponges work and they just feel sooooo good.

Makeup wise I'd like to say I've been adventurous but seeing as I'm indoors working away all day I have nobody to impress. I have however been practising using the Jane Iredale Jelly Jar* (that's gel liner to you and me). I'd never used gel liner before but I am seriously impressed with this one, it's easy to use, the blackest of blacks and doesn't budge once it's set. I still need some practice for a perfect flick but the handy angled brush helps an awful lot. 
Last on my list is the Sepai V5.0 Global Moisturiser with SPF 15*. This is the only moisturiser I have with SPF in so I've been making sure to use it now that the sun is shining. I was a little worried it would be thick or leave a white cast but I was pleasantly surprised as it's such a lightweight cream, almost gel like in texture and sinks into my skin perfectly, I love! My small bottle is from the travel set but it's quite big and will hopefully last quite a while. This is my first time trying Sepai so I will make sure to report back with my thoughts soon.

What have you been loving lately?

  1. I realy want to try the konjac sponges but something is holding me back! I am not sure how hygenic it would be! and if it would be too harsh or too soft.. dunno!

    1. They are really soft! I make sure I wash mine every other day with Dr bronners so I think it's okay :)

  2. I'm starting to hear more about the konjac sponges but I haven't tried it yet. I'm definitely tempted though. Tangle Teezers are incredible. I don't know what I was doing without one in my life before. xx

  6. I seriously can't live without my tangle teezer. I got it a year ago and it's such a savior for when my long hair gets very tangly!

  7. I'm currently on a little no-buy session after my shopping spree in Japan, but I saw Tangle Teezers everywhere there & I'm definitely a little obsessed with wanting to buy one again. Now to decide between gold & pink.. ;)

    I used to have the pink Konjac sponge as well and loved it. Have you tried the sponges for the body yet? I had the green one to use in the shower (I did combine it with shower gel) and it was great for my skin!

  10. Hi Annabel! Lots of lovely things! How do you feel the French Green Clay compares to the pink? I was using the green one at the beginning of the year and then never got around to getting a new one after that until last week, and I went for the pink hence my question! xx
