I’m my own Galentine! The 2018 Edit

So this year I thought, why the hell not focus a little on myself for Valentines Day? I’ve written this post from my very own heart and I’m impatient to show you some products I am absolutely loving right now. This post has a bit more pink in than I’m used to, but hey when it’s the 14th Feb, the time is right to spread some passionate pink all over my blog!

I have ordered my favourite brownies from Gower Cottage, I’ve booked my favourite girls, Paul and I tickets to go see 50 Shades of Grey number three (as has been tradition on this day for the last few years) and I’ve picked out exactly what I’m going to be rocking tomorrow for the occasion. See below how I’m my own Galentine! The 2018 Edit:

Eyes: Blank Canvas Cosmetics

A super sexy palette with some gorgeous shades and deep tones.

Nails and lashes: KISS products

These are my top picks for the ‘finished touch’ effect. Pair with attitude and flair.

Body: Hempz

If you’re going out, better be smelling as sweet as a pomegranate with Hempz body wash.

Brows: Eylure x Fleur de Force

My brows will be packing some force with these delights from Eylure.

Face: XIP

Adding some serious glow to the mix with XIP sculpting palette and brush.

Outfit: Coconut Lane

Last but not least, I’m going out in style wearing this banger from Coconut Lane’s new sweatshirt collection, and it couldn’t be more fitting! PS, get 20% off your next Coconut Lane order by using my discount code saharasplash20 at the checkout. 💕

Be your own fabulous Galentine this year- wear what makes you feel great, eat whatever your heart desires and definitely don’t let anyone put you down!

Why choose L’Occitane for that perfect gift?

So we are all feeling that post-Christmas lull and are back to reality. We’ve got that January paycheck and we are already allocating budgets for those friends with February birthdays, Valentine’s Day and if you’re as forward thinking as I am, you’ve probably given a few thoughts to Mother’s Day in March too! I want to give you a little helping hand and answer the question-

why choose L’Occitane for that perfect gift?

L’Occitane has a very rich history; I’m talking heart and perseverance rather than papers. Celebrating their 40th birthday this year, they started out with one location in Provence (south of France) making traditional soaps in 1976 and within 2 decades had branched out to the Americas and to China. After this L’Occitane reached out to Europe and the brand now has an incredible 2700+ stores all over the world. Hard to think they just started from an old soap factory 40 years ago- I love it!

lip balm

So for Christmas just gone I received a shea ultra rich lip balm from L’Occitane pictured above and cannot sing its praises enough. The quality of the product as well as its delicate design definitely earns it a top spot in my everyday essentials. It is this dedication to its products which is why I have a penchant for L’Occitane, and I know that the perfect gift can be found if you are looking to get something meaningful for someone special to you. I’ve carefully researched L’Occitane’s gift section on their website and I have hand-picked a few of my favourites below –
