A beach bag needs to hold all essentials such as; flip-flops, towels, water bottles and sun cream. It has to look good as well as provide for a day at the beach. Being super spacious, having plenty of pockets and an inner compartment is a bonus. It has to be chic, trendy, sophisticated and have the perfect colourful summer look.
A sun hat has to provide all the shade needed to protect from the UV rays of the sun. It can be sophisticated, chic or sporty.

Caring for the delicate skin around the eyes is an essential part of our skincare routine. The eye area is the first place we get wrinkles and the place that shows when we are tired. The skin around the eyes requires a more specialised cream as the skin is thinner than on the rest of the face, so the cream has to be lighter to care for the delicate eye area. Eye creams work in many different ways; brightening, diminishing puffiness and dark circles, smoothing lines and wrinkles, cooling, reducing signs of tiredness, re-energising, enhancing radiance, delaying wrinkle formation, soothing, lifting, softening, hydrating, nourishing, easing blood circulation to improve the skin’s complexion, tightening, re-contouring and firming.
Eye creams come in a cream or gel, with or without a roller ball. The cream is applied by dabbing gently around the eye area from the outside towards the nose using the ring finger as it is weaker and will not pull and drag the skin. The roller ball has to be squeezed then gently rolled under the eye area from the inner corner to the outer until a sufficient amount of cream is applied. Any cream left sitting on the skin can be lightly dabbed until thoroughly absorbed.
Use morning and evening after cleansing and toning. Apply creams on the contour area avoiding direct contact with the eyes.
Making sure that all make-up is removed from the delicate eye area is essential. We need an eye make-up remover that cares for the eyelashes as well as the delicate skin. They can be a gel, oil-free formula, for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers and must hydrate, refresh, soothe, strengthen eyelashes, nourish and leave the skin feeling soft and comfortable.
When removing eye make-up, sweep over the eye area gently with a cotton pad. A cotton pad does not soak up too much of the product so prevents wastage.
There are many cosmetics on the market to create the perfect brow. Eyebrows are an essential part of our make-up as they frame the face. For best results, the eyebrows need to be perfectly contoured and defined. Perfectly sculpted eyebrows enhance the eyes.
There are different options to create the perfect brow; brush, pencil, marker or kit. They need last all day and be resistant to sweat, humidity and must not smudge. For a natural look, choose a shade close to the colour of the eyebrows.
After posting well over 100 posts on my blog, I look back over the past two years and think to myself how far I have come, from building my confidence through learning about personal development to building my beauty business. I did think the other day, will I delete some of my old posts? The answer is, no! My blog is part of my journey.
When I started my blog, I knew nothing about how to drive traffic, and get the right readers. However, slowly but surely I am discovering how to share my thoughts with the world and build my business.
I am learning something new each day and still working on personal development, I think everyone needs to keep improving their skills and relationships. How is my new business going? The answer is, fantastic! I love the products and believe things happen in life for a reason, that is, to give us something better.
So, my new journey is to share this fantastic business with everyone, keep writing my books and do a bit of teaching here and there. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Intensively nourishing single application capsules for the face, neck and décolleté. Contains a unique blend of six nutrient-rich natural oils, which replenish the skin to revive its softness, smoothness and radiance.
For the best results, use morning and evening over the course of one month, when your skin is in need of extra nourishment. Use as a supplement to your usual skincare regime. Apply after cleansing, and before moisturising, so the light formulation can be adequately absorbed. Snap open the capsule and smooth over the face, neck and décolleté with the fingertips.
This skincare routine is essential for keeping my skin looking at its best. I use the Optimals Age Revive set as it targets multiple signs of ageing.
Step 1: Cleanse
Age Revive 2 in 1 Cleansing Milk & Eye Make-Up Remover
Every morning and night I cleanse my face with this cleanser. I love it because it is an eye make-up remover and cleanser combined. Very convenient and saves me having to buy each one separately. It removes impurities and make-up easily and leaves my face feeling thoroughly cleansed, soft and hydrated. I apply a light layer of cleanser to my face with my fingers, then I use a cotton pad and wipe gently in an outwards motion to remove the cleanser along with the dirt, debris and make-up from my skin.
Step 2: Tone
Age Revive Toner
Every morning and evening after cleansing, I use this toner to remove any traces of cleanser and to tighten my pores as well as purifying my skin. Once applied, I feel my skin tingle as the toner starts to work. My skin is left feeling refreshed. I use a cotton pad and sweep gently over my face in an outwards motion.
Step 3: Moisturise
Age Revive Serum
Every morning and evening, I apply a serum after cleansing and toning, but before moisturising. It hydrates and re-plumps my skin minimising pores and boosting radiance. I apply gently being careful not to drag and pull the skin. I feel it is best to allow the serum to dry before I apply my moisturiser.
Age Revive Day Cream SPF 15
Every morning after cleansing and toning, I moisturise my skin with this day cream. It hydrates, brightens and replenishes my skin. The SPF 15 protects my skin from premature ageing and pollution. I apply gently all over my face.
Age Revive Anti-Ageing Night Cream
Every evening after cleansing and toning, I moisturise my skin with this night cream. It hydrates and nourishes my skin, so I wake in the morning to my skin feeling fabulous and more youthful. I apply the night cream in the same way as the day cream.
Age Revive Anti-Ageing Eye Cream
The final stage of moisturising is to use an eye cream to reduce puffiness and dark circles. The skin around my eyes feels cool and brightened after application. I apply this cream gently under the eyes from the inside corner to the outside every morning and evening.
Step 4: Exfoliate
Skin Refine Exfoliation Scrub
Once weekly, or when I need to brighten and revive my skin, I use this exfoliator. It leaves my skin radiant and smooth. It removes all the dead skin cells to leave my skin looking bright and healthy. I apply a small amount to my skin massaging gently in small circles all over the face.
Step 5: Mask to Deep Cleanse
Swedish Spa Purifying Face Mask
Once weekly and after exfoliating, I use this mask to deep cleanse my pores. It draws out impurities, detoxifies and leaves my skin feeling clean and soft. I cleanse my skin, then apply a thin layer all over my face. I relax for 10 minutes allowing the mask to work, then rinse off with lukewarm water.
All of the products have to avoid the eye area. The only cream to be put near the eyes is the eye cream. The eye area is very delicate, and the eye cream has been specially formulated to care for the skin around the eyes.
