Vie Naturals Handmade Soaps!

You love smelling good, I love smelling good, well all love smelling good!
I’m also a sucker for anything that doesn’t have a tonn of ingredients that I don’t understand in, so when Vie gifted me some of their handmade soaps containing just FIVE ingredients, I was all over that! 
Also someone who suffers with dry legs and coconut oil being one of the main ingredients - soothes my legs gooooood! 

Here’s more from the soap master chefs themselves! 

Vie Natural's Hand Made Soap collection comprises of 4 individual formulations. Lavender, Rose, Jasmine, Frangipani

Each soap bar is uniquely textured with organic botanicals and has a bubbly lather and rinses off clean without residue.

Our base oil, coconut oil, provides a healthy lather that cleans and leaves your skin feeling moisturized.

A cold process soap making method is used. This process produces a bar full of natural glycerin, which is a by-product of the soap making process. Unlike most soaps on the market today, we do not remove this glycerin from our soap because it is a humectant, which helps attract moisture to the skin and can be gentle enough for even the driest and most sensitive of skin.

These soaps are great for placing in your guest bathroom, inside a mason jar, or as gifts for every occasion.

Suitable for vegans, the Vie Natural’s Handmade Soap contains no Parabens, no Phthalates and no Sulphates. Suitable for all skin types.

Vie Natural’s Handmade Soap costs £6.95 for 4 pieces from www.global1st.co.uk


Belmio tu bellezza

It’s no secret your Blonde LOVES a good cup of Joe okay!! 
It’s the peanut butter to my jelly.
The pea’s to my carrots.
The soul to my soul mate.
My cup of happy.
My cup of sanity. 
My cup of heavaaaaan!!! 
So I was esctatic when Belmio gifted me a box of different flavoured pods of heaven! 
I even shared! We used the pods at our office and well let’s just say it perked us ladies up on our coffee (and cheeky slice of cake) breaks! 
I can’t rate this product enough and I’m so grateful for the delightful experience to my taste buds! 
Here’s a bit more info from the coffee gods themselves! And guys, check them out - you know I won’t promote a product I don’t personally enjoy - and you will NOT be disappointed! 

Coffee is undeniably a representation of culture, flavour and aromas. The new Belmio range, with its eight exquisite blends, captures all three. Presented in premium aluminium capsules that protect against oxygen, light and moisture, the Belgians, as with their chocolate, know how to take coffee to the next level.

For when only the best is good enough, Belmio delivers quality that can be savoured pod after pod.

The Belmio coffee story begins with the very roots of the flavour, in the high-altitude coffee plantations. Here we source what we believe to be the very best Arabica and Robusta beans, with the most unique flavours and the gentlest characters. Next our master roaster subjects every bean to yet another strict selection process, after which he blends them virtuously into sublime, lyrical mélanges. Our coffees are roasted slowly and intensively for a lengthy period, resulting in an extra intense and well-balanced flavour, full body and unique character.

For the modern coffee drinker only the best is good enough, which is why Belmio selects only the best Arabica and Robusta beans for eight distinctive and rich coffees. Choose from Allegro, Origio, Largo, Risoluto and Intenso, and from the Belmio Lovers Range, Valentina, Seducio and Aphrodicia.

Belmio use only aluminium capsules, an industry first, because it is the best material available today to protect quality coffee. Aluminium is also the only material that interacts with coffee machines in such a way to consistently produce the best tasting and aromatic coffee.

NESPRESSO COMPATIBLE                   
With the exception of the Expert, Prodigio, Vertuoline and U machines, all Belmio coffee pods are fully compatible with Original Line Nespresso machines.

The pods cost from £11.95 for 30 pods and are available in the UK from www.belmio-cafe.co.uk.


Taking responsibility!

Take responsibility for your life...
Let me say that again for the people in the cheap seats!

It's a tough pill to swallow recognising that many of the situations we live in have been created by our thought process and actions because of that thought process.
It's hard to hold your hands up and say yes, that relationship failed because I wasn't present enough, or because I was constantly thinking about my insecurities and fears, manifesting them to become a reality.
Its hard to recognise that you are repeating the same karmic cycles and situations because you haven't learnt the lesson the universe intended you to learn.
We don't like to admit that our financial issues, are actually created by feeling a lack - creating more lack. (Ever wondered why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer?)

I have been guilty, of all of the above.
I have pushed people away from me because I was scared, my fears created distance, my negative feelings about myself vibrated of me and influenced other peoples thinking about me.
Then I blamed those people, for leaving me! Creating even more of a bad vibration!
Even the strongest love can't survive when you don't love yourself and you can't love others the way they deserve, with everything you have, if you don't have it in you.
When you understand that, take responsibility for your role in situations then it allows you to not only feel compassion for the other party involved, but it allows you to forgive them for their position in the situation, let it go and turn your focus to healing and forgiving yourself.

This is where the whoooooole situation starts to shift, in your favour.

Meet, version of you 2.0!!!

This chick (or dude, guys could be reading this) understands she isn't perfect.
Forgives herself for all the mistakes she made when she didn't understand or fully know better.
Starts each day as a clean slate excited about what comes next.
Stays present and focused only on the 200m in front of her.
Takes care of her body and mind - daily - out of SELF LOVE.
Doesn't live by labels, relationship status or society expectations.
Holds ZERO grudges.
Smiles. ALOT.
For no reason.
Knows, that everything she focuses on, from her heart, with a positive manner, will be hers. It may not look the same as she first envisioned it, in the career she originally wanted, or the relationship she was trying to resurrect, you might not make millions, and baby that's okay you just want to live a comfortable life - but you WILL be whole, you will be complete and you WILL attract good things, good situations, good opportunities and good people into your good life!
Good Vibrations bring good vibrations.

Take responsibility, do the work you need to do on yourself.... and watch the rest fall into place. 


Hello August!!!

Olaaaaaa my beautifuls!!!!

Happy August!!!! I am so glad to be past July and living in a fresh month!

The Mercury retrograde effected a lot of people in terms of lack of productivity, things going wrong and just generally creating havoc on our lives!

If you swam through July I salute you, but I know for the most of us, it was a pretty tough month! Especially for Gemini's and Virgo's who are ruled by Mercury and anyone closely connected with one of these.

As we go through the next two weeks of the "Retroshade" things could still feel a little iffy, but they are most definitely on the up!

Jupiter is our main dominating planet in August, with it being direct August 11th!
Fortunately for me, I'm a Sagittarius, Jupiter is my ruling planet, and also - the luckiest!

So I'm feeling hopeful for August, I feel like it's going to be a really positive and exciting month!

My focus is very much on getting settled in my new home, and a routine surrounding my fitness, this blog and so on.
I also have a whole sector of new accounts at work to get around, I find I thrive best when my brain is stimulated and I finish my work day feeling proud of what I have accomplished, so I welcome this new challenge with open arms!!
In addition to that I've set myself up a little side gig doing some freelance work, so that will bring me in some extra monies also!!

Mentally, I am really focused on counting my blessings, doing my affirmations and just generally, having a more open heart to what the future holds and just letting things flow!

Life is about 10% what happens and 90% about how you use it to learn and improve yourself to build a stronger foundation for what comes next.

I wish you all the most amazing August!!

Tonns of Love, Hugs & Positive Vibes,

- Blondie, xox
