Not so long ago, I wrote a blog post about L'Occitane's Almond Milk Concentrate, which is undeniably my favourite body moisturiser. However, you should definitely know that alhtough I moisturise every day, it's not always with a L'Occitane product. As much as I wish I could, I just couldn't afford to nurse that habit! L'Occitane is reserved for special occasions - especially date-nights, where I like to think that the sexy almond scent does me some favours -and on other days I rely on my more affordable products to keep my skin soft and smooth. Today I'm going to review four of the affordable body care products that I've been using, which I hope will help you if you're looking to get great value for money.

If you've been following my blog for a while then you'll know that Antipodes are one of my favourite beauty brands. I've been buying their products for years, and I'm also very grateful to recieve PR samples from them once or twice a year. Towards the end of 2016, Antipodes sent me their newly released Manuka Honey Skin Brightening Light Day Cream* and Manuka Honey Skin Brightening Eye Cream* so that I could test them out for myself. Well, guess what, I've been using these for a while and the results are now in.

Say hello to my new accessory love.
Monica Vinader is a brand that I've heard much about on social media and YouTube, and it seems to be so popular that it's infiltrated my non-blogging life too. It's clear to me that key influencers are being sent gifts from the brand, and I've seen the trickle-down effect influence other YouTubers and bloggers as well as many of my real-life/non-internet-based friends. Quite simply, Monica Vinader is going down a storm with women my age (mid-twenties) and I have no doubts that it will also appeal to many others.

I just can’t help myself, okay. I am willing to admit that £38.00 for a body lotion is verging on the absurd, edging upon obscene, but have you smelt L'Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate ? There is something magical, mystical and just plain wonderful and its scent. Plus, for me it’s so nostalgic that they could probably whip the price up by 20% and I’d still be coming back for more…

One of the best things about my new home is that I finally have access to a bath - and I've been making good use ot it! I moved at the end of December 2016, so I've been experimenting during these first few months and I've tried quite a few new products. I bought a handful of Lush bath bombs in their Boxing Day sale, but generally I prefer using the same product over and over for a sense of routine. I usually only use the bath bombs when I'm craving some colour (and a new instagram pic), otherwise I've been using the same three products on rotation.

In my post about Alex Monroe's Bee Necklace I mentioned that I already owned two other Alex Monroe pieces. These were also Christmas gifts (but back from December 2015) and, unlike my bee, they were a total surprise. I remember mentioning, completely in passing, my new-found interest in Alex Monroe as a brand - and for once it really wasn't intentional hinting! When it comes to jewellery, or really anything "designer", I like to mull over purchases because these are the things that you'll end up owning for years to come.
