VIVO Per Lei - Dead Sea Minerals

The Dead Sea is famous for its health-giving, mineral-rich waters containing sulphur, iodine, magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium and many others. People who care about there skin's health and longevity have relied on dead-sea based products for many years believing them to be superior in richness, smoothness and nutrition and ultimately the best basis for skin care products.

Facial Peeling provides a powerful facial cleansing by removing a thin layer of dry cells to reveal ultra-smooth and youthful skin. This product is great for all skin types. I have really oily skin and it's great on my skin. It is rich in Vitamin C & E. I love putting this on in the bath after the hot water has opened up all my pores. Just rub in sweeping circular motion over dry skin to remove the build up of dirt and oil. My skin feels so soft and clean afterwards.

Above- VIVO Per Lei - shea body butter.
This unique combination of Dead Sea Minerals together with essential vitamins and Shea Butter immediately replenishes the skins hydration to its optimum level and leaves the skin relaxed, supple, silky soft and radiant all day. I just gently massage a sufficient amount of body butter into the skin until completely absorbed.

Above- VIVO Per Lei - Salt Scrub
A de-vine combination of salt & oil from the Dead Sea skin reviving. Apply as needed over the body. Gently scrub and wash with warm water. This is the best body scrub i've ever used it makes my skin feel so soft.

I bought this when i was in Las Vegas but you can order it online.

I love any excuse to throw a costume party and it's my life goal to dress up as every disney princess - i know it's not the most ambitious goal but it's fun. And with Halloween just around the corner I though i'd share a few of the costumes I have worn over last couple of years and maybe give you some ideas...

Truffle Shuffle Haul

Truffle shuffle is a website that was established in 2004. It mainly sold 80's themed clothing but over the years it's added other things from different years. I love the clothes on this site and have quite a collection. Whats great is that they are clothes that don't date so things i bought in 2005 i still wear. This site is also really popular with many celebrities. I'm really into 80s themed stuff and thats how i came across it. Here are some of the things i have bought over the last few years.

Disney couture items-

I love anything Disney and fell in love with these vests they are absolutely gorgeous on and quite a few celebrities have been pictured wearing them.

The Care Bears

I loved the Care bears growing up and i've not grown up - i still love them and these t-shirts are sooo cute and my hoody is so snuggly. My favourite is the 3rd one along this tee was sold out for ages but i finally managed to get it.

Disney couture pajamas

I was bought these as a gift for my birthday and I love them. They are so comfy and just look really cute. My fave PJs.

Saved By the Bell Bayside Tigers jumper

I mentioned this jumper in my september purchases post. I first saw this pictured on Mollie King from The Saturdays and searched the internet to find where it was from. I was pleased when i found it on truffle shuffle and was surprised that it wasn't as expensive as i was expecting it to be. Its so comfy and looks great on.

My Little Pony - Daddy I want A Pony hoody

I first saw this in 2009 when Katie Price was pictures wearing it. It was sold out for months but truffle shuffle emailed me when it was back in and i finally got it. Katie Price doesn't have the best fashion sense but she does have some pieces that I love. She sold the hoody she was pictured in on her ebay site Jordans Closet and it went for over £400 which is crazy considering it cost £35.

Flashdance Top

This was the first item i bought from truffle shuffle in 2005. I was going through an 80s obsession and just had to have everything 80s themed and this was my favourite item of clothing. I still love it and even though i've worn it loads its still in perfect condition.

I thought i'd share with you my love for this website as i've recommended it to some of my friends and they are now obsessed too. It has ladies, mens, kids and accessories there is something for everyone.

Thank you for reading my blog.

My love for Uggs

As it's coming up to the winter season Ugg boots are the perfect winter boot to keep your feet snuggly warm in this cold weather. I got my first pair for christmas 2006 and my addiction to Uggs began. These are all the pairs i have collected over the years....

Cardy Uggs - I have 3 pairs of the original cardy boots, black, gray and oatmeal, and I have the new style in cream also. The original have three buttons down the side and can be worn up or folded down - as they are in the picture. The new style are tall with a diamond shape affect in the fabric they are so cute.

Classic short- I have 5 pairs of the classic short - sand, chestnut and I also have rainbow colours pink, purple and baby blue.

Classic tall- I have 5 pairs of classic tall - black, brown, chestnut, gray and pink. I also have Sundance tall in cream and Ultimate tall in black. These are an adaption to the classic with different soles and different designs on them. The sundance have fur down the side and ultimate have a white pattern down the back. I wear the tall boots either up as they are in the picture or folded down which is really cute too.

These short brown boots aren't Ugg but Love from Australia boots. I got these 3 years ago from Wags Boutique in London and they are quite similar to the Ugg Bailey Button boots but with ribbons. I'm not sure if these boots are sold any more but they are really cute.
