When it comes to skincare, I am a huge fan of natural ingredients and love to whip up all-natural concoctions of my own. Given the temperatures are only crawling higher and higher, I decided to experiment with creating a face and body mist.
I recently bought a bag full of premium dried rose buds from Carrefour (mainly because they look so pretty, and boy do they smell divine!), and as I was pondering over what I’d do with them, a warm cup of Earl Grey tea in hand, the scent combination of the two hit me right there and then… and Tezzy’s DIY Earl Grey Tea & Rose Mist was born.
Making this mist is so ridiculously simple, that I doubt you’d want to use store-bought ever again. And given you are making it from scratch, you know its free of any nasties and brimming with natural skin-loving goodness. Here is what you will need:
I’m travelling home to New Zealand, and the direct flight from Dubai will take me just over 18 hours in a compressed, air-conditioner thawed plane. This really sets the scene for dry, dehydrated skin. To avoid the all too common ‘jet-lagged’ look, keeping the skin well moisturized, and staying hydrated is key.
I decided to whip up my very own, all-natural, multi-purpose beauty balm for the journey. Why tow along a whole heap of products when you can make do with just one multitasking jar of goodness that you can proudly DIY yourself?
Best of all, this Beauty Balm takes under 10 minutes to create, and you only need 2 easy-to-find ingredients. Read on for the recipe!
My last blog post was all about Movember, and then I rediscovered this cute little silicone chocolate mould my sister had sent me from New Zealand. These are moustache moulds, how appropriate for #Movember!
It became our Saturday afternoon project, and my daughter is already halfway through the moustache stash as I type. Yikes! Expecting a major toddler sugar-high anytime soon!
Avocado & honey are the perfect ingredients for an indulgent health-boosting smoothie, but have you ever considered this combo as a part of your beauty regime?
I decided to smear this combo on my face. Best decision ever!
I love DIY projects but can be pretty lazy at getting them done. My Pinterest boards are flooded with nifty DIY pins I’ve been meaning to do.
Then I found this cute little box of fabric paint and stencils at Tchibo for a meager AED 35!
