EMBRACE THE DAY - SKIN


If you follow my Instragram page you'll see I am always out exploring and spend most of my time in the cold waters on the Cornish coast. Even though my lifestyle may be heavily focussed on finding the best waves around I still like to take care of my skin especially when I get out the surf. I don't like to apply too many chemicals to my body and aways look for organic and natural alternatives where ever possible.

My first EMBRACE THE DAY blog talked about my love for Head and Hair oil but in this post I am going to share my favourite Made for Life by Spiezia Organics skincare product that I love to apply to my body after a day in the water. I carry this product in my handbag or rucksack so it's always on hand. Over winter my skin often gets dry and damaged so it's important for me to try and repair and nourish whenever I can. 


Gotu Kola

Rosehip Oil

Rose Geranium

Rose Petals

Carrot Oil

The Spiezia Organics Restorative Body Balm is packed full of goodness and smells amazing. This products aims to restore, regenerate and rejuvenate your body. It contains base oils such as carrot (which is a natural SPF) and Rosehip oil, both rich in vitamin C. The Gotu Kola feeds the skin and helps restore elasticity, whilst repairing damaged skin tissue. The Rose Geranium fragrance bring both your mind and body into balance. This product really is so wonderful and even though it contains a lot of oil it doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy.

A SUNDAY ROAST IN NEWQUAY

Living in Cornwall is pretty special, not only do we have the beaches and a quaint seaside towns but there are now so many amazing places to eat and drink in Cornwall cropping up everywhere. With eating being my second favourite thing to do (after surfing) I thought I would start sharing some of the places I love to dine on my blog.

For me there is no better way to spend a Sunday then with loved ones, enjoying good food and a little bit of wine. The British tradition of a Sunday roast is a favourite of mine. So after a brisk windy and rain soaked walk along the rugged Newquay coastline Ben and I dipped into the No.5 Brewhouse to escape the cold and indulge in my favourite Sunday tradition. 

With the surf looking pretty rubbish what else is there to do on a Sunday afternoon. We both opted for the roast beef and a large glass of red wine to wash it down. This plate of scumminess didn't disappoint and I am now writing this post from the comfort of my sofa experiencing a food coma. 

This roast dinner felt just like grandma had made it and left me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. As you can see the portions are HUGE! The roast had a great balance of flavours with so many tasty components, I loved the broccoli and cauliflower cheese which had a slight hint of blue cheese!   

If you love a Sunday Roast and haven't been to No.5 Brewhouse in Newquay yet then you really need to head down there next weekend. Your stomach will thank you.


Thanks again to No.5 Brewhouse for looking after us, we will be back soon I am sure!
