Aluna & Ginger Cocktail

Sometimes the best flavour combinations are the simplest and this doesn't just apply to food, I also believe you cannot beat a simple cocktail. This 3 ingredient cocktail is up there as one of my favourites. It's fresh, spicy with a hint of paradise tones from the Aluna Coconut Rum. It's a great one to make at home if you fancy an after work treat of something to toast with friends.

Simply add the shot of Aluna into a short glass, which has been filled with ice. 
Squeeze in the juice of half a lime and add the other half sliced to the glass.

Pregnancy Skincare

Well, if you haven't already seen ... I am pregnant! 23 weeks to be exact and as a little introduction to my journey into motherhood, I am going, to begin with, a Pregnancy Skincare blog post.

If you're a regular follower of mine then you will know I am a BIG fan of homemade face oils and also the Living Sea Therapy products. Now more than ever skincare seems to be extremely important to me and as soon as I knew I was pregnant, which was in fact very early - 2 weeks to be exact, I began covering my stomach, legs and boobs in homemade oils and body butter. I guess becoming aware that my body was about to take on a dramatic transformation made me more conscious that I had to help it out a little along this crazy journey and keep it as hydrated as possible.

I did a little research on the essential oils to avoid (which I will share in another post) and began mixing up a variety of blends. Naturally, there is no way of me guaranteeing I will avoid ending up with stretch marks but to be honest I am not too worried about this. If I do have stretch marks at the end of my pregnancy then so be it. It's completely natural and something that I will learn to love and embrace, as I have done with my current scars and stretch marks.

So, let's get onto the regime! This is something I do every morning and before I go to bed.




Step One

H O M E M A D E   B O D Y   O I L

3 Drops Lavender
3 Drops Neroli
3 Drops Frankincense
2 Table Spoons Sweet Almond Oil

Want to know why I've chosen these oils? Well here is why.

Lavender: Calming, relaxing and has a great ability to tone and heal skin.
Neroli: Revitalising, evens skin tone and can prevent sagging.
Frankincense: Helps tighten skin tissue, prevents skin sagging and wrinkles
Sweet Almond Oil: An amazing oil to use as a carrier for all of the above.

Method

Apply a small amount into the palm of your hands and massage into the areas you see changes. For me, that's my boobs, hips, waist and stomach. Next up apply the Living Sea Therapy Body Butter.



Step Two


Some Key Ingredients


LIVING SEA COMPLEX®

Living Sea Complex® combines the unique geology of the Lizard peninsula with powerful, distilled Cornish Sea Salt Minerals and a trio of wild Cornish Atlantic seaweeds from the Cornish Seaweed company. Read on below to find out a little more about the key components.

PURE ESSENTIAL OILS

The bouquet from this essential oils triplet of frankincense, palmarosa and neroli is a wonderful combination for your mind and skin. Spicy, lemony and floral, these oils help rejuvenate and regenerate your skin by regulating moisture and oil production while aiding concentration for a stressed mind.


Method

Scoop the body butter into your palms and begin massaging into the same areas as you did with the oil. 



As you can see it's nothing too fancy, it's just simply nourishing the skin with natural oils and vitamin and mineral rich body butter. Like I said, I cannot say where this will prevent any stretch marks but I guess time will tell and if it doesn't that's ok! 

Stay tuned for my pregnancy posts coming soon.

Azura Bay Swimwear

S U M M E R   V I B E S   A R E   C O M I N G

It finally feels like Spring which means here in the UK we are getting ever closer to my favourite season … swimwear season! Now, yes I know this isn’t really a season but let’s just pretend it is for now. So with all this sunshine filled excitement I thought I would share some of my favourite Azura Bay Summer vibes. These images were all captured by Megan Hemsworth on our January trip to Fuerteventura. 

For those of you that have been following my blog for a while now, firstly thank you, it means a lot that you care about what I write and secondly you will know this isn’t my first collaboration with Azura Bay, I have lost track at how many collaborations we have worked on but it’s clear to say I love what the brand stands for. Azura Bay stock ethically sourced, eco-luxe lingerie, nightwear and swimwear, it’s chosen by women, for women. I love the values behind the brand and that Ashely the owner of Azura Bay knows exactly where and how each garment has been made. 

Well, that’s enough from me, I will let the images and the swimwear do the talking. I have included my sizes below so you can get an idea of what I am wearing and if there are any questions just send me a DM on Instagram or drop me an email to corinnevans@gmail.com
