Go Green -Say No To Plastic!

Lately I have seen many articles on how plastic is bad for the environment. I wonder why we are destroying our oceans and killing many species in the process? Is it because plastic is cheap and convenient? Although plastic may be easy to produce it is not easy to recycle. In fact it takes plastic bags between 10-1000 years to decompose. The average time for a plastic water bottle to completely degrade is 450 years although it can actually take as long as 1000 years.

 

Let'sHere are some ways to cut down on our use of plastic:

 

Always carry reusable shopping bags. I keep bags in the boot of my car and one in my handbag for smaller items.

Harry Potter: The Daily Prophet

Switch from toothpaste to a powder bitable tab that doesn’t come in a plastic container. I recommend either making your own toothpaste or if you don’t have time then the toothy tabs from Lush are great as they are in a solid form and come in a few different flavours.

Another way of cutting down on plastic waste is instead of buying plastic toothbrushes to try out the Bamboo toothbrush. They come in a pack of three or more and are not expensive.

Bamboo Toothbrushes

When buying a coffee, why not bring your own reusable take-away cup with you. Coffee shops are only too happy to fill these up for you, so don’t feel embarrassed. In fact many places actually have take-away cups to buy and they sometimes do a reward system so that you get a free coffee when you purchase one.

Coffee Aroma Bamboo Sippy Mug

 

Give up buying bottled water. Instead purchase a stainless steel travel mug and fill it with tap water before you leave the house.

Say no to plastic straws. If you must have a straw then clean it and reuse it other wise purchase stainless steel, bamboo or paper straws.

My Top Five Blushers For Summer!

I adore blushers in most shades but for the Summer season I generally radiate towards those beautiful peachy, coral tones. I prefer a soft creamy textured blusher this time of year as it gives that lovely glow to the skin.

NARS Limited edition Blush, Orgasm: This blusher is one of my new favourites for the summer season as it is a beautiful coral peach shade. I love the formula and the texture of this blusher.

 

TooFaced Peach My Cheeks, So Peachy: Apart from smelling amazing, this product has a super creamy texture to it, which makes it easier to apply to the skin. It can be used on both the face and lips. The blusher leaves a gorgeous glow to the skin.

 

Benefit, GALifornia: This blusher is a golden pink shade. I love how it gives a beautiful sun-kissed look to the skin. However if you prefer a deeper shade then all you need do is reapply!

 

NYX Baked Blush, Foreplay: The colour is a subtle peachy pink with a hint of sparkle. This product can be applied wet or dry to the skin. This is definitely one of my go to blushers for the summer. It’s perfect for daytime and can be used as a highlighter too.

 

MAC Pink Swoon: This product is a cool pink tone and comes in five different finishes. It builds well and is perfect for the summertime.
