I’ve finally emerged from my winter blogging hibernation. Long story short, I decided to move my blog over to self-hosted WordPress. By the time that whole shebang was sorted the last thing I wanted to do was spend more time on blogging. Anyway, now that’s all sorted (for the most part) I thought it would be nice to ease back into things with a little round up of skincare products I’ve been religiously using over winter. Not that we experience drastic temperature extremes here in Queensland that would affect my skin that much. But I do tend to pay a little more attention to my skin in the drier winter months. I’m also more open to adding ‘richer’ products like oils and serums to my skincare routine. These are the skincare products I’m loving lately.
Lately I’ve been trying to seek out brands with more responsible business models. It’s not always easy and they can be few and far between but when you do come across one it’s always worth it. I was recently introduced to AUrate New York and my interest was quickly piqued. Not only do they create quality fine jewellery but they also have a focus on sustainable and ethical production, transparent pricing, and tangible giving. AUrate’s newest collection is all about classic, understated style and I was instantly drawn to these minimalist hoop earrings. Despite not being an ‘earring person’ for most of my life I am all about the earrings lately. Luckily for me they also have a whole bunch of other types of earrings on their website as well as some gorgeous pearl jewellery (my birth stone – June baby here!) and geometric-inspired designs. What kind of jewellery are you loving lately?[Images supplied, edits by me]
