Fri-nally, it’s FRIYAY! I want to say it feels like it’s been forever, but honestly the weeks (and weekends especially) are flying by. Can you believe this month will be my six month anniversary at my not-so-new job? Yep, I’m in disbelieve too! Later in the month I’ll be talking about the 6 Things My First Job Has Taught Me. Also keep your eyes out my Top 3 Iced Teas, Avo Toast 6 Ways, DIY Geometric Ring Cones and How to set SMART Goals guide. But before all that, lets chill and enjoy February’s avocado themed FRIYAY!
Anyone one who’s seen my home on Instagram can easily spot that I’m a candle obsessed. Seriously, I love candles almost as much as I love avocado. Almost 😉 I’ll buy a candle instantly if it smells like coconut, caramel, vanilla or anything fruity. But Ginger & Lucille’s Fresh Mint and Avocado Soy Wax Candle totally took me by surprise. Firstly, I’d never come across an avocado scented candle before. I had no idea they even existed! But what amazed me even more was how incredible and refreshing it smelt. It’s crisp scent is unlike any candle I’ve ever experienced. Knowing I was probably never going to come across such a unique candle combo again, I had to snatch it up while I was on my trip to Perth over Christmas. Thankfully I had enough space in my luggage to take everything back!
I have to admit, it’s pretty hard jumping from LUSH’s (A-MAZ-ING) Ocean Salt Body and Face Scrub in January to Organik Botanik Australia Spirulina + Avocado Body Scrub this month. They’re two completely different textures. While Ocean Salt is thicker and chunkier, Organik Botanik is runnier with much smaller granules. While I love how soft my skin feels after a good scrubbin’ of Ocean Salt, Organik Botanik’s Spirulina and Avocado based scrub has many benefits for the skin. The spirulina helps eliminate toxins from the skin while also boosting the skin’s metabolism. On the other hand, avocado is jam packed with vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin B, C, E and K, folate, magnesium, potassium, lutein, omega-3 fatty acids and anti-ageing antioxidants. The monounsaturated fats in avocado make the skin soft and healthy looking, while polyunsaturated fatty acids protect the skin from sun damage, sensitivities and inflammation. Along with Organik Botanik’s Bath Soap, I’m definitely looking forward to reaping these benefits throughout the month!
A few years back when I was going through an incredibly stressful few weeks, my Aunty told me to paint my nails. She told me that’s what she does every time she feels stressed, and it helps her relax. Now that I’m working full time and maintaining my own home, I totally get where she’s coming from. There’s nothing better than spending an hour (or two) treating yourself to a pamper sesh. While this OPI shade is technically called grape, it definitely looks more similar to the creamy green colour of avocado!
