The london diaries... she blogs again!

Little one's! It's been far too long!!! So sorry! Lately I've been a very self obsessed, busy little Jo - after all it is always all about ME, ME, ME! 

Celebrating our first month back home in London town I'm proud to say we are nearly settled! Jobs and flat sorted (winner) so I am now very excited and desperate to imerse myself in all things beauty!!! starting with a very exciting delivery...

With a knock at the door, awww look who turned up with a package - postman Pat and his black and white cat!

Look what he dropped off...

Squeals! Oooh a lovely box from the gorgeous girls at amarya! But, what's inside? Let's take a peek...

Pink ribbon ♥ those amarya girls know me too well!

WOW I'm a lucky girl indeed! 

In case your not familiar with amarya - amarya are an award winning UK company offering the best selection of natural and organic beauty products. Following on from the incredibly popular beauty box's on the market, amarya offer a unique approach to the beauty box with gorgeous natural and organic beauty products! £10 a month with free postage what's not to like?

Let's re-cap what was in my amarya beauty box!

A full size 75ml bottle Lemon Lemongrass Body Oil by Dr. Hauschka £17.95 (RRP)
Very excited to receive a body oil, especially with the UK weather turning a little chilly my skin just loves this product and soaks it right up leaving me smelling delish with soft baby skin!

A travel size 59ml bottle ♥ Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Wash by John Masters Organics £2.50 (RRP)
Oh my stars this smells divine! I'm actually saving this one for a romantic mini-break... HINT HINT hubby-to-be!

A gorgeous Organic Cotton Exfoliating Cloth by Herbfarmacy 
 £3.50 (RRP)
Specially woven from 100% organic cotton, this face cloth is perfect for my cleanser...

 A cute little 2ml sample sachet Equilibrium Day Cream For Normal Skin by Ananne £85 (RRP) Well you all know how much I love samples! and I'm interested to do a little research and trial this one out but a 2ml sample wont go too far so we shall see... at £85 for a full size i'll have to be blown away to fork out for this one!

Last but not least, a 2ml sample sachet Aloe Vera Hydro Repair Gel by Santaverde £29 (RRP)
another little sample i'll add to my stash! I truly do love samples, but I do have to say 2ml sometimes just isn't enough product to really try it out! But, with promise of 100% active ingredient and 0 water - perhaps I'm wrong...

So, all in all, I think this beauty box from amarya is great value and gives me a great insight into brands I may not have been aware of and I love the fact that they can ensure the products are natural & organic!

Which beauty box's have you ordered? xox

The little jo adventures...

Why HELLO little ones! So sorry I haven't blogged in forever and a day, hope you haven't all forgotten about little old me!
But, I've been a busy little bee and have packed up my life to make the big move all the way back to London
It's been an amazing journey with a few stops along the way... 

 Singapore the land of shopping malls and gorgeous food!

Oodles of noodles!!

ice cold Singapore Sling at the
famous Raffles hotel oooh don't mind if I do!

Some satay to nibble on? absolutely!!!

Now for my favourite detour - the beautiful Sri Lanka...

Sri Lanka the jewel of the indian ocean...
Sri Lanka was absolutely stunning from the people to the gorgeous ever changing scenery and the food oh my stars the food is AMAZING! We spent 14 days travelling this beautiful country soaking up the sun, sipping cocktails, patting elephants, watching cheeky monkeys play, and dining on fresh lobster...

Sigiriya the 8th Wonder of the World
Cheeky monkeys!
Just a little shopping of course!
how gorgeous is my sari?
my new friend Raja just chillin'
at the millennium elephant foundation

Now for the truly exciting part!!
