Alteya Organics Lip Balm Review *gifted

How is this for timing; a new lip balm arrived in the post to review just as I have been suffering with dry skin and lips. Not sure why that's happening as the weather is starting to look up, but thank you to those who gifted me a sample of Alteya Organics Lip Balm.

These lip balms are USDA certified 100% organic, chemical and GMO free, and is marked as not tested on animals. As with many lip balms out there, they also claim to soothe, moisturise, and fight signs of ageing on the packaging.

The different options are:
  • Rose
  • Jasmine and Ylang Ylang
  • Vanilla and Geranium
  • Lavender and Mint
  • Grapefruit and Zoravetz
  • Lavender
I am always drawn to the lip balm section of any shop, and have on occasion ended up with a little collection of balms with various scents/ingredients, so this was a review I was looking forward to, although I admit to being a bit sceptical when I saw I had been sent the lavender and mint version. I love both things, and use mint lip balms quite often, but I never would have thought of putting them both together in a lip product. But having used it for a while now, the smell is definitely not what I was expecting. I thought the lavender would over power, but it's a good balance of the two ingredients together and is quite subtle. On the lips it feels nice, with a slight refreshing feeling coming from the mint, and seems to last quite a while before it needs replacing. 

Although it's not my favourite lip balm I've tried, I'd still use it again, and try out one or two of the other options. I'm curious about the grapefruit and jasmine ones. Prices start at £3.60 with products available from Love Lula, a natural beauty shop.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car

3 Ways With Mama Makes Bohemian Border Stamps

Hi Everyone, There's a little bit of a crafty overload here and on social media at the moment, but there are other posts planned and in draft form, so please look out for those, they just take a little bit of time to put together. Meantime I wanted to share the Mama Makes Bohemian Border stamps. I am a member of the design team, but bought these as I really liked the range of different designs - there are 10 in total, and had quite a few ideas of what I could do with them. I thought I'd post the stamps below, and 3 very different makes I came up with using them. 1) A Christmas Card - The Bohemian Border here I used as a Christmas garland, and absolutely love how it looks all coloured and glittered (had to get a little sparkle in there). The other thing I like about this set, is some of the designs are more of a bunting/garland shape, and not just a straight line, so there are handy gaps you can decorate with stick on gems or small embellishments for a finishing touch.
