SHOUTOUTS

IMG_0352Hey guys! Lately I’ve been absolutely loving discovering new blogs, and sharing my love of fellow bloggers, even if it’s just through a really quick #FF! So today, I thought I’d dedicate this entire post to you guys. My readers, and fellow bloggers.

Since my giveaway has officially closed, I still wanted there to be a fun ongoing event on my blog, so today I’m officially kicking off a shoutout week! For the next 7 days, I will be giving a daily shoutout to a fellow online creator/blogger, on my Facebook page, Twitter and blog posts.

September Favourites

It’s the end of another month, so that can only mean another favourites post! I’ve got a lot of new things to talk about this month, along with some good old favourites, so let’s jump right into my September Favourites!qwertyuiopNivea Soft Moisturiser | I’ve dabbled with this moisturiser before, but I very quickly stuck to my Nivea Day & Night moisturisers. So this month I decided to dedicate myself to trying this moisturiser out properly, and I love it. It’s so light and delicate on the skin, but really leaves your face feeling hydrated and unbelievably soft. It’s also one of the rarer moisturisers that smells amazing too.

Azure Woven Facial Mask | As I’ve been having a little bit of skin trouble lately, I’ve been trying a lot of new products out to give my skin a break and a little treat. These facial masks are astounding. They’re super easy to use, but perfect for a girly night in. It’s a cloth-mask, meaning all you do is open it, and place it on your face!

Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask | As I’ve already said, I’ve been enjoying girly nights in with face masks, and nothing leaves your skin feeling more nourished than a mud mask. These are really affordable and ready to use at any time!

Planet Spa Lavender Pillow Mist | You would not recall a life before trying a lavender pillow mist. I know I certainly don’t. The lavender helps you drift off to sleep naturally, without being too overpowering.

Colour Changing Light Up Heart | I picked this up in Tiger a little while ago, and I’ve loved it ever since. This cute little heart slowly fades through a rainbow of colours, again, perfect for having on while you’re relaxing, perhaps with a face mask and spritz of lavender on your pillows?DSCN2322Collection Lip Liner | I picked up this lip-liner because it’s the corresponding lip-liner to the lipstick that I fell in love with from Collection. As it’s a very deep burgundy colour, I feel that it stays put and looks even more gorgeous when I’ve lined my lips first. It’s also great for using all over your lips if you’d rather have a slight tint of this colour, before fully committing to the depth of the lipstick.

Collection Lipstick in #3 Aubergine Kiss | This lipstick, is gorgeous. I can’t even fully express it to you guys. It’s so perfect for autumn, day to evening wear, I just love it. It’s the deepest burgundy colour you can imagine, has a good staying power for a drugstore lipstick, and it doesn’t break the bank! An autumn must-have for me.

Baby Lips Chapstick | I’ve ranted to you guys about how much I adore Baby Lips chapsticks since I first picked one up earlier this year. I really like the Dr Rescue range because it’s slightly more intense, perfect for the colder weather, and if you regularly suffer with dry lips. But this one in particular is tinted pink, it’s almost like a lipstick!DSCN2324 Lush Creamy Candy Bubble Bar | I know I know. More about Lush’s Creamy Candy Corinne? I can’t help it, this product is perfect for any night, any time of year. As I’ve said before when I’ve talked about it, it smells just like candy, leaves your skin feeling silky and moisturised, and it gives you a bath full of bubbles to enjoy. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Zoella Beauty Candy Cream Body Lotion | I’ve been obsessed with this smell since it first came out. It’s deliciously fruity, with bursting beads and acai berries, this body lotion really gives your skin a treat. Making you feel fresh and delicious.DSCN2327 VO5 Heat Defence Spray | I know I’ve only just spoken about the VO5 hair care range, but my hair has never felt better ever since I tried these products out. The heat defence spray is an ultimate staple for me, and I know I always stress it, but it should be a staple for everyone. If you’re blow drying and styling your hair with heat, you need to be protecting it first. And even after re-bleaching the ends of my hair, it’s silky and soft thanks to these products.

VO5 Frizz Free Creme | This creme is perfect for use in tandem with the heat defence spray, as it moisturises the ends of your hair, leaving them feeling just a soft as after having a trim.DSCN2333Zombuster Game | And finally, this game. It’s as addictive as Flappy Bird, with a similar format; you’re just consumed with a mighty need to keep trying. Just bust the zombies, and avoid the civilians, it really is as (seemingly) easy as that. Let me know if you beat my high score of 100, because I will be jealous and it’ll give me all the more reason to keep playing. This app is free to download on ios and android, with an in-game ad banner.


That’s it for my September favourites, what have you guys been loving this month? I always like to hear about new products to try out!

5 Free Printables & Facebook Page Announcement

Every now and then we can all do with a personal mantra, or just some words to settle and reassure us. So today I created 5 printables with some quotes that I love, all for different situations.


quote3 I adore this quote because it’s to the point, punchy and sassy. Any time I’m feeling a little bit down, or if someone in particular is getting you down, either because of the present or the past, I love being reminded that how we feel is up to us. Your self-perception and confidence is all determined and can only be changed by you. And as I like wearing makeup, (even if my drink of choice is Fanta…) this one feels great for me.


quote2 This quote entirely speaks for itself. Never do anything that you don’t absolutely love. You can always stop. Speak up and stay true to yourself and your preferences.Don’t waste a second of your life half-invested in something.


quote1 Again, this quote has no grey area. Personally I have never been very good at dealing with change. But as soon as I internalised this saying and stopped questioning the why of everything, life becomes so much easier. As humans, we are all constantly searching for the why in every event, but if we simply accept that everything happens for a reason, but some of these reasons may not be immediately evident, it doesn’t matter. Just embrace it and move on.


quote5 I love this quote because it reminds me that none of us are in this alone. Yes, there will always be people who appear worse off than you, and there will always be people who seem better off. But the reality is, you never truly know what another person is going through, because we cannot experience life from their eyes and with their thoughts. So therefore the best thing to do is to just be kind.


quote4And finally I love this quote because it doesn’t delve too deeply into life or emotions, it’s just a great little mantra to have whenever you’re shopping or getting dressed. All too often to place importance on what other people think and what other people are doing, and in the meantime we lose who we are and what we like. So this is just a more fun, confidence based quote to keep in mind if you’re having a down day, or questioning what to wear based on what others are wearing, or what they might say.


And that’s it! Those are just a select few of some of my favourite quotes that I like to keep in mind on a regular basis. Do you have a personal mantra? I’d love to hear it, so let me know in the comments!

I’ve also created a Facebook page that you can like, if you would like to do so! This way you can stay up to date with Organic By Nerve, and get in touch with me if you’d like to request a post, or collab!
