Di Palomo + Bomb Cosmetics Haul | Beauty

I recently placed a little order on the Temptation Gifts website after discovering they stocked Di Palomo, and at discounted prices! Here's what I purchased:
Di Palomo Orange Blossom, Honey & Olive Indulgent Bathing Experience Box Set, £23.95 £16.77
This set includes:
Di Palomo Orange Blossom, Honey & Olive Moisturising Body Wash, 250ml
This body wash is a rich, luxurious formula containing natural extracts of orange blossom, honey and olive; all known for their soothing and nourishing properties. It also contains added moisturisers, including Pro-Vitamin B5 to help keep skin soft and supple.
Di Palomo Orange Blossom, Honey & Olive Hand & Body Lotion, 250ml
This sweet, delicately scented lotion contains moisturising olive oil and natural extracts of orange blossom and honey. This product claims to leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and nourished.
Di Palomo Orange Blossom, Honey & Olive Hand & Nail Cream, 25ml
This sample size hand and nail cream contains natural extracts of orange blossom, olive oil, grape seed oil and honey, so is rich in vitamins A & D which help aid the production of healthy skin tissue.
Di Palomo Orange Blossom, Honey & Olive Fragrant Candle
This hand-poured fragranced sample size candle is made from natural vegetable wax and gives off a perfectly uplifting scent of orange blossom, honey and olive.
Bomb Cosmetics Pink Rhubarb Encounter Bath Mallow, £2.25 £2.03/50g
Scented with rhubarb and blackberries, this sweet and fruity paraben-free bath mallow contains skin-softening cocoa and shea butter, pure rose and bergamot essential oils. This truly smells amazing; just like sweet rhubarb! I can't wait to try this.
Bomb Cosmetics Raspmerry Chuckle-late Bath Mallow, £2.25 £2.03/50g
Scented with raspberry and vanilla caramel blended with chocolate, this indulgent paraben-free bath mallow contains skin-nourishing cocoa and shea fruit butters, pure frankincense and sandalwood. This smells rich and chocolately with a hint of fruity raspberry. Sounds perfect for a cold Winter's night (can I wait that long to use it?)!
My Mother-in-law also bought this for me at the weekend, from one of the gift shops in Clovelly!
Bomb Cosmetics Cranberry & Lime Scented Candle Tin, £6.99
I was really drawn to the fresh, fruity zestiness of this pretty, vegan-friendly candle. The cranberry and lime compliment each other perfectly, along with undertones of strawberry, raspberry, plum, peach and apple and finishing with a woody base with scents of white flowers. I can't wait to light this! I think this is a perfect scent for Summer.

Hair Care Products | Haul

My friend recently introduced me to Ethical Superstore, an online store selling fair trade, organic and eco-friendly beauty, household, food products and more. This is my second order from them and I thought I'd show you the hair care products I purchased. There is currently 20% off all products across the store (ends 3pm on Thursday)! Please leave your email address in the comments to receive £10 off your first £25+ order!
Faith In Nature Pomegranate & Rooibos Shampoo, £5.50 £4.40/400ml & Faith In Nature Pomegranate & Rooibos Conditioner, £5.50 £4.40/400ml
These two products are formulated to revitalise and regenerate the hair and scalp, providing hydration and leaving hair soft and manageable. With extracts of organic pomegranate and rooibos, these vegan-friendly hair products are free from artificial fragrance, SLES, synthetic preservatives and petro-chemical based ingredients.
Faith In Nature Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner Gift Pack, £6.99 £5.59/x2 250mls
These two hair products are also free from artificial fragrance, SLES, synthetic preservatives and petro-chemical based ingredients. Sweetly scented with organic coconut, these moisturising products also contain natural vitamin E. 
Jason Smoothing Sea Kelp Shampoo, £6.29 £5.03/473ml & Jason Smoothing Sea Kelp Conditioner, £6.29 £5.03/473ml
These hair care products are enriched with sea kelp, ginseng root and kukui nut oil and are free from parabens, SLS and phthalates. The shampoo gently cleanses while taming frizz and the conditioner also helps to tame frizz and leave your hair smooth and silky. Sea Kelp is rich in vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids and weightlessly rehydrates dry hair strands. Ginseng root and plumeria acutifolia calms frizz and controls fly-aways without leaving a heavy residue. Kukui nut oil blocks out humidity and smooths the texture of the hair, leaving it sleek and refined.
I'm really looking forward to trying these out! Fingers crossed they will tame my frizzy mane!
Giovanni 2chic Ultra-Sleek Blow Out Styling Mist, £8.99 £7.19/118ml
I wash and blow-dry my hair daily, so this sounds perfect for my hair. With Brazilian keratin and Moroccan argan oil, this styling mist is designed to defend hair from blow dryer heat, moisturise hair for silky, voluminous bounce, detangle for easy brushing and banish frizz! 
And just to mix it up a little, I also picked up this Eco Tools Bamboo Eye Shading Brush, £4.99 £3.99/each
My old e.l.f. eyeshadow brush has seen better days, so I thought I'd try this one! This full eye shadow brush is made from soft bristles and has a recycled aluminium ferrule and bamboo handle. It can be used for shading, highlighting and blending. This brush also comes in this cute, reusable eco pouch.

Yesterday's Outfit + A Trip To Clovelly, Devon | Lifestyle

Yesterday we went on a day trip to Clovelly in Devon. It was a lovely, hot and sunny day. This pretty coastal village is accessed via steep, cobbled streets inaccessible by vehicles, so the locals have to collect their groceries and other supplies from the top of the village and transport them in crates/sledges! It was really interesting to find out more of the history and the way of life here.
T-Shirt, Primark | Shorts, Peacocks | Flats, Red Herring | Bag, Osprey | Necklace, eBay

I opted for a pretty simple, casual look and my favourite accessory was definitely this delicious rhubarb crumble ice-cream!
We had a great time checking out the little gift shops and enjoying the wonderful scenery.
Have you been anywhere new recently? I can't wait for our next trip!
