Recently i've been using the Evolve Organic Beauty Superfood Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. I've been using it for a few weeks and thought i'd share my thoughts with you.

Evolve Beauty are a organic and natural brand, everything is handcrafted and their products are also vegan and cruelty free. They make their products in small batches to ensure the highest level of freshness.

First of all the packaging is gorgeous!! I love these bottles and think they look lovely on the side of the bath and I think the pump is handy too. They are very instagramable bottles!

My hair is very dry and damaged right now, I could really do with a hair cut and treatment but I found this shampoo and conditioner nourished and hydrated my hair so much. I hair feels really soft and smooth and i've found it more manageable and less frizzy.

The smell is lovely, it's a really natural scent. It's almost therapeutic the scent, it reminds me of a spa / massage oil smell which is so nice when your chilling out in the bath with some candles and a face mask.

I think the bottles are a really decent size and would last a while, mine are still going and i've been using them loads. Evolve Beauty have so many different hair care products and also have lots of other products including a body range and skincare.

The Role of Physiotherapy in Preventative Health Care 

We all understand, on some level, that the best way to stay healthy is to take steps to protect our health. Most of us now accept that doing certain things, or not developing bad habits can keep us healthy for longer. For example, taking regular exercise and avoiding drinking too much alcohol are both proven ways to get fit, and stay healthy for longer. 

Over the years, steps and actions like these have been explained to us multiple times. So, for those who take health seriously not drinking too much and taking regular exercise is almost second nature. 
However, there are other less obvious things that you can do to protect yourself from disease and from aging prematurelyFor example, did you know that your local physiotherapist could potentially play an important role in keeping you fit and healthy? 

What are physiotherapists?
When you think of physiotherapists, what is the first thing that pops into your head? 
I bet you think about someone being helped back to fitness after a serious injury or an athlete being treated so they can train more, and become stronger. This is only natural, because that is how we see physiotherapists portrayed in the media. 

How can a physiotherapist can help you to stay fit?
However, did you know that a good physiotherapist could help you to stay fit too? You do not have to be seriously injured, or be an athlete to be able to benefit from their extensive knowledge of your body’s musculoskeletal system. 
There is no need to wait to be injured, or for disease to take hold before seeking their help. If you suffer from muscle tension, or have started to notice a particular weakness in a limb a physiotherapist can help.  
He or she can analyse your symptoms and give you a thorough check up. Doing so allows the physiotherapist to diagnose the underlying cause of the problem. They can then put together a treatment regime that is tailored to your needs. Taking this approach allows you to spot problems with your body early and tackle them before they become more debilitating. 
You can also use a physiotherapist to keep you mobile as you age. Their expertise will enable you to keep your body strong. This means that you will be able to carry on exercising for longer, and, therefore stay fit and active well into old age. 

How to find a good physiotherapist ?
Whether you are looking for physiotherapy in Northwich, or in another town you need to take the time to do a little research. It is important to find a practitioner that is properly qualified, well regulated and has the experience you need.   
For example, if you live in the UK, finding someone who is registered with the Health & Care Professionals Council would be a good idea. You can check to see if your physiotherapist is registered with them here.  

If you live elsewhere in the world you need to identify the relevant governing body, and look for a trained practitioner that is registered with them. It is also important to look for a physiotherapist with relevant experience of treating your particular issue or condition.

Lets talk about make up! I have a massive selection of make up but like any girl I have those staple items in my collection that I reach for every single day. I thought i'd share my everyday make up so you can see which bits I reach for daily.

Base: Recently i've been reaching for the Clarins BB Skin Detox Fluid and i've been using this since I got it. It's a lovely lightweight formula which has great coverage and blends so easily. I've been using this with my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer for a great everyday base.

Contour, As usual i'm reaching for the Collection Contour kit, i've actually repurchased this recently. The bronzer is the perfect shade, it's a cool toned bronzer so it doesn't make you look orange and blends out really easily for a natural looking contour.

I've been reaching for the Becca Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop highlighter since I bought it. I've reached the pan now and I will buy it again because it's gorgeous for everyday or you can build it up too.

Another product that I recently had to repurchase it the Urban Decay Potion Primer, I got the original one because I find this works best with matte eyeshadow. It makes your eyeshadow look better and last all day long, I use this every single day!

This Clarins Supra Volume mascara has recently become my favourite mascara ever, you can build up long lashes that have some amazing volume. I've been using this one it's own when usually I use two mascaras but theres no need with this one.

I've been using my HD Brows kit to define my brows along side my Soap and Glory Archery brow pencil. I really like the Archery range and use the brow pencil every day, I've repurchased this loads.

The NYX soft matte lip creams are lovely, I have a couple of shades that I've been wearing loads recently. I'm still loving Mac Velvet Teddy and have been wearing Whirl a lot too.

Eyeshadow, I've been sticking to my Naked palettes really. I have been wearing Mac expensive pink too as it's a nice all over the lid shade.

I try and mix up my everyday make up but these are the bits I tend to use all the time and always repurchase.

When I say makeup artist, what pops into your head? The chances are you immediately think of brides, models or films. This is not surprising because most of us would only turn to a makeup artist for something special like our wedding day. Apart from that, most of us never think of using their services. 

That is a real shame, because these skilled artisans can potentially change your lifeThey can help you to overhaul your look, bring it up to date and feel great about yourself again. 

Many people do not realise that they can book a consultation with a makeup artist in Manchester, or in their locality, to seek advice about the best way to get the look you want. You can tap into their years of experience, and quickly establish what works for you. 
Finding a makeup artist that is able to give you a makeover 
Unfortunately, not that many makeup artists advertise this service, but most will happily do it if asked. However, it is not always wise to simply book an appointment with your local MUA. Instead, you need to do a little research, and look for one with the relevant experience. 
The problem is that in some areas makeup artists almost exclusively do makeup for weddings or special occasions like birthdays or anniversaries.  
Normally, this type of makeup artist does an excellent job. They know how to transform their clients for their special day or event.  
But, that is not what you are after if you are looking to change your look. The last thing you want is to end up learning how to make yourself look like it is your wedding day. Your aim is to look your best while going about your daily life. Therefore, you what you need is a MUA that has a broader level of experience. 
What to look for? 
The first thing to look for is proper training. A qualified makeup artist will have learnt every technique, and know how to recreate practically any look. You can find out more about the training they will typically undergo, here. 
Try to find someone who has worked with people from the film, theatre and music industries. These are demanding clients that regularly change their look to suit the job they are working on at the time. As a result, they stretch the skillof makeup artists, which means that they need to be very good at their job.  
It is this type of MUA that is going to be able to help you to choose a new look that will work for you, and show you how to recreate it. Sometimes you will be lucky and find one in your local area, but in all likelihood, you will need to look in bigger towns and cities to find one with the relevant experience. 

Once you find a possibility take the time to browse through their website. If you like what you see, ask them if they would be willing to see you for a consolation. Be clear about what you hope to achieve, and make sure that they are happy to do that sort of work.
