sKINCARE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN

Ah sensitive skin. That one skincare type we often shy away at or fear for as stereotypically, we think sensitive skin reacts to anything and everything. In some cases, yes and you may be sat there nodding but not all ‘non natural’ skincare brands and products are irritants for sensitive skin. Fellow skincare enthusiast Emma Hoareau wrote a really interesting piece on Sensitive Skin and spoke about how Essential Oils (often found in natural skincare) are what cause her skin to react whereas chemicals, do the opposite. Everyone’s skin is different and with this post, I hope to share a bit more on sensitive skin, what products to use and steps to include in your routine.

Travel Diaries

Continuing on my Croatia Travel Series, having done island guides and a 48 hour in Dubrovnik post today I wanted to share some of my favourite photos from our trip in a visual postcard style post. For me, there isn't much that beats blue skies, turquoise waters, reading in the sun, snorkelling and exploring new places, so a six week adventure around Croatia was the perfect trip. There is many a story to tell from this trip and many happy memories filled with laughs, love, food and wine. 

 
 
 
BEAUTY AND STYLE BOOKS

The Beauty & Style Books Every Girl Needs

The beauty and fashion hybrid books are one of my favourite ways to gather all kinds of inspiration; the outlook on beauty and skincare, style changes, ways to switch around my daily routines, my outlook on life and career plans. I always have at-least one on my desk which I reach for multiple times in the day if I'm in a creative rut or just want some time away from looking at my laptop. I love everything 'print' from the beautiful pages, colours, fonts, imagery, page designs and always feel incredibly motivated after flicking through this style of book.

It's been a while since I've sat down and shown you guys the contents of my makeup bag; the products that currently have all of my attention and that I can't stop using. I've switched a few things around lately with Summer and the warmer weather but lots of these are old favourites and cult products that don't leave my makeup bag, giving you an idea of Amour Ophelia's best in beauty.

CROATIA POSTCARD

Discovering The Most Beautiful Croatian Island

Covered in luscious green forest and surrounded by turquoise waters, Mljet is the most enticing of the Croatian islands, with 70 percent covered in pine forests, we found paradise. So tranquil and untouched, it feels as though the island is yours. Head west and discover the beauty of the salt water lake National Park and make your way south for untouched coves, white sand beaches and stretches of exceptional, unmissable, scenery. Just one road keeps this island moving, creating an island adventure of complete silence, relaxation and rest. This is Mljet, a guide to how best explore the island; from where to stop and stay, to the most beautiful places to swim.
