Origins High Potency Night a Mins Night Cream

Origins High Potency Night a Mins Cream.

Need a new night cream or does your face need a bit of a boost and pick me up in this snowy weather? Look no further.

I have tried a few night cream but to be honest was never blown away and didn't see much point in using a different cream at night and often used to skip the step all together (not good I know-slaps wrist....) but since I bought the Origins cream I use it nearly every night of the week and absolutely love it. I think its because I can feel a difference and the appearance of your skin is so radiant, refreshed and plumped that you want to use it! It's packed full of goodness. It has an orangey smell to it which is quite strong but not too overpowering. I have sensitive skin and havn't had any problems. The fragrance is also quite calming and fresh in my opinion. The cream is thick and luxurious and feels cooling on the skin. I slather it on before bed and wake up with a whole new face (not quite but you get the idea! ) It is a tad pricey-around the £32 mark but totally worth it. Mine has lasted a while and I use it a lot.

Highly recommend it. Pop down to your local Origins counter to have a look or ask for a tester (the ladies at mine are lovely. They always give testers and advice and not just try to sell to you.)

Let me know your opinions of the cream and please recommend any other night creams!

Road trip! A look back on our epic trip to Canada!

Toronto Blue Jays v Kansas City Royals @ Rogers Centre Toronto, Canada
A look back at my boyfriends and I summer road trip to Canada.....we had such an amazing time. We went for a holiday and to see the country and to visit my boyfriends uncle who he hadn't seen in many decades! Places we  visited were Toronto, Orangeville, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City with a fair few little stop offs on the way. Phewww it was a long trip but I would recommend a trip like it to anyone. We took two weeks and wish we could have stayed longer. We saw so much and were pleased we arranged it all ourselves as we could top wherever and whenever we wanted. Luckily as it was summer there was so much going on from a massive music festival in Quebec City to outdoor concerts in Toronto and Cirque de Soleil in Montreal.

Canada is such a gorgeous place and we will be back in the future! Take a look at the photos and let me know any recommendations of good holiday destinations or any places in Canada we should go to on our next visit!
