May Favorites

That’s another month that has come and gone! It really does feel like 2 minutes ago I was working out my New Year’s resolutions!!

This past month has been truly wonderful! The Husband and I have been away for a few days, completed a few household projects and this weekend we celebrate my Nana’s 90th birthday…so it really has been a fun filled month!

With all that going on, I have spent some time at home and really been enjoying it! So….what has been making me so happy around our home……

In The Kitchen:

The joy of health issues is that no matter what you try and do, they just seem to evolve when you are not looking. Over the last few months I have been slowly removing things from my diet, so I am now in a sort of paleo/dairy and soy free limbo.

The other day I really fancied ice cream…..so….after reading every single label in the supermarket I discovered Booja Booja!

This is an ice cream that has between 4 and 7 ingredients, all of which you can pronounce! This sounds odd my I have this rule that if I don’t know what and ingredient is, I don’t eat it.

Their chocolate and a version of pralines and cream make you feel like you are eating the most guilty treat, but it won’t make me ill….yaaaaay!!

In The Bathroom:

During my journey to find an eating plan that works for me, my skin has really taken a kicking! I’m dry, have a chin breakout and greasy all at the same time!

In an effort to save it I have been using my Foreo face brush more often than my usual routine allows. Bringing this little guy out every other day rather than once a week has really made a difference! Adding a new BioDerma face wash has just made it that much better!!

In The Bedroom:

I made the ultimate skincare fail when The Husband and I were away……I ran out of day cream!! I always have one as a backup, but this month I haven’t been able to get to Boots to stock up!!

As I needed something to go under my SPF in a hurry, I went into John Lewis and looked through my favourite skincare area……The French Skincare section!! I picked up this luxurious Nuxe cream that protects my skin from clogging up with the SPF, but also allows it to do its job!

On days that I am not leaving the house, I have been known to use it on its own in as a nourishing treatment.

The House of Lotz Retreat and Spa (aka The Living Room):

I will go into this in more detail in a Wedding 101 post, but after your wedding there is a little void left behind….mainly in your house where you have been storing it all!

This little void in our home made us both realise that we needed to decorate…ASAP!

Mid-month we stripped everything out of our living room, deep cleaned and redecorated! We have gone from what I now see to be a horrible yellow/cream to a beautiful white/green with a pastel green accent wall. This has made such a refreshing change and I just love it!!

In The Portable House of Lotz (aka in my handbag):

This year I have joined the glasses wearing club! I have been wearing reading glasses for years, but in February I was advised that wearing my chic little glasses all the time!

What comes with wearing glasses full time comes one big massive drama……smudges!! They come out of thin air and just land on your lenses! In a bid to keep these at bay, I picked up these cleaning cloths from Muji. They are like tissues that are slightly treated with lense cleaner. I must admit that I use them more than once because I feel guilty throwing them away after one use, so I have also been using them to clean my phone!!

So that is what I have been loving this month!! What have you guys been loving? What am I missing out on?

Sending hugs and love xXx have a great weekend xXx
