How to Have A Fantastic Music List With Minimal Spending

We all know how important it is to de-stress at the end of a hard week. The best way to do this is to chill with some great music. You may have a great music selection, but not all of us are great are being so organised when it comes to finding the right music at the right price.

A fantastic music list comes with a variety of genres.  Music will change to suit your individual need on a specific day. Maybe you fell out with your partner, this calls for romantic sounds. Or maybe you need to let off some steam at the gym, this is where the rock or pop comes in.

Building your list takes time and quite a few years if you have to buy all those albums individually just to get that one song you want. Amazon Music Unlimited gives you everything you could ever want in a list. 

If you sign up to Amazon Prime 30 day trial you can get yourself the first four months of Music Unlimited for £0.99. If you already have Amazon Prime and use their Prime Music you can upgrade to have access to 40 million songs which includes all the top releases. You can download as many songs as you want.

If you have an Amazon Echo you can get Music Unlimited for only £3.99 a month which is a great saving for all that music. Just ask Alexa.

Why not try it free for 30 days and see what difference a fantastic music list can do for your mood, not to mention your social life.

The Lowdown On Wearing White Right

White is so on-trend this season with fashionistas and celebs alike opting for the colour when they are choosing their outfits. After all, it’s the perfect time of year to get those white shirts and dresses out of the wardrobe. And white can do wonders for your figure as you can see with the beautiful Kate Middleton rocking a white outfit at Ascot. However, when it comes to white, a lot of people can go wrong with the colour choice. And it ends up turning their great outfit to a fashion fail if they are not careful, In fact, here is the lowdown you need so you wear white right in future.

Boost your glow before putting on the outfit

It’s so important that you give your skin a healthy glow before you put on a white outfit. While white can look good on everyone, it can make you look paler than you actually are. So if you have not managed to get a good colour yet this season, it could send you into the Adams Family territory. Therefore, give your skin a boost in colour before you put on that white dress. You might want to spend some time out in the sun if you want to boost your natural tan. That way, you will have a natural glow when you are wearing all white. Or it might be the case you use a bronzer to give you a tan look. That way, the outfit will look superb. And if you do want to go down the fake tan look, make sure it’s properly on before you put on that cute white outfit. After all, you don’t want streaks of tan on your clothes which will turn your outfit into a fashion fail!

Be careful with your underwear

A lot of people make an error when wearing white by not thinking about their underwear. In fact, it can often lead to a very embarrassing situation if people can see the underwear through your clothes. You will look back with regret you didn’t spend longer choosing your underwear. Therefore, when it comes to white clothes, make sure you opt for underwear which will be barely seen through your outfit. It applies to both your bra and pants, so you aren’t left squirming with embarrassment. And if you did want to go for a beige or cream, make sure you look in the mirror first before wearing them. That way, you can ensure you stay classy and fashionable while wearing white!

Accessorise well

You also need to turn your attention to your accessories when you are wearing white. After all, it can help to complete your outfit if you choose well with your accessories. You might want to go for a simple white necklace and bracelet. They will look great with the outfit and will ensure you look flawless. You also might want to go for a belt which can help to cinch in the waist on your outfit. And remember to opt for a colourful bag to go with the outfit. It can sprinkle some much-needed colour into your whole ensemble.

And make sure it’s an appropriate event for a white outfit. After all, you don’t want to turn up to a wedding in a white dress!

Naturally Blended Soaps From The Camel Soap Factory

While looking through the exhibitor list for the Love Natural, Love You show on at Olympia London, I came across The Camel Soap Factory. As I'm always researching different natural products online, I was intrigued by the idea of Camel's Milk Soap. 

My first reaction was of surprise as I hadn't ever heard of camel's milk let alone skincare products made from it. But after going to the company website and having a look around I was convinced that this is a good naturally sourced ingredient that can be used in many products.

More About The Camel Soap Factory

The Camel Soap Factory is originally based in Dubai with a UK base (Cheshire) selling their products from their online shop. They are keen to bring camel soap to the forefront of the market which is why they are attending the Love Natural, Love You show on 7th-9th July at the Olympia, London. Free tickets are available from the link above.

Unique Properties Of Camel Milk

Camel Milk is unique in its own way. It has immune boosting properties and very small immunoglobulins which pass through the bloodstream much more easily than cow's milk. Which is said to have healing effects on autoimmune diseases. As well as being more tolerable in the gut than cow's milk.

It is thought that Camel's Milk is high in insulin making it beneficial for diabetics. The protective proteins that are said to be found in the milk are antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal. 

Using Camel's Milk

By drinking camel's milk, you will benefit from a range of high proteins and healing abilities. And by using the Camel Milk Soap you will benefit from the antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial properties by washing with the soap. It is said to be highly effective for skin conditions like psoriasis, acne and eczema.

The milk also contains valuable alpha-hydroxy acids which plump up the skin and smooth fine lines. Making this unique soap a beauty essential for anyone trying to minimise the signs of ageing.

Children's Soap

The Camel Soap Factory also cater towards children. Being a natural formula and great for sensitive skin they have produced a range of children's soap in wonderful animal shapes. Keeping the younger members of the family involved with their own natural products.

Camel's Milk Soap Ingredients

The soap is made from 100% natural ingredients. Every bar of soap has a minimum of 25% camel's milk along with other natural ingredients which include;  
  • Olive oil
  • Beeswax 
  • Essential oils
The soap does not contain any parabens or sulphates.

Camel's Milk Lip Balm

The lip balm is naturally blended with coconut oil, almond, beeswax and shea butter. The healing properties of camel milk are added and natural oils to create a luscious flavoured soothing lip balm. The lip balm comes in four delicious flavours; Sweet Orange, Peppermint, Strawberry and an unscented for those of you who are highly sensitive to smells and flavours.
