The Starting Over Tag

August 12, 2014

I was tagged by Stephanie of Gone Natural Love. I often see her comments on my videos and blog posts plus I have been and on-and-off reader of her blog (Stephanie - get on Bloglovin so I can follow you!) so thought I would get in on this tag action!

The idea of The Starting Over tag is to imagine that all of your cosmetic and personal care items are gone (lost, stolen, whatever) and you can replace/repurchase only 16 of them... which would you choose?

I love the idea of this as it makes you identify your 'must have' and favourite items so I think it would make for an interesting read, I will certainly be tagging people at the end!

Here is my list:

1. Coconut Oil (Raw, organic, fair trade - use it as a body moisturiser and in DIYs)
2. Almond Oil (Cold pressed, use it as make up remover and in DIYs)
3. Squalene Oil (The All Natural Face - use it as my main face moisturiser)
4. Salt of the Earth Deodorant 
5. Bodhi & Birch Mint The Shower Therapy
6. Konjac Sponge
7. La Mav Mineral Foundation
8. TANF Tequila Sunrise Blush
9. Pumpkin & Poppy English Rose Cream Blush
10. Green People Mascara
11. Red Apple Lipstick City Starter Palette (that counts as one, right?)
12. Aloe Dent Toothpaste
13. Shea Butter (so I can make DIY lip balm and body butter)
14. TANF Liquid Liner in Hot Fudge Brownie
15. Brija Cosmetics Yvonne Lip Jelly
16. Tangle Teezer hair brush (not sure if that counts but if that went I would be lost!)

(I didn't mention shampoo or conditioner as I use Maddie's Child's Farm ones... and her stuff isn't missing... okay, I cheated!!)

I'd love to see what everyone's answers would be but just to get us started off I will tag a few people:

Amber from Amber's Beauty Talk
Jen from Jen's Green Skincare
Sarah from Sugarpuffish
Tamara from Rainbow Feet
Katie from Katie Vibes
Louise from Kinder Health and Beauty

But anyone that wants to do it please do, I'd love to read your answers and see what is most important to you!
