NEOM Feel Good on the Go Collection

NEOM Travel Essentials

I have only tried a hand cream from NEOM which came free with a magazine a couple of years ago. So I was excited to be able to try a couple of treats from their new Feel Good on the Go Collection. Which is,

A collection of powerful mini products that are packaged individually in travel-friendly containers and use Neom’s 100% natural essential oil blends. Keep in your handbag, travel bag or gym bag to take with you on the go’.

What a great idea and I love the idea of being able to apply beautiful essential oils on the go, or have them for traveling. These are packaged beautifully and are the perfect size for your handbag, on the plane or keeping on your desk at work.

This new collection are all miniature versions of some of Neom’s best selling products, so they’re now available in the sweetest on the go sizes. Why does everything just look 100% better when its travel size?

There are 10 products in the Feel Good on the Go Collection and they help – relieve stress, calm & relax aid sleep, boost your energy  or lift your mood. I want all of those things on a daily basis (who doesn’t). I have been trying the Burst of Energy range for the past couple of weeks and they I have really enjoyed using them and think the lovely lady at NEOM picked the perfect duo for me to test, because if there is one thing I need at the moment it is energy!

NEOM

NEOM Energy Boosting Treatment* £8

Made with our 100% natural Neom Burst of Energy™ fragrance is a seriously potent blend of 17 of the purest, first pressed essential oils including grapefruit, lemon and rosemary, purposefully chosen for their powerfully energising properties. Lasts on the skin for up to 3 hours providing an uplifting boost of energy throughout the day.

The scent is not heady or overpowering but light and quite familiar whilst having a touch of luxury about it too – I would totally wear this as a perfume. I can really pick out the lemon and grapefruit which are zesty and instantly make me feel energised. It smells like fresh Summers day and I think thats why it makes me feel awake and raring to go. The scent does stick around for a good amount of time and I find I only need to apply this a couple of times a day. I have been applying it in the morning and afternoon and its been making my mood feel uplifted and calm which gives me more energy.

This 5ml glass bottle has a handy roller ball applicator which makes applying this treatment on the go so easy. I apply it to my pulse points and take a moment to breathe it in and let the essential oils work their magic.

NEOM on the Go Collection

NEOM Energy Boosting On The Go Mist* £8

This is the same as the previous product with the same essential oils and energising properties but its a mist, so you get a 5ml bottle with a spray dispenser instead of a roller ball applicator. I like to spray this when I am at my desk, I sit for a moment and breath it in and the sent is quite calming and also energising. The zesty lemon & grapefruit really smell so good and help you take a moment to pause and feel uplifted.

The essential oils in each of these Neom products have been carefully selected to help with your wellbeing and have real therapeutic properties. I like that Neom is all about products that not only smell incredible but that also have therapeutic benefits. The tag line for this new range is ‘Scent to make you feel good’ and I 100% agree.

NEOM Travel Minis

I absolutely love the Energy Boosting duo and think at £8 each are a busy person handbag must have. The other products in this range also sound great especially if you have trouble sleeping, get stressed in certain situations or just like to give your mood a little wellbeing boost. These are all 5ml so you can take them with you where ever you go and for £8 each you would be mad not to! I am going to stock up for my next trip away.

If you have any Neom product recomendations then I would love to hear them. I have always heard positive things about their candles.

NEOM products are 100% natural, ethically sourced and finally crafted in the UK.

Jurlique Precious Rose handcream

Australian Skincare Brand Jurlique

The hand cream comes beautifully packaged in a sleek cream tube with red metallic writing and lid, it looks and feels very luxurious. It feels and smells indulgent, the rose scent is intense and beautiful (don’t think old lady think vibrant and luxurious). I really like rose scented products and they’re something Jurlique do very very well, this Precious Rose Hand Cream leaves my hands feeling instantly nourished and visibly smooth, there is no greasy residue left behind at all. If like me you have very dry hands then this cream will leave them velvety soft and it provides lasting hydration. After you apply this cream the rose fragrance stays on your hands for quite a while which is lovely.

You get a whopping 150ml of product and for a hand cream thats a substantial amount so this is going to last me months. Its currently sat (looking pretty) on my bedside table and I like to apply it morning and night taking time to really massage it in to my hands.

So this joins a very long line up of products I like & would recommend you trying, but remember this is limited edition so be quick if you want to treat yourself.

ban.do Florabunda 17 Month Agenda

I’m not a very organised person, its something I want to get better at and what better place to start than to purchase a pretty planner. I have been hunting for a cute but functional planner for ages & I came across the most beautiful ban.do one in Paperchase, completely by chance. I can’t find a link to it on Paperchase but here it is on the USA Ban.do Shop.

Ban.do are an LA based company that create the cutest bright bold stationery. I have no idea how I’ve only just discovered them, I am late to the party. I now have half of their website on my wishlist, this could get expensive.

BAN.DO 17 MONTH LARGE AGENDA - FLORABUNDA

I bought the ban.do 17 month large agenda with the Florabunda cover, it cost £25.00 and I love it! The good thing about it is it runs from August 2015 and ends in December 2016, so that means there are no wasted months with me purchasing it more than halfway through 2015, I get to begin planning right away. I’m so excited I have never owned something like this, I have only written a few lists & important dates in so far but I’m hoping to have lots of blog posts planned out for the upcoming months. I want to use it as a blog planner but also as a brief journal / diary of what I do each day. That way I will get the most use from it and there is plenty of space for me to do both.

Do you use a planner & has it helped you organise your life / blog more?

The Florabunda Agenda has a beautifully bright floral patterned hard cover and is spiral bound, I have the larger 8×10 size which is quite large but its a great size if you want just one planner for life, work & I will be using it as a daily diary too. I wanted to make the most of it and so will be using it for everything. Its quite heavy so I won’t be carrying around with me (too much, I will mostly be using it at home and thats why I really like that it lays flat & it can sit open on your desk on a specific page / week to remind you what you have on that week.

ban.do florabunda planner

This planner is jam packed with the cutest illustrations, inspirational & motivational slogans and there is so much room for you to make notes, plan, organise and keep a track of all those important dates.

So it opens up to a blue sleeve with ‘You are the stars you are the galaxy’ in cute font, – I’ve been keeping stickers and a few lists in the sleeve. All the sections are tabbed so its easy to flick to the month you need and a gold elastic keeps the planner closed when you’re not using it. Oh & like that this planner lays flat which makes it easy to write in & means the spine doesn’t get all creased and damaged.

Cute bando Planner

bando planner review

You get a two page spread at the beginning of each month with uplifting slogans & cute artwork. I love these & my favourites are ‘Being Nice is Cool’ & ‘Your Future Looks Bright’. Each month has two pages for notes which I have been using to make lists & jot down dates that haven’t been finalised.

Then each month has a month to view over two pages and after that you get the standard week over two pages layout. I find this layout gives me enough space but I know the smaller boxes for the weekends are an issue for people, but I’m never that busy at the weekend (homebody) so this layout works fine for me.

ban.do Florabunda 17 month agenda

There is a page of bright sassy fun stickers to use throughout your planner, I might be in my 30’s but still get excited over stickers. Its a nice fun start to the planner. Then they give you a list of important holidays (American dates) and they have thrown is some cute fun days – like National Piña Colada Day, National Cat Day and National Flower Day!

October in bando planner

There are so many little touches / details in this planner, its been so well put together. The quality of the cover and pages is very good, if something has to last you from 17 months you want it to be well made and this ban.do planner certainly feels like good quality.

I didn’t want to give too much away in the photos, but there are quite a few reviews of these planners online if you want a more in depth look at all the pages. Ban.do summarise this planner with some great bullet points,

  • 17-MONTH AGENDA (AUG 2015 – DEC 2016)
  • GLOSSY PAPER-WRAPPED HARD COVER
  • SPIRAL-BOUND, LAY FLAT DESIGN
  • ELASTIC BAND CLOSURE
  • DOUBLE-SIDED POCKET PAGE
  • THE CUTEST STICKER PAGE OF ALL TIME (WITH EXTRA STICKERS!)
  • COLOR-CODED MONTH TABS
  • CHEERFUL ILLUSTRATIONS THROUGHOUT
  • FUN TO-DO’S FOR EACH WEEKEND
  • A BUNCH OF SPECIAL HOLIDAYS

Let me know what planner you use & I will do an updated post in a couple of months to let you know if I am in fact more organised & if I have been keeping up to date with filling it in. Wish me luck.
