Inika Long Lash Mascara Review - Organic Beauty

I've been using this mascara for a while and I have to finally announce it is my favourite! I have tried quite a few Inika products over the last year (full review coming soon) but I have to say this is the best. Often there is a lot of hype about products that turn out to be... meh... but this one lives up to its reputation.

"We were born out of a need to detox. Conscious consumers were already removing harmful chemicals from their homes and diet, replacing them with wholesome, pure and natural alternatives. When it came to makeup, there wasn’t a healthy option.
A pioneer in Certified Organic ingredients and healthy beauty, INIKA delivered that and more. We quickly gained a loyal following.
At INIKA, we’re passionate about quality. All our ingredients are ethically sourced, natural and derived from botanicals or minerals.
Our award-winning range is loved by women all over the world." Inika
This mascara is really good at making your lashes super long which I love. It can sometimes run easily so make sure you take it off at night, however, it will last all day! The main things I love about it are the length that it gives you and how natural the formula is. For some natural beauty products, they can't compete with others because of issues with more natural ingredients changing the formulation and the way the product applies. However, I personally have not found that at all with this mascara, it is one of the best ones I've ever used especially for length and would give any other brand a run for its money! 
(plus it is organic so...)
It has a long thin brush which I like forgetting my lower lashes and the corners ones coated. So far has lasted me quite well without drying out and is still going strong 7 months later!

North Wales - What I did, saw and ate on my trip!

I recently spent a lovely weekend in North Wales and I thought I would share what I saw/did/ate with you all! It is one of my favourite places to go on holiday and one of my favourite places to be in the world.

We stayed in a small air bnb near Llanberis lake (unfortunately I don’t have a photo). It cost £35.00 a night which between two people is very reasonable! I wanted to stop in this area of North Wales as it is close to Snowdon while also not being too far from the beach and other attractions.
On the first night, we arrived late to our little stone cottage so we didn’t really see the area. The next morning we got up early and went climbing Snowdon and we got to see more of the area we had travelled the night before on the way back; oh my god it was beautiful with the sun out!
Steep scree slopes and slate quarries glistened in the sun with the odd sheep basking in the rare warmth. We got to Snowdon and it was so busy we had to park at the hotel at the bottom of the next valley. This added a good mile uphill onto our journey and coming back down I definitely felt it! We went up to the miners' track (classic!) and down the pyg track which are the only routs I’ve ever walked up Snowdon.
The day was cold but sunny and there were still splashes of snow across the hilltops.

On our second day, we drove over the stunning Menai Bridge and went to Beaumaris Castle. One of the last Castles to be built by Edward the 1st it was still very imposing! While we were there we went to a lovely local butcher selling local Welsh produce and had a coffee and cake in Jolly's cafe!

I would defo recommend this cafe if you are dairy or gluten-free as they had some very good choices!

We then went for some food at Dylans, as I love seafood and I wanted to try as much local food as I could. One of my favourite things about Wales is all the local and fresh produce, the small businesses who make delicious food! 

I had local lobster and Menai Bridge oysters while I could see Menai Bridge.. that is locally caught fish!

We then went on to Llanddwyn Beach to look at the lighthouse and Santes Dwynwen old monastery ... very brisk with some lovely views of the mountains of Snowdonia. You have to park at the nature reserve which charges £4.00 for the day but it is defo worth it!

On our last day in North Wales, we visited bounce below which is basically trampolining in a cave... if you get a chance go it is amazing though be warned it is high! It took me a while to get used to the highest and the nets but when I did it was so much fun.

On the way back we also visited the Rhug Estate Organic Farm shop which I am obsessed with! very ethical it is an organic farm shop with quite a few twists... like a drive through amazing food and a field of bison!
