Neal's Yard Remedies x Deliciously Ella | A Deliciously Refreshing Occasion

From natural and organic, inner health to outer beauty, women today are beginning to embrace that healthy lifestyle which encompasses all aspects of our busy life - eating clean, maintaining an active lifestyle (exercising), and also extending it to the skincare and makeup that we choose to put on our body and face. Naturally, Neal's Yard Remedies invitation for us to discover their latest release of  skin loving skincare range, Deliciously Ella, (here for more) which they called it 'Superfood' Skincare collection, caught our interest, previously.

A cosy corner of the B.I.G (Ben's Independent Grocer), at Glo Damansara Mall, the venue for the launch was transformed into what seemed to look like a zesty little market dotted with fresh fruits, green and colourful vegetables, cooling drinks, kitchen utensils and what not to suit the theme for the day. We were pleasantly surprised, to say the least. An award-winning health and beauty brand that is Neal's Yard Remedies, we felt our acquaintance with this ethical organic British brand has come a little too late, but like most say, better late than never, right, more so when it comes to good things for the well-being of a woman. The session started off with the introduction of the brand, as well as the star for the day - Deliciously Ella. It is formulated with partnership with global wellness warrior, popular food blogger and author, Ella Mills, also fondly known as @DeliciouslyElla on Instagram (here for more), whose cookbook sold more copies than Jamie Oliver! (how about that *_^).

Ella Mills is well-known for her strong belief in leading a healthy life, via the change in lifestyle, first and foremost through a purposeful choice of consuming healthy food, incorporating them into plant-based recipes which she herself tried and tested, stripping away processed food, sugar, gluten, meat and dairy products in her diet. She saw tremendous change in herself and therefore vowed to share this passion with more people, hence her cookbooks like Deliciously Ella. Inspired by her cookbook, this special range consists of only two eco-friendly skincare products - Rose, Lime & Cucumber Facial Wash and Rose, Lime & Cucumber Moisturiser (here for more). Both skincare products are mainly infused with ingredients like rose, lime and cucumber (obviously) to help one maintain a healthy skin. We shall share more about our experience using them soon.

Meanwhile, the event was followed by an interesting session of food styling by Trisha Toh, a well-known Malaysian food stylist and photographer (here on instagram) sharing her experience, having us styled our own skincare range to take pictures for the instagram competition, and got us preparing our very own jar of salad mix, all the while enjoying being served the very Classic Almond and Cacao Energy Ball, one of Ella Mills' recipes from her cookbook and thirst-quenching refreshment.

All in all, it was such a great experience getting to know the brand much better. It was a deliciously inspiring session after all. Thanks Neal's Yard Remedies Malaysia for having us! More about the brand here and their instagram updates here. We are loving the philosophy of the brand already *_^

Till our next organic and healthy getaway and adventure, have a luminously beautiful and happy week ahead, lovelies. Special thanks to Aidan Lim, our teenage son, for the beautifully captured visuals this time around *_^

With love,
