It’s a new month, it’s getting colder and its pre-party season. We say, it’s the perfect time to prioritise self-care. This October, we’re collaborating with honest, vegan skincare brand Miss Patisserie to give you the perfect excuse to look after your body and mind.
This time of year, it’s easy to feel stressed out, and a bit down in the dumps. Especially when you’re on your period.
At times like this self-care is so important. Show yourself some love, and take care for your body. Even if you can only spare an hour a week, turn off your phone, and indulge in something you enjoy. Whether it’s a heart-warming book, a soak in the bath or a bit of soothing pampering. Life is busy, and can be VERY hectic at times. If you forget to look after yourself, then you can quickly burnout. Make a change this October, and do right by your body.

What are Miss Patisserie all about?
If you’re yet to discover Miss Patisserie then here’s your chance to find out more about the brand and the founder, Charlotte Simoes. In this Q&A Charlotte gives us a peak into what inspired Miss Patisserie and the vegan range:
When and why did you start the company?
In 2009, I started Miss Patisserie from my kitchen after being off work with a broken leg. It started as a hobby and a way to keep busy but formulating fascinated me and that’s where the passion began. I would also say that we have a had a re-birth this year with new branding and launching in Boots.
What was your inspiration?
It’s always changing with the trends but the main origin of inspiration is ingredients. We are always sourcing and researching high quality ingredients that are the most beneficial. I’m becoming more inspired with superfood trends as well. The gap between inner and outer beauty is slowly closing as we are looking to powerful food ingredients for cosmetic benefits.
Tell us about your products
Our products are fun and creative but also not full of nasties. They are kind to animals and the environment.
Your range is vegan, why do you think this is important
There are so many fantastic ingredients out there and the vast majority are vegan. Plant based ingredients have so many powerful properties that there is no need to use any animal bi-product in our opinion.
What’s your top relaxation tip?
Run a bath, light some candles with essential oils and take 20 minutes having a digital detox
What is your favourite self-care routine?
Walking the dogs every morning clears the mind and gets me motivated for the day. I think it’s so important to keep the body active – especially throughout autumn and winter. Another favourite is exfoliating and gently scrubbing away the dead skin cells to help with cell renewal.
What’s your favourite product from the Miss Patisserie range?
The sugar scrubs I love as they are so hydrating as well as moisturising. Lotus Flower is a beautiful scent. I also love bath crumble as well because you can tailor the amount.
