Etsy Finds: Raw Stone Jewellery

Etsy is one of my favourite internet black holes so I thought it best to make good use of the hours I spend trawling through and start a new series! Etsy Finds will provide a round up of the most lustworthy buys from whichever section I am lost in each month. 

To kick things off, we have my latest accessory obsession: raw stone jewellery. Raw stones are gorgeous mixed with metals and each piece is guaranteed to be a little bit unique. They are quite casual but are special enough to add a little chic to a relaxed boho type outfit. Here are five pieces that have me itching to reach for my wallet:

5 Uses For Rose Hip Oil

Rose hip oil has been popping up all over the place and has become a beauty blogger favourite - with good reason too! It's a versatile product that can be used on all skin types (yes, it's fantastic for the oily skinned too) and a few drops go a long way. Results are visible almost overnight which is an added bonus. Here are a few ways to use this little miracle in a bottle:

1. Moisturise - use a couple of drops in replacement of a moisturiser or serum before bed to nourish skin overnight and help clear up any acne and reduce scarring or hyperpigmentation.
2. Boost your night cream - for those who have dry skin or live in colder climates adding some rose hip oil to your regular night cream will make it work double time and leave skin feeling soft and plump.
3. Fix a dry scalp - if dry hair or dandruff is an issue, slightly warm a small amount of rose hip oil and massage it into your hair and scalp. Leave it in for 30 to 60 minutes and thoroughly shampoo.
4. Strengthen your nails - rubbing a small amount into your nails one or two times a week will promote stronger, naturally shiny nails.
5. Repair damaged skin - using rose hip oil on dry, chapped skin like rough elbows will heal the area far faster than a moisturiser and improve skin texture.

Which oils do you use as part of your beauty routine?
