Oh, it’s just a bit of seasonal dandruff!

As soon as that flakey scalp appears and the itching starts (oh, how satisfying is it to scratch that itch that is, until that intense panic moment kicks in), head on over to your enlarged mirror to inspect closer and then further freak out – OMG I’ve got nits! (Head lice for those that don’t know.) The following few minutes pass by with the thoughts: What am I going to

My January saviours

And we’ve survived! Can you believe it? The toughest month of the year is actually over! We can all officially start drinking and wearing sparkles again!

It’s time to go coconutty with CO YO!

Coconuts are a thing! Not a fad, not a trend and definitely not a passing obsession but a thing. These tasty food items are often the topic of discussion – are they a fruit, seed or nut?

Well, not exactly but hopefully you can see where I

The Black Friday and Cyber Weekend/Monday Edit!

Good Morning and welcome to Black Friday, the official Black Friday that is. If you’ve been browsing the internet this week, or have just been doing the odd bit of early Christmas shopping, then you’ll be aware that it is a discount jungle out there.

Which Advent Beauty Calendar should I buy?

I’ve been thinking about writing this post since July…yes, Christmas for me started in July! Long gone are the days of chocolate advent calendars! If you really want to treat yourself or that special someone, then going down the more luxury, beauty or lifestyle calendar is the way forward.  There is nothing more indulgent than the new forms of advent calendars that are now on the market.  Ranging from beauty,

With a local distribution centre, we now can get our hands on this cult brand and benefit from free standard shipping over £25!
