DGJ Organics Hangover Haircare

After spending an amazing day yesterday celebrating my friends Kelly and Sean’s Wedding over a few too many drinks, there were only two things that I really needed today – a nice cup of tea and my Hangover Hair Shampoo and Conditioner – to rescue me out of the pit that I was in!  Let me present DGJ Organics…………. DGJ Organics is a brand that was developed over 8 years ago by

Toucan Box

With May’s half term in full swing and the panic of a long summer holiday for the children ahead, parents everywhere are starting to break a little sweat as to how they are going to keep their kids occupied.  Let’s face it! We can’t rely on the weather to be always nice so that they can play outside all day in the garden or in a park.  Not having any kids of

Vote Lime Blossom and Honey as the next Great British LipBalm

  The last few weeks have been a bit of a whirl-wind. I was thinking about entering the next ‘Great British Lip balm Competition’, trying and testing ideas to get through to the semifinals and then to the finals.  So whilst I have been asking all my family, friends and literally everyone I know to vote for me, I felt it was only fair that I shared my journey to

Beach Reads

Going on a holiday is the perfect time to lose yourself in a good book. So that was just what I and my best friend did (in between glasses of Prosecco and daily naps).  Whilst I managed to finish The Girl with All the Gifts, my best friend only managed to get to chapter four – so Jess, hurry up! However in her defense, I did arrive armed with every magazine

Magnitone Lucid The Daily Cleansing and Exfoliation Brush

Well now you can have that feeling right in your very own home with a Magnitone Lucid.  If you’re not familiar with the Magnitone brand then the easiest way for me to describe the Magnitone Lucid is that it is a giant electric toothbrush for the face! The Magnitone facial brush uses

Heart Beauty Essentials Beauty Box

Evening all, sorry for the delayed post today.  After getting off a very long flight back from Jamaica and not sleeping more than an hour on the plane, jet lag started to get the better off me along with a sad case of the holiday blues! Desperately in need of a quick pick me up, I was very happy to see that Latest In Beauty had launched another fantastic collaboration

Balance Me Oil

The History: Since last summer, I’ve been switching up my standard body/ face lotion for body/ face oil. Guaranteed I’ve had a few failures because I have already dressed  only to have to change again as there are visible oil marks all over my clothes where the oil hasn’t sunk in or dried. As with body oils, facial oils can differ in absorption rate, amount to use, ability to use

Beach Side Beauty Essentials Part One

  Island life – a lifestyle that I was born for.  If you have been keeping up with my weekly posts, you will know that I was planning a trip away to sunnier climes and yes, I have landed in paradise otherwise known as the beautiful Island of Jamaica!  With a view of long sandy stretch of beach right on my porch, clear blue water, a can of Red Stripe

Ginvera Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel

Green Tea has recently become my health obsession. I drink it, bathe in it and now it seems I can exfoliate in it as well! One of the Green Tea products that I have been really getting into is ‘Ginvera’, a cult brand that has been helping Asian skin maintain flawless beauty. One of their products that I really like is ‘Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel’. This is a product

Travel in Style with Lulu Guinness Luggage

If you have been keeping up to date on my blog then you will know that I’m going on holiday –  yay!  It’s a bit of a running joke in my family that me and my brother don’t actually own a suitcase and always turn up at our family home to ‘surprise’ our parents with a spontaneous visit (but really to borrow a suitcase).  This year I thought it was
