H&M The Beauty Department

H&M is undoubtedly my go-to store and that of many of my friends. It is the definition of fast, affordable fashion that caters for all ages. Over the past few years, we have seen the brand expand into home and baby wear causing a bit of a stir on the high street and potentially driving in a new array of customer base that maybe didn’t consider H&M as a shop

The Activist By Mio

I’m a total body oil convert! Especially oils of the dry kind that easily sink in and don’t leave any pesky oil marks on my clean clothes! So when I came across the Mio Activist Oil especially with their Fit Skin For Life tag line, I was just keen to try. However, I was slightly concerned that this was an oil only to be used by the serious gym bunnies

Struggling to find that perfect foundation match?

Finding that perfect foundation match can be a bit like trying to find a needle in a haystack. With no universal colour wheel for brands to create foundations by shades, texture and pigments, one tends to change from brand to brand. With the type of foundation choice also being added to the mix like dewy, natural, radiant, matt, illuminating, mousse etc – you get what I’m saying here – there

Mrs Jonas Recommends AW Wishlist via Monnier Freres

As London Fashion Week closes for yet another year, the fashion tribes move onto Milan and the seasons swiftly change from summer to autumn. It’s the perfect time to have a summer clear out and make way for some new autumn winter goodies. Those shorts that you said you were going to lose weight to fit into in January or that dress that you wore three summers ago but just

My Little Fashion Box

As London Fashion week is in full swing, I felt it was only fair that I fully encompassed myself in it in my own Mrs J way, with of course some highly relevant beauty content. This month, I take you back to my favourite subscription box company, My Little Box. Not having paid any attention to any spoilers from the My Little Beauty Team, I was actually pleasantly surprised to

SWIG – Exceptional Hip Flasks for Exceptional People

A few weeks ago, Mr J’s friend aka today’s groom-to-be, Tim, asked me what he should get Mr J as a gift for being his best man and honestly, I was stumped and lost for inspiration. You see, we all get to that age when there really isn’t ever a need for anything, more of a want. The only real thing I could think of that Mr J might like

EOS Balms

I’ve started a bit of a lip care theme here all by accident. But as I have already posted about how to make your own DIY Sugar Lip Scrub – here, and the shop bought alternative (Fabulips by Bliss) – here, I thought of continuing on the lip theme. That being said, I am sharing with you some of the lip balms that I’m loving right now. And when I

Summer Secrets By Jane Green

I have read nearly every Jane Green book going (with exception to two that I have in my pile of ‘to read’ books). Each book Jane writes, I have had no complaints with. Starting with the first book that I picked up called Jeminia J. Each plot is carefully thought, with just enough detail to get you hooked and wanting more. Whilst most authors tend to have a particular style

Beach Side Essentials Part Two

If you’ve been following my recent travels via my last two posts, you will know that they have taken on the all-encompassing holiday theme. Covering the pre-holiday prep in the form of exfoliation are my holiday mini-hero’s here. Today and in future posts to come, the post holiday makeup colour match dilemma! So it’s only fair that I throw in my beach essentials part two, to accompany my beach essentials

Holiday Mini Hero’s

Hola! Greetings from the sunny Balearic Islands in Spain where me and Mr J have been enjoying a bit of R&R. Not wanting to rub it in any further (in case it’s raining over in the UK) and moving swiftly on, I wanted to share with you my holiday heroes. Going on short haul holidays is the perfect opportunity for me to try out those new mini beauty samples that
