Omorovicza – Don’t let Dry January mean Dry Skin!

Dry January, the pledge to not drink alcohol for one month is win-win all-round right? More pennies in the bank account, a healthier you and fabulous glowing skin? Well, not exactly. The varying temperature conditions indoors and outdoors, the weather and our general environment can leave the skin looking a bit lacklustre and dry. We all get different symptoms and variations. I, personally, tend to get dry skin around the

Are you ready to Rumble with Sweaty Betty?

If you’re still making an appearance to the gym three times a week like I do, then, raise your bottles of water in toast! You have surpassed most people’s expectations and should be proud. Working out takes a lot of time, determination and energy, and trying to keep things interesting can sometimes become a challenge.  Which is why I love Sweaty Betty’s in-store studio concept where not only can you work

My Little Wish Box

At the beginning of the year when I started planning my January posts, I made a decision that not every beauty box would be reviewed on mrsjonasrecommends.com but only THE best beauty boxes that were bringing something to the table. So with the aim to keep January all about wellness, beauty and general positive vibes, I wasn’t expecting to be featuring any for the month of January. But then my

Nike X Liberty Holiday 15 Collection

Sports and fashion together in the gym have never been of that importance to me. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I want to look good in the gym but who am I really trying to impress with a sweaty red face!? Now fashionable sportswear for every day wear is more up my street. Much to the humour of my friends (as I never wear basic trainers or plimsolls when

Wunderbrow!

Fancy getting perfect Cara Delevigne esq brows in under two minutes? Well so do I! In my opinion, naturally perfect brows are nearly impossible to have or achieve. That first day after threading/waxing or tweezing (whatever your poison may be) is the freshest look that you will achieve and after that, it’s all downhill! Whether it’s a bit of brow gel (or Vaseline for the quick fix), an eye pencil,

Perphone when Beauty meets Tech!

When it comes to carrying around a makeup bag during the day, I think I am pretty good with narrowing down to the bare essentials: lip balm, lipstick, powder, eye pencil. If I’m going out in the evening, then I’ll have a small eyeshadow compact and maybe my blusher too. The one thing I do always regret not carrying or I don’t have a sample or travel-size option just hanging

Can Chocolate really be THAT good for you?

It’s January, the month of diets and healthy eating. Some people vow to give up alcohol and do ‘dry January’ while others decide they are not going to eat anything bad after over indulging during the holidays – and by bad I mean chocolate! So what if I told you that I had found a chocolate proven to actually be good for you with heaps of other benefits? You would

OMG Lashes by Bobbi Brown

Rifling through my emails and reading all the new beauty press releases, it seems that January is THE month focused on mascaras. Whether you want longer, thicker, maximum volume, false effect, or even coloured lashes, there is an option out there for you. Which poses the question you might be asking yourself: “Which mascara should I use/buy”? Well that is entirely dependent on what look you are going for and,

Sunday thoughts contemplating those life goals!

Happy Sunday! As the first week of January comes to a close I was starting to feel a bit conscious that I was totally avoiding writing that obligatory ‘2015 review’ or ‘goals review’ post. So, on my first ‘I have no plans Sunday’ of the year (hopefully with many more to come), I’m feeling wide awake and refreshed – just the perfect time of day to reflect on 2015 and
