Indulge in the Super Spice of 2016 with Higher Living’s Golden Turmeric Tea

As super spices go, it’s all about turmeric at the moment that every health article or health food blogger is raving about it. This wonder spice has been used in cooking (the yellow powder mainly in curries) and as part of traditional Indian medicine and culture for many centuries. The beauty of turmeric, unlike other expensive super foods or grains that get pushed into the limelight, is that it is

All Aboard the Good Ship Benefit!

Last week, I was one lucky girl to have been invited on board the Good Ship Benefit! Not sure what I’m taking about? Then head on over to the Embankment in London and sure enough you will see a pink ship. Yes, you read right – a full on pink ship formally known as the R.S Hispaniola having been transformed into this pink machine by the very creative team at

Mio Fit Skin for Life

Okay, so who joined the gym in January but hasn’t looked at their gym trainers in the last month? This is the common scenario that many of us see ourselves in. I’m partially guilty of the above! I always train once a week with a personal trainer, walk a lot, and try and go to a few cardio/interval training classes and yoga where I can. However, the past few months

The BB power duo from Tarte!

The last few years has seen the rise of BB’s CC’s and soon enough I’m sure there will be DD’s. So what is a BB? BB stands for Blemish Balm. Working as a base or a primer, a good BB product can be worn alone – perfect when you have a tan – to give off that natural glow, or underneath your foundation working as a great flawless base. I

My Sunday Night Facial Routine!

Happy Sunday! After a busy weekend of socialising with our family and friends (quite usual in the Jonas household), I like to take a bit of time out: light a candle, read a magazine and go into full on face mask and nail painting mode. If you follow me on Instagram/Snapchat, you would have seen that every now and then, I post what my current Sunday night routine is. And

Alessandra Ferri partners with No7 as the brand heads in a new global direction!

Last week I was invited as a guest of No7 to watch an exclusive performance from Alessandra Ferri and Federico Bonelli as they present a pas de deux from Wayne McGregor’s Woolf Works!

#LFBLOOMS the box that takes are of you and the earth!

I write about and review a lot of beauty brands and boxes. Some follow a simple formula of brand discovery, others work on monthly themes and sometimes, just sometimes, a brand follows its own trusted formula but produces something of importance: education and of course a way for you to discover new products. So this month, LookFantastic has embraced all things beauty with a difference in celebration of Earth Month.

Win a Trip to Sri Lanka and Discover your Inner Compass!

What’s your travel inspiration? That’s the first question that I got asked when Black Tomato teamed up with Anthropologie to home in on what myself and other travel junkies use for inspiration when using their inner compass to decide on their next destination of choice. People travel for so many different reasons in both business and pleasure. For me, travelling is a way to experience new cultures, take in beautiful

Vetiver Insolent By Miller Harris

Perfumes mean many different things to different people. For some, wearing a perfume is something they do on a daily basis becoming a part of their identity that people associate that smell with that person. For others it’s about evoking memories and remembering special occasions. For me, as I have written about before, it defines my mood or expectations for the day. And by that I mean if it’s a
