Does your eye cream contain SPF?

All skincare specialists will drum it down on you how important it is to wear SPF and so will I! SPF protects your skin from sun damage, skin diseases and can slow down the signs of aging. These days it is not a constant battle nor is it expensive to buy a face cream that contains an SPF rating higher than 10! It was during a conversation with one of

Sunday Brunch: Buckwheat Pancakes

Sundays are all about Sunday Brunch! Whether you like getting dressed up and going out for it or are a bit of a master chef in the making and like experimenting and rustling up a feast (after you’ve had your morning coffee, of course).

Cooking with Organic Japanese Umami Paste

Trying to jazz up my lunches and dinners is a constant quest that I am on as there is nothing worse than a bland meal or a boring salad.  So when I was invited to Clearspring HQ to sample, learn and even cook side by side with Madonna’s previous chef I was quick to accept! That is when I discovered Umami, Clearspring’s latest launch. What is umami? Umami is the

Vector Watches Fashionable Everyday Tech

When I started thinking about writing this post, it got me all nostalgic thinking about how times have changed and how technologically has moved forward so much. When I got my first watch as a child – which was a Swatch watch (all the rage at the time) – I was over the moon. In fact, I think I still have the remains of it stored away in a keep

The Precious Petals Beauty Box

This is the season when all our beloved gardens, parks, and road side flower beds are in full bloom. Spring is really upon us and everything is bright and floral. So when Jane Cunningham from The BritishBeautyBlog teamed up with Latest in Beauty and the L’Occitane family to produce a floral inspired box, it was guaranteed to be a sell out (as it was). If that box launch happened to

The One Sentence A Day Meaningfulness Journal

I never thought that I would be the type of person to have a meaningfulness journal! But then, what type of person is that right? I have no idea! I guess I AM that type of person. Towards the end of last year, my life was crazy. I was working full time, attending events, writing my blog (like it was my full time focus) and socialising. If you asked me
