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

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

Pre-Holiday exfoliation with the African Ximenia Scrub

Happy Thursday! I start this post on a positive note as today is my last day in the office whilst I escape off with Mr J for a few days of R&R. I won’t be totally switching off (the whole digital detox is still something I’m working on). Think baby steps folks, I’m starting with just ten minutes a day with the Colouring myself calm challenge that you can read

Caudalie Instant Detox Mask

Caudalie has become one of my favourite brands this year having discovered them towards the end of last year after I attended their Covent Garden store event (you can read my post here). If you read my posts daily, you’ll know that I try a lot of products and give my honest opinion on them. So, what’s so different about this brand and what gives it the wow factor? Well

Colour Yourself Calm THE CHALLENGE!

Colour yourself calm? Yes you read right! This is the new trend that is sweeping the nation. Not one to always follow trends especially when it comes to fashion (I know what works as I am over 30 after all!), this one I had to make an exception on.   After hesitantly offering to do the weekly food shopping in our local supermarket on my day off, may I add

My Little Gypset Box

It’s been two months since my last My Little Box review. Just to show that I am still loving it and highly recommend that you subscribe, here is an overview from my latest August box entitled ‘My Little Gypset box’. Whilst some subscription boxes can be a bit of hit and miss month by month, My Little Box seems to have mastered getting it right. If I’m being honest, I
