Don’t let print die!

Since the creation or rise of online magazine/sites and e-readers, printed materials (physical books, magazines, etc.) have seen a large decrease in sales. I’m all for progress, and in the society that we live in today, accessing information online is so easy. One can say that it is the most efficient way of being up to date with current news as it is happening, but there is something about this

Why I’ve fallen in love with Mac Cosmetics again this Autumn

Mac Cosmetics was THE brand to shop at when I was younger.  It catered for darker skin tones such as mine, and was the brand that you simply progressed to buying when you could afford a little more than just drug store alternatives. MAC was the brand that got me wearing bright orange and yellow eyeshadow (yes, that was a look when I was 18) and it was the brand

Passport and bank cards aside, the next most important item on your list must be THE bag of the summer, the straw bag. Why have I taken so long – almost the end of summer –

It’s been awhile, in fact, it’s been exactly a month!

But before we start delving into all things Autumn, content wise, I want to share with you four of

Staying safe in Cyprus with Nuxe Sun

Visiting Cyprus during one of the hottest months of the year may sound BAT SHIT CRAZY to some people, but hey, that’s how things worked out for me and Mr J this year and I certainly am not complaining.  Whilst I go into complete melt down when temperatures reach over 30°C in London, when you have a sunbed, some shade and an inviting pool at your disposal, any whinging on my

Are you part of the Anti-Pollution Skincare Revolution?

I used to think that the effects of pollution on our skin was something that was a bit of an over exaggeration by skincare companies in a bid to make you buy their products.  Yes, I know that pollution exists and is bad for the environment but I didn’t really see the effects of it on my skin. I think that was due to the fact that when I did

Six ways to keep your dog cool this summer!

This is a different kind of post for me but if you follow me on social media or you have met some of my furry companions in the flesh, then you will know that I’m obsessed with dogs!  This recent heatwave got me thinking and feeling more than sympathetic for my pawed friends.  As we all might be complaining about the humidity and the heat, but imagine wearing a full

Bio-Extracts your very own vegan skincare lab at home.

Taking a look at my bedside vanity area, it becomes quite evident that I’m not your typical one-potion type of girl. Long gone are the days when I would consider just using one face cream. Our skin goes through different stages throughout the year and not just in line with the seasons. Factors such as weather, pollution, hormones and lifestyle all play a part.  There are days when I class

It’s official…. Summer is here!

Hello heatwave! It’s official, yesterday was the first day of the UK Summer and with temperatures rocketing to 34 degrees, Summer really has arrived with a BANG! We British people love to complain – it’s either too cold or it’s too hot! But I love the heat. You could say I’m a bit of a sun seeker so this heat is pure bliss. However, a pool in my back garden
