Where I’ve Been and My Six Summer Beauty Essentials

It’s been a while, I know! What started out as a short break in the depths of winter turned into a prolonged blog sabbatical, and all within good reason! And if you haven’t heard the news already…there’s a bun in the oven! Baby Jonas is coming winter 2018! So, is there change coming? Well, in terms of MrsJonasRecommends, it’s business as usual with content covering my lifestyle and  – so

Oh, it’s just a bit of seasonal dandruff!

As soon as that flakey scalp appears and the itching starts (oh, how satisfying is it to scratch that itch that is, until that intense panic moment kicks in), head on over to your enlarged mirror to inspect closer and then further freak out – OMG I’ve got nits! (Head lice for those that don’t know.) The following few minutes pass by with the thoughts: What am I going to

My January saviours

And we’ve survived! Can you believe it? The toughest month of the year is actually over! We can all officially start drinking and wearing sparkles again! Most people moan about January – the weather, their bank balances and just how things would just generally be better if it was summer again! Me? Well, I can’t say that I’ve had a bad January! In fact, I can go as far as

The Black Friday and Cyber Weekend/Monday Edit!

Good Morning and welcome to Black Friday, the official Black Friday that is. If you’ve been browsing the internet this week, or have just been doing the odd bit of early Christmas shopping, then you’ll be aware that it is a discount jungle out there. Retailers have started their ‘cyber weekend’ offers earlier and earlier and whilst this is utter temptation, I’m looking at it on the plus side…time to

Which Advent Beauty Calendar should I buy?

I’ve been thinking about writing this post since July…yes, Christmas for me started in July! Long gone are the days of chocolate advent calendars! If you really want to treat yourself or that special someone, then going down the more luxury, beauty or lifestyle calendar is the way forward.  There is nothing more indulgent than the new forms of advent calendars that are now on the market.  Ranging from beauty,

Glossier – One month on and the Pop-up!

It’s been just over a month since the beauty world went into full meltdown from the launch of Glossier shipping to the UK! With a local distribution centre, we now can get our hands on this cult brand and benefit from free standard shipping over £25! A few of my friends have been asking me what Glossier is and what might I recommend. So I thought with Glossier’s one week

It’s officially time to go crackers with Space NK!

Pinch, punch, it’s the first day of the month, and hopefully, it’s officially the start of actual Autumn. We’ve seen the leaves turn red – as they do around this time – but where is that chill factor that justifies staying indoors, wrapped in cosy knits with a mug of hot chocolate or a glass of red wine (depending on what takes your fancy)? Well, it may be slightly mild

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

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

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
