However, taking the current season into account, I felt it was more important to focus on the damaging effects of the strong

Awaken those senses with Bean Body’s Coffee Bean Scrub

Still haven’t worked out how to use the timer on the boiler yet? Yes, that’s me too!…so whilst I plan to get around to sorting that little issue out every morning I wake up to a cold bedroom (not ideal but sometimes I think that’s probably what makes me actually get my bootie out of bed, wack that kettle on and make that cup of coffee to kick-start my day

Have you found your perfect Liquid Velvet Matte?

            The concept of liquid lips, from my memory, first started out in the form of lip glosses – messy things that I never really got on with and therefore was always faithful to the solid lipstick. Having first dabbled in gloss lipsticks and later attempted wearing matte shades unsuccessfully, I was firmly against matte lipsticks. Formulas weren’t that advanced and everything I tried would

New Year, new you – are you falling for that cliché too?

And I’m back! Happy New Year to all and whoever may be reading this. It’s a New Year and a New Me! Haha…I can almost hear you nearly choke on your tea! Such a cliché right! Yes, it’s a new year, but not so dissimilar to the previous year (minus the fact that it’s 2017 not 2016) and well, as much as I would have like to have morphed into

Four Men’s Fragrances you’ll want to wear this Winter.

I love masculine scents…on Mr J, on me (yes, sometimes I wear men’s fragrances), and just in general at this time of year; good, strong nostalgic scents that transport you to the origins of a particular fragrance’s ingredients. Most fragrances come with a story of their own – some that you want to live up to, others that evoke a memory for the creator that they want to share with

Personalisation at its best at Boots!

Boots, our favourite high street drug store, has pulled it out of the bag this year by not only providing their stores and online site as a one-stop-shop for all your beauty needs, but by bringing a new experience of personalisation to life for the first time this Christmas! And I’m definitely not referring to the personalisation of the printed T-shirt kind. From personalising makeup bags to body butter tubs,

Mrs J’s Top 5 Autumn Winter Nail Polish shades

If you love red lipstick and red nails, then this is the perfect time of year to indulge away. Autumn/ Winter always brings out the darker, deeper shades of nail polish. With so many nail trends, colours and brands on the market, it’s hard to not get slightly a bit confused. Or, if you’re like me who forget about those gorgeous shades collected on the way but now deserve to

Five stocking fillers she’ll want to receive this Christmas!

One of my earliest memories of Christmas is not from the day itself but from my junior school days when life was a little bit less materialistic. We spent hours making crepe paper decorations for the Christmas tree and a stocking out of felt to hang over the fire place or at the end of the bed. Traditionally, this sock shaped bag was told to be filled by Father Christmas
