And so the adventure begins with the Lookfantastic January Beauty Box

A new year means a new look! So as makeovers go, the Lookfantastic team have nailed it right on the head! The new slimmer design box has given the subscription beauty box a bit of a welcome refresh. With the beauty box market being quite saturated and very competitive, brands being able to reinvent themselves not only in design but with the products they bring to table each month is

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,

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

Breathe easy this Autumn Winter with Aromatherapy Associates Essence

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that bring us comfort and make us feel better. For me it’s this little bottle from Aromatherapy Associates called Breathe Essence. Hands up if you have already had a cold this Autumn/Winter? – That’s me! and not just one, but two mini colds. I refer to them as mini colds as I think I’ve fought them very well by staying wrapped up and

The Autumnal Make Up Switch Up

There is no element of surprise when it comes to my makeup routine. I tend to play pretty safe when it comes to colours, sticking to (or trying to achieve that healthy glow) something that is as near to my natural colourings at that time. So I would say, for me, I’m pretty boring. Evenings out or on those odd days when I tend to be a bit daring, it’s

#LFPAMPER The October Edition

Hello Autumn! I shouldn’t really feel shocked by the turn in the weather and the arrival of the colder climate…I mean it happens every year! This year though, I have been desperately trying to cling onto the summer months that little bit longer as I’m an October baby, and the change in seasons means that I’m that one year older and not an age that I’m particularly comfortable with. Birthdays
