My Top Five Current Summer Scents

Fragrances or scents, for me, are paired with memories – some happy, some sad. But mostly, they mark significant milestones in my life.  Which is why if you asked me to pick my all time favourite scent, I simply wouldn’t be able to. Not because I don’t want to relive those memories, more so that my preferences or tastes have changed. What would have been my favourite scent as a teenager is

Sleep – How to Nail That Bedtime Routine

Sleep – the universal activity that all humans need to survive; an essential activity to rest and recoup the body and mind. With the average adult recommended to get between 7 to 8 hours of restful sleep per night, for a poor sleeper like me, this requires a lot of commitment in a carefully timed pre-bedtime routine! If this scenario sounds familiar to you, or you’re also a poor sleeper/insomniac,

Things to keep you occupied this May!

This is not the best of post, just more of things that I have been enjoying over the past month that are going to see me well into May, being that it is nowhere near summer weather here in the UK ( I mean we had hail stones on May Day!). So with sandals, sunshine, picnics and BBQs in the near distant future, here are my recommendations for the imminent

Beauty Pie, for those of you not in the know, is the new subscription service/monthly beauty box that brings you luxury beauty products at transparent factory costs. There are no middle men and no mark ups which means that the products do not come in any fancy sort of packaging but the quality of high end is all there! Sounds all a bit too good to be true?

The post lunchtime gym session moisturising fix!

When you work in the industry that I work in, you’ll grasp that there is A LOT of chat over fitness, wellness, fashion – mainly our shopping addictions – beauty, food, and dry skin (or ‘skin flake’ as we often refer to it). It is not uncommon to see a stampede of Sweaty Beatty leggings power walking out of the office at 12pm sharp ready to burn some serious calories

Oh K! Fruit Enriched Peeling Foot Mask review.

Everywhere you look, someone is raving about Korean beauty! And now I’m about to turn into one of those people. With cute packaging and eye-catching colours, it’s hard not to pick something up although after looking at the price tag of a few items, I quickly put them back down as quickly as I picked them up. Oliver Bonas is one of my favourite high street shops and on one

Go on….Treat yourself!

Today’s post is not about a Day, birthdays, pay day or any other sort of “day”. It’s simply about treating yourself! We often feel that there needs to be a reason when it comes to doing something nice for yourself, or a secret currency exchange that occurs where you tell yourself if you do X then you can have X. Well today, I wanted to throw that notion out of

With London Fashion Week kicking off yesterday for yet another season, all eyes are firmly focused on the runway where fashion and beauty trends are set for seasons to come. My focus today is on the models that walk the runway and how they keep their body and skin looking healthy and fresh. In a recent interview between Rosie Huntington Whitely and Sali Hughes (I’ll link the video below), it
