THE MIRACLE OIL

THE MIRACLE OIL

You know by now if you read my blog on a regular that I strive to slow down the aging process the natural way. So I like to do a lot of research into what actually reduces fine lines and wrinkles. I first discovered Cacay Naturals when it was mentioned in Vogue’s 100 year edition. They described it as the ‘miracle oil’ and I just knew I had to find out what it was all about. Just when we all thought it couldn’t get any better than Argan Oil and Rose Hip Oil a new oil is on the market that seems…

CHRISTMAS WITH JOHN LEWIS

CHRISTMAS WITH JOHN LEWIS

If you’re struggling for gift ideas or partywear inspiration then John Lewis do a great EDIT to inspire you to find the perfect items. I picked up a couple of my wishlist items from the SHINE BRIGHT EDIT which offers a contemporary take on partywear, with a mix of luxury fabrics and staples. THE ‘IT’ SHOE Who knew when we first set eyes on these shoes that they would become the ‘it’ shoe of 2016. You’re probably thinking that may be a sweeping statement but you just have to look at any fashionista’s Instagram page to see them donning the trend. Luckily John…

CONCRETE JUNGLE

CONCRETE JUNGLE

São Paulo was a destination I never dreamed I’d get the chance to go to – not in million years! Somehow I was on a plane flying business class to said destination not quite believing my luck. If anyone mentioned Brazil to me prior to my trip I would have imagined a mass of jungle, naively not really knowing much else about the country. Flying with KLM was an absolute dream and there’s never been a trip yet where I’ve looked forward to flying before. I peered out the window, shocked to see a concrete jungle beneath me, wildly differing from the…

RIO ADVENTURES

RIO ADVENTURES

A trip to Rio De Janeiro, aka a once in a lifetime opportunity and the most memorable trip of my life. Arriving at midnight, glimpsing out the window I could just make out the outline of the Favela district, with glimmers of light peering out from the huts. As we approached Copacabana beach Christ The Redeemer shone like a beacon illuminating the darkness from the mountain tops. The waves were metres high crashing along the coast line, the entire beach lit up by flood lights with people playing volley ball and relaxing at the dead of night. Stepping out the…

UNAPOLOGETIC

UNAPOLOGETIC

– STATEMENT SLEEVES – The statement sleeve came to our attention down the runway for SS16. I had a sneaky suspicion they would be sticking around for a while as they made an even bigger oversized appearance for AW17. There’s something ornate about their appearance, on the cusp of dramatic without being over the top. The perfect solution for those in between dates when you can’t decide to keep it cool or full out fancy. If someone had asked me prior to this purchase whether I would buy an embroidered bag from Marks & Spencer then the answer would definitely…

AN ANTI-AGING GUIDE

AN ANTI-AGING GUIDE

– ANTI-AGEING WITH DR.WU – When I created this blog I really wanted to stay true to what I was interested in. One of the main topics I wanted to cover was anti-ageing. I’m not against botox and the more invasive surgeries but I don’t want to go down that route until my late thirties. I would like to grow old gracefully through using top notch products on the market to help reduce those fine lines and wrinkles in the meantime. I’m 29 in February, so growing closer to the big 30 is constantly on my mind. Not only are…
