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…

AN INTERVIEW WITH ANDREW COLLINGE

AN INTERVIEW WITH ANDREW COLLINGE

– CO BY ANDREW COLLINGE – For those of you who don’t know – Andrew Collinge is one of the leading hair dressing salons here in the UK. The new range was formed from a collaboration between clients and stylists, drawing from years of experience. After visiting the salons for a number of years I was eager to try out their new products and they didn’t fail to impress me. I got the chance to talk to Andrew Collinge and his wife Liz about their new range of products (CO by Andrew Collinge) and of course I wanted to quiz them on…

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…

DIAMOND CLEAN ROSE GOLD EDITION

DIAMOND CLEAN ROSE GOLD EDITION

– THE DIAMOND CLEAN – I had braces for six years, YES six years, all the way through high school. So my teeth and looking after them is something that’s very important to me.

In the meantime working with the right toothbrush really helps care for them properly. Let me introduce you to the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Rose Gold Edition, aka the most instagrammable toothbrush on the market. Not only is it visually stunning…

MY 30 DAY DETOX

MY 30 DAY DETOX

When it comes to lifestyle choices I have to be very clever. I don’t have much spare time, I have a full time job and a blog that seems to consume every spare hour the more it grows. So to stay in shape I have to choose the most simple and effective routes. A lot of people make the mistake that the gym will get them the perfect body, but by learning the hard way I realised it’s all about the 80:20 rule. My body is down to 80% of what I consume and 20% exercise, so if I don’t…

A BRIGHTER SMILE

A BRIGHTER SMILE

Teeth have been so important to me since I was a teen. I was that kid at school that wore braces for my entire high school life. Six years of train tracks led me to take great pride in teeth and with that came whitening with the right products. With many whitening products you have to be careful as they rip off your enamel, damage your gums or can even leave your teeth an uneven tone. I like a softer approach in the form of toothpaste and mouthwash as having strong teeth is very important to me. I’ve been using…

THE KAT VON D EFFECT

THE KAT VON D EFFECT

You can imagine just how excited I was when this arrived through my door. Kat Von D resembles that inner voice in my head, the naughty one that you know will lead you astray in the best possible way! Her makeup collection makes you want to unleash your inner vamp, reaching for that tattoo liner and studded lippy to create your alter ego. We’ve watched from a far as her range hit US stores but now for the first time it’s here in the UK – exclusive to Debenhams.com and the department store’s flagship store on Oxford Street, London. SO LET’S GET…

STYLING HAIR EXTENSION

STYLING HAIR EXTENSION

I’m the kind of girl that in my down town rocks a messy bun. If it’s a quick outing a Kate Moss style naturally dried unkempt hair-do is my go-to. However when I’m looking for that extra wow factor for an evening out or an event I always turn to my trusted hair extensions to create volume. With naturally thin hair it’s impossible to create anything like this on my own! I ordered my current extensions from a brand called Lulla Bellz. I’m usually so skeptical about ordering hair online as colour matching is so difficult, however they colour matched my hair…

THE ESTÉE EDIT

THE ESTÉE EDIT

– THE MAKEUP CASE – Five trains, two hotels and one very sticky tube ride – that’s been my week so far. You may think it’s because of fashion week but this is my weekly routine and it kills me. Packing and unpacking is monotonous and you would think I would have got used to it by now but somehow I always forget something! THANKS TO ESTÉE LAUDER THOUGH, I HAVE MY TRAVEL BEAUTY ESSENTIALS NAILED. Hot pink is all the rage at the moment and I would like to personally thank Chanel for making it fashionable once again! Pink…

THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE

THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE

Each month there are a few key products in my beauty collection that I like to rave over. I take beauty very seriously and have spent years trying and testing products before beauty blogging even began. I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin so maybe that’s why trial and error is so important when experimenting with new products or brands. First is the Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder which has  a unique formula ensuring a fool-proof natural make-up result every time. I am not a fan of contour kits as I think in broad daylight they can make your skin look dirty, so instead I…
