Too Faced London Store Opening Promo (London Only)

Too Faced are about to open their first ever standalone store in London this week, so to celebrate, they've got some lovely promotions running in the first couple of days, most of which focus on a free Better Than Sex Mascara. The store opens this Friday (1st December) and the first 100 people through the door with a full-sized mascara from any brand (presumably this is like the trade-in events that often happen - so I'm guessing an abandoned one[...]

Vibe Blush Lights at Charles Worthington (London Only)

Yesterday my blog turned six years old, which is crazy! I can't believe I've been writing this for six years! In that time I've been lucky enough to have some great experiences, having been invited to some amazing events and to try some great treatments.  I'm fortunate to get regularly invited to try out salons and clinics for all manners of treatment reviews, but none get me quite as excited as an invite back to Charles Worthington on Percy Stre[...]

Omorovicza Midnight Menu at the Four Seasons (London only)

I love really indulgent, pampering treatments, so I could not have been more excited about the Omorovicza Midnight Menu launch, which is a treatment designed to be experienced during the evening, ideally as close to your bedtime as possible, to get you totally relaxed and ready for bed, in every sense.  Today, an Omorovicza pop-up is available at the "Omorovicza Midnight Suite" which is available for the next seven days, before the treatment then[...]

School Holiday Fun: Day Trip to Woburn Safari Park

Since Teddy started nursery at the beginning of last year, I've always tried to make sure we do a few things in the holidays, with varying degrees of success.  This Summer, I really wanted to create a few memories with Teddy, as days out with him are always such a joy, so we've done a few bits and bobs, with my favourite so far being our day trip to Woburn Safari Park. Woburn Safari Park is a massive park in Woburn, Milton Keynes that's ea[...]

Debbie Thomas Illuminate 50% Discount #FriendsDayOut (London Only)

Just looking at that picture above is making me crave a laser treatment.  Is that a little odd? Probably! A topic I get asked a lot about is treatments, specifically facials and I always answer, that if your budget allows, the place to go for a seriously skin transforming facial is the Debbie Thomas Skin Clinic in Chelsea.  It's the place where the A List visit for their pre-event treatments and, having been lucky enough to visit on a couple of[...]

L’Oreal Professional #ColorfulHair

Colourful hair seems to be everywhere at the moment, and I love, love, loooove seeing people who have really committed to it, sporting bright and brilliant hues of pink and aquamarine, it's just so enticing to stare at! My approach to pretty much everything is 'keep it casual', so when I was invited along to try out the new L'Oreal Professional #ColorfulHair, I was keen to find a way to try out the colours whilst fitting it into my casual style.[...]

Omorovicza Mother’s Day Pop-Up at The Four Seasons (London Only)

It's rare that I'm taken back by luxury and I've become horrendously cynical over the past few years, but I really was gobsmacked when I walked into the treatment room for my Omorovicza Mother's Day Facial at the ever-so-fancy Four Seasons in London.  From now until the 2nd April 2017, Omorovicza have taken over one of the treatment rooms on the 10th floor of this stunning hotel, and the Chelsea Physic Garden have designed the area so the whole e[...]

Colour, Cut and Style at The Aveda Institute

One of my absolute favourite perks of what I do is being invited to experience amazing treatments, specially hair cut and colours, as I find the whole event such an indulgent affair; you take several hours out of your day to literally just sit around having someone else do things to your hair whilst you sip coffee and read magazines.  I've always loved hair appointments, but since having Teddy they've become something I plan towards and look forw[...]

Urban Decay UK Store News – London, Nottingham and Liverpool

I live in London, although I rarely shop centrally and tend to do the bulk of my buying at Brent Cross in North London, so up until very recently I could only really get hold of Urban Decay by either shopping online or going to one of the bigger department stores in Central London. I've said in previous posts that 2016 is the year of Urban Decay due to their amazing releases - seriously, palette, after palette, after palette of joy, plus lipsticks[...]

Omorovicza Facial at Liberty London

Every time I pop in to Liberty London I'm reminded of just how fabulous their beauty space is - honestly, it's just a haven of luxury beauty, unusual finds and covetable launches, making it an ideal venue for Omorovicza and all their glorious skincare joy.  They've (fairly) recently started offering facials as part of their position at Liberty London, so I popped along for a Deep Cleansing Facial with Kasia - a facialist with impressive skincare[...]

Dermaquest MangoBrite Peel with LED at EF Medispa

I have a history with EF Medispa as I've had a few facials at their Kensington clinic courtesy of the amazing Biologique Recherche, so when I was invited back to sample some of their other treatments, I couldn't wait to book my appointment.  EF Medispas offer top-of-the-range facial treatments such as lasers, peels and LED, and have a few clinics dotted all over the UK, including four in London - I chose to visit the St Johns Wood clinic as I hav[...]
