Fragrance Friday: Clean Reserve Blonde Rose

I mentioned recently on here that I haven't done much on fragrance for a while, mostly because nothing has really grabbed me and I've been relying on old favourites instead, but there have been a few perfumes I've tried that have reignited my excitement, one of which is the Clean Reserve Blonde Rose. I honestly love everything about Blonde Rose, the simple, elegant, neutral packaging (which appears to be the same for all Clean Reserve fragrances -[...]

Skincare Loves and New Arrivals – Spring 2017

You may have noticed that I've stopped doing my "Current Skincare Routine" posts, and it's mostly because my routine fluctuates so much that by the time I've snapped the products in play and sat down to write the routine up, it's likely to have changed.  Consequently, I thought it  might be fun to share with you some of the products I'm reaching for most of all at the moment, as well as a look at some of the newest and most exciting bits I've be[...]

Empties #1 – Woo!

I am SO excited to finally be writing this post as I remember when I first started blogging, I made a point of collecting empties so I could write a feature on them, but due to where I used to live before my big move in January, I was limited in where I could store the empty products and I kept losing all of them other than a tub of Clinique's Moisture Surge, which I would look at every so often, then the light in the room would darken and I would[...]

Frederic Malle Iris Hand Cream

I absolutely love finding a great budget product to share with you guys, but I am very aware of the fact that my tastes lean a little more luxury, especially as I get older as I've found I take a lot more pleasure from the simple things in life; a bath laced with expensive oil, a foundation formulated using the most up to date ingredients, and a hand cream that ticks all the boxes, much like the Frederic Malle Irish Hand Cream, or to use the fancy[...]

Lancome Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick #BanTheBoring

It was roughly a year ago when the original Lancome Juicy Shakers launched with a huge surge of excitement due to their novel packaging, fun design, lovely finish and great collection of flattering shades.  Today we see the launch of the newest member of the Juicy Shaker family, the Lancome Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick. Much like her sister, the Lancome Matte Shaker comes in cutesy, travel-friendly bottles with a sponge-applicator and se[...]

Total Bath Joy with ESPA Bath and Body Products

I've had this long-term fantasy about what the perfect bath would be like, once I finally moved somewhere that actually had a bath, after living in a property with a shower for over 10 years.  As soon as I knew I was moving, I started researching what's new in the world of bathing, and putting together a list of dreamy products to try. One of the first collections I got my hands on was these beauties from ESPA, and honestly - and I realise how ri[...]

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[...]

Charlotte Tilbury The Complete Natural, Glowing Look

I remember when Charlotte Tilbury first launched her exciting beauty collection and how crazy bloggers went for all the newness.  Can you believe that in September it'll be four years since it launched?! I never had the opportunity to get carried away with the launch as it was only available in Central London stores (such as Selfridges) and I don't often go Central London shopping.  Having said that, I did get a Selfridges voucher a while ago an[...]

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnets – Review and Swatches

Everyone's been going a bit loopy for the Giorgio Armani Lip Magnets as their launch has been perfectly timed; if it's an easy winter lip you're seeking in a comfortable format and a huge array of colours, you'll definitely need to bag yourself a Lip Magnet or two. Coming in 18 shades covering a decent spectrum of reds, pinks, nudes and berries, the Giorgio Armani Lip Magnets are prettily presented and very easy to wear, even though they[...]

Three Innovative New Blushers to Try

A few weeks ago I did my make-up perfectly and I was so happy with it; my eyes were even and tidy (very rare for me), my base was clean and just the right side of matte and my brows looked almost Instagram-worthy.  Then I had a look at my face as a whole and it just didn't look right; I realised I hadn't applied my blusher - just a few quick sweeps of this innocuous, pink powder brought the whole look together and gave me a hit of health that rea[...]

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[...]
