Aquapure Facial Device

Aquafacial by Aquapure at Venn Healthcare

Disclaimer: PR Appointment - I have not been paid for this feature. During the summer holidays (which feel like a distant memory now) I had the pleasure of reviewing two completely different facials - they literally could not be further from each other, yet both were absolutely amazing! The first one I want to tell you about his the Aquafacial by Aquapure, which I had at Venn Healthcare near Harley Street, Central London. If you've ever had a[...]


AquaGold Facial at Adonia Medical Clinic

When was the last time I reviewed a facial treatment? I can't believe how long it's been, but honestly, I think it's because my skin is behaving so well recently (please don't let this be "famous last words...") that I haven't really felt the need to try any new treatments.  Having said that, there are definitely a chosen few that I've read about and really fancied, one of which is the AquaGold Facial which I was kindly invited to try at the Adon[...]


From Blonde to Red…and Back Again! (with Charles Worthington)

Disclaimer: PR Appointments - I have not been paid for this feature.  I started putting together this post with the intention of detailing my hair story over the last couple of years, since I've been visiting Jo at Charles Worthington quite a bit, trying new things here and there, and I thought it would be fun to look back at what we've tried. As I was pulling the posts from Instagram (that really is like a hair diary for me!) I realised tha[...]

A Drastic New Colour Change with Charles Worthington

One of my all-time favourite things to do is visit Jo (Johanne Herald) at Charles Worthington in Percy Street, London, because the whole experience, from start to finish, is always a total joy and an experience I look forward to whenever I'm fortunate enough to be invited back.  Last time I visited Jo was just before Christmas, and I went along with a desire to try something a bit different; I've been going for cool blonde for as long as I can re[...]

Elemis Skin Exchange at John Lewis

Sometimes your skin, mind and well-being are crying out for a luxury, pampering treatment that goes on for hours, takes place in a room of serenity and costs a small fortune, because you're worth it.  Other times, you just need a good basic facial to provide speedy results without all the bells and whistles.  If it's the latter your'e after, the Elemis Skin Exchange at John Lewis could well be worth checking out. Obviously this is still E[...]

Skin Design London Radiance Roller Treatment

What if I told you that I had found the perfect London facial that ticks all the boxes? The Skin Design London Radiance Roller Treatment is results-driven, extremely effective, pampering, fast, sends you home with a device and is unbelievably well priced; expect a very impressive experience that will definitely have you returning! I popped along to John, Bell and Croyden for the Radiance Roller experience, which is a 30 minute treatment sta[...]

Facial Reflexology at Sole to Soul Therapy (London Only)

A few weeks ago, I popped over to the Yi Dao Clinic in West Hampstead to meet with Karen from Sole to Soul Therapy for a relaxing Facial Reflexology session.  The idea of Facial Reflexology is pretty similar to the more typical Foot Reflexology, in that it involves a gentle technique of applying different types of pressure and movement to various areas that correspond to different parts of the body.  Of course the main aim to relieve any issues[...]

Headmasters, Great Portland Street, Review

It's been absolutely ages since I visited a Headmasters salon, so I was excited to be invited into review a style and colour experience, especially as I was going to the Great Portland Street salon, which is one I haven't visited before.  My appointment was with Claire, who is usually based at the Raynes Park salon.  Claire was fabulously helpful and great at interpreting what I wanted with regards to both the colour and style. The Great[...]

Aveda Stress Fix Pedicure

If I had to pick just one treatment to have for the rest of my life, it would be pedicures; I just find them so relaxing and indulgent, plus they're also results driven considering you leave with perfectly soft and prettified feet, so what's not to love? If you're in the market for some serious foot love and can invest an hour of your day to some seriously good stress relief, get yourself booked in for the Aveda Stress Fix Pedicure. As the[...]

Dry Styling at Charles Worthington (Perfect Party Hair)

If you follow me on social media then you'll probably know how much I love the Charles Worthington Salon in Percy Street, London.  I just find they get everything exactly right; the atmosphere is bright and modern but still comfortable and inviting, the service is second to none and the prices (for a Central London salon) are pretty reasonable.  I also love the fact that they place a lot of importance on their refreshments menu (which costs £2.[...]

Hydrafacial at Premier Laser Clinic (London Only)

There are few things I look forward to more than a really good facial, especially since my skin stopped being a big mass of spots, so I can now receive facials knowing that they'll be designed to do more than address my acne.  I've had Hydrafacials before, and I've always loved them because they provide all the things I like in a format that's relaxing and comfortable, yet still very results driven.  Therefore, when I was invited along to Premie[...]
