4 Steps to Effectively Spring Clean Your Cosmetics

4 Steps to Effectively Spring Clean Your Cosmetics

It’s that time of year again, Spring cleaning time! For some reason February is always the month that gets me thinking out decluttering and deep cleaning; suddenly dust and disorganisation become very apparent to me and I feel this building urge to do something about it. I knew that tidying up was a life changing magical experience long before Marie Kondo’s book on the matter (The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying) became a must read.  One area that often gets over looked during the haste of…

Knowledge is Power | #BCAStrength

I was so happy this month when I was asked to get involved in promoting the BCA Campaign in collaboration with Estée Lauder; Evelyn H. Lauder launched The BCA Campaign in 1992 with the creation of the Pink Ribbon, the universal symbol for breast health, learning that the pink ribbon started with Estée Lauder in the same year I was born made me feel even more personally connect to this wonderful company and it’s biggest philanthropic initiative.

5 Tips for Composing the Perfect Flatlay.

5 Tips for Composing the Perfect Flatlay.

Who doesn’t love a good, well composed flatlay? There is something so satisfying about beautifully laid out products, and one of my favourite parts of the blogging process is coming up with new ideas and creating flatlays. There is something so editorial about the flatlay, and I have to admit I often judge a blogger/instagram account on their ability to pull off an excellent flatlay. I have received quite a few comments of praise for my flatlays both here and on my instagram account,…

Meal Planning Tips for Busy Lifestyles | #AD

What’s in your lunch box today? Is it something healthy? Did you even manage to pack a lunch or do you prefer to grab something in the shop during your lunch hour? When you live a busy life, with very little time to think about what you’re going to have for breakfast in the morning, not alone what you’ll have for lunch later that day, then it can become easy to pick up bad habits, make bad food choices and spend unnecessary amounts of…

Make Hay while the Sun Shines | Staying safe in the Sun this Bank Holiday Weekend.

Only last weekend I was complaining on the phone to my mother about the miserable weather we were having and how the leaves on the trees outside our window were already starting to go brown; then in a surprising turn of events (or weather fronts I suppose) we end up having one of the hottest weeks so far this Summer, with temperatures hitting 32°C+ some days! With the good weather forecast to continue over this August bank holiday weekend, I know Londoners and everyone…

Hydrate Your Face!

Hydrate Your Face!

Water is the skin’s elixir of youth and the most essential anti-ageing ingredient. -REN Skincare Press Release, July 2016 Last month I received a very exciting press release from REN Skincare; just like all of REN’s products the concept behind this new emulsion is founded in science, this time it’s all about the power of water. Water makes up, on average, 55-60% of an adult human body and therefore is a key component in the make up of cells; with that said, the beauty…
