How is it nearly March already? 2017 is going far too quick for my liking (although I´m loving the sudden burst of the warmer, spring weather). Needless to say, I am still firmly rooted within my darker and more tonal colour palette, but I am getting pretty excited for all the fresh colours that are hitting the stores! But for now, here are the classic (and tonal) pieces that I am loving, as well my latest beauty must-have´s, and other favourite trinkets…

February 8, 2017
IMG_7537

Hands up if your skin has been all over the place recently, dehydrated and lacklustre? I am pretty sure you’re not alone on this. The months leading up to Christmas was indulgent and hectic, and January and February has seen interchangeable weather conditions, with minus degrees, rain, harsh winds and drying indoor heating… In other words, no wonder our skin is crying for some help. Its thirsty! You might also find you´re suffering from dehydrated and tired skin, due to lack of sleep, your diet, or internal hormonal imbalances (or just a bit of everything) – whatever it is, the good news is you can reverse it and get it back to where it was. Fast track it today with these 5 simple beauty tips, to regain that subtle, smooth skin, and happy body… Continue Reading

MY WINTER SKIN GLOW GUIDE: GO-TO PRODUCTS & STEP-BY-STEP ROUTINE

January 27, 2017
winterbeauty (9 of 10)

Quite controversially, I actually prefer my skin during the winter. Of course, I´m sure I look a lot cuter with a sun kissed glow and complementing tresses… But with the summer months, comes dark spots and pigmentation, and a more uneven skin tone (or is this just me?!). When it comes to my skin´s actual texture, overall feel and look, it´s always so much smoother and clearer during the winter months. That´s not to say that I do nothing to it; quite the contrary – winter is the time where I really ramp up the skincare ingredients with lots of Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Retinol, scrubs, serums, SPF (still SO important) and ultra rich and hydrating moisturisers and masks.

I mean, where has this month gone? In my last post, I was talking about how I have personally been easing into 2017 more gently and with ease. And I am planning on continuing to do so in the coming months! Gone are the days of constant stress an worrying; I am genuinely taking it so much slower than ever (and my body and mind is loving it). …and here are some other bits I have been loving this past month!

Needless to say, there has been a slight overload in consumption this month; with presents galore, and grabbing some good bargains during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales + some early discount have already started (can you believe that Net-a-Porter has 50% on?! Go go go). Anyways, back to the point of this post… My favourites throughout the month! Continue Reading

xmas-guide-1-of-51

It’s the 3rd December, and the countdown has officially begun until Christmas (aka the BEST time of the year). I am super festive at the moment, and totally lapping up the freezing cold weather, morning frost, festive food and christmas shopping. I tend to do a lot of my Christmas shopping online (the one thing I don’t love about this time of year, is the hectic shops!), and have already been rounding up my fair of share of presents for family and friends over the net. If you haven’t already started buying your pressies yet, or you’re still in need of some more gift ideas for your loved ones – I’ve collated all my go-to buys; from the ultimate gift sets, favourite perfumes and scented candles, jewellery, quirky interior additions, and other must-have fashion and beauty buys – for this year’s annual Christmas 2016 Gift Guide.

You might already know what a facial mist is (or get the jist from the name!), or have no idea at all! Although facial mists, face sprays, hydration mists, beauty toners – whatever you want to call it – have been around for a while, they’re still not necessarily a core staple in everyday´s skincare routine. But they should be – I know I am obsessed (which is pretty obvious from the amount I´ve got!). Here are some old-time favourites, and new ones that I am loving at the moment (and why they can work wonders to your skin).

My hair and I go a long way back. We´ve been through the lot. Bleached, purple, red, orange, ombré, short, long… Finally, now that I´ve come to my senses – I´m back to my chocolate brown roots (with a touch of sun kissed from all my recent escapades). But my hair has never really recovered from all the wear and tear… Until, I dissevered this hair mask.  Continue Reading

TRIED & TESTED: BODY SCRUBS

Body scrubbing has been part of my weekly (and sometimes daily) skincare ritual for years now. Especially leading up to the bikini season and throughout the whole summer – when you want that body looking extra smooth and soft. It´s also the perfect routine to kickstart post holiday season, when you want to shed any excess dead skin cells from all that travelling, tanning and swimming – to help renew a glowy and fresh complexion for the new season ahead…
