MY 4 BEAUTY HEROES FOR PREGNANCY & BEYOND

July 6, 2017
elemis (3 of 24)

As some of you might or might not know, I am the Brand Ambassador for ELEMIS this year, one of my all-time favourite skincare brands. I would like to say it was a very natural and organic fit – seeing as I have been using their products and spa services for so many years! Their skincare just works, especially for my skin type. I have always been a big fan of more natural skincare brands, which fuses scientific methods to create active formulations to genuinely transform your complexion. As I have been using the brand for so many years, I naturally have quite a lot of personal favourites – but in the recent months during my pregnancy, there have been four products in particular, which has been true skincare saviours (during a time when I have needed it more than ever)…

Now that many of you are most likely in the loop in regards to my very exciting pregnancy news a few weeks ago – you might start to notice some small changes in my monthly favourites; from what beauty products I need (dehydrated and pigmented skin, anyone!?), and some changes in the fashion and lifestyle faves… This month is quite predominant with shoes, as it´s been the easiest thing I can still buy and which I know will (hopefully) continue to fit for the rest of the season, some must-have beauty essentials to tackle my ´new` skin, the perfect red dress for my upcoming holiday to Ibiza, and some more sparkly delights…

HOW TO (REALLY) SWITCH OFF FROM WORK TO RELAX MODE

May 3, 2017
IMG_6151

I mean, we all know the struggle, let´s face it. With social media constantly switched on, where we spend hours of mindless scrolling getting our daily Instagram fix on our evening commute from work, checking in on Facebook right before we go to bed, stalking all our favourite celebs on Snapchat, or receiving endless Twitter notifications pop-ups (note to self: turn these alerts OFF!). And if it´s not social media, it´s TV. Which again, can act as the biggest escapism after a long day working in the office, where you most likely don´t have a lot of energy to converse or use much brainpower… In comes the trashy reality shows, which sure enough, numbs our brains into jelly. Sounds harsh, but I am pretty sure I am hitting some core home truths here… Don´t worry – WE ALL DO IT. Or at least, sometimes/most of the time. Hopefully, many of us still have that little voice at the back, reminding us to REALLY switch off by banning all social media and TV during some parts of your evening, and spending some much needed quality ´me time`. Read on for how I have personally struggled as a full-time blogger and digital influencer to navigate this balance, and some of my top tips and daily reminders to keep me motivated. Continue Reading

GET YOUR FACE SPRING READY IN 3 SIMPLE STEPS

April 26, 2017
beauty (3 of 9)

You know how the most of do an annual spring cleaning in our house? Well it´s just as important to do it with your skin as well! With winter winding down, and living through months of constant indoor heating, on top of bitter cold weather – our skin is left feeling parched, dehydrated and aged. With spring comes a new lease of life, with sunshine, humidity, and more time spent outdoors; it´s a time for rejuvenation, growth and a time to pamper. But unlike a regular spring clean with an instant overhaul and clear out; when it comes to your face and complexion, it´s all about the preparation in advance and slowly switching your skincare routine, to not create any unnecessary stresses or aggravators. So please click through, for my top 3 steps towards a healthy and glowing complexion, along with some skincare favourites for spring.

I have spoken a bit about natural skincare before on the blog, and why I love it so much – but I haven´t really delved into what specific products and brands I love, and why I continue to keep natural and mainly organic beauty brands as part of my daily skincare routine, balanced out with more active (non-natural and organic) ingredients…  Continue Reading

This post has been long awaited (and requested).

FRAGRANCE COMBINING WITH JO MALONE LONDON

March 29, 2017
jomalone (8 of 11)

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of working with one of my favourite British fragrance brands, Jo Malone London. Being a Londoner for nearly 8 years now, I find myself fiercely loyal to local, heritage brands – and Jo Malone is no exception. It epitomises all things British – class, tradition, consistency (a very British trait), yet with constant innovation… One of their latest campaign launches, is the power of Fragrance Combining. I mean, it totally makes sense; why wouldn’t you want to mix two of your favourite scents together? The best of both worlds.  Continue Reading

MY MAKE-UP ROUTINE AND THE PRODUCTS I’M LOVING RIGHT NOW

March 24, 2017
makeup (11 of 12)

I´m pretty minimal when it comes to my make-up look. It´s a combination of my love for the ´less is more` look, laziness/lack of time, and wanting to maintain really clear skin (without clogging it up with layers of make-up). Gone are the days of caking on the bronzer and mascara, but luckily I´ve never really worn much foundation. After reaching 30, I have never been more skin confident, and I know this has a lot to do with me finally knowing what make-up look really suits me, and what products work for my complexion. I also have a pretty quick make-up routine – which I´ve perfected, meaning it takes me less than 5 minutes to do. The products below are all part of my everyday go-to look, and come evening, I just add some lippy or eyeshadow – but the basics always stay the same.

Ok, I know I keep saying it every time, but seriously – where is this year going?! How is it already end of March? 2017 is just flying away… But I for one am more than ready for Spring. It´s my favourite season by far. Gone are the days of wanting it too hot and balmy (as in, I wouldn’t complain with a few of those days right about now) – but Spring has that refreshing air of newness. We start ditching the layers, bare a bit more skin, and have that constant air of curiosity for the new season…

4 TRIED & TESTED FACIALS IN LONDON

If there is one thing I want to spend my money on, it´s my skin. I´d sacrifice the latest fashion purchase in favour of an incredible facial at one of my favourite spots, any day. I am pretty religious with having monthly facials; having that consistency and regular up keep has really transformed my complexion. Sure, squeeze in a few weekly face masks at home on top of this; but you will see the real difference when you´re in the hands of a trusted and reputable skin esthetician…

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).

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…

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.
