MY LONDON SPA SECRET

September 11, 2017
IMG_1764

Well, perhaps no longer my ‘secret’, and I’m sure a few of you might have already discovered this gem of an escape already, hidden in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Mayfair – the House of ELEMIS. You also might have acknowledged my true love for this brand (hence why they asked me to be one of their Brand Ambassadors this year!) – so there is so surprise perhaps that I am a big fan of their London spa too, which has been one of my number one go-to pampering destinations during my pregnancy. And especially now, with only weeks to go – I am more than ever in need of some downtime/me-time. Continue Reading

MONTHLY FAVOURITES #39

August 29, 2017

Anyone else still reluctantly transitioning into Autumn? I mean, I still have my eye firmly on the new arrivals (and have already treated myself to some new season pieces as seen below) – but I am still technically in summer mode, in terms of my day-to-day wardrobe, alongside clinging onto the last weeks of warm, sunny weather. So for now, and for this month’s favourites – I give you a good mix of a bit of both; such as must-have summer statement sandals, alongside my new furry slippers…

AUGUST MOOD

August 11, 2017

I have mixed feelings towards August… For one, it’s the first month which is leading towards Autumn, which on the one hand means a new season, new beginnings… But then on the other hand, it also means summer is soon over. For once, the latter doesn’t bother me so much, as I am still finding myself wishing the time away for our baby to arrive and to start so many new beginnings. Yet, I am still holding on to that summer feeling, and already finding myself dreaming about my summer wardrobe next year (when my body will be very different then what it is now). So I have compiled a little mood board for you guys, to show you all the things which is inspiring me right now, from fashion, hair, interior, food and general mood.  Continue Reading

MY WEEKEND GET-AWAY BEAUTY ESSENTIALS

August 9, 2017
beauty (8 of 10)

As I’m not doing so much travelling abroad at the moment (for obvious reasons), I am making the most out of our beautiful country and having lots of mini staycation escapes instead! We just came back from Oxfordshire on Monday (more on that trip next week), and have otherwise been to Dorset, Hampshire, Hastings, Dorset and Buckinghamshire. With all of this, I feel like I’ve certainly managed to master the act of keeping it relatively easy and light when it comes to packing – especially when it comes to my toiletries (one which I am known to normally go way overboard with in terms of always packing way too much)… So I thought I would share some of my current go-to favourites with you guys – with all my core get-away beauty essentials…

Where is this summer going?! Although it’s been a slower summer then usual for us in terms of travelling now that I’m pregnant, I still feel like it’s flying by. Or maybe that’s just because I’m kind of wishing the days and weeks by, as I just want our baby boy to arrive already! Either way, it’s been a lovely summer, and I for one am loving that it’s slightly cooled down a bit (although the rain can hurry up and leave!). Here are some of my this month’s favourite bits – and as I am nearing my due date, I have included some pregnancy essentials in there too!

THE LUXURY PREGNANCY SKINCARE BRAND WORTH BUYING INTO

July 26, 2017
IMG_7832

There’s definitely no coincidence that I have upped my beauty skincare game since becoming pregnant. I thought I was pretty savvy before; but in the last few months, I have researched, trialled, tested and read about the latest innovations, launches, must-have and under-the-radar products, like there’s no tomorrow… And as much as I love and adore so many cult beauty classics and rely on several reputable and tested brands for results; I love nothing more than coming across those under-the-radar beauty gems, which turn out to be skincare game-changers – especially now that I’m moving into my seventh month of pregnancy (when the need for luxury and beauty combined, is even more important than ever)… Continue Reading

MY 4 BEAUTY HEROES FOR PREGNANCY & BEYOND

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.

FRAGRANCE COMBINING WITH JO MALONE LONDON

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.
