TRIED & TESTED | FACIAL MISTS

October 26, 2016
20161019-img_7701

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).

THE DIY HAIR MASK I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT

October 17, 2016
20161017-img_7680

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

There´s definitely a real autumnal chill in the air… Although it arrived a lot later than usual this year, and I´ve been lucky enough to have spent a lot of time abroad lapping up the sun – I´m now finally ready to enter the new season. And these are the bits I cannot live without at the moment… Continue Reading

TRIED & TESTED | BODY SCRUBS

August 31, 2016
bodyscrub-6

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…

This post is a promotional feature, created in collaboration with Danone Light & Free. All words, opinions, styling & creative direction are, of course, my own.

I’ve spoken a bit about my daily rituals and routines in the past; but I thought I’d give you a little insight into my new morning routines for the summer months (it’s important to switch things up from season to season), and how I like to inject more energy into my life, whilst making the most of the longer days.

MR. BUSH X MR PORTER

There´s been a whole lot of me since I launched the blog late 2011 – so I thought it was about time I featured my other (and definitely, better) half, for once. You might have already spotted him on my Instagram, or from our Wedding Album blog post, but that´s about it. So when I teamed up with his all-time favourite shopping website, MR PORTER, to share his go-to grooming and wellness routine (with a little help from moi), I also took this opportunity to share a snippet into our love story and a little insight into my very own, Mr. BushContinue Reading

I know I said June was one of my favourite months, but July might just top them all (which might have something to do with it being my birthday month!). It´s also the main time to holiday, and you all know how much I live my life for my vacays! Here is what I´ve been loving so far this month – from summer skincare staples, new swimwear, the designer sandals which are finally (!) mine, the perfect boho blouse, and lots more…

BEST OF THE SUMMER SALE

July 4, 2016

Although the summer sale has been going for a little while now, there are still lots of great buys to be had! The best time to shop the sale is literally on the dot as it happens and gets announced (which I personally find rather stressfull), or wait towards the end, when there are even further reductions and you can really pick up a bargain, and new lines and items are added to the sale… So – I´ve done the groundwork for you guys and collated the direct links and top picks to my favourite go-to brands and retailers – across high street, designer, beauty and interior…

IMPROVING YOUR SKIN FROM WITHIN

May 11, 2016
skin-2

My skin has always been pretty good. From a young age, I´ve been really regimental with cleansing and moisturising, which has definitely helped it, however I was also a heavy sun worshipper in my teens, which has left my skin slightly sun damaged, with patches of pigmentation. When that said, over the past few years, I have been so strict with SPF (I now wear SPF50 every single day – even when the suns not out!). So I´m a firm believer that it´s never too late to start taking care of your skin. But the sooner, the better. Continue Reading

PREPARING YOUR SKIN FOR SPRING

Spring is on it’s way. Although it might not feel like it right now (yes, it was snowing at some stage yesterday!), it is just around the corner. The winter season can really be torturous to our skin, causing dryness, flakiness and cracking. Hence the reason why it´s all the more important to really prepare and heal our skin for the spring season!
