I recently headed to Paris for an exciting 48-hour city break. You may remember that I went for a whirlwind day trip last February where Zoe and I shot a lot of content in about nine hours; it was a fantastic day but we definitely came away utterly exhausted. This year was slightly different though because I’d be invited along for a complimentary weekend stay by Hotel Eiffel Blomet. The first few months of this year have been incredibly busy so a weekend away to recharge was just what I needed.
As you lovely lot enjoyed my post from my last trip so much I thought I’d put together part two of my Paris Instagram Guide showing you where I stayed and all the new locations I shot in.
If you’re reading this, it’s highly likely that you use some type of beauty product on a daily basis. Whilst these products promise to smooth wrinkles, highlight your cheekbones or give you fuller lips, have you ever looked at the finer details on the packaging? I’m going to hazard a guess and think that a large proportion of you haven’t or if you have there may be a portion of you that’s not 100% sure about what they all mean. It’s easy to ignore them, they’re usually a teeny tiny cluster of cryptic symbols printed at the back or on the bottom of a product.
It’s becoming more important than ever to know what we’re putting on our skin. Understanding these symbols is critical because no one wants to put something on their face that’s months out of date, right?
This blog post aims to demystify some of the key beauty care symbols that you see on the products in your makeup bag, beauty shelf or on your bedside table; it’s my simple, straight forward guide for what to look out for. Have a read and let me know your thoughts.
After working in the fashion industry for most of my career and having a well-documented shopping habit it’s meant that I’ve picked up some practical styling and shopping tips along the way. So, here is a rundown of my styling do’s and don’t’s…
I’m getting married in less six months – OMG! As I expected there is so much to think about when it comes to the BIG day – the dress, the guest list, the food, the venue to name but a few. For me though, there’s something even bigger that I had mulled over for some time and that is whether or not I should change my surname.
Tradition states that the woman should take the man’s surname (rightly or wrongly), but times are changing. Some of my friends have kept their maiden name and at one wedding I attended a few years ago saw the groom change his name to match his bride. So, you see there’s a lot to think about.
Being the skincare junkie that I am, 2018 has been another year of trying out new products, beauty techniques, and trends. But, what has worked and what hasn’t? Well, I thought I’d do the hard work for you and round up the 5 top tips that I’ve learnt this year. If you’re into clean skincare and you’ve also got sensitive skin like me, you’ve come to the right place.
Over the years I’ve made many friendships, I guess I’ve collected my friends along the way. From school, university, traveling and work, I’ve met some incredible people who I’ve shared amazing experiences with. I used to be the kind of person who felt that I had to be friends with everyone, but after university I had a huge clear out; I realised many of the people I associated with were just acquaintances, I’d only see them on nights out and they wouldn’t be somebody I’d confide in – and, that’s ok. We grow, we change and move on with our lives.
This post, as you might have figured out is about how I’ve broken up with a friend. It wasn’t nasty, we’re amicable, but it had to be done. It was the best thing to do, for both of us. So, this post is all about how I realised I needed to end our friendship and how I ultimately broke up with her.
Let’s be honest, the skincare industry is an absolute minefield. Beauty jargon is baffling and with an incredibly oversaturated market it can be difficult to understand what products are right for your skin type. When friends come to me for tips they want to understand what ingredients are actually necessary for their skincare regimes. There’s so much ‘noise’ about what you should be doing. There’s always a new breakthrough ingredient, but does it work and what is it right for you?
I’ve been a skincare enthusiast for as long as I can remember and after three years of working for one of the UK’s leading skincare brands I’ve learned so much about the skin. With a focus on efficacy, I’ve highlighted four key ingredients that can be found in skincare products. Each one is incorporated at some point in my personal routine and I can safely say that they are truly effective.
So, if you feel overwhelmed by skincare and what to use, you’ve come to the right place…
