Brighton and the bargain Bugaboo

ESCAPING London for the day can be such a treat.  Admittedly, it might not be the cheapest day trip to scarper off to Brighton for a few hours (£27ish return) but going to the seaside for the day hasn’t lost any of its charm since I was a little nipper. Speaking of such, I have more »

Rituals <3

I DON’T think I’ve written a post singing the praises of Rituals before and as they are one of the most underrated brands in my eyes, I thought it was time to holler about their virtues.  Surprisingly not many people know about this brand – despite them having a major presence in airports and train more »

The Review: Benefit’s Roller Lash

MASCARAS are very personal beauty items.  In my mind, what works for you may not work for me. I know what I want from my mascara and it’s thick 60s style spidery lashes, so I like a wand that separates, lengthens and I can do several coats to build up the exact amount of flutter more »

My favourite bath oil for a cold winter’s eve

The beach, a book and a bloomin’ big cocktail (and bad-ass kebabs) … Bodrum, Turkey

THE sure-fire sign that I’ve ‘arrived’ on holiday is relaxing in the sun with a piña colada. Its a little ritual I’ve picked up along the way of my many adventures travelling. So, book by my side, sun blazing down on the beach and a cocktail in hand… Now that’s what I call a HOLIDAY! more »

The Review: Human + Kind

I WAS chatting on FaceTime one night last month, when – in the middle of a conversation – I was surprised to be cheerfully informed that I have a dark patch of skin, clearly visible on my face. After many moments poring over the mirror I decided to use a natural, paraben-free skin lightening cream more »

Important question: What denim will you be investing in this autumn?

A PAIR of perfect jeans is pretty much the Holy Grail of fashion. They aren’t easy to find but when you slip on the ones that will transform your wardrobe (ok your life), you won’t regret all that time seeking them out. We love AG Jeans from fashion site Trilogy. The label was founded in more »
