It seems to be cold and grey and gross in the UK for so long that when the spring time rolls around and we actually get some sunshine we all freak out and think it’s summer (put those shorts away guys, it’s not warm!). But, it’s still kinda chilly but there are definitely some changes happening with the weather. My skin and hair always go a bit weird when the weather changes, does yours?
Last weekend we headed down to Hoar Cross Hall for a facial and a day of chilling out. We’re always busy and it was really exciting to be able to chill for most of the day. I’m not a massive ‘spa day’ person but I really enjoyed this trip. The whole walking around in a robe with strangers is kind of weird to me but you just have to go with it I think!
Skincare and beauty are big loves of mine. I’ve always loved makeup and trying new products so innovative releases are super exciting to me. I’ve got 5 new releases to chat to you about today, all of which I’ve been trialling for about 2 weeks to give a good idea of what I think. Let’s get straight down to it!
Pink is everywhere at the moment! From fashion buys to pastel hair, pink is always a spring trend and this year it seems bigger than ever. I headed down to Intu Victoria Centre with the gorgeous Robyn for a catch up, a glass of prosecco and a look at some lovely spring trends (including a lot of pink!)
That’s pretty much my life motto. Alongside all the other serious shit we have to put up with in life, why can’t we all just have nice eyebrows and be happy? Eyebrows are so important for the shape of your face, in my opinion they really finish things off and make you look more polished.
I’ve finally finished my course of Invisalign! After 58 weeks of changing aligners, brushing my teeth up to 6 times a day, tears, complaining and sulking, it’s over. It’s taken me just over a year to finish and I’m waiting for my retainers to arrive. So, I thought I’d do a little run down of some things that have happened, basically my Invisalign story. If anyone has any specific questions then I’d love to be able to help, so either leave me a comment or tweet me!
Teeth. They give us endless problems. I know this all too well as I’m right at the end of my Invisalign treatments which I’ll be writing about super soon! From pain to paranoia, they can be a real source of stress. A recent BUPA study revealed that bad teeth stop one in four people smiling in photos and I’m definitely part of this statistic. Do we care for the wrong reasons? Of course, you should care about your teeth, I do so much more since having my braces, I probably care a lot more now than I ever did. Proper dental hygiene is essential for keeping them healthy.
Adding technology into your skincare routine has definitely become seriously popular over the past few years. I mean, I saw a Face Gym when I was walking down the Kings Road in Chelsea when we last went to London. WTF is a Face Gym? Answers on a postcard plz!
What really are the benefits of all these gadgets and gizmos when it comes to skincare? Today I’m talking cleansing with my favourite new toy, the Magnitone Cleansing Brush. I’m comparing it throughout this post to the Foreo Luna because I’ve previously also owned this device.
Hey Christmas vouchers, presents to exchange and mon-aaay! It’s Boxing Day, it’s time to spend that dollar and get some stuff you actually want. Let’s talk beauty bargains.

It’s not often that I write favourites posts but every few months I find a few things that I find myself really liking and it’s always good to mix up the content on here! Here are 6 (mostly skincare and beauty but with a fashion fave) products that have been giving me life in December!
