Earlier this year (before lockdown!), I was invited by Moorhall Hotel & Spa in Sutton Coldfield to come in for the Thalgo Peeling Marin Treatment. A set of three exfoliating sessions that claims to give you that "new skin effect" visible from the first treatment. Now that is a strong claim to make so of course, I had to check it out! Did the treatments and aftercare live up to their promise? Read on and find out.

Review: African Extracts


The world of skincare is constantly evolving. It is hard to keep up sometimes because there are so many brands and so many products are being released every single week. What I have found in my skincare journey though is that you really get to know your own skin, what works and more importantly what does not work. Now this is different for each individual, let's be clear on that. What does not work for me, might still work for you and vice versa. I have never been one to follow trends to be honest, but one thing I have been intrigued by is the incorporation of Rooibos into skincare products. I have seen this pop up quite a few times recently so when I was contacted by African Extracts, a brand that uses Bio-Active Rooibos extract as their main ingredient, I was eager to learn more. I have been using a range of products from African Extracts for over a month now, so time to share some thoughts!

4 Ways To Look Cute During Lockdown

**Disclaimer: This post contains products that were kindly gifted for the purpose of review and are therefore listed as an unpaid advertisement. All opinions are my own**

Welcome to week...oh whatever, I can't even remember how many weeks it has been since the start of lockdown. But here in the UK we are still spending most of our time at home (which is a good thing in my opinion if we want to get rid of good old Corona..) so I figured it was about time I shared some looks with you and some tips to look cute even though we're not going anywhere. Just a few things from Femme Luxe Finery that have really helped me feel a little more normal on a daily basis. Femme Luxe Finery is a super cute online shop that sells clothingshoes and accessories that are all totally Insta-worthy yet so comfortable. I know, that sounds perfect right?! They have kindly gifted me a few pieces so let me show you what items I've picked and how to style them.

Can One Test Give You A Full Skincare Routine?

Skincare. I think most of us know by now that some sort of skincare routine is essential to keep your skin looking the best it can. But how do you know what to use? There are so many things to choose from and unless you're reasonably clued up on how skincare ingredients work and more importantly what it is your skin needs, it can be quite overwhelming. Sure, you can go visit a beauty therapist who can analyse your skin. But what if there was a simple test you could do from the comfort of your own home that analyses your skin and gives you tailored recommendations on what products to use in just 20 minutes? Hard to believe right? In this post I am reviewing the Hauto Self Skin Test. Is it all that it promises? Read on and find out.

An Evening With Carrie Gross CEO Of Dr Dennis Gross Skincare + New Launch!

**Disclaimer: I was kindly invited to the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare press evening at Selfridges Birmingham with no obligation to post.**


Sometimes you have one of those days where you have a sudden change of plans. I have to admit, I am normally not great with sudden changes, but when you get invited to an evening of Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare with CEO Carrie Gross, you better clear your schedule! On the 30th of January I had the pleasure of learning all about the brand, a brand that is quite new to me as I had not tried their products, so I figured it would be the right thing to do to talk to you guys about Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare and share some information, so here we go.

How The Stylist Restival Helped Me Sleep Better


For as long as I can remember I have been a bad sleeper. My sleep is light and often interrupted by the slightest sound. Having a baby and snoring husband doesn't help either! Not getting enough sleep can have a massive impact on your physical and mental health. So when Stylist Magazine invited me to attend their first ever Restival event, I got excited and knew this one was for me. So on the 19th of January I made my way into London, to the Zedwell Hotel in Piccadilly. In this post I will talk you through my experiences and will share some interesting tips and tricks to help you sleep better. Interested? Well, read on my love!

Why Sugaring At Home Is Better Than Waxing

**Disclaimer: This post contains products that were kindly sent to me for the purpose of review and are therefore listed as an advertisement. All opinions are my own**


Oh hello there! I am finally treating you to the first blog post of 2020. It's about time, isn't it? Now before I fill you in on my 2019 beauty faves (I like to reflect in January), I wanted to share something else with you first. Something I've never really posted about before. I bet you're asking yourself what it could be, but it's probably nowhere near as interesting or exciting as what you are imagining right now! For me, the start of 2020 was marked as 'overcoming your fears', so I decided to take the plunge and sugar my armpits! What a weird thing to say, but let me explain. 

When it comes to hair removal, I am all about waxing my legs. A few years ago, I decided to try and wax my armpits because otherwise you keep shaving every other day and it leaves that dark area that doesn't look nice etc. But boy, bad idea!! Oh my goodness, it was so painful and my skin was so red and almost bruised after that, that I didn't ever dare doing it again. Even the thought of it alone scared me, but then I learned about sugaring and decided to give it a go. But what is sugaring? Read all about it in this post and find out how I got on.
