Wrap up, layer up


Recently I’ve noticed more and more cloaks and capes gracing the fashion spreads of magazines. I really love how they can look glam and smart when worn with sleek black skinny jeans and nice boots.  more “Wrap up, layer up”

Facial cleansers


Us girls need to get our skin care in order this winter. Without fail I always take off my make up when I get in at night after work – it helps to let the skin breathe and keep it clean. No one needs to keep on day-old foundation and sticky mascara when you are just chilling out at home. It’s worthwhile trying a few different brands to find the right cleanser for you – my skin type is combination to dry so I prefer a liquid cleanser as it’s not as abrasive and dehydrating as face wipes. Let’s look at the best products for taking the days make up off.  more “Facial cleansers”

O come all ye faithful chocolate lovers

It’s hard to imagine Christmas without chocolate and this year I’ve been searching for the best in chocolate deals around.

However the price of chocolate has rocketed in recent years and the supermarkets aren’t able to offer competitive prices to their customers anymore. Fear not, your festive season won’t be chocolate free – I’ve found the best choccy deals around.  more “O come all ye faithful chocolate lovers”

Home comforts with candles

I love having friends and family to my flat at Christmas so I’m getting my home ready for them all arriving this year by buying some nice fragrant candles to place around my hallway, kitchen and living room. Candles are very homely and can create warmth while giving off an embracing scent. I love the musty cinnamon and orange festive candles that you can buy from my favourite homeware retailers, The White Company and Jo Malone. You can find festive inspired ranges which add a subtle scent but are big in character. Last night I visited both stores and splurged out on some stunning candles. I can’t wait to use them!  more “Home comforts with candles”
