Redken Brews Men’s Hair & Grooming Range Review

Redken Brews Review

Redken Brews is the new one stop shop for men’s grooming. Coming off the back of the grooming boom and the increased popularity in men’s barbering Redken have created a dedicated line of products inspired by New York and classic barber shops.

It’s a huge range with three different categories; cleansers, styling and skincare. As you would expect from Redken the styling range is packed full of products, including two different pomades and a work hard styling paste, which is similar to my favourite Redken product, the 12 texture rough paste.

Here are my top picks from the Redken Brews Range. Read More »

‘Theatre Not Afternoon Tea’ At The OXO Tower

OXO Tower Theatre Not Afternoon Tea - The LDN Diaries London Lifestyle Blog

If you are a regular follower of the blog you will know I love my afternoon tea and this month Harvey Nichols have launched Theatre Not Afternoon Tea, a new type of themed afternoon tea at the OXO Tower. The afternoon tea is an array of sweet treats and cocktails carefully paired with a theatrical theme, taking inspiration from some of London’s top West End productions.

I popped down or is that up to try out the new afternoon tea. The OXO Tower restaurant, bar and brasserie is located on the eighth floor of the OXO Tower on the Southbank, which gives you an ample view across the river. It’s lovely and light inside and has a great vibe, we went on a Sunday afternoon and there was a female singer performing. Theatre Not Afternoon Tea as it suggests is not your usual afternoon tea. There are no sandwiches and no savoury options, this is all about the sweetness and the alcohol, so if either of those are for you then you will love it.  Read More »

Here are my personal favourite steak restaurants in London that I always recommend. Read More »
