Melvita Organic Skincare

Melvita organic skincare review

Melvita is an organic beauty brand owned by the L’Occitane Group, to which L’Occitane as a brand you might be more familiar with. I am such a champion of organic skincare at the moment, I dabble in both organic and non organic and can see results from both, but with my sensitive skin, the organic ranges can really work wonders for me.

Never having tried anything from Melvita before, I tested out some of their hero products.

Banana Pina No-Colada Mocktail

Banana Pina No Colada Mocktail

Whether you are doing dry January or just feeling like a bit of a health kick this month, then this Banana Pina No-Colada mocktail is for you. One of the main ingredients I have included is pineapple, which is so good for those of us that get very bloated from time to time and can even work as a beauty treatment for those that suffer a puffy face in the mornings, as it contains bromelain, a natural anti-inflammatory. Mix it with coconut water, orange and banana for this delicious mocktail.

MUA Luxe

MUA Luxe AW15 Review

MUA Makeup Academy has fastly become one of my favourite make-up brands, it’s inexpensive, performs so well and has such a vast array of products and colours, that they just keep creeping back into my make-up bag. Before Christmas I met with MUA and they took me on a visit to the top of The Shard for a Q&A for their blog and share with me their latest collections, meanwhile taking in the 360 degree panorama view.

One of the collections MUA Luxe, is one you might not be so familiar with and on first look you wouldn’t be wrong for thinking it looked slightly higher end. But this is MUA Cosmetics and when I say higher end here, most things are priced under £10. I was so impressed by the Luxe range especially the liquid lips, that I thought I’d share with you my thoughts on the collection.

Fish Soho Barber Review

fish salon soho barbers review london

Fish hairdressing is an institution in Soho, opened in 1987 by founder Paul Burfoot, Paul turned an old sex shop on D’Arblay Street in the middle of Soho into what is now the Fish salon. Where does the name come from? Well when renovating Paul uncovered art deco tiles, which revealed the shop used to be in fact a fishmongers at one point and Fish was born.

From the outside, you can’t help but notice the brand blue tiles and Fish logo. The fish salon has two levels, with the upstairs being slightly smaller than downstairs, the interior is retro and there is a wall of all their products. There are also a number of hairdressing seats, a small waiting area and a slightly more open planned downstairs. The downstairs reminded me of the classic barber shops I used to go to as a kid, mirrors across the walls opposite the barber’s chairs, three sinks to have your hair washed in and iconic pictures above the mirrors of styles gone by.

Rose Quartz & Serenity Interiors

Pantone Rose Quartz Interiors

I have never been that fond of the Pantone Colour Of The Year, but this year they have picked two colours and I really love both of them. They have chosen two colours this year to blend together seamlessly and Pantone’s Colours of the Year 2016 are Rose Quartz – a warm rose tone and Serenity – a tranquil blue.

I thought I would put together some of my favourite interior and lifestyle selections from both colours to fill your home with as Pantone describes, ‘a soothing sense of order and peace.’

Which colour is your favourite?
