Clarins Summer Make-Up Collection 2016

Clarins Summer Makeup Collection 2016

As I mentioned earlier this week in my Elizabeth Arden make-up review, I love summer make-up collections! There is something that appeals to me so much more than those of Autumn/Winter, but don’t get me wrong I don’t even hesitate for a berry lip and a smoky eye, but with golden tan colours and shimmery highlights, it just gets me all excited. I recently made two summer lip colours at Bite Beauty Lip Lab in New York which were a coral and bright pink and the colours just make me feel in much more of a good mood.

That aside and said, Clarins Sunkissed summer collection is pretty damn amazing. I haven’t tried much from Clarins before and if so it was probably more skincare so I was really eager to try these out. So I’ll start off with the Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadows. These are £18 each and there is four colours in this limited edition collection. These are Golden Peach, Golden Sand, Silver Taupe and Copper Brown. Each shade is shimmery and has bitter orange tree wax to help create a protective, filmogenic shield against water and humidity and oh boy do they do just that. I always take the word waterproof lightly, I have tried my fair share of waterproof products and mascaras and more often been disappointed. But these are simply amazing. Read More »

Molton Brown Summer Home Fragrance

Molton Brown Home & Linen Mists

Molton Brown recently launched their new home and linen mists, which come in four scents inspired by the Molton Brown signature eau de toilettes and complement the existing collection of candles and aroma reeds.

The home and linen mists are available in Pink Pepperpod, Gingerlily, Ylang-Ylang and also Orange & Bergamot. I decided to choose Orange & Bergamot as I think it is such a lovely fragrance for summer. With zesty tones of mandarin, lemon and orange, it has such an uplifting scent to fill a room. Of course this collection comes in the beautiful yellow Molton Brown boxes, which instantly screams summer to me. Read More »

Elizabeth Arden Sunset Bronze Collection

Elizabeth Arden Sunset Bronze

I absolutely love summer make-up collections, they always include gorgeous bronzers, pretty highlights and brighter colours that always seem to lift my spirits alongside the sunshine. Elizabeth Arden’s collection is no expectation this summer, Sunset Bronze had a beautiful packaging design that instantly got me excited about it and the collection itself creates the perfect summer look inspired by the sunset.

It really evokes the feeling of after the sun goes down with the bronzed look and warmer colours, set off with coloured highlights. This is definitely a look I’d wear in the evenings in summer – as well as during the day. Read More »

Johnny’s Chop Shop

Johnny's Chop Shop

Carnaby Street has welcomed a new barber shop and lifestyle brand Johnny’s Chop Shop. Offering up traditional and contemporary haircuts alongside their own male grooming range.

The shop is definitely a throwback to the traditional barber shops of old, with classic fixtures on the wall, retro cabinets and brilliant red barber chairs. The large cat neon sign behind the counter is also the logo for their Wild Cat clay product. It’s definitely very different to the likes of other barber shops I have visited such as Ruffians and Gentlemens Tonic.

Dani was my barber, she sat me down at her seat, grabbed me a coke and we walked through what I wanted done to my hair. She quickly got the style I was after and got straight into clipping the sides. Dani is very personable and whilst cutting chatted throughout, as she expertly movied the chair around to cut the different contours of my head. She has a great eye for detail, using scissor over comb cutting technique to remove some of the extra weight around my funny shaped head. As well as taking care to ensure the length was short enough around the sides and back before starting on the top.

Summer Lights Party

Summer Lights Party Macmillan npower

As the weather is getting better – no really it is, it’s the perfect time to get together with friends. This month I’ve teamed up with npower, who are encouraging you to throw your very own Summer Lights for Macmillan Cancer Support in celebration of those who light up your life and help raise essential funds for people who have been affected by cancer.

Npower has worked together with Macmillan for over 12 years to help people living with cancer keep warm without the worry. In this time npower has given over £7 million to help over 29,000 families by providing them with support such as emergency energy grants or writing off their debt. And this year npower has pledged a further £4 million over the next three years to help even more people focus on what’s important, getting better.

So with that in mind, I held my own Summer Lights celebration last week for friends and family. Danny and I headed to Danny’s parents as they have the best garden space and I thought it would look lovely to decorate, I mean they have a palm tree in England, enough said. Read More »
