Murad Method Facial

Murad Method Facial

Murad are launching a new type of facial, the Murad Method. I was invited to try it before it rolls out in salons and spas nationwide next month. I headed to House of Fraser on Oxford Street where they have treatment rooms downstairs, something I wasn’t even was aware that they had. Before my treatment I had a quick youth cam done on the Murad counter, this isn’t part of the facial just something I wanted to try. The youth cam shows any areas of concern on my skin and also what could happen to it as I get older if I wasn’t using products to prevent or treat. My skin actually came out really good, the most concern was hyperpigmentation, which can be from sun damage or even hereditary.

I think sometimes I get so focused on my other skin issues like dehydration or maybe redness I never take sun damage so much into consideration. However recently I have been making sure I use products with SPF and also I do love Murad’s Environmental Shield range which protects against free radicals and also pollution, which is something I also have been made more aware of recently.

Highline, New York

How to walk the Highline New York

For my New York trip I thought I’d just bring you some of my favourite parts and little guides to them, rather than sharing what I did every day, I mean no one needs to know that I didn’t go to a cool deli and actually ended up in Starbucks one day for lunch, those Hibiscus Refresha drinks though right? So just like the Brooklyn Bridge the Highline was another thing I really wanted to see this time around. It was also something I didn’t know much about, how do you get on it, what is there to do, how long does it take? I thought I’d share what I found out so you can make the best of your own Highline walk. Read More »

Brooklyn Bridge, New York

How to walk the Brooklyn Bridge

After visiting Bite Lip Lab on our last day in New York, we had to try to fit in the Brooklyn Bridge. I had wanted to cross the bridge on the Monday as it was a lovely and sunny day, but shopping overtook my plans, what can you do eh? So Tuesday was our last day and so it had to be done. On my last couple of trips to New York I never did the Brooklyn Bridge or the Highline so this trip, both had to happen. Read More »

Bite Lip Lab, New York

Bite Beauty Lip Lab NYC Review

When I was looking for recommendations for things to do in New York I ended up down the rabbit hole on the Internet and saw so many people recommending going to Bite Lip Lab. I hadn’t actually ever heard of Bite Beauty or the ‘Lip Lab’ so I spent the evening researching what was only to be the best find. Bite Beauty have a whole range of cosmetics and is available in Sephora which I saw once I got to New York, but the most different thing is the Lip Lab.

Bite Beauty Lip Lab is situated in Soho in New York and lets you create your own lipstick – let’s take a second for that to sink in. I was super excited about this and so made an appointment straight away. Their appointments book up fast, given this was about a month ahead, so I recommend booking as far in advance as you can. You can do a 1 to 1 appointment, or take a group of girl friends, which could be a fun day out.

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen I visited the Lip Lab on the last day of our trip, the lab was quiet and there was only one other lady having an appointment at the time so it didn’t feel too busy or rushed. Because it was quiet, I asked Danny to sit in with me, so he could give a second opinion on the colours. Read More »
