Holiday Hair Heroes

Holiday Hair Tips

When it comes to holiday hair, I think I’m doing good as long as I’ve not gone full on Monica. You know when Monica from Friends goes on the beach trip and her hair has blown up because of the humidity? On our trip to Santorini I took a whole load of hair products in tow with me, probably more than I ever have done on holiday as I was determined to control my locks and I also had to check my luggage in as hand luggage just wasn’t an option for me with all my products I was taking. So I was free to bring all manner of sizes and bottles that I wanted to, hurrah! Read More »

How To Add Colour To Your Home (Even If You Are Renting)

Wall Stickers Flower Tree

Adding colour to your home space is really simple, but sometimes it’s hard to work out where to begin. Especially if like me you live in a rented apartment. There are various ways you can add a pop of colour, very simply and cost effectively too.

Here are 5 simple ways to add colour into your home interior.

Decorate The Walls

This might sound easy and in your home it could very well be, but in rented accommodation it’s not like you can just get your pot of paint out. So an alternative is removable wallpaper. This is also great if you are indecisive or get bored easily, as you can easily peel it off. Etsy have some fantastic offerings or if you aren’t into covering a whole wall, then wall stickers can also be fun, are a good talking point and will add a pop of colour to a plain wall. I love this large tree and flower sticker £79.99 from In-Spaces. Read More »

10 Summer Beauty Launches You Need Now

Beauty Launches 2016

This summer has seen lots of new beauty launches, so I thought I’d do a round-up up of ten of the most recent launches I have been pretty excited about.

So let’s get straight to it!

1. Versace Eros Pour Femme EDT

Versace have brought out the Eau de Toilette version of their popular Eros Pour Femme parfum. The bottle is beautiful with the Versace logo on the front and cap as well as metallic detailing. The fragrance itself is mesmerizing, I absolutely love it. It has a freshness from the fine citrus fruits like Sicilian lemon and mandarin and also crisp fruity notes like raspberry and white currant. Given the fruity notes it doesn’t smell sweet, more sensual as it also has a floral composition of floral petals freesia, magnolia and orange blossom. Whilst the base note is a woody and musk scent. The EDT is available now in 30ml (£42), 50ml (£60) and 100ml (£80) nationwide. Read More »

5 IPL Hair Removal Questions Answered

What is IPL hair removal? 5 questions answered.

I am very lucky that I get to attend a lot of beauty events and launches and therefore I get to find out first hand knowledge about products as well as getting to test them out. IPL hair removal has been around for a little while now, with most people being most familiar probably with the Philips Lumea device. I have tested out my fair share of IPL devices and so I think I just assume that everyone actually knows what it is, however most of my friends don’t actually have a clue what it is and often I get asked just that question, what is it?

So with that in mind, I thought I’d answer 5 questions about IPL hair removal. Whether you are new to IPL or not these should help clear a few things up

1. Is IPL Is The Same As Laser Hair Removal?

The answer to this is no. IPL or known as Intense Pulsed Light emits light of all visible wavelengths (like a photo flash) whereas laser uses one specific wavelength of light, imagine a laser pointer. IPL is more commonly something that can be used at home and has been developed so it is safe to use at home, whereas laser you would find in a salon. IPL is slightly faster than laser as a larger area of skin can be treated in one flash.

IPL works by emitting gentle pulses of light to the hair root to produce heat that is then transferred to the hair follicle. This stimulates the hair follicle to go into a resting phase and as a consequence the hair sheds naturally and regrowth is inhibited. Read More »

A Greek Getaway In Santorini

Santorini Weekend Guide

Santorini is a place I have always wanted to visit and admittedly when I saw it on the Keeping Up With The Kardashians it looked like absolute heaven and I was even more sold that one day I would go there.

Fast forward to now. Danny and I decided we needed a mini break and given the weather here in the UK at the time we were in desperate need of some sunshine. Greece is not actually that far away from London and Santorini is only a 3 and a half hour direct flight, so we figured, why the hell not!  Read More »
