Beauty Faves: Neals Yard Remedies – Rehydrating Rose Facial Oil

Beauty Faves: Neals Yard Remedies – Rehydrating Rose Facial Oil

A couple of years ago, I never would have thought we’d be putting oil on our faces. This wonder switched me on to how great they are. Texture – Just like massage oil, as soon as you open the bottle, you relax.  Fragrance – Rose! The lovely smell is the sign of an NYR product […]

Beauty Faves: Rituals Himalaya Scrub: Almond Oil and Indian Rose

Beauty Faves: Rituals Himalaya Scrub: Almond Oil and Indian Rose

Purifying Himalayan Salt Scrub I adore Ritual body products. They radiate luxury as soon as you open a pot and wake up your skin to its dewy best. What tops it off for me is the positivity oozing from their names; Laughing Buddha Shower Foam, Happy Mist, Good Luck scrub, Touch of Happiness Body Cream […]

Tried & tested: Marks & Spencer Summer Beauty Box

    Bought for £10 (with purchase of £40). What a fantastic way to try so many quality products! Rodial Dragon’s blood hyaluronic tonic 50ml Works? Feels nice on and I love that it’s a spray. Unclear if it does anything as yet. I’ve refused to take the extra toner step between cleansing and moisturising. As I never […]

Movie – Carol (7/10)

Movie – Carol (7/10)

  This could have actually made in the 1950s. It’s an unlikely story whichever you look at it. A 20 something, dreamy, Audrey look-alike (very deliberately I feel) who meets an older, married high society lady, Carol (Cate Blanchett).

If I Ruled the World…. (at Christmas)

If I Ruled the World…. (at Christmas)

  I love Christmas. It is the most wonderful time of year and it so because it’s unique. Uniquely in December. I am at the front of the queue to make yuletide stretch as much as possible but no, Wizard, I don’t wish it was Christmas every day (still a great track though). To keep […]

If I ruled the world…………….

If I ruled the world…………….

I’d solve the world’s problems with cake and put persistent social media moaners in a ‘sin bin’. People are positive A tricky one to enforce although it means the world of difference in people’s happiness. Government to set the example by changing their language, after all, even the Queen tends to look on the bright side. […]
