Following the manic and very exhausting Christmas period, January can feel very dull, depressive and often difficult for many people. They call it the January Blues, and currently, I feel like I am suffering myself. At times like this, like many people, I often reach for the TV remote, to snuggle on the sofa, relax and recoup. One way that I relax within my home is by using fabulous Scented Candles and home fragrance. 

I adore candles and home fragrance products, and I am relying on them for comfort, ambience and to inject a little happiness into my...

I don't know why they call men's fashion week a week, as it's definitely not a week long, more of a long weekend really, but alas, another one has arrived and left us in a blink of an eye. I am calling this season of London Fashion Week Men's the season of Uooyaa, for no other reason than because its all I wore throughout the shows, plus a few added accessories of course! 

Uooyaa is a premium Chinese streetwear brand, which was founded by Jinxia Yin, who launched the brand after he left his post as vice president of the once unrivalled Chinese fashio...

I will hold my hands up and admit that I am a huge shoe addict, and everybody around me knows it. I can't help myself, there's just something about an elegant heel that gives me butterflies in my stomach and I just have to have them, and currently, I have about 160 pairs and growing. The same thing happened when I was reading Vogue and I spotted the new fragrance by Carolina Herrera for the first time, I just knew I had to have it!

The Good Girl Perfume is a powerful yet sensual scent inspired by designer Carolina Herrera’s vision of the modern woman...

It's now officially that time of year, where we all desperately searching the highstreets, and online stores, for the perfect gift. I often spend some time looking around for sweet little gifts that the recipient will love before I actually start buying things, and gift guides are the perfect place to look and gain inspiration, so I have decided to jump on the bandwagon as they say, and create a festive list of my favourite products. All are perfect for gifting, so grab a cup of tea, curl up on the sofa, and lets done some festive shopping together.

"No elegance is possible without perfume. It is the unseen, unforgettable, ultimate accessory..."

- Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel 

In the words of Gabrielle Chanel herself, fragrance is the ultimate accessory, and I must admit, I totally agree! I have been a fan of fine perfume since being a teenager, and because of this I buy a lot for myself as a treat, and as the festive season approaches, I will be buying a lot for gifting. As the month rolls on and we get ever closer to December, its probably a good time to think about Christmas gifting, either for fri...

Contouring has been big in the beauty world for many years now, and it’s something I have played with and practiced on my own face for a long time. Now with many people asking me about my cheekbones over the last few months I thought I would show you what I do on my own face, and give you some hints and tips along the way. Contouring isn't something we HAVE to do with our make-up, but the truth is that most of us are hooked and do it every day! Why? Because contouring visually restructures your entire face making you look and feel better. It makes y...

This season of London fashion week was one of the busiest and most stressful seasons that I’ve ever attended. I must admit, despite making lots of effort to attended as much as possible, I missed a high number of shows and was left feeling exhausted as I ran across London to all the various locations. However, enough about my time keeping skills and stress levels, this post is all about what I wore. 

Once again, during this Septembers fashion week I was lucky enough to loan some amazing pieces from Fashion Crossover London. I have dealt with the Fash...

If you are a follower of my blog or social media pages then you will probably already be aware that I am a huge fragrance fan, and often shop at Notino.co.uk to find special fragrances to add to my collection. On my most recent browse of the Notino website I snapped up the Chanel No 5 L'eau fragrance, a lighter, fresher variation of the 1921 legend, Chanel No 5 Parfum.

Chanel No 5 L'Eau is the new fragrance,or variation of No 5, that aims to capture the more younger, millennial audience (just like myself!). The scent was develop...

I've been a little naughty this month, with London Fashion Week quickly approaching I decided to do a little Notino shop to stock up on new season make-up, fragrance and skincare. However I am going to admit straight away, that I only went on the website for one thing and I quickly started adding things to my basket, but who can blame me when the deals are so good right?! 

For those of you that don’t know, Notino are an online beauty store that stock amazing luxury brands, as well as industry and high-street favourites. They have a huge range of prod...

Whilst streaming the ethereal Haute Couture shows in Paris, filtering through the trends for work and gazing in ore at the creations from some of the worlds best designers I noticed something a little unusual. Mascara was a "thing", namely coloured mascara and Avant Garde designed lashes. A trend that has very quickly filtered through to the highstreets from brands such as Dior, Yves Saint Laurent and Chanel cosmetics. Its a trend I have wanted to try as soon as I saw it hit the runway, the thought of powerful pink mascaras, gold glitters and the po...
