Ease the strain with a massage deal

Running the London Marathon this Sunday? No, me neither. But, I do run (jog) from time to time, and I did once complete a 10 mile race. Because of that I know that massage and relaxation definitely helps with the pain of running! Until our house renovation is done this summer, I don't even have a bath I can relax in after pounding the pavements. So I am storing up my bottle of Olverum Bath Oil (£29 125ml, £53 250ml, Harvey Nichols) for then. … [Read more...]

Plump your lips for International Kissing Day

It's International Kissing Day this Friday. Let's dwell on that, rather than the fact it is Friday the 1th, yes? So, time to get those lips ready for some smooching. (Or good enough to smooch, even if you don't want any kissing going on this weekend!) Lip fillers. They're massively popular, the girls on TOWIE love them, and they aren't as expensive as you might think - particularly when bought through one of 5pm's fantastic deals. The … [Read more...]

Tanning Deals

Snow. Right, that's enough of that, I think. What is going on with this neverending winter?! So, let's NOT talk snow, and talk tanning instead. Okay, you might not be showing off your limbs, still wrapped up in winter clothes, but surely having a bit of a tan will make you feel better at least. I was browsing Instagram  recently and noticed St Tropez's new PURITY Bronzing Water Mousse (£31, Boots). Looks great, but I'm no good when it comes … [Read more...]

Spring Body Beauty

The clocks spring forward this weekend, and, fingers crossed, as the days get longer, we get better weather. And that means, maybe, we shed our winter wardrobe, and actually show a bit of flesh! So, it's probably a great time to have a bit of a spring overhaul on that body you've been hiding under layers and layers of clothing for months on end. I'm not about to tell you to go on some crash diet or get to the gym, okay? Your body is your body, … [Read more...]

Pink Hair Don’t Care

Dermaplaning Deals

Dermaplaning has been a beauty buzzword for a while now, and I have to admit I've not yet tried it. Perhaps I've never felt the desire to remove the peachy fuzz from my face - or the vellus hair to give it its actual name - or maybe I am just a little scared... It's not a new practice at all though, Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe 'shaved' their faces, as did Cleopatra, When you remove the peach fuzz with dermaplaning, you also remove the … [Read more...]
