Apothem new CBD brand launches in Harvey Nichols

I was very fortunate to be invited to a gorgeous breakfast at Harvey Nichols a couple of weeks ago week to learn all about the latest CBD brand on the block – Apothem. This is a high-end CBD brand – the clue is in the stockist, right? I have to confess that the CBD beauty revolution has sort of passed...

Body Exfoliation for Winter with 5pm

I tend to become obsessed with exfoliating in the autumn and winter months. It’s like I just want my poor, tired skin – on my body and face – to glow, and indulging in a bit of exfoliating always helps! LUSH recently gifted me two products for my body – one of them an old favourite, the other a new...

Shower Time!

The washed-out June we have had has made me think I’m constantly in a shower! So, I decided to have a look at some of the best shower products out there and share them with you here! I’m not averse to a bit of rain, but I prefer to get caught in my own shower, in my bathroom, of a morning, than in some...

The Liz Earle Beauty Co. launched a new Skin Replenishing Body Balm last month, packed with goodies like shea butter, rice brand oil and black seed extract.

Shower Shaking with L'Occitane

April may be over, but showers are still happening! Just the hot kind, that wake you up in the morning, and hopefully not the miserable kind that ruin your hair on a night out! I can’t function without standing under the shower, and I love anything that smells great to wake me up. But, because of my...

NEW Neom Body Butters

I’m addicted to NEOM’s Scent to Sleep Cleansing Balm. It cleanses beautifully, it relaxes me before bed, and I don’t feel the need to even use a night cream when I cleanse with it. So, I am hoping the brand’s new Magnesium Body Butter is just as good! Body moisturising is still an issue, so I am trying...

NEW Olverum The Body Oil

Was it last year I shared Olverum Bath Oil with you? It’s lovely stuff, a high-end brand, with gorgeous packaging, and I just don’t have a bathroom that befits it. But after major renovations over the last three months, the bathroom in our flat will just have to stay as it is for a wee while longer....

Winter Body Care

If I have one beauty resolution for the New Year it’s to take more care over my body care. I am fastidious with my application of facial skincare, and completely random and hit or miss with my body care. And in the winter, you can’t be like that. Dropping temperatures and rising heating temperatures...

Jo Malone London Christmas 2018

It’s not even December, but a lot of this lovely festive Bring on the Baubles range from Jo Malone London is already sold out online, so you might need to head to stores if you really want something. I’m not going to lie – it’s not my favourite Jo Malone London collection. I was a little underwhelmed...

Kiss The Moon for that extra hour!

An extra hour in bed always makes me happy, but for many getting a good night’s sleep is difficult, never mind adding an extra hour in.So when the clocks go back this weekend to mark the end of BST, you might need a little help in relaxing.

Keep On Tanning!

What a summer we’ve had this year so far – how long can it last? A little bit of rain is forecast as temperatures drop slightly in the next week or so (so the weather folks tell me!), so if you want to keep that tan you’ve achieved, maybe time to top it up with a little bit of fake. It’s incredible ...

Tisserand Ascot Collection

I kept turning the TV on this week and seeing posh people talking about horses, all dressed up in their finery. I also saw Mark Heyes on Lorraine, pitched up at Ascot all week, telling the nation what to wear, and what not to wear to get in to various enclosures. Which is all very nice, if you were ...
