Beauty on the Go: Face

July 22, 2014   -   0 comments   -  

Packing up skincare, haircare, makeup and supplements takes me ten times longer than it takes to bulldoze through my closet and decide on what gets the magic ticket to come on vacation with me. Condensing my encyclopaedic collection into three small(ish) travel bags is a real skill it in its own right.

Firstly since using my Laura Mercier makeup organiser my travels have instantly improved – no that’s not grossly exaggerated. For the first instalment of my travel series I’m going to share what face or base products made the cut. Bearing in mind I have been spending the past three weeks in the gym or on the beach and haven’t actually used any of this stuff. I also didn’t pack for full blown glam (which is not my cup-of-tea during warmer months.

This little treasure has been in my beauty arsenal for a while now and it certainly hasn’t hit cult status for no reason.

Review: Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Masque

July 14, 2014   -   0 comments   -  

I’ve been on the long road towards repairing parched and damaged strands for some time now. The first step I’ve made is to add roots in my natural hair colour and just stick to balayaging the top section of my hair twice a year instead of every six weeks. I have noticed a huge amount of growth since and a fullness in my hair that I thought wasn’t ever in the cards for me.

On my mission towards long, healthy hair I have developed a slight penchant for hoarding various treatments and conditioners. Alterna’s Caviar line had been something that I have seen around and always been interested in trying.41YF4vZNR-L

Review: Bobbi Brown Beach

July 11, 2014   -   0 comments   -  

It’s probably safe to say that everyone loves summer. Tanned skin, beachy hair, freckles (my dermatologist will kill me), cotton nightgowns as summer dresses and beer at sunset, it doesn’t really get much better. Imagine my excitement when I learnt about Bobbi Brown’s Beach fragrance which promises to take us back to golden sand, refreshing salty water and the warmth of the summer sun.┬áInstead of ordering this on the double online, I decided to test it out on my next visit to Nordstrom. What a good decision that was.

Review: Tocca Bodycare

July 10, 2014   -   0 comments   -  

Anyone who knows me well knows that my bathroom resembles a Space NK stock room. Hoarder doesn’t even cover it. Skincare and body products are my Achilles heel.

Tocca has been on my radar for a while. I have tried and loved numerous perfumes; Colette being my favourite which I have purchased again and again. Their candles had been next on my list until I discovered their line of body products. I chose three products in different scents to give myself a better idea of the various products and scents on offer and let me say I was surprised in every sense of the word (not to mention that these puppies are all paraben free).

Lily Aldridge: Makeup

July 6, 2014   -   0 comments   -  


It’s no secret that I have a not-so-secret girl crush on Lily Aldridge. She’s elegant, natural and always looks imperfectly put together. Her hair is always effortless and makeup mostly bare.

Lily’s recent red carpet appearance at a Chanel event showcased beautifully lined eyes, ‘bare’ skin and a slick of pale lipstick.

To see what products I would recommend for this look see below.

Dior Diorblush Cannage Edition Blush Review

July 4, 2014   -   0 comments   -  


Whoever said don’t judge a book by its cover hasn’t met this blush. I stumbled upon this browsing the Saks website late on Sunday evening and was literally transfixed. I immediately ordered the pink shade figuring I would pick up the coral later (I couldn’t quite stomach spending $120 on two blushes).

This beautiful blush is packaged in a heavy metal case and comes with the sweetest mini kabuki brush that I’ve ever beheld. After hours and hours spent ogling the beautiful design I finally decided it was time for a swatch.

If you haven’t heard about this palette it’s fair to say you have been living under a rock. Anastasia Bevely Hills’ Contour Kit has been like gold dust to find. Never before have I had to put my name on a waiting list before to purchase makeup (not my finest moment) but the hundreds of rave reviews and tantalising videos on Youtube made this purchase a no-brainer for me.

Favourite Body Products

I’ve just lived through one of the most important days of my life (no it’s not a cut price preview of the fabled Net-a-Porter sample sale). For my wedding I must have tried every body scrub, lotion and polish known to man and boy oh boy have I come up with the perfect combination to achieve blissfully soft skin Cleopatra couldn’t even believe after daily milk baths.
