Get Summer Ready with Avene Hydrance Optimale

Avene Hydrance Optimale

Seems like summer in England is as much of a myth as Santa, the fact is the season is finally here and what better to talk about than new face products targeted to glorious sunny days?

I love natural looking skin during the warmer months so tinted moisturisers are my go to products. And with the sun shinning upon us a bit more often than usual, SPF is a must. These are just some of many reasons why I've been really enjoying the new Avene Hydrance Optimale*.

Discovering Trilogy Products & Celebrating World Oceans Day!

Trilogy Products & Haul

I'm a huge fan of natural products so looking after my skin whilst also being environmentally friendly is something I enjoy more and more each day and take seriously. Trilogy’s mantra is ‘maximum effect on your skin, minimum effect on our environment’. So no need to say I was honoured when they approached me to take part on the World Oceans Day campaign, which is celebrated tomorrow (8th June).

Why Zoeva Nude Spectrum Is My New Favourite Palette?

Zoeva Nude Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette

I discovered Zoeva probably about 2 years ago, when it wasn't even available in the UK yet and it's become my go to brand for makeup brushes. They're now available in and Selfridges in London, which is very exciting. After hearing a lot of good things about their makeup I thought it was about time to bite the bullet and buy the Zoeva Nude Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette.

Why You Need to Try Trilogy
NEW Age-Proof Products

Trilogy Age-Proof Day Cream & CoQ10 Booster Oil

Hi, everyone! I hope you're all having a fantastic Easter break. After a couple weeks off due to a busy schedule, I'm back with a review on the new skincare range from Trilogy. The brand has become known to me thanks to their ever so popular Rosehip Oil which is their best selling product (1 sold every 22 seconds). I'm a big fan of the company's organic / natural philosophy so was very honoured to be invited to the launch of their newly reformulated Trilogy Age-Proof range.

Beauty Products on Trial
feat. Trilogy, This Works & more

Beauty Products, Skincare

One of the greatest things about being a blogger and living in London is we get the opportunity to attend some amazing events. A few months ago I went to #PegasusLive, a beauty event showcasing the latest releases from amazing brands like AveneTrilogy and more. I got to bring home a bunch of goodies, some of which I've only just had the chance to try. Along with those, I've also decided to include in this post a few other products that were recently gifted to me. So here's a quick overview of some beauty items I'm currently testing and my thoughts on each of them. :)

Pixi Glow Tonic - Is It Worth The Hype?

Pixi Glow Tonic

I've been tempted to try the ever so popular Pixi Glow Tonic for the longest time, especially after reading Caroline Hirons rave about it on her blog. For those who don't know her, she's a skincare expert who's now also a YouTuber. I don't follow her religiously but used to read her blog every now and then to get some tips on products and how to look after my skin better. I've learnt to trust Caroline's advice.

Valentine's Day Gift Guide / Wishlist*

Valentine's Day Wishlist

February 14th is coming... And I was wondering, do any of you do something special on this date? My husband and I have our wedding anniversary just before Valentine's Day so we tend to celebrate both dates at once, most of the time. We usually book a weekend away or do some sort of activity that allows us to spend good quality time together, instead of buying each other expensive gifts. "Have less. Do more", they say. And I agree. But I think things will be different this year, as we haven't planned anything exciting so far. I think I'm officially becoming a #granny. lol That being said, we still buy each other a little something. And so I decided to put together a wishlist/gift guide with a few things I'd love to receive (hopefully accompanied by some well desired chocolate). *hint hint* ;-)

Who, here, doesn't love chocolate? I think it's hard not to. And in the chocolate category of deliciousness, Nutella has to get a golden medal. Those around me know me well enough to give me a Nutella Recipe Book for Christmas (The 30 Best Recipes). It's a true gem for any chocolate lover. I'm obsessed!

Happy New Year! 

I hope you all had a wonderful time with your loved ones over the Christmas period. I really enjoyed taking a little break from blogging to go out more, sleep more, have fun and spend more quality time with my family. What's not to like? 

However, the break is now over and so is 2015. Blogging wise, it was an amazing year and I've got a lot to be thankful for. I had such a great time discovering and trying new products. And as a tradition, I've listed my favourite beauty products of 2015 for you, including only categories that really stood out to me. :)
