Earlier this year I took my mum to Champneys Health Spa in Tring for a little TLC and to celebrate a special birthday. I had heard so much about Champneys and they had a lot to live up to based on all the hype. Don’t worry, they didn’t disappoint. From the very second you enter the grounds you get a sense of what your visit is going to be like. Past the gates lies pristine gardens and gives a sense of wellbeing right from the start. As you carry on down the long Downton-esque driveway you approach the beautiful building… View Post

Well the temperature has certainly dropped and I am becoming my usual hermit-like self (snuggled away in the warm until the sun comes out again). As much as I’d like to avoid the cold unfortunately it’s necessary to go outside from time to time. As always the cold weather can cause dry skin and that’s something I like to avoid also.

I’m slightly late to the party with this blog post but I have finally managed to get my hands on a few NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams.

As an added perk it has a built in sharpener. Mua Power Pout Glaze Low Voltage Gloss was a lovely addition to the box. A non-sticky lip tint that gives a subtle… View Post

I have always had fine, slightly crazy hair that does its own thing. Do you know that type? But over the years I have tried and tested many products to try and maintain its condition and tame it somewhat. When hairdressers say the shampoo and conditioner you are using matters, believe them – it really does. I used to use Herbal Essences which smelt lovely and did make my hair soft. But around 2 years ago I started using Kerastase Bain Volumifique. After years of styling and dying my hair I noticed that your standard shampoo wasn’t doing much to… View Post
