Baylis & Harding: the Go-To Gift Sets

I can safely say that this has been the year I’ve been the least prepared for Christmas, ever. Wrapping paper is still in full rolls, the tree has only been up for around 48 hours, and we only just got food today (and had a bit of an upset when there was no Buck’s Fizz left – Christmas dinner without Buck’s Fizz? Nuh uh!) But that blind panic when you realise you haven’t bought all of your presents? That’s the worst, right? Luckily, each and every year, Baylis & Harding release the most beautiful gift sets at wonderfully affordable prices.…

A VIP Airport Experience with World Duty Free

Let’s be honest: hanging around in an airport for three hours whilst you wait for your flight can be quite the bore sometimes. I usually get my bags checked in, head straight for a mandatory pre-flight Burger King (it’d be rude not to, right?), browse the shops and wish I was rich enough to buy everything, and then find myself sat around just waiting and w a i t i n g for my gate number. Just get me in the sunshine already, pur-lease. But, this wasn’t the case when I flew to Cyprus last month. In fact, I had…

Nautical style inspo this Autumn with Tommy Hilfiger | #TOMMYXGIGI

I’m sure everyone out there has heard of Gigi Hadid by now. (And if you haven’t where have you been?!) She’s an absolute stunner, super stylish, effortlessly cool and a hugely successful model. And she made an appearance as a guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race. #Goals. Now the 21 year old beauty has one more achievement under her belt: she’s collaborated with the legendary Tommy Hilfiger to design the new #TOMMYXGIGI AW16/17 range inspired by nautical themes and fashion pieces Gigi would wear out and about. The collection is a navy-white medley of sailor shorts, embellishments, striped sweaters, double…

7 things I’ve noticed since becoming a redhead

  I first discovered hair dye back in primary school when my mum started using semi-permanent boxes on her hair, and so, of course, I wanted a go as well. Since then I’ve been through a lot of the rainbow – blonde, red, blue, pink, brown, black, purple, highlights, ombré – but now that I am back to red (all done professionally nowadays, of course), I’ve started to notice some things that I couldn’t quite remember from before… 1. Wearing red on red is scary. I mean, red is an awesome colour to rock, especially on a night out, but…

True North De-Stressed Serum 4.1 Review

When it comes to skincare, I have to confess: I’m not very dedicated. I’m a bit of a bog standard cleanse and moisturise kind of girl. I tone occasionally and will do the odd exfoliating mask, but anything else is usually new territory to me. Okay, sometimes I don’t even cleanse and moisturise. I go for the baby wipe. There. I said it. 😳 Recently, however, I’ve been trying a couple of new products, and I’m totally digging them. (And I’m trying to up my skincare game, I swear!) You may have seen recently that I reviewed a SKN-RG product…

SKN-RG Ultra Marine Collagen Creme Review

  Before being sent this product to review, I had never come across SKN-RG before, so of course, I did my research, and was pretty pleased with the info I found. SKN-RG is an organic skincare brand which, after years of research and discovery, was founded by Robert and Deborah Scott. Using natural ingredients combined with scientific advances, they have created a wide range of organic products for numerous skin concerns. I was sent the Ultra Marine Collagen Creme* and immediately fell in love with the packaging. The creme comes in a sleek red box and is presented in a…

Lusting After Dresses I Can’t Afford (And Praying I Win £500 to Spend at Maje!)

Summer is just around the corner, and I have plenty of events coming up – three holidays, my graduation and two weddings – all of which I have to find some gorgeous dresses for. After stumbling across Maje, a brand I’d not previously heard of, I fell in love with four fabulous dresses that would be just perfect. The downside? They’re pretty far out of my price range, and I can’t afford a single one. The upside? Maje happen to be running a competition to win £500 to spend. Yes please!

Preparing for Summer Holiday Style with Aldo (plus a chance to win £500!)

I am a self-confessed holiday addict. And I’m proud of it. We all deserve to take some time off to relax in our perfect holiday setting and calm our minds. For me, a sunshine holiday is favourite, (though I do love a city break too!) and with Benidorm, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Tenerife coming up for me in 2016, I have plenty to look forward to. So when I saw that Aldo were running a competition to win £500 to spend with them, I jumped at the chance and browsed their site to pick out some of my summer favourites.…
