Of Beauty, Bees and Books (Well, One Book!)

The-Bees-Laline-Paull-without-Sleeve

Having worked with two bee brands Unbeelievable Health (who we still work with) and LifeMel, the necessity of bees in the world, and their plight is something very close to my heart. Some of you must have picked up on this through my writing as I recently received through the post a book entitled The Bees which was sent to me out of my interest in …

My First Foray Into Eyelash Enhancement with YUMILash

My-YUMILASH-BEFORE-AND-AFTER

Sadly, I am not blessed with Bambi-like lashes. They’re quite thick (I suppose) but they are not very long, and judging from the effects of lash extensions and other eyelash enhancements, it’s mostly about the length. But the lengths that some lash extensions go to are simply scary, not to mention spidery! However after seeing the stunning results of YUMILash on my dear friend Jennifer …

A Visit to Jane Scrivner’s Studio of Serene Sanctuary

Jane-Scrivner-Treatment-Room2

When Nicky from Sparcana invited me for a treatment session at the Serene Sanctuary with none other than Jane Scrivner herself, how could I refuse? Her Cleansing Balm won Best Cleanser in the Biteable Best of Beauty 2013 awards so I was keen to learn more about both the Jane Scrivner range and of course meet the lady behind the products. Also, as the dates …

Try Me, Beautiful! Unique Haircare

Unique-Haircare-Moisturizing-Shampoo-Colour-Care-Treatment

It’s been a while since the last Try Me, Beautiful! post, mainly because I’ve not been away anywhere and therefore I’ve been beautifying out of full size vessels. I’ve a few trips coming up this summer so I am sure my blogs will be more regularly interspersed with TMB recordings. I picked up these Unique Haircare samples at Vivaness in Nuremberg earlier on in the …

Foot Patches – For Sleep and Detox

Detoxology-Foot-Pads

I really am cleaning out my blog-set at the moment. This post has been on the to do list for quite some time now! I’ve long since used all the Detoxology Foot Patches but I still have some Sleep Patch-Its. I believe I picked up a second box from somewhere. There has been much debate given to whether these footpads actually work, and I for …

Holiday Health Helpers: My favourite products

Holiday-Health-Heroes

This is the last post in my Caribbean series, and I think it quite apt that just 12 hours from the time I publish this post, I’ll be stepping on a plane and jet-setting off to the Greek island of Kea for a week. My friend is getting married out there so we thought we’d tie our summer holiday in with it. I need to …

Holiday Body Care Bliss from Bamford

Bamford-Rose-Body-Wash-and-Lotion

I received this Bamford Body Care Duo in an Organic September Box from The Soil Association- perfect for Holiday Body Care! These are the first Bamford products I have tried, and I am yet to try any since but as I write up this post I am remembering just how impressed Mr BB and I were with these products in Antigua. They were perfect for …

Summer Skincare Saviours

Natural-Organic-Beauty-Skincare-Saviours

There are some skincare products I just come back to time and time again. Because I love the products and the experience; the smell, the texture, the look of it on my bathroom shelf. But not to sound fickle, I also return to these products for their efficacy. They actually deliver results and improvement (or at the very least maintenance!) of my skin. Here are …

My Caribbean Haircare Routine

Natural-Hair-Care

I recently wrote in a post that “everything is better in the sun”. I would like to detract this statement, for the sun can be bad for our hair, and when coupled with ocean water the partnership can leave hair rather dried out. Thankfully, I took some haircare products away with me in the hope of keeping my hair moisturised, protected and nourished. How Do the Sun …

My Favourite Zoya Nail Products

Zoya-Nails-Set

I’ve been a fan of Zoya nail products for a while now, ever since I first stumbled upon them in Whole Foods. They won Biteable Best of Beauty Award for Best Nail Polish in 2013. I love how easy the product is to apply and how long it stays chip-free for, in fact it was awarded for being the longest wearing nail polish by an independent …
