Back on Roaccutane - My Journey to Clear Skin in Videos

I have suffered with bad skin on and off since as long as I can remember. I have tried so many different things - some which I think have worked, only to find that it was a very short term solution. I have been on Roaccutane in the past, but a very low dose, so I decided to see if it was an option again. I documented my journey through daily vlogs, which I found incredible useful to watch when I was on Roaccutane the first time round. I hope these may help someone too.

Going to the hospital to see if I could go back onto Roaccutane and seeing what my course would be if so:

Jo Loves : Shot Candle Collection

Jo Loves Shot Candle (TM) Studio is the first, of I'm sure to be of many, studios owned by Jo Malone where customers can go, and create their very own, candle, with help from the wonderful staff who have all be trained personally by Jo. They may even be lucky enough to meet Actual Jo, who spends a lot of her time there.


When I visited the Elizabeth Street store it had only been open for 4 days, and already was stirring up a storm - items going out of stock, a hen party, and a constant flow of customers. The story that goes alongside it, makes it all the more magical - Jo's first ever job in a florist was in the very same building that is now her studio... 50 years later, on her birthday, her husband presented her with the keys, and it was then that she became a 'shopkeeper' - and a bloody good shop it is too!

The whole of the Jo Loves range can be found at the front of the shop, as well as a customer experience of 'Fragrance Tapas' which I am definitely going back to try... then the room to the back is where the Shot Candles are created.

After seeing people customising their own Pop Tarts in New York, Jo was inspired and decided to make a customisable candle - giving you the choice of how you want something to smell, without taking away any quality - resulting in a product unique to you. The Shot Candle is made up of two parts - a base, which sits in the bottom and up the edges of the glass jar... then the shot which is the shape of a (rather large!) shot glass. You choose your fragrance of each, and they burn and meld at different rates so your candle will always smell different. Sometimes it'll smell of the Shot fragrance, sometimes of the Base, sometimes of the both - and other times one will be stronger than the other.

Jo described how, to her, scents are like memories - so each scent will trigger off a memory for her - Tahitian Gardenia, for instance (which is one of the base smells), takes her back to a distinct memory walking down a beach. Her philosophy is that memories should be created from fragrance - like a photo album... and I love that.
