Infographic - Beauty Blogger Favourites

I was lucky enough to be featured in the 45 Beauty Bloggers Favourites infographic created by Dream Models... I love the drawing of me!

Here are my faves, but be sure to check out the full list including gorgeous bloggers like Pixiwoo and vipxo by clicking this link.


The Straight Brush

I don't know if it's just me, but it feels that every time I have been on Facebook recently, The Straight Brush has popped up as a sponsored post. Curiosity got the better of me - I clicked through, and saw a whole load of videos apparently made by actual customers, using The Straight Brush with fantastic results.

It was £34 delivered - a bargain, I had thought - if it can produce results like those I had seen in the videos... so I purchased it. I have very thick, long hair... so I thought I'd give it a go on video - to see if it really works...


Video : Love Me Beauty - The Beauty Box With a Twist

If you are a fan of beauty boxes - feast your eyes on Love Me Beauty  - the beauty box that's a little different to all the others. 

Love Me Beauty gives you 60 credits a month to 'spend' on their online boutique (more if you sign up for a lengthier plan) - giving you the choice of exactly what comes through your door from their specially selected products for the month. 

Not only do they work with new, emerging brands, they work with the big daddy brands too - giving you a nice mix of discovery from fresh and new, to tried and tested favourites. 

If you don't manage to get online to make your selection, you will be send products based on your personal profile that you fill in when you join. 

This is the most personal box I have come across, and a great way to try those new products. 

A subscription costs £10 per month (or works out less if you join for longer) for 20% off you can use my discount code of gorgeous20 which is valid for all new subscriptions.

Video : Hawaii Haul

It was inevitable that a little bit of shopping was going to happen while I was in Hawaii - I hit Sephora, the Drug Store and Bath & Body Works... check out what I picked up:


Video : Hawaii Vlog

I am back from Paradise! Hawaii was absolutely beautiful - I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. We did a little detour to Paris on the way - then on to Big Island where we stayed in the most amazing hotel (Hilton Waikoloa Village) - the grounds were incredible, and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. While we were there we swam with dolphins, and went to Mauna Kea and saw what felt like every single star in the universe from above the clouds - unforgettable memories.

From there we went to Maui where we stayed in the Marriott Wailea - unfortunately it rained for 99% of the time we were on the island, but we did a little shopping and did The Road to Hana which is a road trip with over 600 turns in it, along the most lush scenery. You can stop to look at waterfalls, hike, see ocean pools and pieces of nature that you don't see elsewhere. A luau is a traditional Hawaiian feast with a hula dance and you eat traditional foods - we did that there too.

Our last stop was Oahu where we stayed in Honolulu which was a completely different pace of life. Waikiki had the hustle and bustle of a city, while being on a tropical beach - there were all kinds of shops there from Hermes to The Cheesecake Factory. We certainly took advantage of all the American eateries, although now my body has got used to having a short stack of pancakes for breakfast every morning and is crying out at me when I'm feeding it granola and yoghurt. Around the edges of the island are gorgeous white sand turquoise water beaches, so we made the most of those, as well as doing a bit of snorkelling, kayaking and visiting many a bar!

We documented the trip in a little (well, fairly long actually, but we were gone for almost 3 weeks so I think I have done well to get it to around half an hours' worth of footage!) vlog - so if you are planning a trip to Hawaii and want to see some of what's there to add to your itinerary, have a watch. If you just want to see what it was like, have a watch. If you're feeling nosey, have a watch. If you're bored, have a watch.... you get the idea. 


Jo Malone London x Judy Blame

Jo Malone London has had a bit of a transformation, thanks to the legendary stylist that is Judy Blame. He is responsible for pieces giving the 'Look' to the likes of Duran Duran, Boy George and Kylie Minogue... and now Jo Malone Regent Street!

One of Judy's prominent pieces in his fashion work, are buttons - where the theme is carried into the store makeover, which will feature in the Regent Street boutique for the month of June. When customers purchase a 100ml Cologne of their choice, they are given the opportunity to customise their bottle with a sticker sheet designed by the man himself. Inspired by the pearly Kings and Queens, button stickers are given in the shapes of an anchor (for hope), and a heart (for charity). The cologne is then presented in an iconic Judy Blame keepsake box, tied together with a post-punk pin. 

I had the pleasure of meeting Judy in the store yesterday, where I felt under immense pressure to use every single sticker on my sheet.... which I succeeded in doing. There's something strangely therapeutic involved in stickering when there are no children around! 

The limited edition offer is exclusive to the Regent Street boutique, Selfridges and until the end of June.

Holiday's are coming... so I made a little trip to Primark (and a tiny one to H&M and River Island too!) I love watching haul videos... so here's my offering!
