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.

Video: Spring Primark Haul

I love watching Primark haul videos - it's a great way of seeing if it's worth popping into a store without the hassle of searching through the rails. So, seeing as I did a bit of a Primark shop recently - I thought I would share my haul.... enjoy!

Video: Charlotte Tilbury Golden Goddess Tutorial

I finally have a new computer, which means some blogging may be happening!

To kick it off, I've dipped my toe into the water with a video tutorial.

I work for Charlotte Tilbury - and have the pleasure of working with Sergio, one of the Lead Makeup Artists at Selfridges London. For this video, he created the Golden Goddess look on me - and we get to hear some of his tips and tricks on the way too...

WIN PürMinerals Jupiter Ascending Collection

I'm sure you'll have noticed the trailers for Jupiter Ascending... with Channing Tatum!? ....thought so! Makeup brand PurMinerals have made a collection inspired by the film, and have set a handful of bloggers a challenge. You may have seen Zoe Newlove or Laura Louise Beauty's challenge posts... but this is the last of the challenges, and your last chance to win the collection, which is exclusive to Feel Unique, (plus pair of tickets to see the film)... with me!


I was sent a parcel from PurMinerals, with some products to use for the challenge, as well as a photo taken from the film which is the makeup they wanted me to recreate. 


Those that know me know I am a Double Wear wearer, but the PurMinerals Disappearing Act Concealer with the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup (in Shade Golden Medium) over the top worked a dream. The foundation buffed into the skin easily, great coverage, and fab staying power. I am definitely going to be adding this one to my regular makeup bag.

I also used the Mineral Glow Bronzing Powder, and warmed my face up slightly, to make the look a little more wearble than that of Jupiter Jones in the film. I finished off with Kinky blush, a gorgeous coraley-pink, then it was onto the eyes.

Babyfoot

WARNING! DO NOT READ IF YOU GET GROSSED OUT BY FEET!

I first heard of Babyfoot in a magazine, I think Allure - telling me that it was a product which makes your feet peel, and you are left with feet like a baby's. I was so intrigued that I had to check it out for myself. Amazon sells it over here, but always one for a bargain, I bought mine from China via eBay for £3 or something silly. When it arrived the packaging wasn't the same, so I'm guessing that this one is an imitation, but because I don't speak Chinese (if that's the language that's written on the box!) I can't tell for sure!


Due to my language downfalls, I had to google the instructions for actual Babyfoot, which I followed for this. Inside the box is two plastic sock-type things which have a liquid in the bottom which I'm guessing is some kind of acid. You put one foot in each, seal them with the sticky tabs provided, slip some socks on and leave them on for 3 hours. It was hard to stay stationary for such a long time - walking proved... squelchy... although not impossible! After the 3 hours I removed the socks, gave my feet a rinse, and waited for the magic to happen.
