Silk Cocoons

Have I ever told you about my long running love affair with Silk? I simply love the transformation nature of this mysterious material – slip on a soft brushed- silk camisole and a pair of jeans become somehow elevated. Speaking of elevated, were I able to I would purchase the entire collection from silk couturiers Yolke and spend my days slip-sliding about town. Alas, I shall have to make do with these delicate silk slippers… x

Mostly Lovin’: Glossier Soultion

“Skin Perfecter” Indeed!

I’ve been using Glossier’s Solution for two months or so and I have to confess… I couldn’t be happier with the results! I wanted to wait an adequate amount of time before writing a review and I feel two months provides enough time for any changes (good or bad) to occur in the skin.
So I’ve just sprung open my third bottle of the Solution which I use once a day in the evening before bed. I saturate a cotton pad as instructed sweeping across my face. I like to swill mouthwash for a minute whilst allowing the solution to begin working it’s magic and before adding anything else. I then follow with the Allies of Skin 1A Overnight Mask.

Together this duo has transformed my somewhat temperamental complexion. Gone are the monthly breakouts, random dry patches are now few and far between and the overall texture of my skin is much more refined and soft to the touch. All in all it’s a big thumbs up from me. x

Mostly Lovin’: Oribe Côte d’Azur Parfum

I’m a huge fan of Oribe’s high end hair-care line. Not only does it contain some of the finest formulations and aesthetically pleasing packaging but the beautiful signature fragrance of lychee, edlerweisse flower, lemon, bergamot and sandalwood puts me in mind of long summer nights in Portofino or some such magical place…

My love affair with the brand began when I stumbled upon the Glaze for Beautiful Colour which I have to say is incredibly nourishing and even managed to impart a degree of luster to my chemically abused locks.
The fragrance can be used to perfume both skin and hair which is a bonus in my book! x

Salty goodness…

Mostly Trying: Glossier Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream

Body Hero Perfecting Cream

I recently gave into the considerable hype and purchased Glossier Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream and so far so silky! I have been assured this baby-pink emulsion promises to deliver four results; it perfects and enhance the look of skin, tightens and smooths, increases skin’s elasticity, and provides all-day hydration.
I am a fan of the subtle opalescent hue which could so easily have been overdone but manages to add a delicate sheen which is flattering to most skin tones. The baby-fresh scent is an added but entirely welcome bonus. So that’s a silky thumbs up from V! Bisous
