Sometimes, just sometimes a girl needs to look down and see something truly fabulous. Ladies…I give you Dolce & Gabbana’s sequin mesh booties. Available from The Outnet now with fifty percent off, these lovelies will lift any outfit! If you are after a more thrifty alternative, feast your eyes on these rather similar booties from & Other Stories…not bad ne pas at £125?!
Finalement…Oppo has arrived! The brainchild of brothers Charlie and Harry Thuillier Oppo is a lucious alternative to standard sugar and fat laden ice-cream. Made from fresh milk, virgin coconut oil and stevia leaf, at just 40 calories a scoop, Oppo is a great alternative for diabetics and ice-cream lovers alike. I went for the Madagascan vanilla and baobab – a nutrient dense African fruit rich in vitamin C, fibre and antioxidants. In my humble opinion, Oppo is a win win treat!
Minerve perched high above the Rivers La Cesse and Le Briant is a gem of the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France. With few vehicles and pedestrian streets it is a place I could happily return to year after year.
A lazy lunch at the spectacular Relais Chantovent is a must. Being in receipt of the new L’assiette du Michelin or Michelin Plate – a smaller accolade than the notorious Michelin Star but no less respected, the food is simply real french cuisine at its best.
I am super in love with my personalised Anna Walker London Classic Brunswick Tote . Crafted from Italian vegetable-tanned leather with raw edge finishing and interior any item purchased from Walker can be personalised with gold foil or blind debossed lettering for no additional charge! It is wonderful to come across this level of skill and craftsmanship right here in the City.
I have my eye on a large Oban Pouch in Rust for a future purchase from but to be quite honest I could happily purchase the entire collection! x
I am loving my Forte Organics samples. The Citrus Body Cream is deeply moisturising and smells divine. I have been using the Almond and Hazelnut face scrub once a week for the last month and I have been pretty impressed with the nourishing and clarifying effects. Please feel free to send me more Mr Forte!
Recently I have heard a lot of chatter as to the benefits of using Skinade – a dietary supplement which promises to transform your skin. It comes in the form of a liquid supplement come sachet which is added to water. Skinade claims to allow you to “drink your way to younger looking skin in just 30 days“! That’s quite a claim so I thought I had better see what all the fuss is about.
Unfortunately, I had not anticipated the somewhat excessive price tag of £99 for a 30 day supplement…but then I had an idea…
The manufactures of Skinade very kindly list the constituent active vitamins and minerals contained in the supplement so I thought why not buy the individual vitamins such as; Vitamin C, MSM (a type of organic sulphur which improves skin elasticity), Mangosteen, Vitamin B complex, Omegas 3 & 6, amino acid and L-lysine?
I have been using the below concoction of supplements for a month now and I have to say I have noticed some real changes. There is a very real radiance or sheen to the skin. My complexion appears less prone to monthly breakouts and dry patches. In total I spent a mere £35 on a selection of good quality vegan supplements. It definitely seems to make sense to give ones skin a helping hand. Bisous
Summer is great isn’t? The balmy summer evenings, blue skies as far as the eye can see and hair as dry as freeze-dried hay bales! Alors, I have elected to bring in the big-guns to impart some much needed moisture into my weary locks. Enter Aveda’s after Sun Hair Mask. This rich, creamy mask helps to sooth and hydrate sun damaged hair. When at home I like to smother my ends and pile into a loose bun. I can then get on with the day and rinse when I feel my hair has been suitably satiated.
This mask is also great as an overnight hair treatment for particularly sun-damaged locks. Apply liberally and pop on a shower cap overnight. Probably best not to invite the Mr over that night though… x
