Agua de Colonia

I have long been a fan of eau de cologne. When I was a mere babe in arms, my mother would dab a hint of eau de cologne on me after a bath. It was a ritual I both loved and looked forward to.
Perhaps this is where my love of unisex scents originates from? Who can say? The older more mature I get, the more I tend to look towards the less overtly gender defined scents. For the last couple of years I have been wearing Acqua-di-Parma Colonia which is a warm and spicy multi-faceted scent.

Recently, I stumbled upon an everyday alternative to suit all budgets, Agua de Colonia Concentrada by Spanish company Alvarez Gómez is a subtle mix of Mediterranean flowers and plants such as Spanish lemon and Geranium , Eucalyptus and lavender and with a price tag of just fifteen euros it’s a steal. Go get yours! x

New in: Yolke Silk Slippers


Silk Cocoons

Have I ever told you about my long running love affair with Silk fabric? I simply love the transformative nature of this mysterious material. Slip on a soft brushed-silk camisole and a pair of jeans become somehow elevated. Speaking of elevation, 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

I have started to I keep a rose by my bed in a bid to remind myself to be grateful for life’s simple little pleasures… 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
