Bobbi Brown Skincare

I've recently fallen head over heels for Bobbi Brown skincare, and it's completely transformed my skin. I'm pretty dubious when it comes to trying out skincare from a brand that has always been known for making make up, as more times that not, they get it so wrong what they don't stick to what they know. Bobbi Brown, however have absolutely nailed the transition into skincare. Over the past few months, in the run up to the wedding I've been really trying to pin down my skincare routine to something that I'm really happy with and during the process I've been trying out so many bits from Bobbi Brown. 

I'll start with the products that I think have made the biggest difference to my skin. Firstly, I've been using the Soothing Cleansing Oil every evening and I've noticed such a difference in my skin. I've found that overall the texture is much more even and my skin just generally looks super hydrated. It contains a real mix of different oils, which I think it what makes my skin feel super soft and hydrated. The second product I'm really impressed with is the Skin Relief Calming Complex serum from the Remedies range. I started using this probably able 2 months ago and I cannot tell you the difference it has made to my skin. I used to have so many red and blotchy patches on my forehead and cheeks and this just completely eliminates them. I also use it on my neck and chest area if I get a bit of redness there, as that also works really well. I've used a few of the other serums from the Remedies range, and they're all really great but I'd say this is the stand out product for me. 

Next up is the Skin Salve Restoring Treatment, which is a hard sort of balm that works absolute wonders on dry patches of skin. I have a really strange, raised dry area of skin on my cheeks and this is slowly getting rid of it. It has a very balm like texture and sort of acts like a protect shield to any dry areas of skin. This is really good if like my you have random patches of super rough dry skin.

Other products I've used from the range are the Extra Repair Serum, which is good if you generally have dry skin. I find using this in combination with the Cleansing Oil really helps to restore moisture back into the skin. I've also tried the Hydrating Face Tonic, which I would say is my least favourite from the range, as I didn't find it made too much of a difference to my skin.

Overall I am really, really impressed with the skincare from Bobbi Brown and I think the fact that 3 things have worked their way into my almost daily routine speaks volumes. 

Have you tried any products from the range, and is there anything you think I need to try next?

Häagen-Dazs Strawberries and Cream


Häagen-Dazs Strawberries and Cream

Summer is now officially in full swing and with that so is Wimbledon and the season of tennis. Being someone who absolutely loves anything quintessentially British I always truly look forward to Wimbledon and everything that comes with it from the strawberries and cream to the many jugs of Pimms. There’s nothing better than celebrating summer by watching the worlds very best tennis players play for the most prestigious title in the sport. I’ve never been lucky enough to attend Wimbledon, but it’s definitely on my list of things I would love to do at some point in my life. Most years I either watch the matches at home or head to the pub and watch with friends over pimms and fizz, which I guess isn’t too bad!

Now although I didn’t manage to secure tickets to the championship this year,  you may have seen on my Instagram that I recently attended the very glitzy and star-studded WTA pre-Wimbledon launch party at Kensington Roof Gardens with Häagen-Dazs to celebrate the launch of their new Strawberries and Cream limited edition ice cream bar. The event was held on the most perfect summer evening with full access to the roof gardens that allowed the players, celebs and tennis lovers to enjoy some sunshine whilst sipping champagne and eating as much ice cream as possible.

 As I mentioned I love anything truly British and I couldn’t think of anything more fitting than a strawberries and cream ice cream to bring a playful twist on the Wimbledon classic whilst paying tribute to the much adored flavour pairing of The Championships. The delicious treat is made with handpicked strawberries, the Häagen-Dazs signature luxury ice cream, and enveloped in a rich Belgian chocolate coating, if that doesn’t get you excited I’m not sure what will! Along with the limited edition flavour,Häagen-Dazs have also partnered with Bjӧrn Borg to create the limited edition packaging for the ice cream bar. The limited edition Bjӧrn Borg  designed box has the official championship logo on the front and tennis balls filled with swirls of strawberries and cream, which makes for the perfect Instagram picture!

As Häagen-Dazs are the official ice cream of the Wimbledon Championships and WTA this year, their limited edition strawberries and cream ice cream will be available at The Championships for everyone to enjoy. If like me you haven’t managed to get your hands on tickets, then fear not as the single serve ice cream is available to order on Amazon Prime Now. This offers customers in selected postcodes a choice of a two-hour, same day delivery slot to experience Wimbledon where ever you are. However, if like me you and you can’t stop at just one ice cream (I may or may have not had 3 or 4 at the party) then you can buy the multi-packs from Sainsbury’s to stock up your freezer until the end of July.

How have you been celebrating The Championships and have you tried the limited edition ice cream yet?

Fragrance is such a personal thing, which is why I often find it quite difficult to write fragrance reviews, because what I absolutely love may not be what you guys love. I really tailor the fragrance I wear depending on the weather, my mood and what I'm wearing. For example if I'm wearing a summer dress I'll go for a scent that reminds me of summer and being on holiday.

A Guide to New York

As I'm sure you've all seen that I recently went on a trip to New York, and quite frankly I imagine you're all sick to death of my pictures, but I just can't stop posting them! I've been to New York quite a few times now and each time I post a little summary of my trip so this time I wanted to put together a guide to New York as I've now got quite a few tips to share!

Ever since I started blogging I don’t think there has been a year that I have missed the Clarins summer launches. They’re by far my favourite summer launch from all the beauty brands and each year they just totally nail it and this year is no different. 

For this summer they’ve gone with the whole palm tree and beachy feel with all of the packaging having layers of palm trees on them over a mahogany, brown background. It feels very Miami esque and I love it. As with all of their past summer launches, they have of course brought out a new Summer Bronzing and Blush Palette, which for me is the highlight of all of their summer collections. This year, it’s a slightly lighter bronzer, which I really like and is divided into 4 different sections each containing a slightly different shade of terracotta to help you tailor the level of bronze you want to go, which is perfect for holidays where your skin tone changes on a daily basis. 

I’ve mentioned how I love their Comfort Lip Oils before (post here), and they are extending this line by adding 4 new shades/variations. My favourite is the Honey scented one with very tiny gold flecks of glitter, which add a subtle amount of shine to the lips. The other 3 new shades are a bright pink tint, a cherry red shade and then a blue tinged mint shade, which is meant to slightly plump the lips. 

Moving onto eyes, they have launched a brand new 4 Shadow Palette all with very beachy, summery shades. There is a beautiful burnt orange and then 3 very neutral brown and beige shades. Extending to their already existing 24 hour waterproof liner family, there are two absolutely stunning golden bronzed shades, which are so soft to apply and blend out. 

Finally, they have launched a new Mattifying and Pore Perfecting Foundation, which comes in 3 new shades and gives the perfect amount of coverage for a beach day or just if you don’t want to wear a lot of make up in the heat.

Skincare For Dry Skin

Skincare for dry skin

My skincare has recently had somewhat of a revamp. This has coincided with the change in season, a change in my diet and also there have just been some really amazing skincare launches lately. In terms of the brands I’ve been using, I am still sticking with old favourites like Clarins and Triology as I don’t think that will ever change, but I’ve also been discovering a few new brands like Immuncologie and Oskia to add to my collection.

The Rosewood Hotel in London, is a hotel that I have wanted to stay in for absolutely ages and this month I finally got to stay there! I was kindly invited by the lovely team from Juicy Couture to celebrate the launch of their new Viva La Juicy Sucre fragrance, which is a super fun, sweet and playful perfume. If you've ever seen the outside of the Rosewood hotel, you will agree that it is absolutely stunning, and the inside is just as beautiful. My room had the most enormous marshmallow bed and possibly the most stunning bathroom I've ever seen in my life. The bathtub was made entirely from marble and I managed to squeeze in 2 baths during my stay to try and make the most of it. The vanity was also made from marble with a beautiful hammered metal sink with the most perfect lighting for doing make up and of course mirror selfies. It's essentially my bathroom of dreams!

As part of the event we attended a lovely dinner in the private dining area of the Mirror Room, which is an absolutely beautiful dining room in the Rosewood. Luckily the dinner didn't go on for too long as we had some time afterwards to enjoy our rooms before going to sleep. 

The next day I had the nicest lie in and then indulged in some breakfast in bed, which if you order room service I'd totally recommend getting the smoked salmon bagel. After breakfast I took a nice long Lush bubble bath, because you gotta make the most of a marble bathtub and then totally pigged out on the most delicious Biscuiteers Valentine's Day biscuits. If you haven't heard of the Biscuiteers before they're the cutest London bakery that do the most beautiful biscuits ever, as you can see from the images above. They kindly send me a box of their Valentine's Day box and I couldn't think of a better place to eat them. 

If you ever need a hotel to stay in whilst in London, or just fancy somewhere to eat I couldn't recommend The Rosewood Hotel enough.
