As we approach Summer, it’s time to look at the top hair trends for Summer 2018. Bold experimental looks and colours are all in. With throwback looks of the 70’s and 90’s. Middle partings and oversized braids are going to be huge this year.
Sleek and structured updos are big on the catwalk. They show off the face, team it with a stunning dress and you are sorted for a night out.
Short bob styles with the ends curled in are big news for the easy to maintain look. In fact if you have a problem with a receding hairline and not feeling the most confident you can opt for lace front wigs which can make you feel amazing about your hair. You wouldn’t know it but the woman in the photo below is wearing one.

It’s nearly that time of year again – Valentine’s Day. The day to treat your special other half with gifts, love and affection. If you are like me, I find it hard to get a gift for my husband, he is always hard to buy for! So to give you lots of ideas and inspiration I’ve come up with this gift guide.
I have divided it into three segments – Men’s, Women’s and a Naughty but Nice section 😉
Men’s Valentine’s Gifts
Kicking us off is this Gold Aftershave. It smells gorgeous. Notes of Lemon, Bergamot and Lime. Heart notes: Geranium, Rose, Jasmine and Iris. Base notes: Patchouli, Cedar, Leather and Amber. A fresh, modern and elegant scent.
A few weeks back I reviewed the Sensse Hot and Cool Facial Bar, and absolutely loved it. This past week I have been trying out the Sensse silicone facial cleansing brush. After quite a few sleepless nights with baby girl teething and her nightmares my skin has suffered. It feels dull and lifeless, tired and spotty.
I’m not a huge makeup girl as you can probably tell, but I do have the odd face and tubs of skin cream around. I may forget to use it most days but I try! When I was asked to try out this Oyster Skincare Brightening Eye Serum I thought it wouldn’t hurt to give it a go. Maybe it will help to remove the bags from around my tired eyes. It might even give me one of those fresh face looks!
With work. moving house, baby girl and other things going on at the moment my poor eyes need some attention. Tired is an understatement!
I have always been a fan of Lee Stafford products, so when I was asked to review the Lighten Up Mirror, I was very excited! Not only is it in one of my favourite colours, but it’s a very useful product that will stand out on my bathroom shelf. I will keep it in here for use in the very early mornings (I’m talking before 5am!). It’s very lightweight so great to transport to your dressing table if needed.
The Lighten Up Mirror arrived very well packaged in polystyrene inside the cardboard box. This is needed due to the breakable nature of the mirror. We don’t want 7 years bad luck do we?
What is the purpose of the Lighten Up Mirror?
So the purpose of the mirror is to complete your dressing area in style with the pink chrome mirror – I love this!
It has a soft warm illumination perfect for your beauty regime – Totally needed to cover up my bags under my eyes from the lack of sleep!
Double sided with a 360 degrees rotating angle to make sure you look glamorous from every angle – aww thanks, just what I need!
1x and 3x magnification for those close up moments when a steady hand is needed.
For the fashion concious lady we have these fabulous collars from The Shirt Company. I think they are fun and great for dressing up a going out or the smart business outfit. This is the Viola.
This collar is not quite as formal as the Viola. It’s known as the Peony. Very pretty in black. The Shirt Company really has lots of pretty shirts and tops available on their online shop.
Why not take a look and treat someone this Christmas?
I love all types of curds. On toast, great for using in cakes oh and my favourite – on scones with Cornish clotted cream. Yum! This passionfruit and lemon curd is amazing from Scarlett & Mustard. Fresh and zingy. A great little gift. Why not add their blackcurrent & Star Anise, Lime & Mint and Toffee Apple curds to a little gift basket?
A couple of weeks back I reviewed The Book of Everyone. These books really do make great personalised gifts. This one is for my husband for Christmas, but I’ve gone and ordered one for my sister as well.
I love the way they take you on a journey back in time. You can learn about the day you were born, What was the number one single, amongst other facts.
A great gift for that person you never know what to buy for them.
