Experiencing the Renaissance Treatment at Lush Spa Poole

•Press Visit• As much as I attempt to practise self-care, lately I have had a lot going on behind the scenes at home and it has left me feeling stressed out and overtired. Fortunately I had been invited along to the Lush Spa in Poole to experience their new treatment, Renaissance prior to its launch this Friday 14th February across the Lush Spas in the UK.

A Valentine’s Day Makeup Look with No7

•Features gifted items• Whether you love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is almost upon us and love is in the air. I am a big fan of Valentine’s, personally, and am looking forward to celebrating the day with Ed, even if we are just staying in and having a meal and some wine this year.

Winter Morning & Evening Skincare Regimes

•Features gifted items• With all the dark mornings and gloomy weather, winter can be tough on your skin and leave you feeling less than glowing. I have been making a conscious effort to work harder on maintaining a skincare regime, and have recently been sent across some brilliant products that I now swear by, so I thought I would put together a little post to let you in on my...

How to Achieve the Perfect Blow Dry

•Press visit• At the end of last week, myself, Chynna and Molly headed over to Salisbury to visit Molly’s hairdresser Paige in the Legally Blonde salon. I will admit, I had not visited Salisbury before, despite it being only around 40 minutes from me in Bournemouth, but from what I saw of the city, I would love to visit again. We arrived in torrential rain, and Paige was so welcoming,...

A Visit to the Monart Spa in Poundbury

Thinking About a New Year, New You?

•Sponsored post• I don’t know about you, but as a year draws to a close, I feel motivated to start making some changes for the year ahead. It’s not that I am unhappy with myself, as such, but there is something about a fresh start and a brand new year which makes me want to put into action some of the plans that I have been tentatively making. These are...

Autumn Self-Care Beauty Favourites

•Features gifted items• Autumn, for me, is the perfect opportunity to take a step back, recoup and take time to pamper myself. The long, cold evenings give me the chance to spend time applying fake tan, a hair mask and chilling in bed wearing a sheet mask with a candle burning. I am fortunate to be sent beauty and lifestyle products, and I wanted to share some of the self-care...

Bournemouth West Cliff Spa Day

•Gifted• I am a huge fan of a spa day, although I don’t get as much of a chance for one lately whilst juggling everything, but when I was talking to my aunt recently, she mentioned that she had never been on one. So when I was invited along to try out the spa at Bournemouth West Cliff hotel, and able to bring along a plus one, I knew it...
