- Beauty & Fashion
If you have someone to buy for and you are not quite sure what beauty regime they have, or whether they have a favourite brand. A great option is grab a kit that has small versions, so they can test it and then buy the larger products. Pure Beauty have this “Dermalogica favourites kit” which is perfect for trialling. Read below for my recommended daily regime…
I wish I had these cool fashion options open to me when I was younger. Not that I dressed myself at 5 years old! I discovered shops that I didn’t even realise sold childrenswear this month. I had fun choosing funky Autumn childrenswear items for the little ones and styling them up over half term. The children loved it too.
We live in a world where fashion trends are thrown in our faces constantly. Glossy magazines dictate what you should and shouldn’t wear with each coming season, and the ease of celebrities’ interaction with the public through social media sees followers attempting to imitate the look of their favorite models, musicians, actors, and socialites. It’s not all too surprising that sometimes we find it difficult to keep up. As soon as we purchase one fashion staple, the fad seems to have passed, and the item is cast aside as we chase the latest trend. But this doesn’t have to be the case. Why follow the crowd when you could have your own distinct, standout style? Perhaps Ralph Lauren put it best when he once said: “fashion is transient, trends come and go. I believe in style, not fashion”. Here’s everything you need to know about curating your own, individual style rather than relying on trends that come and go in what often feels like minutes.
What’s in a look? If in doubt, ask a celebrity. If beauty and looking the business are your stock in trade which fills your personal coffers to the brim, then facial acupuncture has understandably become the treatment of choice for the celebrity class, from actors to models to musicians.
The existence of fashion trends date back hundreds of years. They signified to show how much extra money and leisure time you had. They signified your level in society, suggested your connection to royal families, that sort of thing. It would begin with whatever the reigning party, king or queen, liked – and the faster you caught on and followed suit, the better it indicated you were to observant of their tastes.
To say I felt like a princess in my sparkly sequin dress from Quiz Clothing, is an understatement. I have never had an occasion where I could choose from an array of going out dresses, until earlier in July when I attended an awards ceremony. I felt like a million dollars! It’s amazing how your mood changes your whole appearance too, I was beaming from ear to ear.
You may recall last Summer I had a little rave about a new website I came across: Love the Sales. The site that lists fashion items, that are just in the sale! Well, I wanted to give you a little update because I think it's brilliant and you could grab yourself a bargain before the Summer holidays arrive – find your maxi dresses and a spare pair of shorts for the kids!
Your skin is one of the most important parts of your body. Without it, your body wouldn’t be able to protect it’s more sensitive parts from the world around it.

To help you with this, this post will be going through some of the best ways to care for your skin, while also making it look great.
Let’s face it; no parent is as bothered about their fashion choices as they were pre-parenthood. Nonetheless, there’s no doubt that looking great still makes us feel great. That should be more than enough incentive for any mom to freshen up her look this summer. Still, those decisions are only worthwhile if they retain a sense of practicality.
