I was lucky enough to be invited to attend a Jo Malone London English Fields launch event last weekend and after the amazing time I had last Autumn I just could not resist seeing what new fragrances would be on offer. This event was all about the new limited edition English Fields range, which consists of 5 new scents. As usual for Jo Malone, this can also be paired with another scent to create something beautiful and bespoke.
When the lovely guys over at Paperless Post got in touch asking if I’d like to try out and write up a review of my experiences using their services, I just couldn’t resist. As a company they were already known to me, as I’ve lusted over their gorgeous designs many a time, but never quite got around to trying it out, so it presented itself as the perfect opportunity!
I know, I know, MORE pancakes… but there’s no such thing as too many pancakes right? Anyway, this year the greatest holiday/celebration (Pancake Day/Shrove Tuesday) falls the day before Valentines so I thought it’d be rude not to combine the two somehow as what could possible show true love more?
Pancake day is fast approaching so for me right now, they’re the only thing on my mind, but no matter what day or week of the year it is, let’s be honest, it just doesn’t get much better. Recently I’ve been looking at different toppings to try with the fluffy American kind of pancake and saw a few with yoghurt on… this really intrigued me and once I gave it a go I couldn’t believed I’d never tried it before! What I love about the yoghurt and fruit is the really fresh taste it gives the pancakes, perfect for when the weather is a bit warmer or you don’t want anything too heavy.
Brows are BIG business nowadays and I realised I still haven’t done a review of one of my favourite brow products. As you probably know, Benefit have a great range of brow products but KA-BROW! is easily my absolute favourite, so I basically just wanted to sing its praises a little bit. It’s an eyebrow cream-gel thats allows you to fill and style your brows and most importantly build up the drama. It also comes in the prettiest little pot with its own eyebrow brush.
I just love the fuller brow this gives me, especially when using after I’ve recently had my eyebrows tinted. Naturally, mine are super light, but the discovery of a bolder, darker brow in recent years has got to be the biggest game changer in how I feel and look.
Christmas is practically upon us, but in case you do have a few hours spare over the weekend, I have a perfectly easy Christmas bake for you! I was inspired by a bake from Little Sunny Kitchen and although my cheery snowmen are by no means perfect, they nonetheless tasted great and brought a smile to lots of faces! It’s perfect to do with small children, as the recipe is simple and not too time consuming and I’m sure they could be brought even more to life with some hats or scarves to keep them warm! Already looking forward to giving these another go so I’ve included all the recipe details below!
I always love trying out new brands, especially those from the U.K. so was super excited when Wonderland Makeup got in touch about reviewing a selection of their products. They sent me through a primer, eyeshadow and nail varnish, which I’ve been testing out over the last few weeks.
