My Current Skincare Schedule

Now winter has fully taken hold in the UK (I thought it already had but apparently it gets colder, thanks London!) my skin has completely dried out and is crying for some much needed hydration.  That means I need to swap around my products in order to meet my skin's needs during these bitter winter months.

Face Wipes

Face wipes are probably not the best thing for dry skin as I find they tend to strip the skin of it's natural oils as well as dirt and makeup.  However, they are so quick and easy that I can't help but have them in my cabinet.  The ones I'm currently using are YesTo Grapefruit which are meant to be hydrating.

Cleansing Oil

After the wipes I go in with the oil to hydrate the skin a bit more and remove any stubborn bits of makeup.  I currently using The Body Shop Camomile Oil which is great because it comes with a pump and has lasted ages.


You might think you don't want to exfoliate during the winter as it seems a bit harsh but 2-3 times per week is good for the skin as it gets rid of all the dry dead bits and leaves it soft and smooth again.  Just remember to use a good moisturiser after.  I still love my St Ives exfoliator.


I'm obsessed with moisturising my skin, especially during winter.  In fact, I'd rather wear no makeup and just moisturiser most days!  The one I'm currently using for winter is First Aid Beauty Intense Hydration.

Facial Oil

I hated facial oils when they first became popular and didn't like how they felt on my skin.  Nowadays they're probably my favourite skincare product.  My current favourite is the Josie Maran 100% argan oil.

Can you recommend any winter saviors to me?

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
