I am still in love with the Jo Malone’s mini cologne set I’ve got myself as a Christmas present several years ago, which is why I always recommend getting them, as a present for yourself or a special friend.
This year the brand actually brought out two gorgeous looking collections, one with colognes, and the other one with colognes intense. It is as good as it gets, really.
Jo Malone Cologne Collection, £68/$110
- Zesty Lime Basil and Mandarin: fresh limes and zesty mandarin undercut by peppery basil and aromatic white thyme.
- Blackberry and Bay: deep, tart blackberry juice, just-gathered bay and brambly woods.
- Amber and Lavender: a subtle, spicy warm scent of petit grain, French lavender and amber.
- Peony and Blush Suede: a charming mix of peonies, red apple, jasmine, rose and gillyflower mingled with sensual blush suede.
- Wood Sage and Sea Salt: woody earthiness mixed with sage the sea.
Wood Sage and Sea Slat is the only cologne that I still don’t have, Peony and Blush Suede I’ve got for my Mum, and other threeRead More
I am getting ready for a holiday, and here is the list of the things, beauty related, that I did. I thought I’d share with you, too. And, hopefully, some of you will find it helpful.
1. Waxing appointment.
This is crucial. The last thing that you want on your holiday is to think about the unwanted hair.
Same for the manicure. I don’t want to worry about my nails not looking nice, plus I won’t have to take all the extra nail care products. More space for shopping!
3. Tint eye brows and lashes. Extensions.
If you are a person that just can’t be without makeup, even on the beach, I did a post just for you. But if you, likeRead More
It’s time for May beauty favourites! It was very hard to narrow things down but I’ve managed to, almost.
This month I was away for two weeks (one week at one place, and then another one – different one), but I always had Elemis Skin Brush (review) with me, and I’ve used it religiously. I personally use it on the dry body, brushing towards the heart. The results are amazing, but you can read all the dets in my review linked above. I have two Elemis brushes, because I just had to! And I would definitely recommend you picking one up.
I did take a picture of only ten products on purpose, so that I don’t go on and on in this post. But I just have to mention this Rouge Bunny Rouge brush, it’s my staple now.
Dior Addict 561 Baby Rose Lipstick (review and lip swatches)
Today I’ve decided to share some updates from two of my favourite brands, hair care – Kerastase and perfumery - Jo Malone. Both brands are bringing out new products soon.
Jo Malone’s new cologne – Wood Sage and Sea Salt sounds very exciting.

It was created by Christine Nagel, who often works with the brand, and the notes are: ambrette seed, sea salt, sage, red algae and grapefruit. It was inspired by the British beach, and the campaign was shoot in Northumberland by Tim Walker.

When I’ve asked for a readers’ feedback several months ago, I was actually surprised that so many of you said that you love my candle posts. Also, a lot of you asked for the links to the shops where you can get the products. So, from now on I will be posting those*
This is why I’ve decided to write a feature about my current top three candles. Here we go…
