I can’t believe that it’s July already! June was a very difficult and busy month, and I am very happy that it’s finally over!
I did not really have time or desire, to be honest, to experiment with makeup, but I did wear different lipsticks all the time. Since the drawer with my personal lip products is overflowing – I’ve made an effort to use them more often.
Besides that, makeup-wise this month was all about the red nail polish. And my current favourite one is Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polish in 85 Cerise (here). It is perfect long-lasting glossy orangey red. I promise to post the swatches soon, as I think everyone should pick up a bottle for summer.
Speaking of Max Factor, I am back to using their award-winning Masterpiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara (review). It is phenomenal, and I mean it – it gives show-stopping voluminous ultra-black lashes. Some of my girlfriends are now obsessed, too. And I will be buying a second tube soon.
I’m also back to using BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl (review). The lack ofRead More
Jo Malone just brought out three new colognes for Spring 2015 with the colourful pretty ribbons and corresponding caps: pink, purple and green.
Here is the official description:
Jo Malone Sakura Cherry Blossom

Both Jo Loves and Jo Malone brought out some new scents for Spring.
I am really loving Jo’s new brand (Jo Malone is a part of Estee Lauder group now), and this new fragrance White Rose & Lemon Leaves sounds divine. I really want to smell it…
‘Just like a piece of porcelain, there is something so delicate about holding a rose in the palm of your hand. White Rose & Lemon Leaves combines the fragility of this beautiful bloom together with the familiar scent intensity associated with rose. This fragrance represents my most treasured and memorable moments.’ Jo Malone MBE
“Perfectly balanced with subtle strands of citrus and the softest cedarwood, this fresh, elegant Norma Jean white rose has a unique depth that increases as it warms and settles on the skin.”
Fragrance Notes: White Rose Oil, Lemon Peel, Rose Absolute, Petitgrain, Honey, Amber
The price is £95 for 100ml and £45 for 30 ml
As for Jo Malone, the brand justRead More
Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm (Review) This was definitely my favourite cleanser of the year, it smells divine, feels gentle on the skin and leaves it smooth and plumped. Having a massage with it is so relaxing and pampering, a great way to finish off a busy day and have some “me” time.
One-Step Facial Cleanser with Orange Extract (review)
When I am in a rush, and don’t have time for a “proper” cleanse, which is usually in the mornings, – this is the product I reach for. I find that it works great for my dry and sensitive skin, removes the makeup and does leave the skin feeling amazing, as if I did the whole cleanse-tone routine. Did I mention the lovely scent?

I know that most of you are still burning your Christmas candles but the Spring ones area already coming out our way!
Here are two that are worth your attention, they are from the brands that are on top of their game – Jo Malone and Diptyque.
Jo Malone My Wanderlust – Cardamom & Moroccan Rose Home Candle
“The foothills of the Atlas mountains. Moroccan roses unfurl with their sumptuous honeyed spice. Glowing, aromatic cardamom. Freshened by the brightness of ginger. Chamomile, natural and earthy, accentuates voluptuous floral facets. Expansive, bright and opulent.”
This sounds dreamy. In fact,Read More
