Is this the most beautiful tablet case ever?

Is this the most beautiful tablet case ever?

As a beauty blogger I’m never far away from my iPad – drafting posts, researching products, reading other blogs, online shopping. You name it, my iPad helps me do it! Getting so much use means my trusty companion needs a good case so it’s protected from spills, drops and being sat on by cats. This stunning Saffiano Zip Gold Tablet Case from Filofax does just the trick. You’ve heard of Filofax right? Are you thinking 1990s suited city workers carrying round a lofty and rather overstuffed organiser? Well think again, Filofax now offers a range of smart and stylish tablet cases, portfolios, notebooks and bags. I’m so in love with it, the Saffiano Zip Gold Tablet Case has loads of cool hidden features. The tablet clicks into the hard plastic holder that is attached in the lower half of the case, and then it can swivel 360 degrees so you can have the iPad flat on the desk in front of you, or swivel it and then turn the case...

Merry Christmas from Beauty Best Friend!

Merry Christmas from Beauty Best Friend!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of my readers and to wish you all a big Merry Christmas! I know I’m a few days early but I’m taking a couple of weeks break from blogging over the festive period. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in September, and whilst motherhood has actually been easier (so far!) than I expected it to be I still need a bit of time to recharge my batteries. Plus, I want to completely immerse myself in her first Christmas and spend lots of time with family and friends without having to think about where my next blog post is coming from! 2015 has been a very special year for me – I’ve become a mummy and my blog is becoming more and more popular. I hope that 2016 will be just as good! I’ll be back in the New Year with lots of new blog posts, product reviews and useful beauty tips. Until then, have a very Merry...

Christmas treats from Roger & Gallet

Christmas treats from Roger & Gallet

Well, it’s December so we’re officially allowed to think about Christmas! And when we think about Christmas we have to talk about one of the brands that does gifts so well – Roger & Gallet. I’ve reviewed several of their products in the past, in particular their fragrances and hand creams, and they all make perfect gifts as their packaging is so beautiful. Today I’m reviewing two items from the Bois d’Orange fragrance collection: Bois d’Orange Eau Fraiche Parfumee* – I’d expected this Fragrant Water to smell really fruity and orangey but it doesn’t. The scent is supposed to encompass the leaves, flowers and wood of the orange tree as well as the fruit, so it’s more woody and musky than just an orange fragrance. I think it smells quite classic and traditional. The scent is quite light as this is a fragrant water rather than a perfume, and it’s unisex so suitable for both men and women. The smooth glass bottle with its yellow and gold label doesn’t...

The Body Shop Christmas Blog Event

The Body Shop Christmas Blog Event

A week last Friday I was lucky enough to attend The Body Shop Christmas Blogger Event at my local store in Coppergate, York. There are few brands do Christmas as full-on as The Body Shop and their festive fragrances are amazing so I was looking forward to getting into the Christmas spirit and trying out some new products. We were welcomed into the store with a glass of bubbly and a festive cupcake, then the Store Manager started off by giving us a quick overview of how the evening would run and then told us about this year’s three Christmas fragrances – Frosted Plum, Frosted Cranberry and Glazed Apple. We were then split into two groups and given a tour of the latest new products from The Body Shop. The first range we looked at was the new Oils Of Life, I already reviewed these skincare products here when they launched. Next up we got to try out some of the new Christmas make-up. I think people often forget that The Body Shop...

The Body Shop Christmas 2015 Collection

I love The Body Shop® at Christmas as they have such amazing products and this year is no exception. I was lucky enough to be sent a selection of new products to try out, and I can honestly say that I love each and every one!
