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...

Sleep In A Box!

Sleep In A Box!

I go through phases where I suffer from terrible insomnia so I’m always eager to try out new products that promise to help you drift off to sleep. I was given this set from Sanctuary Spa after I gave birth to my daughter last September, and given that I was feeling rather run down and tired I welcomed anything that encouraged me to pamper myself. Containing mini versions of four of Sanctuary Spa’s bodycare products from their Sleep range, this Sleep-In-A-Box contains everything you need to give yourself a little bit of a treat before bedtime. There’s a helpful guide inside the lid as to how to use the products – starting with a long warm bath filled with Calming Luxury Bath Float, then exfoliating away any dry skin using Smoothing Silk Polish. After the bath you can massage Restoring Body Oil into aching muscles (even better get your partner to do this!) and finish off by hydrating skin with Comforting Night Butter. The ingredients of the products include...

SWIG Hip Flask

SWIG Hip Flask

Yes, I know, you might not want to hear the C word just yet but if you’re anything like me you’ll already be planning what gifts you’re going to buy for your friends and family this Christmas. There’s always that one person on your gift list that’s really hard to buy for – either they haven’t got any interests or hobbies or they’ve already got everything they want. So when I heard about SWIG Hip Flasks I thought this would be a perfect present! A British brand set up in North London in 2013, SWIG produce luxury hip flasks that are designed to last for generations, there’s a lovely story on the SWIG website describing the trials and tribulations of setting up the business – well worth a read! I was sent the SWIG Executive Moulded Orange Flask* from the SWIG Executive range. Of course ‘orange’ describes the pouch rather than the hip flask itself – all SWIG hip flasks are made from seamless stainless steel and have a...

Roger & Gallet – Gingembre Rouge Sorbet Body Lotion

Roger & Gallet – Gingembre Rouge Sorbet Body Lotion

I’ve got another Roger & Gallet product review for you today, it’s Sorbet Body Lotion* from the Gingembre Rouge collection. I previously reviewed the citrusy Cedrat Sorbet Body Lotion last Christmas and really liked it, so I was really looking forward to trying out this candy pink variety. The Body Lotion itself is a pearlised white cream – it’s just the bottle that is pink – but it’s actually nice that it doesn’t have any colourings added. ‘Gingembre Rouge’ translates from French as ‘red ginger’, although personally I don’t think that the fragrance is at all gingery, it’s more fruity with a sweet spicy undertone. The ingredients do include extract of Ginger Root though, plus nourishing Aloe Vera and Pomegranate Oil which is probably where the fruitiness comes from. The Sorbet Body Lotion feels light and refreshing on the skin, perfect for the warmer Summer months, and the tiny pearl flecks within the lotion leave a radiance on the surface of the skin. To build up the fragrance you...

Ted Baker – W Eau De Toilette Gift Set

Ted Baker – W Eau De Toilette Gift Set

It’s such a shame that we’ve already had Mothers Day here in the UK, because this Ted Baker W Eau de Toilette Gift Set would make THE perfect gift for mum. Nestled inside the pretty pink gift box is a 30ml bottle of Ted Baker W Eau de Toilette, plus a matching Body Wash and Body Lotion. The rose and dragonfly design on the box, and the front of the two tubes, is really pretty and Summery. What’s more it’s super affordable, at less than £13 for the full set! I hadn’t tried any of Ted Baker’s fragrances before I tried W and I really love it. It’s quite strong at first, it reminds me a bit of a 1980s type of perfume where you got a huge hit of scent as soon as you sprayed it. I would describe it as quite a ‘green’ fragrance, notes include Lily Of The Valley, Bergamot and Vetiver, but there are a lot of floral notes in there too such as Freesia...

Perfume Of The Day – L’Occitane Cerisier Rouge

Perfume Of The Day – L’Occitane Cerisier Rouge

I got this L’Occitane Cerisier Rouge Eau Intense for Christmas and I’m so in love with it! I first spritzed it in their York shop in December, and then dropped enough hints to my husband that he bought me it. Cerisier Rouge translates as ‘Red Cherry’ and it’s a beautiful sweet fragrance – as well as the scent of cherry it’s got hints of lemon, orange, blackcurrant, raspberry and Lily Of The Valley. It’s not too fruity though, the floral edge really does come through, and it is supposed to replicate the ‘changing beauty of cherry blossom announcing the arrival of Summer days’. It’s my absolute favourite scent at the moment, I wear it every day. It’s so uplifting and fresh – probably more of a Spring/Summer scent than an Autumn/Winter one. It lasts all day, after a few hours the top notes start to disappear and it reduces down to a warming, fruity fragrance. I was also lucky enough to receive a great free gift with my perfume. L’Occitane...

Stila – Glow & Behold Makeup Set

Stila – Glow & Behold Makeup Set

Just a quick review today, to tell you about the new Stila Glow & Behold Makeup Set that I’ve recently purchased. Stila have joined forces with cult US jewellery designer BaubleBar to create some stylish and great value Christmas cosmetic collections. The Glow & Behold Makeup Set is priced at just £20 but would have a £62 value if the items were purchased separately. I think this is a great way of treating yourself to a few Stila make-up products and not breaking the bank. The Stila Glow & Behold Makeup Set contains: Rhinestone headband from BaubleBar Stila Lip Glaze in Gleam – lip gloss pen in a shimmery nude Stila Convertible Color in Magnolia – lip & cheek cream palette in a warm browny red Sila Smudge Stick in Lionfish – long lasting, waterproof, shimmery eye pencil in a dark brown I’m most excited about trying the Stila Lip Glaze pen, I’ve wanted to try one of these for the longest time! I’m not sure I’ll get much...
