Travel Wishlist: 5 Dreamy European Beach Holidays

I need a holiday. I am sure most of you are nodding away or saying "YES, please" at this stage. With the weather being so nice here in England, as much as I am thankful for local Vitamin D, it's nice to have a little change of scenery. If you're not prepared to travel too far or if you're not sure where to go for a blissful beach getaway this summer, here is my travel guide to 5 stunning destinations in 5 different countries you will enjoy to the max. Pack your suitcases, don't forget the sunscreen and your passport... and we're off!

The Body Shop New Expert Facial Masks & Why You Need To Try Them

The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask and Amazonian Acai Energising Radiance Mask Review
There are two simple facts about me that never change when it comes to skincare. 1 - I like to experiment and 2 - I'm not that easily swayed to hop on the bandwagon as soon as something new comes out. To be frank, my "experiments" end up being quite disappointing from time to time. But never with The Body Shop. That's why, when they launched a new range of masks, my inner "hold your horses" voice tried to stop me (but failed - yay!). So on my birthday I made it a little mission to pop into my local The Body Shop, use my birthday discount (£5 off) and put these masks to test to see if they are really hype-worthy. Here's how it went down.

How To Brighten Up Someone's Day Ft. Molton Brown The Orange & Bergamot Hand Collection

Molton Brown Orange & Bergamot Hand Collection
For a few days I was toying with the idea for this post. Something didn't sound / feel right. The concept of putting together a "How To Brighten Up Your Day" advice article seemed great and, don't get me wrong, I am all for practicing self-care. At the same time, I knew it needed tweaking. Plot twist came in the simplest form - change "your" to "someone's". Ta-da! Without a shadow of a doubt, it's (always!) essential to look after yourself. By doing so you will be able to take care of those you love better. But let me ask you this: doesn't it make you feel on-top-of-the-world-happy when you do what might seem like a teeny-tiny little thing which, as a result, brightens up someone's day in a huge way? That's why when my very-much-loved brand Molton Brown sent me this beautiful Orange & Bergamot Hand Collection*, not only did it make my day but I also knew I would put it to good use by writing a post which would, hopefully, help you to help others.

April Favourites | 2017 & Birthday Giveaway

April Favourites
Don't even get me started on how in the world it's already May. I may be biased (because I am a "May baby") but it is one of my favourite months of the year. It's that "transition" time between spring and summer when the winter is 100% behind us and everything is bright, blossoming and greener than ever (am I the only person who goes on repeat about how green everything is?). On a different note, I decided to look back at my April Favourites from twenty 06 and saw the history repeat itself. March Favourites never happened last year and they got "skipped" this year too. Maybe March is just not the best blogging month (for me). I have no idea. Also, these involuntary breaks I had to take got me down big time because it's never my intention to put something I love and enjoy so much on the backseat. So here is where May makes an entrance and, ultimately, every tiny and big issue gets sorted out. Including my content schedule which is, by the way, looking smashing! Coming back with a bang celebrating my birthday with a lovely giveaway attached to this post. Enjoy!
