Father's Day Gifting with Plowden & Fallow

With Father's Day approaching really soon, I wanted to introduce you to some unique fragrances by Plowden & Fallow.  I reviewed the Ophrys EDP* a few months ago and I was really impressed with the lasting power, quality and packaging of the fragrance, so I thought... what better gift for Father's Day than beautiful artisan fragrance! I chose the Debonaire EDT and The Plowden & Fallow Fragrance Sample Set to recommend to you and if you're looking for a unique and luxurious fragrance gift, these will be perfect!

I am a huge fan of Elizabeth Scarlett designs and I adore the quality of the pieces and the attention to detail. There is something really special about the brand and the unique products. I own a few of the Everyday Pouches and some other pieces and I recommend the brand to everyone, but I had to write up a blog post about the latest Elizabeth Scarlett Wedding and Bridal Collection. The pieces are absolutely stunning and would make the perfect bride and bridesmaid gifts and I just cannot get enough of the beautiful embroidery!

My bedtime essentials

My bedside table isn't super organised at the moment and I am still looking for new lamps to go with my bedroom decor, but I thought I should share a few of my bedtime essentials anyway, with some recommendations for dry skin and my secret anti-anxiety weapons  :)

Plowden & Fallow Ophrys EDP review

As a huge fan of unisex fragrances, I was really excited to be introduced to the world of Plowden & Fallow! The home to one of Britain’s newer contemporary fragrance houses, located on the Plowden Estate in Shropshire, England. Plowden & Fallow offer high quality artisan luxury fragrances, shaving products and accessories for those who seek something more unique than your everyday department store brands. Inspired by great British traditions, folklore and eccentricity, the brand is the perfect choice for anyone who loves quintessentially British fragranced products with a modern twist. I was kindly sent a selection of fragrance samples to choose from and I was so impressed with every single one, I found it very hard to make a decision. But... I eventually settled on the beautiful Ophrys EDP* (£88.00) and I absolutely adore it. It is so unique!

It's so nice to be back to blogging properly, and what better way to get my inner beauty blogger going than a fragrance review. YAY! I recently popped into Frasers Glasgow to try the new I Want Choo EDP by Jimmy Choo*, as they had the JC Golden Chair set up at the iconic spot on the staircase and it was love at first sight. The bottle, the luxurious feel, the scent itself. Stunning! I was kindly gifted some Jimmy Choo goodies and let me tell you... what a lovely surprise! If you're looking for a new fragrance to try, you have to give I Want Choo a go. I got so many compliments on it already. Keep reading to find out more.

Pixi Beauty Liquid Lip

It is no secret, that Pixi Beauty is one of my favourite makeup brands of all time. I adore their skincare too, but their MatteLast Liquid Lip* (£16.00) is my everyday beauty essential and I cannot live without the nude shades! I must go through at least 4 of the Pixi nudes per year, easily. I use these multiple times a day, so they will last you a long time, don't worry. Anyway... Let's dive into the formula.

Cat Eye Liner Makeup Look with Gold Glitter Cut Crease

I got so many questions about this makeup look in my Instagram DM's, so I decided to do a quick blog post with links to the products I used to create the base and eye makeup. I am not sure if all of these are available, but I will list alternatives if they're not.

AD: Tips & tricks for easy false lash application

AD: This post is in conjunction with Boots UK but all thoughts are my own

I’m a huge fan of false lashes and if you remember the old days of blogging, you will know that the Ardell Wispies have a cult status in the world of beauty. With so many options on the market, it can be hard to choose the right lashes, but after testing hundreds of pairs, I know exactly what I like and how to make the application as easy  as possible. Here are my tips tips and tricks, using some of my favourite lashes by Ardell.

Giorgio Armani brow products.

I've been meaning to write about some of the Giorgio Armani eyebrow products for ages, but I never really got round to it till now. I received this selection and I was really confused about the bright red to be honest, but I actually used it on my lips and it worked a treat. The other products are much more suited to eyes and brows though, so I didn't have a problem trying them out. In fact - I found my new favourite eyebrow pencil and angled brush. Yay!

Brand focus: Typology Paris

(AD/gifted) This post contains gifted products and affiliate links

Skincare has always been a huge part of my blog (and my daily routine) and I have tried hundreds (or thousands) of products over the years and  it became very rare for a brand to catch my eye and get me intrigued, but... Typology managed to make me excited to write about skincare again. Yay! 

I have been using Typology products for a long time and I mention them on Instagram quite a lot, so you are probably familiar with the name and aesthetic. I adore their ethos, packaging and formulas. I was recently sent a few more bits to try, so I thought it was about time to finally share my thoughts on the blog.
