YUM! Booty Butter Tanning Lotion by Bikini Kitchen

So, yesterday was not the sunniest summer day in old London town. Luckily, I had a fantastic bottle of Booty Butter Tanning Lotion by Bikini Kitchen on hand to make it look like I'd had a fabulous weekend in the sun!

The smell of this potion is absolutely divine! Chocolaty and delicious with none of that stinky chemically taste we are all too accustomed to. Booty Butter Tanning Lotion is a delectable 100% mix of all-natural ingredients from the islands of Hawaii which combine to accelerate tanning
while keeping the skin moisturised.

Here are the astonishing benefits to boot:

-Kukui Nut Oil accelerates tanning, helping draw sunlight into the skin.
-Kona coffee extract comes from the Kona coffee plant which is renowned for its ability to mend broken skin, soothe irritation and revitalize cells.
-Macadamia Nut Oil and Aloe Vera blend together, keeping the skin moisturized.
-Antioxidant Vitamins A, E & C. Vitamin A helps to form new blood vessels which give the skin an attractive rosy glow.
-Vitamin C fends against damage caused by the sun.
-Vitamin E protects the epidermis from early stages of ultraviolet light damage and reduces the severity of sunburn.
-Bug-repellent quality keeps insects away.
-Water-resistant which helps to prevent wasteful reapplications.

What more could a girl ask for this summer! I am glowing with health, no orange streaks in sight.

Ooh, and did I mention the cute packaging! This stuff is a god send and got my boyfriend's approval as well!

Morrocan Oil, Thank You For Saving My Summer Hair!

After days in the Greek sun and sea, I felt super healthy in body and mind, but sadly my hair was an absolute MESS! I am not one to overly fuss, but I couldn't get my brush through my normally very straight blonde hair. Oh dear, oh dear indeed.

Luckily, my friend had wonderous MOROCCAN OIL with her. The difference was immediate and nothing less than incredible! The smell is delightful and the feeling of my hair was so silky it felt as if I had been deep conditioning for a week! I couldn't recommend these products more highly.

If offers AND delivers:

* Softens thick unmanageable hair
* Restores shine and softness to dull, limp hair
* Strengthens brittle hair
* Promotes healing and provides nourishment to hair damaged by coloring and styling
* Creates an optimal balance for the hair and scalp
* Nourishes the scalp (alleviates itchy, dry scalp)
* Protects against UV damage and other environmental factors
* Reduces drying time and speeds up styling time

Definitely a product to remember for your beach bag.

Ever wondered why Gwyneth Paltrow always looks so gorgeous...?

Well, sadly it looks like the answer is good old fashioned hard work! But, that also means that the rest of us have a chance to look just as wonderful, too! Woo!

The Elemental Herbology God-Send

While feeling a little under the weather a few days back, I decided that my skin needed a treat in hopes that the rest of my body might follow. I booked myself in for an ELEMENTAL FACIAL at my favourite of Locations, Space NK. It was an hour and fifteen minutes of sheer bliss! I have always loved using ELEMENTAL HERBOLOGY products at home, so this was familiar yet that much more indulgent.


The BEST London pedicure!

Hello my lovelies,

As the weather is finally quite steamy here in London, so my feet have been out on display. I ma ashamed to say that they are not adorned with a lovely toe polish. This makes me very sad when I look at the lovely ladies of London with the twinkliest of toes.

Where offers the best pedicure in London, pray tell? Tips will be gladly received and a recommendation offered for the others struggling to find the ultimate tootsie pampering treat of the season!

Sunday Delights!

I absolutely love Sunday morning brunch in London. It's always such a treat to meet up with the ladies for an indulgent meal consisting of fancy pastries and pots of tea, complete with tea cosies... and maybe even a warming hot chocolate.
My friend Amy just introduced me to a new favourite, the near perfect ALBION CAFE Oh the joy upon walking in to find stacks of fresh pastries and wonderful packaged goods fit for a queen.
Roll on next Sunday!

Caravan, One Gorgeous Shop

My friend took me along to Caravan in Shoreditch over the weekend and I was utterly entranced. Everything was just magical, little duck is a case in point! This is the best birthday pressie shop I have found in ages. The online boutique is quite small, so it's definitely worth a visit in person.
