Paul & Joe Blue Horizon Collection

Paul & Joe Blue Horizon CollectionI have spent the weekend trying to imagine that I’m somewhere far hotter and dryer than I actually am. Spritzing myself with l’Occitane’s ‘Calanques’ fragrance (last year’s but I treasure it as it smells like the beach) and wallowing in a bath that was 80% dead sea salts and 20% water.

(Whilst on the subject of baths; the most terribly scary thing happened to me. There I was in my huge bath with opaque water (due to salts and various other unguents I had tipped in) and something started touching my feet. I couldn’t move – I was paralysed with fear! It moved up my leg, gently gently, and then as it got near my you-know-what, I thought “I’m jolly well not having this!” and I grabbed the ghoulish ‘thing’…which turned out to be an exfoliating glove.)

Paul & Joe’s Blue Horizon collection is so beachy and summery that it had to be a part of my weekend. I had everything blue; blue nail polish (shade 015, a sparkly pale blue that’s not dead looking on the slightest), blue lip-gloss (made my teeth look whiter and didn’t turn my lips a ghastly shade as I expected it to!) and blue body gel. The body gel is great – light, cooling and very fragranced. If you were on hols, you could use this as an aftersun and skip the heavy perfume for the evening!

Paul & Joe Blue Horizon Collection Because they’re so beautifully presented, any of the Paul & Joe products would be great as gifts – the boxes prettier than any wrapping paper you can buy! Talking of gifts, you have been on over to my newly launched luxury gift guide, haven’t you? NO? What are you waiting for? KEEP CALM AND SHOP!

    I’ve been’lurking’ on your website for a while, reading all the blog posts daily etc and I felt I HAD to post a comment today because your bath story literally had me ‘laughing out loud’ for 10 minutes. “I’m jolly well not having this” – side-splitting.

    Thanks for perking up my (otherwise) dull morning (s)! x

    LOL I agree with Emily. It’s not easy to make me laugh, but I actually was not expecting the glove. Neither you…ahah

    Hahaha! That’s fantastic.

    Your writing is genius!

    I seriously didn’t think anyone could do blue lipgloss since Spice Girls!
    Those bottles look sooo beautiful!

    Blue lipgloss you say? I once had a very marvellous on-the-side-of-blue pinky one from Benefit and can confirm the teeth whitening and generally flattering properties of a blue-tinted mouth. P&J has such fab packaging.

    Oh I just looooove Paul&Joe, the colours are so delicate and subtle yet effective! I wouldn’t be in the mood for a cooling body-gel atm though – it’s really cold enough as it is.

    And that story was downright scary, haha. I live near the forest so I run the risk of strage giant insects creeping in every time I open a window – so the fear of being jumped by some… thing is very real to me.
