Paris: Magical Dinner on Ice!

dior overcurl mascara review

Last week I went to Paris for the launch of Dior’s new mono eyeshadows and Iconic Overcurl mascara. I have the mascara on right now, and it is fabulous. After you’ve read what’s to come on this page I would completely forgive you for thinking that I was slightly biased in my opinion, but you’ll just have to trust me. I’ll do a … Read More

Extra Leg Room – Flight Heaven

exit aisle seats

There’s nothing like having a bit of leg room when you fly long-haul. Being able to stretch your feet out all the way in front of you has to be one of the most amazing travel luxuries and unfortunately also one of the rarest. It’s a perk usually reserved for those in First or Business class cabins – your full-stretch space gets … Read More

A Model Recommends Travel Gadgets

Slightly random post and I’m sorry for that, but I saw an offer on those Creative EP-630 earphones that I was banging on about in the summer. Do you remember the Apple Earphones rant session? I’ve spoken before about my hatred of background noise when I’m trying to work, read, or simply have a quiet train journey – my hugest, hugest bugbear … Read More

Spa Review and Mini Giveaway: Les Sources de Caudalie

ruth crilly beauty blog

Last month I visited the beautiful Caudalie spa in Bordeaux – Les Sources de Caudalie. It’s surrounded on all sides by gorgeous vineyards and looks for all the world like a little medieval hamlet – although it’s only just over ten years old, it has been built using reclaimed materials and it really does “blend” with the surroundings. It’s the … Read More

Air New Zealand: 30 Years of Flying London to LA

Will you just look at what was in one of the parcels I picked up last week? This has to be the best press pack ever! To celebrate thirty years of flying between London and Los Angeles, Air New Zealand sent me this brilliant retro bag filled with goodies from 1982.

More Figs! Diptyque’s “Collection Voyage”

Diptyque Philosykos "Collection Voyage"

A new “Fig-Scented” thing to add to the “Fig-Scented Things” category: the Philosykos range from beautiful luxury fragrance brand Diptyque. Most famous, perhaps, for their gorgeous candles and room sprays, Diptyque also have quite a broad range of scents and body products. I had no idea that Diptyque made body products! Anyway, it was a pleasant surprise to visit the store in Mayfair and discover … Read More
