Aromatherapy Associates: Portable Relaxation

sleep aid beauty relax aromatherapy

The launch of Aromatherapy Associates’ Deep Relax Balm is great news for me; I’ve often wished that I could enjoy the benefits of the Deep Relax oil blend without having to actually get into the bath or shower. It’s not always convenient to just hop into the tub when you need to de-stress (although I can’t recommend it highly enough, especially if you’re using ... Read More »

Overnight Cellulite Treatments

biotherm cellulite cream

I have been meaning to mention this for a while: be careful when using regular cellulite creams last thing at night. I find that they really keep me awake and then I sleep badly! It took me ages to realise that it’s probably the masses of caffeine that’s packed into many of the formulas. You wouldn’t have thought that topically ... Read More »

Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk

Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk

 Posh gift alert: anything that comes with a wooden honey utensil is posh in my books. A nice added touch! I think that the Almond Coconut Milk range is marvellous – not too ‘totally tropical taste’ as some coconut fragrances can be.

I have taken a quick snapshot of the vanity case with a paperback inside the lid (weirdly!) ... Read More »

Thierry Mugler Angel Body Cream

Thierry Mugler Angel Body Cream

 Slightly surprising discovery of the week: Thierry Mugler’s Angel Body Cream. I’m actually surprised that I like Angel full-stop, because it’s nothing like the fragrances that I normally wear, but I’m even more taken aback by my love for this hulking great pot of body cream. It is HUGE! The box looks as though a small family car is going to ... Read More »

I made a gorgeous Italian stew with aubergine, courgette, pepper, red onion and chopped tomatoes. All ... Read More »

Mood-Changing Shower Gels

                                                                                                                                                                             Two shower gels have changed my mood over the summer holidays; the first, a grapefruit body wash from Love+Art, has made me feel happy and energised in the mornings. The second, ‘Moody Cow’ by Cowshed, actually helped relieve quite a heavy bout of anxiety! Love+Art’s body wash contains 100% organic essential oils – and if you haven’t heard of ... Read More »
