I’m walking on air! I’ve just been to The Chelsea Day Spa and feel amazing!
A treatment here is a full on experience that revitalises you - mind, body and soul – and makes you feel ready for anything.
I went to the The Chelsea Day Spa Boutique on Hollywood Road in Chelsea, just off Fulham Road. Spring is the perfect time for a good facial and they have an extensive menu.
It’s a really gorgeous and serene place. With elegant neutral paint on the walls, the scent of aromatic oils in the air, lime or orange water on offer and chilled piano music playing – this oasis of calm was already relaxing me.
As I lay down on a heated raised bed, Sugar my therapist placed a satin blanket over me and analysed my skin. With so many wonderful treatments on offer, I was keen to try the facial that I had been hearing so much about. HydroPeptide Infusion Facial is a major new innovation in anti aging skincare and was perfect for me.
It’s Hollywood in an hour – and more. Peptides are BIG news in the beauty world because they get serious results. They help skin look younger and work better. Peptides are the building blocks of collagen and your skin. They actually strengthen and help your skin restore itself!
The treatment combines a very deep cleanse – a fresh zesty gel, followed by the Anti Wrinkle Exfoliating Cleanser and Brightening Toner, Polishing Crystals – almost better than microdermabrasion but more gentle - with the Plumping Activator applied on top. More Brightening Toner, the Anti Wrinkle Stem Cell Regenerating Serum and then the Ultra Rich Concentrate and Skin Firming Hydrator was massaged in firm stokes, it felt fantastic.
My pressure points were then massaged – temples, ears, in between my eyes, nose, cheekbones before warm flannels placed over my eyes. The Instant Peptide Miracle Mask was applied. It all felt amazing and was followed up with the incredible Anti Wrinkle Repair and Prevent Treatment and Skin Brightening Concentrate
The whole range smells great – fresh lime and coconut. It suits every skin type and is the the ideal treatment before a Wedding or party as you literally look wonderful straight after. I’m going to book another before my best friends wedding in September, you look a million dollars afterwards.
The benefits last and the products keep working on your skin for a few days after. It’s the perfect pick me up for tired skin and a course of treatments would see you having Supermodel skin pronto. You can also continue the good work at home with products from the range to take home.

I have long been a fan of the gorgeous LUSH. Looking for amazing handmade products that are good for you and smell incredible? So fresh you can FEEL it? Lush has it all. Made with little or no preservative or packaging, using only vegetarian ingredients and they tell you when they were made! I love the fact my new body lotion was made by Ben – this month! Being a big fan I tested out some must have favourites along with some new additions that are just brilliant….
Dream Cream (£10.95) ’Our Number One Product’ says Lush. We say – SPOT ON! This gorgeous velvety body cream smooths on beautifully, feels instantly nourishing and comforting – and it absorbs quickly. Its the oat milk in this cream that is heaven sent. Also made with rose water, rose absolute, cocoa butter , chamomile blue , tea tree and olive oil, its been known to cure a whole host of skin problems like eczema, as well as being the go-to cream for daily beautifying. The scent isn’t over powering so it won’t interfere with your perfume. Its Lush’s serious best seller and we know why. Serious smoother soother – essential!
Buffy Body Butter (£5.95) It’s a full on skin softening experience. The bar is just the right size for holding in your palm as you rub it over wet skin in circular motions. The exfoliating beads work straight away – and the incredible scent of lemon and cocoa butter is released- getting you in the holiday mood. As soon as I washed off, my skin felt like silk – and shimmered! Perfect to buff your bod before your holiday or for a regular treat. Gorgeous.
Stepping Stone Foot-Scrub (£2.95) Smells great! This adorable foot shaped scrub and soak in one, made my bathroom lemon scented for days. Rub over tired tootsies in a hot bath. The pumice and jojoba oil polished my feet while dissolving into a pool of aqua cool all around me – beautiful.
Emotional Brilliance This is a genius idea – choose your make up – depending on your MOOD…..
Spin the Emotional Brilliance Colour Wheel – in store or online - to get your personalised colour reading. Select 3 colours that ‘feel right’ and this will reveal more about your state of mind. Like tarot cards for your cosmetics, choose your mood – and get gorgeous….
Bubbly (Pink) & Vibrance (Orange) Liquid Lipsticks (£14.50) These were brilliant! Stained like a lip tint. Shined like a gloss. Great texture. Perfect for slicking on for lasting colour without lipsticks usual fade out issues. The patent contains an incredible skin softening formula that improves the condition of your lips. Made with jojoba and rose. Line your lips with the tip of the sponge and fill in – and for subtle look – blot.
Bubbly was my favourite - a gorgeous rose pink really brought out my green eyes while orange Vibrance was lovely – a shimmer shot of sunshine for the lips. Ideal size too for popping in your handbag and glossing on the go. They also double up as a cream blush.
Eyes Bright Mascara (£12)This was a very impressive product, small but really packs a powerful punch. I had strong dramatic lashes within moments, the colour was intense too. Wheatgrass is the magic ingredient which promises irritation free flutters. The gentle formula contains only 1 preservative rather than the usual 4-6 in most others mascaras which makes it pretty special. Plus it contains vitamins that actually condition and nourish your lashes. – sold! It was the perfect size to slip into a small handbag for an evening out.
Healthy – Green liquid liner (£14.50) I usually go for coloured liners that shimmer and only use liquid when I’m creating cat eyes and wanting a smoky intense look at night. I had never really thought about using a more matte green but this fresh grass coloured liquid liner took me by surprise – I tried it and found it really lovely, versatile and wearable. I combined the liner with the rose pink Bubbly lips and had an instantly brighter look that took me from afternoon meeting to drinks with friends. The green actually matched my eyes and gave me subtle but enhanced look. It was the perfect fresh Spring feel. In the daylight it just looked pretty and as I wore it into the evening the colour blended and faded to a slinky green grey. Made with Damask Rose. A lovely consistency doesn’t set straight away so you can blend and perfect.
Lifted - Yellow Cream Eyeshadow (£14.50) This yellow eye brightener lifted my spirits on a less than bright Spring day. You can use alone, as a shadow, a highlighter or under another colour to really open up the eye. Made with amazing cupuaçu butter, almond and jojoba – its good for your skin too.
Go and spin that wheel! Great colours, so much variety and such a cool idea. I love the labels attached to the little bottles! They give the whole range a cute apothecary feel, which just adds to Lush’s authenticity. They make gorgeous products, naturally.

Gatsby chic is almost here…….“There was music from my neighbor’s house through those summer nights,” F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote. “In his enchanted gardens, men and girls came and went like moths, among the whispering and the champagne and the stars.”
Baz Lurhman’s movie The Great Gatsby is on general release in the States right now – coming to the UK next week on 16th May.
The fashion influence has been a long time coming – the first hints of flapper chic were visible on the runway during New York Fashion Week in 2011 and the fashion world has been paying homage to the roaring 20′s ever since. It was such an opulent time, the cocktails, the beading, the sequins, the glamour - so enjoy it all! 20′s fashion has even influenced the current major metallic trend!
The Great Gatsby costume designer Catherine Martin has created some incredible outfits for the movie. There has also been a Tiffany collaboration - wow! We are all waiting in anticipation!
But until the release we can all recreate our own speakeasy glam with these gorgeous items……….
Gatsby Chic…….Rock one of these stunning frocks to your next party with all the beading, delicate lace and shimmer – and feel amazing. This incredible nude flapper dress from Jigsaw (£325) is a major investment piece, beautifully made and just oozes glamour! Topshop have the ultimate little black flapper dress (£160) These are party pieces that will work well now and all the way through until Christmas.
Pale creamy skin is Gatsby style – and there’s no better foundation for this than Chanel Perfection Lumiere, light reflecting amazingness, long lasting with an SPF (£36 – Harrods)
Add the perfect pink blush from Dainty Doll – especially made for pale skin by none other than major UK fashionista and member of Girls Aloud Nicola Robertson.
This look needs a dark red lip and NARS Fire Down Below is a great shade. The semi matte formula is ideal for the 20′s look and is set to be huge this year. Semi Matte a la 90′s – is where’s it at.
Statement jewelery is a must and this stunning vintage necklace from Max & Chloe (£77) is perfect. Emerald colored rhinestones are interlocked with multi stranded ball link chains accented with vintage filagree beads.
This flapper cuff from Amrita Singh (£52) is an easy way to add a little 1920′s chic – gold plated with enamel detailing and austrian crystals – beautiful.
Choose a pretty sequinned headband – this Daytrip glitter band has the right feel – just £6.79 at Buckle – www.buckle.com
Finally complete the look with a delicately beaded handbag for authentic 20′s feel - The Kardashian Kollection has this gorgeous number – £30 at Dorothy Perkins.
Grab a cocktail and get your Gatsby on!

Oversized Rings are seriously cool – and I adore this gorgeous turquoise statement piece from Accessorize
The Cosmic Stone Ring – £15
It lifts nude tones, adds drama to any brights, compliments your Summer wardrobe but will work all year round. I wear mine all the time – really comfortable - and people are always asking me where I got it. A great price, and a good size. It doesn’t overpower the hand and looks great with other rings.
Celebrities LOVE turquoise statement rings!
Gorgeous! Get yours now!
