Whether its your first date with a new guy or a romantic eve with your man – these little beauties will set the scene, make you feel fabulous and look amazing.
Ease into the night by running a warm bath. Light a candle, put on some great music, and slip into the bath….. make your skin silky, soft, and sweet smelling…
Diptique candles are the best. Classic stylish packaging, sophisticated scent, handmade with a 50-60 hour burning time, so super long lasting. Ambre is an elegant scent -with hints of patchouli and tonka bean. (£40 – John Lewis/Liberty)
Submerge yourself in the silky deliciousness of Calm One Calm All bubble bath with built in body lotion by the incredible Soap and Glory (£5.50 – Boots) This super smoother soothes and refreshes you all in one go – the combination of relaxing mallow and stimulating lemon balm really works.
Venus Embrace (£6.29) is the best razor on the market. Looks pretty in your bathroom and gives you the silkiest legs.
After your bath pat the skin dry and apply the honey heaven that is Laura Mercier Honey Creme Brulee Souflle Body Cream -(£43 – House of Fraser) an amazing indulgence that gives you satin like skin.
I’m really impressed with the new wave of BB Creams. This one from Maybelline (£7.99) does it all – light coverage with added glow- it actually improves your skin!
Benefit’s High Beam (£19.50) is still the best in the business – nothing compares when it comes to highlighting and just making you look beautiful. Dab around the eye area and along the cheekbone for stunning results.
Stila’s Kitten eyeshadow (£12) really makes the eyes sparkle. Its such a wearable shade too.
Follow with loads of incredible mascara L’Oreal’s Million Lashes (£10.99) Not only is the packaging stunning, but this is serious stuff, makes lashes look huge, full and very long. I think it rivals YSL’s False Lash and at half the price too.
OPI’s Got a Date to Knight(£11) is the perfect pink for your fingertips!
Our favourite date night scent is Stella Mc Cartney. The bottle looks amazing on your dressing table and its smells wonderful – rose and amber …..and romance!
A modern classic!

It is that time of year again and the wedding season is in full swing! Here are my picks to help you find that perfect dress. 🙂 Have FUN and take a deep breath!!
One of the biggest decisions any bride will face as the big day approaches is choosing that perfect wedding dress. The process of shopping for a wedding dress can be a fabulous adventure, but it can also be stressful and overwhelming and frustrating –particularly because a bride-to-be often starts shopping for her gown before many other details are determined.
You might have previously had had a clear picture of your perfect wedding dress ever since you were five years old. On the other hand, you may have no idea what you are going to wear or feel strange about the idea of wearing white. The important thing is to relax, and remember that there are as many different kinds of dresses out there as there are different kinds of brides.
Here are my picks for the perfect destination wedding dresses.
