Last week we were kindly invited along to an intimate blogger event with The Body Shop in Silverburn Shopping Centre to find out more about their products. When you’re in your early teens it seems like the thing to do to visit the Body Shop for tea tree oil when the problematic skin starts. Now that we’re a little older we haven’t been too familiar with the products as we used to be but with the event was a chance to try out new products as well as rediscovering some old favourites. Here’s what happened.
If you’re an avid reader of beauty blogs, you have probably came across a Diptyque candle or two. These luxury candles have been making their way through the blogosphere and after many hours of adding them to my shopping list and clicking away, I couldn’t resist any longer. Rather than take a gamble and buy a full sized candle, I came across the Diptyque Classic Coffret which features three of their most loved candles in miniature form. Here’s what I thought of them.
This week we attended the INAA Scottish Hair and Beauty Award finalist announcement blogger event at The Apartment in Glasgows 29 Private Members Club. The awards to celebrate Scottish talent are being hosted by I Need An Appointment, an online hair and beauty portal booking service and sponsored by GHD, Laurens Way and many more exciting brands.
Growing up I was never trusted to have candles in my room. When the day finally came I bought a ton of mini candles and I’ve been working my way through all different kinds since. Now that I’m in my 20s I’ve moved away from sickly sweet scents and opted for more sophisticated ones. Back in 2011 when we went to London I had my first taste of soy candles (not literally) and it was a game changer. Nothing irritates me more than unevenly burning candles and the struggle it is to even them out so soy candles were the perfect choice. This time, it’s Jonathan Ward’s Fig Ultimatum* candle.
Last week we took a trip to Edinburgh to visit the new Lush Spa for a relaxing day of some much needed pampering.
