Stand Up Against Street Harassment with L'Oréal Paris

L'Oréal Paris has always championed women's empowerment by encouraging generations of women to realise their self-worth, starting with the renowned 'Because You're Worth It' tagline. Street harassment is the #1 issue faced by women worldwide, with 80% having experienced sexual harassment in public spaces. It impacts women's daily life, robbing them of their sense of security and confidence. Because this type of violence goes against everything L'Oréal Paris stands for, the brand is committed to Stand Up Against Street Harassment globally. 

Together with international NGO partner, Right To Be, and their local charity partner the Suzy Lamplugh Trust, L'Oréal has joined forces to train everyone in the 5Ds methodology by Right To Be through training sessions in both public spaces and online at

The Lush Naked Mascara has arrived

(Features press samples & affiliate links - see disclaimer)

A few months ago, Lush Cosmetics (finally) launched their much coveted naked mascara - a completely new innovation in cosmetics, 100% vegan and available in four shades. 

Beautifully formed, the Naked Mascara uses butters and waxes to create an iconic, solid product, which creates a lovely effect on the lashes and the planet. Retailing at £10.00 - I've been trying the mascaras for a few months now and I'm finally ready to share some thoughts. 

"If there is one makeup product we can’t do without - it's mascara. So it is right at the top of the list to create a more environmentally friendly way to enable us to use something we know and love. If you have used block mascara before, this will be easy. If you haven’t - it's a knack! So get the knack and make a difference!"

4 New in haircare products you should try next

(Features press samples & affiliate links - see disclaimer)

When it comes to hair, I take as much care as possible. Gone are the days of picking up whatever was on offer, I prefer to invest a little more time and effort in what I'm using especially since suffering from post-partum hair loss after both pregnancies - my thick, voluminous hair isn't quite what it was.

I've been trying a few different products this year, some of them new to me, some new to us all as they were recently released; I'm only featuring three brands, and there are three products from just one brand within this post so let's dive in - we'll all be swishing our shiny, fabulous hair before we know it.

The Temple Spa Advent Calendar 2022

(Features press samples & affiliate links - see disclaimer)

As October flies by, we're fast approaching the most wonderful time of year and I have another beauty advent calendar to show you and oh it's a good'un!

Featuring 24 doors full of Temple Spa favourites, new treats and award-winning creations, the Temple Spa Beauty Advent Calendar is inspired by our great discoveries and hidden joy. 

The calendar combines a beautiful peacock feather-flocked design entwined with blues, greens and golds I'm sure many of us associate with the skincare brand. The new design also means you'll be able to re-use it for storing beauty products, jewellery and more once you've opened all your drawers in December.
Be warned, there are spoilers ahead...

L'Occitane Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar 2022

(Features press samples & affiliate links - see disclaimer)

It's advent calendar season and I have one to show you from one of my favourite skincare brands, L'Occitane.

Every year I share one of L'Occitane's advent calendars and with three to choose from including their oh-so-beautiful reusable advent you're bound to find the one most suited to you.

I find advent calendars are a great way to discover a new brand and try their products before committing to something full size; So with hand creams, facial cleansers and soaps to their much-loved oils and perfumes, it's a fab treat to open each day in the lead up to Christmas.

Their latest launch sees Lush offering transformative experiences, away from endless scrolling with the launch of three new bath bombs as part of its Bathing in Poetry range. For the first time, they've been able to capture the mood and escapism meaning bath time just stepped up a gear.

Five Happy Things // September '22

And just like that there's another new month and update - I feel as though this year is really flying by and I'm not at all ready. September lasted all of two minutes or at least that is how it felt but I'm so ready for October. It's my favourite month - full of change, cooler temperatures, beautiful colours and of course my darling little boy turns five! 

As much as September flew by it has been a great month so I've somehow managed to pull together five happy things, I had so many to choose from but I whittled it down. Let's have a nose...
