Merry Christmas guys!, I just wanted to remind you that the countdown to Christmas begins less than 3 weeks away and if like me you’re still hunting for the ideal gifts as presents I’ve come across these amazing Christmas gifts set from Ted Baker London.  Just the other day I had the pleasure of receiving a gifted parcel from the brand and what a surprise it was being so close to my Birthday last weekend which made my day. Ted Baker unveils their exclusive Christmas Gift sets for the Festive Season at Boots UK available to buy now in store or online.

Design led, on trend and highly giftable everyday treats that lead to No Ordinary Experience.

I’m a great fan of their menswear and lifestyle products too which includes also grooming and accessories.

I recently discovered the brand also has various standalone Barber Shop’s Ted’s Grooming room where you can experience firsthand the finest grooming by Master Barbers such as authentic prestigious Turkish barbering skills inspired by quintessential British style.  I’m very keen to try this out as I’ve heard you will enjoy the best haircut in London to Traditional Wet Shaves.  Ted’s Grooming Room offers gift vouchers, Hair products, gift certificates and more to satisfy even the most dandy gentry debonair about town.

Expect and invest in fine new formulations at Ted’s Grooming Room that burst with active ingredients’ including making a long lasting impression with Ted’s invigorating signature cologne perfected in London and inspired by Turkish aftershave.

It’s a good job then that Ted Baker has released its Festive Gift Set’s just in time for Christmas and my favourite pick from the limited edition range exclusive to Boot’s UK has to be their ‘Flight of Fancy’ Men’s Grooming Kit. What I love about this range is that this gift set comes equipped with everything a Ted clientele needs, including a manicure set to keep you perfectly groomed on your travels.

In addition the set comes complete with graphite black hair & body wash plus matching fragrant body spray that has an invigorated scent with aromas of enticing smoky spiced blend of pink pepper, tobacco and rich cedarwood for the man on the go.

The Eagle illustration on the packaging cleverly suggest it’s a gift set for made for travel as you can see where flight of fancy gets its name from. It’s definitely for those who love to jet set and travel on vacation either for business or pleasure making it the perfect travel companion as an addition to refresh your grooming kit.

Ted Baker began life as shirt maker during the late 1980’s in the UK as quintessentially British Brand with its presence in over 380 stores and concessions all around the world.  I would definitely say that Ted Baker’s Lifestyle Collection should be part of every discerning man’s lifestyle from his wardrobe to essential grooming routine from distinct clothing collection to accessories to dress yourself or your home.

Make Ted Baker a must have style statement for your bathroom this Christmas, with design led, on trend prints and fashion inspired colour pallet. I have to say that trying on the men’s grooming ranges deliver both formulations and compelling fragrances with a contemporary edge taking the lead from fine fragrance.

THE ALLURING SCENT OF JO MALONE COLOGNE | HIS & HERS UNISEX FRAGRANCES

A GENDER NEUTRAL FRAGRANCE THAT YOU'LL BOTH ADORE TOGETHER

 

The other day I took my first visit to my local Jo Malone store during a casual stroll in town as you do to seek the perfect gift for some inspiration.  I was astonished to find here a selection for Men’s Grooming, Women’s Beauty to Gender Neutral Products namely fragrances which I was very tempted to try out while inside the store.

Jo Malone London

 

I’ve always heard great things about The Jo Malone Brand as it’s very quintessentially British and one of my favourite luxury products as an alternative to designer fragrances.  We all have our favourite signature fragrances when it comes to scents that feel almost personal to us when we wear them on our skin.

I could spend all afternoon here trying on every invigorating scent that captivates my interest till I find the one for me or someone else as a gift, because we all like to indulge and be spoiled from time to time.

So, if you’re not all familiar with Jo Malone London let me give you a little bit of background into this iconic British Brand and what makes it so unique.

Jo Malone London

 

Jo Malone is a British perfume and scented candle brand founded in 1983. Since 1999 it has been owned by Cosmetics giant Estee Lauder. This luxury brand is synonymous for its high end perfumes. Luxury candles, bath products and room scents.

An interesting fact about the brand is that they appointed English Model and Musician Karen Elson and Model and Actress Poppy Delevingne who have served as spokesperson for the brand.

The fragrance I decided to choose this time round had to be the Honeysuckle & Davana Cologne from the Jo Malone Fragrances which is sweet , not too overpowering and just right with its fresh scented aroma’s can also be Unisex. It’s very versatile and feel I can wear this cologne day in, day out as it’s very alluring when people have commented on the scent’s smell  the first time I wore it.

Incase, you’re wondering to know what’s the main ingredients’ of the fragrance are; it evokes the wildness of honeysuckle, fresh tone of rose together with the aromatic fruity twist of davana and woody with Moss warmed by sunshine which I was instantly obsessed with.

For me, it had to be the hints of liquorice that’s very suttle in sweetness brings to life a fragrance that’s light and ideal for daytime or evening.

Which reminds me that I need to try next the Huntsman  x Jo Malone range which is on my wish list just in time for Christmas.

 

This product retails at £ 47.00 30 ml and £ 94.00 100 ml. To find out more about Jo Malone London visit them online or at their Stores in the UK.

PARIS FASHION WEEK SKINCARE DIARY | TIP’S TO REFRESH YOUR GROOMING KIT ON THE GO

GET TO KNOW MY SKINCARE ROUTINE OVER COUTURE PARIS FASHION WEEK - CLARIN'S REVIEW

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 3min read804 views

As Summer is already underway I’m back! This time I’ve got some exciting news to share with you all that I have a last minute invitation to attend Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week next week.

From personal experience of traveling to a new city can be very exciting as well as daunting so what to take and pack needs careful thought for those of us that follow a strict beauty and grooming regime.

Paris Fashion Week Skincare Diary

Personally I quite like the idea of being pampered and taking some of my favourite things with me along for the journey so it makes life that little bit more easier being away from home which leaves me to dwell on fashion week.

When traveling to other cities you are in fact living out of a suitcase so I always look forward to trying new products during my trip especially if you manage to get sponsored by one of world’s leading beauty and grooming cosmetics companies Clarins Paris.

Allot of the time I find with cosmetics I like to use both Men’s and Women’s products as long as it does what it says on the tin to certain degree don’t you think. At times we all need to prep our skin so we can ensure we look our best with fashion week being no exception. Achieving flawless looking skin does not happen overnight but with the right products you can achieve your goal. Always set a bench mark of what you expect your skin to look like before and after.

Here’s what’s in my bag

Paris Fashion Week Skincare Diary

Often whilst traveling your skin suffers from dehydration and looks very tired and unflattering but its helps to choose products that help lift, re-vitalise, cleanse and re-energises for a fresh appearance complexion.

 

As soon as you get to your hotel and unpack I enjoy getting out my travel size grooming products on the bathroom counter so everything looks organised and makes you feel more at home while your away traveling abroad.

Lucky for me this bag is my lifeline to survive fashion week in Paris as these grooming and beauty products happen to French too seems a coincidence that I’m in Paris. For the next 3 days it’s more than enough to last me the whole trip and a bit more.

In case you’re wondering which is my favourite item which has to be the One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with hints of citrus and micro-beads that penetrate deep into the skin works really well as a skin scrub to remove any dirt and blackheads. I just love the way it smells with an orange scent of summer is just fresh and so clean on the pores of my skin.

SHOP MY FASHION WEEK SKINCARE ROUTINE

I heard the weather is going to be very warm in Paris so protecting your face from the sun is crucial for younger looking skin and Clarin’s has a product just for that a Super Restorative Day cream with SPF as soon as you step outside. Another favourite is the Clarins extra firming eye cream as some days your eyes need that feeling of being refreshed after a long day and night. Beauty sleep is the next best thing as skin needs to renew their cells and happens during your sleep apparently. On second thought’s during Fashion Week it’s hard to find rest breaks in between shows and events so any products that help you achieve your skins full potential the better.

What I love most about Clarin’s it’s a family owned business which has been a leading French Skincare brand expert since 1954.

Which is your favorite Clarins Paris product and please feel free to comment below this post so others can share feedback about these amazing products.

 

Disclaimer: A huge thank you to Clarins Paris UK and the team at Elphicks 1881 for kitting me out with my grooming and beauty essentials during my Trip in Paris over Haute Couture Fashion Week. All opinions are my own and I will never promote something I don’t personally use and believe in

DEVOTE A DAY TO PAMPERING RELAXING AT HOME WITH NEALS YARD REMEDIES AND ISLE OF SKYE CANDLE COMPANY

WHAT A BETTER WAY THAN SPENDING THE EASTER WEEKEND AT HOME IN THE COUNTRY

With Bank Holidays around the corner, what trips will you be planning? Style your getaway capsule closet with a touch of well-being to help you relax and unwind during your weekend away.

Although it’s a long weekend break I’m going to make the most of it and looking forward to trying out these amazing body and bath products as well as home items.

Taking home comforts with you while traveling makes it all worthwhile so you can spoil and pamper yourself with these amazing products from Neals Yard Remedies and Isle of Skye Candle Company.

Scented candles are just one of the few favourite things I love to take with me during my travels because they are so easy to pack and small in size along with the rest of my miniature travel essentials.  The scented candle happens to be Vanilla and Fig scent which is delicately sweet. It ‘s infact a unique product being made in Scotland as the classic tartan suggest luxury and sophistication in the ways its package makes it the ideal present.

Being Easter Holidays I’m so grateful to have this product gifted to me as a present so I can try it out which is one of the perks of blogging that you sometimes get complimentary products from brands which I much prefer instead of a chocolate Easter egg.

I found this weekend’s weather to be quite disappointing with the downpour of rain I still managed to get out and about for a walk with my dog in the countryside for some fresh air. Afterwards you know that feeling of coming in from the cold and wet it’s time for some me time to relax and unwind. There’s nothing more better or comforting than running hot bath and with a drop of Neals Yard Remedies Aromatic Foaming Bath to restore your body’s sense of wellbeing.

 

This delightfully fragrant foaming bath contains a soothing aromatherapy blend of flower scents including lavender, Spanish marjoram and geranium essential oils with a skin condition herbal infusion to help relax you. What I love about this product most is its organically produced ingredients’ and paraben free. Do you have certain travel essentials you love to pack feel free to leave a comment below as I’d love to hear your suggestions.

Have a wonderful  Easter Bank Holiday x

It’s definitely that time of year when everyone is starting to think about Summer Vacations, where to go and what to pack seems just as relevant in what you choose in your suitcase and hand luggage. Travel should always be a pleasant experience where by things should run as smoothly as possible and taking into account those home comfort items you bring along for the ride.
