I love… I love

Hey guys,

So, my pick of the week has to be I Love Cosmetics. The ridiculously good price points, addictive smells and cute, girly design are some of the many reasons these products should be on everyones shopping list.

My personal favourite is the strawberries and cream hand cream, smells so divine and makes my hands feel amazing - especially perfect with the cold weather damaging my skin.

Zuzka Skincare

Hola chicos y chicas! Karen and I recently attended another Bloggers Love Hub event at Kanaloa – Mahiki’s sister club. Whilst we were there we got talking to lots of fabulous people with some seriously amazing products.

The one thing I simply CANNOT stop using and I keep practically dreaming about is these two products from skincare range Zuzka. We sat down and talked with the brands creator and got to know a bit about the brand.  She asked us about our skin care routines, what type of skin we had and then very kindly suggested samples we could try. 


She gave us ‘Organic Precious Oil’ for use at night dependant on our skin type - and they smell absolutely gorgeous. Mine sends me right off to sleep as it’s infused with lavender and lemongrass. It also nourishes and combats oily or problematic skin, so it’s a winner for me. The 'Contour Day Cream' moisturiser for day use is very light, smells incredible and goes on ever so smoothly. I would definitely recommend.

The Royal Ascot: Georgia

So as you guys are already aware, Karen and I headed over to the Royal Ascot on Saturday and lapped up the premier admission lifestyle. We got there fashionably late - which is expected seeings as our time keeping skills absolutely suck, but it was fun nonetheless. We placed a few bets on some horses that weren't even racing at Ascot, drank some coffee and took a few pics which you can see below. 

I had a nightmare deciding what to wear and thought against ankle grazer trousers as dress code rules apply. So in the end I opted for a black silk cami from Zara, a midi skirt courtesy of Karen, pumps from H&M, a fur gilet from John Rocha and a Windsmoor coat. 

I actually bought my fur headband from the Ascot Christmas market, as well as some super cute fur trimmed red gloves.

Rocking The Royal Ascot

Hey guys, 

Yesterday, Georgia and myself had the privilege to go to the Royal Ascot. It was such a wonderful day, we did lose some money on the horses and even bet on a race that was actually taking place at a different location - think we will leave the bets down to the other attendees next time, embarrassing! 

Here's a peep at what I wore: 

Lipstick - mix of So Chaud by MAC (red, inset) and Divine 2 by Colourchase Cosmetics (blue, outset)

Hat and fur gloves -  Laurie & Jules at the Christmas market at Ascot
Bag - Vintage

Necklace - Vintage
Black Mac Coat - Asos

Scarf - Vintage

What did you guys get up to at the weekend?

Charcoal Spa

If you know Karen and I, then you'll know that we LOVE bath/body products. We have countless amounts of Boots advantage card points from this weird obsession, not to mention the vast array of products from Soap and Glory and Sanctuary. 

We stumbled upon Charcoal Spa at the Bloggers Love Hub and we fell in love instantly. The four products we saw and I believe the brand currently stock are their detoxifying face mask, salt scrub, natural candle and soap bar, all made from natural charcoal. We got gifted by the lovely founder and I can't express to you how much I adore the salt scrub and face mask. The salt scrub has natural salt pieces in it of all different sizes, and really feels like its getting deep in your pores. Whereas the face mask reminds me of clay but has a slightly spongey texture, and they both smell naturally beautiful.

Madame La La: Fake Tan

Orange palms and streaky legs can only mean one thing; fake tan. Most of us girls love our golden skin colour fresh from a bottle occasionally, and I'll tell you this, I'm in love with Madame La La's self tan mousse - and I've not even used it yet. 

The idea behind Madame La La's came from LA and the sun kissed skin everyone seems to boast in the famous West Coast city. It aims to give a light bronzed coverage instantaneously as well as moisturise with added coco water and aloe. Not only is the packaging super chic (I'm a big fan of monochrome and the gold foil sets it off) but it actually smells nice too! Karen and I have been known to compare the smell of most fake tans to that of burnt digestive biscuits, so to smell coconuts makes a nice change.

I'll get some on soon and let you guys know what I think of it.
