Jane Iredale D2O Hydration Spray

Earlier this month the UK was hit by a mini heatwave and we were subject to the hottest July day on record. I am not particularly good in the heat and the merest glimpse of an orange triangle (let alone a red one) on the weather forecast and those around me are bracing themselves for a rough ride. As soon as temperatures rise above 25OC (yes I am that intolerant of heat) I am reaching for products and items to relieve my heat induced misery...

Seduce by RMS Beauty

Earlier this year I attended the launch of the Tinted Un-Cover Up powder at natural and organic beauty store Content.

Free from Skincare Awards 2015

This post was intended to be one covering my visit to the Love Natural, Love Organic show at London's Olympia. But it ain't - sorry.

A last minute booking (on something that may be on your screens around christmas time) meant that I was unable to attend the show after all - thus scuppering my planned post! Instead, thanks to the magic of twitter and the internet, I am bringing you the results of the Free From Skincare Awards 2015...

An Evening With May Lindstrom

My name is Laura and I am a May Lindstrom virgin...

So, on Saturday evening I rode the Jubilee line to Bond Street, made the short hop up Marylebone Lane to Content, with the sole purpose of finding out a little more about the brand.
