Style Note: The Isabella Oliver Cape

Posted by London Darling

Yesterday was one of those cold and breezy days in London when you really need something warm and snug to wrap up in. And what better way to wrap up than in a cape. It's the perfect alternative to a winter coat. I received this beautiful one as a Christmas Gift from one of my favourite labels Isabella Oliver.

London Fashion Week Diary: BODYAMR

Posted by London Darling

The BODYAMR show was one that I was particularly looking forward to, and it was well worth the wait. The signature draping that I love still played a huge role in the collection as an abundance of luxe fabrics and beaded embellishment.

Beauty Buzz: Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare

Posted by London Darling

I recently changed my beauty regime to include the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, the Instant Boost Skin Tonic and Skin Repair Moisturiser. It's been just six days, and already I've seen a noticeable difference in the clarity of my complexion and the texture of my skin.

Chocolate Body Wrap with Massage

If you're a chocolate lover like me, you're bound to love some of these beauty products I'm about to share with you. Over the last month, I've been testing yummy body butters, lip balms and spa treatments that have left me with quite a sugar rush. Here's my pick of the top 5 cocoa delights:

Savana Spa, London

1. Chocolate Body Wrap with Massage
Savana Spa, Westbourne Grove, London

The chocolate body wrap is an hour of pure bliss! I experienced this at the Savana Spa in London. They use pure cocoa butter with natural sugars to wrap your skin in a cocoon of chocolate goodness! The wrap conditions your skin whilst you're indulged in a hydrating chocolate face masque and relaxing head massage. The treatment really does help to lift the spirits as I had a pretty bad start to the day but left the spa feeling upbeat and delicious. You can book online via View London for the lowest price.


24 Hour Naked - Coco de Mer Body Butter

2. 24 Hour Naked - Coco de Mer Body Butter

This is just pure, gorgeousness in a jar. The scent alone is enough to satisfy your chocolate craving and with the added benefits of Shea butter, passionflower extracts and coconut, it really does what it promises and keeps your skin moisturised for a full 24 hrs. What's more it contains 97% natural ingredients and minimum preservatives, just enough to make it last the distance but gentle enough for sensitive skin like mine. Be careful with this one girls - it's addictive.

Jelly Pong Pong Gourmet Lip Therapy

3. Jelly Pong Pong Gourmet Lip Therapy

Blended with real sugar, honey and cocoa, this tinted lip glosses is heaven on the lips. It costs a little more than I would normally spend on a gloss but after trying it myself, I think it's well worth the money. It hydrates the lips far better than some of the cheaper alternatives and it leaves the lips looking soft, supple with a little bit shine that's not overly sticky. You only need a little to get your chocolate fix and with the delicious scent on your lips, you just may find that you can say no to that tempting packet of Minstrels. Is Gourmet Lip Therapy a new way to curb those chocolate cravings? It just might be....

Ciate Paint Pots - Guest List

4. Ciaté Paint Pot - Guest list

It doesn't smell like of cocoa, but it sure does look a chocolate explosion on the nails. This mouth-watering shade looks terrific against tanned skin and I found the flat brush a doodle to use in applying the colour. Not only does it look fab on the nails, the packaging is adorable with its chic little bow. This is definitely a bottle to display on the dresser.

Ishi Gianduja Chocolate Body Oil

5. Ishi Gianduja Chocolate Body Oil

Ooh la la! This oil has a lovely nutty, chocolate aroma that is wonderful on your skin or indeed on someone else *Ahem!* It's light and non greasy which helps it to absorb easily and it's great for sensitive skin. I used it after showering and it really does lock in the moisture and leaves you smelling good enough to eat.
