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.

Liz Earle Skincare
Where has the British Summer gone? It's all be a bit too gloomy of late, but in the hope that the sun will shine brightly again, I've put together an optimistic list of must-have beauty products that will see you through the heat wave. (If it comes back!)

Summer Beauty Kit

1. Love Me Naked - Rose Body Wash, £3.91
This rose infused wash leaves skin feeling soft and the scent is fresh and pretty. Packed with anti oxidants to help protect your skin, it's an ideal prep before applying your body butter or soufflé. It certainly perks me up in the morning!

Also available at Boots stores.

2. Butter London 3 Free Lacquers, £12
I love the polishes from Butter London; free form Formaldehyde, Toluene, and DBP, you can apply a fresh coat of polish as often as you like without the worry of excess toxins. London Underground, Portobello Pink and Jaffa are the hottest summer shades.

Also available at ASOS.

3. Mac Minreralise Skin Finish Natural Powder, £17.50
I swear by this powder. It cleverly combines a natural-matte finish with a little sun-kissed glow. I use it without foundation to even out my skintone and keep my face shine free throughout the day. It's light and non-clogging, so you won't have to worry about makeup breakouts.

Also available at Selfridges.

4. Sanctuary Sculpting Anti-Cellulite Treatment, £12.71
As far as home cellulite treatments go, this is the best I've used. After giving daily treatments with the gel, I can see a good visible difference in the typical problems areas. Use the treatment with the special cellulite massager and it helps to break down fatty deposits and encourages lymphatic drainage. My thighs look smoother and firmer, just in time for those mini shorts.

Also available at the Sanctuary Spa, London and Boots.

5. Impulse Romantic Spark, £0.99 (Superdrug Web deal)
I'm not usually one to wear body sprays, I'm an 'eau de toilette' girl myself but this Impulse spray is quite lovely and perfect for Summer. I received a sample last month and have since bought a second to keep in my handbag. It's very subtle so you can reapply throughout the day and not smell like a perfume counter.


6. Sleek Makeup Eye Dust, £2.59 (Superdrug Web deal)
This highly luminescent eyeshadow glides effortlessly onto the skin leaving a sparkling film of colour on your eye lids creating a sleek and stunning look. Tried and tested by yours truly, it has great staying power and won't melt after a few hours in the sun. Scuba and Glory are my favourite hues to combine.


7. Scholl Intensive Night Treatment, £5.86
Pop some of this lotion onto the feet at night and let it work its magic. If you're prone to dry, hard skin on the soles, this treatment penetrates deep into the skin to seal in moisture and restore the skin's softness. So you wake up with soft, supple, gladiator-worthy footsies.

    Love Sleek and I so need to get a Mac Minerilizer skin finish. I am so late with that one
