I’m in no way Irish – but I am in love with Lily Pulitzer’s illustration for the most adult of holidays – for me it really shoes how it is the start off spring. View Post

I’m heading off for Spring Break two weeks today – eek! exciting! So I am in major maintenance mode. View Post

If you are in London at any point between 16th March and 14th April I would strongly suggest you run (don’t walk) to Harrods. As if the store isn’t perfect enough View Post

I’m in dire need of having my hair done – my roots are really horrific – which means ponytails are currently my hairstyle of choice. High and bouncy, low and sleek, and everything in between are keeping me sane until my appointment (I am literally counting the days). So that my hair isn’t the complete bain of my life, I like them tidy – which is where Semisumo comes in.

I haven’t used pomade before, but with a couple of wispy layers at the front, I felt I needed to keep them under control. Once my hair is up, I simply put a teeny tiny amount onto my fingertips, rub them together, and smooth them over my crown. Hello to a tidy and shiny do!

The pomade feels more like a balm than I was expecting, and there is no stickiness -at all. Instead all you get is your hair sitting perfectly in place, with the added bonus of shine and a killer scent. I can imagine that this would be an incredible product if you have short, styled hair, but I am loving it despite my hair reaching past my shoulders. I have been using this everyday, and I have barely made a dent in it!

Semisumo is priced at £21.50 US readers can find it here

With the weather being really all-over-the-place I have to be careful with my skin – nothing too harsh or stripping – so cleansers can be tricky to choose. Elemental Herbology’s Delicate Cleanse is a great choice, if, like me, you have sensitive skin and like a foaming cleanser.

Elemental Herbology really have pushed the boat out with this product – Calendula, Marshmallow, Rosehip Oil, Argan Oil to name a few, are crammed into the generously sized bottle. The cleanser smells like fresh rhubarb and its a super refreshing way to start the day, and I use it along with my trusty clarisonic.

With all the key ingredients, my face is left soft and smooth, and redness is definitely curtailed – always a plus! When used along side their Calendula & Rose Damask moisturizer (review to come) my face stays calm and hydrated all day!

The brand has a wide range of products which cater for everything from dry skin to bath oils, and I can’t wait to try more!

The cleanser is priced £20.00
