I feel awful about how long it’s been since I last posted, but I was in New York, and just had no time at all to sit down and edit photos, write etc, so I thought I would do a little recap. View Post

I am dying over the new Proenza degrade clutch – colours, the pink studs – I am in love!

The clutch is currently available on the US Net-a-Porter and is $1450

Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray*

Whenever the temperature goes up, my hopes of having a perfectly coiffed do disappear completely – call it the curse of the wavy-haired – so instead of stressing (and straightening) I have turned to Bumble & Bumble for their cult Surf Spray.

I should probably admit to coveting this item for years – since I was probably about 15, but my love for shiny straight hair kind of got into the way – so even when it got a little steamy I would just squirt on some more glossing cream and dig out the GHDs. This year however, I’m feeling a little different (plus I’m heading to the hairdressers in a fortnight and want my hair to be healthy) so I have left my trusty straighteners in the drawer and am embracing some of my ‘natural’ beachy waves.

To use, I was and 1/2 blow dry my hair, twisting lengths of it into ropes, and spray the B&B on liberally; I kind of thought the spray would have a beachy/coconutty/suncreamy scent but it really just smells of hairspray, although it fades super quickly. After application I continue drying my hair, still twisted until there is no wetness, then I run my fingers through it, and add another couple of quick squirts through the ends and underneath. With this, I get hair which doesn’t look try-hard, but instead just looks good! Since it is a salt spray, you’re hair won’t be shiny per say, but this is easily fixed with a dab of serum through the ends, and the texture the product gives you means hair won’t fall flat in high humidity.

The Surf Spray costs £22.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)

Super Facialist by Una Brennan – Skin Renew Cleansing Oil*

With all of the wonderful summer weather we have been enjoying, I thought I would bring news of the summeriest new skincare range out there now.

Super Facialist by Una Brennan has released an entire new range which focuses on boosting skin radiance and adding a much coveted glow through the use of advanced Vitamin C+. The details are all very science-y so to condense it down, just look forward to skin which is brightened and replenished after using the products.

I tried the Skin Renew Cleansing Oil, which is part one of a dual stage cleanser – you follow it with an exfoliator from the range – and I have to say, I am pretty hooked! To use it, you simply pour a little from the bottle into the palms of your hands, rub together and apply to your face, then I add a teeny-tiny little bit of water which then turns the oil light and milky, then use a clean, warm flannel to remove any makeup and impurities which can languish on the skin. The oil feels wonderfully rich and luxurious, yet once I have washed it off, there doesn’t feel like there is any type of film left behind – just clean, soft skin, which is left smelling faintly of oranges – blissful in the hot and sticky weather!

I am such a fan of the Super Facialist range, I can’t believe just how reasonably priced the products are – especially with how expensive they feel when used! The Cleansing Oil is priced at £10.99 and I just can’t wait to try the exfoliator and eye cream from the range!

Una Brennan Superfacialist Skin renew Cleansing Oil is priced at £10.99 and is available here.
