New Year Cruelty-Free Skincare Favourites

I started this year with a brand new skincare routine. In my opinion there's no better time to have a skincare splurge than January, when your skin is bearing the brunt of being stuck indoors with central heating or being blasted outdoors by icy wintry winds.

I first stumbled upon Copycat Fragrances when I asked a colleague what her perfume was - she wore it every day and I always noticed and liked it. She said it was Baccarat Rouge 540 - but not the real Baccarat Rouge 540, the dupe from Copycat Fragrances. A bit of research later and I … Continue reading Cruelty Free Designer Perfume Dupes

The GHD Air Hairdryer, Reviewed

GHD Air Hairdryer

I’ve had the same heavy old hairdryer for about 10 years, and although it still works I decided at last that it was about time I upgraded. As a birthday treat to myself I invested in the GHD Air hairdryer, which was £89 from John Lewis.
