Hello all hope you’re well.
So this is more of a diary entry of what i got up to yesterday.
But i thought could quite fun.
So i attend a couple of
Press events with a friend. Whom is a fabulous blogger “labels for lunch ”
Myself with the gorgeous
B social pr girls
Always on the hunt for cool Things.we popped into missguided http://www.missguided.co.uk
A great fashion brand, whom i have no doubt you all know and shop at.
I really enjoyed the collections into sections and sports luxe is still going strong , I’m a big fan, a jacket very similar in style to the Victoria Beckham one, which i was utterly obsessed by. Missguided had there version in a grey marl. Err hello ill be needing that.
” missguided quote
It’s game on with sports -inspired head -to-toe-woah looks, or if you minimalist cool is more your thing, layer up with simple shapes and relaxed tailored styles ”
I also popped back in the evening for their fabulous 90s music party .super hilarious and so fab the girl from b social pr

The incredibly glamour sam f
Launched her “lashes by Samantha ”
At the sanderson hotel. One of my favourite London HotSpots

Fluttery full but delicate lashes
Can’t wait to try them out.
After the huge success of
“La Bella” sam’s fragrance lashes were a must, for the glamourpuss and business women.
My self arriving /leaving the fantastic event. Nordic poetry
Fur collar .
Also popping to A Film/ documentary on the beauty industry, held at the rather Chic Bvlgari Hotel, with friend Lady Nadia Essex
I’m always very interested when it comes to learning more about the beauty industry, how ever long you’ve been in it, there is always a new facial, technology, technique to be learnt or had.
Before the events, Nadia and I popped to the Rodial bar at Harvey Nics to have a little make over, Rodial as you may know,if you follow me regularly is a fantastic Cosmetic brand, they were having a event, looked after by the amazing Media Hubb team.
Known for the sculpt look ,after recently launching the Make up line, to along side their superjammed of goodness creams/lotions.
So i was very kindly invited,by the gorgeous girls at media hubb to go to Harley Street clinic, to have a facial, not only that, but the facailst would be Top Celebrity Favourite Elizabeth Caroline.
How could I possibly turn that down.
Elizabeth is known for her incredible treatments and will a fabulous list of guests you can see why. Even on the day i attended. EC had a few other celebs popping in.
So to the facial.
My skin has been somewhat Lack luster and very dry. Thank you winter. Something moat of us, are going through.
So during my treatment i was cleansed to have my skin ready for the facial it’s self.
The head of the instrument that was used for the treatment had very fine needles, which i couldn’t feel, nothing painful what so ever. But i did sneeze, while it was worked over my forehead, it tickled, so if your worried about pain, this fabulous treatment has none. It also has
No down time.
So you dont need to hide away, like some treatments .you can have this treatment 48 hours before a big event. i Left 3 opps as I Attended The Play ” my night with reg” red carpet.
I recommend waiting as your skin will be open and you don’t want to get any dirt in.
Now the day after, using the at Home aftercare, ( dermatude pigment equalizer facial serum/cream) my skin no longer feels tight and is looking refreshed and I do believe over the next few days, it will get even better.
This treatments advantages are.
.no anesthesia required
.recovery time within a few hours
.You can put your make up back on after 24 hours
.immediate visible results
.short treatment time (30mins ish)
HERE COMES THE SCIENCE
“Meta therapy involves invisible micro-perforations in the skin in a painless way.as a result the skin shifts it’s natural repair mechanism into high gear and start producing collagen and elastin to repair the micro-perforations ”
100% natural way to give life back to your skin. Recommend in courses for full effects, but if in need of a skin pick me up. Try it Out.

Leaving the clinic
Elizabeth and myself, just after the facial, some natural pink to the skin is effective of the treatment.
Beautiful relaxing space, with the aftercare pack , to use at home.
Ok So New Year , and every one has their sales on. But do you need the 9th white vest or Fugly looking shoes, just because there a pound Err NO
Step away from the tut
Ok so not everyone has a Chanel budget, I’m not saying don’t buy in the sales, because like most i Do too.
I’m saying buy what you need, buy classic Not trend lead, as let’s be honest, its in the sale as it’s last season.
If your clever you can get some really fabulous things at a good price. I was obsessed with a Victoria Beckham shirt, but quite a chunk full price, simple white but utter perfection in the cut. Item went into the Sales, snapped it up and its now a forever piece.
I can bring it out over and over, styled differently and now one will be like
” oh he’s wearing that AGAIN”
Unlike if you buy a one season slogan tee or print that dates to quickly .
I talk about being classic a lot in articles and videos.
But it really does pay off , chic is just always perfect.
So we all want to be in fashion and look current, so how to buy into the new looks
What trends are in
Remember not all trends suit everyone, don’t worry be the best you x.
It’s back in a big way,
So it’s well into #lcm, London collections men, for it’s full title.
So all the dapper chaps and fashionista guys and girlie are pottering around , The Hospital Club (super chic destination in Covent Garden ). The BFC space and other glam locations and one Ex sex Shop, touch odd but a lovely collection.
So one’s skin needs looking after, the weather, booze and long days will have it’s tole.
So i came across a fantastic British Brand, for male skin care.
Formulated especially for male skin, this beautifully fresh scented range, is not only fabulously packaged, it has great effect on one’s skin.
The instant “wake me up” fresh smell, is stunning, i smell lemomgrass and botanical scents
4 product’s currently in the range are as follows.
Using jojoba beads to smooth, deeply clean and exfoliate with being harsh.
This cream helps to reduce the nasty effects of Razor burn, quoted as a “first aid defence ”
A facial wash, which gently cleanses and tone the skin in one go, soothing and balancing, jam packed with natural derived Oils, it’s a treat for your mush.
I must say, my favourite of the line, the smell is intensely fresh and revitalising. Nautral antioxidants and Soya oil, tackle ones fine lines, to help encourage healing and regeneration of new skin. Which helps the aging process.
I’m a big fan as the range is based fairly locally to me, with bright and modern style packing but with organic aspects.
Vegetarian society approved
And totally cruelty free
Popped in a Cheeky discount code, so you can give this fantastic range a go for yourself
Pun fully intended. Give it a glow/go.
Now we’re into a new year and, well let’s say we’ve all taken a battering, be it booze,late nights or indeed the Great British weather or for overseas readers , cold,bitter winds.
So how do we go about, making ourselves look, polished and the inner Jlo glow? To coin a phrase.
Well i have a few beauty tricks up my tailored sleeve, to help with such a common problem. A mix of items most at a healthy price point, well let’s be fair, we’ve all spent a small countries income on gifts over the festive season, so to treat ourselves without quilt is perfect. So on my youtube channel i did a demo Using The products, So do feel free to have a WATCH

For those whom like a read and the science bit , here we go.
The best thing is Not to over load the skin, as it can then look caked and flaky, which isn’t a desired look. Many face washes have a “wake me up” effect such as “clean &clear’s” morning energy, shine control daily wash.
It contains lemongrass and fruit extract , to awaken the skin, leaving it clear.
Now to hydrate, this really is Key during the winter, and we tend to need more effective ingredients,
Pixi Glow tonic
Is not Only a Cult Product but the main reason, i thought to write this article.
It gently exfoliates the skin, leaving a nautral glow, after getting the dead skin cells off. It soothes and nourishes the skin with botanical extracts, and is alcohol free. So No drying aspect EERR hello miracle toner.
I’ve actually used a few of the Pixi beauty range,within this article /my routine. Their primer has a sutble gold/pearl glow to the skin , which reminds me of a Becca skin perfector, which i use a LOT in pearl, more of the higher end but both are fab. i mix Either or in This Case, the pixi Into
My new obsession the Pixi H2O skintint, i use shade 1 cream (as reference ). This super hydrating tinted cream, gives perfect coverage, without being cakey or “made up”, great on guys as doesn’t show on the skin, your left nourished and healthy the mix of the two products is key.
Now I did mention moisturising, so back to this step, in winter im a big fab of creme da la mer, but lets be honest; its out of most budgets, so my favourite gel moisturiser is
For dull skin, the texture soaks beautifully into my skin, helping soften and relieve and discomfort from dryness, super affordable and really great.
Ok so make up tips, to fake perfect skin. Now don’t go to crazy with a highlighter, or you will have Moon face and honey that aint cute.
My current fav sutble highlighter, is a new product, from the recent launch of Rodial , make up /contour range. I’m in shade 1.
Dust this powder, gently under the brow bone, the water/tearduc, across the top of your cheek bones and down the centre of the nose if needed, leaves a gentle glow and awake look to the eyes , which is a must, if eyes look dull. Try a eyebrow, that helps beong sparkle /whitening to the eye.such as the boots one.
Also i recommend the makeup revolution highlighter for a more budget friendly idea.
Now your a glowing with glamour and life, hydrate from within , water kids its super important and let’s be honest, we never really drink enough. Im a coffee fend and to everyone coffee you need 3glasses of water to balance out. Ouch
There are gels you can add to water to help. Such as skinade. They are designed to help add collagen or extra vitamins to your organs. Doing you good, more long term for results but great non the less.
Blusher, its very important , adding colour to the skin brings life, power blushes can skin to dead/dry skin. So i always recommend a cream blusher. Im in love with ” sleek”‘s
A 3 blush palette offering colours such as
Newport peach (my fav)
The surf (softest )
Cab be mixed or alone, give great colour and life, super bendable and easy. I’m a big fan of sleek and have used on many celeb clients .
Thank you for joining me. And good luck. I leave you with some links and piccies
Much love,happy new year lew xx
