YSL La Laque Couture nail varnishes

 I am a big fan of Revlon and YSL nail varnishes as I find they don’t chip as quick as other brands plus the colours are gorgeous. I always go for the nude shades rather than really bright shades, more suitable for work and less obvious if they chip!

The new collection from YSL is called La Laque Couture and is simply gorgeous. Take a look at all 30 shades, including some lovely bright ones which are iconic YSL colours and inspired by their fashion collections.



My favourite shade so far is No 24 Rose Abstrait, which I wore to a wedding at the weekend. What do you think? I love it and it’s a perfect nude shade which is part of the ‘French’ look in the collection. The varnishes aren’t cheap at £18 but worth it for a staple shade this summer. They also don’t chip easily and feel smooth and shiny on your nails so thumbs up from me.

Who else has tried the new collection and what do you think?

Summer fragrances from The Body Shop

If you are a fan of lighter (and cheaper!) summer fragrances, you’ll be excited to hear The Body Shop are launching some limited edition summer versions of their classic perfumes.


They include my favourite 2009′s Love Etc…, 2010′s Dreams Unlimited and 1981′s White Musk. White Musk Sun Glow contains notes of lemon, peony, sandalwood and musk; Love Etc... Sun Kiss includes notes of bergamot, jasmine, sandalwood and amber; and Dreams Unlimited Sun Fresh has notes of watermelon, mandarin, orris and salty aquatic notes. White Musk reminds me of being 15 again so brings back good memories but I really love Dreams Unlimited and Love Etc. All the perfumes are £15 and are perfect for long summer evenings and holidays – can’t wait! Click here to check out the whole range and book online.

Vaseline 2-in-1 Hand Cream + Anti Bac review


I popped in to meet the lovely Carly at Lexis PR on Thursday to find out about the new Vaseline 2-In-1 HandCream + Anti Bac and have a relaxing hand massage! The new Vaseline 2-In-1 is priced at £3.29 and combines hand cream with anti-bacteria gel which I believe is a new concept to the market.

I took a photo of the timeline on display which shows the activities that we do throughout the day with our hands that dry them out and gather germs. It totally freaked me out how much dirt you can pick up – like traveling on the tube, walking the dog and taking out the rubbish (yuck). Activities like this play havoc to our hands but which we don’t notice so that’s where there’s a need for a handcream that has both moisturising and anti-bacterial properties.

The timeline of our daily activities 

Tests have shown that the Vaseline 2-In-1 Hand Cream + Anti Bac reduces 99.9% of bacteria within 15 seconds of use (I like it!). The 2-In-1 also contains 5 essential moisturisers including collagen amino acids and glycerin so your hands feel mositurised, which is great as normally anti bac gels are really drying. The cream also seems lovely, a bit like an apple smell and will definitely encourage you to use it more because it is so moisturising! Maybe it will mean I get fewer colds in the winter as I am cleaning my hands more often?! Let’s see!

What are your thoughts on this new concept, will you be trying? For £3.29 I would definitely recommend as it keeps your hands clean most importantly and also mositurised. A must if you live in London and travel by tube or work in an office typing on dirty keyboards. Gross!
