The act of self-care and wellbeing has never been more prominent in our minds than right now. This forced down time during self-isolation and lockdown has given us the opportunity to breathe but has also encouraged me to brush up on some beauty rituals that I might otherwise set aside due to the lack of time. Self-care is not only good for optimising skin health, but the uplifting rituals can be just as good for our mental hea...


Being a parent and a multi-business owner I really struggle with making salon appointments and sometimes even keeping them is sometimes an issue… because as Mum’s we know our little ones can sense when we have a busy day ahead of us and they end up ill and off school.

Last year was a pretty tough time for me, I really struggled and was diagnosed with anxiety and severe depression so, as you cam imagine, I let my body image go....

Since I was 16 I’ve always had a love hate relationship with my hair. At this age I had beautiful, long natural hair which when dried naturally had a gorgeous natural bounce to it. It was also at this age where I had the ingenious idea of dying my hair blonde... my hair was dark brown (as I write this I’m shaking my head in disgust). My hairdresser at the tim...


I’ve always been interested in crystals and seem to be drawn to their invisible pull. Victoria Beckham uses them backstage at her fashion shows. Miranda Kerr places them in her meditation come yoga room. Katy Perry sleeps with one in her hand at night. Welcome to the increasingly popular world of healing crystals. 

Having first risen to popularity during the 1970s, crystal healing has made a resurgence in recent years,with the...


If you haven't heard of Bondi Sandi before, you must have been hiding under a rock. I've been an avid user of self tans for well over 10 years now (not giving my age away at all here) and I would certainly say I'm some what of a seasoned professional in the art of self tan now. 

If you search for the Bondi Sands tanning range online, you'll really struggle to find a bad review and that just says it all, the internet is a breedi...


I was recently invited along to a bloggers event at Benito Brow Bar situated within Debenhams at Intu Metro Centre. Needless to say that when I was invited to this event I jumped at the chance as my brows were in desperate need of some TLC. 

I was greeted by the Brow specialists and the area manager, which turns out I've know her for years from working within the beauty industry. I was made to feel very welcome and was offered...


I'm not going to lie, I last got my hair highlighted in early November last year and, needless to say, it was in dire need of some TLC. I've been going to Lacey's Hair & Beauty now for years for my beauty treatments however ever never actually had my hair cut and styled there. 

Lacey's Hair & Beauty is an independentantly run salon which is based in Dunston and have recently opened another beauty only salon within Whickham. Thi...


I would like to think I'm fairly good at doing my make up. I can do a mean smokey eye and I'm putting into practise doing a cut crease, those things are hard in the beginning, but my down fall is doing my eye brows. I always seem to do them too thick, one too big, one too small... Que my makeup lesson at fenwicks. 

Walking in a was rather nervous, I'm such a fuss pot when it comes to my makeup and as a rule of thumb, I never le...
