With the Christmas office party just around the corner and cold Winter night’s, it got me thinking about my beauty essentials for the festive season. So today I thought I would share with you all, what’s on my list of beauty must have’s.


1. STRUCTURE Smoothshock

At the top of my list has to be this luxurious foam packed full of Abyssinian oil, which not only smells incredible, but also leaves my hair super soft and conditioned. I love using this when I am styling my hair, as it ensures my hair isn’t left feeling dry.

2. Festive Nail Polish

Red, berry, glitter or perhaps some festive nail art in the form of Santa, Rudolph or Frosty the snowman.

3. Signature Scent

This year my go to scent’s have included ‘Wood Sage and Sea Salt’ by Jo Malone, ‘Touch of Pink’ by Lacoste and ‘Si’ by Giorgio Aramani.

4. Naked Heat Eye Palette

This may be a palette for Summer, but I have loved using the brighter tones, to help create a warmer look for the colder season.

5. Meltdown Make-up remover

It is probably the last thing you feel like doing after a night out, but taking care of your skin is incredibly important, as it helps prevent ageing and provides the perfect foundation to your look.

6. All Nighter setting spray

Don’t forget some setting spray to make sure your make-up stays put after evening on the dance floor.

7. XO Balm

This multi-purpose product has you covered when it comes to dry cracked hands and chapped lips.

8. Sparkle

No Christmas outfit would be complete without a bit of added sparkle, this can be jewellery, a sequined top or perhaps a new clutch to hold all of your beauty essentials in.



I hope you all have a wonderful week.




What’s on your list this year for your Christmas beauty essentials?

Glorious Summer days filled with sunshine and freshly cut grass often mean that your calendar is jam-packed with weddings, festivals, birthday parties and christenings or sun soaked holidays in the Mediterranean. Whilst this can be a very exciting season, it does also mean that your hair is often neglected and left forgotten about.  Factor in a pre-holiday session at the salon and your hair can be left feeling tired and dry prior to you even jetting off, to those Pina coladas and days sunning yourself by the poolside.

Whether you are a natural blonde like me or you are a bleached blonde and you want to invest in some stunning hair products, that deliver salon worthy results instantly, then make sure you don’t leave without these three hair essentials.


Blonde Life Brightening Shampoo

After falling in love with this simple but gorgeous packaging, I thought I would be left disappointed with the contents. But the first thing I actually noticed was how thick and rich the shampoo was, the consistency was just right and meant that I didn’t need to use a lot despite having fairly long thick hair.

Blonde Life Brightening Conditioner

After soaking in the tub for a few minutes, I rinsed and lathered my hair as instructed and then massaged this bio advanced peptide complex in – apparently that means it reconstructs damaged strands and targets hair that has probably seen better days. Of course if you are going to be Blonde then you want to have gorgeous, luscious locks and that is where Joico’s blend of exotic ingredients come in to ensure you are left with a gorgeous shine that is guaranteed to turn heads.

Blonde Life Brightening Masque

This masque made my hair feel incredible and this little extra treatment also felt like the perfect way to round off these three rather luxurious hair care products. Overall I was pleasantly surprised with Joico’s new range and I think I may just have to enjoy a nice candlelit bath later – any excuse to indulge myself again.


They say Blondes have more fun which may be true, but that doesn’t mean that your crowning glory need suffer. After all, us Blondes deserve nothing but the best when it comes to hair care.
