Crabtree & Evelyn- Mothers Day!


I was very lucky to recieve some goodies from the lovely Crabtree & Evelyn, I thought I would create this post with mothers day in mind as these would make perfect gifts for the occasion. Crabtree & Evelyn have a range of products from perfume, soaps, biscuits and much more so they are a great place to get your mothers day gifts from. 

Black Sea Mud Seaweed Soap 
This soap contains all purifying and conditioning properties all design to restore your skin, the scent of this soap is very pleasant it smells like your by the sea as soon as you open it which personally I love the smell of the sea and the memories that brings. Although it is fragranced it doesn't feel too harsh on your skin it feels very smooth and silky and leaves your skin feeling amazing! Also can we just talk about the packaging for a minute, I absolutely love the black and white patterned design it makes a refreshing changed from the usual boring packaging. 

This is priced at £7 which I think is very reasonable and would make the perfect gift, you can find it here.


Rosewater Hand Therapy 100g 
This hand cream is a luxurious cream with a rosewater scent, containing numerous oils to ensure that your hands stay moisturised and hydrated whilst also ensuring your hands do not loose any moister. The scent of this again isn't too overpowering it is quite a subtle but still very pleasant scent were you can still smell the hint of rose coming through.This particular scent won a beauty award in 2015 so it is very well loved! This hand cream is also available in different scents.

This is priced at £16 for the 100g and there are other sizes available here.


Caribbean Island Wild Flowers Eau de Toilette
This Eau de Toilette claims to be a fruity yet floral fragrance, with the spider lily being at the centre of this fragrance blended with wild flowers, tropical citruses and blooming jasmine. Personally I get more of a floral than fruity tone from the scent, I love how fresh this scent is I think it would be perfect for summer time. It does wear off by the end of the day but I do tend to find that with most perfumes and Eau de Toilette's. 

This is available for £39 a bit pricey in my opinion considering the competition of high-end perfume being a similar price! This is available here.



Hope you enjoyed this post and it gave you some ideas for mothers day as its fast approaching so don't forget! Have a lovely week!

Luxury Home Accessories



I was recently sent over some beautiful home accessories to review and its safe to say I am delighted with them, so I hope you enjoy this post and it gives you some inspiration for your home. 

Nkuku Sawaya Glass Vase
First of all how beautiful is this vase, it has a rustic antique feel to it with the imperfect but gorgeous look. I think this piece is fabulous, it would spruce up any area of your home with its silver almost crackled effect. Personally I am using it as a vase with these pretty peonies as there my all time favourites but this could also be used a storage pot too, it would make a perfect statement without any flowers. I think this is very reasonably priced at £18.95 and could easily be mistaken for a lot more value, if you're interested in this can take a look here.




Nkuku Antique Designer Photo Frame
This is a antique style photo frame, I love these style photo frames because you can literally just put anything you want in them from something so simple as a feather to numerous items creating a collage style photo or you can simply just put one photo in it, I tried out the collage style for this photo and I really do like the idea of putting keepsakes inside the frame. This is the 4x6 size but these are available in three different sizes and would look quite cute with more than one next to each other.  This size is £14.95, this one being the cheapest and the price ranging up to £22.95 for the other sizes. You can find these here. 



I hope you liked the products I picked! Both are available online from Rooi a online store selling luxury living products so be sure to check them out for other gorgeous pieces.

You can find them here online.

Swiss Clinc Review






This is a skin renewal treatment is made by Swiss Clinic, that aims to get rid of fine lines, the appearance of pores and produce collagen. This treatment comes with two products, the serum and the skin roller that are both to be used together, the serum is applied and then the skin roller is then used to roll over your skin and do its magic which I will get into later on. 

Firstly before purchasing you have to decide which size skin roller you want, the size refers to the needle(not an actual full blown needle) in the roller. There is 0.2mm and 0.5mm, the 0.2mm is best for getting rid of spots, acne scars, eczema and preventing wrinkles whereas the 0.5mm is great for preventing ageing. 

The skin roller makes small micro channels into the skin to trigger a healing processes and increase collagen using the serum applied.  It claims to "Stimulate and renew the skin - from within and without. It reduces fine lines, wrinkles and scars, softens the skin, stimulates blood circulation, improves elasticity and reduces enlarged pores. This effective treatment also leaves your skin with a more even tone, makes it more resilient, and preserves its vitality and energy by slowing the skin’s ageing process." .

The Verdict
Firstly the after applying the serum I used the roller and I absolutely love it you just feel the little pins in your skin and I don't know why but it feels so satisfying rolling it on your face. Straight away it leaves your face feeling super soft, one thing I hoped this would do is make my pores look a little smaller as some on my cheeks are starting to be noticeably big and I was really surprised at how quickly it did this! I honestly feel like this helps brighten up your face and give you glow in your skin which for me is a big bonus with having dull skin. 


You can find Swiss Clinic here and it is currently on offer for £84 with free shipping so get your hands on this bargain.
