Musings of a self-confessed beauty addict from the heart of London!

Hello stranger!

Yes, you there.... HELLO!!! It's been a while and I'm very sorry for that. I cannot believe that my last appearance on Blogger was on the 10th November! I

'm so out of the loop, can you believe that I didn't even know what the new Chanel 2013 Spring collection looked like until yesterday? Yesterday! The blogging community has known since way before Christmas.

And by the way it's very nice indeed. All three eyeliners are calling to me as well as the new eye palette. 

I'm so behind.... *sobs*

Today I thought I'd kick my creative juices into flow and at the same time let you know about some products that may or may not change your life. There have been a few things over the last month or so that I've been practically idolising and it wouldn't be fair if you didn't know about them, right?


Just buy it, your skin will thank you for it. In fact Mr P thanks me for it, although he doesn't really know the reason why my skin is both silky and juicy (??) at the same time. I suppose I mean plumped up, rather than juicy, but it gives you an idea of what this gloriously golden oil does for your skin. It's part of Weleda's anti-ageing pomegranate line but just ignore the whole ageing element of it and just go for it, even if your in your twenties. The skin on our bodies is so neglected that we all need a bit of 'regeneration' in our body care.

Apply after showering and massage it into your skin. It's not one of those dry oils, it's a proper oil although it's not too heavy and sticky and I have no problem dressing right away. My skin just glows since I've been using this and it even looks firmer. Mr P thinks  I've been working out (which I have.... massaging myself is hard work).

It smells delicately fruity and clean and doesn't interfere with perfume. 100% natural. What's not to love? I bought mine at Planet Organic for £19.99 but Weleda is sold in so many places and so many countries, it shouldn't be hard to find. It's not cheap I know, but I don't believe that there are many better things you can put on your skin.

Next, LANCOME 'IN LOVE' DEWY MIST (for Spring 2013)

The product that I've been searching for my whole make-up wearing life. I love when my make-up has been on the whole day and kind of sets into my skin and becomes one with me. This spray gives me that look as soon as I put my make-up on, even if I've used powder. I hate my skin looking 'made up', somehow it lacks the radiance that I've been craving. This is radiance in a bottle. No shimmer, no cheap tricks, just a beautiful little bottle of orange blossom scented dew that kisses the skin with health. Spritz on after you make up or later on in the day to refresh make up for that youthful fresh skin you've been hankering after. I also use it before make up and it primes the skin by softening it. My only complaint is that it's limited edition and the bottle is too small. I'm using it too generously I think, but I can't help it. It's one of the most beautiful little products I've come across in a very long time and I'm going to need a back up bottle.

It's £22 (ouch!), but so worth it. Let's call it 'Princess spray'.

Following that, another Weleda PINE REVIVING BATH MILK

Warming, cooling, refreshing, relaxing, liberating! A bath of contrasts you might say. This is the only thing I've been using in my Sunday night baths for the last month. It's so restorative and leaves the bathroom smelling like it can heal you. Mr P likes it, it's pretty unisex. Nothing nasty in here, all natural goodness. You can feel like Cleopatra in a mountain forest for all of 20 minutes. Eyeliner and headress optional.

I picked this up from Planet Organic for £10.95. I reckon you can get between 6-10 baths out of it. I'm very generous so I'm nearing my final, and 6th, bath from this bottle. If you have a smaller bath or are just more restrained than me (not hard) then you can make it last longer.

Well my lovelies, I hope you'll forgive my absence and I apologise in advance for the next few months as I will be preparing for a show and my mind will be in LaLa land. Actually on that note, I've been thinking for a while that it might be interesting to write about beauty prep and make-up for stage performance, my routine and various looks and products that I employ. What do you think?

Don't forget to let me know what products have been rocking your world recently! 


  1. I am SO glad you are back! Thank you for these recommendations! I totally want to get some Weleda-goodness, but the uk-webshop wont ship it to Norway, so I guess I'll have to get the bath milk from somewhere else. They had the pomegranate body oil at LookFantastic, but I totally want a bath milk as well! Boo!

    Happy new year by the way!

    1. Hello Tora!! How are you?

      Thanks, it's nice to be back online :)

      I hope you can find the bath milk. If not, maybe something similar exists over there? If you find something lovely then please report back!

      Happy new year to you too x

    2. Hiii!! I found the body oil - which smells aaamaazing, but actually dries my skin in these (literally) zub-zero conditions, so it will have to wait for spring! But it feels great on the skin, mmm :)

      I also found a bath milk, the citrusy one. It smells like freshly zested lemons and oranges, it's incredible! No ,it seriously smells like citrus, there is no awkward synthetic scent at all. I love it!
      They were available at a norwegian web shop of all things, so pleased!

      So, thank you so much for these recommendations, and like I said - glad to have you back! :D Excited to see what else you are going to post about!
