Give Fragrance Not Flowers This Mother's Day

As a Mummy, Mother's Day is a really special day for me. Having two boys, I feel like I've hit the jackpot as I adore being their Mummy. But I am also a daughter myself, so Mother's Day is dual-sided for me. I like to make sure my Mum has a really special day, and knows how loved she is, while also enjoying the same feeling myself with my children. It's definitely become more of a balancing act to fit both sides in, which is why the gifts we choose to give on Mother's Day are so much more important for us.

New In From GlamGlow

GlamGlow Supercleanse, GlamGlow, Supercleanse, review, Glam Glow

You all know how much I rave about GlamGlow and I have worked my way through a lot of their gorgeous mud masks and started trying their daily skincare bits and pieces too. Last on my list was the Dream Duo Overnight Treatment and then suddenly GlamGlow were blowing my mind again as they released some great new products in close succession. Being the addict that I am, I couldn't not try out the newness could I?!

The Tri-Active Facial At Clarins Spa

Recently on Instagram you guys will have seen me take you through my trip to the Clarins Spa in John Lewis, Cambridge. I had the most amazing morning getting pampered, and I felt so incredibly relaxed and refreshed when I came out. Being full-on with the blog these days is really taking it's toll, so I was in huge need of a pamper, and the newly revamped Clarins Spa was perfect for this!


Making Your Own Perfect Perfume For Mother's Day

You guys know that I love perfume, in fact, I try so many of them out, and I love to tell you all about my favourites. I've really opened my eyes to fragrances since founding Lady Writes, and perfume has become so much more than just a smell. The right perfume can transform your mood, uplift your spirits and allow you to recall a distant memory in the blink of an eye (or rather, the spritz of the bottle!)

5 I Won't Rebuy

As a beauty blogger I am constantly trying new products out. I have Holy Grail products that I wouldn't ever do without, a stash of things I love to use from time-to-time and also a box of things I won't use often but can't throw out. Having such a large make-up and beauty habit means that I also sometimes find things that don't work for me, and I like to be honest about those products too. I'm not just going to chat about the good and the great, you'll always find honest opinions on products from me - even when I feel they don't measure up!

Living For The Summer With Maison Margiela Replica Beach Walk

Maison Margiela, Replica, Beach Walk, review

When it comes to fragrances and perfumes, we've all got our trusty favourites and our lifetime staples haven't we? Those one's we'll never be without, and the ones we buy now and again. However for me, in the last few years since I started blogging about beauty full-time, fragrances and perfume have become a much broader topic for me. Prior to beauty blogging, I used to have lots of well known brands of perfume on my dressing table. But nothing bespoke, nothing significant - not in the sense that it was out of the ordinary. (Although, I should say that some of these to this day are still my staples, so I'm not knocking them!) It's just that in the last two years especially, I've found a whole new dimension to fragrances - so much more than perfumes, for me, I've realised that a bottle of fragrance can mean a memory, a reminder or something emotional. Because perfume isn't just about smell - it's about evoking a feeling too.

Too Faced Peaches & Cream Top Picks

Too Faced, Peaches & Cream, Top Picks, review

When Too Faced released their Peaches & Cream collection last year, I swooned. No, actually I didn't swoon, I fell head over heels just at the sight of the range. I am a HUGE Too Faced advocate and I have SO much from them in my make-up collection. In fact, I probably have more Too Faced than any other brand in my whole hoard. Yes, I'm a hardcore Too Faced fan. So, anyway, when I saw the new Peaches & Cream range, I couldn't wait to try it out.
