Sunless Tanning - How To Get The Perfect Natural Looking Tan

As someone with very fair skin, I've tried a lot of products to help me achieve that all over bronzed look that is usually only achievable with a week of sunbathing on an exotic holiday. Over the years I've gone from tanning a lovely golden brown to not tanning at all. Maybe it's the hormone changes after having children - who knows? But for some reason, once I got past my teens, I stopped tanning - and when on holiday I usually went straight to the red stage. The dangerous stage.

Two Minute BeautyTime: The Salvatore Ferragamo Mini Signorina Collection

Two Minute Time is focused on one of my much loved brands of perfume today. I've talked about Salvatore Ferragamo fragrances multiple times, and my love affair with them started after a close friend introduced me to Signorina Misteriosa. The perfect scent for musk lovers, I'd never smelt anything like it. It was to me, the definition of sexy and sultry and for that reason I've always had a bottle on the go - and always one as a back up too.

Brand Focus: Laura Geller

Laura Geller.

One American brand I rate highly and think are way under rated. I'm forever recommending their highlighters, loving their lippies and at Christmas I love their Holiday Sets. I think more people should try their products, because once they do, they'll be hooked - just like I was. I love when brands produce amazing products in quick succession, just as Laura Geller have recently, because it means I can do a thorough Brand Focus piece. Which are some of my favourites to write!

Summer Scents - Matching Your Perfume To Your Home Fragrance

When it comes to fragrance we all have scents that evoke memories and transport us to another place for a moment or two. Whether it's the aftershave your first boyfriend used to wear, or the perfume your Nanna used to always buy you at Christmas while you were growing matter what the memory is, scent has a way of allowing us to time travel, even if just for a moment.

Time For A Little Hair TLC

When it comes to my hair, I have to be really cautious about the products I use. My hair is super fine and thin, but there's a lot of it (so my hairdresser tells me!) Which means that I feel like I have the flattest hair in the world, and serums, masks and things like that can be great for encouraging growth and strengthening my hair - but they instantly make my locks look even flatter. Which isn't a good look on anyone, let's be honest!

Getting The Summer Glow Using The New Bare Minerals Crystalline Glow Collection

If there was one thing I wasn't expecting on a dreary Friday afternoon, it was a gorgeous pink box to be delivered. Anything in a pink box instantly makes me happy because hey, this girl loves pink - have you seen my Instagram feed?! Anyway, upon opening it, the excitement got real. The lovely folks at Bare Minerals had released a rose gold themed, limited edition collection called Crystalline Glow and it is everything I love about make up. And as a girly-girl anything with a rose gold focus wins my heart quickly.

Getting In Shape for Summer

When I first heard about So Shape, I didn't really pay much attention, but the more I heard and saw, the more intrigued I became. Slowly I began to start wondering if something like So Shape could work for me? I've always been a bit cynical of fads and weight loss programs, probably because in all honesty, I hadn't felt like I needed them before. I've always had a high metabolism so if anything, I spent years struggling to put weight on. But that changed for me when I had my second child.
