Caudalie Vinosource | New Products & Packaging.

Caudalie's Vinousource range has had a pretty makeover that you may have seen rolling out into the shops over the last few weeks and I am a big fan ; it's PINK. All the shades of pretty pink and I kinda love the range even more now. If you haven't tried the Caudalie Vinosource range it's kind of there go-to staple/ basic hydration / for everyone kind of stuff. I have used the Soothing cream in my makeup kit for YEARS as it's just a cream I know will suit everyone, is great for a sensitive skin/redness and will also give foundation and base a beautiful sheen. French pharmacy skincare fans, take note.

The Foodie Series #1 | SushiSamba, London.

This is the first in my 'Foodie Series' /Reviews of places I eat. I am hugely into eating out, good food & wine and over the years I have eaten in some amazing restaurants from the michelin-starred, the trendy, the pop-ups, the street food, overated, underated and anything in between. I was never going to really introduce food onto this blog, but it just makes sense as I love eating out so much, and will only be a once in a while kinda vibe. What spurred me on was actually a really bad meal I had in SushiSamba last weekend. I promise you, they won't be all this shady but I have to be honest and I would hate for other people to waste theit hard-earned ca$h in over rated places. 
Please excuse the not-so-great-snaps off my iphone ; like I said I was never going to turn this into a 'review' but after my experience I thought I would.

Summary : Hugely disappointing. Overpriced. Won't ever go back. Can you not.

Food Type: Japanese
Location: Bishopsgate, London EC1Y. Nearest Tube Liverpool Street
Courses: 3
Price: Approx £70 per head (inc wine)
Book Ahead? A must. It's like SO trendy YAH.

Skincare Discussion | Rosacea & Raising Awareness

April has been Rosacea Awareness Month and there has been various events, discussions and online articles highlighting this often-misunderstood skin condition. #ExperienceMyRosacea has been the hashtag used over social media where people have been invited to join discussions, gather information amd raise the awareness of the condition.

There is currently no UK charity for Rosacea which is suprising considering there is such huge support for other skin conditions including Exczema, Acne & Psorasis. I think one of the main problems with Rosacea is that the cause is still not fully understood so it can be diffucult to help and there is no definate cure. Outstanding considering 1 out of 10 of the population are thought to suffer from some from of Rosacea.

Coming Soon | Bareminerals New Skincare.

Bareminerals is a brand probably known best for it's innovatove foundation formulas, the first mainstream mineral makeup brand and a huge line of great makeup & colour. I have tried a few of their skincare bits in the past, and it didn't impress me so much. It wasn't a dislike, just I wasn't 'wowed' by it and nothing really stood out. I think this is all about to change. Bareminerals have spent a long time researching, reformulating and creating a whole new line of skincare, and from my first impressions, I am very impressed.

Spring Scents | The Current Fragrance Shelfie.

I always like to update my fragrance edit and Spring is when I start picking up some of my more lighter and fresher scents, along with my trusty favored rich and musky perfumes. A bit about me and my fragrance preference ; I really don't like sweet or fruity fragrances of ANY description, never have & never will. I am all about interesting, unique scents that can be floral if they have a musky base somehwere, but my ultimate kind of scents has to be the ambers, musk, oud...and I have an obsession with orange, orange blossom, orange oil.....just orange.
