&Other Stories Liquid Foundation

&Other Stories are a brand I'm sure you all know and love. I have so many bath and body products from their range and they all smell absolutely amazing, I'm yet too try much from their makeup range but if there are any products you can recommend be sure to let me know in the comments below. I have recently been trying out the &Other Stories Liquid Foundation which is available in 7 shades, my shade is in 'Crêpe Beige' which matches my skin tone perfectly. The &Other Stories Liquid Foundation is a high pigmented foundation which is carefully composed to leave you with a soft, demi-matt finish. You can simply use it on it's own for a full coverage look or simply add a few drops to your moisturiser for a lighter coverage. I personally like to use it on it's own for a higher coverage but I have also mixed it with my moisturiser a few times to see the outcome, the foundation mixes in perfectly with moisturiser and it gives a lovely natural no makeup makeup look. The formula is super creamy and very pigmented without looking or feeling heavy on the skin. This foundation has a medium coverage along with a lovely demi-matt finish which I absolutely love during these warmer months as I tend to get quite oily in the day time. I absolutely love that the formula and consistency of the foundation means you don't need to use much product at all, just remember a little goes a long way. I've been really impressed with the &Other Stories Liquid Foundation, it's very pigmented and I love the demo-matt finish, it gives me a flawless and natural look which is perfect for the summer time.
You can shop all 7 shades of the &Other Stories Liquid Foundations below.

Nourish Kale Enzymatic Exfoliator

The Nourish Kale Enzymatic Exfoliator is a multi tasking product, it can be used as a cleanser, mask or facial which helps provide you with the optimum cleansing system for your skin. Nourish Kale Enzymatic Exfoliating Cleanser features pomegranate enzymes which help to gently exfoliate and reveal a smoother, healthier complexion while the organic kale extract helps to increase suppleness. The Nourish Kale Enzymatic Exfoliator is 81% Organic and is rich in antioxidant betacarotene and vitamins C & K. The kale extract helps to protect your skin from damaging free radicals caused by stress and pollution. This amazing little gem helps to exfoliate your skin along with hydrating and nourishing it leaving you with a smoother and healthier appearance. As I mentioned you can use this multi-tasking product in three ways as a gentle cleanser which I simply massage gently onto wet skin and then rinse off with warm water and a muslin cloth. I personally love using the Nourish Kale Enzymatic Exfoliator as a daily exfoliating mask, I simply smooth a thick layer over dry skin and leave it for around 2-5 minutes, I will then rinse off the product with warm water. Using this as a face mask honestly leaves my skin unbelievably soft and smooth to touch. You can also use the Nourish Kale Enzymatic Exfoliator as a weekly revitalising facial, simply apply the product to dry skin and leave for around five minutes. Then go ahead and spritz your skin with some toning mist or water to soften the product, you should then gently massage the product in circular motion and then rinse off with warm water. I've been really impressed with the Nourish Kale Enzymatic Exfoliator, my skin feels super soft and supple after use. The exfoliating side of this multi tasking cleanser truly gives my skin a nice soft massage leaving it nourished and smooth to the touch. I absolutely love that it's a exfoliating product you can use every single day as it's not at all harsh on the skin. You can purchase the Nourish Kale Enzymatic Exfoliator below. Be sure to let me know in the comments below if you use any products from the Nourish range?.

An Overnight Stay At The Malmaison Hotel In Brighton

Brighton is my number one choice of staycation, escaping the city and heading down to the seaside for weekends away is truly something I cherish. I love discovering new places and staying in new hotels, I recently stayed at the Malmaison Hotel in Brighton and we were really impressed with our stay so I thought I would share my experience with you all. I'm sure many of you have heard of the Malmaison Hotels which are in various locations such as London, Oxford, Manchester, Birmingham and many more. The Brighton Malmaison is fairly new and is in the perfect location in Brighton, offering amazing views of the Marina. It has 70 rooms which all have amazing and unique interior, me and my sister stayed in the 'Mal Club Sea View' room which was honestly a very special experience. The interior is incredible from the unique wallpaper and bright coloured chairs it truly has interiors of dreams. Every single room at the Malmaison has a well stocked mini bar and a lovely king sized bed which meant we had the best nights sleep ever, the bed was definitely one of my favourite parts about this overnight stay it was hugeee and so so comfy. The Mal Club Sea View room also came with lovely added extras which included bath robes, complimentary slippers and the dreamiest smelling shampoo and shower gel. Our room over looked the Marina which was lovely, waking up to clear blue skies and listening to the sea was so peaceful and relaxing. They also offer free wifi, 24 hour room service and a same day laundry service. The entire interior of the Malmaison is chic, modern, sleek and very quirky, you'll love it!
The Malmaison Brighton has a lovely restaurant called the 'Chez Mal Brasserie' where we enjoyed the most divine meal, they have an amazing menu which you can view on their website at www.malmaison.comThe brasserie at Malmaison Brighton serves classic Mal dishes with flare and skill, mixing French style with generous British portion sizes and modern American and Asian influences. You can enjoy New York Strip Steaks with homemade steak sauce or a whole host of delicious dishes. You can also enjoy dinner and drinks on the terrace which overlooks the Marina. The service was absolutely incredible and the restaurant has such a relaxing and luxurious vibe. The Chez Mal Brasserie is also open to the public not only those who are staying at the hotel so if you're in Brighton and fancy an amazing breakfast, lunch or dinner then I highly recommend heading down to the Malmaison for a divine dinning experience. The menu actually changes every season as the food is sourced within the UK so the Malmaison always likes to ensure every dish compliments the season which is pretty cool. There's also an amazing bar at the Malmaison called 'Chez Mal Bar' again the interior is so dreamy and truly a bloggers dream. There's a massive light box on the wall which I got way too excited over. The Chez Mal Bar is spacious, light and very relaxing. Enjoy your morning coffee or a few afternoon/evening drinks with friends, it's honestly a must have if you're a fan of scrumptious cocktails and a friendly atmosphere. They also offer an Afternoon Tea which I've been thinking of booking for a while now. The afternoon tea is served in the Chez Mal Lounge and is the ideal setting for a classic afternoon tea. So treat yourself or a loved one to a classic luxurious afternoon tea at the Malmaison hotel in Brighton you will be amazed by the interior and views from the terrace. If you are headed to Brighton this year I definitely recommend booking a stay at the Malmaison.

Make It Personal With Bio-Extracts Skincare


I’m always on the hunt for that perfect skincare solution that gives my skin the full benefits it truly needs. I have recently been trying out a new skincare regime and I've been very impressed with the results. Let me introduce you to Bio-Extracts, a vegan skincare brand who offer an at home personal skincare lab experience. They use the latest biotechnology to develop creams and boosters for you to personally combine at your home laboratory while delivering maximum results. The Bio-Extracts system is the ultimate personalisation where you can create solutions to suit your own skin each and every day. They know that no skin type is the same therefore they have designed an easy customisable and highly effective skincare solution. The range feature several moisturisers designed especially for individual skin types from rich, light, normal and delicate. Bio-Extracts moisturisers use a Lamellar System which is a system of natural liquid crystals formulated to imitate the structure of our own skin. The Lamellar technology acts like a patch on your complexion, on application it locks in hydration and act's as a second skin which leaves the skin feeling instantly refreshed and rehydrated leaving you with soft and supple looking skin.

The Story Of Bio-Extracts - "Over the centuries, generations of mothers would pass on their acquired knowledge to their daughters. Such knowledge often related to their hobbies and interests, domestic skills but most importantly health and beauty regiments. A combination of all these elements is what underlies the story of how Bio-Extracts came to be. The work of Marina would educate her daughter about cosmetics whilst Irina was completing her biosciences degree at University College London. Coming from generations of award winning scientists, the pair decided to take rigorous, scientific approach to plant based skincare. They set out on a mission to find the best candidates for potential ingredients from all over the world, whilst simultaneously exploring and developing the best techniques for maximising the effectiveness of the active fractions of the plants as well as securing optimum concentration and stability of the active molecules. Being a mother and a daughter who frequently share clothing and accessories, they were quick to acknowledge that one size cannot fit all, especially when it comes to skincare. This is not only because everyone has different types of skin, but also because our skin as a living issue changes form day to day. Thought the creation of the Bio-Extracts home skincare lab, the founders found a way for everyone to share in their passion for science and skincare as well as love of nature, all whilst giving people the opportunity to create their own customise skincare solutions. Bio-Extracts encompasses cutting edge science in all of its products, ensuring an advanced delivery systems and maximum results. Bio-Extracts utilises innovative biotechnology to harness highly purified ingredients derived form the active fractions of the plant extracts, to deliver exceptional benefits to the skin. Bio-Extracts allows you to tailor make your own skincare solutions with out home skincare lab to suit the ever changing needs of your skin"
I have recently been trying out the Bio-Extracts 'Delicate' Cream which provides an ultimate solution for skin hydration from day to night. The Delicate Cream is developed with the Multi-Lamellar System which is the most effective way to deliver actives to the skin, it is designed to restore it's barrier function while preventing water loss along with calming and soothing the skin. It dramatically improves hydration and protects the skin from external irritants. I simply use this morning and night on cleansed skin. I will also mix in my chosen Bio-Extracts Booster depending on how my skin is feeling that day. The Delicate Cream is fragrance free which delivers a more gentle experience for those with sensitive or easily irritated skin. It's unique texture is non greasy and instantly absorbs into the skin which is always a plus for me. I absolutely love the feel and look of my skin after using the Bio-Extracts Delicate Cream it instantly hydrates my skin leaving it more plumped and soothe to touch. 
Make it personal with the Bio-Extracts Boosters, simply mix and match the Bio-Extracts Boosters with your chosen Bio-Extracts Cream to tailor to your own skin's need. There are nine boosters in the range, each booster is intended to fix a specific skin concern so you can create your very own personalised skincare routine. The boosters are super simple and easy to use, simply dispense 1-2 pre measured shots into your chosen moisturiser after you have dispensed both products onto the lid mix them together using your index finger. Apply the product to your face and neck and massage in using gentle circular movements until fully absorbed. I have been trying out three boosters from the range and have been loving the results so far.

The Glow Boost should be used with the Bio-Extracts chosen moisturiser for the most effective results.

Just after landing I was so much surprised to see that all people, men and women, children, old people are all covered with some strange makeup. I was quickly explained this is Thanaka, everyone indeed uses it because it answers all three major skin concerns in this country: sun protection, acne and skin lightening which they are all abscessed about! In the open market I managed to buy a piece of wood, which is the treatment is made of. Coming back home, I put the piece of wood through the lab and was amazed with the result, it turned out that Thanaka has a close relative in Europe and US - a willow tree which bark is seriously rich in a form of natural aspirin, great for the same skin problems: protection, exfoliation and anti-inflammation! That’s how the Clean to Clear was born."
The Bio-Extracts Advanced Eye Contour Collection is packed with targeted treatments to give the delicate eye area a dose of hydration. The Bio-Extracts Eye Contour Age Defying Cream is formulated with advanced biotechnology to provide hydration around the eye contour using their Multi-Lamellar System. This advanced eye cream is designed to hydrate and smooth your delicate eye area while leaving you with a firm and brighter eye contour. The Age Defying Cream helps to keep the eye area perfectly hydrated whilst helping to reduce dark circles and fine lines.

This delicate eye cream has many benefits such as instant hydration, it helps reduce dark circles and plumps the skin from within to help lift the eye contour. There are two Boosters in the Advanced Eye Contour collection one being the Brightening Boost and secondly the Lift & Firm Boost. They're super easy to use, simply choose your booster depending on how your eyes are looking that day and dispense one pump of Age Defying Eye Cream along with four shots of your chosen eye boost. Mix both products together and apply to the eye area, massage gently until the product is fully absorbed. 
The skin around the eye area is the thinnest on the entire body. Bio-Extracts Eye Contour Lift and Firm Boost is formulated to boost the skins elasticity and firmness to give a more plumped appearance. The Brightening Boost is developed to target the appearance of dark circles and puffiness, to promote a more bright, fresh and revitalised look.
