The Harrods British Eccentrics Garden for the Chelsea Flower Show

May 24, 2016

Harrods has partnered with landscape gardener Diarmuid Gavin to design “The Harrods British Eccentrics Garden” for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016 and as you would expect from Harrods – it is fab. It even features twirling trees and pop up flower beds – have a quick watch of this video as it shows you all the details…

The garden is inspired “by kinetic sculpture from some of the UK’s most imaginative minds. Elaborate machinery performing simple tasks has become associated with Britishness, thanks to the likes of W. Heath Robinson, Rowland Emett and, of course, the founders of Aardman animations. The scene is also active, entertaining and playful. Every quarter of an hour, the garden engages in a short performance.”

St Tropez In Shower Gradual Tanner

May 24, 2016

I would like to think that I am a so called English Rose, but in reality I am just vampire white. I know that if I am to get my legs and arms out at all this summer, then I need some colour and quick! Some people look great (and more importantly don’t care) if they don’t have a tan, but personally I just feel better with a bit of colour. Especially when getting the old pasty legs out – it just makes me feel that little bit more confident.

So I thought I would try this new St Tropez In Shower – a gradual tanning lotion that you apply in the shower. I have used the standard St Tropez a lot in the past so I knew it would work – I just did not think it would be as good as it is!

It is very easy to use and in fact I would say it is almost idiot proof! I say this because my sister has always been rubbish with fake tan – she is too haphazard in her application and just slaps it on… wondering why she has patches and streaks! I told her that this is safe even for her to use and that is saying something!

To use it you just wash as normal and I then turn the shower off which I think makes it easier. You just apply it straight onto wet skin wherever you want it – rubbing it around so it lathers slightly (that’s how you see where you have put it). Then wash your palms and wait for 3 minutes. Once your 3 minutes is up rinse it off, get out and pat dry – don’t wash it off, just rinse.

I have used it 5 times now (over about 8 days) and I am really pleased with the colour and easy application. I will be using this all summer – 100%.

So if you too need a bit of colour then give this a go – I would definitely recommend it. You can get it over at LookFantastic for £11.60 (usual price £14.50).

Have a good morning and I shall be back soon xx

Olivier Rousteing teams up with NikeLab

May 23, 2016

Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing has teamed up with Nike to bring us – “NikeLab x Olivier Rousteing: Football Nouveau” collection. I love the very distinct look of Balmain and was actually a bit surprised when I heard that Olivier Rousteing was teaming up with Nike – just because I would not have really associated him with sportswear I suppose. However just like everything else he does – it is fabulous!

Delightful Finds, Too Cute

Too Cute

May 23, 2016

Did you know that “panda hugger” is an actual real life job? I didn’t either until recently. How amazing would that be to just cuddle baby pandas all day – where do I apply?! Imagine how chilled and happy your life would be.

As I know most of you will not be experiencing that kind of joy this Monday morning, here is a dose of cuteness to brighten up your day…
