Pamper day with Duck and Dry

Last week, I headed to two different Duck and Dry stores for a beautiful pink Gel manicure and a big bouncy Blow dry.

I first headed to the Duck and Dry Express on Oxford street, where they gave me the nicest shade of pink in a Gel mani.

After that, I then walked 10 minuets down the road to the newest Duck and Dry in Mayfair. The store, just like the other Duck nd Dry’s was super cute and girly.

I enjoyed a lovely cup of peppermint tea while then getting my hair blow-dried. The service was amazing and I felt like a princess watching my hair go so big and bouncy. The curls then last me for the whole weekend which was great as I didn’t need to redo it once.

Duck and Dry express

Last week I visited Duck and Dry Express and got a blog dry and pedicure. It was super easy popping in and the whole experience was very efficient and I loved the result of my hair and nails.

The staff were super friendly and despite being in a big busy shop, the treatments felt really personal and relaxing.

Over all I loved my experience with Duck and Dry express and I think the photos speak for themselves how great the final result turned out ūüôā I’ll be back again soon enough! Check them out if you live in London or come down for a weekend.

New Ted Baker Est.88 Fragrance

The temperatures in London recently have really gone over a cliff ¬†but I for one will not be beaten by the cold. You’ll still see me out and about¬†in¬†the streets of London with my head held high (albeit in a wooly¬†hat) and a spring in my step as if spring itself is just waiting round the corner.¬†

Last week I received a fantastic new Ted Baker fragrance¬†–¬†Est. ’88 and have been enthusiastically using it every day since. The smell of the perfume is citrus and floral with top notes of mandarin,¬†and¬†petigrain teamed with spicy cardamom. It can’t¬†help¬†but¬†help to¬†bring a smile to my face whenever I wear it. This ¬†perfume has such a very fresh smell to it, such as lush green stems¬†and is so delicate and beautiful and in no way overpowering with its subtle notes of rose, lily and neroli.

Furthermore I’m loving the ethos behind this product, being inspired by and created for a new generation of empowered women. It certainly lets me buy into that sense of being modern feminine and powerful with the undertone of soft woods and amber. Since I have started wearing it I have had friends and even ¬†strangers coming up and asking me what perfume I am wearing. Which I think says it all..

The perfume comes in two different sizes and the 30ml (£30) comes in handy for my nights out as I can just shove it in my smaller bag and I have the 100ml (£50) one on my dressing room table.  For me, this would make the perfect present, especially for Valentine’s Day. The wonderful smells of this fragrance combined with its super cute packaging (matte soft touch pink bottle, finished with a rose gold.

Silky piece of heaven

The temperature in London has certainly taken a massive dive recently and I for one have been dreading leaving my flat to go outside due to the icy conditions. However, I am also one to still like to dress up and not let the cold of winter from stoping me looking as cute as cute can be.

Yesterday I enjoyed a delicious brunch while still managing to keep my legs on display, due to my fantastic brand new Hedoine’ tights. You’d have to look closely though because it may not be obvious that I am even wearing tights as there isn’t a single ladder or seam in sight. If you’re wondering how that works and how these tights could be so neat and flawless, well its because they are made with ¬†the highest¬† quality yarns and innovative 3D knitting techniques on the market.

Wearing these tights is like wearing a silky piece of heaven and they are the most elegant item to enhance ¬†any outfit. Unlike some other tights I’ve previously owned I didn’t have to spend my day pulling them up and re-adjusting them, they just fit so perfectly.

For me, the real beauty of these tights is that  it looked like I wasn’t even wearing any. It means that they can be so versatile and worn with so many different looks and outfits. Whether it is going out for brunch with my friend (as I did in the photos above) or going to a black tie ball, whatever the occasion, I would completely trust these tights to not throw a surprise ladder in the works. 
There is a wide and interesting selection of different tights on the website and I honestly couldn’t recommend them enough.

New York

I’ve just got back from one of my favourite trips, not only of the year but of my life. I had an amazing time exploring New York with The blogger program and the other influencers they manage.

We flew to the states with United. It was my first time flying with this airline and it was a very pleasant journey. A couple of the other bloggers on the trip and myself made good use of the Champaign in the lounge before our flight and I watched two films before getting to America.
