With the festive season fast approaching, now is the perfect time to buy something significant for that special person in your life. I think Astley Clarke's jewellery is hard to beat when it comes to their extensive selection of products, across all prices and finishes. However, for something that is more purse-friendly I love Asos and & Other Stories for beautiful, trend-led pieces that will last more than just one season. This post was inspired by the recent launch of Astley Clarke's Icon Nova collection - which I had the pleasure to wear during this shoot. The new 14kt rose gold jewellery collection is incredibly elegant and precious (as you'd expect) and inspired by astral explosions frozen in time.
Dark mornings and cold nights are upon us - whether we like it or not, so it's time to start planning our Fall wardrobe. Now, before you go on a shopping frenzy, I suggest going through your existing wardrobe and sell (or even better donate to a charity) anything that doesn't fit you any longer or that hasn't been worn in the past year. I, personally give a lot away or sell them on Depop. Then go online and see what styles and trends are in this season. I prefer to invest in classic, timeless pieces that will save me time and money in the long run - like a well-fitted coat, a pair of boots or a dress that I could wear for various occasions.
Who says you need to travel far for the perfect weekend getaway? We have been blessed with an incredible weather, so what better excuse to pack your bags and get yourself and your family away for a UK mini-break. Whether you're looking to spend the weekend basking in the sun, or you want to head to a serene countryside location, Sopwell House is the perfect place for you. This 4-star hotel has everything you need for a luxury spa break that won't break the bank. There is an indoor pool, steam room and sauna, not to mention an impressive selection of spa treatments available too. When you're done with the pampering, the hotel restaurant and brasserie offer up a host of delicious dishes, or for those after a tipple, there's the conservatory bar and the cocktail lounge.
I've had my 12-week scan, everyone knows our wonderful news, and now the reality is sinking in. We're going to have a baby! The first few months of pregnancy is a wonderful period. My baby is growing faster now than at any other time and my morning sickness and fatigue are now a thing of the past. Our gender reveal party is getting closer and my to-do list is getting longer. I can't even explain in words what I felt on the morning of the 2nd of June when I found out that I'm pregnant. I was bursting with excitement, but there was also an overwhelming feeling of not knowing what to do first or where to start. I also shed a few tears when I shared the exciting news with my husband.
A study shows that almost 90% of women suffer from the dreaded orange peel. Sadly, there is no quick fix or miracle cure for cellulite but it can definitely be reduced. And this is where the new Assome! 3-in-1 Ultrasonic Massager swoops in to save the day! Cellulite is a condition in which the skin has a dimpled appearance and occurs when fat deposits begin to push through layers of collagen fibers under the skin. Lack of exercise, fat and poor metabolism leads to cellulite so a healthy diet and working out helps reduce it. Over the years, I've used several targeted cellulite creams with little to no results, until recently when I've been introduced to the new Assome! Ultrasonic Massager - the first at home beauty tech system for our booties.
