So it’s October. Summer is a distant memory, as is your tan and your 3pm Margarita. It’s cold outside. More importantly, it’s dark at like 4pm. We need cheering up! It’s time to get our glitter on and have a sparkling month. And here’s how we are going to do this…
Let us spare a thought for all those minutes of our lives spent in the bathroom slapping on a moisturiser, an anti-wrinkle or a firming cream, lotion or potion in an effort to look our very best. Now, whatever our skin issue is – whether that be parched, aging, hangdog or just MEH – being pallid, thanks to this brilliant product, need not be one of them.
Clarins have created a self-tanner that can be mixed with any face care product that’s part of your daily skin care routine, to give you a gradual sun-kissed glow.
It’s suitable for all skin types, super-simple to use and can be tailored to your desired level by adding 1,2 or 3 drops. What’s not to love? Make your usual lotion or potion, a GLOW-tion with Clarins Radiance Golden Glow Booster today!
As we well know, diamonds are a girl’s best friend. And never more so, in the form of a delicious fragrance on their six-packed, hunk of a man. Or weedy little runt of a man – either way, diamonds are diamonds. And Giorgio Armani gives them to us in the form of his Emporio Armani Diamonds for Men EDT.
Created in 2008, the bottle was designed by Armani himself to look like a square cut diamond. My favourite shape of diamond thank you very much.
The fragrance opens with the sparkling citrus freshness of bergamot and smoky gaiac wood. Mid notes are cedar and vetiver with a fiery burst of Szechuan pepper. And last but not least, base notes are of cacao and amber.
Yada yada this means yummy. And as the saying goes, wearing it you can be like a diamond precious and rare, not like a stone, found everywhere.
Hows about some arm candy now. Some shimmering, glimmering very expensive looking arm candy.
What we have here is a rose gold plated bracelet by Pilgrim. Yes I said rose gold plated. Yes, it is £24. No I am not lying.
Pilgrim is a Danish brand that started its life by being sold at festivals. With our obsession with the word hygge (Danish word for enjoying the good things in life) and the famous sense of Scandinavian style – this piece is a must.
The bracelet is elasticated and made up of heart-shaped motifs, some embellished with faceted diamond-like stones, and all connected by small round beads. And very importantly, it is equally jealous-making whether worn with jeans or a cocktail dress.
I heart this. So should you.
And now, for the icing on your glittering October cake. Take your lips from daytime to playtime with this 3-piece collection of double-ended Marvellous Moxie® Lipglosses by Bare Minerals.
Each Lipgloss contains a softer shade for day on one end and a complimentary, punchier colour for some night-time va va voom on the other. Both glide on smoothly, plumping and moisturising your lips and leaving them with a gorgeous glistening shine.
The set includes:
Marvellous Moxie Lipgloss in Charmer & Spark Plug (ballerina pink & dusty pink pearl)
Marvellous Moxie Lipgloss in Show Off & Hot Shot (baby pink & flamingo pink)
Marvellous Moxie Lipgloss in Rebel & Stunner (pink mauve & pure magenta)
Now all there is left to say is – don’t be a sucker – PUCKER up with these!
