Natural Beauty

With A-listers like Miranda Kerr and David Gandy still swearing by the benefits of Rosehip oil, it’s no wonder this most sought-after ingredient is still a huge skincare buzz in the industry. One range which stands out from the rest, RosehipPLUS, comes hot off the shores of Australia and we particularly love their Rosehip Oil (30ml for £15). Enriched with Vitamin A, which works to fight the signs of ageing, Vitamin E – a powerful anti-inflammatory, Vitamin C – this gives skin antioxidant benefits, Omega 3,6 & 9, Lycopene and Beta-Carotene, this wonder oil can be used as a facial oil to fight the signs of ageing by minimising the appearance of fine lines and promoting skin elasticity or reduces the appearance of stretch marks and scars with its hydrating properties.

Dating Your Luxury Fragrance First

An ingenious new concept by The Fragrance Shop means that you can now flirt with a different scent until you find the one. Each month, chose the latest designer fragrance of your choice from a list of 200+, and a team of Scentaddict experts will carefully fill a luxury reusable 8ml atomiser (which equates to approximately 100 sprays) with your chosen fragrance and package it ready to be sent to you within 14 days.  If you fall in love with your new scent, you can redeem the £12 subscription cost against the price of full sized bottle either in-store or online using a unique discount code within your box. The anytime cancellation policy means you aren’t tied together forever, but we think this is a perfect proposal for those of us who don’t like to forsake all other scents for good. Sign up at

Helping Children Love Themselves

Children’s Mental Health Week 2018 (5-11 February) is highlighting the importance of ‘Being Ourselves’ inviting everyone – children, young people and adults – to come together and celebrate the unique qualities and strengths in themselves and others. Helping your child build self-esteem and recognise both their own unique strengths and qualities and those of the people around them will help them build self-awareness and make better connections with others. #BeingOurselves.
