Being a child of Caribbean descent Palmers Coca butter was one of the main beauty staples in my house (No one was leaving the house with no dry arms and legs), so of course I jumped at the chance to check out their award-winning Coconut Oil Formula range which includes a Body Lotion, Hand Cream, Body Cream and Body Oil.
I had been incorporating coconut oil in to my skin and hair care regime for some time now so it’s nice to cut out the middleman as brands are realizing the many benefits of including coconut oil in their products.
The Coconut Oil Formal aside from smelling amazing and leaving my skin feeling soft supple and moisturized without feeling greasy consist of mainly ethically and sustainably sourced raw, organic Coconut Oil which is infused with ancient Polynesian sacred oil, Tahitian Monoi Oil and is also free from Parabens, phthalates, mineral oil.
My favorite product from the range is the Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Body Oil as I loved the way the oils absorbed into my skin quickly and easily without feeling sticky and left me smelling heavenly.
I also like that fact that you can add a few drops to your bath to make your bathing experience a little bit more luxurious.
Palmer’s Award-winning Coconut Oil Formula range is available for purchase at Boots, Sainsbury’s, Feel Unique and Amazon.

I was fortunate enough to be invited to the River Island Style Studio Valentine’s Blogger Event which gave me the opportunity to finally experience the Style Studio and I’m sure it won’t be my last.
Never heard of the Style Studio?
Well………Style Studio launched in the London and Birmingham flagship shops and offers personal, one-to-one bespoke styling services from retailer’s stylists for a 30 minute, one-hour or two-hour session giving customers the opportunity to find out about the latest trends and collections to, “discover their individual style.”
The Style Studio personal shopper lounge is a large luxurious space with comfy sofas and great lighting and massive fitting rooms, perfect if you wanted to bring your friends to give you the thumbs up on your outfit (Or hands down) there is even a bar in case you work up a thirst during your styling session or you need some liquid courage.
Oh and I have to mention ‘magic mirror’, this baby allows you see yourself in 360 degrees, compare outfit photos or even take selfies that you can upload to your social media or send to someone to get a 2nd opinion on your outfit.
The Valentines event was absolutely lovely I was able to network with loads of amazing bloggers and we were all treated to prosecco cookies and other nibbles yum!
The stylists picked out outfits for each blogger and we all tried on and strutted our stuff in front of the magic mirror we also played some party games none of which I won and talked to the stylists about the collection.
If you would like to give the Style Studio a whirl you can make an appointment via the website: www.riverisland.com
After posing for Marc Jacobs campaign last year Willow Smith is now the face of trendy American sock company Stance Socks.
The talented teen will also be collaborating on a capsule collection of nine unique colourful, patterned which will be released later this year
Stance Socks who previously worked with Rhianna announced the collaboration on its website.
'Singer, actress, dancer and Entrepreneur, there’s simply no box large enough to contain the force that is Willow. With a confidence and sense of style that feels at once unfathomably fresh and yet well beyond her years, she has a self-possessing originality that makes it feel futile to even mention her age because she transcends it.'
'We’d call Willow Smith the ultimate provocateur of artistic expression, but even a label like that feels a little too finite for someone so impossible to define.'
None of young star's sock designs are simple - or meant to be hidden inside shoes, for that matter.
Let’s face it guys when we wake up its dark. When we leave work its dark, its overcast, it’s rainy and even though spring is on the horizon its not here yet. We need to take things in to our own hands!
Brighten up your wardrobe with the most cheerful colour in the rainbow Canary, lemon, citron, and marigold. I’m talking about yellow baby already spotted in the SS16 catwalks shows of Burberry and Christopher Kane this trend is going to be major this summer so why not get a head start.
Whether you colour block or just opt for a pop this colour will defiantly brighten up your day.

Described on Louis Vuitton’s website as: “A modern and unexpected reinterpretation of a fashion show, this exhibition, following on from SERIES 1 and SERIES 2, invites visitors to discover Nicolas Ghesquière’s inspirations for his fourth ready-to-wear show as the Artistic Director for women’s collections at Louis Vuitton.”
I was completely blown away by the innovation and the thought that went behind Louis Vuitton Series 3. Every aspect of the design process was portrayed from the beginning roots of the Louis Vuitton design and creation process to modern day with all the technical advances that have been picked up along the way. Actual artisan from Vuitton were flown in to demonstrate the assembly process for Ghesquière’s and visitors were able to ask them questions, there was a virtual catwalk show and the ultimate Louis Vuitton wardrobe.
