This is probably the most delayed post in history given that our holiday in Zante was three months ago and we have actually been away again since then! I thought i was still worth sharing though because i know i am often inspired by other peoples holiday photos and when i was looking into going to Zakynthos i couldn't find a single blog post about it.

Beautiful, talented and globally successful super-group The Saturdays recently embarked on a greatest hits arena tour to promote their new greatest hits album and Garnier have collaborated with them to produce a range of hair care products called Ultimate Blends.

My first favourite from August might be slightly premature because i only got it half way through the month but it was pretty much love on first use! St Tropez Gradual Tan Firming* (£20) is said to tan, tone, firm and moisturise in one. I can't really say if i noticed any toning or firming action yet - i

Jo Malone has always been one of those shops that i would go into, get a bit carried away and spray everything - LOVE everything and come away empty handed and totally confused! The range is so amazing and i liked the sound of so many of their fragrances that i could just never make up my mind which i wanted.

I was recently lucky enough to be sent the Avene Soothing Hydrating Serum (£17.00) from Escentual.com to try out. I've only been using it for a few days so i can't review it on full yet but on first impressions it’s a really lovely serum. If you’re not familiar with Avene, they are a French skincare brand

I'm loving the pastel-but-bright nail trend for this spring and the two latest additions to my ever growing nail varnish collection come from Maybelline Color Show (£2.99) in Nebline - a milky baby pink and Love Lilac - a lilac with a really subtle blue shimmer running through it. Both colours look gorgeous on the nails
