My favourite Winter accesories

My winter wardrobe is finally coming together and my latest pieces are some gorgeous accessories from POWDER. They specialise in hats, scarves and gloves and the quality is outstanding. I find it so adorable being able to match fashion accessories with my toddler, as they also have a kids range. POWDER's beautiful collections make the perfect gift and their packaging is amazing and so pretty. The fabrics are super soft and come in a wide variety of colours and styles. Sofia and I are definitely ready for these cold London days with our cute soft pink accessories!

Love Brabantia at Home

Being a busy mum of three children and balancing blogging alongside family life can be quite tiring at times. This is why for me it's essential to have the most practical accessories at home that thrive in quality and style to make my work and life balance easier. Brabantia makes life at home a pleasant experience. Their famous ironing boards are sturdy and therefore I feel safe and secure ironing clothes. It takes half the time ironing a shirt and I don't have to iron as slowly as I would do on a less secure ironing board. Stylish accessories in the home are important as it adds character and charm. Brabantia have a wide selection of beautiful products in many different styles, prints and colours. What is particularly attractive is that you can match your kitchen or bathroom bin to your decor, as can be seen in my kitchen, in the photo below! More about the newIcon Pedal Bin can be seen here! My Mandala ironing board is the perfect size for the items of clothing I usually iron. It is slightly wider than any of my previous ironing boards, making ironing easier and less time consuming. For more about the Mandala board or to check out other stunning styles click here!

Sweetpea and Willow Blogger Event

I attended the Summer of Sweetpea blogger and press event which was abundant with design influencers. It was held on such a beautiful sunny day, with a gorgeous blue sky. Upon arrival I couldn't help notice the beautiful decor of balloons and flower arrangements created by the lovely women at Stems and Bows. Inside, the showroom lit up with super glamorous pieces of furniture, which were beautifully styled. Sweetpea and Willow has one of the prettiest and most glamorous showrooms I have been to. It was styled beautifully and the pieces on show were delightful, from the most stunning bespoke pieces such as headboards and sofas to the finest interior pieces. The showroom portrays a glamorous pick and mix of pieces to suit most tastes. Outside, there was delicious food on site provided by Dough & Deer, who served up stone baked pizza including a yummy chocolate filled one. The London Prosecco Co' were also there topping up everyone's glasses with sparkling cocktails.

Sweetpea and Willow's show room is London based and you can check out there website here!

Such a stylish Moroccan themed interior.

Making your dressing table look beautiful makes such a difference to the overall look and feel of your bedroom. Decorate it with pretty things!
This mini bar I spotted in the showroom is just perfect. I love the ceramic pineapple!
 Tropical inspired interior. I absolutely love this little space, it's a glamorous mix of green, gorgeous colours and a touch of gold.

BPerfect 10 Second Tan

I've been self-tanning for years and get excited every time a new product comes out. Recently, I discovered the 10 Second Tan by Perfect Cosmetics and I love it! It doesn't have that strong self-tan smell and it doesn't streak. Most self tanners last five days on average and this lasted almost two weeks, and yes I did shower every day! When dry and developed, it wasn't orange at all and looked like a natural tan.

The 10 Second Tan is a liquid non-streak formula that is easy to apply via a spray bottle. It's quick drying, long lasting and is lightly scented with soft notes of coconut. 

It's available to buy online at BPerfect Cosmetics

Live Parisian with Darphin

Parisian skincare and beauty products have always shun bright in my eyes. From perfumes, to fantastic foundations and ultimate facial moisturisers. So I was utterly excited when I was asked to review Darphin's skincare range. The range I was sent includes an Aromatic Cleansing Balm with Rosewood which is a cleansing balm that helps remove impurities and makeup from the skin when applied to the face and mixed with a little water. The balm feels very luxurious and I use it every other day to remove my makeup as it also works as a facial.

The key benefits are:

  • Entraps impurities with balm texture 
  • Cleanses skin and removes makeup 
  • Purifies skin thanks to the benefits of sage essential oil 
  • Nourishes skin 
The Hydraskin Intensive Moisturising Serum is also a lovely product, it is light and refreshing upon application and works well underneath your facial moisturiser. 

The key benefits are: 
  • Immediately hydrates skin 
  • Infuses the cells with water 
  • Relieves skin from feeling tight

One of my favourite products is the Revitalising Oil For Face, Body & Hair. I use this primarily on my hair after drying it as it leaves it so soft and impeccably shiny. It's one of the best oils I have ever used in my hair. Perfect for both blondes and brunettes.

The key benefits are:
  • Reveals in one step a nourished, revitalised glowing skin  
  • Restores the body to sublime smoothness 
  • Helps strengthen hair to reduce breakage

I absolutely love the Hydraskin Light Gel Cream, I've used it only at nighttime so far and it leaves my skin feeling very hydrated and beautifully fresh when I wake up. Along with the Revitalising Oil For Face, Body & Hair, this is one of my favourite products.

The key benefits are:
  • Helps maintain hydration day after day 
  • More luminous complexion glowing with health 
Chamomile Aromatic Care smells incredible, this is a luxurious oil which I use when I want to feel pampered. It helps calm my skin and reduces redness.

The key benefits are:
  • Calms, soothes and visibly relieves redness; 
  • Helps diminish the appearance of irritations and blotchiness 

I'm starting off the week with Darphin 🌿 and you can too! Use code "liveparisian" to get 15% off any purchase on their website!
