Stationery Porn Alert - Daily Greatness Business Planner and the Bullet Journal

Ooh Lordy! Two hits of gorgeousness for my fellow stationery freaks today. This landed on my desk this morning just in time for a new week and a new month. This planner - aimed at female entrepreneurs (I don't know why - it's very unisex?!) is literally designed to take business planning to the next level and help guide you through the process of business or a project start-up.

It has the normal week-to-views across two pages and then pages and pages of other lushness such as planners for budgets and meetings along with weekly, quarterly and yearly breakdowns.

If you run/are planning to run your own business you may want to check this out. If you're a stationery/planner/Filofax addict it may be right up your street.

The Daily Greatness Business Planner is £34.95 and available from - be warned: there are other planners available.

Alongside this - I came across the Bullet Journal last week and quickly decided I was getting on board with that also.

I ordered the yellow Leuchtturm1917 from Amazon - there are a ton of other colours available if you search through the mobile app.

They are available here for around £12.00 - and are available on the US site also. They are listed as being available in Waterstones but they don't have them online...worldwide stockists are available on the dedicated Leuchtturm site here.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm Special Edition 200ml size

Heads up fellow Cleansing Balm freaks. (We really should start a support group)

To celebrate the success of Elemis' Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, it is being released in a 200ml supersize. 
200 fat mls of juicy, velvety, cleansing waxes just waiting for you to savage. Ok. I know. I really need to get a grip.

The Supersize is available now on and is £55.00 - it's worth over £75.00 taken ml for ml.

Not all good things come in small packages. Go get yours.

Jo Loves Shot Candle Collection

On Monday I visited the brand new Jo Loves Shot Candle Studio at the back of their beautiful flagship Elizabeth Street store. Two hours of blissful smelling and mixing later - and those of you that watch my videos will know how much I a: love a good candle and b: love a good whiff...

Although I have the layered candle of Frangipani, Wild Reseda and Tuberose...

which is divine, I had not yet experienced all of the newer fragrances including the mango fragrances, which were in all honesty, astounding.

The latest innovation from Jo is a patent pending new way to enjoy candles and make it to your own desired fragrance. The Shot Candle is so ridiculously simple in its execution that it seems strange that no-one has done it before.

You choose from a base scent, then simply pick your 'Shot' to sit on top of it. When lit, it gently burns down infusing both fragrances in the loveliest way.

I chose a Gardenia base (I know, quelle surprise) and my shot choice was Mango. Sounds random, smells blissful. To be clear, because I was confused at first, this isn't the size of a shot glass, it's a proper, fat candle!

The Shot Candle service is £75.00 and includes your one-on-one consultation. I cannot recommend it highly enough. I'm going back with Mum.

5 Days, 5 Faces

Having lost the will to live with the horribly bad camera in the iPhone 6 Plus, I caved and am now the proud owner of the Canon G7X - which means I am taking pics again! Loads of them. YAY.

Tata cleanse, Clinique Mild Clarifying, Tom Ford Essence, Dennis Gross MD eye, Kate Somerville Deep Tissue Repair and Tom Ford Intensive Infusion Ultra Rich moisturiser

The last five days have seen my usual swapping and changing - the only constant has been the Dennis Gross MD Ferulic + Retinol eye cream, which I am loving. Tom Ford Essence has become a regular, hard to describe exactly what it does other than to say my skin looks 'tighter' and 'fresher'. I'll do a proper review when I can form a complete sentence.

The Organic Pharmacy Carrot Butter cleanser, FAB pads, Tom Ford again, Dennis again, Kate AGAIN, albeit in the Mega-C, not Deep Tissue Repair and Sjal Cela Intuitif

If you haven't yet tried Sjal, it is really worth looking in to. It works out expensive in UK£ which I think has impeded their popularity somewhat, but the range contains some beauts.

Emma balm, Tata 2nd Cleanse, P50, Clinique Moisture Surge Spray, Dennis Eye, Sunday Riley Luna with BioEssence Water Droplet mask on top. 

Ooh this was a good night. :) I literally only have to double cleanse when I wear makeup and I haven't worn a lot recently as I have better control of my diary and tend to do all my meetings in one day, so this was a real treat. The BioEssence mask compensates with extra moisture on top of Luna while it gets to work.

Tatcha oil, Dennis Gross MD Alpha Beta Pads, Bioderma Crealine spray, Dennis eye, Kate Mega-C and Lauder Revitalizing Supreme.

If you follow me on social media you'll know that I recently had a cartliage piercing that was painless to have done and then OWWW for days after. Really bad, to the point that I couldn't sleep. Ridiculous behaviour!
Anyway: the Bioderma Crealine spray worked wonders. It contains zinc, potassium and magnesium and definitely speeded up my healing time. Meanwhile, those Dennis Gross pads hidden between Tatcha and Bioderma continue to be utterly brilliant.

Tata cleanse, Clarins Gentle Exfoliator, Dennis - again, Vichy Aqualia Thermal, Kate Deep Tissue and Tata Repairative Moisturiser

That Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser is SO lovely. This was my attempt to bump up my hydration levels - the Vichy serum works wonders on top of the Clarins Gentle Exfoliator and Tata's Repairative Moisturiser seals the deal.

I'm looking forward to being able to get back to taking more pics, not just of skincare - in general!
