Kiehl’s has always been my favourite brand of skincare… Although I’ve regularly mentioned Lush Cosmetics previously, Kiehl’s will remain my first choice – because I will never forget how it saved my skin and cured it from acne.

Kiehl’s appeals to me because, like Lush, it’s made from natural and herbal ingredients.

No, I don’t even need to write about their Midnight Recovery serum as it’s an award-winning concentrate that speaks for itself…

However, I don’t write to promote, I write to express my opinion. With that in mind, I’m going to express it.

Although it’s been on my dressing table for a while, I decided to start using it consistently about a two weeks ago. I particularly like the fact that this serum is suitable for dry, combo and oily skins.

One night. A few drops. Younger-looking skin by morning.

Like thousands of fellow patrons, use a few drops of Kiehl’s UK & Ireland #1 best-seller, Midnight Recovery Concentrate, every night for younger-looking skin by morning. Wake up to fresher-feeling skin, which is more toned, and with improved radiance.This formula works by enhancing your skin’s natural night-time recovery process – so make your skin work for you while you sleep! Additionally the formula is not only paraben-free, but also 99.8% natural-derived. A few of the key ingredients include Lavender Essential Oil, Primrose Oil, and Kiehl’s-signature ingredient squalane, derived from olives.And that’s not all – it’s made from a recyclable glass bottle, dropper and plastic squeeze top in a protective 100% recycled board carton.

Process: wash your face. Prime it. Apply three drops across your face. Night moisturise. Go to sleep. Wake up and wash it off.

Result: over time, your skin will look repaired, replenished and moisturised. But, results are visible upon first use.

My verdict: It’s brilliant. Expensive (£38 for 30ml) but well worth it. You can get testers to try before deciding whether it’s for you. I’d give it a 5*.

As I’ve alluded throughout this post, it’s the greatest overnight serum I’ve used. All Kiehl’s products are intense (in terms treatment) but sensitive enough to suit all skin-tones and types.

2018 has been a year for reflection and understanding. I’ve finally been able to get my head out of the clouds or sand (other places available upon request) and into reality. It was like a reckoning or an awakening that I needed.

As much as it hurt, and still does, the lesson that 2018 has taught me is the ability to notice a pipe dream from an achievable goal.

I was known as a forward thinker, future-planner and someone who’s dreams were bigger than their personality. It was just a part of me, I never noticed it until this year… It’s amazing when you step back to evaluate yourself and realise that it was all you’ve known.

My thoughts and perceptions had been a certain way for 26 years, so it was hard for me to accept that it wasn’t a reality nor that it never had been.

When you’re a forward thinker, you have plans, ideas and visions… You strive to make those visions happen. But, if those visions, ideas and/or plans involve other people who aren’t physically in your life at present – don’t (or do, but only for fun – in a story or film).

If your dreams involve other people, that is a ‘pipe dream’. If a dream involves no one else but you, it’s an ‘achievable goal’. Simple.

You can’t force someone or do anything in your power to make them want to share that dream nor want to make it a reality with you.

Therefore, it’s better not to waste your own time on this… Focus on those dreams that involve only you. We are in control of our own destiny where those are concerned.

Yes, your dreams that involve others can work out, but they don’t always pan out the way we’d hoped and there’s always a reason. Patience allows something more suited to you to come along in time…

However, a whopping 89% of those dreams that involve only us can be made into a reality if we not only believe but stay persistent and most importantly: work hard.

Don’t give up. Don’t give in. Do your best.

Dreams that involve just us are achievable because: we are the only ones in control. What we put in, we get out. Whereas, if it’s a ‘pipe dream’ involving others, we can put in 110%, but what we get out of it is not in our control.

Tip: strive for greatness for you and only you. If things are meant to be, they will. But, you’d have spent your time focusing on yourself and changing your reality during the time when you were the only one in it at the time.

Then, when it’s your time to build a future with someone, it will no longer be a pipe dream, but an achievable goal.

To conclude, only build a future or dream with someone when they’re there, beside, in front or around you. Until then, do but not to the extent that you’re attaching hopes or visions – because one day, you’ll look back and realise you were wishing on planes the whole time (not stars).

2018 has been one of the hardest years for me, personally. Just when I thought I’d done all the growing I needed to do previously, something comes out of the woodwork which I need to deal with and learn from. That’s life…

I found 2018 particularly difficult because it was the year of bubble bursting, awakening and reality checking. I had spent years of my life planning or hoping for stuff that weren’t even a reality and looking back, never would be. It’s hard when you’ve put your all into something only to step back and see you’ve achieved nothing this whole time.

So, I guess the message is: it’s great to dream big and have high hopes, but also don’t expect anything from them. Discern between a pipe dream and an achievable goal. That way, you won’t be disappointed.


Good morning! I have finally succumbed to loving this weather and I’m now embracing every minute of it! Isn’t it beautiful!?!?

“Never in a month of Sundays”? Umm, it has been sunny for more than a month… So: ‘RIGHT NOW IS a month of SUN DAYS (and then some!)’

Okay, this post has nothing to do with the weather, it’s predominantly on my new Brazilian Blowout… But, also, the weather! Thanks.

It’s apparently going to be record-breaking in Europe. Please enjoy it before #Brexit goes into full effect.

Brazilian blow-dries are a lot like this weather – they’re HOT! *laughs in Brazilian and books flights to do it in Rio*

Procedure: washing hair with cuticle opening shampoo (twice). Then, adding the natural solution/treatment. You then wait 10 minutes for it to soak in and blow-dry it in, then straighten it. After that, you rinse only with water and condition, then blow-dry it again. It’s a three hour process.

So, three hours well spent if I’m going to spend the next four months STILL not brushing my hair.

Anyway, long story longer, I had it done because my mum could not bear me leaving the house without brushing my hair…

Usually, parents have to do that whole Birds & the Bees talk, right?

My mum had nothing to worry about because I’m abstaining and that life chose me until marriage.

But, other lives that chose me were the “not-brush my hair” and “look homeless” ones. I actually sat my mum down at the tender age of 15 to tell her it ain’t happening.

I remember the speech, and she wishes she didn’t… It was and I quote: “mum, some people want to be astronauts, I just don’t want to brush my hair.”

She understood, reluctantly, and then continued to try as she might-ed to keep me strategically placed next to combs and hair brushes. She thought the days when I’d straighten my hair were a revelation, because they were so few and far between.

Brazilian blowdries, for me, just mean I can continue not brushing my hair. I can go four months without brushing AND hearing “can you brush you hair?”, “Do you want a brush?” and “Let me brush your hair!!!”

Why do I not brush my hair? There were 24 hours in a day last time I checked… There are 7 days in a week and four weeks in a month and 12 months in a year. Not one second/minute/hour/month/week/year/leap year/decade/millennium or anything time-related was made for me to pick up a comb and utter the words: “let me use you!” Who do you think I am, the Kings of Leon of hair brushers?

I LOVE Brazilian blow-dries. My USP is to I cut corners where hair brushing is concerned, and this gives me that…

It’s a treatment that straightens, nourishes, and softens the hair, giving it added shine. As I explained briefly, it lasts 4 months (if you only wash it once a week).

Yes, it is dependent on how many times you wash it. This is great because I don’t have to spend my showers washing my hair too! Extra time for me to do NOTHING! Lo’ AND BEHOLD! What a LIFE!

Thanks Jurema for doing my hair and making me look HOME-FULL! I actually look like I live inside of an abode now! My life has changed stratospherically.

My mum and my follicles are eternally grateful. I’m just grateful that I don’t have to hear conversations related to brushing of the hair.
