scrub & glow – buffing your way to beautiful skin

12th November 2015
I’m that kind of person who when told not to do something, gets over whelming urges to do exactly that. So where my exfoliating routine existed, calling it a routine is a little generous. But the moment my dermatologist told me I wouldn’t be allowed to exfoliate my skin for 6 months, all I could think of was beautifully buffed skin. I truly learnt in those long months, what a both instant and long term impact exfoliation has on your skin tone and I’m not sure there are any scrubs out there more effective with 100% natural exfoliants than St.Ives. Throughout my teens I swore by this product and it’s a joy having it back in my bathroom cabinet for the occasions when I really want to get my glow on. So naturally, I jumped at the chance to head down to a super cool London studio and go behind the scenes of their latest shoot with the new Ambassador for the brand, Binky Felstead. I only recently got into watching her on my TV however I was well aware of Binky’s stunning complexion and natural glow.  But like me, Binky had also suffered with her skin and under gone rigorous treatments so I was very excited to get the opportunity to hear all about her secret weapons and favourite products from the St. Ives range. So now you can come behind the scenes with me and see just how incredible she looked because I vlogged the entire day!

A little indulgence from my comfort of my own home thanks to INCREDIBLE @kmp_skin and @freshbeauty Ad 
for the launch of the new Lotus Youth Preserve Resurfacing dream serum which is a gentle AHA serum with prickly pear flower extract said to boost radiance and it was so lovely to be treated to a first trial to get a very first impression of the serum thanks to KMP and her magic hands. I’ve literally never had a facial like it!
The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
Winter Spring views.
Primrose & Snowdrops are on their way!
February is a very special month, it almost feels like the build up before the crescendo of spring and I can’t help but feel a flutter in my chest at the thought of what’s to come 🌱
