The Beauty & Holistic Lounge | Liverpool

I don’t know about you, but I feel like the hairdresser experience can either be great or disastrous and once you’ve found the one, they’re for life.

I got the opportunity to go to The Beauty & Holistic Lounge in Liverpool by the lovely girls at Pink Media and was treated to a blow dry and some fresh shellac nails. 

I went for a nude colour on my nails and I am so pleased with it! I hardly ever get my nails done but when I do I always tell myself I must do it more often. 

I’m not much of a girly girl but I felt like an absolute princess in Beauty & Holistic lounge! The staff, the treatments and all round atmosphere was a Saturday morning very well spent. I had ‘one of those weeks’ last week and this little pamper session left me feeling like a new person!  


The interior is quite something, with glamourous decor and individual themed treatment rooms (chocolate bar room, lavender room, so-berry room, bounty room and the spoilt room). The salon offers a range of treatments from HD Brows, non surgical facials, tanning and lots more!

If you live in Liverpool or are around and in need of beauty therapy I would highly recommend giving the lovely ladies at Beauty & Holistic a visit! We all deserve a little 'me time' in this crazy thing we call life.

Leopard Print

As far as a British Summer goes, this one has been rather disappointing. This comes from someone who is not going on a beach holiday this year, so praying everyday to wake up to clear blue skies and higher than average temperature. Whilst we have been graced with a few days like that, I am completely over Summer and looking towards Autumn/Winter. I'm not much of a summer dresser, as you probably know 90% of my wardrobe is monochrome so I've not really invested in much with regard to my summer wardrobe.

Leopard print always has a place in my sartorial heart, and this skirt most definitely has a place in my A/W wardrobe...

Sleeveless Blazer -

Skirt - New Look
Shoes - Public Desire 

What will you be adding to your Autumn/Winter wardrobe?

Beauty Wishlist | August

Beauty Wishlist | August

Recently I have found myself lusting over so many beauty products, more so than clothes and shoes (remind me of this when AW15 starts dropping)

Anyway, I have had to put this wish list together just in case I come into a small fortune and I can remind myself what to spend it on...  

From L-R
Blogger fave Diptyque have the most beautiful (but pricey) range of fragrances and candles but recently whilst wasting my lunch hour in Selfridges, I sprayed the Philosykos eau de parfum and fell in love! At £58-90 a bottle this is obviously quite a pricey love affair but you know what they say about things you can’t have…
The scent is so fresh and not something I would usually go for with hints of fig leaves and white cedar – this one is for sure on my lust list.

A few of the girls in the office have been raving about the Laura Mercier skin offerings, mainly the tinted moisturiser and silk crème foundation. Any oily/combination skin sisters out there who would recommend? Lemme know!

Again, another fragrance that is on my ‘to own’ list. Jo Malone have the most beautiful combinations of scents and this one is no different – Ginger Lily and Amber is closer to the kind of perfume I’d usually go for and I’m obsessed with this. On the birthday list you go…

I already have a huge collection of lipstick, Lady Danger by MAC being my ultimate favourite but the babin’ Hannah Gale recommended this shade recently and obviously I now need to own it.

I fell down a bit of a beauty YouTube rabbit hole the other day and watched this video by Lily Pebbles about her July favourites and this little YSL number caught my eye. Not only is the packing absolutely gorgeous, the product looks great! I have been a fan of Lily for years now so anything she promotes tends to tug on my purse strings. Have any of you used this before?

Alas, last but not least ANOTHER highlighter. Dammit Alex. I honestly cannot get enough of the stuff and this MAC in Soft and Gentle looks good enough to eat.

Let me know if you own any of these gems or if you have seen any reviews, leave a comment below and tell me what you think!
