The Valentines Haute List – Gift ideas

We’re generally more fans of a home cooked meal (or some fried chicken…) and a good movie rather than Hollywood style romance on the polarising day that falls on 14 February, but any excuse to update our wish list. Here’s our selection of the things we’ve been clicking on (and re-clicking on) the most in the past few weeks… hopefully some will make it into our checkout basket! We’ll do a men’s one too in case you’re looking for something for the metro-man who has everything!

Let us know if you liked any of these picks – nothing wrong with a present to yourself! Go for the free gift wrap.. why not!



Space NK – Our Top Skincare Buys

It’s no secret that we are addicted to Space NK – it’s basically the (better!) London version of Sephora and has all our favourite beauty brands under one roof, which makes popping in and spending on our NDulge card far too easy to do!

Who doesn’t love a long relaxing soak, especially when it’s turning colder outside. We are refurbishing our bathroom at the moment so we are constantly looking at beautiful bath options – and all the lovely products to go with it! It’s not often that we will have time for a really long soak but we’ve put together a list of our favourite combinations that make us want to find more time!


Luscious Locks: 5 Best Deep Conditioners for your Hair

There are many things we love about autumn; the excuse it gives us to invest in a fancy pair of new boots, the glowing pumpkins and fiendish sugar indulgence of Hallowe’en, and cosying up warm in cashmere blankets as the rain beats against your window. There are, however, things we do not look forward to with equal zeal. One of those is bad hair.

Hair woe is inevitable when you’re battling wind, water or both on an almost daily basis. It’s even more challenging when you have thick hair as both Joelle & I do (yes we know, a gift and a curse). We’ve learnt that regular conditioners just don’t cut it this time of year. When the cold starts creeping in it’s time to call out the big guns. (more…)
