Today I'm sharing a few of my Favourite Things outside the world of fragrance, including several that smell divine, of course! I've always been passionate about fashion, beauty and supporting other women in business, so it was a real challenge narrowing this list down to ten. I may have doubled or tripled-up in some categories, oops!
Enjoy - and do let me know if we have any mutual loves.
Medik8 & Perricone MD Skincare
Drunk Elephant's skincare range is crafted with high-quality, biocompatible ingredients designed to support the skin’s delicate barrier. I'm a particular fan of the Slaai Make up Melting Butter Cleanser, with antioxidant-rich fruit extracts and nourishing marula, baobob and kalahari melon oils.
4. ORIBE GOLD LUST REPAIR & RESTORE SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
This decadent duo by Oribe leave my hair at its smooth and glossy best. Made with time honoured oils and extracts such as cypress, argan and maracuja, it is a treat for the senses, filling my bathroom with the most beautiful aroma. (Also, those bottles!)
I love to blend High Street and Designer fashion and Massimo Dutti is a long term favourite for superb quality and cuts at affordable prices.
Donna Ida Jeans
Just because she deserves a category all of her own.... I've been wearing Donna Ida's jeans for years and am a particular fan of the FRAN X KATE THE HIGH TOP PATCH POCKET RELAXED WIDE LEG | BRIAR ROSE. I'm currently loving the pink for Spring, which you may have spied on my Instagram recently! Sophisticated, elegant and oh-so-flattering, they make me feeling amazing, which is what we all want from a pair of jeans, right?!
