Revive Winter Skin with G Baldwin & Co Pomegranate Bilberry & Rose Body Lotion

Revive Winter complexions naturally with G Baldwin & Co new ‘Replenishing Pomegranate Bilberry & Rose body lotion with Lotus Flower, poppy seed and apricot. G Baldwin & Co was established in 1844 and is the UK’s oldest herbalist and natural wellbeing company. The body lotion is suitable for all skin types and is the natural nourishment that you need to reawaken tired, dry and grey skin from its winter slumber!


The scent of the lotion is gorgeous, comforting and relaxing – reminds me very much of a spa-like smell. The deliciously scented, fast absorbing non-greasy yet super moisturising body lotion sinks in quickly and promises to restore your dry skin to silky smooth in two, full-body applications. I like to use this on an evening after a bath just before bed. Baldwins suggest that you continue with the regime twice per week after bathing to maintain the health glow.

Baldwin & Co ‘Replenishing Pomegranate Bilberry & Rose body lotion’ is priced at £10.99 and available from http://www.baldwins.co.uk/

Have you tried any other products from Baldwin & Co that you would recommend?

Tom’s of Maine

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Toms of Maine. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you heard of Tom's Of Maine? No I had not either until I was sent an email giving me the chance to write about it. Tom’s of Maine is a leading natural products company focused on oral and personal care. For over 40 years, Tom’s has been committed to supporting people, communities and the planet. They make and sell a range of toothpaste, mouthwash, dental floss along with natural soaps and deodorants. I really like their ethics and values, passion about helping people in the community and the fact they care about the environment and will only use natural ingredients in their products, with no nasty chemicals or parabens in sight.  

Their Website, http://www.tomsofmaine.com, is really informative and explains and goes into detail about their passion for nature, their products, how they help the environment and their involvement with giving back to the community and donating to charity. For those of you that are concerned about what ingredients go into the products you buy, Tom’s share as much detail as possible with you, every ingredient, its purpose and its source is all explained, so that you can feel comfortable choosing Tom's. I really admire Tom’s honesty and level of detail, as some companies claim to sell natural products, when in reality only a small percentage contains natural ingredients. I have long been searching for a good natural toothpaste without them containing parabens or sulphates. Tom’s new Wicked Fresh is a natural, long lasting fresh breath toothpaste that gives cavity protection and uses natural flavored oils and a patent-pending botanical extract to provide long-lasting fresh breath. Using the toothpaste along with Tom’s Wicked Fresh Mouthwash, you’re sure to have a wicked fresh mouth!

You can share your Wicked Fresh moment for a chance to win Wicked Fresh Prizes at That's Wicked Fresh contest page and also Join Tom’s of Maine on Facebook and can follow them on Twitter @TomsofMaine

Kate Middleton's Dress in Engagement Photos

Kate Middleton and Prince William released their engagement photos yesterday and it was nice to see Kate choosing pieces from the highstreet rather than designer. In the formal portrait, Kate wore a Reiss belted Nanette gown with three-quarter length sleeves and a frill along the zip is thought to have cost £159 in their 2009 Autumn/Winter collection and is no longer available, however Reiss are bringing the dress back as part of Reiss's Core Collection in January 2011. Kate paired the dress with a £275 pair of earrings from Links of London.
I prefer this more relaxed natural shot of the royal couple :)
Kate wore the dress in the more formal of two official photographs of William and Kate taken by Mario Testino. In the more laid-back shots, she selected a white scallop edge blouse worn which costs £95 from Whistles and is current stock.

Kate wearing the Reiss Nanette Dress

When Kate and William announced their engagement on November 16, her £399 royal blue dress by Issa, sold out in a day! Tesco brought out a £16 replica of the blue dress, as seen here. Her most recent ensembles are already being touted on eBay at inflated prices, but expect to see more purse-friendly replicas on a high street near you very soon.

Bethanie Lunn's 'A Modern Girl's Guide to Fabulousness'

I was very excited to be invited to meet Bethanie Lunn, author of ‘A Modern Girl’s Guide to Fabulousness’ and to join her for her book club where she would be reading from her book, answering questions and providing tips on how to be fabulous! Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it due to the snow (we still have 3 foot here) and of course me living in the sticks doesn't help!



I was kindly sent a copy of the book this morning. It's the perfect book to read whilst enjoying a cuppa which I intend to this afternoon. It is described as a 'lifestyle bible of services, places, tips and tricks for modern life'. It is everything a girl needs to know and gives you the fast track to the coolest places, services and products around and has already been praised by Elle Macpherson who says;


‘Laid out as an A-Z, Bethanie separates the so-so from the sensational, providing the fastest guide to ‘intelligent spending’. Her ‘little black book’ uncovers places and services in addition to featuring experts who offer their pearls of wisdom . . . Let’s hope Bethanie Lunn takes her gentle wit and her quest for fabulousness global.’ - Elle Macpherson


Bethanie Lunn is a writer, presenter and one of the original bloggers (as recognised recently by Stylist), gaining a huge following through her insightful, witty and educational articles across the fashion and beauty industry. She’s a style expert and online presenter for X-Factor’s fashion partner, VERY (find her at blog.very.co.uk) and a columnist for Stylebible.com. Bethanie Lunn, offers an A-Z guide on fun things to do, exciting places to go, what to wear, where to dine, shop and beautify, while avoiding wasting your money on disappointments. She’s tested everything first so that only the best is recorded in this heavenly little lifestyle bible!

The Modern Girl’s Guide to Fabulousness was released 28th October 2010 priced at £9.99. Published by Book Guild and available in good book shops and online at http://www.bethanielunn.com/ or http://www.moderngirlsguideto.blogspot.com/
