I discovered My Beauty Emporium from the Modus PR agency press day, a wonderful on line beauty website who gave me some samples of Katima'A to try. I've used the scrub and serum and so far I'm impressed. They contain Argan Oil (in my ignorance I thought this was for hair!) and what stood out straight away for me was the scent. They don't claim to have any particular smell, so whether it's the argan oil I am attracted to I don't know, but it's like a rich buttery chocolate smell and I loved it. The scrub felt like it did the job but didn't rip my face off. I used the serum before bed under my night cream and although it was oily at first, my skin lapped it up and it felt like I was giving it a real treat for the night.

Next up I had a blast with fellow bloggers Kat and Avril last month at the Fenn Wright Manson press day. We had a very privileged sneaky peak at their AW13 (sorry, not allowed to share any piccies but needless to say they had some fantastic key pieces and prints) but also got to play dress up with their SS13 collection. Being such a petite one I struggled with the sizes they had so didn't manage a full outfit but I did love their silky top that Avril was actually wearing on the day and Kat looked great in the bold blue.

And lastly a brand I had heard of but not paid a lot of attention to before, Kat & Bee jewellery. Thanks to Emslie Creative I got to have a closer look at the amazing pieces of jewellery this brand has to offer in the coming months. The rings stood out immediately but even more so when it was pointed out they all had tiny little skulls hidden within them. Wow!

Apologies to all my regular readers for the lack of posts this week. Whilst I have this short term contract in London, my days are very long and I have little time left between getting home and hitting the sack. I have so much still to share (I've been shopping - woohoo!) so bare with me, it's not for long and soon I will be back to more regular posts which I am missing writing.
PS none of this is a sponsored post, just my favourites from what I've seen and wanted to share.
