Meet the new special edition Vanilla Pumpkin Body Collection.



This rich and comforting scent features notes of sweet hazelnut caramel, maple syrup and almond milk blended with the iconic autumnal icon, pumpkin.

Soft and sweet, it a delicious scent which cocoons you in a warm hug, soothing a tired body and calming an over worked mind.

The collection comprises of a Shower Gel (£5.50), Body Butter (£16) and a Hand Cream (£5).


The packaging reflects the colours of autumn as well as the combination of addictively sweet notes contained within the products.

Warm, autumnal reds and oranges swirl with nutty browns and sweet caramel to hint at the notes inside.

Enjoy your first Vanilla Pumpkin experience by stepping into the shower to warm your limbs with the thick, richly foaming gel.



Infused with vanilla extract from Madagascar, notes of pumpkin, hazelnut caramel and maple syrup, this indulgent Shower Gel effortlessly cleanses and refreshes your skin while leaving behind its beautiful, soft fragrance.

Continue the ritual by treating your body to the deeply nourishing and hydrating properties of the decadent Body Butter.



Created with a blend of Community Fair Trade shea butter from Ghana, Brazilian babassu oil and sesame seed oil from Nicaragua, this fast working wonder butter instantly softens and smooths dry, parched skin leaving it feeling wonderfully soft and pampered.

Unlike some fragrances which can be overpowering, the beauty of Vanilla Pumpkin is that it is so delicate it doesn’t overwhelm your senses.



Complete your pampering with the wonderfully soft and non greasy Hand Cream.

Containing a blend of Community Fair Trade Ghanian shea butter and babussa oil, the rich cream is quickly absorbed into your skin leaving your hands feeling soft and nourished while its creamy, sweet notes linger on.


The new Vanilla Pumpkin collection won’t be around for forever so hot foot it over to The Body Shop and treat yourself while you can.

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Primer

If you want your makeup to look beautiful and last all day long then you need to invest in a decent primer.

After all, my mantra is It’s a cime not to prime!

If you suffer with skin that is prone to dryness which can result in your makeup beginning to crack, flake or feel and look cakey throughout the day then I suggest you give this bad boy from Fenty Beauty a go.

Pro Filt’r Hydrating Primer in Soft Silk offers instant hydration with a silky soft finish that promises to prolong and extend your makeup wear.

Lightweight yet decadently rich and comforting, this softening and hydrating primer floods your skin with an immediate hit of moisture to ensure your skin feels hydrated and comfortable all day.

Bad Girl RiRi says of the primer “I made this hydrating primer for all my dry skin people, and for when my skin is feeling extra thirsty.”

Ideal for the cold months when your skin may need a little extra TLC, this primer offers more than just nourishment to parched complexions.

Once absorbed, it creates a filter-like blurring effect to effortlessly minimise the appearance of imperfections, pores and fine lines, creating the most flawless and smooth base for your make up.

Enriched with grape seed oil and sodium hyaluronate, both known for their superior hydrating properties, the lightweight fluid melts into your skin, banishing dry patches and offering a silky, soft finish.

Nude in colour, the primer is almost a lightweight gel in texture as opposed to a cream or serum.
Despite its richness it is absorbed quickly, leaving behind no trace whatsoever.

I wasn’t sure if I might find this primer a tad too heavy for my combination complexion given its hydrating qualities, however I was pleasantly surprised.

It really is feather-light and actually balanced my complexion, offering a soft, demi-matte finish that left my skin feel wonderfully soft.

I was particularly impressed by its ability to prevent makeup creasing when applying my concealer around my eye area.

My makeup sat beautifully on this canvas and as promised, did last all day long with minimum touch ups required.

All in all, I’m really rather impressed with this primer and if you do suffer with a drier complexion than its definitely one you need to add to your ‘must try’ list!

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Primer in Soft Silk is available now from Boots and costs £24.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Daze

Daisy Daze limited editions are the exciting new fresh and fruity twists on the classic range of Daisy fragrances.

Created for Spring in four feel-good fragrances, Daisy Daze offers a vibrant, warm and dazzling and escape from the drudge of the everyday.

It’s a bold statement I know, but I reckon that Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Daze could possibly be my all-time favourite Daisy scent to date!

The iconic Eau So Fresh bottle has retained its same instantly recognisable form but has been re-imagined with a soft peachy glow.

The elegant, feminine flowers that adorn the golden cap bloom with pastel greens, warm corals and soft, vintage pinks to reflect the bright, illuminating scent within.

The fragrance opens with notes of ripe, crisp and juicy White Peach which smells wonderfully refreshing, soft and charmingly addictive.

Heart notes of Orchard Blossoms evoke images of a leisurely walk through a sun-drenched orchard, soft grass beneath your feet and the beautiful, fresh yet distinctly floral swirls of blossom on the light warm breeze.

A delicate caress of Peach Skin rounds off the fragrance to create a unique cocktail of sumptuously sweet and soft notes which together create a radiant, sunny and undeniably happy scent.

Daisy Eau So Fresh Daze is a resplendent, luminous fragrance that effortlessly captures the delightful glow of Springtime.

An addictive and playful combination of soft, sweet floral notes, it is an elegant and feminine scent which makes me feel happy and bright whenever I wear it.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Daze is available now and costs £69.
