The Botanist, Reading Review

If you're local to Reading you'll probably know that the building which housed the old Barclay's branch has been vacant for quite some time so, to have it occupied is a surprise in itself, but for it to be replaced by something as magical as our very own branch of The Botanist is super exciting and as such the press night was one of the most highly anticipated dates in my diary this month!

Lush Reading VIP Evening

A few weeks ago, I checked my emails to find I had been invited to the VIP opening of one of my favourite shops, Lush. The small, older style unit was closing and making way for the larger store in the middle of the Oracle in Reading and I couldn't wait to see what it looked like. The Reading branch has been morphed into a fresh, concept style store, not too dissimilar to the much-loved Oxford Street flagship, just obviously on a smaller scale. Shall we take a look at Lush Reading's extreme makeover?

Alchemy Oils "Grapefruit Hair Remedy" Review

When Alchemy Oils got in touch earlier in the year to see if I wanted to try out their hair oils, I was so excited. Alchemy's ethos is all things natural - no parabens or nasty chemicals here. They promote the equal importance of treating the scalp as well as hair as this will create a healthy environment for growth. I'm trying to grow my hair but have neglected to get trims as often as I should. The result? Tresses that are on the dry and brittle side. As it's designed to condition and strengthen the hair, I plumped for the Grapefruit Hair Remedy. With celeb fans and plenty of dazzling press coverage, I was super to keen to see how it fared on my hair.
