We dig through Jules’ beauty trash from the past few months
October is a big birthday month for me – between best friends and family members, there are many, many presents which need to be bought. It will come as no surprise that beauty products are the gifts I tend to give most often – they’re generally the items people can’t justify buying for themselves, which make them all the more special to receive! I thought it might be helpful to give you a quick run-down of some of my favourite gifting items in case you’ve got a big birthday month coming up too (or, you know, Christmas): Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream…
This has the potential to be the most boring blog post of all time… but for some reason, I love taking a sneaky peek inside other people’s handbags so I figure a couple of you might too! “What’s in my Bag” videos are my guilty pleasure on YouTube (anyone else?!) so I thought I’d show you what goes into the little pouch that I keep in my main handbag. It’s a short list of absolute essentials:
NYX Butter Gloss in ‘Angel Food Cake’ and ‘Tiramisu’ I am so thrilled that these are finally available at Clicks!

Nail polish remover Obvious I know, but picking the right nail polish remover can make the difference between strong, healthy nails and ones that split and peel from dehydration. Bourjois Magic 1 Second Nail Polish Remover comes in a convenient little pot containing a sponge in which you dip your finger and twist to remove the polish.

Aēsop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm I knew this was going to be a favourite the minute I opened the cap and breathed in the fragrant blend of mandarin rind, rosemary and cedarwood. The super moisturising and skin-softening formula absorbs into my skin without any greasiness and it’s ideal for regular use – in fact, I sometimes slather it on up to five times a day. My favourite hand cream by a country mile, this stuff saves my hands from dryness, flaking and callouses while filling my nose with herbaceous heaven. Highly, highly recommended. Aēsop body care products are available at…
