I only started using Soap & Glory products about six months ago but I must admit I am addicted to the core! Soap & Glory makes the best skincare and cosmetic products that I have tried so far. The first product I tried was the Clean on Me creamy shower gel. I have not been able to stop using that shower gel ever since!
Soap & Glory is proof that beauty products can be beautifully packaged, affordable and do what they promise all at the same time. The Soap & Glory brand is a vintage-inspired beauty product range. It was started by Bliss spa founder Marcia Kilgore. It is popular for its pink and flirty-feel packaging and cheeky pun-intended product names such as Glow Job, Clean of England, The Firminator and Sexy Mother Pucker just to name a few.
WHAT I LOVE about Soap & Glory is the personal feel you get from these products. You instantly feel attached to the brand the moment you introduce yourself to it. It is probably the cheeky yet ‘punny’ brand messaging that every container carries that just make you feel like you are talking to Marcia (the founder) herself! This is one of the most brilliantly-packaged products I’ve ever used. The unique smell of the products makes them impossible to resist. I once heard someone describe the Righteous Butter as ‘…almost good enough to eat!’
TRIED & TRUE Soap & Glory products I have used. The Clean on Me shower gel is one of my favourites. It left my skin feeling moisturized and the bonus is that it comes with in-built lotion. And it smells amazing. Even though it costs £5.11 in Boots stores, it is totally worth every penny. Plus it is 500ml and a little goes a long way. And did |I mention how awesome it smells? The Righteous Butter does a good job of keeping the moisture in after my showers. I cannot get enough of this butter to be honest! And just like all the other Soap & Glory products the smell is fabulous. The only disadvantage with this butter is that it is a bit pricey ( £10.21 in Boots) so as much as I want to soak myself with this glorious butter, I have to be cautious and use it sparingly.
The Hand Food, Heel Genius and Scrub Your Nose In It Facial scrub are also Soap & Glory I enjoy. I have read a lot of good reviews on the Sugar Crush so I will be trying that one out next.
WHAT’S NEW? The Soap & Glory range products for men! Yes, it is absolutely true. Soap and Glory have recently introduced a feel-good range of beauty products so that your boyfriend or husband can stop nicking your supply! Of course, I have not tried these but I am very sure they are as good as the other Soap & Glory products. And They MUST smell lovely too!

Denims are about the only item of clothing that would match anything in your closet. everyone needs a pair of denim jeans for that day when it’s so impossible to decide what they want to wear. The exciting thing about denims is you can pair them with almost any outfit that you can possibly think of.
The Denim Trouser is the first essential for any wardrobe. They could be wide, white washed or distressed and still make you look fab. They are very versatile and you could easily turn them from a casual day look to a dressy night look.
The Denim Jacket is another wardrobe essential that will complete almost any look.
Seems like black is the new yellow for the judges on the hit show Project Runway which is to return to the big screen come July the 29th 2011. Season 9 of the show features up to 20 new aspiring designers which is the highest number of contestants the show has ever started with. It also features judges Nina Garcia, Michael Kors, Heidi Klum and Kim Kardashian as a guest judge. I personnally am addicted to this show and absolutely can’t wait for it to begin. Hope the contestants can ‘Make it work!’
The judges rock the black theme on the shooting of a new episode.
Colour blocking has for the most part been a no go fashion area. That’s because most people who dare to colour have ended up looking drastically like a poor imitation of a rainbow. But this summer you don’t need to worry about that! The secrets to colour blocking have been unlocked! Fashion experts (like us, lol) have found a way to mix contrasting colours to make them look appropriately eye catching.With stars like Kim Kardashian, Cheryl Cole and Rihanna leading the trend, colour blocking is obviously this summer’s MUST DARE!
- The first thing to know about colour blocking is ALWAYS choose colours from different hues. Choosing colours from the same hue or shade does not work because one shade (usually the stronger shade) tends to wash out the other lighter one. Choose two strong colours from different hues. For example, purple and yellow, coral and jade, purple and coral. Two strong colours will always pop.
- The next thing is do not pair your colour blocked ensemble with shoes or accessories in the same colour. It takes the outfit from cool and sexy to redundant and silly in one beat. Instead look for bright shoe (or clutch) shade in like say gold or turquoise.
- Avoid over accessorizing when colour blocking. The colourful outfit is already attention grabbing enough on its own. Over accessorizing would very easily take it from classy to cheap.
- The same goes with make up. Less is ALWAYS more. Light and natural looking make up works perfect with colour blocking. You can choose to accentuate your eyes or lips with a pop of colour but do not overdo it.
- What next? you’re good to go (wow ’em!)
This summer, keep your look fresh and updated with a pop of colour. Go bright and bold. It could be a bold outfit like the Maxi dress in the picture below. Notice how she tones down the brightness of the outfit by wearing nude shoes and little or no accessories. Or instead you could wear a simple outfit and add a pop of colour to it by wearing bright accessories like Fergie does.You can get cool Yellow Peep Toe Platform Heel Pumps for just £10.45 at http://www.amiclubwear.com/shoes-heels.
