What do you think of when you imagine a woman with wisdom? Now I’m not saying that I’m this gal full of wisdom with a crystal ball but I do like to think that I’m quite clued-up on certain aspects of life and echo the glimmer of someone wise within these pictures.. (bohemian vibes and all)
I like to think that I’m quite wise when it comes to advice. I’m the friend that will always give you a genuine opinion and welcome you with open arms. But alongside this, I’m also pretty good at looking after my skin and in particular, my legs. Being quite short and flat chested, my lower half has always been my favourite and I do pretty much everything to protect my favourite assets. Whether its multiple gym sessions, flattering outfits or endless beauty products – you can bet that I know all of the tricks!
So for today’s post, I thought I’d give you an insight into my beauty cupboard and share the essentials to beautiful silky legs as well as a little chat about the Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture razor that’s my new beauty staple. To celebrate the release of Wonder Woman this week, Wilkinson Sword has actually teamed up with the Warner Bros Hollywood blockbuster to offer one of four limited edition Wonder Woman lipsticks with any purchase of a specially marked razors. The lipsticks are well pigmented, moisturising and come in four classic shades These include ‘Wonder’, a gorgeous pinky nude lipstick, a soft coral named ‘Grace’, a classic red named ‘Power’ and my chosen lipstick; the deep red ‘Wisdom’ which is perfect for this Spanish evening and days when I feel a little bolder!
When it comes to hair removal, I used disposable razors for years. They seemed like a good idea but I never liked how quickly they went blunt and how much money I spent replacing them. So after finally getting my hands on a longer lasting razor which gives results, it only seems fair to update you on my shaving routine (trust me, it’s so much quicker than you think).
Now the routine always happens mid-shower while I’m letting my conditioner work its magic. I apply a sugar body scrub to begin with to get rid of any dead skin cells and to prep my hair for removal. Then instead of grabbing the shaving gel, I use the Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture razor which has four blades wrapped in a moisture block. The block lathers up and moisturises your skin while the blades work to get rid of unwanted hairs – its much quicker and because you only need a little water, its convenient for holidays too.
I’ll be honest that I’m now a complete convert. The ease of this razor is perfect for spending less time in the shower and more time enjoying the Summer. Post shower is usually a time for fake tans and despite these pictures being taken in Spain, my weekend wasn’t quite long enough to achieve a golden tan. I’ve been using a dry oil self tanner and a little contour to fake the summer glow!
To celebrate the launch of the film, I’ve created my own Wonder Woman look to go alongside my chosen ‘Wonder’ lipstick and I decided to bring out the boho. Whenever I’m abroad, I love loose embroidered pieces that differ from my usual wardrobe at home and fell in love with this boho beauty from Next – perfect for Summer! On this particular day, the weather was beautiful so I went for white shorts (to make my tan look better) and a statement sleeved top for a little drama. Team it with natural makeup and a dark, bold lipstick and you’re ready to go – perfect pins and all!
I mean, who could say no to smoother legs and free lipstick!?
