THE RE-BRAND: ESSENCE OF HARRIS

 

unnamed (1)

I’m so excited to share this post with you all as I feel like working with this brand sums up perfectly the reasons why I love being a blogger. For those of you who have followed my blog for a little while – you may have read my previous post back in April reviewing Buth Bheag Candle Co.

Since the spring this luxury brand has gone from strength to strength with the help of bloggers and influencers from across the UK sharing the love for their stunning range of products. They have now landed themselves over 30 stockists and two brand new shops.

Sometimes when a project or new venture takes shape and naturally progresses a re-brand can be a really exciting and refreshing way to move forward and celebrate the success you’ve made. When the team announced the re-brand I instantly couldn’t wait to see what this meant for them as a company; I was pleasantly suprised to see that they are still taking their inspiration from their beautiful home of the Scottish Isles by keeping their scents named after the many beaches that make up the stunning coastline.

SENT WITH LOVE 

When I opened the parcel up to reveal the two beautifully packaged items I thought for a moment what good gifts they would make. The re-brand has taken on a slightly more mature, sophisticated vibe.

You can tell as soon as you open the box that it’s a luxury item – from the on trend marble exterior to the minimal, slick glassware. Each and every perfectly executed little detail completely sets Essence of Harris apart from the other brands on the market. Everything down to their scent collections, packaging and brand story is unique and you truly feel like you have a little bit of paradise in your home when you purchase from them.

Each scent collection comes in a different colour palette, each with rose gold lettering which makes the new range ideal for gifts with the festive season coming around.

Another reason that makes this new collection special is the fact they’ve gone right back to basics by discussing how each of the candles and reed diffusers are made on the side of the packaging. Absolutely every single item is hand-poured with love in the Isle of Harris and you can even learn more about the creators of the brand on the ‘Our Team’ section of their website.
WINTER SCENT REVIEW:
SEILEBOST 
EofH_3wick_2048x1365_seilebost_grande

A sophisticated, deep and sensual scent with top notes of pomegranate, plum and rose.
(Black Pomegranate Reed Diffuser, £17. Available at http://www.essenceofharris.co.uk)
Warm, cosy and not too overpowering. It’s also a very natural scent, sometimes in the past I’ve purchased room sprays and diffusers that are way too strong and almost have an artificial scent.
Each of their diffuser ranges come the 100ml size which will usually last for up to 12 weeks. Ideal for Christmas in the living room or bedroom.

In this blog post I’m reviewing one of my new favourite accessory brands which I cannot wait to share with you! It’s rare that you come across an independent brand that has both incredible products and a super friendly team working behind the scenes. Personally, I feel as a blogger it’s important for me to only share with you the companies and brands that I truly love and support, that I feel proud to be associated with and honoured to wear.

I first heard about US brand Kozha Numbers while  on holiday last year, I was recommended to take a look at them online by a friend. So I headed straight to their stunningly chic Instagram page and instantly fell in love! Their sleek leather designs are minimal and sophisticated – making them the ideal accessory for pretty much any outfit combination.

THE CARDLET | THE CASHLET
KOZHA NUMBERS Cardlet, $34 KOZHA NUMBERS Cashlet, $72.
The two products I knew I had to add to my Christmas list! I’d been on the search for a new purse for a while as my old one was falling apart at the seams! Plus recently relocating back to London meant that I was also keen to purchase a Cardlet, just a little wallet style pouch which keeps your cash card or oyster safe when you’re travelling. I would highly recommend purchasing one of these as they eliminate the hassle of pulling out your purse every time you want to touch in or out on the tube.

Both the Cardlet and Cashlet from Kozha Numbers are made from super soft and sleek  latigo leather and fasten with a thin silicone string which wraps around the purse keeping your items safe inside. Both products also feature the stunning Kozha Numbers logo which I’m a huge fan of. The gold writing against the high quality black leather is just stunning and so unique. If like me you have a love for simple minimal designs which have a big impact, you need to get to know this brand!

CANDLE SCOOP | THE SCENTS YOU NEED THIS CHRISTMAS

img_1835

This week I received a very special package from my favourite candle brand Buth Bheag Candle co. You may have already read about this brand on my blog back in April this year where I reviewed two candles from both the Losgaintir and Huisinins collection. You can catch up here.

Since my last post the company has been going from strength to strength with mini pop up shops and the launch of several new fragrances. It’s always a joy to collaborate with independent, ambitious brands that have created a unique and exciting product; Buth Bheag Candle Co. are the ultimate pleasure to work with, from the team to the products, it’s the ultimate luxury experience.

In this post I’m going to review two products each from new collections that have launched this year – both of which I absolutely love! Plus, this is my first festive post of the year which makes me so excited!

Cranberry Christmas Candle

img_1818

“A festive combination of cranberries, orange and cinnamon with floral back notes on a base of sandal, cedar, musk vanilla and sugar.”

If like me, you love Christmas and all things festive, you have to get your hands on the new Christmas collection. When I first opened the box the scent reminded me of all things festive and when lit, the candle fills the room with a gorgeous rich fragrance. I wanted to point out that a lot of scented Christmas candles can become quite headachey after a while but this one is completely different. The soy formula burns slower than most candles I’ve purchased in the past, they also last a lot longer than most other brands I’ve tried.

The Christmas collection features wax melts and reed diffusers so you can choose which product works best with your household. One thing I really like about the Christmas candle is the glass jar and festive design – it makes the perfect centre piece for the dinner table or little addition to the mantle piece.

Horgabost

img_1825

“Stimulating and sensual – evoking the tranquil beauty of an exotic eastern garden. Top notes of tangy lemongrass, Sicilian lemons and juicy limes lead into a heart of spicy ginger root and grated nutmeg, and a hint of refreshing eucalyptus. Base notes include sensual patchouli, white woods and creamy vanilla.”

This candle is very different from their other collections, this luxury scent is incredibly refreshing – the citrus burst makes you feel instantly uplifted, to me, this is the ideal scent to burn in the morning or to have in the bathroom.

I recently went for dinner at Sketch, the famous French restaurant in Mayfair, London and I remembered they has numerous Diptyque candles burning – the scent was very fresh and citrus based much like the Horgabost collection. When I first smelt this candle, I was reminded of that night – the scents are practically identical however Diptyque candles start at £40, four times the price of Buth Bheag’s collection! Not only do they use the very best ingredients – each scent is blended to perfection. What I love about this brand is the fact you can enjoy luxury in your home for less.

The deisgn of the Horgabost collection is similar to their previous collections with a minimal design. The chic packaging gives them a sophisticated edge and the greyscale beach scene on the sides is a reminder that each and every candle has been hand poured in the beautiful Isle of Harris.

TRUE BRIT LONDON | SPRING COLLECTION REVIEW

IMG_5507.JPG

I’ve been a huge fan of luxury nail lacquer brand True Brit London for a while now, being a Londoner myself it feels so good to wear and support a brand that are so proud of being British and centre their entire brand around my favourite city; London!

Since their launch back in 2014, I’ve had the privilege of reviewing their extensive selection of beautifully crafted nail lacquers for you (you can catch up on previous posts here). Their Spring Collection however is a little different; each nail varnish has a soft glittery shimmer making them light reflective and even more eye-catching!

shades-web

SO, lets start with the colours! First off, they are all to die for, Spring is my favourite time of the year and their carefully developed colour palette consisting of beautiful blues & perfect pinks pretty much sums up what Spring is all about;  each unique and perfectly packaged shade has it’s own personality – making them the perfect addition to your favourite summer dress.

‘RAINY DAY’

Rainy-Day

Rainy day is the summer pastel blue. For me, when it comes to styling this shade, it looks incredible with an all white outfit; the muted blue tone is a stand alone show stopper. I would recommend taking this shade on holiday & pair with chunky silver rings for the ultimate bohemian look. Feeling blue? Shop ‘Rainy Day’ here.

‘STREET PARTY’

Street-Party.jpg

This one is for my Queens & Princesses, the candy pink colour makes ‘Street Party’ look edible, it’s the sweetest shade of the S/S collection and looks stunning on all skin tones. Make the colour pop by teaming up with a floral outfit & Party this way!

‘BOAT RACE’

7d2715df-7b50-4d41-a623-740901e87bbf

I am totally obsessed with this peachy hue, it’s not only bang on trend but the sparkly orange colour is simply perfect for festivals, holidays, BBQ’s or traditional English garden parties! Team this nail colour with matching peachy orange lipstick ‘Sexy Sienna’ by Charlotte Tilbury for extra style points.  If this is the shade for you, shop here.

‘APPLES & PEARS’

IMG_5532

My pick from True Brit London’s S/S collection.

‘Apples & Pears’ is the ideal nail lacquer for S/S, when I opened the box I instantly fell in love with the Turquoise colour!  This versatile shade can be worn with a range of coloured clothing making it the ideal varnish for daily wear. When I’m wearing it, it puts me in a good mood (if you think this sounds silly, you haven’t worn True Brit!) the vibrant and eye catching colour is like nothing I’ve worn before, it reminds me of the ocean and sipping cocktails on the beach, the ultimate mermaid nail varnish.

BECCIOSHEA.COM LOVES ‘APPLES & PEARS’ by TRUE BRIT LONDON, The Spring Collection Available NOW! 

Like every single one of their nail laquers, the Spring collection is no different, each shade contains the same nourishing formula infused with Vitamin E, Elderflower & Rose extracts that protect and look after your nails underneath. The experts at True Brit London always recommend using the best selling ‘Caviar Base Coat’ and ‘Gloss Top Coat’ for extended wear and salon finish.

I really hope you’ve enjoyed reading about True Brit London’s brand new S/S Collection and I can’t wait for you all to see for yourself how beautiful the new colours are!

FATE LUXURY

IMG_6014

This Halloween I didn’t really get many treats (apart from one of those tiny bags of haribo!) So, I was really excited when Fate Luxury contacted me to tell me they were launching their brand new website and wanted to send me a little treat in the post!

FANTASY SET

Blue is my favourite colour so it is hardly surprising I couldn’t take my eyes off this beautiful Fantasy Lingerie Set in ‘Light Blue’ the stunning icy tone is so unusual and eye catching, I’ve never seen this colour used in a lingerie line before so it was refreshing to try something new. When I tried on the bralet I was surprised at how supportive it was! Finally! A cute bralet that actually does the job of a bra! The super soft under wiring provides you with just the right amount of support without feeling tight or restrictive and the straps are fully adjustable allowing you to find your perfect fit.

 I especially love the black caging detail against the delicate lace. Fate Luxury have re-written the rules and produced an incredible lingerie collection, think along the lines of Agent Provocateur with a colourful twist. Their gorgeous pieces wouldn’t look out of place on the famous Victoria’s Secret runway shows and this set at just £30.99 belongs in every girls knicker draw.

CONFIDENCE

Recently I’ve just started a new job as a style team manager, so I’ve been super busy training stylists and organising business trips (I’m sure you all know how hard it is to find time for yourself when you have a full work schedule!) So unfortunately underwear shopping has been at the bottom of my list for a while.

When you work full time or if you have children it can be hard to find a moment to yourself which is why Fate Luxury is my new go-to underwear shop. Their brand new website allows you to order items to be delivered to your door.. meaning you can browse, shop and pay securely with a few clicks.

 I’m a huge believer that confidence comes from within, to me there is nothing sexier than someone who is sure of themselves and is confident enough to dress the way they want to. Fate Luxury understands women and knows exactly want we need to feel comfortable in our own skin. The soft luxurious lace feels like silk and fits your curves perfectly, this combined with the subtle yet sexy harnessing detail adds a playful edge. The three piece set comes complete with bralet, knickers and suspender belt which I would recommend teaming up with their Coquette Stockings for the ultimate ensemble!

I’m really excited to see what else Fate Luxury have in store as I was so impressed by the quality and design of the garments I received, this brand is definitely one to keep your eye on!

Follow Fate Luxury on Instagram & Twitter for daily updates and an insight into new lines as they arrive…
