Forest on the Roof, Selfridges

A visit to Selfridges' Forest on the Roof

I know today probably isn’t the day to talk about rooftop dining/drinking- looking outside my window it could definitely be mid-November- BUT, during last week’s **heat wave** I was determined to make the most of what London has to offer and headed to Selfridges’ ‘Forest on the Roof’. I have been meaning to visit Selfridges […]

Pink Lemonade Ice Lollies

Home made lollies with strawberries and raspberies

This summer we have been blessed with some gorgeous weather in the UK, leading to many impromptu BBQs. 90% of the time I knock up a quick cake or Pavlova for dessert but recently I fancied a change and made the cutest (and tastiest!) ice lollies! The pink lemonade mixture tasted SO good that we […]

All Hail the Highlight

Th Balm Mary-Lou vs Hourglass Brilliant Light highlight

This post is so overdue- but I guess summer is the perfect time for wearing a killer highlight? (I mean, I’m an all year round wearer but hey ho!) I thought it would be a GREAT idea to pit my two favorite highlighters, which also happen to be cult classics, against one another. That way, […]

Honestly- I’m just as shocked as you and thought I should share this ASAP to remedy the situation. This […]

Benefit Brows

Benefit brow Products on taradaniella.com

I have a serious love/hate relationship with my eyebrows and as a blonde I feel like it’s so much harder to commit to a killer brow (am I the only one here?) The new benefit collection peaked my interest at first glance, the packaging alone looked fab and after seeing glimpses of the products I jumped […]

Pixi Make-up Melting Wipes

Pixi Make-up wipes

This is a review I never saw myself writing- I love nothing more than gushing about my favourite products and those I think others will love, yet sometimes you can’t like a product no matter how much you try! To be honest, I’m lazy with my skincare- I’ve tried many many many different cleansers but […]

Homeslice

Pizzas at Homeslice London

I think I’m a bit of a pizza snob * gasps*. Don’t get me wrong, I could demolish a dominos or a classic Pollo ad Astra any day, but I find shop bought pizzas to be a bit soggy, bland and boring and rarely order pizza when I visit a new restaurant. At Homeslice I had […]
