Three Steps to Style with John Lewis Newcastle.

John Lewis is one of those department stores that has always been part of my life growing up – does anybody else remember when they used to be Bainbridges? But I can’t say it was somewhere I shopped at regularly. It was only recently I discovered they had their own personal stylists in store when I came across some of their styling team on Instagram.

Earlier in the year my mum and I said we would…

Becx Beauty: Vegan and Cruelty-Free beauty treatments at home.

Since going cruelty-free back in 2016 there are a few things I just accepted I probably wouldn’t be able to enjoy the same way. Facials were one of them. I did a little research into cruelty-free spa brands but struggled to find places local to me that offered treatments using cruelty-free products. The majority of the places I’ve been in the past tend to use brands like Elemis, Declor and Clarins and I’d just come to peace with the fact having a good facial was a thing of the past. So when my friend and fellow blogger, Rebecca told me…
