To buy –

£6.00 for a multipack at The Popband, and if you are looking for more muted tones try the Emi-Jay bands which are priced at £7.25

I have just bought myself an iPad thinking that it would make blogging on the go much easier, and this has taken me about three times longer than usual!

My office today was poolside at Shoreditch House – what a beautiful day in London.

2 Comments on My Favourite Things – May 2013

  1. My favourite new products are from an Irish company based in Cork called Bia Beauty. Their face exfoliant has everyone asking me what I am using. Lots of science behind them too.

  2. Just purchased the Ribbon Hairbands. Being a nurse we have to have our tied up all the time at work, so I’m going to give them a whirl.
