nsm Beauty and Style: three ways to bring back summer! A sunny fragrance, sizzling pink nails and a hot summer scarf!

Whatever the weather this weekend, here are some easy, instant ways to bring the sunshine in!

This is definitely the season of the ‘treatment fragrance’, and the latest from Clarins is just lovely …

Joining the original, zesty Eau Dynamisante and follow-up, woody-floral Eau Ressourcante, the new Eau des Jardins is a truly uplifting floral with fruity notes and a warm, long-lasting base (all from £28.50 each, at Clarins counters nationwide and online at John Lewis).

As I tap this, I’m still wearing what’s left of my Jubilee Nail Polish from Nails Inc. (which will be coming out again for the Olympics next month!), now it’s definitely time for a colour change! 

What I’m craving right now is a hot coral (don’t forget the gorgeous Nubar one I flagged up the other day), or a new, multi-tonal pink like the No 7 Stay Perfect (£7) in new Jammy …

… and, while it’s not a beauty product, this new Accessorize Fine Gauge Plain Stole (£12) also provides the most gorgeous, instant ‘pop’ of colour …


Team it with a plain white tee and jeans until the sun’s back!

    I'm a beauty and lifestyle writer and juggle-from-home mama (the Italian genes explain the mad hair and love of bronzer). I've written for a wide range of British glossies, newspapers and weekend supplements, along with many beauty and lifestyle websites.

    Now in my Forties, I truly believe that true beauty is both ageless and timeless (although I could be biased).
