Liz Earle Celebrates Their 20th Anniversary

One of my all time favourite skincare brands, Liz Earle celebrates their 20th anniversary this year. Their famous Cleanse & Polish has been a permanent fixture in my skincare cabinet for years and I literally cannot rave about the product enough. It's such an amazing cleanser, really soothing and leaves my skin feeling clean, soft and lightly scented. The muslin cloth exfoliates without being too harsh and really gives my skin a radiant glow after each cleanse.

As part of the celebration, Liz Earle have put together an exquisite collector's tin of Limited Edition Cleanse & Polishes (*) which will make a perfect gift for any devotee of the classic cleanser. My personal favourite is the Rose and Lavender one, two of the best scents ever combined is just heaven. The set is priced at £50 which I don't think it too pricey since you get three cleansers and the lovely tin to go with it.

Are you a Liz Earle fan? If yes, will you picking up one of these tins?

Sunglasses - Next
Top - ASOS
Skirt - ASOS
Shoes - Office

Ahh, it's the denim button mini in action. Purchased freshly off ASOS, this skirt has all the feels of the 70's in it and it's here to stay for sure. I bought my usual size and it does come up slightly small, but I am sure that with wear, it will definitely loosen a little. Worn with a fresh, white top which is my favourite colour to wear during this season, I know it sounds bit boring, but white is just 'the' colour for the summer for me. Shoes are from Office and by far my fave pair of lace up heels at the moment.

Holiday Inn, Golden Mile - Hong Kong

holiday inn golden mile
Following on from my 5 Things - Hong Kong post, I mention about doing a full review of the Holiday InnGolden Mile. I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for four nights a couple of weeks ago and it has honestly been one of the best hotels I have stayed at in Hong Kong. Conveniently located on the corner of Nathan and Mody roads in Tsim Sha Tsui, an area that is renowned for its shopping arcades, boutiques, restaurants and vibrant nightlife. Holiday InnGolden Mile offers six hundred and twenty one spacious rooms and suites equipped with king size or two double beds, speedy broadband internet, air-conditioning, in-room safe and more. The underground station is located adjacent to the hotel and is the fastest way to get around Hong Kong with ease. The world-famous Star Ferry to Central is also only five minute walk away, so if you fancy a more scenic way of getting to town, then this is the best option.affordable hotels in hong kong

As there was four of us staying in the room, the staff were really accommodating with our requests. Not once did we find the room cramped and our housekeeping lady was super friendly and always made sure it was tidy and in tip top condition when we returned from our days out. We also had access to Executive Club Lounge which is a perk if you book an Executive Club Floor room. Some of the privileges include express check-in, late check-out, complimentary daily buffet breakfast, free local calls and more. In the club lounge, there are also a variety of chilled out activities for guests such as reading, listening to music and internet rooms. executive club holiday inn

Within the hotel, there are three main restaurants and one bar, so you will never go hungry or thirsty. I sampled a few dishes in the Osteria Ristorante Italiano and will do another separate post on that as the food was just so, so good that it deserves it's own blog post. Overall, I would highly recommend staying at the Holiday Inn, Golden Mile, super convenient, easily accessible and just perfect for any type of traveller.
