Fragrant soaps from Scilly

Twentyeight is a range of cleansers produced in the beautiful Isles of Scilly. Look, these are the Isles of Scilly:

I’ve just decided I want to live there. Especially since it has a more Mediterranean climate, fields full of fragrant wild flowers and beautiful shorelines galore.
Twentyeight (so called because the Isles of Scilly are 28 miles off the coast of England) is a small family-run farm, where the owners harvest and produce their own essential oils from Scilly’s beautiful meadows, and make these lovely looking hand made soaps:

They smell and look divine in the bathroom – and come in rose geranium, lavender and rosemary. Bag yourself a bar, here.

Death of the high heel!

Say it isn’t so…

Shock horror. Surely it can’t be true! The death of the heel? But according to new research 95% of women questioned in the UK don’t wear heels and more than 3 in 5 do not know how to do their make-up! Is this end of femininity? Are the elegant days of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe lost for ever?

Worryingly a further quarter of women admit to regularly leaving the house without brushing their teeth. Errrr dentist anyone? So has every lady turned to a ladette? Is elegance lost in the UK?

The research carried out by Bold 2in1 White Diamond & Lotus Flower suggests that women are blaming a lack of time and money, and a shocking third stating they ‘just can’t be bothered to try’. This may explain why a quarter of women do not remember the last time they felt elegant.

Despite this, 8 out of 10 women wish they could be more elegant in every day life. So in response, this summer the snappily titled Bold 2in1 White Diamond & Lotus Flower Elegance Boutique will be touring UK cities with a team of hair, make-up, wardrobe and perfume experts to help introduce a touch of elegance to women’s life and laundry.
