A Day in Haarlem – Barefoot Blonde by Amber Fillerup Clark

While we were in Holland (or Netherlands? interested which one locals call it?! I got corrected to both a few times on my insta so now I am left confused which one to call it ha!) we went to Haarlem! It was my first time there and wow it was amazing! It is the most charming little town and sooo quiet .. it felt like an empty movie set because hardly anyone was on the street except for in the…

Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist Review

One of my recent splurges during the Sephora VIB sale was the Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist. It has been sitting in my cart for months, and I full admit that I can’t remember what made me originally put the mist in my cart, but I’ve been reading about it a lot! This mist seems to be pretty much everywhere. Yes, it is a favorite of the Kardashians, but also just about every other mention I’ve seen online says that…

A Letter to All Women

It’s so normal to feel pressure at any given age. It seems like with every stage of your life comes a new set of expectations (internally and externally). When I was in my 20’s, my parents asked me when I was going to get a boyfriend. After I got married, the question from them (and everyone else) quickly turned into “When are you going to have kids?” Then, not much longer after I had Chloe, the question evolved to: “when…

HUGE Announcement: Colab with Little Mix!

As you will know, if you’ve been following A Model Recommends for any length of time, I’m a very proud founder of the Colab dry shampoo brand. It seems like only yesterday that we launched it, with a star-studded party in East London (I had found out that I was pregnant with Angelica just the day before, it was doubly-emotional), a brilliant photoshoot and an intense day of press interviews and videos. Since then, Colab has grown into something that I am…

L’Occitane Almond Delightful Body Balm

L’Occitane Almond Delightful Body Balm Ooh, this is really delicious! If you love sensual textures, this satiny, creme-balm formula is an absolute dream on the skin leaving it immediately supple and silky feeling. It’s rather a functional looking tin which doesn’t really reflect the luxurious nature of the formula although I think the colour is supposed to reflect the almond fruit, a key ingredient. L’Occitane Almond Delightful Body Balm It’s also interesting to note that the brand sources their almonds…

This is a BIG Announcement

May I have your attention, PLEASE?! I have some reallllly exciting news to share today. The first Chriselle x JOA collection did sooooooo well that we are coming out with a second collection!!!!!! Yes, you read that right! Ahhhhh! This time around it’s a much smaller and curated collection (which means it will probably sell out even faster than the first one), and it’s all of the perfect pieces for your upcoming summer vacation plans. As I was designing this collection, I asked…

Skincare Review: CeraVe Moisturising Lotion

Here’s a very effective and affordable face treat for you, if you’re after something light, hydrating and sensibly formulated. Suitable for sensitive, itchy or very dry skin (as well as skin with no particular complaints), CeraVe’s Moisturising Lotion comes in a whopping great big pump-action bottle (236ml) which, I’ll admit, does make it look more like a body lotion than a face moisturiser, but I can tell you that this is as brilliant for thirsty faces as it is for…

Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50

Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50 This feather-light, non-sticky SPF50 is getting rave reviews for very good reason. I’ve been experimenting with it to wear under base and as we all know, when base and SPF interact then you get the dreaded squirls! Not all ingredients go nicely together, and it’s usually an oil and silicone clash to blame for the flaky squirls. I’m not a formulation expert, but I’ve put this with several tinted moisturisers and foundations and…

Battle of the Hydrating Masks: Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask vs Origins Drink Up Intensive

Have you heard about the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask yet? I swear I hear about this mask from someone, or I get asked about it, roughly once every hour. Ok, maybe not quite that often, but it is a lot. The Jet Lag Mask is all over the place. It’s a hydrating mask that can be used as a moisturizer or a wipe off mask, there’s no need to wipe it off of your face. But wait… that sounds…
