Wowcher gets a Traditional Shave @ Mr. Rizzo Grooming

shave
With winter drawing to a close and parts of his face untouched by sunlight for several months, March seemed a good time for Kaja to brave the barber’s chair and get a wash, cut and traditional cut-throat shave, courtesy of Mr. Rizzo in Covent Garden.

I was fourteen years old the last time I visited my local barber. My hairdresser laughed at my grey hair, shouted at me for having a weak neck and, despite my request to look like Freddy Ljungberg, gave me a hairdo commonly sported by national hero Pat Butcher. Safe to say, I was fairly nervous about sitting in the hot seat after ten years living in blissful ignorance of chatty men with scissors.

When I arrived at the ultra-modern salon on Upper St. Martin’s Lane, the first thing that threw me was Mr Rizzo’s magazine collection. New editions of National Geographic and New Scientist lay in amongst glossy gossip columns and lads’ mags. There was no six-month-old copy of Home and Garden, this was the real deal. After a few minutes pretending to read a magazine, it was my time to shine. I put on my man bib and I was ready for grooming. Read more

With a nod to spring’s explosion of denim, we’ve gone for slim leg, high waist jeans, in a 70’s throwback blue; and paired these with a must-have duster jacket, over a high neck, silky black cami – a touch of the ‘90s never goes amiss (see above)!

To accessorise, we’ve gone for black slider sandals, a black mesh shopper and feminine, cat-eye sunnies!

Wowcherching’s Valentine’s Gift Ideas

Love is all around us…

Valentine’s Day… the perfect opportunity to treat your boyfriend, husband, girlfriend, wife, fiancé, partner or, let’s just say, special someone who’s yet to make an official title. Play your cards right and buy a gift through Wowcherching, and we guarantee you’ll receive a very happy return – cashback, of course!

In other words, no wallowing, no grumping around, and you have two options: 1) share the love, be it with your lover, friends, family, pet or indeed self, and get cashback; or 2) find the love (of your life), and get up to £60 cashback with eHarmony or up to £45 with match.com!

How does cashback work? You click through to a retailer via our website and shop as normal. We do all the rest for you – any purchases you then make from said retailer will be tracked and before you know it you’ll receive cashback in your Wowcher Wallet plus 10% bonus, all of which can be spent on Wowcher Daily Deals! As a Valentine’s treat, we’ve compiled a list of Valentine’s retailers which will get you 25% cashback bonus – all the retailers mentioned in this post included!  Read more

New Year, New You!

Wowcher Does a Vintage Photoshoot @ Belgravia Studios, Victoria

In search of a quirky new look, my friend and I ditched our usual work attire in favour of 1950s glamour and a whole load of scarlet lippie! On arrival at Belgravia Studios in Victoria, we weren’t entirely sure what to expect – would we suit our retro makeover? How would we take to life in front of the camera? Luckily we had no reason to worry, as we were greeted with a glass of bubbly on arrival (the best way to be greeted, in our opinion!) and introduced to our hair and makeup stylist for the day. We were given the opportunity to request a specific look or style, but we decided to let our stylists take creative control – a short while (and lashings of eyeliner) later, we were rocking a look Marilyn Monroe herself would have been proud of! With glossy red lips, smoky black eyes, victory rolls and curly locks, we were feeling fabulous and beginning to wish we’d been born fifty years before our time! Read more

Wowcher’s Guide to Picking the Perfect Perfume

We’ve all emerged from the perfume shop smelling like an explosion in, well – a perfume shop. Once you’ve spritzed three or four different types, it’s easy to get lost in a cloud of zest and musk and ultimately lose the ability to differentiate between them. Combined with bamboozling talk of base notes, top notes and eau de toilettes, you’re often left wondering how something as simple as scent can become so complicated. Another issue to consider is your perfume style. Just like taste in clothes or music, you’ll find that many people have a certain type of scent they prefer, be it fresh, floral fragrances or spicy, Oriental ones. So where to begin? Wowcher are here to get to the bottom of the jargon and assist you in your hunt for a signature scent… Read more

The Wowcher Guide To Superstardom!


Here at Wowcher, we know you’re a star, but how exactly do you let the rest of the world know it? Well it’s easier than you think. So forget the years of hard work, humiliating auditions and crippling performing arts training and just take the fast track to success with our handy five-step guide! As late-90s muses S-Club 7 once said, you’ve got to reach for the stars…

Look the part
A good way to make yourself feel like a star is to take some magical inspiration and wear it on your sleeve wherever you go. Or in this case, around your neck – so how about a gorgeous fairy necklace made with none other than Swarovski elements (we prefer them so much more than boring regular elements). Studded with emerald-coloured jewels and either rhodium, gold or rose gold plating, this Disney meets Dior bit of bling is sure to be the missing statement piece to your soon-to-be A-lister wardrobe.

Whether you opt for a rhodium, gold or rose gold-plated fairy, you’ll find her encrusted with emerald-coloured crystals and holding a star pendant.

The Wowcher Guide To An Awesome Autumn

Easy to Wear: Summer Hair Trends

At lunch, you choose a new ‘do. You visit Pinterest with a finger clamped in ‘scroll-mode’. Cue streams of pretty haircuts: pixie crops, updos, bob cuts and braids. Tugging at ratty tails, you think, “I could totally pull that off”. Next week you’re in the hairdresser’s chair bound in a black polyester gown, regretting the snap decision, and cursing the day you fell for the charms of the Pin boards. But rash judgements needn’t be bad ones. To help you on your path to ultimate hair vixen, we’ve compiled a list of the hottest hair trends this summer – and which ones are right for you…

Tousled Waves
