It’s all warm here! I do like warm, bright weather because it just makes me feel more alert and active, although one must remember to be SPF’ed, hair, skin, lips and I always feel like an idiot in sunglasses, but I need them or my vision turns into bright beaming halos for the next few days. I thought I’d share a pic of one of my kitties, who enjoys sunbathing so much that she’s totally […]

I’m one for a little innovation, so when I saw the Lip Glow product on my Dior counter, I just had to plonk down my £18.00 in Selfridges for this…this thing. Because first off, it’s not actually a lip balm. It’s not a lipstick. It’s not a lip gloss. It’s not a mood changing lip colour, like say, a mood ring (because god knows they are accurate). “What it is,” says the Dior lady “is […]
Wrinkles, begone! If only it were that easy. The more tired I am and the more stressed out the worse my skin looks (so that’s pretty much all the time). After a good nights sleep, some water and chill out time, my skin looks more refreshed and plump, no doubt. Meanwhile, Aldi – yep the bargain supermarket, has a nifty little skincare and make up range called Lacura. They launched a product called Wrinkle Stop […]
Hair removal – every girl has to do a bit and even though I am not overly hairy, when the sun is out once must remove extra fluff – tis only polite. Gorilla I currently have two products I use for dealing with those nasty little ingrown hairs, and that’s PBF Vanish (my favourite, although drying) and Tend Skin, which I think is pretty rubbish and stinks after a while. Diet Pepsi vs. Pepsi Max […]
Pretty pink nude is one of those staple shades that can look amazing on every skintone although it may take some searching to find the right depth and tone to suit your skin. This is the no brainer lip colour, you slap it on, it makes your lips look juicy, and you can’t say fairer than that. Sonia Rykiel Lipstick 03: This lipstick is gorgeousness in a tube. A nude, soft pink which is not […]
Reader Jess commented on the Illamasqua video I posted, and said: I need to shake up my makeup! I always feel a bit scared of the counter and everyone has such dramatic make up I feel too much like a wall flower to go there Jess is not alone – I am a hardened make up counter visitee, so very few counters intimidate me. However, many, many women are intimidated by counters – my mother […]
