Months ago, a lovely reader helped me purchase this chocolate eyeshadow palette from Kiss (a Japanese brand) called the Glamourize Shadow. There are 4 shades in the compact and they colours are very natural. I’ve been totally into nude eyeshadow palettes lately, I just like the natural glow at the moment.
I’ve been looking for a gentle way to colour my hair lately and add some depth without reaching for permanent or semi-permanent dyes. My hair was starting to look super brassy and purple shampoos weren’t enough to keep everything in control. Then the magic of Twitter recommended the Aveda colour conditioners to me; Clove and/or Black Malva. I chose Clove: According the the Aveda website, Black Malva is for diminishing red tones and Clove […]
Doing a skincare clean up recently made me realise just how much half used skincare I have. The thing is, if something doesn’t suit, I don’t carry on using it. If something doesn’t offend my skin but doesn’t offer much either, I don’t tend to keep using it either. Hence, I do have skincare guilt every time I crack open something new.

Hi Ladies! You may have noticed a lack of posts this week – I have just been so tired, too tired to post, reply to emails or do very much other than eat cereal and oranges! I hope to feel more energetic soon and can work on this blog and the others I have been neglecting, plus some videos! I thought I’d leave you with a video I saw yesterday which features a moving message […]
Carrying on from the last nail polish post, I have another one of the new Avon Nail Polish colours! This one is called Starry Sky – a metallic pure clean silver! Something about silver polish just reminds me of Christmas!
It was Marina from Makeupforall who I first saw mention that Revlon Moon Drops lipstick (not out in the UK) in Persian Melon 585 was used in the American TV series, Pan Am. Marina’s post about beauty inspired by the series is here. Pan Am is a series about the Air Hostesses who work for the once illustrious airline…I admit I saw 3 shows and it wasn’t for me – beautiful to look at but […]
