My Three Key Hair Styles | AD

The smell of Elnett hairspray is the smell of my twenties. The smell of my entire modelling career, really, wherever in the world it has taken me. Because I can’t think of many photoshoots I’ve been at where there hasn’t been a cloud of Elnett escaping through the door of the hair and makeup room; it’s…

The High Street Mascara with High-End Performance

Last week I wrote about my non-surgical eye lift revelation which was, probably to many people’s disappointment, simply the power of a good mascara. No trickery, no miracle-promising skincare ingredients, just simple lash definition and a bit of lift at the roots to send things skywards rather than letting them droop. I won’t repeat myself;…

A Tour of my Kitchen

  “Tour” is a bit of a grand word to use, isn’t it, for what amounts to a quickish snoop around the room that I cook and eat in, but there we go. It’s a thing, online, apparently. House tour, office tour, tour of my makeup kit, bathroom cabinet tour, tour of my shoe closet. The internet is…

Bikini Horrors and The Miraclesuit

Before I went on holiday (yes, the holiday post is coming up, I’m still recovering from the night-flight-with-toddler-and-baby) I bought a load of bikinis and swimming costumes from Figleaves so that I could try them on in the relative comfort of my own home.

The Non-Surgical Eye Lift

OK, you have to bear with me here, because the revelation that follows is so unbelievably obvious I’m almost embarrassed to post about it.

It’s not an optical illusion-creating makeup trick or an expert-endorsed skincare regime and it’s not…

Weekly Window Shop: Guccification

I have been spending a dangerous amount of time staring at various accessories on the Gucci website. Scarves, headbands, belts, costume jewellery, shoes. I wouldn’t normally tease myself in this way, but Gucci seem to have silently crept in and infiltrated every corner of my online (and offline) world. They’ve completely nailed what I want…

Sunscreen Review: Vichy Tan Enhancing Solar Protective Water

Sunscreen reviews: it’s been a while. Mainly because (until recently) I hadn’t been anywhere hot for almost four years. And to properly test out sun protection, to really get to grips with the texture and the effectiveness and the pros and the cons of a particular product, you need a good long stint of testing…
