Bliss Triple Oxygen

I feel bad, because you’ll probably not have a beauty review tomorrow – no doubt I will bang something or other out on the keyboard, but it’s doubtful whether it will be coherent or interesting. So here; I’ve done a post in advance. It’s tomorrow’s but it’s today. Happy New Year! I have been using the Bliss Triple Oxygen products … Read More

December Beauty Round-Up

Well. Here we are, on the very last day of 2010. Are we all doing lovely, exciting things tonight? I am off to a dinner party and I’m taking the cheese course. I popped to La Fromagerie in Marylebone yesterday to pick some up and came away with my own bodyweight in Gouda, as well as a huge chunk of … Read More

Fifteen Hair Favourites

In early November I had to clear out my bathroom so that work on it could commence (I’m having a super-duper ultra-designer ridiculously-luxurious bathroom fitted for which I have had to sell a kidney and one of my knee-joints) and whilst I was doing my clearing-out, I made some haircare videos.  I then promptly forgot about them and left them … Read More

C.O. Bigelow

I popped into C.O. Bigelow whilst in New York – not for anything in particular, I was just trying to escape the bitter cold. I think that the staff knew that, because they followed me about until finally I felt compelled to leave. But not before I managed to take a good few covert pictures! I have a real knack … Read More

Grand Soho Nails

Grand Soho Nails is in South Village, New York City, on Sullivan Street between Prince and Spring. Now I know that it’s a bit of a stretch to be discussing a nail bar in Soho, New York when I spend most of my time in London, but this isn’t just about Grand Soho Nails, it’s about the New York manicure … Read More

When is your hair NOT your hair?

Excuse the cryptic title, please – all will become clear in good time. How are you all? Did you have a wonderful Christmas? Eat too much? Drink too much? I do hope so! I’m taking this opportunity, this ‘lull’ before the new year, to write about all of the things that have been happening recently – to tie up loose … Read More

Naked Skincare

I have been testing out the new skincare range from Naked, and I think that it’s great! I love the fact that Naked is affordable, easily available (Boots!) and is so much more luxurious than you would ever expect. The smell of the Orange Blossom Body Wash (one of my favourite products this year!) is divine and really gives premium … Read More

Deborah Lippmann – Happy Birthday!

Happy Boxing Day! Did you all have a lovely Christmas Day? Stuffed full of food and drink? I hope so! A nice and jolly beauty post for you today! That’s why there are so many exclamation marks! How ridiculously fun and cheerful is Deborah Lippmann’s polish, “Happy Birthday”? It’s a clear varnish packed full of miniscule metallic confetti and it … Read More

The (Beauty) Queen's Speech.

Merry Christmas Everyone! I sincerely hope that you’re having a fantastic day – it’s quite possible that nobody will be around to watch this little message, but I hope that a few of you will catch it when you have some down-time. It’s a little token of my appreciation of you all, although a rather ‘merry’ one! Enjoy!

Uh-Oh – Last Minute Christmas Shopping?

Have you still got presents to buy? Yes? Oh dear. Oh deary, deary me. You’re in deep doo-doo aren’t you? Better get yourself off to Boots and grab some 3-for-2 offers! That’s where I find myself every single Christmas Eve, without fail. Not this year, I hasten to add, because I have been ultra-organised and have thought of everything thanks to … Read More
