Ricky’s, NYC

Posted · 17 Comments

Back to New York, because there are still a few more things that I want to tell you about my trip and keep forgetting to! We’re beauty shopping again, and we’re going from C.O. Bigelow’s to Ricky’s – from the traditional apothecary to the modern beauty supply store, and also from slightly wary staff, to [...]

Paige Verdugo Jeggings

Posted · 14 Comments

The picture doesn’t do them justice, but I have to tell you how pleased I am with my new Paige jeggings. They’re soft, comfortable and supremely flattering. Unlike many cheaper jeggings, they are structured and have clever stitching features that support and slim the legs and bum. I love them and you will no doubt [...]

Hotel Friends in Dusseldorf, Germany

Posted · 5 Comments

I’ve just stayed in a great hotel in Germany, the ‘Hotel Friends’. I have to admit that when the taxi pulled up outside I was a little dubious; the hotel looked as though it was over a row of shops, and there was no lobby on ground level. Entering the hotel felt like going into [...]

Friday Flash Review: Miners Dip & Define

Posted · 8 Comments

I really enjoyed writing last week’s Friday Flash Review – spontaneous, rambling and somewhat therapeutic. For me, at least. For you, it probably made no sense and was about as helpful as a hysterical hippy in a hostage situation. (That was off the top of my head – this is Friday Flash, and it’s all [...]

Makeup Artist in the Spotlight: Geraldine Shaker

Posted · 10 Comments

I’m always asking makeup artists lots of questions. I mean lots. From the minute I step into the makeup room, I’ll be poking about in all of the products, talking at a million miles an hour about new launches and favourite eyeshadows and best foundations. I have a feeling that I drive them slightly potty [...]

Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Facial Wash

Posted · 22 Comments

I have been using this facial wash for over a week now, and I can’t believe that I have only just found out about it. It’s pretty dear for a facewash (£27.60) which is probably why I have ignored it in the past, but this month you get a free full-sized Balancing Lavender Toner with [...]
