Soap & Glory Terrific Trio!

Posted · 13 Comments

I know that Soap & Glory always seem to have a 3-for-2 offer on in Boots, but when I passed through Liverpool Street Station today and saw the promotion running it reminded me of three (coincidentally!) products that I have been using on a very regular basis recently. The first is ‘The Breakfast Scrub’, which [...]

SPC Detoxifying Ginger Scrub

SPC Detoxifying Ginger Scrub

Posted · 5 Comments

Yesterday morning I went down to the Baglioni Hotel in Kensington to have a nose about in their SPC spa. SPC have a range of ‘decadent rose’ skincare products (I’m a sucker for anything with rose in it!) so I’m already something of a fan, but I was interested to see how effective their treatments [...]

My Mum, Let Loose.

Posted · 13 Comments

Be afraid, be so very, very afraid. “My Mum Says”, aka Christine my Mum (see here for some posts she has written for me) has started up a no-holds-barred beauty blog in which she documents her discoveries and disappointments. It’s quite possible that my mother is some kind of genetic freak because she has always [...]

Giant Me on Clapham High Street!

Posted · 16 Comments

Many thanks to @Kimanjj on Twitter who spotted me much larger than life on Clapham High Street. Yes, this is me, bashing up a piano with a skirting board. I’d just like to point out that it’s not as easy as it looks, especially whilst balancing on one leg, wearing high heels and pulling a [...]

Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer

Posted · 13 Comments

I’m a big fan of all these ‘no makeup’ makeup formulas that keep coming out – they just seem to keep getting better. Sheerer, more glowy, more natural… I have been using Murad’s new ‘dewy finish’ skin perfecting primer in place of any tinted moisturiser or foundation and I have had quite a few compliments [...]

Scott's "So Easy" Porridge Oats

Posted · 36 Comments

I have recently made a quite frankly lifechanging discovery. Porridge Oats in a sachet. Porridge has been one of my breakfasts ‘of choice’ for the past few years, but I had always made it in a saucepan, standing stirring the milk and oats for what seemed like an eternity before it was finally ready. After [...]

My new Belstaff Trailmaster Jacket

Posted · 20 Comments

A few weeks ago I went to the Belstaff sample sale and picked myself up a couple of bargains! Firstly, a skirt, but I’ll tell you about that when I’ve managed to actually get the blasted thing over my hips. (Yes, one of those optimistic purchases!) The real gem, though, is this Trailmaster jacket – [...]

Friday Flash Review: Clarins Crystal Lip Balm

Posted · 29 Comments

This week’s Friday Flash Review is brought to you from Sicksville, Nausea City. “OK, I’m going to let you into a little secret. Something that I’ve done that was all rather silly but couldn’t be helped. I mean literally couldn’t be helped. If someone had put me in a strangle-hold and told me not to [...]
