Camping and Festival Beauty: part 1 of many…

Posted · 18 Comments

This is highly topical, what with thousands of utterly barmy people traipsing off to sit in fields covered in mud; some festival and camping recommendations. Recommendation number one would actually be: Hire a Winnebago, but failing that, some beauty advice is the best thing I can do for you. If you are off to Glasto, [...]

Good news, bad news and the death of The Forum.

Posted · 14 Comments

ARGH!! This was my face today (minus the boxing-glove border) when I found out that A Model Recommends had crashed. Unfortunately, there’s a possibility that it had something to do with the set-up of The Forum and so The Forum had to be put to death. I am going to try my extreme hardest to [...]

Paul & Joe Blue Horizon Collection

Posted · 9 Comments

I have spent the weekend trying to imagine that I’m somewhere far hotter and dryer than I actually am.

More Razors…

After my little post on hair removal last month (or was it the month before) I set about trying out a few new things. The first was an epilator, but more on that in a separate post because I need to work up the courage to give it a second try! The second thing was [...]

Rimmel Natural Bronzer

Posted · 7 Comments

I have recently rediscovered Rimmel’s natural bronzer in shade 021, “sunlight”. I first bought this on my Honeymoon when I had forgotten to pack a bronzer (duh) and I didn’t want to fork out for an expensive one when I had about ten thousand of them at home. The “sunlight” shade is really nice and [...]
