Beauty In my Lingerie Drawer

Beauty In my Lingerie Drawer…

Posted · 14 Comments

Look what I found in my lingerie drawers! (OK, one of my lingerie drawers.) A selection of pretty things – what a nice surprise! The two boxes on the left contain French Talc and fig-scented bath “bombs” – little sacks of fabric that fragrance the bathwater beautifully. Or they did, they’re quite old now so [...]

A Chat with my Colourist!

Posted · 22 Comments

For a while now, my tresses have been cared for by the wonderful people at Trevor Sorbie in Covent Garden. I thought that it was high time I had a little chat with my colourist, John Spanton, and asked him exactly what he did with my hair. It’s all about the cool tones, apparently! John [...]

Posted · 9 Comments

 Getting all arty with my montage there… Five glamorous lipsticks, two pairs of very cool sunglasses.

A Safe Tan, Faster?

I’ll hold my hands up and admit to the fact that I like having a tan. It’s almost like swearing these [...]

Sorry, went a bit overboard with my title there! But do you like my image? I have decided that – wherever possible, and time permitting – I will try and provide my own images from now on rather than stock images. I used the PR images until now for simple product shots, because they were [...]

Surprise Polaroids on Google Images!

Posted · 26 Comments

I am at a total loss as to when these polaroids were taken! I absolutely love the outfit! It’s a shame that I’ve kind of shrunk that skirt – maybe I’ll dig it out and see if I can re-shape it. It’s weird though; I have a complete memory fail when it comes to these [...]
