Cream British Shorthair in Sink!

Housekeeping in the Heat

Posted · 12 Comments

Whoo! It is H-O-T here in London! As a sun-worshipper you’d think that I’d have been basking in my roof-garden but no, I have been house-keeping. Not the domestic kind, but the technical computer-based kind. In yet another hurdle that has been set before me, my database decided to develop a bit of a problem [...]

Cooking Video: Prawn and Spinach Healthy Curry

Takeaway Alternative: Fresh Prawn & Spinach Curry

Posted · 34 Comments

Hooray! Another cooking video! This time I’m looking at a really quick and easy takeaway (takeout) alternative – the healthy curry. I am OBSESSED with homemade curries – I have every spice in the book and I probably make a curry at least once or twice a week. I’m not talking “tikka masala” here or [...]

The Amazing, All-New M&S Beauty Department!

I’m going to cut straight to the chase with this, because it’s late and I’m tired. I have been sat on the tube trying to think of some witty one-liners involving cotton knickers and my penchant for M&S value packs of tights, but I really can’t summon up the brainpower needed to sculpt a fine [...]

Posted · 27 Comments

Gorgeous Lancome lippies. Shades, from left to right: 159B, 146B, 200B and 340B. The three to the right are my favourites from the entire range, but there are loads of shades including quite a bonkers purple! I do envy anyone brave (or crazy) enough to wear purple on their lips. I have enough of a [...]

La Roche-Posay Efflacar H Compensating Soothing Moisturizer

Oily Skin that’s also Sensitive? A Solution…

Posted · 29 Comments

So many people email me or leave comments asking about products for oily skin that’s also sensitive. It’s quite a difficult little situation, really, because many soothing moisturisers and treatments are unsuitable for oily or blemish-prone skins – and also, I have no idea what people have been doing to their skin (if anything) to [...]

Old-School Glamour 2: Lancome and Jimmy Choo!

Posted · 9 Comments

Another “old-school” glamour photo for you before the full-length video comes out. (The first one posted last week and featured YSL and Polaroid.) This time I’m in Lancome’s Miss Coquelicot and Jimmy Choo’s Justine Sunglasses. I managed to smudge the lipstick as I was filming, so it’s a bit “hazy” down one side – ever [...]
