This video! Blimey, it has taken an absolute age to put together! I wanted to film some of it in the rain and some of it in the sun, but it has taken WEEKS for the sun to appear! Now that it’s finally out, we are all sat sweltering in London and cursing the fact [...]

Due to popular demand, I am creating yet another category to go in my “scented things” section: this one will be called Orange-Blossom Scented Things.

Does this shampoo tube not remind you of Batman? Perhaps I have Batman on the brain  – the new movie comes out this Friday and I am a big fan of the other Christian Bale episodes! Look at that shiny, sexy, sleek packaging though – fit for the most chic of bathrooms. (I’ll stop thinking [...]


Massive Thanks – and Apologies…

Posted · 36 Comments

Just a quickie to say a massive thank you to everyone who voted for me in the Youtube contest. Results come in (inexplicably!) on the 30th July, so I shall be on holiday when they do, but will be sure to have my laptop on and waiting! I’m sorry to all of those who heard [...]

I love this image for the limited capsule collection from Chanel, Bombay Express. Dark eyes and nude lips on beautiful, perfect skin – the brows dark and groomed, a hint of a flush on the cheeks. You can’t see it properly in this image, but the skin is lit all over with a fine gold highlight [...]
