Sunday Tittle Tattle

Sunday Tittle Tattle (noun?): everything from the week that I have forgotten to post about, in easy brunch-sized chunks… 1) Those who wanted a list of the products used in the Burberry Nude video for the Telegraph, it’s here: telegraph-burberry-nude 2) If you’ve been on holiday in a soundproofed box and missed my important Telegraph news, you [...]

Happy Hair Day…

Posted · 18 Comments

I love it when my hair is exactly as I want it. The colour, the style, the length. This week I feel as though I’ve hit jackpot, hair-wise; I had my colour done last week at the ever-brilliant Trevor Sorbie Covent Garden. Faultless, as usual. Nathan (John was on his hols!) added some darker, more [...]

Lancome Advent Calendar

Lancome Advent Calendar – Ding Dong.

Posted · 25 Comments

Oh yes please. An advent calendar stuffed full of perfectly formed Lancome miniatures? This beats the chocolate-filled versions hands down! What’s not to like? I particularly need/want/like the La Vie Est Belle miniature; it makes me grit my teeth with longing. Why do I have this ridiculous obsession with tiny samples of things? I still have that gigantic box full [...]

I actually love those [...]

August Beauty Favourites

Posted · 15 Comments

Fashionably late with these beauty favourites for August. It’s quite a random old selection, too, sorry about that! Some brilliant little bits and pieces though; I know I’ve mentioned the Garnier BB Cream before, but I have been using it loads so it deserved another mention. I have tried zillions of these BB Creams now [...]

Some Eye Creams with SPF…

Posted · 19 Comments

I’m not sure that it’s entirely necessary to use an eye cream with SPF. Not in the UK, anyway. Most of us, if we are out in “normal” daylight, will be wearing some kind of concealer or foundation that contains an SPF. If it’s very hot, then we’ll usually have taken our face sunscreen around [...]
