Best of Spring Makeup Collection

face makeup review

Stupidly, I tidied my beauty room in a hurry. I mean “tidy” in the loosest possible sense of the word, because what I really did was open up all of the drawers in my storage units and sweep everything into them. This doesn’t bode well for any product that has less than eye-catching packaging; I fear that a good few “springtime” products … Read More

I could have never predicted that I’d own a “fluro boucle jacket” but I do, and I love it. It’s a bright little dose of fun in these changeable weather days when it could rain, snow, hail or ignite into glorious sunshine at any given point in the day. I have Ree from ReallyRee to thank for this particular find – … Read More

Favourite Ballerinas on Sale…

fashion blog post ballet pumps

My favourite, most comfy ballet pumps are on sale at Office – £39.20 instead of £56. I’ve written about these shoes before – they are soft and fit well and look a lot more expensive than they actually are. I’ve just bought a pair in “natural” with the black toe cap and also the navy and white, as mine (from … Read More

Sunday Tittle Tattle (noun?): everything from the week that I have forgotten to post about, in easy brunch-sized chunks… 1) I am about to start testing a new product from Kiehl’s – the Skin Rescuer.

For my latest video at The Telegraph I have been experimenting with the new range of healthy glow powders from Chanel, Les Beiges. Silly me, never reading any kind of press “blurb”. but I really thought that they were supposed to be bronzers! In a roundabout way, you could say that if you opt for a shade darker than your skin tone (that … Read More

Sequins and Lashes in Ibiza…

Two fashion posts in one week – what a treat! This is actually half-fashion-half-beauty, because although I talk you through my rather sparkly daytime Ibiza outfit, I also reveal a new mascara product that, for quite a number of people, will be very exciting. Max Factor’s Lashfinity 3 Day Mascara is a tint that will stay on the lashes for 3 days … Read More

Review: Philip Kingsley No Scent No Colour Conditioner

haircare review

I love this conditioner! I cannot believe that I have only this year discovered it – I think that it is definitely right up there with my most favourite haircare products ever! It’s very light, so perfect for finer hair like mine, but also very very conditioning, so great if your hair is coloured, chemically-treated or a little damaged. If you’re looking … Read More

I was in Ibiza last week and you’ll hear more about that shortly, but for now I wanted to post up a quick video that I took on my iPhone.
