Posted · 8 Comments

Some gorgeous, soothing moisturisers for skin that’s on the dry or sensitive side or that’s beginning to feel the effects of the slightly cooler weather. All of the face creams and lotions above are very calming, I find, and though they each vary in their density and richness, the final results are the same; happy, moisturised [...]

Buying a Winter Coat? Read this First…

Posted · 8 Comments

And here it is; the Fluffy Coat and Faux Fur lookbook. Do not buy a winter coat until you’ve seen these beauties; they’re warm, comfortable and totally on-trend (if you bother with that kind of thing!) and work equally well worn casually as they do thrown over something smart.

Posted · 7 Comments

I’ve been busy shooting fashion features and videos, so do excuse the sudden torrent of style posts!

  There’s a huge trend for big, fluffy teddy-bear coats and faux-furs, this season. And I must say that although big, furry coats are very attention-grabbing, (something I’m usually not too comfortable with, believe it or not), there’s something almost protective in their massiveness and fluffy bulk. They make you feel strong and confident rather than [...]

Oh ho ho, I am so ready for deep and sexy wintertime perfumes and Yves Saint Laurent’s Black Opium is just about as sexy as they come. I mentioned Chanel’s Coco Noir Parfum last week – it’s a very concentrated, sexed-up version of the popular eau de toilette – but I must say that Black Opium has knocked my socks off. (I’d use ruder [...]

Bras, Broken Teeth and the Launch of Zoella Beauty

I had a bit of a crazy day in town yesterday – jam-packed with meetings and errands and things to do – and so I thought that I would “vlog” it. (Regular readers will know how much I detest the word vlog; I will quite literally jump for joy the day it becomes something else. Because [...]

I can tell you, with absolute hand-on-the-heart conviction, that The Body Shop’s Colour Crush nail polish in Just Peachy is a hundred-percent dupe for one of my favourite shades, Chanel’s Holiday. I have tested it in all lights and it is exact in every way – I’ve even made Mr AMR examine my nails painted with the two shades and he [...]
