Beauty Worth Waiting For…

Posted · 14 Comments

Two lovely beauty things that have caught my eye, and they both have waiting lists before they’ve even hit the shelves for the first time. How do you feel about waiting lists for special edition makeup items? Are you are complete makeup obsessive who simply has to have the latest eyeshadow shades or collectable compact? Or do [...]

October Skincare and Beauty Favourites

Posted · 16 Comments

Is it me, or does the last beauty favourites video only seem as though it went up about a week ago? I feel as though I’ve been sucked into some kind of space/time vortex! Oh well.

Aromatherapy Associates: Sickbed Stuff

Ugh. I feel absolutely shocking. I have dragged myself out of bed to do a bit of essential admin, but my head feels as though there’s a cannon ball rolling about inside it and I’m sitting slumped over as though I’m suffering the world’s most epic hangover. If you don’t hear from me for a [...]

How to Cover Dark Circles

Posted · 17 Comments

As promised, a video dedicated to undereye circles and ways of disguising them. My dark circles are ridiculous today – so much so that I’m almost regretting filming the makeup video when I did, at the end of last week. It would have all looked so much more dramatic if I had waited and filmed [...]

It manages to be both glamorous and lighthearted all at the same time, which [...]

Colab Dry Shampoo – The “Thank You” Giveaway!

Sorry to my Daily Fix subscribers; this post should have made it into your inboxes yesterday, but I was transferring some video files and my internet had a meltdown. It can’t handle anything more taxing than sending an email attachment, so trying to transfer 1.5GB of video just about killed it off. But anyway, here we are, [...]

Issues with my Pony Shoes

Posted · 17 Comments

Well I think that these “pony effect” leather court shoes from River Island are just marvellous. I ordered them for a shoot and when they arrived I was actually quite taken aback at how great the quality was; lovely leather, a sturdily attached heel and neat finishing at the seams. I also loved the black [...]
