Monumental News: I’ve launched my own Dry Shampoo!

Posted · 106 Comments

Something of a momentous post, this one, because today is the day that my dry shampoo range, COLAB, launches. What dry shampoo range? I hear you cry. This is the first I’ve bloody heard about it! Apologies, my dearest readers, but I’ve been under a bit of a gagging order and haven’t been able to talk about the range [...]

If you follow my Instagram and Twitter feeds, you’ll already know that last week I got to do something quite amazing and magical. After thirteen years in “the business” I’m not that easily impressed by fashion or beauty stuff (I’ve worn a lot of fine dresses and had a lot of makeup put on my face!) but Dior [...]
