Something new for you, this week; Friday’s video will star a special guest! Many of you will already have met Caroline Hirons (virtually, at least); she’s a beauty industry insider and a globally qualified advanced facialist and is a total wealth of information when it comes to anything skin related.

Beauty Reviews: Lancome Air de Teint, Clinique Feathering Mascara, Guerlain Maxi Lash

lancome air de teint foundation

Another bunch of beauty reviews for you; this time I’m “live testing” Lancome’s new Miracle Air de Teint foundation, Clinique’s new Feathering mascara and a second mascara, a violet-hued Maxi Lash version from Guerlain. The response to these videos seems to be very good, so I’ll keep on doing them so long as there’s stuff to test out. And there’s always stuff to test out, believe … Read More

What to Wear This Spring…

fashion idea what to wear for spring

Ah, ’tis finally here: the Spring Lookbook. I’ve collected together some of my favourite outfits and put them on video. It’s a bit like a moving photoshoot and I really hope that you like it – it took me a whole day to film it and another entire day to edit! If you can bring it upon yourself to give … Read More

Beauty Reviews: By Terry Foundation, Rimmel Bronzer and Estee Lauder Pure Envy Lipstick

The second instalment of my “beauty reviews” – I do hope that this will become a regular feature. It’s useful, I think, to see products being applied – obviously you can’t feel the texture yourself, but you get a good idea of how a foundation blends, or how pigmented a lipstick is or how much coverage a concealer gives. I hope that … Read More

An Easy (Affordable) Everyday Makeup Look

Some of the Youtube-phobes amongst you might actually like this video; it’s really short and I don’t speak! I’m planning on doing a few more music-only videos, mostly because it’s a relief not to have to sit there listening to the sound of my own voice for hours on end as I edit. I’m not sure that they’re as effective, … Read More

March Beauty Favourites

My March beauty favourites video has just gone live and it comes with a big apology: I completely and utterly forgot to do a February one! The perfectionist side of my brain is begging me to film it retrospectively so that I have a “full house”, but the time-poor, desperate-to-relax side of my brain is whispering ‘do you really want … Read More

Some Springtime Scent Suggestions…

fragrance reviews

Sorry for that quite horrid bit of alliteration in the post title; I’m writing this at just before one in the morning and, after a certain time, my brain switches into Standby Mode. I start thinking in clichés and overusing semicolons; I have to fight my own fingers in order to produce sentences with less than twelve commas. Lazy writing, … Read More

The “Vintage Vamp” Smokey Eye

I was very much in two minds as to whether I was going to post up my “Brit Awards” makeup look – there’s something about it that irks me. I think partly the lighting – I like filming in natural daylight so much more – but it could be, as I mentioned a week or so ago, the little “winged” … Read More

My Current Makeup Look (Winter into Spring)

I didn’t have a clue what to call this makeup look, so I went with something yawn-inducingly generic. Sorry. But I do love this little routine I’ve got going with the slightly sultry, metallic eye and the pretty flush of pink on the cheeks. And I absolutely can’t get enough of my current skin perfecting dynamic duo; Charlotte Tilbury’s Wonder Glow skin … Read More

I’m Sorry for Partying…

Yes, I know: “partying” used as a verb. As bad as “holidaying”, in my books – where do you holiday? - but still. I wore it emblazoned across my chest on a Milly NY t-shirt: “Sorry for Partying”. I wish I had time to “party” – the most I’ve managed recently was a couple of red wines at my local Turkish restaurant! … Read More
