Sh*tfit of the Day: Crap Delivery Services

I’m getting seriously, seriously disgruntled with some of the parcel delivery services in the UK at the moment. I’m not talking about Parcelforce or Fedex (though they have their moments), I’m talking about these shoddy little local services that employ people in unmarked vans who post scraps of photocopied paper through the letterbox without ringing…

The Omorovicza Spring Beauty Gift with Purchase

I interrupt my London Fashion Week proceedings for one thing and one thing only: the Omorovicza Spring Beauty Gift. I’ve always been an absolute sucker for a “gift with purchase” – the back of my wardrobe is stuffed full of those little makeup and toiletries bags that you inevitably get with your selection of “luxury…

Triumph: Underpinning Fashion Week

And we’re off! London Fashion Week. For those who detest every mention of LFW, breathe a sigh of relief – I’m off covering the event for Triumph so you won’t hear from me again until Tuesday. (I’ve scheduled some beauty posts in between for you to enjoy!) Those who want to soak up every last…

Dior Overcurl Mascara – Welcome to my It List

Another week, another new mascara launch. There are so many mascara launches that it boggles my brain, but I’m quite a picky old customer when it comes to my lash-lengthening products, so I don’t often post about them.

Meet me at the Maison? Brunch and Bras…

This London Fashion Week (15th-19th February) I am on quite an exciting mission. I’m working with Triumph International, official catwalk lingerie suppliers for LFW, to be their “eyes and ears” and report on what’s happening both backstage and on the catwalk. I’ll be taking over their Twitter, Instagram and Facebook feeds and racing around between…

The V-Word and Rose-Scented Things.

Yes, we do have to talk about it. The V-Word. Valentine’s Day. Personally, it makes me want to puke and Mr AMR is entirely with me on that one. (Though I still make him get me a card, just because.) However: if there is an excuse to procure myself things that smell of roses, beauty things, then I…

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm Review

I do love a good cleanser – a proper, massage-it-in, take-it-off-with-a-cloth kind of cleanser. If I have a full face of makeup (and actually, even if i don’t) I like to spend a good while massaging, cleansing and rinsing thoroughly, usually repeating the process to make sure that I’ve got all of that deep-seated grime…

Sunday Tittle Tattle

Sunday Tittle Tattle (noun?): everything from the week that I have forgotten to post about, in easy brunch-sized chunks… Oh hullo everyone! I hope that you’re having a lovely weekend? As usual, I’m writing this on Friday night because a) I have no life these days and b) I’m shooting for Daily Mix again on Saturday, leaving…
