Shopping the trends for TK Maxx “Do Your Thing”

TK Maxx* have just launched a new campaign called “Do Your Thing” and I went to the Charing Cross Road branch in London to do just that. My thing. Which is, if you hadn’t noticed before, shopping.

Sunday Tittle Tattle

Sunday Tittle Tattle (noun?): everything from the week that I have forgotten to post about, in easy brunch-sized chunks… 1) I should be in Palm Springs by now. If you didn’t read my post the other day then I’ll repeat myself so that you don’t feel left out:  I’m there shooting a series of fashion…

My First Ever Makeup Brush

The first makeup brush that I ever bought was the Prescriptives Powder Brush – it’s now so old that it’s actually the Prescriptives Powder “Bru”, as one eagle-eyed Instagram follower pointed out. I bought this brush (see photograph for general condition and appearance) because the makeup artist at one of my very first modelling shoots recommended…

March Beauty Favourites

Quite Clinique-heavy, this video, but by total coincidence. It just so happened that the cleansing balm came to my attention at the same time as the utterly superb compact foundation and then I had been testing the new Repairwear eye cream which fit quite well with the recent post that I did on buttery, rich eye…
