This is the second video in a series of three that follow my hair “journey” as I decide what I want to do with it. Those following on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram will already know what I decided to do with it, but lots of you won’t have seen my new do. Anyway, this video…

Palm Springs Watch Out!

I’m off to Palm Springs on Saturday to shoot fashion and beauty stories for TWO, which is Pixiwoo’s magazine. I’m there for a week with Sam Chapman from Pixiwoo, Electra Formosa who is a stylist and presenter on the Disney Channel and also Mr AMR, his assistant and a videographer. It’s going to be hard…

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.

Liam Fahy – on the lust-list.

OK, it’s not actually Liam himself on the lust-list, though I did meet him and a very lovely man he was too. No, it’s his shoes. Beautifully-crafted, elegant shoes. Unfortunately for the majority of us, these shoes are some of the most expensive in the world – retailing at between about £400 and £800. You…

Givenchy: Leather, Lipstick and the Perfect Red

Oh, oh, oh. Givenchy has pretty much hit the sexy-nail right on the head with their Le Rouge lipsticks. The outer case is metal and black leather – I’ll just repeat that: metal and black leather. It just feels so luxurious when you hold it in your hand! Mine has my name engraved into it (I know) which…
