The Classic Red Lip: A New Way To Wear It

Here’s the classic red lip but with a new way to wear it. Which makes it the un-classic red lip, I suppose. It’s soft and diffused, the edges are patted down and blurry – it’s easier and more wearable than the traditional…

Life Update: Captain’s Log

“Captain’s log. Stardate 031118. I have been lost in cyberspace for over four hours and rescue seems unlikely. The wall lights I’ve been trying to buy for the stairs and landing have eluded me for almost an entire calendar year…

Things You Didn’t Know You Needed: Edition 1

Not that I’m becoming an expert on earplugs or anything (I am) but I have discovered some foam ones with quite a useful feature. The official, technical term for this feature is “slow rebound” but to you and I, it’s…

Jazzy Details: The Striped-Cuff Cardi

(links marked * are affiliate links, for more info see disclaimer below post) After my latest video I had almost as many questions about the cardigan I was wearing as the skincare products I featured – something about the striped…

A new video for you here, but as it’s proved to be such a popular one already I’ll give you a bit of an extended blurb. The Five Beauty Products that Changed My Skin has a slightly confusing title, I suppose, because…

Autumn, Dry Skin and the Aveeno Dermexa range | AD

After the best summer in living memory (for me, at least; those older have enjoyed banging on about the summer of ’76 which was, of course, hotter, longer and tougher) we find ourselves hurtling into autumn. The leaves are starting…

Bap Scooping, Boot Slouching and 100 Denier Tights

Here’s one for those of you who wanted a more affordable take on the “floral noir” trend; a delightfully frippy little number that’s almost more lingerie than it is clothing, thanks to the pretty lace trim and tie-front. Obviously it must be…
