4 Years Of Blogging / My Holy Grail Products

First things first – I would be on my death bed right now if I didn’t have children – I’m hot, cold and ache EVERYWHERE but the kids will not allow lie ins on a bank holiday so 7.30 in the garden it was. I just snatched a moment to say hi from my computer [...]

NYC Photo Diary – Day 5

Above is a snapshot of our last day in the city, there are so many things we decided not to do because it was so cold we knew we’d just be miserable. Last time we were there it was the same time of year but we were not as central so we had no choice [...]

GRWM – Birthday Edition

Flashback post today from earlier this month when my hair was still a regular colour and I went out for my birthday with Emma – link – and Laura – link – and our respective partners. Hilarity ensued. But really though, this was my hurried makeup job before rushing off to collect Emma and her [...]

NYC Photo Diary – Day 4

Day 4 was our wedding anniversary so we wanted to amp it up a little, breakfast at the 30 Rock, Lunch at The Plaza and cocktails with dinner. I even found somewhere that sold individual cakes that yes were still way too big but affordable enough that I could justify one for just the two [...]

Leather vs Classic Uggs

 After Christmas there were some MEGA bargains to be had in the sales (as I’m positive you all took advantage of) but these boots were by far the best deal I snagged. I had wanted a new pair of Uggs for our trip to New York but had been putting it off because they’re just [...]

Current Go To Makeup – Winter Glow

Being a beauty blogger I switch up my makeup a lot but occasionally I’ll find a routine I really like and it sticks for a little while. Recently I’ve been all about dewy/glowy looking skin (which is so unlike me as my skin is naturally pretty oily) and the discovery of the Sleek Face Form [...]

My First Birchbox

At the end of last year I decided to give Glossybox another go but I wasn’t impressed so after Christmas I cancelled my subscription. I asked you which of the current service available you’d recommend/most like me to review and Birchbox was the out and out winner.. so I signed up. I was particularly interested [...]

December Beauty Favourites

It’s that time again! Today I’ll be running down my current product loves, I know many bloggers shun December favourites in favour of an annual favourites video but I will be doing both.. what I loved this month isn’t necessarily what I’ve loved all year so my 2013 monster video will be up on Friday.

Golden Eyes / Christmas Makeup Look

This year I decided that I was going to stop neglecting my more expensive items and make a space online where I could talk about them, this video went up on my new channel dedicated to [...]

Rockabilly Glam #7Days7Ways With @UmbertoGiannini

This was another of my preferred styles and yet I’d have never thought to try it. Lots of volume up top but minimal product, no backcombing and a few curls in the lower layer. Much quicker to do than you might think. I sprayed some Backcomb In A Bottle at my roots, worked it in [...]

Bleach London Home Hair Colours

 Before my recent brighter ombre I dabbled with these temporary dyes from Bleach London. I did a first impressions video but i wanted to follow up with my thoughts after the colours have washed away and let you know whether I would use them again. Given that my hair wasn’t super light I wasn’t expecting [...]
