This afternoon, I put on a Caroline Hirons YouTube video in the background while I was tidying up the bedroom (rock and roll!). And as I was folding up my husband’s trousers which is obviously too complicated a task, she mentioned her friend who has become the editor of NEW BEAUTY MAGAZINE. I stopped said folding, rewound the video 20 seconds to check I wasn’t … Continue reading A beauty magazine- it does exist!
Following on yesterday’s post, I went on to Elle magazine’s website and read the article ‘4 Beauty Treatments you should do during Winter AKA right now’. One of the articles I shared in yesterday’s post was arguing that those with the most money will have the best skin because the treatments which work are the ones which cost the big bucks. So according to Elle, … Continue reading My winter skin prep
A super quick post today but wanted to share some interesting articles I’ve come across either directly or have been shared with me. WWD.com L’Oreal and La-Roche Posay have launched a wearable skin pH tracker designed to monitor your skin and therefore customise the recommendation of products. Scientists and dermatologists see a direct link with skin pH and skin health and therefore being able to … Continue reading In the news

From 18 onwards it was all about Glamour & Elle and at … Continue reading Do beauty magazines exist?
When I originally read about this new trend, I assumed it meant using less water within your skincare routine. This made total sense to me. Over the last year, I’ve used less and less tap water both morning and night. I live in an area where the water is very hard and to be honest I don’t want to dilute all that good product with … Continue reading Water-less beauty
I read this quote today from Tamara Hill-Norton, founder of active lifestyle brand Sweaty Betty. Time and time again, it’s easy to forget to take a minute (or sixty) for yourself whether you have a demanding job, active social life, children, etc. December is a great example of this, when before you know it, Christmas parties are over, you shopped like a maniac and went back … Continue reading ‘Self-care is not selfish’
From saving yesterday to (hypothetically) splurging today… If I had to decide between buying an item of clothing or an item of skincare, the skincare would always win. Not surprising as I write a blog about beauty products and not fashion. Don’t get me wrong, I know my Balenciaga from my Balmain, but you can wear a high street blazer as if it came straight … Continue reading Shelfie Wishlist
