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
When I was about 10 I used to read ‘Girl Talk‘. Filled to the brim with news about the Spice Girls, puppies and came with a ‘free, fabulous choker!‘.

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
Apart from being the longest month, January also brings in it some welcome sales shopping. As you can imagine, I skip the clothes sales because the thought of rummaging through over-crowded racks and lining up at a till, only to eventually bring it back because even though it cost £10, that yellow jumper will go with nothing, brings me out in hives. Now a sale … Continue reading Skincare Sales
How cliche, a resolutions post on the 1st January. But there’s something about a new year that gives everyone some determination to accomplish something. Whether it’s professional or personal, food or exercise, everyone has something they want to work towards. This post is not a ‘New year, new me‘ it’s more about adjustments and being more mindful of my skin. I went to bed with … Continue reading Skin resolutions
