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!‘. At 15 it was ‘CosmoGirl‘ telling me the magic formula of how to get a perfect Californian tan (how irresponsible) and ‘zap that zit‘. 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
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
Rapunzel I am not. At the age of 3, my tactic for long locks was to wear a towel on my head and let it flow behind me saying ‘make your hair longer’. Sadly, this isn’t a look I can get away with in my mid-30s but the point is, my hair is not my favourite feature. From teenager to early twenties I had a … Continue reading Hair care- don’t care?

I love a great facial and in my opinion finding a great facial is like finding the perfect pair of jeans: Highlights your best features Makes you like your ‘not-so-favourite’ features A great investment and worth the price tag Prepare for compliments There are a lot of people who don’t like it when others touch their face. I agree. Anyone who has not just … Continue reading Don’t underestimate the power of a great facial
About a week and a half ago as I sat in a hotel room on a work trip, my colleague turned to me and said ‘products are really your passion, aren’t they?’. It’s worth noting that as she asked me this I was sitting there with a sheet mask plastered to my face. She isn’t wrong, nor is this the first time someone has commented … Continue reading Why start a blog now?
