Another year, another Insta-trend. This time, to celebrate Instagram’s 10-year anniversary, they are asking people to post a 10-year-challenge: putting up a photo from 2009 and a photo from 2019. The results are what you would expect- embarrassing fashion choices, questionable hairstyles, dramatic body changes and the usual comedic memes. In 2009, I graduated from university in London and finished my part time job at … Continue reading Skincare advice to my 22-year-old self
I discovered liquid exfoliators when I upped my skincare regimen about 4 years ago. Traditionally, exfoliators were physical with microbeads (bad for the environment), granules or sugar. If you lived in the UK or US during the 2000s, chances are you bought a couple of St Ives Apricot Scrubs in that time but (thankfully) since then, the exfoliation game has come on a long way. … Continue reading Liquid Exfoliators
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.

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 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
