Dry Me Up, Scottie

As you well know by now (If you don’t, why haven’t you been paying attention?) I use a lot of Batiste. Half of it’s laziness, half of it’s necessity – I spend a lot of time in tents and fields.…

Glurple and Gleige

I’m so excited to see all the Autumn colours coming through already. I’m so over corals and pastels and ready for the hardcore stuff. Nails Inc have just released four fab new colours for the season, and I want all…

Lovely Lather

Soap. The very word makes my epidermis run away and hide in a corner. If you want to dry your skin out and make you look like a Victorian street urchin then this baby can hook you up, no problem.…

Picking Blackberries

I’m fully ready for Autumn. My Summer clothes are practically packed away, my boots are out and I’ve mentally wiped the sunny season from my mind. The beauty industry is ready for Autumn too it seems, with new collections launching…

Tweet Tweet, Spring has Sprung

Well, maybe not – it’s practically Autumn! I blame the inspiration on the little birdies below. I love discovering new pretty things, even more so if they come in the form of something beauty related. My eyes sprung open (imagine…

Counter Service

I’m not scared of much in life (bar rollercoasters that go upside down and maggots) but I do get terrified at the thought of approaching a cosmetics counter. You can never just ‘casually browse’ at a counter, you have to…

Shea Me Your Barnet

L’Occitane make some fab skin care products and, as my previous posts explain, I’m now in love with a lot of them. Their hair care was recommended to me by one of their lovely shop assistants, so what’s a girl…

Oil Me Up

My hair routine in the morning goes a little like this… shampoo, condition, add some serum and hair straightening cream, spritz with heat protection spray, blowdry and finish with shine spray. So that involves four products after washing, even more…

No 7 is No 1

As a beauty blogger I get sent a lot of products to try and review, I’m emailed hoards of press releases and a trawl round my local Boots turns into a research project. Very rarely do I now go into…

Lipgloss Heaven

If there were statistics on the most lost piece of make-up in a girl’s bag I would guarantee it would be lipgloss. No matter how many I put in my bag I always seem to lose them – I swear…

Safe Pouting

We all like to go out, have a few drinks and a dance with our girlie mates. In fact that’s probably what the majority of you will be doing this weekend. But with drink spiking and date raping on the…

The Apothecary

Yesterday I was invited to the launch of House of Fraser’s new specialist beauty department, The Apothecary. Taking inspiration from the rustic shops of yester-year, the new fixtures and fittings really create an air of intrigue and excitement around the…
