Blush Me Beautiful!

I like a good rosy cheek. As a paler lady, the rosy cheek is my saviour as it makes me look less like Sophie Ellis Bextor in the midst of winter and more Cheryl Cole pre-exotic holiday. I do have…

Hair Miracles

It’s all very well and good me yabbering on about all these products I’m using, but what do you love? What are your must have hair products that help you out of a sticky situation? I asked my fabulous facebook…

Fake Bake for New Look

My guilty pleasure at the moment is New Look. I’ve been going back to the brand of my yoof and hooking myself up with some ace pieces of clothing at really quite cheap-as-chips prices. They seem to be on the…

Busy Bees

Currently in my handbag there are three lip balms and two lip glosses. (FYI they include Vaseline Rosy Lips, Blistex, Bourjois Effet 3D, Avon Glossy Delight and a cheapo thing I picked up from H&M) Wherever I go I have,…

If you ask people what their biggest beauty disaster has ever been, I guarantee you about 75% will say something to do with fake tan. Whether it’s  going orange, dying hands, streaky legs or generally just looking like you’ve been…

Fruity Follicles

I get sent quite a lot of stuff in the post from various brands and PR companies, but rarely am I wowed and exited so much that I rip open the packaging even though I’m already running 20 minutes late…

Nifty Nicola

Nicola Roberts, of Girls Aloud fame, launched her own range of cosmetics a good few years ago now (I want to say 2008) and created a stir in the industry. Dainty Doll was formulated especially for us ladies of a…

Essential Brushes you NEED in your make up bag

Makeup is only as good as the tools you use so it pays to have a good set of sturdy brushes in your makeup bag. Many make up artists have paid through the nose for their equipment but you need…

OMFG!

Today has been the most surreal day. I was happily tottering off to a meeting in Soho when I got a message on my twitter feed: “Congrats to all those who’ve been nominated in the Cosmo blog awards!” My response…
