pink and girlie

Think Pink

The new Chanel summer make-up range has gone all girly with pretty pinks and corals to brighten your look. Pink generally isn’t my colour, but the ‘pop’ Gossimer lip gloss is gorgeous – naturally pink, shiny without the sparkle so perfect for day. The moisturising bronzing powder in Terre D’Or is also a bit of […]

supersmooth shampoo

Hair product of the month!

There’s nothing more irritating than seeing a perfect hair colour fade into blah. But to keep your colour intact for as long as possible, you need to either steer clear of shampooing, which isn’t an option…or go for a good colour conserving hair care range.

Bronze Goddess

Always judge a book by its cover…

Great make-up should not only make you look great, it should also make you feel great. There’s nothing I love more than a stunning little palette of lipgloss, or a funky little lipstick case. One brand that has consistently produced the most glamorous make-up is Estee Lauder. Gold-rimmed casing, heavy glass bottles, and those gorgeous […]

Sea salt in a  wooden bowl

I was once given the tip of bathing in two big glassfuls of Epsom salts, while sipping […]

coffee

A new take on the delights of coffee…

On a recent daily run to my local coffee shop, I came away with a little more than I bargained for…a cup full of used ground coffee and a promise to try out ‘the best body scrub ever’…So a few hours later, I’m standing in the bathroom scrubbing away with handfuls of coffee mixed with […]

Mascara

Best mascara on the market?

I’m a huge fan of Max Factor Mascaras – and the newest to grace the shelves is the Lash Extension Effect. For those with thick eyelashes in need of some lengthening, it’s perfect. But for those with sparser eyelashes, you’re probably best off sticking with Max Factor Masterpiece Max, my all-time favourite.
