Cheekathon on the Good Ship Benefit

Working in London means that what can be a dull day in Westminster can quickly turn into a sunny day messing about on the river. And when a top brand gets together with a top retailer for an event that introduces you to such a darling product then all the boxes are ticked! The Venue… Continue reading Cheekathon on the Good Ship Benefit


Pro Studio Strobe Cream from Freedom

Ok so I've had a little to say about strobing in the past when I showed you Freedom Strobing Palettes here. Now they've added a Pro Studio Strobe Cream. It's not so much the kind of highlighter that comes in a variety of shades that give your skin a warm glow it's comes in just… Continue reading Pro Studio Strobe Cream from Freedom


Summer Shimmer Time?

It's getting to that time when the clocks go forward to British Summer Time and you want to get that summer look and yet the sun is nowhere to be seen and your skin looks duller than a foggy day in London. And so it's right about now that I reach for my favourite bronzer/highlighter… Continue reading Summer Shimmer Time?

Beauty, health


Last night I was invited to one of the brightest most colourful and fun events that I've been to in a while the #MYDREAMSUPERDRUG Event. With balloons covering the ceiling giving a nod to the Covent Garden art installation and a cheeky santa and his companion in attendance there was a real upbeat feel to the evening.… Continue reading #MYDREAMSUPERDRUG Event

The highlighter has a slight sheen and is great… Continue reading #FaceTheDay Professional Palette from Collection

Review – Collection Gorgeous Glow Highlighter Palette

This Collection Gorgeous Glow highlighter palette is like summer in a little block!  The stripes of colour are reminiscent of sand and tan and golden sun. My summer holiday is long gone and my tan is beginning to fade so I've been reaching for products that keep the memory alive. This palette is highly pigmented… Continue reading Review – Collection Gorgeous Glow Highlighter Palette


What’s on my face #3

I started off this morning thinking that it might be a good idea to try out my new La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL BB Cream as it's the weekend and I could get away with a bare-faced look as I won't be in the office. Then I got to thinking maybe I could try out one… Continue reading What’s on my face #3


Under the Influence

I've always thought of myself as a bit different from your average beauty blogger. Aside from the obvious age difference (most bloggers are 30-40 years younger than me!) I've never bought products "for the blog" or to complete a collection or bought something just because someone else says I should. My normal rules are that… Continue reading Under the Influence
