For every one of the "big" bloggers who manage to turn their blog into a business there are thousands of us that manage their blog alongside a full time job. Here's my second set of blogging FAQs: Q1. How do you find the time? Well it's odd isn't it. They say that if you really… Continue reading Blogging FAQs -Juggling a blog with a full-time job


Urban Decay Sprays

I'm sure that most people have an item or two of make-up from Urban Decay - perhaps one of the naked palettes? I'm not so sure though that everyone has heard so much about their spray products so I thought it would be an idea to fill you in. First is the Urban Decay B6… Continue reading Urban Decay Sprays

Review – Max Factor Masterpiece Nude Palette 03 Rose Nudes

I've fallen for this pretty spring-like Masterpiece Nude Palette from ¬†Max Factor in 03 Rose Nudes. This is one of three in the range but this one is best suited to cool tones you can see the other two here. The colours are a mix of mattes and shimmers that can combine for a cute… Continue reading Review – Max Factor Masterpiece Nude Palette 03 Rose Nudes


Urban Decay brings a little bit of LA to Brent Cross

Last week a whole bunch of us Urban Decay loving bloggers were invited to take a closer look at their newly opened store based in London's Brent Cross Shopping Centre. The team there were excited to tell me that this store is a mini version of their Los Angeles branch! Well, they say that good… Continue reading Urban Decay brings a little bit of LA to Brent Cross


Urban Decay Eyshadow Primer Potion

  Now this little potion has been around for a while, and I've tried it before but never written a review because it wasn't really the best product for me. Now don't get me wrong, it did all the things it promised but I found that the formula emphasised the crepiness of my lids as… Continue reading Urban Decay Eyshadow Primer Potion


Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm

When beauty balms or BB creams were first available I tried one or two but mainly they were very similar to tinted moisturisers in the way that they looked and apart from a few days in the summer I felt I needed more coverage. Over time though they have evolved and recently I've discovered that… Continue reading Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm


Discovering Eyelash Primers

Do you ever discover a product that you never knew you needed and then you try it and you wonder how you ever managed with out it? Well that's just what happened to me with eyelash primers. Although it wasn't a very straight forward story. To be fair it never is with me is it!… Continue reading Discovering Eyelash Primers


Review – Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette

Recently I admitted that the Gwen Stefani palette was the first I'd ever tried from Urban Decay. But what I didn't tell you was on the very same day I became the proud owner of a second Urban Decay palette - the Naked 2 Basics palette. This one is much more of an essentials palette… Continue reading Review – Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette


Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette

From the moment I started blogging the most talked about palettes were from Urban Decay. Still, surprisingly, it's been a brand that I've had little to do with until now and it's hit me with a bang! I can be a contrary type when the mood takes me and so when everyone says that something's… Continue reading Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette


Debenhams Beauty Club Awards 2014 – Beauty Club Event

I was very lucky to be invited to attend an event last night in Oxford Street which celebrated and introduced Debenhams Beauty Club Members and Telegraph¬†readers to some of the Debenhams Beauty Club Award winners. We were greeted by representatives of Viktor & Rolf who presented us (I went with my daughter Safi) with a… Continue reading Debenhams Beauty Club Awards 2014 – Beauty Club Event
