Create your New Years Eve Look with Charlotte Tilbury!

It’s New Years Eve, the one and only night (apart from your birthday) when glitz, glamour and sparkles are compulsory! With that in mind, and because I felt that I was starting to fall into a bit of a makeup rut, I took a lunchtime stroll around Covent garden and accidently found myself browsing in the newly opened Charlotte Tilbury Boudoir! Boudoir you say? Yes, a whole shop full of

Ciaté The Colour Cosmetics Collection

I love makeup! There I have said it. Some people may say that I wear too much but that’s their opinion! I love makeup because of the way it makes me feel, how it can help transform a look and create different looks. For me, in a way, it’s a confidence thing, yes, but believe me there are days when I don’t wear makeup and that’s fine too. What I’m

The Ship Tavern Holborn

‘Tis the season to be jolly and the perfect time to enjoy a cosy dinner or drink with loved ones and friends.

However, that would be entirely unfair and as this is the time

Take your pick Christmas Baubles

Have you got your tree up yet? If not, then, why, what are you waiting for? I love Christmas! Maybe not the writing Christmas cards part but everything, starting with heading over to our local garden centre to choose our perfect tree. We always tend to get a real Christmas tree, not because we are fake Christmas tree snobs but more so because of the lack of space we have

Sonos the wireless speaker system that is the indulgent gift that eveyone needs for Christmas!

Keeping with the all encompassing Christmas theme, (how could I not it is everywhere I go? I’m even wearing my reindeer antlers as I type), today’s post is all about that indulgent gift. Yes, it’s the kind of the gift that requires a bit of money to be spent. Still, come to think of it, it’s the ultimate investment piece that can be built upon and if the recipient is

Get Claudia Winkleman’s look with her first beauty range in collaboration with M&S

Over the last few weeks, Claudia Winkleman’s infamous hair and smokey Kohl-eyes have firmly taken centre stage on the set of Strictly Come Dancing! Whilst the rest of the contestants did the waltz, tango, rumba, and the nation becomes obsessed with Peter Andres’s hip movements, what do I do? Add a ballroom dancing class to my Christmas list? No, instead, I sit and ponder how Claudia gets her hair to
