Pretty Honest by Sali Hughes launches in paperback today!

When Sali Hughes Pretty Honest book (hardback version) launched in Sept 2014, the beauty world went crazy for it. Anyone who was remotely interested in beauty products or liked buying/wearing beauty products had to get their hands on it. I, not wanting to conform to the pressures of society, figured I’ll add it to my Christmas list. I mean what am I really going to learn from this book that

Kiss Chase and Between The Sheets New Charlotte Tilbury Lipsticks

A lipstick for a lipstick lover is like a magic wand. It can lift your mood, change a look, update an outfit and generally make you feel confident and happy. (Well those are my thoughts anyway.) As a little girl I would see my mum, aunts or other women applying lipstick and be envious of how glamorous they looked. I couldn’t wait until I was adult enough to buy my

Yes, having a facial is great for the skin but it’s not something that everyone can afford once or twice a month. Therefore, as an affordable way to give your skin that much needed TLC or boost, I suggest a good exfoliant followed by an equally good face

Iswari Buddha’s Awakening The Raw Superfood Breakfast Range.

Okay, so here’s the dilemma…I and Mr J have spent all of January being ‘healthy’ and when I say healthy, I mean we really went for it.

My Little Home Box

The joys of working from home means you are actually in when the delivery or post person knocks at your door. Now you can imagine my surprise when, on a very windy Monday morning earlier this week, my subscription of My Little Box turned up super early in the month! Yay!

Let your Glo & Ray do the talking this Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s Day is all about the colour red and maybe a classic smokey eye. Now what happens if you’re not that confident in wearing a bright red lipstick and feel more comfortable with a nude lip? What happens when no matter how many YouTube videos you’ve watched, you just can’t master that simple smokey eye look without looking like you’ve had a few rounds in the boxing ring? Well then
