The Golden Girls

Is it just us or are we expecting too much? I mean, if we looked like any of those ladies on the red carpet we would be happy but as far as the fashion stakes go… this year’s Globes‬ were a little ‘meh’. And we’re not talking about J Lo’s! Ahem, Mr. Renner! Sure, the Golden Globe Awards are about the acting chops and yeah okay, they’re saving themselves for the

NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil Review

It’s no wonder that this little gem is loved by models and beauty insiders all over the world and can be found in just about everyone who’s anyone’s handbag or salle de bain. It’s just that good. Well, it is French après tout! At this time of year, our skin needs a little extra TLC. Central heating, biting cold winds and (my arch enemy) humidity are just some of the problems we face

The Muse ~ Faye Dunaway

Faye Dunaway has starred in some seriously stylish movies, The Thomas Crown Affair, Network and Chinatown to name a few, but its Arthur Penn’s iconic Bonnie and Clyde (arguably the most stylish film of all time) that she is most identified with. And little wonder; it simply never goes out of style. Set in the dusty mid-west during the grim 1930’s, costume designer Theadora Van Runkle’s killer ensembles (quite literally) remain current

One Last Fling…

What with this Indian summer we appear to be having of late, I find myself a little thrown by what to wear. It’s late September and instead of reaching for my Ralph Lauren-inspired equestrian ensemble; I’m having one last fling with the nineties. Maybe it’s sheer nostalgia, September does that to us all what with school starting and what not, or maybe it’s just that I’ve watched Iggy’s ‘Fancy’ a little too

Never Underestimate The Power Of Red Lipstick

For an instant pick-me-up, wear red lipstick. Preferably pillar box red lipstick but if that’s a little too intense, try something with a raspberry or vin rouge tint instead. It looks good on everyone and will never go out of style. Always keep one red lippy in your purse – you never know when you might need it!   Beyoncé     Rita Ora     Jessica Alba

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

It’s no secret that it’s simply a must to remove all traces of make-up before hitting the hay – lest you end up looking like a gremlin – and vital to this routine is the cleanser you use. Finding a cleanser that works is a lot like finding the perfect foundation. It’s a tricky business dogged with plenty of trial and error and expense! The Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot
