One Sold Every Minute…

Back in May we blogged about the waiting list for the Model Co Fibre Lash Brush on False Lashes as endorsed by Danni Minogue.

Falsify those Lashes!

If you are looking for a new mascara this weekend, then head straight  to the 17 counter at Boots, and pick up the new 17 Falsifeye False Lash Effect Mascara.

Fake It!

After years of fake tanning- and I mean years - I sort of gave up in my mid 30s and began to 'embrace the skin I'm in'.

Some of them seemed to make no difference at all, but then I was introduced to … [Read more...]

Sleepy Head Harper Seven…

Well, they were never going to name her Jane were they?! So, Posh and Becks have their little girl, and she's called Harper Seven. Apparently Harper is quite a common name in the USA. No doubt it will take off here soon as well... Anyway, the Beckhams have a new baby, and will most likely have been given every single baby beauty range known to man for the little one's bathtime, amongst all sorts of other gifts. They might even be a fan of this … [Read more...]

Autumnal hues to beat summer blues…

I don't know about you, but this 'summer' we've been having has made me feel very autumnal! And tomorrow I'm off to a Christmas press show in London!

It's called The New Black, and is inspired by a Clinique cult classic - Black Honey. Back in 1971, the … [Read more...]
