Cheryl’s new blonde do – how she did it

We've been doing a bit of digging, and we've found out how Cheryl Cole achieved her new blonde do, that we blogged about earlier, so, this is an extra wee post should you want to know the finer details of Ms Cole's hairdo! Firstly, it's not blonde, okay? It's ‘Smokey Quartz’. The good news is you can achieve it at home with  L’Oréal Paris Casting Crème Gloss 8304. Cheryl celebrates her birthday tomorrow (she's 28), and who doesn't like a new … [Read more...]

Beauty Bargain of the Week – GOSH!

We can all spend a fortune on beauty products, but we don’t need to. Every week, I’m going to bring you my ‘Beauty Bargain of the Week‘  – a product I’ve used, and would recommend, and that, on most occasions, costs less than a fiver! What’s not to like! Okay this week's Beauty Bargain comes in at just over a fiver, but it's worth it. I love liquid eyeliner, but the problem with it is it's lasting-power. The 'crack factor' I like to call … [Read more...]

Cheryl’s gone blonde!

It's fair to say I'm not Cheryl Cole's biggest fan. But even I felt sorry for the rough time she had in the US. And being a serial-hair colour changer, I can appreciate the need for a new look at stressful times! And I'm quite glad she's ditched the uber long, over-teased locks for a much sleeker, shorter, blonde bob, as reported in the  Daily Mail today, amongst other press. If you fancy a change, there are loads of fabulous hair salons here on … [Read more...]

Made-up to get married…

So, Kate Moss gets married tomorrow. I can’t wait to see what she’s going to be wearing, can you? Rumoured designers names that have been banded about include her old friend, the now disgraced John Galliano, Stella McCartney or perhaps even vintage Ossie Clark. But we’ll all have to wait until US Vogue comes out to see the dress - how rubbish is that?! No OK! or Hello mag deal for this fashionista bride. I've also been wondering what her makeup … [Read more...]

Scent of Summer…

It really is officially summer, not that we've had much here in Scotland right enough! But just because it doesn't feel like summer, doesn't mean you can't smell like summer! There are dozens of 'summer' fragrances on the market .What's your favourite? I love all things Chanel, but I've recently been wearing this gorgeous trio of perfumes from French beauty brand, Caudalie. Fleur de Vigne, Zeste de Vigne and Thé des Vignes are designed to be … [Read more...]

Embrace your curls like Beyonce!

Wow! How amazing was Beyonce at Glastonbury last night? And how utterly fabulous was her massive mop of curls?! All of my life I have fought my naturally curly hair. With straightening products, irons, an actual iron back in the day, plaits overnight to take the curl out - you name it, I've tried it. But in the last few years, I've  embraced the curls and the waves, just like Beyonce. Will you?! For the last month I have been trying out Trevor … [Read more...]

Festival Hair needs fixed!

Glastonbury opens its gates today to mark the start of the festival season proper - with Scotland's biggest festival, T in the Park, coming up in July. Now, if you've ever been at a festival you'll know that showering or washing, never mind washing your hair is pretty much out of the questions. So, wipes are a musthave item, and so is a dry shampoo. There are loads of dry shampoos on the market these days - they're brilliant for adding volume to … [Read more...]
