Have you been Huda’d?! Huda Beauty at Harvey Nichols

I wrote on here a few weeks ago about the new Huda Beauty counter launch at Harvey Nichols in Edinburgh. I popped along on the launch morning, thanks to Huda and Harvey Nichols, and enjoyed a good play around with the products, a lovely breakfast, and I was shade matched for a base. I'm not the right demographic for the brand - I'm never going to go for the full Huda look, but I can appreciate the products on their individual merit, and as far … [Read more...]

Rose Beauty

The other week I wrote about the new Jo Loves Rose Petal fragrance, and it got me thinking about how much I love rose. So I thought I'd have a little call-put for some other rose scented/coloured/themed/inspired beauty products, and share what I found. Apparently, Holly Willoughby likes the Korres Wild Rose Advanced Brightening Bi-Phase Booster Serum (£46, lookfantastic.com) - a powerful serum which helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots, … [Read more...]

MAC Viva Glam 25 and Winnie Harlow

I was an America's Next Top Model ADDICT, and Tyra Banks is a goddess, so I was a little less than impressed when ANTM alumini Winnie Harlow - who Tyra found on the internet and invited on to the show - discredited it. Eh, not fierce, Winnie, not fierce! Winnie has certainly made it big since her time on the show in 2014, and whilst I am sure she's worked hard, come on - got to give Tyra a little bit of credit. Anyway, here she is in her … [Read more...]

Get the latest ‘Glass Hair’ trend

So, here's the latest Hollywood hair trend - Glass Hair. Yep, Kim Kardashian has it. So does Jourdan Dunn. So what the heck is it? Er, a shiny bob, I think. It's definitely shiny. Very shiny. And mostly bobbed. It's probably not that attainable for many of us. Look at my latest Instagram image - bottom of the post - that's about as near to 'glass hair' as my over-processed barnet gets, but back in the day I did once have a gloriously shiny bue … [Read more...]

Happy Birthday Madonna, 60 today!! If there is one thing I associate with Madonna more than anything, it's red lipstick. She was my red lip inspiration.
