Naughty Little Blogger!

So, first off, I have to apologise HUGELY for neglecting the blog for so long (can you hear me grovelling as you read?).  It's been a manic time, with work commitments taking over, including taking on the role of Beauty Editor for Khaleejesque.com and co-producing an exciting new TV series all about beauty which we will film soon.  Together, these…

The best in Japanese skincare and make-up with the best of sushi, sushimi and sake! (Well, maybe not the sake - we are working, after all!)  My…

Confession Time!

So, a flurry of tweets on Twitter today have brought me to this:What "must-haves" have you never bought or used?  You know the ones I mean?  The ones that always win the beauty awards, the one that every beauty sage will say you cannot live without, the ones that you wouldn't dare own up to not having tried for fear…

Elemis Absolute Eye Serum

If you've read previous posts, you'll know that eye creams and eye serums have long held me in a state of total confusion and, dare I say it, a little scared.  Scared, that is, of adverse skin reactions that have left me, in the past, with almost debilitating allergic reactions that have me alternatively running for homeopathic remedies and hiding…

Holiday Beauty

We've all read the multitude of magazine articles about the capsule make-up bag for sunny holidays, how less is more and how three key products can 'make' your holiday face...blah blah blah.  Heck, I've even written my fair share of these magazine and website articles.Minamalist or the full Monty?So how does it translate into reality?  Well, I'm truly ashamed to…

Going Nude!

Let's face it, even on the days when we say we're not wearing any make-up, we won't really set foot outside the house without some tinted moisturiser, or a quick slick of mascara just to open up the eyes.  And yes, lipgloss or a shiny lipbalm DOES count as make-up!!!So today's challenge to myself was absolutely no make-up AT ALL!…
