Three Mascara Empties I’ve Loved

Three Mascara Empties I’ve Loved

Did you know you're meant to chuck out your mascara three months after opening it? Before you all rush off to go through your mascara stash, let me tell you why.  Eye infections are all too common as a result of using too-old mascara - the constant putting in / pulling out of the mascara wand into the tube can…

Futureproofing Fitness Goals #corevolution

Every so often I step back from my fitness and nutritional regime to think about my motivation for training so hard and watching what I eat. Ever since I was a young girl, I've made being active in general, and working out at the gym in particular, a part of my daily life, but why? Is it just to look good…
Hair Removal 101

Hair Removal 101

Summer is fast approaching and with that comes that whole mundane thing most of us women have to go through. The dreaded ritual of hair removal. Skirts, vest tops, swimming costumes, bikinis... we want to be able to wear them all, which means our legs, underarms, and everywhere else for that matter need some attention. Especially since it's the last…

How To: Wear The Glossy Nude

How To: Wear The Glossy Nude

It's so easy to get stuck in a makeup rut. I've lost count of the number of times friends have told me that they're still wearing the same makeup look that they wore in their teens (one even told me she still has the same bottle of foundation she bought fifteen years ago - really!). Even though I'm constantly trying…
Wednesday Wishlist

Wednesday Wishlist

You guys know me... the inherent shopaholic! With more shoes than sense, those who know me in real life know I am that cliche, living and breathing. So, in an attempt to curb my spending, I thought I'd do it vicariously in a weekly blog post; all the bits that have caught my eye, that I'm currently lusting over but…

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipsticks

Before we even talk about the YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Lipsticks, the shades, the formulas, let's just take a minute or three to appreciate the aesthetic... I mean, are these not the most beautiful lipsticks you could hope to have on your dressing table. No need to decorate with ornate Lalique decorations, just give me a lots of these to adorn my bedroom and…

Budget Buy: Avon Big & Multiplied Mascara

I have a certain affinity to Avon which goes back a long way (a story I'll go into another time in another blog post), so I'm always keen to hear about new launches and new developments, but I feel I don't talk about them enough. So today I want to tell you about this new mascara from Avon. Launching on 5th…
Essie Spring Collection… & a Rankin Photoshoot!

Essie Spring Collection… & a Rankin Photoshoot!

For a girl who sticks mostly to black, white and nude when it comes to clothing, a bright nail colour is often the easiest way for me to drop in an intense hit of the latest colours hot from the catwalk. I love Essie nail colours for their fail-proof formula and iconic shade selection; the anticipation of a new season collection is…
