…Not what you didn’t have in the first place. Filler has had such a bad rap for many years.  It was definitely not a treatment that I was keen on trying. Whilst filler often looks fabulous on Instagram, when you see it up close it can look really fake and leave a ‘sex doll’ like […]

I have stopped reading all those beauty blogs. The whole lingo drives me mad and so many turn something that should be special, and a treat, into a commodity. Words like ’empties’ and ‘hacks’, not to mention the drive to get us to buy multiple versions of the same kind of product is simply here  […]

I have been reading a lot over the holidays and have been particularly inspired by Nora Ephron; her pieces truly resonate. An amazing writer, she wasn’t afraid to embrace everything that female maintenance entails.  The one thing that I was left with is to enjoy the moment and do what you feel is right for […]

There are certain products that you hear about all the time and hyaluronic acid and prickly pear oil are two of the most popular. I have bought them both before but to be honest I’d never bothered to research how or when to use them. My gap in my skincare is for ‘pick me ups’.  […]

I have been a self tan user for over 30 years and it is one of those products that is being constantly updated and improved. Amanda Harrington has been tanning celebrities for years and this range came out of her own need for a product that delivers.  You can book Amanda or one of her […]
