I have been trying to find a signature perfume for ages. I adore those perfumes that last, but a lot of the time they are too overpowering, or just become  too common. Over the years I have tried so many and typically I have a few on the go, but never really committing to one.  […]

When you are on holiday a tan looks fantastic, but the minute you come back and look in the mirror (the light is harsher) and you see the downside of your hours of tanning.  Despite having used nothing but factor 90 my skin looks flaky, dry and thinner, not to mention the extra lines around […]

Last Summer my hair resembled an extra from the programme Benidorm – all frazzled and brittle.  This year I have taken precautions!  I had a keratin treatment done before I left to take the worst of the frizz away and loaded up on proper products to protect my hair. In the maze of brands, I […]

Over the years I have tried so many masks promising to lift, and give you that instant glow, however, most of the time regardless of how much you spend, they really don’t make much of a difference and are a total waste of money and time.  This year I have made it my aim to track down masks […]

I have given up on those magazine ‘Best Beauty Products Lists’.  They are mostly sponsored and I have never been impressed by anything I have bought based on their recommendation. Now, I get my beauty tips from friends.  There is no agenda and I know that unless they love it they wont recommend it. Hannah is ruthless, […]

I am too old to go out without any make up.  It is not vanity, I used to, but now in my mid-forties it is too scary a thought. At the same time I hate heavy make-up.  I leave my house at 7.30 every morning on the school run so I don’t have time to mess around. I […]
