The Beauty of London

Living relatively local to London - a 2 hour train trek if we're getting geographical - can only mean one thing. Sightseeing aside, I'm talking in the way of shopping sprees, beauty stylee. Floors upon floors inside the world's most mammoth department stores, 5 star salons and spas, stand alone pop-ups and beauty boutiques - oh yes, it has it all. And so when I get the time to hop up for a shop, the moment my feet touch down on the platform of the underground, you can bet I'll be making a move in the direction of my top makeup havens...

A Balm for Every Beauty Need

Pots, tubs and tubes of solid oil, my cleansing, makeup removing ritual wouldn't suffice without them. Let's face it, these a-little-goes-a-long-way, quick melting, thick textures make for the best pampering part of any day but they don't stop only at that step - cue the broad balmy army for every beauty need that come out top in my stash...

Charlotte Tilbury's House of Rock 'n' Kohl Beauty Bag

Last week saw London's Oxford Street Selfridges pair up with celeb makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury to host 'Charlotte Tilbury's Makeup House of Rock 'n' Kohl'. The week-long, beauty-fuelled festival featured intimate evening panels with the lady herself alongside pals Lisa Eldridge and Cara Delevingne to name but a few...

The Mask Miracles

It's not often I run out and repurchase when products produce their final pumps-worth, but for two I'll make an exception - those being a REN, dramatically difference making, mask duo. In fact, I'll even go as far as saying I'd own an SOS back-up stash for when these two do bite the dust because I just couldn't bare to be without. They've cropped up a few times here and there, but here's a loyal lowdown on the pair that come out to play at times of a complexion crisis...

Go-to Glide-On Liners

Liquid liner gal I am not; as much as I love the feminine feline flick, I find it too much of a faff to fiddle with as part of my daily makeup array, but having a little upper lash line definition doesn't go amiss all the more. Whether it's to bring some boldness to my standard bronze-y eye or to conjure up something smudged and smoky, I call on this certain liner lot to do the job - hail the gamechangers that are Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Pencils...

May Favourites

I've been promising to sing my praises on some skincare bits that I've had on trial, and my May monthly favourites features a few of those. In the mix are two spritz-on mists and a far-from harsh, fruity scented scrub which I just love, all of which have settled in my stash as main members. Of course that's not the lot, thrown in also are a couple of lip picks that have been slicked on in turns - one a solid stick form that gives my pout a pop of loud pink and two of my go-to glossy formulas in their latest shades make up this bunch. Hit the title at the top of the video below us, it will give you a new tab to view and in the box at the bottom are the links to all things mentioned. A lip shade and skincare centric post? Pretty much sums me up that.

DIY Hair Detox Treatment

A sneaky scan of a high-end hair salon menu always results in my beady eyes being drawn to the detoxifying treatments - usually consisting of a keratin feast, moisture mask and clarifying cleanse to mend, hydrate and clean deep, but with a one-off treatment totalling ten times what my monthly trim is worth, I decided I'd collect up what was in my haircare  basket and conjure up my own at-home detox for your locks and I have to say ever since, it's left me swishing my head around like I'm in some sort of advert...
