Victoria Jackson Alert!

I’ve just come back from The Clothes Show London at Excel, where who should I find lurking on the outer stands? Victoria Jackson. Unlike Benefit and Sleek, amongst others, who were doing fabulous make overs and getting really stuck in with their largely teenage visitors, the VJ peeps were doing the tired old ‘goodie-bag-you-pay-for’ routine.... Read More

Laboratoire Remede: Never Say Dry

Laboratoire Remede: Never Say Dry
I took Laboratoire Remede Wrinkle Therapy Moisture Lift Baume on holiday to Vegas a couple of months ago. Vegas is a place of extremes in more ways than one, not least the blazing sunshine outside, the incredible dryness of the atmosphere and the fierce blasts of air-con indoors. Air-con makes my skin shrivel up with... Read More

Le Metier Arrives At Liberty

AhRT have formulated three products, Refreshing, Moistursing and Slimming, in a lotion format, that you apply to your wash (at the softener stage)... Read More

I can’t work out if the rumours that Brazilian waxes are completely over because of the economy are exactly that – rumours, or whether it is really true that things are getting decidedly bushier out there as women divert their resources elsewhere. I kind of hope that having your hair down there ripped out in... Read More

Jo Malone: Vanilla & Anise

Jo Malone: Vanilla & Anise
Last night was the launch of the new fragrance from Jo Malone, Vanilla & Anise. I was kind of dreading this because I really don’t like vanilla but was in for a very pleasant surprise. The fragrance isn’t a hefty, sweet and sugary blast – it is as light as air and tempered by the... Read More
