Erm…Separated At Birth? Muji Face Massager and Sarah Chapman The Facialift

Erm...Separated At Birth? Muji Face Massager and Sarah Chapman The Facialift

The Sarah Chapman The Facialift is £24 (cough) and the Muji Face Massager is £6.95. Maybe it’s just me but... Read More

The Olfactory Geek: Andy Tauer
Right, I think I just met one of the very, very few fragrancers who doesn’t complicate everything with a massive ego.

Bourjois 1 Seconde Gris Cashmere

Bourjois 1 Seconde Gris Cashmere
Love this colour – it’s just completely perfect for the coffee/cream look coming up for autumn. It’s out 1st September in Superdrug for £5.49, No.30. It’s a one coat formula – but I’m on a nail polish ban at the moment to try and get my nails in some kind of condition to start wearing... Read More
