Breast Cancer Awareness Month Starts On Saturday

I’m really lucky that I haven’t lost anyone in my family to breast cancer. But over the years, I’ve watched friends, close and not so, come into contact with the disease.

The addition of the blue crystal highlights that although it is women predominantly, it is not solely a women’s disease,... Read More

Models Own Beetlejuice Collection

Models Own Beetlejuice Collection
Oh hello, new nail trend! Absolutely love this forthcoming collection from Models Own and dying to get my hands on some. They’re kind of oil-slicky colours; quite complicated shades made by mixing four pearlescent colours into one to give a duo chrome finish. Quite exciting, really, but not available til November, but definitely something to... Read More
