Estee Lauder Violet Underground

Estee Lauder Violet Underground
A sharp eyed reader pointed out the Estee Lauder Violet Underground collection, launching later in the year. It’s full of smoulder, lush glossiness and general all-round glamour. I cannot wait to get my tips dipped in that deep berry polish, Black Iris.  We can expect some new nail polish shades as well, ten new colours... Read More

Japonesque Safari Brush Set

Japonesque Safari Brush Set
Loving these Safari brushes from Japonesque, fairly newly released at Boots. This trio costs £28 and contains a plush powder-brush, shadow brush and a crease brush. Since I’ve got a little bit more into quality brushes, I’m rather excited by these, but thinking I might be a bit reluctant to douse them in eyeshadow and... Read More

Bex London

Bex London
I love living in London; originally I came from Scotland (although I am English) and even mum says that from the day I could walk, I wanted to be on a pavement, not a country lane! So I came to London as soon as I possibly could at age seventeen, got a job, found a... Read More

TanGro
Okay, so this isn’t the prettiest thing in the world, but it’s got to be one of the most useful. The TanGro, £34.26, is made from breathable 95% cotton and the concept is totally simple – it stops you getting self-tan on your sheets, your sofa or your chairs. One of the things that puts... Read More

Swarovski Elements Oriental Ear-Rings

Swarovski Elements Oriental Ear-Rings
I’m so lazy about changing my ear-rings and also super-fussy, too…usually I just wear a pair of plain gold hoops and really have to be in an ear-ring mood to be bothered to change them. Like many people, I can only usually tolerate gold without getting an allergic reaction, but have found that I can... Read More
