Live Life on Impulse

I’m known among my family and friends to be a bit of a planner. I’m quite a sensible person who likes to be organised, so doing anything largely ‘spontaneous’ is usually off the cards. When it comes to style, I stick to what I know and rarely venture off course. If someone approached me with an opportunity to do something wild and crazy that day (am trying to think of what this could possibly be – so let’s go with cliff jumping, because that terrifies me), my answer would be a resounding no. I need time to think it over,…

Your Dream Day, in Phuket Thailand

Thailand seems like a LONG time ago now. I mean, I’m not sure how it’s got to September already but still – my actual summer holiday was all the way back in June! How time flies. But anyway, I wanted to save some of my Thailand coverage for a later date and not bombard you with it all at once, because as much as it was an incredible trip – there’s only so much talk of white sandy beaches and chicken satay that one person can handle.

The item every Autumn outfit should start with

I’ll be honest with you. The whole styling and fashion thing never came naturally to me. Evidence of this remains in a number of photographs (that are safely hidden away), documenting my penchant for fluffy pink skirts, sequin jumpers with rabbits on and knee high patent leather boots. Yep, all worn at the same time. And I can’t even excuse the fact I was made to wear it, because I remember being proud of my combo – and galloping around in it on a number of occasions throughout the ages of 12, 13 and dare I say it, even 14. I…

August Beauty Favourites

August has been another busy month of trying beauty products with a firm focus on injecting some much needed hydration back into my hair and skin. Although I haven’t been on my usual two week summer holiday, the UK weather still seems to have taken its toll on them anyway, so I was on a mission to restore both to their former glory before my #BloggersFestival event in early September. So, without further ado… Spectrum S Factor Tigi | link The Spectrum launch last month made waves among the blogosphere (I think I was the only person who didn’t actually…

A lesson in make-up

Despite blogging about beauty for over five years, it recently dawned on me that I don’t actually know how to apply make-up. Well perhaps the better way of explaining it is that I don’t have any technique of doing so. I just sort of splodge it on and hope for the best. I pour a dollop of foundation onto my fingers and haphazardly blend it in, while my idea of contouring is simply putting as much bronzer under my cheekbones as I can get away with before it starts looking odd. But then I know I’m not the only one. Although…
