Every beauty product I use in the morning from shower gel to hairspray and everything in between

posted on: Monday, 25 March 2019

If I had a dime for every time someone asked me what I use for my skincare, haircare or shower musts, I'd have enough money to buy a McDonalds Value Meal daily (Ha. I hate it when people say they'd be millionaires when using that phrase. Liars, they are.) So, I thought I'd get it all down on paper for you.... my beauty regime. Anywho, let's make this a regular feature shall we? I'll now be doing a monthly breakdown of latest and greatest and this is the first. These will be the items that have impressed me enough to make their way into my daily regime. You see, I get sent so many amazing things to try and I do try them all. But honestly, I have no idea how most beauty editors do their job as it takes me at least a month to decide if I even want to tell you guys about anything. So, please know it's all truly being trialled again and again before I dream of telling you to invest your hard earned cash in anything. There's too much bullshit out there at the moment, so you certainly don't need anymore from me. 

Style Update: Coordinates for days...

posted on: Friday, 22 March 2019

I may be 39, but I truly still feel as if I'm 19 these days. The only sign, that I can see, that I'm getting  any older can be found in the toning down of colour in my wardrobe. No other signs of adulthood found anywhere here, just the introduction of more neutral colours, that don't shout "look at me" constantly as I walk through the streets of London. I mean, as if being over six feet tall wasn't enough of an attention grabber, right? Yet, I'm known for embracing every colour of the rainbow and have done for as long as I can remember. Maybe that's why these moments seem the most shocking, the most risk-taking and the most memorable. These are the style moments when I'm trying classic and demure on for size, but am still able to express myself without feeling stuffy or too "old lady-ish." I guess that's what I'm always struggle with - trying to dress my age while still feeling cool.

Style Update: The Midi Black Dress

posted on: Wednesday, 20 March 2019

The hunt for the perfect black dress continues, because, frankly speaking, it's never enough to just have one little black dress hanging in the closet. One needs backups. Little black dresses need friends. So, I am always on the look out for a new addition and this one was a no brainer. When I first spotted it, it was the versatility of the shoulders that grabbed me. You can wear it off the shoulder or full coverage (if you simply can't live without a bra giving you that extra over the shoulder support). It's also a midi style (might even be maxi on some) and has the most flattering cinch in for every hourglass figure out there. It's also a high street dress, so it's something we can buy without feeling bad about on our credit card bill the next day.

Visiting Mare Street Market

posted on: Monday, 18 March 2019

London's latest and greatest comes in the form of a marketplace in the east end of the city. When I first heard of Mare Street Market, I was told it was worth the trip east for the pizza alone. So, I went, booted, suited and ready for a big slice of cheese and tomato cooked goodness. That's all I was expecting, nothing more. When I arrived, I wasn't quite prepared for what was awaiting me.
