Which Perfume makes the Perfect Christmas Gift for your Woman?!

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells.......Jingle All the Way.....Oh What Fun it is to Ride on a One Horse open Sleigh........*continue humming* .....thinking about that song and my wish list its a good job that Santa has now upgraded his transport options as one horse would NOT be enough to pull all my presents!  Not that I am materialistic, I promise you I'm not - it just so happens that I have been a very, very good girl!  Honest! I am off for a girly weekend with my besties for lots of giggles, a little bit of wine, some Christmas shopping and

1 Week to Go! Party Time is Almost Upon Us!!

I cannot believe its nearly December. No, I mean seriously – I probably do say the same thing every year but this year has been ridiculous but amazing - I was lucky enough to be invited to a serious number of the specialist kind of weddings and their hen do's, a lovely 10 day holiday in portugal for P's 30th birthday - my 30th birthday is just around the corner (18 days to go thank you for asking!), BBQ's, lazy summer nights by the canal sipping a cider.....ahhhh......but I honestly can't tell you where Autumn has disappeared to. You know

Which Perfume makes the Perfect Christmas Present….for a MAN??!

You know what, nothing tickles my senses more than a nice smelling man. No, really – I have walked down a street before and caught a whiff of something delicious or a familiar smell and had to fight the urge to either hug him tight for a long time to inhale the fragrance, or chase after him just because I somehow, quite bizarrely, feel I should strike up a conversation as we have a connection of some sort. I understand that the above sentence sounds a bit ridiculous, honestly I do. But for me its not all about looks –

5 Ways to thicker, fuller hair – Perfect for the Party Season!

November is just around the corner (I know - HOW?!) and party season will be here before we know it - this means that now is the time to take stock and start to carry out work on those obvious areas that will be on show for most of the month to come - we all need a bit of body! A bit of ooomph in the hair. That's “root lift” to you and me : the one thing that lifts the face and makes hair look bouncy and youthful. Want to know how to get it? Well read on.....Shampoo

The Secret of Eternal Youth – in a Bottle!

Celebrating 60 years since it's launch, Youth Dew perfume still remains one of the most popular perfumes available from Estee Lauder – if you know the perfume then you will know that the scent is indeed iconic and very easily recognised. But how did it all come about? I know, I've been wondering that too! In honour it's 60th birthday I thought I would make it my business to research into it and then share my findings with you... The allure of Youth Dew is a pure dream in sheer marketing terms, let alone as a beauty icon and fragrance

Love your Lips – get the Perfect Party Pout!

Is your ultimate beauty wish to be more like Angelina Jolie, in the lip department at least? I don't know about you but I often neglect my lips – ironically the one beauty product I have most of in my collection are lip glosses – I think the reason I have so many is because I forget to use them – I am all about the eyes, although there are several areas there too that I could do with brushing up on. In any case, back to the point in hand – I have been spending a bit of time

It’s all about Matte Make Up!

The time has come - summer is ending, the leaves are falling and the nights are getting longer - whilst all that is happening on the outside it doesn't mean you can get lazy and allow things to settle on the inside.  Oh no.  Quite the opposite!!  Now is the time to make some room on your dresser - it is time to put all your shiny, sparkling beauty secrets to one side because this autumn the trend is definitely all about matte. The matte shades have taken the beauty world by storm.  If you're a fashionista then you will

Autumn Make-Up Trends 2013

It may have slipped your attention or you may have been bombarded with promo material that there has been a teeny event happening in London recently - that which is London Fashion Week (Or LFW as the cool kids call it).  In celebration of this event and because I know you're all very beautiful, busy people, I thought I would bring you the highlights of the glitz and the glamour straight from the catwalk and provide you with a bit of inside information regarding the forthcoming make up trends for Autumn / Winter 2013 as seen in a recent edition

One Direction – Our Moment Review

The wait is over. The much-anticipated fragrance from One Direction - Our Moment is now on sale and has been described as the biggest ever celebrity perfume launch. Harrods, who were first to stock it, held off doing any additional promotion as the fragrance is likely to sell out within the first few days of going on sale. The celebrity fragrance market grows bigger every year - with last year's sales worth £255 million in the UK - and this year's figures looking like they will top that. A little bit of history for you now – did you know

The A – Z of Great Skin – Part 2

Following the success of my blog from last week, and the fact that I only covered 13 letters, I thought I would spend today taking you to the end of the alphabet, after which you'll be all racing to the nearest beauty store or of course flocking to Perfume Click to revamp and purge your skincare collection......ahem......let me know if I should warn Boots that there is going to be a flock of people descending on them. So here you go - N - Z of getting super soft, shiny skin : N - Nordic beauty Having taken over our
