A Blow Dry at Urban Retreat, Harrods

When I attended the Harrods' Christmas press preview in July, I was lucky enough to meet hair stylist to the stars and Creative Director of Urban Retreat, Harrods, Andrew Barton. Charming Andrew kindly invited me into the salon during our chat, promising me a beautiful blow dry and it certainly did not disappoint!.

Video: Easy Everyday Summer Make Up Tutorial

It's summer (or at least the closest thing we'll get to a summer here in the UK), so I wanted to share some of my top tips on how to achieve the perfect dewy daytime make up look for these 'warmer months'.

Getting Ready For Date Night With Nair

I'd like to share a bit of advice to all my readers who haven't yet had kids. Never - and I repeat NEVER - take date nights for granted. Because as soon as bambinos are on the scene - and my fellow mamas will back me up here - date nights become rarer than rocking horse poop!

Anti-Ageing Beauty With Perricone MD

When it comes to anti-ageing skincare routines, I'm a little bit (OK a lot...) late to the party! At 34, I've only just started using anti-ageing products, which according to the experts is about 14 years too late! My bad!

My NIVEA Q10 Plus Skincare Routine

I know the advice is to use anti-wrinkle cream from the end of your 20's but I'm a bit of a later starter and have only started recently, at the grand old (not really old) age of 34.

Life’s Little Luxuries

Work hard, play hard I say. And by play hard, as a mum of two, I mean mostly, retail therapy. Although not shopping with kids, now that's anything but therapeutic.

Natural Beauty Products That Work

I'm committed to using the most natural beauty products I can. I have sensitive skin and definitely notice a positive difference when I use 'free-from' and organic products on my face and body.

Attending a Pinterest UK Event with Celebrity Hair Stylist George Northwood

PinterestLondon is always a whirlwind for me, and last Wednesday was no exception. Taking my Mum along for a rare night away and quite the party (more of that soon), I had some exciting meetings by day (as always, I'll reveal more when I can)- as we made our way through chic coffee shops in Farringdon to the place I call home in the city, Charlotte Street Hotel, a bustling yet relaxing hub where meetings can turn to dinner easily, and being so close to Soho and the production company I have a TV series in development with, makes it the ideal place for my blogging and TV career to meet.

Boots No 7 Christmas Look

Those that follow this blog know my great, sometimes obsessive LOVE of make up. I refer to it as my armour, it gives me confidence and helps to hide dark circles from the many sleepless nights I suffer sadly (thanks kids)-making me feel awake on the outside if not in.
