BENEFIT BROW EVENING


photo (1)

photo (1)Today I spent my early evening at a presentation hosted by Benefit at the Rotunda’s penthouse, the focus of which was all things brow; my dream.

Having being cursed blessed since childhood with a single inch-thick eyebrow that started on one side of my head, finishing on the other, I have only in recent years come to appreciate the fullness and potential of my own brows.

I’m always really…

WAREHOUSE AW14


WAREHOUSE_AW14_SHOT_06_138

For those of you who have been pregnant, it’s likely that you’ll feel my pain when I have a little whinge about the fact that as we approach autumn, and the fun of picking out new winter clothes hits; one is landed with a rather large baby bump to clothe. However, rather than shut myself away in a smock dress like the style deprived Miss Haversham of the B5 area, I have decided to embrace all the…

MADELEINE SHAW: HEALTHY FOOD GENIUS LADY

Madeleine Shaw

If you aren’t already familiar with Madeleine Shaw, I would really recommend acquainting yourself.

I discovered her a couple of years ago during a period of time when I’d become very interested in sugar free living and healthy lifestyle ideas. I’ve since fallen off that wagon but very much intend to clamber back on after my baby is born later this year.

Madeleine has an incredibly generous websi…

I went to Bullring’s latest Blogger Event last night, and a result I have whole new beauty shopping list. Well, a handful of key things that I-need-in-my life, to be more specific. It was of course lovely to see friends and familiar faces too.

Trotting around the room whilst stuffing my little face with treats from wagamama, Nando’s, Auntie Anne’s and Millie’s Cookies; I happened upon the RMK…

Funtime Chats with Jamie Laing

Today at work, I met Jamie Laing to talk sweets, style and R&B classics. (Tough day at the office, I know).

I learned that his candy of choice is Candy Kittens Apple and Elderflower Gummy sweets, his pet hate is over dressing, and his style icon is James Dean; no surprise really as he admits his personal style is all about “jeans and T-shirts”.

You can listen to the interview here if you like…

Jeremy Scott, Moschino

Ok, ok, I’m late to the party on this one but throw me a bone, I’m in Birmingham not Milan (more’s the pity).

I enjoy the playful LOLz  littered throughout this collection; Chanel references are rife and combined with consumerist iconography it’s a bit like “Is this pissing you off? Great, that’s what we were going for.” I didn’t love all of it (I don’t think you can unless you’re a bubblegum…

COCOA TEA


COCOA TEA

Recently I’ve been looking for something to help take the edge of the 3.30 craving for a sweet snack. I initially centred the search on some sort of fruit tea thinking that the warm water would fill me up and the fruit might help with the need for sweetness; I have the sweetest tooth ever.

It works to a point but when you want chocolate, it’s just, well it’s not chocolate is it. I dreamed of a…
