MAC Strength Lipsticks - Party Parrot, Strong Woman and Pink Pigeon.

Sunday, February 24, 2013

When the MAC Strength collection launched in the UK, a few weeks ago, I couldn't ring MAC mail order fast enough to place my order.

I knew exactly what I wanted and bought three out of the five available lipsticks and a lip liner.


The Bar of Areo - Revisited.

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Chocolate and make up - two of my favourite things. No make up in this post, but I am going to be talking chocolate! Last last year, confectionery favourite Aero launched a three day 'Bubble Bar' at the Truman Brewary in Brick Lane.

The masses braved the chilly weather to sample yummy Aero hot chocolate and play with peppermint scented bubbles. Stiff upper lips were left at the door as the public frolicked about and indulged in spontaneous fun. Entry was free and visitors had they chance to win prizes ranging from free chocolate (naturally), to spa weekends.

Check out the short video below to view the Bubble Bar in action.




Happy Days - Rihanna to Collaborate with M.A.C

Thursday, February 21, 2013

So the make-up Gods have finally got their act together, answered my prayers and bought M.A.C cosmetics and Rihanna together!

As WWD reported early yesterday morning, Rihanna will collaborate with M.A.C and release four colour collections throughout the year. The first product we’ll see is MAC RiRi Woo - a lipstick inspired by the bestseller, Ruby Woo lipstick. This will launch to coincide with her concerts taking place in New York on  May 4-5 and you'll be able to buy it online and at the concerts - M.A.C will be setting up a pop-up shop to sell it from.

Pigmentation has been a skin woe for me, for as long as I can remember. I suffer from the same hyperpigmentation marks which my Mum has and my skin scars easily if I start tampering with any pesky spots which occasionally pop up.



Winter Essentials #2

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

This freezing weather is showing no signs of diminishing anytime soon, but that's fine as I'm winning the war against any possible damage that could be made to my skin as a result of the constant change of temperature it's being exposed to.

Here are more of the products I've been relying on to get me through the cold snap.



YSL Faux Cils Swarovski Love Edition!

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

I'm not really one for whacking out a load of Valentines posts - they become a bit tiresome to read and end up putting me off all pink and red lip products for the next six months.  I did however, think this was worthy of a quick mention.

Throughout February, YSL are offering a bespoke service when their best selling mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils (£23.50) is purchased. Visit selected YSL counters, including Harrods and Selfridges and your tube will be adorned with a Swarovski crystal heart before your very eyes.

Having purchased this mascara in the past, I can vouch that it does indeed leave your lashes looking amazing - just be careful that your tube doesn't dry out within two months, like mine did.  



Totally unnecessary but cute nevertheless. Start dropping those last min hints now.





Review: Sofitel Essaouira Golf & Spa , Morocco (Photo Heavy)

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

The follow up to my initial post, sharing my visit to Morocco, courtesy of Sofitel has been a long time coming (the understatement of 2013 so far), and the current chilly weather has certainly reminded me where I'd rather be at the moment! You can read my original post for a quick recap of the trip so far.

So after being suitably impressed by the luxury of the Sofitel hotel in Marrakesh, I didn't think I could be wowed any further, but how wrong was I? As we began our two hour journey to Essaouira, I was taken in by the sights - I even spotted a windstorm in the desert. It was so surreal. Just a few hours earlier I'd landed back in London from a girly holiday in Turkey, so to say at this point, I was exhausted was an understatement.
