Technology Marketing Director by day, ex-beauty industry insider, creator of my own line of skincare & make-up, kept my passion for all things make-up, skincare, fragrance, hair are, body care. In fact anything which can help us all look or feel better and make the best of ourselves.
Lots to share, I've made products, I know the good from the bad, I'm also an ex journalist so I hope my little blog might help others find their way through the beauty jungle, not waste too much money & discover some great new products.
Thanks for reading & engaging with me.
Looks good : Feels good : Manic Monday blues cured with this Feathery find…buy local think local
Rating ; Its Monday, yes Manic Monday and yes Monday blues for many at times, so here’s a piece to cheer you up, no not a beauty product or a handbag or a poncho (yes STILL loving my poncho) but eye-candy for sure. Well maybe wall candy…to be precise
Inside scoop ; I like to buy local and source local where I can, sure I buy lots online too and elsewhere, but if I can get something I love and adore locally then I will and this feathery fantastic find definitely counts.
Looks good : Does good thats my kind of Saturday shopping check out this beautiful well named ‘Fortitude’ bracelet in aid of Breast Cancer awareness.
Rating ; I love Rose Gold, I love jewellery, I love bracelets, I love sparkly things and I love good causes ; so what’s not to love about a BRACELET that combines ALL of that into one dinky on trend, stylish little number!
Inside scoop ; If you love what I love, then why not do something special this weekend and get yourself – your mum – your friend one of these gorgeous new Stella & Dot bracelets. I’m told / assured 100% of the sale price net profits go to Breast Cancer awareness.
Furr-mazing check out this seasonal transition wardrobe essential
Rating; Furr-mazing well Faux fur to be precise, coupled with a little Mexican wave…if you’ve not yet discovered Poncho Power, read on for Autumn’s perfect warm to cold to cover-up essential.
Inside scoop; Cold – hot – warm – not – rain – sun – cloud and everything in between Fall is soooo fickle. And so is my wardrobe; too soon for Winter boots? Too sunny for black tights, too warm for winter coats, too cool for thin macs aghhhhhhh…whether it’s work wear, home wear, or out-wear I find Autumn Awful ; at times. Well until I went all Mexican…
Rating ; I take it all back I’m just not ready for BERRY yet in fact I’ll confess I’m “seasonally confused”. I’m not quite ready to switch to full knitwear, I’m still in some t-shirts but I have put my heating on twice now (shh don’t tell). So what to wear ; on your lips.
Inside scoop ; If you’re suffering from Seasonal Lip Anxiety SLA : ok yes you got me I DID just make that up…can I recommend middle of the road. In colour terms. Don’t go full on Berry Bold : do park the pink & bin the beige : settle for ‘neutral’…DON’T skimp on the texture…
Terrific Tuesday : a tale of East Meets West and Skin Science meets Natural goodness
Rating ; Yin-Yang tastic I’ve discovered an incredible new brand that somehow fuses the best of both worlds with Asian inspired natural goodness : together with cutting edge skin science. All developed by someone who knows. Ok down side? None I see yet!
Inside scoop; Su-Man is a celebrity facialist inspired brand and so much more. I’ve been trialing some of their range recently and am loving their Asian-Fusion mix of skincare that works : plus natural ingredients. I call it East meets West, you might just say it works…oh and its won a few awards too!
Banish bad hair days and misty manky Monday blues with this Monday hair-saviour!
Rating ; Does your hair have the Monday blues? Or is it just manky messy and miserable like mine? Maybe not, but I confess I was NOTblessed with camera ready hair. Actually it’s fair to say I was not really overly blessed in the hair department at all, so I rate this one HAIR-RAISINGLY fab.
Inside scoop; Bumble & Bumble, I guess you’ve heard of them no doubt? But, tried this hidden in their range product, maybe not? Whether your hair hates the weather : or the weather hates your hair ; this might be your go-to lucky locks fixer this Autumn.
If you’ve had a packed weekend then here’s a Sunday tip you need that is out of this world ; well to the moon to be precise…
Rating ; Slumber, sleepy, sound, sensory, snoozing, simply, special SLEEP…that’s what this gorgeous range promises AND delivers. Unassumingly signed off ‘sleep beautifully’ on all their products you will and they can help.
Inside scoop ; It is said a good night’s sleep is the cure for all ills and the perfect set up for the week, well it doesn’t get ‘good-er’ than this delightfully British Range of sleep-inducing, sleep-encouraging, sleep-making products.

Rating ; Saturday night out – in – or anywhere make a STATEMENT with these stunning shimmering oh so dangly must-buy NEW A/W season earrings from Shiver & Duke. SADLY they come in a stunning array of colours meaning it’s very likely ONE pair will NOT be enough.

Flawless Friday it’s as easy as 1-2-G for GLOW gorgeous skin
Rating ; G stands for GLOW : glow getter, look BETTER. Friday’s top pre-weekend tip is a light dusting of my favourite super-fine ‘finishing powder’ from those clever folks atbareminerals.
Inside scoop ; Finishing powder might sound like one of those REALLY, come on REALLY do I need it type products. Well I guess it depends….shiny slippy off make-up your thing? Nasty craggy collecty-in-the-creases foundation your go-to look. Ah ok NO, then YUP, it’s handy stuff and pretty much the staple insider beauty trick for any MUA worth her brushes!
