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.

Berry Berry nice ; I’m head over Autumn leaves in love with BERRY blush
Rating ; Berry Berry nice ; So following on from my berry nice lipstick post yesterday from the feedback I’m sensing we’re liking the juicy-theme which is great! So if you’re going all-in for plum like me I’d recommend teaming your berry lips WITH a berry blush ; but going a little lighter on the rest.
Inside scoop ; No need to give the apple to the teacher, wear this seasons blushing berry deep red hues on the apples of your cheeks as well, for the perfect ‘just-in-from-the-cold cheek’ blush. As I move into my Autumn / Winter wardrobe (actually did I ever STOP wearing boots – nope!) I reckon berry blush looks amazing with black, teal or any of the latest must wear Fall shades.
Berry Berry nice ; I’m head over Autumn leaves in love with BERRY lips
Rating ; Berry Berry nice ; I’m head over Autumn Leaves in Love with almost ALL the new Berry lipstick shades popping up this season. So today I’m pretty much recommending BERRY in particular and none exactly specifically!
Inside scoop ; You can’t say Plum Crumble(mmm) without turning a magazine to find the latest greatest Berry shade in fact I’ve spent a happy hour tonight just scrolling through the 100’s of reviews / swatches and deeply richly seriously indulgent plum, berry, red, nearly red, almost plum shades around this season.
It’s 5 T time : that stands for TREAT TRY TUMMY TEA TODAY!
Rating ; Tuesday = T-Time that stands for T for Treat Try tummy Tea; ok not STRICTLY a beauty product BUT I always feel if you look after the inside then the outside looks a bit better and certainly you FEEL better. So Tuesday’s Top TREAT is TEA. Herbal of course, high quality bien sur, beautifully designed but of course…
Inside scoop ; They say beauty is skin deep I say dig deeper TEA could just be the cure for all Tuesday ills and more. And it doesn’t come more tasty tempting and tea-like than the quirky range from T2. Discovered – well ok lured into – their store in Oxford Street I find myself T-eed up and ready to rave about T2.
Goldfinger ; oh gold skincare cheeky but effective tick from me!
Rating ; More on today’s Gold-fingers theme. At FIRST I thought REALLY…REALLY 24k gold infused skincare uhhuh whatever possibly a little gimmicky…erm but then I thought need now want gold on my skin…so I toyed with it.
Inside scoop ; All that glitters IS gold alot of me didn’t especially want to love this especially as I wondered why I kept being drawn to it’s sparkly little gold bits but….
Like my Rose Gold steal bracelet earlier this one is also a bit of a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow…
