The latest in beauty, from makeup to skincare, spas and facials by Lauren Silvester
A makeup artist once suggested I mix two foundations together. After testing a few brands there was one stand out winner, so my shades are no longer one or the other but a combination meaning darker for when I’m tanned and lighter when…
If you’re a fan of holistic nutrition for your skin then you’ll love the new Superfood range from Elemis.
Over the course of my blogging career I’ve been sent messages from followers concerning various surgeries and procedures.
Male gift giving is something I’ve never particularly struggled with. Perhaps it’s having a brother or from my time spent working at GQ either way I know what the men in my life want – especially on Valentine’s Day.
It’s true what they say; well-behaved girls rarely make history. Some of the best times of my life have happened when my friends and I are being, well, a little bit naughty!
I’m often asked to review new launches or try out products before they’re launched on the market. I only truly love a small proportion of them meaning that there are many products I don’t rate enough to put on the blog.
On Sunday 14th May, 36 close friends and family gathered at my husband’s parent’s house to celebrate our wedding. Small and intimate, we wanted something that would start at midday and finish late afternoon, (I’m 6 months pregnant after all).
Myriads of lipsticks, foundations, brushes and concealers grace my makeup cupboards. As a blogger and self confessed beauty addict, it’s difficult to get away from new launches and makeup products.

It’s no secret that I love a good salon treatment. For me it’s a chance to relax and have some well enjoyed ‘me time’. But let’s be real, all of these salon visits can stack up financially.
Hands up if you love a beauty subscription box but are usually super disappointed when they arrive (me!). Well I feel your pain so when I teamed up with Roccabox to bring you a beauty box this May, I took everything into consideration.
With just under a fortnight to go until my wedding, naturally I turned to the Met Gala for makeup inspiration.
I love a good holiday. Last year I was fortunate to travel to Costa Rica, Rome, Las Vegas, Marrakech, Cornwall, and Venice and this year, well I’m currently in Cornwall and planning a little honeymoon (which is proving tricky now that I’m pregnant).
I guess you could say I know a thing or two about false lashes.
When it comes to skincare, you’re probably satisfied with your cleansing, toning and moisturising routine. I’m guessing it’s only when you examine more closely that you start picking at things that you hadn’t really noticed before.
When I worked on mags at The Times and The Sun it became a bit of a joke among everyone on my bank of desks just how much I loved a beauty box. Each month I’d receive a box of five high end goodies to try. They were always luxe or full size products – not the type you can usually sample at your designer beauty counter. Are they worth it?
This Spring there are so many new beauty trends and launches. For me, this Spring I’m mixing things up a bit. Staying are my foundations, my bronzers and mascara’s but going are my boring black liners and eyeshadows.
