For the past week I’ve been battling through an attack of the stuffy sniffles. One minute I’m struggling to breathe through my nasal passages, the next I’m fighting to find my pack of tissues at the bottom of my bag as there’s been a nose explosion that’s making its way down my chin. That latter scenario happened in public. In front of a wave of pointing and staring school children. Nice. My mucus levels may not be able to make up their mind but two things have stayed constant – an incessant red nose and a Post Malone-esque tone. But you know me and of course there have been some beauty bits that have come to the forefront to cover my ruddy nozzle, make things a little more breathable and polish me off for public consumption. Enter the ‘I’ve Got a Cold Edit’…

I may have fallen into one of the biggest beauty blogger cliches there are, but last week I caved and purchased some Muji storage. Minimal? Yes. Convenient? Yes. Kardashian-inspired? Perhaps. But after carrying my whole makeup drawer, to the mirror with me each morning, rooting around and making a mess one too many times I thought it was time to decant my daily favourites into a more portable package. I opted for the smallest 2-drawer option available, so it’s been a bit of a tight squeeze, but here’s what has made the cut for the moment…

For this month’s Beauty Bag I thought I’d take a thematic colour approach. The blues are back. It’s a revolution that started on my fingertips and now I’m ready for it to creep up, blend out and brush on to my eyes. Wintry? Check. On trend? Check. Easy peasy to pull off? Not so much. So if you’re looking blue in the company of royal, navy and azure-like shades I’ve got the deats on some good starting points…

Fashion Week Mash-Up

As promised last week, here are my favourite beauty bits from all the Fashion Weeks thrown on my face – makeup mash-up style. Different aesthetics? Who cares? A trend on trial if you will. It all went on and the results weren’t too horrendous. Here are the deets:

Fashion Week has wrapped for the season; with an air-kiss goodbye in Paris yesterday it marked the end of a full month of a non-stop fashion feed. Now I stick pretty rigidly to the beauty side of things mainly due to the fact that the most adventurous it gets in my wardrobe is a patterned pair of trousers that I pull out for popping to pick up milk from the shop but I quite like the element of backstage beauty. Seeing what artists are creating what looks for what shows, getting a preview of next season’s launches in action and experiencing cheekbone envy with every single goddamn model. So I thought I’d give you a rundown of my favourite beauty bits that I spotted many the Instagram picture of…

My daily shower routine has been transformed since my introduction to Nivea – not a new brand to me but one I’ll be happy to spend lots more time with. The Creme Care Shower Gel is just one of a range of beautiful fragranced products for the body. As a body moisturiser enthusiast (I am completely addicted to the stuff!), the Nivea In Shower Moisturiser isn’t an obvious product for me but I have to say I am really impressed with it. I’ll explain.

It may just be my current love for MasterChef but I can’t seem to peel myself away from the kitchen at the moment. That’s not a bad thing mind you; there’s always some spaghetti if you’re feeling hungry and dinners have been getting a little more adventurous (you want to see a ‘Day in Food’?) and it means that I’ve been getting a little more experimental DIY beauty-wise. So this weekend I thought I’d focus on the latter and bring you the results of three DIY beauty tricks I’ve been giving a go…
