I have quite a few favourites this month, so we best get started! Beauty Favourites: Skincare (L-R) Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish La Roche Posay Effaclar M Soap and Glory Hand Food Avon Solutions Perfect Tone Night Cream I've had a great month, skin wise and I think it is...

Initially I thought I'd wear a dress, but after the one I saw online disappointed, I walked around Topshop looking for other options. Topshop; £18 I picked these up as all of my black leggings seem to be falling apart. These are extremely thick so I think they'll be hard wearing. You...

It's a beauty cult product, and is usually out of stock, but out of luck I found it online and both Debenhams and House of Fraser had it in, so I was spoilt for choice. I created this look using Virgin, Naked, Buck and Hustle. I also used Hustle underneath my lower lashes to create a smokey...

I decided to do a beauty page for Harper's Bazaar on the Metallic trend. It was a lot of work to say the least but I'm glad it's done and I'm pleased with the outcome, so I thought I'd share it with you! Words: TIME TO SHINE It's time to embrace the new metallic party favours and put...
