I’m a big fan of matte nails, and they’re super on trend right now, so when I went to see Jess at Monaco Nails & Beauty this week I knew that I wanted a matte manicure! After Jess talked me out of having black nails (what? It goes with everything in my wardrobe, and looks fab with a glossy French tip!), I decided on Artistic Colour Gloss in Privileged – a deep purple with a heavy dose of glitter that looks absolutely amazing in matte. Thanks Jess, it looks fantastic. View Post

Editorial shoot with Nocturne Girl Jaimee + a chance to win

This time a year ago, I had the pleasure of shooting with the delectable Nocturne Girl Jaimee (the extremely talented young lady behind Cog and Compass who designed and made her own dress for this shoot!) for a feature in Nocturne Magazine.  For this feature, the girls  were each asked to portray a goddess from mythology, to represent her in their own way.

Jaimee chose to portray Nemesis, the Greek Goddess of divine justice and vengeance. Nemesis balanced the happiness and sadness of men, and punished those guilty of arrogance before the Gods. View Post

Review: SteamCream

Steamcream

When I saw my tin of STEAMCREAM in my Sample Bar Glam Pack, I was firstly excited about the cute packaging. I realise that amazing packaging doesn’t necessarily = amazing product, but in this case I was not disappointed!

First up, let’s talk about the packaging. STEAMCREAM comes in super cute limited edition tins with different prints – not only adorable, but collectable! Once the product has run out, you can wash them out and reuse them (I’ll be keeping handy things like hair pins in mine!). Bonus points for awesome packaging, STEAMCREAM! View Post
