#BlackPoundDay

Saturday 27th June marked the very first UK Black Pound Day. A monthly campaign setup by Swiss from So Solid Crew (you know you’re old when you remember SSC) to encourage people to buy products/services from Black owned businesses. As iffff I needed any more encouragement to spend my pounds, I’m buzzing that this campaign [...]

No Salon? No Problem

No Salon? No Problem

Lads, I don’t know about you, but I sure am missing the humble beauty salon. Hairdressers, nail technicians, beauty therapists, I took you for granted, and for that, I apologise. Despite isolation, we’re not wild beasts so self-care doesn’t need to be totally disregarded. There are some things we can do to pamper ourselves and [...]

Skin Glorious Skin

Skin Glorious Skin

Just before Christmas I adopted a new skincare routine, I had a complete overhaul which I don't usually do but for once in my life - it had an amazing effect! My skin has put me through a lot of sh*t throughout the years so I feel I’m due an a-ha moment. I had a [...]

Au Naturale…kinda

Au Naturale…kinda

Your skin is looking banging, you’re trying to embrace your inner earth mother and feminist warrior telling you, you don’t need a full face of makeup, you do you hunni. All this is good in theory, but come on, you can’t go cold turkey, right? The only people who can pull off 2 second, no [...]

Bye Bye Blemish

Bye Bye Blemish

Well, while our unwanted guests are residing on our face it’s a good idea to shield them away. Out of sight, out of mind. Of course, there [...]

Brr, it’s cold in here. There must be something in the atmosphere

Brr, it’s cold in here. There must be something in the atmosphere

P.S. it’s air conditioning. I don’t know how people in warmer climates do it. The hot to the cold and back again. A few hours in harsh air conditioning and my skin is shot. This post may be targeted more at my un-climatised UK readers who shrivel like a raisin when that chill hits. I [...]

Operation: Tan

Operation: Tan

Nothing puts me in a better mood than tan. I feel sleek, I feel slim, I feel like the bronze goddess I know I can be. Good tan however, requires good preparation. I have my tan routine down to a T. Smooth application + no patchiness it’s a win. Stay tuned if you want the [...]

Come on…Vogue

Come on…Vogue

So, my Irish sisters have been killing it lately with the tan game. I’ve already professed my love for Suzanne Jackson’s (aka SoSueMe) Dripping Gold so when Vogue Williams announced she was releasing a tan range, obviously, it was all aboard the hype train. Let’s get down to it. There’s a few checks that have [...]
