You've probably heard of Soho Farmhouse, if not for ALLLLLL the big & swanky blogger/press events being held there after it opened, someone, somewhere you know has probably been and you've seen their sneaky snaps on Instagram. I say 'sneaky' because the Farmhouse etiquette is in align of that with the entire Soho House group ; they don't like phones. Aside from being anti-social in public places, it allows any members to not have to worry about being papped & keeps privacy and anonymity for all the slebs who are staying.

I am making a real effort to make a change on my blog, and only 'review' products I have *properly* used...I mean for weeks into months rather than just a sniff and a swatch (YEP. IT HAPPENS). I also think when it comes to both skin & haircare you need to really use it to know how it works for you both short and longterm. I was sent a bunch of products from L'Oreal Professionnel to try a few months ago.....and I want to share with you my thoughts on this particulary exceptional range ; the Vitamino Color A-OX. I have been using this for months now, and it's really working miracles on my hair.

When I first clapped eyes on Kristen Stewart in the campaign images of the Chanel Les Rouges No.1 Fall collection, I had literally purchased the entire range in my head, and I was desperate to immerse myself in this sea of beautiful , luxe red hues.
As a whole, I think this collection is utterly fabulous, gorgeous and sensational. Red is timeless and beautiful and on the cheeks, lips and eye ; I LOVE RED. I am a huge girlfan of makeup artist Lucia Pica who creatively designed Chanel Les Rouges and I think colour-wise, this is the BEST Chanel makeup collection for many, many years.

Ok we've all, as discerning beauty lovers and makeup obsessives, heard the rumours and news about Sephora potentially opening this year in the UK. It started off with a flurry of twitters, and now Cosmopolitan ran this story, Huffington Post & more have published similar about the impending store opening in Westfield, Stratford. I've put my detective spectacles on, done some research and the conclusion is ;
IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN & IT'S HAPPENING BEFORE CHRISTMAS.

I just welcomed my September Birchbox in the post, and I think it's a REALLY good one. I have been a little 'meh' with a few of the more recent, but this has clawed it back for me ; and I think it's one of the best boxes for me of the year. *clapping hands emoji*. From what I have seen on blogs and social media too from consumers ; it has been well-received everywhere.
The theme is 'HEROES' ...do we care about themes? Not particulary no, we just care about those goddamn products, the sizes and the saving, but it's a good idea for Birchbox to keep within a theme I guess and keep a kind of story going. In the leaflet you get within the box, it tells you a little about the monthly theme and what it's about....if you are interested.

Lets' get straight to the point ; the Bareminerals BAREPRO Performance Wear Foundation is THE best foundation I have ever used from Bareminerals and I am pretty sure the best foundation powder I have ever tried. I have not been instantly wow-ed by a foundation for quite some time which is why I wanted to share this new launch with you, some before & after's and the general lowdown on why I am loving it so much.

With LFW AW17 looming upon us, I wanted to share with you some tips & tricks on how, as a makeup artist, you can get working on shows and assisting some top makeup artists. I have worked around 12 seasons of fashion week and have been fortunate enough to assist some of my most-loved makeup artists including Kirstin Piggot, Alex Box, Sharon Dowsett & Charlotte Tilbury. I am asked often about HOW to get working alongside these amazing artists, and here is a a few hints to get you on your way.
