Bags 2011

A woman can never have too many bags!


Unifiance Corrective Fine Film Make-up from La Roche-Posay is the ultimate concealer / camouflage make up for everyone that is looking to hide away anything from small imperfections like uneven skin and spots to birthmarks and scars. Its super fine, weightless formula is long lasting, oil- and fragrance free and therefor won't irritate your skin or cause break outs. Something else which I find to be a very big bonus point is that it's waterproof!

I have a fairly normal light complexion and am using number 11 Emulsion in Beige Champagne.
I have been using it for about three years and it is my go-to product whenever I want that bit more coverage or when my skin is uneven or playing up.

What I have noticed is that the price seems to have gone up very noticeably in the last few years.
It is now available for around £20.00 in various online stores like this one or from larger Boots stores.

The Miracle Worker that is Argan Oil

Argan Oil seems to be getting a more and more positive press on it’s miraculous powers as of lately. Argan Oil is not one of the latest concoctions out of a research lab but pretty much a good few thousands of years old. It’s an extract of the kernels of the argan tree which almost exclusively grows in Morocco (that is where the famous counterpart has got it’s name from). Women there have known its powers for decades and have been using it not only as a condiment for food but also on their skin and hair! It is naturally rich in vitamin E and unsaturated fatty acids like Omega 9 which actively helps to strengthen, moisturize and smoothen your skin and hair and reduce breakage.
It doesn’t leave your hair oily or greasy which is one of Argan oils big plus points and especially now in the sunnier time of year its protective agents act as a layer of protection and prevent harmful elements like UV rays, pollutants and various other chemicals from penetrating your hair.
I have been using Argan Oil on my hair for about two months now and it’s grown to be one of my all-time favourite hair products. As every girl I have gone through my fair share of products, spent my last pennies on that hailed new product that was supposed to save my day. And boy have I been disappointed, uncountable amounts of time…  But not this time!
Not only does it save you from spending your hard earned money on expensive designer products, (any cheap old shampoo will do) but it also reduces the drying time drastically and you get a few more minutes in bed every morning! It is that good! It gives salon-like, super smooth, shiny and manageable hair every single time! I only use about two to three pumps every time after I washed my hair and work it from the ends up. If I do blow dry and curl or straighten my hair I do however use another layer of heat protectant – just to be sure. One bottle will last you a very long time and it really is worth the money! 
Now down to the nitty gritty;



Moroccan Oil is probably the most famous version that is available at the moment. Used by many hairstylists and loved by celebrities world-wide.  The normal Moroccan Oil is available for around £30.00 in selected stores here in London or online.
Lee Stafford however has just recently brought out his very own line of Argan Oil products.
His is available at most
Boots stores and is actually on promotion right now. It’s yours for only £7.99, down from £11.99.

I have used both products and have to say that Lee Stafford’s version will do the job just fine and I personally cannot see a difference when using either one.  

Now, go! Run and don’t miss out on this one! x

Vogue Covers 1916 to 2011


Over the past few months Bobbi Brown's blusher in Pale Pink has become my absolute favourite. I have to admit that I would have never gone for that shade but at my last beauty session the assistant was cheeky enough to apply it without showing it to me first and I've been in love with it ever since.

It is a really strong pink in the compact but once applied it turns into a matt and softy, well, pale sort of pink. The super light texture glides effortlessly onto the skin and most importantly stays in place all day. It brightens up your face and it looks healthier and fresher in an instant.

Pale Pink
With a blusher like this all you really need to wear is some light foundation, a little eyeliner, mascara and you're ready to go!

Of course it comes in many many other shades and choosing your perfect colour really depends on your complexion but for me the Pale Pink is the ultimate must have for this Spring!

To find out what your perfect shade is visit your local Bobbi Brown Studio and maybe even book in your very own personal make up lesson! x

One of my favourite dresses for Spring 2011 is the gorgeous red Margot lace dress by Erdem.

The vibrant red combined with the fragile lace and the sublime cut makes this an absolute must have for this years spring wardrobe! If like me you are feeling a little bit bugged by the hefty price tag, there is a slightly cheaper version  from French Connection available. Hallelujah!

Beautiful Monday

My favourite foundation at the moment is Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 by M.A.C.
I am absolutely in love with it! It gives very good matt coverage without looking cakey and it leaves a very soft, non-sticky feeling on your skin. It's absolutely buildable but for your every day look you really only need to use a tiny bit in morning and it will last you all day.
It also includes a light sun protector which comes very handy now that it's getting a little bit sunnier outside.
I apply it with a foundation brush and lightly tap it in with my fingers around the eyes - I find that this gives it a finer and more even look. I know you are not supposed to put foundation around your eyes but I prefer the more even look. To prevent the sensitive skin around the eyes from drying out I use a good eye cream before applying the foundation.
Given, for around £20.00 it of course is not the cheapest you can get but I think that you almost always get very good quality for the money you leave behind at your M.A.C. counter.
