BEAUTY: Getting Cheeky

I have a new favourite London cafe, and a new favourite bar, and a new favourite salon, and they’re all Cheeky, Cheeky Parlour in Shoreditch that is!  Sunday brunch with the girls was given a great little twist this weekend when I booked for brunch at Cheeky. Offering Cheeky Eats (cake pops and cupcakes) and Cheeky drinks (cocktails anyone?) while you have your hair or … Continue reading BEAUTY: Getting Cheeky

BEAUTY: Nails Of The Week – Metallic

This week I decided to have a little fun with this Nails Inc. metallic silver “South Kensington” polish. It looks great in the bottle but I find the consistency isn’t fantastic. It requires a lot of coats to get it looking opaque and even then the brush strokes are quite visible with the reflective nature of metallic colours. It won’t be visiting South Kensington again … Continue reading BEAUTY: Nails Of The Week – Metallic

BEAUTY: Nails Of The Week – Nails Inc George Street

I recently tried a new Nails Inc colour ‘George Street’ which is a light colour somewhere in-between mauve and beige. I used this with Sally Hansen ‘Complete Care’ which was also a first time try. The results were disappointing, I’m unsure which of the products are to blame until I try them separately. I held a bias against George Street to begin with as I … Continue reading BEAUTY: Nails Of The Week – Nails Inc George Street

FASHION/PERSONAL STYLE: Zara and Yuki Tokyo

As promised I’ve finally posted the outfit that went with my Petra K inspired hair. I’m obsessed with this outfit and have been wearing it far too much! The Yuki Dress is body con but still suitable for work and my Zara coat is the perfect mix of classic and contemporary. As for the shoes… they’re surprisingly comfortable (thanks to  the dozens of people who asked if my feet … Continue reading FASHION/PERSONAL STYLE: Zara and Yuki Tokyo

FASHION: Paolita Swimwear Playful Promises Kiss Me Deadly and Lucile Lingerie

With snow still fresh in my memory it was a warm change to see some swimwear and lingerie on show. My First show of London Fashion Week this year was the Paolita Swimwear, Playful Promises,  Kiss Me Deadly and Lucile Lingerie collections showcased with a Circus theme at Cirque du Soir complete with topless fire dancer Aurora Galore. In typical Fashion Week…. Fashion….. this was probably the only … Continue reading FASHION: Paolita Swimwear Playful Promises Kiss Me Deadly and Lucile Lingerie

BEAUTY: Lush Cupcake

For my birthday I was given an amazing Lush Peppermint Chocolate face mask which smells exactly like cupcake frosting. For months I had been visiting Lush and sniffing the display pot to the point where I had brown face mask on the tip of my nose and was walking around Westfield oblivious. It’s very hard to use, but only because you must have extremely good willpower to resist trying … Continue reading BEAUTY: Lush Cupcake
