Introducing – & Other Stories Foundation

Since launching a couple of years ago, & Other Stories has fast become the bane of my wallet and the light of my life. Grown-up fashion for Zara fans, looking for something a little more unique,;Stories also happens to be perfect, for those who may have grown out of Topshop, but aren’t quite minimal enough for […]

Introducing… Epara Skincare

We all know we’re supposed to take care of our skin and thanks to a post-teen dabble in the Clinique 3 -step programme, most of us know what skin type we are. I have the pleasure of being Combination: which basically means I’m a little of everything. A bit dry here and a bit oily […]

Blush visits : Jo Loves

I’ve long been a fan of the legendary Jo Malone. Who doesn’t know the story of how the self made entrepreneur built one of the most recognisable luxury fragrance brands, only to lose the rights to her name, and the option of working in the industry, she had so significantly shaped. After a 5 year […]

Blush Loves – The Zara Home – Perfume Collection

Zara is one of those not so secret gems. You can always rely on it, for that last minute change of clothes before an event, that trend led piece you’re not quite ready to invest in, or those strappy sandals you need for your bestie’s wedding. It’s the high street’s answer to affordable chic. Another […]

Introducing… Maybelline’s Loaded Bold Lipsticks

Blush writer Annie is back with another gem from across the pond.  I feel like I’ve been messing with makeup long enough now, that bland pretty things just aren’t appealing to me anymore. The problem is that weird, ugly, experimental makeup products are usually the reserve of high end brands for editorial shoots and haute […]

Blush Loves… By Terry – Thè Glace Perfume

I’ve long been a fan of By Terry as my multitude of early posts, pretty much dedicated to her every launch can attest. I love the brow pens, the mascara, eyeshadow sticks and perfume. Terry’s Rouge Nocturne is my signature winter scent so I was unsurprisingly giddy at the prospect of a spring upgrade. Enter […]

Introducing – Joan Collins – Timeless Beauty

I think I speak for all of us when I say we harbor a secret fantasy of being Joan Collins when we grow up. She seems to epitomise a kind of knowingly hilarious yet also deeply sincere glamour, which I, as a bumbling idiot, can only daydream about emulating. But now I can! (Not really […]

Get the Look – Tom Ford’s SS15 Sexpot

As my rather ‘proper’ retro bob begins its journey into a lob, I’ve been looking for a look to sex things up. It doesn’t get much sexier than Tom Ford’s SS15 woman, with her sequin nipple tasseled dress, shaggy hair and morning after makeup. Ford is always a safe bet when in search of something […]

The Diary

So this week has been a work week. Lots of press days but lots of fun. The week started with the launch of the Trilogy Christmas collection, which was a very chic take on Christmas as they opted for painterly prints as opposed to kitsch Xmas merch, meaning that you can stock up and hand […]

Laura Mercier are known for their always excellent primer, but less so for their foundations, which is a shame as they’re great- and cater for every skin tone, something which I always appreciate. Their foundation powder has been my go to for years now, but I always used it as a finishing product as I […]

Berry lips have been off the radar for a while now, but for some reason last weekend- out of nowhere, I whipped out my Chanel, Rouge Coco Shine No.92. It was a sultry saturday evening, my eyes were a Nars shade of copper bronze, I’d caught the sun and it just seemed fitting. After a […]
