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… Paris

I stepped off the metro, on the first Thursday in February to the smell of croissant. I followed my offline Citymapper to my hotel a four minute walk away, undoubtedly looking like the tourist I so clearly was- dressed in a giant hat, wide legged trousers, a blazer, and once-upon-a-time white Reeboks, peeking out at […]

Blush Loves – Beauty Pie

I love presents. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one. What I love more though is post. Maybe it’s seven years at boarding school, when post was literally the highlight of our week; There was no better feeling than receiving a care pack from home, or no worse feeling when your friend would literally […]

Blush Guide to Hand Luggage

Unless you’re Kim Kardashian or Mariah Carey, flying probably sucks. Packing stress plus security checks, dehydration and a poorly ventilated plane set you up for hours of anxiety, exhaustion and general fractiousness. Flying is known to dry out your skin, bring on head and ear aches and increase risk of breakouts and eye inflammation. The […]

Blush Tests.. Miu Miu’s Ombre Lips

Ombre lips: old news, sort of. They’ve been in every runway roundup for many moons, and in the age old way have trickled down onto the high street. Nyx and Topshop have specific kits for achieving a two toned lip. But they are typically two very similar shades: a lighter and a darker. Twice as interesting […]

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 […]

“I Work Out.” Blush Styles – Activewear

I’ve recently moved to Chelsea, which is all very lovely, but it does come with its disadvantages. One of them being that whenever you tell anyone where you live they raise their eyebrows and say ‘ooh that’s posh!’ In a kind of weird judgey way, or call you a rich c u next Tuesday, which […]

Introducing – Demeter Fragrances

As we all know, it’s cool to be cool. And a lot of being cool relies on being different. (For those of you wondering, yes, I am the ultimate authority on being cool.) In aesthetic, unusual-ness is usually highly praised: be it ugly trousers, strange lipstick or giant hair. This is all well and good, […]

12 Reasons why we love Naomi Campbell

Naomi Campbell needs little introduction and you probably already have an opinion about her. Whether that’s a phone-throwing loony, the Super of all Supers, Queen of the Catwalk, Bad biatch repping London or just an amazing woman who looks even better at 45. Whatever your opinion, her greatness is undeniable. She’s a legend: for fashion […]

Straight Outta Brick Lane. Blush Styles: Streetwear

The line between streetwear and sportswear is so fine, it’s a dot. I’ve always dabbled in both. As I made the move from awkward tomboy in baggy nike tracksuit bottoms and Adidas poppers, to trying to be a girl in skintight, cropped Abercrombie vest tops and JW trackies. At Uni I went through the denim mini […]

Get the Look – Lily Aldridge’s Seventies Summer

This week’s probably the last week, we can really get behind a summer trend. London rain isn’t helping, but as sad as it is to say, summer is drawing to a close. Whilst I’m still in need of a lot more tanning, there are so many beauty looks for next season I can’t wait to […]

‘Tis the season to get healthy but you’re ten days in and already regretting telling everyone about your dry Jan/diet/fitness plan. Lagging with weeks to go, to avoid the looming allure of giving in, it’s probably time to mix things up. When it comes to eating well and being healthy, I prefer the quickest and […]

Blush loves…Topshop’s Kabuki Brush

  When I first started buying make-up I was advised to always use natural brushes, mainly because they lasted longer. Natural brushes are great and to be fair, the ones I have bought have lasted for years. They’re easy to care for- you just need to wash them regularly with shampoo (although I prefer face […]

Beauty Backstage – Giles solves your winter hair woes with the plait

British weather can tend to be a bit of a bugger. You spend ages tending to your locks, only to be greeted by a gust of wind as soon as you leave the house.  Wherever you live you are always likely to face weather-induced woes, such as: shrinkage with humidity, hair drying-out in the sun […]

Lipstick Friday!! It’s a thing; kind of.

When you’re trying to look professional it’s hard to know how far you can go with make-up.  Although less is always best, sometimes you fancy going a bit cray and working a lipstick.  Dress down Fridays doesn’t really apply to me, but I think on a Friday, especially with the imminence of after-work drinks, it’s […]

Christopher Bailey, understands British weather so consequently understands rain.
