What to Wear for Summer in The City

Every summer we are inundated with vacay shopping guides, and every year I reach new levels of FOMO. Whilst I most definitely indulge in a summer trip or three, I’m yet to achieve the 4 hour work week lifestyle, in which I can spend 6 months here and 6 months in the sun. Nevertheless I […]

Introducing… Vapour Organic Beauty’s Atmosphere Luminous Foundation

When it comes to makeup, in spite of my intense love for it, I am fundamentally quite lazy. I’ve accepted it, and therefore no one can use it against me. I probably wear makeup twice a week, and when I do it’s usually as few products as possible. Except when it comes to glitter, but […]

Festival Glamour Inspiration: Elie Saab SS18

I’m a huge fan of all things Elie Saab. Whilst girly isn’t usually my style, nothing makes me swoon like one of his dresses. Glitzy, glam and impressively modern, he is the indisputable red carpet king. With Coachella underway and festival season on the horizon, I’ve been contemplating on how to approach this annual dressing […]

Blush Loves… ChloBo

I think I may have found the antidote to this dreary non Spring, we’ve all been experiencing. I was lucky enough to be invited down to the recently opened Mandrake Hotel, a stunning boutique gem tucked away on Fitzrovia’s Newman St. I was there for lunch, but most importantly, to experience new jewellery brand, ChloBo’s […]

Introducing … NOTO Botanics Hydra Highlighter

Although there’s a time and a place for a full, beaming, metallic highlighter, I think the future of glow is an altogether more subtle affair. Something which mimics a naturally healthy and hydrated complexion, combining dewy oils with a subtle wash of colour, or iridescent pigment, is a totally cute and modern way to shine. […]

Regular readers of Blush, will know how much I love a good a treatment. Full body massages, blow dries, facials; I’ll take them all.

Spring Style Inspiration: Denim, Silk & Sportswear

It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I’ve been finding it very difficult to decide what my first dip back into the pond would be. I knew I wanted to create a GTL, but I couldn’t quite decide what to cover. My current style obsessions are: Denim (- it’s actually getting quite worrying how […]

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 […]

Introducing… Mario Badescu’s Healing & Soothing Mask

The world of problem skin is, believe it or not, a problematic one. It’s almost like playing a game of whack-a-mole with your face. Once you get a breakout under control, something else will pop up. You’ll treat the suppurating, throbbing sores, only to be left with flakey, scaley dry patches. Fun and glam, I […]

Blush Styles – Rocks and Ripped Jeans

I resisted the temptation of ripped jeans for quite some time and rather stupidly waited until September to buy them, so this is a short style piece on how to try and make ripped jeans work for Autumn Winter. Two other looks I loved that I haven’t had a chance to shoot yet are… fishnets […]

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 […]
