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 Styles: Workout Wear with Elle Sport & More

Maybe it’s Marathon Fomo, or the fact I’ve just moved next door to a Pure Gym; but I’ve been feeling rather sporty of late. Whilst I’m yet to extend my commitment to fitness, beyond walking to Soho, I have made the first crucial step: dressing the part. Deciding what to buy, when it comes to […]

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 […]

Testing the Treatment – Smooth You Dalston – Luxury Pedicure

As readers of Blush will know, I love a good treatment, and I have tried some greats. I’ve been to the outskirts of North London, swanked it up in Mayfair and been to the creme de la creme of neighbourhood classics in Chelsea and Hampstead. It’s been a while since I ventured east for a […]

Testing the Treatment – The Mandara Spa

My skin has been considerably unruly of late. Perhaps it’s all the stress of launching a new business, perhaps it’s because I consider a pack of chocolate digestives a hearty breakfast, or perhaps in the absence of the sun this summer, my pores have given up and come to the conclusion that they’ll never need […]

Get the Look – Nude Lips for Dark Skin

  Finding anything ‘nude’ coloured when you’re darker of skin can be a huge challenge. At my school, we were supposed to wear skin coloured tights; a requirement that lead to me either wearing orangey fake tan nylons or stockings that made me look as though I’d been dipped in sickly beige paint. When it […]

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 […]

Blush Loves…Bangs

Researching for an upcoming shoot, I found myself repeatedly pinning pictures of brunette girls with blunt bobs and fringes. I’ve always been a fan of the fringe- mainly because I can’t have one. I did try to cut one when I was about six, but an afro fringe doesn’t really work, at all. There are […]

Testing the Treatment – London Facialist Claudia Fallah

The power of a good facial can’t be underestimated.  Whilst a facial works to plump, rehydrate and revitalise skin, nothing beats disappearing from daily life for an hour to zone in on you. Frequent facials are the unifying treatment all celebrities swear by and it is a treatment that sometimes we forget we can, and […]
