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 […]

Introducing – Chantecaille Foundation, Vital Essence & Matte Chic

In her last piece for Blush, Annie introduces us to Chantecaille… Chantecaille is a brand that has always seemed a little out of my league. In spite of what you may think, glamorous, I’m not. I love makeup and skincare and all things luxe, but at heart I think I’m secretly quite low maintenance. Chantecaille, […]

Blush Guide to Hand Luggage

Flying is known to dry out your skin, bring on head and ear aches and increase risk of breakouts and eye inflammation. The […]

Blush Asks… Charlotte Mensah

It’s not often that I come away from an interview so pumped, but after my chat with Charlotte Mensah, I left feeling so inspired by somebody who had experienced personal tragedy at an early age, but instead of letting it knock her down, endeavoured to achieve so much. She’s won British Afro Hairdresser of the Year twice, […]

Introducing – Rituals Body Care

The having of showers is, let’s face it, a deeply utilitarian act. It needs to be done, and if someone argues otherwise, I’d question standing downwind of them. It’s a boring but profoundly necessary task, meaning it must be undertaken pretty routinely. But this new Rituals stuff has opened my mind to a whole new […]

Blush Loves…Christmas Gifts

It’s that time of year and Christmas is upon us. Many of he big brands have relinquished gift-sets for advent calendars this year. And whilst I love the idea of getting a new Jo Malone fragrance every day, it’s pretty risky business; much like buying a box of chocolates, I never want the nut and at […]
