Tools for cutting a fringe

A fringe is one of those things I go-and-forth on constantly. I have very long and dead-straight hair, so I always want to ‘add’ something to it. Over the past two years, I have cut a full fringe and grown it out. Then cut short flicky bangs and grown them out. Back in December, I cut the grown out short…

For NHS guidance on SPF usage, please click here. I am sure we have all seen the photograph that circulated a few years ago of William McElliot, a 66 year old trucker who had spent 28 years driving around Chicago. Having been exposed to the sun, the left side of his face looked significantly more aged than his right. Despite…

Want to hear all about my pet hate? It’s an unusual one (in that I’ve never heard anyone else talk about it!). It’s the people that say ‘it’s just hair!’. I know that sounds ridiculous but let me explain... It’s not just hair for me. For so many people it is a huge part of their identity. A way to…

I can't even remember the last time I did a makeup review. Have I actually? Well, let's start off by doing for this brand - Lily Lolo.

I have been watching Trinny on YourTube for months (maybe years) - I absolutely love Trinny and been a fan of all her TV work over the years; what I really love about Trinny and her beauty…

Disney has been such a huge part of my life from pretty much birth. Apparently my mum used to pick them up on VHS at boot fairs for me as a baby and I would happily sit in my bouncer watching hours of Disney Sing Along Songs (does anyone else remember those?!). It’s not something I have ever grown out…

It's no secret- every pregnancy is different. Working with pregnant women almost every day in my previous career, I saw how differences in pregnancy presented themselves and eventually experienced it for myself in my second pregnancy, which was very different from my first. With my first pregnancy, the changes to my body were not drastic but my second pregnancy I…

What is Maskne? Mask related acne otherwise known as ‘MASKNE’ will typically appear in the way of pimples/blemishes, redness, or irritation around your mouth, cheeks, and jawline. Basically anywhere your mask touches. Sweat, oil, and bacteria are essentially just building up underneath your face masks and blocking up your pores, not to mention the incessant rubbing of the material which…
