The Review: Body Shop’s Bath Jelly

I LOVE products from the Body Shop so much and can’t believe it’s taken me so long to sing the praises of their range of bath jellies. I’m one of those strange people who love the texture of things (especially when it comes to liking or disliking the texture of food) and I can’t get more »

The hunt for the perfect shampoo and conditioner

IN SCHOOL a friend and I decided that having clean hair meant we had a good day… Scruffy, unwashed hair meant trouble was on the cards. 20 years later (yikes am I really 32?) I still religiously washed my hair every day, fearful of what tangled locks may bring me (caveat: excluding hangover days, obvs). more »

The Review: Ayurveda Health Spa & Beauty Centre, London

THE first time I had an Ayuyrveda massage it was pretty awkward. I was in India and, flanked by two women, lay there completely starkers as they slathered me in oil and whooshed their hands all over my body. There wasn’t a whole lot of ‘massage’ going on, and the sensation was incredibly ticklish which more »

What a girl wants?

NO, we’re not talking about the 90’s hit song, but raising a question that has baffled men for over centuries – just what is it that that us women want? Besides fashion and a caring partner, all women love to have fun! A night out at a local pub or a night in at the comfort of more »

The beach, a book and a bloomin’ big cocktail (and bad-ass kebabs) … Bodrum, Turkey

The Review: Moisturising Body Sorbets from The Body Shop

Important question: What denim will you be investing in this autumn?

A PAIR of perfect jeans is pretty much the Holy Grail of fashion. They aren’t easy to find but when you slip on the ones that will transform your wardrobe (ok your life), you won’t regret all that time seeking them out. We love AG Jeans from fashion site Trilogy. The label was founded in more »

London – you may be our fave fashion capital, but summer hasn’t been long enough!

THERE may be a few fashion capitals around the world, but can any of them compare to London? Women look impossibly chic in France, impeccably dressed in NYC but nothing compares to the eclectic style that floods every street in the capital of England. As the sun takes off his hat and starts to put more »
