A couple of weeks ago I had a rare ! day off, I should rephrase that a rare ! weekend off from work with my really good friend for her birthday.
As a treat we decided to book into Hotel Du Vin Harrogate as we both love Harrogate and Hotel Du Vin had offered a “special offer “ to stay on a Sunday night.
On arrival we were greeted by a welcoming reception team who wanted to check if our journey to Harrogate was a success and assisted us to the parking at the front of the hotel. As a truly amazing surprise for my friend, we booked in one of the loft suite bedrooms “Dom Perignon.”.

Did you know that one bottle of Bioderma Sensibio H2O is sold every 5 seconds around the world?
Bioderma as a Dermatological Laboratory have been around since the 1970’s and its main aspect is to place biology approach towards understanding the skin and to create
So I thought as I use this product myself I should write a blog.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O is truly one product I cannot live without. I use this product on myself. I love to wear dramatic smoky eye make-up and eyeliner and it always removes easily and efficiently. Plus each model or private client I meet Bioderma Sensibio H2O is always...
In my previous blogs I have written about Kiss the Moon products and one of my all time favourite product is the Calm After Dark Sleep Balm and the Glow range.
Recently I have been using the LOVE After Dark Face Oil and initially was unsure whether to try this or not as my skin struggles with Rose as an ingredient.
I was reassured by the founder of Kiss the Moon that due to the high grade of Rose absolute that my skin should be ok using this product. I have since been using LOVE After Dark Face Oil every single night for 3 months and my skin has been truly amazing.
At the end of last year I had the most exciting photo shoot, I have been part of to create the new campaign for “Jim Steinman’s Bat Out of Hell The Musical” I am so excited that it is now showing at the London Coliseum in the West End of London.
Who cannot love Meat Loaf and the iconic album Bat Out of Hell where we have all sung our hearts out, dancing in our kitchens/bedrooms and at the school disco’s to the never ending songs of I’d do anything for Love, You Took the Words Right out of my Mouth (Hot Summer Night), Dead Ringer for Love and more.
I suggest you get your tickets...
Holiday season is now upon us and it is a rare opportunity for me to take some time off from the world of makeup.
I am currently on a mini trip to Florence for 3 days. We always have the dilemma of what products we should have in our hand luggage to keep our skin hydrated and looking amazing in the sunshine.
Here are my essential hand luggage items to take produced by Bioderma:
I cannot guarantee that all of the make-up and skincare products I recommend will suit you. I only use products I personally think are good having tried them on myself and my clients but everyone’s...
In February I got to work in New York City for Pratt Institute on their latest lookbook and a chance to work with some amazing creative in the industry.
I wanted to share with you and will share more in the future of how I create the looks which have been published in magazines, online or for campaigns and editorials.
On an evening a strong look is perfect and with the festival season of music and art looming why not embrace this look…..
I am a huge believer in preparing the skin before I apply any make-up on the skin and will spend a good time massaging the face before I apply the skinbase...
This is a must have for your handbag at all times. Small things come in small packages and the Ren Vita Mineral Lip Balm is one of them.
I have been using this Lip Balm for over two months on myself as well as my clients and models, both male and female. I can honestly say 99.9% have all said how wonderful
this product is from how it makes the lips feel to the texture.
Why I love REN Vita Mineral Lip Balm:
its soothes dry lips and perfect prep for applying lipstick
if you don’t want to wear lipstick as a colour this is perfect to enhance the lips
handy for travel and your...
We are at this time of year when the weather seasons have changed, we are exposing our skins to the sunshine and planning holidays abroad. We all love the feeling sunshine has on us from “feel good factor” to some health benefits of Vitamin D. We must, though, protect our skin from the damages that sunshine causes from minor issues to major skin cancer.
I have been trying the latest range from Bioderma who are leading brands in research into looking after your skin. Bioderma Photoderm Bronz SPF30 in a Dry Oil which is idea for sensitive fair skin. As a rule I find suntan products...
As the beauty columnist for La Di Da Magazine I am so excited to see when La Di Da Magazine is released on each issue. I quickly open the copy of the page of my beauty column (this issue it is page 15).
This issue it is about the strength of the red lipstick that truly never goes out of date and can be worn in any season throughout the year. This image was taken from an editorial shoot with Next Clothing for this issue and during the day I created this stunning look with lipstick by Pixi by Petra.
