Been away for a bit. Here's why...

New job over at the amazing Stylist magazine.

New beauty blog over at The Guardian. http://www.guardian.co.uk/fashion/fashion-blog/2011/aug/31/beauty-for-dark-skin

Increasing love of Tumblr, just because it looks more chic and its more visual.

I will more likely than not come back to this blog in the next few months, so for now, join me on Tumblr:

LUST: Marnie from The Hour

This is the best picture I could possibly find, but it barely does justice to how brilliant Marnie's (aka Oona Chaplain) make-up is in The Hour. Its the chalky pastel aqua shades with defined brows and red lipstick that shouldn't work on anyone, but seem to look both feminine and modern at the same time. Even in recreating retro looks, its easy to just stick to the red lipstick and black eyeliner combo - if you're a rockabilly gal day-in-day out, it's nice to have a few more options.

REVIEW: MD Formulations Facial

Eeek, late review!
I had an amazing md formulations facial, which was my first medi-brand treatment! The brand is FDA approved and works on the deeper living layers of the skin.

The products use high strength glycolic and vitamin a which do, er, tingle a little on the first application. But stick with them and you’ll definitely see the results. It’s used for treatment of skin conditions like acne, rosacea, pigmentation, dehydration, sensitivity, eczema and psoriasis so the range is perfect for problem skins.
As for the facial, my skin felt brighter and it cleared up my problem area which is between the eyebrows. Worth it for that alone!!

SLEB: Jessie J

I wasn't hugely into her old black bob. But this is a truly EPIC hair colour. Massive Massive WIN.

PEEK: Hyper Hyper Japanese festival!

NAILS: OPI Rainbow Connection meets Rimmel

As soon as a new nail polish hits my desk I'm physically compelled to try it out. NO matter how hideous the combo. 3 great polishes, amazing separately, dire together. BEHOLD:
