The CEW Beauty Awards 2015 – celebrating the beauty industry

April 29, 2015 LLG Beauty

Well, this was a lovely way to spend Friday lunchtime last week. I had been asked to present an award at this year’s CEW Awards, which honour the most outstanding beauty products as voted for by more than 700 CEW members – all from the beauty industry. It was quite nerve-wracking – not the public speaking […]

What’s In My Handbag: Everyday essentials from lip balm to sunglasses

April 4, 2015 Accessories

On my hall table there is a lovely old wooden box in which I keep handbag-sized things so that each time I change my bag (which is at least every two days, and usually more as I have a breakfast meeting, a dog walk and a smart evening do most days, all of which require a different bag) […]

Beauty: The Headmasters 2015 Blow-Dry Collection

March 18, 2015 LLG Beauty

Along with going to the gym, blow drying my hair is one of my least favourite activities. Although I’m not actually that bad at doing it myself, I absolutely loathe doing it.

The Daily Beauty: Suncream Saviours from La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF

January 6, 2015 LLG Beauty

(Photographed at Sri Panwa on Phuket, Thailand.) I have that most annoying of English skin: milky white, with a delightful blue tinge, that only needs to have a sunray glint in its direction to turn the most lobster shade of scarlet. Throw in a tendency to rosacea, eczema and dehydration and it’s just really all the […]

Philosykos Eau de Parfum by Diptyque, & a Fig, Feta & Honey Salad

September 12, 2014 LLG Beauty

It’s most definitely autumn outside. Although it’s just warm enough to wear shorts in the afternoon, and I automatically still  pick up my sunglasses when I leave the house, there is that underlying nip in the air that says that summer is over. I always start wearing a different scent as the seasons change. Today […]

Shipwrecked by Stephen: Bumble & bumble at Port Eliot Festival 2014

August 6, 2014 LLG Beauty

Everyone loves milliner Stephen Jones. It’s a straightforward fashion fact. And to have him on site at Port Eliot Festival last week, creating bespoke millinery looks for free, for festival goers  in association with Bumble & bumble was an absolute dream.

The Daily Beauty: Mystic Tan at Heidi Klein

July 7, 2014 LLG Beauty

It’s no big secret that I am naturally the colour of skimmed milk – white with a hint of blue. In the winter I am content to give snow blindness to anyone glancing at my bare legs, but in summer I prefer a more bronzed glow. If I can be arsed. Which is why I […]

The Daily Beauty: Investigating the Science behind Olay Regenerist

May 21, 2014 LLG Beauty

One of the things that beauty writers like to talk about – a lot – is how face creams from the big companies like P&G are always worth investigating, given their significant investment in research and development. Of course, we can talk about it, but it’s not often that we get a chance to get up […]

The Daily Beauty: Blow Ltd London. (A super fast blow dry & make up service)

May 14, 2014 LLG Beauty

I’ve written before about my obsession with finding a great, quick blow out – or blow dry – in London. Manhattan spoiled me in this regard, and I’ve found it hard now that I live in London to get those great blow dries that last a few days, and give you shiny, bouncy, don’t need […]

The Daily Beauty: Lancome Vernis in Love. 343B Rose Pitimini Nail Varnish

March 27, 2014 LLG Beauty

I am, I think it’s fair to say, obsessed with this shade of nail varnish. It’s an absolutely perfect everyday shade: not too red, not too pale. It goes with everything, doesn’t chip, and lasts for ages, (especially with a top coat). I should add that those aren’t actually my hands above, but Emily’s. (For […]
