Hello ladies. So with the seasons Changing pretty dramatically here in London, literally going from humid and damp to wet freezing and windy over night, it’s played havoc with my skin. While recently I’ve been trying to stick to a good skin regime (cleansing, toning and moisturising) my skin still isn’t responding well to my current lifestyle. I work night shifts quite often and often have very little sleep and my life is a constant rush so along with that and the environment my skin isn’t looking to fresh. I wanted to try a new concealer. I decided, after staring at the dark circles round my eyes to get a ‘decent’ one. Not your standard drug store concealer which is… Read More →

Hello Girlies! So this week I thought I’d give Ombre hair a go! A few people had asked me what I thought of the new Loreal Paris DIY Préférence Wild Ombré Haircolour Kits. Luckily, I love the look and fancied a bit of a style shake up anyway so I was more than happy to trial this one out. To achieve the on trend look normally costs a fair amount of money, however I was really surprised when I picked up a packet in Super-drug at its cost, less than £6! A beauty bargain! There were 3 colours available all resulting in light brown/blonde colours. Having naturally very dark hair I picked up Kit No1 for darker hair. I couldn’t wait to… Read More →
So ladies, This is the second time I have detoxed this year thanks to the lovely people at “Juice2u.” As you will know, i reviewed their 3 day detox last time and had great results! You can read that review here! However, this time, it’s the 5 day one as opposed to the 3 day one. Scary was my first initial thought! 5 Days without food was a little daunting, but I have to say it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. It almost became routine. Prior to this detox, I had really been working on building muscle and stripping fat, so I wasn’t expecting a huge weight loss as my muscle mass was a lot higher… Read More →
Vogue magazine has taken the bold step in revealing all the time and effort taken, that goes into those glossy images of those ‘super natural’ women gracing the front of magazines, in a tell all video aimed at teenage girls and young women. Having been a young teenager that suffered with body image, it really is about time something was done to educate young women, and prove that even they models on the front of these magazines, don’t even look like that! Vogue have revealed that, It takes a team of 20 professionals and up to three hours of work to make a supermodel look good enough for a photo shoot. British Vogue filmed one of its photo shoots to… Read More →
Hi Gorgeous ladies! So in these past few months after settling into a job and auditions and quitting the waitress job that was taking over my life, I’ve recently rekindled my love for the gym. I’m a bit like a mad woman on a mission and after the “Juice2u” detox I recently reviewed, I was asked about what kind of supplements could keep you in Shape. I received a few emails about various weight loss pills that some of our girls wanted me to try and review for them, but being a big believer in that the only healthy way to loose weight and keep it off, is to eat healthily and exercise I didn’t want to fund placebo weight… Read More →
Hey ladies! Continuing with the theme of finding things around the kitchen to make yourself feel better, this week, i put cling film to the test! Who needs those expensive body wraps when you have cling film right? The idea is simple. Wrap yourself from head to foot in cling film, go to sleep in it and wake up feeling like a slinky supermodel. Easy right? Well…In theory maybe. Please ignore the gross granny underwear in the video. Its not supposed to be sexy 😛 I did not sleep well and to put it nicely it made me a sweaty mess. I woke up super thirsty too, naturally as all you are doing is getting rid of your body’s toxins… Read More →
Its summer. We haven’t been as strict as we had hoped the few weeks leading up to the holiday. It happens. Two men in my life are to blame. Ben and Jerry. It’s the week before your holiday that youv’e been looking forward to since your last and you have a panic on. Oh crap… DETOXING! Its a word dreaded by many and the thought of eating nothing for a certain amount of time is pretty daunting. After being asked and questioned about different methods of detoxing, by women who shared my pre holiday panic, I did a little research. Now I am not someone who condones not eating! I love food. But after researching some of the benefits of… Read More →

Gorgeous Ladies! So last week I was off on my jollies with my two gorgeous girlfriends to Turkey! We had An amazing time! Its a beautifully breath taking country and the people can not accommodate you well enough! I met so many gorgeous and inspiring people with amazing stories 🙂 it was one of the most beautiful and relaxing holidays I’ve been on 🙂 That aside, lets get down to this weeks trial. It’s that time of year where you’ve worked hard to get your bikini body (or not if your me. I like chocolate too much ) You have the cream, the lotions, the shoes, hats, dresses… But one thing that always bothers me is makeup. A few emails have come… Read More →
Hey beautiful ladies! Firstly I would like to apologise for the quality of the video this week. The camera I used was rather pants but I captured the footage all the same 🙂 I hope its not too much of an issue 🙂 Boring bits over and now back to the most exciting thing ever! Cabbage! Exciting right!? The Cabbage soup diet! It promises to make you loose around 10lbs in one week. I started the week skeptical as ever, as you would. How can you possibly loose that much weight in one week without starving yourself? As always I will give you an honest and open account of the Guinea pig trials, trying and testing things, so you don’t have to. The diet… Read More →
