As my current mascara came to the end of its life last week and I went to replace it, I thought I would try something new and look at all the killer budget buys currently on the market. If you don't know, you are meant to replace your mascara every 3 months due to hygiene, whether your mascara is running out or not, as daily use can create a build up of bacteria in the tube. Below I have picked out some of the budget Mascara from Notino whom I have been collaborating with, that I have tried at home, and described my favourites.

In my search for fabulous skin I have decided to test out the french brand La Roche-Posay, a dermo-cosmetics brand which is famed for its collaborations with dermatologists in its commitment to helping improve the lives of people with sensitive skin. I picked up a few pieces of La Roche-Posay from Notino to test out and slot into my daily skincare regime to try and help my own skin. 

I tried La Roche-Posay Effaclar K, which is a refreshing mattifying cream specifically for oily and problematic Skin. This is an anti-sebum cream that helps stop the pro...

During these difficult times of self-isolation, social distancing and store closures across the globe, like many people, I have found it difficult to stock up on basic skincare and chemist items that we all used to take for granted. I personally had a look online for some essentials recently, and luckily managed to grab some items that I was in need of from Notino, one of my favourite online cosmetic stores. I thought I would tell you all about it as I know many people are also struggling, to help you if you are in need of purchasing essential items...

In a world of COVID19, social distancing and mounting deaths, looking forward to June's London Fashion Week Men's seems a little odd, however yesterday a little press email entered my inbox, and I thought I should discuss it with you all.

The British Fashion Council has announced that for the next twelve months all London Fashion Weeks will merge womenswear and menswear into one gender neutral platform, to allow designers greater flexibility. Now this is something people have been calling out for in the last few season, and in my mind, I think it is...

Back in January I attended London Fashion Week Mens, and I got to have a sneak peak at all the new male trends for Autumn and Winter 2020. I know we may only just be stepping into spring, but it's good to look at the emerging trends and next seasons fashions just before they hit the stores and are seen on street-style stars across the city. Below are some of my designers to know, with their new on trend collections.

Eyebrows have been a big trend in makeup now for many years, and they are known for helping to enhance your makeup and your face shape. Having good brows helps make you look groomed and polished and it really can enhance your natural beauty and your face shape, as well as framing your eyes, which to some are known as the window to your souls!

Before many parts of the world went into lockdown due to COVID19, I did a little shop at Notino to test out a few new eyebrow makeup products as the one I was currently using had been discontinued (don't you jus...

Can you believe that before this month I had never tried NYX cosmetics? When I mentioned it to my group of friends they were all shocked. I am a big make-up fan, and they didn't understand why I had not tried the famed brand. It's simply because I haven't got around to it yet, and as Valentines Day approached, and I was attempting some new makeup looks to mark the occasion, I thought I would dip into the brand, and see what made it so popular. 

I purchased my NYX products from Notino, and as soon as my fancy parcel was delivered I dived in and had a...

Most of you know by now, that for this season of London Fashion Week I have decided to take a step back, and I will not be attending, which will be the first time I have been absent from a Fashion Week in London in 5 years, gosh how time flies! My absence is mainly for personal reasons, and for the fact I need to ground and refocus my work and energy, skipping any drama's and the fashion week stress. Now I must admit, I will miss the fashion week fun and fabulousness that usually occurs, and naturally I don't want to miss out, so I have decided to d...

Following the manic and very exhausting Christmas period, January can feel very dull, depressive and often difficult for many people. They call it the January Blues, and currently, I feel like I am suffering myself. At times like this, like many people, I often reach for the TV remote, to snuggle on the sofa, relax and recoup. One way that I relax within my home is by using fabulous Scented Candles and home fragrance. 

I adore candles and home fragrance products, and I am relying on them for comfort, ambience and to inject a little happiness into my...

I don't know why they call men's fashion week a week, as it's definitely not a week long, more of a long weekend really, but alas, another one has arrived and left us in a blink of an eye. I am calling this season of London Fashion Week Men's the season of Uooyaa, for no other reason than because its all I wore throughout the shows, plus a few added accessories of course! 

Uooyaa is a premium Chinese streetwear brand, which was founded by Jinxia Yin, who launched the brand after he left his post as vice president of the once unrivalled Chinese fashio...
