Posted by in Beauty Reviews, sponsors

*a Nuffnang Sponsored post* I’m an eternal sceptic when it comes to beauty products. My work as a hair and makeup artist means that I am constantly on the look out for great finds that actually work. I have very high expectations of product claims, so when asked to test the new Garnier Perfect Blur, I was intrigued. Working as a...

I Miss My Long Hair!

Apr 03, 14 I Miss My Long Hair!

Posted by in Hair

Did you know you can follow my blog with Bloglovin? Going through old photos for #Remember this month, and I REALLY, REALLY, miss my long hair! I know, I made the decision to cut it off so short, and that is because I wanted to experiment with more authentic 50′s sets. But now I’m bored again and I miss the versatility...

Mar 18, 14 Chi Chi Matt Lipstick in Drama Queen Product Review

Posted by in Beauty Reviews

Yes, I am a red lipstick addict, but I’ve been trying to mix it up much more of late and including a lot more pinks. Not matter which shade I choose I always go for the strongest hit and those that last well. I have been super happy with my Chi Chi Trolley Dolly lipstick so I thought I’d give their matt lipsticks a go....

Mar 11, 14 A Question of Style. 12 months of Selfies.

Posted by in #Re2014, Beauty, Fashion

Sometimes I get so tired of looking at myself. That feeling when you look in the wardrobe and you’ve seen it all before. When I put on my makeup and just think, “ho hum..” I’ve been feeling that seasonal style malaise again this last month, coming on like clockwork as it does each year. I suppose that is one...

Feb 21, 14 The cultural myth of Age Appropriate

Posted by in Beauty Advice & Tips, Hair

My fabulous new Long Curly Wig – in amazing Taro Purple ! I am not defined by my age. And I tell you what, that’s jolly lucky too or I’d have given up a while back. There is nothing so liberating to me as the pure joy and privilege, that comes from being able to create my own sense of self living here in...

SKM Says – Sunscreens and Lipsticks

  In today’s SKM Says (yes, I’m back!) I answer the question about how I protect my skin from the sun, as well as my new favourite Christmas lipsticks. P.S. sorry the background music is a little loud; I was going for cheerful but I think it may be a bit much....

There is absolutely no point in pretending that this dress doesn’t bring out the poser in me. When you have an outfit this fabulous there is no way you can hang around looking nonchalant and casual, it just doesn’t let you. With Summer just around the corner, I got all excited and started doing my seasonal shopping...

Oct 30, 13 Daily Outfit – Peek a Boo Pin Up

Posted by in daily outfit, Hair, shopping

    There are some things you just can’t get enough of; and vintage styled leopard print is my weakness. Over the weekend I picked up this gorgeous Peek-A-Boo top from Powder Puff Boutique to add to my collection. I’d already bought the same top last winter in a baby pink lurex fabric and just loved it! This...

Oct 14, 13 A Simple 1920s Makeup Tutorial

Posted by in 1920, Makeup, Tutorials-Video

I’ve had a whole lot of requests for a wearable, or daytime, 1920s makeup look. This question raises a whole lot of issues about what is considered a “daytime look” for the 1920′s. The answer varies hugely depending on which country and which social demographic you’re looking at for an answer....

Oct 09, 13 Treasure of the Week – Vintage Curlers

Posted by in Hair, Vintage Shopping

Do you remember ever having your hair set with vintage curlers by mum? Oh the nostalgia that can be found in one little box… It doesn’t take much to make me happy. Even though I do love champagne and caviar, it’s often the little treasures uncovered that give me the hit of joy I need. Yes, to so many they’d...
