  • Turban or not Turban?

    Turban or not Turban?

    The BeautyMART office is divided when it comes to turbans. Some of us (Millie) love a turban and even got married wearing one (see pic below), although it was to cover up a bad dye job.

  • The Scented Garden

    The Scented Garden

    Crabtree & Evelyn's Botanical Studio Garden at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show proved that the English garden still informs our taste in fragrance.                                 Crabtree & Evelyn have always been inspired by gardens. Their namesake John Evelyn was a plantsman and gardener and the company's modern day ethos brings up to date the concept of the medieval still room, a place in every
  • Check Mates

    Check Mates

    With peak holiday season in sight, and the promise of some sun, it's time to step up the sunscreen and keep an eye - with a little help from close friends - on any suspicious looking moles.

  • 1995 Revisited: X-Girl Movie

    1995 Revisited: X-Girl Movie

    I just found this X-Girl film on Nowness and it reminded me of living in New York. It's also timely because it's about gender, fame, fashion, music and art - all contemporary themes - and it stars (and was co-written) by a heroine of mine, Chloe Sevigny. X-Girl was the Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth) founded sister label to skate clothing brand X-Large. Just thought I'd share!  
  • What I'm Using

    What I'm Using

    As a beauty journalist, especially one with her own shop, I constantly get asked which products I rate. When The Pool came to film me in my bathroom, talking through my morning routine, I was conscious that my beauty haul is very different to other peoples' in that I have a lot (and I mean hundreds) of products that I dip in and out of.

  • Keith Hall, Hairdresser 1921-2016

    Keith Hall, Hairdresser 1921-2016

    It's sad news that Keith Hall, the East Midlands hairdresser who pretty much invented the salon franchise and unisex salon models, has died, age 94.

  • Drink Yourself Younger with Anti-Agin

    Drink Yourself Younger with Anti-Agin

    Who knew that alcohol could make you younger? A newly launched gin called Anti Agin (clever...) created by food artists Bompass and Parr was commissioned by Warner Leisure Hotels and contains 90 grams of collagen and the kind of plant extracts you'd expect to find in your face serum including camomile, tea tree, nettle, witch hazel and gotu kola. I have never bought into the anti-ageing movement, but then I was never old before... and although I am partial to a spot of tequila and not much of a

    Champagne, couture, canapes; Kate, Kanye and Kim, and perhaps the best photo booth on the planet - it could only be the Vogue 100 party.

    A friend of mine, make-up artist Jillian Dempsey was visiting London recently so Anna and I caught up with her over lunch at Liberty Café. Jillian gave me some of her new products, Jillian Dempsey Kohl Liners and Lid Tints, and some of the bronze and copper shades are perfect for between seasons.

  • 'Zine Scene

    'Zine Scene

    The debate about the death of print publishing continues: newspapers close, editorial teams on magazines are decimated and circulations continue to decline. Yet, contrarily, there are more and more independent magazines on the newsstands and the 'zine scene is positively flourishing. Could it be that indie publishing may be the white knight of the magazine world?
