What Something Purty Wore This Weekend…

Actually that’s a big fat fib. This weekend, I didn’t try any of the stuff I’m about to rattle through in this (ahem) Monday morning round-up but I have (I promise) used it all at some point over the past few weeks…in some cases (take a bow, Bourjois) obsessively so and in others (stand up … Continue reading

Previously on Something Purty…remember that post about the swoopy-fringed ‘do at Rodarte? To be fair they’re not coming thick and fast right now so you won’t have to think back too far. Friday maybe? Anyhow, that hair…rumpled handfuls of the stuff, all thick, healthy and Virgin Suicide-like, untreated and undone. Here it is again, in … Continue reading

I went to a party this weekend. And an after-party, and an after-after-party. All told, that’s around 48 hours of bad behaviour yet somehow I looked fresher when I fell through the front door on Sunday night than when I’d skipped out of it on Friday afternoon.

First into wedges taken from around your head in a kind of pie chart (like the cheeses in a … Continue reading

Comfort was this weekend’s watchword. Not so much the complexion kind (though that one’s likely to run and run as I continue to battle with my weather-ravaged face…more of that on Friday) but the soul-soothing sort. I’d like to add that I don’t actually theme my weekends in the way of a Sophie Dahl cookery … Continue reading

This morning’s post is held together with a great deal of self-pity, a couple of care packages and big dab of shea butter, so best not to look too closely as it’s liable to collapse at any second. Yup, Something Purty has been in the wars this weekend, and were it not for the following, … Continue reading

Which of these makes me less of a beauty editor…cycling 55km to Kent and back in unfashionable trainers and ten year old jogging pants, or sinking a bottle of Rioja, a pumpkin risotto and an apple crumble in the pub afterwards? Whatever, I have a chapped face to show for it, and while the Rioja … Continue reading
