Mini Blog, Micro Trend (or you never bring me flowers)…

Did I say micro? Think teeny-tiny, a mere speck of a trend, barely visible in fact. But c’mon, it’s peonies! And who doesn’t love a peony! Bobbi Brown does, see…* This is the limited edition Peony & Python Palette (£38) from the new Tibi collaboration, and a beautiful thing it is too, with a couple … Continue reading

Friday Post…Pick Up A Palette

God, but make-up palettes used to be boring, didn’t they? Yet right now I have at least four or five of the latest limited editions up and running in my make-up trunk (yes I said trunk, what did you expect?), each more beautiful and (here’s the kicker) more wearable than the last – the kind … Continue reading

Treat Of The Week…

There’s a lot of love for Bobbi Brown on these pages. So much so that I’ve stopped alerting the PR office to any mentions – it’s getting a bit embarrassing.

Treat Of The Week!

At the risk of cannibalising a couple of posts I’m sitting on, I must tell you, this very instant, that you are nothing this Christmas…and I mean nothing…without Bobbi Brown Glitter Eyeliner in Gold (£14.50) and Metallic Lip Color in Jewel Red (£15.50). In fact, I feel so strongly about this that I have cut … Continue reading

Friday Post: Come Fly With Me

  (Or How To Be The Burberry Girl) So hands up who doesn’t want to be the Burberry Girl? Of course you do – and if it’s not the belted and buckled outerwear that’s reeling you in (it’s all about the coats, bags and boots, says designer Christopher Bailey) then it’s her air of cool … Continue reading
