Sleep, anyone?

Hello, we’re Natasha and Alex and we are obsessed with sleep. Show us a mother of small (or smallish) children who isn’t. I’ve yet to meet one. In fact, I’ve discussed at both a school drop-off and pick-up this week. We just – literally – cannot get enough; even if you are blessed with good sleepers, somehow you’re always left wanting more. Which is why we’re dedicating this week to the pursuit of sleep.…

5 of the best scrubs without microbeads

Rub-a-dub-dub, we love a good scrub (your skin really thanks you for it), but what we don't love are all those tiny little microbeads that pollute the seas and kill all the fish. Definitely not cool. So whilst many face and body scrubs do contain microbeads, many - very good ones, in fact - don't, which means that you can happily carry on exfoliating safe in the knowledge that you are one totally eco-friendly beauty queen. Here's our pick of the best...…

5 ways to get the glow

Now I'd love to say that looks don't matter. That it's what's on the inside that counts, which is all well and true, but there are times when I just wish my skin just looked a teensy bit better. Less 'gosh you look tired' and more 'I'll have what she's having!' which is why I've embarked on my own personal mission to Get A Glow. Or at least look a bit better and less like a stressed, grey person who Really Needs A Trip To The Maldives. And whilst I may still Really Need a Trip To The Maldives, I think I may have discovered some ways to get *that* glow...…

Sunday Riley: the cult brand your skin is going to love

Now, my skin isn’t so bad that I have to leave the house with a bag over my head, but let’s face it, it could do better. Less of the congestion, not-so-fine lines, dullness and dryness and we could have a much happier relationship. Which is why, after a winter of waking up feeling dry and looking, quite frankly, TERRIFYING in the morning, I decided that enough was enough, and headed in pursuit of one of the hottest cult skincare lines on the block: Sunday Riley….…

The fine-hair fix: 5 steps to better hair

Hello. My name is Alex and I’m the owner of Really Bad Hair. We’re talking fine. We’re talking fly-away. We’re talking prone to frizz. And, after several pregnancies (thanks hormones!) were talking regrowth, which likes to stand on end and wave ‘hello!’ just so everyone knows it’s there. But, finally (finally!) I’ve found a 5 step solution that seems to be helping……

How to….look good the morning after

So, we’ve got your night out covered, thanks to Natasha’s fab Christmas party wear post and even what to wear the morning after, but c’mon, what on earth are we going to do with that face? If you, like me, are more ‘hangover beast’ than ‘beauty’, then you’ll be needing some help. And whilst, we’re not advocating trowelling on a trolley load of make-up, we do have a few fail-safe products up our sleeves. Oh yes, these products will sort those drink-induced/sleep-deprived/new baby dark circles and make you look like a young Kate Moss even after a Kate Moss-style night out……
