Going for the Chop

I've always loved the idea of long hair, but the truth (which it's taken me a long time to accept) is that it doesn't love me, and so a few months ago I went for 'the chop'. And this time, for the first time, I'm not looking back...…

What We *Really* Want for Christmas…

Do you know what we really, really wish for this Christmas? A Chanel 2.55 bag, perhaps? Or a lifetime’s supply of cashmere? Perhaps a ginormous Net-a-Porter gift card or a suite for the weekend at a swanky hotel? Nope. (Although if anyone does want to get us any of these, do please feel free, you are more than welcome and we will be more than grateful.) What we really want is: more – and better – sleep. To stop stressing. To properly relax (not just pretend to whilst flicking through our phone and our mental to-do list. To enter the new year refreshed, relaxed and – why not? – merry and bright.

Stop the search: This cream really works…

I first spotted this cream on Red magazine's Beauty Editor-at-Large Rosie Green's Instagram feed. For a beauty guru like Rosie to rave about a cream, it has to be good, so I was instantly intrigued. Good skin is priceless - nothing can make you look older/tireder/worse than a poor complexion, and equally, glowing skin can give you an almost ageless quality. Who needs expensive clothes if your face is in good shape? And this really lives up to the hype...…
