I have used ghd’s for 10 years now so I was pretty excited when I received an email to be part of a summer 2014 hair trends shoot. I got to catch-up with my blogger pal Tara from the Style Rawr and meet Hannah of Hannah Louise Fashion who were the other bloggers involved. We got to see the 4… Read more →
I mentioned in my lfw aw14 highlight post that I went backstage at the Kristian Aadnevik show. MoroccanOil UK and Ireland Ambassador Errol Douglas showed me step-by-step how to recreate the late 70s, early 80s bohemian sweep curl. I thought it deserved a post of its very own. There is a visual ‘how to’ directly below, I will post Errol Douglas’s quotes at the… Read more →
I am not even going to attempt to do a ‘gift idea’s for the guys’ post. They are impossible to buy for. They don’t seem to want anything unless it is super expensive – video games, consoles, techie things etc etc. Anything beauty or sentimental related goes over their head. Obviously I am generalising here from experience. I have a… Read more →
So a couple of weeks ago I did something quite different. Boots No 7 invited seven international bloggers to London. They were to partake in various unusual beauty related activities. Lovely Gem from Jam PR sent me an email and asked if I would like to come and join them for the final activity – Laughing therapy and Yoga. I am always up for trying something new so the answer was of course, yes!
Check out the details and photos below – also some weird and wonderful local beauty secrets at the end of the post. Read more
I have to give a special mention to Police To Be Fragrance. I became one of the looks of the week on their style contest back in the summer so they sent over a perfume set. Not only that I only went on and won the whole bloody thing! You may have seen my excitement on the Memoir Mode Facebook Page.
Benefit is one of my absolute favourites for cosmetics, Benefit High Beam is part of my daily make-up routine and who doesn’t drink Diet Coke? so accepted gladly the invitation to go along to the Benefit & Diet Coke ‘Get Glam’ evening last night.

So this is my first ‘haul post’. I noticed other bloggers like to do this so not really an original idea for a post, but I have ordered and purchased some lovely things lately I just wanted to brag a little. I love Jones and Jones, I have collaborated with them before so they very kindly gave me a friends… Read more →
I have been dying to get semi permanent eyelashes for yonks and when Keynoir promoted a full set for £40, I had to take the offer up. Actually I almost didn’t get it done, the location of the salon was on Great Portland street and I got terribly lost. Even with GPS on my phone, I never was any good at orienteering… Read more →
I received all these lovely No 7 goodies right before Christmas and have used most of them on several occasions. I now feel I can give an honest tried and tested review on most of the products. One thing I have learned and wish I had done earlier, is use cleanser and toner. Yes it is quick and easy (and cheaper)… Read more →
