I confess, I'm a complete skincare addict - but only to one brand and with very good reason! I'm also a supplement and superfood addict. I get very excited about the possibilities of how they'll help to support good health, skin health and 'getting the glow'. I doubt I will ever stop getting excited at any of these things.
Beauty advertisers are forever selling products to empower women; we need this lipstick because "we're worth it", and if we buy this mascara we're making a statement. But with beauty advertisers using make-up as a means of empowerment, the question is - are we as women still being defined by traditional ideas of femininity?
There's no point showcasing your best Christmas party outfit, only to feel let down by your complexion. The more parties you attend, the more you drink, the less sleep you have and the more lacklustre the skin becomes, unless you're savvy and have a few tricks up your sleeve.
The resort has just 50 rooms and six garden villas in a former late-19th-century mansion surrounded by gardens and woodland, with commanding views. Ask for a river view room, or a terrace. The décor is an uber-stylish mix of country retreat meets streamlined modern, all in soft sage, slate grey and fawn.
On a crisp November Friday evening, I had the pleasure of visiting the jaw-dropping decadence of the Victoria and Albert Museum to see their new monthly event, Fashion in Motion.

Yesterday, an 19-year old girl who is young, attractive and popular on Instagram, Snapchat and all the usual suspects "quit" her job as a social media personality after fearing she was drowning in the fraudulent life she had created for herself online.
I'm a man, and I wear makeup. Why you ask, because it makes me feel good, complete, confident and ready to take on the world! I started experimenting with makeup around the age of 19 when I began having terrible acne breakouts...
Everyone knows that accessories can transform an outfit, so why not apply the same logic when it comes to Halloween? It plays well for those who aren't into going all out but want to join in a bit on the dressing up front, but it doesn't even mean you can't go in character either. Some celebrities' accessories are their calling card, you just have to put a bit of thought into your outfit.
Youthful energy is a core component in advertising and beauty. In the example of J Lo and Cameron Diaz, there is a playfulness about these women. They seem like they have fun and enjoy life. It's a sense of innocence, wonder, and curiosity that makes them radiant.
did the big chop about three years ago, and I did so not because of any social trend, or to be in touch with my roots but rather because I became aware of the dangerous side effects. And I can tell you today, I do not feel anymore Ghanaian today than I did on that day because, as my girl India Arie sings beautifully, I am not my hair.
Hair loses its lustre and robustness as we age. It is part of the natural biological cycle of humans. However, smoking can accelerate the aging process, which could most likely lead to early balding in both men and women.
Days don't come more grey than this particular Monday. Torrential rain. Chilly breeze. Chaos on the roads. Abandoned umbrellas strewn along the paveme...
The issue surrounding Ashley VanPevenage struck another nerve in me when it comes to how society views and deals with acne. For those of you who don't know, Ashley VanPevenage put out a photo of her skin before and after make up, revealing her bad skin.
Facegym makes your face glow by literally working out the face. The best bit is you don't have to move a muscle with their wonderfully trained therapists doing the hard work for you!
Your late thirties are a funny time of life. Not least of all with the social pressure to have a fantastic relationship, an established career and the same body you took for granted in your twenties. Whilst, undoubtedly, your thirties are still relatively young compared to what they used to be considered, it's still less the decade of decadence and more the decade of maintenance.
