It's pitch dark, and we're driving through a tiny Irish village best known for its ancient Christian heritage and fishing - not for luxury spa hotels. And yet as our friendly chauffeur, Sean, turns past the beach, windswept and foreboding on a dark January night, we approach the Cliff House Hotel...
While red carpet glitz and glamour is achieved by fabulous stylists and make-up artists, fresh, glowing skin is definitely the best accessory- and you don't need a celebrity budget to look good.
We all envy that girl who can pull off the bare faced look; that natural beauty who steps out of the door with shiny, bright eyes and long, glossy locks. But you are that girl. You are that natural beauty and you can ditch your make-up and look great bare faced.
Exciting news just in from Humane Society International's Be Cruelty-Free campaign team in Brazil, where the State of São Paulo has just introduced Latin America's first ever ban on animal testing for cosmetics.
The reality is that American Apparel sticking pubic hair on its mannequins probably won't increase lingerie sales, but will it give them publicity? Get people talking? Of course it will, it already has, as this post proves. People want to talk about this, out of shock, out of amusement, whatever the reason, emotion is evoked.
I then uncovered the ugly truth about the beauty industry - animals are indeed still being tested on and going through extreme pain and cruelty - all for a new mascara or shampoo! What really angers me is that there's no need - we can undertake tests on reconstructed human skin, like EpiDerm, which is now widely available and produces better, more accurate results.

I like the thought of New Year's resolutions, I think it gives us a great goal to be a better "you" in the New Year. Most of us have the usual goals s...
Attempts by married men to entice you into their adulterous ways is a little like sitting in the cheap seats and watching events on stage unfold quickly in a bad Scandinavian melodrama. There's an unerring emotional pitch, and an intensity that veers from hysterical, to extra-hysterical.
'I've had a thatch done and I didn't even need it. That's the weirdest thing. I had three months off and got bored.' A bizarre yet telling comment in my opinion however not the first we have heard from Robbie Williams - and I'm sure it will not be the last.
Christmas and New Year are party season, but if like me you've sent Santa a rather large cheque this year, you may be feeling the pinch. Here are some budget tips to try and help get you through the party season looking your absolute best.
Flick through any magazine, TV station or website this Christmas and the messages are mostly about perfection. How to get the perfect skin, body, clothes, relationship... life. But underlying all of it is that your life isn't good enough, you're not good enough.
