Valentine's Day

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!

To those who celebrate this holiday (?) I wish you lots of love, peace and joy. I personally like to celebrate Valentine’s Day by eating as much boxed chocolate as I can, adorning my nails with Valentine’s Day prettiness and playing with the girliest of girly makeup. And when it comes to beauty products, is there anything more girly than love hearts? I think not.

Here are my top picks for love heart inspired beauty.  Continue Reading

Regular nail polish coated acrylics seem to be a thing of the past these days. The ever expanding business of nail stylists, nail innovators and nail art blogs & bloggers, has inspired women all over the world to get creative with their digits. It was not too long ago that the only way to get intricate nail art on our own fingers was to seek out a delightful oriental nail spa in Chinatown where ladies with brilliant eyesight drew designs freehand. Now, things are becoming far more mainstream.

Some very exciting news came our way over the weekend. Worldwide beauty powerhouse, Sephora, have taken notice of this increasing beauty trend and decide to embrace it like a Jewish mother embraces a gay son (ok I am assuming that one, but I know I would like to have a gay son!). They have recruited British nail extraordinaire, Sophy Robson, to curate a massive collection of DIY nail art.

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
