Nipple, yes I said nipple.

Thursday, 28 February 2013

You may, or may not, remember me ending a recent blog post on the word Nipple...  Well, here is the explanation; Dr Lipp original nipple balm for lips. 

I can't go anywhere without a lip balm and I use them all year round. You can be sure to find them in my coat pockets, in my handbags, in my car, in my laptop case, and in just about any other place you could possibly put a lip balm. 

This little tube has become my beauty go-to. It was originally designed to sooth the nipples of nursing mothers, hence the name, but it's a real treat for your lips.

This lip balm is rich, and think, and just plain scrumptious. If you like heavy moisture then this is perfect. It's 100% natural and, for those like me, it's hypoallergenic. It doesn't have a colour or any fragrance but gives you a super shine. 

I love mixing it with my favourite lipsticks to give long lasting shine and colour. It helps to prolong my lipstick life and really seals in the moisture. Because there is no colour in the balm it doesn't alter the colour of your lipstick or add sparkle - it keeps your lip colour pure.  

I also love the simple retro packaging and, although the tube is small, it lasts pretty well. I can see why this little secret is a favourite for makeup artists.

You can pick this little beauty up for £11 from Specifics Skins. This is a great site for skincare, makeup and other luxury cosmetics. Currently, if you sign up to their news letter, they are offering you 5% discount.


Emilia Wickstead

Tuesday, 19 February 2013

As you all know London Fashion Week is in full swing. I have been following the shows via There have been some fantastic pieces from the usual big named designers - but the collection from Emilia Wickstead really caught my eye.

Emilia Wickstead is not a designer that I am too familiar with, but her elegant take on plaids and checks mixed with rich blues and soft pinks really caught my eye. There seems to be an element of classic style with a modern twist - yet still retaining a strong feminine influence.

There was a mix of bight inviting colours with more traditional florals, soft pinks, and earth tones.

Here are a few pictures from if you visit the site you can see the whole collection.
