Makeup for a European vacation

Bobbi Brown Telluride Collection

Bobbi Brown Telluride eye palette

There is just something so alluring about Bobbi Brown products.  The sleek black packaging, the gorgeous palettes of perfectly matched eyeshadows, the large selection of lipsticks, through to the beautifully soft makeup brushes.  I could spend hours playing with the testers at their counters. I have had a love affair with Bobbi Brown products for […]

Friends, beauty and fashion at Rundle Place

Emily’s makeup for the Fringe–Part 1

I love being a Mum.  Especially when I can use my daughter as one of my models!! It was not too long ago that Emily wouldn’t let me anywhere near her to help with her makeup or hair, but now she says ‘you know you are doing my makeup and hair tonight don’t you?’!! It […]

Breast Cancer awareness month – GIVEAWAY

With one in eight women being affected by Breast Cancer it is hardly surprising that it is rare to find someone who hasn’t been affected either themselves or knows someone who has been touched by this disease. My Mum is a breast cancer survivor and even though we had another scare this year we are […]

Stage makeup

I am a stage Mum.  No, not one of those horrible pushy mothers who force their children to perform from an early age and dress them in glitter and tutu’s from the age of 2. I am a proud Mum with a very talented daughter who got the lead in ‘Rockin’ Snow White’ which was […]
