Mirror mirror on the wall…

We love a good beauty gadget, and Shiseido’s Magic Mirror is definitely one of the best. It’s an ingenious invention that allows you to try a number of beauty looks without having your makeup constantly reapplied, plus you get to choose your look rather than leaving it up to the makeup artist.

Spring is here! Well almost… it’s certainly warmer and I do believe I spotted some sunlight this week, and that’s enough to make me start thinking about floaty dresses and maxi skirts.

On trial: Rodial Boob Job

We love a challenge at House of Fraser Towers, and when we heard that those clever folk at Rodial had created a miracle in a bottle we thought we’d better put it to the test. It has already caused a sensation in the media, and sold out instantly. Boob Job by Rodial costs £127 per...
My new obsession… False eyelashes

My new obsession… False eyelashes

I have always dreamed of being able to flutter my eyelashes in a coquettish manner to attract a new beau.
