PARLANCE BY NICK SMITH

Taking place at London’s Lawrence Alkin Gallery, Parlance is a solo show by conceptual artist Nick Smith. This is Nick’s third show at the gallery with previous shows completely selling out. Parlance is an evolution from previous bodies of work as Smith breaks away from square and rectangular works to circular and experimental pieces on different canvases. The show focuses on iconic artists and celebrities and how they are portrayed in the media. Images are interspersed with text in the style of the classic Pantone colour chip, creating a narrative relative to the subject. PARLANCE runs from Friday 3rd March to Saturday 1st April at Lawrence Alkin Gallery.

Real Techniques Launch Sponge Collection Plus Win Your Own Set

Real Techniques sponges

Over the past year or so I have become converted to using a sponge to apply my make-up. Not only do I use a sponge to apply my foundation but also for blush, contour and highlight. Real Techniques by Pixiwoos miracle complexion sponge or ‘the orange one’ as I call it, is a firm favourite and I am excited to share that they are now launching a whole new range of sponges. The sponges cover everything you could need, from body blending to face cleansing. Whatever you need a beauty sponge for you are covered in this collection.

I’ve got an exclusive first peek at the new launch to share with you, so let’s delve right in.

Trying Dolce & Gabbana Make-Up

Dolce & Gabbana makeup review

Did you know Dolce & Gabbana had a beauty range? You’d be forgiven for not knowing that they did as it’s quite under the radar I think. Dolce & Gabbana have had a make-up range for numerous years but it’s one I’ve never actually tried. It wasn’t until I was in Sephora in Barcelona in January and I saw it, that it sparked my interest again. At the moment Dolce & Gabbana make-up is only available in the UK in London in Harrods so it’s definitely on the more exclusive end of the beauty scale. If your outside of the UK, try Sephora stores and in the States SAKS and Nordstrom. Read More »

Spring Fashion You Can Buy (& Wear) Now

Spring Fashion 2017 transitional pieces

We are well and truly into February and even though it’s still pretty bitter cold outside, I can’t help but want to ditch all my jumpers for something lighter, floral and bright and pray for warmer weather soon. Luckily I have a bit of an excuse as I’m going on holiday to L.A next month and have been browsing the shops for some new Spring pieces.

I’ve managed to find some pieces that you can actually wear now, given a layer tor two, but will last you well into Spring and inject a little colour and light relief into your wardrobe. Read More »

Nip & Fab Skin Shots

Nip & Fab shots review

One of the best drugstore skincare brands I have tried is without a doubt Nip & Fab. I have featured them many times on the blog with some of my favourites being the Nip & Fab glycolic fix range and also the Nip & Fab dragon’s blood hydration boost shot. Which brings me nicely onto these, joining the hydration shot is four new skincare shots. Shot? I hear you say, yep these are quick boost to the skin and each one has been introduced from one of their ranges to exfoliate, repair, soften and smooth. Each shot is a serum consistency that a few drops can be added to your regular moisturiser or worn alone on the face as more of a targeted concentrate. So let me introduce you to the new shots in the collection. Read More »
