So, which A/W16 beauty trend are you currently coveting? When you get to a certain age you pretty much know what suits you and what doesn’t, the flipside being that it can be really, REALLY hard to break out of your standard look and try something new – I should know, beauty editors are the worst and least adventurous with make-up of all the people I know.
Any new parent will tell you that bathtime is sacred. You stare in wonderment at the tiny naked being you’ve created while simultaneously trying not to drop/drown them – it’s both the most magical and terrifying time of the first six months.
One of the questions I get asked most as a beauty editor has to be ‘where can I get a decent facial that won’t flare up my skin?’. While I can’t comment confidently for outside the M25, London is my stomping ground after all, I have been lucky enough to sample some of the finest facials this fair city has to offer − from understated back rooms in therapists’ houses, to the full on finery of our capital’s most decadent spa hotels.
As regular readers have probably already have gathered, I’m 35 weeks pregnant and reckon I’ve read more books in this concentrated period of time that I ever did at school or university put together. I have quite a bookish character, plus I’m a writer, so I guess it’s my natural response to want to ‘study’ pregnancy and parenting in written form.
