London Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week is barely over that it is already time for London Fashion Week to kick off. I received my BFC accreditation earlier this year and have since then managed to get my hands on a few invites, including a front row seat at PPQ and an invite to their after party!  If this wasn't exciting enough, I will also be helping Stylist Magazine cover the event for their website, stylist.co.uk. Oh, the perks of being an intern... Now if you'll excuse me, I have an outfit to put together.

Should I expect to see any of you there?

IMATS London 2012

Last Saturday I attended the International Make-up Artist Trade Show, most commonly known as IMATS, at the Alexandra Palace in London. Rachel and I thought we'd beat the crowd and go early, meaning that we managed to have a good look around the stalls and do a fair bit of shopping, before it got too hectic. We then headed to the press lounge where we were treated to an extensive brunch buffet, manicures and massages, courtesy of Royal & Langnickel. It might have been the first time I went to the famous make-up show, but it sure isn't the last. IMATS 2013 couldn't come soon enough!

PMD Personal Microderm Review


As you may remember from my Best of 2011 blog post, one of my (numerous) new year resolutions for 2012 is to take better care of my skin. Although I am pretty fortunate in that department and don’t suffer from severe acne, I have very dry skin, which can look incredibly dull during the Winter months. When I noticed some flakiness and breakouts around my chin and nose, right after Christmas, I knew it was time to take action. Enter the PMD Personal Microderm, « an at-home microdermabrasion device that uses Aluminum Oxide Crystals and a vacuum suction to smooth away dull and rough skin texture, soften fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and acne scars ».
To be honest, my first reaction was to go “too good to be true”. A professional microdermabrasion treatment costs around £100. I was pretty sure the PMD would not compare. Boy, was I wrong.
