Nude tights

A while back, Grazia announced that nude/ natural tights were firmly back in fashion - Carla Bruni and Sarah Jessica Parker had both been seen rocking the look. Nude tights are not only great for those who want to hide any slight blemishes on their legs but are also a must for those subject to a professional/ corporate business code.

Essential Skincare - Face Masks

I am often asked to recommend beauty products to friends so thought I would publish a series of posts on the products I use on a regular basis. In this series, I will cover skincare (facial and body), hair and make-up. This week: face masks.

Whatever your skin type, you should do a weekly mask. I do a deep-cleansing mask every week (usually on Sunday) and then, every now and then, I'll do a hydrating mask. It doesn't have to be a massive task or take up loads of time: I run a bath while I wash my face, then I hop in the bath with the mask on. This way, the steam from the bath helps to open up my pores and by the time I'm done, the mask has worked its magic! If I'm in a super pampering and multi-tasking mood, I'll have a hair mask on at the same time!! 

Origins do great masks; my two favourites are:
Origins Clear Improvement Mask
Origins Out of Trouble Mask

For the fashion world, 2011 is the year of the's all about colour popping this year, darlings!! One micro trend I've spotted is pink trousers!! Don't shy away - these can look pretty and seriously cool. Honestly!

Here are some I've seen around:
