Style Note: The Isabella Oliver Cape

Posted by London Darling

Yesterday was one of those cold and breezy days in London when you really need something warm and snug to wrap up in. And what better way to wrap up than in a cape. It's the perfect alternative to a winter coat. I received this beautiful one as a Christmas Gift from one of my favourite labels Isabella Oliver.

London Fashion Week Diary: BODYAMR

Posted by London Darling

The BODYAMR show was one that I was particularly looking forward to, and it was well worth the wait. The signature draping that I love still played a huge role in the collection as an abundance of luxe fabrics and beaded embellishment.

Beauty Buzz: Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare

Posted by London Darling

I recently changed my beauty regime to include the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, the Instant Boost Skin Tonic and Skin Repair Moisturiser. It's been just six days, and already I've seen a noticeable difference in the clarity of my complexion and the texture of my skin.

Liz Earle Skincare
For the past two weeks there's been something different about me... I've not worn mascara and Ive been applying very little eye makeup. Yet, random people have been telling me "You have beautiful eyes, pretty eyes.." and friends constantly ask "What mascara are you using, and where can I get it?"


Oh it's been fun keeping my girls guessing and the compliments from complete strangers have been amusing, but today, I'm finally going to reveal my secret to everyone: I'm wearing falsies!! "Nooooo! " said my facialist when I told her last week "I would never have guessed, they look so... real".

The ironic thing is that I swore I'd never give into the fake lash craze, but last year I was glued to the TV watching Cheryl Cole on X-Factor and I loved her lashes. Since then I've been curious and I just had to see what all the fuss is about. Now I see...

It's pretty impressive just how naturally WOW false eye lashes can look. They truly enhance your eyes, giving them a certain je ne sais quoi without looking OTT. I'm wearing Nouveau lashes - one of the best in the industry; I opted a natural look but there are dramatic options. Extensions were placed individually on top of my natural lashes with an adhesive that keeps the lashes bonded perfectly for at least two weeks. The false lashes fall out with the natural pattern of your real ones and with the right care, you won't have to worry about them falling out prematurely or damaging your natural lashes.


My lashes are still looking fabulous and it's just over a fortnight since I had the treatment. However, it is advisable to maintain the lashes every two-three weeks for optimum fullness.
Well, it's safe to say that I'm completely hooked! Nouveau lash extensions are available from £75 and maintenance costs around £40. Available London-wide.

  3. Ondo Lady Said,

    I have never tried false eyelashes as they seem a bit full on. Cheryl Cole does look really good in them though. For me as long as I have my mascara I am happy.


  4. Anonymous Said,

    can not wait to do my training next week.x
