Lippy Girl Makeup was founded by Darcey Diehl, a working mother from Vancouver BC.  After her 1st pregnancy, Darcey began to evaluate the foods she consumed, becoming a think-a-tarian and watching carefully what she put in her body.  During her second pregnancy Darcey extended this to what she put on her body, and began to investigate the cosmetic products available to her.  Frustrated with the limited availability of products which are organic, animal friendly and earth friendly, Darcey launched Lippy Cosmetics. Established on the core values of Trust, Respect and Integrity, and representing ‘makeup not madness’, Lippy Girl has a vision to be more than just a makeup company, more a makeup movement.   [click to continue…]

A while back, I had an absolutely terrifying beautician. She was Russian, she told me off all the time and she’d over-pluck my eyebrows without asking. I hated her. Why did I keep using her? I was too scared not to.

Zk’in organic skincare is just beautiful. I’ve been trialling it for a couple of weeks now, and it’s special: from the tailor-made, expertly thought-out organic ingredients, through to the packaging to the fact that it’s extremely high performing.

Self-love is seriously lacking these days. It’s like a constant whirlwind of guilt that we’re not doing enough for others, guilt that we’re not putting enough effort in at work, guilt that we haven’t liked back that random man in India’s photo on Instagram…

Jason Gluten Free Body Wash

September 19, 2014

After at least a decade of stomach and digestion problems which regular doctors don’t seem to be have a clue about, I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands. I’ve just gone gluten-free and have been dairy-free for some time now, and in the 2 weeks that I’ve made the changes, there has been [...]

Big. Small. That’s how we describe our breasts. Not ‘Squidgy’ ‘Spongey’or, as actress Jorgie Porter amusing called hers, ‘Doughy’.

Burt’s Bees Shampoo: My Search for Sulphate-free Shampoo is over!

My skincare is nearly 100% natural and organic: when make up artists now use non-organic, non-natural products, no matter how pricey, I feel like I can feel it. You know? It feels drying, tingly, sensitive and makes my skin extra oily. Plus it doesn’t feel compatible with my ethics, knowing that it’s full of chemicals [...]

I was recently lucky enough to go on two holidays: a week in Skiathos with my boyfriend, and four days in Croatia for my model buddy Karla’s wedding. I wanted to pack light both times: as nice as it must be to have a full make up kit, perfume, entire beauty regime as well as [...]

The Collective UK: No Bull, this is Delicious!

In my opinion, yogurt is one of the all time superfoods. No it’s not found in a remote part of the Amazon, it’s certainly not extortionately expensive, and no it’s not packed with 100 X more vitamins than an orange…but the humble yogurt is a true staple in my life.

I don’t know about you, but my relationship with my boobs has a chequered past. I remember sitting in the back of the car on the way to school, planning the boob job I would get when I was legally allowed to at 16. I wouldn’t get any old boobs – they would be mammoth [...]

Boost your stressed body with Naturya Powders

The annoying thing about modelling is that, when you’re quiet, you have a lot of spare time. This means that I can gym every day, I can eat the way I want, and I can sleep 8 hours a night. That means that I’m walking around with a rarely-seen flat tum, plumped and rested skin, [...]

French skin care brand Sisley, loved by many despite it’s eye wateringly expensive price range, have an age minimizing moisturizer with SPF 30 in their stable of sun care products, and I’ve been testing it. The blurb states: “A UVA+UVB filtering complex, reinforced with light-reflecting micro-spheres, stops 90% of radiation, letting in just the right [...]

Transform your Body with Reformer Pilates at The Klinik

I’ve always been really scared of reformer Pilates, for some reason. Perhaps it’s the fact that it looks a bit like a Medieval torture device.  I’ve heard it’s pretty pricey, too. If I’m really honest though, I was also trepidatious because it works. And if it works, it means it must be really, really hard [...]

Argan oil is a really popular ingredient in lots of beauty products today – well-known for ensuring shiny hair and well-moisturised skin. The trouble is, many of these products use only a tiny amount of the actual oil, or process and perfume it the point that a lot of the precious elements of argan oil [...]

Every now and then, I’ll gaze wistfully at the range of milkshakes and other sweet drinks on offer in the corner shop. I remember the days when I’d be able to gulp them down the sweet, gloopy, decadent drinks with not a care in the world for sugar or environmentally harmful dairy production….or dimpling on [...]

Not being vain, but I’ve always had lovely soft skin on my arms. It’s remarked upon by people enough for me to think it’s especially soft, and to be fair, I do take good care of it, exfoliating with Naturally Made For You’s Coconut Soufflé Exfoliator in with Grapefruit and Lime (£14), which leaves a lovely [...]

Arm Yourself with Knowledge in the Fight Against Skin Damage

I’ve never had one of those skincare analyses before. You know the ones from articles where a beauty editor marches in confidently, bolstered by owning a cosmetics cabinet worth thousands…and comes out quivering, sobbing gently about sun damage and having a skin age two years over her (fake) age (we’ve all lied about our age, [...]
