October Beauty Picks

October 31, 2014

DHC Pore Cleansing Oil* I love love LOVE the concept of cleansing oils, but have always found them so awkward and frustrating to use – forever ending up with oil dripping down my arms and staining my sleeves. This new release from cult Korean skincare brand DHC has a thicker, richer consistency than those I’ve previously […]

French Pharmacy Favourites

October 29, 2014

The list of the things that the French do right is (in my opinion) infinite, ranging from breakfast to couture, street style to macarons, and architecture to (inevitably) beauty. ESPECIALLY re. skincare. Mid-priced and affordable, I truly believe that the French brands have the best products and formulas if you’re attempting to up your skincare game […]

V is for Volume

October 27, 2014

Volume is BIG (in more ways than one) in the beauty world these days. Every brand from the drugstore basics to our luxe high-end favourites offer a range of volume inducing products. Now, we all love being spoilt for choice, but we also want to cut to the chase, find the products that work of us, and settle down […]

Weekend Ritual #7

October 26, 2014

Sunday will begin as all Sundays should, with a Pinterest party in bed (join me here), copious amounts of coffee, and some serious testing of the latest beauty launches to land on my desk. That’s what that extra hour is for right? Winter beauty launches have been falling left, right, and centre this week, and […]

Skincare Tips and Advice

October 24, 2014

Earlier this week I shared my advice for building a skincare routine – detailing the types of products that I use on a daily basis, and when and how I do so. I’ll save the full story for another day, but will suffice to say that my skin and I have been through a lot of […]

Desktop Beauty

October 22, 2014

A few weeks ago I detailed the products that I keep to hand on my bedside table, today’s post takes us to another room in the flat – the study. For me, beauty always goes beyond the bathroom/dressing table, and I’ll hazard a guess that I’m not the only one to have a different hand […]

Building a Skincare Routine

October 20, 2014

Daily skincare maintenance may seem like an obvious step to some, but in my experience a lot of people are unaware of either the importance of a thorough and regular routine, or of the steps which need to be undertaken to ensure healthy and happy skin. Skin is not only our largest organ but also […]

Weekend Ritual #6

October 19, 2014

Today’s WEEKEND RITUAL is a bumper beauty edition feat. all of the paraphernalia essential to a day of zen. It’s time to zone into the weekend in true TGG style… I’ll be starting my day off with a long laze under the duvet. I have a stack of magazines to delve into so I plan […]

Recipe: The Best Gooey Chocolate Brownies

October 17, 2014

Brownies are my favourite type of sweet-treat but I very rarely eat them when I’m out – in fear of bumping into Type 1 (see below). Call me a brownie-snob, but I’d rather go hungry than ruin my day with a disappointing brownie  – an experience which always ends up in my hurrying home to bake up a […]

Stop Then Shop: Bumble & bumble

October 15, 2014

Whilst skincare will always be my ‘thing‘, in recent months I’ve been making a conscious effort to show the same amount of care, dedication, and interest to the products I use on my hair. Like our skin, we have our hair for life and when things go wrong it doesn’t look good – so we really ought to show it […]
