By some miracle, we’ve actually had an extended period of warm weather here in the UK. Naturally, we Brits reach for a glass of anything alcoholic in such conditions, and any stigma around day drinking vanishes like the t-shirts of men who can’t withstand temperatures above 18ºC. My summertime tipple of choice is undoubtedly a gin and tonic; how handy then that on my doorstep is a gin bar well-stocked with some of the world’s most wonderful gins.
Any excuse to wear glitter and sparkles on my face and/or body I’ll take it. New Year’s seems like a better excuse than any. I’m also wanting to use my Charlotte Tilbury Vintage Vamp palette at every opportunity, so I decided to create a New Year’s Eve makeup tutorial with all four beautiful shades.
Somehow it’s only one week until the big day. How we’ve managed to reach this point and get though all of 2016’s shit I don’t know. But one way or another, Christmas day is almost upon us. If you’ve left your shopping to the last minute, you might be panicking and wondering where on earth to start. But fear not! Being the helpful Christmas elf that I am, I’ve compiled a gift guide for all you last minuters.
