April has been a strange month for me and my skin. I probably hit every single one of my triggers: Stress? Check! (appearing on TV with no make up on: absolutely terrifying) Warm weather? Check! Cold weather? Check! (seriously, spring, get it together) Indulged in too much alcohol? Oh, that’s a big check. So the products featuring in this Skincare Shake Up April 17 edition really had their work cut out for them!

Neon polishes are released at this time every year and, although it’s such a cliche, they instantly make me think of gloriously sunny holidays, festivals and fun. And the essie Neon 2017 collection sums up this feeling perfectly. Bright, bold, pretty and still wearable  – these are the perfect way to get your fingers and toes ready for the beach… whether that’s in the Maldives or Margate.

Colour correcting has been around for ages but has only really hit the mainstream in the past year. I’ve had a lot of questions from people who’ve heard that green colour corrector products are wonderful for those of us with facial redness… but understandably, many are put off by the thought of ending up with a green face! So I’ve recorded a very quick tutorial showing how to cover redness with green concealer.

You may have noticed I missed Friday Faves last week – there was no huge reason, but I only had one thing that jumped out at me as a favourite (don’t worry, I saved it for this week as I’m still in love with it!) so I didn’t want to scrabble around for filler. All killer, no filler, that’s what I say. I said that once.

A few weekends ago my wonderful friends, Paul and Alice, got married in the Lake District and it was flipping lovely. A beautiful location, a fun and very ‘them’ wedding, combined with a stay in a cute little Airbnb with great friends all made it a weekend to remember. A few people asked me to blog what I wore, so here is my spring wedding guest OOTD featuring this stunning red dress.

It’s been a while since I’ve done some nail art and I was looking back at previous designs I’ve done (by the way you can find all my nail images HERE if that floats your boat) and one of my favourites was my camouflage nail art. So I thought I’d give it a spring/summer vibe and try out some pastel camouflage nail art!

As April is Global Rosacea Awareness Month I’ve been sharing a lot of information about living with, and learning to control, rosacea. It’s a frustrating condition as it can be completely calm and soothed until BAM! Something changes. A tiny shift in routine, diet, or stress levels can result in a flare up of epic proportions. Which is why I wanted to talk about how to survive warm weather with rosacea.
