Miller Harris – From Concrete to Flowers

Miller Harris

I’ve long been a fan of Miller Harris perfume, to me the name conjures the distinct and complicated notes of a real perfume, as if the perfume itself is telling a story from where it came. Lyn Harris has been working in the fragrance industry for more than twenty years and founded Miller Harris in … Continue reading

Mother’s Day Beauty Inspiration


I was lucky enough to be invited to a bloggers event last week at Forde Hair Brighton. I went along with Danielle and Nathalie from LadyLovesFashion and LadyLovesBeauty.   We were completely pampered with drinks, cake and gifts and beautiful new hair do’s.  Nathalie, soft curls, Danielle, defined waves and me, a rather slick up … Continue reading

London Fashion Week – Insider Beauty Tips


London Fashion Week is over for another season and while I may have repetitive strain injury from working a multitude of social media platforms, and feet that have the gnarly look of walking around in heels over London’s cobbled streets for five days, I’m happy to report my ‘made-up’ face survived the flash bulbs, queues … Continue reading

Happy New Clarisonic

Deborah Simpson Boston Clarisonic 1

I like to think I’m fairly in the know about new technology, early adopter to this, first to get that, but when it comes to skincare I’m way behind the curve. Regular readers will know it’s only in the last couple of years that I’ve discovered skincare other than basic moisturiser and a wet flannel. … Continue reading

Autumn Skincare


This time of year as the seasons change from warmer to colder weather I tend to update my beauty regime and add a few extra steps.  I thought I’d post my current products which are slightly richer in texture and provide more hydration during the months when your skin is exposed to colder weather and … Continue reading



Every once in a while a skincare product comes around that makes you take note.  Not because of the hype or the promotion but because you try it for yourself and you really notice the difference. I was asked to try Aurelia  Miracle Cleanser quite some time ago, I loved the smell, all eucalyptus, chamomile, … Continue reading

The Perfect Polish for less than Perfect Nails


I’m one of these people whose nails just don’t grow.  Ooo how I covet friends glossy nails, celebrity trends for pointy, sculpted and arty talons. I’ve tried vitamins, oils, buffers, polishes, nail polish so ‘glue like’ the Solvite man could hang in his white overalls from a helicopter for weeks… (If born after 1985 try … Continue reading

SBC – Simply Beautiful Collection


I’m a big fan of Arnica Gel, my Mum introduced me to SBC’s Arnica Gel years ago, ‘Use it on that bruise”, “Arnica will take down the swelling”.  We also swear by it in our house for anything from aches and pains, to arthritis and eczema.  I can’t claim it cures either but its soothing, … Continue reading

DELAROM Paris – Urban Retreat at Harrods

delarom (1)

I write this blog today as a reformed character. I’ve spent years abusing my skin by not taking off make up, too much sun, coffee, alcohol, and late nights have added ‘life’ lines! For the most part of my misspent youth I revolted against skincare regimes in favour of a hot muslin cloth and a … Continue reading

Natural Beauty at Urban Retreat Boutique


I’ve been pretty lucky with my skin when I consider the dreadful things I’ve put it through over the years.  I didn’t have acne or problem skin as a teenager and thought the whole skincare routine (cleanse, tone, moisturise) was a little boring. I used water and a muslin cloth for most of my 20’s … Continue reading
