Having spent years experimenting with the colour of my hair during my teens and twenties I had finally succumbed to the 'au naturale' look and then the dreaded greys began to set in. This has led to me needing a root tint every 6-8 weeks and my hair drying out even faster than my peroxided blonde days
I’ve been a big fan of PHYTO for years - 25 years to be precise. I first started using their products when I became a makeup artist in my early twenties, starting with their very iconic hair oils. Now they're not only in my work kit but a big part of my haircare at home.
On a recent trip to Cardiff Meghan Markle proved she's more than just fashion royalty, she's fashion royalty with a conscience. This is something we feel really passionately about at TGUE and it's great to see that the nations new fashion darling is doing her bit for ethical brands.
Increasingly, we want to know exactly what’s in those bottles, jars and tubs on our dressing tables or in our bathroom cupboards. While we all love a beautiful package, the most important part of the label is usually on the back. In tiny type. You guessed it… the ingredients list.
Winter is always a season that Wendy and I welcome with open cashmere adorned arms. But as we approach the end of January our daily uniform of snuggly jumpers and denim is feeling a little repetitive and dull.

During these winter months my skin always suffers but this year it has been worse than ever due to pregnancy hormones. In a bid to combat my dry sensitive skin I booked the VINOSOURCE MOISTURISING FACIAL at the CAUDALIE Covent Garden boutique and it was honestly the best facial I've had in London. This repairing treatment is like a moisturising drink for the skin, that provides the utmost comfort to sensitive skin.
Poppy Ackroyd is a composer from London, currently based in Brighton. Classically trained on violin and piano, she makes music by manipulating and multi-tracking sounds from just these two instruments. In 2017 she signed to Bjork’s label One Little Indian and released a mini album ‘Sketches’ in August. This is a beautiful classical album with an organic modern twist!
This place is a must visit for anybody living in the South East of London. I'm one of the very fortunate people that gets to pass it on my daily commute and am regularly popping in to purchase a new succulent or just to perk my spirits.
