Christmas Gift For Her | Magnitone Barefaced Daily Cleansing Brush

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIf there’s been one hyped-up beauty product in recent years that has given me serious FOMO, it’s the facial cleansing brush. Designed to deep-clean, exfoliate and tone, it seemed like the product my skin was crying out for – and like a lot of women, it was top of my Christmas list (okay, maybe second after a puppy – that’s a dream I’m never giving up on, dammit).

So, you can imagine my absolute delight when the amazing Magnitone London Vibra-Sonic™ Facial Cleansing Brush* arrived at Casa de Claire, right in time to get my skin glowing for Christmas. In a stunning limited edition rose gold finish, the skincare tool instantly caught my attention – who wouldn’t want this pretty addition to their bathroom? But mainly I was excited to put the Magnitone to the test and see if these brushes are worth the hype. View Full Post

7 Things I’ve Learned Since I Stopped Eating Meat

Vanity Claire blog

Yes lads and lasses, you read that title right: I, the self-proclaimed chicken nugget queen and girl who once had a reputation at work for eating pork pie for breakfast (one time might I add, but some reps just stick with you), have stopped eating meat. It was a change I’d been slo-o-o-wly moving towards for a while, but for the last couple of months I’ve gone cold tofu and kicked my meat habit.

Okay, I can almost hear the eye-rolls from here. But I’ll kick off by saying that this isn’t intended to be a preachy post where I try to urge you all to start milking almonds – instead, I thought I’d share some of the things I’ve noticed since making the change from meat-eater to things-that-are-shaped-like-meat-eater.

Flip me guys – it’s only bloody autumn already! Yes, it’s basically felt like autumn since May (what is this ‘summer’ you speak of?), but it’s actually, officially, properly here now. And while the colder season can be crap for a number of reasons – dark mornings, hat hair, DE-ICER – there are also some major advantages. Costa’s Christmas drinks menu, for example. Stollen, for another. Aaaaand an excuse to go shopping for a new autumn wardrobe! View Full Post

7 Things I’ve Learned From a Year in the Hair Industry

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Now this might shock you considering I put out about, ooh, one whole post a month these days, but blogging is not my full-time job (or anything remotely close). Instead, I earn my wine tokens money by working in the marketing team of a large hairdressing company, which means that although I usually look like a hot mess, I’ve learned a thing or two about hair. And as sharing is caring, I thought I’d share some of these handy tips with you.
