Strange Beautiful Polish – There are a few things I look for in a good nail polish. The first is strength, it’s got to last the distance. The last thing I want after spending a good 30-minutes on my nails is for it to chip the day after. The next is richness of colour, because if I’m required to put on any more than two coats, I get antsy. Finally it must have a quality brush; I hate getting those little black hairs stuck in the polish, especially if I’ve already done one streak-free coat. This polish meets all of the above criteria, plus it’s in a nifty two-colour pack, meaning I never have to try and coordinate my mani to my pedi again!

Chella Eyebrow Pencil – In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, eyebrows are the new everything. So this season, put away the tweezers and think Cara Delevingne, not Marlene Dietrich. This nifty pencil by Chella is easy to use with a fine tip giving you loads of precision. Because of a wind-up mechanism, there’s no sharpening needed and the colour goes on smoothly because of its rich pigments.




Caddy Make-up Bag – This little beauty has instantly been added to my gym bag. Its modern pattern and dark colours make it perfect for make-up (if you’ve ever had a white or cream make-up bag, you’ll understand why. Just one bottle of leaky concealer and it’s all over) and it’s small enough to fit into my handbag, but big enough to fit in my essentials – foundation, brushes, bronzer, mascara and eyebrow pencil. It has two large zip compartments, along with a number of smaller spaces (great to store tampons, a few panadol or breath mints.
