New Beauty

Ever stood in front of a row of mascaras at the beauty boutique feeling totally baffled? With aisles full of choices it’s hard to figure out what will actually make a great addition to your beauty routine.


In an attempt to combat this problem not just for myself, but for hundreds of confused women everywhere each month I will be sorting through and testing the latest product offerings over at the Hip + Urban Girl’s Guide to put together my top picks of the items that deserve some consideration in your beauty arsenal. May nothing but good hair days, DIY manicures and the perfect lip colour be in your future. Here’s what’s new and exciting this month.

Another Day Another Manicure

Audrey Hepburn once said she believed in manicures. I am of the same faith.

If you’re not a believer, may I suggest you observe that last dozen or so images of nail polish adventures I’ve posted to TwitPic. Here is a little taste of the ones I’ve chosen for the Manicure Hall of Fame (I wish this was a real thing). But really it’s so hard to choose. I don’t want to offend OPI, Essie, Revlon, or Chanel. It’s like a mother confessing which child she loves the most, or a tween choosing her favourite Justin Bieber song. Impossible. Still, I wish you the best for your own lacquer experiments. May your polish always be long lasting and your manicures never be French tipped (unless they look like this).
