Nixdminx blog - making your own perfume

After a long hiatus from blogging, rather than give you a load of old flannel about being too lazy to write I thought it would be great to resume with a review and share of an inspirational experience, that being; an afternoon making perfume with friends. WHY PERFUME? Perfume has such a rich and almost […]

Arbonne Easy on the Eye

I’m a great fan of sustainable and ethical products and think we should all try and shop a bit smarter.  When it comes to ethical beauty, there’s often an air of worthiness that for some is off putting. While many of us grew up with Body Shop and, roll on a decade or so, Lush; […]

I recently wrote about the new Lush Fun product and last week, having been invited along for afternoon tea, we popped along to the Lush store in Covent Garden to find out more and check out the Christmas goodies on offer there. If you’re Lush aficionado like I am, you’ll know that on first glance […]

lush fun 4

There is no denying that Lush is a great place to get fun handmade toiletry stuff and things for kids.  It manages to remain interesting and environmentally sound without being too worthy or earnest. The defining feature of all shops is the distinctive aroma you can smell at least a block or two away. In […]

lush spa kings road

Lush is instantly recognisable by the aroma that wafts around all of its stores not just around the UK, but the rest of the world.  It’s a great brand, full of wit and wisdom which it dispenses freely on its packaging and in abundance in store.   But did you know Lush has a small […]

Like most women, I use moisturisers and spend quite a bit on them but I’ve never tried botox because I’m worried it would freak me out and I would have to wait six months to be rid of it. Plus, I also like to have facial expressions. That said, I have an inquisitive nature and […]

Philips has launched it’s latest range of Satin Perfect epilators with Jamelia, who’s done some vox pops in Soho Square and a guide to looking great too, have a look at the video below. Prepping for the holiday is no easy task when you’ve got a family to pack for; it takes planning and can […]

Do anti cellulite creams work? You need to use it for one month morning and night and apply it from the ankles up to the waistline. It smells exotic and contains caffeine, menthol, camphor and salicylic acid plus ginseng and biloba. On first application, I was expecting to be glooped but the serum-like gel dries quickly and the tingling sensations do last a while.

I’m such a sucker for all things SATC – it gets worse as I get older…but I can’t wait to see the movie when it’s out and there’s another trailer too.

Now fess up, ladies, we all like a splurge on girlie goodies now and then don’t we? I love a bit of luxury but I wouldn’t say I spend as much as £24,000 per year like some. Neither would I say it’s a feminist principle to pamper or not, it’s just about feeling good and […]

I don’t know about you but I’m off to the British Mummy Bloggers meet up next Sunday. I’ve just checked the RSVP list and I nearly squealed – I’m going to meet my fellow Mummy bloggers – yihaa, I can’t wait! I just got an email from Susanna asking me to email some lovely lady who is organising the event and she’s going to send me a menu so I can preorder lunch for me and Miniminx. Even better, it’s at The Rainforest Cafe which Miniminx adores…wow – as my favourite neighbour says in her American drawl – that’s a class act!

Raise your eyebrows (if you can) this isn’t one of those too proud/too scared ‘botox’ diatribes. But it is fuelled by the tiniest bit of envy, plenty of fear and loathing and more than a touch of outright morbid curiosity.
