I still remember when IOPE launched its retinol line in 1997. An instant hit, it quickly sold out in every store. People had to put down their names on a waiting list just to get their hands on a tube! Since then, the line has been revamped several times. The latest incarnation is BIO-RetinogenicTM, a new cutting-edge...

A well-brewed coffee is one of the greatest pleasures of life. The tasty brown liquid gives us the energy we need to start the day with the right foot. But, did you know it also does wonders for the skin? Coffee is rich in flavonoids, a group of antioxidants that prevents the damage caused by light, pollution, and...

Next time you decide to head over to the party island of Ibiza, make sure to book a trip to Lio, a stylish and sexy cabaret restaurant and bar overlooking the port of Ibiza. I went a couple of months ago when I was in Ibiza on a trip with my girlfriends and I can honestly say it was the highlight of my trip – and not...

I don’t wear very much makeup, but eyeliner is a must for me. It defines my eyes and makes me look fresher and sexier. I’ve lost count of how many different kinds I’ve tried over the years, mostly from high-end brands like Bobbi Brown, NARS, and Chanel.

Touted to be the new and improved version of the iconic Water Sleeping Pack, the new formula promises to deliver just as much hydration with the dual action of firming skin....

A few weeks ago, my friend Silvia held her baby shower at The Roseberry Mandarin Hotel with a group of our closest girlfriends. I have to say, there are few settings more perfect for a baby shower in London than afternoon tea at a beautiful hotel. Sandwiches and cakes at the Roseberry Hotel The tearoom of The...

No matter how tired I am at the end of the day, I always find the time to double-cleanse. As a working mother with four kids and a dog, saying I’m exhausted pretty much every night would be an understatement! But even still, I know it’s essential to remove every last speck of dirt and grime from my skin to keep it...

Makeup from SpaceNK I’m all about natural beauty. When it comes to looking your best, I believe skincare is much more important than makeup. If you take great care of your skin, you can achieve a natural, flawless complexion, which feels and looks better than any foundation you can buy! But that doesn’t mean I...

A few weeks ago, I took part in the 10km Regent’s Park race in London. I didn’t win, but then I didn’t expect to. It was only my second race since I just started running a few months ago. It’s something I wish I had done a long time ago.   Running is my meditation. Whenever I feel stressed out, have so much in my mind or...
