Game of Thrones actor stars in sexy perfume ad

  • Post a comment

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington has sent our hearts racing yet again in a television ad for Jimmy Choo’s new Man fragrance.

The 27-year-old, who plays heartthrob Jon Snow in the hit HBO show, is depicted looking pensive in a tailored suit and crisp white shirt – a far cry from the rough and rugged look he’s known for.

Now if only we could take the place of Kit’s leggy model companion…

Why you need to be using Beauty Direct

  • Post a comment

I think we can all agree that the Internet is a pretty wonderful place. How else would we be able to watch babies eating lemons for the first time, download our favourite songs (legally, of course) or find out how to cook the ultimate roast chicken?

Well, you’re about to love the Internet (and the folks at Mary Kay) a whole lot more. You can now purchase your favourite Mary Kay products much quicker and more easily than ever before thanks to Mary Kay Beauty Direct.

Here’s how it works: once you sign up to Beauty Direct, you’re able to choose your Independent Beauty Consultant (henceforth IBC) from a list of those closest to you. Then, you fill up your cart with as many of your fave Mary Kay products as you please. If you have any questions or queries about your products or the process, you can get in touch with your personal IBC – not some customer service hotline, an actual person, who’ll be able to give you personalised advice, whenever you need it. Then, once you place your order, your Mary Kay goodies will be delivered straight to your door!

No need to set up appointments, no need to wait any longer than necessary to stock up your beauty kit – just fast, efficient, and fuss-free shopping that you can do 24/7 (and in your pajamas, too, if you so please.)

Oh, and what’s even better than having a one-stop shop for all of your favourite Mary Kay skin, make-up, and fragrance products? Delivery is incredibly cheap. Or non-existent. If you spend anything less than $150, delivery is $3.95, and anything above makes delivery absolutely free – hoorah!

And just incase you needed any more inspiration to sign up to Mary Kay Beauty Direct immediately, here are some of our favourite Mary Kay beauty products that you can now buy quickly and easily online:

Mary Kay CC Cream SPF15

I've got some Rum & Raisin Dark choc block left in the pantry so maybe that will get munched tonight! I like the sound of the MJ White Chocolate mask though too!

Go from mum to sexy mamma with these low maintenance hair looks

  • Post a comment

It’s time to ditch the sterotype of mums with young kids in messy buns at the school gate. While being a mum is undoubtedly a hard job, it doesn’t mean that mums aren’t also sophisticated, stylish and sexy. In fact, mums can rock some of the coolest hair looks around. We love these celebrity mum hairstyles and the best thing is, they’re totally low maintenance.


The bob – like Reese Witherspoon

“I don’t think you can go wrong with a concave bob,” says Barney Martin, Pantene Ambassador & Hair Expert. “The style frames the face nicely, it’s still quite fun and youthful, it works well with both straight and curly hair, and it doesn’t require regular trims as it still looks great once it grows longer.”

Top tip: for an extra sleek bob, use your straightener to curl the ends slightly inwards and smooth over using Pantene Styling Treatment Foam Smooth Straight.

Ombre colour – like Jessica Alba

“This look is great for mums looking to spend less time in the salon as it requires a lot less fuss compared to your average half head of foils” says Janelle Dongalen, Technical Director and Trainer at Lucespace Salon. “All you need to keep it looking fresh is a gloss treatment every 6-8 weeks and ensure you’re using a colour conditioner at home.” The best thing about this hair look is it doesn’t require nearly as many touch-ups or visits to the salon because the regrowth just adds to the look!

Top tip: those with greys can also enjoy the benefits of this regrowth-loving look by simply using Clairol Nice'n Easy Root Touch Up when necessary.


Crazy cool colour – like Nicole Richie

Who says mums can’t be edgy? Having an out of the ordinary hair colour ensures all attention is drawn to the colour, so you can spend less time on styling and more time being the coolest mum ever. Janelle recommends using a colour maintenance range such as Aveda Colour Conserve Shampoo & Conditioner to keep the colour vibrant. 

Top tip: if you’re not ready to commit to a crazy colour just yet, you can try it out temporarily using Fudge URBAN Hair Chalk or Vixen Hair Colour Chalks.


Which celebrity mum’s hairstyle do you like at the moment? What hairstyle tips do you suggest for mums who like to keep it fun and low-maintenance?

I want to try an at-home Ombré colour - is there such a thing? Might search the BH database... Has anyone used a home ombré kit?

Reese's hair certainly looks easy to care for - but I like Jessica Alba's too although that looks a bit more maintenance for me.
