ON THE GO WITH LIN & LO

London Blogger Photographer Style Alice Reinhardt Form 42, Lin & Lo Makeup, Bubbledogs

Today I waned to have a quick run though some of my favourite things to do on the weekend. And at the top of that list is hot dogs. All of the hot dogs, and my favourite hangout of that is Bubbledogs in Fitzrovia. One thing that isn’t big on my list is spending forever getting ready and that’s where my newfound fave Lin & Lo compact in beautiful coppery Sahara came in handy. At the end of the day…

ROYAL MANSOUR SPA ESCAPE

Marrakesh Royal Mansour Spa Morocco Style Fashion Form 42

I am not sure that relaxing is something I really do. Every holiday, trip, day out for me is go, go, go. I love discovering new things too much when I travel. I come back from every holiday feeling sleep deprived, hungry, on the verge of a getting cold; just generally a bit broken. But when I was wrapping up my Marrakesh trip, Royal Mansour made sure I got all the relaxation and good vibes in, and got shipped to London…

SPACE NK-ED

It’s spring and this change of seasons inevitably means a need to change up my skincare and makeup staples. Warmer, wetter weather and more clothing variety than my hand can grab at for from under the duvet in the mornings both mean that I need lighter makeup in both texture and colour. I am ditching my beloved E45 and looking for something that doesn’t feel like I am slathering cake mix on my face twice a day. Cue Liz Earle and…

OMBRE BEAUTY

When traveling, hauling luggage and generally not having a minute to spare, it can sometimes be hard to keep up a chip-free manicure. So this modern french option aka glitter tips, is my fool-proof go-to look that is equal parts polished and uncomplicated. It isn’t as harsh as the classic french, easier to upkeep and doesn’t show those pesky chips while you are mid-journey and have no way to freshen up your manicure. Base coat: Illamasqua | Top coat: Illamasqua | Bracelet: Shaun…

HEAD FULL OF SUNSHINE

My hair is very long, very bleached and continuously subjected to awful weather and sea water form all my adventure travels. Bottom line is – it needs a lot of TLC, especially when I am on the road. So here is my secret hair weapon, both on the road and off. To look after my hair, I deep condition and let it dry naturally (heat is bad bad bad; it causes by far the most damage). And to fish off…

THE ART OF RELAXING

It has been a long and gruelling month of exams already, and I have a lot more to go.  So on a day off in between exams I finally managed to come up for some air, metaphorically speaking, and de-stress a little. Although I perform well under pressure, I am not good at dealing with the stress. It takes a real toll on me. I get very moody easily and often get sick. My body goes into self-preservation mode and starts to really mess around…

CLEANSING RITUALS

It has been an absolutely crazy month, working hard, preparing for a show, spend every living moment in the studios. And when I am this pressed for time, things start to drop. As a result, I have not updated the blog in a while (sorry about that), my apartment looks like a nuclear wasteland and I no longer remember what a manicure is. But the one thing I never drop from my routine is face care. Here is a look…

A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME

  When it comes to beauty I love going for a natural look – soft brown shimmer for the eyes and a nude sheer pink for lips and cheeks. And finding the perfect lip colour is no small feat. But when I tried on this blood red lip colour by Kevyn Aucoin I found it. It’s a perfect red to match any hair colour and it feels completely weightless – a great lipstick to complement any evening outfit.  …
