The new paint technique, ombre is best described to those unfamiliar with the term by looking at a paint sample card.  Rather than merely being a collection of vibrant stripes, ombre design creates a color gradient which progresses from lightest to darkest, pairing similar colours of the chart together.    We’ve seen ombre on the runway too, from flowy dresses to dip-dyed tresses…

It’s a boy!

I was rather eager to see what VW had done with the third edition of the iconic Beetle. Iconic is a word I genuinely mean, launched in the 1930’s, the first generation VW Beetle was apparently penned by Adolf Hitler on a paper towel. With almost 60 years of production, 21 529 464 were sold, ending its manufacturing run in Brazil in 2003. To put that into perspective, it’s like Joan Rivers career…

Fifty shades of BB Creams

There isn't one cosmetic house that hasn't come up with a BB cream, which, for the uninitiated, stands for an all-in-one cream which replaces serum, moisturiser, primer, foundation and sunblock. It has replaced the lowly tinted moisturiser and can be worn as a foundation, depending on the amount of coverage required. That's all very well if you are twenty years old, but for those of us who aren't and are challenged to be naturally dewy-skinned after all the functions that have to be attended…
