“Over the years I have developed a picture of what a human being living humanely is like. She is a person who understands, values and develops her body, finding it beautiful and useful; a person who is real and is willing to take risks, to be creative, to manifest competence, to change when the situation calls for it, and to find ways to accommodate to what is new and different, keeping that part of the old that is still useful and discarding what is not.”
― Virginia Satir
Alert! Alert! We have a new holy grail beauty product on our hands. It’s called Terrybly Densiliss, it’s now available at Space NK, and it’s going to put your face in a time machine.
I may have been a die hard BB cream lover since my days as a beauty editor, but By Terry‘s latest foundation release has me picking up my terribly neglected foundation brush once again. Terrybly Densiliss is a skin miracle. While there are both powerful wrinkle-fighting serums and skin-perfecting foundations in market, this is the first product that combines the two with finesse. Not just a sprinkling of overhyped beauty oil in a layer of cake, either. Instead, a powerful balance of ‘Mimetic Factor’ (a patented plant active ingredient that works on collagen synthesis) in a satin-finish liquid foundation that feels weightless on the skin.
Seeing it hard at work on a variety of faces and ages, the ten shades currently available also cover the ghostly pale-’coloured’ (me) to the richest ebony skin tones, virtually deleting wrinkles and imperfections on contact. In fact, fans of Terry’s old school Lumiere Veloutee will fall in lust with this. It’s Lumiere Veloutee 2.0 and then some.
At £75, Terrybly Densiliss is certainly an investment…but small change for the promise of having 23-year-old skin for the long haul.

This month I was asked to participate in McArthurGlen Designer Outlets Art of Denim campaign; a challenge for a group of fellow bloggers and I to DIY two denim garments into something a little bit…special.
Though we were given a toolkit of studs, pens, thread and more, the first of two pieces – an oversized denim vest dress from All Saints – was begging for some extra pizazz. After a manic day of dying and sparkle studding, the result is this crystallized ombre hem…
…and now I want to do it to everything I own.
Check back this week for the second DIY look!
This month, I seem to spending all of my time singing acoustic versions of dirty rap songs. In my head, of course. It took some full-force willpower to not create an Ultimate Dirty Rap Song Playlist, but I managed to restrain myself. A bit. Welcome to October’s free Spotify playlist!
