Stella Tennant: Another Beautiful Face

Stella Tennant: Another Beautiful Face


Stella Tennant, what a beautiful face.

She is strikingly beautiful with strong features; her slight masculine but superbly feminine look means she has the ability to model just about anything.

Stella Tennant looks very much the Brit and is oftentimes very eccentric in her work; she is one to watch and admire.

Close to 50, she is still gracing the runway and working many beautiful campaigns.

How To Shop Online: Making The Click Work For You


How to shop online?

Everybody knows how to do that, right?

It would seem to me they don’t. I am often having discussions with friends who tell me they find it “hard” work, too much to navigate and they end up with a basket of items they don’t want. Online shopping is a skill, like good sales shopping. It is easy to master but equally a daunting process if it’s not an adopted habit.

7 Natural Ways To Reduce Water Retention

7 Natural Ways To Reduce Water Retention

How to reduce water retention?

This question was front of mind to ask Lily when I saw her last week. 

I have been flying quite a bit recently and have found the problem of water retention, especially after longer flights, to be a problem. Apart from the way an excess of fluid looks it makes me feel ghastly and is very uncomfortable. 

I know for some water retention is never an issue but for me it has been an irritating companion for as long as I remember. I asked Lily for some natural and easy ways to help the problem. I find if a remedy is not something I can take or do easily, it doesn’t last long. 

Here are her suggestions and there are at least three I can improve on.

Leonor Greyl: In Her Routine

Leonor Greyl: In Her Routine

Hair care is very much in her routine.

Mine at least.

Since changing my hair colour and letting nature take it’s course (I never thought I would be that girl) I am far more aware of how it looks.

I tortured my hair forever, have tried most shades and loved a visit to the hairdresser more than anything; a colour and cut was a favourite pastime.

With the amount of stress I have given my hair it’s surprising I have any left.


Now my focus is on the shade of grey and the condition.

How To Banish “Those” Cravings

How To Banish “Those” Cravings

How to banish “those” cravings?

I don’t really wish to admit to naughty cravings but I don’t think it will come as much surprise to most women.


Lily recently had an article published recently in London’s online Daily Mail and I found her tips and tricks hugely helpful, especially the “almond” one.

What I like most about Lily’s advice is it is not only practical but also easy to follow. 


Here is what she says about “those” cravings,

Beauty Drama At the Airport

Beauty Drama At the Airport

How could there possibly be a beauty drama at the airport?

Well, I had one.


So it was definitely not life altering or life threatening and a very tiny drama in the scheme of life but it could have ended badly; I might have been a very unhappy traveller.


Let’s back up a bit.
