Freelance Journalist and Presenter

Why should you spend your precious time reading my beauty blog? Because after nearly twenty years in the beauty business I know what I am talking about and I can save you time and money and help you to look your very best. Honestly.
I have been a health and beauty journalist since I graduated with a degree in Sociology – don’t ask – back in the Eighties. I started working on a magazine called Living and then worked for The Daily Mail and Marie Claire Health and Beauty before joining Hello! Magazine ten years ago.
I am also the beauty presenter on ITV’s This Morning, and have been a health and beauty expert on BBC’s The Club and The Vanessa Show, as well as a reporter for The Clothes Show. I have researched everything from anti ageing creams to AHA’s, fake tans to fake breasts. And I’ve interviewed a red carpet’s worth of celebrities in the process.
Beauty is all about looking and feeling good, but it’s also a multi million pound industry; so I think every woman should be a savvy consumer. I will guide you through the smoke and mirrors, the puff and powder, advising you on what works and what doesn’t, so we can all emerge looking our best.
