A few days in Germany...

So, I'm in Berlin!

I arrived this afternoon and I'm here until Friday evening, and I can't wait to explore. The Concorde Hotel is gorgeous, but I can't see much out of the window except other buildings, so I don't know how close I am to historic places or things to see. I did mean to buy a city guide at Stansted but completely forgot.

Welcome to Berlin!

Bright eyes - Origins new mascara


Mascara is one product I never seem to have much luck with – too gloopy, too hard, too runny – then I found my current favourite, which I talked about here. Now perhaps there’s another contender on the horizon. Origins is launching its GinZing Brightening Mascara next month and I might just have to treat myself to it.

Containing plant extracts, vitamin E, rosemary extract and ginseng it sounds like skincare rather than mascara. Origins says it will give lift, length, definition and volume to lashes; it’s smudge proof yet also easy to take off and will make your eyes appear brighter. What’s not to like? Find it here
