Take a deep breath…

So church, venue, dress all purchased. Mother of the Bride and my wonderful little Bridesmaid is now all sorted too! And (the groom is most excited about this bit..) the honeymoon is now confirmed! But I have many other things to tick off my list and one of them is to get my skin glowing again! So I had my first Vital Elastine facial last week and my skin is playing ball! Looking much fresher and having over an hour of peace and quiet was good for the soul as well! Prepping for a wedding is one thing but looking after my beautiful salon is just as important! We will soon be launching a very...

A year ago a lovely guy came to frost the windows of the new salon and I think i won him over with my offer of a freddo bar! So last week we decided to get hitched!

A letter from the House of Commons!

I cannot express how excited I was to receive a beautifully embossed envelope in the post! On opening it I was delighted to read a lovely, supportive and kind letter from Lady Sylvia Hermon. We are 10 months along from the opening of Deborah Harper Makeup and Beauty. It has been busy, exciting and at times stressful! What makes running your own business stressful!?? Well it has never been the 2 wonderful girls that work along side me! Marian and Cara have been amazing this last year! They have gone the extra mile so many times and that support and kindness has never been taken for granted. It...

Olympic gold, true joy, real beauty!

Whilst waiting for Dyno Rod to come and sort out my drains I had the privilege of catching a little of olympics. Amazing to see Helen Glover and Heather Stanning cross the line and win gold!! I just so loved seeing the true joy on their faces as they were interviewed and received their medals. It is good to remember that being happy, loving life actually makes you look younger, radiant and it is infectious - as people will feel all the better for being around you! i have always said that beauty can be seen from the inside out! So take a little time just for you, relax. Invest in you!...

Why bother looking after your skin!?

I have one only answer to this question which I was asked this week - your skin will love you long term! When I meet clients who have taken care of their skin over the years it really does show! Normally I notice a more luminous complexion, the skin more refined and those tell tale signs of aging have been held back! I truly believe its not about spending crazy money on products but by discovering a routine that suits your lifestyle and getting the right analysis of what is going on with your skin. Starting on the 3rd of August with a visit from Claire Loughrin, Yon-Ka skincare specialist...
