Welcome to November. Brrrr.
The beginning of this past week was the first occasion when I’ve felt cold for months and months. Typically, a head cold soon followed the temperature drop.
Despite feeling a little under the weather, with the summer well and truly over, I’m also trying to be as healthy as possible, watching what I eat and use on my skin.
I’m not sure whether I could go Vegan but I’m intrigued by vegan cosmetics and beauty products storming the market right now.
I’ve just discovered the new beauty range Splash Cosmeticsfrom a friend of mine Hannah Wild, who has set up the business from the seaside town of Margate, where I spent many a childhood summer holiday. Hannah is extremely conscious of the environment and vegan issues.
Splash Cosmetics carefully source the best ingredients for their products with no harsh chemicals like SLS. All essential oils are carefully blended to create amazing scents and have great benefits.
There is no plastic in any of the products or packaging, and pouches and labels are biodegradable plus tins are reusable or recyclable. She never tests her products on animals nor uses any ingredients that have been tested on animals and all of her products are Vegan too.

In this instalment, as the temperatures plummet, a good friend of ours Danny Rampling flagged up a great winter fashion range, guaranteed to keep you warm, and belly laughing. Also in this issue, we check out Movember and the big push to support Men’s health during November.
Plus, my beauty Ed Ask Aurora checks out some cult beauty buys at Clinique. More Christmas inspiration.
