Postive Exposure

Rethinking Beauty Yesterday I was lucky enough to find myself seated front and centre for one of the most inspiring presentations I’ve seen in a long time. The presenter- Rick Guidotti- worked as a high profile fashion photographer for fifteen years in New York, Milan, Paris, and London shooting campaigns for labels like Yves Saint Laurent and editorial images for all the best glossies. While he enjoyed the art of photography...

Sleep Well and Look Good

Sleeping Beauty had it worked out. We all know it but not all of us are game to admit it- no amount of coffee or concealer will make up for a restless night.

When it comes to fashion items it can be pretty easy to say no to excess packaging by refusing the carry bag or asking companies to pack your items in biodegradable post options. Sadly...

Emily-Rose is one of these people and she and her team need...
