If you've inked without thinking, you will be pleased to know that you are not the only one!    
Focus around tattoo removal has soared once again in the media with Tattoo Fixers currently on E4 and Tattoo Disasters on Channel Spike. In a culture where tattoo no longer means ‘forever’, we are now a nation of brave inkers who don’t mind experimenting with tattoo removal if things go wrong!
    Lynton Lasers has seen figures double in the last year with clients who have requested tattoo removal a day or two after they have got their tattoo and before the skin has even healed post ink.
    As recent as last week, Lauren Goodger revealed her latest tattoo, the name of her current beau on her wrist. A risky act, Goodger stated that her latest body art “can always be removed”. With a reputation of “removing” past lovers from her body, Lauren isn’t new to the tattoo removal process, she also had ex fiancé Mark Wright’s name removed from her body back in 2011.

Dom Pérignon Reveals its exclusive end of year collaboration with designer Iris Van Herpen

It’s that time of the year where champagne flows after fashion shows as we enter fashion week season.
To mark the beginning of fashion week and the fast approaching end of 2014, prestige champagne brand Dom Pérignon, has revealed its exciting limited edition collaboration with designer Iris Van Herpen.
The Dutch fashion star's inspiration comes from the way Dom Pérignon champagne transforms over time. To celebrate the revolutionary metamorphosis of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2004 into its Second Plénitude, P2, she has created an intriguing limited edition bottle as well as signed gift boxes.
Throughout its history, Dom Pérignon has been intricately linked to the concept of metamorphosis. The spiritual legacy of Dom Pérignon constantly reinvents itself throughout the ages, selectively choosing when to emerge in the form of a new vintage and this time has now arrived.


In addition, Iris van Herpen has designed an exclusive, mesmerizing über-premium bottle-holder, titled Cocoonase, inspired by the importance of time in crafting Dom Pérignon vintages.  Agility and speed needed to pick the best grapes at their perfection versus the wine’s many potent years of maturation are vital in creating Dom Pérignon champagne. The elegant, horizontal bottle-stand Cocoonase highlights this duality of time to showcase the singularity of Dom Pérignon wines.


“Metamorphosis represents continued creation, energy and transformation,” said Richard Geoffroy, Dom Pérignon Chef de Cave. “This concept inspires the creation of our wines, in their active maturation and evolution from one plénitude, or window of expression, to the next.” Lets hope there are some amazing champagne cocktails on the horizon!

Summer 2014 has literally come and gone, quicker than sweaty Londoners gulping Pimm’s in the unusual heatwave. As usual, the summer brought some glitzy events, which I had to do some serious scrubbing up for.
I needed treatments that would last from May through to August, yet not look “over done” at May’s Cannes film Festival. A very glamorous occasion indeed, I definitely had to do some pre-glam prep before the screening of my friend Dan Simpson’s Film, 'The Rendlesham UFO Incident'.
The amazing anti-ageing expert Dr. Anil Budh-Raja gave me facial injections in form of the right dose of Botox - not too much – but enough to give a natural look, seeing as Dr Anil is also an experienced GP, I felt safe in his medical hands.
I also had an infrared laser facial treatment at the West London Dermatology Centre in Chiswick. A week after this treatment my face was glowing, looking visibly younger and tighter. After a gorgeous glam haircut and highlights by a super friendly stylist at Headmasters, I was ready to get into my red dress and literally FACE the party!

Being in my late 30s, I had started seeing too many facial lines.  They were a lot more than sweet smile lines, in fact, more like I-had-a-tough-last-10-years lines! Here are some ideas on how to stay looking young!   When GP and Anti-Ageing expert Doctor Anil Budh-Raja (“Dr. Anil”) offered to do a case study with treatments on my face I happily accepted. I gave him the challenge to make me look at least 5 years younger in 2 easy steps.
Weather or not you think its easy would depend on how you feel about needles. Luckily I do not have a needle phobia.
 At the first session I had Botox injections on my forehead, frown lines and smile lines around the eyes.   Dr Anil takes great pride in the “natural look”, to never put too much Botox in the face and especially to not ‘raise the eyebrow’ so that you look constantly surprised.
A week after the session I was very pleased with the results, I did not look frozen faced at all, as I smiled the millions of lines around my eyes and forehead had vanished.
2 weeks after my first session I was back for the second step in the challenge, having dermal fillers injected.   Dr Anil filled one deep frown line that Botox couldn’t beat. He also put filler in the ‘side of mouth’ lines and a very small amount in my lip to make it just that tiny bit more plump. There are numerous uses for botox, including botox for migraines!
The first few days with lip swelling I had the panic of will-I look-like-a-porn-star-forever thoughts. Lip swelling is common and was gone after a few days. I was very happy with the natural looking more plump youthful look to my face, not too much but still a remarkable difference. Would my friends notice? Many of them say I look different, that I look so fresh and fantastic.
Mission completed and the two step challenge successful!
Dr Anil recommends Botox every 3-4 month and fillers just once a year. I will follow his advice.
 Goodbye wrinkle face-hello twinkle face!

So, like everyone else out there I decided that 2014 was going to be the year that I turned back the clock, and I’m talking about the aging clock!
With lots of new treatments on the market offering to help me do just that, I hunted around for something a little different.  And that’s how I met Dr Sister, otherwise know as Dr Dracula (the real dracula?!).  Yes, he does take blood from you, but it’s all for a good cause, and that my friend is know as PRP which has become know as the infamous Dracula facial.
With celeb fowlers like Kim Kardashian and Bar Rafaeli I was eager to give it a try.  The treatment was originally developed to treat receding gums and has been used for this for more than two decades before it was used as an anti ageing tool.

Nirvana Spa:   Suffering from January blues? A bit of TLC could be just what you need to put that magic back into your life, as well as give you that much needed restoration!
There’s nothing like a spa day to help you to relax and realign yourself when life gets too stressful.
The Trusted Beauty Guide has visited and reviewed many spa’s over the years and we’ve realised there are only a few establishments who get it right when it comes to giving your mind, body and soul just what it needs. Nirvana Spa has always been on our list to review so when we were recently invited to the unveiling of their Crystal Suite and their new multi -sensorial spa rituals, we took the opportunity to experience an afternoon at what’s known as one of the UK’s largest spas.
The Wokingham based spa is just one of the few which has its own underground reservoir of spring water which it uses to fill its pools. It has six pools, including an award-winning, 53 station hydrotherapy spa.
Nirvana Spa is famous for its state-of-the-art Thermal Suite and exclusive Celestial Floatation Pool.  An amazing 60 tonnes of genuine Dead Sea salts, including 21 essential minerals, are dissolved in water from Nirvana Spa’s own underground source, heated to a comfortable 35˚C.  One floatation session is thought to be the equivalent of a good night sleep.
On Arrival Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly staff who kindly gave us keys to our lockers where we could change into gowns and slippers and kiss goodbye to our mobile phones for the afternoon. I have to admit, it took a minute or two to let go of my phone, as I’ve got so used to it always being with me, but I was glad to let go of the outside world to enter spa heaven. My fellow reviewer also felt the same.

Spa Treats    As its National Chocolate Week we finally have an excuse to indulge in chocolate and not feel guilty about it.
For chocolate lovers there are events taking place nationally from 14th to 20th October including the world’s largest chocolate show which is in London for the very first time. Salon Du Chocolat takes place at the National Hall, Olympia and feature’s the world’s best chocolate, demonstrations and tastings from top chocolatiers and pastry chefs, children’s workshops, a chocolate fashion show, a bath filled with chocolate and a full size chocolate cocoa tree.
The exhibition also features a chocolate spa too which we are looking forward to enjoying the positive benefits of chocolate for our skin. Chocolate has been used in skincare since the mid 1800 and these days we are seeing cocoa butter being commonly added to the ingredients of cosmetics for its moisturizing and skin softening effects on the skin. A chocolate treatment can also boost serotonin levels making you feel happier.
  We asked the experts at SpaSeekers.com to recommend a few of their top chocolate treatments and here is what they’ve given us:
Chocolate Wrapper at Champneys Tring Chocolate lovers treat yourself! Start with a full body exfoliation to prepare your skin for the delicious warm chocolate body wrap. Enjoy the distinctive aroma of chocolate and relax with a scalp massage. Body butter is massaged into the skin to leave you intensively moisturised and with a guilt free feel good factor. (55 mins)

Chocolate Indulgence at Bannatynes Spas Nationwide A full body scrub is followed by a chocolate massage which is guaranteed
to have your mouth watering with the aroma of hot chocolate. Choose your options of mint, orange or original to ensure you capture the mood. (60 mins)

Cocoa Chocolate Back Massage at The Malvern Spa   Mouth-watering pampering for the back using Dead Sea Salts, Essential Oils and warm 100% Pure Cocoa Butter, this body scrub and massage is unforgettable.  A guilt free sensation to leave skin hydrated, re-mineralised and smelling gorgeous.
