  • Muddy Tries New IonActive Facial

    Its been an age since I caught up with Muddy award winning beauty salon Claire at Banburys in Launceston (blame island hoping, face stuffing and general slovenliness) and I heard a rumour that they were about to launch a new immediate results customisable facial – a countywide first no less! What what what? Well, the […]

  • New Beauty Salon In Bude To Make You Blush

    From the outside an industrial estate might not be the first place you’d expect to find a exclusive beauty salon (with its own training academy) is it muddies?

I’d avoided waxing my er intimate areas (apologies to all who know me) since a moment of madness at a local college beauty salon had me needing skin grafts. Ok not […]

    • Craig Chapman Colours Me Happy

      The new year is no time for being pious and sober – it’s grey enough, thanks all the same. Kudos if you managed dry January (what evs), but in my experience self-denial only leads to face-stuffing, hangovers and self-loathing before the month is out (I’m soooo weak!). Much more mojo-sustaining in these grey months is a bit […]
