I’d never heard of Katherine Daniels, but back in October I had an invite to an event in Corby for this relatively new skincare brand. For one reason or another, I didn’t get to the event, but the super nice ladies at the PR company asked me if I wanted to go for a facial at their head office instead. It was in Bedford, and I was thinking, hmmmm, can I afford the time for an hour and a half round trip, but after looking on the website and seeing the uber stylish products, I decreed, yes; yes I jolly well could make the effort (I think Muddy Cambridge is a fan too).Read more

Well here we go. It’s officially time to start thinking about making the most of the festive scene here in Northants (I’ve already lost two Xmas presents I thought I was being organised in buying). This week the Muddy Guide has a flavour of good times and boogie, as well as some classy performances and more than a little sprinkling of festive fare.

Rembember Muddy’s take on beach body ready, and my four-point-plan of ‘head, brows, tan and toes (sang to the theme of head, shoulders, knees and toes, obvs)?
