Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry We are all intrigued to know more about the mysterious Billie Eilish. One of the biggest rising stars of the decade has gone behind the scenes with Apple allowing for a deeper exploration into her life. The documentary is scheduled to premiere on Apple TV+ and theatres in February 2021 (no exact release date as of yet). The new documentary will not only follow her rise to fame, but also this incredible year where she beat the odds and performed some amazing music. The release of her groundbreaking debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ saw Eilish win 5 grammy awards in January 2019 including: Album of The Year, Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album and Song of the Year. If that wasn’t enough, she was also chosen to be behind the theme song for the upcoming 25th James Bond movie, No Time to Die. It’s safe to say we will all be peeled to our screens to find out how the 18 year old has achieved so much so quickly and what she plans to do next.
Victoria Beckham has released a new lipstick range taking inspiration from her days as a Spice Girl. It’s great to see her reminiscing with reference to the band as she wasn’t involved with the reunion and worked hard over the years to distinguish and reinvent herself. VB has now paying homage to her Posh character in the form of a ninepiece lipstick collection, released in October, priced at £34 each.
A blue but beautiful story, Kate McIver created Secret Weapon Serum to diminish the effects treatment for stage-4 breast cancer had on her skin. The serum helps protect cell rejuvenation and is packed with hydrating formulas to reduce inflammation, darkness and acne. Sadly, Kate McIver lost her life to the disease but has left behind this remarkable creation and we are so thankful for it.
“This week, I celebrate Posh with the launch of Posh Lipstick. It is deeply personal - lipstick has always given me the confidence when I needed it and extra spice when I already had it. Each shade is inspired by a specific memory, and whilst the moments may have been my own, the energy and emotion is shared by us all.”
She signed off the post with “Posh is back” which we can all admit makes the heart of little girl in us flutter a little.
