Walking the cobbles In Rye, East Sussex

May 9, 2017

Our monthly meanderings found us heading to the south coast this month, and we found ourselves in the gorgeously charming medieval town of Rye in East Sussex. About an hour and a half from London, its easily do-able in a day. Years ago, we had visited Rye as, in our pre kids life, we had a love of browsing antiques shops, and Rye has them…

Dior Pump’N’Volume Mascara – A Review

May 7, 2017

Mascara is, undoubtably, my desert island item. Its the one thing in my make up bag that I couldn’t live without. Life is just better with mascara! I have been looking for The One in the mascara stakes for what seems like forever. I love lots of mascaras, but there is always a sticking point after I have used them for a while. My favourite…

Latest in Beauty subscription box

May 1, 2017

Subscription boxes on the whole, are not my thing. When the first batch of boxes launched a few years ago, I did commit to one, but it was short lived. My thinking was that the box would be a good way to introduce me to new brands and products, and it did this, but I found that as time went on, there was less and…

April 28, 2017

I literally cannot believe that Im writing a five favourite things post again. It honestly feels like just last week I was sharing my love of posh tea and tanning oil! Crazy eh? April has been a busy month, peppered with birthdays, girl time meet ups, shopping  and decorating! I struggled with my five faves this month, as I felt I had a few worthy…

Journey back to health and fitness in your forties – The start!

April 23, 2017

I really wasn’t sure about writing this post, and deliberated over it for weeks. I was scared that I would be setting myself up to fail again, but this time publicly! I have started and failed so many “diets” or “lifestyle changes” over the last few years, that Im not sure even I believe I can succeed anymore. All I know is that I have…

Mineral Make up and its benefits to our skin

April 14, 2017

Im sure by now everyone has heard of mineral make up, but do we know what it is, or even care? Without doubt, there are benefits to wearing it, but it always had the reputation as not having great staying power, not much pigmentation in colours, and in the case of photography, giving “flash back” in photos. Well, things have definitely improved! There are now…

Exploring England – Flatford Mill, Suffolk

April 11, 2017

Our jaunt for March was in the beautiful county of Suffolk, although Flatford Mill actually sits right on the border of Essex and Suffolk. I had seen a photo of Flatford Mill on Instagram, and it looked so beautiful. As it is only about an hour away from where I live, we thought it could be a nice one to visit for a day trip.…
