Marks & Spencer free Mothers day box

March 19, 2017

I thought I would do a short post about the current offer on at Marks and Spencer. Could be a nice addition to your Mothers Day gift? I will confess, Iv never really explored the beauty department in M&S, as I usually love to browse Bobbi Brown, Charlotte Tilbury and the like, so tend to shop in Boots, John Lewis etc. I had read lots…

The Labworth -Canvey Island, Essex

March 15, 2017

Nik (my long suffering husband) and I decided at the end of last year that we would try a different restaurant each month that we have never been to. Unfortunately for our waistlines, we are both big foodies! To start us off, for Christmas last year our teenage sons bought us a gift voucher for a restaurant thats a 25 minute drive from us that…

Retinols – A review

March 11, 2017

Every now and again in skincare, a new “must have” ingredient or product is shouted about, and it seems that everywhere you look, lotions and potions will be containing it. As an ex-owner of a skincare salon, it was nothing new to me to see the marketing agents of skincare/beauty companies re invent the wheel and tell us we all cant live without xyz. Not…

Exploring England – Finchingfield, Essex

March 6, 2017

I am a wanderer, a drifter, and love to travel and see new places. Im incredibly lucky that in my 43 years, I have been to many beautiful, interesting and far flung destinations, yet strangely, have seen very little of places closer to home. At 19, off I went with my backpack to travel the world, and when I finally came home at 21, had…

Li Lash lash serum – a review

February 28, 2017

The title says it all really! I purchased LiLash lash growth serum last August after lots of research on the internet. I was looking for a serum to not only recommend, but to lengthen my own lashes as, although not a bad length,  I wanted to see if I could get them fuller and more lash-licious! As much as I adore make up, Im also…

Bare Minerals Liquid Lip – A Review

February 25, 2017

Matte liquid lipsticks can be a tough one. Often they are drying and give you the weird, whats-happened-to-your-lipstick ring around the outside of your lips. They feel a little uncomfortable and, well, dry! I quite like the look of a matte lip on me, and I personally find that they last longer.  I have tried a lot of them, from the less expensive to the…

Bobbi Brown Brightening Blush – A review

February 18, 2017

Follow my blog with Bloglovin My love for the Bobbi Brown make up range was, in all honesty, confined to their eye shadows and palettes. Any purchase Iv made I have loved the colours and textures, and have never been dissapointed. I did try one of their lipsticks, and in truth, I wasnt a fan, but it could have been the colour that I didnt…

Afternoon Tea – One Aldwych

February 11, 2017

Its no secret, I love afternoon tea. I love everything about it, and my plan is to as experience as many as possible. I think my waistline may protest, but Im going to give it a go. (Have a look at another one I experienced in this post.) Recently, I treated my mum to afternoon tea at One Aldwych, the gorgeous hotel in the heart…
