A post about trying out a new day and night cream from Clarins
I wanted to write this last week, but of course, as I utter my most over-used words these days, I just haven't had the time. Days have seeped into nights and the whole weekend came and went in a blur of work and a 45 minute nap on Sunday which was most enjoyable until I was pounced upon … Continue reading Beauty, Art, Shopping: A Perfect Day
So today was an unexpected beauty day. I haven't had my eyebrows shaped professionally for years which is appalling I know, but they never looked too bad and I pluck the strays daily. I've always been a bit nervous of threading as it looks quite painful so have only ever had my eyebrows waxed. Anyway, … Continue reading To Thread or not to Thread?
So I really seem to be having an issue with meeting deadlines on this blog don't I? It's never the same when you're the one to set you're own schedule and then end up being far too relaxed about it. Rather like getting my own expenses done compared to when I was doing them for other … Continue reading Can Women Have it All?

I honestly don't know how people can have a blog that they update regularly, other jobs, kids...and a life! I read recently 3 women I admire greatly have that … Continue reading Buff, Exfoliate, Renew…whatever you want to call it
So, as mentioned in my post yesterday, I had my milia removed this afternoon. Amy at Lavender and Stone Beauty Rooms in Beaconsfield explained the process before she started. I was a little nervous as hadn't had electrolysis before. As I said in my last post, I have only ever had milia removed by a beautician manually … Continue reading Milia Removal – After
So I've suffered from Milia for years and have had them removed during a facial with a sterilised needle, but unfortunately that beautician moved away and facials since haven't included that procedure. I had quite a large one on the side of my nose which really bothered me, but one day it just popped out … Continue reading Milia Removal – Before
So our London summer has been pretty rubbish so far to say the least (although there has been some improvement this weekend) and when you can't get the glow naturally, a nice bronzer does the trick. This is something I wear all year round anyway, but tend to wear more obvious bronzers and put more on … Continue reading When there’s no sun, fake it
This blog actually started because of The Body Shop 'Drops of Youth' Concentrate which I had been looking at ages ago, used a sample for a few days and deliberated between that or really splurging on the Lancome Advanced Genefique Serum. In the end I used both as I got a great Genefique gift set in the … Continue reading How this all began…with a serum
