French Splurge

French Splurge

So, as I mentioned in my last post I was in France last week.  It wasn’t a glamorous holiday, alas, but a few days spent helping my dad do plastering.  I also had the most traumatic experience when a worm fell from the ceiling into my cleavage.  Worst.

My handcream collection

My handcream collection

I don’t know about you but I really suffer with dry hands.  In the winter they get so dry they crack and bleed and it’s really painful.  They also get bad if I do a lot of washing up or washing the car, so I have become a bit of a handcream junkie.  These are … Continue reading
