September Empties

September Empties

Apologies for this being a bit late and there being a lot of empties – apparently I’ve used a lot up this month. I’ll try to be brief about each thing. Sanctuary Intensive Heel Balm – Best foot cream I seem to be able to find at the moment. Very hydrating and softening and I … Continue reading

August/September Favourites

August/September Favourites

The second October hit I seem to have acquired a cold. So, to distract me from how rubbish the wintery weather is* I’m going to reminisce about August and September with my favourites. Come with me on a journey, feel the warmth of the sun on your skin, hear the builder wolf-whistling at you in … Continue reading

Lifestyle post: Delicious magazine at BAFTA

I don’t normally write about things I’ve been to in my real life, but last Friday night I did something a little bit fancy and felt it might deserve a small post.

Blanx White Shock

Blanx White Shock

Impulse buy? Me? Never! OK, but it’s toothpaste that lights up! (well, the tube does. If the toothpaste did I’d be concerned about what they’d put in it). So this was on some kinda introductory offer in Boots and did I mention that it lights up? Yeah, so I had to have it. The reason … Continue reading

Eau Thermale Avene Cleanance SPF 30

This year I resolved I was going to start taking sun protection seriously. I was determined to find a good facial SPF and use it everyday to avoid turning into a wrinkly old prune.
