i'm no beauty expert but.......

these are a few of my favourite things. I do love trying new stuff! I'm a pretty low maintenance/basic skincare kinda gal! When I discovered Caroline Hirons a couple of years back I picked up a tip that literally revolutionised my morning and evening routine, I'm now a double cleanse/hot cloth devotee and still often refer back to CH's cheat sheets. This in turn has made a lot more receptive to trying out new treatments. I recently jumped at the chance to try out some Glamglow products as I'd heard such raving reviews about their masks. I have not been disappointed! Their YouthMud tinglexfoliate treatment is amazing. It does in fact make your skin tingle. You spread it over your visage and it harden as it drys. You remove it after about 10 minutes, I did so with a hot flannel. My face felt refreshed and zingy. The next morning my skin felt firmer and my make-up went on more smoothly! I'm sold......I'll warn you....you could become addicted!!

autumn updates!

Just an update on a few wardrobe acquisitions.....I've been a bit tardy on the blogging front of late as I haven't been feeling all that inspired recently. I've been trying to steer clear of the Insta-famous purchases however I have succumbed to this gorgeous Warehouse teddy coat. It's a trend piece for me and likely to be a bit of a one season wonder but I did think it would make a great wardrobe updater especially as I am favouring the neutral tans, camel and beiges at the moment. I'm about to have a huge coat cull as there are a few in my wardrobe that I've just become bored of....this coat will breathe some new life into my winter outfits.....and it's a bit of fun.

these boots were made for walking!

Now I am lucky enough to have this lovely brand right on my doorstep. Seven Boot Lane have just the one store situated in Milsom Place in Bath. They are mainly an online footwear business which you may be familiar with if you spend a lot of time flicking through Instagram! I took myself along to the store recently to check out their A/W17 and I took a few photos to bring you a little virtual tour......

'tis gifting season!

I love this time of year! A rather large factor is that it's my birthday early in October. Yup.....and I still get excited about it even though I'm hurtling towards that half a century! I have a huge lust list....but as the festive season is in the not too distant future so I have a cunning plan. I can roll this list over! ;0) Maybe it will give you a few gift ideas for your Christmas wish list too!
Kicking off with these beauties. A funny time to purchase sunnies I know, but these are rather spendy (though I may hang on and see if I can pick them up in a House of Fraser 20% off event) but I saw my gorgeous friend Michelle wearing a pair of Prada's a few weeks back and I've been lusting over them ever since.
