LEARNING & GROWING…….. REFLECTING ON 2016

LEARNING & GROWING…….. REFLECTING ON 2016

You’re probably done with all the New Year’s hype kind of posts, but for me, my annual New Year getting-my-arse-into-gear doesn’t happen until today, 9th of January. Once Christmas is done, I always feel like we’re in some sort of Crimbo Limbo, just waiting for New Year’s Eve (thank goodness for my annual NYE party so that I have something…
DREAMS OF NYE AT PORTOPICCOLO

DREAMS OF NYE AT PORTOPICCOLO

So we're officially in "Chrimbo Limbo" as my friends like to call it. We're kind of done with all the excessive eating of Christmas, wishing we hadn't quite had that last mince pie, and looking forward to the freshness of the New Year to come with all its possibilities... but we're not really sure what to do with the time in-between.

5 Ways to Cope with Anxiety

As I sit here at my computer to start writing, I'm not even sure how I'm going to say what it is I want to say. Actually, I'm not even sure exactly what it is I want to say, so if you're not in the mood for a rambling kind of post, then feel free to click away to something…

Countdown to Christmas | #PartyReady | Slendertone

The Christmas party season is just around the corner, although judging by my instagram feed, it’s already arrived! For me, being party ready goes hand in hand with feeling fit and fabulous. So I up my skincare routine to allow for the fact I might be wearing more makeup than usual, making sure I’m super-scrupulous with double cleansing at night.…

#VBxEsteeLauder Makeup Collection – Want or Need?

These days, there's really not much I need to buy in the way of makeup. If I'm really honest (and what's a blog for if not for total honesty and coming clean), I not only have doubles of just about everything, I have triples and quadruples... oh heck, let's just say multiples! But sadly that doesn't stop me buying makeup, oh no!…

LUMITY Supplements – Two Month Update

A while ago I wrote about LUMITY supplements (click here to read what I had to say) and I promised to give you a little update along the way, so here a really quick little post two and a half months in.  I'm seeing a younger looking skin, more radiant and showing less fatigue and I feel that it's a little…

MAC Liptensity Lipsticks

It's no secret I love my lipsticks - just a quick read of this article from the Daily Mail (click here) will testify to my obsession. MAC lipsticks will always hold a special place in my heart - hours spent perusing the lust-inducing collections of lipsticks during my teens have shaped my lipstick dreams forever. I think I probably have just about every…
How to Inject a Little Comfort into your Everyday Style

How to Inject a Little Comfort into your Everyday Style

Although most style addicts would like to deny it, feeling good is just as important as looking good. This can be as simple as eating good, pure food to make your body work well, but it can, and often does, translate into fashion. So here are a few tips on what to do and what not to do when you’re trying to feel…
