All good things must come to an end, including the most wonderful long weekend in Paris. We spent our last evening in Montmartre, in the area around our hotel, which far surpassed my expectations. The lovely Terrass Hotel, which is a stone's throw away from Montmartre cemetery (we could see... Continue reading

Our second full day in Paris was just as busy as the first. We had intended to visit both the Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay in one day, but after a few hours in the Louvre we realised you need the best part of a day to do it justice,... Continue reading

After spending our first full day in Paris walking around in the heat and climbing the hundreds of steps up the Eiffel Tower it was time for some fun and relaxation! We soon found ourselves back at the tower for a cruise on the Seine which was the perfect way... Continue reading

Paris is without doubt my favourite city and so when it came to celebrating my birthday (it was a big one!) there was only one place I wanted to go. I'd been unable to do all the touristy things on my previous trips to the city as I'd been there... Continue reading

Today's beauty review may seem a little out of season but if you've ever tried a product from Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour range you'll know they are all-year-round beauty staples. I bought this kit around Christmas time when it was on offer for just £16, which is an absolute steal.... Continue reading

I have to confess that today's outfit has a specific purpose, namely the chance to win a night away at a lovely hotel in the Cotswolds and a pair of glasses. To enter the Graphite Green Lenses competition, which has featured on wiwt.com, I had to choose something green to... Continue reading

On warm summer days when I'm struggling to find something to wear (yes it still happens even with a wardrobe that's bursting at the seams!) I often pull out these trousers. They feel lovely and silky and are so comfortable to wear. Extremely versatile, they are smart enough for work... Continue reading

Following on from my last post, this is the other Murad gift set I received for Christmas. I'd been saving the Essential-C Day Moisture for my holiday as it's just the right size for travelling as well as being the ideal moisturiser for hotter climates. The texture is light and... Continue reading

The Murad Complete Renewal set was one of two I got for Christmas, and as we're now well into the Summer I feel as though I've had ample time to test it out thoroughly! The Hydro Dynamic Ultimate Moisture and eye cream were only small pots so I got through... Continue reading

Skirt, top and shoes: M&S The story behind today's outfit is a bit like a fairy tale. No really, it is. Stick with me on this one. You see I bought the skirt in a sale at Marks and Spencer, and even though I wasn't really sure about it (you... Continue reading

I have to admit, when it first appeared in the glossies the sports luxe trend wasn't something I immediately wanted to try, but it has slowly grown on me. I suppose as with any trend, it's a matter of finding a way to adapt it to your own style and... Continue reading

Looking back through my recent holiday photos I realised I'd forgotten to post this outfit. This dress is a little awkward to get into but once it's on it feels great and drapes in all the right places. The black and white stripes make a change from all the floral... Continue reading

Today's post is of an outfit I wore on holiday recently. I've had this dress for ages but this is the first time I've worn it. It's perfect for a warm evening as it's sheer but has a separate thigh-length camisole underneath to avoid showing next week's washing! I only... Continue reading

It's not often I get such a fabulous backdrop for an outfit post. From the ruins of Beeston Castle in Tarporley you can see eight counties on a clear day, which more than makes up for the steep climb! I was glad I wore my trusty flat boots because you... Continue reading

I recently visited the lovely city of Chester for the first time and was bowled over by the beautiful buildings and spectacular cathedral. With Spring hopefully around the corner it was also a last chance to wear one of my favourite winter coats and my sale bargain from Asos -... Continue reading

Just before Christmas I picked up a few bargains in the Body Shop sale. I was eager to try the lip liners as in my teens and early twenties the Body Shop's lip pencil in Beech was one of my makeup essentials. While beauty editors were raving about Mac's Spice... Continue reading

Finding a fragrance that you really love and never tire of is almost as tricky as finding the perfect pair of jeans. When I'm on the hunt for a new perfume I usually try lots of testers until I narrow it down to a few and then go back and... Continue reading

I recently received this lovely gift set as a freebie for subscribing to Glamour magazine. Murad is a brand I'd been wanting to try for some time so when this set was offered as a subscription incentive I didn't need to think too hard about it - magazines at a... Continue reading

Today's post is all about a lovely skincare range I stumbled upon at my local artisan market which comes to town every month. Now, I have to confess that I've become so fixated with the big skincare brands that I don't usually give smaller unknown ones a second thought, but... Continue reading

There's something very satisfying about warm and sunny autumn days. The leaves are changing colour, the humidity of summer has been replaced with a freshness, and the knowledge that winter isn't far away makes me appreciative of any sunshine. As the monthly artisan market was in town at the weekend... Continue reading

One of the first things you have to do when you move to a new area is check out the shopping opportunites (or maybe that's just me). So after driving by it on the way to work on numerous occasions it was time for a trip to the Trafford Centre.... Continue reading

As we move out of summer and into autumn it's time to reflect on all the lovely things about the passing season. The sunflowers in our garden have to be one of the highlights of my summer. Yellow is such a happy colour, yet I avoided wearing it for so... Continue reading

After a long, hard week at work it was nice to go out for Sunday lunch followed by a trip to the park with the little one for a bit of play time. Weekends seem to go way too fast. Having recently moved to a new area we're still finding... Continue reading

I have to admit that it feels a bit weird to be wearing "holiday" clothes at home, not that I'm complaining of course! I bought this dress from a little shop in Glenelg, Adelaide when we were there to watch the Ashes test match back in 2010, and with the... Continue reading

Back in December when I was doing my Christmas shopping I took advantage of a special offer at the Estée Lauder counter - all this for just £50 with any fragrance purchase! I wanted to try the products out over a period of time before posting a review, hence the... Continue reading
