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

My daughter loves the Three Billy Goats Gruff. When I've finished reading it she tells me the story and does all the voices.
Having frizz-prone hair I'm a big fan of serums. That said, not all have the desired effect - some are too gloopy and weigh my hair down making it feel limp and a bit greasy. When I received a full sized Dr Organic Argan Oil Hair Treatment Serum in the... Continue reading

Photo courtesy of Tattooed Tea Lady Back in October I had the pleasure of meeting up with a group of lovely beauty bloggers for a spot of shopping and talking about fashion and beauty (you can see the post here). We all agreed that we must make it a regular... Continue reading

I don't know about you, but one of the make-up items I can't live without is the eyeliner pencil. Over the years I've tried so many, as well as dabbling with gel and liquid liners and occassionally using a dark eyeshadow for a smoky effect. Without a doubt though I... Continue reading

Spring must be here because I could actually stand outside without my coat and not shiver with cold. As long as the sun was out that is - the moment it disappeared behind a cloud I was back indoors. That said, this dress is quite warm as it's double-layered. Some... Continue reading

It may officially be Spring but it sure doesn't feel like it. If like me you're getting a bit impatient now for the weather to warm up, we can at least console ourselves that one of the big trends for this season is black and white. It's not the colour... Continue reading

After a crazy few months of starting a new job involving a 200 mile round trip commute (not to mention trying to sell a house and buy another) I was well and truly ready for a break. Having been to Brittany several times before I thought I was fully prepared... Continue reading

When I bought this Zara skirt in the January sales I wasn't sure how, when or where I was going to wear it but I knew I had to have it all the same. I thought it might feel too unstructured for a night out but the leather-look lace might... Continue reading

It's been said many times that the British high street is the best in the world, and who can argue with that? Whistles and River Island have just made their London fashion week debut, while Topshop Unique has been a regular since 2001. H&M will also make their Paris fashion... Continue reading

Spring can't come soon enough for me but one of the positives about the cold weather (and let's face it, there aren't many) is wearing a fabulous snuggly faux fur coat. I scored another Matalan bargain with this one - reduced to £22! I absolutely love it - it's so... Continue reading

Just a quick post from the weekend and the outfit I wore to lunch at the local pub. The snow looks so pretty but it was freezing cold and I couldn't wait to get indoors! Wearing the hat was more of an attempt to stop my hair going frizzy than... Continue reading

I've been using Lancome's Teint Idole Ultra foundation for a number of years and for me it struck just the right balance of long-lasting coverage without being too heavy or thick. I have to admit that when I recently went to the Lancome counter to repurchase it I was in... Continue reading

There's nothing more sartorially festive than a bright red coat (I'm ignoring the Christmas jumper trend on the grounds it'll be distinctly naff by mid January) and so what better occasion to wear it than a trip to town for some Christmas shopping? I'm having to restrain myself quite a... Continue reading
