How much is my face worth?

In all the time I've been blogging I've never got round to the "How much is my face worth?" post - there just doesn't seem to have been time. Now when it's much too hot to be out shopping and I've got a few hours to myself it feels like the perfect time to sit… Continue reading How much is my face worth?


Feeling the Benefit

Those that know me well will know that I can be stubborn. If everyone is saying that you just have to try something then I'll be the one that's cynical and thinking that it's all marketing hype and refusing to consider it.

Consumers can be fickle - what's the brand of the moment one day can be off the menu the next. In social media we flit from one platform to the next.

Empties – May 2015

These last few days I've been playing catch up in several areas of my life. At work I've been trying to get to the bottom of my pile of e-mails; at home I've been trying to catch up with the washing and ironing and on the blog I need to finish a lot of posts.… Continue reading Empties – May 2015


What’s on my face #3

I started off this morning thinking that it might be a good idea to try out my new La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL BB Cream as it's the weekend and I could get away with a bare-faced look as I won't be in the office. Then I got to thinking maybe I could try out one… Continue reading What’s on my face #3
