Travelling = The Importance Of Skin Care

Travelling = The Importance Of Skin Care

Travelling is super tough on the skin and it means skin care becomes even more important.

Factor in dehydration from the long flight; a lack of sleep and over indulgence and the first place to suffer is the skin.
Trying to look fresh and rested, glowing and healthy is hard when your body is screaming and your face looks like it’s done ten rounds in the ring.

None of it really matters of course but when you catch up with friends, meet new ones and attend meetings it is natural to want to look your best.

Last time we spoke beauty I mentioned a serum I found in my French pharmacy.
Since then I have been using other products from their range and have to tell you I think I am onto something…

The Updo And The Don’t Do

The Updo And The Don’t Do

Do you wear an updo?

Is it ageing or elegant?

Coconut Crazy: The Beauty And Health Benefits

It would seem there is a trend and it is making us coconut crazy.

The more I read the more I want to go tropical; at least in the coconut sense.

Everywhere I turn I am reading the beauty and health benefits of the humble coconut.

The coconut is classified as a fruit, a nut and a seed so its potential is magnified before we even look heavenwards to the palm.

With Eyes Wide Open

With Eyes Wide Open

Twiggy was the definition of eyes wide open.

My eyes are not quite so wide open or so decorated but that doesn’t mean I don’t depend on a product or two.
au courant.

I wanted to ask you something?

I have this thing about the eyebrows.
I am perfectly content to persevere with the hair growing grey (well almost, I would be fibbing if I didn’t admit to some moments of indecision) but when it comes to my eyebrows that is another story.

I cannot have grey eyebrows.

They are confronting and I am sure they frighten everyone around me if a few sneak out to play. I like the look of silver hair and dark brows; the hair is natural but the eyebrows take work.

I really want to cut ties but we seem to wake up together every morning.
