It’s been a busy few months since I posted my last blog! Between my book launch, beauty judging and consulting along with some exciting new brands, projects, live TV appearances and exciting offers like the upcoming one from Liz Earle – time has just flown by!
While I am thrilled that some of my consultancy projects are finally able to happen to face to face, between my busy work schedule and businesses using my consulting services, I needed another horse for having some downtime (dog walking and riding for me, are what make me tick and keep me relaxed). So, here’s welcoming Blue to our family – an Irish Draught sports horse who has fitted in very well so far…
With so many of us now able to see family and friends and starting to go back to work in this new normal way of living, one thing I’m sure you, like myself, have not welcomed back is the traffic! It seems to be worse than ever so my top tip is to use that time effectively. I do work calls, use it as thinking time or try a different radio station or even an audio book to make the several hours feel like a joy rather than a chore.
Thank you for all your great reviews and messages on my book, do keep them coming!
Now is the time at a season change to re-evaluate your beauty routine and prioritise your next three months of products and makeup. If you haven’t already done so you can buy this fantastic skincare collection from Liz Earle here. It’s great as a feel-good gift for a friend too.
This collection is perfect for a top to toe makeover, including a sensorial bathing experience! It not only includes the three core essentials – Cleanse and Polish, Instant Boost Skin Tonic and your choice of Skin Repair Moisturiser but also has three fragranced body products in the Bourbon Vanilla and Clove Bud Body Wash and Body Cream. Both inspired by botanical essence No.15 EDP with a lovely bag.
It’s certainly a treat to lock yourself in the bathroom with an inspiring drink! I like to choose ones to go with the fragrances, so I made a long rum cocktail with vanilla, clove, strawberries, mint, and lavender from the garden. The No.15 has has a different, almost comforting cashmere aroma when combined with the Bourbon Vanilla and Clove. It really does have different aroma on individuals and a softness when combined with the Bourbon Vanilla and Clove Bud Body treatment. Do join my live over on the Liz Earle Instagram page tonight at 6pm with Sarah to celebrate this great brand.
