Feeling Blue?? Ralph Lauren Blue Eau de Parfum Review

I came across a perfume recently that has brought back all sorts of memories and I thought I would share it with you – in light of my recent discussion about how perfume can raise all sorts of emotions, I felt it was only fair that I backed up what I thought with some actual examples! I realise that my blog has gone a little bit perfume heavy – I can assure you that even though I work for a perfume (& beauty product) based company I don't want anyone to get bored – in fact I went so far

Judgement Day…..Every Day?

I overheard a conversation in the gym this morning that I had to bring to your attention – I find the gym a fascinating place for all kinds of weird and wonderful anecdotes – I appear to have made friends and say hello to people even though I don't know their name – and it is shortly after 7am too! P is lucky if I say good morning to him at that time however it is somehow deemed acceptable to have pleasantries over a hairdryer in the Ladies changing room. Anyway the question posed between these two ladies was “What

The Perfect Perfume Winter Wonderland Part 2

Sleighbells ring, are you list'nin? In the lane snow is glist'nin.....a beautiful sight we're happy tonight, walking in a Winter Wonderland.......I am so so so looking forward to Yuletide and after a recent trip to the Christmas Markets for a mulled wine (and to plan a 5 course tea sampling all the delights the next time we go!) then I am feeling very festive.  One of the things I am looking forward to the most is snuggling up in front of the fire with P & O and having some quality time on my sofa. You know what, nothing tickles

OPI – The new OMG

As you may have come to realise I am rather a fanatic about nail varnishes. I love them – when I was growing up I used to love painting my mum’s nails, and as a special treat I would occassionally be allowed to have mine done. I always dreamt of being one of those pretty women who wore posh suits, carried an expensive looking bag and went to get their nails done regularly at a salon. Life hasn’t worked out quite like that – I don’t wear the posh suit, carry an expensive looking bag (it is designer though so

Once they Pop, you won’t Stop!

Hello, Good Afternoon and Welcome to my world! How are you enjoying the blogs so far? I think its probably time for a catch up – shall we meet for coffee and biscuits one day soon? You can tell me what you think and I can make any changes to make it more enjoyable for you? Or you can just leave me your thoughts / opinions below – don't forget! Anyway, bet you're wondering what this blog is going to be about? Sadly it isn't about the benefits and drawbacks of making your own popcorn or even my favourite Pringles

The Perfect Perfume Winter Wonderland

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells.......Jingle All the Way.....Oh What Fun it is to Ride on a One Horse open Sleigh........*continue humming* .....thinking about that song and my wish list its a good job that Santa has now upgraded his transport options as one horse would NOT be enough to pull all my presents!  Not that I am materialistic, I promise you I'm not - it just so happens that I have been a very, very good girl!  Honest! So anyway, hello my lovely readers how are you today?  Well and warm I hope?  Have you got anything nice planned for the

D-I-Y 5 Step Facial

Hello, Good Afternoon and welcome!!  How are you on this slightly-warmer-than-it-has-been Wednesday afternoon??  Wish the weather would make up its mind what it wants to do - one minute I'm in 2 pairs of leggings, pyjamas, dressing gown and a duvet until the heating kicks in - the next thing is that I'm sitting here wishing I had worn ballerinas instead of boots because my feet are too hot!  In November!  Perhaps its me that is extreme, not the weather....hmmmmm...... In any case if you read my blog on Monday entitled 'It's Party Time' then you'll see that I promised

It’s Party Time!!

Well a very Good Afternoon to you, my lovely Ladies and Gentlemen!  How are you?  Did you have a nice weekend?  Who did what then?  I had a fun filled but hectic weekend - think I finished doing my last job around 9pm last night - I did manage to have a little bit of fun in between!  Oooooh I've had my hair done -  Do you like it?  Had a bit of shape and style put back into it and highlights - needed it brightening up as I am starting my festive party season this coming weekend!   I

Penny Pinching – How to save on your nails

Hello, hello!! How are you?? Fine and dandy I hope!! I'm slightly annoyed thanks for asking – why? Well I've just been chatting to a very dear friend of mine who I do adore and love, madly....I promise – but I'm slightly jealous of how much she can afford to go out and get done.  What I mean by that is nails, facials, waxing, eyebrow tinting, you name it she'll probably be having it done. Who doesn't love a bit of pampering? I mean I do as much as the next girl (yes you!!) and on every pay day I
