Acne Problems - Quinoderm 5

Tuesday, 15 April 2014

I never used to suffer from acne but since having my children, I seem to periodically be riddled with it.  It was becoming very sore and blotchy - very disheartening so bit the bullet and took myself off to see my GP.  Alas, there is something that could be done.  Apparently mine is due to the hormonal changes my body has gone through over the years and the Doctor prescribed this cream to me - Quinoderm 5, which is completely designed to treat acne.  I used to swear by Sudocrem but this is the real Mccoy.

If this didn't do the trick she said, then I was to go back and get a steroid based cream.

Win a Hamper of Laurens Way Treats

Tuesday, 8 April 2014

Laurens way tan is absolutely gorgeous and I can highly recommend the new 'Darker than Dark' solution which leaves your skin looking gorgeously golden.  You simply spray the tan directly on to your skin, or the way I prefer to do it - directly onto a mitt, before buffing it into the skin.  The results are really pretty - golden legs, time to dig those skirts out.

Spring Tips

Monday, 7 April 2014

Spring is here...

How do you move on from Winter?  Here are some ideas. 

Body Buff

Keep your skin looking fresh and healthy with a weekly exfoliation.  I like to use the Body Shop Pink Grapefruit body scrub on my body and the Exfoliator Cleanser from their Seaweed range.  This gives your skin a weekly pick me up and a great start to the weekend.  

Smile

Think about your lipstick, let us brighten up our faces with a pretty pink or coral.  I am currently loving my MAC 'Candy Yum Yum'. It makes me feel happy.  


Clear it

Gut your wardrobe!  Be ruthless, if you haven't looked at it in 6 months get rid of it.  Bag it up and donate it to your local Oxfam.  Someone will get the benefit from it - also gives you an excuse to go shopping!  

Running for CLIC Sargent | Children's Cancer Charity

Tuesday, 1 April 2014

Some of you may be aware that this year I am setting myself a challenge to partake in as many 5Ks as I can muster.  My first ever race will take part at Balmoral Castle on the 26th of April with the second shortly following on 11th May.  

The first charity I'm running for is the children's cancer charity -  CLIC Sargent.  I chose CLIC Sargent because as a mum, the thought of this terrible disease breaks my heart. I can only but imagine what families going through this terrible ordeal must be feeling.   Running a 5k is nothing compared to this. 



I'd be grateful of any donation you could muster and your support means a lot.  If you would like to sponsor 'Wobbly Bits' this is the link www.virginmoneygiving.com/team/wobblybits

Crown Brush Makeup Tools

Wednesday, 19 March 2014


Makeup tools - can't get enough of them.  

When it comes to the 'specific' uses of make up brushes I kind of like to make my own rules -  what works for me doesn't necessarily work for everyone else.  A while ago the lovely people over at Crown sent me some tools to try out and I have picked for you today, some of my favourites.
