If you are a follower of mine on instagram, this blog post will be of no suprise to you! If not, you're already missing out on my most fave item of clothing-possibly ever- I am O B S E S S E D. I have wanted one of these for an age and Mothers Day was the perfect excuse for me to grab one. So what have I worn with it? Literally everything! I kid you not I have worn it everyday this week-no shame.

Dressed down or up, it is all kinds of awesomeness! Grab one for yourself HERE ....but be quick they are selling quick!

Beauty is skin deep.... Multi-Vit Q10 Day and Night Set

I will be the first to admit that my routine of late has meant that my skin has taken a hit. Too little sleep, kids on full steam, work on full steam and wine in the mix has not been great. I have however for the last two weeks been reviewing a new day and night cream. I was dubious on these from the get go as my skin is sensitive and stroppy, if it doesn't like what I feed it, it kicks off!

So what is the cream? It's a fancy doo dah Q10 jobby (yep my experience on skin care is thin on the ground), to be exact a Multi Vit Q10 Day and Night Set.  The below extract gives you some idea of the benefits to using the creams and why I thought I would give it a go.

So what did I think?  Well first off my skin agreed, so already I knew that I was on to something good for myself. There were no strong notes of fragrances which meant nothing was going to irritate me and make me look like I have hives. My make up sits nicely on the Day Cream and I have no oily issues. I have lost "dry patches" so that in itself makes my make up look a tad better too! In terms of the collagen, have I noticed that the "I've hit the 30s catergory" lines setting in have plumped? Uhmm not especially, as I have been too busy to study my face BUT now I come to think of it, actually yes slightly so, my skin certainly looks and feels better.




So would I recommend the set? Yes absolutely.

At £25.90 for the two creams, you are on par for other Q10 products and I have only just seemed to scratch the surface of the product so this is going to last for a while.


Q10 Day and Night Cream Set from Pharma Nord provides a complete 24 hour moisturising treatment. Q10 Skincare set includes the Q10 Revitalizing Day Cream and the Q10 Revitalizing Night Cream.

London Fashion Weekend with Canon

So London fashion week pretty much takes over and it is coming to an end this weekend. As a pretty fashion and London lover it's pretty insane that it has taken me up until now to even get to the shows. However the uber lovely Canon crew changed that for me and I was picked as 1/4 to go along to a show, learn a bit about photography, Canon and be in the photographers pit. Pretty awesome right?



Outnet had the trend show on and below is a bit of a taster as to what to expect, but if you are as addicted to magazines as much as I am, then you will be pretty clued up that Monochrome, Metallic's, Floral's and the 70s are having a moment!

I had and absolute blast, the camera was amazing, the clothes were amazing and after all this fun I shot off to meet my crazy bunch of blogger friends. All in all a pretty awesome weekend!

The wide leg

I haven't let go of my wide legs since they were last in fashion, so here we go again. River Island have some amazing stripe wide legs which I am pretty sure will sell out as fast as they hit the stores, seeing as every magazine has coveted them. They are not online as of yet but these Topshop ones give you an idea.....

Not only are the wide legs flattering, they are super comfy too. All hail the wide leg!

sunday

Sunday has to be my favourite day, especially when the husband is off. A day to relax and recharge. A day to take the children for fresh air and some culture.

Alas today he is not and I have a very busy working week ahead, but with my boy cuddled up next to me poorly and my eldest perched on the end making minions with loom bands, I have an even better excuse of staying in bed. Its almost 11am and my lazy self has half dressed, grabbed my coffee, has my white company candle burning, has my new magazine and phone to hand. A lazy sunday morning.

This time has been years coming, gone are the days of having to get up at 6am, feed the toddlers and watch re runs of peppa pig, all the while dreaming of when things are lazier. Those days are very fast vanishing and the times of lazy sundays have begun.

My only issue now is the tower of washing that needs attention and the catch up of neglected housework from

the week. It occurred to me recently just how much life has changed this past year and seemingly without me realising til now.

Quite often reflection only comes when you don't expect it too. Suddenly realisation dawns on you and you get thinking. As a person and as a team we are reaching our aims that seemed unachievable such a short time ago. It drives us forward ever more and helps me realise just how powerful ambition and passion can be. Seven years back I could not imagine how our lives could be right now and yet here I am trying to figure how I pack this tiny suitcase for 3 days away working in malaga. My hair products are taking a hit! We may not have it all, but we are able to have treats, for me my camera, for him his watche, for my children fulfilment.

Where will we be in another year? Who knows. For now I shall enjoy my bed for a few more minutes until the need to crack on with housework becomes too stong to bypass.
