Morning! I’m not quite sure how Saturday managed to fly by so damn quickly but here we are, with a week of half-term (and Halloween!) stretching ahead of us. Leila hasn’t been settling in to nursery too well and things came to a head this past week so I, for one, will be pleased to give her a week in which to recharge her batteries, gather as many cuddles as she needs and emerge the other side feeling a little more capable of facing all these new challenges, hopefully.
Now, on with the summary of bits and pieces that didn’t fit in to this week’s scheduling!
1. This video from Eve Lom demonstrating how to use their iconic cleanser… is a bit duh obvious (massage it in, wipe it off) but I really liked the visual demonstration of some of the lymphatic drainage techniques you can easily incorporate into your routine. Check it out below…
2. U.S. beauty brand Smashbox are taking the UK by storm as they launch into Boots nationwide – even my local store has stock (and that never happens!). If your nearest store has its finger slipping from the pulse, not to worry – you can still check out the brand’s latest products online at boots.co.uk. I’m itching to get down to my local store and get a colour match for the Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation. Hydrating foundation in this weather? Yes please! What are your favourite Smashbox products?
3. I had to share this product image from new luxury brand on the block, Mila. Doesn’t it look beautiful? Apart from being one letter away from my favourite brand of chocolate, Mila’s fragrances have been two years in development and their debut Scuro scent promises a lovely warm, spicy fragrance, with earthy tones of clove bud, frangiapani, vetiver and moss – the perfect Christmas gift? Available now from milafragrance.com
4. Finally, We had a little Halloween party on Friday night. It involved two under 10s, a never-ending supply of Monster Munch and enough Appletiser to make a 3-year old quite, quite giddy with excitement. I’m not into trick-or-treating, so instead we watched Scooby Doo and stayed up ’til almost midnight (and paid the price the next day).
There may also have been a pumpkin (or two) involved.
Hope you’ve had a lovely weeked, tell me… what are your plans for the spookiest night of the year?
