If life gives you lemons…don’t make lemonade … turn them in a beauty therapy which packs a punch!

Rating; luscious, lovely, like-able, lively, live-longer, LEMONS ; who knew the humble LEMON had so many beauty uses & health benefits…I didn’t until now.

So at first I thought err ok erm thanks (and inside my head EEK EEK EEK how the hell am I going to keep THIS alive : see Facebook fake cactus post, I digress!).  BUT then I read the letter it came with :

Mmm M&S vs. V-ery…easy : hands down VERY

V for V V V VERY lovely dress alert from … easy … very.co.uk and so no to the Stars I’m afraid…

Rating; A short P.s to my last post here….well also a mini rant. So if it were currently iconic High Street dress. vs iconic High Street dress…just to reassure you : so NO on ‘the’ Star dress.

Inside scoop;  M&S do alot of things brilliantly but nothing annoys me more than a dress selling out before I can even get it,  in fact selling out twice. I appreciate that’s the whole intention of Limited Edition.  But frankly I just find it annoying.  That is all.

Inside scoop;  Of course fashion’s a very personal thing, one girls super chic is another girls ‘OMG-so no-eek’.  But I did feel I needed to share this very Very VERY nice dress from….erm can you guess Very!  What’s more it’s my first EVER purchase from them. Pretty sure it won’t be my last…
