Fall for Fall ; a lipstick for all seasons & “Season Lip Anxiety” sufferers!

Fall for Fall ; a lipstick for all seasons

RatingI take it all back I’m just not ready for BERRY yet in fact I’ll confess I’m “seasonally confused”.  I’m not quite ready to switch to full knitwear, I’m still in some t-shirts but I have put my heating on twice now (shh don’t tell).  So what to wear ; on your lips. 

Inside scoop ; If you’re suffering from Seasonal Lip Anxiety SLA : ok yes you got me I DID just make that up…can I recommend middle of the road.  In colour terms.  Don’t go full on Berry Bold : do park the pink & bin the beige : settle for ‘neutral’…DON’T skimp on the texture…

It’s T time – Treat Try Tummy Tea TODAY!

It’s 5 T time : that stands for TREAT TRY TUMMY TEA TODAY!

Rating ; Tuesday = T-Time that stands for T for Treat Try tummy Tea; ok not STRICTLY a beauty product BUT I always feel if you look after the inside then the outside looks a bit better and certainly you FEEL better. So Tuesday’s Top TREAT is TEA. Herbal of course, high quality bien sur, beautifully designed but of course…

Inside scoop ; They say beauty is skin deep I say dig deeper TEA could just be the cure for all Tuesday ills and more.  And it doesn’t come more tasty tempting and tea-like than the quirky range from T2.  Discovered – well ok lured into – their store in Oxford Street I find myself T-eed up and ready to rave about T2.

Rating ; On a rainy Sunday, before kids go back to school, things can get a little MEH so here’s a product that will have you zen-like and labelling school uniform with a gentle smile in a heartbeat.  Don’t be Lavender Blue try a little Lavender oil.

Friday Feathery Fabulous

Fine, Feathery, Fabulous ; Friday finery ; check out these gorgeous earrings from cute niche US brand Shiver&Duke

Rating ; Feathery-fantastic-feeling-fine-for-Friday ok NOT strictly a beauty product but a beautifying FIND and a bit of Friday fun so I thought it counted.  Especially as earrings can make as much of a difference in lifting your look as a new lipstick, so I had to share these flirty-feathers.

Inside scoop; Shiver-me-timbers it’s Shiver & DukeShiver and Who I hear you say??? Well, I just discovered this cute little brand in a cool boutique where I live which have begun stocking it.  They called to me – loud – from their window.  I resisted, for about an hour, then rushed back and scooped them up.

What are they – straight up, unashamed ear candy of course.  This gorgeous range of feathery earrings are literally feather light meaning statement-heavy but NOT heavy-on-the ear. I wear them for day, most might possibly save them for night.
