If life gives you lemons ; suck away I say! Why? Well they’re great for the skin! And more

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.

Inside scoop;  2 rather gorgeous kind ladies who I’d be utterly lost without (you know who you are….Kerry and Alex!) bought me a lemon tree as a present for my birthday and as a cheer me up from them and my team, having not been well. 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.

V : for very, Very, VERY lovely : not ME for sure, the DRESS, oh the dress….

V for V V V VERY lovely dress alert from … easy … very.co.uk

Rating; I don’t really do ‘fashion’ per se, in fact my mum often says I’ve the style sense of a small squirrel, maybe not fair she doesn’t exactly say that, but she does say I have a ‘particular look’ not sure it’s properly a compliment!  But heck this time even she LOVED this dress and so do I…hurry hurry before it’s gone if you like it.

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…

I don’t normally use pics of myself either, but I just love this dress and felt better than I’d felt in ages in it, so here you go :).

Inside scoop;  Macarons ; why?  Why blog?  Well ok tell me something not to LOVE about this pillow like chewy meringuey mouth wateringly melty marvellous miniature treats.  That’s it really macarons for me (and my Macaron obsessed Mum and Daughter) aren’t guilt free, but are ‘manageable’ as a mini treat.  And they don’t come more fragrant and feast like than Pierre Herme’s gourmandise selection.
