LAST week I spent a rather lovely day at Weleda HQ (UK). Which basically means I got to mooch around some of the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen and play with fabulous skin care products. Sounds heavenly huh? And indeed it was. But I warn you, if you’re not into flowers and plants and the like, you might want to pop by another day because this post is

NEW beauty products are coming out every day. So how the devil can we keep up with them all and figure out which ones we should be spending our money on and which ones we should avoid? Well, it’s tricky. Which is why I want to share with you a few beauty belters that I’ve come across over the past month which I think / (hopefully) know you are going

The best beauty products I’ve discovered over the past year (or so)

AH beauty products. They often promise so much yet deliver so little. However these little ‘beauties’ below are ones that you can rely on. Products that are the cream of an overflowing crop. Little belters that will most certainly help you feel and look amazing. In my humble opinion of course. Some of them have been sent to me by brands (I’m a fortunate woman that’s for sure) but most

BEAUTY may be more than skin deep but let’s face it we all look and feel better when our skin is looking its best. Besides the dreadful spotty teenage years, I’ve always been pretty happy with my skin. It’s generally been fine and has served me well.

I’ve always been a bookworm and although I don’t get nowhere near as much time as I’d like these days (who does?!) to sit down and curl up with a good read, over Christmas and New Year I did manage to work my way through a few belters. These books are so

SPONSORED POST: Smart women celebrate brains (as well as beauty)

AS women we may still be judged on our looks, but it’s our intelligence, wit, kindness and charm that will take us places. Yes, it’s great to look and feel our best, but there has to be substance to back up our style, there has to be more to us all than just meets the eye. Otherwise, well, what on earth is the point?! Intelligence, knowledge and wisdom are all

BEFORE I begin, I feel I need to point out that I am no expert at selfies nor do I think I take the best ones. There are far more qualified people than me (like your supermodels for example) who do it MUCH better however, as a few people have commented on my selfie portraits, I reckon by all accounts, I don’t do too bad a job. Or so Vicki
