Sudeley Castle - Spectacle of Light

. . . AND IT'S BACK. . . 
'Spectacle of Light'  at Sudeley Castle (nr Winchcombe, Gloucestershire), has for the 2nd year running opened its doors to the general public with its after-dark showstopping light display. With majestic trees, Moroccan laterns and new illuminated features cascading in / around the castle grounds and ruins, creating a magical feel, it certainly is an attraction worth visiting.

Get ready for Autumn / Winter 2017

As summer slowly drifts away, in creeps Autumn. I have to admit Autumn / Winter is not my favourite time of the year, purely because I hate the cold. But I do enjoy watching the leaves turn rustic red to warm brown, with the golden sun shining brightly. However with the switch in weather / season, this of course means revamping the skincare routine. Personally, my skin goes berserk; dry, tight and very dull, and as a result, I have to start introducing products which are moisturising and soothing for my skin.

Kind Natured Foaming Coconut and Monoi Sugar Scrub

*I HOLD MY HANDS UP* . . . .I am a sucker for a good body scrub product. If I see something in shops which is new and intriguing, guaranteed I will pick it up to try.
During my teens I never really was one for the whole body scrub; I found it too harsh / rough for my skin, but now as I am getting older, I simply cannot go a week without a good body scrub.

REVIEW: Weleda Arnica Massage Balm

After a hard Ballet class, without fail, I always ensure I am wrapped up reasonably well before I leave the studio, and when I get home I take a warm shower. By doing so ensures my muscles don't get cold and I avoid getting an injury. Once I am showered I then proceed to giving my muscles a good massage, releasing any tension / tightness. I tend to use Shea butter, mixed with Soap and Glory Righteous Butter, and whilst moisturising my skin I massage areas, such as calves, feet at the same time. Kill two birds with one stone! I found this was pretty effective, but I figured perhaps I should be using something which is more massage appropriate, containing oils which are beneficial to my muscles.

Jo Malone | Myrrh and Tonka Cologne Intense

I have been wearing the same perfume for many years (Chanel Coco Mademoiselle), and although I still love wearing it, I thought it was time to switch things up a bit. I am however incredibly fussy; I don't wear everything and anything or fragrances everyone seems to own.

Holiday Suitcase Essentials

As if we're almost half way through the year . . .scary, but exciting as we're into 'holiday season' (YAY). I LOVE this time of year; the sun is shining, lots of pretty clothes in shops, and everyone is generally is such a good mood. And of course many of us are planning / jetting off on fabulous holidays.

Memories with Dad

A car journey is often that . . a tedious boring journey, with the constant thought at the back of your mind ''Are we there yet?'' . . . words every child (and adult) has mumbled at some point in their lives.  But I bet some of those journeys have been eventful and entertaining? . . .well, I sure have had one or two, in particular with my Dad.
