Adult Acne – have you tried Azelaic Acid?

No, I’d not head of Azelaic Acid myself until a few months ago – but I’m happy to spread the word far and wide every chance  get now! As regular readers know, I suddenly developed adult acne when I turned 40 – having completely ignored my skin my whole life, barely even breaking into a spot as a teenager, all of a sudden I couldn’t clear my skin. I tried everything. I used expensive cleansers and...

Fabulous Elephant Hobo Bag – perfect casual summer bag and UNDER £7!

Every summer I’m on the hunt for the perfect casual summer bag – the one I can grab for a day at the beach, the park or a daytime explore around a city. Yes it needs to hold my essentials like phone, wallet keys etc, but it needs to be big enough to hold the summer necessities – water, sunglasses, sun cream, notebook, rolled up sun hat. It’s handy if it’s a cross-body style that leaves my hands free...

Spotted! It’s A Gorgeous Hare Mug. *happy face*

It’s no secret round here that we love a good mug. Possibly less well-known is that I have a bit of a thing for hares. Especially mad-eyed, scrappily visualised artistic ones (the March Hare I spotted in this post currently hangs on my bedroom wall, making me smile every day). So letting out a little “Oooh!” at this hare mug when I saw it on Etsy wasn’t terribly surprising. Isn’t it a beauty? I love the...

Win a £130 Tea Bundle (that’s 400 cups of tea!) from Adagio Tea. Oh yes.

Tea. It’s not secret round here that I love the stuff. And like so many things in life, I’ve grown a little more selective in my old age. Once I thought tea only came in packs of 240 small white bags (unless you were at Granny’s house. She messed around with a pot and a strainer and there were always little black bits floating in it like dead ants… and not in a  good squashed-flies- Garibaldi-biscuits way). But...
