FOR THE LOVE OF BEIGE (even if my life isn't)

FOR THE LOVE OF BEIGE (EVEN IF MY LIFE ISN'T !)

Going through my wardrobe thinking about what to wear I realised there's an awful lot of beige,Its either all beige or its got beige in it.
I think when we go on our little shopping trips, we're immediately drawn subconsciously to colours we love eg, that shirt, eyes drawn straight away to the beige one!
Don't get me wrong, I do have other colour's in my wardrobe, there's red,black,purple,and brown, but it will all go with the beige!
I do worry its all looking a bit boring but I think, neutral,beige,taupe and cream colour's do help soften our skin tone(at my age) its very easy to wear and you can add any colour's to it(even if these pictures are all beige!)

ESSEX ISNT ALL ABOUT "SHUT UP" YOU KNOW

The other day I received a book through my letter box from refined media called, Exquisite Essex



Exquisite Essex is the ultimate indulgence guide for guest and residents of Essex.
Now I spend half of my time between London and Essex and I couldn't resist the glossy pages.
What a great little hive of information this turned out to be!
It gives some great information for boutique hotels where to  shop, where all the great restaurants are,  even interesting places to take your children for days out.
I have to say the eat out section of this book is brilliant, I have found some new places to try myself.


Also listed are venues to hire for weddings ,parties and corporate events
Also listed are places to get pampered, be it a day or weekend stay,  and some great beauty retreats to visit for an hour or two.





For the men in your life,  there's fashion and places to get them sprused up too.
So if you're thinking of going to Essex for a day or staying a while, I recommend you look up Exquisite Essex, you can find them on Facebook or email them at refinedmedia.co.uk
I would love to hear from anyone who has found a special place in Essex, please write in the comments box

ITS NEVER TOO LATE TO START LOOKING AFTER YOUR SKIN !

From a young age (13) my mother started advising me on my skincare routine, taking me to different counters in stores that supplied all those beautiful jars and tubes of creams.Mother used to use, Charles Of The Ritz (does anyone remember this?) When i started my first Saturday job hairdressing, i saved my money and invested in some Yves Rocher (does anyone remember this?) And so my beauty routine evolved Cleanse, Tone,Moisturise.

The one piece of advise mother gave me that i did not  take notice of is MAKE SURE WHEN YOU MOISTURISE YOUR FACE, DON'T FORGET TO DO YOUR NECK AS WELL!

I used to take all the care over the routine and think it will be ok  and leave out my neck area.I am now paying the high price of not taking notice now, comparing the lines of my face to that of my neck, you can see the difference! I regret not listening.

It would be great to know some readers first skin care regimes and  regrets over skin care, so please let me know x
