I often wake up looking a bit like a zombie and when that happens it tends to be on mornings when I don’t have a lot of time to get ready. I thought I would share my go-to make-up look when I need to look alive but feel half-dead.

Cinderella Again

When a day that feels truly magical comes along I suppose we seldom expect another day quite as extraordinary to grace us with its presence in the future. I, however, was given the opportunity to relive one of the most wonderful days of my life in a new dress, at a new venue and in a different car as my carriage for the evening.

Striped Skirt - Nadine Blewett

The fact that stripes are involved in this outfit is likely no surprise to anyone who knows me well but my current obsession with midi skirts is certainly new and I suspect it won’t be making an exit anytime soon.

Am I a shopaholic

I have always been an impulsive spender. If I saw something I liked and had the money for it I would buy it without considering what else I might need to buy before receiving more money. For that reason, I always thought of myself as a shopaholic but this month has forced me to question whether or not I am one.

Bioderma Atoderm Nutritive Nourishing Cream

My skin is incredibly fussy. It’s like a naughty child who wants something very specific and refuses to settle for anything other than that one thing. If I use the wrong product it protests in a major way.
