"The way you treat yourself sets the standard for others." Sonya Friedman


wedding dress: BHLDN

What a couple of weeks it's been.

My body doesn't do a common cold.  When a virus swirls around it takes a violent hold of my body and everything must go on hold.  I've learnt to listen to my body.  Whereas before I would have battled through it, now I know to rest and cancel ALL my commitments.

I took that opportunity to take a proper break and disconnect.  And read the pile of books I've had on my bedside table all year.  This year has been such a blur.  Christmas decorations are already in full swing in the department stores.  I'm just not ready!

From time to time I am sent samples of various things to try.  I'm honest in everyday life (some might say too honest), therefore I'm no different when it comes to my blog.  If I don't like something I won't feature it here.

A few weeks ago I was sent some samples of Mask in a Cup.  My skin is pretty good right now, so I can't comment on any problems that the mask may fix, but my skin was very soft and supple after I used it.  What I loved about these masks is that they are hygienic and easy to use, mix with water and throw out the cup when you're done. No sticking fingers in a jar once a week for 6 months.

(Please note I have NOT been paid to mention this product, it is an honest, unbiased opinion)

But the product I really loved is the Konjacu Fibre Sponge.  Wow!  When I'm wearing make up I have used it with cleanser to remove all traces of it perfectly.  When I'm not wearing make up, I wash my face with just water and the sponge.  I cannot believe how soft and clear and radiant it's been.  And such a bargain too. Will definitely be purchasing this one.

I have a commitment free weekend for the first time in months.  Cannot wait to tackle my recipe folder and sort through the pile of magazines threatening to take over the study. And enjoy a long breakfast, a pot of tea and Smurfs in 3D.

    Hey there! I know this is somewhat off-topic however
    I needed to ask. Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take a lot of work?
    I'm completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary everyday. I'd like to start a blog so I
    can share my own experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog
    owners. Thankyou!

    Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I
    get four emails with the same comment. Is there any
    way you can remove people from that service? Many thanks!
