A Life With Frills

Thursday, 2 October 2014


Nuxe Reve de Miel Hand & Nail Cream, Marks & Spencer, £10.50
This is a great basic and inexpensive hand cream to give your hands and cuticles and boost of moisture and protection. It isn't greasy and has a natural scent. It is great for using in fragile conditions as it was tested in an extremely cold Canadian climate. Acacia oil soothes and nourishes fragile skin, and the almond oil fortifies damaged tissue; so this is a perfect cream for harsh Winter months.

This has a great citrus and floral scent, and is a great maintenance hand cream for hands and nails. It contains moringa oil to maintain the elasticity of the skin and botanical oils to fade any colour imperfections; whilst keratin oil strengthens your nails. It is also packed with shea butter and avocado to moisturise your skin and cuticles. A great choice for Spring and Summer.

This one doesn't have all that pleasant a smell- very chemically. However, it is brilliant at plumping the skin on your hands, and filling in any small lines, to make them appear more youthful. It contains skin brighteners to improve appearance, and shea butter for moisturising. If I haven't been looking after my hands for a while, i'll reach for this first as it instantly hides and plumps any flaws.

At the moment, my living room is too dark, so I want to paint the walls cream; but still keep an eye-catching statement wall. All my accessories are 'shabby chic' in style, so i'm thinking a bird or a floral print. These are my favourites- which one would you choose?

I was tagged to do this by julie-ellen.com, so here goes...

1) What's your favourite beauty product?
I couldn't possibly pick one specific beauty product, so I'll pick a group- lipsticks. I like collecting them as they are pretty to look at and wear.

2) If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I've been to everywhere I really want to go, except for Los Angeles; so I'd go there. There's Disney, movie stuff, shopping, good food, warm weather...

3) What is your all-time favourite brand?
That's so hard to answer. My favourite high-street brand is probably Sleek MakeUP, as all their products are incredible quality. More high-end favourites are Bare Minerals and Urban Decay.

4) Do you collect anything, and if so, what is it?
I haven't added anything to it for about a year now; but I have an extensive collection of Disney pins (decorative enamel and metal badges) and Disney Vinylmations (decorated Mickey-shaped plastic ornaments).

5) Early bird or night owl?
Early bird. I more or less need matchsticks to keep my eyes open after 9pm, and I get most of my day's To Do List done between 6am and 8am.

6) Tea or coffee?
Always tea, never coffee. Milk and one sugar.

7) What is your favourite TV show?
Definitely ABC's Pretty Little Liars. As soon as I watched Season 1 Episode 1, I was hooked and watched up to the current Season 5 mid-season finale back to back. This show has everything!

8) If you could travel to any era, what would it be?
I think it would be the Victorian era- the time of Jack the Ripper, as I think it would be really exciting. I wouldn't walk about at night though, obviously.
