Beth (Style Guile) had just invested in some products after being advised so at a beauty counter. After being left with a rash (and returning the said products) she is left sceptical about the beauty business. So I thought I would photograph some of my trusted favourites. I mostly go on recommendations and magazines reviews as I believe them to be un-bias. 'Look' magazine always do a review on products and use readers to test them. Failing that some larger boots have sample sizes next to products or I just ask for the samples! Here are some of my favourite facial products.
Sue (Susie So So) recently shared her day outfit, being jeans, jumper and scarf combo, she likes to keep it real! So in a bid to be real back, here is my school run look from Friday. My age old skinnies from Gap, I don't feel like they make them the same these days. A Banana Republic jumper I found at a sample sale for £5. As it is a v neck I put my Temperly Panther scarf around to keep out the cold. Finished with my my old faithfuls, Timberland boots. These have worn so well, they look better with age. Had they been reduced sufficient enough in the black pair, I would have bought them again. Looking back I think I definitely should have worn my darker jeans but needs must (as in 'clothes') when your rushing yourself and two kiddies out the house for school in the morning!
Avril (School Gate Style) has made a New Years Resolution to remember to put her eye cream on before bed. I have my night creams right next to my bed ready to apply before I sleep. I am religious with doing them, I like my skin to really hydrate at night as it's a great make-up free time for it to renew and replenish (I sound like a beauty ad!). Here is my little display, yes it means more to dust around but it's a small sacrifice to pay to keep my skin in good condition!
