Mostly Lovin’: My Anna Walker London Tote

Classic Brunswick

I am super in love with my personalised Anna Walker London Classic Brunswick Tote . Crafted from Italian vegetable-tanned leather with raw edge finishing and interior any item purchased from Walker can be personalised with gold foil or blind debossed lettering for no additional charge! It is wonderful to come across this level of skill and craftsmanship right here in the City.

I have my eye on a large Oban Pouch in Rust for a future purchase from but to be quite honest I could happily purchase the entire collection! x

Mostly Lovin’: Forte Organics

I am loving my Forte Organics samples. The Citrus Body Cream is deeply moisturising and smells divine. I have been using the Almond and Hazelnut face scrub once a week for the last month and I have been pretty impressed with the nourishing and clarifying effects. Please feel free to send me more Mr Forte!

V’s Skinade Tips

Recently I have heard a lot of chatter as to the benefits of using Skinade – a dietary supplement which promises to transform your skin. It comes in the form of a liquid supplement come sachet which is added to water. Skinade claims to allow you to “drink your way to younger looking skin in just 30 days“! That’s quite a claim so I thought I had better see what all the fuss is about.
Unfortunately, I had not anticipated the somewhat excessive price tag of £99 for a 30 day supplement…but then I had an idea…

The manufactures of Skinade very kindly list the constituent active vitamins and minerals contained in the supplement so I thought why not buy the individual vitamins such as; Vitamin C, MSM (a type of organic sulphur which improves skin elasticity), Mangosteen, Vitamin B complex, Omegas 3 & 6, amino acid and L-lysine?

I have been using the below concoction of supplements for a month now and I have to say I have noticed some real changes. There is a very real radiance or sheen to the skin. My complexion appears less prone to monthly breakouts and dry patches. In total I spent a mere £35 on a selection of good quality vegan supplements. It definitely seems to make sense to give ones skin a helping hand. Bisous


Mostly Lovin:’ Aveda After Sun Hair Mask

Moisture Magic

Summer is great isn’t? The balmy summer evenings, blue skies as far as the eye can see and hair as dry as freeze-dried hay bales! Alors, I have elected to bring in the big-guns to impart some much needed moisture into my weary locks. Enter Aveda’s after Sun Hair Mask. This rich, creamy mask helps to sooth and hydrate sun damaged hair. When at home I like to smother my ends and pile into a loose bun. I can then get on with the day and rinse when I feel my hair has been suitably satiated.

This mask is also great as an overnight hair treatment for particularly sun-damaged locks. Apply liberally and pop on a shower cap overnight. Probably best not to invite the Mr over that night though… x

Le Weekend

Bon week-end à tous!

This weekend I will mostly be devouring these cook books I picked up in my local Cancer Research shop. Cooking at my leisure is quite simply one of my favourite ways to unwind. Of course, the resulting foodie treats are a bonus! Kisses.
