Official 2015 calendar cover , moving dogs and chilling out down south !
It’s been a lovely lazy (and rare) week spent in Essex with my mum, brother and Mark. I was in Manchester on Sunday and then we drove down with some more things from my house and set about buying lots more nice things like bedding , utensils and glasses..
It’s definitely starting to feel a lot more like home now – and that’s because the best thing that happened this week… my babies have moved in!! Yes!
Phoebe and Pip have arrived! They are so excited about their new residence and spent hours looking around and sniffing everything ha ha. It feels like I have really moved now that they are here!
Here’s me with Pip (She’s the naughty one) who looks very settled doesn’t she!
And here she keeping guard by the door – in her little bed of course!
Here they both are together! Phoebe is so patient with Pip, who is so cheeky and barks at everyone (except me!) Phoebe is very well behaved and even does tricks but Pip doesn’t do any, she does exactly what she wants to do ..
Here’s me and my amazing mummy Jackie, she has helped me loads with the new place ( thanks mum!)… we treated ourselves to a Dominos takeaway with champagne on Wednesday night…
In this piccy I’m wearing some of my new lovely lounge wear from Peace Love Clothing – the company I told you about last week. I love it – so comfy! www.peaceloveworld.com
Seeing as this week was a chill out week, I have spent a bit of time enjoying my beauty products and catching up on my sleep. Haven’t been to the gym, it’s actually been nice not doing much at all. I recently got a new wand for my hair -‘from a company called Cloud 9 and have been having a play around with that. It’s very good and heats up in about 7 seconds… This one is great for creating loose curls – The Waving Wand . www.cloudninehair.com… A good beauty investment !
Also tried out this 3d mascara – from Younique which you apply after putting on one coat of normal mascara. You put the gel on and then coat your lashes in the teeny tiny fibres after . It certainly gave the illusion if my lashes being fuller and a bit longer, but some of the fibres did come off under my eyes after a while. It’s good if you need a bit of oompf though and dont like wearing false lashes!
I’ve also been trying out some new face masks as my skin has gone a bit dry and patchy recently (maybe I’m allergic to the British sun ? After all it’s been a full 2 weeks since I was abroad last ha ha)
I tried this one by Kiehls – it’s an Algae Mask! Yes Algae as in green gungy seaweed type stuff. It smelt a bit fresh, but wow my skin felt smooth afterwards. It’s not the cheapest but the tub is big and a little goes a long way… Also tried No Puffery by Origins , it was quite sticky but there was a decent improvement and my skin looked a lot clearer afterwards.
For a bargain face mask that will give you instant results I would suggest Soap & Glory – No Clogs Allowed . It’s a tenner and well worth it because it does refine your pores and leave your skin with a healthy glow. It goes on a bit like a mud mask and heats up as you apply it but soon cools down. I really like it – it’s a good one to use before a big night out , and he Morning after the night before for that matter!!
Before I sign off I can FINALLY show you the front page of my first ever official calendar. I’m SO happy with the pictures! You can pre order it from www.danilo.com and it’s available to buy from HMV, Clintons, Play.com and Calendar Club from Sep 8th…
If you remember – I went to Pollensa Majorca back in April to shoot it with my creative team of Alan, Laura, Fay, Lorraine and Collette. We worked hard on the images, and deciding which ones made the calendar was VERY tough. Hope you like it!!!!
Until next week
