Over the last 10 months I have taken thousands (and this is no exaggeration) of photographs of my baby girl. Facebook currently hosts a monstrous photographic journal of my daughter’s daily-doings. This may seem completely indulgent (and you would be correct) but Facebook is a great way of keeping Amelia’s overseas family in the loop.
There is a definite nip in the air now and, although I use lip balm all year round, in the autumn and fast-approaching winter, I won’t go out without one.
I love my mascara. It thickens, lengthens and dresses up my eyelashes with just a single stroke. It’s the finishing flourish to any outfit, day or night, and makes one feel presentable, even when you’re only dressed in jeans and a T-shirt.
DIY Acupressure and the tantalising phrase ‘A good night’s sleep guaranteed or your money back’ was the first thing that caught my attention. Not that I suffer from insomnia (my broken nights are merely a result of nocturnal visitations from my young children). But my curiosity was piqued by this strident claim. Then further roused by the extraordinary-looking Yantra Mat that this promise referred to.
There’s something about the heel of the foot that resists all taming. No matter how frequently I scrub with a pumice stone or slather on intensive body butter, my heels remain unattractively dry and cracked. It’s not surprising I guess, given the amount of pressure our feet are under – bearing the full weight of the body and constantly on the go. I’m especially conscious of unsightly heels in the summer when I live in flip-flops but even in the autumn or winter, it’s not a great look, if one’s wearing open-backed kitten heels or just au naturel at the swimming pool.
