Clearing the clutter… My wardrobe over haul

My friend Sue has put me to shame and has recently had a de-clutter getting rid of over half her wardrobe. When we met up last week she enthused about how good it felt to get rid of the old to make way for the new.

She has ‘cleansed’ her wardrobe and it was genuinely making her happy?

Alien to me…

I’m a hoarder.

I chuck nothing!

I always fear I’ll regret it and that said items will suddenly come back ‘in’ and have their day. My yellow shoes are testament to this!! Continue reading

RAMBLING…its been a while – talking skincare, lippy, mothers and a dog called Mollie.

We’ve not had a catch up for ages. So shall we talk and rectify the situation ?

Grab yourself a coffee and get comfy…

Firstly a little update. It’s skin related. No surprise there then I hear you cry – I am bordering on obsessed. Most people chase the dream. I chase perfect skin.

So as you may, or may not be aware, for the last few weeks I have been using a couple of Pixi products. I can officially confirm that I am now a Pixi Glow Cleanser & Glow Tonic convert .

Makeup Room Makeover – Part 1

I’ve been busy. Very busy.

I have a spare bedroom that has become a bit of a junk/storage/cat bed room. It’s been a waste of space for the last eight years as I can count on one hand the number of times it’s been slept in.

So I put my thinking cap on and used all of my persuasive powers on the other other half to let me turn it into a makeup room for myself and my daughter. A bit indulgent I know but hey, at least it will get plenty of use.

I’ve had in my mind how I want it to look and as soon as I had the say so from him indoors, I started the ball rolling before he had chance to change his mind. Anyway he has the garage for all his crap tools so I think it only fair that I have somewhere for mine!

The junk got chucked, the exact shade of paint got chosen and I got cracking…

First things first. Dressing table…I needed two so I went for two very plain high gloss black ones that will sit side by side along one wall.  Cheap and chearful but practical with drawer storage to hide anything not pretty enough to be on show. I got these ones from Homebase

And this is what they look like in reality (after three hours of self assembly and a few moans and groans about my bad back) – surprisingly sturdy considering the price…

As it’s only a small box room, I decided to paint three of the walls white to keep it light and airy and introduce colour on just one feature wall. I also discovered decorating (painting) isn’t my forte – that cutting into the corners lark is a bit of a bugger with bad eyesight and a not so steady hand. Get ya sunnies ready…

Cerise as cerise can be!

I wanted a kind of ‘boudoir’ feel to the room so had decided on Louis style chairs.
