Style | Lots of Klass . . .

It’s always lovely, but a complete surprise, when you get approached by a brand enquiring whether you would like to collaborate with them because they like what you do. I’m still the person that worries they’ve emailed the wrong person … despite working with a lot of fabulous brands in the past !

Of course it’s not always the right fit for you or your blog . I’ve turned down a few cooking ‘experiences’ and numerous offers of sheepskin slippers.

I don’t cook [ if I can avoid it] and I don’t wear slippers … even of the sheepskin type [ preferring bare feet ]

However when Klass Collection got in touch to see whether I’d like to style some of their latest collection I had a look and spotted a few items that really stood out.

I’ve got to be honest it’s not all for me. At 47 I’m no spring chicken myself but some of the pieces felt a little too ‘mature’ for my taste; BUT there was enough to keep me interested…

Style | The Maxi Skirt …

I was looking through my wardrobe the other day and noted there are several staples that I am missing.

A black maxi skirt for one; something I can just throw on.  Black would be ideal as it goes with most things, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be black. I have loads of jumpers and pretty little tops that are crying out to be worn with something other than my jeans.

I’m not feeling my jeans at the moment and its not because I ate too much over Christmas either. As regular readers will be aware I did a sponsored ‘No cake, chocolate or mince pies’ for the whole duration of December. I swear I’m the only person who actually lost weight over the Christmas holidays and is officially sick of the sight of bananas…. I  raised £500 for The Eve Appeal. Win win.

So back to Maxi skirts I’ve been having a quick ganzy , in-between drinking copious amounts of coffee and trying to make sense of ‘Pretty Little Liars’ .

Atomic Blonde … 

Last night was ‘Date Night‘.

What with one thing and another ‘we‘ tend to get side-lined. We decided Date Night should become [where possible] a weekly affair. Sometimes life gets in the way of romance doesn’t it? We made a promise to make time for each other.

You may all say awwwww… 

or be sick. 

Your choice. 

The BF mentioned the cinema. I pulled a ‘urgh’ face. I was tired I told him , I’d fall asleep as soon as the lights went down . It would be a total waste of money and let’s face it going to the cinema these days isn’t a cheap affair.

Sometimes I’m mardy and not much fun! As you can see my can’t be arsed mood isn’t shifting very fast.

Then I remembered that Atomic Blonde with the beautiful Charlize Theron was showing at Vue, Meadowhall.

I’d been dying to see this film after seeing the trailers. There was only one problem the BF was keen to see bloody Spider-Man .

Some quick thinking on my part and the promise of some naked, lesbian sex scene action sealed the deal. The BFs eyes lit up and the decision was made… Spider-Man could wait! Continue reading

Cleverly Wrapped…

When the guys from Cleverly Wrapped got in touch to see whether I’d like to choose something from their website to style I almost snapped their hands off.

Regular readers of the blog will know I adore a cheeky little neck scarf.

So that’s how Tracey met ‘Jungle Silk Scarf’ it’s everything I look for in a scarf. A bright, colourful little square of silk beauty.

Friday Favourites … 

Hello …

I hope you’ve all been enjoying the last couple of days of sunshine, it’s been glorious hasn’t it? Saying that its currently raining here.

Summer lasted all of 3 days!

 I jest … hopefully it will visit us again soon.

I’m sure I’m due another favourites post though I can’t seem to get these out in any particular schedule. My current mind set is ‘all over’ something I’m hoping will work itself out when mums out of hospital and back at home with us.

So here are the things that I’ve been enjoying / have made me smile recently.

A few of these items are newbies and a few I’ve been using for years but thought they deserved a mention.

First up …

ALL IN ALL – Temple Spa £20.00 – 300 ml

As you may ,or may not be aware, I used to be a Temple Spa Consultant. Despite loving the majority of the products I was rubbish at hosting parties. 

Basically I used to have panic attacks and talk about 100 miles an hour. Public speaking terrifies me and people were mostly confused. 

I tried but for my own sanity I gave it up as a bad job but continued purchasing some of the goodies.

All in All is one of the products I fell in love with and still use religiously.

It’s a multipurpose balm that can be used on your hair, body and face.

I use it to souly moisturise my body but it can be used as a face balm and a hair conditioner.

It contains essential oils and botanicals – lemon, nutmeg, coriander and guaiacum. It has the most delicious smell which I love slathering all over and which more importantly lingers on your skin. If you catch me sniffing my arm … that’s why! 

Most definitely my favourite body moisturiser. EVER.
