Lifestyle | Tea in Woodstock

Image
Hi! Mr C and I recently enjoyed a trip to The Feathers in Woodstock courtesy of a fab Groupon deal that I spotted a few months ago. The hotel is based in the heart of Woodstock and not too far from the beautiful Blenheim Palace. If you visit the palace be sure to have a walk around the town, there are lots of great independent boutiques, pubs and restaurants but, beware of the parking, there's not much but its worth it when you do find a spot!       I'm a huge fan of afternoon teas so I was really excited for this one, miniature cakes seem to just get me excited for some reason!   We started off with a choice of tea or coffee, I chose the Earl Grey Tea and Mr C went for coffee. There were other choices of tea but, as I'm not a huge lover of tea, I just went for one that I had tried before. After pouring in my milk Mr C tells me that you are not meant to put it in Early Grey? Is this true? I just can't imagine have my tea without milk....!

Style | Stripes Infinity

Hi!     This is the second skirt that I ordered from Dorothy Perkins. I just happened to see this one as I was browsing and immediately put it in my checkout bag, why? Stripes, that's all! So, unlike the black one I ordered this one is a win! This one (size 24) is more true to size for me, I had no issues getting it over my thighs this time. The waistband does look slightly small when you hold it up but once its on there is a good amount of stretch to it. The only issue that I have with the skirt is that the pattern on the waist band distorts slightly when you have it on, I only noticed this after Mr C had taken millions of photos! Other than that this is lovely skirt, the jersey material makes it so comfortable for wearing all day - especially whilst I was sat down in a hot stuffy office.

Beauty | L A Perfection

Hi!   Last Friday I was kindly invited to the open day for the LA Perfection Skin clinic in Witney. It was so nice to attend an event that was only half an hour away from home and I could drive to!   After a few hours at work I met with my mum and we headed to Witney. I had prepared myself for another spell of rain and thunder so the sunshine and heat as we walked along the high street came as an unexpected surprise, especially when you are dressed in all black!     Once we arrived we went straight into the first treatment room and met with Zoe. She explained to us the process of IPL treatment , I will leave a link to the website as there is a lot of information in case you are not, like me, overly familiar with the treatment. I learnt so much in here, I had never considered the treatment because I had always been told that it was not suitable for black skin tones, however Zoe explained that it could be used on dark skin just at a lower intensity and working very gen
