Returning to my Favourite Beauty Brands

Beauty, LIFESTYLE

As you may see I don’t actually take about beauty that much on here. It isn’t because I don’t like or use it, because I do. I developed a love of beauty and skincare after a Media Makeup Course and from working in spas and have found many products that I have absolutely loved. It is more because I haven’t recently been using a product that I would ‘write home about’ as they say. In the last few years I have noticed that it takes longer for my skin to recover from a spot and longer for it to erase a spot scar. This means that I need products that can perform without wasting my money trying to find them and why I am returning to the brands I used to use and love when my skin was at its best.

I recently posted this photo on Instagram after using the Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel. It wasn’t the first time I had used the product and I have been using it sparingly for a while not wanting to run out. I thought about this for a while and realised I am doing that classic thing of ‘saving things for best’. I have decided not to do this any longer and especially not with something as important and fragile as looking after my skin.

As well as skincare I also took a look at the makeup I was using and purchased a BareMinerals collection to get me restarted in a previous beauty routine. This routine was the one I used for around 8 years and in the run up to our wedding. Between a few products and a consistent regime I found what worked for my skin and what I am now returning to after 2-3 years away from it.

Let’s start with the reasons I moved away from this routine.

  1. I had gotten married. Every bride wants their skin to be perfect for their big day and I believe I had achieved this. I then simply used the products until they ran out which leads me onto…
  2. The cost. The products that I like and which work for me are not super cheap. They are what I deem to be mid-high price point when you think that you can actually pick up a product for £5-10 instead of the £25-30 for makeup that I have recently paid and £40+ for skincare. With house renovations then to pay for make-up and skincare had to be budgeted somewhat and the more costly products were the first to be a taken from the shopping list.
  3. Everything was great. My skin and hair were the healthiest that they had ever looked. And you know why? Because I was doing everything I should. Fun Fact: It only stays that way if you continue with it.

We had bought a home which needed a LOT of work and my priorities changed with that. I was still gifted products for birthdays and Christmas and like to treat myself every now and again but a bi-monthly to monthly purchase was not on the cards for a long time.

Which brings me up to the present. I feel that as I am reaching my 30th *sharp intake of breath I know* year I feel that I want and need to be correctly taking care of my skin once again and that I can no longer waste spend money on products that are not doing the job. Through house renovations I have found that although we are spending more money upfront on the times that we do the quality is better and we spend less in the long run on a job well done the first time. This also follows a quote I found and loved recently “Buy cheap, buy twice”. It epitomises what I am trying to put across here and I am finding it more relevant in the products I have been purchasing over the last couple of years.

As well as make up and skincare I am also talking about hair care. I have changed from cheaper dupes to Tres Emme and been using their shampoo and conditioner for two months now and can certainly see the difference in the appearance in my hair. As with my skincare I chose the Tres Emme for dry and damaged hair, hoping to repair years of dryness.

So, with this in mind I am now returning to my favourite, tried and tested beauty and skincare brands. I can not wait to return to that glow and flawless finish every time which in turn will save me time (mainly beauty; not spent trying to correct or blend a incorrect foundation shade, attempting to wipe too-obvious blusher off or having to reapply later in the day) and money (mainly skincare; spending on products that simply do not work as they say they should and then either wasting it or using it for the sake of it and still having to find another of the product).

Right now I am going to see what is online and what would make a great addition to my skincare routine. If you have found any products you can not be without let mew know about them. You can also find me on Instagram @lorenjessica_ to chat there too.

Early Bird vs Night Owl

LIFESTYLE, Wellbeing

Before going any further which one are you?

Throughout my younger years and mid-20’s I was categorically a night owl. I would stay awake watching Netflix and sometimes stay up even after my husband had gone to bed, simply because I wasn’t tired.

I was never a morning person even when my husband would attempt to wake me up to go on a run at 6am, I wasn’t a morning person even an hour (or two) after having that morning cup of tea and I certainly wasn’t a morning person whenever I was awoken by Mia, our chocolate labrador, decided she wanted an early breakfast – which is almost every day.

As you may be able to tell from the above it was my husband that was the morning person and loved to rise with the sun and say things like ‘the early bird catches the worm’ or something similar that is supposed to help. This has actually now flipped a little and it is me that heads to bed around 9pm, stirs the next day at 5:45am and is ready to go downstairs by 6am to make that first brew of the day.

I completely understand that there is a huge difference to this in Summer and Winter and I may revert back to my previous self, staying up until 11pm and not feeling myself until 11am the following day, however I will try my upmost to stick to the routine that I have currently been doing.

9pm – I tend to go to bed and read or listen to a Headspace ’Sleepcast’. When reading it usually takes me around half an hour to fall asleep as my mind is still whirring for a little while after.

I find I sleep better after we have taken the dog for an evening walk or I have exercised earlier on in the day and a good nights rest does help me to feel fresh and provide me with a go-get-em attitude. I would love the keep the pattern going to become an early bird for the foreseeable future.

Don’t forget, let me know which one you are and we’ll chat about it. I’m also on Instagram @lorenjessica_ if you want to chat over there too.

Reviewing My 30 before 30 List

LIFESTYLE

Well this is a tough one. I recently wrote a 30 before 30 list, ya know before everything, thinking I had from January until September to fit tonnes of activities in, days out and travel experiences in. As the current situations stands it does not look like we are going to be exploring a new place or treading familiar paths anytime soon, which is fine, it just makes me want to evaluate my previous list, and change it a little. So with this in mind, it won’t be a 30 before 30 list anymore, it will be a ‘When Lockdown Has Fully Lifted and It Is Completely Safe To Go Out’ list or the ‘WLHFLAIICSTGO’ list whichever rolls off the tongue easier. 

  1. Disneyland Paris Trip – as you may be aware we had our Walt Disney World Florida holiday cancelled due to the lockdown and as it may be off the cards for a while I would love to visit Disneyland Paris as soon as possible. 
  2. Head into Derbyshire on the motorbike. As passenger on the back of my husbands motorbike to be more precise. Spending the day drinking tea and cake in Bakewell, having some chips in Matlock Bath and take a walk around Chatsworth. 
  3. Visit friends in London. And hopefully go decorate some biscuits at Biscuiteers or go and do The Crystal Maze experience with the husbands.
  4. Go to Birmingham with my sister. Go shopping in the Bullring and watch a film at the Luxe cinema there. 
  5. Treat myself to a spa session.(It will be for my birthday after all.) I would love to have an overnight stay in a spa hotel and get to fully relax with some treatments and a sauna session.
  6. Take a friend to afternoon tea. Preferably somewhere we haven’t been before to have a catch up and eat all of the cake they have under those glass domes along with plenty of sandwiches of course.
  7. Spend a weekend in the Lake District. Take a tour around The Lakes Gin Distillery and go on plenty of long walks -not in that order though.

For now that is it. I think apart from seeing family, which will be first on the agenda when it is safe to do so, they are the places that I have missed the most over the past few weeks. I also read a book recently ‘The List That Changed My Life’ which had a similar narrative of things to do before the character reached 30. Completely different to my list however inspiring all the same.

You might also notice that there aren’t 30 anymore. Due to the shorter amount of time and the fact it will be September before we know it I have had to narrow it down. This hasn’t bothered me to be honest, I might not be able to get 30 things in but I may get other events in that are completely unplanned but that I am 100% grateful for. An impromptu picnic or an evening spent with friends at a great restaurant, sometime the best times are the surprise ones, what do you think?

Have you had to alter any plans or experiences? Or create a new ’30 before 30’ list?

Reviewing my hydrating travel essentials and a few things I learnt about skincare

My Travel Beauty Essentials and a Few Life Lessons

Beauty, LIFESTYLE

This post contains affiliate links.

To put this post across properly I am going to have to relive two of my top painful holiday beauty moments. And I mean painful. That is why I have some strong do’s and dont’s for myself now I am old (and hopefully wiser) for when I think skincare either abroad or even on a UK staycation. 

Let us first go through the things that I simply have to pack when I am away. I have a dehydrated skin type and this can get worse or improve depending on the environment. 

Warm weather = drinking more water/juice = hydrated. 

Cold weather = more hot tea and coffee = dehydrating.

No matter where I go or what the weather though I always take a face moisturiser. If we are travelling somewhere cold or taking a UK trip I may pack more. Although it does lean towards the pricey side for a product the Elemis S.O.S Cream is my all time favourite. Years ago when I first started using it, it was in my mums collection and we had been told to use it as a spot cream. It was only when I read the product after I had made a purchase myself a few years after that I found out its intended use was for hydration purposes. Classic lesson learnt there – always read the instructions. Whilst I am waiting to repurchase the S.O.S Cream I am using these mini’s that were given to me by a friend. I didn’t really understand the purposes of a mist before but for that little hydration through the day I am now loving it.

Elemis Mini Travel Size Products

For my face, moisturiser is always closely followed by a high SPF and since last year I have loved The Body Shop® Skin Defence SPF 50+PA++++ which has pretty much only recently come back in stock. On a shopping trip before last I did have to purchase The Body Shop® Vitamin C with SPF 30 PA++++ which is a great product and I would repurchase as it gives me that glow I am always after but I am glad that the original has returned as it has the higher SPF.

The Body Shop Skin Defence SPF and Vitamin C SPF

Now are we ready for an uneducated/unthinking mistake? I once went on holiday with my best friend. For some reason we hadn’t a moisturiser between the two of us and my skin was definitely drying from too much sun that week. What I had thought to bring with me though was The Sanctuary Body Lotion, so in my naive way, thought that would do the same job. I took a 50p size blob onto my hand and promptly slapped it on my cheeks to soothe my dry skin. IT HURT. Oh Wow it hurt. I washed it off almost immediately but even still had to sit with a cool damp flannel covering my whole face for what must have been hours in the afternoon. What did I learn from that experience? Body lotion is nothing at all the same as face moisturiser.

M & S Ragdale Hall Lavender Hand Cream

The last thing on my list has to be something to help me sleep at night and I am obsessed with anything that smells like lavender. Last Christmas I was gifted a Marks and Spencers Ragdale Hall Gift Set which included the Sleep Lavender Hand Cream. Not only does it have a great scent but it also moisturisers my dry hands as I get some rest. As my years increase (hello almost 30 here) I understand more and more the importance of staying hydrated, both inside and out. When my hands are suffering from dryness it can literally look like my hands are 30 years older than the rest of me. It’s uncomfortable and slightly embarrassing and why I appreciate a good, moisturising hand cream.

Millie Vanilla’s Cupcake Cafe by Georgia Hill

Books, LIFESTYLE, Uncategorized

*Spoiler alerts*

Cakes? Check. Love interest? Check. Pet dog? Check. Seaside town? Check.

Yep this book has ’em and it was the perfect read to completely relax and fall into the story. Millie Vanilla’s Cupcake Cafe follows Millie running her beach side cafe and follows the high and lows that this can bring. With a new larger coffee shop moving into town Millie has to find a way of keeping her smaller, yet more personal cafe afloat. I love a story that includes someone running a business so I immediately wanted to keep reading. The way it is wrote also makes the storyline easy to follow without too much chopping and changing and too many characters. Reading for me is all about finding a relaxing moment and getting absorbed and I can’t tend to do that if there is too much to follow.

Another part to the book that I enjoy are the multiple diy projects. Whether it’s for the cafe having a revamp or the hotel having a complete renovation right through to the homemade bread and local artwork there is something going on throughtout the story to feel inspired by and feeling the urge to start a project. All of the characters get involved in some kind of craft from sewing bunting to painting artwork and the novel has a good community spirit vibe. It all adds to the homemade skill effect of the story and it leaves the reader full of inspiration as well as entertained.

Millie Vanilla’s Cupcake Cafe holds plenty of love stories within its pages too. There are the two pooch loving pensioners that have a dislike to love relationship which is sweet (excuse the pun) as anything. Then the younger, university age characters who aren’t sure what they want and of course, Millie herself. It starts in the cafe with a classic meeting between Millie and a tall, dark, handsome stranger. Of course, it was never going to be a smooth boy meets girl scenario and not before long there is a an incident to rock the boat. Jed, being the handsome business type that he is, actually works for Millie’s rival – new in town/mass produced/cheaper – coffee shop.

There is also another romance between Millie’s best friend and her old school crush. Both actors the characters rekindle their old romance and Millie is the one that is picking up the pieces and trying to support her best friend throughout. It brings a lovely friendship storyline the book and a little drama. This storyline and the one of Millie’s new mermaid-esque cafe assistant are what I can imagine would shake a little seaside town. It add complexity to the characters and, I would argue, a little more adult behaviour than what it could have been without them.

I haven’t yet read a book in the ‘chick-lit’ genre where love didn’t prevail and thankfully it does here too. It makes it a light read (even though realistically its probably one of the thicker books in the genre I have read/seen) and good to grab a tea and slice of cake with.

The list that changed my life by Olivia Beirne

The List That Changed My Life by Olivia Beirne

Books, LIFESTYLE

Having not heard of Olivia Beirne before this book I did not know what to expect. Even after reading the first few pages I was still unsure of how the writing was going to continue. The title is catchy and intriguing and the blurb definitely caught my attention. You begin to wonder what the life changing event is that means the character Georgia must fulfil her sisters ‘before 30’ bucket list. 

The whole book is written like nothing I have read in a long while. It is a novel of its time with references to modern culture such as the X factor, Don’t tell the Bride and Strictly Come Dancing among others. I enjoyed these references because I can relate to them being of my generation and think I would read it again in the future because I’ll ‘get’ them. I do wonder if maybe I wouldn’t have enjoyed it as much if I didn’t understand the references or they tune out a future market.

The theme of the book, as well as connecting sisters through life, has a constant draw to the diary of our main character. This theme also comes across in the writing style itself. I haven’t read a book in a while that reflected diary entries and I enjoyed it. The writing is friendly and colloquial and a breath of fresh air in a market where many books have a similar style or storyline. I just also want to make a reference about the use of exclamation marks. Now I am a fan of an exclamation mark but I know many reputably despise them. Each to their own but knowing this I was very surprised to see how many were used throughout. Of course it brings back the idea that it is Georgia herself writing the diary entries and writing for yourself you can say it how you want and I guess that this is why it felt different to many. 

Referring to the story itself I love how the two sisters have opposing ways of looking at life. Georgia, our narrator, lives the London money struggle, dirty flat life along with trying to keep up with friends whilst being there for her sister Amy. Amy is a PE teaching, fitness fanatic who always looks on the bright side and ways to overcome situations rather than mull in them. A recurring theme in her character is ‘mind over matter’ until she is diagnosed with MS and sees a change in her lifestyle and ability to maintain independence. This is where the story takes a switch and it is Georgia who tries to be the one that attempts to cheer her sister up and gives her some of her own wise words. I enjoyed the turns throughout and the positivity bug constantly jumps between them both, showing that there is a little bit of each in everyone.

The List that changed my life by Olivia Beirne book

I love the premise of the story and the idea of a ‘before 30 bucket list’, I even wrote my own at the beginning of the year (skydives not included) and at this current time have too many still waiting to be achieved. I enjoyed seeing the idea of a 10k run evolve into a charity event and even further into a proposal, apologies, happy tears and friends coming together and it does *almost* make me want to bake a Victoria sponge cake. Hey, I said almost.

It is an inspiring read and can be relatable for many either from a big life changing perspective or even finding that you are Georgia, happy getting by with a steady job, flat and colleagues or Amy, full of life and energy and pushing to achieve. The sisters want the best for each other and that’s relatable for families on any level.

It isn’t of its genre without a relationship blooming and The List That Changed My Life delivers on this too. Jack is at first mistaken for someone else from a dating app who then Georgia has to work a little too close to, SPOILER her boss’ brother. Whilst it is all going smooth as a reader I am completely aware that this can not last through the entire book.  I can’t remember a time when I actually held my breath during reading but I did when the ‘perfect romance’ twist came. I don’t want to completely spoil it so won’t say what it is but I can say that I was genuinely surprised. Of course it all has to work out in the end (and it does, thankfully).

A Country Escape by Katie Fforde

A Country Escape by Katie Fforde

Books, LIFESTYLE

I do love a good book about living in the countryside and A Country Escape by Katie Fforde definitely delivered. Not just chickens and a country manor either more like a working farm including quite demanding cows.

The story takes you through the life of Fran finding out she is due to inherit the ageing farm from a long lost relative including the very expensive to keep cows. Moving from the big city life she had in London to take herself on this next adventure she soon finds it a little harder with more work than she imagined initially.

Fran has to find a way of keeping the farm in profit within a year or the inheritance is no longer valid. She also has to keep another male relative at bay who has come from the woodwork and simply wants to sell the land for a lump sum with no interest in the family and farm history. The catch here is Amy, owner of the farm, almost wants to give it to a male heir (even if he is a snake in the grass).

There of course has to be an eligible bachelor in the story somewhere and he comes in the form of Anthony. An attractive, farm owner himself that knows the business and although Fran did not want to take his help at first she finds herself falling for him, his helpful nature and tries to ignore the fact she believes he wants to take the inheriting land for himself. Fran sees him in different lights as they hand rear new born puppies overnight and he helps her to renovate the farm to get her cheese business up and running.

This was something I thoroughly enjoyed in A Country Escape. The cheese business that Fran wants to set up to support the farm and keep the renowned quality cows inspires the entrepreneurial spirit and makes me want to move to the country and set up shop. I also loved the aspect of starting from scratch renovating the farm and doing up the farm house and could have and aspect of this in every book I read.

Our main character has the support of many friends and makes a few more after taking the leap to move whilst proving herself and her drive to keep the farm thriving. Throughout there was a couple of times where I believed this circumstance may not come to fruition but I was happy with the outcome and I shall be saving this book to read again and sharing it with my mum. I will also be definitely looking out for more to read by Katie Fforde as I found her writing easy to follow and with a strong storyline throughout.

Have you read anything by Katie Fforde? Or have any other recommendations?

The Heavenly Italian Ice Cream Shop

Books, LIFESTYLE

This post contains affiliate links.

You know how some books just stay longer with you than others, this is one of them for me. Recalling this book came super easy and I know it was only the end of last year that I read it but the amount I read sometimes they mingle together, not this one.

The Heavenly Italian Ice Cream Shop. It mixes two of my favourite things. Italy and Italian ice cream. I have to say that the best we’ve probably had when we were away is from a shop in Venice.

Bringing it back, this book travels between the UK and Italy and follows the stories of two sisters. One, Imogen, a traveller, never someone to stay in one place for too long finds herself seemingly stuck. The other sister Anna, wife of an Italian man, starts a journey of moving to Sorrento to open an ice cream parlour.They two stories intertwine beautifully and I never found myself lost or wondering who was friends with each character. I recently put down a book because I couldn’t wrap my head around the characters and just wanted to read to unwind.

Imogen’s story takes her on a life changing path that questions her current job and her relationship. Always the ‘flight risk’ of the two sisters she has a reputation of leaving at a moments notice and not being the reliable one of the pair. Anna’s tale takes her character from the sturdy career running the ice cream parlour in Brighton to starting a new business in Italy. The saving grace here is that her husband Matteo comes from a family of successful ice cream store holders. The catch is that Anna wants to make these venture succeed through their own hardwork and without unwelcome pressure from Matteo’s family. The story takes you through the twists and turns of Anna having an overbearing mother-in-law and a sister-in-law needing a friend to turn to.

As well as the sisters storylines the book takes you through family members’ and friends’ adventures. The uncle that runs a guest house, Imogen’s boyfriend and his expanding surf shop and the romantic tale of Evie and a long lost Italian love.

One thing I did enjoy about this novel is that it doesn’t just speak of relationships in a guy meets girl kind of way but also of small businesses, travelling and finding out what you are passionate about in life. It touches more on the relationships between married couples and bonds between family and friends than it does in other classic ‘chick-lit’ and I appreciated this little breath of fresh air.

I will definitely be reading The Heavenly Italian Ice Cream Shop again in the future but unfortunately for me I don’t actually think I will be in Italy.

The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice

The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice

Books, LIFESTYLE

This post contains affiliate links.

You can see from the pictures that this is a well read book. I have owned it for a few years now and read it multiple times, it is definitely one of my favourites.

The story follows Penelope growing up and finding her feet in the era post war with a new friend, Charlotte, at her side. It covers the glamour of the time with cocktail parties, the constant need for a new outfit and how everyone knows it is all about looking the part and being seen. I absolutely love this aspect of it and this can span over multiple decades finding links in any time. Far from the glamour, Penelope, although living in a grand house with a rich history, has a Mama who is scared to move forward into a modern world and her brother, Inigo who is desperate to lead the way. Penelope is a huge fan of singer and celebrity Johnnie Ray attending concerts and listening to vinyls on repeat and attends school where she learns literature but actually wants to be attending gatherings and climbing the social ladder.

The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets certainly doesn’t fail in terms of bringing the glitz and the glamour and it puts the reader right in the centre of parties in upper class London. It tells of beautiful but damaged actresses, American film producers and famous musicians. Rice gives an edge of realism but in such a dreamy way that I’ve floated around with an air that I’m part of 1950’s high society for days after reading.

The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice

Milton Magna Hall is the home of our main character, her widowed and beautiful Mama and her Elvis loving brother. And a guinea pig. The family are rich enough to have a cook but not enough to repair the damaged, rundown large abode and save it from the leaks, cracks and torn upholstery. The description of the house gives a great insight to what living in a family estate, with no money for the upkeep, can actually mean.

The characters in the story that do have money are Rocky Dakota, American extraordinaire. He’s plays the part for both comfort and fear for other characters in the book and it comes across as if he will sort everything out. Then there is Marina, vulnerable actress but with a definite taste for drama who blames Penelope for stealing her man. Charlotte’s Aunt Clare is a woman of the world without a hint of self doubt and an all knowing of the things that are. Something about this book that I absolutely love are the characters themselves. Gracious and beautiful in places to rash and charmingly abrasive in others.

The story includes tales of love and loss right from the start. The chance meeting with Charlotte leads to her cousin Harry who is, by and large, not your typical tall dark and handsome character. More like the charismatic best friend with a mysterious aura but immediately the reader knows he’s hanging around in the story. Penelope’s Mama and Aunt Clare share someone in common and Harry has his past and future to decide between.

After reading, The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets has me wanting to take to a chaise longue with a martini and slice of cake on a side table, and spend all night at glamorous parties until breakfast at dawn. In equal amounts.

I can do that right?

Chocolate Labrador Dog Friendly Bookstore

The Dog Friendly Bookshop

Books, TRAVEL, UK Places

There is no doubt that I love going into a bookshop. Always have, always will. I’ve enjoyed reading since I can remember and wrote stories and started this blog because I liked to write. In a way it’s therapeutic, in another I like sharing stories and information. In a bookshop you can find every genre you could want from that classic non-fiction, a sports player’s autobiography or even a mini book of quotes to keep you going through those motivation dry spells.

It was in The Cotswolds when I realised Waterstones was a dog friendly shop. I was on my own walking Mia around town and thought I’d nip in to see if they had a certain book I had been looking for. I checked the sign on the door and found that they did in fact allow dogs. This is great news to me as I wouldn’t, couldn’t leave her tied up outside of a shop. It’s sheer luck I’ve never needed the loo whilst out and about because I don’t know what I’d do.

Now Mia is a medium sized dog, being a Labrador and all, and she has a thick saggy tail and she’s not the most graceful of dogs 99% of the time. That tail of hers gets about and those tables in Waterstones can be a little awkward to walk around with a chocolate chunk sometimes but for the most part of we keep her close she’s as good as gold.

Jojo Moyes After You and Coffee
After You by Jojo Moyes

I managed to successfully (and without too many dog related issues) purchase a book, After You by Jojo Moyes to be exact, find a dog friendly pub and sit reading with a cuppa. It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon. I also finished the book and you can read my thoughts here.

It was a few months later in Chesterfield that I realised, on wanting to head into Waterstones, that this one was also dog friendly and that maybe, just maybe, they all are. Hubs was fully prepared to wait outside until I spotted the sign of confirmation and we headed in, he could have been waiting aaages for me to look round so it’s really helpful.

Bookstore cafe
Peppermint tea and a Halloween cookie in Bath

I now find a Waterstones everywhere I go. There was one in Rye when I visited recently, one in Bath which even had a cafe and one on multiple floors in Nottingham. I used to avoid them as I thought they were expensive however now I’d choose this over other high street bookshops. Even though it is a chain each branch is slightly different. I love their handwritten notes, the fact some have cafes (I’d live there), their dog friendly vibe and of course the ease of finding that book I want, or sometimes didn’t know I wanted.

Have you been happy to find out somewhere is dog friendly? Did it make you go more often?

Until next time,
