Fake tan for fair skin…

Fake tanning when you have fair skin can be risky business. It is something that is so easy to get wrong and believe me when I say, in the past I had had my share of disasters. As I have gotten older I have learnt to embrace my fair skin a little more and I know what works for my skin to hopefully avoid those tanning blunders. I am not huge on laying out in the sun for hours for 1 I get bored and 2 I do worry about the damage and ageing effects of the sun. Saying that…

I have love Next for children’s clothes since…

We were invited to a fun event in Winchester to celebrate the day; with strictly no…

Keeping Cool This Summer

We’ve all done that typically British thing haven’t we? We’ve longed for the sun to make an appearance for the last 9 months, enjoyed it for a day and since done nothing but moan about it being ‘too hot’. I hold my hands up and admit I have said it! I love the long hot summer days but after a week of sleepless hot, sticky nights I need a break. When your abroad and all you need to do it dip in and our of a pool it is perfect, all the hotels have air con and you can actually…
