Hello girlies it's the weekend yay! and the start of my week off - so so glad! We're picking up our campervan tomorrow, ever so excited! Unfortunately it's not the traditional ones, they are modern versions but will still be fun! I really can't wait. Still have no idea where we're going hahah - where do you recommend? Where in England do you love going?

On a completely unrelated note ... I recently found out that I am rather high maintenance when it comes to my skin (thanks to a routine instilled at age 11 by my then beautician mother). I'm quite surprised to find that some people gets cleansing and moisturising confused and only use wipes to remove their make up! It is really important to ensure that every trace of make up should be removed so your skin can breathe & regenerate itself whilst you sleep. I can totally understand that at the end of a day all you want to do is just curl up in your pjs & fall asleep, but you might end up with oily skin & clogged pores resulting in breakouts & spots! I just love the feeling of my skin being soft after removing all the dirt from my face.

Here are some products I highly recommend:

Boots No. 7 Cleanse & Care Eye Make Up Remover

This is the best eye make up remover product I have ever used. As it is oil-based, it literally remove every trace of make up ... even the thickest water proof mascara!

Remember to not rub your eyes! Leave the cotton pad on your eyes for a few seconds, and slide it downwards gently. You can also massage it in circular motion gently to help lift make up off. The skin (and muscle) around your eyes are a lot more fragile than the rest of your face so great care is needed - that is why we need eye cream to avoid wrinkles & crow's feet!

This is just from 1st attempt - 3 little squirts from the bottle! As you can see it has lifted off a lot of make up!

There we go after 2nd attempt!

I would also recommend Bodyshop's Camomile Gentle Eye Make Up Remover. After that I use a cream cleanser to clean the rest of my face. I'm currently using Pond's one with green tea extract - it smells divine! (I can't find a picture but will upload one tomorrow). Then I finish off with make up wipes to ensure no traces are left behind!

What is your before beddies routine and your favouritest products to remove make up?

New hair

Yep, new hair! Was quite shocked initially with the drastic change but I love it!! Still need to get used to the hair touching the eyes!

Also coloured it to a lighter shade of brown

In my Tigers shirt

So what do you think? Still a bit odd when I look in the mirror and dont see my eyebrows!

Car Boot

We did two car boots this weekend - was so much fun...but waking up at 6am on a Sunday is not!!! Amazingly 50p and £1 really does add up!! This charming old man started chatting me up whilst we were trying to set it all up, telling us stories of the war and Japan etc ... I would have loved to hear more but we were so busy! He said 'how much for the lovely lady??' to which I replied ... 'Have you got a Mastercard?' 'Nope, do you take American Express?' 'Sorry no.' haha bless him!!

Also I have new hair!! Might post it later or tomorrow!

Have you sold at car boots? What was your best find??
