Glow-in-the-dark Accessorize Boots

Just a quick post today, saw these cute wellies that glow-in-the-dark from Accessorize today, ideal for trick or treating or spooky walks in the dark! You can get them in pink, orange (pictured) or blue, not that you will be able to see the colour in the dark!?!

Ha-Ha-Halloween Treats

I love Halloween, it's one of my favourite times of the year! This is my pick (so far!) of Halloween products, three namely by Lush (the Ghost shower gel smells of lilies and is gorgeous and gentle on my skin) an Emma Bridgewater mug and also a Yankee Candle Witches Brew (the glass is actually black!).

Pink October - Breast Cancer Awareness Month


There's some lovely products out at the moment in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Having had relatives and friends suffer with cancer, I am always keen to donate to Cancer Research and have completed the Race for Life in the past.

Nails inc. are also doing a 'Paint Your Pinkie Pink' campaign including a new 'Pinkie Pink" nail varnish which retails at £11: http://www.nailsinc.com/paintyourpinkiepink

http://www.pinkribbonfoundation.org.uk/supporters-2012/ Has various supporters such as Paul Mitchell, who have also brought out a special pink hair product set and Breast Baubles in a fun package.

These products are going fast, when I visited the Clinique counter for the Chubby Stick there were quite a few stocked and I was told that they had not been selling but am sure that will change! For the record, the stick is amazing, great texture and moisturizing with a light, sheer long lasting colour, this is the first time I have tried one of these and am quite impressed! There are products here to treat every budget, so treat yourself and support a charity at the same time...

Breast Baubles £15 for two

Limited Edition 'Pink Blush' Yankee Candle £19.99

Bobby Brown Pink Peony Collection £35

Origins Make A Difference skin treatment £21

Nails inc. 'Pinkie Pink' £11
Clinique Chubby Stick in Plumped Up Pink with Carry Case £16

Apple Cake - Applelicious

So we are dealing with quite a few apples from our garden now, so many we don't know what to do with them, but now we have a long waiting list from friends and colleagues so they should all be gone shortly.
Thought I would make the most of it and make a lovely Apple Cake, I have loved this very much, especially topped with cinnamon, that I have made it twice, and it has always been quick to vanish from the plate.
You can find the recipe here:
